    Good morning, here is today's thread. Yesterday's thread was sort of a train wreck so let's do our best to make today's better. Otherwise, same rules, you know the deal :cool:

    Why is the health and human services watch dog being attacked for reporting what is happening?

    No - he's really not. Just trying to navigate my way through this like everyone else. ;)

    Speaking of which, how are things in your neck of the woods?

    NY is completely overreporting CV deaths, as there is a financial incentive to do so. Where did all the heart attack, flu, cancer, and pneumonia deaths go? Did all these afflictions get cured by CV?

    Well it looks like all deaths are being coded as Corona deaths. So basically someone goes into the hospital with diabetes, one lung, cancer, and let's say high blood pressure, and congestive heart failure, dies, is asymptomatic of Corona but positive for Corona.... This person is reported as a Corona death. Have to pump up those mortality rates anyway we can folks! And this is from the scarf lady doctor yesterday....

    If there’s ANY truth to that, it’s unacceptable

    If our media does the right thing, they’ll look at historical numbers on those causes of death and show us if the records are being falsified

    That’s something we all want to know

    Going to need some sort of links containing proof about this type of accusation, and not just a "multiple people have said it" response...? :confused:

    This is so strange. No one is hoping for an apocalypse. We're fearing the worst but hoping for the best and we're looking forward to when it's over. Or at least that's my mindset. This constant bickering between two sides over the severity is just really annoying. I don't understand the people annoyed with those who want to plan for the worst to try and at least be prepared. Instead, they label it an "overreaction".

    Forget politics. I'm pretty sure the ones who are dealing with it directly (the doctors, nurses, medical staff, first responders, etc.) aren't going to be disappointed if the worst doesn't happen. And I'd like to think most people would be able to get on the same page and at least be in agreement that they're the only ones who really matter at this point.

    This might be relevant to the times as grieving doesn’t always refer to someone dying

    The 5 stages of grief and loss are:
    1. Denial and isolation;
    2. Anger;
    3. Bargaining;
    4. Depression;
    5. Acceptance.

    People who are grieving do not necessarily go through the stages in the same order or experience all of them.
