    tate reeves only cares what his biggest donors and trump think. I’m sure his biggest donors are more worried about the money they are losing then a writer dying.

    did we just learn that lower tier bert thinks people can stay on unemployment for the rest of their lives?

    does lower tier bert also think people who get laid off right now are able to go right out there and find work again?

    on the ex-pat discussion:

    1. New Zealand - they have a questionnaire you can fill out online to easily find out if you are qualified for a visa there. I myself am considered a "highly qualified" visa applicant. So that's nice.
    2. Basically anywhere in Western Europe. I work in higher education and there are a million campus affiliations with US schools. I speak passable Italian, so I guess that would be my #2 specifically, even though Italy has its own host of problems.

    One of my roommates from college's dad is a big time donor (bag man) and he was at a barbecue with David Johnson a week and a half ago, he's scared as shit. They own a land moving company and are rich as hell but they're right there outside of Oxford. At some point old people have a reckoning with reality when someone they know gets it. It shows them that their money doesn't protect them from death and they are more susceptible to succumbing to it than others. These people aren't wall street executives or hedge fund managers, they're CEO's of chicken farms and retired lumber yard owners. They love money and will abuse the use of migrant workers in their factories and plants but they're on the ground with this. They see it every day. They're not up holed up in their penthouse or on their private island watching the news, they live in mansions outside of college towns and farming communities. They build houses for their children and grandchildren to live next to them. Its real to them and "if a good guy like David can get it, its coming for me."

    This is what will happen across the south eventually. Even the most wealthy conservatives will know someone who died from it and realize its real and they're not immune to it. Their money won't protect them. As my Grandfather who was born and raised in Seminary, Mississippi always says "You never see a hearse followed by a Uhaul."

    What’s meaningful about the denominator?

    If 300 million people get it and 20 million go to the hospital and 2 million people die, or if 100 million people get it and 20 million go to the hospital and 2 million people die- how is the effect different?

    I just found a full bottle of hand sanitizer under our bed. My wife is doing a skype call with all of her co-workers and I handed it to her and she showed her coworkers. Immediately one of them said they'd pay us $50 for it. We have a few so I may tulip mania this thing.

    Not really, I'm going to give it to my neighbor across the street who is 70 and I buy groceries for

    The lengths people go to be obtuse on this board is insane.

    The number of people who are going to get it isn’t the number in question, it’s how many will die. Fuck.

    Accurate death rate = better understanding of how many people will die
