    Claims this whole virus thing is way overblown, doesn't wear mask, gets the virus, gives it to his wife, wife gets vented, it's all ok if she dies as God forgives him. Wants to let you know the virus really is a thing.

    That's the image that comes to mind when I think of our friend Bubba.

          I like this "fable"!

          The Lion & the Ass


          One day as the Lion walked proudly down a forest aisle, and the animals respectfully made way for him, an Ass brayed a scornful remark as he passed.

          The Lion felt a flash of anger. But when he turned his head and saw who had spoken, he walked quietly on. He would not honor the fool with even so much as a stroke of his claws.
          Do not resent the remarks of a fool. Ignore them.

            I believe our esteemed president boasts that he is a "germaphobe."

              Thanks for that Rock Rat. Obviously catching COVID19 can be a hair raising experience. Imagine what it would do to Trump. Oh my. That is an interesting image.

                A most appropriate reminder Rock Rat. This pandemic can be fatal to many who are elderly or have certain medical conditions. Traveling about infecting others is just an indication of someone who has no regard for others in society and thinks only of themselves. Unfortunately, we have a lot of them in our society so any that are at risk will have to watch out for themselves. It's still out there and its still fatal in some. If you are at risk, watch out for yourself and watch out for Bozo.

                  Well, well, well... looks like Rat and Whiney-Nine owe all of us an apology for their promoting of fake news and projections. Take a look at this trend chart from the CDC

                      Not sure what you are trying to show here Pig. That there is no pandemic? Top chart shows everyone stopped going to the hospital around the third week of March. Yup. Ask anyone. No one goes to the hospital anymore unless they are feeling like they might die or they aren't worried about catching something because they've already got it. Think you have the flu, best stay home.

                      Bottom chart shows spike of the 3 combined deaths around second or third week of April, yup, peaked at around 4500 per day. Seasonal fluctuations encompassed by two black lines. Bad flue season in 18.

                      There are many very well done charts if you've an interest. Many use the one culled from data at Johns Hopkins. http://91-divoc.com/pages/covid-visualization/

                      I guess the only sorry from me is I don't understand what you are trying to show.

                        I'm not sure what you are presenting either Pighunter. The flu chart is presenting age breakout for incidents of the flu. They are not Covid-19 and the dispersion across age groups is about what we expect. Here you see the effect of most people older than 50 getting the vaccine because most strains of flu do have a more serious effect on older humans. I think the second chart is showing that the percent of deaths attributable to flu, pnemonia, AND Covid have been well within expected epidemic threshholds until recently anyway. When it comes to this data, we will never know what it COULD have been without drastic control measures and treatment measures used across the world over the past few months. What are you saying? Are you implying that the Pandemic level of transmission and mortality among aged humans has never been there? Or are you saying that our overt actions to contain the Covic-19 pandemic have been successful?

                          What I'm seeing in these graphs is that we're well past the worst of both the Flu season and Covid-19. Therefore, governments should lift all restrictions and leave it up to individuals to social distance, wear masks, etc. as they deem necessary for their personal situations.

                          I got that data directly from the CDC to show Rock Rat that he's crying wolf. Now he's throwing shade on the CDC's numbers because they don't agree with his preconceived notions.

                            That's just pretty evident pighunter.
                            I guess if they just don't want to see progress and prefer gloom and doom....?

                            I just don't understand how an individual can have high praise for the CDC because it's Gov't run, then turn around and decry the CDC for being dolts.
                            So which is it? Smart or stupid?

                              Pig and Blub I have to say that trying to make some kind of ideological argument out of the pandemic is silly. Spin just doesn't work. You can cherry pick numbers until you are blue in the face, but the virus doesn't care. Most everyone who is collecting data is doing so in good faith, it's only those who present data and try to spin it that make things seem one way or another.

                              There are a couple ways you all can help. You can not catch or infect other people, be a responsible contributing member of society, and ease up danger to the waitresses, nurses and others you put in harms way, or you can get the virus and help with herd immunity and perhaps ease up the burden on Social Security and welfare.

                              I'll wait, they might well get a vaccine before too long, and your small contribution to herd immunity might help me out, thanks. (Assuming you care nothing for all those you endanger)
