Isn't it ironic that the "Pro-life" Republicans are the group most resistant to taking simple inexpensive steps like wearing a mask? That think it's a 'hoax?' Who want to pack churches?

All this because they aren't really 'pro-life' at all. They're only 'pro-birth.'

Even if you adjusted Canada's numbers to a US population size, they'd have 2,850 (roughly). Still (roughly) 20x less than the US has right now...

"Even if you adjusted Canada's numbers to a US population size, they'd have 2,850"

But if you use Republican Math instead, you can make any conclusion you want! In this case, 1 + 1 equals Canada has more deaths.

See how easy it makes things???

The public health instigated compulsory mask wearing in public indoor spaces in Edmonton and area yesterday.I was stuck there getting a tire fixed for 2 hours and during that period I saw about 95% willing compliance and the rest went along when the policy change was pointed out.Canadians are more willing to put aside individualism for the betterment of the community in times of crisis.

They're only 'pro-birth.'

I'm not convinced its even that, I think its more about control and where they believe is a woman's place is in our society.

That and some deep rooted jealousy over a preconceived notion of promiscuity that they associate with women who have abortions (which ties into the above).

I like to fire my AR15 into the air whenever I go downtown.

A lot of fascists tell me that I shouldn't do that, but I know my rights. If you are afraid of getting hit in the head with a bullet you should stay inside or wear a helmut, don't try to take away my freedom. The chance of getting killed by one of my bullets is very low, less that lightning strikes.

COVID Cases Aug 5: Spain 0, France 0, Canada 285, U.S. 48,849

So, we're winning?

Cheetolini/GOP/Moscow Mitch were right. I'm kinda sick of all the winning.

Remember when Republicans pretended to be outraged by the loss of American lives.

They were told, albeit a little late, by being responsible and working together we could minimize the spread of the virus and keep it under control.

Instead. They decided to turn COVID19 into the next common cold.

Because their individual freedoms were somehow under attack.

Because Conservative leaders, both religious and political, told their supporters liberals and Democrats are lying.

It's been also revealed the heads of the coronavirus task force, Kushner, actually took steps to ensure it's spread. Hoping to kill Americans.

Soon 200,000 Americans will be dead. Due to disinformation and sabotage, by the Trump administration and conservative leaders across America.

People bring up flu death counts as comparison. Measures are taken to prevent those deaths.

Republicans, especially Trump, are ignoring COVID. The death count shouldn't be as high as it is and conservatives are like, "Well, more Americans died during the Spanish flu."

There's a fire going on. Stop running around with gasoline. Help put it out before more people needlessly get infected. Before more people die.

Try to be a better person. Isn't that what religion is supposed to teach?

Who knows.

The title is lie. That is all most members of this echo chamber are going to read and believe.

"The title is lie."

Then tell us the true numbers.

Also, an English speaker would have said
The title is a lie.

The numbers for Spain and France are N1 and N2 where N1 and N2 are integers greater than zero.
