Alabama students throwing 'COVID parties' to see who gets infected

It's been all downhill since the Scopes Trial, & now we come to this:

Students in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have been attending parties in the city and surrounding area as part of a disturbing contest to see who can catch the virus first, a city council member told ABC News on Wednesday.

Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry said students have been organizing "COVID parties" as a game to intentionally infect each other with the contagion that has killed more than 127,000 people in the United States. She said she recently learned of the behavior and informed the city council of the parties occurring in the city.

She said the organizers of the parties are purposely inviting guests who have COVID-19.

"They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense," McKinstry said. "They're intentionally doing it."


There's a reason why Repub./ Fox suddenly for mask wearing.

They changed their posture practically overnight because Karl Rove warned them they could lose the election
unless they became anti-Covid, sez the twittersphere.

Apparently Rove is still a thing with them, albeit being low profile.

I was out shopping today and got a receipt worth saving.

At the local drug store, picked up my prescription for a "controlled" drug.
Normally they have you sign for it, showing you got it.
but Covid, so only drive-in window used.

The receipt I got, has, on the "customer signature" line, a stamp, saying "Per Covid-19"

I'm real curious how that was worked out, and how widespread it is.

Gonna put it in the box that has my mother's WW2 ration stamp books, and my Grand Ma's Depression era diary.
Maybe the grand kids will find it interesting.

Trump and Ivanka make money from every death.

This, from https://www.law360.com/articles/1268005
( a paywall, but Firefox has a "reader" that often goes past paywalls)

Ivanka Trump Marks LLC owns the mark "Ivanka Trump" in China, Reg. No. 23308695, for coffins. The cradle-to-grave registration also includes bumper guards for cribs and baby pillows. The application was filed March 28, 2017, and registration issued May 7, 2018.

It's a family affair; Donald Trump, individually, has Chinese registrations for coffins —
and identity bracelets for hospitals. ...

Ha..that church he is speaking to lied about its "99% virus removal" system

Sunday to the church’s Facebook page, senior pastor Luke Barnett claimed that the church had installed air purifiers that “kill 99.9 percent of COVID in 10 minutes.” Standing shoulder to shoulder with the church’s chief operations officer, Brendon Zastrow, Barnett explains that the church contracted with a local company called CleanAir EXP to install the purifiers. “When you come into our auditorium, 99 percent of COVID is gone, killed—if it was there in the first place,” Barnett says in the clip. “You can know when you come here you’ll be safe and protected. Thank God for great technology and thank God for being proactive.” Neither man wears a mask as they talk.

The video was later removed from the church’s Facebook page. “We understand there is recent confusion around the claims made by one of our customers around our laboratory testing,” the CEO of CleanAir EXP, Tim Bender, said in an email statement. “Our patented technology leads to a 99.9% elimination of airborne coronavirus surrogates. We do not, however, eliminate COVID-19 at this time.” [/divhttps://slate.com/human-interest/2020/06/dream-city-church-phoenix-trump-young-americans-air-purifiers-covid.html

Barr, the street sweeper behind the GOP elephant in the shitshow circus,

I saw that phrase elsewhere,and wanted to share it with y'all.

Esp. in light of the focus on him today.


Here's a supposed head count for the rally....

Jester Actual is trustworthy,IMHO..I've been following his treats for over a year.


This image is a bit too accurate....

Ouch...that's gotta sting..


Parscale caught lying about Tulsa rally numbers.

maybe he is trying to make trump feel good, who knows.

Parscale, on twitter, claims that 200,000 tickets have been reserved for the Tulsa rally.

A bit later he claimed 300,000.

In a town of 400,000 population

In a venue that holds 19,000.
