That must be why we closed schools, cancelled or postponed medical treatments for anything not associated with COVID, cancelled sports and wrecked the economy. Those were easier than telling old and sick people to stay home to protect themselves.

I guess the bloom is off the rose now.

And this comes off of the news last week where Texas walked back nearly all their numbers, which were grossly inflated due to "errors in reporting" somehow some way. Interesting that those "mistakes" always, and I do mean ALWAYS, go in one direction only.
Is anyone surprised by this.... wow, it's almost like someone had an agenda to make this sound worse than it really is.... imagine that...

I keep reminding the geniuses at work, that WalMart and Target must hire smarter people than here as they can figure out how to work in this environment and you PhD’s stay in your house and piss yourselves.

I didn’t actually say piss yourself, but something very similar.

I must say our area is about back to regular business but with masks. Small price to pay to actually be able to act somewhat back to normal.

I wasn't commenting on that at all. I am not sure what the right thing to do is. Perhaps we let it run its course and it works out great. The economy is saved and we live happily ever after. But maybe the shit ends up hitting the fan and folks are dying in hospital hallways. I have no idea. Since my opinion (or lack of opinion) would be worth absolute shit there would be no purpose for me to comment on it.

All I do know is that they said from the beginning that the old and sick would be dying a hell of a lot more than young healthy folk.

This has been a complete shit-show from day ONE.

Fauci - Mistake
Birx - Ineffective
CDC- Thoroughly confused or inept
WHO - Political entity
China - Criminally negligent at a minimum
Trump - Relying on all of the above

Allrighty then. I don't doubt what you say is true. Just one question: Who is "they"?

Didn't take notes, but they were right as Cyber's post states that the old and sick deaths are 94% of the Covid deaths.

Not based on the forum "expert". I hadn't heard anything like that from the media.

Gee, that part is kind of important. If my Dr. told me that, I would put more faith in it than if my garbage man mentioned it.

I did. I honestly don't understand how someone could not have heard about it. But alas, I don't really care enough to continue to post about it.

The only thing I know about this is that they said that the old and sick were the most vulnerable. And what Cyber posted seems to back that up.

I don't really give a **** beyond that. Were they going to die anyway? Sure. Did Covid shorten their lives much? Don't know. If I gave them a roundhouse kick to their frail little necks would they have died on the spot? Yes.

Next ****er that quotes me gets Goatse and Tubgirl pics PM'ed to them.

The dipshit democrap Governor of PA has also murdered innocent people by sending COVID-19 infected people to nursing homes.

All the governors who did this should be charged and tried for murder. And if found guilty, should be publicly hanged.
