Warriors eliminated before the Wizards this year, is the basement in your new arena even finished yet?

Want to bet my team will have a better record next year?

A lot of people seem to be working from home now.  

In some places.

 

In areas like Baltimore City, where I teach, staying home from work for two weeks is essentially impossible for most families. If they're lucky they can leave the kids with grandparents or something, but not always.

Cheap summer camp, day care, etc. Or leave the kids with the oldest sibling and hope for the best.

I was wondering in trepidation what would happen if it got bad enough in the US, could we have a medical draft of nurses and doctors or anyone who has ever been certified to man improvised sick buildings? I would hate it as the thought of my wife being drafted and leaving me with 4 kids is terrifying.

  

Seriously, how bad would it have to get here before we started entertaining such out of tbe box approaches?  Is tbe reason tbis seems so far fetched because we can intuitively understand the need to band together to fight a human threat but not a biological one?

 

If they went that route, the most likely way is by using the Selective Service.  But it would take an act of Congress in order to reinstate it (I guess, with Rump you never know).

He’s done a great deal more than that.  He said this was less than the flu and the coverage a hoax.

 

I see what you're saying. My point was that he's so focused on himself and trying to keep being president. This virus and his handling of it is not good for his election chances except among the most rabid of his cult.

Can anyone smart confirm for me that this is essentially a snake-oil salesman?  I see him pushing colloidal silver which I know I have heard about recently.  My sister is pushing this guy and I need an educated retort to explain to her its crap.  Feel free to be condescending otherwise she will know I didn’t write it.
