Is it really smart of Trump to be trying to kill off his supporters shortly before Election Day?

I'm waiting to see if the coronavirus cases and deaths spike in Alleghany County and the surrounding areas. I have family living in the surrounding areas, so I'm waiting with bated breath and hoping for the best.

Look at the response by the Missouri Governor after he and his wife tested positive. The isolate, test and trace all of those around them. So, republicans know Covid19 is real. Yet they refuse to take basic prevention methods. I just don't get the disconnect. Why aren't republicans taking positive measures AHEAD of infection?

Are they just stupid?

Now that's a thought.

Not as instantly gratifying as Communist rioters burning ---- down, but makes for some great thread topics later in the unhinged left-wing blogosphere about Grim Milestones and whatnot.

It's not going to happen. The masks are so porous as to be ineffective. Worse, they raise the level of breathable CO2 from exhalation.

Blue cities in purple states? absolutely.

the difference in those states will be the difference gained in the largest cities in those states.

Cleveland, Cincy, Philly, Pittsburg, Milwaukee, etc...

You're saying the masks don't keep droplets in, but do keep in the smaller (by many orders of magnitude) CO2?

Economic genius AND expert in fluid transport AND epidemiology. I'm so jealous.

@#7 ... The masks are so porous as to be ineffective....

Which masks? The MAGA masks that the Trump campaign sells?

... Worse, they raise the level of breathable CO2 from exhalation. ...

Hmmmm... as I exhale, the mask stores the CO2 that I exhale, and then releases that CO2 the next time I inhale?

Where does the mask store all that CO2?

All fiber masks. They are porous.

The masks block the full release of exhalation. Inhalation takes in a higher levels of CO2 and lower levels of O2.

Headaches are one symptom. On a longer term, they weaken the immune system.

Their real purpose is political. To show submission.

Ray, you are lucky I am not the moderator here. If you are going to post stupid harmful ---- such as the real purpose of masks is to "show submission" I would kick you the hell out of here so quick. What is wrong with you?

Are you a ------- who struggles to breathe even while not wearing a mask?
Typically the people in videos saying "I can't breathe in a mask," look like they have much larger issues to tackle.

Ray is submitting to Trumpism's fake science.

To be honest, he has been submitting to fake science eons before Trumpism.

Yeah, a bunch of isolated -------- is totally worse than a POTUS doing his best to ensure spread of a pandemic.

So let me get this straight.

Masks are too porous to help against COVID....but not porous enough to allow venting of CO2?

------- hell. There isn't a pile of snake ---- garbage you won't gladly swallow, is there?

If it were a normal election I wouldn't have any doubts.

My doubts are that Trump et al will in any way act normally and pass power to the winner.

I honestly don't think that's going to be a problem.

But I'll be here to eat my words if it is.

Clearly Trump wants to kill of his voting base and those imbeciles STILL don't get it. LOL... They buy masks that say "Trump 2020" but for what if they believe that covid is false or not severe enough to hurt you.

No milestone we can talk about trumps Trumpy and the American death toll from the Trumpy's handling of the Trumpy virus.

200,000 dead Americans due to Trumpy's criminal negligence.

Pretty grim stuff. Hard to beat by any lefty.

Pittsburgh is a blue city, but the surrounding areas I mentioned where my family members live are red. I'm not sure the coronavirus will stop at the Allegheny County line if Trump's rally turns into a super spreader event. For one thing, a bunch of those Trump attendees likely live in the red outskirts and travelled into the city for the event.

Spent the last 20 years saying CO2 is not pollution...

Says CO2 is dangerous to breathe...

Re 29

Where is snippy?? He loves CO2.

And I thoughts them deplorables loved breathing their own CO2 and farts.

Especially their farts.

They sure do love their own farts.
