Anybody disagree with unemployed getting more money in the stimulus checks than you made while working???

Wonder how all the folks still working, feel about that? Being run ragged and most likely to contract the virus.

Especially those serving in the public safety and health sector.

DarDys,  Its not trump's fault if he didn't sign my God hes holding up the bipartisan bill.If he does sign oh my God look what hes done why are we supporting him. Question is whats he supposed to do.There is poison pills on both sides people need help. I say the worthless congress should have said we are donating our salaries for the corona virus fight. It won't matter to them there all millionaire and billionaires already. At least all that money is going to Americans most who really need it rather than foreign aid. I understand some parts are just beyond explanation but it is what it is.

Hats off to those four Senators who objected to that recent stimulus Bill. Hopefully, this gets cut off in the House but I highly doubt it. 
Weekly unemployment was over 3 mil, well over the 1 mil projection. Texas states that it wasn't able to process 800,00 applications, so next week we should see an even bigger spike.

All's I know if it's true, is that medical workers in Hong Kong once they received approved PPE hardy any got the virus afterward. Makes common sense to me . This has to be top priority or should have been weeks ago .

Dano, I have to agree and have to think about all the time wasted getting political "porkfat" pushed out of the way that could/should have been used to discuss matters like this.

Anyways, another food-for-thought comment involves everyone filing a "tax return" last year and "getting a return" will see a "check-in-the-mail".

Is that check, for those "working", filing, and getting a return???


Or, as usual, did I miss sumpthin?

I agree but it's puzzling why the FDA holds up approving a drug readily available being used (since WW II to present) as both a treatment and prevention?? Heck the drug is proving beneficial in treating a wide range of problems from Arthritis to Malaria.

Regardless the need, the drug has been used long enough to reveal side effects as well as factors that can reveal persons who can not tolerate the drug.

Like Penicillin, for example, not everybody can benefit from the use but those people can be identified.

You are correct, no matter what he does, it will get the spin to a narrative.

How about not signing it and using the daily update, which can be viewed live by the American people, without any commentary spin, to put up portions of the bill that are totally unrelated to the virus, and point out that while immediate relief is needed, until these frivolous, pork barrel items that would never be able to make their way into funding through the normal legislative process, he will not sign it and he urged Congress to redo the bill without them posthaste because the American people are waiting — and watching.

Boy-O-Boy do I agree with that but I'm thinking as each day goes by, more and people will become numb to the "Porkfat" seeing it as a common practice and right now, only their welfare is of concern.

Noooo doubt, Pelosi and Schumer is/was abusing the stimulus pkg and placing their political careers ahead of the American people.

Speaking of political careers, why doesn't it surprise me, seeing the Swampcrats exposing themselves the way they are, knowing all their showboating is now recorded on video and will be used by opponets in upcoming elections.

In their desperation, they must be thinking they can spin their antics and blame Trump when in reality, their "grandstanding" will be used not only against them but against "democrats" in general.

Really a shame the manner in which Pelosi & Schumer have destroyed the Democratic Party, allowing a near complete take over by socialist & 3rd world radical people, pretending to serve in the best interest of WeThePeople.

There are good people belonging to the Democrat Party who certainly could turn the party around and my fingers are crossed, those folks will embark on their political careers beginning this election

Likewise, the GOP needs an overhaul and in good time as well, I hope.

However I have never, in my 49 years of voting, seen such low scumbag democrat politics like I've seen in the past 3+ years.

If there is a wonder drug out there I believe it's being tested now, but like any drug the proof is in the testing outcome ....and that does take time for the safety of all.  I'm surprised the CBD gurus haven't made a claim to their wonder drug on fighting this virus ....seems that snake oil cures about anything ...so they say .
 
PPE is the priority now ...tossing money at sick and dying people means nothing !  
 
This virus has no calendar ...so the future is totally uncertain to all of us .

Maybe shorter term limits and no lobbing would help cleanse our politics  ....fat chance ...huh ! ...."both parties are full of crooks and cons " that's why neither would vote a bill like that in !  Until that happens ....we continue to ague from the middle picking sides.

Re: Coronavirus opinions 2020/03/26 11:55:34 (permalink)
Just heard an interesting take on the radio by a statistician. His contention is that looking at the death rate per infected persons is inaccurate because many infected persons are either asymptomatic or only show mild symptoms and are not tested. This means that only those that have a severe case and get tested are counted, even though they are a small subset of those who actually contract the virus.

