    The average number of years lost to each person in the UK who died after adjusting for pre-existing conditions was about 10 years

    • Kye says:

      How would one adjust for pre-existing conditions? Sounds completely arbitrary or just plain guesswork. Typical of leftists. Base everything on phony numbers and fake models. Their entire existence is guessing shit and suppositions and always-wrong models.

    from the Texas ACLU:

    Am I required to follow stay-home orders related to COVID-19?

    Yes. The Texas Disaster Act of 1975 gives the State of Texas and local governments authority to respond to emergencies, including pandemics. Once the governor and local governments declare a state of emergency, they may create emergency management plans that control the movement of people when it is “necessary for the preservation of life or other disaster mitigation.” Most emergency plans that have been implemented are grounded in guidance from public health experts and designed to save lives.

    Are stay-home orders constitutional?

    Likely, yes. There is no question that national, state, and local governments can — and should — respond to emergencies and natural disasters. When government actions during a state of emergency interfere with your constitutional rights, its actions may still be constitutional.

    However, the government’s power is not unlimited; you still have constitutional rights under these types of orders. The U.S. Supreme Court tells us as much, stating that the Constitution still applies even in times of crisis. As governments respond to this public health crisis, the measures they take to protect public health can still be examined in court.

    What if I am stopped by the police while I am outside of my home?

    Stay calm and remember that you have rights. You have a right to remain silent and you also have a right to film the police. Remember, police can use violence if they feel threatened. Stay safe by: being polite and respectful; never arguing with or bad mouthing the officer; staying calm and in control of your words, body and emotions. Do not run or resist.

    If you’re stopped in your car:
    Stop the car in a safe place as quickly as possible. Turn off the car, turn on the internal light, open the window partway, and place your hands on the wheel.
    If asked, show police your driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance.
    If an officer asks to search your car, you can refuse.
    Both drivers and passengers have the right to remain silent.

    Can I be fined, arrested, or jailed for violating these orders?

    Possibly. The Texas Disaster Act allows for enforcement of emergency plans with up to a $1,000 fine or 6 months of jail time. However, the ACLU of Texas urges all police officers, sheriffs, and other government officials to first educate the public and warn people about this public health crisis — and only use fines or jail time as an absolute last resort, since these measures exacerbate the economic fallout from COVID-19 and accelerate the spread of the virus in local jails.

    • formwiz says:

      Unfortunately for you, the ACLU has slipped into irrelevance.

      The people of Texas, as always, are standing up for their rights.

      If they were a bunch of Commies from Baaston, I have no doubt they would fight such a thing through the courts.

      FROM THE ACLU to their BLACKS BROTHERS AND SISTERS:

      Stay calm and remember that you have rights. You have a right to remain silent and you also have a right to film the police. Remember, police can use violence if they feel threatened. Stay safe by: being polite and respectful; never arguing with or bad mouthing the officer; staying calm and in control of your words, body and emotions. Do not run or resist.

      How many more black lives might still be alive today if they listened to this sage advice. How many more WHITE LIVES and ASIAN LIVES and HISPANIC LIVES might still be alive if they chose to obey the police when they are pulled over or approached.

      SAGE ADVICE 50 center, too bad you werent advocating for it when Hash tag black lives matter a few years back.

      Which ever the wind blows 50 center. Never let a good crisis go to waste huh?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Komrade Klem,

        As a supporter of the ACLU, I not only practice that behavior, I also advocate that behavior.

        Do you have any idea how stressful it is to police officer to walk up to a car they’ve pulled over at night? Turn on your interior light, roll down the window and put your hands where they can see them. But as a white man in a sedan I’ve never had a bad experience with the police.

        Do you not think that Black people have more to fear from the police?

    Today tRump tweeted that reporters who reported on tRump’s Russia connection should return their Noble (sic) Prizes.

    Reporters don’t win Noble (sic) or even Nobel Prized for reporting.

    • formwiz says:

      You really think anybody cares?

      People get what he said.

    • Nighthawk says:

      If you are going to knock someone for their spelling, you may want to make sure every word in your post is spelled correctly.

    • Kye says:

      We all know what he meant, even you so what’s the beef? He mentioned the wrong prize. Oh, impeach him! You are really a petty idiot.

      In all honesty they should be forced to write apologies posted to their front pages for a year and then the “reporters” be terminated. They should also be fined a billion dollars for falsifying the news.

      Trump 2020 The fake news lies don’t matter.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        It just proves how stupid he is. He’s the president of the US.

        And your other comment proves what an authoritarian fascist you are. The fascist right would love to control or ‘terminate’ the media. It’s part of your plan. Let the trumpists control all information.

