    Inb4 conspiracy theory nuts try to use "COVID-13" as evidence that the virus was developed in a lab back in 2013.

    Because, you know, Occam's razor and typos don't exist in their "reality".

    Ehh, I wouldn't be so sure. They already thought that the 19 in COVID-19 meant that it was the 19th COVID virus.

    I'd love to hear the reasoning behind that.

    "The virus was made in a lab to kill Trump voters!"
    "Oh, Trump voters have a genetic marker?"
    "No, we just don't take science seriously and if there was a lethal pandemic we'd ignore medicine, science, and common sense until it killed us."
    "...that sounds ridiculously easy to prevent. Why not do what many Asian cultures have done recently and wear a mask when there's an infectious outbreak?"
    "DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!"
    "Even when...it's engineered to kill you specifically and personally?"
    (thud)
    "SHUT UP!" (snorts hydrocortozone) *thump*

    Gop were so concerned about women in Afghanistan. I guess they'll support evacuating wonen from Texas.

    I hope as many women flee Texas as possible. That is, unless Texan women actively enjoy being 3/5th of a citizen compared to anyone in civilized states.

    Prosecutors in the murderous insurrection cases have counted the number of assaults committed during the murderous insurrection.

    A thousand.

    If that sounds high, it should. But bear in mind 570 people were arrested, so it's really just one or two assautls on federal law enforcement during a treason attempt each.

    I'm not seeing the problem. You're acting like they can't somehow believe both.

    Consider the full belief system of conservatives when it comes to Covid:

    It’s simultaneously a hoax that’s also a Democratic plot that was also intentionally created by the Chinese, against which both the dangerous masks and dangerous vaccine are ineffective, that is an overblown problem and example of government overreach and liberal overreaction all while the virus is supposedly being insidiously spread by illegal immigrants.

    You want consistency, you aren’t going to get any. It’s whatever allows them to be angry at whatever specific democrat politics they don’t like.

    While all that stuff is believed, its doubtful that a single person would hold to all of those conspiracies simultaneously. They've all grabbed onto a few conspiracies each and sort of allied up with others for now. I mean here in Australia you have this weird mix of far-right freedumbers mixing with alternative lifestyler left-wing hippies in opposition to vaccines and lockdowns. Its a bizarre mix. Like when Hitler and Stain teamed up. (Prior to covid, the main group of anti-vaxxers here were not the right-wingers, but the hippies who congregated together into a region in NSW and as a result childhood vaccination levels there were around 50%, which is worse than most third world countries.)

    I thought the goal was to make it appear that the US had released a bio weapon on chinese soil and thus declared war

    Or to give the rest of the world cause to sue the US for .. quite a lot of money in damages

    Couple of points to share this morning. Candace the Hitler Defender Owens, hasn't recently been seen in public, she was scheduled to do a couple speaking engagements, but cancelled them for what she claims was a "emergency vacation" to Aspen. Where she wasn't posting anything on her Twitter, claiming that the vacation town in Colorado has poor cell service. The problem is, her team said she had a sudden "illness". What illness? Well, she was at a speaking engagement with Milo Yiannopolous, to which, he has been diagnosed with Covid and is literally injecting Ivermectin, something proven to not work.

    Well, yesterday, Candace was denied an appointment at a private covid testing facility. The facility wrote her an email stating they were denying her service because of her anti-vaccination status. https://www.newsweek.com/candace-owe...-aspen-1625289

    And then there is this: https://www.tiktok.com/@realryanshea...from_webapp=v1

    Yes. It is a Tiktok video, but the video is HILARIOUS. Watching $15 billion fall down, to WIND. @Breccia you might find this funny. It was posted the 25th of August, so it is a week old, but everything that Trump touches, dies. I would be worried about the people that live in his buildings and other places he owns.

    That is on top of the rain that happened in Arizona that destroyed parts of it.

    I'd certainly find it interesting if all the right wing grifters happened to end up killing themselves off literally because of their grift with Ivermectin.

    Covid happened under Trump, the reason we're still dealing with it is due to his rhetoric and his zealots pushing not to get vaccines or use masks. If you wanted truth you'd actually look at it instead of ignoring it.

    So democrats are lying and republicans actually want to make it easier to get an abortion?

    Liberals say republicans want abortion gone because republicans keep telling us they want it gone.

    They'd deserve it.
    Sorry if it sounds harsh, but these Trump mouthpieces that others have listened to, to their detriment and loss of life deserve to get run over by the karma train.

    Wednesday's report:

    184,420 new cases; 2k more than last Wednesday.

    Top 10:

    Fuck Florida.
    Texas: 24,030 new cases; 325 deaths
    California: 16,873 new cases; 147 deaths
    Georgia: 9,702 new cases; 130 deaths
    Tennessee: 9,419 new cases; 32 deaths
    North Carolina: 7,248 new cases; 61 deaths
    Ohio: 7,102 new cases; deaths not reported
    South Carolina: 5,347 new cases; 86 deaths
    Illinois: 5,178 new cases; 35 deaths
    Kentucky: 4,931 new cases; 12 deaths

    I've pretty much given up trying to figure out what the fuck Florida is doing, to be honest. Their new case numbers often don't jive with their hospitalization numbers and we've already heard about the shenanigans they're pulling with deaths (though the New York Times seems to be ignoring their new system and just reporting as normal--new record for Florida's deaths to kick off the month). In any case they're still doing awful, though it looks as though Texas has eclipsed them at this point both in new cases and deaths. Gosh I can't imagine why both of those states are doing so poorly. Especially with Texas "mastering" the pandemic, as Abbott claimed. Before contracting COVID. California's bumped up a bit more after a week of little movement. Most of the South--and Wyoming--are listed as "severe" risk. South Dakota currently has the worst positivity (23.2%) and highest infection rate (1.29) and are moving up the list of new infections per 100k, from 30's a few days ago to 22 now. Hope the Rally was worth it.

    1,480 deaths is slightly higher than last week and brings the total to 659,927. Texas takes the top spot with 325, their highest since early February. Florida was in second with 263 (according to NYT; Florida officially reported 10 with their new system) and California had nearly 150. Georgia narrowly avoided the top 3 with 130 and that will likely be going higher. The national 7-day average is above 1,150 now and climbing. I'm still optimistic we won't pass 2k, but it still won't be pretty.

    Related news:

    Millions Of People Are Missing From CDC COVID Data As States Fail To Report Cases
    Most states have voluntarily sent up whatever records they have, but a handful have not. Texas, Missouri, Louisiana, West Virginia and Wyoming have each submitted less than one-tenth of their total cases. Another handful of states, including Florida, Michigan and Kentucky, have smaller but still significant gaps in their data, each completely missing over 30% of their known cases.

    Over 3 million Texans have had COVID-19, but just 81,000 are in the data set. That's not even 3%.
    Guess it's past time I add "Fuck Texas" to my short list of recurring themes.

    Largest study of masks yet details their importance in fighting Covid-19--There is no excuse--zero--for fighting mask mandates. They literally save lives. Wear. Your. Fucking. Mask. Karen.

    Pfizer launches later-stage study of pill to treat COVID-19--If successful and proven safe this will...be yet another cheap, effective treatment that the Trump cult will eschew in favor of crackpot snake oil cures, probably.

    Stay safe, folks.

    Well, to be fair, I don't discount anything getting knocked over by the wind. I've seen full load semis getting knocked over by wind(that is why in high wind and are driving a semi, you pull over and hope it won't knock you over). High wind gusts can pretty much topple most everything.

    However, a wall that is built as poorly as that wall is would be knocked over by a gentle breeze.
