    [–] New poll finds growing approval for Gov. Whitmer's COVID-19 response, widening partisan views of pandemic SAT0725 2 points ago in RealMichigan

    And 60% of responses were collected ... via landline phone. And you're only going to get people staying home by governor's orders via landline phone.

    Ha what kind of bullshit survey is this?

    "60.0% of respondents were contacted via landline telephone."

    That alone significantly skews the survey to the point of uselessness. Who's going to be home to answer a landline phone? People staying home to conform to the governor's orders! Also: Old scared people. I don't know a single person under the the age of 65 who even has a landline phone.

    [–] Lt. Gov. says Trump is preparing to question Michigan’s 2020 election results if he loses SAT0725 -1 points ago in Michigan

    That's not what we're talking about, we're talking about a losing candidate questioning the results -- which Hillary did.

    Why criticize Trump because his opponent said he MIGHT do something when the candidate from the side the opponent is on ACTUALLY DID that thing? You see how ridiculous that is, right?

    Attacking the source because you can't attack the legitimacy of the information doesn't make you smart; it makes you weak at arguing your point. The site may be biased, but is the information true?

    [–] Pelosi: Voting in the United States 'is under assault' SAT0725 1 points ago in politics

    If the Republicans ran a serious candidate against a sitting Republican president it would be unprecedented. When your candidate is the sitting president, they're your candidate. That's how politics works. And since you take such a strong position on the issue, does it upset you that the Dems did the same thing for Obama in several states?

    I don't.

    I also don't think all the constant Trump-bashing you all do here is brave in slightest. It doesn't take courage to make fun of Trump -- everyone does it on both sides of the spectrum.

    But put some big boy critical thinking pants on and realize that the Left is often equally shitty. There's no shortage of examples of Whitmer lying about things. Why do you support her?

    [–] Northern Michigan? A dig at the selfish people traveling to the countryside to ‘avoid the virus’ SAT0725 1 points ago in Michigan

    Your data doesn't change my data. If you're under 49 you're more safer with coronavirus than the flu. If you're over 65 stay home.

    Ah yes, the old "Listen to the experts at the CDC!" until they say something you disagree with, then question their expertise argument.

    You can't use CDC data to lock down the country then say CDC data isn't good enough to reopen because "it's compromised."

    Edit: Lol, still no link to the CDC data, to no one’s surprise. What a fucking tool bag.

    Sorry I don't serve all your whims on your own personal schedule. You know you can Google it yourself right? There are literally thousands of sources. Here's one: https://boston.cbslocal.com/2020/05/22/coronavirus-cdc-symptoms-asymptomatic-mortality-rate/

    "The CDC also says its 'best estimate' is that 0.4% of people who show symptoms and have Covid-19 will die"

    "For people 49 and under, the agency estimated that 0.05% of symptomatic people will die"

    So ... Trump MIGHT do what Hillary ACTUALLY did in 2016 by working with Jill Stein to try and force a recount? Jesus this sub is crazy. Let's criticize everyone for something their enemies say they might do six months from now...

    I thought Whitmer said her office wasn't going to play political games right now because there's too much work to do?

    [–] Biden swipes at Trump: 'Presidency is about a lot more than tweeting from your golf cart' SAT0725 -2 points ago in politics

    I'm not a Trump supporter, but why are people upvoting this? Only one of these people has been president, and it isn't Biden. Why would a sitting president care what a guy who's never won a presidential campaign thinks about what a president should be like?

    Your own post here is misinformed and misleading. The Politifact link you posted is from mid-April and in reference to an earlier claim. The latest photos circulating are from a radio host and were shot and posted May 20: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/05/confirmed-governor-whitmer-bans-michiganders-traveling-summer-home-cars-seen-parked-outside-summer-home/

    The CDC just revised its COVID-19 fatality rate estimate to 0.4% of those who are symptomatic; add the 40% or so who are asymptomatic and the fatality rate drops significantly. Their fatality rate for those 49 and under -- again, just symptomatic -- is 0.05%, which is well under the seasonal flu fatality rate.

    Again, this is from the CDC.

    In other words: Stop fear-mongering. No one's killing anyone by going up north this weekend.
