Fourth of July weekend and there's nothing to do?

Everywhere you look pools and beaches are closed. It's tragic, really... 

... 

... 

If this shutdown continues much longer, the toll in lives from bankruptcies, broken homes, broken families and suicides will be far greater than from the virus itself.

With the Sunshine State’s COVID-19 surge gathering strength like a monstrous hurricane, emergency rooms across the pandemic epicenter of South Florida are experiencing more and more patients in their 20s and 30s carrying the coronavirus. That squares with repeated explanations for case surges in the state by Gov. Ron DeSantis—that reckless, often young people are a big part of the problem. While DeSantis does acknowledge they pose a risk to others, the implication of his appraisal, critics say, is that the state’s hospital system is not in danger of being overloaded.

But some local hospitals have already reached or are nearing capacity, and these facilities are processing people like Rodriguez who took part in a reopening their government endorsed—only to get infected and exhibit mild symptoms. Such patients are often being quickly discharged, posing that very risk of spreading the deadly respiratory disease to elder family members, significant others, friends, and strangers should they not properly quarantine, health experts warned. 

In other words, the state’s health-care system isn’t yet underwater. But it could be soon, according to hospital workers, internal correspondence, and experts familiar with state medical data. And the people sending asymptomatic younger people on their way have a front-row seat to the danger wrought by a reopening that, experts say, set the state on course for disaster.

Wuddya get when two morons bang heads?


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Mayor Bill de Blasio - two of the biggest, craziest fuckin' goofballs ever elected to office -  are engaged in another public spat - this time after Hizzoner called the lawmaker “just wrong” when she accused him of fudging his $1 billion cut to the NYPD budget. During an interview on CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday morning, de Blasio was asked about a statement from the congresswoman in which she said he was using “budget tricks” and “funny math” to make it look like he had defunded the city’s police department. “Well, she’s just wrong,” he said.

“The facts are, we took money from the NYPD, put it into youth programs. We are reducing the size of the NYPD but still in a way that can keep us safe.”

The jury will  be back pretty fuckin' quick 
on that one, ya jackass...

Senility is becoming an overt line of attack for the first time in a modern U.S. presidential campaign.

Why it matters: As Americans live longer and work later into life and there's more awareness about the science of aging, we're also seeing politicians test the boundaries of electability. Biden is 77; Trump, now 74, already is the oldest person to assume the U.S. presidency.

Driving the news: As President Trump ramps up insinuations that his general election rival is doddering, Joe Biden turned the tables on Tuesday, saying Trump “doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on” with his own briefings about Russia and U.S. service members. At the same news conference where he took a swipe at Trump, Biden was asked by a reporter if he has been tested for cognitive decline.

"I've been tested and I'm constantly tested," Biden responded, adding that "I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I'm running against."

A Trump campaign Twitter feed played back the clip and asked, "Did Biden take a cognitive test? What were the results? Why is he getting frequently tested?"

Pitchfork-wielding protesters descend on wealthy Hamptons estates 

We better start paying more attention to shit like this before it gets completely outta hand. Someone somewhere is starting something.


It really does make ya wonder who, in fact, comes up with the ideas for this kinda class warfare bullshit, doesn't it? 

A caravan of protesters — some wielding plastic pitchforks — descended on the Hamptons Wednesday to blast the rich and decry the nation’s rising income inequality. More than 100 drivers and about 200 marchers paid a visit to the homes of some of the world’s wealthiest people, including ex-New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

“Tax the rich, not the poor!” the protesters chanted outside Bloomberg’s $20 million Southhampton mansion, with some calling the failed presidential candidate a “looter.”

Iowa is now the first state to permanently legalize to-go alcoholic drinks. Gov. Kim Reynolds announced Monday that she’d signed a bill allowing bars to continue selling alcoholic drinks for take-out and delivery for off-premise consumption.

Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all bars, indoor restaurant operations, movie theaters and museums to shut down in 19 counties for at least three weeks on Wednesday amid a surge in coronavirus cases. 

The revised stay-at-home orders come after California bars, stores, restaurants and salons reopened for the first time on June 12 after a three-month lockdown. Since then, the number of COVID-19 cases have begun to rise again, increasing nearly 50 per cent over the last two weeks, with a 43 per cent spike in hospitalizations

I really do like living here. Florida - especially North Central Florida, almost has a citrussy kinda wild west vibe to it. It's an interesting part of the state that most people don't even know exists. It's mostly farm and citrus and cattle and horses. Oh - and old people.

An newlywed couple taking wedding photos were swept away into the ocean in Laguna Beach, California.


 The couple were posing on a rock when a large wave overtook them. The Laguna Beach Fire Department and lifeguards rescued them from the water. Beaches in Laguna Beach will be closed on Fourth of July because of significant surges in coronavirus cases in the state.
