Title: Did he really say that?
Post by: GoForSmoke on Jun 07, 2020, 04:22 am
Maybe it's all CGI but I thought I heard the smartest guy in the world try to use the image of George Floyd in heaven being happy he was F___ING MURDERED because people got together to protest the fact.

What kind of sick reptile does it take to come up with crap like that? We have an answer or was it a Real Fake or the Fraud his-damned-self?

The point is being two faced just like the smartest man on earth.

The comments out of his mouth is about the privilege allotted him as he grew up, then out comes past transgressions which were kept from the voting public, then he was forced to make acknowledgement, apologies and sunny ways.

Like oh so many others there is a rebirth and then a second coming and enlightenment just like the smartest man on earth.

He and his father raped the western half of our country.

A bit younger, a different country, but cut from the same cloth as the king of the USA.

I knew I heard that name long before this one could have been out of school.

Have you any environmental protection? Ours that took decades to get passed have effectively vanished.
Has your deficit more than doubled since your clown took office? And does his base not see "the boom" as borrow and spend?
Did he jack your trade around until your country pays more for just about everything?
Did he solidly blow off the pandemic and mismanage preparations for it?
If so, does he continue to do so?
Does he act and speak like he's more than 10 and not 'slow'?
Do you ever wonder when yours will declare himself dictator for life?

It was another of Trimpets associated quotes Robin.
So smart he took action to prevent his schools from releasing his grades and reports.

If you were so clever you would not care who knew, but if you were a dimwit you may want to hide the fact.
At least thats my thinking.

General consensus is he or his old man bought his way through school.

General consensus is he or his old man bought his way through school.


The older brother, Fred, got into Wharton on merit while The Donald started at a less noteworthy school and for some reason the old man bought a whole new building for something like 5 million and The Donald entered Wharton as an undergrad.

He has his base convinced that he walked the walk he talked. Other people point out that The Donald never made the Dean's List at Wharton, which is public information. Making the Wharton's Dean List means having averaged a high B. I would have thought that a rich boy with money to buy homework and papers could manage a high B but seeing as how GWB who did buy "help" was a C average at Harvard so I guess that rich boys can't simply buy grades at prestigious schools and maybe have to take and flunk their own tests. Comparing speech and lie frequency I'd say that GWB is smarter than DJT but less ruthless, crude and low which is why the Republicans had Cheney as his vice. Hey, Trump in office is a symptom of a much deeper political disease.

Not only did Trump tweet that but regarding the Buffalo incident he tweeted something along the line of;
"could be an ANTIFA provocateur" who "was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment." The President continued by saying, "I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?"

This is a 75 year old alone in front of around 100 police officers, judge for yourself;

When was the last time anyone heard a police person (junior or senior) saying "sorry, we got that wrong" - and not just in the USA.

Police "management" has either no control over its front line staff or it doesn't care what they do - as long as nobody complains.

Having said that I'm sure there are many considerate and caring officers but their contributions are demeaned by this bully-boy behaviour of their colleagues.

I heard a Republican saying pretty much "We knew that Trump would tear up the rule book but expected that his behaviour would moderate once he was in office.

But the same buttcrack will vote to keep The BS President in the oval orifice.

I saw his 2015 words when Obama pointed out unemployment falling, that unemployment figures lie.
In 2020 he's using falling unemployment as some kind of Trump (read: BS) Economic Miracle.

We went from a deficit of about 400B to a deficit of 1000B and massive "permanent" tax cuts for corporations while citizens get cuts that end in 2024 so that someone else gets blamed for their taxes rising which is yet more strategically planned BS.

I wish the SOB gets the virus bad since he's helped so much to spread it so wildly just to play politics.
When Canute ordered the incoming tide to retreat, at least it was only *his* feet that got wet.

No it cannot. My son works for a fast food place, and his store was closed a week ago because two employees came down with covid. He was told that all employees who were potentially exposed needed to get a virus test (the one with the q-tip shoved up your nose) negative result before they could return to work. He figured "cool, I'll just hop over to CVS and get a test, take a week or so off, and then go back to work.

Instead he took the week off first, and yesterday went to CVS. No dice, no tests available. Nextcare, Walgreens clinic, Fry's clinic, Honor Health, all the same story. All these places that were bursting at the seams with tests a month ago have no tests left.

Uncharacteristically, I turned on the news (Channel 15, the Phoenix ABC affiliate) this evening. The first story was that in the state of Arizona there were 7200 fewer tests done yesterday than the day before. Wow.

