Is everyone in denial?


Recommended Posts

I reckon the NFL season will still occur but there will be many games without fans, I know Miami said they can hold 15k though what would be the point in having an empty stadium with some fans it? It will probably cost more in catering, security, ticket attendants etc than it will for the monetary gain of selling 15k in ticket sales. 

I reckon we will see a few games in closed doors but televised, they could cover the seats with tarp that has advertising on it ...you know if money is involved the NFL are all over it. I reckon they could cover the stands with advertising of sponsors so to the fan at home they do not notice large amounts of empty seats but just focus their attention on the field.

I'm done. Starting back up with my hookers this weekend.  Life must go on.

The mentality that we can just quarantine for the rest of our lives is ridiculous. Things have to be done wisely but this economy has to re-start

If people think the NFL (owners/players) is going to leave all that TV money on the table, they're crazy

I guess the French aren't paying any attention to the patients for which they have prescribed large amount of prescription for hydroxychloroquine...

Yes, Trump (like all politicians) does say some dumb things, absolutely no denying that. As for hydroxycholorquine I know two actual people who had corona and they were fine soon after being prescribed hydroxycholorquine in late March early April (two people is statistically insignificant yet they are fine now after taking hydroxychloroquine). As for clinical testing it goes to who do you trust? I see plenty of drugs on TV that have been tested clinically yet they, don't work very well, have nasty side effects, and were approved as effective and safe... For instance an antidepressant that may cause you erectile dysfunction or to think about suicidal thoughts (I guess clinical testing doesn't always mean what we'd like it to).

Wearing masks particularly homemade masks does very little. At best they stop you from spitting on someone when you cough, but it won't stop you from inhaling anything unless you have a proper mask rated for biological contaminates which scarves and bandanas don't count as. You might as well duck and cover during a nuclear blast. Homemade masks at this point are more about virtue signaling than being safe.

Masks protect others not you. They are important because every time you speak or cough droplets are sent out that can contaminate others or land on surfaces. Masks are very important to stopping the spread and prob be mandatory till the vaccine in 2021

Trump never called the virus itself a hoax, he called the democrats politicizing of corona virus their new hoax. In fact he spoke about the corona outbreak in china in the state of the union address so clearly he didn't think it was fake. Having said that...

I guess when governors, mayors, and their health teams are telling people to go out and mingle and the risk is low you get actual outbreaks.  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/16/nyregion/coronavirus-bill-de-blasio.html

Clearly you must be informed and anyone who disagrees is misinformed. I know the virus is real, the response to it is what most people are questioning. Parroting your favorite news channel doesn't make you informed, in fact generally it makes you less so when you blindly depend on people spoon feeding you information without thinking critically about what they tell you. 

Thank you for posting this. For many reasons. 

1. I was too lazy to do the research myself

2. Not in the mood to argue about info/misinformation

3. Now that politics got mentioned in a thread, this thread should be locked soon

I am in total agreement with you thanks again

He didn't mean that what he really meant was....

He was only kidding....

He was being sarcastic....

You'll find anything to criticize him for.....

He never said that.......

It must be so tiresome defending such a clown.

Thanks for the PSA you heard on TV...  Homemade masks, which is what I've seen most people wearing, aren't stopping anything more than large globs of spit when you cough that directly hit the mask. Whereas all the small particles that are suspended in the air and travel aren't stopped by most masks. The masks people are wearing don't create an air tight seal on your face which means you aren't stopping anything more than snot rockets and luggies.

How did I know there would be a cop out? I didn't ask who don't you trust, I asked who you do trust? Every source of news comes from a source where money is involved but there are definitely more and less trusted sources. 

I trust news that doesn’t spend 99% of its resources attacking one side. Only blames one side and is pessimistic about every aspect of life. 
 

I have seen not 1 positive story on msnbc cnn the Washington posts and New York Times during this calendar year. 
 

when things start to get better, they find every expert with dire expectations they can find and report their “it will get worse then it was before” Narrative

any expert or scientist that says otherwise is silenced. Possibly banned from social media for false information or a conspiracy

Ok so 4 people got a month off. Got one more I may ban. @Maxman Has asked nicely and nobody seems to respect that. So it is what it is. 

Thank you for cleaning this up. We have no other choice right now because people think it is a free-for-all here.
