One of my conservative Facebook contacts just posted this:

Survival of what? I'm not even sure where he's getting that number from.

Even if that is the coronavirus survival rate, a 1.5% death rate is HUGE.

I don't think he gets it, because he also posted this along with the above.



Just a bit dated, given we're now at 2.4 million cases, 169,000 deaths, and 210 countries (and rising).  :smirk:

Its also very misleaading thats just the rate of death for people who get it not how infectious it is. For example on that chart you may see Ebola at 40% mortality and think that's worse then COVID. It is NOT here's how many people got Ebola during the outbreak and died The Ebola outbreak in West Africa was first reported in March 2014, and rapidly became the deadliest occurrence of the disease since its discovery in 1976.

In fact, the epidemic killed five times more than all other known Ebola outbreaks combined.

More than 21 months on from the first confirmed case recorded on 23 March 2014, 11,315 people have been reported as having died from the disease in six countries; Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, the US and Mali.

The total number of reported cases is about 28,637.


Anyone comparing the two are risking people's lives so they can sound like they know what they're talking about

That's clearly not the coronavirus survival rate.  In the U.S., the deaths are more than half the amount of people who have recovered.  Worldwide, deaths are a quarter of the amount of recovered.  Any way you look at it, that's a hell of a lot more than 1.5% death rate.

Everyone I know hates are world leaders. Why doesn't everyone in the country just March onto Washington and lock those people up? We could seriously end this shit anytime we want but we choose not to. We're so programmed to be their slaves that we forget that we have the numbers. It seems like it always takes a few hundred years before people finally get pissed off enough to fight.

You're incorrect, unfortunately.  Our leaders were voted in and keep getting re-elected.  If everyone hated them, that wouldn't happen.

Yeah they're playing us like a fiddle. Most of these politicians grow up with money and go to ivy league schools. They look down on us and consider us inferior. They decide they want power so they become politicians. The billionaire class offers them a ridiculous amount of money to do their bidding so they can continue to be on top. Yes I think we need to end that shit!!!! Bernie straight up said this is what's happening on the Joe rogan podcast and we all know it. There has to be a way to stop this shit! Just look at a company like Amazon! They destroyed nearly every business and pay little too no taxes!! We have bill fucking gates going on television as if hes one of are leaders talking about mandatory vaccines . He runs a fucking software company for god sakes! These people control everything!!

This is why I believe voting is kind of pointless. At the end of the day Bernie, joe and trump are the same thing. Just people trying to fuck us. That my opinion.....

Not really.  People aren't working now.  If they reopen, and people refuse to go back to work, those people are in exactly the same position as they were.  Ultimately, the decision to reopen is really the decision to ALLOW businesses to reopen.




The federal government can cut off aid to people who refuse to go back. So they can force all the lower classes back, but the people who can afford a few months with no income will be able to sit it out at home.

Which, of course, begs the question: If your God is so strong, why is the U.S. leading the world in deaths and infections?

Protesting an individual officer vs protesting the government. Nice mental gymnastics enlil



So, you literally believe that protesting an order given by a single, unelected individual is wrong, but protesting an elected official's order is right?

Okay...I ORDER YOU TO GIVE ME ALL OF YOUR MONEY.  DON'T PROTEST, NOW.

Seriously, dude.  People have a right to protest, but the right wing always seems to want to hurt people with their protests.  If they can't drive a dodge charger into a crowd of people, they'll just infect a bunch.  Why is it always violence with the right?
