Florida’s Governor DeSantis is a hands on politician. Makes me assume nothing of consequence occurs without his consent.
This past week someone told me COVID numbers were getting better in Florida. First I heard of it. Finally got to researching the claim yesterday. The numbers were better. However, only because they were fudged. Manipulated to make Florida look better. Looking better was needed. Florida had become number one in adverse coronavirus data.
The CDC reported Florida’s latest coronavirus surge is the deadliest yet. However, Florida’s death reports reflect a significant decline.
Something stunk in Denmark!
Turns out Florida changed how it reported its COVID data to the CDC, creating an “artificial decline” in recent deaths. A new method which made Florida and its Governor look good.
Instead of reporting deaths immediately, time was taken for a death to be evaluated as such and a death certificate to be processed. In other words, the system for tallying deaths was slowed down.
Such gave the appearance of a “pandemic decline.”
Monday the CDC came out with the proper death data for the previous week. Two hundred sixty two daily deaths. Florida’s report per its “new system” was 46 deaths per day.
Who needs a leader who lies about important things to make himself look better? Especially one who is seriously being considered Presidential timber for the 2024 election.
Sacramento County, California, is another place where the COVID numbers are on the rise. No tampering involved. Though bad, honest.
School reopenings part of the problem.
Latest reports indicate 20 percent of new cases involve children. Also, African Americans are dying in higher numbers. Hospitals at near capacity.
Sacramento County is averaging 500 new cases per day and 5 new deaths per day.
To the San Francisco Bay area. Ivermectin popular! The horse and cow dewormer is “flying” off the shelves in stock and feed stores. Many perceive ivermectin a “miracle drug.” Especially those who fear and refuse to be vaccinated. Yet when inflected, run to purchase the anti-parasite drug.
The American Medical Association is “begging” people to stop taking the drug. The Association keeps reminding those taking it that they are not of the animal kingdom: “You are not a horse!”
Housing is a significant Key West problem. Especially reasonable rentals.
Santa Clara condominiums are located on Northside Drive behind the Sears Shopping Center.
The City believes the condominiums are “unfit for human habitation.” A hearing has been scheduled for September 13 to review the matter. It has been called via a Petition to declare the building an unsafe dwelling not fit for human habitation.
Recent inspection of Santa Clara has discovered exposed steel, major concrete cracks in walls and stair walls, unevenly distributed loads in floors and ceilings, and an uneven stairwell.
Santa Clara consists of 111 units. Should it be condemned, it will be next to impossible to find new condos/apartments for those who will be looking. The scarcity of rentals already over the top. Next to impossible to find rentals as it is. Most of those “legally removed” will be forced to leave the area contributing further to Key West’s lack of working help.
On this day in 1953, the Secretary of the Navy issued reprimands to a Rear Admiral who had been Commander of the Key West Naval Base and a Lt. Commander who was a former legal officer at the Base.
Each was found guilty of mishandling the investigation into the Charity Carnival Stag Show which turned into a sexual orgy.
Sort of a what goes around comes around situation. The Navy was constantly on the backs of local police enforcement to close down the various area whore houses which Navy personnel frequented. The whore houses best customers. Now the Navy itself sponsors a charity event which the sailors attended. An orgy results!
The whore houses should not have been blamed. The customers should have.
Recall poet Amanda Gorman. The 22 year old young lady who recited poetry written by her at Biden’s inauguration. She had been “discovered” by the President’s wife who recommended her husband have Amanda participate. Amanda was that good!
And so she was!
Amanda now 23. It was announced yesterday she signed a 3 year contract to be the face of Estee Lauder.
Success beyond belief! God bless her. God bless also Mrs. Biden who recognized Amanda’s talent.
It is time to “pack” the Supreme Court. The U.S. will not survive the Court as presently constituted.
In one week, the Court has forced 11 million households to face eviction and effectively overturned Roe v. Wade in the middle of the night.
Roe v. Wade was not overturned per se. However the Court’s near midnight decision does now allow Texas to by pass Roe’s requirement’s allowing abortions.
John Roberts has been Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for many years. Though a Republican, he has been a middle roader in many of the Court’s decisions. In recent years voting with Democrats on cases of consequence.
Without question, he has been the “leader” of the Court in practice as well as title.
No more. Trump’s 3 appointments have brushed him aside.
Another reason for increasing the number of Justices.
Ida did a number on New York and New Jersey. Death toll so far 44.
China no place for gays. China officially evidenced its “anti-gay” sentiment by two actions this past week.
China banned men considered “girly” from appearing on TV. The Communist Party banned “sissy men” in order to save China’s “revolutionary culture.”
Enjoy your day!
