    The Branch Covidians...

    Presented for what it's worth to those interested...The politicization of current events is unprecedented in my memory...This disease is only one of them...



    My own take: I wear the mask and get my temperature taken when it's necessary to enter a place where I wish to do business...Otherwise I walk my PM routes, and pick up nasty discarded cans with neither mask nor gloves, then clean up as always when I get home...I conduct my life as I always have, and avoid places where I seem unwelcome...Others may do as they like...So far I've been lucky and have experienced no sick days in the last several years...I offer handshakes, and take no offense when it's avoided...Whether or not I have the antibodies inside me, I have no idea, and I don't worry over it...

    The worst suffering from the pandemic has been sustained by the devastating blows to our economy, and I don't think there's any way to recover from that soon, and regain our leadership position in the world......Ben

    I have been staying home as much as possible. I do not wear a mask unless I go into a place of business. I have been avoiding restaurants and crowded places. I use more hand sanitizer than a surgeon. So far so good.

    I've used it for years instead of hand soap because it was cheaper, and rinses off easier than soap...Gets my hands just as clean too...I was stocked up with the large economy sizes before it became a sellout item...Nowadays the price is on a par with hand soap when it can be found in larger sizes......Ben

    I wear my mask when required or polite to do so. It's not that big a deal.

    I object to the ludicrous testing and quarantine procedures that accomplish nothing except letting bureaucrats feel superior.

    Yes - it will take years to gain back what we've lost economically. Hopefully, it will be THE priority of our next administration.

    I would be interested in hearing why someone in that category like you has come to that pessimistic conclusion, Fred?

    I'm waiting as well. I believe it will be the opposite, at least in rural America. Especially when Americans figure out how they were screwed by the unholy alliance of Big Government and Big Business in this PPP thing.

    Of course we will have to wait for the media to crawl out of Trumps azz.
