Graphic Deaths

Here’s a graph of the deaths from Covid-19. Note how fast the deaths are rising now. And if you think vaccines will solve this problem, remember that it will take around six months for the required 70% of Americans to start getting vaccinated, and that is assuming that significant numbers of Americans don’t refuse the […]

Coronavirus Catastrophe

On Wednesday, the US had the worst day ever for the pandemic, setting new records for Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Yes, it is bad in the US. In just one day, 3,656 people died from Covid-19 (more than the number who died from the terrorist attacks on 9/11). The US will pass 17 million […]

Taking Propaganda to the Next Level

Saturday Night Live displayed a brilliant analogy of just how out of whack our news media has become. What if the right wing media treated sports news the same way it treats political news. The analogy is apt, because sports fans can show the same kind of fervor as Trump’s base.

Moving On

Donald Trump actually said that if the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden, then he will certainly leave the presidency. For some strange reason, he did it from behind a rather tiny desk. Maybe White House staffers are secretly replacing his desk with a slightly smaller one each day, to nudge him out.

Insanity

The stooges in the White House have gone absolutely insane. The main stooge isn’t Donald Trump anymore, it is Rudy Giuliani, who seems to have gone totally insane. As for the third stooge, I vote for Lindsey Graham, who appears to have committed felony election fraud in his effort to install Trump as dictator for […]

The Power of Propaganda

Jodi Doering is an emergency room Registered Nurse, working in South Dakota. That’s right, she is seeing patients who are dying of Covid-19, but they believe the propaganda, misinformation, and outright lies spewed by Donald Trump and the right-wing media, that their last words before they die are that the pandemic is a hoax and […]

Masks of the Narcissists

There is no way to sugarcoat this: The pandemic is out of control in the US. On Friday there were over 181 thousand new cases. Eight days before that, we had just passed 100 thousand new cases for the first time. With the tremendous surge in new cases, an equal surge in deaths will follow […]

Oh No, She’s Bach

It has been a very long time since we have heard from Michele Bachmann. No surprises, as she is even crazier than ever. The first 45 seconds of this video is Bachmann praying loudly that God will intervene and make Trump the president. Somehow, given how things are going, I don’t think God is listening […]

Kamala Harris Makes History

Joe Biden made (dubious) history today as the oldest person (77 years) to ever be elected president. But Kamala Harris made even more history. She is the first woman and first person of color to be elected vice president. Harris was born to a Jamaican father and an Indian mother, so her ancestry is not […]

A Sick Country

For the first time, the US just topped 100,000 new coronavirus cases in a single day. Because of this, the number of active cases is increasing faster and faster. These exploding active cases will cause health facilities to become even more overwhelmed, and has already led to the rationing of health care in the US. […]
