Coronavirus

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I know, right? Long a WalMart despiser, but I've found that travelers sometimes don't have the option of a Publix, Wegman's, or Vons. But mainly because for certain types of RV-specific supplies like toilet paper, tank chemicals, etc., that sometimes the choice is WalMart or Camping World, which is its own nightmare and has way higher prices. And sometimes they turn out to be a decent place to shop. Not that they aren't scum for their predatory marketing, small-town raping, and plantation style labour relations, but still.
I got your back.

A bar around here had a live band. The singer tested positive. Turns out a ton of people in the bar contracted the corona. Oops.

I've enjoyed time in a lot of bars over the years, from dingy neighbourhood pubs to fancy schmancy places, but I can't see why anybody would find it a good idea to go to an indoor bar right now. If up to 40% of covid carriers don't have noticeable symptoms for a while (or ever), you can be statistically confident that in any bar with a hundred people, you're going to have some infection. You can be equally confident that you won't be able to keep everyone 6 feet away, and that there will be loud talkers all around you. Not worth it.

I haven't been in a bar for some years now, so I don't really miss that environment. It would be nice, however, to be able to go to concerts, museums, lectures, and various other social events, without worrying I'll be contracting some potentially fatal malady.

And I can't imagine what is going to happen when colleges and universities open back up and the dorms become ground zero for a huge surge of infections.

You don't have to imagine. It's here.

Pandemic loneliness, unemployment, and social distancing limitations on shelters and rehabs have led to a large increase in opioid ODs. :(

Gee golly, I've got an idea. Let's get the president to play cheerleader and get some of the manufacturing companies to convert to making masks and other protective gear. I read once that FDR was able to get manufacturers to convert from whatever they were making to make war equipment.
Problem solved.

Except that, first trump and pense would have to die before President Pelosi could do anything.


If we only had a president.

Guest on Conan, paraphrased: Trump supporters that are killed by CV-19 should have their deaths ruled suicides. :o :lol:
