    Questioning a man like Donald Trump's motives is entirely rational. To not do that would be irrational. It's only pretzel logic to people wishing to be contrarian in an attempt to defend the president. There's going to be enough skepticism around this without him jumping in trying to push it through for the sole motive of electoral benefit rather than a health benefit. His history on this pandemic is quite clear that it's all been about how it affects him personally not us. There's no pretzel logic.

    I will be signing these Limited Edition Topps baseball cards at The Corner Ballpark in Detroit Tuesday afternoon from 1 AM to 4 PM. Please practice social distancing norms. There are only 100 cards and the signing fee is $1000 per card. All proceeds will go to arming LGBTQ Antifa youth militias in hopes of cementing a coalition with the Sharia Law armies, which according to the emails I received from people living in Idaho, have been policing the streets of Dearborn with tanks and armored troop carriers for the past 20 years. This may be the last chance we’ll ever have to keep America Gay, Communist, and Muslim. Thank you for your support.

    The pro life party is all ok with this You know... the ones who went on and on about Netflix and the "cuties" movie, yet are ok voting and supporting a guy who ran and owned the Miss Teen USA pageant. The Catholics who shame other catholics to the point of saying they aren't catholic for not being 100% against abortion yet don't say **** when it comes to the death penalty? **** all of them. The right wing Christians have done more harm for religion than any athiests have ever done.

    I’m not going to try to argue that Avila’s signings have been good. But to be fair he really only had two offseasons where free agent signings would have made sense, and the second one they were already over the tax line. But yes, pelfrey and lowe and zimmermann and Upton didn’t work out. But at least he got out of the upton deal thanks to the angels incompetence. But AA did successfully sign and flip Martin and Fiers during the tear down years. Did DD have good FA signings? Pudge and Maggs worked out. Victor’s first contract worked. His second was awful. Joe Nathan was bad. Jose valverde was bad. Prince was a very bad contract but he got out of it (after eating money to do so but whatever). Johnny Damon? Sean Casey for a second year? I’m sure I’m forgetting someone obvious. He did a lot of extending. Not sure if that counts in this discussion or not. But extension contracts to Robertson and Willis were nonsensical and Cabrera’s might be one of the worst in MLB history. I know it’s only natural to compare past and current GMs, and I know the present state of the team makes it easy to blame Avila (and the past state makes it easy to praise DD). I just don’t think it’s as good/bad as it is being made out to be.

    Btw, in case anyone is actually paying attention anymore, over 190,000 are dead. And, as opposed to the contention now being preached that this number is inflated, I believe it is vastly undercounted. But the GOP, led by their abomination of a president, doesn’t even acknowledge the pain that every family out there has lived with, and continues to live with. We’re dismissed. We’re called names. But more to the point, it’s IGNORED It is agony. Perpetrated by this beast of a man and his enablers, and now also by people who formerly were our neighbors and fellow citizens. It is agony. Every day.

    No. The problem is deeper than that. When clear majority policy preferences cannot pass from either side, it is extremely corrosive to people’s belief in the efficacy of government. And where you end up is pretty much where we are now, strangely enough..

    I don't believe a single word the Police are saying. Not one word. They have been lying about this from the jump. Then they tried to smear her reputation, as a justification. They are nothing but a brutal street gang and they can not be trusted. But we have a witness who said this and that. Yeah? What did you threaten the witness with?

    I agree with that. Hinch has shown that he's either (a) a cheater, or (b) incredibly weak because he wouldn't shut the cheating down. (b) is worse than (a). When he gets off to a bad start, the fans and the press will be ragging him about how he can't win without garbage cans (which is very possibly true), and it taints the entire clubhouse. I wouldn't touch him if I owned the team, I wouldn't do that to my brand. It's the Detroit Tigers. And I wouldn't listen to any horse**** about him being a winner; Altuve and Springer and Verlander and Bregman are winners. Earlier, someone said that Avila gave Morosi the list, but I think that it's probably the other way around. I wouldn't rule out DFK. And I was very surprised by what I learned about George Lombard. But seriously all the manager has to do is not screw up the pitching assignments. Do we know enough about any of these guys to know if they've ever handled a pitching staff well, or handled it poorly? If not, we might as well hire Bobby the Brain Heenan, or Colonel Jimmy Hart, the Mouth of the South.

