2012 level defeat for GOP- Keep Saying IT, Trump Will Hate IT!

The map is really close to 2012.. just swap Ohio and GA. and IA and AZ.

Trump will REALLY, REALLY hate being compared to Romney!

Hard to account for USPS and hacking that leaves little to no trace

I am pretty certain the RGV was hacked in Texas and no one will ever investigate because of where it happened and the level of pandemic there

ES&S with those hackable modems were also used in Miami-Dade

This is the correct answer... older people are absolutely terrified/terrorized by what's going on...

I am a native Floridian (my parents still live there) and I saw this first hand when I visited just before this latest spike.

I will even go out on a limb and say Florida is already lost to Trump by 2-5%.

Book mark the prediction.

US Economy Contracts 37% in 2nd Quarter per IMF

This is equal to all of 1929-33 in a single quarter.

And people on DU were poopooing me yesterday when I said this election's closest equivalent is 1932


Corrected myself: this # gets us all the way to 1933

"CDC Guidelines shouldn't get in the way of schools opening..." -Pence

Yep, that's what he just said in the taskforce presser...

We also had this from Trump earlier today:

Texas is hiding negative test numbers (hiding data)

Yet another state has begun hiding crucial data for the re-opening process:

DSHS recently informed county health departments that NEDSS will no longer share negative test results, so that county health departments can focus on managing positive cases. As a result, the quantity of negative test results will decrease substantially.


I don't know if this has been widely reported yet... Just a nugget picked from the local paper daily Covid-19 report.

We need a commitment from Biden to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Trump and his Admin

The total disregard for the rule of law needs to be addressed and their needs to be a thorough investigation of the criminal activities known and unknown at this point.

Ordinarily, I would say this is a bad idea, but these are extraordinary times.

5 Children Test Positive in Putnam County, FL on one day


A 6-year-old boy from East Palatka was among nine new cases of COVID-19 reported Sunday in Putnam County, the state Department of Health said...The nine new cases reported Sunday included three 10-year-old girls from East Palatka and an 8-year-old girl from East Palatka, according to the Department of Health. The cases were not travel related, the agency said...

This is where I grew up... When I think of that moron deSantis, I have no words.

Technology Can Help Get Us Through This

However, it's going to seem a bit creepy at first...

First is an approach being used in several Asian countries:

Our cellphones and smartphones have several means of logging our activity. GPS tracks our location, and Bluetooth exchanges signals with nearby devices. In its most basic form, cellphone tracing might go like this: If someone tests positive for COVID-19, health officials could obtain a record of that person’s cellphone activity and compare it with the data emitted by other phone owners. If officials saw any GPS overlaps (e.g., data showing that I went to a McDonald’s hot spot) or Bluetooth hits (e.g., data showing that I came within several feet of a new patient), they could contact me and urge me to self-isolate, or seek a test.

The UAE took it one step further. They use phone tracing for cases. However, they also instituted digital passes to leave home. In real time, they can literally control crowding even with vital services.
No digital pass, you are arrested and fined if you are outside your home.
