That's terrible subby. But I snorted.

But...subby is mentioning them in a headline...

Ya know, considering the way the Gov was messing with counting and such, I really don't trust those numbers.  I want to also see the number of excess deaths.  That number that shows how many more people died than in previous years.

I think Florida's a bottomless well of Fark headlines. A swampy alligator infested well (and the gators are on meth).

What a cringy headline. I like dumb Floridians as much as the next  farker, but this made me feel sorry for Florida Man. This is an unexpected emotion.

Yup, the real number is likely twice that...or higher.

In all my years of farking, that is the coldest, and yet most apt headline I've ever seen.  Well done.

They all collectively became a Fark headline. Let us honor them.

Thank you for being a *cough cough* *wheeze* *ACK* *whump*

Not yet, but they will catch up

Yea, but there are many more Trump supporters out there to entertain us with their stupidity.

It's a group memorial. Much more efficient this way. Kinda like mass graves.

They are not doing that bad compared to other states.


I'm sure the dead people feel ever so much better knowing that.

Thanks you gods damned orange bastard.

There's revenge coming for this and oh how you'll deserve it. A billion centuries in Hell for every lost life.

Keep in mind that a number of the states on that list hit their bad spikes already, because they were among the early states to get hit.  Rhode Island, for instance, which is also a densely populated state (along with many NE states).  Florida, and several others, are still going, and their numbers are gonna get way worse.

How close was Trump's 2016 victory in Florida?

Got to assume most of these were people who believed COVID is a liberal hoax, so could he kill enough of his own supporters to flip the election?

I mean, doesn't matter, because DeSantis would just lie about the results if Trump lost the state, but would still be sort of ironic.

Really sad thing is hearing how many people are still going to vote for him.  Like in numbers large enough for him to be reelected.  He shouldn't get even a million votes, but knowing that at least 30% of voters are backing him is obscene.

Does this mean we can now submit this thread with the ironic tab?

Seems they are going back down. I agree the states that first got it took the worst hit. I also worry that they are out of immunity now since their cases started months ago. It seems their deaths were largly preventable, silly not to have a mask law.

Even using the rather tame metric of per 100,000 deaths, Florida has a couple thousand more deaths than Canada and about two thirds of its population.

One state has more people than Canada (California, 39 million versus a bit over 38 million), but it has over 12,000 deaths to a bit over 9,100 today.

Canada and Texas were briefly tied at 9,004.

It is hazardous to make patriotic excuses for your country, state, province or territory because one of the deplorables you are defending might be Donald Jerky Jerk McJerk Face Trump.

Trump doesn't have to die now, but he must go ASAP because he is FUBAR and SNAFU and more Maggot than Magus.

I'm just saying. I feel your pain. Cousins may not count past third cousin, but in very large amounts, say, the millions, they add up to a brother or sister or at least a grandparent or first cousin.

Everything counts in large amounts. The grabbing Hanz grab all they can. Trump out.

On the plus side, the USA is now about number six on new cases (or deaths, I would need to take a second to look instead of typing this long explanation) so the country seems to be going all AVIS and trying harder.

Without Trump, Trumpers and almost all Republican politicians, of course.

Someday, perhaps after the 2020 Defection, every Republican will be a RINO.

Lord, how long? How long Oh Lord?

Here's the list that ranks states and provinces together for anybody who still cares:

Even Canada sucks if compared to such early adopters of fact-based policies as New Zealand, but it's not a Bad Egg altogether.

Curate:  On the contrary, my Lord, bits of it are excellent.

We are number two in the usual two horse race.

We really have to stop sounding so smug about that, even while acknowledging the facts and more facts and then yet more facts.
