So this is what? About one-percent of the eventual American dead? I mean, if we manage to everything "perfect"?

I suspect conservative Americans will lose their minds before this is over because the only possible solutions are going to be Socialism whether or not we call it that. Capitalism only survives now because of Socialism bailing it out.

most Conservative Americans don't imagine they are libertarians. They aren't going to lose their mind over a massive effort lead by govt. to get through this.

They mostly likely won't ever admit it's socialism no matter how many times you call it that.

My friend's mother in law died yesterday. She had been intubated and in an induced coma since Thursday or Friday. Worst part was that none of her kids could be there when they extubated and she passed on. That's the second person I know to die after a 47 year old guy I know from back in the day died last week.

"They mostly likely won't ever admit it's socialism no matter how many times you call it that."

Agreed, but it does confirm my view that the opposition to socialism is ideological nonsense rather than nuts and bolts common sense. Things like healthcare need to be socialize because, as we can clearly see right now, for profit healthcare can't handle the load. We all have to back our healthcare system, that means socialism whether or not they are allergic to the word.

We should put up a counter labeled "Trump Death Toll".

The Biden campaign should do it too.

I told you guys that obsessing over the number of "lies" a politician told was pointless. But this ---- is real.

We just reached 9/11 numbers.

Imagine Trumpy making that speech on the rubble of 9/11.

President Trump: Thank you all. I want you all to know -- it [bullhorn] can't go any louder -- I want you all to know that America today, America today is on bended knee, in prayer for the people whose lives were lost here, for the (doctors) who work here, for the families who mourn. The nation stands with the good people of New York City and New Jersey and Connecticut as we mourn the loss of thousands of our citizens to this (VIRUS).

Nurse : I can't hear you!

President Trump : I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the (VIRUS) -- and the (VIRUS) who knocked these (PEOPLE) down will hear all of us soon!

(As soon as we can find it. It's around here somewhere. We sent some tests somewhere. China maybe got them. )

Team dotard is now worried about CV deaths in red states.

How broken and depraved do you have to be to go on background with a reporter and say campaign aides are worried about red state deaths. Whoever said this needs to step away from politics and seek help.

It'll "scythe" across Red State cities first.

Let's see if there any Trump supporters in foxholes.

Because it benefits them.

Soshulizm is a slur used by people who are angry they're not getting a piece of the pie and think all pies should only be baked when the need a slice.

"C-c-conservative ideals" are wholly situation dependent.

That's all they've ever been afraid of.

Why else do you think Trump and his minions acted sanely just long enough for a corporate enrichment scheme to be passed?

The CDC issued its first warning on Jan 8.

Trump held campaign rallies on Jan 9, Jan 14, Jan 28, Jan 30, Feb 10, Feb 19, Feb 20, Feb 21 & Feb 28.

He golfed on Jan 18, Jan 19, Feb 1, Feb 15, Mar 7 & Mar 8.

The first time he admitted the coronavirus might be a problem was Mar 13.

This is how I see it going down for red staters in the heartland.

As you mention, cities get hit hard first. Medical resources dry up rapidly at the major medical centers and larger hospitals.

It really sets in in the rural populations some time after that. The larger regional/area hospitals can't deal with the patients coming in from rural areas. They're spent and still dealing with patients from the urban areas.

Rural hospitals are completely unprepared and have no capabilities to deal with the influx and can't transfer them anywhere. Med staff at these smaller locations get ill or walk out for fear of their own safety.

COVID hits harder per capita in the heartland than it does anywhere else so far.
