Saturday Morning Coffee Break

EMT.jpg

(H/T WeirdDave)

***

Good morning gang. I think I resemble that pooch this morning. To the regulars you know the rules. To the new kids on the block, it's an open thread. Feel free to opine away and/or bloviate to your heart's content. No running with sharp objects. No pulling the 'ettes hair and be nice to one another.

Have a nice weekend!

10 Goodsky morningsky, all,

I got up, slopped the feline hogs, and washed the car. Shortly I'm running out to the 'burbs for a haircut, and Linda wants to use a coupon at an Ulta store out there. The problem is that it doesn't open until 11, and we really don't have many air-conditioned places to kill 90 minutes in after my barber visit.

Yeah, I know, first-world problem . . . but it's *hot* here.

15 Huh, willowed.

Anyhow, I think you should carry whenever possible, but that having lots of spare mags on you looks a bit sketchy. Hard to explain how you weren't out looking for trouble when you've got 30-50 rounds on you.

For those worried about a serious incident where you may need more, I suggest having the mag or ammo in the car where one can credibly explain that it's leftover from your practice session at the range.

Kansas City mayor Lucas decreed that face masks are mandatory beginning Monday until July 12th. The date can be changed if he feels like it. I scoured the FAQ and it does NOT mentioned my burg unlike before when the lockdown affected all of Jackson, Clay and Platte counties.

Very wet spring here, finally starting to dry out. Rain barrel got a little low a week ago but it's topped off after last night. I filled some empty jugs as a hedge against dry weather in July and August.

We've never done a garden this elaborate so it's interesting seeing what is coming up. Some of the herbs never took, but the tomatoes, peppers, corn, carrots and squash are doing fine. The sunflowers would be doing fine but the deer are eating them.

The first year we lived here I planted tomatoes, carrots and squash and all did really well. Best carrots I've ever tasted. Hard to explain, but super-er, carroty.

58 in Iowa, Trump won with over 97% of the vote
and set a turnout record for an incumbent president.

In New Hampshire, he received nearly 130,000 votes, more than doubling the totals of former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush in their reelection campaigns.

And in Texas, Trump received nearly 1.9 million votes, more than tripling what Obama received in 2012.

59 On thing I think is getting lost in all of this is how the left is effectively destroying itself.

Think about it: the left's bastions of power are incredibly fragile. Higher education, online services, trendy non-profits, and bloated bureaucracies can only exist in a super-affluent society with lots of excess cash.

As soon as that sense of safety evaporates, donations dry up, people consider community college/skilled trades, etc. The universities are already cutting salaries. There are people seriously arguing that we should close school buildings permanently, and abolish dorms.

That's basically a death sentence to liberal college towns.

Same with pro sports. They're woke at precisely the moment where their seasons are being canceled.

Movie theaters are closed and may never reopen. Streaming will never have the cultural impact of big-tent movies. Opening weekends and the cash surge will disappear since people will simply add the new thing to their playlist and get to it later.

Basically, they can't win and their current spasm is just causing them to burn out even faster.

64 Willowed, about WuFlu case count, damned lies about case count, and panic about damned lies about case count:

In mid-March I told my friends that eventually, everyone in the country will inhale some of the damned virus cells. Those who it can make sick, will get sick. Those who it cannot make sick will not get sick. I believe my prognosis is still valid. I will bet my house that Fauchi, Birx, and all the other docs know this and have told Trump, but they don't believe the citizenry can handle the truth. Their plan is to string-out the sicknesses at a non-hospital-clogging level, using closures, until a vaccine is miraculously available.

Flattening the curve was only a stop-gap. All it did, and all these new bar closures will do, is change the shape of the curve of number of sicknesses over time. Social distancing and mask-wearing will not change the area under the curve - total sicknesses in the US - without a vaccine or a different miracle.

The only truly good news is that the docs are doing everything they can to reduce deaths, using Remdesivir, hydroxychloroquine, and other stuff on those who get sick. This could be a much larger factor in the death rate being reduced than lockdown theater is.

For a while there was a lot of press, a lot of pictures of him with dems and talk about his visits to Cordray (CFPB). He was indicted, then out on bail, was supposed to be tried early in 2019.

He was the guy who orchestrated the attack on Tucker's house.

