And yet people can endorse violence and receive zero punishment. 


I get where you are coming from and have wondered about this sort of thing in the past. The deal is that to get suspended or flat out banned by Twitter, I believe you generally have to get reported by another user. Donald Trump Jr. has more than 5,300,000 followers and his tweets get retweeted in high numbers. He's also a newsmaker and public figure which means his tweets will be seen not only by his followers but also by people who don't follow him or those that retweet his posts due to his tweets getting embedded into news stories and blog entries. 

So if he does something that Twitter considers out of line with respect to its rules, he stands a far greater chance of his tweets getting reported or being seen by whoever moderates and polices this stuff for Twitter than some knucklehead with 100 followers (most of which are friends, family, automatic followbacks from accounts he follows, and bots), that might say far worse, but will go unnoticed or barely noticed. I also would bet there is a grading curve of sorts in the sense that people with more followers, who therefore are perceived as being in a position to cause more damage, get treated with less leniency than some nobody. 

Was it due to calling Sandy Hook a false flag?  One of his followers tried to kill one of the "actors" for pretending their kid died at Sandy Hook.  Something like that... maybe?

Here in Maryland, 25% of the new COVID cases are among healthcare workers - the highest percentage of any profession. To me, this raises some questions...

1) Is the increase simply because the healthcare workers are at a higher risk of exposure since they encounter a number of COVID+ patients each day?

2) If masks are effective (especially hospital PPE masks), how are healthcare workers still getting infected since they are wearing PPE masks for nearly all their shifts? If PPE masks are not effective against COVID, how effective will our non-PPE masks be?

3) Why didn't healthcare workers have a higher COVID+ percentage when the virus first became an issue - especially when hospitals were having difficulties acquiring PPE?

Edit: Last seen at the Trump rally in Tulsa June 20, hospitalized on July 1.  The talking point amongst the QAnon people is that Cain died of natural causes or was poisoned and it's just being labeled a Covid death because they wanted to take out someone high profile (and preferably an Uncle Tom) to make Trump look bad.  They came up with all this in about 30 minutes.  Fascinating how their minds work.


I don't want to be all KGB(i mean it would be interesting for me and him to be in a room together discussing world views lmao) in this bitch, but how do we know he got that shit at Trump Rally, i mean he could have came home and called one of his side PAWGS over and fucked her brains out and got covid from her....

In all seriousness how do we just pinpoint that he got it from attending Trump's Rally and that is main consensus now?

P.S. His family better delete all those tweets taking shots at Covid calling it a hoax

We don't of course.  You almost never can say exactly where someone got it.  And no news source has said that he definitely got it there.  The timing fits perfectly though.  On June 20 he went to a mass gathering where no one wore masks and 11 days later he was hospitalized.  If you have bad results from Covid, it usually happens within 10-14 days.  The guy was 74 and survived stage 4 cancer.  If anyone was going to die from it, it was him.  It would be an understatement to say that he had to know he was risking his life going there if he had any brain cells at all.

So at least for us there are varying levels. If I have a Covid + patient, or what they call a rule out, I have to wear a N95, covered with a Level one, and gowned up and a face shield and gloves. All other patients are just level 3 mask and a level 1 mask and gloves. 
At least once a week though I get a call from my manger telling me someone i took care of who wasn't a positive or a rule out, came back positive after the fact (meaning they swabbed them in the ER, but it took 24 to 48 hrs to get the batch testing done since rapid tests are limited for emergent situations) So as an example I can think of, I had this guy last month who wasn't listed as a rule out. Just a reg patient. Guy coughed on me. I"m sure some of it got in my eye. Turned out he was positive after the fact. Now I didn't contract it...but there are situations like this where shit happens more often then not.

3 people in my wife's Baltimore office just got the COVID. They are a non-profit child/foster care, adoption company. They had to shut it down and wait for someone to come in and clean the office. What sucks about this is their driver might have been in 2 other Maryland offices the day before and might have gotten others ill.

Someone correct me if Im wrong but doesn't the 95 in a N95 mask stand for the percentage of particles filtered out above a certain size. So even with a 95% effectiveness, the risk has been minimized but not eliminated?

