  1. Wow. That's seriously messed up in that they distinguish between the right kind of fascist and the wrong kind of fascist.
    Welcome to the internet.

  2. I've heard of a program that will highlight different commentators in different colours depending on whether they are the right sort of fascist or the wrong sort of fascist. Anyone who isn't one or the other is considered to be bad.

    But I've not heard that NBF is on their radar.

  3. I understand there are downvote lists you can subscribe to if you're a leftist. You open up your email in the morning, follow a bunch of links, downvote the comments they lead to without even reading them, then go about your day feeling good about yourself.

  4. Genomic tracing has authorities believing that there has been Delta variant community transmission for 2 weeks. I still have not seen a stampede to the hospital, rather, stampedes to the toilet roll aisle. There has been a fair amount of praise for the "hard and fast" way this government has handled covid, but the population are still idiots. I know, I see them every single day.

  5. There are often a lot of downvotes that have no feasible connection to the comment just made.

    I guess some person didn't like what you said a week ago, so they saw your name again and downvoted.

  6. I'm not suggesting it's a good thing.

    If an Earthquake destroys 70% of the housing in a city, this increases the value of the remaining housing, but only the most evil of supervillains views this as an improvement. (Now that I think about it, this was actually the plot of a superman movie.)

    Nor am I suggesting that I live particularly high up the slopes in this analogy.

  7. I wonder,
    “IF”, there was a column in a spreadsheet that listed which political party was dying more from Covid related illness, which party it would be?

    I mean it’s just another column in a .xls, like sex, race, age, hair color, diabetes, cancer, emphysema, lung disease, obesity etc?
    It would take an actuary a millisecond to determine who we should be protecting.

  8. Fox news and republican politicians are hoping for as many deaths as possible in order to make Biden look bad. There are lots of ignorant dopes out there who are willing to volunteer.

  9. Meh, my city & state has never done lockdowns, I haven't stopped working since I started working full time, which was 20 years ago. Glad I'm not a anti-science Democrat who lives in fear.

  10. Yeah, Iceland is doing so well.

    But with ~360k people, it's far easier to vaccinate everyone and control the spread.

  11. If it's the Trump supporters refusing vaccination, maybe they're not so uneducated after all, in addition to bearing arms, and reading bibles.

    In NYC the least vaccinated ethnic group is African Americans. de Blasio's vaccine passport will disadvantage them disproportionately, so by democrat's own principles is racist. Blacks are not able to handle getting ID to vote, but vaccine passports… problem!

  12. The point is, Florida is allowing it's citizens to carry on with their lives as they see fit. Eventually, this will be the case everywhere, or lots of people will die, not of covid, but of starvation, and exposure.

  13. India is looking good in terms of cases per million, and deaths per million.

    Based on my reading, India is embracing ivermectin for prophylactic use, and infection therapy to a greater extent than any other nation. Ivermectin was noted as having activity against RNA viruses long before this pandemic(links below), so the CDC knows it would be worth testing. You hear nothing about it from the MSM. Seems like a story to me.

    Ivermectin seems to be more effective prophylaxis than the mrna vaccines when taken twice monthly at between .3, and .4 mg/kg. Either it's true, or there are a lot of
    lying researchers.

    I searched the term "ivermectin CDC". The third return was the CDC page on covid therapeutic options. The string ivermectin did not appear on that page. This shows how biased Google is. Curiously, the CDC seems to have nothing to say regarding cv19, and IVM. I guess they are not allowed to say anything positive, but are afraid to say anything negative, because eventually the truth will be known. CDC has already lost enough credibility.

    HIV-1 and dengue virus

    and for flavivirus

  14. All I know is that Florida is turning into a black hole, and Desantis refuses to come to grips with the facts.

  15. I suspect it's got a lot to do with both the vaccine AND prior infections reducing the population's vulnerability to new variants. Having had Alpha doesn't guarantee I won't get Lamda, but it makes it a lot less likely.

    Also, sad but true, we've already killed off the people who are must vulnerable to any variant.

  16. Really, the "(cases/deaths) in the last 7 days /1 M pop" are the interesting columns. By those metrics, looking at just the countries in the screenshot, Brazil isn't doing bad at all regarding cases. It's in the bottom quarter regarding deaths, but it's not a terrible number and it seems to be declining slowly.

    This is a good thing; Brazil does not need any factoids to distract it from the very deep Constitutional crisis it is in.

  17. Well, sure, it increases the value of the work ethic, by more grossly reducing the productivity of those who don't have a lot of it.

    While that is in some sense an improvement in terms of justice, it isn't an improvement in terms of the overall economy, we NEED that social and direct pressure induced work! 

    And given the amount of income redistribution going on, quite a few of the diligent may see net reductions in personal welfare as a result, too.

