Stanford Doctors Calls for Ending Full-Blown Lockdowns

New cases mean nothing. Death is the concern, and Texas is a LONG way from the 11,000 deaths from The Flu in 2018-2019. There was no alarm about that much loss of life to keep the economy up and running, so I would think that same number (or more) would be acceptable this go around. We are 4 months in on this and the Flu was for a total time of 8 months. Many hospitals in Texas basically shut down in anticipation of many serious cases from this virus and people gave up appointments of other health concerns and procedures. Those numbers of serious cases never manifested themselves.Now, some of those people need to have those procedures, or they might become one of those dead stats. Texas was/is ready and can handle the situation. so now they are getting back to opening up the state. Whether you agree with that , makes no difference. Texas was settled by people who faced danger and death most days of their lives and fought for and won their independence. Texans are strong, not weak. Weak people can stay home. No one will be forced to get out of their comfort zone. 

 

Just checked in Texas and found this. Hopefully this is from being better prepared than some. Maybe that is the secret, being prepared, or leadership, or both. (one probably complements the other)

Today in Texas there are 15,852 Active Cases, 17,622 RECOVERED Cases, and just 948 deaths. That is something to celebrate, compared to the 2018 flu season ! 2,000 more recovered than current cases ! WOW !

You know, I've followed your posts for quite a while, and I think you have a  ……………………………………………………….. EDITED BY MOD 5. I have deleted your content because how negative it was including a four letter swear word.  If you had not included the swear word I might have only suggested that rather than saying how wrong something is. that you also show what the answer should have been

Texas has the third lowest 'test rate per capita' in the nation.... 48th out of 50.   No test, no find.

Actually, JB, those are old totals from Yesterday. Today's totals show 15, 977 Active and 18,440 Recovered. 973 Fatalities. So, about 2,500 more recovered than currently have the CV. Sounds really impressive. Those totals will probably make a few unhappy that will personally attack you, but most of us are pleased by the positive progress results. I pray it continues.

History is replete with examples of people who gave up their freedom for the illusion of security and ended up with neither.

Do you even have the capability to see the irony in your example.  Because the id%ot who drew the cartoon sure doesn't.

History is replete with examples of the power of fear and ignorance, to which even the great can fall prey.

History is also replete with the horror of underaction: Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.

No, what I see is a cartoon depicting a man playing with his daughter away from others being harassed by one of these CV Nazis who BTW isn't wearing their mask properly.  Why don't you explain the irony for all of us?

You do know people are being openly encouraged to rat on their neighbors, yes?  That is what we are being reminded of with this cartoon

And what I see in your response is a tendency to personally attack because you don't agree with the opinion being expressed by the cartoonist and myself in posting it.  Try and remember everyone who doesn't buy your point of view doesn't necessarily lack capability OR is an id%ot.

You just proved my point.  "CV Nazis".  So you're comparing some of your fellow citizens to "Nazis" because they are listening to health care professionals and might be concerned for their well-being.  You may disagree, but to equate people you disagree with as the "Nazis" is childish and reveals a person with a total lack of self-awareness and irony, not to mention empathy.

Wow...I remember a character in a popular TV show being called the "Soup Nazi" and I don't recall any uproar over that.

Pappy, things change and people change and society changes. I too can remember when a lot of things were called something that sooner or later.... and probably even then!... were offensive. Words such as 'Redskin', 'Jews', 'Jap', 'Wop' not to mention the n-word were thrown about without questioning. Today, not so much fortunately.

Thanks for the lesson in civility. I'm sure you meant well.

dpends how one uses it.

I think it more "dpends" on whether one wants to be outraged or offended which usually depends on whether one likes or dislikes the speaker.

Bingo.  Yes the outrage around here is pretty selective.  :D 

Some here have forgotten or choose to ignore that informing on one's neighbors was very common and strongly promoted in Nazi Germany, and indeed it is a a very strong characteristic of totalitarianism in general.

So if you had good reason to suspect that your neighbor was beating and abusing their child,  you would consider it none of your business and not bother to contact the proper authorities?

In case "Yo Mama" never told you, phony outrage sticks out like a sore thumb.

My mother, brother and I were turned into the Nazi town commandant  as Jews by "neighbours" but fortunately I  had a big mouth even then at the age of 2 1/2. I had only seen fotos of my father who had been taken away by the Gestapo and sent to a work camp in France. Any foto of a man i called papa, so I pointed behind him where there was a foto of Hitler and I called Hitler papa so he sent us home instead of to a death camp.
