Help with finding a post

There was a post a while back that basically listed all if the 'socialist' things (like roads, schools, social security so she doesn't have to take care of parents, etc) a Republican person enjoyed and then gets home and sits at the table and comments she is against socialism.

Can someone help me out with a link or the text?

Lawsuits against superspreader events

Someone her may have the legal expertise to answer this.

What potential legal risk is there for the people in charge of super spreader events like Sturgis (or potentially SEC football games).

I am assuming the families of people who dies could try a class action law suit against the organizers for negligence or reckless endangerment that led to death.Might be hard to pin it on them, but seems legally plausible.

Would life insurance companies and medical insurance companies have grounds to go after them?

I could foresee the Presidents of the Big Ten schools saying to the SEC officials -- you know that if you have home games with half capacity (30-55K) that they will be super spreader events. Add another 20-50K of tailgaters and you are looking at some major liability lawsuits. Whatever money that you think you might make on football now will be more than eaten by legal fees and settlements. You might think your fans are true MAGA and are willing to die for your team -- do you think all of their relatives feel the same way? Do the insurance companies who have to foot the bill feel the same way?

Again just curious -- the only things that these people worship is money so what risk of losing it do they have?

October surprise -- courtesy of Cy Vance

Is it too much to hope that the real October surprise given the responses about the Trump corp taxes would be an October indictment of the following: Don Jr, Ivanka,Jared, Eric, (maybe the other spouses/grilfriends) the corporation, and UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR #1 for tax fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, and RICO.

A separate misdemeanor plea deal for the accountant if he testifies truthfully in court against every member of the family.

UI#1 could be described as the CEO of the Trump Corporation who had residence in NY at the time of most of the crimes but now lists legal residence in Florida with a mailing address in the District of Columbia.

8 weeks is plenty of time to get a grand jury.

They could send some of NY finest with arrest warrants to arrest the kids and wives. Might even be a nice photo op.

We may all be doomed.... reflections from a FB interaction

This morning, I made a rare look onto Facebook. I used to only go on Facebook to show pics of my kids doing cool things: scout projects and events, band concert, going to camp, etc. Lately I have looked at what others have posted and made a few comments.

One of my best friends from HS had posted a questionable study about hydroxychloroquine and another one of her friends asked: What does this mean in laymen's terms.

So, I laid it out. In random trials, HCQ was worse. In the double blinded (gold standard for medication testing) study, it was stopped early because HCQ caused too many deaths. Only small post hoc studies of HCQ say anything good about it.

Then I said that the only way we beat this is if we have 100% mask wearing to prevent Covid because the 'best' treatment is the steroid used in England that decreased death rates of ICU patients by 16%.

My friend, who was a National Merit Semifinalist, has a degree in Biology and was at one point a certified HS science teacher. Said that she is through with wearing masks.

She started drinking the evangelical koolaid about 20 years ago. She is educated enough to know how viruses work. And she refuses to wear a mask. It is officially a death cult. They would rather we all die, then have everyone wear a mask for 6 -12 months.

I tried to point out that in Asia they were masks whenever they don't feel well or any disease flares up in society. They actually "Live Matthew 25 and take care of the least of these." I have little doubt that I will lose a friend over this. Either she will not speak to me again or more likely she or someone in her family will get it.

College educated one of the top 2.5% of the population in terms of raw intellectual ability and she is a death cult member. I really feel like we are all doomed.

Jake Tapper show -- no pokerface

Did anyone else notice that the guy from the Trump administration stuttered every time he told a lie. It got worse the bigger the lie...every time he mentioned Antifa is was horrible. On calling the WHO corrupt it was obvious.

When he said things that were true ....no stutter.

Math lesson about Nevada results lesss than 2% turnout total

Since the complete results aren't in, I'll round up a little.

Sanders = 6,600
Biden = 3,000
Buttigieg = 2,000
Warren = 1,400

So a total of about 13,000 votes were cast in this caucus out of a total of 698,044 registered Democrats in Nevada (https://www.nvsos.gov/sos/home/showdocument?id=8344). So, voter turnout (assuming no republican cross over) was 1.9%.

So, Bernie who clearly energized the voters of Nevada got 0.945% of eligible Democrats to vote for him in the caucus. Yeah that sounds promising.

Let's pump the brakes here...

This again shows that caucuses drive down turnout from a traditional primary where people can vote when it is convenient around their work and life schedules.

