Alameda County, California Will PAY Those Who Test Positive for Coronavirus $1,250

Bad Idea Hall of Fame?



A northern California county has approved a trial plan to pay anyone who tests positive for the coronavirus disease $1,250, with the idea that paying them to stay home is the only way to deter them from spreading the disease.

Alameda county supervisors are arguing that it’s the only way to prevent people from spreading the disease. “Many of them just could not afford to lose two weeks’ worth of wages to quarantine and isolate,” said policy director Vanessa Cedeño.

It’s unclear how Alameda County plans to deal with the prospect of individuals intentionally contracting coronavirus with the promise of filing for unemployment and receiving the county’s generous stipend for a positive diagnosis. The trial plan does require documentation of a positive test to receive the payment.

The plan may be geared towards illegal immigrants, as county supervisors are maintaining immigration status may not be taken into account. Recipients of the payment also can’t be receiving unemployment benefits, but it’s unclear how the county government plans to verify this.

The plan could unwitting set off a firestorm of coronavirus within the county, incentivizing hundreds or thousands of young and healthy people to intentionally procure the disease, acquire antibodies to it, and secure a Alameda County check in doing so.

There’s a strong case to be made for renewed unemployment payments, another round of TrumpBux-style payments(possibly recurring), or even more social safety measures in the duration of the coronavirus epidemic, but paying individuals on the mere basis of a coronavirus diagnosis could be a strong contender for induction into the Bad Ideas Hall of Fame.

Michael Moore: White Texans Don’t Deserve COVID-19 Vaccine

This is medical racism.



Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore called for the COVID-19 vaccine to be reserved for Texans who aren’t white in a tweet thread slamming Texas’ decision to rescind its mask mandate, at first stating that Texans didn’t deserve the coronavirus vaccine because of the state’s refusal to implement mask restrictions permanently.

After some Democrats criticized Moore’s embrace of a medical embargo on Texas, the hateful filmmaker clarified his proposal. Moore said that the poor and members of non-white groups should be vaccinated, with most White Texans seemingly banned from receiving the vaccine.

The anti-white racist only reveals his own ignorance. Texas Governor Greg Abbott cited the coronavirus vaccine expressly as a cause to roll back COVID-19 restrictions, with the vaccine more effectively enabling individuals to reintegrate into social society. Mississippi followed the Lone Star State in terminating its mask mandate on Tuesday, and several other red states are moving to finally take statewide mask mandates out of the picture in addition to reopening schools.

Moore’s proposal for racial restriction of President Trump’s COVID-19 vaccine also amounts to a medical crime against humanity, practiced by totalitarian regimes throughout history in times of disease. During the Medieval Black Plague, Jews and other minority groups were at times blamed for the disease, in roughly analogous fashion to Moore’s libelous remarks.

If Moore is so worried about the impacts of Texas’ measured COVID-19 policy on public health, maybe he should take a look in the mirror. Obesity is estimated to be among the most harmful and costly threats to public health in America, with the most overweight at severe risk of incurring a serious case of COVID-19.
