    The truth is you don't have the foggiest idea, and neither do I. This issue has been politicized from the beginning, the media cannot be trusted as they are no longer neutral, several prominent voices have said just that, they do not know where to get the truth. Even the credentialed have bias in today's political climate.

    That said we can do what we do and continue on in judicious fashion or shut down the country. I prefer not to wreck the entire economy over something that ANY projection is just guesswork, no matter how credentialed the guesser. Individuals should take age and health appropriate precautions.

    That just is not logical. I'm with doctors every day and none of them are saying that. Folks with health issues and weak immune systems need to take serious precautions. The healthy need to stop basking in arrogant affluence and wash their hands and stop unnecessary contact. In other words practice good hygiene to stop the spread.

    Unfortunately, we are shutting the country down. ILL just closed all restaurants. This one is going to leave a big mark.

    And while I agree we need to "bend the curve" we can do it without pushing us into depression.

    Real time stats here, so you can measure the "predictions."

    Government in general has failed its citizens consistently for decades. This is no different. Go vote in November for who you think will do the best job. This will pass. Like with all things the strongest survive. I suggest we all post some pictures from last years boating season and end the hostility. Plenty of other places for that. Its not why we come here.

    This all will have such a huge impact.

    Really?

    Doctors are no better or worse than anyone else. They are very book smart, some that are surgeons have great hand eye skills. They know what they know very well. They have studied with laser focus to do what they do very well.

    They definitely have no great insight into the world. I have taught many how to write a check. LOL A problem with many is they have money so the world sucks up to try to get it with flattery that creates a above all thinking. Great people, but just highly educated and skilled humans, not Gods...
