  3. Yes, Trump notably even went as far as to use the Defense Production Act to ensure that we used our resources to produce vaccines as quickly as possible. You also have to laud the guidance provided to states to assist in the rollout and logistics involved. And how could we forget the massive PSA campaign he underwent to convince everyone that the vaccine is necessary to achieve herd immunity? One thing we can be sure of though, is that Operation Warp Speed produced the modern miracle of a vaccine. It is simply a coincidence that multiple companies driven by

  4. The thing that pisses me off about the reaction to mass shootings is it's the same each time and it's stupid each time, and most of that stupidity is coming from the GOP. 1. It's a mental health issue. But let's not spend more $ on mental health issues, and lets call people snowflakes, betas, and cucks when they act like pu**ies. People need to grow a pair and toughen up. 2. How dare the Democrats politicize this. Now is not the time to talk about it. But let's not talk about it a month from now either because people have forgotten about it and we're off the hook.

  8. This is the dumbest f#&%ing thing. I cant stand Buttigieg, hes such a fake little s#!t. And the reason we cant cut the defense budget is because both parties dont know how to read a damn poll and they are bought and paid for by lobbyists.

  9. I wish we could get somewhere on this, but if a guy lights up a kindergarten and kills a bunch of little kids - and we literally do nothing to prevent it from happening again - we're never gonna get anywhere. It's been proven that a segment of this country doesn't give a f#&% unless it directly effects their lives. As long as their kid wasn't shot - they don't want to change s#!t.

  10. Nothing like limiting the mobility of the workforce... Depending on the tax rate, this would suck in rural areas like Nebraska. With the small commuter towns across the state and the need for people in Omaha metro area to travel all around town (public transportation sucks in Omaha) for work will get punished for it. Maybe if you can claim "work miles" as a deduction. Filling out mileage logs every week sounds like a great time

  11. I never really understand the, “we don’t know what we have, so we must not have anything” comments I see so often. We won 4 games last year. It’s not like Wandale was so good we won 9. I’m confident someone will eventually step up at both WR and RB.

  13. You hit on several great points. I'm not opposed to additional regulations around improved background checks, looking at ways in which to properly carry out red flag laws etc. I'm simply unwilling to hand in my firearms until our elected officials security hands them in. I'm also against several of these ideas around requiring insurance and annual license fees etc as that simply allows the rich to be armed and the poor to be disarmed. I'd love to actually address a multitude of issues that exist prior to taking away law abiding citizens guns. We haven't even come close to exhausting thos

  14. I wouldn't use powerful as the way in which to describe the AR15. The .223/5.56 round that it uses is nothing special. It is lightweight, easy to maneuver with, low recoil, easy and quick to reload. It is precisely why I have one in my home because my wife can easily use it if it is needed. At night it would be what I would grab first.

  15. Was anything I said inaccurate? The CDC and FDA under the Trump administration worked to fast track these vaccines. Biden is reaping the benefits of that just as much if not more than Trump did. We were on our way to the 100 million doses in the first 100 days before inaguration day. It's just the truth.

We leave behind the era of tough-on-crime prosecution and zero tolerance policing and no longer default to the status quo to criminalize mostly people of color for addiction, said Mosby in an official press release." -"The program has led to decreases in the overall incarcerated Baltimore population by 18%, while violent and property crimes are down 20% and 36% respectively, according to the press release." https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/27/us/baltimore-prosecute-prostitution-drug-possession/index.html

  18. People need to employ Occam's razor more often. Georgia goes Democrat for the first time in ages. Their state level Republican leaders make a bunch of changes to voting laws, including giving more power to themselves to pick members of the election board. What the f#&% do you think the purpose is? If you think it's because of voter fraud, I question your # of brain folds. Republicans need to stop being scared of the perpetual supposed impending socialist takeover of this country and look at what's happening right in front of their eyes.

  20. Yep and People who are not Biden supporters in general should be willing and able to give Biden administration credit for building on that initial success and getting us to where we are. Herd immunity through vaccine was projected back in December by Azar to be reached sometime between Easter and beginning of summer. Looks like we might be able to hit that mark.

  23. I think that's a good assessment of where we are at. And what needs to happen on the O side to be better than the past 3 years. To the bolded, a lot have mentioned playing with the guys we have, not what we want. I'm really hoping we run a lot of 12/13 personnel to not just have more blocking and "weight up front", but to also try and create some mismatches, drop one back as an HB, use more in short yardage/goal line etc...This could be the best group of TE's we have had in years. Hoping we use them. Lean on them until the rest of the O catches up. Bring out something special

  24. It is a multi use multi purpose rifle. Hunting, self defense etc. It checks all the boxes. Again we are talking about on average 15 mass shooting deaths annually with this weapon. If we want to discuss other ways the AR15 kills via suicide etc then we need to address that the vast majority of gun fatalities are handguns.

