its funny how people equate going back to work, with people being *’s and going all willy nilly and doing whatever they want. The assumption is made that when people (I) talk about people getting back out and getting to work, the normal ASSumption is that everyone goes all out with no precautions and just run around infecting everyone with no care. It just solidified the irrational thoughts.....
Me, I never changed my routine.
You like to make a lot of assumptions and pretend they’re facts. Hospitals here have been laying off in large numbers because they’re empty.The shoe must fit.
You're forgetting a huge part of what this was about, which was not overwhelming hospitals, so that they could actually treat people and save lives. You have zero idea what it would have been like if no measures were taken. Nobody does. Even experts like rpm. We've been on lockdown for a month and a half now and we still hit a million cases, which is more than there are hospital beds in our country. You have no clue how many it could have been if we put the economy first.
Nobody seemed to have a problem when banks and corporations destroyed the economy in 2008. I didn't see conservatives wanting to do a whole lot about that except let them reap the benefits and try again. Or what about 9/11? 3000ish people dead. How many of you were ready to give up rights to stop it from happening again or supported endless wars on abstract terms (hint: terrorism)?
Let's be realistic here. This is political. Logic and reason has nothing to do with it. The right answer to all of this, if there is one, probably doesn't follow a political ideology; and yet here we are with only two courses of action that fall exactly along party lines. Don't pretend like any of you are being logical and pragmatic. You've made your choice based on politics.
You don't understand how hospitals are structured. They make a lot of money off of surgeries, many elective or non-emergency that can wait. All of that activity ceased and so they laid off people related to that. My roommate works in a hospital as an x-ray tech. Operating room x-rays pretty much stopped, so did a lot of the ortho- many people simply were avoiding Emergency Rooms for non-Covid related issues. As well as pretty much all neurology related CT and MRI scans. About the only thing they were doing were respiratory related chest x-rays, which were steadily coming in. So no, hospitals weren't laying people off because there were no Covid cases, hospitals laid people off because they stopped doing pretty much anything non-Covid related. Not everyone at a hospital works the ER, floors or ICU- in fact the majority do not.You like to make a lot of assumptions and pretend they’re facts. Hospitals here have been laying off in large numbers because they’re empty.
I did not compare driving drunk at 150 MPH to returning to a normal life, I compared it to someone taking zero precautions, perhaps breaking local laws, and putting others at risk because they feel like it. There is a HUGE difference.There’s no rational discussion with someone who can equate something like driving drunk at 150 to returning to a normal life with precautions. It’s not even on the same map, but to be expected I suppose, with all the crap your slinging from left field that has nothing to do with it. Deflecting at its finest.
I didn’t make a flu comparison, you did. I was showing you how ridiculous it is to say you don’t know anyone who has died of the flu, as if that means it never happens, but by all means keep up with the condescending ridiculousness. It keeps showing how you can’t carry on a rational debate with some people.What do you think the difference is between 74k people dying over a two year period and 60k people dying over a 2 month period is? Don't buy the flu comparison, it's not close to the same.
Some of you should trade your masks for tinfoil hats, that'll protect you.
Yes, I do have to sleep sometimes.you must be asleep.
