No, dumbf*ck.

You didn't.   It's getting worse.

2 weeks ago that might have meant something. But today, it's bald faced lies. Absolute undiluted horse shiat.

Who the fark do you think you're kidding?

I don't mean to be pedantic... but this _is_ fark... so I'd say that it's a pretty calculable loss.  I'd calculate it to be near 100,000 judging by what I can see.

"Saved" as in the past tense...

They are lying and if you stand next to that statement you are either complicit or a willing tool.

Of course he did.

The GOP has learned that nothing they say and nothing they do has any consequence on them, so they say and do what they want.

The reason they're still doing it now is they know they'll win the election.

You can laugh...but they count the vote.

I suppose vertical is a variety of flat if you rotate it 90 degrees.

So flattened. Much saving.

"We slowed the spread. We flattened the curve. We saved lives," Pence said.

Maybe we did do this with emphasis on the past tense.  However, not no more. We are in the process of doing exactly what the experts have feared, creating a roller coaster effect rather than a flattening of the curve followed by steady or slowly decreasing numbers.

Similar to the police, evangelicals are allowed to lie when fulfilling their public duties.

It's in the Constitution people.
 
2020-06-26 10:32:06 PM  
Yes, but flattening the curve was only the first step, the one to buy time. Some other countries used that time to put policies and procedures in place to keep the infection rate down long-term. You didn't. Now we will see the results.

Mike puts "thou shalt not bear false witness" in the same basket as all that bullshiat in Deuteronomy about not eating shellfish.

God didn't really mean that!

We never flattened the curve, and it doesn't matter.

They know that it doesn't matter.

Do you think this is a group of people acting like they might lose an election over this?

Past tense is a biatch

That curve is flat. The problem is it is flat at the top. Like a plateau.

No it's not. There's a giant spike at the end of the curve.

About 100,000,000 Americans?

It's almost like that time he screwed up dealing with HIV and the rate of infection in his home state skyrocketed.
 
2020-06-26 11:01:13 PM  
Technically he did use past tense.

The rates were slowed and the curve was flattened, until Republicans got upset it was hurting Trumps approval rating so went out demanding to get sick.

my state, indiana, is doing well. like other countries.

for better or worse, we have 50 different "countries" making their own policies

No it's not.

You're just lying about it.
 
2020-06-26 11:39:58 PM  
You were SUPPOSED to put in place a system of regular testing and contact tracing. But that didn't happen, did it? So, this economic recess was waisted; because you thought it was just going to blow over.

The piper will be paid.
 
2020-06-26 11:45:47 PM  
How often did he recommend masks?  0 times, despite being tossed softball questions.

How often did he recommend "prayers and hopes"?  Three times.

This is an idiot whose highest qualification was being an Indiana version of Shawn Hannity.

I find it incredible that just a few days ago I was wondering if we would surpass 40k in a single day.  Now I am terrified at how high that number will go and idiots will blissfully go about their day as if none of this is happening.

"We slowed the spread. We flattened the curve. We saved lives," Pence said.

It's true.  He's just not talking about America -- he's talking about the White House.  They had a scare with some staffers, they started testing all over the place, tracing contacts, isolating potential cases, sanitizing shiat to hell and back, and they protected their own asses.

The rest of y'all can fark off and get back to working until you die.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: We never flattened the curve, and it doesn't matter.

Bullshiat gaslighting.
 
2020-06-27 12:44:23 AM  
No, asshole. You kicked the can down the road and did nothing to help in the interim. Masks was never supposed to be the main prevention. They were supposed to buy us time while we focused our efforts on PPE and testing.

God, it it so humiliating how idiotic and incapable our leaders are.
 
2020-06-27 1:53:18 AM  
You sh*tbags need to show a little respect for the Vice Precident of the United States of Amercia.  Pence DID save lives.  He told people to consider using masks, maybe not go out so much in public, and pray for our Nation.  That's a LOT more than any of you f*ckers did.
 
2020-06-27 2:54:16 AM  

Znuh: It's almost like that time he screwed up dealing with HIV and the rate of infection in his home state skyrocketed.


He's running the same playbook he did back then. Pray, followed by nothing.

kkinnison: Praying doesn't make it true, Pence


Not that I believe in wanting a person to get hurt, but with as little as Pence has done to protect himself from the virus, I'd love to see him try to 'pray it away' if he ends up contracting it.  Viruses don't work like that.

At his age, though, one wonders if he'd survive it.
