Why is it…

California is one of the hardest hit Covid areas, but many counties allow their gyms to be open. The beaches are open – whether they’re suppose to be or not – and people are not social distancing or wearing a mask in the numbers needed to slow the curve.

So what’s the deal? I have some ideas, but I’d be called a conspiracy theorist.

What Happens When Major Cities Go Broke WORLDWIDE – Robert Kiyosaki Quarantine Updates 

Robert Kiyosaki from Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Although some of his books are 20 years old or better, it amazes me how accurate they are all these years later. There is a difference, I’ve come to understand, in the way rich people teach their kids about finance versus those who are not well-off.

In a nutshell, when Robert Kiyosaki speaks people listen.

And I think they become wiser for it.

Supreme Court: John Roberts sides with liberals to block controversial Louisiana abortion law – CNNPolitics

It does matter to a certain extent the party of the president who nominated a Justice.  But, always keep in mind that they have a mind of their own.  Over time, Justices seem to mellow with age and that can also be said for their ideology.

US employers cannot fire people for being gay or transgender, Supreme Court rules 

Despite the gnashing of liberal teeth when Neil Gorsuch was confirmed the SCOTUS voted a resounding 6-3 with the conservative Justice leading the way with his majority opinion.

Justice Neil Gorsuch, one of the two justices on the top court in the land appointed by Donald Trump, authored the majority opinion saying Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects gay and lesbian workers from discrimination.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined Mr Gorsuch and the court’s four liberal justices to deal a blow to conservatives who believe forcing employers to keep gay and lesbian workers on their payrolls infringes on religious liberties.

Coronavirus May Be a Vascular Disease, Which Explains Everything | Elemental

In April, blood clots emerged as one of the many mysterious symptoms attributed to Covid-19, a disease that had initially been thought to largely affect the lungs in the form of pneumonia. Quickly after came reports of young people dying due to coronavirus-related strokes. Next it was Covid toes — painful red or purple digits.

What do all of these symptoms have in common? An impairment in blood circulation. Add in the fact that 40% of deaths from Covid-19 are related to cardiovascular complications, and the disease starts to look like a vascular infection instead of a purely respiratory one.

Months into the pandemic, there is now a growing body of evidence to support the theory that the novel coronavirus can infect blood vessels, which could explain not only the high prevalence of blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks, but also provide an answer for the diverse set of head-to-toe symptoms that have emerged.

South Korean football club sorry for ‘X-rated’ sex doll controversy

From the ‘you can’t make this shit up’ section of the internet.

Seoul (AFP) – One of South Korea’s top football clubs apologised for causing “deep concern” Monday after being accused of using sex dolls to fill empty seats at a weekend game.

FC Seoul insisted the mannequins — used in the absence of fans, who are banned because of the coronavirus — had “no connection to sex toys”.

But some of the artificial spectators, deployed for Sunday’s game against Gwangju FC, wore T-shirts with the logo of SoloS, a sex toy seller.

Other mannequins, which wore facemasks and were separated according to social distancing guidelines, held placards advertising the company and some of its models.

Most of them were female, but some were male.

FC Seoul said the company which provided the mannequins had previously provided them to SoloS, hence the advertising in which they were clad.

“We are sincerely sorry for causing deep concern to fans,” FC Seoul said in a statement, following uproar from fans and media.

“We have confirmed from the very beginning that they had no connection to sex toys,” the club said.

But fans were not convinced.

“I wonder how they even came up with this bizarre idea. This is an international disgrace,” said one online critic.

Another fan added: “FC Seoul turned its stadium into a X-rated zone.”

Neither the mannequin distributor nor SoloS could immediately be reached for comment by AFP.

The K-league’s new season kicked off on May 8 after being postponed for more than two months over the coronavirus pandemic, but fans remain barred.

Instead, clubs have used cardboard cutouts, placards and banners to fill up the stands.

FC Seoul won the game, held at the cavernous Seoul World Cup Stadium, 1-0.

Congress Job Approval Highest Since 2009.  Trump’s Best Approval of his Presidency.

Political R and D

Gallop poll public opinion polling

Well, you don’t see this everyday.  Across the board with both major political parties, Congress has an approval rating upwards of 30%.  It usually sits around 17%.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump sits with a 49% approval ratings which is the highest in his presidency.

Factoid: After 9/11, Congress had an 84% rating.

Public opinion of our American political representation often goes up in times of national crisis. And one poll, in another itself, doesn’t necessarily indicate a public opinion shift at a national level.

Perhaps one take away would be that the Democratic Party hasn’t necessarily coalesced around Joe Biden – at least not the way mainstream media would have you believe.
