GT’s account says he register back in 2008, and he only has 2900 ish posts. Hardly ever see him post in the sports board.

Yet suddenly (feels like the last month or so?) he’s been a prolific OTB poster.

Wonder if the account get hacked or maybe it was a sleeper account someone forgot about back in the day and the login was passed to someone here??

Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s someone like Killer or CRG behind the wheel, or one of their buddies in real life that they asked to come on here and troll.
Definitely a sock.

The firing of a Florida state health official who says she refused orders to change data on coronavirus cases has raised questions about some of the statistics that governors have used to justify ending lockdown orders.

Rebekah Jones, who designed and managed the state’s COVID-19 dashboard, told CBS News 12 in West Palm Beach that her departure earlier this month was “not voluntary” and that she was removed from her position because she was ordered to censor some data. She said she refused to “manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen.”

In an email to her colleagues alerting them to her departure two weeks ago, Jones wrote, “As a word of caution, I would not expect the new team to continue the same level of accessibility and transparency that I made central to the process during the first two months. After all, my commitment to both is largely (arguably entirely) the reason I am no longer managing it.”

Jones served as the geographic information system manager for the Florida Department of Health’s Division of Disease Control and Health Protection. The dashboard had been previously praised by White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Deborah Birx. The state’s governor, Ron DeSantis, is a Republican and close ally of President Trump who initially hesitated to fully shut down the state and has pushed for reopening.

“The Florida COVID-19 Dashboard was created by the Geographic Information System (GIS) team in the Division of Disease Control and Health Protection at the Florida Department of Health,” DeSantis spokesperson Helen Aguirre Ferré told the Miami Herald in a statement. “Although Rebekah Jones is no longer involved, the GIS team continues to manage and update the Dashboard providing accurate and important information that is publicly accessible.”

In an email to the news site Florida Today on Tuesday, Jones said, “I worked on it alone, sixteen hours a day for two months, most of which I was never paid for, and now that this has happened I’ll probably never get paid for,” confirming that she had not just been reassigned on May 5, but fired.

Last week the state of Georgia fixed a graph showing COVID-19 cases after intense online mockery and criticism. The original graph was not arranged chronologically along the X axis, but instead to order the data in a way that made it look like it was declining.


Go figure. I wasn't going to speculate that they were fudging the numbers without any proof. But it's not surprising that they were. That's the dirt water right for you. Open it all back up! See! States that are open do better! Makes sense.....right?!?

Georgia was pulling similar shenanigans.

Stocker broke the case wide open. We need to shut it all down immediately. If you disagree YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DIE.

Governors across the country need to be alerted. SHUT IT DOWN UNTIL THERE IS A CURE.

There is no other choice. 😳

Did you even read the story you posted? You claim proof of fudging numbers. Can you point out in the story where it says exactly what data in FL was censored?

So while Walz and Ellison are suing a rural restaurant owner for wanting to open up, nursing homes in MN continue to take in infected COVID patients. What Walz is doing to this state is indefensible at this point.

Minnesota nursing homes, already the site of 81% of COVID-19 deaths, continue taking in infected patients

Despite the devastating death toll, Minnesota nursing homes continue to admit patients infected with the novel coronavirus from hospitals with little state oversight.

Early in the pandemic, the Minnesota Department of Health turned to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to relieve the burden on hospitals that were at risk of being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients. Minnesota hospitals have since discharged dozens of infected patients to nursing homes, including facilities that have developed large and deadly outbreaks of the disease, state records show.

Currently,
even poorly-rated nursing homes with large and deadly clusters of coronavirus cases have been allowed to admit COVID-19 patients from hospitals. One such facility, North Ridge Health and Rehab in New Hope, has accepted 42 patients from hospitals and other long-term care facilities since mid-April even as the coronavirus has raged through its 320-bed nursing home, killing 48 of its patients and infecting scores more.

Government health records show that North Ridge has struggled in recent years to adhere to basic standards of patient care. The facility has been fined $117,000 by federal regulators and cited for dozens of health and safety violations over the last three years. The nursing home earned just two stars ("below average") on the federal government's five-star rating system for overall care. The facility was also listed among the most-troubled nursing homes in the nation.

We don't know exactly what numbers were messed with now. What we do know is that DeSantos wants the numbers to look as favorable as possible....and that this person was fired over it.

LOL! Keep pissing up a tree, pal.

Absolutely maddening. Very clear to me at this point that had government done absolutely NOTHING, EXCEPT spend their time and resources protecting the elderly and vulnerable populations (which some of us advocated from the beginning) we'd have far fewer deaths, and would not be faced with this economic calamity. And we'd probably be done with it by now and could get on with our lives.

If you want to know why I'm a libertarian, this whole crisis is the perfect example. Get out of the way.

Actually we don’t know any of that.

You aren’t very good at this. As someone else posted getting schooled on this board must be your hobby.

This has nothing to do with opening the state back up or not.

It is something Walz separately should address, regardless.

It's ALL Walz should be focusing on. Suing a bar in Albany? That's their priority? It's always about total control with Democrats.

Dont worry, Stocker is used to getting schooled on this board. In fact, it might be a hobby for him
When righties get too close....they end up looking stupid. Confirmation bias and hypocrisy will do that to yah. That's why you guys throw darts from a distance.

We know that your agenda causes you to deny the insanely obvious. Go King Trump.
You posted a story that is just that a story. You claim it as fact when they story doesn’t even indicate what data was censored. When presented with that flaw in your argument you resorted to your go to. Deflect and start babbling about TRUMP.

With regards to nursing homes, what exactly is it he's supposed to have done that he didn't do? Thanks!

That she was being asked to fudge the numbers. What do you think that sounds like?

Doesn't take a genius to figure out what they were trying to do. Of course....you are a Trump bootlicker.....so no wonder you are trying to act like this is some kind of mystery.
