Republicans are suing California that because of the Coronavirus is encouraging as many people as possible to vote by mail.

Obviously Republicans think they have something to lose by mail in ballots, but I'm not getting the beef and am going to have to look into that further to see if it's justified or not.   It can't just be fraud because that's been debunked with studies to the contrary.  But do facts really matter any more?

One theory I’ve read is that higher turnout tends to favor Democrats. Thus all the hoo-ha over voter ID as well as various dirty tricks i.e. mailing out or advertising wrong information about voting sites, etc.

Republicans had no beef when they recently one a special election in the California 25th congressional district by mail-in vote. But then again, this is a traditional Republican district.

Last week I highlighted the WaPo article about the constructive things people are doing with their "shut down" time.

Today, a piece from the NY Times, discussing how some families are benefiting emotionally, from "Shut down" time.

The Virus Has Wrecked Some Families. It Has Brought Others Closer

I especially enjoyed the part about the 14-year-old boy, caring for his 3 month-old niece, after her father died of CVirus.

 

Domestic and drunken violence were on the rise here when it was cold and flooded and people were asked to stay home.

The day before the greatest number of cases reported (on the 23rd) was the day of the greatest number of tests done ( the 22nd).  The number of hospitalizations stayed flat.

Everytime I hear about a "record number of cases", its reported without any context.

Yeah damn them for doing more testing and finding more cases, really makes them look bad.

Trump is now saying he might move the Republican convention out of North Carolina, a known hot spot with cases on the rise (due to more testing apparently) unless they guarantee to no social distancing and a full stadium.  The convention is in August.

His ego can't stand a half filled stadium with people spaced apart for safety because that wouldn't look good.  Best to have a full house of his cheering adoring fans.

I guess that speaks to the other half of the headline.

But we know that mental illness and substance abuse issues existed prior to CVirus shut down.

No shortage of both, in America.

Yes.  And now all of a sudden, conservative politicians and talking heads have a concern about mental health.  Imagine the mental health stresses that will accompany tens of thousands of uninsured Americans getting the hospital bill for their COVID treatment.

Yes.

As I have pointed out numerous times, Right-Wingers new found interest in mental health and child poverty, are definitely worth a chuckle.

Imagine, oh, we don't have to imagine, the mental health stresses facing healthcare workers, as they deal with death, illness, and fear of infection, from caring for CVirus victims.

We have already seen at least one doctor, commit suicide, and scores of others talking about the stresses.

Yet, Trump and Friends, are hellbent on creating more victims, while pretending nothing is wrong.

Why didn't Trump take time away from golf game, to acknowledge our nation is facing a dark, dark, time with 100,000 dead?

Because it would interrupt his fantasy of greatness.

Then this would bring up the question as to why there were such a great number of tests done?  Was it because they just randomly picked that day to do more testing?  Did they just randomly pick a bunch of people.  Or did the people themselves come with concerns of having been exposed or with symptoms, or just a bunch of people wanting to be tested?  Was testing being ramped up in nursing homes (like here in Florida)?  Was there a back log they were able to catch up on?  Did they just that one day decide to test more people randomly?

Why such a high number of tests being done, which resulted in a high number of positives?

But yes, you can look at it several ways.  The numbers here in Florida increased yesterday, but there were "only" four deaths.  Here in Tampa Bay, a community of seven or eight counties with a population of 2.7 million it was the first time in almost a month where no deaths were recorded in a 24 hour period.  The headline could read "Covid Cases Continue to Rise!".

Still I think it all should be considered, one shouldn't sugar coat a high rate of infection with a "death rates and hospitalizations remain stable".  But all of it.

Well, he did acknowledge our military dead-by tweeting "HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY."

 

Seriously. Happy Memorial Day. He can't even get something so simple and straightforward right. He's completely clueless.

Yes.

Memorial Day is such a HAPPY occasion!

My family "celebrates" by decorating the graves of deceased loved ones.

My dad, when he was alive, was a volunteer fire fighter.

He often drove his antique fire truck, in the town parade, which ended in a local cemetery.

Yep.

Trump is a moron. No doubt it.

Unfortunately that's what it has become, as the unofficial "start of summer."
