Hearing stories about lots of layoffs and cutting hours. Most everywhere reducing staffing by 25%, some up to 40%. I'm predicting customer service going way down. Longer lines at the cashier and players club; longer wait when machine needs service. Cash machines not restocked -- I got 18 one dollar bills the other day.

Also hearing about how any positive test among staff forces several other employees to stay home due to exposure. Employees are going to to be way more overworked than before the pandemic.

While I personally disagree with your mask belief that is not what I am objecting too.

You are making political statements

"OUR GOVERNMENT IS ENGAGED IN THE OUT AND OUT MURDER...." and other statement's you have made are of a political nature.

Keep it to the science. I don't want to start discussing what the government is trying to do. I don't want to start asking which government (I guess the global government of the world since masks are required in other countries as well). Etc.

See why this is becoming political because of your statements


Ho, boy, am I glad you phrased it like that. I hope I'm not redirecting this topic too far from its origin with my blabbering. I don't want to ruffle feathers or break rules. It seems there are some who agree with my stance. I will keep this purely scientific, and analytical, OK? I don't know if you are aware of what is going on here in my city of Livonia, Michigan. I can't YET prove that our governor Whitmer murdered all those old people in elderly care facilities and people in group homes, but we do know a lot of facts.

We know for a fact that she sighed executive orders mandating that all of those who tested positive be sent into quarantine. MANY were sent into in existing elderly care facilities housing normal, healthy, innocent elderly folks. We know that some of them were criminals, some were let out of jails/prisons across the state, again, all per these executive orders. We know that some were aggressive and beat up their roommates whilst infecting them. SADLY, we know for a fact that this is what DIRECTLY caused the huge wave of death that spiked up the initial numbers, driving us all into full blown panic.

It has been recently revealed that the government of Canada used a strict set of guidelines upon which they set their policies and procedures regarding the handing of their elderly in response to COVID-19. These procedures are described as being exactly like what was, and TO THIS DAY, IS STILL being done in Michigan, that is, to lock up sick people in close-quarters with the elderly, shut down all public access to these facilities, and wait for the bodies to fall. And fall they did, because these elderly had zero exposure to a brand new virus to which they had zero immunity. They died because they could not handle the viral load that was suddenly imposed upon them.

This includes my first cousin, who was locked up in a group home with infected roommates who were transferred in by the state of Michigan, and shipped off to the hospital at the first sniffle. He was drugged, tubed, tied, tortured, and aggressively ventilated. They gave up on him, and part of this was consideration of a possible shortage of vents, even though that hospital never approach their ventilator capacity. Never the less, the state force him into a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order, and had it signed by a surrogate of the state, after which they extubated him and then put him to sleep in the state run hospice, his death ruled as Covid-19. This took about 4 weeks or so, during which time my cousin never saw a face or held a hand. It was like boarding a space ship with everyone wearing space suits... to a man with mental deficiencies, like my cousin Chucky, this was pure torture... he fought and struggled every inch of the way.

Every statement I made above is absolutely true.

In Canada, the following paper was used as the exclusive basis for these guidelines...
https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejmsb2005114
Fair Allocation of Scarce Medical Resources in the Time of Covid-19
published on March 23, 2020, at NEJM.org.

Please read this paper... basically it's a preordained death-panel that dictates the extinction of elderly as a trade-off for the success of society.

This is nothing new, these decisions were already in place before the pandemic hit really hit... the paper wasn't written the day of the pandemic, and it wasn't the only one used to formulate these policies of trading-off old and/or non-contributory people, like those with mental disabilities and/or PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS. Read the paper if you think I'm making any of this up.

Am I being scientific thus far?
The difference between zero and the smallest possible number? It doesn't matter; once you cross that edge, it might as well be the difference between zero and 1. The difference between infinity and reality? They are mutually exclusive.

Virus could be on other larger particles floating in the air, so even a scarf could provide some protection.

Axelwolf, congratulations on your newfound progressivism.

I do find Vernon Coleman's self-presentation a bit confusing, however. If he's been a self-proclaimed transvestite for 25 years, and proudly so, why not wear women's clothes for the videos? I suppose it can be argued that he's shooting for gender neutral clothing in the videos.

Anyway, congrats, Axel, on holding your tongue on the clothing choices of Mr. Coleman. It would be great if everyone ignored how people dressed as a prism through which to view their expertise.



Hey guys, I honestly never knew this about Coleman, I just started listening to him and checking out the articles he referenced to make sure he wasn't full of it. I never knew about his sexuality, nor should I care... I'm glad I was able to view him in a purely scientific light. The article I quoted certainly never strayed from pure science. I will still continue to listen to and respect him, even after you have pointed out something that, in these days, I would think inconsequential. What does the LGBT corner think about this issue being raised?

This is going to be the new normal.

Businesses opening and closing and reopening and reclosing.

Robust economy and lives saved from depression and starvation and reopening the economy. Nope, not gonna happen

I think it depends on what part of the country you live in. From what I hear from colleagues, the mid-west is suffering along with the East coast in employment quite badly. I'm 20 minutes outside of NYC and they're not even considering opening up to the public until mid July.

Perhaps on the West coast it is less severe, but still feeling the pinch. My uncle is an accountant in West Covina, CA and he's not seen much uptick in individuals consulting him for tax advice with the deadline less than 30 days away. Also, sports entities like the NHL and NBA are postponing training camps due to the surge in positive Covid test results for players.

Zoom works in anywhere around the world and surely helps some people make some money during the war of covid19.

Before lives return to some resemblance of normality, people need to make use of ZOOM.
Zoom enables people
1) to get prescriptions from doctors to cure illness such as gout, flu, VDs, etc...
2) to do tax returns with CPAs, or to file bankruptcy with Esqs.
3) to do shopping on line, and to do a baby shower with relatives & friends,
4) to teach classes so that students can graduate in a timely manner, and
5) to coach simpletons some Martingale System for $1,000 per lesson upfront!

Mr. Stickler, google the best foot doctor who will cure your gout.

If you can not casino-hop on Las Vegas Strip because of gout, do a zoom with the best foot doctor. Ask her to prescribe MetyL-PRED-NI-SOLONE (Met Toel Pred Nee Sah Lone). Within 6 days you will be able to casino-hop among Vegas casinos. Just like flu, gout will pop up again if you don't take care of yourself (i.e, you need to keep away from red meats that cause the flare up of gout).