He suggests that the death rate, in order to be an accurate measure of how programs, policies, and actions are being effective is took look at the death rate for the virus in the same manner as other death rates - as a measure against population.

Looking at it that way, the virus death rate vim the US is 3 per million population. In Italy, it is 140+ per million.

There are a number of reasons why the death rate is higher in Italy, for example their population skews older. However the most important reason is that their healthcare system is completely overwhelmed because they did a horrible job at managing the outbreak. Make no mistake, the same thing can and will happen here if our healthcare facilities become overwhelmed as their did.

Thunderpole it's good to vent but if ya do catch a stupid fish remember to not run around hugging everybody. Be well and tight lines.


So for me, I'm planning my itinerary and no problem with our first layover in Alabama or 2nd stop in Kentucky but as soon as I locate a KOA just outside of Columbus OH, I'm told the Gov has shut down OH and campgrounds are to remain closed until at least, April 7.

So I sez to my self.... shhugar-pops what now. Welp I thought, back up 10 yds and punt and thats what I done except it was back-up miles, not yards, where Son-of-a-beehive I found a rv park that said no problem because OH rv parks may accept travelers returning to their homes and because I was traveling annnnnd returning home so I would be welcome.

How gooder is that, can you imagine moi being welcome!!! Priceless.

Nationwide 3/26, from the CDC website:
Total confirmed cases: 68,440
Deaths: 994
 
Of the 68,440 cases nationwide, almost 33,000 cases are in NY state because (unsurprisingly) NYC is a hotspot. I'm seeing estimates that the peak of infection in NYC could be 14-21 days away, but obviously nobody knows for sure. 
 
The CDC site says 1,128 cases in PA but the PA dept of public health says 1,687, including 133 in Allegheny county, including two deaths. Keeping an eye on local numbers may give you an idea as to when restrictions may be eased for the less densely populated areas of PA.
 
NYC is in big trouble though. It is going to get much worse there before it gets better.

After I posted I checked the weather, probably won't go rain pending... seen quite a few people on my fb reporting symptoms similar to mine . But no-one can qualify for testing . My cousin lives in NYC I told her weeks ago to get out she is now stranded . She wouldn't listen , now it's to late and she's very smart stubborn as well.

Also, here is an excellent article on Medium that is  totally non-political and very informative. It does a pretty good job of translating the wonky side of epidemiology into layman's terms, and it offers what is probably a pretty accurate glimpse into the way in which public health officials are evaluating the current situation. Its about a week old so some of the data is not current.

And jus a couple days ago he was sayin' sumpthin bout Trump rallyin' up da red base jus to point da finger at the dirty citys dem blue votin' folks be livin in when i'z talkin bout my concerns. He even got dem fancy numbers 'n stuff that be showin' them city folk might be more likely to get dat dere coronivirus. I sure do hope all dem super smart city folk that preach about lookin out fer others be gettin' tested before dey flee to my area. I'd hate to see dem be spreadin' sumpthin they know they could possibly have. Anyway, danks gien MyWar for pointin' my simple rural rendneck azz in the right di reaction!

The strategy behind all of this isn't actually that complicated. 
 
1) In the short term, flatten the curve so that hospitals aren't overwhelmed. So you can look at the numbers, and when they stop going up so fast then that means the suppression strategy is working. Relaxing the restrictions will not be too far behind. It won't happen all at once, and we won't get back to "normal" for some time, but things will get better than they are now, slowly. 

2) In the long term, we need to prepare for additional waves by building up a healthcare system that can withstand pandemics ALOT better than this. That means more masks, ventilators, hand sanitizer, test kits, etc... We need more resources for hospitals as well as everyday stuff for the general public. And next time we need to take it seriously from day one.

Re: Coronavirus opinions 2020/03/26 21:20:30 (permalink)
Per that Medium article, there was a 12-day lag between the lockdown and the peak of new cases in Hubei. We should expect to see something similar in the US, although the numbers are going to vary region to region because different cities in different states reacted at different times, so the peaks won't all occur at the same time. 
 
What I think is a "total unknown" at this point is what exactly happens after the peak. What restrictions get removed first? And when? Do we need to eliminate all traces of the virus in a community before we open up bars and restaurants or go back to work? What about schools and universities? These are going to be some really tough decisions.
