Yeah..but they'll have HAND SANITIZER. Everyone will surely be safe now.

You know, many people had never heard of hand sanitizer until trump made it famous. Now generals come up to him and say, 'Sir, thank you for bringing us hand sanitizer. You've saved the armed services. Even Space Force.'

90 degrees Fahrenheit and a 60% chance of rain? This seems fine.

Big Navy town, right?

I toured the Albacore there. During the tour we got to look through the periscope and I was looking at the highway going MARK! FIRE ONE! FIRE TWO! while leading the cars. It had some really nice clear optics.

Cool sub.

So after his death run flyby is he only going to do rallies at military installations/towns from here on out?
 
2020-07-05 11:43:22 PM  
He should do a motorcade somewhere.  Texas perhaps.

I guarantee the rally isn't outdoors because of safety precautions.  It's so there's not a half-empty venue again.

I wouldn't go that far. If they was learnin' they wouldn't be there at all. NH probably told him to stay away and didn't give him a hanger hoping he would not come but to no avail.

I grew up in the very far northeast corner of Vermont, right on the Canada and NH borders.  I'm not going to say that Vermont doesn't have its problems, but man, you cross that border and everyone is immediately pants-on-head compared to Vermonters.  In Vermont it was all, "Taxes are a good thing because we can pay for things together and it's cheaper and it helps people," and in New Hampshire it was, "I literally don't care what horrors you visit upon me and my family as long as I don't have to pay taxes."  And it seeped its way through everything they did.  They're still a ton more socially liberal than much of the rest of the US (and to their credit, the people did shut down a gay-marriage ban, though on libertarian "the government can't tell US what to do" grounds), but I was always stunned by what a sharp contrast in philosophy I encountered just by crossing a river, from socialism/collectivism to libertarianism/assholism.

Outdoor events are somewhat safe if the people attending are responsible.

Why would Melania care if Donny was having trouble performing? She's too busy not sleeping with Donny....

That's awfully considerate of you. You definitely wouldn't be getting those tickets to artificially inflate the number of people who are expected to attend. Nobody would do such a mean thing....

Not at all.  I really, really want them there.  It's already in the plan that if certain houses on my street go on sale, I'm grabbing 'em.  I want to rebuild the 5 acre empire that my house had in 1885 before they started splitting it off and building other houses.

Another Trump rally? Excellent. I'm looking forward to it. The last two have provided so much material.

Tell them to plan for 19000. Just enough to fill a sports arena in a moderately sized city.

He's good with that crowd size

Seriously. The number of people I saw hanging around in large groups, without a mask to be seen, was farking depressing. And this was in Connecticut, one of two states that was actually doing a pretty damn good job handing COVID recently.

He will just call the rain off. If turn out is low he will blame the fake weather reports.

Fox News will report on the beautiful clear skies regardless of where they have to go to tape them.

Most people of us wear masks. There are definitely people here who still refuse though and it is rather frustrating. As the saying goes - Further north you go, further south you get.

It's amazing how protest/riots with thousands of people shoulder to shoulder does not spread C19.  But a rally is a superspreader event.

It varies really. In Dover most folks are making the effort, but just north in Somersworth and Rochester it's like Alabama. I've even seen Confederate flags occasionally. Plus, those Gadsden flags are really just placeholders for the confeds.

All in all, it seems like it's 50/50 here. Plenty of plague rats, but they are surrounded by reasonable people.

I lived in Somersworth in the early to mid 1970s.  This makes me sad.

My wife and I kind of purposely moved to a blue collar town, which means plenty of Trump supporters.  She has said that people at the grocery store are mostly Doing the Thing, maybe just a couple of people with no masks every time she goes to the store.  I haven't been since before they put arrows in the aisles and markers for 6' distance at the checkouts.  The last day I went there were many Mask-Wearing People, and then some Gun Wearing People who didn't have masks.  I hadn't seen that before in Shaw's.  I guess some people /really/ want to protect that cart full of Top Ramen and Ore-Ida fries they're stockpiling.

There was a local BLM demonstration and everyone there was masked up and mostly gave each other plenty of space.  A few knuckleheads showed up with assault rifles, but it was kind of hard to tell their deal.  They seemed generally on the side of the BLM folks, but really guys, kind of...not...helping?  On the plus side, pretty much everyone who passed by honked and showed support.  I saw some of my neighbors pass by.  They did not show any support and mainly just looked annoyed.

We have also been going for a vigorous 30-60 minute walk at lunchtime every day.  We don't have masks on at all times since we can generally maintain > 10 feet distance from anyone else, but we've got them in our pockets in case we bump into someone or have to pop in somewhere.  That hasn't come up yet, but they're there.

We also have friends who've gone to the flea market and said there was maybe like 30 - 40% people with masks.  I'll not be going to the flea market.  Mainly because a $4 box-set of DVDs isn't worth choking to death on a ventilator, and largely because the flea market is a massive Trump hotbed.

So yeah, YMMV.

Wearing a mask is literally the least you can do to help protect your fellow humans, so clearly the Real Muricans are never going to do anything for anyone but themselves.  Color me shocked.

I was just listening to Coast to Coast AM. George Noory has on an expert, giving the daily COVID stats. He started out saying the explosion of cases was directly due to the protesters. He then went on a tangent saying that since 50% of the cases are non fatal, then that means this pandemic is easily treatable, and therefore we should allow the use of alternative medicines.

Oh, how that misguided clown twisted in the wind!. It was like he was begrudgingly acknowledging that the virus was real. Noory's next guest, started off talking about the "violet extremism" black lives matter members represent.

Jesus Christ. I haven't listened to Coast to Coast in a grip. Used to love silly old Art bell, because even tho he was a little "off," he never encouraged extremism. But George Noory? That asshole is bought and sold. How dare he let folks like these two clowns spout such incredible bullshiat?

I try to catch the show on Saturdays, when I know Ian Punnett is on, but I believe I'm done with C2C for good. i.mean Noory has drank the Kool-Aid. He's of Lebanese origin, aiding and abetting white supremacists. What the hell is the matter with minorities who think that white supremacists won't suddenly turn on them too? They know you're an uncle Tom, George. Stop acting like this shiat isn't eventually gonna bite you in the ass.

fragMasterFlash: How are those South Dakota infection rates coming along? Too Soon?


Incubation:  2-14 days, means between 3-6 days.  

Hospitalization:  Roughly 7 days after onset.  

Time to death varies greatly.

So, hospitalizations would spike in mid-July in SD if there was a lot of spreading.
