If your fear of Kamala Harris is greater than your hatred of Trump, well, vote your conscience. Then try to sleep well for the next four years if your guy wins.
I don’t know where y’all live but if you drive out of Eugene up Highway 58 toward Oakridge or west on 126 toward Florence, as soon as you’re out of the city you start seeing very large Trump-Pence signs erected on private property facing the highway. Like professionally-made mini-billboards. Don’t think you’ll find a similar Biden-Harris sign anywhere. Just an observation. Draw your own conclusions. Maybe the property owners put the signs up. Maybe the Oregon Republican Party pays them to put up the signs.
Seeing the actual tax returns would provide a very important visual component. Without seeing the documents, it’s just another nebulous anonymous accusation that Trump can dismiss as more fake news from the failing NYT.
“Pics (scans) or it didn’t happen.”
What’s especially disappointing to me is NYT says they obtained the documents anonymously and they do not intend to publish the documents. Hopefully that will change.
All Trump has to do is keep the economy propped up for another six weeks or whatever it is. I’m expecting the 2nd round of stimulus checks to be announced in about four weeks to help with that.
All probably true. Unfortunately this is already baked into the cake.
We need something new, like he shot someone. Oh wait, never mind, nobody would care.
I hope I’m wrong but I doubt I am.
This just helps confirm what everyone already knew. It will barely cause a blip in the polls because it’s not a surprise bombshell.
I’m baffled as to why things aren’t much worse with the economy
That’s shorthand for everything you all keep elaborating on. We’ll just have to disagree that we agree.
I should have added “…in spite of it being propped up with things like stimulus checks”.
Paul, we’re pretty much in total agreement. The point I’ve failed to make a couple times now is I’m baffled as to why things aren’t much worse with the economy. Smoke and mirrors going on in an election year.
Lol. New homes are being constructed around me in east Eugene at the highest rate I’ve seen in the 25 years I’ve lived here. And they’re selling. The lumber isn’t all going to coffin makers.
New commercial construction in downtown Eugene is booming.
Cloud computing, telemedicine, information technology in general all booming.
I’m just saying there’s not a tidal wave of economic doom on the surface. Look deeper though and things may be less rosy.
I failed to make my point. The economy is not in a complete state of disarray. Yet. There are segments of the economy doing exceptionally well, in spite of all the uncertainty.
The country isn’t in crisis, yet. Stumbling, in shock and denial, definitely. False euphoria on the part of large investors. But crisis may be coming if the presidential election isn’t a blowout in favor of Biden-Harris.
Not sure how an assessment of the state of our economy in late 2020 can not mention C-19.
I know a guy who’s a sales manager at a large lumber mill in Eugene-Springfield. He says that after the initial lockdown confusion, during which their employees were cut to half-time, 2020 has rebounded into their best and most profitable year ever (and it still has three months to go). Of course, all that proves is lumber is selling very well and at high prices, in spite of everything else negatively affecting other parts of the economy.
I’m afraid Vitalogy is probably correct. But every bit of GOP revolt might help a little. Baby steps.
If a station has no news staff at all, what can they do? Isn’t that the hole EAS is supposed to fill? There were many EAS alerts on Eugene stations for a couple days there.
I got nothing.
Did relevant EAS alerts go out in a timely manner? It sounds like the stations had no plan at all for handling an immediate local emergency, beyond EAS (assuming that worked).
It took KRVM a couple days to catch up but they’ve done many PSAs specifically about this emergency and they directed listeners to this on their web page:
