For the US to archive herd immunity would result in 3-4 million dead Americans from covid-19 and rough guess of another 500k- 1m dead from denials of care. If that is what Donnie is advocating he should at least be honest with the numbers

he lamented "how the politicians and the media and the academic community and the scientific community have taken hold of this debate," and announced it's time to push on to herd immunity.

"It's just awful that the people who spend their lives studying epidemiology professionally, who are responsible for studying policy and the effects of these issues, the people we elect and pay to manage these problems, and those who's job it is to inform us about them have taken hold of this debate"


GET. farkED. ASSHOLE.

S&P index is still down a little under 10% YTD. Obviously, where an individual got in will dictate how good or bad the current market is for them, but as a relatively safe measure the YTD is as good as any.

FWIW, you'd be up about 3.5% if you bought in one year ago. That's not terrible, but only half the so-called 'historical annual return' and 1/10th the total return of the S&P last year.

There have been over 200+ general, small scale, strikes since March 15th, 2020. None of this has been covered in corporate owned national media

Someone here suggested having Marie Kondo yell, "Does this one spark joy?", have the crowd answer back, "No!", and then have her toss them in a woodchipper.  That makes me laugh in a scary, scary way.

How can the media claim to be objective when they give this unqualified asshole airtime without presenting the views of someone at the opposite end of the spectrum?  I demand that they host a debate between this guy and a hobo who lives in a cardboard box.  I say let the viewers decide whether to believe the rich unqualified opinion or the poor unqualified opinion, and they can only do that if you cover both sides.

I've read in several places that you can't get herd immunity without a vaccine.  So, his point is moot until then.

eurotrader: For the US to archive herd immunity would result in 3-4 million dead Americans from covid-19 and rough guess of another 500k- 1m dead from denials of care. If that is what Donnie is advocating he should at least be honest with the numbers


I've already heard that 3 million is less than 1% of the population, and should be considered an acceptable loss

The person who said that to me recently is pro-life.  She rationalizes it by the justification that most of those who die have already lived at least some life, and are better off than someone who never really lived  at all.  As a bonus, she's a senior citizen, yet doesn't think she's going to get it.

Bonus: she thinks incarcerated inmates should be forced to work at gunpoint as slaves in meatpacking plants and farms to continue producing food.

The mechanism of hers immunity was first noticed in the 1930s, when children in Baltimore had much lower-than-expected prevalence of measles.  Vaccinations for measles didn't start until the 1960s.

A lot of billionaires not because of liquid assets, but due investments, so if everyone were to tank the economy it would sink them too.  They might not be poor in any sense, but they wouldn't be nearly as rich anymore.

They would definitely feel it.  But it would be felt.

They're all that way. Pro-life is a misnomer for the anti-abortion movement. All you have to do is look at the infant and child mortality rates of the states with the most stringent abortion laws. They certainly don't care about you once you're out of the womb.

And did measles go away? No. Not until there was a vaccine.
