    It's exacerbated because for the longest time national politics has been on the rural derps' tip -- IA and NH caucuses, fields of grain waving on ads. This in a country that is 80% urban. Nobody lives in that chocolate box BS myth anymore and even when they did it was it was a just a mentally and morally impoverished sewer of racism and ignorance. The pandering made sense in 1910 when we were 80% farmers. Now all that's out there is meth and ADM. But it's white, so it's useful shorthand for the silent narrative "gee, it would be paradise if we had no coloreds to worry about."

    Most of the problems of this country stem from the national myth of Jeffersonian rural virtue. Voltaire was right: "the idiocy of the countryside." Kill the Senate and reduce their influence to their minuscule economic and non-existent cultural contribution.

    Real America is cities. It has been since at least 1865, if not 1776.


    It has certainly worked well these past five months, you city fellers packing it in tight and all.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

They have zero concept of basic math and the sheer scale of 1% of the population. So I decided to do the math.

      Total US Population (https://www.census.gov/data/tables/t...ate-total.html) 2019 Estimate: 328,239,523

      1% of US Population = 3,282,395 (.23)

      Now I could say "And that's more than the population of Chicago, Houston, or Phoenix" or even say "that's about the population of Utah" but that's no fun. You know what is fun? Wiping five states off the map. Population of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, and South Dakota combined is 3,581,014. That's the four least populous states wiped out and South Dakota left going "there's so much more room for activities..."

      And mind you, that isn't even counting the likely huge number of people that would develop complications and die later. I just don''t think people can understand 3.2 million gone in a matter of weeks and affect that would have.
      1% of the population is not going to die of Covid in any scenario. Speaking of math...

      The death rate is based on those that have had it and those that have passed away.

      you don’t take a death rate of 1% and apply it to the entire population. Good Grief. Not to mention there isn’t a chance in hell the death rate is anywhere close to 1%.

      And that doesn’t even get into people dying “with Covid” and from it.

      • IFR infection fertility rate. This would be the chance of dying if you had Covid.

        5-9 years old .0016%
        10-19 years old .00032%
        20-49 years old .0092%
        50-64 years old .14%
        65 and older 5.6%
        All ages .64%

        Then you factor in half of all Covid deaths Have been in LTCF. The average stay of a LTCF patient is a year. So when someone who has been in a LTCF is over say 85 and was already very sick, passes away and is listed as a Covid death, that is disingenuous to say the least. 33% of all deaths have been people 85 or older.

        The all age rate is probably around .5% if not lower.

        If you wanted to measure anyone in the population dying because of Covid you would probably get laughed at because there zero statistical significance.

          John Adams and others struggled with Jefferson's idea of natural virtue even then. Adams, at least, also understood that Jefferson would enjoy mythical status in this country.

              As expected, there is a pretty clear delay between the cases and the deaths. But seeing how it's playing out, Florida looks to average over 100/day for a very long time. Lest we forget, 7/6-9 started out as light days, and they are all near 100.

              But these people are going to die anyway, they had pre-existing conditions, they are all overweight and need to be healthy, this is a hoax, deaths are going down,......

                • The Red Sox have shut down E-rod due to ‘minor complications’ from Covid and he will be re-evaluated in a week. That’s a professional athlete in his 20’s getting the best care possible and obviously there are issues. Doesn’t bode well for the rest of us.

                    I heard today from a Trumpian that this is all Dr. Fauci's fault. So, nothing to worry about. Now that the head guy is in charge and doing the pressers without doctors we're good.

                      You mean that spike in case numbers beginning a few weeks ago meant there might be consequences?

                          Seriously, he said that.

                          He somehow thinks that more testing leads to more infection. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/tr...ting-look-bad/

                          Other than a serious face palm, I'm not sure how to react to that.

                          For this country's "leader" to think that, it's no wonder we are where we are. And that we should fully expect a LOT more pneumonia deaths, since more and more won't be tested for COVID.

                          And the worst sufferers are minorities- particularly Hispanics and African Americans. Both of which don't have a serious input to the government in the states where they have suffered worst.
                          Well, if the cases keep going up the way they are they will look bad only testing symptomatic people.

                            Nah. Not testing at all means coronavirus is gone!

                            Just ignore the sudden influx of pneumonia and bronchitis deaths...