First dog in the US to test positive for COVID has died

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/first-dog-to-test-positive-for-covid-19-in-the-us-buddy-the-german-shepherd-has-died/ar-BB17o6eU?li=BBorjTa

Buddy, a 7-year-old German shepherd from Staten Island, New York, was the first dog to test positive for the coronavirus in the United States. He died on July 11 after a three-month illness, according to National Geographic. 

It's unclear whether Buddy died from complications of the coronavirus, which he most likely caught from his owner, Robert Mahoney, who tested positive this spring, or whether he died from lymphoma.


Two veterinarians who were not part of his treatment, but who reviewed Buddy's medical records for National Geographic, told the publication that the dog probably had cancer.


"It's unclear whether cancer made him more susceptible to contracting the coronavirus, or if the virus made him ill, or if it was just a case of coincidental timing," the magazine reported.

The dog got sick in April and Mahoney suspected he had the virus, but it wasn't until mid-May that the family finally found a vet who would test him and who confirmed Buddy was infected.

"You tell people that your dog was positive, and they look at you (as if you have) ten heads," owner and Robert Mahoney's wife, Allison, told the magazine.

By June 2, the US Department of Agriculture confirmed Buddy was the first dog to test positive for the coronavirus in the US.

"Samples from the dog were taken after it showed signs of respiratory illness," the USDA reported at the time. "The dog is expected to make a full recovery."

But that didn't happen. Buddy's health continued to deteriorate. By July 11, Allison Mahoney told National Geographic, she found Buddy throwing up clotted blood.


"It looked like it was his insides coming out. He had it all over. It was coming from his nose and mouth. We knew there was nothing that could be done for him from there. What are you going to do for a dog with this? But he had the will to live. He didn't want to go," she said. The Mahoneys decided the time had arrived to euthanize their beloved dog.

Fewer than 25 dogs and cats are confirmed to be infected with coronavirus in the US, according to the USDA.

There is no mandatory testing requirement for animals living in homes with Covid-19 positive people so it's unknown how many pets in the US may be infected and whether those with underlying health conditions, similar to humans, may be at higher risk.

"The second dog to test positive in the U.S., in Georgia, and the sixth dog, in South Carolina, have both died, for example, and their deaths were attributed to other conditions," National Geographic reported.


The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does offer guidance for caring for a pet with Covid-19 but it doesn't include information about testing or information collection for veterinarians as there's still no solid data on how the virus affects pets.

The Mahoney family is heartbroken by the loss of Buddy, National Geographic reported, and frustrated by their struggle to get the canine diagnosed and cared for.

"(Buddy) was the love of our lives. ... He brought joy to everybody. I can't wrap my head around it," Allison Mahoney said.

This is the kind of study we need to see much, much more of.  Until this year, we always calculated flu season deaths based on expected and excess deaths.  He's tried to do this, while taking into account all the unusual circumstances that have attended the meltdown of these past few months -- particularly the number of deaths that were caused by the lock down.  I wouldn't take this as gospel and I'd like to see others, several others, take a stab at these calculations and then try to average those results, but it's a start.  His conclusions are that we're at around 85,000 Covid-caused deaths and an IFR of about 0.18.  In other words, a bad flu season but nothing that justifies the panic and power grabs.  And given that the 2019 flu season was mild and that the 2020 flu season of Jan-Mar wasn't bad either, and that the average age of the Covid death is in the ballpark of 80, there's a fair case to be made that those deaths were catch-up deaths.  



I realize that's an eye-chart.  Here's the link:

"Mr President 1,000 americans are dying a day from the virus". Trump: "it is what it is. But look at these graphs" Today Trump could not pronounce "Yosemite". He said Yo-Semite". This is better than anything the WWE writers are doing.

A thousand a day across the entire country? How many days in a row? 


I didn’t read it but I saw a headline about California having the most cases now. Is that true? Do they know the reason? Edit- I found the article it was old news; 4th of July celebrations were the cause.

A yo-semite is the opposite of an anti-semite, so no one yo-semites better than Trump.

President Kushner agrees.
