    His last post, just so you can see how deeply stupid the people behind this disaster are. He has absolutely no idea about what's going on that he hasn't "learned" from CNN/NBC/CBS/ABC/NYT/WP. I really have no words for this, except that since no one is this dense he's got to be a troll, and dealt with accordingly.

    How silly. The virus is going to infect 60%-70% of the population before it slows down. You really think it cares what party the leaders belong to? Give it time, and you'll wish you hadn't typed such foolishness.

    Some people are richer than others. Are you denying that some are in severe financial hardship?

    BUT HOW MANY IS IT GOING TO KILL, YOU GODDAMN IDIOT? That's the only thing that matters. People get sick. Sometimes they get really sick. Usually they don't They haven't this time, just like normal. The death rate is insignificant -- the social consequences of your fear are catastrophic. You being a fucking pussy has devastated the economy of the world. Go the fuck away and hide.

    Answer the question. How is it possible that the first thing these "devastated" people do with their meager funds is to spend it on luxuries like pool parties at bars, restaurants, and resorts? Who's been telling the truth and who hasn't?

    Well, at least for those throwing their money around at bar pool parties, the semi-shutdowns cannot have been as devastating as they've been whining about for weeks, can it?

    A little science lesson: The "death rate" is dependent on several variables: available medical care, quality of care, and personal factors. So far, COVID has been about ten times as lethal as influenza, if you control as much as possible for those variables. If Dr. Osterholm at Minnesota is correct, which he is, if essentially no efforts at mitigation were done, about 3 million Americans would die from COVID by the time even minimal herd immunity were achieved. About 27 million Soviets died in WWII, so I guess all disasters are relative, aren't they?

    Farmers are throwing out tons of dairy, meat, and produce because they can't get a price, and the gov't still gives them subsidies to cover their losses in the failed trade war. There is more than enough food for everyone to eat well until there is a plan for safe re-opening. Same for every possible need Americans have. Just look at the wasteful pool parties, restaurant feasts, and resort gatherings, all of which will spread the virus more quickly, and you can see that those hacking about the partial shutdowns are the most selfish, weak bunch of whiners in U.S. history.

    And wearing a mask is simply a way of showing respect for others. Even the Republican governor of North Dakota said to stop the "senseless culture war." Obviously, you can spread the virus even if you don't have symptoms, and the person you spread it to may have a child at home who's a cancer patient, or an elderly grandparent. Not wearing a mask is a self-indulgent act, meant to show some twisted idea that you'll not be told what do. As if driving according to the rules were somehow a virtue, or smoking in a hospital, or one of a thousand things a citizen who shares the country with others has to do because even if you don't care about others, you have no right to hurt them unnecessarily.

    The information from the Journal of the American Medical Association, not any media source, concludes as follows: "Although officials may say that SARS-CoV-2 is “just another flu,” this is not true." Here is the link: Assessment of Deaths From COVID-19 and From Seasonal Influenza | Geriatrics | JAMA Internal Medicine | JAMA Network. In simple terms, influenza deaths are reported as estimates, generally 6 times higher than actual deaths, and COVID-19 deaths are actual deaths. The simplest controlled environment for calculation was the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. Adjusting for all of the statistical issues the ship had "a case fatality rate of 0.5% ... still 5 times the commonly cited case fatality rate of adult seasonal influenza." Now that I've answered your question about death rates multiple times, do you still encourage running into machine gun fire with no plan and no equipment? Sure, the bullets don't kill every soldier, some are just wounded, some not so badly, some aren't hit at all. But what kind of leader orders a suicide mission when it's not close to necessary?

    Hilarious stuff. Property tax dollars at work. "Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair." The government we deserve.

    By definition, the jobless claims. Not a fiction I think.

    Currency to throw about. As Elon Musk said for the terminally stupid, if no one makes the stuff, there is no stuff. A Government paying people not to produce anything is a recipe for hyper inflation. Theres lots of stuff left in the fridge, right up to the point no one is making stuff to go in the fridge, then prepare to eye up your neighbours cat.
