I am going to approach this as a debate coach/official as opposed to giving opinion as much as I can. 


4.  The Presidentís adviser early on admitted that the President relies on alternative facts which can be demonstrated easily by the sharpie incident with the hurricane.  The President makes up facts to suit him.  Is this who we need to lead a governmental response to a pandemic?  There is a truism that someone who is a demonstrated teller of falsehoods can be disregarded on future incidents.

Yep, nothing political or opinionated in this statement.  Have you every known a politician who hasn't/doesn't lie? Have you ever lied? Yes?, then, you Sir, are a liar.

Haven't you noticed.  Individuals with these strong political beliefs can not be shamed or convinced.  Remember, they live by the philosophy: never let the facts get in the way of your personal opinions.  To argue with them is fruitless.

You're right. Nothing political or opinionated.... just facts.  :sTiR:

This is yet another use of a logical fallacy, Tu quoque.  Look it up if interested.

Alabama high schools to play as scheduled.  Time-outs lengthened to two minutes.  One captain per team at coin toss.

serious question - what is the (health?) benefit of longer timeouts?

If the players are no longer allowed to share water bottles they will have to have their very own personal water container so it will take them extra time to find it and get a drink.
