    All media has bias of some nature. Nothing new in it. Been going on for more than 600 years. Johannes Gutenberg didn't invent the printing press but he was first to mass produce a book of his bias.

    We are all birds of a feather so flock to and consume media that reinforce our opinions on any given subject.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Just wait until OANN gets a foothold, and makes Fox look respectable.

    But that's has classified them as non-American... (and not so trustful as the other truth-loving MSM)

    Who says Fox News is non-american?
    If they were then they wouldn't get any viewers and would have to close shop.
    Fox News is a product of the US society as it is today.

    I don't know where to start with this, but since you already admitted you're just a pissed troll there is no point in bothering.

    i heard a couple of people i respect posit that republicans will do everything possible to turn lance bottoms or demmings into the 2020 version of sarah palin.....an inexperienced gimmick who is not ready to be president.

    biden is 77...he needs to choose someone who has the experience and skill to lead the country.

    No he doesn't, he needs to pick someone who can get him and his team elected.

    the point, harry, is that these two things are not mutually exclusive...

    4 years of trump's daily chaos, covid-19 and civil unrest has suburbanites on edge....they want stability.
    thrusting the mayor of atlanta onto the national stage against the vicious trump campaign borders on cruelty because odds are she's not ready.
    it's not exactly a secret that biden is old and his best days are behind him. warren and harris are the safest picks to ensure victory because they both are ready to lead on day one...and they have their appeal to segments of the base.

    in short, they will help to get him elected because they have the skill and experience to lead the country.

    i don't doubt that at all....this weekend proved that his health has deteriorated.

    i'd still like to know what actually prompted that emergency trip to the hospital back in november.

    All American presidents see their health degrade. The job sucks. We regularly saw Obama and George Dub go out and exercise though. This lardass not at all.

    he's actually anti-exercise.

    i read an article a few years ago about how he tells people that the reason he doesn't exercise is that he believes a heart has a predetermined number of beats, and if you exercise, you're actually shortening your life because exercise increases your heart rate.

    that's probably not exactly his theory, but it's more or less accurate .

    For those who are intrigued by Darwin's law this rally could be a real case study.

    BS to that he tells people.

    Do We Really Only Get a Certain Number of Heartbeats in a Lifetime? Here's What Science Says



    MIKE MCRAE
    14 APRIL 2018


    "I believe that every human has a finite number of heartbeats," the famous quote goes. "I don't intend to waste any of mine running around doing exercises."
    Contrary to what you might have heard,Neil Armstrong never said this. What's more, he disagreed with it. But as much as it's a misattribution, was Armstrong right to argue?

    The simplest answer is 'yes'. There is no strict tally for your ticker, keeping track of your pulse until you've used up your allocation of beats. So get out and exercise (after you've finished reading this article, of course).
    But there is a more complex answer, one that suggests there is at least some kind of relationship between our heart rate and overall life expectancy.
    In 2013, a team of Danish researchers published in the journal BMJ Heart 16 years of work on just under 5,200 men.
    Of the roughly 2,800 individuals who provided a decent bank of medical data, just over a third had passed away by the end of the trial from various causes.
    Matching the sample's resting heart rates with the rate of mortality led the researchers to believe that higher pulses correlated with a greater chance of dying.
    Those with between 71 to 80 beats per minute had a 51 percent greater chance of kicking the bucket during that period than those with a resting rate of under 50 beats. At 81 to 90 beats per minute, that risk was double. Over 90, and it tripled.

    In case you're thinking this was all about fitness or risk of cardiovascular disease, they took those factors into account. Even those who were in otherwise good physical condition seemed to be at risk, so once again, don't use this an excuse to do avoid going for a run.
    This sly nod to a relationship between life expectancy and heart rate extends past individual humans other animals appear to obey a similar ballpark rule.
    Check out this website to get some idea of what your pulse is like when compared with, say, a giraffe's.
    As we've seen, humans have on average a heart rate of around 60 to 70 beats per minute, give or take. We live roughly 70 or so years, giving us just over 2 billion beats all up.
    Chickens have a faster heart rate of about 275 beats per minute, and live only 15 years. On balance, they also have about 2 billion beats.
    We seem kind of lucky. A whale has around 20 beats per minute, and lives only slightly longer than us. It gets just under a billion heart beats.

    An elephant? Try 30 beats per minute for around 70 years, giving roughly a billion as well.
    The poor little skittish hamster has a rapid-fire pulse of 450 beats every minute, squeezed into three short years. That also adds up to a little under a billion.
    This rule isn't a hard and fast one, given differences of a few million here and there.
    But if we look at it in rough orders of magnitude, there does seem to be a heart-wrenching link between living fast and dying young for all creatures great and small.

    You're referring to your own posts?

    It's nice, though, that you have found the Biden thread after whining that there wasn't one even after you had posted on it.
