f you consider the fact that Human Immunodeficiency Deficiency Virus has been around almost 40 years and still no cure, only treatment. Covid 19 has a domino effect, it attacks the lungs first, which causes distress in the kidneys and liver, which causes problems in the blood stream, then the heart, then say hi to Jesus.
The big problem is, with all the 1000 mutations on a genetic level, medical science can’t figure out why so many people recover, and why so many people die…
Thanks for your comment,
Stay well

NYC actually consists of FIVE counties.


#284

Consider my post modified to reflect the 5 boroughs. I misinterpreted the JHU tracker which breaks cases down to county and assumed when it referred to NYC it was also a county.

As the French say: Je mourrai moins bête

An observation:

To put things in perspective for those of us feeling a bit stir crazy already. Anne Frank and 7 other people hid in a 450 sq. ft. attic for 761 days, quietly trying to remain undiscovered to stay alive.

We can all do our part to keep everyone safe and spend a few weeks at home.

First round of socialism hit the bank :slight_smile:


#287

Mine as well. Don’t really need it, thinking of what to do with it.


#288

Spend it. Hoarding doesn’t help the economy.


#289

It was not my intent to get people to share, in case choosing not to would amount to shaming.

We have friends who provide services that we use, that cannot work now (i.e. haircuts, that sort of thing). We are considering giving them an amount commensurate with what we would have spent on them. The rest, food bank is high on our list. I would challenge those like me who really aren’t financially hardened, to consider similar; if you are in a rough patch, hang tough.

Some peeps around are buying gift certificates from their fave restaurants.

We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.
Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn’t stand up anymore,
the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.
Hugs & kisses suddenly become weapons, and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.
Suddenly you realise that power, beauty & money are worthless, and can’t get you the oxygen you’re fighting for.
The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it’s sending us a message:
“You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters.”

I love this too, I wish I could give credit to the creator, I acquired it on FB it had noe credits there either.

I guess quite a few people are donating at least some portion of their Trump Income Redistribution Money to the Biden Campaign.


#294

Yikes. Donations from the poors to a millionaire.

Classic blunder.


#295

I think most of them are doing it just for the lols.

“I gave some of Trump’s money to Joe!”


#296

But it’s not Trump’s money, it’s our money.

The government has nothing to give that they didn’t already take.


#297

No the money has Trump’s name on it, ergo it’s his money. (SMH)


#298

It’s Floriduh of course it’s essential.

I am for the following essential social gatherings:

NASCAR
WWE
Monster Truck racing
Tent and revival churches - all church, mosque, and synagogue services in general


#299

Only if the mosques and synagogues utilize their 1st Amendment right that we all have, to worship Jesus Christ.


#300

I don’t care who they worship.
