Every child born today, except the ones with rich parents, are deeply in debt thanks to politicians that think "Debt is great" and "I will balance the budget in 2034".

90% eh where did you get those stats???? I'm thinking somewhere between 25 and 30% but that is a "guess".


Us Labor statistics. 1/1/2020 164,606,000 workforce. Out of work now 22,000,000. Percentage of workforce out of work = .13%

87% of workforce is still working based on latest numbers.

BETTER ??????
Once again those pesky facts just keep ruining arguments made purely out of emotion. This is the internet afterall, facts shouldn't be allowed.

And about the defect in modeling; I thought the outcome was predicted based on how people where acting. Change the actions, the outcome will change.


Nope; that's incorrect. How people were going to act was plugged and factored into the model.

Texas is currently 12th in the US for number of cases 8,262 and has had 154 deaths. And 0.3% of the states population has been tested. Wait two weeks and check the numbers again. Maybe you will change your views at that time.

Above was from 4/7/2020.
4/17/2020 update - Texas has had 17,371 cases and 428 Fatalities

Here is some more bad news for you doom and gloomers. This chart is from the CDC. It shows the flu season for almost 40 years of data collection. The flu season is going to end in very short order according to the CDC's own data collected over a long period of time.

CV19 along with the other flu viruses will crash very soon.

The Dr in pic was wearing a Respirator, they are designed to protect your lungs. They have to be conformed to your nose to be efficient. Then there are dust masks pic 1 that look similar and may or may not have the metal pc to bend but they may specifically say "Not intended to protect your lungs". So look the package over to suite your needs.

No matter what you wear you should try to seal it to your face as much as possible.

So for those may sayers, I was a Construction Superintendent for many years and I was responsible for the safety of my employees. We had different types of "RESPIRATORS" that we used all depending on what we were trying to avoid getting into our lungs.

The N95 pic 2 we used for drywall and other contaminates in the air. We would use the ones with replaceable filters pic 3 for things like contact cement.

They all have to be worn properly as I mentioned. Whatever you wear make sure it conforms as tightly to your face as possible so the air you inhale is filtered.

Well here is another Government Official that has his head up his AZZ. Notice metal is NOT bent to conform to his nose. GREAT example!!!

Below is MY Properly worn attire with a Folded Bounty paper towel covering my nose and mouth, per Surgeon Generals advice!

The other pic? That's my Brother. [emoticon]

I might of missed it, but the only reason to not have the "Shelter in Place" order is "people losing jobs". But that does not make sense, because people doing the important work are still doing it. What we really need to do is have as many people as possible stay home but protect their income
Can we add about $10,000.00 to the income tax you currently pay to pay for your "protect their income" program. Because all were doing now is putting it on the credit card for our kids and grandkids to pay. Nothing like adding another $10T to the national debt to pay for something that didn't have to go down this way.
Our kids are going to be so proud of us to leave them with this debt on top of what we already handed them.


Explain to me like I'm a 3rd grader how much better it is for the debt we pass to our grandchildren to pass out money to corporations that have been making record profits for a decade than pay it to people that work for their money, collecting a smaller wage in same dollars than where 30 years ago?
If the city in China can open after 76 days by shutting down and support the population while doing it why can't US?

And I bet most of the grandkids, if give a choice, would prefer to inherit a livable planet, but that is another discussion.
