Despite the growing crisis in the administration, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is still trying to get Barrett confirmed before the election, even if nothing else gets done. He has announced the Senate will not conduct business again until October 19, meaning it cannot take up the coronavirus bill the House just passed. Nonetheless, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee will meet to consider Barrett’s nomination, despite the fact that two members of the committee are infected with coronavirus. Those two say they will quarantine for just ten days so they can emerge in time for Barrett’s confirmation hearings beginning on October 12.

And while we are watching coronavirus infect the president and those around him, it also continues to spread around the rest of the country. The United States as a whole on Friday saw the highest count of new cases since August: 54,411. Deaths are down, but still 906 Americans died on Friday from Covid-19.

Don McLean on the tragedy behind American Pie: 'I cried for two years'
  • When Don McLean was 15 years old, he had a premonition that his father was going to die. ... A few days later, his father dropped dead right in front of him. ...
  • McLean wrote it half a century ago, at the age of 24. ...
  • “If you didn’t drive the right car, if you didn’t have enough money, if you didn’t wear the right shoes. I hated those fuckers.”
  • ... could that verse equally be about his father? “You’ve hit the nail on the head,” he says. “I mean, that’s exactly right. That’s why I don’t like talking about the lyrics because I wanted to capture and say something that was almost unspeakable. It’s indescribable.” He adds: “American Pie is a biographical song.” ...
  • “Writing a song that everyone on Earth knows shouldn’t make you resentful,” he says. “But you better have a lot inside you – because it’s gonna get sucked out.”

According to the report published on Friday, 299,028 more people died from January 1, 2020, through October 3, 2020, than they expected at the beginning of the year.


The raw number of deaths in 2020 increased by roughly the same amount when compared to 2019. By adding together the weekly observed deaths reported by the CDC, it comes out that 2,486,273 Americans died in the first 40 weeks of 2020. By this point in 2019, only 2,181,385 people had died in the U.S. -- showing an increase of 304,888 deaths.

Here's a chart, then with explanation added, that illustrates the missed cases affecting the 7-day average.
.
Covid-19 early missed cases in U.S..jpg
p.s.
If some idiot actually tries for "Herd Immunity" in the U.S., which means they pretty much have given up addressing the issue, then you're looking at in the order of three million American deaths - each year - until such time as there's an effective & lasting vaccine able to be distributed to most Americans.

p.s.s.
We don't yet know how many of the Covid-19 males in their 20's, 30's and 40's are now sterile. We'll start finding that out as they discover cause to get that tested. But as cases increase the number sterile is increasing. Combine the increase that would go hand-in-hand with a "Herd Immunity" case increase, and then model the sterile affect on the U.S. population in one, two and three decades...

Anis Abobaker and Ali Ahmed Raba wrote:There is a theoretical possibility of testicular damage and subsequent infertility following COVID-19 infection. The possibility of testicular damage is caused by either direct viral invasion through binding of SARS-COV2 virus to ACE2 receptors or secondary to immunological and inflammatory response. Follow-up studies of reproductive function of recovered male patients is required to investigate this possibility.

Re: "It's Fox news to me!"

Post by Simon of the Playa » Thu Nov 05, 2020 4:45 am

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner reached out to media mogul Rupert Murdoch after Fox News called Arizona for Joe Biden on Election Night, The New York Times reports. Trump aide Jason Miller is also said to have reached out to Fox News to ask them to retract the race call, but to no avail. The assessment that Arizona’s electoral votes would go to Biden later proved to be correct. The president was reportedly left infuriated by the news, and he went on to defy the advice of aides and falsely claim victory in the election after angrily watching Biden deliver his optimistic Election Night address in Wilmington. Kushner subsequently began making calls in search of a “James Baker-like” figure who could spearhead a bid to challenge vote counts in various states, the Times reports.
