I for one think that we should do the opposite thing
the president of the united states of all people should be using performance enhancing drugs, but make sure they both have the same
so it's fair
 
A different cocktail for each debate
 
no only stimulants I'd think
idk how interesting any others would be
well interesting is the wrong word but
 
Oh I meant like drug cocktail but yes

The NY Times reports
> The Times obtained Donald Trump’s tax information extending over more than two decades, revealing struggling properties, vast write-offs, an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due. Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.
> Monthly credit card receipts, reported to the I.R.S. by third-party card processing firms, reflect the way certain of his resorts, golf courses and hotels became favored stamping grounds, if not venues for influence-trading, beginning in 2015 and continuing into his time in the White House.
 
4:49 AM
That^ will light a fire under him.
 
5:12 AM
@skullpatrol doubt it. already seeing his supporters dismiss it as "him doing business" and that NYT "illegally released his tax records"
 
5:25 AM
Yup, that fits the mentality of most of his hardcore supporters.

@TimStone Might I recommend a mix of Pavulon, potassium chloride and sodium thiopenthal? /S /S /S /S In case it's not obvious: this is a joke
(those are the chemicals used in lethal injections)

Georgia withholds school COVID-19 counts from public ajc.com/education/…
> about 700 of Georgia’s 2,300 schools are not reporting to the state’s new data portal, though the agency says it is mandatory.
 
@Wipqozn "Our apologies, unfortunately our website is currently unavailable in most European countries due to GDPR rules."
That says a lot
 
> The secrecy is not unique to Georgia, where public health officials recently reported that from Sept. 6 to Sept 12, schools were the leading source of outbreaks
> Wellnitz chose to keep her two children online because she couldn’t get answers to questions like whether the desks would be kept at least 3 feet apart, as the American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended.
> “They act as if these kids don’t go home to parents, grandparents, uncles and others who have chronic illnesses," Porter said. “What we’re seeing now is the spread from children to their at-risk parents and grandparents. And the season is young.”
Honestly I feel like Covid will be a thing in America for the rest of time
The handling of it is downright horrific, and I'm sure lots of folks won't get or even be able to afford a vaccine (since I'm assuming the government will charge for it).
@Wrigglenite Sorry, I can't reply to you due to GDPR
 
@Wipqozn At least the next 4 years, from what I'm seeing
 
1:00 PM
@Wrigglenite lol I mean if Trump wins, then absolutely.
but if Biden wins then I suspect GOP voters won't get vaccine out of spite
 
1:15 PM
> "Everything he says is false," Redfield said during a phone call made in public on a commercial airline and overheard by NBC News.

> Redfield acknowledged after the flight from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., that he was speaking about Atlas, a neuroradiologist with no background in infectious diseases or public health. Atlas was brought on to the White House task force in August.
 
1:35 PM
It's weird because you think "maybe he wanted to be heard" but at the same time this happens with surprising frequency so I guess maybe people totally lack the self-awareness that like…people can hear them, on the phone? >_>
 
@TimStone I could see how interacting with this kind of idiots day for day could lead me to unwise rants in public, I don't think I could take that long

@TimStone So apparently he previously assaulted his wife and then during a drunken argument chambered a round while fighting with her, so that's cool
 
6:04 PM
@Wrigglenite You mean you can't visit the AJC's website? Hmmm strange.
 
Yeah a lot of local news websites just didn't do GDPR compliance updates
 
@Unionhawk I see. I'd have expected the AJC to be up to date. They seem to have been doing an okay job with digitalization and young/international readership outreach.
 
It's still always a business decision of "how much sense does it make for us to spend time on an update specific for european users"
 
6:34 PM
 
@TimStone fwiw, it does seem like the police didn't really have a compelling reason to tackle him in the moment, so, you know, police things

> Channel 4 News has exclusively obtained a vast cache of data used by Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign on almost 200 million American voters.
> It reveals that 3.5 million Black Americans were categorised by Donald Trump’s campaign as ‘Deterrence’ – voters they wanted to stay home on election day.
Pretty well produced 20 minute video to go with the reporting
 
10:29 PM
> In Georgia, despite Black people constituting 32% of the population, they made up 61% of the ‘Deterrence’ category. In North Carolina, Black people are 22% of the population but were 46% of ‘Deterrence’. In Wisconsin, Black people constitute just 5.4% of the population but made up 17% of ‘Deterrence’.
IF there was any justice at all, Trump and his entire campaign would be imprisoned for life just for this alone.
> The disproportionate categorising of Black Americans for ‘Deterrence’ is seen across the US. Overall, people of colour labelled as Black, Hispanic, Asian and ‘Other’ groups made up 54% of the ‘Deterrence’ category. In contrast, other categories of voters the campaign wished to attract were overwhelmingly white.
> “It’s not ‘may the best candidate win’ at that point it’s ‘may the best well-funded machine suppress voters and keep them at home thereby rigging the election so that someone can win’.”
lol it's been like that for a while. Sorry you missed the memo.
This isn't even just an American thing
ffs brexit happened due to all the bullshit propaganda that got spread
