What say DUers to this idea for the upcoming Sedition Riots...

Normally, I'm all "free speech, civil rights, limit the cops", but for the upcoming 2 or 3 assaults on our legitimate government, why not use sound weapons?

"A student who went to photograph a Black Lives Matter protest was warned that New York City police might use a sound cannon against demonstrators.
"My friend said, 'If you hear this, plug your ears and run,'" Anika Edrei recalled.

So, when the NYPD fired a Long Range Acoustic Device, or a LRAD, at the demonstration in 2014 in Manhattan, that's exactly what Edrei, 24, did.

After police used the device at the demonstration, which was over a grand jury’s decision not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo in the killing of Eric Garner, “I experienced a pretty strong migraine and dizziness almost immediately,” Edrei told NBC News in an interview.
“I remember sitting down on the side of the street after I had gotten away and feeling very confused,” said Edrei, then a photojournalism student at the International Center of Photography in New York City."

New nutjob video site to replace youtube for the truly demented.

UGEtube. Stands for Utah Gun Exchange.

DON'T GO THERE. I clicked once and will give examples below. Let's not give them the hits.

Is there some kind of delusional paranoia virus to compete with Covid..? Or is the Covid driving people to these hysterical delusions?

"Nothing is what it seems, Trudeau is back in the public view. Don’t believe the illusion. It’s a clone. I’m exposing the fake breach in the US Capitol. It was organized by Demon rats and their Antifa operatives. The fake shooting is also exposed. The woman was not shot dead. The demon rats fell for another sting operation. This time it is going to cause them their lives. It’s checkmate for them. Traitors in the GOP Party exposed. I’m also explaining Trump “so-called” concession message."

"Tory Smith (deceased) adamantly states over and over that Obama and Pence have long histories of pedophilia, rape and the death of many children via his channel on YT under the same name. Tory Smith. He was a victim of child-sex-trafficking. He claimed that he was raped by them both; particularly, Obama who wanted him to be his lover also."

"There has been a secret intelligence agency stationed on mars that has watch this whole thing play out, they are aware of it and rest assured will restore order shortly. You have the word of the martians themselves."

The Simpsons ... the Nostradamus cartoon show did it again....

Season 32, Episode 4

My spouse goes to Raw Story all the time...

I think they're a tabloid site, but it's her baby.

They've been unreachable all day..
Anybody got any info??

Is it just me, or does the "leaked" trump audio seem like it was made in the room where trump was...

...rather than in the room where the GA Sec of State was?

I believe trump's people leaked it. His base only heard an hour of trump's wild assertions. Everything else was just the "deep state" trying to steal the election.
His base ate it up and asked for seconds.

Question: Who pays for Covid care?

Not everybody has insurance, and Covid care... for those who survive and those who don't... is VERY expensive.

Medicaid? Isn't there application/qualification stuff? Wouldn't the hospitals be buried in paperwork... as well as the sick and the dead?

The hospitals can't suck up that kind of expense...

One out of every 1,000 Americans has died of Covid.

From what IHME projects, we can look forward to 2 out of every 1,000 Americans dead from this disease.
More if we don't get our shit together.

One last number .. We are well and truly fucked.
"More than 84.5 million Americans are planning on traveling during the Christmas season as COVID-19 continues to spread across the country. The forthcoming holiday season will likely eclipse Thanksgiving travel, during which more than 50 million holiday travelers passed through TSA checkpoints, despite warnings from the CDC.
Those warnings still apply.
“Travel may increase your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19," the CDC’s updated statement said on Wednesday. “CDC continues to recommend postponing travel and staying home, as this is the best way to protect yourself and others this year.”

Hospitals are already turning patients away....

... the hospitals are already turning away sick people they never would’ve before, because of so few beds remaining.

"....bar for hospitalizing anyone is rising
And likely means more people are suffering, getting worse, or even dying at home
All because our hospitals are really full..."

Secret Executive Orders...PEADs

Everybody NEEDS to read this article. No skimming.
The Presidents - since FDR - have issued secret executive orders that enable them to do just about anything.
They've all used them. trump knows about them... and that scares the shit out of me. It should do the same with you. He still has 50 or so days...

"A few hours before the inauguration ceremony, the prospective president receives an elaborate and highly classified briefing on the means and procedures for blowing up the world with a nuclear attack, a rite of passage that a former official described as “a sobering moment.” Secret though it may be, we are at least aware that this introduction to apocalypse takes place. At some point in the first term, however, experts surmise that an even more secret briefing occurs, one that has never been publicly acknowledged. In it, the new president learns how to blow up the Constitution.

The session introduces “presidential emergency action documents,” or PEADs, orders that authorize a broad range of mortal assaults on our civil liberties. In the words of a rare declassified official description, the documents outline how to “implement extraordinary presidential authority in response to extraordinary situations”—by imposing martial law, suspending habeas corpus, seizing control of the internet, imposing censorship, and incarcerating so-called subversives, among other repressive measures. “We know about the nuclear briefcase that carries the launch codes,” Joel McCleary, a White House official in the Carter Administration, told me. “But over at the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department there’s a list of all the so-called enemies of the state who would be rounded up in an emergency. I’ve heard it called the ‘enemies briefcase.’ ”

Fun facts about turkeys...

A DUer posted a like to a story "Fun facts about turkeys", but the link was dead.
I found another link to that VITAL story.
(I know this isn't the lounge... but... c'mon... we can't focus on the Malignant Mango all the time or we'd go nuts.)