Now I'm sure that none of this has anything to do with the meeting between Trump and Ducey on Tuesday at the Trump rally (in an SRO megachurch in Phoenix. I can only guess that slowing testing was the topic of discussion. It's important to Trump that the thousands of new infections not be reflected in any upcoming reports, cause he really wants Arizona not to swing blue.

Arizona also hit its highest number of covid deaths yesterday.

Der Feurher has stated that there will be LESS TESTING since when they test the numbers go up.

He doesn't care about Americans getting the virus, just about how the numbers don't make him look good.

Maybe we just stop testing altogether and it will finally go away like it was supposed to in April. The rise is the fault of testing, if we don't test then nobody has it, sick people will have some other diseases, TOO BAD!, and we can get back to business.

I've seen this before when we had a president named Reagan. Four years after he made massive cuts to public education it was shown that American SAT scores had fallen A LOT. So in 1986 the fix was instituted, America got easier SAT's and has since.

America has been falling behind for close to 40 years. We can't be a first world power with second class education let alone "Great Again". It's too bad the willfully ignorant have joined forces with the stupidly ignorant to keep us losing place.

They say it takes 3 to 5 days. As I understand it, a positive means the virus is currently active in the patient.

The other kind, the one that takes minutes uses whole blood as the sample, and determines if the patient has SARS-CO19 antibodies, meaning they had it at some time, but does not say if they have it now. It is less reliable than the nose swab test.

It seems to be the same in the UK and IMHO this type of testing is rubbish. If you get a "clear" result it just means you were free of the disease when the test was taken. You could have contracted it after leaving the test site and not be "clear" when the results come back.

To my mind all this talk of "do more tests" is just hype and a waste of money. I guess it does help with what to write on the death certificate.

If somebody tests positive you can isolate them preventing that person infecting several others. It is one of the most effective ways of controlling any infectious disease.

Yes some people will slip the net but the more testing and isolating you do the better the grip you have, if you don't test then everybody needs to isolate (lockdown) or the disease goes rampant. Don't forget that people will test positive, and be infectious, even though they think that they are well.

If you look at UK figures where testing is quite poor then around 40k people have died with positive Coronavirus tests. However the excess deaths over the same time period are around 60k.

Yes if you don't test then it is harder to pin the death on the virus but the excess death figures will eventually need to be explained and they do allow comparisons to be made between countries. Regardless of how a country fiddles its testing numbers a dead person is a dead person and it it very hard to explain away sudden large spikes.

The testing for somebody being currently infected is also important because it gives an indication of how rapidly the disease is spreading through the population and so lets you see the R number.

The antibody tests, to show how many people have had the disease, are useful because they show if you are achieving herd immunity. For herd immunity you need at least 60% of the population to have had the disease, and really you want 90%+.

In the UK they have been doing random antibody tests to try to assess herd immunity.
The last figure I saw was that they estimated that only 3.3M people out of a population of 67M had been infected. That is roughly 5% but there have been 60k deaths. Things are not that simple but very crudely using those figures you might expect 600k deaths and you would still have infected only 50% of the population and not achieved herd immunity to stop the spread. Hence lockdown, social distancing, masks and a scramble to get treatments and vaccines.

Coming out of lockdown is not because the virus has gone away, it is a political decision to trade off deaths against financial losses. The virus seems to like cold conditions hence the big outbreaks in meat packing plants in the USA, Germany and the UK. If the virus is still widespread come the winter there could be a further large outbreak.


As for the CV test first they stick the swab down your throat to tickle your tonsils then they stick the same swab, coated in tonsil juice, way up your nose till they tickle your brain.

Except that if you get it, you can get it again and how long before you can is not known. I get booster shots for Tetanus, the immunity wears off after about 5 years. We have people who have COVID-19 twice in months.

I'm glad we have testing. In 1666 England the Black Death test was the "ring around the rosie" and the hydrochloroquine of the day was Posey petals. The big break came when London mostly burned down and in end only people who kept their distance survived.

You can kvetch about the virus all you want but non-contact is the best weapon you have to avoid it.

That is undoubtedly true. But the converse is not true.

For example testing a careworker who needs to be in contact with vulnerable people provides no protection for the vulnerable people unless the test result is available immediately.

Frankly I suspect that all the people that are vulnerable to dying from this disease will eventually die from it - the only question is when. I know that is unfortunate - but that's nature red-in-tooth-and-claw. In the meantime everyone else is paying an enormous price so Governments can give the illusion that they are in control.

Testing allows government and hospital officials to be able to predict if / when the health care system will be overwhelmed so we can avoid things like this (https://www.google.com/search?q=houston+hospitals+overwhelmed).  It also allows long term planning such as making decisions about when to allow restaurants to open.

