 >It won't be over, but hopefully, it will be on the decline and be just another normal happening, like flu and pneumonia.
    Nothing to upset the whole world over.

    Right iddee, especially if Chloroquine is made readily available. .

Hi Folks,

Walking Dead???!!!

I just saw Rita Wilson, Tom Hank's Wife. They both have the flu. She was all made up, looking good, staying home, .. rappin like I don't know what. Her lungs seem fine. Apparently, neither she nor her husband are dead yet.

Go down and click on her, Rita Wilson. Poor thing.

BTW: Justin Trudeau was on C-Span yesterday. He looks good too. He said nothing about any family members having died from the flu,...yet.

We weren't fooled,... again,...were we?

Sal, with the proper medication, there are reports of older folks fully recovering. Van covered the medication very well in another topic and post. My hat is off to MR VAN FROM ARKANSAS for his VALUABLE input and shared knowledge about this. I also want to thank The15Member and BAABEEs and others for their input on this.

Sal,
This is not a drill.
But the data is sketchy, unreliable, biased, distorted. Pick a word.
Facts from my circle:I live in Suffolk county, say 40 miles east of NYC. This county ranks high on the number of reported cases.My wife is a nurse. She has friends as nurses, doctors, Nurse practitioners, etc. representing several Long Island hospitals.To use Dr. Faucci's words - anecdotal evidence, not wholly based in reliable data.
Protective equipment is either scarce, not distributed appropriately, or being hoarded, etc. Governor Cuomo misled the public today. Health care workers in hospital settings ARE NOT adequately protected across the board.Not all New Yorkers believe that the economic cost to save every life is worth it. I do not. 80 year old people die. Sorry if that sounds cold. I am 61. If my time is up - at least I had a good run so far.
People on ventilators are not doing well. Death seems to be the more typical outcome of being put on respirators. Others experience flu like illnesses in severity and duration.
Testing statistics are unreliable. Direct contacts, (not friends of friends), with symptoms are being denied testing. So the number of cases are under reported.The rate of recovery is also under reported - or I cannot explain the criteria for such designation.Known coworkers have recovered, yet the number recovered shows none to date.Temperatures seem to rise, abate, rise and then abate again during the healing process. Think M shaped during recovery.

Hi Folks,

I live in Massachusetts, home of Mike Dukakis, John Kerry, and Lizzie Warren.  I?ve worked for and in government since 1981. I?ve worked for the State, Dept. of Revenue (under Dukakis). There were a few mantras: ?Never kill the job. If we don?t spend it, we won?t get level funded. Never let a good crisis go to waste?. I?m still involved.

No one has the whole story on this year?s flu. No one, as yet, has all the scientific data to make ?best decisions?. As I think you alluded, we?re only getting ?best guesses and opinions? so far. There is no truth.

Inco, I?ve got a few years on you. I?ve seen too many lies and omissions in the past few years, about BS. In my personal circle, people and media are both overtly and cunningly manipulative. You get only their spin on any issue.

These numbers are from tonight: In Massachusetts we have a population of about 7 million. We tested 19,794 people. We have:

1,838 confirmed cases, 9.3% of those tested;

15 deaths, .82% of confirmed cases (most, elderly, as you said, with pre-existing issues);

103 people have been hospitalized, 5.6% of those confirmed cases,

This is BOSTON! All elective surgery has been postponed (except abortions don't ya know). Can a mere 103 patients, in BOSTON create a bottle neck? Really?

Yet, our politicians mislead us with hyperbole. ?Hospitals are over-run. We?re keeping up with funerals?. (Male 80?s, Male 80?s, Male 70?s, Female 70?s) ??Never mind the under lying conditions. What if it was your relative??

They don?t want more tests. It makes statistics more accurate.

Incognito, I?m pretty much saying the same as you. I?m just more jaded.

State and local tax revenues have collapsed, screeching halt, kaput!

THE MONEY IS GOING TO COME FROM TRUMP! HE WILL FINALLY LOSE OR LEAVE! WE ALL HATE HIM!

These people will impoverish the country.

There were 2,023 drug overdose deaths in Massachusetts in 2019. No one cares.

There have been 56 auto fatalities in Massachusetts since January 1, 2020. Nobody?s banning cars.

Government loves chaos. Let those prisoners out! Don't arrest for drugs and burglary. Illegals have different laws. Resist ICE. Open borders.

This catastrophe is bogus.

Nurses wearing garbage bags for protection is real.


They are not just posing.

Hi Folks,

OMG!!! DNR????

(CNN)As the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the United States, some hospitals are considering whether to make changes to policies and practices when it comes to do-not-resuscitate situations.

And we have to discourage it,... on national TV.

What are they up to? Is this funny? Please click the link. This is funny: Caution! DARK HUMOR!!!

Hi Folks, Tsquared, Troutdog,

I never cared for that original My Sharona song. I listened to it though.

TD. Just because I'm from Taxachusetts doesn't mean I fit the general perceptions of the state political leanings. I think, though, that what you read was not what I meant. I should have used quotation marks. Those capitalized statements were sarcasm. I was implying that liberal politicians feel this way.

I'm glad you're both interested, if not yet passionate about the political paths our country may take in the future.

Read what you can. Take from it what you want. Determine who wrote it/said it, and why they wrote it. Maybe it's a lie.

Anyway, this thread is for big lies. You decide if it's a lie. What is truth to you is a lie for someone else.

Tell me some lies,... but make em good lies.

And don't hate me because I'm good looking.

Sal
