Several other states in the top 10 as well.  Someone should probably look into this COVID-19 thing.  It's looking kinda bad

America First!  Hell, individual states can beat the pants off other countries.  WOOT!

So. Much. Winning.
 
2020-07-08 11:52:49 AM  
But we need to reopen the schools for the fall!
 
2020-07-08 11:53:20 AM  
That's only because we're doing more testing.

/that's also why the hospitals are filling up

We wanted to lose the race to herd immunity against COVID-19, but Donny Two Scoops simply refused to let us lose. Thanks to his devotion and single-minded focus, we're winning the race. I sure hope I don't get tired of winning in the next few months!

I can't wait until Biden is elected and Covid will magically disappear.
 
2020-07-08 11:54:29 AM  
This is what happens when we don't even do the bare minimum, replacing any pro-active measures with half-hearted gestures and rhetoric.
 
2020-07-08 11:55:27 AM  
That's because we are a special kind of stupid, we think we are all rugged individualists.

They are ready to protest in Phoenix again on the news that the state might shut down. I have a friend who refuses to wear a mask because he 'thought he had it in early January.'
I'm doomed.

I doubt it'll go away that easily.

But it will be nice to have someone who'll take the threat more seriously.

You really think Biden will win?  Votes don't matter anymore.  The foundation is set for Trump to win by a landslide via Putin voting rules.

On the plus side, we're showing the world our rugged individualism.  Even if it kills us.

I wonder if this will finally convince countries around the world to completely cut us off from the rest of the planet.

It's just the flu!

It'll go away when it gets hot!

It's just because we're doing more testing!

great_tigers: I can't wait until Biden is elected and Covid will magically disappear.

Oh, fark off.  This is the same astrotrollfer crap that was demanding why Obama hadn't fixed the economy in three weeks after Dumbya crashed it to the worst unemployment since the Great Depression.

Biden is a old white jackass who spent his Senate career sucking off credit card companies.  He's going to be anything but a miracle, but FFS we're in this gorram mess because the Republicans can't even govern.  They can't fulfill even the most basic civic duties, and in fact openly antagonize any federal department that just goes about their job.

The whole point of electing Biden is to stop digging and actually go back to a functioning government that can do the simple things without crapping all over its own shoes.  That alone will be a massive improvement, but it won't be enough to stop a plague that's had a year-long head start.  So fark off with moving the goalposts ten miles into "miracle worker" territory after Trump's reaction to the U.S. approaching 200k deaths is "at least it's not a million".

The only problem with that is that Biden WON'T win the election.  I am absolutely convinced that Trump will get another four years because his intellectually and morally corrupt sycophants will do everything in their power to make it happen.  Either that, or his Russian buddies will do more of what they did in 2016.

In fact, I wouldn't be at all shocked if the hardcore Trump-farkers go all Sturmabteilung on people and threaten them into voting for him closer to Election Day.  The way they're behaving these days, it's absolutely within the realm of possibility.

It will be 117 in Phoenix on Sunday. Bet the cases will start trending down next week.

In 30 years, Republicans will start building statues of The Virus in parks and in front of courthouses. Maybe even name some inner-city schools after it.

AgtSmithReloaded: The only problem with that is that Biden WON'T win the election.

Nah, if you're seeing the trolls start to say crap like that, it's the surest sign yet of a Democratic victory.  Trump might throw a hissy fit, and his death cult will shriek like they always do, but the party leaders are already in an orderly retreat.

Not that that should make you feel better.  It's baked into the GOP strategy; when the propaganda machine starts falling behind their colossal blunders and naked corruption, go into smash-n'-grab mode while the media and astrotrollfers shift gears from demonizing the Democrats to setting absurdly unrealistic expectations about them.

Biden will win, kind of fuss around while putting out Trump's numerous fires for a couple years, and then expect a gridlocking red wave in 2022 because Americans are DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMBBBB.
 
2020-07-08 12:16:56 PM  
Well it's a hoax and it's the states fault and the Federal government can do nothing to help but don't you dare not open your schools in September or there will be hell to pay.

Not watch me cheat at golf.

Just sent an email to Ducey: At 3,300 new cases per million people this week, Arizona is number one in the world for new Covid-19 infections. You made a grave error listening to Trump during his visit to the mask factory. You chose loyalty to your political party over the people of the state for which you are responsible. For this error, we, the people, demand your immediate resignation.

Agree. I think Putin isn't yettired of so much winning.

Not to go all tinfoil hat, but I could see Putin arranging a terrorist attack to generate a rally-round-the-President response. Sept or more likely October. in California, to blame it on Mexican Immigrants and "weak Dem leadership".

To go even more tin foil, if it disrupted things enough to impact the election, they could drag California's certification of 55 electoral votes in to the courts. Then it becomes 241 to win.

I know, seems far fetched. But not entirely implausible.

Watching Dr Brix at the conference just now, it appears that a couples of weeks after Memorial Day weekend, when Florida opened up, cases resumed their exponential increase. Who could possibly have foreseen this?
