  1. Despite the Mayo Clinic expressly telling Mike Pence and his staff that they must wear a mask during a tour of the facility, VP Pence blatantly refused to wear one, even in the presence of doctors, nurses and a patient.
    As if we didn't know already, thank you VP Pence for confirming that you have absolutely no clue as to what is going on.  
    Who cares about freezers when administration officials act like this?  

    My advice to you is to refrain from making posts like this.

  2. Lowes here has plenty in stock.

    All of our Lowe’s in this area are showing no freezer availability mid July, while our Home Depot stores are sold out.

  3. I tried to buy a new freezer also because mine is 24 years old.  The appliance dealer I’ve known for 40 years, who belongs to an east coast buyers group, said that freezers are totally nonexistent and that some may start trickling in by summer.  
    As to the food shortage, I ask that everyone read this paper and draw your own conclusions (it will take 10 minutes).
    Please, make any comments general and stay away from politics.  What I want to know is what is being done with the millions of chickens, pigs and cows which are being “depopulated”?  It is beyond my comprehension that food is being thrown away at a time when there isn’t enough to go around.  

    Stark reality? Starvation has long been used as a weapon against humanity.

    As some of you know I’m very good friends with a chicken grower in AR. He has six chicken houses and a contract with Tyson to grow. I spoke to him yesterday. He said the normal turnaround after chickens leave his farm is 17-22 days. During that time they clean and disinfect the chicken houses to prepare for the next delivery of chicks. He was advised a couple of days ago that his next delivery would be 22-25 days. Interestingly enough he also said that under the terms of his contract with Tyson he will get paid whether or not he “grows” the chickens. Meaning, if they don’t deliver the chicks to him, he still gets paid.

    One other note of interest is that Tyson supplies all the chicks, as well as all the feed for the chickens.

  4. A very interesting article in Scientific American. An emergency room doc was considering the death rates for covid19 as compared to the annual influenza deaths. He started wondering where ‘all’ these flu deaths were? Obviously we see covid19 deaths galore. They are documented, seen and unfortunately very real. But he had never experienced flu deaths in numbers anywhere near the volume reported by the CDC. So he investigated. It turns out that annual flu statistics reported by the CDC are estimates, not real hard numbers. In actuality the true number of flu deaths on death certificates is much, much lower ranging from 3,500 to 15,500 per year. The CDC extrapolates their statistics based on formulas. So when we attempt to compare covid19 data to flu data we are comparing apples to oranges. Covid19 cases and deaths are actual hard numbers while the flu cases and deaths are derived values.
    The other side of this coin is that science is working to find the same statistical formulas for covid19. We know the hard patient data for covid19 but do not yet know how that translates into the unseen data. We have seen reports of some of this research.........   those trying to learn the numbers of infected as opposed to the numbers tested positive. But as yet we do not have that information clear.
    So - for the time being when attempts are made to compare covid19 to the flu use the flu data that compares........   it is not a 65,000 influenza death rate. That is a derived value. The actual top end reported death rate for the flu is 15,500 for one season. For covid19 this number is 55,000 in 7 weeks. That is pretty stark and sobering.

    While I appreciate your continued posts and contributions in the CV19 issues I respectfully submit the following. Almost all deaths are being classified as CV19 at this time.

    I am in the “vulnerable group”. Our family has undertaken extreme measures to keep me safe during this time.

    That being said if I fall victim to CV19 it is highly possible my death would be categorized “CV19”. Rightfully so.

    I’m not going to die any time soon from COPD (brought on by exposure to mold and mildew post Katrina). However, the probability that if I contract CV19 I will die is pretty high. In my opinion, my cause of death (if that happens) is CV19.

    When all you have is your image, that's what you do, "farm" out your name.

    Point is that if you are labeled as a loser there is really no sense in “farming” out your name. If you are a loser as suggested who would want to use your name?

    Hmm, fix the economy? A 4 time bankruptcy loser. The 5 bank CEO's involved with those bankruptcies said he didn't know how much money was going out verses how much money coming in. They did recommend that he farm out his name to make money. All of this information is  available on an older  PBS documentary.

    This is laughable. He’s such a loser that he can “farm” out his name. What kind of insanity is that? Where is Psychology Today when you need them? Too darn funny.

  7. Not quite: from Politico on 3/31 (and numerous other sources):

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, revealed on Tuesday that the White House coronavirus task force is seriously considering guidance that Americans wear masks to help thwart the rapid spread of COVID-19.


    But the country’s top infectious disease expert also acknowledged that such a directive has been complicated by the nationwide dearth of personal protective equipment.


    “The idea of getting a much more broad, community-wide use of masks outside of the health care setting is under very active discussion at the task force. The CDC group is looking at that very carefully,” Fauci told CNN.


    “The thing that has inhibited that a bit is to make sure that we don’t take away the supply of masks from the health care workers who need them,” he continued. “But once we get in a situation where we have enough masks, I believe there will be some very serious consideration about more broadening this recommendation of using masks.”


    And don't forget the Taskforce includes 21 other individuals. 

    Not sure what you mean by “not quite”. There was no recommendation from Fauci to wear masks up until a few weeks ago. In fact, at one point he was advising against it.

  8. Perhaps to live to fight another day in order to work from the inside to prevent a complete train wreck and I don’t recall that he was that late in recommending PPE.  If he called BS, he would’ve been gone.  It’s well known that within the Trump circle, advisors have to tread lightly to soothe Trump’s ego in order to be effective eventually where it matters. 

    How do you know these things? You have some kind of “insider” knowledge or did you draw these conclusions based on what you’ve read and heard. I’m just curious.

    Fauci was that late in recommending masks. He didn’t recommend them until the last week or two.

