I'd establish a containment zone around that entire campus, like they did New Rochelle.

VA gov should just give the shelter in place order and be done with it. That would stop this stupid shiat.

Hope that works out for you guys...👍

Part of me wants to be mad, but you gotta know what you're getting into if you attend or work at Liberty U.

good work Jerry...I only wish there was a stupid tax so we could pay for all the extra medical cost you are creating for america

I'm grateful to have another self-sorting cohort of data for this giant experiment. I genuinely hope those that don't want to go back can figure out an alternative.

I hope they have enough track suits and sneakers.

A testament to their chutzpah and stupidity.

If it weren't for the indiscriminate transmission I'd say this would be a self correcting problem.

The only sad part about this is that these farks are probably gonna infect nurses and doctors when they end up in the hospital

Meanwhile, President of Harvard and his wife both tested positive for coronavirus. Obviously this means Trump is POTUS for life and Falwell is immune.

When that went down, and I saw the footage, I did think "Sweet Nikes.  Where'd they get those?"

And do it soon. Lynchburg is way too close to me even in non-emergency situations.

It was actually shut down?

Last I had heard it was a giant hoax and classes would continue as normal.

Religion might still be the number reason most people have died during the last few thousand years.

As I have said in other threads: "The problem with Darwinism is that it takes too long and there is the potential for a lot of innocent collateral damage".

He should be locked up for not only putting people at the University at risk, but the community around the University and especially health care workers and first responders.

Fine. Go back to school, you Bible humping simps. But I want the National Guard brought up to quarantine the exits. Nobody leaves for 3 months.

Either God will provide or every faculty member ends up dead. Let's have the chips fall where they may.

Is there any way for both the President of Harvard *and* Falwell to get the virus?

I mean, if we're clearing the shiat out of the horse stalls, best to clear them out of all the stalls.

The slow-motion atom bomb that is this pandemic is still in the process of exploding, and here we are getting people saying "the danger is over, let's all get back to normal."

Modern conservative religion should be purged from every corner of the earth.

Kids are dying to get into The Apostate and God's Vengeance 101 class.

If the risk was only to the idiots ignoring common sense I would have no sympathy. However this is willfully endangering not only the troglodytes at Liberty U but the common everyday Americans. These people should be forced to close by the Governor. VA has already canceled all public school classes for the remained of the school year I do not understand why universities ( real ones not Libertarian high) are still open even if they are using remote access.

When this is over there need to be criminal charges and fines for people and organizations that have willingly and knowingly endangered the rest of us.

Are there old people in the dorm? No.
Then what's the problem.

Would it be better to send them home on planes to their (older) parents?
 
2020-03-24 1:39:25 PM  
Maybe don't go to a university run by a complete and utter asshole, eh? Sucks that they're a danger to the people unfortunate enough to live near Liberty U. though.
 
2020-03-24 1:40:34 PM  
I'm going to give this thoughts and prayers....surely the opposite of what Falwell is thinking, but thoughts and prayers nonetheless.

I'm down with that. Lump them all together and keep them there together.

Well, we have to stay open to complete classes- students have licensing requirements (teachers, etc), still need specific classes for grad school, etc.

Keeping stuff open in person is beyond asinine.  We're in day 2 of classes restarting and I'm bored.  I have an open Zoom session for anyone needing class support and have gotten a grand total of one.  Folks are adapting.

I think the only thing falwell's trying to contain as a bankruptcy. I don't hear religious fervor about this what I hear is a man who has a universally that doesn't sound like its solvent
