I had a coworker try to argue one of his insane views from an article on this page. Told him if he believes this is true then please read the onion because it isn’t any more truthful. He got angry and didn’t talk to me for 3 days :rofl:

I'm practicing socialist distancing, bub.

But thanks for the rec. I'm learning A LOT from this "Onion" thing you put me onto.

So far no one very famous has died after being infected. Once that happens I expect the panic to rise
sadly, that´s true...people don´t take it seriously until the TV is affected.

it´s funny to think that our current level of panic stems largely from a single NBA player making joke time.




...you gotta trade that dude, right? that´s way too many tangibles.

Yeah people are already forgetting that until the NBA shut down people were nervous but still going about there day to day.

It’s all just an indifferent number of deaths until someone widely recognizable dies.

Can someone provide me a convincing logical argument in favor of not voting for Biden if Bernie is not the democratic nominee? I'm having a difficult time finding one as I continue to read about Bernie supporters opting to either: not vote, vote for Trump, or vote third party.

I need some meaningful cogent thoughts.... please....
A lot of people do not vote, they feel (not entirely incorrectly) that this is all a game for affluent retirees, well paid office workers and business owners and that that electoral politics is not for them or about them. No matter who is office, you'll be poor or one bad break away from being poor.

For many non voters (though tragically, not enough), Bernie's campaign was the exception to the rule and they voted in the primary and unless Bernie makes a huge comeback and is on the ballot, many of those Sanders voters will revert to their status as non voters.

I largely agree with the above but I still see voting as harm reduction in the face of a capitalist systems that sees most of us as disposable. No matter who is president, the struggle to overcome capitalism runs through organizing and direct action. A Sanders Presidency would have been a tremendous ally but those of us on the left, know that we were going to spend the 2020's fighting no matter what.
