That's actually a county-by-county alert as my county's been in lockdown for a few days now. CA had more covid cases yesterday than every other *nation* than Brazil, and effectively tied India. LA County had more cases yesterday than all other US States save Texas.

Time to party!

Is that what Romans felt like when the Empire was crumbling?



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

People are ignoring stay at home orders. COVID fatigue probably.

Lock down should have come before Thanksgiving, Los Angeles County had more than 13,000 new cases yesterday - today will probably be higher. Ambulances are being turned away from ERs with up to a 2 hour wait.

It's at the point where, in some instances, people with the virus are being sent home to quarantine.

And we can thank all the numbnuts who refused to wear masks, socially distance, nor listen to science for the current fun we are all having. I'm so angry at those fools that I could spit nails.

Sadly, it means absolutely nothing to most residents. There isn't one iota of difference in the activity level today vs last week or last month. Restaurants are mostly adhering to the take-out only order, but it's not universal for sure. They've shuttered zoos, museums, some parks, but nothing else really. In the spring, the beaches, all parks, recreation areas, etc were shut down with police patrols. Nothing like that now.

It feels more like a suggestion than a demand. And that's going to mean absolutely nothing. Full circle achieved.
