    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I haven't been a huge fan, because I think there are some other drugs I have read of, which seem as promising if not more promising, but I do like the fact that everyone is trying to speed the process up (but its important that the drugs being used are safe...more than anything). If drugs are safe with minimal side-effects, than you can be a little more aggressive in trying to treat patients and see the effects. But the way the administration does everything is bad. Its use of family relationships and lack of independence is horrible (vs. a focus on independent experts and independent bids). But that shouldn't surprise anyone that voted for the guy because that is how he has operated in his own professional life.

    Its why they should have entirely focused on guaranteeing payrolls and providing deferrals for loans, etc. Just flat out suspensions of kicking items down the road until recovery hit. I've seen statistics that indicate the cost of that would have been less than what we are giving and while everything the government does with these large packages are going to help many, but also, there are going to be people who make out like bandits from the deals as well.
  3. Plus isn't the heat & humidity technically good (i.e., harder to spread the virus in those conditions). I am 110% for baseball and I think it isn't until the next sports seasons where we see games with fans (and I am 1000% okay with that). I think one of the big things that will be needed is the US to have really strong testing (across the nation...to the point where we have lots of tests and thus the professional athletes can be regularly tested for safer monitoring). My guess is certain coaches/players may need to follow more stringent guidelines. I don't care if the fans aren't there, getting live sports on will be a huge morale boost for the country.

    I don't defend one dumbass thing the president says. He is awful. That wasn't my point in this. I never voted for the guy because of how poor of a leader and for the specific scenario we are seeing now (a real crisis).

    And right now...I don't care about the past. Let all of that get handled after this disaster is done. The only thing that matters right here and right now is working together to get us as a country and a world through this crisis faster and as best we can. Coulda woulda shoulda's don't matter right now. Action and teamwork and proactive drive to fix things is flat out what matters. Partisism right now completely hinders the near term best interest of this country (whether you are a president, senator, or governor). The more we focus on the here and the now and what we are going to do to solve our real needs, the better off the entire country and world are. PERIOD. History will play itself out for all the mistakes after the fact.

    Yes he should. But that doesn't make an excuse for the others to behave shitty either. Just because one person acts worse doesn't allow everyone else to do the same (even if they are less powerful). It makes them all babies. If my kid is less bad than another kid, it doesn't mean I'm not going to take my kid aside and explain to them how their behavior isn't okay and how they need to act differently (regardless of how the other individual is behaving). We need to use this time for BOTH sides to clean their crooked crap up, period.

    He absolutely should. But so should the other side. Everyone needs to look in the mirror and step up and put the rest of the crap behind them. Lets not pretend that Governors shouldn't be great leaders too. Onus is one everyone to step up. EVERYONE.

    And Newsome was historically vicious to Trump. Fact is he bucked up and did something and the president responded kindly as well. Takes two to tango. It isn't like the president responded with, its about time you figured out how amazing I am. Instead, he actually flashed back and commended the job a Democratic governor was doing. Geeze - I wonder what would happen if more politicians behaved this way (Trump and all parties included). I guarantee we'd see a lot more progress than the current state of affairs.

    And like I said...someone needs to break the vicious cycle and stop PRETENDING that this is a one sided conversation. Both sides continue to do this...PERIOD. So thank god someone was finally a grownup and acted kindly and wow, the president acted kindly in response. Could we actually try to do this more? God that would be a fucking great outcome of this entire mess. None of us would allow our children to do what either side of the aisle does in this day and age. None of us. Politicians need a reminder of the golden rules and we need to start voting more that way (vs. focusing on absolutisms).

    No - It is just people need to ignore the politics. Who the F cares who started what. When people are doing, get over it. Trump playing nicely with California actually shows he can do it too. The problem is too many are completely using this for their own political gain and it pisses him off (and I'm not justifying him in the equation...and he should cut through it all and if he did he'd probably be a shoe-in for re-election). But it is why I have so much issue with the current state of affairs, such a vast minority look through things with anything other than their specific color classes. Everyone needs to shut the fuck up about politics and focus entirely on the serious matters at hand. Period. This is coming from someone who can't stand either party most of the time at this point. But I do think the fact that the president can play nice with the most liberal state in the union is a positive (and i hope it continues). As I said earlier, I really admire the job Newsome has done thus far during the crisis.

    I said it before and I hope this doesn't blow up in my face, but take notes at how Newsome (CA's governor) has stayed away from taking pot shots at the president and has instead focused on flat out working together with the federal government. Pissing contest be damn, none of it matters when discussing all of the lives at risk and through it, he has actually been relatively complimentary of the president (maybe because he's smart enough to recognize the fact that it is better to put differences aside and focus entirely on doing the best you can to tackle the situation at hand - period). Ignore the mudslinging (even if the pres wants to). Be the bigger and better person for the sake of your state and the country.

    Maybe has something to do with the fact that there aren't physicals really being done?

    I think end of April to end of May is probably a realistic timeframe. Gives right amount of hope but also allows flexibility to clamp down where necessary and drag on where appropriate.
