Why the Second Wave of the 1918 Spanish Flu Was So Deadly - History - The virus infected 500 million people worldwide and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims -- that's more than all of the soldiers and civilians killed during World War I combined. While the global pandemic lasted for two years, a significant number of deaths were packed into three especially cruel months in the fall of 1918 ... From September through November of 1918, the death rate from the Spanish flu skyrocketed. In the United States alone, 195,000 Americans died from the Spanish flu in just the month of October ... Amerian Red Cross's refusal to use trained African American nurses until the worst of the pandemic had already passed ... President Woodrow Wilson contracted the Spanish flu during the World War I peace negotiations in Paris in April 1919 ... The mortality rate of the third wave was just as high as the second wave, but the end of the war in November 1918 removed the conditions that allowed the disease to spread so far and so quickly. Global deaths from the third wave, while still in the millions, paled in comparison to the apocalyptic losses during the second wave (the military was a super-spreader)

Missouri votes to expand Medicaid over objections of state' Republican leaders (who wanted them all to die)
Missouri voters approve Medicaid expansion, making it 38th state to do so - The change comes as the number of coronavirus case in the state has been on the rise.
Eschaton: Medicaid Expansion - tell this story a lot, but I think it's a useful one because it's one reason why red/swing state Democrats can be shy about supporting popular lefty measures, and by definition it isn't because they're unpopular. They're popular in those red states! - The way the press covers this stuff is that Dems can't support crazy lefty economic policies in swing states because those old white guys in diners can't handle the communism. But that isn't actually how it works ...
Medicaid wins again - Lawyers, Guns & Money - Another red state shows that Republican ideas about healthcare remain unpopular pretty much everywhere: A winning streak: Missouri becomes the sixth red state where voters have defied Republican leaders to expand Medicaid, just weeks after Oklahoma voters narrowly backed the program. No state has ever voted down such a ballot initiative in recent years, underscoring the popularity of Medicaid expansion even in parts of the country hostile to Obamacare -- The idea that it's unpossible for suburban professionals to support a progressive economic agenda has always been based on primarily aesthetic assumptions, not data. But however much you'd rather be in a political coalition with a burly welder from West Virginia rather than your real estate broker mother in suburban Michigan, the fact is that the latter is much more likely to be in favor of an expansive welfare state in 2020 than the former.

The 1918 Flu, Masks and Lessons for the Coronavirus Pandemic - The New York Times - As the influenza pandemic swept across the United States in 1918 and 1919, masks took a role in political and cultural wars ... In 1918 and 1919, as bars, saloons, restaurants, theaters and schools were closed, masks became a scapegoat, a symbol of government overreach, inspiring protests, petitions and defiant bare-face gatherings. All the while, thousands of Americans were dying in a deadly pandemic. (sounds kinda familiar, even without the "hoax" president)

And the numbers might be worse than that, since the state only considers a nursing home death to be someone who perished inside a nursing homeand does not count residents who died off-site ... over 37,000 nursing home workers who became infected and unwittingly transmitted the disease to their charges.

A Viral Epidemic Splintering Into Deadly Pieces - The New York Times - As infections mount across the country, it is dawning on Americans that the epidemic is now unstoppable, and that no corner of the nation will be left untouched ...

The pandemic wil exacerbate inequality in America - Lawyers, Guns & Money - Meanwhile, the position of congressional Republicans is that workers have too much leverage right now.
Its clearer than ever that covid-19 will increase, not decrease, inequality ... The Paycheck Protection Program, sold as a way to help mom-and-pop stores and local business, turned into another way to make sure those with the least need benefited. Black-owned firms found it hard to tap into the money, but private equity shops found no such barriers. Nor did the banks that administered the loans, to the tune of $18 billion, money coming straight out of the pockets of small businesses. The bigger, more capitalized companies will survive and become even more dominant.

The Military Demographic Conundrum - Lawyers, Guns & Money - AOC is proposing the wrong solution to the wrong problem, and it's because of a pervasive misunderstanding of the demographic foundations of the US military ... Unfortunately, AOC gets the problem entirely wrong, and the solution shs offering will actually make the situation worse. The US military does not recruit primarily from the poor, and indeed the poor are excluded in systematic ways from military service and all the perks that service entails ... The United States military does not recruit disproportionately from low income Americans. The middle three income quintiles in the US are over-represented among enlisted personnel, with the top and the bottom slightly under-represented ... It recruits disproportionately from families that already include members of the military, from rural areas around the country, and from the suburban and exurban South ... Modern military service requires physical and technological skill sets that the US health care and educational systems (not to mention the legal system) have very often prevented low-income individuals from attaining.

Not surprisingly, given their concentration in the South, white evangelical Protestants have the highest median score (0.78) on the Racism Index ... median score for each white Christian subgroup is significantly above the median scores of the general population (0.57), white religiously unaffiliated Americans (0.42) and Black Protestants (0.24) these statistical models refute the assertion that attending church makes white Christians less racist. Among white evangelicals, in fact, the opposite is true:

How did a completely open grifter get elected president of the United States? - Lawyers, Guns & Money - This, I suspect, is the single most crucial question that historians will grapple with when they try to interpret the Trump era in American politics ...

(hello, HYT/Haberputz) ... Plandemic ... Sinclair owns or operates 294 television stations across the United States. It essentially controls how huge numbers of people in an enormous percentage of the nation get their news. ... DID DR. FAUCI CREATE COVID-19? (opinions differ, but probably)
