Nice social message but all one has to do is go to Angels and see how the locals have no consideration for the well-being of others.

After 7 months of spread in America and more than 205,000 deaths about 9% of our population has some immunity against SARSCoV2.

To reach herd immunity with 80% making antibodies (without a vaccine) would we need to permit 1,600,000 deaths?

Of course, this assumes that the antibodies are long lasting, which might not be the case.

And doesn’t mention the millions who will have long lasting injuries like heart, lung, kidney and brain damage.

    Early data suggests antibodies do not remain in some victims after 3 months. This is a virus that doesn't respect previous knowledge and questions the concept of herd immunity until all are vaccinated.

And before someone brings up the “only 6%” BS:

This is a lie. Just look at the excess death chart on the CDC’s website. If anything, Covid deaths are being undercounted.


And many of the other contributing causes are also just *symptoms* of COVID. In fact COVID is listed as the primary underlying cause of death in 92% of the death certificates.

And other items listed include diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. These are not acutely fatal conditions! In fact, most Americans have comorbidities like these. “No big deal, only most people are affected,” said no one ever.

Well, doesn’t the CDC admit most the people were old? Sure, but more people That doesn’t mean years or even decades of life haven’t been lost (and we know they’re being lost because of the excess deaths).

Please wear a mask and take this seriously.

    I like numbers and statistics. Did you know cops are killed by blacks at a rate 2.5 times higher than the rate at which blacks are killed by police? This is why I'm not comfortable with BLM and all these people who jump on their bandwagon.
    Also when it come to violent crime, murder for example, blacks commit murder 570 % more then whites, aggravated assault at 203.3% greater and violent crime in total at 263.6% greater, and the black people make up about 14% of our population.
    Poverty has some to do with it, but let's face it, they account for about 50% of murders, and about 38% of all violent crime overall.
    I'm commenting on this because I've been reading on these "peaceful protesting" in these large democrat cities and it's not being told correctly, in fact it's being rarely told and it's all wrong. It's not rarely about BLM these violent 'protesting' it's about people who want violence, destroying, stealing and to have their kind of 'fun' knowing the liberal DA will drop charges, because their lib/ dem mayor's and governors told them to drop charges.
    This is the reason that these cities and/or states may lose Federal dollars and they should.
    PS: " According to a Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 study, 15.3% of crimes against whites were committed by blacks for a total of 547,948 crimes. In contrast, whites committed 10.6% of crimes against blacks for a total of 59,777 crimes.

    Despite being 13.4% of the population, blacks committed nine times more interracial crimes against whites than whites committed against blacks. If racism is the cause of interracial violence, white cops are not the problem."

    I'm posting this because I have family who are/were in law enforcement and firemen. Then you have all these people on the BLM bandwagon and do not even look at the facts or what these people face day in and out, everyday, when on duty and off. A black is more likely to be killed by lightning than a police officer.
    There's always going to be a bad apple in any group, but I'm sick and tired of ignorance of people like Lebron James makes millions and does his ignorance cop hate speeches while young black males commit over 50 PERCENT OF ALL VIOLENT Crime in America
    I wish we had a Media that would be neutral and print facts, not their personal agenda.

    Have a wonderful Sunday, and please wear your mask for everyone sake

      Nearly all Black Lives Matter protests are peaceful despite Trump narrative, report finds

      The results of the study present a stark contrast to claims made by the Trump administration, and widely circulated by Fox News and other rightwing media outlets, that the US is being overrun by violent leftwing protesters and “domestic terrorists”.

      “There have been some violent demonstrations, and those tend to get a lot of media coverage,” Dr Roudabeh Kishi, Acled’s director of research & innovation, told the Guardian. “But if you were to look at all the demonstrations happening, it’s overwhelmingly peaceful.”


      Violent intervention from government forces did not make protests more peaceful, the report concluded. In Portland specifically, the report found that intervention from federal authorities in the protest “only aggravated unrest”, with the number of “violent demonstrations” rising from 53% to nearly 62% of all events “after federal agents arrived on the scene”.

      Armed individuals were documented at at least 50 protests this summer.

