Um, Trump shut it all down to begin with. And Trump spent $6 trillion to fix his failings.



Did you bump your head too?


Man, Cole....just...wow.

Trump shut it down? He left it up to the States this entire time! You know...in accordance with the Constitution?


True and he do do nothing the first month, so then there is that.

93,471 deaths


The economy and keeping Trump in office is their only concern.

Trump closed all immigration and killed off all travel of the Chinese, though he did let 40,000 enter the country from China.

Opie, you are right, this is a hard one to figure out.

Yep, another risk of "living" to deal with. Personally, I wouldn't be too concerned with something that kills off .03% of the population on a daily basis. Especially when a high percentage of that .03% is comprised of people with certain risk factors. And that statistic is not static, but will taper down with time.

Ding has those risk factors.

If it turns out to be 500, that's exactly what we'll do. Somehow we managed to live our lives with 8000 Americans dying every day before this happened. So 500 is insignificant.

We may have caught a break with warming weather playing a role. Will be interesting to see what happens next winter. Hopefully it peters out for good.

Not sure I would say a 6% increase in death rate is insignificant.

Also I seem to recall the flag waivers getting us into a pointless war costing us trillions off dollars and ultimately getting over 4000 us military killed to avenge the death of....3000 New Yorkers But hell 100000 dead is nothing to them now.

Oh, please do. You know how many times people have purported to mark one of my posts to bring it up in the future? Dozens. You know how many have followed through? Exactly zero. I'll be more than happy to add you to that list. So, let's set the parameters. Two months from today, lock downs will be a thing of the past, except for those poor people in some prog run states..But even most of them will be freed, as they will rebel. People will be going to restaurants, bars and their favored shops. Businesses will be reopened. Beaches will be packed on July 4th. Most people - though not progs, due to their innate stupidity - will see this lock down as an overreaction. So, see you in July. No, I won't.

Not 6%. A good number of those deaths would have occurred anyway from other causes over the course of a year.

'15 soon to be zero' - talk about a complete failure. The adults had to rein shit in.

You are right, it is over. This clown is going to be fired by ByeDon come November.

Do tell. Did you get this info from your majik 8 ball? Yes by far it is the weak, elderly like yourself succumbing to the disease but I think it's a stretch to say many if not most would be dead within the year anyways.

Over 40 dead in FL yesterday and again today. And someone says it's over? the only thing that is over is tspank's descent into full clown mode.

Oh I'm sure there won't be lock downs and I'm sure businesses will be reopened. That doesn't mean the pandemic is over. I am talking people that get sick and people that die here.

What constitutes 'panic' is subjective. Numbers are not

Remember the Good Old Days, way back when, when Uncle Joe simply "got sick" and died?
