One Lump of Stupid or Two, Sturgis?

Eric Trump Goes To Sturgis?

Guys, it’s unbelievable, but even as the Darwin Variant of the Trump-Virus is surging in South Dakota, the Sturgis Bike Rawley is ON:

 

Thousands of bikers have converged on the tiny South Dakota community of Sturgis for the annual 10-day Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The rally got underway on Friday amid a surge of COVID-19 cases in the United States being fueled by the highly-contagious Delta variant. In South Dakota, cases spiked nearly 70% in the days before the rally started.

OK, but what about…

The rally kicked off ceremoniously, with no mask mandates. No proof of vaccinations are needed, Mola Lenghi reports for “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”

So, just like last year’s rally, er, super spreader event only with a much more contagious (and deadly) variant. Got it.

Here’s a grim new statistic to start your weekend, via the AP: “U.S. now averaging 100,000 new coronavirus infections a day” —watch that number rise after Sturgis.

    Something tells me the nation’s relative IQ is increasing and will continue to do so in the coming months.

    This virus has really created a death wish club. If only their suicide lust didn’t include others. They can “own the libs” all they want but stay out of the hospitals. After the reports of the spread from last year Sturgis, I would have thought they’d postpone it at least.
    I suspect there won’t be many left if this keeps up.

    There’s just too damned many people …

    Actually, I think on a sub-conscious level, or perhaps encoded into their DNA, they know the world as we know it is about to end and many will need to die for humanity to survive, and they’re goin’ for it. On a sub-conscious level, or perhaps encoded into their DNA …

    I predict a new surge – in used motorcycles at estate sales.

    At least this year the smart people have been vaccinated. Delta will welcome the vaccine-hesitant.

    I’ve read that the original novel coronavirus has a contagion rate of one meaning that one infected person would infect one other. Sometimes you read two. More precise reports say like 1.2. Whatever. I’ve read that the Delta variant has a rate of anywhere between five and nine.

    The GQP response to the pandemic defies all reason.
