    Unless I'm forced to (and Ameicans may be made to do so by withholding a variety of things if you don't) I'm not taking any hastily invented vaccine. I'm not anti vaccine. Just anti rushed research. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-pushes-warp-speed-effort-on-coronavirus-vaccine-ignoring-lessons-from-a-longago-drug-calamity-140324220.html Trump pushes 'warp speed' effort on coronavirus vaccine, ignoring lessons from a long-ago drug calamity

    I used to trap and hunt when I was a younger man. The furs I sold and the carcass from the muskrats and raccoons I gave to some people at times who actually cooked and ate them. I tried it. Not to bad. My hunting was mainly rabbit and squirrel. Yes I cooked and ate them. Tasty when cooked in a cast iron skillet and fried in butter, after rolling the meat in flour.. I didn't ever hunt just to have a trophy mounted on a wall. It was for food and making money from the furs

    I'm an on and off hunter, over the years, and I've no emotion when seeing an animal killed, if for appropriate reasons - food is a good reason - trophy is not. Common and pest animals can be killed, rare and beautiful, not. And as I'm becoming more of an archery aficionado, I'm discovering that "hunting" in 'merica, means often, a different thing, than does the term "hunting" in NZ and OZ. So, it transpires that what we think of as hunting, in NZ and OZ, is what 'mericans call "spot and stalk" We, go out into the bush, the mountains, the hinterlands and quietly roam about, looking for, finding and shooting, game/pests. 'mericans drive their trucks up to their hunting area, walk about 200 metres and either, hide in a blind, or up a tree, somethings for days, until an animal comes to the automatic feeder, that's been there for months, feeding out each day, so as to attract the animal. And worse, they go to fenced farms and shoot animals raised specifically for the shooting thereof. That's not hunting, that's sitting.

    Face The Facts: US COVID Death Numbers Are A NYC Epidemic, NOT A National Epidemic The sheer ease with which the American left has politicized the deaths of thousands of Americans has shocked even me. The United States is approaching 100,000 deaths and the left seems determined to make sure the public blames President Donald Trump for those deaths. As PJM’s Tyler O’Neil noted, the Democratic Coalition is trying to make “Trump Death Toll” a thing. While Tyler effectively demonstrated the absurdity of blaming these deaths on Trump, I’m going to show that despite the headlines that suggest things in the United States are the worst in the world, that is emphatically not the case. First, let’s take a look at the total confirmed deaths of the ten worst-hit countries in descending order (based on the numbers from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University as of 9:30 am ET May 24). USA (96,046) UK (36,757) Italy (32,735) Spain (28,678) France (28,218) Brazil (22,013) Belgium (9,280) Germany (8,275) Iran (7,417) Netherlands (5,841) But, here’s what happens when you adjust these numbers per capita. The following countries are arranged in descending order by their coronavirus death rate per million people (based on population data from The CIA World Factbook). Belgium (791.76) Spain (573.38) UK (558.95) Italy (524.58) France (415.90) Sweden (391.87) Netherlands (338.01) Ireland (309.86) USA (288.74) Switzerland (226.80) It makes an amazing difference, doesn’t it? The United States dropped from number 1 to number 9 once you adjusted for population. Oh, but wait! I’ve previously documented how the United States’ coronavirus numbers are skewed by downstate New York. So, here’s the same list as above, treating downstate New York as a separate country from the rest of the United States: Downstate NY (1,771.86) Belgium (791.76) Spain (573.38) UK (558.95) Italy (524.58) France (415.90) Sweden (391.87) Netherlands (338.01) Ireland (309.86) USA sans downstate NY (233.44) Once you separate downstate New York from the rest of the United States, it jumps to the top (by a long shot), while the rest of the United States is at the bottom—barely edging out Switzerland. It should be noted here that several countries are reportedly undercounting both cases and deaths, including Iran, China, and Russia. It’s very possible that the actual case and death numbers for these countries are much higher, possibly even putting them in the top ten, but without reliable data I can’t correct for this. As usual, the media wants the public to believe that the situation in the United States is worse than anywhere else in order to make Trump look bad. The United States approaching 100,000 coronavirus deaths is a grim milestone to be sure, but these deaths should not be politicized. Trump’s response was quick and decisive, and likely saved thousands of lives. https://en-volve.com/2020/05/25/face-the-facts-us-covid-death-numbers-are-a-nyc-epidemic-not-a-national-epidemic/?fbclid=IwAR2s6yaThsCqZBWAg45x1blKB2O3MPi1wqGGonNp1Sny-7d_nSfUhtYQ7LY

