    Not on board with this one...

    I would hope any leader would welcome their constituents fact checking their points to reinforce all the truth that’s being disseminated
  2. It’s a broken system when either party is in charge. The separation of powers fade with each passing election.

    New CDC estimate .0026 death rate

    Agreed. This was new for this country so let’s hope this is a lesson learned.
  4. As she should, it’s a stupid, disgusting, thing to say.
  5. This is ugly even for you and that’s saying something.

    I agree if people were smart enough to stay put. As we all know there are many who don’t believe anything is necessary and would not stop from driving 2 hours to a “safer zone” to get a haircut, go to a bar, etc. The little Jimmy point is taken but delivering groceries is more essential than going to the club. I maybe naive to believe Americans are smart enough to weigh activities vs possible outcomes. I’m lucky enough to be working through this pandemic but my employer has modified how we do business to provide services and reduce the risk of communicating the disease. Once again we are dealing with a complex issue in this country and too many people view it as binary.
  7. So Americans can’t be bothered to go out and vote but they are going to buck that trend to vote illegally... makes sense. The demographic that votes the most are white Christian Americans so at least we know who to watch out for.

    Hyperbole aside, the unique part is no treatment that proves to be effective for those in grave danger. The numbers suggest once on a ventilator your odds of come off alive are 1 in 5.

    Absolutely. My in-laws are both in their 80s and my father is 70. That shapes my perspective. Unfortunately there is no way to keep those that are most susceptible in a bubble as they need food, toiletries, etc.. So all of us who are not at risk of death become the carrier that infects those that are at risk. This is a very unique situation and thankfully the economics haven’t outweighed the health concerns for me to this point.

    Decent take on the panic

    US compared to Sweden, ok. How do we compare in life expectancies, mortality rates and pretty much every health related metric? Unfortunately we will never know what the country would’ve looked like had we simply just banned gatherings of 50 or more. On the broader scope of fear mongering and using it to herd the masses. The playbook has been utilizing fear to get people in line for the better part of my life.

    I’m less concerned about the death rate than total number of deaths. 100,000 in 5 months is significant for me considering all the measures taken to prevent he spread and death. Unfortunately the human condition is such that we view the world from a self-centered perspective, myself included before everyone gets all worked up. We weigh what affects us more than what affects others.
