    Don't worry, according to trump in 4 days the cases will go from 91k all the way to 0.

    My biggest regret remains that Trump had a fast recovery from covid and that it did not hospitalize him for weeks like it did with Christy.

    It seems the only way to get through to these fucking psychotically irresponsible mass-murderers is for them to personally experience extreme suffering. I wish it wasn't so, but that's what all evidence suggests.

    I use to think like that when this administration took office, but now I'm really not too sure. I had hoped that when the shit piled up so deep that they couldn't breathe they'd see the truth. There are those who have turned back from the brink, but on the whole I believe his following are so entrenched that no matter the misfortune caused by this buffoon they will support him.

    I have pretty much given up hope on these people. And the funny thing is that makes me the very thing they hate. A "Liberal" looking down his nose at them.

    McConnell confirms what we already suspected" the US needs another relief bill and he just doesn't want to do it.

    Specifically, he's put off any bill till 2021 because it's just not a priority for the Party of Trump.

    Also, Trump's plan on the subject is "we'll just win back the House".

    A party that can't even negotiate with itself.

    I figured out what his skin darkening was. He just forgot to put make up on his hands to hide that he is actually a dread lord.

    Yeah, we are looking likely to hit 100,000 new cases today.

    Fuck. I had just talked about this last night with my father; I had commented that with how high the new cases were yesterday, I wouldn't be shocked if we saw 100k cases in one day within a week. I didn't expect it to be the next day!

    The press needs to be hammering Trump over this and ask how he can keep insisting COVID is going away when cases are surging all over the country aside from sheer denial.

    No that explains it.

    Also, the bulk of the decisions lately have been without Barrett.

    *shrug* Wait and see. I'd love to be wrong on this. In fact, feel free to bookmark this post and come back and remind me of it if the issue comes up and I'll happily admit I was completely wrong about it.

    EDIT: This will likely be what's used for reference and SCOTUS recently came to a 5-4 decision related to it--when RGB was still on the bench.
    NC and PA decisions would be unchanged even if Barrett disagreed.

    That actually would explain a lot for the past 4 years that's for sure

    Yeah, most of you have already seen it, but...

    101,461 new cases; roughly 20k more than last Friday. Another day, another new record.

    Illinois: 7,164 new cases (new record); 49 deaths
    Texas: 6,819 new cases; 105 deaths
    Fuck Florida.
    Wisconsin: 5,096 new cases; 24 deaths
    California: 4,889 new cases; 56 deaths
    Ohio: 3,826 new cases (new record); 16 deaths
    Michigan: 3,345 new cases; 12 deaths
    Indiana: 3,163 new cases; 26 deaths
    Minnesota: 3,154 new cases (new record); 19 deaths
    Kansas: 2,877 new cases (new record); 20 deaths
    Iowa: 2,823 new cases (new record); 10 deaths
    North Carolina: 2,809 new cases; 49 deaths
    Missouri: 2,794 new cases; 30 deaths
    Tennessee: 2,608 new cases; 78 deaths (new record)
    Pennsylvania: 2,499 new cases (new record*); 30 deaths
    Colorado: 2,412 new cases (new record); 10 deaths
    New York: 2,301 new cases; 12 deaths
    Utah: 2,292 new cases (new record); 3 deaths
    New Jersey: 2,036 new cases; 6 deaths
    Kentucky: 1,937 new cases (new record); 15 deaths
    Massachusetts: 1,582 new cases; 24 deaths
    Arizona: 1,565 new cases; 16 deaths
    South Dakota: 1,559 new cases (new record); 12 deaths
    Nebraska: 1,495 new cases; 9 deaths
    Virginia: 1,456 new cases; 7 deaths
    Georgia: 1,377 new cases; 32 deaths
    North Dakota: 1,353 new cases (new record); 13 deaths
    Alabama: 1,347 new cases; 18 deaths
    Oklahoma: 1,302 new cases; 20 deaths
    Nevada: 1,232 new cases; 8 deaths
    Arkansas: 1,162 new cases; 6 deaths
    Washington: 1,102 new cases; 4 deaths
    Idaho: 1,064 new cases; 11 deaths
    Montana: 1,063 new cases (new record); 27 deaths (new record)
    New Mexico: 1,005 new cases; 13 deaths (new record)
    South Carolina: 1,003 new cases; 7 deaths

    I may need to consider raising my threshold. That's 36 states over 1k and several are getting close. Montana is on there for the first time ever. Wyoming is halfway there. I might consider putting in the totals for Florida again even though they're undoubtedly false simply because they're back to admitting to numbers as high as they had in mid-to-late August. I've removed the asterisk from Iowa's record because they've now eclipsed their previous record even if you're counting the huge correction day. I've added an asterisk to Pennsylvania's because technically they had one day with higher numbers but it was a combination of two days' data.

    I mean, what's to say? Shit is fucked. There's very little change from yesterday and outbreaks are running rampant throughout the bulk of the country. We're now a little under 20k higher than our previous peak back in the Summer and there doesn't appear to be any sense that it'll be stopping soon. Even if only 1% of cases are bad enough to be sent to the hospital that's still a thousand people a day--those resources are going to get stretched thin quickly, especially in more rural areas with less healthcare coverage. Trump's incompetence will kill a lot of people--again. And this time a lot of them are going to be his base. For some their last act before getting sick will be going to the polling stations on Tuesday to cast their vote for their own murderer.

    988 is nearly a hundred more than last week and increases the total to 235,159. I expect it will be over 1k next Friday as the increase in cases from a couple weeks past starts bearing rotten fruit. As bad as this increase in cases is, the end result in the coming week(s) will be far more horrible. Texas hit 100 deaths again, a few states hit new records. More than half the states in the union have been reporting double-digit death totals nearly daily and that will only get worse as time goes on.

    Related news:

    Donald Trump Jr. says recent COVID-19 deaths are 'almost nothing.' More than 20K people died this month.--I posted this earlier in passing, but it bears repeating. That family are all remorseless, selfish assholes.
    Coronavirus updates: US hits 9 million cases, faster than one per second--In the time it took you to read this report, if you read all of it, probably 50-100 more people contracted COVID-19.
    COVID-19 Antibodies May Last Longer Than Researchers Thought--Because, again, we could use some good news.

    Stay safe, folks.

    Jack shit.

    Though ironically, Trump may well be the best thing to have happened for the Democratic party in a while if the election on Tuesday ends up following the polls and a blue tsunami occurs. Possibly two wave elections in a row in Democrats favor thanks to Trumps sheer incompetence and corruption.
