Line item in my checking account this morning.
US Treasury Dept.- Covid-19(CORVIR) Stimulus   +$1200

You must have more need than I do.

So, it turns out that Ward was out and out lying.

Pretty revolting, Ward.

I will confess to very possibly being wrong.

While the number of new cases and number of new dead continue to be in or close to new record territory in the US, the rate of increase has definitely slowed or stopped over the last couple days.

It's too early to be sure that this is not a lull, but it isn't just a single day blip. We haven't had a new high in daily cases since April 4th. We haven't had a new high in daily deaths since April 7th, though I would caution that new high was 48% above the previous high, three days before, and we were within 71 of that peak yesterday. We'd seen four out of five days between 1000 and 1330. Now we've had 3 between 1900 and 1971, going into today. Still, reason for cautious optimism.

I had a Bernie-supporter post a plaintive "The Riden-with-Biden folks are just going to drive me away with their shame tactics!"

So, I asked what would work, since that won't.

Respect and empathy, I was told. I noted that I knew how that felt, as I have felt disrespected and not understood for a long time.

Next answer was for him to adopt college debt forgiveness, Medicare for All, and the Green New Deal. I posted Biden's long time position adopting the GND. Then I posted today's news:

Ive seen more and more pictures recently of trump going around in a bright yellow baseball cap emblazoned with the words, I Dont Give a Shit about You

Do you credit that to the new press secretary or the new chief of staff?

Nope.

New memers.

MGM has been ordered to turn over unaired footage of The Apprentice.

The court case is about scams. Whyever would anybody think Trump was involved with scams?! After all, his (new) press sec'y says he never lies!

Germany is going to widely test for COVID-19 antibodies to see what percentage of the public is now immune - the first country to do so.

Can't let those public health officials be telling the truth where people might hear them!

It's in the article.

No, it really isn't.

There is an attempt at an explanation and a shot at deferring some of the issues with it: "only closing some" locations is no explanation for why any are being shut.

And given the difficulties in getting supplies for non-federal operated testing facilities, it makes even less sense.

So, why?

 :( >:( :o

Why has the administration ordered FEMA to terminate support for coronavirus testing sites?

Kid? Ward? Bueller?

Ignorant, stupid, and insensitive - and proud of it!

Bill O'Reilly says the folks who died from COVID-19 were "on their last legs, anyway."

And spectacularly untrue.

That was the ignorant and stupid part, yes.

Good morning.

I haven't seen Trump discount other remedies being deployed/tried.

Until yesterday (or was it the day before), while he didn't knock them explicitly by his only promoting one, repeatedly, it had that effect.

And you know that.
