Oh snap, Twitter is escalating. 

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-29/twitter-trump-minneapolis-post-broke-rules-glorified-violence

Trump is gonna get banned at this rate.


Damn, paywall.

https://variety.com/2020/digital/news/twitter-donald-trumps-warning-label-minneapolis-glorifies-violence-1234619685/

Part of me hopes this will happen, that Trump will lose his shit completely and shut down twitter. It will do a couple things:

1. Trump will lose his primary communications platform.
2. Perhaps the melt-down will be enough to sway some voters and republicans to the other side.

More likely what is happening, is that trump is setting himself up for future success after his presidency ends - he will engage in a massive law-suite on all the social media outlets who have "done him wrong".

Signing the executive order was the first move in the game of chess. Twitter is nothing more than a pawn in his grand scheme.

Two questions:

Those of y'all who like Trump, can you name two things he's done that you disagree with?

Those of y'all who dislike Trump, can you name two things he's done that you agree with?

Wait a second... I misread the post....

So, I should answer in the affirmative...

1. He gave $$ to farmers after creating a trade war that hurt farmers

2. Increased the standard tax deduction - although I'm not sure how this will pan out after a few more years. This could be something I end up holding against him.

Thanks for the feedback. Is there any sort of posting sandbox I can use to test BBC tags without actually posting?

1. Removed EPA regulations preventing companies from dumping toxic, harmful chemicals into rivers and cricks (more properly called 'creeks').

2. Separated children from their parents because they didn't fit a certain criteria.

Now you just have to decide whether or not I agree or disagree with these 'things'... that was a joke...

Well if this isn't the pot calling the kettle black.

Trump himself has voted by mail in Florida, but apparently now, it's not good enough for him.

Technology & Information / Re: OpenBSD 6.7
« on: May 27, 2020, 08:46:53 PM »
OpenBSD 6.7 was released this week. See the full release announcement for the (many, many) improvements made. Aside from the usual incremental progress, the main ones I'm interested in are the adoption of FFS2 as the default filesystem on most platforms, and extra hardware support, particularly for newer Intel Wi-Fi chips and the Pinebook Pro.

I decided to throw a fresh install of 6.7 on my Pine A64+ board. Here's the dmesg:

Yeah, I think it would be better for everyone if we just stopped engaging him. In other news:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/27/politics/donald-trump-twitter-threat-regulate/index.html

haha Trump is mad

I want to see Twitter double down on this. It would be nice if they did something with his deplorable Joe Scarborough conspiracy theory tweets, especially since the poor woman's widower asked them to.

He won't shut down twitter. It gives him too much power, and for free.

No recommendations to take it only in hospital.

Hmmmmmm.....

https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2020/05/studies-find-further-lack-covid-benefit-hydroxychloroquine

Quote
Earlier this week, the American College of Physicians posted guidelines recommending against using hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, alone or in combination with azithromycin, in COVID-19 patients, unless it's within the context of a clinical trial and the decision to treat is made with patients and their families.

American College of Physicians - https://www.acpjournals.org/doi/10.7326/M20-1998

Quote
Do not use chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine alone or in combination with azithromycin as a treatment of patients with COVID-19 due to known harms and no available evidence of benefits in patients with COVID-19.

Not only are they recommending to only use in a clinical setting, they are also recommending to not use it PERIOD (to treat COVID).

Do I need to go on?

The link you posted clearly states the words, "cautions against."

I don't care if you argue back or not...

I am getting rather tired of your orange man bad routine, regardless of what he does...

Seems like you would have enough to monitor in your own life, trying to do the best you can with that, rather than thinking you somehow have an honest critiques of Trump.


Because you don't...

So, you don't think "cautions against" is a recommendation to abstain?

Also, now I have further evidence that you did not, in fact, read the article, but only the heading (which states the phrase "cautions against") - likely you only read the URL.

Had you actually read the article, you would have found something along these lines:

"We recommend initial evaluation and monitoring when using hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine " ... "Monitoring may include baseline ECG, electrolytes, renal function and hepatic tests".

So, unless you have an ECG or other hospital equipment in your home, that means they are literally recommending to use in a hospital or clinical setting.

You would know this if you had read the article.

More claims without substantiation.
I ask him to read the material he submitted and it amounts to, according to him, no evidence and no substance.

Thanks for admitting your link was bogus.

See, when someone presents an argument and gives a quote that supports it, for someone else to say, "You're wrong, just read what you posted..." 

Well, obviously I read it as I gave a quote from it.... YOU on the other hand are just blowing smoke. If you think anyone is buying it, you're mistaking. I am more annoyed at this point that I keep having to waste my time replying to your nonsense.... give me something to argue back if you feel so strongly that I'm wrong.

I can't argue the crap you post because I already did! You can't just say, "You're wrong, hahahah, and I know it because I'm right."...... enough ranting (this doesn't belong here, but you need to hear it).

