  • God, we were so close. If only we didn't have a president who thinks the right way to run a country is like running a TV show and treating the opposition as rival networks fighting for ratings/popular opinion, plus a congress ran by Mitch McConnell who was never taught how to share as a child, then maybe, just maybe, we could have not only listened to the science, as we initially mostly-sorta did, at least in the beginning, i.e. the CARES Act and the stay-at-home mandates. But then, while we quite literally were, "flattening the curve", and were prepared to actually, potentially handle this thing with at least some degree of sense and care, came the chants of "We can't let the cure be worse the disease", and the almighty precious economy could potentially be threatened, and we had suffered enough. So we had to get "back to normal" and we had to do it asap, we were sure the virus would understand. So, while the, "science" said, No, the worst possible thing you could do right now is a half-measure. We could potentially get this thing under control if we just hold out for a little longer. It is, inherently a sacrifice, but business and the economy don't need to suffer. They can be helped through this, just like everyone else, by the government. That is what it is there for. The government actually did the same thing and bailed out the big banks a few years ago, largely against the wishes of the general people. This time the general population are the ones who need help, bailing out. For the people who truly need it, the ones most effected by this pandemic - stimulus checks, unemployment assistance, rent forgiveness, housing assistance, eviction protection, childcare assistance, and GD for the love of god most of all, HEALTHCARE. And we almost did pass another bill, one that would do, some. Definitely not all nor nearly enough, but some of those things. And as the clock was about to strike midnight, as the CARES act was set to expire, as the democrats and republicans had both presented their respective "ideas", or bills, and argued over them, and as the resident democrat in charge of their side of these negotiations decided to compromise and meet in the middle, just at least so that something got passed before they were set to leave for a few weeks, with millions of Americans livelihoods hanging in the balance, what does Mitch McConnell do? He says no. He says, referring to the aforementioned "benefits" that were up for determination in their bills, for the most desperate people, those most likely to be effected and most unable to handle the effects of this pandemic, Mr. McConnell, Senate Majority Leader of the United States of America, he says, "Enough's enough." This man supposedly speaks for us, Americans. He is elected to represent the interests of Americans, but what he did can in no way be interpreted as such. It essentially came down to the Dems wanting a $3 trillion deal and the Reps wanting a $1 trillion deal and at the last hour the Dems saying ok, we'll meet in the middle with a proposed compromise deal for $2 trillion, and the Reps still saying no. And because of that, millions and millions of Americans who either lost jobs because of the pandemic, or are looking for work and can't find it because of the pandemic, can't pay their rent, can't afford food for their children, etc., would stop getting all of that assistance, including the additional $600 in unemployment from the federal government on July 31st. And lets be clear, starting around August 1st, and going on through to today right before Christmas, this is the time when people are hurting the most. This is when they need that assistance more than ever. And if you are truly worried about "the economy", the economic impact of this pandemic, and lets be clear it was going to be huge no matter what, how could there be a better way to help the said "economy" than making sure the people who have lost their jobs and have no income and can't find work because the pandemic is worse than ever, have extra money in their bank accounts from unemployment assistance and continuous stimulus checks. If people can, they will spend money at their local stores, they will get carryout from their favorite restaurants, they will order things from places like Target and Best Buy. Since that's all men like Mitch McConnell care about, worshipping at the golden altar of the almighty dollar, it helps to break it down in terms they understand. People can't spend money on shit when they get laid off because their company shut down due to the public health crisis and then the Paycheck Protection that they were getting cut off along with their additional unemployment payments.

  • Hate to agree with Rush Limbah on any points but he is right on coronaviruses being not uncommon. Technically the coronavirus family is one of three primary virus types - of the 200 odd viruses - that make up the common cold. What makes it much more dangerous is the fact that it wasn't a human coronavirus, which means that our immune response is much weaker compared to "normal" human coronaviruses. The fact that it is alien to us makes it more dangerous. The comparison to common flus are actually quite valid if you consider how it killed of masses of indigenous populations when the European colonists arrived in the Americas.

  • Let me tell you as an "essential" worker , John covering this subject makes me feel more sane because the amount of people not taking this seriously only proves how selfish people can be. I am a 26 year old male working at a liquor store in the Dallas area and the way people have been acting about it had made me utterly infuriated. I wipe down my counters and cooler doors and the main entrance and despite that I've had people (customers) make fun of me for it. The worst part is I found out recently that one of my favorite customers passed away due to COVID-19 because her husband came into my store and told me what had happened. Retail in general is a nightmare and yes I want things to go back to normal too but cmon people. WAKE UP.

  • Update from April: All of the pundits believe that the White House (and many others) under estimated the size of the coronavirus “pandemic.” White House staffers and a reporter discussed the situation near an open mic. A new report suggested that the most recent coronavirus statistics revealed only 1/10 of the number of deaths projected by official sources and mainstream media. Circumstantial evidence points to a loosey-goosey approach to assessing the effect of the virus. Hypothetically, a 75-year-old man enters the hospital with cancer, AIDS, malaria, and a bite from a rabid dog. Should he be tested for the coronavirus antibody, his cause of death could be “presumed” or “probable coronavirus.” This is medical heresy. Experts suggested that everyone will need a miracle vaccine. Dr. Fauci suggested that the entire world should be vaccinated. The good doctor has an interest in a manufacturer of vaccines, and there’s a significant possibility that he would profit should the manufacturer administer 7.5 billion vaccinations. Covid 19 takes the low hanging fruit - the elderly, people with pre-existing conditions, and the uninsured. (Untermensch)

Like if people DID wear masks during flu season, a lot less people would die Oh, and now that the death figure for the USS is over 200,000, can someone tell all those right wing ghouls to stfu about reciting death statistics for other things?
