NYCVG

These numbers from the Midwest are terrifying.

And the poster is correct about NYC. We ALL wear masks and believe in Science.

Trump’s nonsense about “Democrat” states is looking even more insane and illiterate now.

The Covid world tour in Wi is just beginning the next super spreader events are.

Halloween parties at the bars, its on a saturday, since Evers was over ruled on bar occupancy.

Then Thanksgiving people will get toegether and spread it more

Same for Christmas

The New Years eve that’s always one big party for the young at the bars especially in the college towns in WI

So i’m expecting a YUGE spike in late Jan or early Feb in WI unless something changes.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally last August was a yuge CV disease pit. No masks nor social distancing, and thousands of yahoos attended.

The tip of the iceberg, if Trumpcorp loses, people will come out of the woodwork to save their asses.

political parties collapse

Schlosberg first highlighted his faith in veteran anti-racist Jeremy Corbyn, saying:

Just as his parents fought alongside Jews against fascists in the Battle of Cable Street… if in this country we were ever to face again the threat of the rise of far-right extremism on that scale, where there are pitched battles in the street, I am absolutely certain that Jeremy Corbyn will be on the frontline of those battles fighting alongside his Jewish comrades whilst people like Boris Johnson and Jo Swinson will be running for cover.

Indeed, Corbyn has a long and impressive record of fighting antisemitism which stretches back for many decades. And as Labour leader, he has taken strong action to stamp out the small amount of racism that exists in the party – a record which general secretary Jennie Formby recently laid out clearly. But he has faced consistent smears from right-wing opponents who have weaponised allegations of antisemitism to attack him.

Check it out, the wikipedia page for Jeremy was updated 17 minutes ago to include this event.

TPTB would love to bury him forever.

NYCVG

Good morning everybody. Here are some of Today’s interesting numbers:

78 Million Americans have voted early so far. One million in NY State, including 500,000 in 5 days in NYC. These numbers are even more remarkable when you realie that it has been and will continue to rain most of the time. There are 4 more days to vote early.

732,000 Americans filed Unemployment claims. Slightly down from the previous weeks but what does that matter in a situation where job losses continue to pile up and no stimulus or aid of any kind will be coming.

There were 81,457 new Covid cases and 1016 deaths yesterday. The forecasts I’m hearing on TV about 100,000 new cases a day which seemed unlikely to me a few days ago, now seem all too likely.

There’s a posting down this thread which gives numbers that are truly terrifying.

FIVE DAYS TO GO UNTIL ELECTION DAY. Hang on. Stay safe from fire if you are on the West Coast and stay dry if you’re anyplace between the Gulf Coast and the East Coast.

Benny

That includes the Midwest.

I’ve been in southwest MO for the past few days (a trip planned some time ago) and it is definitely the Beatles here.

NYCVG

Since you’ve mentioned MO I spoke to my daughter this morning and she called from a line to Early Vote.

This is interesting because last week I checked online and a few sites told me that MO doesn’t have Early Voting.

Benny

I believe it is called Absentee voting. Similar to early voting.

When we lived in Missouri, you could do an “absentee ballot” by early voting at the courthouse if you wouldn’t be able to vote on election day. We did it because Hubs is always on the road. They let me vote, too. Maybe they expanded this year because of Covid?

Missed this a couple of days ago

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/27/nyregion/wfp-bernie-sanders-warren.html

Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren entered an unexpected clash on Tuesday with New York Democratic leaders over the fate of a progressive third party.

The dispute stems from a political flier paid for by the state party featuring Joseph R. Biden Jr., his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, and Senators Warren and Sanders, all smiling and pleading with New Yorkers to vote “Democratic — all the way!”

But Ms. Warren and Mr. Sanders said they were not consulted about the flier, and had they been, they would not have consented to the ad, which pushes voters to cast ballots on the Democratic Party line.

Both senators support the Biden-Harris ticket, but want ballots cast for the candidates on the Working Families Party line, which has backed them in the past.

Mr. Sanders accused the state Democratic Party, which is effectively controlled by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, of trying to sabotage the Working Families Party.

“It is absolutely unacceptable for the New York Democratic Party, which just a few short months ago supported canceling the presidential primary, to now use my image in a push to punish the Working Families Party,” Mr. Sanders, an independent from Vermont, said in a statement.

“They never asked my permission and I wouldn’t have given it if they had,” he said. “I believe New Yorkers should vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on the Working Families Party line.”

That sentiment was echoed by Kristen Orthman, a spokeswoman for Ms. Warren, who said the Massachusetts senator “didn’t approve this ad” and asked that digital versions of it “be taken down.”

Under state law, candidates in New York can collect votes on several different party lines, a system known as fusion voting. But under a new law adopted this year, political parties in New York have to earn 130,000 votes — or 2 percent of the total vote — every two years in order to automatically retain their ballot lines. Parties that do not reach that threshold would have to petition for their candidates to appear.

State Democratic officials acknowledged that they did not seek permission from either senator, or the Biden ticket, to use their images, but defended the $357,000 campaign, which also included digital advertisements using images of Senators Warren and Sanders.

Not to mention the insidious tactic of placing Joe & Kamala’s pics under the ‘D’ and Bernie and Liz’s pics under the bright red ‘R’.
Real subtle.

We see you NY Dem party, we see you…. 👀

Ossoff EVISCERATES Perdue in last night’s debate

Perdue is a jerk but I can’t get too excited about Ossoff.

Me either. But I voted for him as the lesser.

jcitybone

With Perdue actually a lot lesser.

This is desperately sad. Tell me again about the “richest country on earth.”

Benny

Maybe it’s time we drop that metric. We are the largest consumer, but not richest. The 1% skews reality.

wi62

Basically consumerist drones for the rich

Benny

wi62

And this is the “Best” the US can do for its citizens. When will people figure out its not R v D, Its the rich and powerful against the rest of us. Since the rich own both establishment parties they have them keep the R v D charade in order to keep uninformed Americans at each others throats and laugh all the way to the Bank.
