The amount of tests aren't necessarily evenly distributed, genius.

If you lie enough, you'll start to believe it.

what so stupid is: Who is he conning? The man on the ground in his state is telling him he doesn't have tests, does Trump think there is something he can invent to say to him that makes him suddenly think "Oh yeah, the Prez hasn't been hearing about tests to I must be wrong about what I know at home". I mean, the exchange was ludicrous. 

Probably the closer explanation is that since Trump lies to get what he wants -  he is just projecting that everyone is lying to him to get what they want.

So, I hate to burst your bubble, but you might not live in the country with the stupidest f***ing moron of a political leader in the entire world, going back the last 200 years.  I would have said so, hands down, not even close, don't insult me with the question...and then I read this article.  Sweden?  Come on, really?  Sweden?

Out of curiosity, let's just go around the room and, when it's your turn (let's go left to right), you stand up and give the answer to this question:  How old were you, the first time that you said "WTF is the Electoral College?"

OK, let's see. When I went to school in Det they had drifted away from doing Jr High (or "Intermediate School" as they had called it) at least on my side of town. Things were organized mostly K-8 and then 9-12 in the HS. IIRC, and I probably don't, the curriculum for 7 and 8th grades included world history one year and American History the other, but I don't remember which order. That sequence was then repeated again in HS and there was an addition HS requirement called "Civics" or just "US Government". In any case for me it would have been that 7th or 8th grade history class. I feel like I've known about it as long as I've known about Presidential elections anyway.

Good answer, 7th grade (or more correctly in Canadian, Grade 7) makes you 12 years old.  That's a good answer, I think that most people at 12 years old would think of the Electoral College thing as being a bit of a mystery.  Did you win the election, or did you not?  Is you my constituency, or is you ain't?

I have to say, as a formerly 12-year-old foreigner, that I was aware of the Electoral College even if I didn't understand it.  I was very interested in history back in those days, and our family actually had a set of encyclopaedias, and on rainy days I would just pull one out and start flipping the pages.  So at some point I became familiar with the concept of US presidential elections, and then this mysterious "Electoral College" thing would crop up, and my 12-year-old brain would go "WTF?".  Which of course my 68-year-old brain still does.

I don't understand how anyone that believes in God could rationally think that Trump is a God fearing or God following type of person.  How can someone be so disconnected between their beliefs and reality?

Our neighbour is Swedish. I spoke to her at the weekend - from across the road to maintain distancing of course - and she just couldn't believe what they were doing in Sweden. Bizarre set of choices.

Remember that time the president contained an outbreak?  Too bad he was black, glad we fixed that with this clownshow.

Listen up dip****s and sensible people...

I know this might sound a little extreme, but stick with me here.  

I'm thinking the claims to the "party of life" might not be in good faith.

Do pregnant women get an extra $500 socialism check for their fetus? They are babies and therefore dependents.

There are a few reasons.

a. Religion is a con.  Yes, there are good people doing good works in *His* name, but, in the end it is a con with a nicer veneer than most.  I know this is an insulting take. I was raised in a religious household, went to church for decades.  It's a con.

There are unscrupulous leaders who use their position (e.g. Falwell) to promote their political beliefs and their flock follow.

b. People behave and think in no small part based on how they were raised to behave and think.  There is a large group of people out there who absolutely believe this is the way a leader should act, *and* can find a Bible passage that supports it as justification.  Classic logic fail - take a position then find data to support it rather than the other way around.

It has been demonstrated that babies are not worth money in the form of social support once they are born.  That fetus' only value to society is to justify stocking the court with unqualified but sympathetic judges and to gin up some votes.

So, no, on the extra funds.

Unless the fetus owns a bank.
