Tell the people losing everything facing down homelessness and hunger they aren't necessary. And not necessary for you doesn't mean unnecessary for others. I believe in the protocols but I also believe people should have the right to choose if they want to risk going for a drink or dinner or what have you.

3 weeks to flatten the curve - about that... Those of us in the 99.97% should be able to go about our lives as normal. High risk, stay home. "akkchually, you could infect an at-risk person". So I lack the ability to apply personal responsibility? If I didnt lose my guns in a boating accident over the Colorado Ocean, I'd say that I am responsible enough to own those? Or that I own a lawnmower and yet I dont run over children and puppies. I have a ball peen hammer and dont bop people with it? Why does my personal responsibility end at this china flu control grab? How's that mortality rate? Individual cases being counted for every positive test they take.. that's not nefarious. Whatever...stay home, shut down small businesses, put people out of work, and keep the politicians who made these decisions well-paid. Oh good, Wal Mart is open, thank goodness the little guy will survive.
BTW- the traffic line at the In and Out here in Colorado Springs was ridiculous. Also, we have Smashburger, which has a better burger and their garlic rosemary fries are amazing.

Well I'm glad you guys liked it. I really am. I didn't because I wanted a story about how the two main characters grew. Instead I got a goofy coincidence, a completely out-of-character decision, an unceremonious bludgeoning by a character I didn't know and didn't like, and an inexplicable decision to leave her alive for absolutely no good reason. All so Elle could spend the whole game killing her way to get to her so she could do nothing. Twice. To say I was disappointed is a massive understatement. It's not that I had a predetermined manner in which the story should go, because I didn't. But the characters have to behave at least in a remotely realistic way. I can buy a lot - these are just videogames after all - but in this game I can't even begin to list how many ridiculous plot contrivances there are. For me it was just way too many.
Could an election actually be rigged like this?

I was going to say, "I don't think they are all deplorable." Then I looked up the definition which was in part:1. causing or being a subject for grief or regret; lamentable:I think that fits anyone willing to vote for Trump after what he has said and done over the last 3.8 years. I understand why people voted for him in 2016. And if you weren't interested and/or paying attention thinking he was the better choice was a possible decision. But now? You have to be willfully blind to not see him for what he is. Do I think half the country are "bad people" (whatever that might mean)? Of course not. But they for various reasons are allowing themselves to be blinded to the truth of the situation.
2. causing or being a subject for censure, reproach, or disapproval;
And this is helped by having a candidate further to the left how exactly?

If you can provide me with a practical plan on how to prevent half the population from living in their own alternate reality I'd love to hear it.

Cannot wait to see what Trump does without the need to be re-elected. But, he has a need to be loved too much to do much too crazy.

Waiting for a second (or third) debate is important information. Watching 1 candidate call "lids" at 9:30 am every morning for a month leading up to an election is important information. If this guy cannot face stressors till noon, how will he run a country for 4-8 years? Or a sudden crisis? Watching how the media acts leading up till an election is important information. no one is allowed to ask questions of Biden (of which there are many just on policy alone), and no one even questions that. I know nothing about him beyond his webpage (since he has flipped or flopped on everything he has ever done)... and all that tells me is that my taxes are going up, he wants a check from me for $6400 sometime soon, and gas will be $4 again. no thanks. All this is IF he lives or isn't 25th amendmented in the first few weeks. President Harris... oh god no.
All the dems had to do was field 1 competent candidate. They failed. At least with trump my 401K will do well and maybe a war will end.
The democratic party has an internal reckoning coming. It will not be good.
Oh, damn I thought it was just a AMD processor, but sounds like it has to be the exact serial number.

I still have a Ass Creed Valhalla free game at Newegg, from my AMD Ryzen purchase. It only has about 8 days left before it expires.
There's no way I'm using it, with fuking denuvo on it (don't get me started on that ubi launcher ) and not to mention still think I've got NVIDIA Monster Hunter: World.
I'm not even sure I can trade or give away the Ass Creed, because AMD are being dicks.
They make you log in to make sure your machine really has a AMD processor before they will give you the code, afaik.
It's some real bullshit I've never heard of before. Why would they feel the need to prevent players from trading games.

FB, et al. having been doing nearly enough. Those corps rake in money hand over fist. They can, and should, be hiring tens of thousands of moderators. Working closely with law enforcement to report and identify criminal activity, etc. They've had an entirely free ride so far and that needs to end. Ending 230 is a good, and necessary, thing.
