    Ask Dr. Fauci ... Fauci denied that he ever heard the president “distort” the threat of the coronavirus and maintained that Trump’s presentations to the public were largely in line with discussions he’d had with medical experts. When asked whether he ever felt Trump was downplaying the severity of the coronavirus, Fauci said NO. Trump & all Americans listened to "Mr. Scientist" Fauci for 4+ months from April, May, June & July including the total lock down for almost 2 months and then partial lockdown for June & July. Even today most states are NOT looking at their real numbers and using POLITICS to decide on how to open back up fully. Stopping Covid is just like Stopping a BAD FLU. >>> ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE In the 2017-18 flu season ... over 80,000 people died including many children & seniors. Please remember, that we do have a vaccine for influenza plus so many treatments ... still many people have died. America didn't STOP LIVING or even talked about it. We just went on with our life. I do believe Covid is a little bit more dangerous to certain people according to their health. I am almost certain from reading many articles, that Covid death numbers are most likely falsely blown up as much as 50%. This will cut our death count in half. Each month we are finding out that the Covid death ratio is coming down and if we ever get the real numbers we will find out that 2020 COVID-19 really is just a BAD FLU YEAR. Conclusion: Before this is all over with, we will find out that living in FEAR was probably the worst thing we could of ever done.

    When I flipped on the news this morning, I figured social media would be filled with both glee and lectures. The President getting the covid changes nothing about anything in my life. Masks? No thanks. Distance? Never liked being close to strangers anyway. Wershing Hands? Been doing that since I was 3. Covid is not a death sentence for the vast majority no matter the age.

    The President never called Covid a "hoax". The President accused Democrats of politicising the virus, then called the criticism of his handling covid as "their new hoax". Bon, have you been listening to fake news?

    Same here. When your parents are Depression kids, you get taught things like that. You get what you earn and you don't get what you didn't earn.

    I agree the criticism would have been long and loud. That's the kind of thing leaders face every day. But Joe had an opportunity to show he is better than Trump and failed, in my opinion. I doubt there is anyone who was swayed by the debate. I have talked with many who said watching it was a complete waste of their time.

    There it is. We have several sides to the same issue. People who are unemployed, from jobs that paid well and had decent benefits are unwilling to accept a job that isn't close to what they had previously. Even though it isn't a realistic expectation to start over with a new employer at that income level in most cases. Our current government handout programs have made it possible for some of those people to avoid the hard decisions about accepting a job that isn't close to their ideal position. It's the ultimate Catch 22. On the other hand, we have people seeking employment at the magic $15 figure, who have no proven skills and often could pass for zombies. They often come across as not really wanting a job as much as they want to be paid, as fedup says, for sucking air. Throw in drug testing, which isn't limited to either side (I've seen some very great potential hires fail the drug test several times.) and the issue of quality employees and how much they are worth to come off the street with no skills, limited experience, poor work history, etc., and that kind of wage isn't realistic. This part is a little outside the discussion but worth the time to follow along. I was part of a hiring team faced with a potential employee who came to us seeking a job in a sister division where we really didn't need anyone and probably couldn't afford another person at that time. He had an outstanding resume. Actually highly overqualified for our business at that time, also he was young and didn't have a lot of experience. We discussed the situation and decided if we could hire him at X$ we should give it a try and spread his cost over both divisions. We called him in for a final meeting and made him an offer. He looked at it for a minute and came back with a counter offer. He said "I really want to come to work for your company, but I believe I'm worth more than what you're offering. I would like to work for you for a month for nothing. At the end of a month we'll sit down and discuss what you feel I'm worth to your business". He didn't come across as cocky, or anything that would put us off, simply as someone who was highly confident in his abilities. We accepted his offer with the agreement we would pay him what our initial offer was and revisit the pay in 30 days. In 30 days he had proved his value and more. His pay ended up being 40% higher than our original offer and was retroactive to his starting date. The sad part of this story is that he worked for us about 10 years and died of a massive heart attack at 35. The loss of him in our company was beyond difficult and left a hole that we were never able to fill. I wish we could have found another dozen like him. The moral to this story is that sometimes you have to know what your value is, and be willing to prove it.

    I can't remember all the jobs I have had. Some were good, some were bad and some just plained sucked. As they say, man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do. I guess I am not done, I am still sucking air. I have no idea why. Who knows what's in store for me. I will work til no one wants me. I just got my first SS check. I guess I am still sucking air to get as much as my money back as I can. Plus make life a living hell for the Liberals. If I was religious, I would say I am on a mission from God. I believe in Mother Nature. She is demanding me to cull the herd and save America.🍻

    All things considered, I would rather err on the side of caution. I follow wearing a mask, social distancing and washing my hands, because I beleive its the right thing to do. Its that simple for me. Doing these things is not harming anyone else.

    Great idea-----yes. Leadership is what matters. He was still more presidential in that he did not act like a juvenile. Trumpers would have deeply criticized his "walking out", and others as well...........depends how it is viewed. Some think it showed a calm, collect leader---the opposite of what we have now...

    I'm going dirt track racing at Williams Grove. The crowd should be 10,000+. Based on previous races I've been to this summer I expect that masks and social distancing will be nearly nonexistent.

    If Joe was the leader some people think he is he could have shown some common sense and simply said something like this. Mr President, if you can't allow answers to questions without constant interruptions and simply want to disrupt these proceedings, I won't waste my time and the people's time by continuing this debacle. Then turned and walked out. That would have raised Joe's image immeasurably, in my opinion. That would be leadership. But he didn't do anything positive. He simply followed right along and acted like a petulant child.

    Sustainable work and living wage are nothing but vague, feel good expressions from people who don't know any better. They defy definition and have no basis in reality. I readily agree I, and most others, couldn't go back into the workforce at any age, and replicate the earnings we had before. But anyone who believes they can start at the same level they were at previously is sadly mistaken. If I wanted to earn what I earned before retiring I would have to go back to a sales job that paid more based on performance and be willing to work 60+ hours every week, exactly like I did for years. Not overlooking the fact that it would take 3-5 years to build a customer base that would provide that income. I've always subscribed to the words of the ultra successful Roger Penske. EFFORT = RESULTS It's hard to be more plain.

    It's really called ""ignore user". Depending on what device you are using, its easy to do. If you are on a pc , you can just highlight the members profile with cursor and select "ignore user". If you are on a tablet or phone, go to the menu on top right (the 3 lines) , then select "Account", then select "Ignore User" . Now you will be able to add any member to be IGNORED. (or take one off if you have already added)

    Are they actually sick? The news keeps saying that they got tested because someone that works at the WH tested positive. People may not get their wish that he dies. People are going to get it mask or not. This changes nothing for me.

    I am praying for our President and his wife for a quick recovery. This will not weigh him down one bit. If anything, it will make him more committed to winning this race. That's the guy he is. A fighter. I am also praying for our Vice President and his wife, Joe Biden and his wife, and Kamala Harris and her husband to stay well and not get the virus. It is a nasty thing, and no one needs to come down with it.

    It's way worse than that here. Most of the jobs are not asking for a PIZZ test or even a background check. Come as you are and get hired. Even if you show up on a skateboard covered in tats with iron sticking out of your face. The business owners are so desperate for a warm body they will accept anything that moves.
