That's why I think everyone yelling that Covid19 was just a bad flu were not necesarily wrong. I imagine the flu would be totally devastating if it showed up and we had no vaccine and no immunity to it.

But really, Covid's just a bad common cold. We're terrible at having a vaccine to prevent the common cold, and our immune system does a terrible job at preparing for it. Except this common cold also just absolutely destroys random people while giving others the sniffles.

BREAKING: The median age of COVID-19 fatalities in the U.S. is 81. So tell me again why are we keeping young people from going to school?

It only drops off on the high end because they’re so few people that old.

67,000 (est.) jail and prison inmates are back on the street because Covid. Ever feel like you're living in a country that is rapidly imploding?

Anyone know how many were released in MS?

Excerpt:

Horowitz: 67K criminals released so far under coronavirus jailbreak. And crime keeps rising

Is this the country for which our soldiers sacrificed their lives?

By now, most Americans are familiar with the shocking stories of everyday Americans getting arrested for simply opening businesses that don’t even attract large crowds. However, fewer are aware of the other side of this dystopian and tyrannical equation. As salt-of-the-earth small business owners are being marched into the jails, career dangerous criminals are being marched out of the jails and prisons in astounding numbers.

According to UCLA, which is tracking this data, 67,000 criminals have been released throughout the 50 states. The majority of the criminals, 43,000 of them, have been released from the nation’s jails, and 24,356 were released from prisons.

Consequently, given that we know the shocking degree of recidivism even among criminals more carefully selected for release, we can add victims of crime due to coronavirus jailbreak as the latest long-term death toll from COVID-19, or at least from the governmental reaction to it.

Remember, this has nothing to do with fear of prisoners dying of coronavirus. Just a few hundred deaths have been recorded out of a population of 2.2 million inmates, lower than that of the general population. In most prisons, the overwhelming majority of those who got the virus have been asymptomatic and are now already immune and have been for quite some time. Thus, there is no reason to release large numbers of convicted criminals, most of whom are young and healthy.

This has everything to do with accelerating an already dangerous de-incarceration movement, which is why you shouldn’t hold your breath and wait for them to be re-apprehended after the virus burns out.

According to a brand-new report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2018, the combined federal and state incarceration rate in prisons had already dropped to the lowest levels since 1996. Over the past year and half since that data collection, that decline has likely accelerated given the recent sweeping jailbreak policies enacted in so many states.

Despite the common complaint of over-incarceration among African-Americans, the incarceration rate fell 28 percent just in the 10 years from 2008-2018. That is for prisons. In the nation’s jails, the incarceration rate has plummeted so steeply that, for black residents, it was lower in 2018 than at any time since 1990. Again, that was before some of the recent law changes abolishing or limiting bail in many states and counties.

As such, those who had remained in prison as of early this year were the worst of the worst.

Consider the insanity of Hawaii. The state has released roughly 38% of the state’s entire jail population. This is a state where there are just 17 COVID-19 deaths overall and no confirmed cases in jails. Yet they emptied them of criminals. In early May, a 20-year-old Hawaiian was arrested for murder just two weeks after being released out of fear of the virus! At the same time, the state has the strictest lockdown in the nation. One man was arrested for posting photos of himself at the beach after the fact!

We still don't know what the final effects of Covid is. There are a lot of people that have minor symptoms that end up with lung scarring, and then there's the random Kawasaki type thing kids are getting a month after recovering. They are having something that isn't normal a month later, so folks are a little concerned about long term for them.
Also, kids are petri dishes. Parents catch everything once they have kids, and Covid won't be different. Adults would be safer hugging random strangers than having kids in school.
At least those are the arguments I'm hearing.

All that said, what should we do? I don't have a clue. Conservatives have been yelling about indoctrination at public schools anyways, maybe it's time we take the opportunity to do something about it and prove that we don't need them?

However, with the way getting a vaccine is going, we might have to shoot for herd immunity anyways. If Covid is here to stay, we might as well approach it like chicken pox was. Get it early and get it over with. A couple decades and there won't be many senior citizens that don't already have immunity from when they were younger.

If immunity lasts more than a year. A big, hopeful if.

From what I have seen personally, it affects the brain, sometimes seriously, and even other parts of the nervous system.

It is my belief that it is.

Safer At Home order extended again

Gov. Tate Reeves extends Safer At Home order to June 1

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves Friday has again added more time to his “Safer At Home” executive order, which is now in effect until June 1 at 8 a.m. It was to expire on Monday, May 25.

Reeves made the announcement during his daily video press update to the state about the COVID-19 pandemic in Mississippi, saying it was needed to continue “flattening the curve.”

"We cannot ask the people of Mississippi to do more than they are able to do for a sustained period of time,” Reeves said. “Over the past two weeks, we have steadily opened up more and more of our economy. There will still be some guidelines in place for businesses—but we will be out of the business of closing down anybody.”

Just as a comparison, the story is a bit different in Columbia. The one in S. America, not the one on our East coast. ;)

Excerpt:

'Comply or die': Colombia’s guerrillas impose their own Covid-19 lockdowns

Families are being shot dead for breaking coronavirus restrictions in rural Colombia as guerrillas enforce a brutal parallel lockdown.

Armed groups, many of them dissidents of the now disbanded Farc militia, are declaring those who break the rules to be military targets in a bid to sow fear and expand their territories while the government turns a blind eye.

"They are trying to reap terror and gain territorial control so that - after this crisis - people in these areas will not report them for drug trafficking, illegal mining, and corruption - the activities they carried out before and will carry out again after coronavirus," Carlos Negret, national human rights Ombudsman, told The Telegraph.

The guerilla groups are killing, taking hostages, and burning vehicles in retribution for violations of their COVID-19 measures, spelled out in pamphlets distributed among terrorised local communities.

“Either you get it right, or you will be among the many deaths of the coming days. You already know the rules – comply or die,” reads a pamphlet by the Jaime Martinez Column, a dissident group of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), published 6 May.

On 26 April, members of the Jaime Martinez Column threw a grenade and opened fire into a packed bar. Last week, an entire family were gunned down in the street as they rode a moped after curfew: the father and two daughters, aged 5 years old and nine months old, were killed.
