Not the Babylon Bee: "Baltimore Mayor Begs Residents To Stop Shooting Each Other So Hospital Beds Can Be Used For Coronavirus Patients"

Real headline, from CBS.

Baltimore Mayor Jack Young urged residents to put down their guns and heed orders to stay home after multiple people were shot Tuesday night amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Young said hospital beds are needed to treat positive COVID-19 patients and not for senseless violence.

Maybe they can put up signs declaring that Baltimore is a Murder Free Zone, and that any and all murders must take place at least 1000 yards outside the city limits.

You can ask your water company how long you can expect water pressure without grid power. They might answer you. The answer varies alot, and only they can really calculate it.

They think that the same soul that would easily take out a life of someone they know would act compassionately about a hypothetical bed space for a total stranger?

They assume that their target audience processes abstract thoughts and concepts?

The same amoral government that has zero problems crashing the economy, nationalizing whole industries, a throwing the planet into global Communism and on the trajectory to Venezuela for all but the Elites - wants criminals and psychopaths to be of higher character than the politicians that triggered this Greatest Hoax?

On the plus side, people in those areas have a much, much lower chance of contracting the virus, because of the limited contact with others. (Excepting unique outliers like the Aspen area, where a lot of people from outside the country show up and bring weird stuff with them)

213 One of the big health care organizations in Minnesota just designated one hospital as it Coronavirus hospital.

Bethesda Hospital in Saint Paul, a 90 bed hospital is emptying out and will be a Chinese Coronavirus only hospital. Just coincidentally, a few months ago, they submitted a license change proposal to make it a 50 bed hospital instead of a 90 beed hospital.

Want to bet it gets closed down after this is all over. "There were too many dead patients in the last year, and the hospital has a bad reputation."

This does make sense though. Keep all the contagious patients away from the people with broken bones and heart attacks .

You need to check yourself.

In 2006 an above-average flu season closed all the local hospitals.

Closed. Zero beds. Go somewhere else.

Your "logic" is exactly what leads to 1918-style mass die-offs.

You're so certain, so positive that it won't be that bad because God or CNN or someone has a slide show saying it's overblown.

Until it isn't.

No one has any idea where this is going, so the smart play is to take it as seriously as possible. If you don't do that up front, it's millions of dead.

I'm sorry about your inconvenience but the downside risk is literally a mass die off.

Markets can recover.

People can get new jobs.

________________

There's an optimistic article on Powerline, about a Nobel Prize-winning chemist who predicts the contagion will be gone in China by the end of March (based on the numbers he is plotting there and elsewhere).

He also says that there is good evidence that the majority of the world's population already has a natural immunity to the virus. In Wuhan, most of the population was probably exposed to the virus, but only 3% got sick. On the Diamond Princess cruise ship, everybody on board was exposed to it, but only 20% were infected. So the majority of people are not going to get infected, even if an infected person sneezes in their face.

Also read earlier this morning that a new test for the virus has been developed that gives results in 1/2 hour, and does not give a lot of false positives. And Fuji, the Japanese camera company, has a subsidiary that has developed a drug that is showing effectiveness in treating people sick with the virus. And of course yesterday several sources reported that some anti-viral drugs used to treat malaria and HIV have been effective in lessening the severity of symptoms of corona virus patients.

So there is good news out there. The media likes to keep people focused on the gloom and doom and worst-case scenarios, but there is good reason to believe that we are getting a handle on this, and the worst case is not going to happen.

Keep the faith. This will get better.

I can accept the Enemedia siding with China and blaming dark US forces that started this thing and framed China.

We just saw something just like that through the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax.

Let say that Hitlerly won in 2016. This engineered flu would have been the catalyst for the exact same thing that is happening today.

The difference between Trump and Hillary in this bold and deliberate execution of Cloward & Piven is that the gun owners in this country trust Trump and will allow Kudlow and others to nationalize whole industries in greater scope than the hostile takeover of Health Care by the Leftists.

GM was a test case. The Climate Change Hoax was a test case to see if people would believe any outrageous lie that require the population to live like paupers and serfs.

We proved that there is no atrocity that we would oppose. So they took the word "Climate Change". replaced it with "Coronavirus", telescoped the Doomsday calendar from years to days and prescribe the same remedy - bow down and worship the State.

This past two weeks we proved the theory that if gun owners trust a particular leader, then the US finally can be taken down and reduced to a New Soviet without a single shot fired.

The ovens will come later this summer, when they, like China start burning the bodies of dissidents "coronavirus victims".

And I am just waiting for the publication of subparagraph 75, footnote 27, line 86, fine print note, that all these sweet gummint checks are going to be means tested, so the millions of taxpayers that have paid into the system for decades, will wind up paying for the illegals, dopers, homeless, and bums to get a sweet check!

The IRS, by its own admission, pays out billions of dollars in "tax credits" every year to millions of illegal alien tax filers.

Illegal aliens file tax returns (so they can get the "tax credits" which are thinly-disguised welfare payments) by using an ITIN -- an individual taxpayer identification number. These are used by illegal aliens in place of SS numbers, and the IRS accepts that, knowing that many of these filers are illegal aliens working illegally in the U.S. The IRS issues ITIN's to anybody who asks for one -- no proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residence is required to get one.

