I don't often do it but I looked at the coronavirus scorecard this morning As of 9:45 am cdt , May1, there are 1,096,268 confirmed coronavirus cases in the US. Of these 63,766 have died , and this indicates a US coronavirus death rate of  .058, or not quite 6%. Yesterday 30,458 new cases were confirmed.  Applying the .058 rate to the number of new cases, we can see that...
May 01 2:45pm @4.1.19 Meanwhile, Georga opened today while getting 1,000 new cases. What was I saying about critical thinking skills.....?  Places like this is where we will see the first failures of our medical system...
May 01 1:48pm @5.1.2 The best number to look at is going to be actual deaths in 2020 by month in comparison against say a previous 5-7 year average. That can be calculated state by state too.  The difference will be...
May 01 1:44pm @4.1.10 So you're seeing it the same way I am then.  Money stops moving/changing hands, and the economy seizes up.
May 01 1:42pm @4.1.8 At this point John.... is it really going to matter? Anybody that is taking sides along party lines right now is a fool.  Our partisan/tribal loyalty over the past 40 years has brought us all...as...
May 01 1:30pm @4.1.4 A viable vaccine in six months, is that a reality, or wishful thinking?  I think May is going to be telling in that all of those states where we didn't think we have virus problems is going to...
May 01 12:05pm @4 Been trying to put the multiple pieces together, and woke up this morning to realize that we have two mutually exclusive goals.  In the face of this virus, and our tribalism, we will fail to meet...

May 01 11:20am @3.2 Capt. Crozier should have never been dismissed for simply looking after his crew and ship. True to a point..... When made public, the Navy will always frown on displaying dirty laundry in public,...
May 01 11:12am @2.4 I've been following this through the Navy Times.  The Navy has completed it's investigation and recommended he be reinstated.  It looks as though it was the chain of command above the captain that...

I kinda like what this guy has to say, and he left the party for many of the same reasons I did.  Need to do some more research on the man, but might be someone who could challenge the 2 party lock on our system.  Somebody that perhaps both moderate Republicans, Democrats and of course Independents could get behind?  Civil, rational and reasonable thoughts welcome.  Nasty partisan bickering,...
May 01 10:46am @5.1.6 Right there with you..... I was set to vote for Johnny Mac, then his statement of "waterboarding not being torture"  (he knew better) made me pause.  His selection of Caribou Barbie as his running...

May 01 9:38am @8.1.3 "..." We'd have to go back to the 1970s to find a president that didn't do that......
May 01 9:33am @6.1 Citizens United has to go, and all campaign donations need to be out in the open. Those whom a candidate is willing to take money from says more than any of their campaign speeches ever will. 
May 01 9:29am @5.1.4 I align myself with what were known as "Goldwater Republicans"   True fiscal conservatism, strict separation of church and state, and much more tolerant of social differences.  That all started to...
May 01 9:23am @3.1.1 Thanks for your taxes....!  I got paid to do a lot of really cool things.  There were some really ugly times, but I'd still do it all over again if I could.   In general I think that the concept...

May 01 9:46am @1.1.3 It's a balance between protecting the physical and financial lives of America, and Americans.  Our government is charged with both. I'd say toss all of the politicians into the cheap seats, and...
