So my daughters planned to go see my mom through her screen door at a distance only to discover their cousins (31 and 29) had been over for B'fast this morning with CFA and sat with her at the kitchen table in the breakfast room.

If she were to catch it I am not sure how to deal with such rampant ignorance. She was hospitalized for pneumonia for over a week last september. I guess bro's family assumes we are paranoid and nothing bad can happen until it does.

I had gotten rainbow shard at the store as it was available and I know how to cook it (bacon and shallots). I hadn't realized just how lovely the stalks in a variety of colors was.

Cuz I know ya'll hungry for more COVID 19 data.

Iceland has tested about 4% of its population of 364,000. Can't tell if it's random or just approximately representative.

Of the 14,635 test results, 6.6% are positive. OF those positive, nearly 50% are asymptomatic. Of the 50% with symptoms, the vast majority are minor. Only 2 deaths.

btw, I am in awe at the TK/MM interchange. I've seen this a hundred times on the blog where someone fights TK over what they think he said and TK insists on fighting on what he exactly, precisely said.
And then the fight goes on for several pages ...
I participated in one of these some months back, but when I saw what I was doing, I was able to avoid ever doing it again (so far!). TK is like a magnet LOL.

You can thank the president and his team for this.

Also, today's batch of test results here in Oregon is 5.2% positive, for a cumulative positive rate of 4.7%. Deaths are now at 13 (2.7% of those testing positive).

Chef Thomas Keller does rainbow chard stems sous vide.

Bay leaves, thyme and garlic cloves into the bag with the stems, 185 degrees for 1 1/4 hrs, then to an ice bath. Remove from bag when ready to finish in a pan with olive oil, salt, white pepper and a few drops of champagne vinegar. I haven't tried it but it looks nice in the picture. He places them on top of sous vide cooked apple balls (185 for 30 min).

Btw, he does the chard stems in 3 separate bags, I guess so the colors don't blend into each other.

This is Massie's interview with Shannon Bream, which I watched, and with which I am not impressed.

1. I am sure Mark Meadows could have explained a quorum to the President, or Mulvaney, or Newt Gingrich, or any one of 50 other former GOP reps, so that was a disingenuous statement.

2. My point about the danger of them traveling (especially since we had 2 more test positive) wasn't for the representatives, as he assumes, but for the people that the infected people would have come in contact with, like airline people, cabbies, etc.

3. I don't think he acquits himself as well as Threadkiller thinks. (This is probably my confirmation bias, but watching the interview didn't convince me. However, because he AGREES with Threadkiller and Old Lurker and others, they find him convincing, which is also confirmation bias.)

4. His comment about McCarthy wanting to be the next Speaker was insulting and horse manure, as far as I am concerned. So what? He is the Minority Leader and is doing what his president okayed and was satisfied with.

5. We do not have a line item veto so President Trump can sign it or veto it. Period. A veto would have been a disaster for the fall, as well as the GOP representatives voting it down. I prefer we hang onto the Senate and win back the House, even if McCarthy gets the Speakership! The Horror, the Horror!

6. There are all sorts of tricks for avoiding actually implementing a lot of the stuff in that bill, as we have learned. Do not think that the White House crew hasn't already looked at that.

The President is trying to jump start the economy almost all by himself, with a few cabinet members. He is opposed by the Democrats, a fair number of GOP RINO's, "perfect conservatives", 90% of the Mainstream Media, 90% of Hollywood, a fair share of Academia, and a lot of criminals masquerading as political consultants, bureaucrats, and diplomats from foreign countries.

I am about the President's age. The amount of work he does astounds me. His love of country and vision for how he wants things to be are something I wholeheartedly support. I would last about 2 months working at his pace. As far as I am concerned, he IS heroic, and possibly evidence of Divine Intervention for this nation.

Now, I hope, Threadkiller, you realize I watched the interview and simply don't agree with you.

Oh, good, it's time for a glass of wine!

