    We will see about that. People know that they can vote in private and they will do the right thing in November. If you want socialism, vote for Biden. The majority of Americans who love this country aren't that stupid.

    You can call me names and fit me into the group you hate with one tidy label if it makes you feel better. But I'll remain independent and unaffiliated, though ever concerned about the extreme health calamity described to me by my sources -- doctors and nurses that I personally know working in hospitals.

    you say...

    "If they start online and the numbers start going down, then I'm sure they will reassess opening up."

    We've ALREADY flattened the curve. We have a few PREDICTABLE SPIKES in states that are now being infected by summer birds from NY, NJ, CONN, MASS, etc....
    WE GET IT.

    Still the numbers succumbing to Covid are WAY DOWN!

    Your age group has a higher probability of dying from a drug overdose, the FLU, or just about anything else.

    I would submit that you have been overtaken by the hysteria, rather than following the science.

    MOST STUDENTS, especially in counties with ZERO COVID DEATHS, have almost no risk.

    Can you give me a scientific reason to keep these K - 12 students from returning.

    NYC, LA, or other tightly packed areas, with PC wimps running the show? NO WORRIES! Pay those teachers to golf! God bless those brave teachers, and pray their handicap drops.

    fuck the kids. Let them rot on the couch.

    I'm not required to agree with you 100% of the time, and the moment I don't, I've fallen victim to the hysteria. Sounds about right.

    I get your argument, I really do. It's just that in the current climate, I don't think opening schools can be done with EVERYBODY'S safety in mind. Schools aren't just kids only. There are bound to be countless transmissions between adults. Lunch ladies to lunch ladies, principals to teachers, teachers to teachers, teachers to paraprofessionals. The list goes on. If only kids were the concern, schools would probably be open.

    People only believe sources that fit their own narrative. We have become a nation of Confirmation Bias.

    And the excuses to disregard them are an open admission of this. Sure, we like to hide behind the mantra of “Fake news!” but really, few if any actually know what’s fake and what’s real. Heck, I’ve looked through synonyms.com and thesaurus.com, and neither of these pages lists “left-leaning” or “right-leaning” as synonyms for “fake.” But that’s usually all anyone used to make their call.

    So few people are open-minded. The best you can do is at least not pretend to be...

    Wow, when have we ever agreed on anything in this thread?

Positive tests come back negative upon retesting and vice versa. We all know that the data has been horribly skewed as is most data to support a certain perspective. It is a shame that this crisis has become so politicized. I'm sorry but I do not consider you to be anymore of an authority with respect to this crisis than the many many educated people who present a different point of view. We will continue to take care of ourselves as well as we can.
    Nor do I claim to be. I am just another guy with an opinion. That said, as another poster once wrote on a different Sox forum, "not all opinions are created equal". Those that are backed up by facts are more credible than those which are not.
