Yes remember all these elected officials suppressing our right and vote them out. It’s pretty nutty. It’s all an overreach but to try and suppress our freedom celebrations is to much. We should all march up to city hall and protest.

This is not about getting a beer at a bar, brother. This is about the owner of that bar who has poured his life and soul into a small business. The government has no right to shut that down, period.

How many millions of people has poverty killed over the last couple thousand years? The answer is millions. So we canít just trust people into poverty for something thatís killing literally less than 2 out of 1000.
It's killing 2 out of 1000 that get it. But even then it's almost all old people that already have issues. And a very high % of those would die anyway within a year.

So no one really knows.. Could be as low as 2 out of 5000 die from CV. Read into nursing homes. To sum up the turn over is 33-36% yearly in nursing homes. So to get the real death rate one needs to know how many people die in nursing homes each year and then this year. The difference is how many CV actually killed.

For some odd reason we never get real data like this though.

130,000 deaths. Can't even count all the people that are still sick ,weeks after it's run it's course.

We need better leadership during these times and we have a CLOWN for a President. We're not going to wish our way out of this. We shouldn't have rushed to reopen with the virus still raging. Now look where we are? Closing down again.

So what are you upset about?

Leadership? That clown is following the model of ďstates rightsĒ not your typical democratic move. We, at least me are for less government and more states rights. Typical democrat needs more and bigger government to tell them everything so viewing our current leader as a Clown is no surprise.

Opening up to soon? So I guess from someone who supports handouts and free money more than the overall economy being strong is a great question.

Are you still in Maryland?

Must suck to live life in fear.

I do not fear Covid-19 and wish we would open up. However, there is a greater chance of dying from Covid than a car crash as of latest numbers.

https://injuryfacts.nsc.org/home-and...united-states/

Another difference is when you are in a crash you are the only victim unless others involved. When the crash ends typical that is it. In rare cases a car crash can cause a chain reaction and in even rarer cases a family member traveling to the scene or hospital can be involved in a crash. EMS/Fire can also be involved in a crash traveling to the scene.

With Covid it is possible to show no or very little signs and yet spread the design to others that get sick or they pass it to even others that get sick and die. That is the problem with Covid is spreading it without knowing it and killing others. Kinda like leaving a gun in a car over night, it gets stolen and then used in a crime that kills someone. There is a argument that the person that left the gun in the car shares some of the blame.

I would hate to get Covid, pass it to my parents who then pass it to a church member that then dies.

Just my thoughts, it all sucks right now and I am concerned that this will grow over time and will kill lots of people in the next year or two world wide.

What if though, you're one of those unlucky people that don't die but, never fully recover.
What if you're just passing it along to your kids, friends, or your parents? Is getting a beer in a bar THAT important?

You have to understand that most of us are capable of weighing, and mitigating the risks of this virus like we do in every other aspect of life. Itís part of being a functional adult. Also, weíre not all scared of our own shadows. The regular world must be terrifying to you.

People depend on bars for their livelihoods too.

Freedom is wasted on those who donít know how to use it.

Wrong again. Or maybe the car crash analogy should be revised to "If you're under the age of 60"

Why do people refuse to see that COVID basically only kills those who are weak and have big underlying health issues? Are there any studies that show about how long these people would have lived if COVID didn't kill them?

So since you seem to be sooooo enlightened on how to fix the pandemic, what is YOUR suggestion since you think the President is fumbling it?

We will wait for your divine enlightenment.

I expect it will be the usual, all mouth and no substance.

I seem to recall that we DID lockdown for MONTHS and still had that many deaths....so apparently lockdowns don't work by your logic.

It’s my prediction that all of this will drag on until right before election time and they will try to shut everything down again. I believe it’s all a long drawn out plan to help push the mail in ballots

Most Democrats advice in the early stages of cv19 are a180 from what they are now. The president has handled it about as well as one could do in the political climate we are in. He is ****ed either way.
He has backed off on some of his early positions or at least softened up on them now because the reality of the virus and how deadly it is compared to how deadly it was portrayed early on.
He realizes some people are still going to believe the hype and he is trying to balance everything for everyone's different perspective on it the best he can.

The problem is the media is distorting the situation and flat out not even covering his news conferences to help keep the lie going until the election.

All of our county maintained beaches in Cameron County have been closed during this fiasco thanks to Judge Eddie Trevino. This includes close to 26 miles of beach as well as Boca Chica Beach. But, the city of South Padre Island said, not so fast our city maintained beaches will remain opened. So, the resulting outcome was large numbers of people in much smaller areas! Should have seen the SPI Beach on the July 4th weekend, it looked like spring break out there packed with so many people. Meanwhile, miles and miles of beach closed to to the public because "it's not safe." Insanity!

I'm certain the MSM and CNN will take this as fact and run with it just to inflate the numbers. Of course they will leave out the important part that it was just an error.
