I agree with this. People need to be patient and strap in 'cause we're in this thing for the long haul.

And speaking of comedians:

As always, Tamby manages to be contradicted by fact immediately:

A [Only registered users can see links.] of more than 2,400 cases of COVID-19 that have occurred in the United States in the last month shows that at least one in seven and perhaps as many as one in five people between the ages of 20 and 44 who contract the virus require hospitalization, a level exponentially higher than hospitalization rates for something like influenza.

Between 2 percent and 4 percent of people that young are admitted to intensive care units. The fatality rate is low, only 0.1 percent to 0.2 percent, but is about twice as deadly as a bad flu season.

I really didnít want to go there but: fuck these people. Nurses make $100k/year with full benefits. I donít feel sorry for them at all that they might catch a flu thatís not going to do anything to them. Such a stupid opportunity that theyíre fully exploiting to jerk themselves off.

You think those numbers might be biased because the only people who get tested are the ones who actually show up at the hospital? You have zero critical thinking skills

And also...have these individuals actually taken care of themselves or are they 300 pounders?

True, most people dying, it seems, are people being kept alive by science already.

And honestly, something will have to give. This country will stand for this for a month. 18 months? No fucking way. We better be making every ventilator we can, because by May you’re going to have the military deployed on our soil in order to keep people in their homes. Obviously we’ll know a lot more by May, but mitigation may have to be enough if we’re not prepared to take some drastic measures against our citizens.

So when does the country open back up? September? What’s everyone want to do first? Ballgame, concert, play, hug a stranger?

I’ve seen a lot of my conservative/libertarian friends say we need martial law NOW. If you are willing to give up your rights for this, you’re a fool. I guess I’ve also caved on my beliefs by voting for Trump. I’m disgusted to see him buying his re-election with helicopter money. I’m disgusted to see all the usual suspects getting bailed out AGAIN. This is a moment when we need leadership desperately. I do believe Trump understands what’s really going on economically and if he talked honestly about it, it’d just fall on deaf ears. Country is way too dumbed down.

All that said Iím sitting in a chair looking out my window waiting for UPS to drop off my toilet paper delivery from Amazon because there is a good chance someone will steal it if I donít get to it immediately. Life comes at you fast...

The Dems still have a chance with Sanders. But they won't go for him. He's too ''radical'', even though many of his proposals are simple logic. Stop the wealthy business interests et al from raping the country. Put the governments focus back on the people. FDRish.

Now before you disagree, remember that he'll have to cooperate with many other people from both parties. I think it's been proven that he's an honest politician, a rarity. You can't say that about Biden.

The store I go to has limited purchases of TP to 1 per customer.

Why did it have to be toilet paper? As my Dad said, diarrhea isn't even one of the symptoms. But I suppose people are afraid they'll be trapped inside for a long time or something...

This might make you smile. This choir from Arizona had their concert cancelled by the virus. So they did this while isolated at home.
