    It gives this a brand new meaning.


    We don't live an extravagant life which is why, I spend extra for good meats. We buy local, grass fed, cage free, non antibiotic/hormone, things. It costs more. But it is sustainable, it is healthier for you to eat. It is better for the animals.
    You eat less of it.

    If people actually considered this and weren't hooked on crap, it wouldn't be a big deal. This could actually be an aging time to switch farms to more vegetables and grains.

    The White House will wind down the coronavirus task force in the weeks to come.

    President Trump said on Tuesday that the White House’s coronavirus task force would be shut down and replaced with “something in a different form” as the country moved into what he called Phase 2 of a response to a pandemic that has killed nearly 70,000 Americans.

    “We will have something in a different form,” Mr. Trump told reporters as he toured a Honeywell mask manufacturing plant in Arizona. The president praised the work of the task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, but he said it was time to focus on safety and reopening the country.

    “I think we are looking at Phase 2, and we’re looking at other phases,” Mr. Trump said after he was asked whether it was a good idea to shut down the task force while the virus was still spreading through the country. He said that Dr. Deborah L. Birx, the virus response coordinator for the task force, and other top public officials would still be involved in the efforts to address the pandemic after the task force disbanded.

    “They will be, and so will other doctors, and so will other experts in the field,” he said, adding, “We are bringing our country back.”

    A federal judge has just overturned NYS board of elections decision to cancel the *democratic* primary. Ruling it unconstitutional. Which is was, IMO.

    Sure but the presidential primary in NY is almost irrelevant. NYS always votes Democrat. Hillary, who seems to be universally disliked, won this state by over 20% of the vote in 2016. No way Trump wins NY in 2020 unless something happens in Biden's campaign that is catastrophic.

    Where Trump has to worry is the battleground states he won in 2016. Places like Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania, etc might not as quick to vote Republican.

    I’m a little stunned that Florida has started a soft reopening. I still can’t get a haircut yet.

    Personally I would have waited until May 15.

    But MOST OF YOU ON HERE didn't want Trump BEING LIKE A KING with the Gov and look what has happened!

    31-35 States are in phase 1 of reopening.

    It looks like you all bit off more than what you can chew. It bit you all in the azz.

    Mush, here you go. Do it yourself. A 40$ investment that will last 8-10 years. You can end up cutting your hair for pennies aat a time.

    Unless you get your hair "done". In that case, you have to wait till the beauty parlor opens.

    You tested positive about a week and a half ago, right?
    Hopefully you just carry it and will never have the sickness.

    Researcher Bing Liu nearing important COVID discovery shot dead

    A University of Pittsburgh professor who was "on the verge of making very significant findings" about COVID-19 was killed in an apparent murder-suicide, authorities say. Bing Liu, 37, was found dead at home Saturday. Authorities say his alleged killer was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Bing was working on understanding "the cellular mechanisms that underlie SARS-CoV-2 infection and the cellular basis of the following complications," a statement issued by his colleagues said. "We will make an effort to complete what he started in an effort to pay homage to his scientific excellence."

    Hopefully his research is saved somewhere and others can decipher it. Sad to hear though

    1973: The US Department of Justice — under the Nixon administration, out of all administrations — sued the Trump Management Corporation for violating the Fair Housing Act. Federal officials found evidence that Trump had refused to rent to black tenants and lied to black applicants about whether apartments were available, among other accusations. Trump said the federal government was trying to get him to rent to welfare recipients. In the aftermath, he signed an agreement in 1975 agreeing not to discriminate to renters of color without admitting to discriminating before.

    1980s: Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, accused another one of Trump’s businesses of discrimination. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Brown said. “It was the eighties, I was a teenager, but I remember it: They put us all in the back.”

    1988: In a commencement speech at Lehigh University, Trump spent much of his speech accusing countries like Japan of “stripping the United States of economic dignity.” This matches much of his current rhetoric on China.

    1989: In a controversial case that’s been characterized as a modern-day lynching, four black teenagers and one Latino teenager — the “Central Park Five” — were accused of attacking and raping a jogger in New York City. Trump immediately took charge in the case, running an ad in local papers demanding, “BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!” The teens’ convictions were later vacated after they spent seven to 13 years in prison, and the city paid $41 million in a settlement to the teens. But Trump in October 2016 said he still believes they’re guilty, despite the DNA evidence to the contrary.

