Mexico Is Cremating Bodies On An “Industrial Scale” Tyler Durden Thu, 05/14/2020 – 21:05 Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) unveiled a plan this week to reopen the country’s severely damaged economy by June 1 as part of normalization after the COVID-19 pandemic triggered lockdowns.

Free COVID Testing For Ultra Rich At This Miami Condo High Rise 

Free COVID Testing For Ultra Rich At This Miami Condo High Rise  Tyler Durden Thu, 05/14/2020 – 18:25 It must be wonderful being ultra-rich in South Florida, living in a multi-million dollar flat overlooking the clear blue water. What’s even better about being an elite in a pandemic is that you can receive free virus testing while some parts of the country suffer shortages.  A luxury condo building in South Beach, Florida, somehow obtained a bulk shipment of COVID-19 antibody tests that it plans to offer for free to its residents and employees.  Remember, a little over a week ago, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan had a planeload of antibody tests flown in[…]

Three Reminders From The Bill Of Rights Tyler Durden Thu, 05/14/2020 – 15:45 Authored by Jacob Hornberger via The Future of Freedom Foundation, As a condition for accepting the Constitution, the American people demanded the enactment of the Bill of Rights immediately after ratification of the Constitution.
