According to you all no matter what tRump does he hasn't done anything wrong, but whatever Biden does is illegal and he should be immediately impeached.  Enough is enough.  Peace out.

My state rather wen the other way.  When I arrived you could only get booze in a state-sanctioned liquor store.  But they've opened up so some (not all) grocery stores. Not as good as other states where anyone can sell booze, but better.

If any of that were true the GOP wouldn't need to grill "whistleblowers" in their hearings.  They themselves have described their hearings as "investigative". They haven't got dick, they know it, and they're digging (which by the way is perfectly legal and they're right as elected representatives).  Who knows, maybe they'll find something?

Nepotism isn't illegal, nor is trying to do the right thing by your children.  Politicians and CEOs have access to avenues the rest of us don't, it's just part of the world.

As far as I've been able to tell the GOP have breathlessly dug up "whistleblowers" who've reported that nothing at all untoward happened. That Hunter Biden benefitted from being the son of a Vice-President is undoubtable.  That he was hired into a position for which he was unqualified for nepotistic reasoning is similarly undoubtable.  However, none of these things are in any way illegal, no more than tRump "hiring" his children, similarly and spectacularly unqualified, to work in his White House.

  If you are saying over 150 bank reports of suspicious activity, 20 shell companies, $20+million paid through various Biden family members, video tape of Joe Biden admitting he used the threat of withholding government funds to get a prosecutor fired, removal of confidential records, several Biden business partners testimony, IRS whistleblowers testifying against the Bidens, payments made to the Bidens by Russian officials, no pay back "loans" made by the CCP officials, plus all of the substantiated emails and other data from his son's "laptop from hell" are "zip".   Seems to be a bit more than "zip".

BTW, many of the Biden Crime Family activity took place while Joe held elected office, and by law that can be used against him in impeachment hearings.

No, what I'm referring to are facts, and not dub shit reported by nameless right wing bloggers.  I saw the same tape of Joe Biden using the American power of the purse to remove from office a prosecutor known to part of the old apparatchiks and enormously corrupt.  He was carrying out the wish of his boss, the president, and did nothing at all illegal.  We are allowed to use our money to influence vents abroad, indeed we do it all the time. What you're not allowed to do when you're in public office is use the power of the purse to get foreigners to dig up dirt on your police rivals.

If any of this were real it'd have shown up in GOP-led Congressional hearings long ago.  This is the first impeachment in history to occur in the absence of any evidence of wrongdoing.  It is along the first impeachment in history to center around potential deeds that occurred years before the Presidency.

GOP Congresscritters holding hearings have so far come up with zip.  Funny thing is even if they do, it isn't high crimes and misdemeanors committed during office, which is what impeachment is for.  None of this will stop them of course.

Here's how I see it.  Putin is trying to plug up historic invasion routes.  Russia has been invaded multiple times in its history, the Soviet Union had all those blocked.  Putin wants that again, and he isn't alone.  Had his quick war with Ukraine succeeded his next venture would have involved Poland, a NATO ally.  It would have involved us.

From what we now know the conflict would have been quick, asymmetric, and decisive with the Russians losing.  Now here's the really dangerous part.  The Russians would have a choice at that point, either bring the soldiers home or start using nuclear weapons.  This is now existential for the Russians, they're thinking about survival and potential invasion, and I think at that point their nuclear weapons become a viable choice for them.  And once things go nuclear they get really bad really fast.

Better we give Ukraine lots and lots of weapons to fight the Russians.  Better they go down fighting Ukraine than fighting us. Whatever we give the Ukrainians is money well spent in my view.

There is something wrong with the Universe, I find myself agreeing with Number 7. According to my readings DeSantis has raked in quite a bit of money from big GOP donors, what you all would call "Establishment Republicans".  tRump on the other hand has been drawing funds in from small donors, something DeSantis has been so far unable to do.  The rub is DeSantis will run out of big donors, they're small in number.  tRump will never run out of small ones.

Easterners who underestimated the effects of density altitude.  Taking off with a tailwind doesn't help any, though that could have been due to obstructions in that part of the country.  Insidious, but just another example of you don't know what you don't know. 

I've heard folks say a long cross country airplane trip is just a bunch of shorter ones strung together. I think that complete bullshit.  New locations can have new hazards that can bite you in the six.  Those folks found out the hard way.  I lost a good friend to the exact same thing some years ago.  Thankfully no one went with him.

I would say rather hard to say. The immune system is a very complex one and always evolving.

All of the lower responses mentioned don’t seem good on the face of it. But it is rather difficult to predict the actual clinical consequences of such physiologic changes. Which is of course why in-vitro studies are notoriously bad predictors of clinical outcomes.

I think this sort of article also belies the notion that all of biomedical research is hopelessly corrupted by big pharma. Which is not to say that our current regulatory regime does not distort things badly in some cases; however, the researchers here published what appears to be an honest and somewhat mixed result.

Peter, do you know anything about this journal?  I don't read the immunological literature, so I don't.

You claim to haven't taken a civics class.  Did that class cover the Presidental election?  If so, then you should get your money back.

I simply stated a true fact.  Sorry if it goes your panties in a wad.

Pancreatic cancer is tough.  It's usually symptomatic until start metastasizing, and then its far too late.

Do you honestly think the Russians are going to stop in Ukraine?  They're trying to plug up holes through which invasion forces have historically come, and Ukraine is one of them.  The next ones involve both Romania and Poland.

The minute the Russians attack a NATO ally they get to fight us.  And based what happened in Ukraine I'm pretty certain they'll be annihilated by us in a matter of days.  At that point what's left retreats toward Russia which now has an existential crisis.  They think this is for their survival, so they either give up or use Nukes. If they use Nukes it gets really messy.

We don't want that war, we don't want the specter of a nuclear conflict.  So we supply the Ukrainians with whatever we can so long as we don't put boots on the ground, i.e. so long as we don't escalate.  This war will be fought sooner or later, the Russians want security from invasion.  I can't blame them, they've only been invaded a bunch of times.  So it gets fought in Ukraine, and it is in our vested interest to keep the Ukrainians well supplied with American arms.  Supplying Americans with weapons in Ukraine is way cheaper than us defending Poland, and if the Russians win in Ukraine that's what we'll be doing.

Tell that to that bitch Hillary. She still can’t accept she lost to DT!

She did win the popular vote, but graciously conceded due to the Electoral College count as she should have.  And she told her supporters to support President tRump.