    1991: A book by John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump’s criticism of a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump at first denied the remarks, but later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”

    1992: The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino had to pay a $200,000 fine because it transferred black and women dealers off tables to accommodate a big-time gambler’s prejudices.

    1993: In congressional testimony, Trump said that some Native American reservations operating casinos shouldn’t be allowed because “they don’t look like Indians to me.”

    2000: In opposition to a casino proposed by the St. Regis Mohawk tribe, which he saw as a financial threat to his casinos in Atlantic City, Trump secretly ran a series of ads suggesting the tribe had a “record of criminal activity [that] is well documented.”

    2004: In season two of The Apprentice, Trump fired Kevin Allen, a black contestant, for being overeducated. “You’re an unbelievably talented guy in terms of education, and you haven’t done anything,” Trump said on the show. “At some point you have to say, ‘That’s enough.’”

    2005: Trump publicly pitched what was essentially The Apprentice: White People vs. Black People. He said he “wasn’t particularly happy” with the most recent season of his show, so he was considering “an idea that is fairly controversial — creating a team of successful African Americans versus a team of successful whites. Whether people like that idea or not, it is somewhat reflective of our very vicious world.”

    2010: In 2010, there was a huge national controversy over the “Ground Zero Mosque” — a proposal to build a Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan, near the site of the 9/11 attacks. Trump opposed the project, calling it “insensitive,” and offered to buy out one of the investors in the project. On The Late Show With David Letterman, Trump argued, referring to Muslims, “Well, somebody’s blowing us up. Somebody’s blowing up buildings, and somebody’s doing lots of bad stuff.”

    2011: Trump played a big role in pushing false rumors that Obama — the country’s first black president — was not born in the US. He even sent investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama’s birth certificate. Obama later released his birth certificate, calling Trump a ”carnival barker.” (The research has found a strong correlation between “birtherism,” as this conspiracy theory is called, and racism.) Trump has reportedly continued pushing this conspiracy theory in private.

    2011: While Trump suggested that Obama wasn’t born in the US, he also argued that maybe Obama wasn’t a good enough student to have gotten into Columbia or Harvard Law School, and demanded Obama release his university transcripts. Trump claimed, “I heard he was a terrible student. Terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?”

    For many people, none of these incidents, individually, may be totally damning: One of these alone might suggest that Trump is simply a bad speaker and perhaps racially insensitive (“politically incorrect,” as he would put it), but not overtly racist.

    But when you put all these events together, a clear pattern emerges. At the very least, Trump has a history of playing into people’s racism to bolster himself — and that likely says something about him too.

    And of course, there’s everything that’s happened through and since his presidential campaign.

    As a candidate and president, Trump has made many more racist comments
    On top of all that history, Trump has repeatedly made racist — often explicitly so — remarks on the campaign trail and as president:

    Trump launched his campaign in 2015 by calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” who are “bringing crime” and “bringing drugs” to the US. His campaign was largely built on building a wall to keep these immigrants out of the US.
    As a candidate in 2015, Trump called for a ban on all Muslims coming into the US. His administration eventually implemented a significantly watered-down version of the policy.

    When asked at a 2016 Republican debate whether all 1.6 billion Muslims hate the US, Trump said, “I mean a lot of them. I mean a lot of them.”

    He argued in 2016 that Judge Gonzalo Curiel — who was overseeing the Trump University lawsuit — should recuse himself from the case because of his Mexican heritage and membership in a Latino lawyers association. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who endorsed Trump, later called such comments “the textbook definition of a racist comment.”
    Trump has been repeatedly slow to condemn white supremacists who endorse him, and he regularly retweeted messages from white supremacists and neo-Nazis during his presidential campaign.

    He tweeted and later deleted an image that showed Hillary Clinton in front of a pile of money and by a Jewish Star of David that said, “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” The tweet had some very obvious anti-Semitic imagery, but Trump insisted that the star was a sheriff’s badge, and said his campaign shouldn’t have deleted it.

    Trump has repeatedly referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as “Pocahontas,” using her controversial — and later walked-back — claims to Native American heritage as a punchline.

