Republicans don't solve problems.  They consider every problem something that just needs better messaging, and millions of Americans are wiling to follow along  They are willing to believe that "blame China" or "New York had a lot of dead people" was an effective strategy for avoiding the economic fallout from a pandemic.

That's how we got this plan:

Well, it seems to be one of the sites actually reporting the state of the situation, not government propaganda.

So what exactly is biased or incorrect?  Other than laying the clusterfark that is the US squarely at the feet of the orange shiat flinging gibbon you have as a leader?

It's an opinion piece.  By design it's heavy on bias and light on meaningful information.

"The GOP doesn't have a plan" is fact, not an opinion. You've got all day to tell us what the plan is.


This is an opinion piece.  The reason this country is in so much trouble is that people like you cant tell the difference between that and news.  The entire piece was a guy ranting about how what's being done isn't working or isn't enough.  So by definition, there is a plan.  Not a good one, but there's a plan.  And again, since it's an opinion piece, it is full of bias and light on useful information.  Don't act like this opinion piece is actual fact.  You may agree with the opinion, but that doesn't make it true.

So what is the plan, ace?

You tell me.  What have we done and what are we doing?  Let's see if you can figure it out.

Nothing, and nothing.

Yay!

And this is why we are farked.  You pretend like you know what's going on, but you're clueless and there are millions more like you.  You totally got it, buddy.  We've done nothing at all.  We're not even testing people.  It's insanity.

Testing isn't a plan....

They havent done anything.

Desantis' plan was to contact trace and isolate...

But they havent even done that.

Outside of doctors telling people to stay home the state isn't even following up or enforcing it.

So they had a plan... they're just not following said plan.

Even the White House did.  It was a good plan, but the only states that are following it are blue.

So do you consider "not following the plan" as a plan?

You claim other people are dumb, but you consider testing a plan.

Testing isn't even done by the state.  It's not mandatory.  Nobody is making anyone do it.  They're not run by states, they're run by private corps and insurance has to pay for it.  There is nothing about testing that is part of the plan because if people decided on their own not to get tested the only people who would get tested would be people who were hospitalized.

If the private companies decided it was too costly or didn't want to do it any more those public testing places would close.

plan

noun
1.
a detailed proposal for doing or achieving something.

What are they trying to achieve by testing?  Oh wait, the state isn't achieving anything by testing.  Testing should be PART of the plan that involves many other things.  O ...


You're taking that way out of context.  I was replying to a dimwit who said we've done nothing at all and made a snide comment to illustrate how stupid that was.  Testing is part of the plan on a state level though.  Read your definition of plan again.  Where does it say it has to work, or be followed?  Success and plan are not the same thing.

You tell me.  What have we done and what are we doing?  Let's see if you can figure it out.

You mean nothing?  A plan implies that you are doing something.

Feds pushed it off on states to come up with a plan, some states stepped up and came up with a plan, and others did nothing.  They just opened up with no contact tracing and isolation policies and then when things started getting bad they blocked local municipalities from doing anything, or pushed the onus on local municipalities to do something.

That's not a plan, that's just letting the chips fall where they may.

It's working out so well for them.  It really is.  "Open up at all cost" is not a plan, that's just wishful thinking.


Wow.  Someone that actually pays attention.  That's the plan.  Like I said, just because it's not good doesn't mean it's not a plan.  Feds issue guidance and the states do what they want with it.  In theory it's not all that horrible.  In practice, in todays political climate, it's just not going to work.

dkulprit: FarkBucket18: dkulprit: So shutdowns or at least some attempt at slowing the spread IN THE US is bad because people may die in afghanistan and Africa?

When did the right start caring about those people?

Economic impact is going to happen either way, at least one is somewhat controlled.

People have a choice. If you believe the spread of Covid is so uncontrolled, you don't have to leave your house. Hell, I've reduced my chances of contracting a brain eating amoeba by not swimming in stagnant pools in the American South. You, too, have the choice even if others choose otherwise.

Lol.  Smart smart smart.

The leave everything open for the economy is working so well in florida, texas, and AZ.

Their economies are doing great with the opening back up and letting it run rampant.  Here in illinois who has taken a more measured approach is opening back up, people I know who were furloughed are mostly all back.  AND THE VIRUS ISNT OUT OF CONTROL.

I go out all the time.  I'm not afraid to do it at all. But that's because certain states took advantage of the stay at home orders and then did a controlled opening.

Just look at all the countries where the governments and the people worked together to stop the spread, almost all back to normal with minimal deaths, minimal impact on economy.

But you keep thinking just "open all the things!  Letting the virus run rampant will have no economic impact... at all."

The irony being even conservative economists think that plan is stupid and will do more long term damage than a controlled opening while minimizing spread of virus.  I guarantee the long term impact on the states that opened without controlling the spread are going to have longer term negative impacts on the economy than states that did a controlled slower opening.

The proof is already there, and the fact that you buy this bullshiat and don't care about how many people die just shows how much the conservatives don't really care about the people. It shows where the pri ...


I've barely left my house in six months ... I haven't contracted C19. 

Your risk being "out and about" is far more risky than my choices. The point is, you do have a choice. Everyone has a choice. 

But, you'll find that I'm not demanding you lock yourself in your house for the next six months or shaming you because your choices are actually far more risky than any behaviors I've heard of in a long time. I give you the latitude to do whatever it is you want so long as you're accepting of the risk you are putting yourself and others in. 

Me? I'll continue WFH the same way I've been WFH for the last 5 years.
