    • Jeb.....I mean "Flaggy"...first, you do realize absolutely NO ONE on here is paying ANY attention to your ridiculous attempts at obfuscation by using the reports of daily death counts and trying to argue it's actually not as bad as it is. It's interesting that on one hand, you argue we have to be careful not to over-analyze certain statistics and use that data in an over-reaching manner as it might lead to poor policy decisions. Yet, you choose to try and parse the way the "daily" death counts are stated or accounted for as a way to micro-analyze that data to support your completely inaccurate and s****y narrative -- money over human life -- which, in all likelihood you aren't even benefiting from personally.

      To your Forbes article post on page 62; yes, the author is somewhat agreeing with you on the idea that broad policy decisions regarding Covid can have unintended consequences. Nobody is disagreeing with that. What I find interesting was the author's use of the potential fatality rate as an example that it's difficult to make policy decisions based on projections of specific, important stats. The infection fatality rate being one of them. He accurately points out that various well-respected sources differ in their current estimations of that rate, having it between 0.4 or 0.5 from the CDC, to as high 5% from the Washington Post. Personally, I'd prefer to use the Johns Hopkins' number which has hovered around 3.5% for the last month -- in most statistical analyses, the high and the low are thrown out to get the median so, I'm doing that here. Again, nobody here disputes these variances.

      However, even the author acknowledges we simply don't know what the rate truly is and, won't until many months from now. The point being is, when it comes to how we as a nation choose to react from a policy standpoint in regards to potential deaths and how we choose to prevent them moving forward, in the midst of a global pandemic the appropriate reaction is to err on the side of caution. Meaning, we will save more lives by assuming the IFR is closer to 3% than it is to 0.5%, as the former will result in far more preventable deaths than the latter. People/leaders who value human life over selfishness/self-preservation -- again, the "needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few". This is probably the 4th or 5th time I've used this phrase in a response to one of your posts Flaggy, yet, you have never responded to it specifically. Avoidance is usually an indication of fear. Meaning, deep down inside, you know you're a selfish, self-centered, and egotistical bastard. And, like the vast majority on the right these days, have decided that, as long as "you get yours", anything else that benefits society as whole isn't worth spending an ounce of time or emotion on.

        • I am a Behavior Therapist who works with autistic kids. When they are seeking attention in an undesirable way, we go to something called "planned ignoring." Basically, the client can kick, scream, pout, whatever, we just won't pay attention to them. Responding to kicking, screaming, pouting, "LOOK AT ME!", etc is reinforcing undesirable behavior and makes it more likely to happen again. However, the drawback to planned ignoring is it only works when everyone is in on it. It only takes one person for planned ignoring to fail.

          And I know what someone's going to say. To that someone: you telling us to "keep scrolling" is hard, considering it's you and Mr. Desperately Trying to be the Hip and Edgy Contrarian, But Is As Useful As Non-Alcoholic Beer going back and forth. On average, the ratio of valuable discussion to your slap fight is basically 1:18.

            Yes, but those numbers are also getting worse, so I don't see the argument.

              • They drive themselves to the gas chamber they created. Now that's boot straps.

                They all come in and mingle.

                They all go back to their families.

                Problem solved.

                    scroll on by or ignore.
                    Here is the frustrating thing- You post intelligent stuff I want to see when you're responding to other people. So does net. If I put you on ignore that means I might miss something you are saying in response to someone who is rational because your posts are no longer just greyed out, they are absent. At this point I am scrolling by almost whole pages.
                    Second- your constant responding is like cheering on a toddler who is throwing a tantrum. At one time you said something about countering his silliness in case people read it and believed. At this point there is zero chance any thinking human being is going to believe the B S he is posting. There are enough posts with legit info. There is no need to counter anything. I wonder if you use the arguments as a way to solidify what you believe (altho I can't say the last time I read one- I do scroll)

                        DC mayor is BEGGING asymptomatic ppl to get tested, hoping to up case count so they have excuse to continue the business lockdown & school closures. DC has recorded 8 COVID deaths over past 17 days COVID patients are taking up 2% of hospital capacity.

                        • Interesting that FL is making a big deal about the number of positive tests (less than 10%)... when all but a handful of sites are closed for testing.