    At the 2016 Republican convention, Trump officially seized the mantle of the “law and order” candidate — an obvious dog whistle playing to white fears of black crime, even though crime in the US is historically low. His speeches, comments, and executive actions after he took office have continued this line of messaging.

    In a pitch to black voters in 2016, Trump said, “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

    Trump stereotyped a black reporter at a press conference in February 2017. When April Ryan asked him if he plans to meet and work with the Congressional Black Caucus, he repeatedly asked her to set up the meeting — even as she insisted that she’s “just a reporter.”

    In the week after white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017, Trump repeatedly said that “many sides” and “both sides” were to blame for the violence and chaos that ensued — suggesting that the white supremacist protesters were morally equivalent to counterprotesters that stood against racism. He also said that there were “some very fine people” among the white supremacists. All of this seemed like a dog whistle to white supremacists — and many of them took it as one, with white nationalist Richard Spencer praising Trump for “defending the truth.”

    Throughout 2017, Trump repeatedly attacked NFL players who, by kneeling or otherwise silently protesting during the national anthem, demonstrated against systemic racism in America.
    Trump reportedly said in 2017 that people who came to the US from Haiti “all have AIDS,” and he lamented that people who came to the US from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts” once they saw America. The White House denied that Trump ever made these comments.

    Speaking about immigration in a bipartisan meeting in January 2018, Trump reportedly asked, in reference to Haiti and African countries, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” He then reportedly suggested that the US should take more people from countries like Norway. The implication: Immigrants from predominantly white countries are good, while immigrants from predominantly black countries are bad.

    Trump denied making the “shithole” comments, although some senators present at the meeting said they happened. The White House, meanwhile, suggested that the comments, like Trump’s remarks about the NFL protests, will play well to his base. The only connection between Trump’s remarks about the NFL protests and his “shithole” comments is race.

    Trump mocked Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign, again calling her “Pocahontas” in a tweet before adding, “See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!” The capitalized “TRAIL” is seemingly a reference to the Trail of Tears — a horrific act of ethnic cleansing in the 19th century in which Native Americans were forcibly relocated, causing thousands of deaths.

    Trump tweeted that several black and brown members of Congress — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — are “from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” and that they should “go back” to those countries. It’s a common racist trope to say that black and brown people, particularly immigrants, should go back to their countries of origin. Three of four of the members of Congress whom Trump targeted were born in the US.

    This list is not comprehensive, instead relying on some of the major examples since Trump announced his candidacy. But once again, there’s a pattern of racism and bigotry here that suggests Trump isn’t just misspeaking; it is who he is.

    Dr, your Democrats are in a state of panic. Disarray amongst the party is what I keep hearing. The party doesn’t want Biden as the nominee. The Tara Reade issue will only get worse. The man is living in a basement right now. He is not getting his so called message whatever that is out. When he does have a tape recorded message or comment it is a complete mess.

    You can say what you want to say about Trump and his issues but Trump MOVES THE NEEDLE. Even when your side shows negativity it just fires up his side even more and then you have crossover voters as that type of game plan Doesn’t work with Trump voters or potential voters to anybody. Even Democrats will gravitate towards Trump. The Democrats same old tired messages just don’t work anymore Dr. and just using the calm nice person that Joe Biden can project is not going to move the needle. Cuomo has a better shot but he doesn’t want that major headache of dealing with the entire World for 4 years.

    YOUR HOPE and all Democrats hope is that he losses steam with this coronavirus. That is all you have. You can’t say the economy. That was not his fault. And prior the economy was roaring....and in Dec I was still waiting for the collapse of the economy that was said back in March of 2019.

    As for the Tara Reade issue?

    I love how female Democrats just ignore it NOW. IT DOESNT CONCERN THEM because it is not a Conservative Candidate tha was accused.

    The ME TOO MOVEMENT people are a joke. Their initial game plan made perfect sense but they were bought by the Democrats as this is clearly obvious.

    Why isn’t HER voice heard Dr?

    Due process was ignored during the Kavanugh Hearings.

    Without any corroboration this lady pops out of nowhere to state her case. The ME TOO MOVEMENT people had already said he was guilty. The Dems all said the same thing.

    Why is t this being said about Joe Biden Dr?

