I’m pretty sure I will be dead in a year, tops. I despise my career. And everything is now a total bust. More — I‘ve forever lost what little faith I once had in mankind.
I hear ya, but I suspect it's always been that way. The only difference now is that every politician's true colors are on full display as a result from this mess. They don't care about us (the people). But yes, the majority of politicians are corrupt. How is it that the average salary of a Congressman is $174,000 per year, yet, so many are millionaires? We pretty much live in an oligarchy. It's such a shame that our country is so divided, which is deliberate. Left or right, democrat or republican, etc. United, imagine what changes the people of this country could accomplish? It's only possible once people realize they are ALL being played.The garbage heap that now makes up American politics is pathetic. Yep — It’s a real pity, a real tragedy that COVID-19 didn’t simply wipe out every politician in DC. Every single damn one. Nobody would be missed by me. Not a single one.

Letting anyone ruin your day is like them handing you a 20 pound sack of poop. Sure you can carry it all day, and it will make your back hurt and your clothes smell. But you ultimately had the choice of not taking the sack in the first place. Let them carry their own poop. Don't take the sack.I'd miss you. I've always enjoyed your passion for collecting. Honestly, who cares if people have different ideas about things. No two people think alike on everything. At some point in life you just have to let go and decide that you aren't responsible for the world and just live the life that you want to and if you need to make changes to your life, do so where necessary. Blow off steam when you need to. Don't let the world beat you. Who cares what other people think! Don't let anyone else have control over your happiness.
yeah but its the blue states with all the problems and the most deaths. I'll happily remain in a red state.Texas is going to spike like hell In the coming weeks. Just wait. Yesterday was their deadliest day. So Today — they open. Yee-haw. Yippy Covid19-eye-ay, muthaf$%kers. Sigh... The sheer stupidity on display this week is profoundly depressing. So much needless and death. Whatever. You get what you elect. A lesson many Red States are going to learn the hard way. Oh well.
All of this is very true, and I don't have a good solution/answer to this problem. Obviously, the economy is in the toilet right now and a lot of people are out of work. On top of that, those that had health insurance probably had it through their jobs. So, if they're out of work - no insurance. It's horrible enough to be out of a job - but to not have health insurance on top of that is truly horrific. Hell, without insurance I don't know how people can even get tested for COVID-19 - unless they pay for this out of their pocket.I think we're at the point where we need to stop thinking we somehow have to choose between the economy and peoples' lives. As if our only options are staying locked down indefinitely or going back to normal overnight. We need a reasonable third option.
We also have to stop treating Covid 19 like it's the only threat to our health we're facing. An economic crash would also be a giant health crisis. People are losing their jobs which means they'll likely lose their health care. If the shutdown goes on too long, people could start losing their houses and getting evicted from their apartments. You can't stay at home without a home. I feel like no one's really talking about this situation in these terms. No one's really addressing the impact an economic depression would have on our health.

This place is therapy for me. I go to Star Wars whenever I need a little escape.So I know this may be a bit personal, but I've never been super shy with sharing some of my person life stuff...and I just really need to vent.
my take? it's basically the moment when you put somebody else's well being above your own.Then you have to ask, "what is love?"
You're not brainstorming. You're promoting conspiracy theories. Just be honest. If you believe it, at least have the conviction to say it. This crap has been around since the internet became widely available and even before that. FEMA death camps, new world order, illuminati, and on and on. Man, they sure are taking their time. I've been hearing these conspiracies for at least 30 years.Wouldn't it be horrible if the extreme numbers of infections and deaths were not true? the number being blown out of proportions for the fear factor and manipulations of the masses. Has anyone questioned Johns Hopkins about the statistics? you see their name at the bottom of the epidemic statistic chart on the news. It would be bad if that school was being politically "motivated" to put out extreme numbers of infections and death news. what if a lot of the deaths were not virus related? Some of the actions taking place to enforce the extreme "protection agenda" are on the verge of sounding like the rise of a "police state"(I am not against law enforcement) political agendas actions taken to "make people safe". Wonder if this went on too long and became the"new normal"? this country would cease to exist as the United States and my ancestor would rise from his grave in anger! Please don't think I'm trying to be negative, just brainstorming.
But that's not what he's saying. He's saying they are purposely lying about the numbers to make us scared so they can control the sheeple, and eventually put us in a police state. Funny. There's one side who would argue they under report as to not scare and another that says they over report to scare. There are always conflicting conspiracy theories that have their proponents calling each other government shills and sheep.if anything I think the numbers are being under-represented, because a lot of people (for one reason or another) are just not getting tested. either they are asymptomatic carriers (who don't even know they have it) -- or they are just experiencing mild symptoms and are self-isolating/recovering on their own. ie: the numbers we see are "confirmed" cases, but I suspect there are many many more that are unreported/UNconfirmed. and yes,on the whole, this might cause an exaggeration of the actual mortality rates -- like for example: if we learned there were actually 2x more cases than were officially reported.. then the 'actual' mortality rate would be half of the 'reported' mortality rate (that kind of thing) -- but at the end of the day this 'exaggeration-of-the-mortality-rate' doesn't constitute a conspiracy. it's just caused by a lack of testing (aka: many many cases, with positive outcomes, going unreported/unconfirmed) so the total number of cases is actually under-represented, compared to the total number of deaths
