    This is the task force that seems to have prepared the chart. All highly qualified doctors.

    This is their analysis. I'm inclined to listen to them and believe them , because they are the experts on this matter. Just like I'd listen to your advice on strength training because you are the expert on the said subject matter. Surely an expert is an expert for a reason, correct?

    Florida has relaxed restrictions for a month; hospital utilization is unchanged. We’ve seen this in Texas, as well. Santana can tell us about Arizona.

    The goal post shifting is fucking tiring.

    You mad bro?

    Apparently your reading skills are as poor as you math skills. $450 for charter etc etc. But keep harping on just the cost of the hotel. Until you prove otherwise, you cherry pick data to try to make your position seem stronger. Probably that way in all you thinking. Weak sauce.

    $140 million lost to San Antonio so far this year. $8 million from this lost convention alone. My own staff would not attend DUE TO THE MASK MANDATE. That's a few thousand that would not go to their economy, that would not DUE TO THE MASK MANDATE....you can't play both sides: SCARE EVERYONE and tell them its OK as long as you have t-shirt on your face. Well, fools can. But, it is a lie. So, which is it? Scary, scary OR just put t-shirt on you face. (see I bolded it so you can notice it, read slowly and out loud if it helps.)

    This playing both sides, like our governor, is not going to get anything going. Ever. So, I won't support those that add to the panic. Am I the only one? I don't know.

    You are fairly dense. If you need me to dumb it down for you further, gods help you.

    Right. That's exactly the correct attitude. Experts know what's best!

    Our military experts told us Iraq had WMDs, while many clearly inferior specimens in the general public had a gut feeling they were being played.

    Our experts also predicted, repeatedly, death rates far higher than we have seen and missed the mark every time.

    Surely a skeptic is a skeptic for a reason, correct?

    From our Trusted Experts, an exquisitely pathetic introductory paragraph:
    Remember the board game Risk, where the goal was basically to take over the world?
    Well, let’s play Risk COVID-19, in which you try to guess which activities put people more at risk for contracting the coronavirus
    Worthy of a contest entry.

    It is looking to me like we may have reached an unexpected economic equilibrium between deflationary and inflationary forces in the US.

    There was talk of an overheated economy just before the lock downs introduced a large deflationary pressure. Then, a large stimulus was introduced.

    There may be immeasurable pain, adjustment and pivoting on the individual level, but, at the moment, I am seeing more constructive economic forces in the US than destructive. Supply for certain goods from China was cut, but I am seeing many of them replaced either by local manufacturing or by alternative supply chains at competitive prices. There are many entrepreneurs who are now looking at this as the opportunity of a lifetime.

    Exactly. So why should I believe anything they say about the market?

    I have been waiting since March for someone I know to die. My brother is the only person I know who has gotten this thing, and he went for a 10 mile run on the worst day of his symptoms.

    A part of me half-jokingly hopes that people start dropping like flies, only so there would be some kind of justification for the hysteria. When I wake up in the morning and check the numbers, I'm constantly underwhelmed.

    The crisis is not even close to 2008 for the rest of the world, because nobody other than the US is pretending to be in short money supply now that facing up to reality would lead to immediate bank nationalization all over anywhere but China. So it's a reverse 2008. Let's see how long the US is gonna be pretending to be doing austerity after the elections.
    I also suspect that once all the elected officials have their job security back a lot of things will happen very fast. I'm excited to see how far the Fed can push Modern Monetary Theory before things begin to break. Word on the street is that more Trump Bucks are on their way.

    What makes Rip and these doctors "experts"? Credentials? Experience? Saying things that sound good to me? News station approval? The word "expert", like "racism" is essentially meaningless at this stage of the English language's evolution.
