I agree, but what consequences did the democrats and media face for lying about a free and fair election of 2016 for 3.5 years and inciting violence over it?


Just curious if you had the same belief when they did it for the last 4 years?




Lol, you think rationale thinking will supersede hypocracy?

I think the points being made here are changing a lot of minds.  It's been a joy to see.

I feel bad for those generational businesses that were looted and burnt down during this mostly peaceful protest

Was able to obtain a pull up tower, so no longer need to go to gym except to swim


Today is usually the worst day of the year to be at a gym, wondering with virus fear relavent, if it is still crowded with the New Years Resolution newcomers?  Remember it will die down each week, and by mid February, it will be just  regulars


Backed off of the heavy the last few months to focus on form


Curious how many of you lift barefoot?  Feel much more on the chain especially with squats and deadlifts

9-2 Army gets their shot. Tennessee has Covid issues, so they dropped out of the Liberty Bowl. Army said they’d play, Liberty Bowl accepted. 

Glad to see this news

I still have a hard time understanding how there can be so many 'desperate' people when just about every manufacturing company is trying to hire people.  At some point, if you are in one of the industries that the government has destroyed, you need to move to another sector where desperate employers can't find workers.

Have been thinking about this.  ER was just under 4 before the shutdown, shot up to 15 in April, has slowly edged down under 7.  The lag on this must be tremendous, I am seeing a lot of "help wanted" signs on various industries.  The transition to a different employment should be showing on the economic indicators in the next few months.  Still it is sad to see so many family businesses go away due to the shutdown that was only supposed to last 2 weeks

Bill Hemmer interviewing Fauci and asks "only 1.5% of cases in NY are linked to bars and restaurants - was it a mistake to shut them down?".

And Fauci just dodges and goes to "well, you've got to provide financial relief for them".

Whether bars and restaurants might actually reduce private gatherings (where 75% of cases are spreading), or increase them with people "continuing the party at Bob's"....I'm not sure how much difference that makes if you can't and won't enforce curfews and restrictions on private gatherings.

So the follow up question was not..."relief for who?  you think the staff can survive on government handouts in NYC?"

The big question to be decided is how long before we return to normal?  Because the more austere and draconian leaders seem to be signaling 6-9 months or longer...while I'm thinking 100M vaccinated by the end of February is basically pandemic over in the US.  A lot of people could still get it at that point, but their mortality rate would be virtually 0.

Two weeks

Maybe your friends immune system sucks.  Maybe their diet sucks.  

I'd say over half the population of the united states is metabolically unhealthy, so there is that so the reason to put small businesses out of business.  It is okay to go to McDonalds, but not to a gym

I'd prefer antelopes or goats; an animal that together is referred to as a tribe.

Would be beneficial to the Big Ten if Northwestern is impressive today against the Illini

Thank you for making my point........its not here yet

"for the same period of time on the calendar"

The flu is just running late this year?

Speaking of accommodations, it's certainly too late for next year, but at the nearest point possible in the future, tOSU should get consecutive home games against TTUN.

So OSU would also owe Illi a back to back in Champaign?

Flu season isnt even here yet.


Do you even know why we have a flu season?  The temps and air quality arent there yet for flu.  Too warm and wet in most of the country.

Weird, why is this government agency reporting 20,000 in 2019 and only 39 for 2020 for the same period of time on the calendar?

On top of what I said above, flu and COVID are the same type of virus (that sphere with the suction cup things around it) and they are both around 100nm in size (submicroscopic, can’t see it with regular microscope like a single cell).


So yes, the study is relevant to COVID.


If they are the same type of virus, then how did COVID virtually eliminate the flu?

So the risks of paralysis are worth it to eliminate .04%
