More covid 19 restrictions to be implemented (maybe...

Missouri's worthless governor is being implored by medical professionals to implement a more rigid Covid 19 safeguards...I doubt this worthless thug/governor will do so. Thus, to any of you in MO, be careful and be safe.
Dr. Garza implores Parson to act, says hospitals could run out of capacity in 2 weeks.....Updated 48 min ago
Dr. Alex Garza of the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force on Friday called on Governor Mike Parson and the state of Missouri to do more to combat the spread of COVID-19, calling for a statewide mask mandate and safer-at-home policy.

--from KMOV snip--
ST. LOUIS CITY (KMOV.com) -- All gatherings will be limited to 10 people in St. Louis City starting Saturday as the city sees a new surge in COVID-19 cases. Mayor Lyda Krewson tweeted the announcement Thursday saying, "over the last few weeks, especially after Halloween, it's no secret we continue to see a resurgence of new #COVID19 cases and hospitalizations."
Gatherings of more than 10 people will be prohibited in the city effective Saturday, Nov. 14 until further notice. As of Thursday, the city has seen a cumulative total of 9,877 coronavirus cases and 220 deaths.
According to the health order, the city's positivity rate is over 10% and the majority of new cases are coming from informal gatherings of friends, families and neighbors. The city is recommending gathering be limited to no more than two households.
This order does not affect the day-t-day operations of businesses, schools and governmental offices. These institutions must still abide by previous orders of social distancing, mask wearing and thorough sanitization.

This comes as St. Louis County Executive Same Page plans to announce new restrictions on restaurants, gatherings and business capacity. Click here to learn more.

I may have this topic in the wrong category, but I was tracking all of the underhanded ways that...

republicans were trying to steal elections, vote suppression, etc. from the topics of various DU posts over the last several days. I was amazed at all of the tactics that they were using. They are desperate. The tactics include...

Barr interfering w/ elections by removing restrictions, allowing his Justice Dept free rein;
The state of FL not allowing felons to vote unless they paid their fines in full;
Photo IDs required;
Installing or only allowing one ballot box per county;
Having only one polling place open for a major population area;
Constant lying by trump and cronies about literally all issues (seniors, fracking, etc.);
Interference by outsiders on town hall meetings Racist trolls hijacked a Zoom town hall to hurl slurs at Connecticut's first Black congresswoman;
Removing sorting machines from USPS offices, delaying the mail, other tactics;
Fake stories about Osama bin Laden being killed by Seal Team 6 etc. (distorting Obama’s achievement);
Wohl and his buddy calling voters and telling them that if they voted, bill collectors would come after them; Wohl, 22, and Burkman, 54, were hit last week with a range of charges by Michigan’s attorney general that largely stem from a robocall scheme that targeted majority-black voters in urban areas, including Detroit and cities in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois;
Cutting the amount of time to register to be able to vote;
Coming up w/ nonsense issues to deflect voter concerns about trump, e.g., wearing of masks, social distancing rules, etc.;
Hunter Biden issue (of course this is a non-issue, trying to make it an issue by stating false facts about this whole thing, Burisma);
Wolf Blitzer seemingly disparaged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California efforts on the latest COVID-19 stimulus package. Ms. Pelosi called CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer efforts "an apologist for the Republican position";
Thugs outside the polls, trying to intimidate voters from voting;
Try some legal tricks to maintain control of the executive branch, maintain that voting in some areas was illegal, etc., in other words, rely on the Courts for a win of some kind, should Mr. Biden win in Nov. 2020;

I thought that trump took hydroxychloroquine (or he claimed to), when he was pushing for this ...

drug to be made legal in treating the Coronavirus. Seems like a century ago, and some of us on DU thought that he must have had a financial interest in the drug (made in India I think).

Sure didn't do him any good, eh?

trump's federal taxes were $750, I wonder just how much he paid too in state taxes?

In Missouri, where I live and pay taxes, we have a itemized (if you itemize on your federal return) limit on the state return of I think $10,000, thus a lot of the massive tax credits / deductions are rendered mute in doing state returns.

I wonder just how many state tax returns trump has committed fraud on or fudged the numbers on? I know that he has properties in NY, New Jersey, Florida, etc.

Don't stand outside in a lightning storm!

Last night, we had a lightning storm that seemed to go on and on and on forever (the lightning). Unfortunately, some people didn't take shelter to get out of the lightning storms and thus got struck...I hope they recover...the reason I mentioned it was in fact, such an unusual storm w/ the constant and long term lightning.

SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Paramedics took four adults to the hospital after they were struck by lightning in south St. Louis City during Sunday's severe storms. Shortly after 8 p.m., firefighters were called to Marquette Park at Montana and Louisiana in Dutchtown for a report of an electrocution. Authorities said four people were transported to the hospital, three in serious condition and one critically hurt.

Aber Ordonez said he and a group of others were playing soccer at the park before the storm rolled in. He said his brother, Noe Ordonez, was sitting in a lawn chair when he was struck by lightning. Ordonez said the bolt was so powerful it hit the side of his face before knocking his shoes off. He said his 28-year-old brother is still in the hospital and is unsure what his outcome will be.

Missouri governor threatens use of pardon power if STLMO city attorney charges two...

with a gun crime of some sort...our pathetic governor in MO is threatening a pardon of two city residents who threatened protesters walking on the sidewalk by their home with their guns. This is pathetic and harms the rest of STLMO city residents by allowing the McCloskeys to threaten others by allowing them to point guns at city residents walking by on public sidewalks. The McCloskeys claim that the street was private. How did they know that perhaps the protesters were there by invitation of residents that live on that street?

Another reason that this governor (not elected) should be thrown out on his face out of office. Even thought he claimed he was a sheriff, he should know better than to have irresponsible citizens fly off the handle brandishing guns on the fly and aiming them at protesters. It's a good way for accidents to happen. As a citizen of the city of STLMO, I strongly encouraged our city circuit attorney to take strong steps to address the threatening of protesters at gunpoint (like the governor said, take violent criminals off of our streets, the McCloskeys not the protesters)...

O'FALLON, Mo. (AP/KMOV) — Missouri Gov. Mike Parson told a radio host that based on the information he's received, it's likely he would pardon a white St. Louis couple if they are charged for brandishing guns during a racial injustice protest outside their mansion.

Democratic Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is investigating Mark and Patricia McCloskey, both in their 60s, for an incident on June 28. Protesters who were marching to the nearby home of Mayor Lyda Krewson walked onto the private street where the McCloskeys live.

The couple accused demonstrators of knocking down an iron gate marked with “No Trespassing” and “Private Street” signs, though a protest leader has said the gate was already open and no protesters damaged it. The McCloskeys came outside with weapons — him with a long-barreled gun and her with a small handgun.

"As a former Sheriff, a law enforcement officer for over 22 years, and now Governor, when it comes to supporting law enforcement officers and their families who are under attack, I’ll always stand with President Trump and have their backs," he tweeted.

He continue by stating Republicans and Trump are working "hard to take violent criminals off of our streets and stop these crazy efforts to defund the police." Parson then attacked presidential candidate Joe Biden and Democrats for "allowing the radical left to make our communities less safe."

Their actions, captured on video and viewed by millions, drew praise from some who said they were legally defending their home, but scorn from others who said they risked bloodshed by displaying the weapons. Photos emerged as memes on both sides of the gun debate.

Gardner has not disclosed whether she intends to file charges, but several leading Republicans — including President Donald Trump, Sen. Josh Hawley and Parson — have criticized her for even deciding to investigate the couple. Parson cited Missouri's “castle doctrine” law that justifies lethal force for those protecting their homes. Hawley is seeking a U.S. Department of Justice investigation of Gardner.

Senator Hawley claims Circuit Attorney Gardner is targeting McCloskey family, calls for civil rights


With profound and vast disappointment, this ignorant senator of mine (in Missouri) is again ranting and raving about this supposed incident in STLMO city, about this gun touting criminals manhandling their guns and threatening peaceful protesters as they were simply walking the sidewalks (public is allowed on the sidewalks) towards their destination.

Ironically, had the two idiots (the mccloskeys) stayed either in their home or in the backyard, not a damn thing would have happened. They solely caused the incident (to drum up business for their law practice?). Many of the protesters have said that nothing happened that warranted such a threat by the mccloskeys). Note, it is very possible that some of these protesters could have been neighbors of mine simply protesting peacefully as the vast majority of protesters were. This is disgusting that these two neighbors (the mccloskeys) pulled out their guns so quickly and threatened others on the sidewalk (not in their yard, not in their house, but on a public sidewalk).

josh hawley is a disgusting political hack w/ a huge overbite problem. I'm surprised that when he talks, he can breath. kind of like rump when he mouth breaths too.
