CthulhuCalling: Bot v2.38beta: "How many beers have you had tonight?"

"3. After an hour I stopped counting officer."

Those are rookie numbers.


Don't worry, just under reporting as per the usual defense.

He just keeps repeating the same nonsense over and over again to the point where it just becomes tiring to correct him. Yes, it is true that we may have more confirmed cases because we test more.  We also have more cases by shear number because, in part, we have a larger population than most countries. However, the cases exist whether or not we test and we have more cases, confirmed and unconfirmed, because of the poor job being done to limit the pandemic.

Three Crooked Squirrels: Badmoodman: "If we tested less, there would be less cases."


Fewer, Fuhrer.

And not only that, Fuhrer. There be the same amount of cases, they'd just be under counted, Impeached President Dotard.


There would be more cases because people that would've tested positive and gone into isolation would instead be out and about spreading the virus.

Holfax: "Crime rate is up 20%"
"Must be all those new 911 operators we hired"


And yet Trump opposes those who want to defund the police. Using Trump-math, defunding the police is the solution to law and order he's been looking for all this time!

Well, he's right. I haven't had a pregnancy test, and haven't gotten pregnant yet. I think I might wanna get a blood test, though, since I'm all out of blood.

My dumbass family in Missouri drove down to Florida yesterday for a vacation. My cousin has an 18 year old kid, and she today is posting shiat about voting. Like would you send your winning Powerball ticket in the mail, no you wouldn't, and the same goes with voting by mail or some shiat like that. Powerball involves money, you cannot just send it in the mail and expect free money. My other cousin is a surgical nurse, and went too. Meanwhile I am avoiding people so my mom and grandmother doesn't get it. I have no idea why people are still travelling when people are farking dying, or ending up with damaged bodies from this.

Wait, you're talking about an adult who can't figure out the key difference between cash and a ballot? Or are they just saying stupid shiat to troll the libs?

Chuck87: A lot of you guys are bashing Trump but can you prove him wrong?


Actually it's super easy, barely an inconvenience. It's called the "positive test rate". If excessive testing really explained the increase, the percentage of tests that came back positive would drop because we'd be testing up more and more negative cases. But percent positive cases has gone up, meaning that we are not even keeping up with the increasing case load.

The USA wishes it had flare ups because that would imply that the pandemic had been brought under some sort of control in the first place.

That was easy.


No.  I'm talking about the issue of testing.  If the U.S. tests way more than other countries, then the U.S. is likely to show more cases.

KiwDaWabbit: SoupGuru: We elected the stupidest person we could find to lead our country. We elected the government we deserve, I guess.

I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty much in a state of mourning when Trump won. But if we have 90-100 million eligible voters choose to sit this out again, I'm gonna feel a lot more like we get what we get. I'm going to vote. F*ck anyone who doesn't.


I'd say the US is at the point where more is required. Voting alone is not enough. You need to get out there and convince others to vote

Anyone who is not actively out there sacrificing their time and money to protest, to campaign, to fight, or otherwise support the fight against fascism, in other words to be an actual agent of change, is complicit.

Lowering testing rates doesn reduce cases, it simply reduces testing accuracy.  You still have just as many infected.  The point he's making is moronic at best.

I think maybe I get it.

Bearing in mind, 45 is a very stupid man, who presumably believes the U.S. is inherently best at everything.

Maybe he thinks that in reality, the rates of coronavirus infection are actually the same everywhere in the world.  So he figures every country really has about the same number of people infected, and he doesn't even consider the measures other countries have taken that addressed the threat more effectively than the U.S.

Therefore, the only reason the U.S. total infected looks worse is because of testing finding those cases.  If every other country tested more, of course they would also find more cases.  So when he talks about other countries that can send their kids back to schools, he doesn't even understand that their conditions are different.

I guess.  I can't make sense of his spew any other way, and now I've spent more time thinking about it than he deserves.

2020-08-02 9:43:12 AM  
I'm not sure what to do with this talking point.  Like... I know it's there to make Trump look less dumb.  And the entire underpinning of the point is completely wrong.

But he seems to believe that more tests are a good thing, despite them making him look bad.

If this gets played wrong, he ends up doing everything he can to suppress test results, or worse, limit access to testing supplies.  Obviously, this makes him look even worse, but it "solves the problem".  And we've seen that this is exactly how Trump thinks about the world, over and over again.

So we got him to buckle and wave a mask around on the teevee.  WIN!

Anything we can do to make sure he doesn't screw the pooch on testing for all the wrong reasons?

I like it. He's convinced that his is the only correct response to the crisis, and can't understand why anybody else has a problem with it. It must be working in other countries so obviously it's not his fault.

Both maybe? I mean she graduated from a town with 700 people. Her dad is a very conservative firefigthter/EMT. Her dad also cheated my cousin a bunch of times, even while she was pregnant. So, she left him.
