    It is not going to go away. So we can either close down everything for a long time essentially shuttering our way of life, and risk the collapse our entire governmental & economic systems. Or, we can accept the fact that people are going to get it and just try to do the best we can to be careful and limit the spread as much as possible and move forward with life.

    Open it up all the way. Schools, economy, restaurants, bars, and every other thing. Expose yourself. Build up a herd mentality. What’s the point in living if your hunkered down listening to fear mongers with an agenda. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed for anyone. When you were born you were issued an expiration date. Good Lord wants you He’s gonna take you. Wu Tang Virus or eating a tree from hydro planing. Does it matter? Living scared isn’t going to do anything but make it worse. I love telling you about infection rates going up, but fail to mention death rates dropping. Those immune systems are putting in work.

    Ok here goes - long post alert. I have had it. My family attended a wedding on June 6th. About 100 people were in attendance. We did not wear masks even though we brought them. On June 8th we started exhibiting mild allergy type symptoms - running nose, cough, sneezing, scratchy throat. No one had a fever. The first confirmed Covid-19 case from the wedding attendees was diagnosed on June 11th, two more June 12th and two more June 13th. My family tested June 15th and all were positive except my son who tested negative. To date 25+ people who attended the wedding have tested positive with many more choosing not to get tested or were asymptotic. My experience has been mild. I would describe it as cold/allergy or light flu-like symptoms never leaving my head. No fever and never felt like I needed to go to a Dr. I did lose my sense of taste and smell around June 13th and they didn’t start returning until around June 24th. That was weird. My wife’s experience has been much different. It got into her lungs after a week and she can not shake it. She had severe headaches and body pains and also lost her taste and smell. She has no energy and the smallest task will drain her and she has to lay down. She spent the night in the hospital June 23rd because she could not catch her breath. They diagnosed her with pneumonia in both lungs but Covid-19 test came back negative. Since discharge on June 24th she has been on breathing treatments every four hours, hydroxachloroquine, steroids, antibiotics, 10 different vitamins and an all vegan diet. My largest concern with the medical field as a whole is there is not a plan to deal with those patients who can’t get well in 14 days on meds and rest. “Come back to the ER if you don’t feel well” is not a plan. And we don’t feel she needs to be hospitalized at this time as there are others who are far worse off. Also there is not a mandatory retest to ensure you are not still positive after the 14 days. Why? My wife has not made much progress in the last week and we are referring her to a Pulmonary Specialist to continue treatment and get better. My son has been tested three times since June 15th and all have come back negative. He was in the wedding, was at the same table as us for the reception, rode in the car with us home and did not leave the home from June 8-15th when we should have been contagious. He has not had any symptoms the entire time. Maybe eating dirt as a child finally paid off! As for Covid-19, I respect it much more now than I did before. It is HIGHLY contagious in tight spaces with an active case. It is real and can certainly lead to severe complications or death if not treated in a timely manner. It is not the flu. I tend to think the risk is less with surface contact than reported in the media. I believe the value of masks in public places is to protect others by limiting your droplets from talking, coughing or sneezing (which is where I believe the largest threat of spread is). The mask is not meant as a barrier to keep you from getting infected. Recognize the early symptoms and don’t discount them as allergy related if you have them. Don’t assume you will have a fever because that is not the primary symptom IMO. If you think you might have Covid-19 go get tested. If you test positive stay home and don’t risk getting others sick. If you test positive go get retested with a negative result after 14 days before you return to normal activities. It’s the right thing to do. As for the fall, I support the kids going back to school and resuming extra curricular activities with necessary adjustments. No need to flip the fall/spring. It adds no value IMO. This thing is here to stay and I think we are going to have to deal with it eventually vs hiding from it in fear. Is it going to put stress on our hospital network - yes. Will more people die from it - yes. But total shutdown until it’s gone is not a realistic alternative either. The mental damage in that scenario is likely more harmful than the physical.

    I don’t agree with that. If you are concerned enough about COVID to avoid sending your kid to school then how can you justify sending them to participate in an extracurricular activity?

    My answer is hell no. Why? The government never stops and is never satisfied. Do I think one needs an AR 15? Not really but I understand why they fight it. You give in and then it snowballs until all you’re left is a single shot 22. Government has no right to dictate when I can have a normal life. It’s hard to take them serious when 10 people group together at a bar is outrageous but a protest with thousands in a attendance is deemed ok and no threat of spreading the Wu Tang Virus.

