All these folks worried about their freedumbs and being sheep. Trump should start a rumor that black people are spreading the virus and whites are disproportionately affected, you'd see them all mask up immediately.

We're so f*cked

/had someone today tell me it was a "fake virus"

But our testing is so great that we slowed it down because we are so great and nobody tests as much as we do, and we felt sorry for everyone else and then the tests looked at me.

How odd that a dozen red states would be the bottom dwellers. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

Cases continue to go down in Illinois. And I see a daily proliferation of "Pritzker Sucks" yard signs. Apparently people don't appreciate breathing as much you might think.

The ever more hysterical ranting from the right wing "It's just increased testing!" "The death rate is ackshyually going down!" "People who get hit by a bus have COVID listed on their death certificate." "It only affects old people" as they try to distract from that ever growing pile of dead bodies is almost funny in a way. Cases keep going up up up, deaths keep piling up, but they're going to mine the data until they think they can statsplain the deaths away. Oh, and definitely don't pay attention to all the folks in the "recovered" category that months later after "recovering" can't walk to pick up the post without getting out of breath. Definitely don't pay any attention to that.

Remind me, are we talking about the Branch Dildonians that stormed capital buildings with guns and anger to open shiat up, or the BLM masses that protested with facemasks? Or the 6000 losers in Tulsa that breathed the same air as Trump for 2 hours?

There's plenty of blame to go around, most of it being stupidity. There's stupidity on both sides, only your side is proud of it though.

Explain why we're opening everything now that everything is worse than when we closed things in the first place. Someone just give me an answer for that, even if it's bullshiat.

You mean the red states with the lowest number of educated people, opened too early and didn't fully understand or ignored the consequences?

This is going to cripple the U.S. economically. Carlos Q had a great image he posted to show how bad this going despite "the great but not really great" jobs reports.

Yep. I see loads of those around here. I don't know what they think the alternative is. Pritzker was never my top choice for governor but he's handled this very sensibly.

This is one of the things people should be railing against Facebook for encouraging. Sponsors should be pulling their ads not just for terrorist acts, but for spreading disease and death.

Indeed, that makes sense that all the incredibly rapid increases in reported cases are from only those states where protests happened in....(checks notes).... Florida, Arizona and Texas.

I like how the states with the highest death and infection rates still manage to get a pass in favor of scapegoating the other states that are at mere fractions of those rates.

...which have shown no correlation to cases going up.  Opening businesses up early and no having mask requirements?  That's what's farked us.

Which would suggest the "They're killing grandma" outrage aimed at reopen protesters was very misguided.

Blue states were first and got rocked because of highest population density.

The red states had something that blue states did not......more time. More time to prepare, more time to get PPE, more time to be on top of it. It was bad how much we squandered as a nation, but the red states were even dumber for wasting more valuable time, when they had a lens into what was going to happen.

And they did even less.

They also got prematurely locked down, which meant that any future measures will be fought hard.

Most of the country should not have locked down when and how they just because the Northeast was getting hit.

I think that part of the problem with the ignorance in this country is you can't see the pandemic.  People walk out their front doors and everything appears normal.  If only there was a way to show people what's going on inside of hospitals.

Also, they will ignore that all the businesses that were "allowed" to be open weren't making any f$cking money anyways so the probably should have helped they financially to keep their businesses closed.  In they end they will have paid a ransom of lives and will have been no further ahead when it comes to the economy.

Canada's unemployment also went up 8 points but we have a third the number of new cases in Canada as you have in Dallas today.