  9. Well really not political.... He seems to be the one who wants to save the day and plays down any other possible contributions.  So not political just one sided.
    He has the knowledge though wants to make sure that we follow the old guidelines and time lines, with no real urgency, you know like lives are in the balance.
    Annoying to watch.

    So, you have drawn these conclusions from watching the Task Force briefings or no?

  10. I can’t link to the original WaPo article but here is another report.  I know the Salon is left leaning but .........
    An interesting article in Psychology Today:

    Both are left leaning. Just browsed through them. Ugghhh.

  11. i will admit that i have watched zero press conferences. Even if i had, not being a doctor with training in this area, i wouldn’t know if Fauci was being factual. I’d give him the benefit the doubt because he knows more about it than i do -- but i’d be hoping that he is right not knowing that he is right. 
    Honestly, i gave up watching the news long ago -- i think each (for profit) network is talking to their target audience and trying to lead them to the conclusion that they want the listener to arrive at. Can’t recall the organization is that ranks each media outlet annually. Last I saw they had the AP and Reuters as the most accurate and least biased. They had CNN and Fox as equally biased; but gave a slight edge to CNN for accuracy, although they concluded that both presented their stories in a manner that led viewers toward a conclusion. 
    i find it a shame that we’re at the point of having to question everything. Politics sucks hard -- why do people embrace it so strongly? 

    It’s not just doctors at the Task Force press conferences. There are a wide range of attendees. Information is always better first hand, that way you can draw your own conclusions. Otherwise you are left to wallow through the BS being pushed by the media.

    Fauci has fishtailed on several issues including but not limited to the use of masks.

    In fact, I’ve even watched Cuomo’s press conferences. Watched him whine and complain about what he needed/wanted. Saw Trump step up and give him everything he “needed/wanted”. Then I heard Cuomo try to rip Trump apart for not giving him what he needed/wanted. Guess what,
    it had been delivered and Cuomo was clueless that it was already in the state’s possession. It’s disgusting.

    The reason people care or should care is because there is a long standing plot to convert this country to Socialism at best, Communism at worst. Folks need to pay attention and I mean really pay attention. They also need to realize that it is a privilege to vote and that privilege is slowly being taken away.

  12. Are you saying that Fauci profited somehow?

    Follow the money. I guarantee you the trail leads to Fauci and a few others involved.

    Honestly, look at what political leaders are trying to grab power in certain states, look at how certain leaders have padded the stimulus bills with their special interests...in fact holding the money hostage until they got what they wanted for their special interests. Look who keeps pushing the panic and fear. Yes, we should be concerned, but the media has pandered to the left and once again created so much decisiveness people can’t think logically. Look who wants to “reimagine” society. Look who said they were willing to crash the economy to get Trump out if office. I could go on and on but it’s probably pointless. Until people really start thinking and researching for their self it’s repeating the same thing expecting a different outcome. Hmmmm...the definition of insanity.

  13. If Trump is following the money, it is not bc he means to. He has his faults, and a lot of them, but he has proven too many times that is is not swayed by money or pressure. 
    Fauci is the one in the know. He knew from  the start that masks would help and distancing was key. 

    Exactly. Fauci is the one that is the expert. That’s why Trump brought him on board for the Task Force. Trump isn’t stupid. He may be crass, rude and obnoxious but he isn’t stupid. He’s figuring it all out.

  14. What I’ve seen from Fauci has been consistent, factual, and apolitical.  Not so from Trump - just rambling word salads, phoney gas-lighting self-congratulation, shifting blame, attacks on the press, and maybe worst of all, no compassion for the afflicted.

    Really? I guess we have not been watching the same Daily Task Force briefings.

  15. Darn Fauchi was instrumental in giving that wuhan institute of virology millions in recent years.
    He's got to go!

    I guess some folks glanced over this and the other sources reporting this. Fauci was the Director at the time 3.7 million dollars was dispersed to the lab in Wuhan and others during the Obama administration . $700,000 was donated under Trump’s administration. Notice that Trump pulled the plug on anymore funds to WHO until this tale can be unraveled. FOLLOW THE MONEY

  16. Christy, please don’t think that I’m trolling here.  Over the years on this forum, we’ve shared some laughs and I’ve known you to be an intelligent and compassionate person but I have to respectfully question comments like the one above.  I think your comment would be dead on accurate if applied to Trump.  Would you trust Trump over Fauci??

    A resounding YES! Follow the money.

  17. Just watched 60 minutes tonight about the Canadian corporation called Bludot which predicted in December where the covid 19 will hit with deadly accuracy. Canad was prepared at that time for the covid 19 and California got on the Bludot bandwagon later on.

    I think some Canadians may not agree with you.

  18. I'm not using hindsight. My Dad is a Medical Technologist. I grew up in a house learning about germs. 
    When they said masks weren't needed, I called bullshit.  When they said it wasn't airborne (transferable via aerosolization through breathing and talking), I called bullshit on that too. 
    Was the Spanish Flu/H1N1 a conspiracy too, you know, just to take out the young people?
    I'm saying they wasted almost six weeks. There is no way the likes of Fauci, Redfield, and Birx didn't know what was going to happen. Just like now, the experts are saying one thing, the politicians are saying something else.  

    I don’t believe you are correct in the aerosolization timeline. I know dental offices were among the earliest ordered to close, at least in our region.

    As far as masks go, there was a lot of concern on people making it worse, a false sense of security. In addition to concerns over “hoarding” of supplies needed by the medical
    professionals and first responders. First responders are still without PPE is some cases. I mean, look at the toilet paper hoarding as an example.

    I don’t trust Fauci and haven’t since the beginning. Follow the money.
