re: This has become a shite show - davyjones
One thing that has really got to come from this is the institution of a central reporting system with uniform criteria for use in any and all future events. ...

re: I said I’ll take the projection of 100k-250k deaths seriously when I hear Trump say it - davyjones
Well, the February 26th briefing is the one that's often referenced in that argument, the one wherein he stated the [b]currently known at that time[/b] cases were going to zero. Which I believe was exactly true. He also said very clearly and directly at least two times in that same briefing that...

re: I said I’ll take the projection of 100k-250k deaths seriously when I hear Trump say it - davyjones
[quote]He also said it was a media hoax. Is he serious this time?[/quote] He's argued that the media placing blame exclusively at his feet is a hoax. Seems rather spot on to me. If there's evidence that he unambiguously stated that the virus itself is a hoax, well then I'd like to see it and if...

re: Why don’t some people realize this - davyjones
The peoples' confidence in their safety is as much an influence on this economy as anything else. Thus the President is managing and being as sensitive as possible to the public's mood in that regard, despite personal opinion he may have one way or another on a particular matter. Seems pretty ration...

[quote]Takeout is keeping us afloat for now, but it wont last.[/quote] One could envision a scenario wherein takeout will pick up even more though. Seems as if many people started of with that "run on groceries" with high hopes of using this time to "try to cook more." But that idea will likely fiz...

re: "Hundreds of journalists are being laid off, right when the public needs them the most" - davyjones
CNN is clearly insinuating that the referenced layoffs are directly related to coronavirus. Tampa Bay Times is cited in the underlying CNN business report as having laid off 11 journalists. But the Tampa Times article also includes this interesting passage: [i]"The layoffs were not related to adv...

re: Louisiana COVID Highlights as of Apr 2 at 2PM EST - davyjones
Yeah I'm a little skeptical of what goes into the hospitalization numbers. Because what it appears to the public on its face is every one of those in that number are in an intensive care situation. Just gut feeling though, nothing to base that suspicion on. ...

re: Louisiana COVID Highlights as of Apr 2 at 2PM EST - davyjones
Good question. Could be including in "hospitalization" statistic those who were technically admitted through say emergency room, but then rather quickly discharged with strict instructions. ...

re: CNN not even airing the opening statement of the briefing. msnbc is. - davyjones
[quote]CNN will selectively cut to the briefing if some DimMedia loon has a good Trump bashing/gotcha question.[/quote] Or they'll come back to it in later analysis. Selectively take things out of context. ...

re: Texas bans travelers from La - davyjones

re: 21 Million Chinese Cellphone Users Disappear In Three Months - davyjones
In communist China your cell phone information is entered into a national database that the government is kind enough to keep up with. As for the what and why, who knows but I'm sure it's not as a service to the individual. I believe S Korea has this official policy as well. ...

re: Simply having a New York license plate should not be probable cause for a stop. - davyjones
I'll have to read the case. First impression on gut feeling alone, I'm very skeptical that the jurisprudence results in this type of extraordinary power of a surgeon general. Or perhaps more specifically, such power could be applied in blanket fashion, i.e. mere interstate travelers. Someone on an i...
