Re: Biden: Cancels ‘Operation Talon’ Program that Targeted Sex Offenders Living in U.S. Illegally

You have managed to avoid making a single factual statement in this thread. By all means keep going. Let's hear more about "crazy states" like Indiana, that will certainly assure us that you are something more than a smooth-brain partisan dweeb. It is hard to prove something doesn't exist...

Re: Biden: Cancels ‘Operation Talon’ Program that Targeted Sex Offenders Living in U.S. Illegally

Since nobody is pro-rape, and this is all very real, I'm sure these legal professionals represent a bipartisan assortment of AGs from red and blue states, and non-political appointees have cosigned this outrageous stunt by Biden. *reads* No it's partisan Republicans alone from from the crazier state...

Re: Biden: Cancels ‘Operation Talon’ Program that Targeted Sex Offenders Living in U.S. Illegally

Put your clownshoes on and defend the policy, nofun. There was no such program to cancel. It was pretend. So what exactly is Operation Talon and did Biden really cancel it? Here’s what we’ve been able to find out. Operation Talon was planned in the final weeks of the Trump administration. It’s uncl...

Re: This website is unusable

Yeah, respecting the fact that people are donating time to keep it up and running, week-long outages that happen a few times a year isn't tenable. I would prefer we actively hire somebody to keep things up and running (a phpbb2 admin who we can ping when things are down and puts it back up immediate...

His first statement is flatly false so I don't think he understand what's going on. There doesn't appear to be any evidence of a systemwide threat. There are a LOT of finance/econ/market people being interviewed right now, some of whom are saying, "good for Wall Street Bets," but nobody is...

Re: What about that Gamespot stock, eh?

While an individual play may make a huge windfall, returns over time are a function of good consistent decision-making over all bets made over years. It's like a trick move in martial arts or a fancy play in poker. "Ok, nice one, but we keep playing indefinitely." Maybe you win a huge hand...

Happy for the WSB'ers on this one but nearly all of them face wholesale slaughter in the long run and that is sad. The media coverage will contribute to it, which is also a drag.

Typical results among the healthcare folks seem to be zero side effects for 1, but the 2nd is a little tough. Something like...

Re: I suppose we should have a Qanon thr& or something

I do like the idea of the Q leaders telling people, "Well we gave it a shot time to go back to our lives," ignoring the fact that they've been claiming a satanic pedophile ring is taking children.

Bannon pardon

Trump pardoning a rich guy from Wall Street/Hollywood elite for defrauding Trump supporters of money they thought that they were spending on a wall that Trump promised Mexico would pay for is pretty much a perfect last official act.

We have enough N95s for medical use, but not close to enough for non-medical use. I am finding plenty of N95s for my elderly relatives' non-medical use, as well as my own. The supply chain is why CDC/WHO/LOL is recommending cloth masks, and is why N95s are readily available. With the new strain out...

It's been pretty well-established that COVID entered the US through airports. Putting inbound travelers in quarantine was hugely successful in the places that did it. British strain will be the dominant one soon, and is more contagious. Consider investing in PPE if you haven't already. Still dealing...