Good Morning.
Very,very dry here and hot. Weather says thundershowers next 5 days but not steady rain. This is my last summer in this house so was hoping for some spectacular gardens, but too hot to work outside.
I did hire a mover yesterday so one problem solved. I just hope I'm able to secure an apartment when I head to DC in July.
Anyone got a spare room just in case?

91 Falling Masks

I see all these comments about the Texas Kung Flu rates and the Texas Gov's vacillating edicts... but up here in Texas's topper, I don't really see news of my Oklahome state. No news is good news, I guess.

AFAIK, our new Gov. Stitt (R) has not been a manic tyrant about things, not even so much as Abbot.

Our state 'shutdown' was relatively brief, the 'reopening' seems to be scattered, but steady. Some restaurants limiting customers and staff masked, others no limits no masks. Hooray for the freedom for businesses to choose, such as it is considering law and liability.

Mostly, folks I run into are laughing it off now. There's still lots of folks spooked, maybe even an uptick in the masked shoppers, and businesses esp restaurants remain wary, but AFAIK we don't have any mask requirements or assembly limitations.

I'm free to fantasize that government is advisory not dictatorial, that government is subject not citizens. (Waves flag, hums anthem.)

Of course, I'm in Smallville, not Oil City or Cow Town where the collectivists cluster, but from what I read of how other states are run, figure we're doing pretty well.

To every bank clerk, grocery checker, bartender and pizza delivery gal still required by their bosses to wear a mask, I say, with a cheery smile, "Hope they let you breathe again soon!"

I have yet to have anyone reply with anything else but, basically, an amen!

I wonder if one of them will be the Col. Gray who was in command of the BCT of the 101st Airborne in Kirkuk, early 2006. Because he's the guy who ordered us not to roll up a certain sheik we'd photographed meeting known insurgent leaders on his front porch. The Colonel, you see, felt he had a good relationship with the sheik and didn't want feathers ruffled.

The United States military is so big and has so many resources that you be a complete useless assbag and it winds up not mattering in the long run. Oh, you fucked up and let insurgents take over a stretch of MSR Clemson and murder all the Iraqi Army soldiers at the checkpoints? Meh, go send some guys and get it back. Oh, insurgents took over an entire city because we couldn't be assed to pay attention? Send a few battalions of Marines, they'll fix it.

This is a group of people who award each other Bronze Stars for completing a deployment (just so you know: A Bronze Star without a 'V' device is utterly meaningless today, for that reason). It's a corporation. My last company commander was a staff career climber. At the ceremony where he took command he flat out told us he was there because he needed a combat command hitch.

106 I was very disturbed by a comment made by a caller to Levin the other day. The caller was convinced Biden would be the "October surprise" by dropping out of the race due to a "health problem" --whether acknowledging his cognitive decline or other. Then the "rescue" candidate of Mooch, Hillary or God know what rough beach slouching towards Bethlehem...

The nagging anxiety this gives me is how perfectly this would negate Trumps current, and typical, campaign strategy, and take advantage of the Democrat structural advantages in terms of the MSM.

Think about it. DJT spends the next two months bashing "sleepy Joe" and talking about his cognitive decline. Sleepy Joe makes an appearance in press conference in October, acknowledging a decline, taking a "brave stand for the good of the country" and bows out to some POS commie darling of the left. While doing it, he somberly reflects on Trumps cruelty in making fun of such a devastating yada yada that affects so many elderly.

So all Trumps attacks come to nothing, and don't leave a scratch on the new opponent, and may only generate a mild negative impact in the older voters and emotion driven wine Moms.

There is "no time" to debate the new candidate. So all further campaigning, such as it is, is now filtered through the MSM, and it becomes a pure media campaign.

This would be the classic leftist tactic of disarming the opposition, and could be quite effective. It is also deviously consistent with Biden's "bunker" /non-campaign. I think they may be deliberately avoiding having Biden take up too much oxygen in terms of personalizing the race, if this is the ultimate plan.

DJT must get his own message out there, and run on his message. If there is to be negative campaigning, it must be about slamming the ideas of the left, and be contrasted with the core concepts of preserving America itself which is very much under attack.

The upper leadership has a serious credibility program. The left thinks only in terms of credentials, not understanding that at a certain point, no one cares what paper you have on your wall if you're totally incompetent.

Trump has already demonstrated his kill-shot: what war have you guys won? You had 20 years and the most powerful military on the planet, and what did that get us?