    Giants- makes fun of the vertically gifted and the vertically challenged 49ers- hillbillies who pillaged the land, killed Native Americans in their hunt for gold Browns- just really, really bad at football Packers- slaughtering animals is nothing to be proud of Chargers- electricity is evil, solar power is better Bengals- endangered species Titans- supports Greek mythology which is full of rape and misogyny Jets- supports air pollution, rich people and mocks the ground based Bears- named after animals is bad, named after a group of alternative lifestyle men is brave and courageous Buccaneers- rapists, pillagers, Congressman is the more PC term

    THIS^^^^^^^^^^^ Bernice King said “Rayshard Brooks should have been lowed to return home to his family that night..” #1. Had he not been passed out drunk in the drive thru line, that would have happened... #2 Since he Was drunk driving, while on Parole; He was going to jail, & probably back to prison. Brooks made a series of bad choices the night he died, and his death was Completely due to his actions, not the police officers he fought.

    ITS NOT GOING AWAY, EVER. How long is it going to take people to realize that? Surely all of y’all are smart enough to know that. So there is only one solution, OPEN EVERYTHING UP. I mean seriously, are we going to shut the country down every single fall? If we are, someone please let me know now so I can go somewhere cooler and Homestead off the grid.

    The only real justice being executed in the United States right now appears to be whatever comes from the President’s desk. – Corrupt Marxist Minnesota Governor Tim Walz found that out the hard way late Friday evening, as his despicable request for a federal government bailout to repair the riot damage done to Minneapolis was outright denied by the Trump Administration. From a story at the Minneapolis Star Tribune: The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd’s death. Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a “major disaster” for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd’s May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz. The governor’s spokesman, Teddy Tschann, confirmed late Friday that the request for federal aid was denied. “The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” Tschann said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.” [End] Oh, darn. Oh, heck. Oh, that nasty old Donald Trump. Thank God for Donald Trump and his clear-eyed view of this world. These riots were Democrat Party riots. BLM and Antifa, the two domestic terrorist groups that organized and managed the riots, are nothing but Democrat Party armed support groups, just as the Ku Klux Klan was for more than a century in this country. These Democrat Party riots were enabled and urged on by Democrat mayors and Democrat governors and simply do not in any way merit the intervention of the U.S. taxpayer to help to pay for the damage they caused. This Trump ruling was a big middle finger to Gov. Walz, and it sends a very important signal to the Democrat Party and its armed terrorists: You break it, you buy it. It is the only proper signal to send.

    You can call him all sorts of inaccurate names if it makes you feel better ... the fact is President Trump has kept most of his promises and has delivered big time for the American people ... Four more years of his outstanding leadership is EXACTLY what America needs ....

    To my knowledge, the Sul Ross statue is strictly memorizing his contributions as president. It will wind up being taken down and a non binary, vegan, polyamorous, ethnically neutral statue in the vibrant colors of the rainbow will go up it’s in place. Said statue will be throwing a Hook’em, Sic’em, Gun’em, Pony Up hand signal so as not to offend any other colleges in the great state of Texas. Word is Revielle is really kicking butt in her social justice warrior re-education camp.

    http://Malcolm X said: "The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn't taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man."

    Ok, Barry & Jett... Since both of you put thumbs down on my post, I take it that: 1. You Approve Of people driving drunk. 2. You Approve Of passing out under the wheel while in line at the drive thru. 3. You Approve Of lying to a police officer conducting an investigation. 4. You Approve Of resisting arrest. 5. You Approve Of throwing a police officer to the ground, stealing his Taser & fleeing with it. & 7. You Approve Of Firing the stolen Taser (a Deadly Weapon under Georgia Law) at the pursuing police officer. Your thumbs down to my post means you agree with Everyting Rashard Brooks did on the night of his death, and you think Rashard Brooks was murdered... Correct?

    Geoffrey Berman was a political hack doing the bidding of the left .... he should have been removed long ago ... AG Barr is a breath of fresh air, he's easily the least partisan AG to hold that office in decades .... that's why the wackturd liberals and the fake news media hate him ....

    That's the thing... my tolerance levels grew. My understanding grew. My ideals never changed. I have gay friends. I have gay family. I have Clinton diehards (God Bless Arkansians) in my family. I can listen to them. I don't fight them. There is no reason to. I make them explain their reasoning on why something is right or wrong... I keep asking them to elaborate until they hit a dead end. I never force my views on them. Sometimes they ask. They usually hate the answer. Most of my homosexual friends grew up in church etc and are now Godless people. So they don't understand. My liberal family thinks the Democratic party has no flaws until they are asked to put it up against their religious beliefs and our Constitutional freedoms. The truth is, being a God fearing person and a 100% Democrat is Godless. The work of Satan. If you are a mildly conservative Democrat then you may have some room to wiggle... But if you are going to stand with Nancy and Joe and how they have treated your freedoms in the past, you may as well be an Athiest Canadian.

    There are always going to be stories of injustice in a populace of 340 million. Is it a sweeping pandemic of racism by police? No is it systemic? No Is it unfortunate, sad and do I wish it never happened? Yes. You can’t claim it flooding every time it rains.
