All roads lead to Putin including C-19.

We would not be going through this pandemic nightmare if Hillary Clinton had not
had the Presidency been stolen from her by Russia/Putin/Trump/GOP.

She would not have fired the global pandemic task force.

She would not have fired the epidemiologist from the CDC that was in Wuhan China in Sept. 2018.

She would not have pulled us out of multinational task force called Predict that was looking
for disease outbreaks in China in Sept. 2019.

She would not have been looking for ways to make money off of a coming pandemic by
investing in hrydoxychloroquine and their own C-19 test kit that Kushner and Trump
did in November and December (best guess).

Frank Burns, "It is nice to be nice to the nice."

About 3 to 5 years ago I was talking with one of my neighbor's daughter and she said that she was looking @ some Georgia O'Keefe stuff ... she would have been 11 or 12 then .... so I lent her a book with a bunch of O'Keefe pictures in it and well today I noticed that she had done a multi colored chalk pastel drawing of a flower and put it in the book when she returned it. It is awesome. So I went and got a frame and gave it back to her and her family.

She turns 16 or 17 this December. I hope she keeps up her artwork. She is taking on line college and Sr. level high school work now and she loves to walk my young lab too.

Btw I am also giving her the Georgia O'Keefe book too.

Sorry to ramble.

Trump orders hospitals to bypass CDC in reporting Covid data, so his people see the numbers first

The Trump administration has ordered hospitals to bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and, beginning on Wednesday, send all coronavirus patient information to a central database in Washington — a move that has alarmed public health experts who fear the data will be distorted for political gain.

The new instructions are contained in a little-noticed document posted this week on the Department of Health and Human Services’ website, Sheryl Gay Stolberg reports. From now on, H.H.S., and not the C.D.C., will collect daily reports about the patients that each hospital is treating, how many beds and ventilators are available, and other information vital to tracking the pandemic.


Public health experts have long expressed concern that the administration is politicizing science and undermining the disease control centers; four former C.D.C. directors, spanning both Republican and Democratic administrations, said as much in an opinion piece published Tuesday in The Washington Post. The data collection shift reinforced those fears.

“Centralizing control of all data under the umbrella of an inherently political apparatus is dangerous and breeds distrust,” said Nicole Lurie, who served as assistant secretary for preparedness and response under former President Barack Obama. “It appears to cut off the ability of agencies like C.D.C. to do its basic job.”


3 school teachers in Winkelman (AZ) get COVID-19, one later dies

Go ahead Betsy Devos push that opening schools back up meme.

"She bought face shields, she practiced social distancing. She did everything she could to avoid this virus .... "

PHOENIX — Three school teachers in the small eastern Arizona community of Winkelman tested positive for the coronavirus last month and one of them died, according to a Phoenix television station.


“She notified me that they wanted to intubate her and put her on a ventilator,” Jesse Byrd said of his wife. “That was the last time I was allowed to speak with her.”

Byrd said he wasn’t allowed to be at his wife’s side when she died June 26 after being hospitalized for almost two weeks.


“She bought face shields, she practiced social distancing. She did everything she could to avoid this virus, Luke Byrd said of his mother, who was a teacher for nearly 40 years and came out of retirement to help more students.


Hundreds of people celebrated the July 4 weekend at a Michigan lake. Now some have Covid-19

Source: CNN

(CNN)After revelers celebrated the Fourth of July at a Michigan lake, some started testing positive for Covid-19 -- prompting health officials to warn other party-goers that they might have been infected, too.

The Health Department of Northwest Michigan said other health officials in the state reported that several people have tested positive "after attending the festivities at the Torch Lake sandbar over the Fourth of July holiday," the department said Friday.

Those who tested positive weren't able to identify everyone they had contact with, "and therefore we want to make the public aware that those who attended could be at risk for exposure, and additional cases could be seen in the coming days," the health department said.

Trump is toast. No SEC football this year?

And it all goes back to Trump too.

This will be like when Coach Bear Bryant got his ass kicked by USC (I think) and black players. No football is gonna make Billy Joe Jr. really pissed.

Can't sugar coat it... this is all on Trump and those who illegally installed him into power.

Good God in Butter is Trump stupid. Absentee ballots are OK but mail in ballots aren't.


Absentee ballots are mail in ballots.

They want to die. Trumpers that is.

I stopped by my local Trump/Fox News bar in Columbus tonight for a carry out sub ... stupid good ... and the porch is backed up without one mask and people are on top of each other too.

The Beast is burning through Franklin County 10,000 dignosed cases and at least 100,00 according to the CDC's numbers. My vet's office 1 mile north of here just had to close because 2 of the vets and 2 or 3 of the techs had the virus.

Sweet Tweets




As per MSNBC last night we could very well be @ 1,000,000 new cases per day very soon.

Dr. Fauci said that 100,000 new cases per day is a very real possibility and then another
expert* said that according to the CDC the real # is more than likely 10 times that amount
so we could be looking @ 1,000,000 new cases of C-19 per day.

* Sorry I didn't catch his name he was on Brian Williams show.

So thanx to Trump and company we now are all in one of 2 groups:

1) Those of us that have the virus or had the disease.

2) Those of us that will get the virus.

The surge is occurring because America reopened before COVID-19 was contained.

Even Italy–not always known for the effectiveness of its leaders or the pliability of its citizens–has contained the virus and is reopening without a resurgence.
