Where is todays cartoon? In today’s paper, Lady Justice is pinned down with a knee on her neck, as a bug-eyed, snide officer in blue smirks. See it at http://tomstiglich.com/

Again, when faced with actual facts from well known and trusted sources, the TDS folks here would rather throw insults than back up their position. Sad little sheeple.[whistling]

Wow... @Conservative is desperate to defend the honor of his dearest Dear Leader...

You mocking Islam, Con? Seriously?[huh] Now you're just making stuff up. If you are inferring that by calling someone a kenyan muslim somehow is insulting to islam, you got issues. [yawn]

Ali

So, what is your point in calling Obama a Muslim, when he calls himself a Christian? I know your point in calling him a Kenyan (birtherism).

Conservative

This is for Ali, I'm not cherry picking anything. Here's the CDC's info on the china virus: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html As of May 27, 2020 just over 99,000 people reportedly died of china virus. The problem is that a lot of those people who died had other complications that could also be reported as the cause of death. "....Accuracy of Data

CDC does not know the exact number of COVID-19 illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths for a variety of reasons. COVID-19 can cause mild illness, symptoms might not appear immediately, there are delays in reporting and testing, not everyone who is infected gets tested or seeks medical care, and there may be differences in how states and territories confirm numbers in their jurisdictions.

State and local public health departments are now testing and publicly reporting their cases. In the event of a discrepancy between CDC cases and cases reported by state and local public health officials, data reported by states should be considered the most up to date....." We can debate this til we're blue in the face, but the fact remains that we are being manipulated and lied to by the powers that be because they rely on "educated mouthpieces" and people not doing a little research into the numbers that are thrown out there. That's what the establishment wants, ignorant sheep. Wake up folks. The facts are right in front of you, you just have to look at them and not rely on some biased so-called "journalist".

Ali

We are being manipulated and lied to by health officials? To what end? Sounds like a conspiracy theory to me.

Conservative

Geez are you ever obtuse. The media is twisting the facts that are put out by the medical experts. All you have to do is a little research and you'll see it's true. Stop believing "journalists" who really just have an agenda. They don't want you to look up the facts. They want you to believe what carp they tell you.

Doc Samson

@Con - Nobody wants to face facts that they don't like or that don't match their view of how things "should" be, myself included... but when you allow your emotional responses to guide your "logic", you'll never allow inconvenient facts to get in the way of your "feelz". The Left is all about "the feelz" and, as you've noted, TDS is hardwired into them. They literally cannot deviate from their programming. Nice try though!

Ali

Doc bot, funny you mention programming.

According to this article, if you have had the MMR vaccine you should be protected from the COVID-19...https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341354165_MMR_Vaccine_Appears_to_Confer_Strong_Protection_from_COVID-19_Few_Deaths_from_SARS-CoV-2_in_Highly_Vaccinated_Populations

Ali

The flu argument has long ago been shown to be not only false but a completely apples-to-oranges venture.

Conservative

Really? Where? I'd put up the CDC, Cancer.gov, and IIHS sources against any of what you got.

Doc Samson

@Conservative - Listen, if Ali, Spork, or gaijin Sensei Hagan say it's true, well, you can believe it's "truth" approved by their pro-China/DNC censors! [thumbup] #HandsyBiden2020!!!

Ali

What does the CDC say about COVID? You can’t cherry-pick what figures you want and leave out the rest. And Doc, no doubt your cult idol would be proud that you are as ignorant of facts and as hateful in comment as he is. Stay in your little Fox approved echo chamber as long as you like, but when you go public, at least you’ll be wearing a mask.

Conservative

They hate it when they're proven wrong, so they resort to name calling and Trump hating.

Doc Samson

1) One snowflakes "hateful comment" is another adult's humor. Wonder how many of those deaths are due to Cuomo mandating that nursing homes take Wu-Flu positive patients? What's that? No outrage there? Color me surprised... not. 2) As for cherry-picking data? Sure he can, and should! Climate change promoters do it on the regular. It's been approved by your side for a long time. 3) I don't watch Fox and I regularly talk with Leftists, some of whom are actually rational.

Ali

"proven wrong".......yes, you have been. Over and over and over. I know that reality bites for you, but, hey, it is what it is.

Ali

Alex Jones is probably more your style Doc. Anybody you consider rational probably isn’t, given your way out of line comments.

Despite this cartoon being, sadly, quite an accurate representation of the current “leadership” of this country, there really isn’t anything at all funny about 100,000 people dying in the U.S. . For the C.T. folks out there - what difference does it really make if the numbers are off a bit? Dead is dead & any number is too many. The number could actually even be higher - do you even consider that?

Conservative

The kenyan muslim played more golf.

Spock Here

The Kenyan muslim might have, we don't know. But Obama didn't and even most cultists know that. While one might suppose Obama did play more golf because of his obvious physical superiority to fat boy whopper hound with man brests, Trump has played more and cost taxpayers more in playing. Now, I have never been one to carp at any potus vacationing or playing golf, but at least don't deny it

Conservative

"...his obvious physical superiority to fat boy whopper hound with man brests, ...." Wow, you really do go low whilst standing on your pedestal of mental, physical, and racial superiority. Never practice what you preach, but it's expected of you leftists and establishment types.

Spock Here

Some remarks don't deserve the "go high" attitude and most of yours fall into that barrel. Besides, the man should be wearing a bra for heaven sake, along with that back brace that sort of makes him stand upright. He almost did a face plant into the wreath at Arlington the other day. Is that what will take for you people to take notice?

Ali

You mocking Islam, Con?

Conservative

Time to take off your masks, folks. We're being duped.

Ali

Actually, it is mandated that you wear one in public spaces now.

Doc Samson

@Conservative - Oh, ho! I see you are trying to confuse the issue with data and logic! No worries! Totally unbiased minds like Ali's are experts at refuting your truths and inserting their own! She'll see your CDC and LIHS data and raise you some CNN/MSLSD/NYT facts of her own, no doubt! Also, you are a bot... [lol]

Ali

Doc, you wouldn’t know a fact if it fell out of a tree and bit you on the.. Ali is a male name as well Dope, sorry, I mean “Doc” (how ironic is THAT nickname!).
