2009 under Obama - from CDC - Swine flu - 60.8 million cases in USA - 274,304 hospitalizations - 12,469 deaths - nothing shutdown.

Coronavirus currently 46,000 cases in USA ... The entire economy of the USA is basically shutdown.
Not only is the economy shut down but a big scoop of socialism is being dumped on us.

It is amazing how quick Americans are to give up their rights when in fear.

There were several on this very forum who did the same thing...

I was thinking we were a solid decade out from anything like full on socialism or Rev War Part Deuce, but I'm starting to re-assess my estimate.

With him being 71, he is firmly in the high risk of fatality group.

I had to verify these numbers and they are factual. Just looking at the numbers and not looking at names or party. Something worked in 2009 and is not working in 2020. I drove around yesterday and came back with the feeling, that Americans will never recover from this bankruptcy. Chapter 7, 13 and 11 bankruptcy will make a lot of lawyers rich. Millions of Americans will be homeless. The trillion dollar spending bill. Uncle Sam will want his money back, when they file taxes next year. Glad, we made the decision to keep our club open, but no meetings or matches. May head out today to ring steel and punch paper. :fire

What "worked" was everybody did not lose their cookies. This thing has taken on a life of it's own.

Maybe this will be the first of many! Hold China responsible for economic losses. Hopefully other western nations will get on board and push the suit to the World Court. ;-)

With North Korea being their lapdog we'll likely be hearing from them next. A lot of people just don't understand the geopolitics. North Korea doesn't do ANYTHING that hasn't been blessed by Beijing. China's next move might be even more costly, and the evidence is quite clear that they tried to cover-up the outbreak well before it got out of China.

Make 'em pay now to help deter their next move like maybe a more provocative missile test by North Korea. ;-)

Didn't really notice any change in Houston from yesterday to today. However, I can get used to the no traffic. Wow. zoomed down the Southwest Freeway at rush hour, with no one on the roads. The police are out not stopping people violating the stay at home order, but stopping people for speeding.

My little brother was exposed tonight. He's a paramedic. He was transporting a patient who had it and died en route. They aren't going to quarantine him because "if they quarantined everyone who has been exposed, they won't have anyone to work"

Thousands of health care workers are exposed every day and don't get quarantined. Was he not wearing a mask of some sort? Most health care workers I see on TV are wearing some form of protection. Actually, all of them so far. I am sure he will be fine but my thoughts and prayers for his safety go out.
