I’ll give my Credit Union a call tomorrow and go with that one...I’ll post their answer here tomorrow night at 6 pm.

Sorry I’m late.  They are mailing me a late notice as per their usual policy.

You can convert lives and hospitalizations to dollars...it’s inelegant, but you can.  I attempted that earlier.  
 

the fact that we live in such a polarized political environment makes all of this so much worse.  Remember: viruses don’t belong to a party.

Strange days indeed!

Yes sir, And this is the stupid game.  Every decision politicized.

Compared to hundreds of thousands of suicides? 

90+ year old WI man dies “from coronavirus” — “tragic,” according to the local media here.

20 teenage suicides in the past 5-7 years within a 30 mile radius of my house didn’t generate the same level of attention.  

What about deaths due to drug over dose? That kills a lot of our people, too. To me, that’s a tragedy. 

Quote

In 2018, 67,367 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States. The age-adjusted rate of overdose deaths decreased by 4.6% from 2017 (21.7 per 100,000) to 2018 (20.7 per 100,000). Opioids—mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone)—are currently the main driver of drug overdose deaths. Opioids were involved in 46,802 overdose deaths in 2018 (69.5% of all drug overdose deaths).1 Two out of three (67.0%) opioid-involved overdose deaths involve synthetic opioids

We been down that road here.....multiple times.  Those statistics are irrelevant based on the current crisis. Try to stay on point here.

My point was death in whatever form is bad.

I was told you’re more deader if it’s from coronavirus...

Are you implying my boy is lying about being sick and self-quarantining?

Strange days indeed!

I have thoroughly enjoyed watching a certain segment of the American population go from "TRUMP IS HITLER, TOTAL AUTOCRAT! HE MUST BE STOPPED" to "TRUMP ISNT DOING ENOUGH! THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS(insert laundry list of executive actions)!"

Thanks for all you’re doing Keikla

was talking to some Canadians that have to go home

they were wishing they could stay down here

they were worried about driving back thru NY on their way home, I guess they lose their health insurance if they don’t go home

Actually, I have one more thing to add.

The other day NY put out a call to all retired or currently unemployed healthcare workers and also those in other states who would be willing to come help.

As of this morning, over 40,000 HCP have volunteered.  AMEN.

The good thing about our country is that in times like these most people are willing to help where they can. Our politicians could take note, but they won’t. They’re worried about scooping up a handful of votes here and there when they could make a better impression simply acting with decency.

My wife considered coming out to NY since she just got laid off on Monday (RN in Twin Cities non-essential surgery clinic).  Two very young boys at home she doesn't want to be away from for potentially months.

Looks like I better order some takeout tonight, as I might not have another opportunity to do so in North Dakota soon.

Yeah, I am glad he's our governor during this though.  Can you imagine if Dalrymple was still moping around up there?
