CNN passive aggressive towards OANN

During the coronavirus briefing today, I heard a question from OANN and noticed that CNN did not pan to the reporter. The camera stayed focused on Trump the whole time.

If it was just the one time I could brush it off, but I've noticed this before.

I guess they don't want to be the booster rocket to Chanel Rion's rising star?

It may get uery confvsing for vs here on DV

Trump promised a V-shaped recovery for the stock market. Well, the ship has already sailed on that. The best we can hope for is a U, and may even end up with a W. So let's just assume it will be a U. Since we know Trump rewrites reality to match his past false narratives, that means the letters U and V will have to be swapped.

Thank yov for that, Trvmp!

South Carolina is opening tomorrow!

Alignment with federal task force guidelines: no

Cooperation with neighboring states: no
Overwhelming support of voluntary measures by residents: no
Availability of surgical masks to general public: no

Immunity to Satan's virus by being washed in the blood of Jesus: Amen!

I'm staying the F home. I'll sip on lattes and watch the apocalypse out my window and on TV.

Price gouging on Amazon

I think Amazon cleaned up the most egregious violations, but this still seems to be rampant.

16 oz of mayonnaise for $23 (should be $4)

https://www.amazon.com/Dukes-Real-Mayonnaise-Smooth-Creamy/dp/B007SHLLH4

97 oz of evaporated milk for $16 (should be around $11)

https://www.amazon.com/Carnation-Evaporated-Milk-97-Ounce/dp/B004DIXYYE/ref=sr_1_1_sspa

13 oz of Hamburger Helper for $9 (should be $2)

https://www.amazon.com/Betty-Crocker-Hamburger-Helper-Stroganoff/dp/B07CMCQ387/ref=sr_1_2

These are not anecdotal, they are every pantry staple I search for.

So if you are one of the lucky ones, you can pay 2-3X the going rate for your nonperishable wares and cut out a few more trips to the grocery store. The rest of us get to mask up and head out.

I wonder how many low-income seniors took on some debt for the same privilege thinking this was "going to be over soon"? That's the danger in this overly optimistic messaging from the WH. Putin isn't doing that. Merkel isn't doing that.

Better Task Force Briefing questions for Jim Acostas

Jim Acostas has been asking "gotcha" questions of Trump that we already know the answer to again and again. This serves a purpose to a point, but has become repetitive and pointless.

Given that there are daily press briefings, there is no reason more technical questions can't be posed to Fauci and Birx. I'm entirely confident the MSM can dumb it down for mass consumption.

Here are a few of the questions I would ask. Maybe Acostas should take some notes.

1) By recent estimates, the R-naught value in places like New York and Germany is around 0.9 with a full lockdown in place. Anything above 1.0 will mean either a slow or fast disaster involving an ever-increasing number of cases. What is the expected new range for the R-naught value as lockdown restrictions are eased and testing procedures are increased across the country, and is the simulation data available?

2) When is the effect of temperature and humidity on the transmission of CV-19 virus expected to be known with certainty? The CDC has performed lab experiments on flu virus transmissibility, yet nothing definitive has been learned of this virus month after month.

3) The WHO is playing an active role in coordinating the worldwide development effort into a flu vaccine. How significantly will the recent withdrawal of US support hamper this effort, and how specifically will any setbacks be reversed?

Now if Acostas wants to talk about bleach on Monday, the OANN could shock the world and ask these questions instead. Feel free OANN, you have my permission.





Chris Cuomo "quarantine shamed" by conservative media

Cuomo verbally accosted the "Fat-Tire Guy" near his property who is now making the rounds on the conservative media circuit.

https://nypost.com/2020/04/14/long-island-bicyclist-verbally-attacked-by-chris-cuomo-fires-back/

Cuomo did still have CV-19 symptoms at this time, and you can say what you will about whether he should have been more aggressively quarantining himself or not. No laws were broken, so any perceived impropriety is something he'll have to reconcile with himself. It's not like he was on the subway.

I don't think the encounter amounts to much in the way of being newsworthy. FXN's Tucker Carlson picked up the story regardless, puffing up the "altercation" as a guise to smear the CNN celebrity. He prefaced the piece by saying he was concerned with Cuomo's health, making all subsequent statements A-OK. Tucker and Company have taken quite a beating in recent weeks, and this seems to be nothing more than a transparent low-blow retaliation.

So is this where we are now? Quarantine shaming?

National Six Month Emergency Fund

Financial gurus recommend individuals have six months worth of expenses saved away for an emergency, or more. Shouldn't countries have this as well? The USA, the richest country in history, should be able to support businesses which are shut down for six months easily. We're barely one month into this and there's protests and talk of a Depression.

Even if we make it two months and reopen, we're going to have Pandemic 2.0 in the winter which is going to last longer. Flu season is October to April or so.

Suze Orman will DENY more PPP programs this winter due to lack of savings.

I cracked COVFEFE!

So the DU figured out that COV was probably code for Coronavirus. That's just the code header. What about the FEFE?

FEFE is hexadecimal for 65278.

Add the number of the beast 666 to get 65944.

Modulo that by 45 (45th president) and you get 19.

It was COVID-19 all along!

(65278 + 666) % 45 = 19

February 12, 2020

I predict this date will have been the high water mark of the Trump economy.

DJIA: 29,551

I believe in America. I invest in America. That said, the Dow won't reach this limit again during Trump's single-term presidency.

The US economy is set to retract by 6% this year, and that is probably optimistic. We are besieged by unrealistic optimism right now. Dreams of a v-shaped recovery will soon be dashed.

Given how tightly Trump has tied his presidency to the success of the economy, this date will be recorded as the high water mark of that flash flood as well.

Whaaaaa? A Federal CV-19 testing and contact tracing system??

Why in the world wouldn't a patchwork of state systems suffice?
