Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 10, 2021

COVID-19 killed one Floridian an average of about every four minutes last week, the second worst in the nation. But for those wanting to know how many people are dying every day in their own communities - good luck.

DeathSantis is dropping 300 bodies a day and laments how mask wearing became so political. What a ---------.

This man is a disgusting coward. I wonder why that appeals so to Republicans?

There have been more COVID deaths in Florida over the last two weeks.

Than U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan during the past 20 years.

And they call themselves the pro-life party.

Just as I predicted

This is what happens when your politics are as transparent as a fishbowl
Desantis leadership is "refreshing" and Democrats are evil

That one image deserves an entire thread, IMHO.

I see a pattern here, Orange Adolf is also a disgusting coward, so Little Ronnie DeathSentence has that going for him, like master like slave.

FL under DeathSentence has always screwed with the Covid numbers, tried to massage them to show improvements where there were none, and when called out for that, stopped providing statistics all together. I have a feeling that when the real numbers come to light, FL will be by far the leader in total numbers and percentage deaths from in the world, and that's something considering Bolsonaro's stellar performance..

Florida is a sh#thole state. Can we give it back to Cuba?

The reality is, even without Governor DeathSentence Florida would still be a really screwed up State. My perception is that the bottom half of the State is fairly normal. It is the top half that is just completely nuts.

80% of Covid deaths have hit those 65 and older.

Florida has either the highest or second highest senior population in the country.

Yet, somehow, per capita Covid death cases in Florida is 25th in the country. NY with Pandemic God Cuomo at the helm is #2.

Yet the Florida governor is nicknamed "DeathSantis". Never mind the fact that public health goes way beyond this pandemic. The more draconian lockdowns had horrible public health outcomes - suicides, substance abuse, domestic abuse, depression all WAY up. Throw in the loss of critical development for children in states that shut-down in person learning. Then the economic havoc. The lockdowns destroyed the livelihoods of millions of people. The states that took the big picture approach did a far better job overall. Florida's economy fared much better than states that were much more stringent with their lockdowns.

The Desantis hate really makes no sense.

Typical 'conservative' move nowadays; when you can't win, change the rules, fire your data person, tell medical examiners who answer to you to fudge their causes of death to make it appear better, etc etc etc.

This is what you choose to post when it's revealed that he is hiding information about a deadly pandemic from the citizens?

This article is exhibit A of why people hate desantis.

But yeah if your goal is for covid to spread so that it looks like biden is doing almost as bad as trump did with covid, then i can see why you'd love desantis.

Those Florida alligators can eat only so fast. Maybe it's time to light funeral pyres down to the Seminole casino, and call it a religious ceremony for the indigenous folk. The DeSantis death crew will then start telling relatives of the deceased that 'oh, someone came by last week and took your Memaw home--she was feeling much better...'

According to Wordometer Florida currently stands at #12 and New York is at #3. I have little faith in your economic assertions, nor your assertions on how other problems were "way up". I would like to see some hard numbers from a reliable source, since the first assertion I checked has already shown to be faulty.

Looking more at the data, more than half of New York's deaths occurred before mid-May of 2020, meaning they were people who were likely infected by the end of April 2020, before we really had good information on how widespread the virus was and before most of the mitigations were in place. There was a second spike last winter, after things had started to open back up over the summer and the holiday spikes in infections. It seems to have plateaued since early summer. You can see this when you scroll down this page on Worldometers

Florida, on the other hand, despite some dodgy numbers, is showing a rapid spike in the last month, and active cases is higher than it has ever been for Florida. I say dodgy numbers, because the trends do not make sense with what we know about how this disease works. It does not seem likely that the number of deaths and the number of new cases would start falling at the same time, for example, yet they show that way in Florida for this month.

If you were to remove that early spike from New York's numbers and look at post-mitigation, Florida has nearly 2x the per capita deaths. Even with that early spike, New York continues to fall down the list, and Florida is rising. I'm not sure I'd call that success.

"somehow, per capita Covid death cases in Florida is..."

Are you effing kidding?!?

Florida has been caught multiple times faking Covid numbers, including a record spike in flu deaths during a year where there was virtually no flu season. They also fired the woman in charge of reporting Covid deaths, for reporting them accurately.

Anyone believing ANY numbers being provided by the Florida government is a willful moron.

#15 - Check the chart out in my post #5. Note the caveat at the top of it:
"(*2016 vote % for Alaska only; NE & FL data not available)"
There's a reason why FL data isn't available.

Yep: Truth would pre-empt the endless home run trots of DeSantis and the preening morons.

"DeSantis and the Preening Morons."

Gunter Grass, German author and WW2 veteran, wrote in one the "Danzig Trilogy" stories, that if you did not wish to be lied to by politicians, you had to stand behind them when they were speaking.

Oopsy, Grass was drafted into a Waffen-SS armored division as a tank gunner when he turned 17 near the end of WW2. The stories are still great, though.
