This doesn't refute my point in any way, shape or form.

    Massachusetts was hit with a double whammy in March of being next to one of the world's most traveled cities (and thus, one of the largest outbreaks). I've no idea where you live, but Boston is barely 200 miles from NYC. To think that NYC's issues wouldn't immediately spread to nearby cities is ridiculous. The second whammy was the Biogen super-spreader event that took place in March and led to a crazy number of infections. I know you won't bother to google it, but between those two factors we got hit hard right up front.

    And once again, you're factually inaccurate about MA. https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tra...es_totaldeaths - sixth in the country in total COVID deaths (and I'd bet that Florida, Georgia and Texas are wildly undercounting), but 3rd in deaths per 100,000. Again, if DeSantis or Kemp weren't blatantly lying about infections, deaths, testing or basically anything else COVID-related, they'd be much higher.

    State unemployment is obviously high in states that are doing the right thing and closing things down. I mean, duh? Unfortunately, doing the right thing has consequences.

    edit: sorry, I'm not clicking a bull**** townhall link or watching a bull**** fox news anything. I am 100% confident that his comments are taken out of context because he's been fairly critical of states reporting from the start.


    And with that I'm done with you too, since you're just regurgitating what trollbot posts at this point.

    Release the parachute! It's no longer needed.

      There was no reason Cuomo couldn't have asked the Feds to expedite certifications/approvals, and the Feds would have granted it. They did that for everything else, it's not like they were withholding help. Not sure why you're covering for his incompetence? It's not like NYC is the only place in the US with nursing homes and acute care facilities, etc. ad nauseum.

      You still haven't mentioned anything about the various unused field hospitals built in & around NYC.

      I may live closer to Boston than you do (45 minutes), and we haven't seen any pass-along effect from either NYC or Boston that you're describing between NYC and Boston. FWIW I know two attendees from the now-infamous Biogen conference.

      So I'm right that MA is Top Three on per capita deaths, very close on total deaths, and correct by all measures that MA has done worse than FL. Oh, and I'm right about the unemployment thingie, too.

      Your main disconnect seems to be that you assume "doing the right thing" means closing things down forever, and with all due respect, I think that's been debunked. Besides, that's an opinion, NOT a fact.

      I'd hope you have enough pride to operate outside of Chairman Kep's directives, but that's your call ...

      • It isn't about certifications, it's about infrastructure. Isolation doesn't care if you have a piece of paper, it requires actual physical things that said ships do not posses in numbers enough to be helpful. JCAHO could approve all they want and that wouldn't spontaneously materialize negative pressure rooms or segregate HVAC sections of a ship.

        Boston was hit because it's a city. Cow Hampshire has a very low population density. And what does a virulently contagious disease like COVID love more than high population density? Stupid people like you.

        I mean, I'm mystified by anyone with an IQ over 63 that can look at this situation and earnestly think this is nonsense, which means you're either dumb enough to qualify for SSDI or you're just being disingenuous.

        Per capita deaths are important but when a chunk of the country is demonstrably lying, unfortunately it's not a good indicator anymore. And again, no **** that when you appropriately close a state down that unemployment goes up. In other news, rain comes from the sky!

        My main disconnect is nothing of the sort.

          So The MNGOP, in a session devoted to trying to take away Tim Walz's COVID powers decides they would rather turn the session into a "Minneapolis is a hellhole where you couuld die!!" session. Why you ask?

          “A friendly, [sic] reminder (as discussed in caucus) to stay on message IF you speak today,” it read. “COVID issues are not our winning message. PUBLIC SAFETY is our ticket to the majority, let’s win with that.”
          Seems like a solid plan...except the minority leader sent it to the Dems instead of the GOP.

          It cannot be stated enough how friggin stupid the MNGOP is...and the people who support it are certifiable.

          • For those with functioning brains:

            https://www.boston.com/news/coronavi...-maine-wedding
            A 5th death has been linked to that wedding in Maine. A single wedding, and now 5 people who weren't even there are dead because of it.

            • Just heard. Germany has just announced three more cases( no idea what the total is) traced to a bar in the alpine regions frequented by an American woman suspected of ignoring quarantine.

              I'm surprised any country would allow Americans inside its borders at this point.
