It gets weirder…

    Apparently, we see two different kinds of approaches to fight the virus. There are the ones who are buying masks, and there are the ones who are buying guns.

      Coronavirus Attacks Blood Vessels Across Body to Cause Multiple Organ Failure, Finds Study

      “The researchers found that the deadly virus caused more than just pneumonia and enters the endothelium (layer of cells), which acts as a defense line of the blood vessels, causing circulation problems in the smallest of blood vessels. The coronavirus then reduces the blood flow to different parts of the body and eventually stops blood circulation. This also explains why smokers and those with pre-existing conditions, such as hypertension, or high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and established cardiovascular disease, having a weakened endothelial function, or unhealthy blood vessels, were more vulnerable to the novel coronavirus.”

      Inflamed brains, toe rashes, strokes: Why COVID-19’s weirdest symptoms are only emerging now

      “The coronavirus primarily attacks the lungs, which can cause pneumonia or even respiratory failure, and in one of every five patients, it also leads to multiple organ failure.”

    • Sir Charles Says:

      Doctors and medical professionals from around the globe have called on world leaders to ensure a green recovery from the coronavirus crisis that takes account of air pollution and climate breakdown.

      More than 200 organisations representing at least 40 million health workers – making up about half of the global medical workforce – have signed an open letter to the G20 leaders and their chief medical advisers, pointing to the 7 million premature deaths to which air pollution contributes each year around the world.

      Chief medical officers and chief scientific advisers must be directly involved in designing the stimulus packages now under way, the letter urges, in order to ensure they include considerations of public health and environmental concerns. They say public health systems should be strengthened, and they warn of how environmental degradation could help to unleash future diseases.

        Ever hear the expressions “shoveling snow into the gates of hell” and “pissing into the wind”?

    and yet, as we ignore action until the point that drought, floods, extreme heat, perhaps other infectious disease outbreaks, ecosystem collapse, food shortage or any combination of these or ones i’ve missed…exceed the ability to government to respond to the mass displacement and economic turmoil that will ensue, what kind of state will we have?

    • David Tyler Says:

      A failed state. A libertarian utopia. The problem with such dreams is that without a functioning society freedom becomes self defeating.

    • Brent Jensen-Schmidt Says:

      A crappy one. The Soylent Green society looks likely, hopefully without the cannibalism.

  3. gmrmt Says:

    OK, who blabbed! Honestly people! How can we execute our plot for a dystopian future if our plans keep leaking to the press!

  4. dumboldguy Says:

    When at some future date we have a war crimes trial for climate deniers, there will have to be a whole courthouse set aside just for the Fox News contingent and all the other RWNJ’s that our “free” media encourages. Free speech should be based on FACTS, not half-assed opinions from people who make a buck from them.

    (And I have been making and buying masks—-don’t need any more guns, although I DID buy some more 00 and slugs for the shotgun. Is that a third “approach to fighting the virus”?)

  5. Roger Walker Says:

    If I’m reading that chart correctly, 28% of “US adults” believe that crap!

    • rhymeswithgoalie Says:

      …and another 32% are “not sure”.

      Well, this is one adult who is “not sure” how polling is done these days to be statistically robust.

    • al mar Says:

      It’s funny, but it was only a few days ago that I came across someone saying just this in the comments of a youtude I watched. I had, at the time, thought he was just a “Poe” or maybe even a Russian troll creating noise to foil real discussion. But now I find out 28% actually do believe it? When am I going to stop being surprised?

    Is U.S. America unique in the possibility of having a State Police State ?

  7. Keith McClary Says:

    The NSA is way ahead of Bill Gates:

    Inside the NSA’s Secret Tool for Mapping Your Social Network
    Edward Snowden revealed the agency’s phone-record tracking program. But thanks to “precomputed contact chaining,” that database was much more powerful than anyone knew.

    • rhymeswithgoalie Says:

      All that indignant complaining about Chinese infiltrating via their network tech and captive corporations conveniently ignore that the CIA had been doing it for decades and the NSA (per Snowden) were actively snooping on corporate-run US networks.

      Private corps have been gathering data via credit card use for half a century, ISPs know more intimately than Google what you do, and cell phone tracking has been monitoring people (in support of ad revenue) for upwards of a decade now.

  8. neilrieck Says:

    Dennis Prager is the guy behind Prager U (an online university useful in pushing alternative facts). On a related note, I sometimes watch a program called “Eat the Press” which is hosted by “conservative commentator” Steve Malzberg. “Eat the Press” is meant to show the places where (in his opinion) the press it liberally biased. (comment: these people only see liberal bias). Anyway, on the Friday night show they played a clip from Rush Limbaugh where Rush claimed that liberals were trying to extend the corona-crisis in order to affect Trump’s votes during the 2020 Presidential Election in November. Then he discussed this with a “talking head” who wondered why no other outlets were carrying this. Well, IMHO Malzberg and his program lost all credibility as soon as it went 100% over to the crazy side. But I am going to assume that anyone who disagrees with me will call me a liberal, when, in fact, I am an apolitical centrist like 70% of society.

  9. Eliot Axelrod Says:

    Boy, wait till this 40% figures out they’re already being tracked by their cellphones.

  10. Brent Jensen-Schmidt Says:

    If you do not want to quarantine, it’s OK.

    • dumboldguy Says:

      Unfortunately, too many of those being selected “out” are not really unfit—-they are merely on the wrong side of the wealth and income divide, and not necessarily less “fit” than the greedy rich.

      I do agree that as many of the RWNJ’s and “freedom lovers” as possible should be allowed to commit suicide by coronavirus. It’s too bad that they will take so many of the rest of us with them.
