  1. I think people realize it’s a problem. It’s just some people view things differently. Some people are we are going to save anyone and everyone we can. Some people are I’m not going to wreck 50% of people’s lives to help the 1%. The business owner probably views things the second way. Just how people are, and whatever their view point is, they believe the other view point is wrong.
  2. I may be 100% wrong. I thought I heard they are starting some chloroquine type treatments in NYC. Maybe even along lines of what these two doctors have suggested. If they have, and this is as effective as they claim we should start seeing a leveling off or decline in 10 days I would imagine. Obviously this isn’t a cure, but if 60-70% successful it could hold humanity over until a full vaccine is created.
  3. This would be the smart thing to do. Hopefully Washington learns from this.
  4. H1N1 did effect over 16million Americans alone. We are currently under 100k and obviously still climbing and at a very good rate. However let’s pretend this flattening of the curb successful and we get out of this with 10 million effected. It then could be argued that this should be done every time. I certainly hope not, and truly hope this is just a very rare occurrence. Was just asking the theoretical question to gauge what people thought. It seems most think this is a one and done situation.
  5. I get what your saying. However nothing has been done like this ever in the past. As you stated. Sometimes once a precedent is set people follow from there on out. Thats why I’m saying next time a Ebola, H1N1, SARS comes along because we all know something will. Does this become standard operating procedure?
  6. After we conquer this infection what’s down the line? Is this the new protocol? These things pop up every 5-7 years. Can we honestly afford $1.5 Trillion stimulus over and over?
  7. I simply believe strongly in the ability of everything to adapt. Climate change is gradually happening. They’ve been aware now for 50+ years. We are making steps to try and improve. Nothing is going to happen over night. So I can live my life worried about it, or I can do my small part to not add to the problem and have faith we will figure it out. Either way by the time we are all gone, no one will fully know if they were right or wrong on their opinion in reguards to CC.
  8. Well climate change has been happening all the time for 100 of millions years. Do I believe humans can accelerate Climate Change absolutely. However I also believe Humans, wildlife, the planet are incredibly gifted at adapting. We will survive, we will innovate, maybe we even relocate if waters got to high. The science behind climate change is undeniable. The hysteria and omg we will never survive is overblown on that front as well. At least imo which means nothing, and has no effect on you besides thinking I’m and idiot.
  9. This was an extreme hypothetical. Of course there would be deaths in all age brackets. Just very top heavy. I was merely pointing out in the insanely most extreme possible scenario. Humans survive, society goes on. Fear, is going to cause a lot of buisness to go under. People to lose a huge chunk of their retirement, causing them to work longer. All because of fear over a pandemic that humans have conquered over and over
  10. From a strictly non emotional standpoint the hysteria is over blown. In the absolute worst case scenario every single person gets this infection. 98% of us have to pop some ibuprofen, feel crappy for a week and move on. The ones almost out the door pass along sooner. We lose 40% of our population 70 years and older. Social Security is saved. Now this is a 10000% Insensitive way to look at it. No one wants to see any death. However society would still go on. This isn’t taking out the young, or the working class. It’s taking out the no long contributing. IMO people acting irrational, closing down buisness’s, tanking the stock market. Going to cause thousands of people to go bankrupt is unfortunate. Life should have went on like normal like it did for other outbreaks and society would have been fine without devastating economic impacts.
  11. It seems to me Gable really only cares about freestyle. I think Folk, and UofM is just a free degree to him. His talent level is greater than anyone else. However Parris is close enough that his passion and drive couple with close athleticism may be enough to clip Gable this year, or in the years to come. In freestyle give me Gable, but folk style is a coin flip imo.
  12. I will take Steveson, 8-5. Parris is undoubtably athletic, but Gable is a notch above. Parris aggressiveness will get him a take down of Steveson. Which will be an accomplishment in its own right. However his aggressiveness will get him taken down 3 times or so when Gable counters. Like others have stated, if your going to beat Gable you need him to gas and take advantage.
