Quoted from cottonm4:

Ugly numbers.
China has zero new cases.
USA looks like it could surpass France. US recovery rate not very good compared to France. Actually, the US death rate to recovery rate is abysmal.

But the US has the best health care system in the world

My brother has phoned me from L.A. they are in house lock down for a month.

The game show host said today...[quoted image]

I think he’s more like a used car salesman than a game show host now. Or maybe Ron poppeil.

When he talks I think I’m trapped in an infomercial.

I learned as a child is that ANYONE can become president. I now have proof that those teachers were correct.

Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

Democrats wanted to tank the economy and make health care the main election topic. I’m doing so, they created widespread panic by exaggerating the threat. Well....it’s gonna backfire on them.

Lmao!

Perfect satire. Yes, this is what Fox News is likely saying. Well done!

#1661 1 year ago

He was called a racist for banning travel from China while in the middle of impeachment hearings. Looks like the best move of the 21st century so far.

Where are the moderators to stop all the political talk here?

You got it. One big plot with Hollywood, the media, China and the rest of the world to dethrone someone. Who told you about it? It’s supposed to be kept a secret.

It’s not a happy apple but a logo from an old company!

Lmao Canada has the best health system. Incompetence is rampant, myself and immediate family have more than 4 stories about medical malpractice alone. I'd take the US system in a heartbeat, always had top shelf care and compassion anywhere we've been treated.

Until you were bankrupted by a major surgery your insurance wouldn't pay for.

Quoted from Tranquilize:

And then subjected to the worst care in the world from the newest doctor because you're known as a non-payment in the system.

Feel so bad for these folks

#1673 1 year ago

For sure but up here you'll die waiting for the surgery. 2 year waits just for consults then another year for appointment IF they don't misdiagnose you. At least you're alive to enjoy the bankruptcy.

#1674 1 year ago
Quoted from rwmech5:

Unless you are poor or your insurance just told you to hose off.
4 stories? How many hours do you have for me to regale you with the medical mayhem that I've watched in the USA?
How about I just talk about my wife? She has a heart defect. Undiagnosed, because she grew up poor. All through college and married life, no money for a cardiologists, even while the arrhythmia episodes became more pronounced and harder to control.
Finally got health insurance through work, and her cardiologist was pissed.
"How the hell was this not diagnosed when it started as a child?! It's going to kill you!"
She was finally able to get the heart surgery she needed for decades. It caused permanent damage that could have been avoided, and we are watching closely to jump to open heart surgery the moment she gets any worse.
That is how the US system works. Or, rather, doesn't.

Sorry to hear about your wife and nobody should be left out due to funding for sure. My 14 year old son inhaled a plastic water bottle cap, we took him to the ER got told he had asthma and sent home. 1 year, 67 drs appointments and 2 bags full of steroids,inhalers and antibiotics finally got referred to our children's hospital and they rushed him in for emerg surgery and managed to pull it out. Wife carries it in her purse.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Media are heroes.

Yes absolutely, its not the medical staff working 36 hours a day , or the researchers working feverishly to find new anti viral drugs for this. or the parents who suddenly find themselves unemployed trying to find ways to make ends meet. its the talking heads who tell us what to think. They read stuff so swell off the teleprompters that it must be true. Everyone raise your Koolaid glasses and toast -"to the media"

Sounds like a fuck up to me, one that would happen in any system. Wait times suck ass here for sure. I'm on a 13 month wait for an MRI right now. But... I've had yearly checkups since birth. I've been triaged to see a specialist when I really needed to. Takes me a week to see my GP as often as I like. I can request extra Bloodwork etc if I want. My wife had her appendix in a trash can and was zipped up and home in 16 hours, starting at 230am. It sucks in a lot of ways, not so much in others.

There are many heroes silly. I don’t live in a world where there’s only “one person alone” who can fix it.

Media, health care, grocery store, pharmacy, and retail workers, food processing...plenty of heroes to go around.

Be glad none of you are in Thailand. Their first responders are all volunteers!

So if the delivery driver has it, how does people staying in their house gonna be safe?

Or the cashier wearing gloves to protect themselves handling everyone’s cash and cards and food and drinks?

Everyone will be exposed eventually. False sense of security

#1691 1 year ago

It was calm and measured in here for a bit and then all the sudden angry. I personally think there are good people on both sides, both sides some very fine people.

How. Many. Times.

the idea is to SLOW IT DOWN.

Come on man. Help us help you. Please.

Do you really hate all of us that much that you want 3 percent of us dead? We may disagree on stuff but we aren’t bad people! We all like pinball!

You do raise a good point. It’s very difficult. In China, they have been leaving dinner 6 feet away from you. You pick it up. You’ve already paid via credit card online or on the phone. They are constantly checking the temperature of both the cooks and the delivery person.

We just have to do the best we can to get through this. TOGETHER.

I know that sounds tough but let’s just try. Please.

Well yeah if occasionally the car salesman told a customer “I know nothing and why am I here?” or Ron Poppeil had turrets where he would suddenly yell out “I don’t believe in any of this garbage”...then babysitters would jump in and say... “No no no, now you go out and get it right next time, understand?” then yeah I could see the comparison.

You wash your hands or sanitize after the interaction. Throw out packaging, wash your hands/sanitize. Clean off things that come from other people. Not rocket surgery.

When the cook has it and sneezes on your food?

Just saw this addressed in an interview. You can ingest it and it’s harmless to your gi system.

Anything else you negative nelly?

I wish I could show the video that is on youtube. Comedian Bill Maher is interviewing some senator. At one point the senator says you don't have to take an IQ test to be a senator. And then he realized what he said and his smile turned into a frown.

I guess we can just change the title of the thread to "COVID political trashing thread". Seems like every other post is someone trying to out do the other.

It was civil earlier in the day.
