  1. Looks like Cody/Dakota/Enigma has changed his name to Black Widow. No matter what the name, he is still an ignorant little boy who hates his fat, drunk daddy for divorcing his mother and leaving him. Poor little boy.
  2. Sunday the FDA issued emergency authorization of anti-malaria drug for coronavirus care. Hope this results in a big break through.
  3. Latest story from NEWSWEEK posted on MSN reads, "COVID-19 deaths in Wuhan may be in tens of thousands, data on cremations show". So what else did China hide from us about the coronavirus?
  4. But if they discover a medication that cures or reduces the severity of the disease in infected people that changes everything.
  5. It's becoming apparent to me that the coronavirus is going to spread no matter what we do. We may be able to slow the spread in a minor way, but I believe the real game changer will need to be the discovery of an existing medication or of a new medication that cures people who have been infected. That has to be our way out of this mess since a vaccine will probably not be available for a year.
  6. It appears the Democrat governor of Louisiana and mayor of New Orleans have repeated the incompetent mistakes made by the previous governor and mayor during Hurricane Katrina. During Katrina the mayor of New Orleans didn't evacuate the city and caused many people to die and the governor was completely incompetent in her response to the hurricane. Now the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana failed to cancel Mardi Gras where thousands of people from all over the U.S. and the world were packed into the hotels, restaurants, bars and streets of New Orleans. As a result, weeks later the city of New Orleans is now facing a severe outbreak of the coronavirus. I guess you just can't fix stupid.
  7. The video just confirmed that covid-19 is a much more difficult disease to fight and is more deadly than was the swine flu. The video also confirms that at least 12,500 people died from the swine flu in the U.S., although, I've heard other sources give a death figure of 17,000. I never heard any complaints from the news media about Obama's handling of the swine flu. So if only 10,000 or less die from the coronavirus in the U.S. compared to the 12,500 who died from the swine flu why would Trump be criticized, but Obama not criticized? Especially, when the video states that covid-19 is much more deadly and difficult to treat and control than the swine flu was.
  8. Trump has done a hell of a lot better job of handling the coronavirus than Barack Obama did in handling the swine flu.
  9. But Italy and Spain have done a great job of handling it, right? Why do I never hear any criticism of their leaders?
  10. I'm 74 years old and retired, so not much has changed in my life because of the coronavirus. I already spent almost all of my time at home and only ate at restaurants once or twice a week. I'm just a bit more careful to avoid close contact with people when I go grocery shopping.
  11. Did the 16 yo have any other medical condition previous to becoming infected with the coronavirus? And of the 40-60 yo who are critical how many of them had previous medical conditions?
  12. Why does it now make sense for people to individually isolate from each other to protect from becoming infected, but way back in December when the disease was first revealed in China it was considered racist to isolate China from the rest of the world? Political correctness and being "woke" has helped to spread the coronavirus around the world.
  13. Personally, I think the best way to deal with the virus would be to isolate the high risk group ( age 60+ and chronically ill) in their homes while allowing the rest of the population to resume normal life activities. That way you could protect the most vulnerable from the virus without totally shutting down the economy. It appears many people below the age of sixty who become infected have such mild symptoms that they don't even know they have the disease.
  14. Read the March17, 2020 article in the "Washington Free Beacon" entitled, "Media, Democrats Ran With False Claim Trump 'Disbanded' Pandemic Office".
  15. Trump was indecisive when he stopped travel from China to the U.S. at the end of January and then when he stopped travel from Europe to the U.S.?
