I just read an article a few minutes ago about someone with a blood alcohol content so high he died of alcohol poisoning getting the covid thing listed.
I really hope that when this is all said and done, a panel is assigned to look into each and every one of these deaths even if it takes decades and when necessary adjust the numbers and go back after the people who got paid more for having it listed as such. At the least they should be refunding the money if not outright charged with fraud of some type.
I read somewhere else today about some pandemic that hit from 68-70 that killed about 100,000 in the US. I never heard of that one either but there was a nice picture of the crowds at Woodstock right in the middle of it. It appears no politicians fighting over it and no media fear hype let it slide right out of public awareness.
State of the stupidity for today.
It appears we've been listing total tests including antibody tests all under one number even though the two tests show two different answers to two different questions. Apparently as early as Monday now that they've been called out on it and questioned about including the Brand x tests with the high percentage of bad results they're going to separate the two tests into separate categories, no explanation yet why they aren't using the 4 approved tests from the CDC/FDA instead of Brand X.
No explanation I heard said how many of the positive test results were from which test type so that makes me question if the antibody positive tests were being added to the other tests for active infections positive results, if that doesn't mean the active infection rate is actually lower than expected. I guess we'll find out Monday.
Meanwhile, while all this questionable data is out on the street, the Richmond mayor asks at the last minute to keep the Richmond citizens locked up an extra two weeks based on that questionable data.
The 1st problem with that is he waited too late to act since restaurants had already called people back from unemployment to work that now are ineligible for unemployment it seems. Now what do they do for the next two weeks?
The 2nd problem with this is the restaurants had already spent money they probably don't have extra of restocking and now some of that food is going to either go to waste or it'll need to be donated which does nothing to restock the cupboards again two weeks from now.
The 3rd problem is this is the same mayor who just had sound bits a week or so ago looking rather silly and pathetic asking where the people were going when the cell phone tracking of their movements showed them leaving home in large numbers. I believe I remember him saying where are they going? That in and of itself should be obvious. If you can't work, you can't go the gym, you can't go out to eat, you can't go to church, you can't go to a ball game, then here in the country you go FISHING!!!! You visit some relatives or friends in the country to play basketball at their house where you want get busted. Drugs don't grow on sidewalks, you need farmland and contacts out of town to restock. There's 80 Dollar stores to check trying to find that last roll of toilet paper. Liquor sales were up I believe they said $30 million dollars in April. ABC stores are open!!! You name it and there's things you can do and ways to do it. Even the governor said you could go to non essential businesses as long as they had less than 10 people at a time inside. Now all you've done is given small business's in Richmond more hardship to have to endure and all those people another two week's worth of reason to leave the city limits and give their sales tax money to other localities which they will. Don't think so, check the illegal tracking stuff again on their phones two weeks from now and you'll see the truth.
I want my donuts but I'm not sure I'm willing to drive an hour to bring you meals tax money if I can't at least sit down outside and eat a few before having to drive back!! Maybe the one on 60 is over the city limit sign.
