"Can you imagine a time when the number of infected or dead from the virus are classified for the purposes of national security?"
I hadn't thought about it before but that absolutely could happen. In fact I expect him to try. Not sure how you can fight a virus and not allow medical professionals to share what they know with one another at a minimum, which includes the number of deaths/infections.

"A lot are dying in their homes and the death numbers are underestimated."
An old friend of my best friend was found dead in his Long Island apartment by his father two days ago. 47 years old. He told his friends and family that he wasn't feeling well and was planning to self quarantine to be safe. Was at least 48 hours before he was found. A struggling artist and gig worker with no health insurance. I hadn't seen the guy in at least 15 years. There will be an autopsy because of his age to determine COD. There will not be a wake or other service due to limits on congregations. His mother is beside herself with grief.

"they are simply victims of an invisible killer whose lethality and impact is minimized by stunods such as yourself."
I gave you a funny flag for using "stunods" in a sentence. Don't think I've ever seen that word spelled before.
Then I gave you a newsworthy flag for the general point of your statement. Unlike the opioid overdose deaths there is nothing I can do to guarantee I won't contract COVID-19. Doc knows this; he's just confused about the dangers of minimizing the threat of what's happening.

" Thanks HAGBARD, I'll check that out."
Saw it last night on PBS Newshour. You can probably find the patterns and the collection agencies on their website.

After being given an alternating schedule on Tuesday morning it took my boss 15 minutes for them to remember what my wife does for a living so I got sent home to work remotely for the next month. First day I wore work clothes. Second day I was in my pajamas until the middle of the afternoon. Yesterday I ate a bowl of cereal for lunch. I'm afraid what today will bring. Thankfully my daughter is home with me which should keep me from decompensating too much further.

" I've decided to locate my mother's ol' Singer Sewing Machine (treadle/manual) and make myself some new living room curtains."
You should sew some face masks for hospital staff if you have the urge to pull out a sewing machine. There's a campaign for it and patterns available online.

" Dr. Fauci has sold his soul to Trump, honestly, I don't believe a word he says any more."
Fauci is in a tight spot. If he says anything that explicitly contradicts or undermines what Trump is saying he risks being sidelined and replaced with a loyalist that is far less capable than he is. I promise you that is something you do not want. Rest assured that behind the scenes he is doing everything possible to protect the greatest number of people.

" McCoy Tyner, iconic and influential jazz pianist, dies"
I'm glad I got to see him about 10 or 15 years ago. A true legend.

" how come acknowledging Hitler helped the German economy doesnt make you a supporter.... but when Bernie Sanders acknowledges Cubas increase in literacy under Castro he is labeled a communist?"
That's a question more importantly put to Democrats who don't support Sanders.

" Did the President of the United States just ------- say we don't want you to get tested unless you have symptoms?!"
Not watching but if we don't have enough tests to administer to everyone that walks into a hospital or doctors office we have to limit their use to people that are symptomatic or have had direct exposure to somebody who has been diagnosed as being infected.

"A meth party sounds like a good place to do some people watching."
Too Requiem for a Dream for my tastes.

"Link to one of the friends present at Gollum's meth party."
Next time an NSFW warning would be nice.
His wife had to know.
And screw you for linking me to a Candace Owens tweet. LOL.

"You OK?" #15 | POSTED BY LAMPLIGHTER
It might've been a stroke. Maybe rcade has enough personal information to call the EMT's to his home.

"Bill Hicks aka Alex Jones"
Just now was the first time I ever bothered to ask what the internet might have to say about that question. I figured I'd go to wiki to find out about his education. I stopped dead in my tracks when I learned he is a year younger than I am. I'm not in peak shape for my age but god damn I look young compared to that guy.

"Literally everything progressives have been trying to fix is being laid bare as the appropriate response to this pandemic. Maybe someday people will listen."
Things have to affect the white middle class for us to do much of anything to help the poor in this country. Same with drugs (crack > heroin > opiods).

Thanks for proving my point. Top marks for you.

Where are all the woke, feminist, 9 to 5 singing, Elizabeth Warren supporters here demonstrating their dissatisfaction with a man shooshing a woman? They'd be here if it was Bernie or Trump that had done it. Make no mistake.

There's always an excuse. Then when (?) Biden is president the excuse will be that anything more than a nod to the left will threaten the election chances of candidates in purple districts.
"If you want to pull the major party, that is closest to the way you're thinking, to the way you're thinking you must show them that you're capable of not voting for them. If you don't show them that you're capable of not voting for them they don't have to listen to you. I promise you that. I worked within the Democratic Party. I didn't listen to or have to listen to anything on the left while I was working in the Democratic Party because the left had nowhere to go."
- Lawrence O'Donnell

"But go ahead and keep thinking that it is just proof of some hair-brained conspiracy against Sanders in 2016. And make sure to polish your tin foil hat tonight. The brain control waves can get through if it isn't nice and shiny."
You see, now this is the way to unite the party to defeat Trump in November. More of this please.

" But cancel his rallies? "I'm not going to do it," he says."
His rallies are everything to him. They even him out. Well as even as is possible for him at least.

" He's unhinged. If Bernie had done that they would have a field day."
It would've been posted by ReinheitsgeBanner if Tor didn't beat him to it and Twinpac and Gal would be first in line to call him Angry Bernie. Then somebody would come along to say they always knew this about him and that it shows he hates real Americans.
