I'm to the point of no longer giving a rat's ass what Dr, Fauchi says about anything.
Well, it tells you what NOT to believe.

The important number is not so much the number of cases, which is likely far, far, higher than the tests reflect. How many have had mild to asymptomatic cases and not been tested? How many just gutted their way through mild or even moderate cases, who could not afford medical care and did not think it severe enough to seek it?

The important number isn't the number of cases, but the number of deaths.
And that (I believe, although others here may disagree) can be cut down even further by early and aggressive treatment. It's no secret what I think will work, so I'll leave it at that, but there are a couple of treatments out that appear (after some unbiased, well conceived testing) to work well if used at early onset.

Funny how some folks' idea of "success" would be pure Hell for some of us. Even funnier that they would be as miserable in our shoes as we'd be in theirs. :shrug:
Money is a tool, not an end, and while enough is nice, ridiculous amounts likely wouldn't do a heck of a lot of good. I don't drink, smoke, (although I like a bit of smokeless tobacco from time to time), love coffee, but seldom take so much as an aspirin otherwise. I don't want a building named after me, a statue in the park, or to be POTUS with all the hassle involved. That much power involves equal temptation to abuse it, and with the increase in the number of folks out there I'd admittedly be content to slap, It'd be a sore temptation, indeed.

That's just about right. I ain't made for power. I know, as I have been there. All I got was a fat head. Money? Been both ways, with it and without it... makes no real nevermind. I can be happy as a dog on the porch living out of a school bus back up in the sticks, and wanting for nothing. I guess that's where the perspective is different - When a man has liberty, he can make do about anywhere and be alright.,, So all that pomp and circumstance comes of little value.

That's a thing for a speculation exercise... A little navel gazing... If you walked out on the porch tomorrow morning and tripped over a million bucks in gold bricks, what would change in your life?

Me, if I had all that, I might have a nicer truck... maybe a 4 wheeler or a side-by-side... maybe a bitchin jeep for banging around on the backroads... I might could buy the rest of that land up in the holler... I'd have a hella fine shop outfitted I suppose... But it really wouldn't change all that much.

Heck, the most of it would be sitting on the shelf, waiting on the grand kids, I suppose.

And that says something I think. What you are at your core, should not be amenable to change. And that mere money would do little says I am pretty well where I am supposed to be,

"The Atomic Attacks on Japan: Justified or Not?"

Yes.
Of course they were.


Do you have any another questions...?

Aside:
We should have KEPT ON USING atomic bombs on North Korea and China to stop Mao's Korean war. It was never really under control of Kim il Sung. Mao was the driving force from its beginning until he ordered it to be brought to an end after Stalin died.
IIRC, LeMay brought that up when the ChiComs were massing across the Yalu. Likely it would have saved my dad at least one of his Purple Hearts.

And on topic, yes, whatever means were necessary to end the war quickly. Likely millions of lives were saved by using them, and it was a level of force that could not be denied, god emperor or no.

These kids won't be bored if they're let outside to explore. I was constantly outside as a kid. I was out before dawn, I'd come home to eat and then back outside until way dark.
yep. but before we got our first BB guns, these always came with us:

Mattel had a lot of fun toys, including booby traps....

41 days, and they still don't know who won.  This has to stop.
Yep. Right there.

Definitely not something we want nationwide in a presidential election.

I can see taking two days to vote (in person), or absentee ballots for those who are afraid to risk voting in person, but mail in ballots for the entire election? No way.

Besides I once got a Christmas check from my Grandmother in June. I am sure she thought me an ingrate for not sending a Thank You note, but by the time I got it the check was no good. I really wouldn't want my vote to sit in some dark corner somewhere....

So what? Where I am from wealth is measured in health, friends,  and family... Money don't mean sh*t to me.

Again, so what? IS that to be envied somehow? I wouldn't take that job for nothing. It is enough for me that I have captained my own ship since I was 18 years old.... I been rich, and I been poor. And I been happy in both conditions.

