Debate Tonight


A normal debate would have a single topic known in advance.

While it is possible to find something unprecedented in almost any event, tonight’s debate has an easy one to pick out. The debate’s organizer intended to silence the participants at various times.

Each side will have 2 minutes for each 15 minute segment, uninterrupted time.

Even though it’s kinda like being preemptively put in time out, strangely, this moves the event closer to the format of an actual debate.

In 1948 a presidential primary debate focused on outlawing the Communist party and in this one the opening statements were 10 times as long!

Some people think that there should be no muting because it can only make Trump look good and throw off Biden or the moderator, but this probably can’t stop either thing from happening.

Some of the recent residents of the ISS have made it safely back in time to watch the debates from solid ground.

Some of the information obtained from NPR concerning this national event was modified by the other party at 9:50 ET

The federal government is bound and determined to deliver another massive stimulus package to the US citizenry, but they just can’t decide how to do it.

In this recently denied legislation, $300 per week additional unemployment and about $500 billion total aid were attempted.

Even just the talk of stimulus is having a negative effect on the value of the dollar.

Currency debasement is nothing new.

Despite there being a whole lot more money flying around from recent stimulus and more to come, It isn’t quite the same as printing money since it comes in the form of debt. But experts say we shouldn’t worry about additional trillions of debt.

Josh Hawley keeps trying to hold Big Tech accountable tho.

This stimulus was an amendment to the UIGHUR Act of 2019. ¯\(°_o)/¯
