  1. I thought this offered some helpful perspective: From Reddit - "The market has dropped about 25% right now, sweet, so cheap right? The equivalent point in 2008-9 was Sep 2008. The market dropped another 40% from that point before hitting bottom, and it took nearly 27 months to start growing up from that 9/08 level. That is a long, long time to realize 0% ROI. Buying in Sep 2008 was not a "deal". It was not "on sale". It was just locking you in to a very long and painful period of 0 growth at a time you NEEDED an extended emergency fund. If "previous level" means the peak, it took over 6 years to return." Seeing stocks down is an enticement to buy, but I think I'll just be padding my emergency fund for a while.
  2. Shit, all but one of their locations, too. For anyone who isn’t familiar with them, McMenamins is a group that owns multiple really cool businesses throughout Oregon. For example, for one of them, they converted an old elementary school into a bar, restaurant, hotel, movie theater, etc. The old detention room was converted into a cigar bar. I believe they brew their own beer and make their own wine. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area and if they reopen.
  3. This is my exact belief as well. I’m willing to believe we’ll have made great progress on flattening the curve in the next few months. Asia is getting back to normal. Italy is leveling off. Aid will be dispensed, and the trump propaganda machine will be running at full force convincing everyone that trump’s great leadership is responsible for any and all recovery we’ve experienced. Once the economy comes back, especially with rates at 0, shit will be booming and it will be one more weapon repub propagandists can use to tout trump, right in time for the election. I think at that point people will care more about getting back to normal life than removing trump from office. I hope I’m wrong.
  4. I suppose it could be Tammy Baldwin. I have no strong feelings about her versus Witmer. Klobuchar was mentioned earlier in the thread; my point was I’d rather Biden try to use his VP pick to carry a state that’s more competitive than Minnesota (not that MN is a lock).
  5. I like the idea of Gretchen Witmer. Biden probably doesn't need Klobuchar's help to carry MN, but he needs all the help he can get to carry Michigan.
  6. People far smarter and more knowledgable than I are currently panicking and saying we're basically fucked.
  7. Crazy shit. OKC Utah game canceled moments before tip-off. Utah's Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus. Players sent back to the locker room. Fans told to leave the arena. Players are currently quarantined in OKC's Chesapeake Energy arena. Entire season suspended.
  8. Bottom line is young people fucked up. I don’t know anyone under the age of 35 who watches CNN or MSNBC. Floating head punditry was not why Bernie lost.
  9. Kamala appears to be angling hard for it, but I’d love to see Warren as the VP pick. She’d slay Pence at everything, and would hopefully bring on board the most progressive faction of the party.
  10. Bernie staying in. I like that he will force Joe to get on the record regarding progressive policy issues when the spotlight is on the two of them in the debate. Still not a fan of him staying in, though. Feel like it's time to coalesce and focus on Trump.
  11. How are these statues so unprotected that you can just fucking ram a truck into them?
  12. This is exactly it. Who are these irresponsible, clown ass liberals that would rather pout at home than swallow their pride and go vote to make sure trump isn’t re-elected? Your favorite candidate didn’t make it? Boo fucking hoo, you baby. Keep reaching for your socialist utopia each election cycle, but in the meantime let’s get trump out of office.
