Wife and I went on a tour of three State Parks today. Two are by lakes the third is at 3400' MSL. Put roughly 200 miles on the car and included stops at QT, Racetrak, a little country store, a Home Depot, Cracker Barrel and Captain Ds before heading home. We arrived back home after 6:00pm, which means we violated the Governors new stay at home order.  We feel good  ;D

  Says me live safe more important than dollars.  Obviously you guys feel otherwise.

Tell that to the business owner as he watches his life's work be destroyed because some person on the government payroll deemed his industry "non-essential".

Life's great in the Ivory Tower where the money never stops flowing in.

Real simple math numbnuts.  The numbers I'm quoting I've seen since this thing started.  1-2% lethality, 20% of the cases severe enough for a hospital.  Anyone old, infirm, with a cardiac or pulmonary condition is going to get hit hard.  That's a lot of people.

Now we do the smart thing, huddle a bit, get the spike down.  Yeah, economy suffers, boo hoo.  No one dies for lack of a bad or ventilator because we've kept the spread of the virus low.  Says me live safe more important than dollars.  Obviously you guys feel otherwise.

I see your reading skills are still below the level of a gerbil

You are missing the point. Dollars means lives when you are talking about lower income working class. Are you going to totally ignore the postulate that economic depression kills people?

Lots of dumb here.  Can't have autos without auto deaths. We've got vaccines and treatments for the flu, can't do much more than that.  People drown in bodies of water, have since the beginning of time.  If this Coronavirus is left alone it WILL kill millions (2% of the US population is 6 million dead) and overwhelm our health system.  20% severe cases (A number I've seen multiple times) means 60 million.  No vaccine and no treatment to speak of.

All you conservatives care about is what's good for business. You don't seem to give a shit that massive numbers of people are going to die.

You complain about "dumb" but you completely missed the question and go off on a rant about conservatives.

But let's look at your pearls of wisdom...   ::)

"Can't have autos without auto deaths. " - well, duh, Sherlock.  Have you considered cars enable things and aren't just a source of death?  What would be the impact (no pun) of eliminating all cars? 

"We've got vaccines and treatments for the flu" - correct me I'm wrong, but your can't treat a virus, you treat the symptoms, but not the virus, yes?

Drowning... so, you don't care about the drowing deaths?

Your claim that COVID-19 will kill millions if "left alone" assumes (note the word "assume") 100% infection rate, as well as the 2% mortality rate.  Well, genius, questions for you:  Why does the flu infect some 10% of the population but you think COVID-19 will be infect 100%?  Where do you get a 20% serious illness rate for COVID-19?  I've seen plenty of places where it is more like 5%.  Also, without knowing who is infected with COVID-19 (and not showing symptoms),  we can't correctly calculate a mortality rate or a severity rate.  Or do you have some special knowledge of who is infected but haven't been tested? 

"No vaccine and no treatment to speak of." - um, well, duh there isn't a vaccine... yet or maybe ever.  But if there is no treatment, then why worry about overwhelming our medical system?  The symptoms of a COVID-19 infection are what's treated.

This is the first crisis not of Trump's own making.  I predicted it wouldn't end well, and I have been proven prescient.
I predict that there will be a terrible crisis within the next ten years.  It will be either an asteroid, a virus, a war, or an economic downturn.  Or maybe something else.  There will be massive panic.  It won't end well.

Remember that you heard it here first.

The CDC numbers are not wrong, but they are lagging.  Their fatalities number is as of 4pm yesterday, it went up a little by midnight.  They also don't talk about the rate.

https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections

I notice that they don't talk about recoveries.  Sure, let's not give anyone any hope.

If you have COVID-19  YOU ARE GOING TO DIE

Unless, of course, you are like more than 95+% of the patients...

(btw - data collection, but it's very nature is going lag... duh)

Exactly. I’m finding myself doubting that Trump is doing the right thing. But he is in an impossible position. Imagine what the left would do if he didn’t. He really is walking a tightrope.

I just got a notice from American that they will no longer serve you anything on flights under 4 hours, unless you maybe beg them for a sip of water.  Also they’ve “relaxed their seating policy”, whatever that means.
I see some airlines adopting the Southwest boarding model.

Didn't the Dems just finish coercing Biden INTO being the presumed nominee to get rid of Sanders?

think multi-level strategy

I think it's no coincidence he chose Easter, the Jesus rose from the dead.  It should really piss off some lefties.

Can we request the MSM be shut down for 3 months?   That would go a long way in getting everything back under control.

Yes!  Put the MSM and congress and the CDC and NIAID bureaucrats recommending this shutdown all out of THEIR jobs, cut off their paychecks, and see how long they keep this shit up.

I suspect that the communist party (they call themselves democrats which is a crock of shit) have had this legislation ready to go for months.

Now way they drafted it all in a frenzy.

They've been planning this fake crisis JUST to further the communist agenda they hold so dearly.

Look at the millions whoa re being hurt just so the fucking pigs can move the communist ball further down the court.
I thought it was pretty fast to draft that 1400 pages but it didn't register until you said that.  Legislation all written and ready to go... just waiting for the right crisis that they can escalate.  And no one will dare vote against it.   Yes, pure evil.

Trumps biggest failure as president wasn't cleaning house of all Obama's government appointments the day he was sworn in.
