Was That Haircut Worth it, Possum Hollar?

That hair wasn’t teased, it was cruelly bullied.

Coronavirus infections jump by more than a million in less than two weeks

As U.S. states and countries across the world seek to rejuvenate their economies, coronavirus infections continue to spread, with more than a million infections reported world-wide in less than two weeks.

Globally, there have been more than 5.1 million recorded cases of the virus, up from 3.85 million two weeks ago, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, and more than 333,000 deaths.

In the U.S., there have been nearly 1.58 million confirmed infections. The death toll passed 94,700, including 1,222 deaths recorded between 8 p.m. Wednesday and the same time Thursday, a Wall Street Journal analysis of Johns Hopkins data showed.

  1. I don’t understand why they just don’t stop this thing in it’s tracks…according to all the reliable sources all we have to do is stop testing people and hide the dead bodies and poof! it’s gone!

      Yeah – like the meme making the rounds, of the nurse saying, “You’re not pregnant if you don’t take the pregnancy test.”

      Tucson area residents are waiting longer for their UPS deliveries because 36 of their 250 drivers have the virus. Governors can hide the numbers all they want, but people are still going to notice.

      You can’t hide that many bodies.

      We’re gonna have to burn them. Central locations in each town would make it convenient.

      Just drive up, toss granny and Chester in the pit, grab your receipt and you’re off to league night at the Bowl-O-Rama.

    And now the Asshole-in-Chief declared that religious institutions are officially open under his order. He provided zero guidelines or suggestions, but he declared that if governors tried to stop the openings, he would override them, Um, he can’t do that, but of course he believes that he can. Just like when he says the pandemic is over.

    He is in such complete denial about the progression of the virus that he can’t go back or concede his willful ignorance of what has happened and what will happen next. The numbers mean nothing to him.

      Disgusting. From what I’m hearing, the comparison is if bars and abortion clinics are essential then so are churches. He conveniently leaves out that the bars can sell package liquor only and that the abortions that are occurring are most likely done to save the life of the mother. So piss on this weird version of conscientious conservatism.

        What part of Social Distancing, not being in crowds, and keeping one’s yap closed and behind a mask baffles him?

        The part where you have any concern for anyone else. Also, that part about keeping your yap close is like an alien language suggestion to that one. It’s like asking him to stop sweating or something.

    “My fellow Americans, it is vitally important for us to gather together at our selected places of worship this Sunday, and pray. My religious advisers have assured me that prayer IS one of the most effective ways of dealing with this, this Virus, this scourge that is laying our great country low, so I’m insisting that your Governors open up your churches this Sunday, for us to reach out to Almighty God together, and implore him to intercede on our behalf. It’s also very important that we pray for a resurgence in our Economy, so we can come roaring back bigger and better than ever before, which benefits everyone.
    But most of all pray that I can begin holding my rallies again, so that I can reassure my wonderful American citizens of the tremendous job I’ve done, will continue to do, and give the people something that they can hold on to, while I alone reunite the USA.”

      Oh, sure, that’s how it was written but before you know it the speech will turn into talk about negative positives and vice versa, although you know that vice is a very bad thing unless he’s the one doing or selling the vice, and then it’s beautiful, like a slice of chocolate cake or a dressing room full of young women.
      And et cetera, and yadda yadda, catchphrase #1, catchphrase #8, and so on.

    I think I’m going to call my local Health Department with the following recommendation.

    Please place the following sign at the entrance of all open churches:

    REPUBLICANS WELCOME! MASKS NOT REQUIRED. GIVE US A HUG

    DEMOCRATS UNWELCOME!! ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. VIRUS TRANSMISSION IN PROGRESS……………………..U Can’t Touch This.

    The only thing missing from streamed church services is the collection plate.
