A million daid across this world of shit & pain, 20% of them (206,000+ as we type) just from our shithole nation, which has less than 4% of the planet's population. How does that happen?

Frontiers Of FreedomSoon to be required viewing for every American, a look at how great the America of Donald Trump's ragged synapses is, & how it got to be that way, before everything went to hell around 1950 or so.The goofy synthesizer muzak adds to the general weirdness, but one must assume there was music & quite possibly narration for this lovely little pageant. Save your imagination, we found it:This version has title cards, irritating time code & a different male narrator.Neither professional version has the Plymouth Rock shtik & other stuff in the first five mins. of the home flicks. And for the hell of it (Or the complete documentary experience.) the Santa Fe "Indian village" & other stuff. Like a Powell & Market cable car, which was surprising.The whole mess apparently was an inspiration for effing Disneyland.

[Wake up, sheeple!!]Undeterred by mounting criticism over his repeated dismissals of the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump doubled down on his claim that the virus will “go away” on Tuesday. Even if it doesn’t, he said, “herd mentality” will take over and save us all. The president made the remarks during a 90-minute town hall event hosted by ABC News late Tuesday in which he repeated many of the same rosy predictions that have previously been proven wrong. Apparently conflating “herd mentality” with “herd immunity”—which occurs when a large enough proportion of the population has built up immunity to an infectious disease, often through vaccination—the president insisted the country will recover from the pandemic even without a vaccine.“It would go away without the vaccine … but it’s going to go away a lot faster with it,” Trump said, adding that “with time, it goes away.” “And many deaths,” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos noted. The president continued on as if he had not heard the remark, explaining that “you’ll develop like a herd mentality. It’s going to be herd-developed, and that’s going to happen, that will all happen …. But I really believe we’re rounding the corner.” When Stephanopoulos reminded him that even one of the lead members of the White House’s own coronavirus task force, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has disagreed with that assessment, Trump said: “But you know a lot of people do agree with me.”

LSU coach Ed Orgeron: ‘Most’ of team has contracted coronavirus — LSU coach Ed Orgeron said on Tuesday that most of his team has contracted COVID-19. — "Not all of our players, but most of our players have caught it," Orgeron told reporters. "I think that hopefully they won't catch it again, and hopefully they're not out for games."
Asked later for further clarification, Orgeron said he didn't know the exact percentage of players who have had the coronavirus.
"Hopefully that once you catch it, you don't get it again," he said. "I'm not a doctor. I think they have that 90-day window, so most of the players that have caught it, we do feel like they'll be eligible for games."

11 SEPTEMBER to 31 DECEMBER 1945[Source]
Between the signing of the capitulation documents on board the battleship Missouri (BB-63) and the end of the year, Japanese garrisons on the Asiatic mainland and on by-passed islands scattered throughout the western Pacific surrender. Occupation of Japan progresses and the administrative organization of the U.S. naval forces in the area is adjusted where necessary to enable the Navy to carry out occupation and demilitarization duties. Naval combat strength shrinks as demobilization procedures are set in motion. On 10 October 1945 Headquarters of the Commander in Chief U.S. Fleet (Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King) is disestablished.

Remember when you had to track down a mimeograph machine to copy your multi-thousand-word screeds before you could tack them to a telephone pole? Ha! Now you can't even find a wooden 'phone pole to which you could attach your screeds, but you can crank them out on your $50.00 printer and tape them to metal poles. Also in your nasty stupid post-literate world, colorful pictures & moronic memes can be used, rather than typing your individual paranoias in elaborate detail. Nice world of shit & pain you've made for yourselves, you fucking jerks.