    One positive thing I see coming out of this, though, is that it may be the final straw that breaks the urbanization cycle. If people are working remotely, and crowded cities are especially prone to disease propagation, why have cities? We only had them in the first place due to the need for people to be near each other to work together. That's largely gone now, but the downsides of cities remain.

  18. For political reasons, the US medical community took their credibility, doused it with gasoline, and set fire to it. They'll be a long, long time rebuilding it, and maybe even a long time accepting that they NEED to rebuild it.

  19. Not looking nearly as bad as last year, so far; The current peak is about as bad as last year's low point, it only looks bad compared to early July this year.

    Still to be seen is whether it IS a peak, or the rates will keep going up.

  20. It's just crazy harping on gross numbers when countries vary in population by a factor of as much as several thousand.

  21. The big difference is that the US has more than enough vaccines but due to politics a large portion of the population refuse to take it.

  22. I got downvoted for honestly reporting what my experience with Covid was like? I guess some people just don't like accurate information.

    Age 62, overweight, (But regular exercise and vitamins.) and it was a two day head cold. Came on really fast, in the morning I passed my screening temperature at work, by afternoon I was sick as a dog. Slept the whole next day.

    Two days later I was feeling fine, except for being bored. A week later I found myself out of breath bringing in the garbage can, so I can testify you do take a hit to your stamina.

    So I devoted myself to regular exercise to rebuild, and last week I was hiking at up to 10,000 feet without difficulty, except that I got a bit out of breath running up significant slopes. Inspiration Point was worth the hard breathing, though.

    It's important to realize that Covid isn't a big deal for most people, even though it can kill. It's only a serious risk if you have significant co-morbidities.

  23. to me only the death/1M is of real interrest.
    India which is like not reporting 90 of their deaths as at least 60% of their people is of lesser value, is doing extremely well here.

  24. Yes, but Brazil is in a long steep fall, while the US is on the rise. The two are almost crossing paths

    Brazil just surpassed the US in number of vaccinated adults, although we still lag behind the US in total vaccinated, partly because we are enforcing a 12 weeks wait period between Astrazeneca and Pfizer shots.

  25. Actually you have got the vaccine at the best time, your immune response is at the strongest now at the time when the Delta is peaking.

  26. After lockdown it only increased by 600%, so that's a huge fall from the previous infinite rate of increase.

  27. de-value work ethic and productivity

    The exact opposite I think. This will increase the value of the work ethic.

    The social structure of the workplace is in many ways a substitute for individual work ethic. Even if you're not motivated today, you still end up doing a lot of work because of social and direct hierarchal pressure.

    Now that everyone is expected to be a self starter, those people with a work ethic will have a major advantage over those who will slack off.

  28. 1000% seems a bit nuts – influenze deaths over last 10 year was 20k to 50k+ per year – maybe double to treble for covid as background indefinitely…

  29. more concerned with long-term socio-economic cultural systems – phase-out of in-class teaching, human-integrated-assembly-line manufactuing, in-office professional collaborative culture, and other such work-group systesm — NOT equivalent to zoom, etc. Also, the valuing of remote work will necessarily de-value work ethic and productivity — even if some kind of work level requirements are established at each firm. People necessarily work less without a surrounding 'everyone is working' vibe – and key-counters, progress-watcher algorithms never do well….

  30. I had Covid back in February. Worst part was the 103 degree cabin fever. I was over most of the symptoms in a couple days, (Though it took a couple months of exercise to get all my stamina back.) but the quarantine really sucked.

  31. "Weekly deaths from COVID are highest in Indonesia, Brazil, Russia and then the USA.

    The USA has the highest weekly official COVID case count."

    But what sensible person cares about counts that haven't been adjusted for population? We're 156 out of over 200 on deaths per million, and 23rd out of as many for cases per million in the last week. We're actually doing remarkably well, we're just a big country.

    And, seriously, does anybody sane believe the numbers out of China? Odds are their numbers on both cases and deaths are worse than ours, they're just lying.

  32. not convinced that timing was inspiring for this recent wave, going into the Fall/ School/ College/ 'significant population going inside' Events…
    the big one, bisected by the most recent New Year's appeared to be 3 – 4 months in breadth – which mean this may apogee after Oktoberfest but before Hallowe'en parties. Though recently, the deaths and hospitilizations seemed to be less severe on a per-case basis. More infected, less seriously sick, less seriously dead?

  33. I completed the Pfizer shots a few weeks back. Still keeping the precautions, same as my immediate family.

    It really stinks to be waiting to be freer this summer, and have delta back in town exactly now.

    But it is what it is. I'd ceased being so worried, though. Not a change of routine, just of feeling. Vaccines still are very effective in reducing IFR, and I hope more people will see the benefit and get the shot. If not, well delta will reach them anyway.

    We will have to learn to live with this bug in the long term, and take the necessary precautions to reduce the risk.

    As everyone finally gets it, we will see a reduction again. Until some populated place incubates another virulent variant. But we will know the music and be probably more prepared by then.
