Dude … stop being an idiot
You are drastically mistaken if you think that I think shutting down the economy for an undetermined period of time is a great idea
At the same time, I have enough of a brain to know that this shit is really bad and the consequences dire if we just act like there’s nothing to see here.
The sooner people do their role the sooner we all get back to business as usual
And BTW, we don’t know enough about this right now to know of long term consequences. Yeah, you might survive today but the shit I’m reading tells me the long term consequences may not be good.
The only good thing you’ve said is the hoarders of TP are scum
That’s where your wrong. This is a virus that’s fluctuating between a reported 1-2% mortality rate which in itself is very low but when you factor in how many unreported cases that are out there due to people being asymptomatic and untested, you’re talking about a less than 1% mortality rate. That’s nothing dude. Ebola for instance, has a 10% mortality rate.
And when did I ever say do nothing and behave as business as usual? I said people need to take reasonable precautions like washing their hands, self-quarantining if experiencing symptoms, not being in large groups, no sporting events with hundreds or thousands of fans in close proximity to each other, travel bans to other countries, and most importantly, at-risk people self-isolating themselves to prevent exposure to the virus. All of that shit is perfectly reasonable. But people need to fucking work, and spend money, and the stock market needs to not crash. The economic restrictions we’re seeing that don’t involve banning large crowds for the time being are a ridiculous overreaction. You’re the idiot.
