I don’t remember what we earned in 2018 but I hope we receive something but I’m not sure we will.

Did you file a 2019 return? That’s what they’ll go off, not 2018. If you haven’t filed in 2019 yet, then yes it’s 2018.

This is really good from Bill Maher. More people should listen to this 5 min clip. Like that, you will love this.

Any expert on the subject hopes to be wrong on their projections. 

Who exactly should be quarantined? Would you lump yourself into that group?

Everyone age X and older? All obsese people? Diabetics? Ashmatic? Who cares for these people? Gets them groceries and other supplies? Do you seal them off in their homes? 

All logical points, but being given to a very illogical person. Quaker ONLY looks at things from a poli-bias stance, so everything he personally disagrees with can be a liberal conspiracy (even if a conservative is heavily involved; like I said, a very illogical person). So things like how Ohio is doing a lot better than most (if not all) the more densely populated states as far as slowing the spread somehow can be turned from a positive to a negative because, as he's pointed out, Dr. Acton is a filthy demmy. And every right-wing "overblown/hoax" talking point is the only real thing that matters because they "get it". And so on until you realize that actually talking/debating with him is a waste of time and if anyone deserves "OK BOOMER'd" into irrelevance, it's someone like him.

You'd think another 3 weeks should practically eliminate it.  But I'm not sure.  What if this doesn't go away, or what if it comes back during flu season?

Also, why can't they speed up the vaccine trials?  I understand the reason it takes so long, but what other option do we have if this doesn't go away?  Why not have the govt fund the trials, and then recruit volunteers to go right to Stage 3 trials and isolate them from the general population on the minute chance you've created some sort of frankenvirus?  We could have a vaccine by the end of summer, and we could provide hazard pay for the guinea pigs for a tiny fraction of the economic cost to quarantine a nation.  Again, I understand the risks but it seems like vaccines would be less risky than other unproven pharmaceuticals, plus people would only be taking it once or once a year.

Nope didn’t file 2019 yet because then I know we wouldn’t get anything. I was going to file but as soon as they started talking about it being based on income I held off knowing there was atleast a chance we were under that in 2018.

Watched it and was a fan.  I definitely don't agree with everything Maher says at all, but I respect his unapologetic approach and defense of the first amendment.  He is always going after the outrage/easily offended culture.   You know he makes a good point when even conservative twitter (Saavedra is pretty damn conservative) is applauding him.

So, are the hospitals all ramped up to handle this shit yet? Or are we locked down for the remainder of the fucking year?

I was just telling DLazz this weather blows and there’d probably be some fucking quad meet today with Dixie, TVS, and Northmont’s C team on top of it.

There are temporary hospitals going up in a lot of major cities. My company supplies oxygen to a good % of the hospitals around the US.

 

Not my department, but I have heard about the temporary hospitals. Cincinnati is putting one up here in OH.

 

I truly believe that most of these temporary hospitals will never see a patient.

Come on, CC.  An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.