What is your fixation with THINGS? Who the hell would want such a thing, in the middle of a sh*thole city? Good God, but I would not want that. You couldn't give me that crap.

Meh. not my kind. Too high maintenance, and she sure as hell ain't going to be happy to be up in the holler. I wouldn't have her. The kind of woman that WOULD be happy up in the holler is the kind for me.

Again, wouldn't want it.

The only paper on the wall that means anything to me is over in the outhouse, so...

As a matter of fact yes I do... Other than the alcohol part, which doesn't matter, as none are alcoholic. None do drugs, and never have.

Wholesomeness is defined by whether one drinks alcohol or coffee? Are you kidding me? Not around here it ain't. And if I have a beer or some shine now and then, hell even if I kick up my heels a bit at a shindig somewhere, what the hell does that have to do with the measure of a man? That I do no HARM in it is all that matters. The rest is no business of yours. And so what if I drink coffee?

Nope. But I have defended my share of fair maidens... Have held out my hand to help folks up, have done right by folks that needed it. Which is the same damn thing.

Sp he's a lightweight. S'alright I won't hold it against him. No really - ANYONE who has their own business burns the candle at both ends. It's how it works. It is not admirable, but merely expected.

He reaps what he sows.

HAHAHAHA! Oh he's getting paid alright. Just because he ain't picking up his gubmint check don't mean he ain't getting paid.

Never had a complaint myself in that regard.

You threw this same bullcrap on me before. I told you then, and I meant it: There ain't a damn thing I want that he has. I abhor his lifestyle. I can't stand cities and pompous mansions, or tennis courts and fancy balls. Good lord, but I shudder at the thought of living that way in a sh*thole city. I find fault in a man that needs all that, and consider it weakness. So why would you accuse me of envy of that which I abhor? 1000 dollar suits? The guy is a dumass for spending that kind of money on something I wouldn't use if you gave it to me. Might as well cut it up for shop rags.

So don't impose your shallow measure of a man on others. you have no idea what you are talking about.

@ Fish, insightful and well done.
Some 2,500 years past, Plato asserted the Soul of Man defined his
uniqueness for all eternity and as such we are emphatically not equal.
The Enlightenment slogan of 'Egalitarianism' spawned the notion of the
equality of Man, which is simply a political slogan of horse manure.
Jefferson was a great man but like all had his foibles, one being his fondness
for French values and women as he was our Minister to France in 1785-89.

I will counter your statement: In fact, that all men are created equal in the sight of God, and under the law, is a profoundly Conservative position. It is not a measure of the man, but a measure of the system. The phrase is meant to portray blind justice under the law, and the casting down of artificial obstacles, allowing a man to reach for his own potential with no intrusion or imposition by others.

Keep in mind....  Ann Coulter: Corrupt Democrat Prosecutors Let ‘Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein Rape Girls’
Guess where Cyrus Vance falls in that? Right in the middle.

These corrupt b@st@rds are fighting for their lives, and Vance is one.

Correct.  More witch hunting. How about BIDEN, HUNTER, FEINSTEIN, PELOSI, NADLER, SCHIFF, SCHUMER, MAD MAXINE.....

 IRS, 8 years under OBAMA, who wire tapped TRUMP administration, wires in White House & TRUMP TOWER.  If there was a problem.  OBAMA and IRS would bring that to light.  obama looked illegally into some CHRISTIAN Business's , like CHICK-FIL-A..and persecuted them.  They looked at their CHARITY'S, they gave money to. POTUS and his accountants, follow all the laws put in by demon-rats.  Hillary has almost as big a write off as POTUS HAS.   BOTH USING THE SAME TAX LAWS.  ACCOUNTANTS can lose their license to practice, if they do anything wrong on purpose.

MORE HARASSMENT OF POTUS.  EVEN JUDICIAL WATCH....says that.  These are really evil people.

Remember, they always accuse others of things they, themselves, are doing.
