I think you completely missed my point. I disagree with BG and don't think they created it.
What are you disagreeing with me about?
OK, got it. I think that BG was simply referring to a more or less known fact that the Chinese government has a reputation for less than humane/ethical way of treating their prisoners, like perhaps using them to test a fast tracked vaccine. Granted, the US prison system is no shining example of anything considered humane, but I'd hope that medical experimentation isn't part of what's going on here.
This stuff has always been a rich fodder for chilling SiFi - the Ludovico Technique from Clockwork Oragane comes to mind.
New Hampshire just reported 16,000 unemployment insurance applications in the past three days. That is the tip of the iceburg.
No the USG saves that sort of thing for their enlisted peopleSorry, my apologies. I misinterpreted your comment and read way too far into it then. Hard to keep track of who stands where on some of these issues.
Yea, upon re-reading I see that as well.
Well here we go.
"Vail Resorts Expects a Loss of $180 to $200 Million Due to COVID-19"
We are committing economic suicide so it does not matter how many seasons these areas operate. We're going to see tons of bankruptcies in all industries.Keep in mind Vail has got business coming in from elsewhere, its not just ski-related. A lot of their resorts have 4-season operations.
Globally there will 10’s of millions dead from economic devastation. This is the worst mis-reaction hot take in history.
All well and good but it's not just 60+ year olds who are dying. We just had a 52 year old die yesterday in Massachusetts so ageism doesn't necessarily work in this case. Yes they are more vulnerable but there are a lot of factors to take into consideration.My thought exactly. Tell the vulnerable to hunker down, deliver them food and supplies, and let everyone get sick and then get better.