  26. We rushed for approx 1660 yards in 2020. Take away the QB runs and we are at 775. Take away Wan'dale and we were down to 535 yards by RB's....That's not a "run heavy" O. That's the kind of O capable of winning 4-5 games a year. Sadly, with no RB returning with more than 24 touches (Scott 24 for 62 yards for 2.6 a carry) I do not expect much better. And it's an O that has gotten worse each year. We lost JD, but had Wan'dale. We just lost Wan'dale. What do we have now? AM-521 Mills-396 Luke- 364 Wan'dale-240 I'm hoping we get old quick on O.

  29. Overall NCAA thoughts... Hard to not chalk up NCAAs as anything less than a tremendous disappointment, especially given how well NU wrestled at Big Tens. Will be interesting to see who comes back and how things shake out with guys like Bubba Wilson and the incoming freshman. Iowa may have won the NCAA title but PSU was the story. Damn Cael gets those guys to peak at the right time. Extremely impressive performance. 125--I still think Cronin got jobbed in his consis match but would've been hard pressed for me to think he goes further than one extra round. 141--M

  30. I would much rather have my AR but am confident I could make it work with a multitude of firearms. If we want to address mass shootings like you mentioned and only 15 mass shooting deaths annually are attributed to the AR15 how big of a difference does that actually make? Now if we want to talk gun violence in general we need to address all guns and how to decrease gun violence in general and not just mass shootings. This becomes a very multi layered issue and I am confident we could come to a multitude of agreements around a multitude of contributing factors and ways in which to attempt to re

  34. How much more time he needs is irrelevant. Moos isn't firing him as they're tied at the hip so a new AD would have to. I don't see leadership wanting to do anything for at least 2 years with Moos and Frost might get one more year under the new AD. Not that they should consider making a change any faster. Frost has to get this fixed or it won't get fixed. I can't imagine anyone else wanting to coach here beyond a smaller school HC using us as a stepping stone. Settle in, Frost either fixes it or that's probably it for the sellout streak and fan apathy becomes real.

  35. Yeah I really want people to get the vaccine but if you don't want to, whatever. That being said, I don't see how people can use. data to justify not getting the vaccine. So you're not getting a vaccine for a virus that kills 160/100,000 people, because 1 in a million vaccine's administered ends in a lawsuit settlement? Or you're not gonna get a vaccine for a virus that kills 160/100,000 people because 1.9/100,000 people vaccinated died around the time they got the vaccine and it may or may not be connected to the vaccine.

  36. The bold sounds to final - I'm getting old (65). But true. I think the party missed its opportunity to change a few of times during the past 30 years. The GOP was on solid ground when there was a common enemy - communism. It was the party of national defense, opposition to communism, patriotism and it cloaked itself in the song "Proud to be an American". But then the Berlin wall fell and the party lost its identity and in a way it's sense of national importance. Everyone knew the Dems were better at the 'soft issues' of compassion, welfare, etc. And really better at national governan

  37. First, I will not call someone names for not getting a COVID vaccine. I understand the vaccines are fairly new but they rely on research that has been ongoing for years. Saying all that, I find it funny that a group of individuals talk out of both sides of their mouths when it comes to this pandemic. First we can't trust the COVID numbers because "people getting hit by buses (you can insert any way of dying not related to COVID) that tested positive from COVID are being counting as COVID deaths." and now we referencing a site that lists people dying because they happen to get a vac

  39. One time does isn't generally considered a trend. But it will definitely be interesting to see what happens in the future. Was Trump just that bad? Or are people losing faith in the entire GOP? Six months ago, I would have thought the main goal was to bring back some stability. But with the GOP seeming to double down with Trump's rhetoric, it might continue to cost them. We'll see

  41. This paragraph is crazy: "Notably, it was the first time in history the spending benefitted Democrats in a presidential race more than Republicans. About $174 million went to supporting Biden’s campaign, while former President Donald Trump benefited from about a seventh of that, or $25.2 million." Not only did a democrat benefit for the first time, but did so by so much is pretty indicative of how a lot of even wealthy Americans were desperate to see Trump go.

Or surrendered responsibility for the border wall to Jared. Or surrendered responsibility for the opioid crisis to Jared. Kinda think those are things that trump should have done rather than play golf, yeah? Hold up a sec - I'm going to go look for all the posts condemning trump for surrendering all that responsibility to Jared. Should be easy to find...
