"locking down society was a bone-headed policy decision so devastating to society that historians may judge it as the all-time worst decision ever made."
I agree with all of this but I’m sure it’s mainly faulty info for one reason or another.
I dunno, I can think of a few pretty bad decisions in US history:
Slavery
Segregation
Southern Secession
Prohibition

But yea sure this one is the worst.
Won't argue that. We've had some doozies over the years for sure.

It'll be interesting to see just how bad of a decision it was. :wink:

Some good news on the COVID front:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/health ... li=BBnb7Kz
Trial results announced on Tuesday showed dexamethasone, which is used to reduce inflammation in other diseases such as arthritis, reduced death rates by around a third among the most severely ill of COVID-19 patients admitted to hospital.

Coronavirus is now the fourth biggest killer of Americans:
1) Civil War
2) WWII
3) Spanish flu
4) Coronavirus
5) WWI

I think you can add not telling anyone about the Spanish Flu can be added to bad decision. Also, add pretending that coronavirus wouldn't come to America and that it would be gone by April, then it'd be gone by summer.

Fourth biggest killer compared to what? Just those wars you cited?

I'd ask you why you used only those wars as a comparison but obviously I already know the answer. :lol:

The ol' Spanish Flu War of 1918! :lol:

Coronavirus, like Spanish Flu and a war, is an event, not (hopefully) a perpetual disease, so I suppose that's why it's categorized as such.

Ok that's what I thought. Was curious why we wouldn't compare it to other illnesses that will kill far more people? But I totally get that won't fit the narrative and I can appreciate that. But you'll have to excuse me if I'm just not very scared, and the fact that a virus has killed more people than some wars doesn't do much for me.

Wonder why people don't compare other forms of death to the Civil War and WWII? :-k

Probably because they're perpetual. Cancer, flu, pneumonia are around all the time in some form or another. Wars, pandemics have endings.

I'm with ya on not being scared. I'd get scared if I was being put in ICU with coronavirus (or any other malady) or if my car was careening down a ditch or if someone was holding a gun to my head. Not scared sitting around here in Montana with our low numbers and deaths.

The liberal left media absolutely blows me away with their narrative. Cohen tries to make Trump the scapegoat for the pandemic, yet numerous Dem leaders said Trump was overreacting when he banned travel with China. Biden called him xenophobic and a fear mongerer. Pelosi invited people to Chinatown and Gov Cuomo stayed NYC was open for business in defiance to Trumps warnings.

Thanks for asking! Trump does stuff like this daily, you had to go back two months to retrieve this story. How confident would I be? Immeasurably more confident than I am in Trump. Even if I'm not very confident in Biden, I'm still light years more confident in him than Trump. But I'm very confident in Biden and the people that he'll surround himself with (and actually listen to). I'm not confident in Trump to do anything, mainly because he rarely listens to the people around him and when he does, it's because they practically had to hold him down and force him to. That's just the facts of the matter. Call it TTS = Trump Truth Syndrome. \:D/ \:D/

Trump can't lift a glass of water up to his mouth with one hand and could barely negotiate a ramp that Biden has been seen running on. He's neither mentally, nor physically fit to command.

Like another post said. You deflect. Turn the narrative to Trump because Sleepy Joe is such a bad candidate. We all get it. You have an agenda.

:lol: :lol: Not hating on Trump, just pointing out what a complete idiot his is, that he makes Joe Biden look like a nuclear physicist. I've been going along with your Sleepy Joe stuff, but as bad as he looks, he looks fantastic standing next to Shuffles the Clown. Trump made Biden look like Usain Bolt when he was shuffling down that ramp. \:D/ \:D/

It's true. That bad Trump should have learned from the rioters, as none of the pre-testing showed any positives for those events.

45 is a pathological liar and a carnival huckster. I will believe anyone off the street will tell more truth than him.

I'm only surprised that CNN actually ran this story.

Study finds hydroxychloroquine helped coronavirus patients survive better
https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/02/health/h ... index.html
(CNN)A surprising new study found that the controversial antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine helped patients better survive in the hospital.

A team at Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan said Thursday its study of 2,541 hospitalized patients found that those given hydroxychloroquine were much less likely to die.

Dr. Marcus Zervos, division head of infectious disease for Henry Ford Health System, said 26% of those not given hydroxychloroquine died, compared to 13% of those who got the drug. The team looked back at everyone treated in the hospital system since the first patient in March...
