She's lying, plain and simple. Nobody tells a hospital staff that no matter what a person dies from, mark down covid related death.

Nonsense. If true, take away all those licenses and shut down the hospital immediately.

Exactly, they didn't know. They had orders to label everything a COVID 19 death. Now, you're getting the point FD. laugh

"Which...credible source?"

A personal contact. Not that it matters. Anything other than the Media crap, you guys dismiss. Doesn't that sound like brainwashing?

John smile


Not true for me. The media is not trustworthy. They come on TV with their "OMG!" voice and try to scare and anger us into listening to whatever they have to say. Everything is politicized and agenda biased. Some things less than others. I have no doubt that JHU is agenda biased but probably much less than Rachet Madcow or Alex Jones.

No, FD, 89,908 corona death total in USA is the lie. There's probably around 40 - 50 thousand deaths like any other flu year.

I have a friend who is an anchor in Pennsylvania, he doesn't try to scare you nor the station trying to scare you. They do their job, read the news.

I agree the production is designed to draw you in, and they love snow storms and events like this cause it boasts ratings.

He doesn't work for republicans...fox, or dems, CNN, those are tv shows not news.

John so it's not 89,000, but 50, 000, and your reason for this number is?????

You want it to be that number????

Donald Trump, it you don't agree vote Biden instead.:

Donald Trump: I’ve never seen death like this. I’ve never personally experienced anything like it. And they talk about the flu and all of that. Well, I’ve known people that had the flu all my life. I was lucky I never had the flu. Then I came here, they want to give a flu shot. And I say, “I don’t want a flu shot.” But they have to give it. But you know what? I’ve known people that had the flu all of my life, nobody ever died. I never had a friend, he had the flu and he died.

Donald Trump: (05:34)
I’ve lost three friends. One, a very good friend, a very successful man, New York guy, employed a lot of people that were all crying over his death. Stanley Chera. He went to the hospital, he calls me up. He goes, “I tested positive.” I said, “Well, what are you going to do?” He said, “I’m going to the hospital. I’ll call you tomorrow.” He didn’t call. I call the hospital, he’s in a coma. Now, I know a lot of people that had the flu, they were never in a coma.

Donald Trump: (05:59)
This is a very horrible thing we’re fighting. But with all of that said, we’ve learned a lot about it. It infects older people. If you have any problem, heart, diabetes, even a little weak heart, a little diabetes, this thing is vicious. It can take you out and it can take you out very strongly. But, children do very well. Young children do better than teens.

Well guys, I'm signing off on this thread. Not that's it's not fun, or good for quarantining, and all thaf. But I'm getting ready to download toontracks ezbass on Tuesday when it comes out, and I'm gonna spend time figuring out how the he'll to use it. I loved their drums, wasn't crazy about their piano because to get the feel you need for your song, you'd probably need every add on pack they make which are 39-59 bucks each probably 5 or six in every genre. Then you might still it have your feel

Hoping the bass will be easier to edit.

Was the lockdown longer and more severe than it really had to be -- probably, but at least there is one bright spot: reduced pollution due to cars and other things.

This is really "anecdotal" evidence so take it with a grain a salt. I have seen some pics where the visible air quality was the same before and after even though the # pollutants in air was reduced. But I have to ask, do we really have to go back completely to those levels of pollution?

Google: "pollution before and after covid lockdown" I believe the below is before and after in India.

They interviewed some woman on 60 Minutes the other night and showed New Delhi India before and after the shutdown. And the change was remarkable

Personally, my instincts are that they shut down was just about right.

Can't believe the numbers anyway. They're all lyin' B's. Dr. Fauci recently came out and said that masks will help keep a person from catching the virus. In the beginning he said it wouldn't protect you much. Now he says, he only said that in the beginning to keep people from buying them all up, because the hospitals needed them. Caught in a lie once, you can never be trusted again. Liar, liar, face on fire! Dr. House says "everyone lies". And yet, the sheep still believe...

Well they also thought it was transmitted on surfaces, not so much any more.

I know they used to say masks didn't work, now they do.

It's a novel virus we don't know all about it.

I think the numbers are real, especially when you don't see it on news any more.

What I do know is were doing well in ny and nj but we had a long fight to get to this point. Texas Arizona and Florida didn't take it as seriously

Just stay where you are don't come visiting, we don't want it back

You know what happened the other day? I was in stop n shop, guy has his mask on but not covering his mouth he coughs and I felt two drops one on my forehead and one in my arm. I al most lost it. He was a black guy so I didn't want a racial incident, I wanted to lay into him. For some reason I didnt do anything, he wasn't intimidating, I coulda kicked his azz.

But I gave him a stare down and he actually bowed his head he knew what happened.

