    Never dreamed I would walk into a ballot booth and the choices would be Joe Biden or Donald Trump.

    @manta I would not vote for Joe Biden even as a write-in for Prime Minister, King or whatever it is N.I. elects.

    Weird how hospitals are laying off nurses. You'd think a pandemic would require more nurses.

    The law of unintended consequences, like gravity, it will make its presence known.

    360,000,000 +/- million in this country
    1,000,000 tested positive
    54,000 dead allegedly from the virus
    54000/360000000 = .00015 = .01%

    More in "pandemic" affected areas. Vastly fewer in areas of so-called non-essential or "elective" procedures.

    I've got a friend who's a nurse and she's been furloughed for the past month. She's not in a hospital in the "critical" area of the hospital. So, she's "unnecessary" (surplus) labor, at the moment.

    Which is why numerous nurser/doctor types in less-affected states are heading to the "war zones" (ie, NYC) to assist in breaching the gaps. From some news reports I've heard, recently, some are making double (or even more) the customary salary for the stint. Supply and demand. Makes sense. Ideally, the opportunities would be so fluid for effective people to up and move temporarily to a new spot, if such employers would cover the full cost of the "double" housing, the trip, the cost differential in being in the new place, plus the "battle zone" bonuses, etc. To get the best staff they can.

    A relative of mine used to do nursing all over the world. Wherever the greatest need was. Made a small fortune doing so, in critical care. And saw numerous places of the world many have only seen in books.

    Still does not prove his premise is wrong, even if all he did was sweep the floor.

    Your opinion, not everyone's.

    Anything the Democrats could do? Who do you think is really behind trying to make Trump look bad? The Democrat lackies in the media can take things out of context or act like Trump was serious when he wasn't and you buy it hook, line and sinker.

    They do not need to do anything to make Trump look bad, he is doing it brilliantly all by himself. As for Tumps excuse he was being sarcastic, rubbish he was deadly serious no one is falling for that. ( Are they )

    The reason the media is going nuts over COVID is that it's disproportionally affecting those with AIDS...guess where most cases reside? Gee...same places that have the highest death tolls. It's why the Left Coast shut down almost immediately.

    Others worry because of the folks in Nursing Homes...
    altho they should be called Waiting For Death Warehouses...
    because that's what they really are.
    If you didn't say Goodbye when ya put Grandma in there...
    you don't even deserve a sign for being stupid.

    Basically it's reversing modern medicine...all the things we cured or slowed down
    over the last century are deadly as heck again if you have them and COVID.

    If you believe that Charles Darwin was right, don't complain about COVID.
    It is doing EXACTLY what it's supposed to be doing.

    If you are a Conservative Christian or a Muslim,
    it's singlehandedly wiping out HIV/AIDS patients...
    I.E. those who were having sex outside the bonds of marriage,
    and it may be some aspects of the Apocalypse,
    so for the most part, you have to root for it.

    And if you've got a real PITA Mother in Law...
    you're definitely rooting for it ;)

    Some might say...why am I so harsh??
    That one is easy.

    There millions of people in America that have a lower immune system due to medication nothing to do with AIDS. People that have had Transplants people with arthritis and numerous other conditions.

    Yep, another unsubstantiated missal from World Net Daily.

    In 2009-10 the flu killed 12,500 US residents. In about one month COVID 19 killed over 50,000 folks.

    Yep, i have Schmidt syndrome. AKA: Polyglandular autoimmune syndrome type 2. My adrenal glands and thyroid conked out decades ago, i'm diabetic; and the kidneys are functioning at 67 percent. This COVID 19 stuff would kill my butt graveyard dead. That's why i'm wearing a mask and gloves, while going out into public only when absolutely necessary. i go hog hunting and to my shooting range.

    BTW: COVID 19 is killing black folks disproportionately to their representation in the US population.

    THE year ’s at the spring,
    And day ’s at the morn;
    Morning ’s at seven;
    The hill-side ’s dew-pearl'd;
    The lark ’s on the wing;
    The snail ’s on the thorn;
    God ’s in His heaven—
    All ’s right with the world!:)

    Which will ultimately provide better care for all residents?

    Vibrant economy

    Or

    Depressed economy

    Hospitals in non-hot spots are laying off staff, how is that good for folks with underlying issues, such as my wife with sarcoidosis? My 90 year old mother? My sister in law with RA?

    Don't try to tell me I don't have "skin in the game!

    The water has been spilled, the milk is under the bridge. Open the damn economy up!