    Oh now, we have to investigate a little to see if her complaints were accurate.

    Give me a freaking break.

    I can’t stand the hypocrisy amongst the Democrats with this issue.

    And I’m not ignoring the Republicans as well. Both are at fault on a lot of fronts but since Joe Biden is the nominee the DEMOCRATS AND THE ME TOO MOVEMENT people are church mouse quiet.

    And that is a joke!

    I don't think Biden wins the election.

    Tara Reade has been heard. She's also not pressing charges. or asking for justice. In the Kavanugh case she was.

    With that said, I think Biden's handling of this is absurd. "It never happened". If it didn't? Ok but there's a far better way to make that point. But I would guess it happened to one extent or another and he could very easily and wisely come out with a "I didn't realized I had done that. I thought it was consensual, I didn't realize she felt uncomfortable. I feel terribly about that. If I made her feel badly or unsafe, I am deeply sorry. I didn't see it that was and I don't think I behaved out of line"

    I think Trump loses the popular vote by a bigger margin but still wins the election

    The ME TOO MOVEMENT people are a joke. Their initial game plan made perfect sense but they were bought by the Democrats as this is clearly obvious.

    Why isn’t HER voice heard Dr?

    Due process was ignored during the Kavanugh Hearings.

    Without any corroboration this lady pops out of nowhere to state her case. The ME TOO MOVEMENT people had already said he was guilty. The Dems all said the same thing.

    Why is t this being said about Joe Biden Dr?

    Oh now, we have to investigate a little to see if her complaints were accurate.

    Give me a freaking break.

    I can’t stand the hypocrisy amongst the Democrats with this issue.

    And I’m not ignoring the Republicans as well. Both are at fault on a lot of fronts but since Joe Biden is the nominee the DEMOCRATS AND THE ME TOO MOVEMENT people are church mouse quiet.

    And that is a joke!
    Nick Context! I was responding to a claim regarding Trumps racism. How we got here from there is quite a stretch. But since we have gone context free (if that's ever possible), I offer the following tidbits for your reading pleasure:

    On March 6, Trump said "anyone who needs a test, gets a test."
    On May 7, only 2.3% of the U.S. has been tested.

    Trump is now bragging that America has done far more testing than South Korea.

    75,000 have died in the US. Only 256 have died in South Korea.

    They did their testing in January and February while Trump was golfing, holding rallies and pretending he had it all under control.

    Did Tara Reade file formal complaint? Has she filed suit or asked for a criminal investigation? She has been heard. In fact she recently cancelled an interview with FOX news Chris Wallace. Biden has requested Senate sec. to release any and all documents relating to the complaint. Biden was fully vetted during his selection process for VP, no complaint surfaced. Let the truth come out and let the chips fall where the may. I have no problem with the truth, unlike some.

    Travelers from New York City sparked second coronavirus wave: report

    Travelers leaving New York City for various locations around the U.S. were responsible for much of the spread of*a second wave of the coronavirus in the country, according to findings from scientists.

    The New York Times*reported Thursday that researchers tracking the genetic makeup of the virus now believe that many scattered outbreaks in localities around the U.S. had their roots in New York, where city residents fled lockdown orders and likely spread the disease.

    "It means that we missed the boat early on, and the vast majority in this country is coming from domestic spread," Kristian Andersen, a microbiology and immunology professor at Scripps Research, told the Times. "I keep hearing that it's somebody else's fault. That's not true. It's not somebody else's fault, it's our own fault."
    "We now have enough data to feel pretty confident that New York was the primary gateway for the rest of the country," added the Yale School of Public Health's Nathan Grubaugh.

    Grubaugh went on to estimate that between 60*and 65 percent of U.S. coronavirus cases as of May could be traced back to New York, suggesting that earlier action taken in the nation's largest city could have prevented the virus from spreading.

    New York state ordered lockdown procedures in late March, but state officials in particular were criticized over the slow pace of actions taken to shutter bars and other public places seen as hotspots for the virus. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) originally resisted closing New York city schools during the crisis, though he later reversed course.
    Cellphone data analyzed by the Times points to localities around the U.S. experiencing outbreaks after an influx of travelers from New York state. Much of the travel began two weeks before city officials implemented a stay-at-home order, the newspaper noted.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.
