    I still have no clue how this applies. First, many slave traders also wore pants, shirts, and socks. Kente cloth is about as common to many African tribes as those things are to us. I know based on...

    Yes. The initial estimates for a vaccine was 12-18 months. That was in January, so we are 5 months into that. Presumably, we're looking at another 7-13 months before we have a vaccine.

    The science tells us that, unless a country has completely eradicated the virus and then maintains closed borders, the virus will continue to resurge until we have a vaccine. We can slow this process...

    I believe the question is, did he create a separate business for each brand, or did he have a single business with multiple products under the "Trump" name.

    Well...no...not exactly. If a business has only one brand - then yes - the brand and the business are essentially equivalent. But many (most?) businesses have multiple brands because hitching your...

    I didn't suggest you speculate about what others might do. I suggested you ask yourself what your reaction would be in that circumstance.

    No - he didn't. But the point is not to compare Trump with Obama. The point is to check a position for bias by asking oneself what one's reaction would be if the same thing was done by "the other...

    The issue was not "one man in one cart." The issue was Trump intentionally retweeting a video containing such a message.

    Try the "how would I react if" test. So imagine Obama was the one who just...

    He seems to be pretty much on the wrong side of every major issue of the past several months. But I have to admit it is a joy to see his approval tanking and Biden surging in most battle grounds....

    The claim is "he didn't hear it." I have to admit I have my doubts, but it frankly doesn't matter. If he did it on purpose, he's a racist. If he did it accidentally, he's an idiot. Either way, he...
