I'm trying to understand why that was important to them. I suppose I understand. I guess I just don't like it.

What do you mean exposed for being bullshiat?

That's like standing behind a bull while it's in the process of taking a shiat, pointing out that the substance coming out of its ass is bullshiat.  Yeah, we know.

Doing a 180 after the damage to their credibility has already been done.  Nice work. This is surely the way to save the most lives possible.

How can they be that bad at lying when they have so much practice doing it.

Not testing asymptomatic people who'd been exposed?

Because that increases official case count, a lot.

"When we were in a task-force meeting, the president said, 'Maybe this COVID thing is a good thing - I don't like shaking hands with people. I don't have to shake hands with these disgusting people,'"

I think of it like the piano student who absolutely sucks at it and has no intentions on improving but the teacher praises them anyways because they're getting paid. They've had never faced negative resistance...which penetrates the bubble echo chamber of derpitude at least

SCOTUS is their re-election message as of today. Covid, yeah, sure, wear a mask or whatever.

Cause they're constantly surrounded by fluffers whose paid job it is to constantly tell them how wonderful a job they're doing, and that includes lying.

It's all murder in the name of the dickweed not wanting to be seen as a "loser." They let tens of thousands die just because they don't vote for him. People everywhere, no matter who they vote for, and beginning to starve and get evicted. But it doesn't matter to them. Forced hysterectomies and the continuations of American eugenics that inspired the Nazis.
And unfortunately there will be more death and bloodshed because very few people have changed or learned anything. So many say they wish things would get back to normal. Sorry, there's no going back anymore. Its change or else suffer all the same shiat again and again. another pandemic, another corrupt dictator, another age of the rich pissing on everyone.

I read that as "asymptotic" and was totally confused by the headline.

Trump: 'I said to my people, slow the testing down, please'

Dear Leader is always right. Reality must conform to his vision. See also the Nazis rejection of "Jewish Science" that helped lead to the failure of the German nuclear program in WW2.

Hey guys, Canadian here. I can actually say "Trump is not wrong." I know that is hard to accept, given his history, lying and incomprehensible speech.
In Alberta here, we offered testing to anyone, even with no symptoms. They found COVID in 7 per 10,000 tests for those that were asymptomatic. Basically, that means there isn't much point. If you have a cough or runny nose, sure get tested.
We recently stopped recommending asymptomatic testing. Here is a news article:

That's it CDC, you're on the list now.
