Re: Coronavirus

Now for why I came here: I am concerned that the CDC changed its recommendations on wearing masks due to political pressure rather than science. I've seen talking heads who had been pressing for this say the reason is that the information has changed. Specifically, they say we now know there can be ...

Re: Coronavirus

Watching Trump again. I just shake my head at the fact that ANYBODY would vote for that buffoon to be President of the United States. Very sad that we have a significant proportion of our population that would vote for somebody like that under ANY circumstances. Not a good sign for the future of the...

Re: Coronavirus

Perhaps I have missed this....why has the media continually added to the confirmed totals, but don't ever lower the numbers from those that have beat it or have died? I don't know but you can see that at the worldometer site. It's frequently updated but as of now it indicates that, in the United St...

They’re taken from worldometer, regional health districts, and state official releases. It’s been very predictive. Good afternoon, here are today's numbers....

Re: What is your Kryptonite?

Trump is not Kryptonite. He is a problem and he will pass. The problem with having enough people in the population so that we would elect someone like Trump will also pass. The mindset that supports Trump is losing over the long term. It's depressing to see what the situation is now. But it is the l...

Re: Coronavirus

And why does Trump have to start a press briefing on COVID-19 by saying we had the best economy we'd ever had beforehand when it's obviously not true? Why do that? Also, why keep saying that China is paying the United States because of tariffs when THAT is not true? I guess it's because about 45% of...

Watching the press conference and all the discussion of some unspecified set of models predicting 100,000 to 200,000 plus cases if mitigation strategies are applied. They also showed one output of another model that was specifically referenced and such that you can access the output on line. It's th...

Re: Legit Concerns or Whiny Petulence?

Otherwise: I don't think there is any doubt that our position with respect to world leadership has been diminished by virtue of having Trump as President. Now, we may be fine with that. One can argue that it's a good thing. But we've lost standing in terms of leadership.

Also he seized upon some modeling outputs to put himself in position to say he did a great job if anything less than 200,000 die in association with COVID-19. Smart move on his part, I guess.
