    He’s not wrong at all, though. You think anyone finds this virus and the non-stop news cycle about it refreshing? Who? Just because we’re posting about it doesn’t mean we aren’t tired of it. It just means that we literally don’t have much else to do. For example, I’m still employed but work is slooooooow right now since revenues have declined. We need revenue in order to fund our projects. So, because it is slow, I stay by my computer, assign tasks that need to be done, hold phone conferences/eMeetings/etc, and post here and look at Instagram in my spare time.

    I actually sense disappointment from some people in the media when a report seems to indicate that things aren't getting a lot worse.

    Not really. It hinges on the moderate vote. That’s why the Democrats wanted Biden over Bernie even though Biden’s mind is literally rotting away in his skull.

    You forgot fact C

    You’re sick of this virus too and still talking about it

    The only difference is, you won’t admit it

    Look, I can take attacks on my posts all day. We’re just posting words on an internet board and it’s not personal

    That’s because they likely are disappointed. If it bleeds, it leads. When the amount of deaths decreases by the day and when the curve would be very much on its way to flattening if not for New York, the ratings are sure to suffer. Lower ratings are not good for business in the “news” industry.

    Too early for the political points. Pour another drink instead.

    Me too. Early indicators seem to point that we have already peaked and this week may actually be the come down period. Also, let's be honest, if NY had a clue from the get go and did what Baker has done here in MA, this whole thing would have been more of a blip than this national firestorm.

    You underestimate moderates, and vindictive Bernie Bros.

    Both are true.

    You are correct that many Democrats preferred Biden because of his appeal to moderate voters, the same strategy that Democrats used to win back the House in 2018, KY-GOV, and LA-GOV (hold).

    That said, evangelicals are Trump's strongest cohort and he'll need them in droves in 2020, while hoping for similar lack of enthusiasm/fracturing on the left a la 2016.

    Unfortunately there seems to have been a clue embargo down South so I expect we will see a second wave.

    ANY individual that feels any disappointment if & when this virus stops controlling us, is a rotten to the core person that deserves no peace or happiness for eternity

    And that’s putting it nicely

    I've been taking hydrochloroquine for a while now, due to being in a country with Malaria issues. No side effects aside from getting more red than tan when out in the sun when I first got here. Hoping I didn't build an tolerance to it.

    The prospect of going back to the States is weird. I don't actually have a home right now. My fiance was in the same situation when she went to stay with family in New York, so we're probably going to camp out in a hotel until this thing is done. Fortunately, the real estate market in Northern Virginia is so expensive that staying in a hotel is almost as cheap or cheaper.

    Getting from my landing spot to the DC area is another challenge. I hear cars with out of state plates are being pulled over, and I'm still rolling with an Arizona tag.

    The thought of going back to the States is good since my father may have COVID (awaiting results) and my family may need me at some point, but it's also...strange. It's almost simpler to stay here.
