I honestly cannot call to mind a single member with a worse track record on this subject.

If Fauci doesn't think a lockdown will be helpful in August, that'll be because people like you weren't listening in March. Had you perfectly replicated the New Zealand model and seen an identical death rate eventuate, fewer than two thousand people would have died in the United States and you would now be in a position to discontinue all social distancing. I do not understand how you can portray that as nothing more than "a temporary fix to a long term problem" unless you were making a philosophical statement on mortality and the inevitability of death.
Sweden’s strategy worked tho

Every other country in Europe is in the midst of a second wave and Sweden appears to have it controlled

Sweden's strategy has yet to produce the kind of statistics you'd expect from one that worked. What have you seen that has convinced you so?

Denmark, for example, was one of the first in the region to go into a nationwide lockdown and ultimately kept venues on the level of restaurants closed for two months. The outcome of this from a neighboring country has been significantly fewer deaths and a better economic outlook, which is why pushing the Sweden angle just looks really uninformed at this point.



(as of 31 July 2020)

Quote:
In June, the OECD’s biannual Economic Outlook summary put the full-year GDP growth forecast for Sweden between -7.8% and -6.7%, depending on the severity of a potential second wave. It puts Denmark slightly ahead with between -7.1% and -5.8%, with estimates for the UK (between -14% and -11%) and the U.S. (-8.5% or -7.3%) noticeably worse.

The European Commission is slightly less dismal, estimating a eurozone GDP decline for the year of 8.7%, but Sweden (-5.3%) and Denmark (-5.25%) as the second and third best-performing member states after Poland (-4.5%).

Okay, and my point is that Sweden will avoid a second wave while those other countries will.

You'd really want to be right about something like that if the buy-in is five times as many deaths per capita. Like, it'd be super awkward if it turned out that needlessly killing a few thousand citizens didn't net out as a positive somehow.

that's a lie

They have had 84,000 confirmed cases. 68,000 active cases. More than 5,700 people have died. That's a 6.8% death rate.

In the past three days they've reporte over 1,200 new cases. While cases per day peaked 5 weeks ago for the past 2-3 weeks their rate of new cases has hovered between 200 and 700 per day. Today Sweden reported 427 new cases.



I oscillate widely between thinking you a pure troll or plain stupid. This one could go either way

I think you mean "oscillate," honey bun.

"Osculate" means kiss, as in "I widely osculated your dad's gooch."

trump administration has issued travel warning for New Zeeland. Because they have 23 new cases of COVID

Quote:
The US Government has warned its citizens to be very cautious about travelling to New Zealand because of our "23 active cases" of Covid-19.

Despite the US recording more than 2 million cases and 160,000 deaths, the government is advising against travelling to New Zealand.

According to the US government's travel advice website, it called for increased caution when travelling here.

I saw that I was going to be treated as an outsider. So rather than play along, which is what you’re supposed to do, I decided to play heel, in wrestling parlance, and have fun with it,” he says. “I think I represent the true American value, which is the independent spirit…if that makes me a heel in modern America, I’m fine to be a heel. I’d rather be that heel than the babyface who goes along to get along.”

These trolls keep tricking us into appearing unintelligent and our posts seem like wasted time! It's us in that position, y'all!

I will always refer to y'all as y'all when I backtrack like this.
