Coronavirus and Its Impact

Recommended Posts

My brother in law got screwed pretty bad by them.  It’s a sore subject with him. One of those things you don’t ask about but sometimes he brings up.  
I guess I have been lucky. I have only had one bad encounter at any VA Medical Center and that was at the Marion, Illinois VA facility. Having said that, still lots of issues on the non-medical side, especially with claims. Still taking too long

What a compelling and fact based argument. 
 

The Democrats controlled the house for 40 years consistently and easily. Between 54 to 94. Since 94 the longest a party has held the house is 8 years I believe. Something changed. And it was the death of bipartisanship

“But Gingrich had a plan. The way he saw it, Republicans would never be able to take back the House as long as they kept compromising with the Democrats out of some high-minded civic desire to keep congressional business humming along. His strategy was to blow up the bipartisan coalitions that were essential to legislating, and then seize on the resulting dysfunction to wage a populist crusade against the institution of Congress itself. “His idea,” says Norm Ornstein, a political scientist who knew Gingrich at the time, “was to build toward a national election where people were so disgusted by Washington and the way it was operating that they would throw the ins out and bring the outs in.”

“Coronavirus and it’s impact” for this thread.

There are a lot of posts right now that are pure politics. So, don’t do that.

 Thanks

Wonder if the Prez of U. of Michigan consulted with Jim Harbaugh about this.

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/05/24/michigan-wont-have-football-unless-all-students-are-back-on-campus/

There’s been a sense in recent weeks that some college football programs will find a way around the “no college football without college” principle by having a flexible definition of what constitutes “college.”

At the University of Michigan, there apparently will be no such flexibility.  Michigan president Mark Schlissel tells the Wall Street Journal that the Wolverines won’t play this fall unless all students are back on campus for classes. Schlissel added that he has “some degree of doubt as to whether there will be college athletics [anywhere], at least in the fall.”  Full story at the link above.

I wonder how all of the football players would vote? Do they want to play with all students taking online classes only?

I’d love for football to be played!

Me too; especially with IU looking better than they ever have, but I’m not getting my hopes up on that one.

I’m thinking basketball has a far better shot.
