I knew we were in trouble years ago when I had room mates that were getting their daily news form the 'Daily Show' on Comedy central.  Yes, they thought it was real news just delivered through lens of humor.  Sadly, these were graduate students.

We have some of those people on this board.  But the Daily Show definitely hit a hot button in its delivery.  If you deliver something in a comedic form, to some people its so much more powerful and believable.  Its like "yeah, its so obvious that X is Y and Y is Z, that its laughable to think otherwise."

Yesterday was a big jump for the entire country and it makes you wonder since the 2 previous days were reporting a Saturday which was holiday and a Sunday.  Generally, Tuesdays have been big days anyway, but yesterday was a whopper.  Today will be a good barometer

Yep, Tuesdays usually are the largest numbers of the week due to processing weekend data.  Still looking at ratios for the number of cases compared to deaths and hospitalizations.  Obviously it will be somewhat higher, but again, how much so in relation to the increased spike in case numbers?

Supposedly, FL, TX and AZ are getting better, we'll see.  They've been a mess for the last month, so hope so

Holy crap, Arizona reported 117 deaths yesterday which is a record for the state by like 30

If that's not an upward adjustment based on new data or something like that then that's not good at all

if there is something called a vaccine by fall absolutely under no circumstances take it

Instead just get the virus? Seems the worse it can do is infect you which is inevitable if you do nothing.

I trust Brazil about as much as I trust China or New York.

They are using Brazil because they have so many cases. The drug companies are working with the government but they aren't the government and are mainly US companies

America, however, is an utter disaster. Texas, Florida, and Arizona are the newest hubs of contagion, having apparently learned nothing from the other countries and states that previously experienced surges in cases. I stared at my phone in disbelief when the musician Rosanne Cash wrote on Twitter that her daughter had been called a “liberal pussy!” in Nashville for wearing a mask to buy groceries.

That insult succinctly conveys the crux of the problem. American leadership has politicized the pandemic instead of trying to fight it. I see no preparedness, no coordinated top-down leadership of the sort we’ve enjoyed in Europe. I see only empty posturing, the sad spectacle of the president refusing to wear a mask, just to own the libs. What an astonishing self-inflicted wound.

On June 26, a day when the U.S. notched some 45,000 new cases—how’s that for “American carnage”?—the European Union announced that it would loosen some travel restrictions but extend its ban on visitors from the United States and other hot-spot nations. On Tuesday, it confirmed that remarkable and deeply humiliating decision, a clear message that in pandemic management, the EU believes that the United States is no better than Russia and Brazil—autocrat-run public-health disasters—and that American tourists would pose a dire threat to the hard-won stability our lockdown has earned us. So much for the myth that the American political system and way of life are a model for the world.

There is something called social fixer that allows the user to filter out certain things on facebook.  I use it and filter everything with the words Trump/Biden/Flags/Clinton and several other words.  Even so, some things slip thru.  But it does help.  

Wow, that sounds great. I've said for years I wish I could filter out all that poo on FB.

His wife might be the dumbest creature currently walking the face of the Earth. Like if you built a modern day Noah's ark, she might literally be the dumbest creature on that boat. I hope this is a troll account. If it is, well done. If it's not I'm terrified.

Yes

That's where I got the info. "Early indications from the CDC are that FL, AZ and TX are flattening their curve"  VP said the same in his presser.

I don't pull stuff from thin air

that is basically a list of some of the states that are getting worse and most of the ones you listed have been posting record bad numbers for weeks.  You can't be "getting better" until you stop setting your own records every day.
