If headed into war you figure out how you will deal with the casualties before you go.

Before we consider opening up the economy we need to have a plan to deal with the casualties. This includes facilities, general equipment, ventilators and staff to run everything.

The politicians that are telling us we are better off opening up the economy are also guaranteed the best facilities, people and equipment if anything happens to them. With the pictures of Spain and Italy with people laying on the floors of the hospital the politicians all realize it won't be them or their family on the floor.

If the cause of a recession was because of Trump, then you may have an argumentment. But to blame a recession caused by this virus on trump, is just plain idiotic.

He never blamed Trump for the recession, he said the recession would be politically fatal. Yet to be seen but this definitely isn't helping him get reelected.

What does the alternative look like for us if we just ignore the virus and get back to our normal routines? A few people dead? Everyone dead?!
This whole thing is a function of the omnipresent media and the power they wield over every day living, government, politics, etc.

Period.

You might ask yourself, are these 2 things mutually exclusive? Can the virus be a pandemic without the media portrayal? I'm a resounding no on this one. Anyone that buys into the pandemic/hysteria are merely pawns.

If you were in charge what would you do?

If Trump believes it is a non problem, why did he hire a scientist that feels the opposite, why doesn't he find a scientist the believes what you believe? is there one? If scientists and the media agree, your theory seems really weak.

Using Trump as your crutch for the argument is nonsensical...
Trump must react in this manner otherwise its political suicide.
ITS JUST THE FUCKIN FLU.

You missed every question asked, assuming because you have no answers. I'll try again, if you were in charge what would you do?

Trump, politicians, doctors, scientists, and the media all say it is serious. Don't forget what is going on in Italy and Spain and how the rest of the world is reacting to the same problem. You take all of this information in and blame the media yet can find no one except other internet "specialists" to agree with you.

It's the only disease we have that is growing exponentially with no treatment or vaccine. Check out Italy - https://www.worldometers.info/corona...country/italy/

This actually proves some of his point. Disneyland has been closed since the 14th. And this picture is dated the 16th.

Edit

Actually I am wrong, disneyworld is what's in the picture, but they were supposedly closed on the 16th too.

Your post was wrong and I pointed in out.

For this question, yes some people will vote for Biden. You're throwing out really tough questions.....

This was the final night at magic kingdom.

Disney superfans are a special breed though, a lot of them would sacrifice their family's lives for the mouse.

I get it. People who do not take any kind of risks socially still need something to comprise their identity.

Some people are super BMW freaks and that is their identity, others it is their football team, for some it is Trump, and others it is Disney.

Many people can dabble in each and still be able to function socially without discussing any of them. Some choose one and go all in. They are easy to spot as that is all they talk about because they have made that their identity.

I get it. I mean I could talk all day about punk rock records and movies but I have come to learn that most dont give a fuck anyway so I will save my energy and simply enjoy among like minded individuals. Social media is great for finding such and a side effect of this is social acceptance for people taking things way too far like it is a contest and Disney fans are at the forefront of doing so.

People rushed in after they heard the place is going to be closed due to COVID-19.
That's a tweet from Abigail Disney, the grand daughter of the co-founder of the Walt Disney Company.
These people seriously lack reality check.
In fact most Americans did/do.
Mask is not just for sick people when fighting against COVID-19 because you can infect others without knowing you're infected.
Covering face in public places shouldn't be taboo'd until the war against this virus is over.
Both the sick and the healthy should be wearing masks and bring hand sanitizers with them when leaving home.
