It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

Bernie Kicking Ass On the Senate Floor




Wednesday, 25 March 2020 at 20h 36m 19s

This. Is. Serious.

Okay dumb fucks. 15% of the people who contract this virus need hospitalization, with 5 to 10 percent needing ventilators. This virus is twice as permissible as the flu, and at least 10 times more deadly. Plus, even the "mild" cases suck : there are plenty of anecdotal stories of bad flu for 10 days or more.

So if you get just 40% of the population infected, 40% of 350 million is about 140 million people, 15% of whom will be in the hospital. That's 21 million, with upwards of 14 million who will need ventilators and probably take a month to recover. Plus, it's not just people older than 40, 50, or 60.

And that's assuming only 40% contract the virus !!! Do you get it now?

Or listen to MLB Hall-of-Fame broadcaster, San Francisco legend, Jon Miller.

Giants broadcaster Jon Miller said he and his wife, Janine, got tested for COVID-19 and are quarantining themselves as they await the results. In a Wednesday morning radio interview on KNBR, Miller said his son and son’s fiancée tested positive for the coronavirus after returning from Europe, where they were engaged. “They’re young. They’re healthy. You feel bad for them,” Miller said. “They’re just so sick. Anybody who’s been exposed to it, and you read about it, it’s a horrible thing. It’s painful and just so relentless. It never goes away, it seems like.” Jon and Janine Miller were tested Friday.

Remember all those Americans packed into the airport terminals because of the mismanaged travel ban? All those Americans went to states and municipalities across the country, a subset of which carrying the virus with them. The shocking incompetence and narcissistic hubris that allowed this to happen is astonishing.

Amy Goodwin is a national treasure

Amy Goodwin does a daily news podcast. This is an 18 minute segment of today's show.


As the New York metro area has 60% of all the new coronavirus cases in the United States and is responsible for half the cases all over the country, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday the number of hospitalizations is expected to peak in the next 40 days as hospitals are already encountering shortages of equipment needed to protect medical workers and to keep patients alive when the city’s COVID-19 cases peak in the coming weeks. We’re joined by two people on the frontlines of the pandemic: Sean Petty, a registered nurse in the pediatric emergency room of a public hospital in the Bronx and member of the New York State Nurses Association board of directors, and Kelley Cabrera, an emergency room nurse at a public hospital in the Bronx.

SF cases of Coronavirus as of 9am today

a = 1.47087 and b = 0.165292. The rate of increase per day is still increasing. It was .148 on Sunday, .161 on Monday, .164 on Tuesday.

The models current 14 and 21 day prediction of cases is as follows.

2,228 = 178×1.47087×(1+0.165292)^14

6,503 = 178×1.47087×(1+0.165292)^21

Yikes. Already the model has 6,503 cases by mid April. The model had 4,117 on Sunday. That's a 57.95% increase over 3 days, a 16.46% increase per day. Here's the math:

1.5795 = (1+r)^3

Use the reciprocal exponent (1/3) then subtract 1.

Robert Reich on Who Rigged the System

And How he thinks we should fix it. Because you dissect problems with the goal of proposing solutions, as opposed to framing reality and blaming others who don't meet the frame's criteria in order to maintain the benefits of the status quo.

SF cases of Coronavirus as of 9am today

We are at 16.4% increase per day right now. The a value is 1.49178. The b value is 0.164706.

The models current 14 and 21 day prediction of cases is as follows.

1,916 = 152×1.49178×(1+0.164706)^14

5,573 = 152×1.49178×(1+0.164706)^21

SF cases of Coronavirus as of 9am today

In 3 days, San Francisco positive cases of COVID-19 has been jumping 84 to 108 to 131 ... +24, +23. The doubling rate is now roughly 4.6 days right now. The euler exponential model I have been updating now has a=1.60294 and b=0.161615. This means the rate of increase per day is 16.2% and rough estimate of known cases 1/1.60294 or 62.4% of positives are known.

The models current 14 and 21 day prediction of cases is as follows.

1,710 = 131×1.60294×(1+0.161615)^14

4,880 = 131×1.60294×(1+0.161615)^21

Funny Joke


Plane with 5 passengers on board: Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, The Pope and a 10-year-old schoolboy. The plane is about to crash and there are only 4 parachutes.

Trump says I need one: “I’m the smartest man in the USA and am needed to make America great again.” Takes one and jumps.

Johnson says, ‘I’m needed to sort out Britain’. He takes one and jumps.

The Pope says, ‘I need one as the world needs the Catholic Church.’ He takes one and jumps.

Angela says to the ten year old: “You can have the last parachute. I’ve lived my life, yours is only just starting.”

The 10-year-old replies: “Don’t worry, there are 2 parachutes left. The smartest man in the USA took my school bag.”’
