I'm watching Doug Ford go absolutely nuts on people who are not social distancing. I always thought of him as our tRump, but fortunately they are miles apart on how to deal with COVID.

The virus will just be getting going, and multiplying exponentially every minute of every day. Nothing will stop it, given how sporadic testing remains.

We're gonna race past Italy and China combined within 2 weeks, with no end in sight.

"WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF,"

If a new way of doing society is the cure, the cure isn't worse than the issue. Damn idiots. All of you gripping on to the old way of last months way of life. F that.  Let's end ownership of Real Estate. Get basic income for all. And everyone should be able to buy medicare. And let's all wave Good bye to 1950s way of thinking. Jesus Christ on a Ritz cracker. WTH. The 50s wasn't all that anyway. Fark.

After decades of obesity and stimulants, it's now the only way he can get sexually aroused. Somewhere, deep under his ill-fitted suit and folds of fat, his seminal vesicles are swollen like engorged ticks, and every second that he's without a rally he feels the painful throbbing of a pressure that he has no way to release. When he wakes up in the morning, he feels it. It's his last sensation as he drifts off into his nightly ambien-induced coma.

And within another week, he'll be ready to kill us all just to get that half-teaspoon of fluid out of him.

It wouldn't be a bad thing. Well, YES, it would, but it would also likely be the magic bullet that penetrates the adamandium alloy skulls of his cult. Because if he were to revoke or reduce social distancing 4/1, and they spend the rest of the month, and May, and June, and perhaps even July or August watching bodies stacked like cordwood on the tee vee, and having the virus take Memaw and Pepaw and Mamma and Daddy, and maybe even a few of the youngun's, too, then maybe-juuuuuuusssssstttt maybe-they won't fall for the gaslighting and the "fake news" bullshiat when he tries to disavow his own stupidity and ask them for their votes again.

This is where it's important to know who your community leaders are, where science matters, and getting to the core of your values.

There will be a major societal shift happening. I hope and expect it's for the better, I have to fight the rotted part of my heart off to remain in the optimism of how this will turn out.

In 2016, voters over 65 were most likely to vote for Trump, 53% to 44%, and made up 27% of the electorate.
https://www.people-press.org/2018/08/0​9/an-examination-of-the-2016-electorat​e-based-on-validated-voters/#demograph​ic-and-political-profiles-of-clinton-a​nd-trump-voters

COVID-19 disproportionately affects elderly smokers.  If one overlays a map of smoking rates in the US with the 2016 election results, the 12 most at-risk states all voted for Trump, as did all but 4 of the 30 states with the highest smoking rates (exceptions are Nevada, Maine, Oregon, and Delaware).  These states also have the lowest number of doctors per capita.

Can we all agree we'd like to not see 1.5 million Americans die (assuming 50% infection rate and 1% mortality) from Coronavirus during an election year?  Or do we need to drive it further home that it would disproportionately kill Republican voters and ruin Trump's reelection chances worse than the DJIA being 40% down from it's most recent high?

Myself, I want to go out, hang with friends, enjoy my retirement. So I can understand everyone's discomfort with staying home, sheltering in place. Even Trump could be feeling the same.

However, I know intellectually going out carries great risk to myself and my friends. So I stay put and endure it. Trump needs to chill, like we all need to do, and focus on things we can influence.

Unfortunately, Trump is President now and isn't dealing with the stress and disruption at all well. So Trump may really screw up more and kill a lot of people.

I donor know, these college kids are being smart.  The older generations have screwed them over pretty hard, economically and ecologically.  They are unlikely to get very sick from this.  It is probably in their own enlightened self interest to spread this disease far and wide.  A big die off of boomers will pay off for them in the long run.

From what I've observed, the millennials are being quite responsible and the boomers (who are most at risk) are acting like nothing is going on. All of my kids have been working from home (or laid off because his restaurant closed) for weeks. None of them are out partying. The idiots in the Spring Break videos are not millennials.
