You mean they are ****ting more so they need all of the damn toilet paper they can get their grubby hands on. Get real. This is selfishness and lack of consideration for others at it's best.

Im shocked at TV...at our age we have gone thru worse. So many veterans here that went thru worse.

We have no kids here to protect and feed. But the entitled worry warts have cleaned out the stores.

Wait for two years and the news will have articles on the Year the World Went Nuts

Sorry...not buying it...scientists and politicians just love to control.

Default Better This Than 1918 Pandemic

Read some history people. The 1918 Spanish flu pandemic killed anywhere from 50 to 100 million people in 1918-19 worldwide.The flu came and went in 3 waves, each worse than the last. Pray to God that Covid 19 never approaches those numbers. Over 500 million people were infected worldwide. It killed over 600,000 Americans. Listen to what you’re being told and stop whining.

Like I said, I hope you're right and this is an overreaction but, personally, I'm taking it seriously.
I'm taking it seriously too, but my math says 1300.

over 58,000 died in Vietnam no one made a big deal about it then and they are still dying from it, all of a sudden we have a virus and people panic and when it is over we won't see the totals of people dying anywhere near what we have seen.

Real fact: as of today, 3-23-20, there are 43,449 cases of COVID19 in the US, with 545 deaths. And counting. Our government should have been taking this seriously 2 months ago.

Your math is right, I don't know how I came up with 5,000. But still, 1300 in the next few months is a lot.

I guess another way to deal with this is to just keep things as normal and ride it out. We'd lose some people but maybe the economy wouldn't take such a nosedive. It would kinda suck to be one of the ones who didn't make it though....

I wonder how many people have had it, have recovered, and now are immune. Hell I felt like crap 2 weeks ago....I'd love to find out.
