Re: Democratic primary watch

I just saw the following article about the Biden sexual assault charge. Haven't read it yet.

Re: Suns News: Week 20 3/9-3/15

Everyone in the NBA makes money right now. I think they'd make more in Seattle, but you have a point about players wanting to be in LA. Remember when the Suns had that kind of allure? Counterpoint: I lived in Seattle from 2003 - 2013, and in general I found that the Sonics didn't have as great of a...

Re: Coronavirus

I think 50/50 is optimistic, but there is hope. There are only 12 D seats up for re-election, and 22 R seats. It is basically given that Alabama will go back from D to R. Other than that, there are two other Ds that are on the fence. For the 22 Rs, 6 are on the fence, and you now have Bullock in MT...

Re: Suns News: Week 20 3/9-3/15

Everybody acts like the Clippers are trash and should leave LA because the Lakers are more popular. But I'm sure the Clips still make tons of money by being in LA, on tickets, on the local TV deal, everything else. And players still love to play in LA. So I don't see why they would be in any hurry t...

Re: Coronavirus

You want cynical? I think our "democracy" has been over. GOP won't give up power again. I'm really worried. I worry that Trump will cancel or delay the November election due to the virus. I worry that if the election does occur, there could be messing around with the integrity of the election, ever...

Re: Coronavirus

Trump also just tweeted out a mocking message about Mitt Romney, sarcastically saying he was sad that Romney tested negative for corona. This man is a monster.

Re: Coronavirus

I think Fauci pissed off Trump by criticizing and contradicting him at a recent press appearance. Can't criticize dear leader. He'll be off TV now, and probably fired or reassigned shortly thereafter. The death of expertise. As for stopping the quarantine after 15 days / before Easter, that will lea...

Re: Coronavirus

I want to be optimistic and say that we'll only be at home fully for a few weeks. But our federal government is so completely incompetent, and people don't seem to be doing their part to truly socially isolate, wear masks, wash up, etc., so I worry that we aren't really going to halt the spread of t...

Re: Coronavirus

It sounds like Congress continues to be unable to pass an economic stimulus bill today. They can't reach agreement on some provisions of the bill. Depending on which team you are rooting for, the problem is either that Republicans are writing too much of a blank check to corporations, or that Dems a...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I miss Bender but not the others. Chriss was a marginal talent and Jackson was a knucklehead who made bad decisions on offense. If Jackson could shoot 3s better I might have had more patience for him. But I'm so relieved that he's gone. He drove me crazy. Best wishes to all of them in their new situ...

Re: Coronavirus

I've never posted in this folder before because I've been hesitant to do so as a conservative (I did not vote for Trump, lest I get painted as a racist or who knows what else), but this situation is getting wild to me. I'm lucky where my job isn't really impacted and I can work from home without an...

Re: Coronavirus

The senators who truly committed misconduct should face strong consequences. But I have so little faith in our system any more to actually do the right thing. If I had to guess, I'd say they all escape with no real punishment of any kind. If you know someone in America you're good it seems ... one ...

Re: Ways to deal with NBA withdrawal during the COVID-19 hiatus

We should probably ask Jamaal Murray what he is doing to deal with the withdrawal. :shock: I hadn't heard this story and had to Google it. Ohhhhhhhhhhh, my. How embarrassing. Honestly what is with people who video themselves doing stuff like that? It's such a huge risk and such a small reward. Espe...

E-sports are still on. Watch some Rocket League Championship Series on twitch.tv, or plenty of other games.

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I like Ty Jerome. He doesn't yet have NBA-level athleticism, but I think he has a really good feel for the game and high hoops IQ. I like his passing and floor generalship, and he's a decent shooter. If he keeps training hard and working on his conditioning, I could see him becoming a valuable backu...

Re: Coronavirus

Big scandal story broke yesterday. It seems that multiple US Senators received briefings about how bad corona would be here in the US in January, and in response, they sold massive amounts of stock before the economy crashed. They then went on to downplay how bad corona would be to ensure that they ...

Re: Coronavirus

I think too many people will die to just let this particular crisis go. Trump may end up rightly taking blame for up to hundreds of thousands, or millions, of dead Americans. You can't win an election after that.

Re: Coronavirus

I don't see how he could possibly get re-elected after such a catastrophe in the last year of his presidency, unless he goes full dictator and cancels the election or something.
