Well it's certainly disappeared from the news. 

nearly 124,000 new cases yesterday, 1165 deaths.

Today's looking worse.

And beyond. The thing's taking off like a rocket. Don't know how Biden's going to suppress it now.

We had to lock down hard for 6 weeks, manditory face masks, work permits, curfew, restricted to 5km travel zones for 4 permitted reasons, no visiting anyone.

to take it from 700 new cases per day to 0 took months. 

The American public won't stand for such measures.

In a just system Trump would take the bullet for the next administration. Rather than wait two months for Biden to implement draconian (and too late) measures the obvious solutions should be implemented today. That is what GW Bush did for Obama to ameliorate the economic collapse.

On a fishing tip with two other guys recently.  Each morning one of them would connect for the news, over a coffee.  He would then do the "hey listen to this ..." and we would have a chat about it.  The other guy was pretty quiet.

I traveled home with the quiet one who commented "Gee XXXXXx likes his morning news doesn't he!?"

It was just stating the obvious but later I realised that the Quiet one, who was Right WIng, did not read the multiple news sites in the morning.  He got his information from shock-jock radio and memes in his email.  This is the problem.

When a pharma company sells pain killers by saying they target back pain, when it is just the same shit they sell for head aches, in this country they get fined millions for misleading and deceptive conduct.  When shock-jocks spreads life threatening bullshit every day, nothing happens.

We all owe a great debt of gratitude, respect and major personal debt, to the black women in the south, who organized their asses off, and brought out the vote for Biden.  Most whites of all stripes and incomes voted for Trump. And many black men did also.  If not for these crusading black Daughters, Mothers and Grandmothers from the south, we would be looking at 4 more years of Trumps dysfunction, a horribly dangerous actions and programs, or lack of good ones....  We owe the BIGTIME!!

When a doctor gives a patient advice that harms them, and it was counter to the best medical information available at the time, the patient dies, the doctor could go to prison.

When shock-jocks tell nation that COVID-19 is bullshit, thousands believe that and die, nothing happens.

Free Speech should not include the right to broadcast information that is counter to the best science of the day ... for political or financial gain.

Those who have been engaged in COVID-19 and Climate Change Denial should be charged for Misleading and Deceptive Conduct.  For endangering the lives of individuals and the welfare of the ecosystems of the planet, for personal gain.

Pretty fucking easy really.

If you want to track how Trump got there, how half of the country are stupid fuckwits, look no further.

The country is caught between the rights of the individual and the welfare of the community.  Fuckwits are only interested in themselves, until someone waves a flag, then they genuflect and become flag-sucking patriots.

We got rid of cigarette ads. You guys may be too young to remember "Winston Tastes Good Like A Cigarette Should" but it was deemed as to damaging to the public good. I don't see why it shouldn't be possible to keep free speech and just take away the right to lie.

As for Twitter, Facebook, etc etc, they are private companies. Why are the Trumpalos suddenly wanting all kinds of intrusive gov't regulation? What are they, some kind of fucking commies??

Quote

Navy Flake, Navy cut, Navy tobacco is a Burley tobacco. In colonial times sailors twisted tobacco into a roll and "tied it tightly, often moistening the leaves with rum, molasses, or spice solutions." Stored in this way the flavors melded. To smoke it a slice was cut, known as a "twist" or "curly". Wikipedia

Has Trump and his lap dog / task force leader Pence basically abandoned the people of the USA as far as the pandemic during record case spikes?  Anyone that still supports this administration needs to think about this.  The Trump administration are unconcerned about the lives of the people of the United States beyond what money you might be able to send them to pay off their debts and enrich themselves and their family members.

President Trump's corruption is not surprising to me.  His proclivity for operating outside of norms and the law is well-documented.  His ability to sniff out suckers is amazing.

What IS surprising to me is the folks who see what he does and continue to support him.  I truly don't understand how his treatment of women can be tolerated.  If you are a woman, he has absolutely no respect for you and your bodily autonomy.  Your pussy can be grabbed by him, because he is a "star".  If you are not a woman, you have women in your life (mother, wife, sister, etc.). How is it okay with you that he feels entitled to sexually assaulting them?

His business practice of stiffing contractors, breaking deals, and leaving others with his debt is astounding.  Is that how you conduct business?

The list of his transgressions goes on and on.

What does he provide you that results in your support?  Outlawing abortion?  Activist judges being appointed?  Putting those black/brown people back in their "place"?

This man embodies hatred.  His supporters must find comfort in that hatred.  THAT, I truly do not understand. 

I can get that one man can be a damaged individual, that he suffers from a mental illness.  What we are seeing with his supporters is a shared psychosis they have opted into.

When Trump wanted to shutdown the epicentre of covid in the US the Granny Killer Cuomo said that would be illegal and he would fight it.

When Australia shut the borders to Victoria run by Dickhead Dan nobody disagreed with that despite it violating our constitution.

They say we should listen to the science what do the CDC say?

Are the CDC numbers similar to ours? https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/coronavirus-covid-19-current-situation-and-case-numbers#cases-and-deaths-by-age-and-sex

While I know this is a useless post as you have the inability to apply logic to anything "Trump", how about holding absolutely unnecessary super spreader events, even in states that had enacted rules against them?  Let's just add mocking people that use masks to help reduce the spread to others resulting in his followers to refuse to use masks in public.  Those are the easy, no thought required ones.  I am sure you will disagree though because for you and a slight minority of people in the USA, no one could have done a better job than Trump at handling the pandemic.

Interesting story. He's playing a Jose Ramirez guitar. One day back in the early 20th century old Jose was at work building guitars in his Madrid workshop when a teen aged boy walks in and is trying out guitars. Jose was so impressed with the kid's skill that went in the back and brought out the best guitar in the shop and gave it to the kid. It was either an act of generosity or a brilliant marketing move because the kid turned out to be Segovia.

Did "fast tracking" a vaccine  save any of the nearly 1/4 million American's who have died from this virus. ?

Trump and his admin would be on trial for manslaughter/willful negligence if in the private sector.

Do hospitals get to stand by and do nothing while waiting for a vaccine one wonders?

He didn't just slam that screen door on travel from where the virus erupted.  Her slammed it strongly.  Many people are saying it.  The best people.  Then, the virus hammered NY/NJ, after coming from Europe.

Regarding the PPE, he also treated states to a competition in bidding for supplies.  Then, the federal government outbid them.  And, told he his VP to give the cold shoulder to Governors who weren't "nice" to him.

The man fucked up damn near everything he did with regard to the virus.  Probably why he isn't doing a fucking thing about it, now.

During the first weeks of the covid-19 crisis in March, health officials panicked over an anticipated shortage of ventilators, breathing machines that were essential to help keep patients alive. But during the months it took for companies to develop their supply chains, test prototypes and train workers to build them, the approach to treating covid-19 changed.

Now, unexpectedly, the vast majority of ventilators are going unused. The Department of Health and Human Services said it had handed out 15,057 ventilators by Friday, and there were 95,713 ventilators in the federal stockpile. Of those, 94,352 came from contracts signed since the beginning of the pandemic.
