The experts did better than the man in charge.

 

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/timeline-president-donald-trump-changing-statements-on-coronavirus/

 

Feb. 26: 58 confirmed cases in U.S. 

The 15 cases in U.S. "within a couple days is going to be down close to zero"

  • "I want you to understand something that shocked me when I saw it that — and I spoke with Dr. Fauci on this, and I was really amazed, and I think most people are amazed to hear it: The flu, in our country, kills from 25,000 people to 69,000 people a year. That was shocking to me. And, so far, if you look at what we have with the 15 people and their recovery, one is — one is pretty sick but hopefully will recover, but the others are in great shape. But think of that: 25,000 to 69,000. ... "And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that's a pretty good job we've done," the president said during a Coronavirus Task Force Press briefing at the White House.

March 10: 1,300 confirmed cases in U.S. 

"Just stay calm. It will go away"

  • "Well, this was unexpected. This was something that came out of China, and it hit us and many other countries. You look at the numbers; I see the numbers with just by watching you folks. I see it — it's over 100 different countries. And it hit the world. And we're prepared, and we're doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away," the president said on Capitol Hill after meeting with Republican senators

Wasn’t this about the same time Democratic leadership was accusing him of manufacturing a crisis to serve as a distraction?  Should he have told everyone to panic and freak out?  I can only imagine the Democrat response if he had.

Any comment on Traitor Trump selling out our soldiers to Putin?   He's an absolute disgrace for a human being and the worst president in our history.

Which citizens, exactly, are you criticizing?

I think there are plenty of us who have embraced #factsnotfear and are living our lives, working, shopping, eating, recreating, getting haircuts, etc., but who understand the risks and are managing them effectively. Some of us will eventually test positive, some will get sick and yes, some will die.

And, perhaps shockingly to some, there are countless others who have thrown caution to the wind and are engaging in excessively risky behaviors. Many of them may test positive, many may get sick. Yet...get ready for this...some will still not get sick.

The only common denominator is that none of us are willing to "listen" to people with a perverse desire to suppress human nature and stifle normal behaviors for uncertain objectives and who can't seem to embrace the simple fact that one of the most important "sciences" at play here is statistics.

Anyone who doesn't wear a mask indoors in public is a good start.  The fact that the President made that a political statement is mind-boggling.

I can respect Costco’s stance on masks. Will I wear a mask in my car or my own home? Not a chance in hell! Getting a haircut? Yep- done it twice. Golfing or restaurant/patio or other - no way! 

I have been playing hockey too since April. We’ve been just fine!

Care to comment on that “story” being completely made up BS by the media?  
Or will you just ignore my question, like you have every other time that I’ve pointed out your stories are fiction?

Exactly. Same reason the polls always slant to the left. Lazy non working folks have plenty of time on their hands to sit on the phone answering meaningless surveys.

That story certainly isn't "BS by the media"..... it's been confirmed by multiple news outlets both foreign and domestic.   I'd be curious what source you have that makes it BS other than Trump tweeting that he wasn't briefed about it.

Now three new symptoms: diarrhea, nausea, runny nose. 

https://www.the-sun.com/news/1047021/cdc-three-new-coronavirus-symptoms-diarrhea-runny-nose/

A while back I said I went through ORD in mid-January and was as sick as I’ve ever been two weeks later to the day for about 36 hours. Coincidence? My symptoms? Nausea, diarrhea, chills, fever, fatigue, body aches ... just like in the CDCs updated list. 

Have you gone in for the antibody test? I know of someone with the similar in February, recent antibody test showed negative for igg.

I believe Trump is the best foreign policy President since Thomas Jefferson.

Asinine. How the closure can include bike trails is simply unfathomable. I feel confident that most people would just as soon take their chances with the virus.

Government fear mongering is out of control. And the power has gone to their heads in the worst way. 

Which is it...social distancing and masks?  Stay at home?  If the masks work as advertised, what's the problem?  If they don't work, why the constant badgering?  Does personal liberty mean anything to anyone anymore?

Who are we even protecting at this point?  The sick and elderly, or the fragile egos of those who have pushed all of their chips into the middle in the name of 'one death is too many' on little more than paranoia and self-aggrandizement?

Who wants to live in this version of America anyway?

I'd like to get Fauci's opinion on this before I comment....   :silly:

Well, not all mask lives matter. You see all masks aren't the same. If there was a standard for all masks and a requirement standard, I wouldn't have a problem. Ftr, I have no problem wearing a mask at Costco or getting a haircut. Again, though, the masks are a dog and pony sh^t show.

Speak to the topic at hand.  it was about closing beaches.  Which makes no sense at all when comparing to all the other outdoor events going on around the country.

So the indoor events are ok while the outdoor events are not. Hence the dumpster fire.
