A Spirit Airlines flight attendant and a passenger argued over whether a gaiter was a sufficient face covering in a video that has been posted on social media.

Not actualy sure why spirit is bothering as 99% of the "Approved" face coverings do piss all to stop the type of aerosols that supposedly transmit the virus. You may as well be trying to stop a bee with a chain link fence, doubleing the layers does not increase your odds much.

Americans are divided on the forthcoming coronavirus vaccine as just 51% say they would get vaccinated for the disease if a vaccine was available today, according to a Pew Research Center poll. 

I'm sure not trusting whatever rushed out vaccine they push early on. I'll consider it after a year or so once they've shown its not only safe but also effective.

More than half a million people have signed on to a Change.org petition urging President Trump to sign an executive order to cancel all student loans as analysts from the Levy Institute have predicted that cancelling student loans could increase GDP by an average of $86 billion to $108 billion per year.

Want to forgive peoples home loans while your at it? Predatory or not these people chose to go into debt for collage. They felt the benefits were worth it and now have buyers remorse. Thats not even counting the ones that went for useless degrees or took on extra debt so they could party.

I'm fine with doing things to make it easier for these people to dig themselves out of their hole but not just teleport them out of it with a snap of the fingers. Set the interest to near 0 so at least the goalpost isn't shifting but they still have to pay back what they borrowed. It isnt right to screw over those that made responsible choices with their finances to shield those that didn't from the consequences.

yeesh thats one ugly patch job. I'm all for improv and ingenuity but that looks sketchy even for some of my one off, make it work at least once and in under an hour hack jobs. I wouldn't want to travel with that or even sleep near that thing.

There's plenty of pre built solutions of solar setups that recharge a battery pack that would be significantly less dangerous to travel with. Better to find one of those and get it properly checked out and declared for TSA/Customs.

White House adviser Peter Navarro was seemingly cut off by CNN host Jake Tapper during an episode of "State of the Union" on Sunday after the two got into a heated debate about the Trump administration's handling of the coronavirus outbreak. 

Ya Jake. Unfortunatly those stats only work out when you realize that the US has also done 50% of the worlds testing so they've seen alot more positive cases and any death while positive is listed as a death by covid. Rest of the world probably has a comparable number of infections at any given time but you'll notice some like china are reportedly covid free. I wonder why.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called for gun control less than 24 hours after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were critically wounded after a gunman open fire on their squad car in an apparent ambush.

Joe go take your dementia meds, that does not look anything like a so called assault weapon. Its a pistol not a weapon of war. If you really want to make the argument that it is then I ask if this makes these anti police thugs enemy combatants because we can end this whole debate really damn quick if we can treat them as such.

San Franciscans will cast their ballots in November to decide whether 16-year-olds can vote in local elections.

Somehow I doubt even lowering the voteing age would get these kids to vote unless you let em cast their vote via twitter/tictok or whatever SM platform. How do you expect to instill this habbit when you wont even bother to teach them anything about civics in high school?

The Cyber Guy Kurt Knutsson discusses the likeliness of the Mueller team's phone being wiped clean of data on accident.

Could it have happened accidentally? sure. When it happens to this many times in such a small sample of people it gets just a bit more suspicious. Once is an accident, twice is coincidence, Three or more times... well you know.

Protesters reportedly shouting slogans like "Death to the police!" showed up to the Los Angeles area hospital treating two law enforcement officers who were ambushed and shot on Saturday.

If these "Protesters" refuse to give way for ambulances with their lights and sirens on then just push through them. Squishy human vs front grill of an ambulance is no contest.

Wildfires burning up and down the west coast have led to extremely unhealthy air quality, prompting some cities to erect emergency shelters to shield homeless people. 

197? 228? pft I wish the air quality was that good where I live. Eugene OR was over 500 this morning. Been stuck using a respirator at work all week. Normally only need it while working with chemicals. Really feel sorry for the folks wandering around outside in just a cloth mask.
