Sorry, but “you libs”???

As if everyone reads from the same playbook and agrees 100% of the time??

There’s a whole lot of grey out there, and even the more left of us don’t agree with each other all the time, nor do the whole right. I agree with some of the “right” sometimes, and I’m sure others do too.

Now the WHO says "asymptomatic spread is very rare", accounting for 6% of spread at most. WTF.
This is what I'm talking about. Wait a couple weeks and everything you thought you knew will be "updated".

They've already withdrawn that statement - "out of context" or "referring to another question" or something like that.

Months ago, we talked about how there was too much information, confusing, hard to keep track, & was making people anxious. Nothing's changed except we don't have hour-long briefings of Trump & his COVID19 team who spent most of their time contradicting what he'd said so as not to confuse the public. Living in NYC, it was hard to avoid being bombarded w/info, but I pretty much listened to Cuomo once/day & read the daily info from the health dept for NYC.

NYC is still not that different than it was in March in terms of openings, distancing, & masks. Basically, it's too expensive for all but the most sought-after retail/restaurants to bother opening especially when laid off workers get unemployment plus the $600 bonus through 7/31. The uber-rich fled the city according to cell phone tracking & other sources. Any time people can avoid public transportation & work from home, they take it so there's not been a rush back to office buildings & the city's 3 largest tenants have released some of their space because they don't want workers to return.

We're all in limbo as to whether new cases are going to spike due to re-openings, protests, & people generally not taking masks/social distancing seriously any longer & what governors are going to do in response. My decisions are pretty easy because nothing I do on a regular basis is open & travel is out because most European countries are still closed to US visitors unless they quarantine for 14 days in a hotel. Brisk walks in the parks are about it for me. Yes, it's getting old, but the same is true for everyone.

Like your reports from OH & Rusty's from coastal GA. I still smile at your astonishment when TJMaxx re-opened to the biggest crowd ever!






The days I don't read, listen or watch any news I feel liberated! Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

The WHO apparently got a lot of pushback on their statement. But it's like you said, there is soooo much information, and if you consume a lot of news you hear soooo much of it and you hear the changes, as people learn more, or different results and studies come in from one source or another and there are so many "experts" you have the global experts, you have the CDC, you have the local health people, you have the talking head experts, you have the op-ed experts, former this current that was once upon a time so-and-so....and it ends up like a bunch of puzzle pieces that don't fit together. You want to put the puzzle together but the pieces don't match up.

Yeah...and I still wonder why the hell a TJ Maxx store would have so many customers. I guess they are a big deal. We are having a TJX distribution center build in Lordstown where we lost the Chevy plant (supposed to have a electric truck and battery plant there too), so if people love them some TJ Maxx that is good for our coming DC if nothing else. Imported stuff on their shelves though....ugh...I wish I could just stop caring about stuff sometimes. Staying busier these days so less idle time to want to...or need to follow these current events and all of that.

That is most days for me. And yes it feels great. Makes it so when you do allow info, you are not preprogrammed by the constant blitz.

Agree that paying attention to the news is stressful

But, in keeping with the thread title.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/06/09/coronavirus-hospitalizatio ns-rising/

Many of these states that have experienced an increase in cases have also had an increase in hospitalizations, with a handful of states also nearing bed capacity. Hospitalizations nationwide are difficult to track, with states reporting hospitalization numbers in varying ways, or not at all. Even states that do report hospitalization numbers may not have always received complete data from every hospital in the state at the time of their reports.
Texas has reported 75,616 cases since the pandemic began, and in 10 of the past 15 days, the state’s seven-day average of new cases has increased.
As of Tuesday, it has reported two consecutive days of record-breaking coronavirus hospitalizations. The state has seen a 36 percent increase in new cases since Memorial Day, with a record 2,056 current hospitalizations as of early Tuesday afternoon. It was up from a high of 1,935 hospitalizations on Monday.

Edit to add
The question was asked where are the hosptial over-runs.
In addition to the WP article, there is this

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/10/health/us-coronavirus-wednesday/index.html

19 states see rising coronavirus cases and Arizona is asking its hospitals to activate emergency plans

Cable news is meant to drive people into a fury, and people expect dramatic updates every day. I read most of my content, it avoids the editorializing that drives some people mad.

So where are all those overrun hospitals in Georgia? You know when they opened up so aggresively we were told it would be a disaster. Where are the overrun hospitals in Texas? In Florida? In Ohio? I know Vermont's cases exploded. I mean they went all the way up to ONE covid patient in the entire states system. Of course have not even had more than one for weeks now but who cares.


Good question and one that will most likely be ignored. It must be terribly taxing to defend your original position of fear and what the virus is capable of when on the other hand you are supporting the thousands who've taken to the streets and are not practicing the same social distancing you preached just weeks ago.


Arizona hospitals maxing out. Covid round 2 .

You are bizarrely ignoring that those concerned about the virus resurging are concerned about unsafe crowds.


So, I could not help but notice your use of the phrase, "Unsafe" crowds. Does this open the door for the opposite?..as in "Safe crowds"? Are "safe crowds" only to be found in protests?..How about at outdoor concerts?..Is it even remotely possible that crowds numbering in the thousands might be able to practice the same safety measures that you have stated are being observed in the protest crowds?

Or is that "Just semantics"?....lol

Yes, most definitely. Which "side" do you feel uses the term "racism" in an accusatory manner more often?

Before my son deployed to NYC last month, his company told everyone to expect to deploy to the South and Midwest this Summer.

They knew those states would see increases the way they opened things up way too early.

Looking forward to lots of trumpsters with no masks, in Jacksonville, for their maga party this Summer.

Wott could go wrong?

Creepy indeed. It is definitely an old hand here. I can't say any more, but we are on it. First step was locating where and how they managed to access the internet.

Accessed the internet? Are they in prison? Never mind.

Please finish your detective work before you post again in other threads; you're really off your game & not making friends. I say this as someone who generally agrees w/you & laughs at your silly attempts to lighten things when they get too dark.

No, they mentioned both areas.

Looks like the Midwest is doing much better than the South.

Things are looking grim in Floriduh and Texas.

Yeah, no way he would bring Hillary and her baggage back on. No way she would take a back seat. I think Harris or Rice are great choices. I like Warren, but she doesn't have the broad appeal that Biden really needs.

Of those listed, my choices in order would be Rice, Harris, and not Warren. I think Val Demings of Florida would also be a good choice (HOR member & former police chief for Orlando). There are others, but Joe will pick along with advisors.

HC was a nonstarter. Why anyone would have thought she would have either been a prez or vp nominee baffles me. She's done.