On the first day of a planning course, the instructor asked for a show of hands. "How many people think the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have been well-planned?"

Zero hands went up.

So the Dems can bring out dozens of generals to say Trump is a bad man and his evastaing response will be "what have you done other than get our troops killed?"

They have successfully shivved a lot of law enforcement and they are working, with little opposition, to dismantle history. There are books you need to get rid of, statues that need to be demolished, people getting attacked with no police response, and the press who expressed some worry about antifa in 2018, now do nothing when Nadler calls them imaginary?

I've never been to college, but these departments strike me as being similar to safety departments in industry. Every company does the song and dance about workplace safety: People are our most important asset, do it safely or not at all, the job is only successful if no one gets hurt, etcetera. There are posters, there is mandatory training, there is paperwork for days.

And then you get out in the field and you... Well, you do what you have to do, because at the end of the day all these people *actually* care about is fucking dollars. "Where's the safety guy?" "In the galley." "Good. Hold this fucking thing and we'll swap it out. Here. Fucking hide this."

They're also the first ones cut when times get tight, because corporate actually considers them to be freeloading dead weight and hates having to be reminded that little inconvenient things like workplace safety laws exist and have to be complied with.

116 Was catching up with Rush from Friday. As usual, I feel he had great insights into our current situation. For all those thinking that Trump "needs" to do something about statue destruction, rioting etc. Rush pointed out that even walking to a church with a member of the military turned into a fiasco. With the general saying he was sorry etc. And then, as noted above, you have ex-military generals questioning Trumps competence. What these mayors/governors want, is for Trump to call in the military/NG. And here was Rush' insight, then, given our current military leaders, the military says no. Then Trump is standing there neutered by his own military. And Rush did not say this, but just to add insult, whatever BLM/Antifa situation then resolves either by normal entropy/they stand down, showing Trump is insane to have wanted a military response.

146 The well connected Alcoff has disappeared down the memory hole. - Tucker might know where he is.

"and he had met with senior officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau [CFPB] from 2016-18. According to Fox News:

ntil recently [Alcoff] was a well-connected, aspiring political player in Washington who may have even had a hand in key policy proposals. His endorsement apparently mattered when several congressional Democrats in February 2018 issued press releases with his quote backing their bill on regulating payday lenders.

He was also pictured with now-House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking Democrat on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio.

Both committees oversee financial regulatory policies Alcoff was advocating. Alcoff met with then CFPB Director Richard Cordray and other senior CFPB officials [in] April 2016, again in March 2017, and a third time in May 2017

A lot of people are looking at this stuff emotionally and symbolically, but I'm looking at the logistics.

There is finite cash out there to support this nonsense. Even Soros' pockets aren't infinite. How many months can they sustain this operational tempo? You say "forever" but no operation goes on forever. There's a buildup and then you burn through your reserves. They are in full mobilization mode right now, and they cannot keep it going for month after month.

Trump knows this, and so he plays a very devious game, goading them with threats to use force, which in turn cause them to try to amp up their activity, burning through their reserves even *faster.*

148 I'm starting to see the reductions here in the local college in my town.
Most staff laid off, the avaiation training department is being shut down. Aircraft, space at the local airport, simulators all being returned to the companies they were leased from.
Students were notified at the same time as the staff.
The staff has reacted with an open letter in the local fish wrap about how unfair it is and how they weren't included in the decision.
Bite me.
I've been laid off in my past. No one gave a red rat's ass about my situation. University staff, meet, the real world where you're opinions don't matter and your feelings are unimmportant to the bottom line.

158 ...There is "no time" to debate the new candidate. So all further campaigning, such as it is, is now filtered through the MSM, and it becomes a pure media campaign.

This would be the classic leftist tactic of disarming the opposition, and could be quite effective. It is also deviously consistent with Biden's "bunker" /non-campaign. I think they may be deliberately avoiding having Biden take up too much oxygen in terms of personalizing the race, if this is the ultimate plan.

DJT must get his own message out there, and run on his message. If there is to be negative campaigning, it must be about slamming the ideas of the left, and be contrasted with the core concepts of preserving America itself which is very much under attack.

IMO, only the coverage from PROGDA is blossoming. I see the death throes of progressivism. It won't be pretty but I think enough LIV's are seeing what voting Democrat gets them. TuCa is the biggest voice exposing what's really going on. The 911 call from the lady who was being attacked in her car when the dispatcher told her to "call city hall" was devastating.

