    It is beyond pathetic to watch hacks try to put blame on Democrats for a response that was entirely run and controlled by the Trump Administration.
    Are you better off than you were four years ago?

    I feel for you because we're kind of in the same boat. Our plan is to just keep washing our hands, social distance and wear a mask to the store...for at least the next two years.

    The economy won't come back until the people do. I read somewhere that after the 1918 Spanish Flu...it took two years for some people feel safe before returning to normal. But it was never normal again for those who lost their lives or their loved ones.

    Numbers are not going to go down until we have a vaccine. The virus is not that contagious nor that deadly. Think more like the flu. So many causes of death and we don't shut down for those.
    Auto accidents, still driving. Swimming pool accidents, still allowing pools to be built, the Flu every year, Smoking and we are selling cigerettes, cancer, heart disease, the list is long and deadly but we keep moving forward, protect ourselves as best we can and live our lives. There are countries that haven't shut down and their numbers are no worse than ours. Our number of cases per population number is about the same as other countries, its proving to be about the same as influenza.
    The only conclusion that makes sense is fear tactics and an attempt by democrats to heap blame on Trump and gain an edge in the upcoming election. Putting 35 million out of work will come back to haunt the democrats.
    Need to go back to normal and treat the ones who become ill.

This is medicine and common sense, so one hopes that the usual trolls and flamers will stay away but that is unlikely. So, what do you think?
    Some areas, no, other areas, Hell yes. As you said it is just the situation, unfortunately some think if they ignore the virus it will magically go away, mother nature has a way of proving we sometimes over inflate our place in the universe.
