    Notice Bill didn’t show a picture of Biden when he mentioned hope.

    This is a whole bunch of people that can’t stand to live with themselves.
    So dependent of others to make themselves feel significant.

    Mahars opinions can make me bristle at times but this one I agree with. I do not watch the news anymore because I am soooo tired of the doomsday headlines being spat in my face *constantly*

    I wish that the messaging about this disease was more balanced. The best description is high hospitalization rate and once we get it controlled we can be like South Korea. Precautions in SK are in place but business continues carefully and quarantine is implemented selectively

    I’m 71. This disease terrifies me whenever I go shopping and I see most people are ignoring it.

    It’s a good point: when the media isn’t telling me how many people are dead, or questioning whether we are doing enough, or should have done it sooner, it’s telling me how bad the economy is because of what we’re doing. Those, including the media, who keep asking “how much is this going to cost?” simply have to accept that it will cost significantly more, in both lives AND money, if we try to fight the virus and revive the economy at the same time and somehow manage to not do either very well. Millions of sick and dead people don’t make good employees or customers either.

    The problem is the performance of producers/editors are often measured by ratings/pageranks… the numbers seen by prospective advertisers… that’s why they sell sensation in news

    I think we get your point but your lack of sensitivity that most people are really fucking hurting right now just makes you look like an asshole, Bill.

    Bill is so old, rich, and white that he’s finally leaning right by cozying up to Republicans letting them spew their baseless Trump defenses and not calling them on it and now he’s even bashing the media smh

    With so much dangerous & stupid going on during this pandemic from Trump and others on the right, Bill continues to do these bizarre hit pieces that are weird little obsessions in his head. No one is telling you Bill that you can’t have hope. Stop smoking the weed.

    Bill, sometimes so right, sometimes so frickin wrong.
    My car accident doesn’t kill my doctor.
    My diabetes doesn’t kill my nurse.
    You praise doctors and nurses “in the front lines”, like the virus only attacks hospitals. The front line starts with you.
    This thing is not diabetes, is not the flu, and it’s darn serious.
    This is not about your “liberty”.
    All the death of Coronavirus is ON TOP of all the other stuff you mention.
    Don’t conflate things.

    Most on point Bill has been in awhile. The sensationalization of media to get clicks and money is a scourge. This is why Trump won and it’s why our democracy is a marching towards disaster.

    hes right on the money with this! in the UK the media was thrashing out headlines like “Killer Virus on the loose” and “Disease X will come to UK” and the government since they are populated with halfwits to begin with READ THE MEDIA and listened to a bunch of doomsaying doctors armed to the teeth with faulty statistical computer models going back 50+ YEARS and drove the entire western economy off a bloody cliff! for absolutley no reason whatsoever.

    Cancel my HBO! I’ve been a Bill fan for decades and now I’m DONE! Let that rich old white man hide in his Hollywood mansion while WE go out and DIE? FUCK YOU, BILL! I’ve watched Bill slide slowly more toward right wing ideas but at this point, I literally may as well be listening to Trump! Sorry you rich fucks don’t get to go out to fancy restaurants any more but tough shit! I’m not getting a deadly disease while you luxuriate at home! If the economy is suffering, then maybe we need a NEW KIND of economy that doesn’t say poor people are expendable GUINEA PIGS in a game of Russian Roulette with a deadly disease the RICH can avoid and ignore. No test for YOU, Bill! Get Covid & choke on it!

    Sharing info I’ve gathered so far, related to this FEAR/SCAMdemic… knowledge is power. Freedom isn’t free. We have to stand up, speak up, work for it. Anyone who thinks I’m wrong look at EVERYTHING I’ve shared before responding.
    It is our individual response ability to look at a wide range of perspectives and personal experiences, and Not buy anything any One sells us, as if they know better. No One knows better. As someone injured by just one flu shot I am passionate about sharing my perspectives, along with others who have had various challenges following vaccines, from minor to death. We have to accept response ability for ourselves, our children, our health, and not ever assume someone we think should know better, does. Too many do not from my experience. We have to educate ourselves. Look deeper, at reality, over propaganda, media influence… owned by corporations that are invested in making money, having control, NOT in our wellbeing. We are naive to believe everything were being sold. It wasn’t so long ago we were told smoking and many other things, now known to be the opposite, were healthy for us. We’re naive to not look back at history and think anything like that could ever happen again, as in Nazi Germany. This is what I’ve gathered so far, mostly through YouTube, a lot from comments…

    There’s a few quotes I see as relevant …
    •”Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of (hu)men(s) as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” <3 ...Helen Keller
    •"It is easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they have been fooled." -Mark Twain
    •"One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws."-Martin Luther King Jr
    •"If a law is unjust, a (hu)man is not only right to disobey it, (s)he is obligated to do so."-Thomas Jefferson
    •"Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves."-Hebert David Thoreau
    •"The power of effecting change for the better is within ourselves, not in the favourableness of circumstances."-Helen Keller
    •"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning."-Albert Einstein
    •"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back."-Carl Sagan. It's called Cognitive Dissonance
    •"You can lead a horse to water. You can't make them drink."

    “A time comes when silence is betrayal. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one's own bosom and in the surrounding world."-Martin Luther King Jr.
    "To a degree, academic freedom is a reality today because Socrates practiced civil disobedience. In our own nation, the Boston Tea Party represented a massive act of civil disobedience.
    We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal." It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers..."-Martin Luther King
    "When injustice becomes resistance law becomes duty."-Thomas Jefferson

    “The people’s silence is a tyrant’s greatest advocate. The less captives talked, the less they knew; the less they knew, the more they feared; and the more they feared, the more easily others could manipulate them to their own ends, the more easily the captives could be controlled.” – John Kramer, Blythe.
    "To violate man’s rights means to compel him to act against his own judgment, or to expropriate his values. Basically, there is only one way to do it: by the use of physical force. There are two potential violators of man’s rights: the criminals and the government. The great achievement of the United States was to draw a distinction between these two — by forbidding to the second the legalized version of the activities of the first.
    It cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals — that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government — that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizens’ protection against the government."-Ayn Rand

    It is pretty damn amazing that most of the “spiking and surging states” are states that locked down too late, reopened too early, and/or didn’t have too bad an outbreak earlier (but are definitely getting them now) and the states that bit the bullet and are now gradually reopening are doing quite well. Granted, California (one of the earliest states to lock down) is seeing surges, though not as bad as Florida and Arizona. But at least these states are pressing on the brakes again and urging mask wearing and social distancing. So, hopefully, we can see the rates in these states heading downward soon, and that we won’t see the COVID19 daily death rate (which is currently below 500, and was well over 2,000 in April) spike as well. But we’ll know in a few weeks.

    But we will get through this. We need to stop the scary headlines and work on protecting ourselves and our loved ones. We have no control how others react to the virus. They will have their own reactions. We need to work around this virus and focusing on what unites rather than divides us. As Americans, we sink or swim together.
