In most states, you can only vote in the primary (which selects the candidate for each party) for the party you are registered as belonging to (though in a lot of states, it's easy to change your party registration just for the primary, and then change it back again). But in the general election, when the actual winners of the various offices are chosen, any registered voter can vote for any candidate.

The states which have open primaries (meaning any registered voter can vote for any candidate, regardless of party affilitation) are: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/primary-types.aspx But all of those states have already had their presidential primaries (some states have separate primaries for President and for state offices).

Yes, he has definitely sustained a lot of self-inflicted brain damage too. But often the mental dysfunction that leads to drug abuse is pre-existing, whether due to inborn factors or later injury or illness.

Biden can't memorize. He's already demonstrated that on many occasions. It's not like his staff isn't prepping him for his rare public utterances.

Hunter suffered a severe head injury a couple of months before his second birthday, in the car accident that killed his mother and baby sister. Much as we like to heap scorn on him, it's very possible that this injury left long-term damage. And as anyone familiar with head injuries knows, one of the most insidious effects is delayed onset of degenerative brain disease. This is a much more likely explanation for Hunter's history of poor decisions and antisocial behavior, than his father's strange habit of excessive and socially inappropriate hugging and kissing.

I don't think this kind of post is allowed here, so it will probably disappear shortly. But assuming you're legit, I suggest showing your landlord evidence of your new job and date that your first paycheck is due, and assure the landlord that you will pay the rent and any applicable late fees at that time. It's very unlikely that the landlord is allowed to evict you in this short time frame and during the pandemic restrictions. And in most housing markets, there aren't exactly long lines of credit-worthy prospective tenants, ready to plunk down a deposit and first month's rent and take the place of recently evicted tenants.

I don't have time or inclination to dig into the financials, but would caution that just looking at the stock price doesn't shed much light. How much capital as been invested in the company during the period that the stock price has been climbing? If you buy a house for $50,000 and do nothing to it, and sell it a year later for $300,000, something fishy is going on. But if you buy the house for $50,000 and invest $175,000 in wisely chosen improvements over the next year, and then sell it for $300,000, that's not an indication of anything fishy -- just an indication of wise choices in investing capital.

Where is BLM incorporated? That's how NY is able to go after the NRA to make a case that it must be dissolved under NY state law.

They also hired Emerald Robinson from OAN, but I think she's still on maternity leave for at least a couple more weeks.

And Trish Regan has been appearing on Spicer & Co quite frequently.

Whatever the residents decide to do, make sure to stay away for more than 6 months, to eliminate residency for tax purposes.

If I recall correctly, that doesn't work if you still "maintain a place of residence" in the city. Most of the wealthy people who left didn't give up their apartments, whether rented or owned. They just went to second homes they already had, or rented or bought a second home. If you rent out an apartment you own, or do a formal sublet of a rental, that would probably work. But most people who left didn't initially think they would be gone more than a few weeks, so they didn't ready their apartments for renting to someone else.

Not me. I don't own one of these infernal spyphones and never will. Basic cell phones are still available. Buy one and use it.

Children need to be learning facial expression cues at this age (2 and beyond). They need to be learning how to interpret other people's facial expressions, and they also need to be learning how their own facial expressions affect other people's reactions to them. Having that learning process interrupted is harmful, and the potential benefit is near zero. Other than children with suppressed or less than normally functional immune systems, masks are a bad idea.
