"horrendous decision"

To save lives...Stumpy isn't the only winger trying to kill people...

And it's that simple, isn't it? The yellow haired traitor pushed opening up

the country, pushed bullshit about masks and set a queer example for the

nation trying to get over this pandemic..


A Johnson County commissioner urged constituents to contact Gov. Laura Kelly about her “horrendous decision.” A Republican U.S. Senate candidate said he shuddered at the thought of the state government telling people what to wear.

Kelly’s plan to require face masks in public spaces to fight a new spike in coronavirus cases in Kansas sparked an immediate backlash on Tuesday that threatened to undercut the mandate even before it goes into effect Friday. Conservative politicians dismissed the order as inappropriate and some county leaders suggested they may try to overturn it.

The fight is playing out ahead of a long Independence Day weekend that will feature gatherings centered on cookouts, fireworks and parades — all of it risking further spread of the virus.

Ace hardware...

Had been avoiding going anywhere for tools, hardware..But I really

needed some bolts..So I went into the ace hardware in augusta..with

mask in place..Got that first look by the helpers, to see who and then

looking down quick..No one, but me has a mask on...One of them took

me to where the fasteners were..messed around finding the right ones and

then as we were heading up to the cash register, which by the way the

owner had put a big piece of plexiglas up so the cashier wouldn't be breathed

on.., I asked the guy that had helped me if it worried him not wearing a

mask? They deal with a lot of people during the day.."No, he said" "Haven't

worn one from the beginning.."....Might think that the heavy resurgence of

the virus in 24 states...as in worst than before...Might, just might make a person

think about wearing a mask..

New bike coming in tomorrow...From Taiwan..

Never rode a bent before..its going to be a challenge from everything I've read
and the youtube vids...some of those are pretty hilarious..I do a lot of dirtroad
biking on the specialized hardrock..some asphalt with the spec tri-cross...This is
going to be completely different...for awhile...


Ivanka Trump snub at Wichita State could threaten WSU president's job, Koch support

Unfucking believable...Hell the students didn't want her there..the students
GET IT!!!...


Wichita State donors are threatening to cut ties and pull support from the university if the Kansas Board of Regents don’t dump president Jay Golden for canceling Ivanka Trump’s commencement speech.

The flap over cancellation of President Trump’s daughter’s speech to students at the university’s separate trade-school campus threatens a multi-million-dollar relationship with Wichita’s largest private corporation, Koch Industries, according to a former state regent with deep ties to WSU.

The Kansas Board of Regents has called a special meeting Wednesday afternoon to reportedly decide Golden’s future at the university.

Triple digit increase in new COVID-19 cases reported in Kansas City metro area Saturday..

Yeah baby, The yellow haired idiot in the white house sez its all over..

Wonder how long the people that went back to work over the last week will go back to staying at the house?

The Kansas City metropolitan had a triple digit increase in new coronavirus cases Saturday as 141 new cases of the virus and three more deaths were identified.


I don't get it..

Sorry if this is a dup topic...But!

What are the wingers so afraid of with mail in ballots?..

Big day tomorrow..


In July 2011, NASA's Space Shuttle Atlantis launched from Florida to the International Space Station, the last time humans traveled to space from US soil. The long drought should soon be over as SpaceX prepares to send two NASA astronauts to the ISS inside a purpose-built Crew Dragon capsule. This historic mission passed a critical readiness review and launch is scheduled for Wednesday, May 27. 

The mission, known as Demo-2, has had its share of setbacks. With safety checks on the capsule complete, however, NASA and SpaceX are finally ready to fly. We've rounded up everything you need to know about the launch and when and where you can tune in.

Trump officials deflect blame for US death toll, escalate reopening push

Source: cnn

(CNN)Two of President Donald Trump's top officials are now pointing the finger at the administration's own scientists and Americans' pre-existing health conditions to explain the country's world-leading Covid-19 death toll.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar suggested Sunday that underlying health conditions, including among minorities, were one reason for the high American death toll -- nearly 90,000 as of Sunday evening. And Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro added the government's own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to its list of scapegoats alongside China and the Obama administration.

The White House has been escalating its effort to recast the narrative of its own chaotic response to the crisis as it aggressively pushes to reopen the country, a process vital to the fortunes of millions of people who have lost their jobs in lockdowns and its own political prospects in November.
The effort follows Trump's repeated early denials that the virus would be a problem for the United States and claims that his administration had it under control months ago.

The United States accounts for about 4.25% of the world's population, but currently has about 29% of the confirmed deaths from the disease, and models used by the White House suggest the tragic toll could rise to around 147,000 by early August.
