US Reports Most New COVID Cases In A Month With Blue States In The Lead

At this point, the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and the various mutant strains has been accelerating for five weeks as restrictions on businesses and movement have been relaxed. Over in the US, which ceded its position as the worst outbreak in the world to Brazil back in February, when the 7-day average for Brazil’s daily tally per million population topped the US’s for the first time.

Climate Change: How much did it cost US economy in 2020?

The year 2020 saw a record number of costly hurricanes, wildfires, and storms, resulting in billions of dollars in damages.

Since records began in 1980, billion-dollar climate disasters have become much more frequent, and in total have cost the US economy $1.875tn over those four decades, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

‘Fiasco Waiting To Happen’: Millions At Risk Of Losing Power Over Unpaid Bills

Millions of people are at risk of losing electricity in the coming weeks because of unpaid power bills, even as Congress has authorized billions of dollars in supplemental relief.

Overdue power bills have mushroomed during the pandemic as job losses mounted and residential power consumption soared.

IRS delays IRA, health savings account contribution deadlines until May 17

Americans have until May 17 to contribute to their individual retirement accounts and health savings accounts — the same day that federal income taxes are due, the Internal Revenue Service said Monday.

The policy change gives individuals an extra month to make contributions to their individual retirement accounts for 2020, including IRA and Roth IRAs, health savings accounts, Archer Medical Savings Accounts and Coverdell education savings accounts. The deadline was originally April 15.

The “Unvaccinated” Question

So, the New Normals are discussing the Unvaccinated Question. What is to be done with us? No, not those who haven’t been “vaccinated” yet. Us. The “Covidiots.” The “Covid deniers.” The “science deniers.” The “reality deniers.” Those who refuse to get “vaccinated,” ever.

There is no place for us in New Normal society. The New Normals know this and so do we. To them, we are a suspicious, alien tribe of people. We do not share their ideological beliefs. We do not perform their loyalty rituals, or we do so only grudgingly, because they force us to do so. We traffic in arcane “conspiracy theories,” like “pre-March-2020 science,” “natural herd immunity,” “population-adjusted death rates,” “Sweden,” “Florida,” and other heresies.

President Biden intends to pay for the $2 trillion package of infrastructure spending he will propose on Wednesday with a substantial increase in corporate taxes, people briefed on the plan said Tuesday.

The scale of the infrastructure program — one of the most ambitious attempts in generations to shore up the nation’s aging roads, bridges, rail lines and utilities — is so big that it will require 15 years of higher taxes on corporations to pay for eight years of spending, they said.

    Market forces and peak oil demand

    https://consciousnessofsheep.co.uk/2021/03/22/upsetting-a-delicate-balance/

    ...Far from helping to resolve this predicament, government attempts to buck the market and impose the partial solution of battery and hydrogen powered vehicles is likely to prove more lethal than the climate change they claim to want to ameliorate.  This is simply because it is impossible to feed eight billion humans – at least not on any time scale that matters – without the diesel-powered industrial machinery and oil-derived fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides which – for better or worse – we all depend upon.

    In this sense, messing around with the price of petrol while ignoring the problem of diesel looks more like a psychiatric patient’s displacement activity than a genuine attempt to manage the inevitable decline of industrial civilisation.

    The truth will set you free.

    But if you don’t like the truth, you can always attack those who are telling the truth. Watch the video to the end.

    The Truth Will Set You Free?

    Very interesting video. Not because of Megaphone Guy (MG) who, frankly, is being a jerk, but because the reaction of Bike Guy (BG) is so disproportional.

    I am amazed that the relatively benign, sarcastic behavior of MG could trigger such an insane tantrum in BG. What was it about MG's behavior which incited the murderous rage and violent attack?

    Very simple. BG is a righteous, virtuous , clearly morally superior being. MG, whose message is fundamentally true, but whose presentation is asinine, threatens BG’s self-perception so the only possible morally correct course of action is to physically attack him. Unfortunately his type is on the ascendancy.

    You are 100% correct Susan

    It is this type of behavior by those that consider themselves “Morally superior” that will be our down fall. Those people confuse words that bother them with violence against them and they respond with violence. At some point bike guy is going to try the same type of crap with someone other than all talk megaphone guy and then bike guy is really going to learn what violence is. This is a very dangerous time for our country. I fear for my son’s future.

    Rather than laugh at the theatre of to all, the bicycle guy is so agitated by an alternate assessment he resorts to violence. I used to blow a kiss to guys like that bicycle guy (it make you feel better and less agitated which is how I started on it), but it will usually sends the perp stratospheric (which is satisfying on some level), to have their masculinity mocked and their narcissistic self unrequited (which is why I try not to do it anymore).
