We are a country divided rather than united. We forget the old saying "United we stand Divided we Fall.

This is so true. The phrase "In Unity There Is Strength" means nothing. Not everyone wants to come together. Just look at the foolish mindset of some people who refuse to wear masks, claiming it takes away their freedoms. Well, this has nothing to do with taking away your freedom, it has to do with saving lives and eradicating the Corona Virus.

We are definitely a divided country. And that's why we will never be able to win this battle.

Right now during this pandemic we can't on this forum agree if having karaoke in a public setting is a good thing, or a public health menace?

We all know that it is NOT a good thing right now. We all know that going to a bar is taking a risk but again, some people just don't care.

At this time... not only should bars be closed, but the whole country should be closed.

As far as recovery is concerned the numbers do not seem to favor returning to normal anytime soon. We have gone over the 153,000 death mark concerning Covid-19, over 4 million infections. There are now 21 states in the red danger zone on the map, including Mr. Scott's home state of Utah, and much of the president's base in the deep old Confederate South. This administration is still not responding to the virus in a united manner, and we continue to go down the piece meal rabbit hole. We are not out of the first wave, Fall and Winter are looming up ahead. There is little doubt in my mind that the next election cycle will see the defeat of the status quo, the question is can we use this opportunity to finally change long term structurally this country so it finally works for everybody, not just the few wealthy connected special interests?

A further note the Harvard Medical School has just advised that 13 states need to lock down, like right now. Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arizona, Tennessee, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, Idaho, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. So I guess if you don't get it right the first time, try, try, try again?

The last quarter GDP numbers are finally out. For those that were waiting for signs of recovery, the numbers don't look good the GDP fell by 32.9%, if the trend continues this year would be worse than the height of The Great Depression in 1932, when GDP fell over 12% for the entire year. Still adjusted for the one quarter it represents nearly a 10% drop which for one quarter, is very near the 12% mark. You have to remember the GDP was much smaller then, so the dollar loss now is much higher. This coupled with the continued spike in cases, and deaths shows quite dramatically that a new stimulus bill is needed to prevent the country from slipping into economic anarchy.

I saw that article about it. Not only those states but even Bob's beloved Maryland is getting close to being a state that should be looking at locking down. Saw another article where CDC is saying that if every single state would go to wearing masks for 4 to 8 weeks, we could have beaten Covid long ago.

That would be the smart thing to do but since human beings are very stupid people, that's never going to happen.

of course, because as everyone who has not allowed the leftist scientific and medical community to brainwash them knows, wearing a mask is much more hazardous to your health than the virus.

With Fall and Winter now fast approaching, and Summer fading, we are now in for a bumpy ride between now and election day. Anyone that can vote and doesn't this time around is doing themselves and the country a disservice. We have to vote out the science deniers and vote in people who at least have some respect for facts, even though they don't like them.

For those looking for signs of recovery, I can say I did finally see some. The country club rally at Trumps resort in New Jersey, where he unveiled his executive orders, which really mean little, and his promise to give his rich club members even more money back, at the cost of funding the government. It was a let them eat cake moment on steroids, these club members pay 350,000.00 a year just to be part of this golf establishment. They were having their drinks, not wearing masks, not social distancing, until of course Trump aides passed out masks. I was surprised there wasn't a band, or maybe a KJ somewhere around. These are the very people who could care less if average people are suffering. They are not faced with eviction, foreclosure, hunger, or losing their family business's. They are the one's who will be the first to line up for government money like Kodak did, if it becomes available. Billions and Trillions for them from the FED with no waiting. The rest of us have to wait in line hope Congress can work, and provide us with the bare essentials. Is there little doubt now that the people need basic economic rights, as well as basic human rights? The right to food security, income security, public health care option aka health security, free public education, and jobs for all that need them. Most of us wouldn't want to belong to Trump's club, the people there seem rather shallow, and selfish. We do want to be able to live with some dignity, and not die on the street, where many of our fellow citizens will end up in the next few months, if we don't do anything.
