It’s really hard to not read all the bad news:

CDC says U.S. has ‘way too much virus’ to control pandemic as cases surge across country

“The coronavirus is spreading too rapidly and too broadly for the U.S. to bring it under control, Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Monday…

“We’re not in the situation of New Zealand or Singapore or Korea where a new case is rapidly identified and all the contacts are traced and people are isolated who are sick and people who are exposed are quarantined and they can keep things under control,” she said in an interview with The Journal of the American Medical Association’s Dr. Howard Bauchner. “We have way too much virus across the country for that right now, so it’s very discouraging.”

You can say that again, sister. But you don’t have to. Dr. Fauci did it for you:

“New cases of Covid-19 could rise to 100,000 a day if behaviors don’t change, infectious-disease expert Anthony Fauci told a Senate panel Tuesday.

“Several southern and western states are seeing surging new case numbers, prompting some to put reopening plans on hold.

“The numbers speak for themselves. I’m very concerned. I’m not satisfied with what’s going on because we’re going in the wrong direction,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said. “Clearly we are not in total control right now.”

“Fauci said he wouldn’t be surprised to see new cases rise by 100,000 a day if recent surges don’t turn around, up from the current level of about 40,000 a day. As for the number of deaths, “it is going to be very disturbing, I guarantee you that,” he said.”

All the selfish bastards that ran screaming Freedumb are directly to blame for our unfathomable situation. I understand that for our own sake we need them to get on-board with all the protocols, but I know that they won’t. It’s a lost cause. I just hope that they die off quickly before they infect innocent people.

Thanks a lot, Possum Hollar.

    And on a totally-related issue, Boeing has announced it will once again be flying the 737, “…now that we know Americans are totally cool with thousands and thousands of deaths every day,” said Boeing CEO David (vs. Goliath) Calhoun. “This same Virus I was sure was going to bankrupt us is now going to be responsible for a 180 turnaround, and it will, in fact, save this great American company, and just in the nick of time, too.”

    [Later, outside: “What do you MEAN, all flights to Europe have been cancelled indefinitely?!?!?!

    Who knew the price of freedom would be so high as to require the sacrifice of 100’s of 1,000’s of lives?
    I sure don’t relish getting sick and dying so cletus doesn’t have to go back through the drive through and Brandene gets her nails done.

    New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea aren’t inhabited by CHUDs who are threatening to shoot contact tracers.

    Horrifying. What does an ordinary citizen say when the experts say we’ve “lost control” of the virus? Do the math. 100,000 a day means 3,000,000 a month means 36,000,000 a year! That’s almost 10% of the population!

    Is it time for the Orange Traitor to start wearing a mask?

    Not to quibble with your point, I agree, but I think you’re misplacing the blame a bit.

    Yes, they’re a problem. But it’s not like the ‘masks are tyranny’ idea fell out of the sky all at once into millions of maga minds, or bubbled up organically from their collective consciousness. That idea was put there, systematically, by easily identified agents. As followers these maga morons certainly rate some blaming and shaming. But the real blame–and by that I mean full on criminal charges, not just being called out publicly–needs to go to the leaders.

    Back when Covid-19 was starting its world tour I remember reading how around 70% of the US population would eventually be infected.

    Well, here we go.

    Bruce – and it’s so sad, that we were once a shining beacon, but now our battery’s run down, our facade is faded, and the luster is gone from our once-shiny emblem. We are actually doing worse than a slew of 3rd-world countries, or what were once considered “3rd world,” about all that’s needed to totally ruin us would be for China to call in the Debt we owe. Except, I doubt if we have enough gold on hand to satisfy that demand, and I sure as hell don’t expect them to accept dollars, which is likely the only thing holding them back, not to mention how busy they are becoming the world’s new Superpower, they won’t have time to waste on US until after Civil War 2.0

    Following which, they can easily come right on in, and dictate terms to us.
