You know what we have heard very little about after states shut down and people started to socially distance themselves because of this pandemic?

Schrödinger's tRump
Author: BobR    Date: 2020-05-20 12:00:00

Most readers of this blog are familiar with "Schrödinger's cat". The idea is that if you put a cat and something that could kill it into a box, you won't know whether the cat is dead or alive until you open the box and look inside. It's a thought experiment meant to demonstrate the problem with trying to measure quantum mechanics. The idea is that the act of observing (or measuring) something can change its state, thus making the observation measurement flawed. This notion can be applied to measuring electrical current, temperature, etc., although to a much lesser degree.

How does this apply to tRump? Monday, tRump declare that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine for about 10 days. That would correspond to the date when it was announced that tRump's personal valet had tested positive for Coronavirus. He stated subsequently that he was taking it as a "preventative".

Never mind that tests show that it's efficacy is nil, and positive results are strictly anecdotal. The few somewhat controlled studies have showed no difference in rates of improvement between the drug and a placebo.

Focus Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 05/15/2020 13:11:00

This week has been overwhelming, then again the last 3+ years has been. I can't even wrap my brain around the new narrative he's finally written for the crap that is "Obamagate" but know that his cult will follow everything he says. Its infuriating. Sad. Disgusting. And depressing.

What if.

This is all crap. I wake up every morning with hope that something good is happening. Every morning I find myself let down.

Sleight of Hand
Author: BobR    Date: 05/13/2020 13:01:18

As adults, everyone knows that magicians aren't really using magic. They use stagecraft and "sleight of hand" to perform illusions that sometimes boggle the mind and leave us scratching our heads. That latter technique (sleight of hand) is a method where the get the audience focused on one hand while the other is pulling a ball out their pocket. In a word - it's distraction.

That also appears to be this administration's sole technique for dealing with the coronavirus epidemic (with help from his ardent supporters). They've already badly bungled the response by disbanding the pandemic response unit (that President Obama had put in place), and never took it seriously until it was too late. So while the scramble trying unsuccessfully to put the toothpaste back into the tube, they are desperately trying to shift blame and provide some kind of red meat for the tRump cultists (it IS an election year, after all).

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

While the Holyoke Veteran's Home in Massachusetts continues to be a shitshow, today's focus is slightly more west.
