More common sense about the Chinese virus

It is not as bad as you think it is, and it's nowhere near as bad as the media makes it out to be.

Now, this doesn't mean that I'm going to go visit dad if I've been exposed to it, because I'm still going to take precautions based on HIS statistics.  But I'm not going to die from this.  You are most likely not going to die from this.  This hysteria is manufactured.

Trump is getting bad advice. Destroying the economy and civil rights is not the answer and never will be. He is being painted into a corner by a false narrative. Politics is money and this is the biggest money of all.

As of March 20, there are about 15,500 known cases in the US. Figure a population of about 350 million, that works out to a skosh over .00004 % of the population. You could fit them all into pretty much any MLB ballpark and have room to do the whole 6 ft of separation dance.

Never let a crisis go to waste, comrades.. Manufacture one if need be. If you can't toss the guy out or beat him in November, come up with an overblown illness to wreck everything he's accomplished.