    Finally to my greatest pleasure Twitter woke up and now puts tweets written by Mentally-Handicapped-In-Chief Donald Trump not yet into the dustbin but leads willing readers to links which tell the readers that the man is talking out of his ass. Donald after digging deeply into the past claimed that a man whose name is Scarborough was involved into the death of a woman working for him. Total nonsense as it looks and therefore fitting pefectly into Donald´s world of lies. Donald is now accusing Twitter of election meddling. Does it need further evidence that the man needs to be hospitalised? This is all very good entertainment but I hope it shall be over in November. Biden by that time should get an able Vice President, bring administration back into working order, buy a walking frame and all will be fine.

    Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season. Some things to think about... The average age of the men who landed on the five beaches in Operation Overlord was 20. Twenty years old. So next time you wonder if you can make it to classes in the middle of winter, or find your classes, or talk to a professor, remember this fact. The average D-Day age was 20. Fact: Assuming KIAs accurately represented age groups serving in Vietnam, the average age of an infantryman (MOS 11B) serving in Vietnam to be 19 years old is a myth, it is actually 22. None of the enlisted grades have an average age of less than 20. The average man who fought in World War II was 26 years of age.

    Try as they might, the QR wouldn't work on my phone. Instead, I just wrote my name and phone number of a sheet they had for that (since apparently it wasn't uncommon). Also, at least in the mall I went to (Ngamwongwan), you had to sign again at every shop or restaurant you visited. My impression was so they could locate you, if it turned out some who was infected had been to the mall or shops the same day as you were.

    Captain Tom Moore ‘looking forward’ to being knighted by the Queen: ‘I hope she’s not very heavy-handed with the sword’ https://www.msn.com/en-nz/lifestyle/other/captain-tom-moore-looking-forward-to-being-knighted-by-the-queen-i-hope-she-s-not-very-heavy-handed-with-the-sword/ar-BB14mNut

    That photo makes me so angry. If I had my way I"d feed them to ravenous grizzly beers. Werner Herzog the famous film German director saw footage of someone being eaten alive by a grizzly bear. He handed over footage of the incident to a close relative of the victim after they requested it - and this really stern German - a man seemingly made from steel, said you shouldn't watch it, ,just destroy it immediately, shaking his head and in absolute devastation - reliving the horror of watching it himself. Being eaten alive by a bear is not a good way to go - but those two deserve it. It's just karma.

    ...and one last thing. One doctor is found credible by the right and but 1000s of scientists with the best minds, highest credentials say there is climate change and we aren't to believe them. Arguing both sides. Credible if the person with credentials aligns with my ideological view, not so if they don't.

    Mr Cav I do not want to become President of the US although I am sure even after a full gallon of Singha I would do a better job, so nobody wants to see my taxbill. But : " 1. Are presidents required to release their tax returns? Presidents aren’t required by law to release their tax returns. Nevertheless, between 1974 and 2012, every president but Gerald Ford has made a voluntary release of the tax returns they filed while in office. Ford released no complete returns, but released 10 years of summary data including gross income, taxable income, major deductions, and taxes paid. " ( Stolen from somewhere) I think Donald is tecnically overindebtet, depends to a large degree on Deutsche Bank and is additionally in mental disorder. I do further believe that in case he looses against sleepy Joe he will finally loose self control ,run naked through Soi 8 with a black wig and throw yellow face-cream at the boys in brown. This is the famous BuBi-prophecy. Don´t say later that I did not tell you.

    It's not a threat it is a caution. Of course I'm happy to meet up with you. However what I'm saying is there are many Thai people with vested interests in myself being unharmed. I would never start any violence, but I can definitely assure you they will. And I don't want you to get hurt. I just thought you should know. I've actually enjoyed your posts- disarmed by reality as they are - but as much as I'd like to meet you - believe me you don't want to enter my world.

