    Thanks for responding for me.

    I’ve come to the conclusion it’s in one’s DNA; There are the kind that seek the truth out for themselves and the kind that just listen to others who they believe are above them and take every word as gospel.

    It’s funny. Look in the mirror. I don’t normally listen to them but when I do, I actually listen and not just to what others said they said. They did not say what you claim in the context of what you claim. I research the evidence of the the news stories. I bet you believe Trump didn’t denounce the Nazis at Charlotteville either eventhough the transcript and video of his speech with the”fine people on both sides” shows that he did.

    I saw what the CDC and WHO said and when they said it. I saw the “hoax” speeches. It’s not hard to look up. It’s not what some have claimed, they did not say the virus was a hoax. The claim of Trump did nothing is the hoax they referred to. Actually listen and read what they said and not what someone claims they did.
    Even anti-trump Snopes isn’t claiming that he did

    Yet you think I go on someone’s word as gospel. It’s the opposite.

    Nobody was calling for "extraordinary" measures in January - so what you're saying makes no sense at all. Democrats were consumed with the fallout of their childish impeachment. You're still repeating the same lie about Tucker Carlson, despite the fact that he was the first host on cable news to take the virus seriously, and covered it extensively beginning in late January.

    Democrat "leaders" in NYC were denying the problem well into March:

    I'd be ashamed to post half the crap that's been posted here. This to shall pass. Odds are heavily in your favor and you will be fine. Its not as bad as H1N1 was in 2009...not even close and nobody even remembers that.

    Grow a pair...act like a damn American...have a little faith. Attitude means more than you think it does.

    By what metric is it not worse than H1N1?

    It has nearly caught H1N1 in deaths in America with but a tiny fraction of the cases.....

    I'm sorry I have had so much problem keeping reference pages pulled up that I used the world stats instead of the us stats. My bad.

    There were 18,000 deaths in the US from H1N1, 60 million infected.... Covid isn't even close. Could it get worse? Sure...who knows. We'll deal with it.

    That is like comparing a completed baseball game to a game in the top of the first inning.

    Nobody knows how Covid 19 will end up. Nobody.

    You’re right I misread the final tally and the deaths in November when it was declared an emergency.

    So it’s actually much more lethal than H1N1, and is killing significantly faster.

    You are right, it is not even close. COVID is tracking at 30x the mortality rate. That is orders of magnitude worse.

    LOL. And, the *only* time I got the flu in the last 20 years or so was the one year I neglected to get a flu vaccination. Go figure.

    And 45 Million cases.

    versus 2600 deaths out of a current 144k cases (rounded) and still climbing.

    I think you misinterpreted my post. I was agreeing with you and thanking you for replying to the post that was actually a response to mine. What you said was accurate. I’m on the same page as you.

    The funny thing is the person who I’m referring to above gave me a like on my post to you. I guess I confused everyone! Lol

    Oh, I get it you are playing CV-19 up 'til now vs. a full flu season. I know you don't care because it sets your entire storyline ablaze but you'd have a hard time finding any serious medical people who would agree with the thesis you are making.

    Here's what we know...............it's bad in some parts of The US and it's going to get much worse locally and nationally. And if we as a society had not instituted social distancing etc. we would be headed for an absolute nightmare.

    If you can't admit that's the deal of the cards you aren't paying attention or all of this is above you.
