    At this point I would vote for a dog to be president. If Biden is that dog..he will get my vote. I want someone who won't lie directly to the people on live TV and promote the things that are getting promoted. I know every president does but I need a little less lies in my life right now.

    It's rampant on social media. Look at facebook. People want to be right, at any cost. I also believe there's a percentage of people that welcomes an apocalypse and gives them a mulligan on their miserable existence, as long as it doesn't effect anyone they love. The whole "some men just want to watch the world burn" theory. World collapses? Good, I won't be kept down by the man in the new world. Scary times.

    To make a little bit light of it: we know who's gonna panic when the real zombie-pocalypse comes.

    Interesting change of pace with the religion discussion.

    I don't know why people limit themselves to just one deity, though. I'm cool with all the Gods. Jesus, Allah, the little elephant woman from Hinduism, Bill Belichick, whoever the LGBTQ community prays to, etc.

    Gods recognize gods.

    So you're ok with different lies then? One who's not as overt about it? As you said, they all do it. Don't misunderstand, I am not trying to pick a political fight. Just pointing out that they all suck and they will all lie to us when the truth will do a better job.

    But it's so odd - the president didn't cause the virus, so I don't get what they're trying to defend. Even my dad (a staunch republican) thinks the virus is just some political thing by the democrats because of this talk so he's not concerned, despite my pleas for him to stay home.

    Now, don't get me wrong, could this have been handled better? (This isn't the cue for everyone to go down that pre-virus road) Of course, hindsight makes everyone an expert. But I truthfully don't think anyone saw it reaching this scale and I doubt he did either, given how we've made it through other past events, or at least the expectations were hoping it wouldn't be. But either way, the reaction by people not being happy by progress is just disturbing.

    (Again, this isn't the cue for everyone to go down that pre-virus woulda-coulda and president bashing road, please.)

    And this is why networks are not airing the press conferences. Because they are misleading the public about what is really going on.

    Sorry - I meant to respond to this much sooner but then I lost and and had to comb thru the whole thread to find it again.

    First off, let me say I hope like hell your wife test turns out ok. (Actually I hope it turns out negative but I see your point about being ambivalent. I just hate to see anyone sick. And, selfishly (I’d be lying if I didn’t mention it) I hate to think of her patients having been exposed, too.

    I’m wondering, too, how is it that the Hospice your wife works for did not have her tested immediately?

    The Hospice I am enrolled in says they test anyone with the slightest symptom immediately. They also say they’ve only tested 3 people, too, so I’m pretty suspicious of their promises. Anyhow, MrP and I have been arguing with them for a month now and just yesterday we finally got permission to forego weekly in-home RN visits and substitute Face Time visits, instead. Safer for everyone, no?

    Hope your wife feels better. And that you, too, stay well.