        • Kye says:

          You think WE want to control “all information”? You mean like the ONE VOICE put out by GOOGLEFACEBOOKYOUTUBECNNMSNBCCBSABCNYTWaPo? The stranglehold the communist left has on both information and education is right out of 1984 you petulant pimp.

          This alone will show what a disingenuous lying rat you are, Elwood:

          Posted at Moonbattery Via the Atlantic:

          “COVID-19 has emboldened American tech platforms to emerge from their defensive crouch. Before the pandemic, they were targets of public outrage over life under their dominion. Today, the platforms are proudly collaborating with one another, and following government guidance, to censor harmful information related to the coronavirus. And they are using their prodigious data-collection capacities, in coordination with federal and state governments, to improve contact tracing, quarantine enforcement, and other health measures.

          “Health measures” is the new euphemism for tyranny.

          We have already been moving toward the authoritarian Chinese model, not only to “flatten the curve” but to flatten free speech on the Internet:

          Constitutional and cultural differences mean that the private sector, rather than the federal and state governments, currently takes the lead in these practices… But the trend toward greater surveillance and speech control here, and toward the growing involvement of government, is undeniable and likely inexorable.

          In the great debate of the past two decades about freedom versus control of the network, China was largely right and the United States was largely wrong. Significant monitoring and speech control are inevitable components of a mature and flourishing internet, and governments must play a large role in these practices to ensure that the internet is compatible with a society’s norms and values.

          Until recently, even progressives usually pretended to be in favor of freedom. They have made so much progress toward their goals that they are dropping this pretense.

          Silicon Valley has already been squeezing Lady Liberty’s throat:

          [M]ost of our online speech now occurs in closely monitored playpens where many tens of thousands of human censors review flagged content to ensure compliance with ever-lengthier and more detailed “community standards” (or some equivalent). More and more, this human monitoring and censorship is supported—or replaced—by sophisticated computer algorithms. The firms use these tools to define acceptable forms of speech and other content on their platforms, which in turn sets the effective boundaries for a great deal of speech in the U.S. public forum.

          Coronavirus hysteria has thrown this encroachment on freedom into overdrive. For example,

          Facebook relies on fact-checking organizations and “authorities” (from the World Health Organization to the governments of U.S. states) to ascertain which content to downgrade or remove.

          The World Health Organization serves as a propaganda organ of the Chinese Communist Party (see here, here, and here). Neither are the authorities running some states (e.g., Michigan, Pennsylvania) the sort of people we want deciding what speech should be allowed.

          People may think that when Kung Flu panic has subsided, we will get our free speech back.

          But when the crisis is gone, there is no unregulated “normal” to return to. We live—and for several years, we have been living—in a world of serious and growing harms resulting from digital speech. Governments will not stop worrying about these harms. And private platforms will continue to expand their definition of offensive content, and will use algorithms to regulate it ever more closely. The general trend toward more speech control will not abate.

          This is presented as a good thing, because Big Government and Silicon Valley have a shared duty to crush “weaponized speech.”

          On a tip from Bluto.”

          That’s why no reasonable thinking man believes a word out of your mouth Elwood (or your Fake News mouths either). We don’t expect partisans like you to be fair but we do expect you to be honest. You are neither! If you can’t tell the truth about things we can all see and that are obvious to any reasonable man how can we expect you to be honest about those things which are not so obvious and in need of explanation an investigation?

          I see that the Democrats are thinking about that retard Stacy Abrams for VP. That’s hilarious. A senile old white rapist and a retarded racist black moron. That about sums up everything the Democrat party has to offer America. Oh, that and hate.

          Trump 2020 We don’t need no Biden/Abrams ticket (although the laughs may be worth it)

        • formwiz says:

          I catch you in lies all the time. So that means you’re the last one to call him stupid.

          And your other comment proves what an authoritarian fascist you are. The fascist right would love to control or ‘terminate’ the media. It’s part of your plan. Let the trumpists control all information.

          Funny, but you just described what the Left has been doing for the last 65 years. Funny you never complained about it.

          • Kye says:

            And just in case you missed my point above about how YOU and YOUR TEAM are the Nazi fascists trying to gag Free Speech (along with about ten other Freedoms) riddle me this Bat Soup Boy:

            “The New York Times edited its initial story about a recent sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden, removing qualifying language used to determine there was “no pattern of sexual misconduct” on the former vice president’s part.”

            LIARS!!! What are they covering up?

            “CNN Removes Damning Evidence That Biden Assaulted Tara Reade – CNN Is Hiding Evidence Of Sexual Assault…”

            Google has removed the same video interview with Larry King!

            The left lies, covers up and has been doing it since Walter Duranty lied about Stalin’s Russia.

            Elwood, you’re all fukin’ liars all the time. We Don’t believe a word you say.

            Trump 2020 At least his lies are Pro American!
