Blah blah blah lol. If you get the money $1000, spend it the way you want. Its a grand you didn't have before. Political or not, if we end up paying it back, whatever. If it's going to happen which its now looking like, use it or save it! If you are really against it I'm sure some of us in here will be happy to give you our address, we'll spend it for you lol.

This whole thing is ridiculous. The mortality rate doesn't justify all this manufactured hysteria.

My car could use a blade spoiler. I'm still chasing that 70s back.

I got into race drones because they're cheaper to mod so I might get a DJI digital FPV system too.

well that's an entirely different discussion, and no it doesn't.

The most interesting thing I have read about this came from Goldman Sachs investor / company briefing that basically said (without quite saying it like this) that even if 50% of the US got this virus, the mortality numbers overall for the year may not even change. Yes - 1M+ would die from this, but basically they are saying 3M die from flu / virus / disease / old age etc. and this may be contained within that number.
But that isn't a very PC thing to say or a PC position to take for a politician now is it??

Check your #s again.

Mortality will be between 2 and 4 million dead in the US if it goes unchecked, and these #s do not include "at risk" chronic medical conditions (diabetes, asthma, heart disease, etc. which have between 7-13% mortality each). That's quite a bit more than the 50k who die each year from the flu in the US.

Good idea. A doctor told me that staying in good shape is one of the few things you can do to improve your outcome if you get this virus.
As for me, I'll be giving my virus money right back to the federal government, I owe much more in taxes than whatever they'll give us.

I have a nephew and niece-in-law(?) who are a single income family. I suspect I will send any unexpected federal largesse to them.

not my numbers - just passing along the goldman sachs analysis summary for investors that I read. I am not buying the 50-70% estimates which are not based on any scientific analysis since we have almost no data on this virus, but the facts are it hasn't been seen higher than 1% of population getting it anywhere in the world yet. Time will tell there as testing is coming on line still and who knows how accurate reporting is from some of these countries.
