@NateSilver538  3/ these are all driven by liberals. So a cautious approach to closing schools is hardly surprising. I will point out again that the strongest opposition to in person was from poc communities who tend to be part of the Dem coalition but are not “liberal” in the sense …

@NateSilver538  4/ I think we’re using the term. I remain as big a fan as always. But I think you’ve decided that your understanding of the stats shows these were misguided policies - and you may totally be right about that - and based on that belief you’re writing off the contrary view as …

@NateSilver538  fair enough. I don’t expect you to change your mind. I will only say that having watched it on the ground and in the public opinion data that what kept the schools closed was mostly parents who were afraid to send their kids back to in person school. Rightly or wrongly.

2/ seeing tweets and headlines and people on TV saying that’s it, the final nail in the coffee of the CDC’s credibility, the experts, fauci, whoever else. First it was the end of masks, now they’re back! Which is it!?!? Everybody really needs to get the fuck over themselves.


Good lord this video. Like a thoroughbred making a late break in a horse race

A good illustration of why the surgical hand washing technique is really very important

Las Vegas Mayor offers city as "control group", "we offer to be a control group" to see how many people die without social distancing.

We need to start understanding that these are quite literally crimes. If you call up the vote counter and tell him to change the numbers or throw away a bunch of ballots, that’s a crime. The person saying no doesn’t make it not a crime.

Holy Shit. Florida GOPer caught on tape telling fellow FL GOPers to make false voter registrations in Georgia so they could vote to save Loeffler and Perdue. He in fact DID register in Georgia and is now under investigation.
