Flori-duh has 9,000 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hrs. Time to shut-down again and make masks mandatory. Hmm

Texas, too. Arizona's ICU beds are all full, which means anybody else who gets sick is SOL. California has a lot of cases, but it also has 1/5th the population of the US, so it's not that bad per capita.

Saw this coming from a mile away. Immature people are tired of the lockdown, so they rush out to mask-less gatherings and the state gets a huge spike. But they don't really have to go back to lockdown. Governors just need to LISTEN to the Public Health authorities for once, and do what the experts say. Ideally, Trump would be dictating all this, but he's the biggest baby of them all.

First of all, we need emergency legislation to make it a crime punishable by prison time to do anything that increases the chances of virus spread. That includes refusing to wear a mask (and cover nose and mouth) in public, gather inside buildings (like churches) without social distancing and masks, and especially file lawsuits fighting those measures. All these things may seems like constitutional rights to their proponents, but they are really attempted murder.

Then they need to put the kibosh on opening schools, daycare, bars, and in-dining restaurants. Basically, any place where people take off their masks and congregate.

Finally, Public Health authorities need to adopt a system of quarantine for infected people that puts them in hotels or summer camps, etc. away from their families. A huge number of these cases are family-spread because we send people with minor cases home to "voluntary quarantine" with their families. How many people know how to create an effective quarantine? Almost nobody. And the family of an infected person needs to be locked down completely for 3 weeks and get tested to see if they become infected. If that requires food delivery and Public Health locks on all their doors and windows or ankle trackers, so be it. Contact tracing and isolation is key.

If we do just those thing we would have the virus licked in a couple of months. Over 120,000 lives lost so far because we didn't do them. Shall we have another 120,000 dead? A million? How many is enough before we do what is necessary?

Democrat hoax! Nothing wrong happening. These are all young people, so it’s a good thing!

Time to stop testing and stop admitting people to hospitals for the fake disease.

You take these two simple steps and you’ll be amazed how quickly the numbers will look much better. It’ll fade a way, like a miracle!

Winning!

If it was just a matter of Natural Selection in Action, then I would say fine: Let these morons all go out and catch the virus. It could only improve the herd.

But unfortunately, that's not the way this virus works. A moron without a mask is very likely going to infect a lot of people with masks. If you force him to wear a mask, the transmission rate goes way down. That's why I say not wearing a mask in public is essentially attempted murder. It's like walking around with a loaded pistol and firing it at random times, and not in the air. We need to treat it like what it is, legally.

You have the right to own a pistol, and the right to take it to the firing range to shoot. You don't have the right to shoot it into crowds.

My industrious wife is planting a commercial hemp crop again this year with the intent of harvesting CBD bud. Last year the seed she got produced about 50% male plants, which don't make buds so they have to be pulled as soon as they can be recognized. The dirty little fuukers also get the girls pregnant and they spend a bunch of their energy making seeds.

This year she purchased "feminized" seed, which only turns into girl hemplings, so the crop should be twice as big with less work. The strain she bought is named "Stormy Daniels".

Trump promotes via Twitter, then deletes a white power video.

Fatass just can't help himself, his inner white nationalist is just too strong.

Hmm

She still needs to go look at all the plants, to watch for balls on those male plants that sneak in. Feminized seeds don't work perfectly and one male can pollinate a huge number of females. You have a couple of weeks between male pollen balls appearing and release of pollen.

It might be a better option to propagate by cloning. You clone an adult female plant (that you know is female). Cloning weed is very easy, and then you get a bunch of the very same plant. But I guess that depends on how many plants she is growing. 100 would be easy to clone. 1000 would require some employees. Depends on if she has a greenhouse to raise the clones before planting, or if it's a field crop.
