The guy with the AK-47 fired 5 times at the driver, missed all 5 shots, and the driver fired back 3 times.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronavirus-florida-covid-deaths-record-third-day-straight/ Florida reported 253 new COVID-19 related deaths on Thursday. The fatalities mark the third day in a row that the Sunshine State has reported its highest single-day death toll during the pandemic.The Florida Department of Health on Tuesday reported 186 new deaths due to COVID-19. The next day, that number jumped to 216. Both records were eclipsed Thursday when 9,943 additional COVID cases were also confirmed by the state's department of health.More than 6,300 people in Florida have now died from the disease, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. There are more than 460,000 cases across the state, and over 26,000 hospitalizations. This comes as the U.S. is fast approaching 4.5 million total cases and at least 151,0...
Starting to formulate worst age group is give or take a few years from 30. This lot seems to be about this age or younger. Like I said, many of those born after 1990 are shocked, SHOCKED! that actions have consequences. They expect to grab people, pour coffee on them, throw molotov cocktails at things, and are absolutely gobsmacked when somebody fights back or a cop arrests them.If you look at arrests, unlike previous social discord in the USA, the average age of the arrested protesters is about 30. Some are 28, others 32, but all around that 1990 timeframe. I do remember in the mid-late 90s the whole participation trophy/self-esteem/whole math thing was in full force.
How many people die from flu each year in US?While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010.https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html
The important questions:1. How did the division get so deep?2. What can be done to bring people back into closer agreement?
WookieMan saysviral infection that kills only 3.9% of those infected@WookieMan you might be quoting the "case fatality rate" there, referring to people who have gotten sick enough to see a doctor and become a "case" thereby.The infection fatality rate is only 0.3%, less than one tenth of the case fatality rate.That is, only about 0.3% of people who get infected with the virus end up dying from it. The large majority of the infected have very mild symptoms or none at all.

theoakman saysI would go one further and suggest that we do what cyclists do to dope. They harvest their red blood cells, store them, and inject them to up their RBC count.Which begs my question, where's this American Dream Team, the bioworld equivalent of the "1992 Barcelona Olympics US men's b-ball" squad with the best and brightest, solving this problem?According to rdm and others, they should be fully engaged in treatment protocols and medicines and that as amateurs, we know nothing.Instead, I see conforming corporatists, who're working non-stop on highly expensive and perhaps even doubtful solutions.

Two anecdotal pieces:1) My sister who teaches said both parents and teachers want school open, but it's the union leaders who are trying to keep it all shut down. She said the unions are completely lying about what people want due to politics. 2. My kids started school today - mask free - in person. There a huge uptick in private school enrollment with all the local options now carrying a massive waiting list. Public schools will now start having serious competition in the months/years to come.
SunnyvaleCA saysWuFlu, even after just a few months, was already 1/7th as deadly as AIDS Imagine how bad AIDS would be if they had not found treatments. They still have no vaccine. Bill Gates has like 7 vaccines for Covid-19! He's gonna mass produce the one that works, as soon as he figures out which one that is. Remember the DOS patches? It's going to be like that.

Just wait until the Asians are taught by Black woke-ass teachers.
