Yeah I'm sure pandemics are much easier to get through when you're privileged....

Its not easy for any of us. We all have our own issues that we have to deal with. Yes, I am fortunate from a job situation (and I've worked extremely hard over the years to put myself in this situation).

However, my wife and I also have to balance working full time at very demanding professions and home schooling two young kids. This is not easy by any stretch of the imagination.

Bad news for you .... Today Newsom lifted restrictions on over 50 counties today. In other words he caved and reopened Ca. He’s even letting pro sports resume next month. Still like him for Vice President?

He's giving counties that feel its unsafe to go full board the option to opt out. For example, we won't be seeing all businesses here in the Bay Area or LA opening right away. He's also indicated that if things get bad again, he'll put restrictions back in place. I don't see an issue with that.

Georgia has been doctoring their data. governor kemp had to apologize. Georgia and Texas look like they are going to be fails. A gop politician risking American lives by lying for political gain. I am not even surprised anymore

No, it's not easy for any of us.

Your issues, compared to many is pretty good, many now would trade with you.

Maybe think of those who have been laid off, parents working from home who have children with special needs,. women and children living in fear of domestic abuse or are being abused.

The impact this isolation mentally has on children long term.

Try thinking of them when you feel like it's not easy.

And I hope your job situation for you and your wife remain that, but the damage already done to the economy isn't done. I know two nurses who were laid off, and an attorney. So no one can think they're not at risk for losing their job.

When the solution becomes worse than the problem, it is never good.

All the businesses won't be reopening because they're now out of business. You seem to not grasp that. They had no choice but to close for good.

Yet people go to Target, Costco, and Wallyworld but a small business that might get 10 to 15 customers a day(usually one or maybe two at a time) had to shut....how is that even logical?

Unless you ban people from leaving or entering LA County or any counties that remain closed what is the point?

Scientists discuss the scientific, epidemiological, medical aspects of the pandemic. That's what they should do. That is their expertise. That is no reason to distrust them.

What are you talking about when you use the terms "excess deaths" related to social costs? Explain in detail, please, with examples.

I want to hear more about the international cabal of epidemiologist and infectious disease physicians who had China quarantine a 100 million citizens and Italy quarantine tens of millions of citizens all as part of a plan to deprive Americans of their freedom. Fauci is an evil genius graduating first in his class from Cornell medical school and performing pioneering HIV research all just to be in a position to bring his nefarious plan to fruition.
