    Ok, if it was just a wild @ss guess on your part, I’m sorry, I hope you can see how it came across as “you knowing.”

    The death totals are overestimated I believe as well.
    But....if we all get it at once and the hospitals can't help you as a result then we may have a much larger total that if we try to progress it slowly

    We have no idea how long the virus has been floating around this country. We only started testing in March. Yet months before it could have already been here doing it's thing. That's why the hot spots are out of control.
    So the truth is that chit had already hit the fan and now we're just cleaning it up.
    New York ,Cruise Ships and Italy will disagree with you.

    Our hospitals would be overwhelmed like New York and Italy.. Luckily for New York they were able to float one over there.
    We have a shortage of ventilators already... unchecked the problem would be much worse.
    Some people go from no symptoms at all to kicking on deaths door in a matter of hours.. ventilators keep them alive.
    The Boston business where one person infected 30 people
    The family reunion of 11 where four died..three of them were in thier 50s..
    Back to NY...can we imagine how worse it would be if there were no restrictions and five times as many people were infected?
    People dieing on cruise ships.. wonderful.
    How about your doctor killing you with the virus when you went to get your insulin adjusted.
    It's a rough virus for sure... to rough to let it run wild.

    MG, You are the only Trump guy I know that is not just "towing the line" when it comes to this. Every MAGA hat wearing guy I know still insists this is no big deal. I have a new respect for you.

    Overfilled Hospitals and death rates support my current position.
    Also many nations that took drastic measures early have very few deaths

    I couldn't find the video I was looking for but ran across this one.. it's longer.. but covers what covid19 is... Why it's so bad.. and why we can not handle to many cases at once.. Just watch it.

    Let's say the pandemic is as bad as they claim it could be. Once quarantine restrictions are lifted wouldn't it be likely there will be a resurgence? If restrictions are in place to help prevent the overloading of our healthcare system, that is one thing. If they are in place to fight the virus, I can't say I agree with them.

    My grandson went thru the same at the beginning of the year. Cough and congestion for 2 months. Think he had a mild fever for 1 or 2 days. Pediatrician didn't know what it was and said not to worry.

    We accept 50,000 traffic deaths a year. We accept cancer deaths. We accept suicides. We accept ’em.

    Well, we haven’t accepted. We have accommodated.

    We don’t stop. We don’t shut down the country every time somebody commits suicide. We don’t stop the country when somebody gets the flu or gets hospitalized with or dies from it. And it’s because we’ve just accepted it. It’s a part of life, and there are prevention methods, and there are things you can do to help people not succumb to those things. With this, there’s nothing yet, and so that’s the big — shall we say — difference or equalizer.

    We’ve got nothing to tell people to do other than hibernate.

    Those numbers are shocking and revealing and ought to be generating a great deal of discussion.
