I'm like most and in the middle of the road on this shit.  I'm not worried about it.  I worry about the dumbasses that are overreacting to it. 

I still have a full shop of employees (about 100) and we are still just getting it done.  We have orders to fill and customers to support.  I had two off of first shift that have child care issues because of everyone being out of school.  No problem you have just been moved to second shift until all this blows over. 

I firmly believe that the reason why we have not had many personnel problems is because I have worked really hard in rooting my employees in reality long before this shit came about.  Plus I also had long ago cycled out the dipshits that were always looking for the free ride.

What is going to be funny is over the next week or two when the testing becomes more readily available, I believe you will see a massive spike in the numbers of people infected....Well no shit there are more being tested.  Doesn't change how you handle it but mark my words there will be people losing their shit over it and inciting the sheep.

I don't care who gets it as long as they don't die. The name of the game is to keep the deaths to a minimum.
We could have the lowest death toll in the world and the left would still bitch.

Would you let a person die to save 100? The answer is always yes unless that 1 person is a loved one. Unfortunately for all of us, we are ALL going to die. No way around it. No amount of technology or science can stop it. 

I’m much closer to the “go on with every day life” side than I am the middle ground here.  The reason? Where is the line drawn to start everything up again? It took over a year to end the swine flu. We still haven’t ended influenza.  How long are we willing to suspend life? Even if it’s through the rest of the year (insane to think about) this stuff may be around for the rest of our existence.  It simply doesn’t make sense to destroy economies in an effort to stop the inevitable. 

If we all agreed to stop driving cars and walk everywhere we have to go for just 6 months we can save roughly 15,000 people. No telling how much our obesity levels would drop. 

If we all agreed to give up our guns we could save roughly 38,000 people a year. 

Who decides what death is acceptable and what isn’t?

I am not willing to give up a single liberty for the fear of death when I’m going to die anyway.

I think the biggest question for me is, why this one?  Why have we gone into what amounts to mass hysteria over Covid-19.  How is this one so much different, along with our reaction to it?  H1N1 Swine Flu killed 12,469 in the U.S. and 575,400 world wide.  We're not even remotely in that ballpark right now.  Will we be?  I have no clue.

However, a report I saw last week said China, while still dealing with some of it, was pretty much back to normal, meaning this virus will run its course as they all do.  Honestly, I don't want anyone to catch it, suffer from it and certainly not die from it.  But guess what?  Next year will bring a new strain of some sort and they'll give it a weird name like Pine Cone Virus or Ass Juice Flu.  Are we going to decide that what we're doing now in quarantining ourselves and shutting down the entire economy, is the proper response?

Bunkers in the front yard.  What a joke.




Besides, do you have any idea how hard it is to rent a backhoe right now?  Damn near impossible.

Why this one? Sadly for political reasons.  Obama got to skate on H1N1 because he was left. Trump does not get a pass because the media hates him. When he first stopped flights from China the media ran him down. When he stopped travel to Europe CNN made certain to get quotes from the EU chastising him. He can’t win but if he didn’t take the measures he’s taking they would blame him for all of the deaths in November.

I assumed K and GH were claiming middle ground stance.

I've drifted back into the "this is a ridiculous bullshit overreaction" at this point.  

Knee-jerk bastards cancelling shit MONTHS out because .... who the fuck knows?  College graduations already cancelled?  Classes cancelled for the rest of the year?   

Here's what's going to happen.  This shit will go up a little over the next week, week and a half.  And then?  

Pfff...ffff....fffffff...fwaahhhhhhhh.  

It's not going to come NEAR H1N1.  It's not going to remotely approach Ebola. It's not going to scratch the regular fucking flu.  There's a very good chance that you won't even know anyone first hand who actually had it.  Oh, you'll have some diddle fuck you know who CLAIMS to have had it, but he didn't.  Drama bitches.  

I've yet to see the first iota of proof that it's truly SOOOOO much more communicable.  I don't think it is. 

 Studies say it can live on clothes, that kids carry it, that millennials won't get sick, that it's in the air, that it's on your dog, that it lives on plastic, that it is delivered by the Easter Bunny.  Horseshit.  All of that is complete speculation.  I read some long ass, fear-infused story about how the virus lives on plastic for up to three days and you could be infected from touching this, that or the other.  And then, buried in the middle, is the admission that "there is no evidence whatsoever that anyone has contracted the disease in this manner, but they could" because IT LIVES ON PLASTIC!!!   

Fuck all this noise.  

FUCK the government telling businesses they have to close and lay off millions of workers.   

This?  I was on board for just a little while, but I'm riding the fuck YOU train again now.  I'm riding it HARD.  I really wish Trump had stuck to his "get over yourself" guns and just closed the border and told people to make sure they washed their hands.   It would have been no worse than it is going to be anyway.

agreed with all you mentioned.  the H1N1 was not a problem because Donald J Trump was doing naughty things to a porn star [allegedly] ... he wasn't 45. the snowflakes and the swamp didn't care.

I had it out with a few attorneys yesterday.  We are members of an email group of plaintiff attorneys where we bounce ideas and questions off each other.  Quite the liberal bunch and yesterday they posted something written by Prez Bush in 2005 on how to prepare for a pandemic.  They were slamming Trump for being unprepared blah blah freakin' blah, and quoting the NYT to back up their position. 

My response was along the lines of as of today, there are 81,000 reported infections in the U.S with under 150 deaths.  In 2009, we had a pandemic that infected over 61 MILLION Americans and killed over 12,400.  The measures we are all taking under Trump are unprecedented.  Never, ever happened before.  What exactly did Obama do while the hospitals were overrun with sick people?  What measures of preparedness did he mandate once we came out of it?  And the very edict you posted from Bush was 4 years before that.  Answer:  he did NOTHING!!!  Not a damn thing.

And here's the problem I have.  How many times have we heard that hospitals around the country are not equipped to handle something like this?  My question is what in the hell did you fail to learn from the pandemic in 2009?  Why didn't you realize that something like this could be a major problem in the future and make the necessary preparations for when something like this hits?  Why are you saying now that you are unprepared?  Oh yeah, it's Trump's fault.

When you plagerize from Kaos and I, get your numbers straight. The 81000 is from china.
The US is at 15000 now.