PDT just needs to keep hammering them and their support for the Marxists like BLM regardless of who winds up being the Dem on November's ballot. KMac reminded the press corpse that it was the local mayors and governors who are responsible for safety.

One more thing: we now know who's running BLM. They'll make very inviting targets if they keep their antics up for much longer.

We just need to be patient. Whichever way this goes, we Normals won't have to put up with this for much longer. Let the Dem voters suffer for a while.

Laws are just pieces of paper sitting there at the discretion of Soros appointed DAs and in the in-box of an overburdened DOJ sitting in Washington, unless there is a scaleable mechanism put in place for real-time response.

Like they did with Covid, I think there would be real need for some type of functioning task force, with a real mandate to get er done yesterday to come up with a mechanism to put in place lines of communication from local LE to local units of the feds, who will deputize local LE to move into action under federal mandate.

Prosecutions can have deterrent value, but how many months will go by until a meaningful cohort of actual criminal convictions take place to influence the risk/benefit of the mob?

It will be interesting to see how the now-mandatory laboratory classes, in engineering, chemistry, and all or most physical sciences programs, will be handled as colleges go to on-line classes.

Those hands-on lab classes could be done away with, assuming industry is OK with hiring people without any hands-on experience. Or a number of colleges could join together and open a network of college lab class facilities within a state or region. For that to work, there would really need to be a nationwide network of those labs, all spaced no more than two hours or so driving time apart.

199 116 Was catching up with Rush from Friday. As usual, I feel he had great insights into our current situation. For all those thinking that Trump "needs" to do something about statue destruction, rioting etc. Rush pointed out that even walking to a church with a member of the military turned into a fiasco. With the general saying he was sorry etc. And then, as noted above, you have ex-military generals questioning Trumps competence. What these mayors/governors want, is for Trump to call in the military/NG. And here was Rush' insight, then, given our current military leaders, the military says no. Then Trump is standing there neutered by his own military. And Rush did not say this, but just to add insult, whatever BLM/Antifa situation then resolves either by normal entropy/they stand down, showing Trump is insane to have wanted a military response.
Posted by: MikeM at June 27, 2020 09:25 AM (bw5hz)

This.

The upper echelons of our military encompass the political spectrum from Democratic Socialism to Communism. If an avowed, out-and-proud Marxist can graduate from West Point (!), we know that the entire institution has jumped the shark.

I listen to Bloomberg News regularly. James Stavridis was a supreme NATO commander, and regular military commenter for B'berg. He calls himself a 'centrist', but I've never heard him express anything close to a conservative thought. He even misrepresented the nature and number of times that the US President has invoked the Insurrection Act in a recent editorial column.

I have no doubt that he speaks for most of the active senior generals in the military from his perch outside of it when he calls Trump an illegitimate president, not worthy of following from a military standpoint.

Trump knows this as well, because he's shown that he has better military judgment than all of them with regards to Syria, Russia, Turkey, ISIS/ISIL, and NATO. They can't stand that.

The first opportunity they have to undermine him, they'll take it. They want nothing more than to be left alone, and a President Biden will do nothing to rein them in.

... except your site won't let me link to a not-very-long URL, why not. Anyway, go to archiveofourown.org, and in the search bar type in the author's name (Adina) and the story title (Green Ice.) It features Lord Peter Wimsey and Bertie Wooster (though written from Bertie's POV)
is set at Brinkley Court, and involves the Attenbury Emeralds. The author is obviously young and there are a few anachronistic slips - a woman referred to as Ms. Somebody - but it is so good that it won't bother you. Bonus: we find out why Bertie never mentions the Great War. Happy reading.

Speaking of which, does anyone remember going to the swimming pool and jumping off the high diving board to make a big splash? Cannonballs didn't really do it but going in the water at an angle while staying somewhat vertcal produced splashes that went really high. I never had it explained to me why through physics that happened but it just did and didn't argue with reality. I'll see if I can find anything online.

I would probably buy these bonds, if the yield is high enough.

The right thing to do, once these states run out of BS to peddle investors, would be to declare bankruptcy so the bonds go to zero.

Problem with that is that the rating agencies make lots of money rating bonds, and as they get paid by the issuer there's no incentive for them to tell the truth about the rot in the muni finances.

