It's wonderful and hideous and represents so many bad things but represents that time were the Reagan people were like "Nope nope nope, listen Donnie, you need to stop, OK?"

It's like Trump's hands though, in that it seems smaller than it should be. I mean, it's a half dollar, so it's exactly the right size, but I feel like it should be big enough for Flava Flav to see it and think "I need to wear that like a necklace." I'd wear that medallion.

I think I just had a revelation.


MAGA is commonly thought to be that America is not great but Trump could make it great again.  But what if its not?  If America is already great then he can't make it great again... UNLESS he makes it horrible first.

Maybe that was the message?  That America will be great after he is gone?

You can see what these tests are like online, they're super easy. My grandma did one of those as her dementia had started to set in, and she still passed it.

It's not pass or fail.   ::)
It's a screening tool.

An actual full test is several tests with many dozens of questions each,
with no obvious relevance to the patient.
Also, what would be the point of testing someone
already diagnosed with dementia?

If you already have dementia they give you that test or similar to try and gauge where you are on the spectrum so to speak. And periodically, going forward, tracking where you are as opposed to previous results.

A few years back I was in the hospital and had a not necessarily uncommon reaction to the anesthesia (It was a ketamine cocktail of some sort). In short, I was a hallucinating quite a bit. I could be having a normal conversation with you sitting beside me and also carry on a conversation with the person sitting next you who wasn't there. As well thinking we were all at a ski resort in Switzerland, could see the white tipped Alps outside the windows, etc. (I was in the States, palm trees out my window). Anyway, I was repeatedly given those tests. The effects of my temporary dementia lessened and lessened over the course of about 5 days - The tests on each of those days went from confusing to normal. Thankfully, not the other way around.
Not to hijack this thread, but now you got me curious. What kind of questions did they ask?

Trump is lioterally doing just this.

He keeps talking about how terrible mail in ballots are, saying they won't get counted or will be changed or are otherwise bad.

Guess who mail-in voters in Florida vote for?

Yup.  Retired people overwhelmingly voted for Trump, and they use mail-in voting.

Trump is suppressing his own voters.

He is literally telling his own voters not to vote.

Brilliant.

Maybe he knows he is going to lose, so is just trying to set up as much distrust over the results in advance as he can. He certainly doesn't care about other Republicans running for office.

I'm going to terrify you and tell you he does appear to have a strategy here. 

Step 1.  Cripple the post office.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/07/14/postal-service-trump-dejoy-delay-mail/ which will inevitably lead to massive delays in mail in votes.

Step 2.  Very loudly declare victory selectively in the parts of the country he's winning during election night.

Step 3.  Declare any mail in votes that push Biden over the edge as invalid.

Step 4.  Get the Republicans to challenge every instance of mail in votes making the difference all the way up to Trump's Supreme Court.

It effectively means that Biden has to win by a wide margin to be acknowledged as legitmate.

And as he still to this day denies the 3 million more votes that Hillary got than him, a wide margin won't even cut it.

No matter what the numbers he will declare it's all fraud, fake news, a conspiracy, the deep state.

I can see it.  So Europe at least should be able to.

I just flipped to a random spot and they were talking about test cases and Trump pulled out charts, said they were deaths by case instead if population, and they just... Looked awful.

Not just basic in their formatting but so little information.  Like one had 4.  Just 4 bars.  And I'm like "Aren't there more than 3 countries?"

It was the kind of graphs a lazy high schooler would out together, not the President's team.

I'll be dead in 15 years. The world can go fuck it's self.


BTW, Medicare sucks. Medicare for all is hilarious.
It does not pay for much. Just the bare minimum.
It is also not free. Recipients get billed every month.

Doctors are not obligated to accept Medicare.
Doctors can not be forced to accept Medicare.
That would be servitude.

Nobody can be forced to work against their will.

Is that what Republican supporters have to tell themselves the alternative is to justify how they vote?

I guess with Trump and his mob being the obviously corrupt and incompetent administration in the country’s history, people’s imaginations must be going into overdrive to convince themselves.

It turns out the best rebuttal to literally anything Trump says is, "Why?" Just ask him to back-up the things he's saying and he can't do it.

Anyone with even a modicum of intellect is a threat to the GOP. A toddler could best a Republican in a debate. I'll certainly be throwing a grand old party when we throw that clown to the curb in November.
