  1. Don't elevate terrible people no matter how electoral advantageous it may seem
  2. I guess part of it for me is that it still fucking hurts to read. I can't imagine the hell that parents and children are going through, and makes me sick to think about what we've done, as a country, to these people and the situation they are now in. It just hurts.
  3. I'm not shocked. Basing an estimate off of a low res video probably not the most accurate source!
  4. (Rest of the thread, etc) Holy damn that's big. I remember doing something like this for my chemical plant safety /process design class back in college. One of the more fun and interesting engineering classes imo
  5. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-19/sweden-in-very-deep-economic-crisis-despite-soft-lockdown https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-25/denmark-s-funding-need-more-than-triples-to-pay-for-covid-crisis Sweden appears to suffer from the specifics of it's export heavy economy when compared to say, Denmark. So while they didn't shut down, they're still contracting. That said, people calling for a "swedish model" for economic growth the data just isn't there yet. That said, you can tell this is a bad strategy by this: Not who you want in your corner at this juncture tbh
  6. Y'all should listen to the citations needed podcast episodes on local media. Good stuff
  7. It all comes back to campaign finance. The DCCC/Schumer/Pelosi/et al don't give too much a fuck about your politics or how good a candidate you are for your state/district, but singularly focused on how well you can raise cash(read: call rich people and kiss their ass for 6+ hours/day), and in addition will actively work against you (withholding staff/firms) during primaries if you aren't their chosen one, a chicken and egg type thing. It's a big reason why Amy McGrath is the nominee for KYSEN against Mitch!