Laurence Tribe has spoken:

Federal statutory authority to quarantine is limited to “any individual reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease.” No such authority empowers executive officials to quarantine on a statewide basis. Nor does POTUS have any such power under Article II.

No word on the actions taken by the govs and mayors. Totes down with that, I guess.

This misses what Massie laid out at the beginning of your video where he mentioned Trump. Quorum doesn’t come up until after the 4min mark of your video.

I still wonder who could have explained Lordstown to Trump prior to his erroneous tweet and subsequent erroneous statement? Certainly there is someone else to blame.

Threadkiller

3. I don't think he acquits himself as well as Threadkiller thinks.

Let’s see. I believe that he made the case for the Constitution and House Rules prior to his interview with Bream. I also believe that he validated his concern to Bream in the interview.

Who needs an “acquittal” when you are consistent?

The only reason you are concerned with acquittal is because you measured him off the caricature created by Trump and King and others. I remember when that sort of stuff bothered you.

At what time stamp will I find Massie calling for a veto? I didn’t see it in your link.

...his position is to play the board so he can get elected with a Congress he can work with.
Well except that he just signed a vote-fraud-everywhere mail-in ballot law. I think that the Dems stole enough elections in 2018 to take the House. They then bootstrapped having the House into setting up the vote fraud next fall so that they can keep the House and steal the Senate and POTUS, too.

Nurse sister told me that she saw a segment on one of the networks' morning news show saying New Orleans French Quarter/ because restaurants and hotels were all closed, was having a big problem with RATS in the streets!

The rats usually keep in their hiding places and only come out at night, when they scrounge for food in hotel and restaurant garbage cans in the alleys. With those closed down, the rats have no easy food source, so they are coming out in broad daylight in the middle of streets and fighting over scraps. Ugh.

Here's the video she saw, which doesn't have that good a sound.

A Tale of Two Counties, can any one explain this?

About the same population density, but Orleans Parish has much more foot traffic on tiny old streets and Harris County is almost all car travel on wider streets.

Racial demographics are considerably different.

Orleans white/black/Hispanic: 30/60/5

Harris white/black/Hispanic: 30/20/40

I bet the percentage of obese/diabetic is FAR higher in Orleans but that's a guess.

The five minute Levin Video at 5:28 was outstanding. He makes a glaringly obviously and very simplistic point about this fiasco. Pelosi knew that no matter what the House had to have one last vote before the Bill could go to Trump. Why did she dismiss them in the first place? The Senate stayed.

I gave you a good faith answer demonstrating both that I HAD looked at Bream's interview and explaining why I didn't agree with his points. That is IT!

Now I am off to start supper.

Extraneus

Why did she dismiss them in the first place?

IMO, she was hoping to kill the bill with her last-minute demands but got steamrolled into agreeing to some fig leaves and was caught unprepared.

Dems did not want a bill to help the economy. They filibustered it twice in the Senate, but finally had to back down. People talk like they got everything they wanted but that's not true. I linked a piece yesterday that itemized the six big things they tried and failed to get. (Sorry, I don't remember where that piece was posted and couldn't find it in a search.)

Anecdotal report from old college roommate (we did a virtual happy hour last night. Hint: use Zoom, not Teams).

She is a nurse doing telemedicine with Amazon Care in Seattle (she was involved in setting up the pilot, super smart gal). Working 16 hour days.

Says most of what she's doing is telling people they're not eligible for a CV test because not symptomatic enough/wrong symptoms. And talking them off the ledge.

She had one guy call her because he had vomited ONCE. That was total of all symptoms. Wanted to be tested for CV.

Meanwhile the people who need it most likely can't get through quickly because of the call volume. And they're out of gowns so testing is even more limited.

Imagine if the media weren't stoking the panic. What a sad waste of time and energy. People are such sheep.

Your Constitutional link yesterday made it clear that as Speaker quorum and vote counts can be demanded by her. If the quorum call was a bill killer, she would have employed it.

I've been a huge Amazon user over the years, joan, but am staying away until the flunacy (thanks TK) is over.