Grabbed the moist toiletries and rubbed my forehead and arm. But that's a surefire way to get it

Trump is making people sign waivers to go see him, he obviously knows it's a possibilty

Yes Fde. Remember the days when someone sneezed and the response was "God bless you"? Now people want to kill you when you sneeze. Everything's distorted these days.

Well I certainly wasn't saying God bless you not when he has a mask on and doesn't have it on covering his mouth

I still say God bless you when people sneeze, but even if you don't care about yourself you have to think about people who don't want it

I don't want people smoking around me either there are laws for that one

My wife's best friend of 30 years thinks (thought) that the virus was a hoax. Sent out all the supporting memes etc.
This morning she texted my wife that she tested positive.
Her husband is also showing symptoms.

You made the bet I didn't lol. I think I did take a break from this thread, I did spend the first few days with ezbass, looks like a complete win for me....

You won't see the grand scale stuff I those states cause we'll end up giving them the help they need. God knows how many ventilators New York has, and would probably ship to Florida as well as man power

But it does mean a second wave could happen. I think we're all including the media a little too secure. But I suggest Texas Arizona and Florida lock down. While we have a great summer!

If you are not a MEDIC, a SCIENTIST, or a FRONT LINE CARER, then please don't comment.

Just stay on your social media and construct your own misguided theories.

You made an assertion/proclamation. I bet against it. I knew that you could not possibly help yourself and not post to this thread again.
You lost and owe me a bazillion dollars.

Lol John, in fact people DO believe what they want. Some people worship the sun too, and somebody is there to support it

I know dead people from covid19 it kills. Not everybody, mostly nobody. But it does kill some and in an unpredictable and scary way.

Some won't believe it until somebody they know dies

Nobody's forced to believe but denying it does nobody good either. Im Not scared of it never have been, but I dont think it's unreasonable to respect the threat.

Not sure who the expert is in that video john. By the sound of the narrator's voice, it sounds like a real bogus report. Talking all quiet so to pretend it's secret information lol. he's a clown. But I still like you John.

Even if there was anything to that video, NY is not the problem any more, Ariz Texas and Florida are, three of the biggest denier states.

It's simple try to stop the spead, it will stop. Dont and it won't go away easy

I googled Erin Marie Olszewski a couple of weeks ago when the video first came out and one of the first links about her was from InfoWars. Whether or not what she reports is accurate or not, InfoWars is about the worst association you can have. Those were the guys (alex jones) that said the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting was staged and then countless "americans" harassed the poor parents for years. Even though these provocateurs can get it right sometimes, you are judged by the folks you associate with.

Edit: I guess you changed the link!!!

Anecdotal...
My wife's 65 year old friend of 30 years was diagnosed with this yesterday. Her husband was diagnosed with it this morning

I am finishing up a house and the electrician needs to order a special breaker in order to get his final inspection. I called them this morning and asked him what the holdup was and his supply house is shut down because two employees tested positive.

This virus is no longer a television event for me.

Before I get started... I thought I'd better ask about Roy Cooper. I read the first page of this thread, was amazed at Mark Kaufman's informative post. So much water has gone over the dam since this thread began but I am amazed at how opinions, theories, scientists seem to vary all over the map. I don't know what to believe any more. I do wear a mask when we go to Wal-Mart to buy our groceries each week and pay attention to the social distancing recommended. Other than that, not many stores or restaurants are open... but people are so tired of not being able to go to church, have a sit-down meal at a favorite restaurant... or see our beloved elders in nursing homes or hospitals.

I am reminded of when the Twin Towers were brought down... everything changed involving airline travel and it has not been the same since. It was a good move but sure makes me glad I don't have to fly commercially anymore. Are we going to have the same experience with this Pandemic? Masks forever? Hopefully not!

Now that time has past and more information is available on a world-wide basis, it is possible for an ordinary citizen to gather and compare information on those countries that ignored the Corona Virus while we were stuck at home having to watch extremely bad television... or find ways to keep from going bonkers.

In this small county (second smallest in Texas) we have had only five cases and these are fairly recent... and at this time, no deaths. They are home-quarantined as far as has been reported to date.

I'm hoping all the Nation's impacted by this Virus will demand their Scientific and Medical Organizations will quickly come up with a preventative... if not a cure for this unseen enemy.

Best wishes and good luck to all of you. Stay safe if you can.

----Dave

The woman who my wife knows uploaded pics to her instagram page showing her out to dinner with about 10 other women at a single table. About a week later she and her husband tested positive.

Cause and effect? Dunno.

Be careful about restaurants for a while.

It is interesting to see how other countries compare in the Covid 19 Pandemic statistics. A site called Covid 19 shows most of what we need to know. The list is long... and sadly, we are number one here in the "States." What we don't know is if we are not hearing accurate numbers from elsewhere, or if they are manipulating the facts. China (where it all began) is so far down the list... it is not believable. Brazil is number two at about half our number of deaths when I checked the list last.

