  1. No lie there. My wifes family accuse me of being a treasonous commie for calling him on his insanity. Its dangerous how divided we are and how weaponized they made this to score political points
  2. i get that you want to phase things back in, but this is case where the cure needs to be worse than the disease.
  3. so even ar half that are you willing to accept that collateral damage to keep the economy going? if beleive are afraid to go, ptsd kicks in when the bodies pile up even a third of that will destroy us socially and economically.
  4. so some quick research says that our us population under 50 is about 200 million people....1% is still 2million deaths, .5 cfr is 1 million i mean really to me that says keep it locked down.
  5. dr birx jjust looked very uncomfortable when he said it would be weeks. He alone is going to be responsible for wave 2 resulting in many more deaths then needed, if wave 1 even ends.
  6. and right there is the problem. altruism needs to be back in style. these companies have a ton of cash and the govt will backstop them, would it kill them to let payment slide while we try n figure out how to feed ourselves.....thank God i paid attn to grandma teaching me how to bake breads, make pastas and soups etc. my wife cn cook and i can cook and bake (not just 420 LOL) so as long as we have the 50lbs of flour on hand w yeast i can feed us. im intending to do a neighborhood feed and deliver beans n rice, salad dessert to ur far neighbors as an effort of good will. its frustrating, i get it. we had a very valuable business go under during the crash of 08/09 and we recovered by filing bankruptcy and moving somewhere cheaper than nj and start over. folks the signs are out there if you in smaller poorer towns of societal breakdown coming. Our neighborhood Food Lion was robbed at gunpoint when they followed the delivery truck in at closing time. what was stolen, no mony...just meat, tp, and baby prodducts
  7. a third year teacher makes under 42k per year here. after taxes etc its a real struggle, and she has no pension at this point, the year before she changed careers they changed how that works. health insurance dont even start, for our family it would 1900 a month thru her employer.
  8. well my bank account has about 2 bucks in it every mnth by this time so yea not so much. my wife is a teacher and i am awaiting a disability judgement, so we live as a family of 4 off a 3rd year teacher income. im worried about keeping enough people healthy to move the country forward in 18 months or so.
  9. my thought proess is simple. how do we know they are healthy? some people test neg a few times then positive....yes im paranoid but this could kill me easily, as well as my asthmatic wife. im not sure what the answer is anymore....if we could survive the depression, the spanish flu and other times of lockdown, why cant we survive this. yes i get stagflation would take effect and we could become the weimar reupblic, but if the fed is willing to print the money and what not and support the workers, why not shut it down for 6 months. grant amazon drone usage permits, same with food stores etc. there has to be a way....
  10. how can you say the originals fears are being ignored. while i havent set foot in a store or eatery in 2 weeks, everyone in our litle town is disregsrding orders, its like a summer vacation to most, and seeing those pics from nyc parks yesterday its apparent many others arent either. even dr fauci has said we are weeks away from seeing if we have flattened the curve in any appreciable form. how can you say hospitals arent overwhelmed, maybe not yet, but lets see where we are in a week or two, any releae of stay at home plans before then is just suicidal as a nation. man do i wish there free time to put you and kaner into a debate...id love the listeners to hear both perspectives and i might just learn even more. if ya can find time whos down to have a conversation that we can put up and try and disperse some info with.
  11. my replies in red for where i live. man you are a really smart dude, im starting up a podcast and would love to pick your brain in it on finanacials etc....
  12. im not saying that. or maybe not finding the right words anymore. its just that the idea of opening things back up at all scares me. everything trump does is to stroke his ego.....cuomo is just trying to stay above water and not look like a dumbass. this is some serious discussion and im not an expert by far but i just cant see where opening schools etc is a good idea. i am immunocompromised due to surviving thyroid cancer and having other issues that involve my nervous system, so the idea of sending my wife back out there to teach when we just dont know the potential of a second wave being stronger and longer(jb!!!) we need to act out of an abundance of caution. We survived the great deperession which was a way longer lack of business so this can be done. if trump would simply say k...executive action and sign it and just hand out the money it would solve alot. i mean im not sure he has the power to do that, but these times call for decisive action. If he just did that and told americans the honest truth and said ok we shut it down til aug and review, it could be his fdr new deal moment. He could single handly save the country and bring us all together....i know it a different time, but you want to fund the citzen bailout, sell Virus bonds like war bonds....something anything ...
  13. i think removing restrictions in 2 weeks is a huge mistake. as for relection i mean trump. not to make it political, but his portions of the press conferences are just ridic. openly mocking mitt romney, refering to the deep state dept etc.... listening to schumer, as a conservative, i agree. we need to know where the money goes, no layoffs only furloughs if you want to have a grant. no stock buybakcs period....im telling you surely as i breathe, bernies idea of revolution is nothing to what is coming in the streets if they dont start money flowing. and look around asia, second wave seems to be starting as restrictions are being lifted. i had family who survived the 1918 spanish flu, and my grandma used to tell me spring time 1918 was bad, but what happened in wave 2 in october was beyond the pale. her whole family of 12 minus herself her brother and father all died inside one weekk in oct 1918. is it terrible to break the economy to save lives, surely it is....but what other option. if we dont stay locked up til vaccines, its gonna look alot like that nat geo or whatever movie yall keep posting.
  14. its strictly a reelection thing. i mean if we seriously reopen everything to those under 60, the spread will just continue and the curve wont flatten.
