13 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 1 week = 1664, next week = 212,992 and everyone else in the next day, at the double each day rate.

What I find fascinating is that there are those who express bizarre conspiracy theories or suggest resistance to isolation are just increasingly marginalized and ignored. These children need to be placed in another room and just ignored….and they are now.


I am serious. The resistance and conspiracy oriented may be Russian disinformation agents. I now it sounds loony, but I watched them operate in our 2016 elections. The same posters with american and confederate symbols, often supporting Trump or Jill Stein, would post conspiracy and crazy messages. Later I saw the same posters encouraging the Russian troops in the Ukraine and fawn over Putin.

As I posted earlier, under “So riddle me this” post, this is the next round of BS designed by Moscow to undermine the west during our crises.

Sadly, those numbers will increase with more testing.

How can any rational person vote such a comment down?

Yeah, it does make you wonder, doesn’t it?

A family friend was not feeling well a few days ago. He did exactly what he was supposed to, called ahead to the doctor, they asked if he had a fever and he said no so they told him to come in. He asked just for.peace of mind if he could just be tested for Coronavirus and the doctor told him that they are only testing people who have come in direct contact with someone who has tested positive for it. That seems very confusing to me, kind of like which came first the chicken or the egg. He’s feeling much better but the logic the doctor used left me feeling less than confident.
