2020 Dumpster Fire (Enter at your own risk)

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, in an attempt to jump start the economy, we filled the car with petro and took a 100 mile (1 way) journey to where we grew up.  Spent some time walking around.  Grass is turning green and the birds are coming back.

Not withstanding,

'I still won't rolar skate in a buffalo herd'

I work in research. My job is to poke holes in other peoples research to find where they were wrong, find where they were right, and what could be improved. The same is done by others for my research. A scrutiny that is being done by all parties on coronavirus until the dust settles. Or at least the "where they were wrong" bit is being applied. Don't be personally offended that I called Facebook screenshots a poor source of reliable information. See Example of ND department of health comment

To establish credibility when sharing information, you typically share directly from the primary source which has the credibility and expertise that you do not have. Work that UNDBIZ just did for you. I should not have had you doubting the validity of your own statement considering you and Cratter were ultimately right. Facebook is just not a good source to reference, too many russian influencers.

Believe it or not, the NDDOH posts on Facebook.  Which is why I wrote "a FB post FROM the NDDOH"...where the operative word is very important, much like how they go about including COVID deaths --- "with" instead of "from".

Too many Russian influencers on Facebook? Is that why you think the current president won the election too?

Or maybe the smart, majority of people that use their brain without damaging it (personal choice what one eats/drinks) and keeps an open mind, can critically think, are just sick of the bulls:/t, the media, tv, tech, agenda articles, agena tech companies, agenda non-profits, click bait articles. Hired actors. agenda corporate executives. I could go on forever....

Brother lives in CA. Golf courses aren’t open and classified as not safe...and you’re a horrible person for even thinking that

but... but..groceries stores, some slimy older Walmarts. Safe.  Safeway. Safe. Liquor stores because booze is “essentially” evidently. Safe  

If you were to go to work, you’d probably end up dead and killing scores of people. So don’t do that for gods sake. And definitely don’t go do any sort of outdoor recreation or anything because that will also spread the virus and kills scads of old people. 

what am i missing tin foil hat people? Sheep of the people, what am I missing?

Again, we, the majority aren’t NYC and live on top of each other in that chaos  

 

Don't be naive. Trump won the election fairly. He was smart, charismatic, handled matters decisively, and did everything he needed to right in order to win. Hint: I didn't vote against Trump. Facebook is just notorious for being a host of false information, screenshots of screenshots are not to be trusted at first glance. Facebook does not invoke real change. Political attacks do not invoke real change.

If majority of people were smart, they would be able to figure out how to challenge the status quo and make the system work for them instead of against them.

I understand why you are upset, we all are. If the current system is not working for you, what actions have you specifically taken to change that? If you have taken no action, but expected change to work in your favor, then you are just a sheep waiting for action to be taken for you.

All the homeless people tho are just partying cause they can’t get in the mission drunk. 

there was a group of about 12 walking down behind the toasted frog...wouldn't say all of them looked homeless but the few i saw face to fact while biking by looking high or drunk...one guy on the corner with the sign gave up after a bit and was walking back to town square park where the other half dozen were sitting

Montana "stay at home" order expired yesterday. Montana gets back to business today. Retail stores can open. Places of worship/churches opened their doors yesterday. Bars, restaurants, breweries can open 5/4. Schools can open 5/7. Montana has 300K more in population yet they have performed almost 8000 less tests than ND. Their positive hit rate is around 3.5%. ND's is slightly above 4%. Drumbeat from day 1.....save lives and flatten curve for the hospitals. MT 14 deaths. 61 total hospitalizations. ND 17/71. MT governor is.........a Democrat. What am I missing? Or the better question is.....What is Doug missing?

I noticed that too, that Grand Forks has put closed signs on playgrounds. Are they going to arrest people that don't comply?

I'm beginning to think the linkage to Gates might have traction.  It would have been nice to be a bird in the room during their conversation as the virus was just starting.

ND has 75 more positives today but pumped out its biggest testing day yet with 1987 tests. That positive testing rate is lower than the average testing rate to date.

From COVID or with COVID?  I am sure they will write FROM, even though they cannot know that yet.

I haven't heard much about using too much hand sanitizer lately.  In the past we were warned using too much could compromise your immune system, so one has to wonder with all this washing and sanitizing if we aren't going to be more vulnerable to other things in the future.

Cue an executive order temporarily banning hand sanitizer in 3..2...1...

Inside my stats in CA:  cases still ticking up due to testing.  Hospital admits for CV19 just fell off a cliff!  Discharges 2:1 over admits.  This is a great sign.  Again considering it’s probably 10-14 days from infection to an admission, we are probably a good 2 weeks post real concern.  Plus homeless and SNF folks have nowhere to discharge to at present, and those populations appear to be driving the positives out there.  I believe in CA we are post pandemic and dealing with a flu at this point...no more public health concern for the masses, just the vulnerable...plus we were 90 and sunny all weekend, frying up that little virus!  Let’s Go!
