My dad will do that every once in a couple Thanksgivings. Delicious. And terrifying...

Just to hammer home how fake your figures are... here are the CDC figures for excess deaths in another format. The 260,000 is excess deaths this year above the upper bound of variation, the 360,000 is above the long term average.
To put it in context, 2020 should be around 270,000 deaths per month based on the long term average.

That's what I heard, the count is under-counted by about 50K.

They "smoked" the meat using construction grade 2x4 lumber scraps -- pine, whitewood, etc. The place was filthy and you could literally smell the fear of the animals. But I've also inspected much better places.

I'm not at all surprised Tyson would pressure employees to work in unhealthy conditions despite the pandemic. It's a crap industry and the standards are lower now than when I was working.

It's partly because consumers expect cheap goods. They weren't willing to pay the real costs for meat that didn't come at the price of the safety and health of employees. And now with the economy so lopsided, with many low wage employees needing food supplement programs like SNAP to survive, many Americans couldn't afford to pay the real costs of poultry even if they were willing to do so.
In other words, these type of businesses are selfish and only thinking of themselves and money - disregarding customer's health, safety and satisfaction. It is disappointing!

Just because somebody died of covid in an ICU bed with a tube down their throat doesn't mean they even had the virus. Some people just like having tubes down their throat. Everybody who died was mortal so they would have died anyway. It's worth half a million dead so I don't have to wear a piece of cotton on my face. As long as it's other people dying. Those refrigerator trucks outside of hospitals aren't for people dying of the covid hoax, they're full of iced cream to cheer the nurses up. Everybody who thinks the virus is real just because the virus is real is a sheeple.

Come on, man, what else is there to say?
