Oh excuses excuses for bad behavior, it seems worse than ever on the net...the whole world is on edge from this "plandemic" -- I get that and know that.

Food kitchens are desperate for food and lines from those needing food are LONG....people who all had jobs and now out of work due to lockdowns.....was that the right thing to do afterall????? We'll never know as can't go back....

Your empathy and common sense is starting to freak me out.

She's had a few helpful comments, but doesn't seem to notice.

It been a while since we've had a new member and it's amusing the ripples it's causing as we learn about each other.

You know who I miss? Henry Quirk.

What do you think is going around in his head these days? I imagine he's staying the course, like UG.

I had the uncle of one of my kids try a Trump bait on me after a meeting. I expect he was disappointed but I'm not going to talk politics on the clock. I was tempted since it is a health department contract but if somebody still believes it's basically the flu I'd be wasting both our times.

Regarding the newb, I am entertained.

HQ isn't one to take in new information contrary to his beliefs, so I imagine it's second star to the right, and straight on till morning.

So do I, we didn't agree on much but he could present his views without being an asshole.

We do know some facts. Countries that did the most severe lockdowns suffered least economic damage. Counties that did little or no lockdowns have now suffered the most GDP losses. Those numbers are only 7% downturns verses 14% GDP losses.

Likewise. Being able to disagree without being disagreeable is admirable. HQ, if you're reading this, please check in.