    You see the wrong answer here because you are working from the wrong premise. The issue is never risk in a vacuum, it is always risk vs need. Students need to be in school a lot more than people need to be in theatres. The key is get R1 down to less than one *overall*. You don't need to stop everything, but you need to choose which things are more needful to do while keeping overall spread at controllable rate. You can argue about the particular wisdom of opening schools, but not because there is any meaningful comparison to movie theatres.

    Yes I do. And Yes there are still problems but not as bad as they are here. New Zealand had zero cases for the fourth day in a row. In Canada it's going very well. It's absolutely mind boggling to think that somehow this was inevitible. It wasn't. He ****** it all up and the people who voted and support him are partially to blame. "Hey, let's get a businessman in there... it'll be great". You get what you pay for. I remember him tweeting out a picture of the stock market one Friday afternoon after the markets closed.... as if anyone gave a flying **** about that when they were sent home from home, kids from school, meat not on the shelves, and no TP to be found.... "Hey the market went up again. Woo Hoo." Not all outbreaks are created equal. And this is also a case where the US could have actually led the charge and perhaps discovered something that could have helped other countries and be a leader like we were until we elected Don Trump President. No, it wouldn't be perfect or normal with another president but there wouldn't be 200K dead and a thousand more by the day either. He still doesn't get it. He only cares about it now because of the election. If this were 2019 or a year into a new term it would be a lot worse.

    I only joined up in 2004 so I am a mere pup. This is the only place where my addiction issues regarding this team are honored has an expression of authenticity instead of hilarity. Having never lived in Detroit the only time I have ever been around other Tiger fans is when I lived in Tucson and out of pure serendipity had a cluster of friends from Detroit and Ann Arbor. Total diehards. Patriots. Men of the cloth. Other than that, I’m the only one I know. Aside from people here. I’m grateful for this place.

    There's been some interesting pretzel logic on social media regarding the upcoming CV19 vax. Originally if one refused to be injected with a fast tracked CV19, that individual was more or less put into the "anti-vax" category. Now that Trump has put his weight behind the fast tracked CV19 vax and having it released before Election Day, those would categorize people with legitimate concerns as "anti-vaxxers" are now saying they won't get vax'd because of Trump. To me it's yet another example of how the national obsession with Trump is keeping people from thinking and analyzing with an independent and rational mindset. It's both a fascinating and disappointing observation.

    I wouldn't say I'm losing my mind, but your recollection on things isn't quite what you think it is and you're stating it as fact when it isn't. You clearly didn't even read the article that you posted as some sort of evidence of disease transmission. They also mention David Acer in the article. He was the deranged dentist who injected patients with his own HIV contaminated blood. There was never an increased risk of contracting AIDS at the dentist. You really have no idea what goes on behind the scenes where you go to the dentist.

    Oblong is suggesting that a big part, perhaps the biggest part, of the reason all the dirty laundry of the deceased is hung out for all to see is to make the victim less sympathetic. I also believe he was making a general statement about how these events are covered and information disseminated, as opposed to trying to draw a direct comparison with any specific case. I don't think he was trying to equate this tragedy with the one in Wisconsin, for example. And I guess I don't get the relevance of sexual assault being worse than a driving violation as it pertains to being killed. Did the sexual assault history influence what the cops did any more than some hypothetical guy with driving violations? Before you answer that, what if the driving violation is fleeing the scene and evading arrest at high speed? Maybe a cop with that information would think that guy has to be stopped before he starts driving because he has already demonstrated himself to be a danger to society when he fears arrest. Setting all that aside, unless the transgressions are germane to how the police acted in **the execution of their duty that day**, they should not be made public **and are red herrings**. That was Oblong's point. Not that driving infractions were somehow analogous to abuse and assault. I honestly don't even begin to know how you arrived at that. If the transgressions appear germane, I'd advise anyone / everyone to take anything the police department discloses with a boulder-sized grain of salt because they have a massive incentive to paint the incident in as favorable a light as possible.