If, by some freakish Black Swan incidence, a state were to declare bankruptcy to escape from their pension obligations, it's a whole new world regarding whether the Feds will serve as a backstop. My guess is that there is absolutely no will in Congress or the Senate to let a state die. We don't even know what that really means, and a court test of the concept would take years after such an event.

The Ford to NYC moment did focus public and private entities to get their act together, and Felix Rohayton deserves a lot of the credit for getting the finance sector on board. Unfortunately, he's dead, and there's nobody around that can pull that off the way he could, but I digress.

279 municipal bonds are considered safe because they are backed by tax revenues that are expected to rise due to the things the state is supposed to be doing, or that the issuer will honor the bond no matter what

But these aren't being issued to cover improvements, they are being issued to cover pension and operation costs because they can't cover those obligations today by simple taxes and fees. Also, right now the cities, counties and states are all ignoring their obligations they took on about safety, health and economic prosperity so future revenue looks pretty bad. The only backstop is that the Feds will step in and rescue them by paying off the creditors.

I have said this for 12 years, this is going to end in hyperinflation or default. I vote for default.

Posted by: Krebs v Carnot: Epic Battle of the Cycling Stars (TM) at June 27, 2020 10:07 AM (pNxlR)

Speaking of which, does anyone remember going to the swimming pool and jumping off the high diving board to make a big splash? Cannonballs didn't really do it but going in the water at an angle while staying somewhat vertcal produced splashes that went really high. I never had it explained to me why through physics that happened but it just did and didn't argue with reality. I'll see if I can find anything online.

288 Assuming Trump wins and we at least keep the Senate, if not retake the House the states are screwed. They won't get bailed out. Since they cannot declare bankruptcy they are going to have to cut services. Police and fire will be first. Social justice and teachers will be last.
Day to day maintenance will be gone.Taxes will skyrocket and businesses will close or leave.
It's a death spiral of sorts. If, whoever the D's run wins, or they hold the House and take the Senate, the feds will cover the spendthrift ways until teh printing presses run out of ink.

This is probably the main reason why our decision to get involved in the middle east was such a disaster.

We created a class of officers who live for the purpose of gobbling up men and material, and sending them into danger zones.

296 Seattle City Workers Move To Clear Autonomous Zone, Leave After Activist Draws Gun

https://bit.ly/3g4E2as

Seattle, WA - Protesters stopped city crews from removing the barricades blocking the six blocks that surround the Seattle Police Department's East Precinct on Friday morning by lying in the road and brandishing a firearm.

KOMO reported that people laid down in the street to block equipment and at least one weapon was drawn by protesters in the Capital Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), formerly known as the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), when city crews arrived to begin cleaning up that area on June 26.

Self-appointed leaders of the CHOP have told city officials that they will not relinquish the occupied zone until their list of demands has been met, KOMO reported.


Um, these are NOT protesters anymore. They are domestic terrorists at worst, criminal lawbreakers at best, who are occupying private property.

No brains, no family, no skills, no future, lots of incomplete degrees they started and got into impossible debt over, no real direction, lots of drug use, no understanding of how to resolve and conflict, no future planning abilities fir a future they really don't have, a history of small scale violence and assault, and a drumbeat of "they are keeping it from you, go take it, it is unfair"

They saw Bernie as the way to get equalization.

I am not saying they aren't dangerous, but they are a wonderful way of showing that our system of raising and educating kids has failed.

It's WA state. The county health departments have vast power here and often use it to attain more power and to climb the political ladder.
New wells are a health issue out here. Private property be damned. We also have a three tiered system for water access. Water access means building or not building. If your property is in a Red Zone, no wells for you. Want a cistern? It has to be filled by county health dept. approved suppliers and be inspected annually by said health dept.
Naturally, water rights is a big issue and older properties with senior water rights defend those to the death and state law is generally on their side.

In the Northwest, especially in WA, but to a degree in OR, All Water Belongs To The State. full stop.

If you ignore this, they will fine you. If you don't pay the fine and desist, they will continue to fine you, seize your bank account and stocks, and garnish your wages. If you don't have any the Sheriff will seize property, from your safety deposit box to your house, for auction to pay off the fines and interest and the cost of the seizure and auction.
If you build retaining ponds in Washington without a permit they may put you in jail.


Water is a big thing in Oregon, especially in the Willamette Valley where it rains a lot. In Salem Oregon last year, oddly since it was not a hot summer, the state declared a water emergency due to 'cyanobacteria' that they claimed could not be filtered out of the water supply. they had to get water for drinking at city water trucks. Plandemic reminds me of that little incident.

