"It's time to open up the United States now," she insisted. "We are not a communist nation."

The stupid is strong with this one, Obi Wan Kenoboi.
Kristi Nichols- Kansas City resident, "I understand viruses. This is no worse than the flu."


Watch Fox News and DIE. End of Story.

Just because we need this. Ripple

If the big meat processing plants get shut down do we have the capacity to use local farmers,

local meat processing plants and butchers to take their place? I know that most big chain stores
no longer have in house butchers but can we just bypass the big plants?

Call 'em what they are, "Brownshirts" / "You Can't Close America" rallies.

They are a minority of a minority trying to force their Fuhrer's way of thinking on all of us
in order to gain a political and economic advantage for the right wing. Trump, Betsy DeVos,
Eric Prince, Vlad, Stephen Miller, and low level clowns like Owen Shroyer are trying to whip up these beer
gut warriors into a strike force under the guise that their constitutional rights are being taken away with
the shut down in response to the C-19 pandemic. We have seen this movie before and it was the
rise of Hitler* in Germany 1930s. Trump is on the ropes because he was part of the biggest fuck
up of all times w/the outbreak of C-19 and he wants those dumb ass "freedom fighters" out there
raising hell. Hence the red meat Trump throws out to them with his "they want to take away your 2nd
amendment freedoms."

And in the end if the wind up sick and/or dead from C-19 or get shot by law enforcement because they
like to flash their AR-15s as they protest their "oppressors" aka Governors, Mayors, & State Health
Dept. leaders who are trying to fight the virus by the only means at their disposal and that is
shut downs, social distancing, and staying @ home then Trump/Barr/Hannity ... don't give a shit about
these modern day brownshirts they are just a means to an end.

* According to Trump's wife #1 Donald kept a copy of Hitler's speeches by his bed.

I'll Stand By You

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'Cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
You're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'Cause even if you're wrong
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
And when
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

OH's Screaming Zombie, Melissa Ackison, is running as a Republican for State Senate

Republican Melissa Ackison was among about 100 protesters outside the Statehouse during DeWine’s appearance inside on Monday.

A Ohio Senate candidate took part in a protest Monday of Gov. Mike DeWine's handling of the coronavirus shutdown, accusing the fellow Republican of fear-mongering and calling him a tyrant.

About 100 protesters gathered outside the Statehouse during DeWine's appearance at his daily news conference inside. At least one protester wore a Donald Trump hat, and many carried signs expressing opposition to the governor's stay-at-home order or waved American flags.

In the crowd was Melissa Ackison, a Republican from Marysville running for the open District 26 seat. She said she agrees with Trump's assertion that the president has authority over state governors in deciding to lift restrictions on the economy.


"Patriots who love and respect our liberties and the Constitution are sick and tired of the fear-mongering while the governor and (state Health Director) Dr. (Amy) Acton continue to hide the numbers from the public."


BTW Amy Acton has been doing a very good job on C-19 as has Gov. Mike DeWine too.

Do you hate Trump and want him beaten? Go buy some stamps. And then vote by mail.

2 books are about $22.00. Trump is saying that the post office has no money so please go
buy some stamps to stick it to him. By buying stamps (and not using all of them) we can
turn the Post Office's deficit into a surplus.

If everybody who hates Trump and the damage he has done to America and the world would
just go and buy some stamps then we can beat that "Orange Hellbeast." BTW it would make
Donny really mad too because one of his firewalls to try to stay in power is to keep people
voting on machines where "they" can cheat but "they" can't do that w/mail in ballots.

This is not my idea but please pass it on.

Anybody "twitter handy?" #stampouttrump

Trump is the biggest fuck up in history. And all his rage and spluttering will not change that.

I might be wrong but Trump could lose all 50 states. His help in making sick 100s millions of people,
killing 10s millions of people world wide, as America falls into a depression/recession, and now he is
pushing his hydroxychloroquine snake oil so that he, Jared, and his jailed lawyer Cohen can make
money off of that toxic crap. We and the world should not be going through this C-19 hellscape right
now but Putin put him into the White House and Trump pulled the biggest fuck up of all times in his
handling of C-19. For the love of dog we were part of an international team, Predict, (the black guy's idea)
that had a lab and scientists on the ground in Wuhan, China until Sept. 2019 and they were looking for
coronaviruses but Trump pulled the funding for the organization. The world wide cost for the international
teams was just about the same as we have paid for Trump to go golfing all those time.

Trump rages because he knows he is caught and the CBS reporter had him dead to rights because he
did nothing for 2 + months as the C-19 was coming. BTW I think he knew about it (C-19) in Nov. of
2019 because that was when our intel picked it up.

Sorry to

For the love of dog please make it stop. The man is talking about his ratings and the media's ratings?
This is not a fucking reality show.

Thanx to the DUer who posts links to WETA

This MIGHT be good news on vaccines for coronavirus.


COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate Shows Promise

PITTSBURGH – University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine scientists today announced a potential vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus causing the COVID-19 pandemic. When tested in mice, the vaccine, delivered through a fingertip-sized patch, produces antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 at quantities thought to be sufficient for neutralizing the virus.

The paper appeared today in EBioMedicine, which is published by The Lancet, and is the first study to be published after critique from fellow scientists at outside institutions that describes a candidate vaccine for COVID-19. The researchers were able to act quickly because they had already laid the groundwork during earlier coronavirus epidemics.


The researchers also used a novel approach to deliver the drug, called a microneedle array, to increase potency. This array is a fingertip-sized patch of 400 tiny needles that delivers the spike protein pieces into the skin, where the immune reaction is strongest. The patch goes on like a Band-Aid and then the needles — which are made entirely of sugar and the protein pieces — simply dissolve into the skin.


The system also is highly scalable. The protein pieces are manufactured by a “cell factory” — layers upon layers of cultured cells engineered to express the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein — that can be stacked further to multiply yield. Purifying the protein also can be done at industrial scale. Mass-producing the microneedle array involves spinning down the protein-sugar mixture into a mold using a centrifuge. Once manufactured, the vaccine can sit at room temperature until it’s needed, eliminating the need for refrigeration during transport or storage.


When tested in mice, PittCoVacc generated a surge of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 within two weeks of the microneedle prick.