Testing allows contact tracing resources to be used most effectively.

Testing allows individuals to make an informed decision if they believe they've been exposed.  @ChrisTenone's son is a good example: Infected?  No.  Can go back to work without risking a whole lot of other people.

That's all-or-nothing thinking. If a careworker does test positive and gets quarantined then that careworker will not be affecting MORE people.

But hey, since you can have it and pass it before symptoms... all-or-nothing says there should be NO careworkers.

People vulnerable to COVID have died of other causes already. Cancer didn't stop killing people in March.

I dunno about the illusion of control since AFAIC our Idiot has been pushing for less control since February.

What's NOT an illusion is the number of hospitals either coping or not. If you still have a healthcare system, the spread is under some degree of control. I expect that new examples of what happens when it's lost in the US south especially Arizona, Texas, Florida and California.

We have a mini-surge here where the trend was going down steadily. We also have young idiots who haven't lost their invulnerable belief and our political nutcases still calling this a hoax. We also have people who think that spreading this will "kill more of THEM than US".

Distance and cleaning is my best chance until meds and/or a vaccine is developed. And about vaccines, the first polio vaccine wasn't so good but better than 'nuthin'. My sister born in 1945 told me about people here and there catching it like some evil lottery and then the first vaccine was a risk itself before the one we have now came out.

They "only" stand to lose a fraction of a percent of the population to reach that 70% where "herd immunity" will do what they didn't. And if herd immunity doesn't last as long as it takes to infect the herd then what?

What do you do when the people who manage an industry, the older ones with enough experience to do the jobs are enough of them gone? How many years to fill those gaps? Bean counters you can always get but the ones that direct manufacture aren't so common.

South Korea went in very heavily with testing, contact tracing and isolating right from the start. As a result their deaths are in the low hundreds and they have so far avoided a lockdown.

If you look at simulations isolating infected people and their contacts dampens disease spread rapidly.

Unfortunately the US and UK made a comple botch of testing and tracing and both are paying the price.
It looked like the UK had implemented an effective lockdown but it now seems to be throwing that away.

We have people brave or stupid or desperate enough to ride the buses here. I've been lucky and got rides.

The supermarket experience here goes between scary where young people walk through fast and violate distancing, they're too young to wait for room to clear. In another part of town people are careful and moving through the grocery store is a matter of waiting for a space to clear so you can move in to see what's in reach or moving just to clear space for someone else. .... and then I remembered those sliding tile magic square games from the 60's where one tile is missing and the object was to arrange the tiles, making the shopping experience unreal rather than scary.

We are working out the new normal(s) as a species, and we're slow off the mark. For decades now there have been worse and worse super-resistant bugs showing up at hospitals. With over 7 billion people, places are being poked into that had not been before. Have they ended Ebola in West Africa yet? No.
The new normal has to be epidemic-resistant and might, just might reduce the unthinking herd mentality especially after so many of those practicing it now will be catching it.

If people could be smart about it, the next demic like this will not be spread-aided by pre-COVID practices.

But IMO if people overall could be smart we wouldn't be in this situation. It would have been isolated last month if not sooner.

Every time I read about a minority getting the worst of of here, Trump does more to incite the spread.

So.... the second wave in America, to give credit where it's due I call it The Trump Fever.

Next time there is a new disease outbreak the country where it starts should be supported and financially rewarded to confine it there.

It would have been a great bargain if Britain could have paid £20billion to China to keep Covid-19 in China until it died out.

Coyotes invaded my home state and for a while there was a $75-a-head bounty until they caught guys raising coyotes, like a money tree only quicker.

Very similar story recently about farmers being paid a bounty to plant new trees, so they were clearing old forests to plant new trees.
Or the Leakeys in Kenya looking for ancient human fossils, offered a shilling for each fragment, so the local kids were breaking up large fossils to create more fragments...

Reminds me of a story about an AI flying a damaged spaceship with one human occupant;

Human: Can you regain directional control and get us into orbit?
AI: I would prefer to attempt a controlled landing.
Human: I can live with that.
AI: You also wish the landing to be survivable for you?

Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills, one man gathers what another man spills.

There's no way to delay that trouble comin every day.

@CB: He's not from around these parts.

@Larry: They are a group of "never Trump Republicans" who have been running very effective political ads against the  President. The membership includes George Conway, the husband of Trump mouthpiece Kelly Ann Conway. Like (Bill Clinton adviser) James Carville and (Bush's) Marilee Matlynn(sp?), I just don't get those couples!

The more money there is to steal, the more convoluted the heist.
