NorKo Obituaries

Let’s come up with our own versions of Kim Jong-un’s WashPo obituary.

Kim Jong-un, an austere leader who at least never forced Lysol down the throats of his people, unlike our fascist president.

Do Tara Reade’s Allegations Matter?

I actually think that it doesn’t matter whether Tara Reade’s accusations are true.

I’m not going to vote for Biden under any scenario, so this is not partisan. I’m losing any interest in voting for Biden’s party ever again with every passing day, to be honest.

I think that Reade’s initial allegations of hair sniffling were true while the new ones about finger shoving aren’t.

But I don’t think it matters. It matters more than whatever was alleged against Brett Kavanaugh because Biden wasn’t a minor child at the time of the alleged events. He was in public life, a politician, and alleged to have abused an employee.

Still, I don’t think it matters because even if true, it was 30 years ago. What is the fear here? That Biden will start jumping on top of female employees if elected president? I don’t think the fellow can distinguish a woman from a potted plant at this point.

I sincerely don’t understand why the allegations that surfaced 2 minutes ago* about the events from before many voters were born are interesting or relevant. There are no criminal charges to be brought. The alleged victim didn’t think this was important enough to bring up until right now. And if she didn’t care, why should we?

I think there should be an expiration date on finger-shoving.

* I mean the assault allegations, not the original sniffing allegations about the kind of stuff that everybody has seen Biden do openly for decades.

How COVID Deaths Are Undercounted

Here’s some troubling news:

Ventura County’s coronavirus death toll increased to 16 on Thursday as county officials reported two additional deaths, including a 37-year-old man.

A 37-year-old! That’s very disturbing. And here we thought this was the disease that mostly affected the elderly.

Except there’s this (from the same article):

The man died as a result of a drug overdose while infected with COVID-19, a significant contributing condition, according to county spokeswoman Ashley Bautista. He is the youngest victim to die from the virus yet in the county. The other death recorded Thursday was a 99-year-old man.

So now drug addicts who overdose are considered COVID deaths. Of course, some states have evil Republican governors who forget to count every heroin overdose as COVID because they want us all to die immediately. That’s how COVID deaths get undercounted.

Here’s the link.

I very very highly recommend you look into who is dying and how the deaths are calculated where you live. I promise a lot of interesting discoveries like this one. I can’t post all of them because I have a life and a job (unlike many of the poor bastards who are being ruined by these inflated death counts). But please, please, pretty please read your local news sources.

Just for one week go on a news diet and read nothing on COVID except for scientific studies and local papers. Do it for the working classes you have spent your whole progressive life claiming to care about.

Real Mortality Rate

There have now been 4 large antibody testing sets:

  • Santa Clara County
  • LA
  • U of Miami
  • 3. New York

There have been doubts about the way the Santa Clara study attracted participants, so if you want, discount it. The U of Miami study, however, really went the extra mile to ensure that the samples are random.

However, very single one of these studies shows that COVID mortality rates should be revised to 0.5% – 0.1%.

Every single one of them shows infection rates gigantically higher than anybody expected.

All of this is really good news. A lot fewer people will get hurt or die than we originally thought! Woo-hoo!

I don’t know what else needs to happen to dislodge from people’s brains the completely erroneous idea about the 3% mortality rate.

COVID Read of the Day

An unrolled Twitter thread of a doctor who describes his evolution on COVID.

I’m only posting because this is one of dozens similar things I’ve seen. Obviously, it’s anecdotal, blah blah. But there is no anecdotal or any other kind of evidence of the opposite anywhere outside of 3 large cities.
