  1. Black BAME and POC supporters of Trump

      You answered before I could edit, I was going to add that this isn't to down play the danger the far  right posses. My impression is also that the right tends to engage in more direct violence (Murder) While left in doxing rioting etc.   noticed this from the article    Daily interpersonal violence and state violence pose a much greater threat to Americans than any kind of extremist terror attack.    
  2. Black BAME and POC supporters of Trump

    Noticed this today from the Atlantic White Noise Inside the Alt Right White Noise, The Atlantic’s first feature documentary, is the result of a four-year commitment to investigating and exposing the roots of rising white nationalism in the U.S. and abroad.   Well researched and produced but it begs the question, since the rise of Trump 99% of politically motivated crime has come from the left. So why have no main stream producers covered Antifa? The media (other than Fox news) has barely covered the Antia riots. this leaves plenty of room for right wing conspiracy Theories to thrive.   As an aside one thing that really annoys me is since the election of Trump any one who is conservative (either who votes Conservative or Republican) is automatically tagged as a racist.  As El Jeffo pointed out, skin colour is irrelevant, if one votes the wrong way or holds the wrong opinions. Lesyn Lewis came within a few hundred votes of being the first POC to be both a white racist supremacist and a leader of a major political party.              
  3. Coronavirus

        As an afterthought one thing I don't expect the change anytime soon is how businesses have reaction.. No face to face meetings no travel, work from home etc. Same with conferences etc, unfortunately the knock-on effect of that will be huge.
  4. Coronavirus

    I'd say, now 6 months in and no hope of the pandemic ending people Are saying “fuck it” life goes on.  Noticed restaurants are much busier, more and more people eating inside, almost nobody social distances anymore. Only thing remaining the same is people tend to wear masks and even that is changing. In the bank yesterday to sigh some paperwork and first thing the guys asks if we can take off our masks.   Governments are getting desperate Ottawa Canada is threatening 5000 dollar a day fines to anyone who doesn¡t quarantine if they have any symptoms. Order of course excludes teachers. Lowly paid essential workers, sucks to be you if you can't afford rent or food.   Australia is looking more and more like China! 
  5. Long but fascinating and down right terrifying account of how Nancy Pelosi could have a legitimate claim to the presidentcy.   Personally I expect another repeat of Bush vs Gore but with Trump refusing to concede and the Dems as per their natural behaviour give up         https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/11/what-if-trump-refuses-concede/616424/
  6. President Donald J. Trump

    A great analysis of the US election, short take is the Dems will again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory I guess trying to win an election by appealing to disaffected conservative voters while ignoring your base isn't a good election strategy. Rachel "The Doc" Bitecofer (on Twitter) has been saying pretty much the samething. Regardless of who wins America as we know it  won't survive this election   PS hope to god I'm wrong on this   to quote   Not that Biden's doing much to motivate anyone. The former vice president's campaign has crafted an election strategy appealing to a few dozen so-called Never Trump Republicans   Yes Trump could win Again   https://theline.substack.com/p/eoin-higgins-yes-trump-could-win?r=15yob&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&utm_source=copy  
  7.     That's what I thought, checked Amazon but it wasn't the right product, I'll ask next time and update    
  8. Noticed recently that some restaurants are burning, what looks like coffee grounds, to keep the bees (note generic use of the term bee) away. Anyone know what they are burning? I forgot to ask. I want to get some to take with me, went out for breakie today and got dive bombed the moment the food showed up. Wasn't much of a relaxing breakfast
  9. 🤮     Edit: Notice how Andy always uses "she" rather the correct (from a left right point of view)  "he" that's because mis-gendering is the the most heinous crime one can commit on twitter. Death threats, rape threats, any hate directed towards women is fine but misgender some poor sod enough and you're banned for life from twitter
  10. Coronavirus

    Go hard and fast and then get things opened again ASAP... A delicate and daily balancing act. (via facebook post)       The problem with this that politicians are being disingenuous, they keep saying a few weeks and/or months of restrictions, the end of the year for sure than everything will be back to normal.  But nothing could be further from the truth, Covid is here to stay and so are the restrictions.  I suspect it’s why politicians have grabbed a hold of the printing presses. They know the economy isn’t gong to recover anytime soon and mass unemployment is bad for the their political futures so let's give everyone money and just inflate the debt away.   But I really wish they’d be honest and say this is here to stay we need to learn to live with it.

  13. Is there a maximum age for a mortgage?

    Spoke with a friend and they got a mortgage (at 53) for 33 years so maybe rhe bank was feeding us a line. Friend said that they’ve uad a long term relationship with the bank. So who knows
  14. Is there a maximum age for a mortgage?

    Quick update: at the bank now and what the new rules are is a mortgage must be paid for by retirement. So either higher down payment or higher payments. Suppose it’s good as it will help keep a cap on prices.
