    I am not a fan of Trump, but he has risen to the occasion in spades. I have zero problem voting for him this time around. Democrats have proven 100% they should never be in control of this country.

    Americans believe Republicans are less concerned than other Americans about the spread of coronavirus, fewer Republicans have changed their behaviors to protect against contracting the virus and a majority of Republicans believe the threat of coronavirus is being blow out of proportion.

    Americans also believe that Democrats are all hiding under their beds too afraid to use the restroom so they just wet themselves and suck their thumb. Democrats would rather sit at home and collect their welfare check than actually work so they are okay with the stay at home order.

    It's funny how Americans see each party.

    Simply stupid. You really are a bot. Come back later and use punctuation to stop this run on sentence. And if you are not a bot, ground views in some sort of fact. NBC isn’t a good source.

    I'm not sure that he's wrong. The Coronavirus is disproportionately impacting densely populated areas. That's going to be Democrats.

    If it wasn’t for NY and NJ, we wouldn’t be in shutdown. Do you think NY/NJ would stop working if it switched places with Texas? Note Texas has 1m more population that NY+NJ. Nearly 7000 deaths vs 167.

    I have not looked at Zoom stock but it seems like it should be one of the beneficiaries of this weird time. People mention it all the time (sometimes in humorous ways).
    Also, get outside some too!

    edit - OK, i did look - it went up initially but now falling as there have been complaints

    It's also disproportionately effecting seniors. I'd think that would mean it's hurting Trump supporters.

    A San Antonio nursing home had 5 people die yesterday, in one day. The nation's nursing homes are fodder for this thing. The residents have no where else to go and most have underlying conditions.

    I was on a national zoom call last week that got hacked. Kids being aggys. Apparently, some security issues have been highlighted in zoom through this.

    Some City was doing their conference to all citizens via Zoom and, of course, none of them could figure out how to shut it off when they were done. So next thing you know, a string of d-picks started flooding in. Couldnt be stopped.

    Not really...weather in that area was basically mid-70's with some low-80's. That isn't what I deem 'warm.'

    Loosely translated...you seem offended by the fact that persons who hold beliefs more consistent with the Republican party are capable of the use of common sense.

    For some reason, this upsets those that want the government to hold their hand at every step of a path and demand a whole bunch of free crap and helicoptered monies.

    Most people won’t care about this but Zoom is being ripped apart by those who care about privacy and security because Zoom’s claims about encrypted communications revealed that they had no idea how that works, and many of their staff and servers are in China.

    I do the workouts outside, just like I would if it were an in person camp. I'll usually go for a walk later in the day as well.

    I think the war analogy is pretty good Wars often start badly for the defenders (look at the Allies in WWII). Germans and Japanese started the war with a mindset that made aggression, fighting and killing pretty easy on them, both logistically and emotionally. The Allies didn't just need weapons and training, they needed decision making skills most easily learned through consequences of poor decisions. The Allies learned and eventually kicked butt.

    If I'm hospitalized for COVID-19 6 months from now, I expect more skilled treatment than folks are getting now.

    Actually. Every statement LongestHorn makes in the quote is incorrect. "Americans" don't believe it. Progressive Marxists do.

    All Americans have drastically changed their behaviors. All Americans know the corona virus is a serious disease.

    However, Progressive Marxists love the opportunity to 1) use government power to control other people and 2) attempt to smear Trump.

    Never let a crisis go to waste!

    Our church has a daily prayer time that was hacked the same way. The problem was solved in about 5 minutes. The host can change a setting so that he/she has to allow anyone trying to join a call.

    Or one could argue middle America needs to find its voice and get us back to work sooner! Without an economy this will be a slow ride to hell for all of us. My wife has made 80 masks. We’re trying to help but my customers are paying employees to stand around in some cases. Plants are shutting down. It will take a few months to recover if we restart it right now. If this quarantine lasts through May, it will be 2021 sometime before our country returns to normal! We have hydroxychloroquine and Z pac for now and Dr Glanville has a vaccine getting approved (early stages). We cannot pretend all will be well if this continues that’s fools gold. I do agree anyone sick in months from now will get better treatment. But first we have to build back our economy so the healthy have something to come back to.

    I get that the worst victims of this are the elderly. However, the location of the overall cases and the most severe restrictions tend to be in Democratic areas. Accordingly, it wouldn't shock me to hear that Republicans have less fear of this and think we're overreacting at least to a point. It's anecdotal, but most Republicans I know think we are at least somewhat. Most Democrats I know are pissing their pants that we haven't invoked Order 66.

    Two things that Dems haven’t comprehended in their panic: 1) most people are going to get the virus before a vaccine is ready, so the point of quarantine is to flatten the curve, not reduce the area under the curve (as if your typical Dem knows integrals), and 2) I read that half of the deaths were likely to happen in the next 6 months anyway.

    Not to throw a wrench in anyone's soup. But patient zero here in the Valley just tested positive again after testing negative after her recovery. Don't know what that means...…...

    BTW: She's a nurse who contracted the virus on a vacation trip to Hawaii...
