    There is something truly maddeningly ironic about watching people I know who voted for Trump post their support / grief for George Floyd, oblivious to the fact they support a president who has actually endorsed police brutality, endorsed racist tactics against black Americans, and generally seems to enjoy watching white police offers use oppressive, unnecessary force against them.

    I'm trying to find a list of Trump's comments about police force, the "roughing them up" comments and such, and found this which I remember being a huge deal, which police spoke out against.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/n…

    • covering their basesR_Kercz
    • Holy FUK... Floyd and the cop may have known each other. Woah, they both worked security at the same club.robotron3k
    • Nobody is on the cops side if that is what you're thinking. President Trump, CNN, Fox News, NY, etc are 100% in agreement.robotron3k
    • Be honest, if Trump fed you a narrative against the black guy you'd be repeating that too :)yuekit
    • mg33, one big one is that Trump took out a full page ad calling for the Central Park 5 to be executed...all of which turned out to be innocent.yuekit

    Coronavirus

    I'am slightly starting to think we do way too much against the covid19 for some specific things. I know this is a very contagious virus, but sometimes it seems the logic is thrown out the window.

    • i'm curious what you think is too much, like some specific things? I agree a bit when it came to closing parks and open spaces which you can social distance safcapn_ron
    • Refer to the Japanese flu from the 50s for a alternative approach. The mortality rate, numbers of dead, etc seem similar to our current pandemic.MondoMorphic
    • some people seems to think that virus is literally jumping from people to people. Lots of paranoia. And its normal i guess with all the news since months now.Bennn
    • How strict is the lockdown where you're at? I feel like I see people on TV protesting, but then I talk to my family back in USA and their lives are basicallyyuekit
    • So much of the problem early on was the lack of understandingMondoMorphic
    • normal with a few minor restrictions.yuekit
    • It's important not to let a non-elected person dictate the health policy of an entire country. Yes Bill Gates I'm talking about you and your hobbies.robotron3k
    • Meanwhile in Spain people were literally trapped inside their homes. I don't think Americans or Canadians ever went through something like that.yuekit
    • But all of this has been politicized. Look at party tits Cuomo, what a turd he is. I'd like him to step up and try Washington, they will eat his lunch.robotron3k
    • Ask yourself if you want the virus. I personally don't want to risk it. Sure could be mild. Could also be permanent damage and weeks in an ICU.shapesalad
    • For sure, the politicization has been awfulMondoMorphic
    • So while tiring to have all these measures. I'd rather have them than the virus. Next you can ask yourself if you want to pass the virus onto your family...shapesalad
    • I was just looking to see if I could have a bonfire on the bay here and there is no stopping, sitting, or laying down. only moving is allowed.capn_ron
    • Once you think through those two questions you start to calm down and think yep, lockdown ok, at least we're in an industry where you can WFH anywhere.shapesalad
    • we're preparing for another spanish flu of 1918, see if we can practice safe measures before the Tsunami hits in the fall, so far they're tracking the same._niko
    • I'm guessing it'll be more like the 50s' Japanese flu, but you could be right, _niko. Who knows how covid will mutate.MondoMorphic
    • Winter is Coming!utopian

    • And there is a political aspect because this dumbfuck administration completely bungled this in multifaceted ways.garbage
    • Yeah fair point garbage, I'm sure it depends on your job, daily life, whether you have kids etc. However I do think that for all the protests and even with theyuekit
    • highest number of deaths in the world, people in USA never saw a total lockdown like some countries did.yuekit

    • I would not be surprised if we hit 200k before year's end. Things are warming up, people are getting bored. Cases are ramping in CA and southern states..garbage
    • ..and that outpaces older models for a second wave. Fall is going to suck in a big way.garbage

    Conspiracy of the day

    £339 anti-5G devices are really just £5 USB drives with a sticker...

    A device costing more than £300 promises to protect your family from the supposed dangers of 5G, using ground-breaking quantum technology - but does it work?

    The 5GBioShield was recommended by a member of Glastonbury Town Council's 5G Advisory Committee.

    One of nine external members, Toby Hall, said: "We use this device and find it helpful," and provided a link to its website, which describes it as a USB key that "provides protection for your home and family, thanks to the wearable holographic nano-layer catalyser, which can be worn or placed near to a smartphone or any other electrical, radiation or EMF [electromagnetic field] emitting device".

    Mr Hall said his remarks in Glastonbury Town Council's 5G Advisory Committee report should not be seen as a recommendation to buy the product.

    But he had no regrets about buying it and since plugging it in had felt beneficial effects, including being able to sleep through the night and having more dreams.