I will say that everything I've looked at recently (guess who failed to shop for son's upcoming birthday in time?) is either overpriced or not available for at least 4 weeks even if it's listed as Prime. They're focusing on other things and getting hit hard by employees in warehouses dropping out because of CV or having to stay home with kids.

Delaying delivery might be a way of rationing service by incentivizing customers not to buy. As for pricing, maybe it's harder for sellers to get inventory because of the crisis?

I still see the delivery trucks every day in the neighborhood. I imagine the purchases are mostly essential goods.

I was actually arguing that it was reason enough to not let them leave. The bill could have been killed with a vote, if that is what she wanted. Massie is correct that everything that led up to this “vote” was to erase accountability.

Porchlight

Observation from Austin after four days of shelter-in-place:

The white liberal wealthier neighborhoods are sheltering in place and social distancing and working from home and thinking/talking/reading about CV 24/7. Lots of people outside exercising. Grocery stores are limiting number of people allowed in store and forcing distancing among those in line.

In the less white, less wealthy parts of town, it's much closer to life as normal in terms of people out and about. Grocery stores appear to be functioning the same as pre-CV. Except no one is allowed to go out and make any money thanks to the lockdown. These folks don't get to work from home.

High SES people whose jobs are safe or less at risk are driving the VAST majority of the panic in my observation. Guess who is hardest hit? Low SES people.

But the NPR apocalypse porn addicts don't care.

I don’t understand why it isn’t on her anyways. It was suggested that Trump may have wanted to clobber Massie anyways so he could get a more loyal pawn elected to that seat this year. Call me crazy, but I think clobbering Pelosi would have a better yield that pitching one slob, that votes with you 80% of the time.

It was until Massie. On Thursday, everyone was all over her for not being able to vote until Saturday. They were floating the unanimous consent idea in order to not have to call people back and delay further, but then Massie came out and took the spotlight off of her. It's unfair for him to get any blame for the delay, since he didn't cause any delay, and Trump is mostly responsible for that. I just think Massie screwed up by not communicating with the WH, and if Trump was already gunning for him it was very dumb of him to get out where he could get shot.

Jane our phones all went off, too — but it was a tornado warning.

Actually it was pretty badly done. DrF went out to spot and said no rotation, no updraft. He was musing about how in the old days a SkyWarn tornado warning (as opposed to a watch) meant that there were actual eyeballs seeing a tornado. And StormRadar only had a watch anyway.

From the Hinderaker piece I think was linked earlier:

DOES ANYONE BELIEVE CHINA’S CORONAVIRUS NUMBERS?

Even China’s premier, Li Keqiang, seems skeptical about the reporting from Wuhan and elsewhere. He warned local governments Monday not to “cover up” reporting on the coronavirus “for the sake of keeping new case numbers at zero.”

Local officials seem to have responded by keeping new case numbers between one and five.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--This would be good news, right? Not because of false positives (bad) but because it would mean that even fewer people have it.--

I don't know anymore. Some people say the whole world has been exposed and it's great that everybody and their brother already has it because therefore the death rate is lower than that of ringworm.
Other people say it's great that everybody has it because it means everyone now is immune. The guy I was buying some mix oil from yesterday was sure everybody at his work had it back in January because they all had some cold or something.
Other people say no, no we gotta bend the curve so yes, it is great that there are false positives because that means it's not being spread as easily and we're successfully flattening the frickin, stupid curve.
So it depends on what mood you happen to be in at the moment whether it's good or bad news. Since everyone has cabin fever, not to worry, your mood, like everyone elses, will soon be the opposite. :)

“The civilized world is going nuts. It is absolute stupidity to close state borders,” Lukashenko said last week. “No one is talking about the virus. In the villages, the tractor will heal everyone. The fields heal everyone.” To help combat COVID-19, Lukashenko has recommended having 40–50 grams of vodka daily, frequenting saunas and farm work.
Who knew that Belarus ever opened its borders? To the fields, sheeple! Alas, not everybody has a tractor.
