Grim Florida Records Recount Lonely Deaths at Home

Source: New York Times

A 71-year-old woman with nausea who was sent home from the emergency room, even though a doctor wanted to admit her. A 63-year-old nurse who was self-isolating while she waited for results from her coronavirus test. A 77-year-old man who was prescribed antibiotics by a doctor in another state for his fever and dry cough.
All were found unresponsive at home — the nurse on the sofa, where she was found by her husband — their lives claimed by Covid-19 before they ever had a chance to check into the hospital.

The New York Times and other news outlets obtained the descriptions of the deaths — the first such statewide data from anywhere in the country — through a public records request. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which oversees the state Medical Examiners Commission, redacted the 203 pages to keep the descriptions and probable causes of death private.
Florida has some of the strongest laws in the nation protecting the public’s right to view government records. Complete information from medical examiners on deaths has never before been kept secret. But the administration of Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, has not been eager to release some coronavirus records. The state also initially refused to release information on nursing homes where outbreaks occurred.

I know a couple of Right Wingnuts who insist Liberals are being manipulated and incited to Civil War

WTF?

Mean while, there's the camo wearing, weapon carrying sheep confusing governance with tyranny on the part of the states. They're ready to "defend Democracy" and jail governors while pretending the size of their jockstraps are somehow confirmed by their AK47s, the Russian made weapons that substitute for all their insecurities.

I ask them, what will us yoga mat carrying, Sushi eating liberals do to incite a war? Throw Tofu at the Capitol Building Screamers?

How did things get so crazy so fast?

Violent campaign video shows Trump attacking and decapitating news organizations and journalists.

An unsuccessful attempt to make this horror tolerable by stealing from the Star Wars theme ends up making it even more egregious.

I've thought about it. He DID drain the swamp like he said he would.

He drained the water, scooped up all the bottom feeders and gave them jobs working for him.

The stable genius with a deadly hunch about Hydroxychloriquine says it's safe for states to reopen

SNIP-

"President Trump on Sunday sought to reassure Americans that it is safe for states to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, offering support to protesters who have railed against the lockdowns across the country.

“I really believe that you can go to parks, you can go to beaches . . . [if] you stay away a certain amount,” Trump said during a Fox News Channel town hall at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington."

###

So, be sure to stay away from parks and beaches for a 'certain amount', friends. And, just to be sure it's the right amount, maybe we should ask the Coronavirus to post the hours that it will be at the various parks and beaches so we can stay away during those times.

67 Days ago Trump said the US was in "very good shape".

He thought $2.5Billion was far more than enough to see us through the pandemic.

"I think that whole situation will start working out. Lot of talent, a lot of brainpower is being put behind it," Trump said.

Looking back, it's not hard to see how things could have been done very differently.

Psychologist John Gartner: Trump is a "sexual sadist" who is "actively engaging in sabotage"

Link to full story below.

SNIP -

As a mental health professional, what do you see when you watch Trump's so-called briefings about the coronavirus pandemic?

Trump is both denying responsibility by saying things such as, "I take no responsibility. We've done everything right." But at the same time, Trump is also sabotaging the efforts to stop the coronavirus pandemic. This is a very important aspect of Trump's behavior. Trump is not just deflecting blame onto the governors, he is actively interfering with the governors' ability to do their job. Trump is not just incompetent. He is actively engaging in sabotage.

If Donald Trump is primarily obsessed with omnipotent destruction, how is that fueling his behavior?

Donald Trump has to create a field of negative corrupting energy around himself. For example, he pressures the scientific experts to bend the truth to his dreamworld during his press conferences. The scientists are basically Trump's hostages. The American people are hostages as well to Donald Trump. We are being abused by him. We know that Trump is lying. We know that he's doing nothing to help us. We feel helpless to do anything to stop him. It is causing collective mental despair. In this way Donald Trump is inducing feelings of rage and outrage — and he keeps doing it. It is not that all Americans are suckers or dupes, it is that Trump is a master at such cruel and manipulative behavior. Donald Trump knows exactly what he is doing to the physical and emotional health of the American people.
I envision Donald Trump as a megalomaniacal puppet master. The American people are his little marionettes. The American people must acknowledge that relationship to cut the strings.

It's in the Notes of His Daily Briefs Since January. He Refused to Take it Seriously. Thousands Died

Snip-
"The repeated warnings were conveyed in issues of the President’s Daily Brief, a sensitive report that is produced before dawn each day and designed to call the president’s attention to the most significant global developments and security threats.

For weeks, the PDB — as the report is known — traced the virus’s spread around the globe, made clear that China was suppressing information about the contagion’s transmissibility and lethal toll, and raised the prospect of dire political and economic consequences. "

Serious question. If we reclaim the Senate and the Presidency what are the chances that

Obama would accept a Supreme Court nomination and be appointed to that body? And, if that happens, what are the chances of overturning Citizens United?
I need some hope to hang a hat on and I figure if I'm projecting my thoughts into the future I don't want them to be thoughts of trepidation. I want to focus on thoughts of positive change.

Thinking about corporations running our government and the world lead my mind to really dark spaces where the toll on human life through corporate greed, climate change, slave wages, lack of medical care, etc. will make this pandemic look like a cake walk.

I want to unleash my mind for an exploratory walk through a different world.
What do you think? Is there a chance? Because thinking about that feels pretty good.
