What a bad May may look like.
 
2020-04-25 4:38:27 AM  
New Orleans learned a real hard lesson about large social gatherings back in late February, when the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the entire United States was fifteen.

Today, its around nine hundred thousand - about four and a half orders of magnitude higher, and with countless undetected cases that could easily exceed that number.

Having a mass gathering of non-distanced people now is profoundly ill advised.

...protesters cheered "USA" and circulated petitions to recall Evers. Protesters also reportedly held signs reading "All Workers, Are Essential" and "Death.... is preferable to communism."

Ah, "Better Dead Than Red". The classics never die.

Welp, death it is, then, and freely chosen! Enjoy, you stinking plague rats.

Passing around petitions was a nice touch.

"We've arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces."

This is why I do not understand the 'good let them die' crowd. Yes, they are covidiots, but they are not lemmings running off a cliff to their own demise...

They are people who remain in the herd. In your neighborhood, in your grocery stores, and in your general area. Keeping the virus active and getting many innocent people killed.
 
2020-04-25 5:55:49 AM  
It's ok you guys, keep overreacting.
The searing heat of April is almost upon us and that's going to kill the virus and bacterials and the flu and stuff.
It's like a miracle you'll see.

Now, let's finish drinking our bleach.

The joys of being a swing state never fail to make me wish I lived in team DERP or team Blue territory. Because the stupid would only happen during September to November every 2 years, not every freaking week.

Idea: any proof of super pac funding means you get an immediate visit by a swat team, with a license to kill. Because this is just terrorism, and using idiots as your human shield.

Can we all just stop breathlessly announcing some dire prediction about what's going to happen next month? The only ones who have any kind of clue have been studying epidemiology for years and even they're struggling to learn about this new virus.

We both wish they would listen to reason, but they have perversely refused, again and again, in the face of overwhelming evidence.

Therefore, all we can do is take some small comfort in the fact that they are literally killing themselves, and - being farking dead - can no longer harm any more innocents.

This is why they should have pulled the first group to do this into a month-long involuntary quarantine.  Now there are (temporarily) too many of them.

But that is my point... that is not what is going to happen.

Roughly half of them will get it. About 2% of them will die from it. They will spread it to a bunch of people who do not deserve it.

Cheer for bleach injections if that is what helps you through this.

The infectiousness and transmission vectors of the virus are well-known.

That knowledge, plus some basic math, clearly indicate that shiat is going to suck hard for them, and real soon.

Perhaps the virus will suffer some kind of viral midlife crisis, get depressed, stop infecting people, buy a tiny viral sports car on tiny viral credit, and spend its days driving around, banging barely-legal virolitas, and painting arty and sexually-suggestive pictures of exotic mushrooms.

Probably not, though.

Fair point. But bleach injections should be your horse not these protests. These protests will kill more non-protesters than protesters is my point.

Cell phone tower data.  Probably not going to fly unless all hell brakes loose in Wisconsin but there are technological ways to track the crowd and where they go at least until the serious protesters just stopped taking their phones with them.  Heck it could just be saved right now for future use.

Perhaps those owners should lead by example, and show up to their businesses each day. If their workers are putting in twelve-hour shifts, surely the Lords Of Capitalism can saunter in for a few hours now and then, without a mask or any other PPE, to inspire the workers with their bravery.

God, what well-trained slaves they are, and all the while thinking themselves brave patriots.

It doesn't make me happy to see Republicans engaging in self-destructive behavior, it makes me sad.

They should spend some time reflecting on their attitude towards the Civil Rights, Occupy Wallstreet, Black Lives Matter, and what I'll call Antifi movements based on people gathering.

The people in those movements knew their well-being might be at risk from the Police or Republican militias. Real harm, not like the Republican common sense brigade face from the "COVID" as they call it. People died violently. But if you are run down by a Nazi's car there is no widespread harm to all of us, you're just dead, not a disease spreader.

The irony is not lost on me that once again Republicans are responsible for the civil harm from these gatherings.

At least there isn't a large counter-protest movement, that I can see. It does make me happy that my team isn't full on moron as well.
