    YES!!!!! 😎!


    I suspect the idjits are going out of their little pea brained minds. Michigan is flipping, Georgia going to re-count, North Carolina flipped for Trump. Pennsylvania looks like it is going to be investigated by the feds.
    OMG '06, they don't have brains or hearts.
    They just have overactive gizzards!!! LMBO!!!!

    • COVID-19 infections have fallen by 30% during England's month-long national lockdown and the virus is now in retreat, a large-scale study of more than 100,000 volunteers showed on Monday.

      https://news.yahoo.com/englands-covi...000925233.html

      Levels of infection fell 30%, with 96 people per 10,000 infected between Nov. 13 and Nov. 24, according to interim results of the study by Imperial College London and Ipsos MORI.

      The last iteration of the research, carried out between Oct. 16 and Nov. 2, showed 130 infections per 10,000 people.

      "The findings show cases were rising as the country entered lockdown, but this was followed by a decrease as national measures successfully lowered infection rates across the country," a statement issued by the health department said.

      • All the EU has been trending down for a couple weeks. New infections are lower than the US. Statistics have been hard to follow here with the holidays. Half the states didn't report anything on Thanksgiving. I'd think overworked staff is trying to find time to spend with family and sending in counts is not the top of the priority list. This week should indicate if infections are really headed down or if this was just reduced reporting from the holidays.

        • We were warned that reduced testing during the holidays would result in fewer positives being reported, and not to read anything good into that.

          • An ER doc who worked Friday in Rhode Island said she admitted every single patient she examined. As a room opened, there were two patients to put in it. Lots of kids driving their parents in, but of course the kids couldn't come in, she really wanted to tell the kids to say goodby to their parents, because it might be the last time they see them.

            Every bed full, every ER bed full, waiting room full, today they are to get a field hospital for the parking lot. Once every minute a hospital worker is calling a family to say someone has died.

            And the worst is it doesn't have to be this way. GDP would suffer, and Trump doesn't want to admit that it's that bad, and the very powerful people in both parties don't want to lose the money.

            Some say bad things about socialism, it's the bogey man, Chavez and what not, and I have to agree with a lot of it, but capitalism has it's downsides too, and America is a prime example of capitalism gone amuck, our streets full of feces from the homeless, millions more set to be evicted now that it's December, and we do nothing to curtail the covid 19 for fear of quarterly profits.

            • Rock, you pretty much talk out both sides of your mouth ! The dimwits have said nothing else except BS about Trump. They blamed him for the sinking of the economy, and that was without stringent lock downs of business and factories. Just how much would they be howling about at this time about the economy if he had shut everything down ? No matter which way he had jumped, they would have found something to bitch about, it being a no win situation ! If people are so damn stupid as to the situation of the virus and what to do about it, then the old saying still exists........you can’t fix stupid ! If they need a president to tell them what to do in order to remain safe, they are too dumb to even know when to breath. Trump can not remedy an issue that the sh!t-eating communists bastards gifted to the entire world, and then even had the guts to try to blame it on someone else. POS country !

              • Bowhunter "the economy" is doing just fine, if by the economy you mean the stock market, even our GDP is running far above most. Where both parties went wrong, and Trump to a much smaller extent, was in not giving direct monetary support directly to people. They did once, with the $1200, then again with unemp at $600 (with tons of cheating going around) and that made a huge difference.

                The problem is they blew much more on failing businesses and kickbacks to donors. I don't like handing out free money to people, but now is the time.

                China didin't give us anything. They made a stupid mistake in a lab. Then their local govt tried to cover up for a week. The denial Trump has done for 6 months they did for a week. Then they got their act together, and we had 2 months warning.

                • The 2020 COVID-19 "scam-demic"?
                  Bah!
                  Hum bug!

                  Comment


                  • "scam-demic" is damn well the best term I have heard for this chinese communist virus. What worries me, instead of standing up like men, and Americans, we are encouraged and even forced by our guvn'mint to act like a bunch of scared little girls (whiny nine), wear face diapers that do nothing as a preventative, and they are trying to shut down every tradition and even our religious gatherings.
                    The guvn'mint decrees fly in the face of the Constitution, go against a lot of medical advice, (which is confusing, and contradictory), and actually against all reason.
                    Then, we have the lamestream fake news media out there painting a boogyman that makes Godzilla look like a fresh hatched horny toad! This "scam-demic" has even fitted right in to the demoncrat scheme to steal a national election, by allowing for mail in voting, which is nothing more than a license to stuff ballot boxes by fraud.
                    When are we going to start ignoring the feckless politicians, medical people with shit for brains, and all the media hype, and stand up like men, and Americans?

                    • I just heard, and I can't vouch for the veracity of this story, but full stop signs and traffic lights, to say nothing of speed limits, are just a ploy by the government to accustom us all to obeying orders from the government, all in the name of public safety:-))
                      Stand up like men and Americans, and just give them the finger!

                      • Britain became the first country in the world to authorize a rigorously tested COVID-19 vaccine Wednesday and could be dispensing shots within days — a historic step toward eventually ending the outbreak that has killed more than 1.4 million people around the globe.

                        https://news.yahoo.com/uk-authorizes...071718543.html

                        In giving the go-ahead for emergency use of the vaccine developed by American drugmaker Pfizer and Germany’s BioNTech, Britain vaulted past the United States by at least a week. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is not scheduled to consider the vaccine until Dec. 10.

                        “This is a day to remember, frankly, in a year to forget," British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said.

                              • 2,760 a new one day record of deaths in the US. Infection rates seem to be headed down, maybe I'm just being optimistic but it seems to be doing so on charts of counties, states, and the entire country.

                                We are in what's called condition red. The highest rating before they just close everything. I think restaurants are only take out and outdoors, businesses are only allowed 25% of people in offices. People who are vulnerable can get unemp benefits and not be penalized for missing work, bars of course closed. There's a lot less traffic though what is left is more vicious at commuting hours. I seem to hear ambulances more than normal. Hospital beds at 94% of capacity, tons of PPE, ICU beds in hospitals are 90% also, plenty of vents but they don't use them as much anymore, tends to kill people.