Another tiny state (1.8 million registered voters total) going early having an overly large influence on fundraising and perception.

For all the talk of front-runner - let's think of where they are -- 1.6% of the delegates have been

There are 3979 delegates to win -- so far 64 have been awarded. That is 1.6% of the race.

For all this talk of front-runners and 'dead in the water' campaigns for Biden and Warren -- let's take a breather and think.

% earned of needed to win
23 Buttigieg 1.2%
21 Sanders 1.1%
8 Warren 0.4%
7 Klobuchar 0.4%
6 Biden 0.3%

The same networks that wouldn't dare to call a state race with 1.6% of the vote in are willing to declare this a two person race. Again, let's draw the analogy to calling a state race. These are the two little niche towns with basically all-white populations that don't look like the rest of the state. (I say that as someone who currently lives in Iowa).

Last night, Joshua Johnson (I think) who used to be on NPR said he wouldn't even call Iowa and NH two data points -- they are too similar to be different. This is the same 93% plus white vote measured twice. Let's see how things go when there are more people of color. Florida will have more women of color vote in their primary than all teh votes of New Hampshire.

Let's not forget that in NH many people vote who aren't really Democrats -- that may be pride (NH are said to be proud to be above party affiliations) or that may be Republicans trying to mess with the process -- no one knows for sure how many fall into each category.

The bottom line is support who you want now, get behind them in the general and vote out every complicit Republican at the natioonal level, or the purges at the DOJ and DOD will simply escalate.

My only caveat to this is whether all this press over a non-representative sample of 1.6% of the delegates will drive money in ways that eliminate good candidates with good ideas. Since money drives politics on both sides, let's hope that the 5 left plus Bloomberg can try to articulate a winning platform with voters. We aren't going to convince Trump voters -- don't kid yourselves -- we just need the largest group of voters in the last Presidential election (DID NOT VOTE AT ALL) to show up to get rid of that moron in the White House. That is the big issue -- how do GET OUT THE VOTE -- it certainly isn't about fretting over the tiny virtually all white populations of Iowa and NH.

My letter to Iowa's Senators

Below is the text to my senators (Ernst and Grassley). This is my 3rd on the impeachment to Ernst.I would recommend to everyone who has a Senator who voted to impeach (rep at the time) or remove (senator) should include the part about witness tampering is considered a more serious felony based on sentencing guidelines than giving false statements under oath. Maybe, if we can put enough pressure on the ones up for re-election they will be forced to allow witnesses.


There have been numerous reports that the Trump camp has threatened you and other Republican Senators that if you “Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.” This is a blatant attempt at jury tampering by the President and his minions. This is clearly an abuse of power and a federal felony punishable by up to ten years. This is clearly a high crime that undermines the very nature of the justice system. It is considered to be even more egregious than making false statements under oath, which only has a maximum penalty of 5 years. So any Senator who voted to remove President Clinton for making false statements in a Civil Court deposition ought to vote for the removal of a President who has committed an even more serious “high crime” based on federal sentencing guidelines.

Furthermore, in some states, jury tampering overturns a not guilty and either results in a judge trial with no jury or in others results in an automatic conviction of the top count of the indictment.

Once again, you swore an oath of impartiality for this trial and an oath to defend the Constitution and the laws of this country when you became a Senator. I implore you that you take that oath seriously and live up to it. Based on what you have seen and heard in the trial plus the attempt at jury tampering, any vote other than guilty or for more witness testimony would amount to a whitewash of the charges. I use the term “whitewash” specifically because this is the same kind of sham trial that Klansman and other racist murderous would get when facing charges for killing innocent people or color or their allies. Here the victim is our system of laws, our codes of ethics, and even our Constitution itself.

You MUST call for real witness testimony. Even if it would be 3 hours of Trump in a deposition that only Senators could watch in a secure room. If he doesn’t perjure himself or implicate himself in one or more crimes, then you might be able to vote no to removal. If Bolton, Mulvaney, and others can show how their actions were legal and in the interest of the United States and complied with all US laws (record keeping, honoring subpoenas, disbursement of funds, etc.) then you could vote no on the facts and not a white washed party loyalty.

I hope that you will do what is right and demand witnesses and then issue a verdict based on facts and not ‘whitewash’ a verdict based on criminal threats from the President and his cabal of supporters.
