ACSH is an industry-funded lobby group that argues against government regulations. Their purpose for existing is to find and promote the "scientific" or "rational" arguments -- generally by cherry-picking outliers that oppose the scientifically consensus -- to give politicians cover when arguing for unsafe food additives, increased pollution, or worsening public health.

It's not really surprising that they'd run an editorial that criticises people for mourning the dead because they need to shut up, accept death and get back into our meatpacking factories before the next quarterly report comes out.

When I went through SERE training, the country where we"crashed, had to evade, and spent several days in their prison camp was called, "The People's Democratic Republic."

FARK without pandemic porn? Good luck with that.

From TFA, 9/11 united us as a country. The coronavirus divided us further. That is very telling.

Yeah, and we were united long enough for the politicians to really do a number on us.  The media got smacked around pretty hard as well, and went into retreat.  The generations that came of age in the last 20 years are a whole lot savvier about media manipulation and more cynical as well.  What they don't have is critical thinking skills.

I though it was going to be about that American Experience examining the Spanish Flu.
That or Contagion.

The WH/CDC/Government should have been flooding us with reliable information from the beginning. By not doing that, by supressing information, by giving out bad information, by constantly changing the message, by  having zero unified message or plan to begin with, the Administration poisoned their own well.

Again, Trump could have hit a home run with an easy swing and locked up reelection but no, you had to be Donald Trump.

I don't know whether this was 'shopped or not, but a couple of weeks ago I saw a screencap of a purported PornHub vid titled "A Walk Through a Fully Stocked Grocery Store."  Now that's pandemic porn I can fap to.

The thread on the Wisconsin dive bar that's in trouble for a stripper show while showing graphic pron on weekends is closed to new comments.  Please forgive the public service follow-up in this space.  Drove by there earlier this afternoon.   Neighborhood traffic was steady.  Here is Bennett's Meadowood Country Club.  You can see it is pretty much sunken from view to the two major thoroughfares (straight out from the Old Style sign is Hwy 151 and the telephone pole near the roofline sits on Raymond Road) which serves its relative anonymity well as cars pass by at high speeds.  Conversely, there is a traffic light right there which leaves the premises in its collective all-together during stoppage time.

I am duty bound to report that all writing has taken place at an undisclosed location unaffiliated with the business.  This submission is for context only!