355 "This is doubling the number of sick every 3-6 days."

we don't have all data, but one flaw in that is that many get mild cases never noticed ... many don't seem susceptible at all. So once it runs its course through an area ... it starts to level off ... that might be when only 10% have been infected and only 10% of those get sick enough to get tested. And only 10% of those go to the hospital ...

Places like S Korea ... the curve already dropped off, fewer are being infected ... not sure just what point that is, but we may be close to it ... or may reach it well before the millions start doubling ...


also every country has a different curve shape based on cleanliness/smoking/obesity ... and the curve can be flattened, and total infected can be made much less with various changes in action, better treatments, more educated society, "social distancing" etc.

455 Well, we lost 12,000 to H1N1 by doing nothing, and that was okay."

I remember the crazy around H1N1. Was returning home and had Dr Dean Edell on the radio yammering about how Tamilfu was this great fix for H1N1, but like we are lacking bedspace and ventilators today, they were rationing out Tamiflu. Only the rich and the connected could get it. (which I suppose will be how it plays out today with COVID-19).

So Edell was talking about how H1N1 was allegedly mutating and "evolving" and his solution to how to ration Tamiflu was this - and somehow he managed to keep his job on the radio: "Since Christians don't believe in Evolution, and H1N1 is evolving, these anti-science Christians should be denied Tamiflu so that others can receive it."

It was OK to discriminate then on ideology, it will be same if this thing goes sideways.

Did you suffer bouts of anguish at the 12k deaths of H1N1 in 2009?


No, you did not.


Nobody except those directly connected with them even noticed their passing.

517 501 Biden's in luck, winning big, and now doesn't have to make speeches or be seen much until the election. I hope Trump doesn't cancel the debates. They could use isolation chambers like in that old quiz show.

=================================

Biden doesn't have to do anything at all, just wait for the forecasted Q1 -5 GDP and Q2 -14!!! GDP to roll in.

There isn't an easier race to win that being Trump's opponent in November.

He has only the judiciary issue to run on now. Biden owns everything else.

519 You want to know the worst thing about being forced to wear a stupid surgical mask all fucking day?

I can't smile. Not to my coworkers. Not to my patients. Not to anyone. Not that I have a particularly nice smile. I just like to smile at people and feel the warmth when they smile back.

Fuck this.


Back when I had one of those "job" thingys, I'd wear a mask to grind parts. I drew a smile on it.

Drew a pig nose on one once, too.

There's some surge capability. Leaves can be canceled. Medical personnel can work longer shifts. Elective surgeries can be cancelled or deferred. Exactly what that gets us is the subject of some conjecture.

Staffing with reservists doesn't help that much unless they're retired. You're just pulling doctors out of civilian practice.

I still plan to get solar panels while there is ~25% rebate this year. They closed down our coal plant ... still should be plenty of power, but never know when so IL goon will start forcing rolling blackouts, just to preen for his fellow leftists. And then there are the crazy times like this ... unexpected intrusions. (some grid connected panels are useless when grid is down, but some can deliver at least 2000Watts ... during the day ... enough to do a lot) Self reliance ... they are forcing it on us

530 I don't understand why people cannot admit that they are making best guesses based on very limited data and assumptions, rather than meticulous models and calculations.
Posted by: bear with asymmetrical balls at March 18, 2020 07:40 PM (H5knJ)

I had an econ professor that enjoyed talking about his experiences being an expert witness. A lawyer would consult him for a case and he would respond with "tell what side you want to argue, and I'll make you a model to support it".

It's pretty simple to massage the numbers, emphasize certain things, downplay or outright ignore others and arrive at exactly the result you wanted. Hell, it's an obvious structural flaw in areas like environmental science now.

This is why I will always default to a skeptical view of all "scientific" claims even coming from supposed experts.

532 476 Jack that is my understanding of what the ship mission will be. To free up space in NY hospitals to care for corona cases and to provide emergency surgery facilities for heart and accident patients. Just like the did last year when they were deployed to Venezuela.

533 Just curious, since we're now conflating economic growth with human life.

Considering that the latest Coronavirus Bill includes money to fund Planned Parenthood.

Human life has no value unless it is chopped up into parts and auctioned off in trade for a Lamborghini.

535 This is true wherever the murder rates are sky high.

The murderers are minority and so are the victims. While the Democrat party aided and abetted by the Teacher's Union and the Federal and State Workers Union make sure that they stay in those vote ghettos.

Look for "UHT milk". Ultra high-temperature pasteurized. Same long shelf life, no refrig. Used to get it in Canada back in the 1980's for use in fly camps. Tasted OK.

Well, the AhwuFlu guy was rhapsodizing about sulfur dioxide plumes, which supposed only come from burning bodies, and linked to a sat image, which showed sulfur dioxide plumes from about a hundred sites in china alone, and even some over the Pacific Ocean.

Every coal-fired power plant will have a sulfur-dioxide plume at some scale.

True. The imagery was supposed to show a plume centered over Wuhan, in excess of what was normal, but I don't vouch for the accuracy of any of the sources.

544 Does anybody really believe that lawless people are going to cease fire over this virus? The drug pushers have ot make money. The drug addicts need their fix. If the addict doesn't have the money for a fix, he/she will rob, steal or panhandle to get the money. Meanwhile, the mayor wants cops to arrest people that are out walking their dogs or jogging..Criminals are going to use this COVID19 to their advantage. That's how they think.
