More like stupid rednecks.

So what?  If the South socially distanced, wore masks, washed their hands, and had doctors on the lookout, this wouldn't be as much of a problem.

Again this administration seems to be unaware that we have access to reality.

It was obviously those Northerners spreading disease in the remarkably clean convalescent homes, prisons, and meat-packing plants that the South is famous for

I refuse to dehumanize plague-carrying idiots.

The poor rats didn't have a choice.  These idiots do.

I mean, I always seek out abattoirs when I'm on vacation, doesn't everyone?

This is just a repeat of the "but.... China started it!" argument that people like to bring up for some reason. As if that somehow excuses their incompetence/unpreparedness.

Yeah. Everyone from the northeast is just dying to vacation in Pigfart, West Virginia.

Being "not the South" was the entire point of West Virginia.

That's the point the states that reopened early had a large influx of visitors from closed states, this caused more people to catch it and probably raised the numbers in those closed states because they went home. So it's the same thing fauci is saying reopening caused a large outbreak. CDC is just saying it the dumbest way possible.

I have an idea, lets see if we can drive the wedge, deeper and harder.

What harm could it do, right?

farking idiots.

We deserve this shiat.

What a time to be a black protestor, right? If you play your cards right, all the white people will die from this and you wont. What a time to be alive!

The cause is Southern governors opening their states up to northern plague rats.  Everyone with half a brain knew that was a bad idea.

The South's COVID Rates Shall Rise Again!
 
2020-07-15 2:49:34 PM  
I live in a beach town.  Just yesterday at the gas station some guy was screaming at the cashier about how "we already beat this in new york, I'm not wearing a mask because you rednecks didn't when you should have."

I'm not sure if he saw why that was a ridiculous statement.

Mostly what I'm getting at is there are dipshiats everywhere.

We had some overlapping events in Mississippi recently:

Scrapin' the Coast - an event that celebrates low-riders and extremely lifted trucks (No restrictions beyond what was in place)
Protests for Black Lives Matter - self-explanatory (No restrictions at all really)
Beaches reopened with restrictions on number of people in close proximity, masks, and patrols to remind everyone that Covid is still a thing

Guess which of these (if any) were blamed for the recent spike in cases.  I'll save you the time and tell you that the only thing mentioned as a possible cause was the beaches re-opening.

They do have the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.  You want to see a lot of sun-burned snowbirds, look there.

The timeline doesn't work.  Memorial Day was six weeks ago.  The COVID-19 incubation time is closer to 6 days.  How could exposure from northerners six weeks ago cause a spike in cases now?

So asymptomatic spreaders are real, and areas that don't do social distancing or insist on wearing masks are getting right and properly farked?

When I moved from Ohio to Texas, I found that I could not be naturalized as a Texan. Now I am told I am a damn Yankee. A God Damn Yankee is one that moves south and marries a southern woman and takes a southerner's job, I am told.

But since this from the daily mail, I'm now wondering if the CDC ever stopped malaria from ravaging the US.

A classic car show called Cruisin' the Coast brought 1,000s of people to Biloxi a few years back and now we have Scrapin' and Jeepin' the Coast to add to the problems.

Belmont County in Ohio (small county in SE Ohio) had an infection rate of 0 not that long ago. Then 100 kids went to Myrtle Beach and so far 25 brought the Confederate Flu back with them

And here in Pittsburgh (where we were doing great for awhile) cases are skyrocketing and they blamed the initial influx on people going to Florida and the Carolinas (among other places) for vacation

My coworker was going on about how the numbers in the local area was rising due to New York sending all their elderly patients that tested positive for COVID down to our area.... we are like 8 hours away from NY.  I wish people would stop burying their heads in the sand.  That area is huge on no mask wearing so I wonder why they spiked.  This was all a few months ago when NY was hit hard.

Come on everybody, I say now let's play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme out of anybody's blame
The first letter of the blame
I treat it like it wasn't there
But a "B" or an "F" or an "M" will appear
And then I say "Bo" add a "B" then I say the blame
Then "Boo-york-fanna" and "fo"
And then I say the blame again with an ""f" very plain
Then "fee fi" and a "mo"
And then I say the blame again with an "M" this time
And there isn't any blame that I can't rhyme
Hunan!  Hunan, bo-boo-nan! 
Bo-na-na, fanna fo-fu-nan!
Fee fi m-ma-man. Bunan!

You cousins dead brother
You maskless hicks in the sticks
Sardine-packed urban mothers
You're making everybody sick
Pricks!

So all you diseased MFers
can't y'all see
with a little bit of blame
It's everyone's fault but me

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Yet the Midwest was hit by partiers going to Florida.


I think maybe the initial cases of the 'rona did migrate south from the north. However, the worm has definitely turned in that regard the last month or so

Been saying it since it got started here in South Florida.

The snowbirds never went back. They brought family members down to escape NY/NJ. There are more NY/NJ plates on cars, like 10x more, in June and July than I've ever seen. I've lived here 25 years.

Good news is, they are loading up their cars on car haulers and heading back up North. See 3-4 haulers a day now.

Enjoy your respike.
