    Reopen Schools?

    I still believe they have to go back in fall. If they don't, they won't go back at all in 2021.

    Reopen Schools?

    Can't even get 94% to have a similar opinion on the color of the sky. So if this decision is left to the Department of Education, how tied in are they with the teachers unions? I assume it's essentially the same thing, or am I wrong?

    Reopen Schools?

    I'm not saying base your assumption on it. I'm just answering the question of where the "distance learn preference" teachers are. They are replying to facebook posts with meme's, and they are teachers. So from that I would guess that at least those teachers are the distance learn preference.

    Reopen Schools?

    Just read replies from teachers anywhere it's posted online with a comments section. You find out pretty quick who the "we want to be paid to distance teach our kids" crowd is.

    Reopen Schools?

    Again, if we wait to open, what are we waiting for? Is it the vaccine? Is it some sort of school infrastructure to better ensure safety? I'm fine with the argument of waiting, but what are we waiting for. We flattened the curve. (In fact, we flattened it so much, I believe we may push our...

    Town Ball

    Last year I want to the games at State at Delano. Nice ballpark. As I get older I plan to hit more of these type of games. A goal of mine is to attend the majority of ballparks and write a book of haiku's about each one. Then sell a percentage of the sales up front for millions to Mike Max and...

    Reopen Schools?

    I guess I didn't see this as a right wing / left wing thing. I think it's pretty likely utilizing logic that things won't be different in Minnesota in January 2021 regarding school opening than they will be in September. That's why I think if we don't go back to school in fall, it won't happen...

    Reopen Schools?

    If this were true, why ever go back then? Eliminate the department of education. Provide online learning only. Eliminate all teacher positions. (You only need one teacher to do one class for the whole U.S. for each subject). Provide support via counselors for troubled student. Open up daycares...

    Sorry, I don't understand what point you are trying to make.

    That's a bad idea.

    Six new swing-state polls released: If the election was held today Biden would win in a landslide 333 electoral votes to just 205 for Trump

    Helmut Norpot says Trump has 91% chance of winning. http://primarymodel.com/ Got 5 of last 6 elections correct. (Missed on GW vs Gore). So all we know if it will be a landslide one way or another. (I'm highly skeptical myself of Trump winning).

    Reopen Schools?

    I think a poll said 63% want schools to open. But Walz is also going for the "safest Governor" award which many people appreciate. My main point is, if we are going to wait, what are we waiting for? A vaccine? Screening technology? Teachers to say it's 100% safe?

    Reopen Schools?

    I think a vaccine within 6 months is a long shot. I think a vaccine in 10 years likely. To trust a vaccine that makes us 99.999% safe (or 95% for that matter) against the virus in 4 years is really unlikely. (Teachers seem to be demanding that things are VERY safe (95% or more?) before they...

    Reopen Schools?

    The issue is, who at the school district level is really motivated financially to solve this? Most admin related people will want to ensure job safety and stick to union ideas and not "step out of line". The union will fight for the most pay for the least amount of work / least amount of risk...

    Reopen Schools?

    I don't think it's that ridiculous. A certain percentage will get it no matter what, and if we flatten the curve to care for those who need hospital space, that's in all likelihood the best we can do. If 50% of the population is going to get it, we're going to get it in 2020, 2021, or if we...