    "You get the government you deserve" I've heard that said by a Brit once and it rings true. I'm far more apathetic this time around. When all is said and done the collective who are making the wrong decisions will get fucked by it. All I can do personally is position myself to do well no matter what happens or whoever wins.

    Equally bad? Really? At worse Hillary is a centrist Democrat. The worst thing out of her administration would have been more troops in Syria. But generally speaking it would have been the 3rd term of Obama in terms of policy. Not that it would a great thing. In hindsight, Trump has praised people donning Nazi and Confederate flags twice! Charlottesville and recently in protests in Michigan and other places. Kids in cages. I'm flabbergasted just that alone can be seen as basically the same. I am not a Hillary fan as well. She cheated her way to the nomination. Policy wise, I'm not with her either. But that's standard in any political race. Trump is enabling far right supremacists. Maybe, for some people because they aren't going to be targeted by them (yet, eventually they will get around to you then its not as important.

    Gentlemen , an estimated century ago I have been studying law and our professor for public law used to say: Before you start complaining about politicians be aware they are meat of our meat. In other words: you get what you deserve. What the currently available top US candidates just show is the status of the US society. The way to find those candidates could not be more democratic but it did not result in anything better.

    I totally agree there is Dem hypocrisy regarding Biden and Kavanaugh as well as even Trump with regards to sexual harassment and misconduct. The same way the NOW (National Organization for Women) still supported Bill Clinton but screamed bloody murder about the alleged misconduct of Justice Thomas. Both parties have done so, such as Republicans backing a known pedophile in Alabama (which is by far the worse of any matter save rape by a candidate). I am not a fan of Biden. Never was. That said, it boggles the mind to equate Biden's alleged acts and his habit of showing lapses to the opposition. Are we really equating the two candidates as if both are so equally bad we might have to flip a coin to decide? In hindsight, would Hillary have been a worse President? A case can be made with not too much light between Obama and either Romney or McCain but for a few issues. But really. Are we really saying Biden is close enough to Trump that there is a wringing of hands and gnawing of teeth decision? Biden has the real potential to suck as President. But to consider an additional 4 years of this? Especially having to deal with a full blown recession and probably second wave of the virus? A man who has bankrupted a real estate empire he inherited while his contemporaries in the same business didn't? I'm missing something obviously.

    Regarding what Flash says, one of the most outrageous crimes was Nixon leaving American soldiers behind knowingly. Him being bitter about paying reparations to the north Vietnamese (the total was 3 billion I believe) he reneged and the Vietnamese held back on American POWs because they (turns our rightfully so) did not trust America to keep its word. We don't talk about it. It should be talked about. In fact, Nixon extended the war. There were peace talks in the run up to the 1968 elections and the 'November surprise' was going to be a peace. Nixon sent intermediaries to tell the South Vietnamese leader not to sign anything and after he is President he will take care of him. The lives lost from '68 to the rest of the war was squarely on Nixon's (and Kissinger's) doing. Clinton sold out America to the Chinese allowing them to get all kinds of technology that has allowed them to get stealth technology as well as extend the range of their ICBMs to extend to western USA and access to the electrical grid surreptiously.

    It was big news if Obama's ratings dipped below 50% and its big news if Trump's goes above. Let that marinate. Obama could have had a much better presidency but in comparison, he did a great job. I've said this from the start. Obama is assured of a great legacy in part because he is sandwiched between what will be regarded as 2 of the worst 5 presidents in American history.

    Gentlemen, the breakthrough is here !!!! The bubi-laboratories recommend to swallow a pocket lamp in proper defence against the Virus. Following President Moron´s light concept. In case you forget to switch it on just wait 3 days for reappearance and repeat. Unit to be cleaned with strong desinfectant, swallow surplus liquid. Cheers ! This is no sarcasm

    Looking at Trump´s really unbelievable weekend tweets I wonder what he will do in case of loosing the race. Call in the army, fire some nuclear missiles or beat Melania unconscious?
