Wife suggested earlier that in the next debate they use dog shock collars for control.  10 seconds over your time a light shock, keep talking, they keep getting stronger.  Same thing with interrupting your opponent.  I think the prez would spent the whole time flopping around on the floor in pain.  Which I would laugh at.

In Trump's case, the electro-shock collar is an excellent idea.

One of my favorite psychiatry professors back in the day taught me that sociopaths only respond to the threat of external consequences for their behavior.

It's a waste of time to appeal to their conscience, because they have none.

Trump's exit strategy is already being worked out.  Today he announced that Sudan is being taken off the "terrorist sponsor" list.  They have no extradition treaty with the US.  He is probably angling for a large enclosed estate there where he can be "alone" if he loses.  Maybe some quick banking deposits as well.

This ruling may well just decide the election in 2020.

Supreme Court Tie Blocks GOP Effort To Limit Mail-In Voting In Pennsylvania

The 4-4 vote among the justices means the state can still count ballots received after Election Day.

The U.S. Supreme Court delivered a blow to Republicans on Monday with a split vote that effectively allows Pennsylvania to keep its extended mail-in voting period.

The justices’ 4-4 tie leaves in place a lower court ruling that will let state officials count ballots received after Election Day unless there’s evidence they were sent after the deadline. Election officials have three days to count those votes, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court determined last month.

Supreme Court splits 4-4, leaves Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision in place allowing more time for mail-in voting. Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would have granted GOP request to block the Pennsylvania court’s ruling.

I've got to say Niederhut, that doesn't seem like something a psychiatrist would say, especially as a joke, retired or not.

Don't you find that professionals usually have the least sense of humor when it comes to jokes about their own profession? (Especially when the audience is not their professional colleagues. When a group of professionals are joking about their profession, its usually inside jokes and things they would never say to a patient or customer.)

Table A shows the annual Flu Totals in Canada as reported by Infection Prevention and Control Canada (IPAC.)

Table B shows the same thing, except the 2020-2021 total (year to date) now has a foot-note.

 

 

I may be wrong here gentlemen, but I think Covid is the cure for the Flu.

What does everyone else think?

 

Maybe later I will post a chart showing the shop drop in the infant mortality rate since Covid hit in Feb./March.

I was never much of an anti-vaxxer before the statistics started coming out showing falling infant mortality rates during Covid. The drop in deaths though is very pronounced, and it really makes a person think. (I'm still not an anti-vaxxer so don't throw that at me. Everything in moderation.)

Biden Will Make America Lead Again

We need a president with decency and a sense of respect.

By William McRaven Oct. 19, 2020

(Retired four-star Adm. William McRaven is the Admiral who led the raid that killed Osama bin Laden).

““This week I went to the polls in Texas,” wrote McRaven “Truth be told, I am a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative.”

CDC: Fight against COVID may help in fight against flu
https://www.klkntv.com/cdc-fight-against-covid-may-help-in-fight-against-flu/

According to a new report, the threat of the flu season may be lowered this year because of the efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

“If we continue doing the right thing for COVID, we may not see flu this season,” Dr. Carlos del Rio, an Emory Infectious Disease Specialist, said.

With increased mask-wearing, social distancing, and handwashing, we are protecting ourselves from COVID-19 and the flu. In fact, countries in the southern hemisphere are already seeing some positive trends.

2 More Funny Feelings About 2020

By TIM ALBERTA 10/20/2020

https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2020/10/20/alberta-two-weeks-2020-election-feelings-430238

“Generations of pollsters and journalists have fixated on the question of which candidate voters would rather have a beer with—a window into how personality translates into political success. Here’s the thing: Americans have been having a beer with Trump for the past four years—every morning, every afternoon, every evening. He has made himself more accessible than any president in history, using the White House as a performance stage and Twitter as a real-time diary for all to read. Like the drunk at the bar, he won’t shut up.

Whatever appeal his unfiltered thoughts once held has now worn off. Americans are tired of having beers with Trump. His own supporters are tired of having beers with Trump. In hundreds of interviews this year with MAGA loyalists, I have noted only a handful in which the person did not, unsolicited, point to the president’s behavior as exhausting and inappropriate. Strip away all the policy fights, all the administrative action (or inaction), all the culture war politics, and the decision for many people comes down to a basic conclusion: They just do not approve of the president as a human being.”

- Vito Corleone, er... Donald Trump -

“It’s just crazy. I saw Shifty Schiff get up yesterday and say this is Russia,” Trump exclaimed, using his favorite nickname for Schiff. “He’s a sick man. He is so sick. We went through two and a half years of that, plus. This guy, he ought to be put away, or he ought to be, you know, something should happen with him.”