Mill City, which uses the same water source, said they didn't worry since unlike Salem they improved their water treatment plant and could deal with bacteria.

Salem, having dealt with this emergency, I believe, has done jack-all about it, either because they are corrupt incompetent thieves, find it convenient to oppress their voters and taxpayers, or it is impossible to fix imaginary problems by actual infrastructure improvement.

Something else to consider is the fact that Trump has heaped praise on governors like Cuomo and Murphy--and they--for the most part--have refrained from attacking Trump.
But that time will come and the minute these two asshats start complaining about Trump's response to their fiscal needs, he's going to let loose with the needless nursing home deaths in both states.

348 The D's are getting frantic - the riots are petering out (they didn't get the Kent State incident that they were hoping for), and the economy is recovering, so of course they are trying to induce panic by claiming a "second wave" of CCP virus to get everything shut down again.

I don't know. Will most of the sheeple go along with the "second wave" BS--if it causes fresh new lock downs just when people are just being allowed to move about freely?
I have my doubts.

Don't have to. ADA protects that information short of a criminal trial and Judge ordered release of the info, and then only a very few select people can see it even if it gets released. And if they keep asking you for it they can be fined.

The bars in inner Portland were packed last night, in neighborhoods that are 95% Leftist. Good luck closing the bars again.

And the State of Oregon says that there is little evidence that the month-long nightly mass demonstrations have spread the CCP virus, so I assume that mass outdoor gatherings are now OK.

356 Stupid Question, but needs to be asked.

Where in the heck is the Department of Homeland Security?

They ain't working the borders or the airports right now. And the whole point and purpose of that department was specifically deal with terrorism and domestic upheaval.

I haven't found any news on that august group in many months. I assume they are still gulping down billions of tax dollars.

Department of Justice.

Homeland Security... yeah. Sure. That's what we do.

358 I agree completely with the poster way above who said that the Democrats are going to pull a bait and switch at the last minute and and replace Biden with someone that the media can then glorify. Trump should stop talking about Slow Joe being so slow--and "shot"--and stick to what damage Joe and the Democrats would cause if he were actually elected.

The thing I am amazed by is the secrecy. Going back to Occupy or forward to this outbreak, I have not heard much about how such people are paid/organized etc. I would think that the people described above, street people etc., would welcome a bit of money to explain how it is that they are at protests in different states. I know that the leaders can/will keep their mouths shut. But some of the underlings? I do not see those stories anywhere. You would think some enterprising journalist would offer some money to some people along the fringes of a protest to discover their stories.

That's why you must factor this into any poll that shows Trump getting low marks for his handling of this.
The criticism is also coming from people who intend to vote for him no matter what.

Texas closed all bars again because of spikes in Cities that had riots. The Governor blamed the spike on people congregating in bars so he ordered them all shut at noon yesterday with zero notice.


A little more than two weeks ago he went on TV and said he would not do a State wide closure stuff again but he would do that for any hotspots that flared up.


He also has limited any public gathering to 100 or less.

All of this because four Counties where they had massive riots are seeing spiking numbers.

369 The bars in inner Portland were packed last night, in neighborhoods that are 95% Leftist. Good luck closing the bars again.

I'm revisiting my criticism of Texas governor Abbott w/r/t closing bars because of the 'rona scam.

He is hitting those traitorous bastards right in the mouth. With the schools closed and now the bars, it makes it more difficult for these punks to find hook-ups and co-conspirators. Keep them sexually frustrated, socially isolated and force them to use digital (trackable) means to conduct their business.

I mean if We The People are now cool without a functional Constitution, government and community...

Spiking "cases" which is not to be confused with hospitalizations or deaths.

Spiking cases just means more tests within a time-window have come up positive. Something completely natural and expected when one ramps up testing by over 40%.

Several generations of a criminally negligent K-12 "edujmakashun" cartel does tend to leave society, at all levels, with an innumerate population and government.

in Iowa, Trump won with over 97% of the vote

and set a turnout record for an incumbent president.



In New Hampshire, he received nearly 130,000 votes, more than
doubling the totals of former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush
in their reelection campaigns.



And in Texas, Trump received nearly 1.9 million votes, more than tripling what Obama received in 2012.