      “Individual perpetrators – sometimes linked to hate groups like the KKK – have launched dozens of car-ramming attacks targeting demonstrations around the country,” the researchers wrote.

      And where do your statistics come from?

        Again, SRS grows things out there to try and back up his support for things.
        I too support our police. I don't suppose your lightning analogy applies to gun violence unless only blacks were being killed by lightning. And guns for that matter.
        Where you get your statistics would be helpful.
        Tough to argue/support/refute information when you don't know where it came from. Many in the media do the same, Fox and CNN.
        You do mention poverty, but I think its more social than anything else. When blacks live in close proximity of one another, violence is going to occur whether is poverty or some other social issue.
        If you look at white violence, Latino violence, native American violence, or Asian violence, the numbers are going to point to who your neighbors are.
        Throwing in thank you and a wonderful Sunday doesn't change that you support a leader that divides rather than unites.
        I hope blacks, Latinos, Asians, Indians, Native Americans, Christians, Muslims, Jews, atheists, and yes, whites can see through the BS that the current President is using to try and get their vote. 46+ months of not giving a damn and now he throws different groups a bone here and there.
        I hope people are smarter than that.
        I even have hope for you SRS.

    Donald doesn't NEED any money since he has plenty of his own to pay for his own leisure activities etc. I don't think he even accepted the standard annual salary for prez. Just like Arnold here in Calif. He didn't want the money either. He got rich off of his movies! End of story!

      Doesn't need money?
      Thats why looking at his tax returns would be helpful.
      What movie(s) has he made money from?
      He's a corporate shrill that has accountants move money for him so that he, and we, have no idea where it comes and goes. In his debate with Hillary he called that smart. His supporters buy that BS.
      You'd rather point a finger at Biden, and his son, rather than look at the truth staring you in the face.

        You can now! The Times just got his taxes:

        The Times obtained Donald Trump’s tax information extending over more than two decades, revealing struggling properties, vast write-offs, an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due.

        By Russ Buettner, Susanne Craig and Mike McIntire

        Sept. 27, 2020

        Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

        He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.

        As the president wages a re-election campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing, his finances are under stress, beset by losses and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt coming due that he has personally guaranteed. Also hanging over him is a decade-long audit battle with the Internal Revenue Service over the legitimacy of a $72.9 million tax refund that he claimed, and received, after declaring huge losses. An adverse ruling could cost him more than $100 million.

        The tax returns that Mr. Trump has long fought to keep private tell a story fundamentally different from the one he has sold to the American public. His reports to the I.R.S. portray a businessman who takes in hundreds of millions of dollars a year yet racks up chronic losses that he aggressively employs to avoid paying taxes. Now, with his financial challenges mounting, the records show that he depends more and more on making money from businesses that put him in potential and often direct conflict of interest with his job as president.

          Doesn't take rocket science to know Trump is making money off his presidency. And his kids.
          Too bad his supporters haven't figured it out.
          Trump's Lemmings will go off any cliff to prove their leader would never betray them.

      Following reports earlier this year that the Trump Organization has charged the Secret Service as much as $650 a night to stay at Trump properties when accompanying the president, the Washington Post reported Thursday that those hefty hotel bills have so far added up to nearly a million dollars—at least.

      According to reports obtained by the Post, American taxpayers have paid the Trump Organization at least $970,000 for more than 1,600 room rentals since Trump took office—which amounts to “the equivalent of more than four years’ worth of nightly rentals at Trump properties.” “Almost all” of the payments have been for trips taken by the president, his family members, and top officials, and have paid for rooms for Secret Service agents or staffers, rather than the Trump family themselves. The payment total marks a sharp increase from the $628,000 the Post had found as of March, after the publication found an additional $340,000 in room payments. And the number still could be an undercount, as in the absence of publicly-reported information on the charges from the federal government or Trump Organization, the Post notes that their data is “still incomplete.” “It’s not just that there’s a huge amount of money being spent: we have no idea how much the actual figure is,” Jordan Libowitz, of the nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, told the Post. “We don’t know what’s happening ... only that the taxpayers are footing the bill for it.”
