    I think the truth is now called xenophobia.

    Sorry for your loss, Dave. It’s real and we have to figure out how to keep moving and deal with it in a logical fashion.

    And where’s the pity for all the married people. I’ve been in 20 man brawls that we’re more enjoyable than being married some days, maybe enjoyable is the wrong word, but easier for sure:D

    ETA: I’ve been married a long time, love my wife. But some days.....:eek:

    A neighbor and friend died from it. He contracted it from a family function, several family members died and one is/was in the hospital.

    why don’t we just put everyone over 65 into box cars and ship them off to take cyanide showers and then use them instead of coal for generating electricity? Wouldn’t that solve the COVID issue plus a lot of other problems?

    I’m fighting Covid myself, about day 8 or 9. I’m over 55 decent health, no adverse health issues. It’s been a full on fight, fever, extreme fatigue, cough etc...

    I’ve been doing C, Zinc, D, Iodine & recently delved into some steroids. I’m taken aback by the lack of normal treatment from most facilities. They all say, unless you can’t breathe, stay home.

    So much more can be done besides a vaccine. Even the drug Ivermectin has shown great promise (no don’t eat your dog medicine). It’s a different format for people.

    Here is a site with real meat & potatoes about care & what works.

    Testing itself does nothing, doesn’t lead to any treatment. I subscribe to the ‘UT Mom Code’.