I'm ready for this stuff to find another planet to inhabit!

Stay well, keep safe... and keep writing, everyone. ----Dave

My wife's best friend was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon.
Blood oxygen was 89 at admission. Diagnosis was "covid lung."

This virus is not a hoax. It was, in fact, being contained and if it had been left to run its course from the outset, the deaths would have reached the millions. It is hard to understand why people are denying the obviousness of that.

And I am not all freaked out and hid out under my bed...but a threat is a threat.
The people who jambed the streets to riot and protest were reckless fools and the people who are going to pile into the Trump rally in Tulsa are inexplicable reckless fools. All of them are playing the odds and some will lose the bet. The stakes may be their life or the life of some innocent that they infect.

Yeah and blaming it on testing is akin to saying that weighing people makes more people get fat, or checking blood pressure makes more people have high blood pressure.

The rally is very scary and makes no sense.

4 k New cases in Floruda, 40 deaths, that's about the same numbers we had during the peak. https://www.winknews.com/2020/06/20...than-4000-new-cases-reported-in-florida/

Facts.

Hospitalizations, admissions to ICU and deaths are what I watch.

Martin, do you have a link that shows that for the US -- I can't seem to find that data easily -- only cases and death. I use worldometer and hopkins sites.

This one seems reliable and can be filtered by individual states.
It shows deaths, testing, hospital and ICU beds used as well as current capacity.
it is very interactive, float your cursive over the various graphs and it will detail the information.

I still think positive tests is the most important, when 4k people test positive overnight, and zero are supposed to have it, that's pretty telling. Deaths and hospitalizations are just random.

Hey All!

I signed back in for a moments to post just a coupla comments that are facts.

Fact 1: Fdemetrio & I have had one or two or 387(but who's counting) tussles over our years here...So it's obvious that we'll never be BFF's....But that doesn't mean that I won't stand in his corner when life & death are, literally, on the line!

Fact 2: What Niteshift said a few posts up!!! Heya Geoff:-), I managed to break a law in 37 of the 50 States before this virus thingie limited my travel....OK, that last part ain't completely true:-)

Fact 3: Here is a copy & paste of what I wrote on my FB page a little over a month ago:

What's on my mind? Regarding anyone who refuses to wear a mask:

Speaking strictly for myself, I really wouldn't mind getting and dying of Covid19...Lemme 'Splain...I've had an adventurous life, have a strong Faith in God, and am heavily insured, so I don't hafta worry about leaving any loved ones destitute....
And to be brutally honest, I wouldn't mind leaving this [naughty word removed]-hole world behind, because I don’t fear the next Adventure....

HOWEVER!!!!!! If I didn't wear a mask, and infected someone else through my carelessness, and THEY died because of me, then that would make me a murderer! Not only would my conscience nag at me for that, but that someone who I infected might not be as "ready to go" as I am!!!!

Over the years of my life, I have broken 9 of the 10 Commandments, so I am obviously not a saint…Duh! But the ONE Commandment that I will never break is number 6: Thou shalt not kill.
I will gladly leave my bucket list of breaking all of the 10 Commandments incomplete…9 out of 10 ain’t bad!.....And THAT is why I wear a mask…

P.S....My "Home church" is 300 miles away, up in DC, while I've lived in NC for the last decade....I've driven up to that area, on long weekends, as often as I could...To play some musical gigs and gather at friends houses....My Home church is now doing Sunday Services via "Zoom".....It is really KEWL!!!!.....So don't no one try to pull the "We can't even go to church together card" outta their pocket!!!!

P.S.....This is how myself and a few friends and more than a few JPR'ers have been entertaining our "Home-Quaran-Tuned" selves lately, on my FB Page, while keeping a sense of "We're all in this together"... It's a Youtube channel Thingie that we've created.... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPD4tZNUog1Ea9ZUyrS7PoQ/playlists

Deaths are random?
Deaths are final and certain.
Tests are more random.

In case of corona yes deaths are random. A 103 year old can walk out of the hospital ok, whereas a 25 year old can die.

The next 1000 people that test positive can all survive, then the next batch of thousand 100 might die. That's what I mean by random, no way to know how many will die, but there is a way to know how many have it...test

To quote trump " I keep telling my people slow the testing down".

When covid takes people, it appears to take them fairly quickly.
If someone dies testing positive for covid..then they died testing positive for covid.
If there are 120K dead people in the US who tested positive for covid, that is a certain statistic...regardless of whether they were 25 or 103.
If your point is that that 103 year old was going to die anyway and the 25 year old was not..the fact remains that they did die testing positive.

I don't smoke dope Fd, but if I did, I'd ask for some of yours. It must be potent. It has a profound effect on your ability to see the obvious when you light up. wink
