Trump says he wants country 'opened up' by Easter, despite caution from health experts

Public health experts have said easing restrictions too early could put an enormous strain on hospitals and lead to even more deaths and economic damage.

Those people would normally die, and not pss on their “defective” genes. Modern technology has allowed these people to live and procreate.

If a new insect came along that had a different effect, my limited response might be very dangerous, while the person with the anaphylactic response might be the one who survives.

We are generic “soup”, constantly selecting to best adapt to the stressors we encounter, while those stressors are constantly doing the same.

It is an arms race that has been going on forever.

You seem to be a believer in random adaptation, correct?

For once, I wish that's what we did when Songbird wanted to come over. The way teenagers socially distance would have killed the natives with smallpox! Oops!

I just survived God-knows-what... first light sniffling and sneezing, (I was like - no way!) then massively inconvenient migraine headache and constant vomiting yesterday. Today it's my husband's turn.

Oh, boy... did I just make a mess....

Considering that they shut down orthodontics.... I'm like.... yay.... my 14 yo is soooo grumpy right now!

Problem is... we're going through unknown fever/chills...

How do you merge posts again....

My decision to post was based on my orthodontist situation and my daughter's visit. Those are relevant.

My question to you is not irrelevant either, as it relates to survival. Answer, please. 🙂

I understand you are a lot smartur than me... so let's discus virology. Me likey.

(Looks like someone ran off to do some research.)

Truth is we barely discovered epigenetics... the point being, DNA is alive. It has skin that controls expression like a brain. It's a library of us and our environment.

Say, for example, you have a lot of copper and selenium in you, the viral DNA will adapt to the environment and become more dormant.

Here’s everything you need to know about the coronavirus stimulus package

[ . . . ]
The package’s central cash-injecting giveaway would cut checks of up to $1,200 to each taxpayer, with amounts tapered down to $600 for low-income workers and retirees [ because they can obviously survive on less ] and phased out for people who earned between $75,000 and $99,000 in 2018. For each child, there would be a $500 tax rebate.
[ . . . ]

It's hardly everything we need to know, but it's a start.

Tax rebate? Ouch. I'm not sure that's right. 😕 You are right... I mean. Some are so low under the line that doesn't sound right!

And does not cover anything , as far as I know , for those on
SSI , or other programs for the ***truly*** poor...

All this money should not just be going to those who have / have had income

We are in a worse boat , in many ways , and food banks in many areas are
closed , or can not get food for the people to give out , which is often our
only means of survival , as far as food , monthly...

Where is our $1,200.00

Trump family will not profit from $2tn stimulus package, Schumer says

Donald Trump’s family has been blocked from getting bailout funds in the $2tn economic stimulus package, according to a letter from the Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer.
[ . . . ]
Schumer also highlighted a provision to stop Trump’s private business, the Trump Organization, run by his sons, Eric and Don Jr, from benefiting from any cash giveaway.

Amid the bullet points outlining the “significant improvements” Schumer said Democrats had made to the bill was a line prohibiting the family of the president, and other lawmakers, from receiving loans from Treasury department programs.

The letter said the deal would “prohibit businesses controlled by the president, vice-president, members of Congress, and heads of executive departments from receiving loans or investments from treasury programs. The children, spouses and in-laws of the aforementioned principals are also included in this prohibition.”

Well, at least there's that.
* contemplates loopholes. . . *

Where is our 1200?  Some don't make enough to have to pay taxes that kicks them right out of the loop.  I'm sure in the past I've  heard Trump say taxes are voluntary.  I'm going  back to the desert and live a self sufficient life in Joshua Tree.   Wait a minute I just read there are city folk trying to camp in peoples backyards to get away from the city.  That's ok they wont go into Burns Cnyon

Last time we were in USA (1999) we drove through Joshua Tree zone; nice-ish. A bit too deserty for me if I remember correctly. We really liked Three Rivers though (somewhere inland in California) it reminded us of Switzerland. The Earthships near Taos in New Mexico were also amazing; we stayed in one for a few nights.
I never liked cities myself; slowly the appeal of the city is waning. The future is small rural communities & locally grown food & crafts. Check out: https://www.fermedubec.com/english/

Cheers, Josh.

Chapter 5 of the Tao Te Ching...the one chapter that westerners have always had a problem with...
Heaven and Earth treat all things as straw dogs;
they are completely indifferent.
A wise person understands the reasons why.

Mother nature does not conform to our desires...like the ancient Greek saying...If you want to make the Gods laugh, tell them of your plans.

Think globally, act locally...help your neighbour...even if you do not like each other...kindness is the best medicine...but remember...virus' are not good or eveil...they are completely indifferent...they treat us all as "straw dogs".

Balance & Harmony...Harry