It occurred to me that this whole business about states having the right to open as they see fit vs Trump trying to force the issue is perhaps the clearest expression of how much Republicans have sold out their basic principles in favor of supporting Trump.

Silence or support from most Republicans about it... and the Republicans are supposed to be the party of limited federal power and expanded state rights.

It's a stark reminder of the fact that the Republican Party doesn't stand for the same things that they did before Trump took office. It doesn't really seem to stand for much anymore other than keeping Donald Trump happy.

It's sad to witness the degradation of an entire political party like that.

It doesn't seem like it would take much (at this point) to push the US into another civil war. The US is already divided by at least 40/60, probably closer to 50/50, and with Trump provoking his base the way he does - creating discourse in virtually every arena of politics, civility, and economics; the further lack of trust the American's have in its leaders, and growing fears of the unknown. Mix all of this with a pandemic (and our governments inability to lead through it), and we are creating a perfect storm.

If Trump is reelected, I don't see any of this getting any better.
If we go through another shutdown over BS, you are right about that.

It was BS, and you still support the guy? He cried like a toddler, kicking and screaming about it, until he realized that he can just get a bigger stick and hit back.

Again, it is recommended you simply use the gif I provided earlier, any time you post in this particular thread...

Quite simple...you don't even need to be in the hospital to use it!

LMMFAO!

Coming from someone who A, never provides support for wild claims, and B always resorts to insults when brain is exhausted.
I want to make sure I have a clear understanding of your post, so let me paraphrase...I read something on the order of the following:

Dear Sir,

Allow me to factually misrepresent the facts concerning Trump taking hydroxychloroquine while under a doctor's care, without you pointing out the clear language contained in the link I provided...further, let me insult you while accusing you of doing the same.

Yours very truly,

timterroo

Did I get that right?

Going with "B" I guess...

If you think I'm misrepresenting facts, why don't you provide evidence of that and back your claim?
Start with reading the material in the link you provided.

I think that is pretty strong evidence.

This is exactly what I'm talking about.

More claims without substantiation.

Please stop posting.

I feel like the quoting system is flawed. If this works out, people could use it to make notable posters say whatever they please. There is a fact checking system, but how often does it check?

I mean, click on the link then, and see what it really says? Not too hard, and I'm not even a seasoned forumer..... if that's even a word.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/white-house-remains-mum-questions-about-trump-s-annual-physical-n1213266

Makes you thonk.

Really, who's going to make the president complete their physical every year? It's not required by law, and even if it were, Trump could still just ignore it to the cheers of his fans and the quiet acceptance of the Republicans in Congress. Maybe he'll just say, "Believe me, I'm 6'4 and 220 lbs, all of it muscle. I'm in perfect health, tremendous health, way better than Obama, spectacular health," and his fans will go wild.

“Too often in history have presidents concealed secret illnesses and medicine routines that had the potential to undermine their leadership, and the wellbeing of all of us.” - from the article

Ah ha! Since Trump isn't a leader, there is nothing to undermine, so he doesn't have to say a damn thing!

Doctors and scientists are not saying do not use hydroxychloroquine and they are not recommending to only use hydroxychloroquine inside of a hospital.

Stop posting false information.

https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-cautions-against-use-hydroxychloroquine-or-chloroquine-covid-19-outside-hospital-setting-or

I'm sure you won't read the article, and will instead follow up with another "na-uh" and then continue your winey attacks, but at least others in this thread who can read will see the truth.

Edit:

From the CDC with regards to the use of hydroxychloroquine (since you won't read it, I'll quote it here):

"There are no drugs or other therapeutics presently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent or treat COVID-19."

To spell it out for you, hydroxychloroquine falls under the "No drugs or other therapeutics"

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/therapeutic-options.html


Post Edit:

Please don't come back with a strawman about hydroxychloroquine being approved for lupus, malaria and blah blah blah..... Please remember we are talking about using it for COVID-19, specifically, the POTUS using it in a way directly against CDC and FDA guidelines.

Regardless how you look at it, for Trump to come out and publicly announce he is taking the hydro was messed up.

Since it has not been approved for use, and the Drs and scientist say "DO NOT USE!", there can be only two angles here:

1. Trump is lying, which would be disgraceful to say the least (however is the norm for Trump).
2. Trump isn't lying therefore, what is his motive in publicly defying Drs and scientists - which is seems equally disgraceful.

There is literally nothing Trump has done to unify, or lead the country through its worst crisis since either the great depression or the spanish flu - which this current crisis is a combination of both. Trump has succeeded in further dividing and exhausting this country with crap like this.

Those who still support Trump are victims of a type of psychological abuse similar to that which is suffered in domestic abuse cases - in which the abused cannot leave the abuser due to some twisted sense of learned dependence.
Doctors and scientists are not saying do not use hydroxychloroquine.

Oh pardon me, they said they "don't recommend to use outside of a hospital", which is exactly what Trump did.
