    I don't need to meet you. You family history has nothing to do with anything, either. My family's military history goes back to the War of Northern Aggression. Read Charlie Beckwith's book and you'll see my uncle spoken about in it. UDT who served in Vietnam? One was a supervisor of mine. 160th? I know plenty of them. Hell, I knew a man who operated a flamethrower in the Pacific Theater in WWII. Physically, he survived, but the burning, screaming Japs haunted his dreams whenever he tried to sleep.

    What am I saying? You are an icon in your own mind. The people to whom I've referred? They are different. They don't take to the internet to beat their chests.

    Assuming, of course, that your faux pas with the Phoenix Program wasn't an indication that you are a case of stolen valor and not a confused drunk.
    Assuming that you and RPD have never stepped foot on ground I've taken or hold, so if you actually what to make an ass out of you or me? RPD hasn't made that challenge. Are you sure you don't want to converse with him prior to challenging me? When it comes to the UDT, you are so out of your element that I refuse to embarrassment you on your own network. But if you wish, I shall do it by your own hand.

    You do nothing but brag and try to fight. You respond to nothing.

    Never said I was UDT, in case you haven't bothered to focus enough to notice.

    I don't care if you were UDT or just read about it. You are doing nothing but embarrassing yourself.

    Sigh.
    Denton, my friend, this alleged warrior is not worth our time.
    It is 12:00 AM Eastern, I’m tired, going to bed.

    Good night.

    I'll not go to bed until I put it to rest. He might not be here in the morning.

    Numbers of infected climb exponentially over the next 3 weeks with a huge balloon when testing actually gets up and running. Then, the curve flattens for awhile as a result of the shut down. Maybe we get it isolated to a few hot spots, but unlikely. People go back to work and start buying things again and economy picks back up for awhile, then infections start to pick up with more stay at home, etc. Meanwhile, if we've finally have tests, masks, gloves and vents available, then we do a slow burn off and on for the next year or two. Because of the lack of PPE at the beginning, healthcare workers infected early in the curve start coming back with some immunity. It flares up periodically until we have a vaccine. Recession drags on for a couple of years, then back to business as usual, nothing learned by most people, but meanwhile, politicians have used the pandemic to grab some more power and loot. Lots of deaths. Lots of small businesses down the toilet.

    I think we're going to end up with real socialized healthcare at the end of this, not the sketchy attempt at it that is Obamacare. All it will take is a critical mass of people touched by a medical-bill driven bankruptcy. I say this because mostly when people get laid off they lose their healthcare insurance (if they had any). And, because not many people have the kind of insurance that lets you walk away from 10 days in the ICU with anything but maybe your life. Lucky folks will be insured via a spouse or parent, but the insurance companies (which will likely get a bailout) will still screw them over in any way they can get away with. It won't matter that some countries national health is a shit show. They will point to countries where it was a success. The tipping point for healthcare reform has happened twice in my lifetime and both times it was triggered by insurance companies screwing over enough people to create a popular desire to string them up.

    tl;dr we're in the for the long haul
    that's the scariest thing i've read today...
    stopped reading the news today...
    I've been so busy... I stopped going home this weekend... I've been exposed to over 20 positive pts...
    a bunch of my coworkers are now sick and out...
    they are telling us at the rate that we're getting sick... they may ask us to come back and work with a mask.. if we can tolerate it..
    Even though I've been exposed to several 'high risk exposures' i have no symptoms... still feel fine.. so they wont test me..
    not enough tests ...
    we're running out of gloves.. masks.. and gowns... drugs.. and sanitizing wipes...
    seems like every state is competing with each other for the same stuff... and the squeaky wheels (nyc, chicago, wash, cali, dc) wil lget all the national reserve stockpiles..
    the number of sick keep accelerating...
    Im not sure how much longer we can keep treating everyone...
    in 2 weeks.. they may ask us to care for patients without protective equipment...
    I knew I was going to get sick... .but I hope by then I'm not too worn down...
    i'm gonna go to sleep.. I gotta be up in 5 hours...

    Good night, Doc.

    You guys need to remember that sleeping deprivation reduces the immune system. You educated dumbasses seem to forget that y'all aren't immortal.

    Balance. You have to help the elderly but people have to work too. I do not know about anyone else but there is only so long I can stay home and remain financially solvent. I do not think stores will accept IOU notes. Oh wait, they already do.... federal reserve notes. They just will refuse to take my personal ones.

    I hear you and you are correct. Especially about the FRNs.
    Still, I accept no casualties but my own life. Fight for them all.

    The above was posted 18 hours before this reply.
    The first post, 18 hours earlier, warned we had just broken 300,000. As I type this we are at 475,000 and rising.
