Why is this on here and why is it allowed mods???
Damn do some of you like being boisterous and put down others with crap like this because they don't party think like you. Mafia I met you way way back in Joe Sensor's days and you didn't act like this in person back then, but people do change over the years. Should I post the white nationalist march pictures? Nazi fascism posters to represent the Republican party? People are entitled to their opinions but many of you are trying to bully others into submission or into not posting.
I've voted for both parties in the past and neither in last presidential election (I'd like an official 3rd party on ballot). What many of you that act like this don't realize is you actually make a middle of the road guy like me disgusted and want to vote the other direction.
I also don't understand the party of pro-life being so callous in essentially wanting others to die. Sure many things kill people and we don't know the final numbers of this. And that's part of the problem. We don't know. It might be hundreds of thousands or maybe less than flu. Also on the flu how many died that could've been saved if they got the shot? I am one that doesn't get the shot. And yes other problems will arise from this shutdown like suicides. But if you're all of a sudden so concerned about suicides then maybe you should be worried about guns since they are the leading choice to commit suicide. (and I've had family commit suicide).
Personally I do think closures started too early and unnecessary in areas that haven't had a case yet. Then I hear as Walz said today Minnesota only has 235 ICU beds. If no bed and you have this virus he said you are 10 times more likely to die. I believe all these facts coming from the U of MN. If that's true then dang kind of important to make sure more infrastructure is in place. And maybe federal and state governments should have gotten moving in January on this to avoid shutting everything down??? I haven't been able to confirm this but saw where this is more contagious as it stays on surfaces way longer. Flu spreads to 1.4 people a day. So even if you were contagious for 10 days it goes to 24 people you infected. This virus a person averages spreading to 3 people a day. If true after 10 days (and isn't it contagious longer) you have spread to 59,000 people. Again haven't confirmed this, but even if it's 2 a day it's a jump of infecting 1024 over 10 day period.
This sucks on all fronts and will be debated for a long time after. Hopefully we learn from it and are better prepared on how to manage this better next time. Feel free to reply, but I won't be checking. Following Keikla's lead and out of this thread.
