    The Republican Governors Association pounced on Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Tuesday following revelations of a settlement of at least $62,500 with a former campaign staffer who accused the first-term Democrat of grabbing his genitals. http://ow.ly/wtjY50EnJHG

    So what does everyone think of the situation in India? That’s what could have happened here. Who still thinks it’s a hoax?

    yep, no indoor dining at restaurants, gyms shut down, etc,.. in 15 of Oregon's 36 counties, including Portland, Eugene, and Klamath Falls, where I live,.. Oregon's spring football game is tomorrow, Saturday,.. no fans are allowed in Autzen stadium

    The move of 15 Oregon counties to “extreme risk” level for COVID-19 restrictions on Friday means some tightened regulations for sporting events in the affected counties. Although outdoor full-contact and noncontact sporting events can continue at the youth, high school, college and professional levels, the extreme-risk label means crowds will be capped at 100. That compares with capacity limits of 15% in counties deemed high risk, 25% in counties at moderate risk and 50% in counties deemed lower risk.

    Counties could shift to a lower risk level as soon as next Friday if cases dip or if statewide hospitalizations either fall below 300 or don’t continue to increase at 15% or more each week, Gov. Kate Brown’s office said.

    Dems wont ever give up the power again now that they have seen how compliant the lemmings are. I bet it even surprised them that many of the "GOP" voters are also very compliant to authoritarian rule.

    Too bad the world is controlled by politics and day by day there are less and less freedoms to enjoy without some governmental over-reach...

    Need an example? Politics have absolutely ruined sports. Prove me wrong.

    the world is controlled by governments,.. our country is controlled by media politics, that is so wrong, don't bow and stoop before politics, stop empowering it,.. America became great despite politics, not because of it

    and you're part of the politicization of sports, the orange man helped amp up that shit, with his stance on kneeling during our anthem,.. he violated the purity of sports as much as the kneelers, and you supported him,.. it should have been a who gives a fuck issue, this is America, let em do what they want, now let's play ball,.. Trump turned it into a big issue for his political gain,.. and there was a backlash by athletes and others in response to it

    anyhow our country is going to be fine, greater.. after we're done slogging through some more mud,.. I'm not sure our beloved sports will survive though

    India has over 1.3 billion people and their China virus death count is 204K. What are you talking about?
