I generally agree regarding memes. But it's completely the opposite in political/cultural stand-up.

@amuir

His woke fans objected to it. He put it behind the Patreon wall. I should be able to get you a copy if you want.

@teslanaut

where's that Forgotten Realms MMO RPG I used to dream of? More into Eberron now.

@Bishop

It shouldn't take anybody else moving. No matter who is our leaders, we are definitely more libertarian than Canada, and will be for the foreseeable future. Ask any American libertarian. They do not want to be Canada.

And regarding mean lefties, sorry. I think your response is understandable but still wrong. "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." Many lefties are just doing the same as you, cause they think the right/libertarians started it.

@amerika

I've gotta think the car accident didn't help things.

@Bishop

Now you're as bad as them if you don't follow up. I don't believe most of you Canadian conservative NA peeps are anywhere close to preferring Trump's America over Trudeau's Canada, even as you constantly attack us lefties down here. Same goes for Australians. You're half trolling us, half feeding the tribe just to see what happens. Some lefties here are crazy but most of us just want an American government more like yours.

Thanks. @adam has a good point about PCR amplification but I'd hope there would be pushback if the FDA etc calls for more cycles without a good explanation.

Would you rather they have guns? The governments of Illinois and Chicago struggle with guns coming over from the next door state of Indiana and how the 2nd amendment is interpreted.

Please link the video.

Are you saying Cuomo's failure to distance the infected from others in the nursing homes didn't matter? It wouldn't have helped?

COVID has killed more people than the flu ever has in less time. And cases of the regular flu have been much lower, most assuming it's because of distancing etc.

Unless everyone is lying I guess.

People need to find a way to fight back for speech rights. France seems to be doing something in that area. What do you think is causing the knife crime? Honestly knife crime sounds kinda nice living here near Chicago.

@Mummabear

I think there's a very easy to transmit disease that's not that dangerous but given large populations, can kill a lot of people. But cause of the other problems that lockdowns create, we need to focus more on hospitalizations & deaths & carefully open up more. Masks and distancing are a reasonable ask. We chose to have my daughter back in school, for instance.

What does it have to do with then? I'd love to see the "COVID control" people argue amongst themselves sometimes.

If somebody does "all the right things", do they have a better chance of "success" in Canada or the USA?

@Mummabear

The concern is over how we affect others, thus laws against drunk driving and secondhand smoke. COVID19 policy has been similar, good intentioned but overly authoritarian at times.

The percentage of people who use an actual picture of themselves as their profile pic seems a lot lower on the than compared to big social.

@Johnny_of_the_swamp

I don't recall Sam disagreeing at all, but neither did I. People would do better just listening to my show instead :)

listening to Murray & Weinstein now. podcatchers need a better simple share option. just heard them use liberal incorrectly, ugh! progressive (not liberal) vs conservative, everyone should want to be liberal...

@valleyforge

that chart looks good for the last 5 years it has data for ($10k increase) but there was a smaller increase in the previous 30 years. and I believe health care costs, college and housing have all gone up much faster.

I think Trump attracted many people who feel this economic pain, but because their patriotism is tied into America as a meritocracy, were turned off by the Bernie message. They're stuck unwilling to attack a system that is actually hurting them, because of ideology.

America has an especially angry lower class cause it pairs a growing inequality of opportunity with the myth of meritocracy. It's easier to accept that your shitty life is just bad luck than to (falsely) believe the elites you hate deserve their lives & be correct to despise you.

I think @JoeBiden@twitter.com basically kicked @realDonaldTrump@twitter.com's ass tonight, but Joe did his fair share of misleading imo. I don't believe the laptop HDD is a Russian plot & we need to know more ASAP. Post it all online immediately please.
