Just reading the posts on this thread, should humble everyone at the sheer power this virus, has over us.

It’s ability not only to kill you, but divide you.

I may be an asymptomatic carrier. I have never been tested.
Have you?


And you think all people who are asymptomatic are wearing masks?

With the mass protests, there are people out there with no
masks and no social distancing. What are the probabilities
that one person who is asymptomatic and wearing a mask
will change the infection rate in a crowd of thousands
not wearing a mask?

Saying "oh, maybe we should rethink things a bit." in a vacuum is not indicative of a pragmatic approach.


This is not a vacuum.

It's called working. You know the things that pays for taxes and creates goods and services to keep the whole machine rolling.

So you expect me to not work and just stay home and hope the government sends a check my way.?

No. But in the places I go in public, just about everyone is.

It must certainly is a vacuum. The data in that graph is almost meaningless on its own. It is a graph of one continues output verbally with no normalization of the many input variables that drive the output.

I have no expectations of you. But this is what you said:


People still have to work to make your food, deliver it to the grocery, ring it up, provide you with electricity, heating and cooling, phones, internet, etc.
These are what are commonly called "essential services." It would seem that if this is what you are providing, you would be working.

I can provide the testing data, if you wish.

They can choose to live and stay inside.


Tell that to the folks in nursing homes who "stayed put."

And contracted it and died.

Exactly. Contradiction, much? So staying home is not a feasible option, now is it?



Is your life more important than theirs?


Is your right to go out without a mask and put people at risk more important than their right to safely go out and not be infected selfish jerks?


Did I say I didn't wear a mask?


Did I say you said you didn't? It was posed as a question.

Care to address the rest of the post?


People in nursing homes do catch it. I think the workers should have to live in the nursing home until this is over. How else would you keep the workers from brining it in at some point. It's just a matter of time.

I am working. I have a manufacturing company. We make some products considered essential.

All jobs are essential or society breaks down. Government's need revenue, businesses need revenue. It's just how it is.

I think the president should not risk his health by attending rallies. He is in a high risk group, after all.

But it's his life so if he dies it was the consequence of his choice.

I like the guy and hope he doesn't get sick or die, but what's he going to do sit in the basement of the white house and hope for the best? Gotta do Earth those voters.

Maybe we should lock in people over 70 and have food delivered to them.

So what are you going on about. We are both working, both living, both wearing masks.

What's the difference?

I'm going on about the fact that you seem to think that what others do (not you, of course) is their own business and theirs alone.

Lol. If a person is over 70 and wants to take on the risk what's the problem?. I meant if they are worried about dying they should stay home. Be locked up, have the government deliver them their necessities.

It is their business, if you are worried about dropping dead then stay home.

I wear a mask when I am in public to put people at ease same thing with the six foot.

If they stay home then they are safe.. what's the problem with that?
