The smart capitalists are the ones that wear masks. They will survive the Capitalist Martyrs and buy their businesses for pennies on the dollar.

An “exponential outbreak”?!? The number of cases in Ohio continues to drop each day. I guess that could still be expressed exponentially, but the exponent would be less than one.

The article doesn’t even mention Ohio, why do you hang your hat on that state? It does mention: "nine states—Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas—reported either new single-day highs or set a record for seven-day new case averages"
So what’s yer point? trump regime criminal incompetence, or one-trick Pence propaganda, claiming “we are winning the fight against the invisible enemy.”? Pence is perhaps relying on his invisible savior beliefs and the "See no evil, Hear, no evil, Speak no evil stupidity and “religious” fantasy of his extremist ignorance, serving trump and betraying America for the umpteenth time…

So, you don’t see sick people dying from your back porch, therefore the virus is under control?
Ok, moving on…

And he still wears no mask, no social distancing. Guess he figures he will “pray” over all the dead bodies who are and will be prey to his fanaticism.

Is Ohio going to prevent people from traveling to any states where there is a rising outbreak? Is Ohio going to prevent people coming to your state from those who are seeing a rise? You forget there are no borders between states. Also, note that SARS-CoV-2 knows no borders and, while scientists are learning more about this new–novel–virus they do not know everything yet.

And he probably doesn’t believe there’s a new outbreak in China:

Wearing a mask stands in sharp contrast to the hyper-masculinity that the current fascist regime is trying to portray.
Besides, Pence is just biding his time, waiting for Jeebus to kill off or completely incapacitate poor dumb Donny. Then he can sweep into power in September or October and claim that god himself wants him to be POTUS and save the nation.

Jaysus, this boy doesn’t have the brains of a fencepost. Hell, he doesn’t even have the brains of a posthole. I’m pretty well convinced by now that his sycophancy toward T.rump is not an act. He’s one of the really, really stupid ones that thinks T.rump truly is a genius.

This guy really is in toenails fer brains territory.

I wonder if this is making the news over there:

…And they have a strong chance of defeating Biden as well. In short, corrupt, inept, criminal, and amoral is exactly what america wants and loves.

Let’s face it: Much of the US has moved on and simply incorporated the deaths of another 100,000 or so old, weak people into their near-term outlook. Across the globe, less developed countries are going to accept the same reality. This new steroid treatment is going to get the death rate down to .25% – even the supposedly “pro life” crowd will shrug that off.

If the hospitals ain’t overflowing, the average American says it ain’t worth knowing.

The Capitalist Final Solution. Your death is in the National Interest. Be thankful to give your life to save an Oligarch’s trillions.

Neighboring states should close their borders to people who attend. No, I don’t know how that would be enforced. Maybe some kind of nefarious license plate recognition stunt. Seems like both trump and pence attending is a perfectly marvelous idea in terms of keeping the heads of state healthy. That’s a joke, of course. Will they be signing that document releasing the govt of liability should they become ill with COVID-19? The trump needs to for sure because he surely lives to sue. I read that more than a few people who partied in Florida at a bar have gotten sick with the virus and are warning people against gathering without precautions or gathering in large numbers at all. It is pathetic that so many people would so blindly follow such a deranged megalomaniac. It speaks to their mindset and to their inability to think critically. How sad for this country.

For a guy who calls himself a Christian Pence has no trouble breaking the commandments. The guy lies like a rug. Is trying to keep up with his boss? Well, I’m afraid that is too tall an order.

Death rate of 4% who obtain the virus.
Will decrease if younger folks do get tested.
Make everyone happy.
Long term health effects not discussed yet.
Polio had life long negatives and did lead to early deaths.

If C-19 morphs a bit…

NY Times noted as government news.
Sad that they sway to obey
Not really OK

Wall Street Journal prints this drivel?

Shame on them.

COVID-19 kills lots of previously healthy people. Including babies who just a few hours before were happy and smiling and engaged with others. It rips through entire families, leaving only one or two survivors. They are not always the young ones, either.

To put it kindly, youre not very well informed about this hugely dangerous, unpredictable disease…
