    ...between 45 and 60% of Twitter accounts discussing covid-19. Many of those accounts were created in February and have since been spreading and amplifying misinformation, including false medical advice, conspiracy theories about the origin of the virus, and pushes to end stay-at-home orders and reopen America.

    And 100% of these made up stories made it to the locker room (as well as the oval office)...

    I have about 3-4 women who email me and tell me that they are lonely and only 2 miles from me. I call, I email yet these poor lonely women never get my messages.

    I’m starting to think maybe they are bots and not really ridiculously hot lonely women looking for me to contact them.

    I know of very few who want to remain in lockdown and less that consider this BS the "new normal". Its pretty simple really, if you are afraid stay home, if you are not you need to be able to live your life without Mr Levine's restrictions.

    If I had to guess the public perception of this shutdown, I’d bet money the majority are more for opening it up while pushing social distancing vs the continued shutdown besides life sustaining businesses.

    like anything, most are in middle. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being open everything up and go back to normal, 10 is shut everything down but life sustaining businesses, wear masks and latex gloves and keep your kids locked inside, I’d bet most in this country are in the 3 or 4 area.

    You don't have to guess. There's plenty of polling of your points.

    Is there? What’s the verdict? I’m asking in all sincerity?


    I feel like these polls are biased. I bet there are polls that say open it up and these governors are all socialist pigs and I bet there are polls that say we are all gonna die if we don’t stay inside.

    The majority are not for opening things up too quickly without restrictions. I posted this from TheBulwark a fews days back.

    We more or less have this:

    [​IMG]

    We have a “don’t wear masksmovement that overlaps almost entirely with the “reopen immediately” movement.

    That's the twitter/facebook/blog misinformation effect in green. Really dumb people in opposition of their own stated objective.

    Anybody wanna take a bet that Joeycovid either dismisses this or completely iGnores it because it advances the blue team agenda.


    A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal — to combat online efforts to promote President Trump’s handling of the coronaviruspandemic.

    The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country — in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president.

    Since I am not on Twitter I guess my opinion actually was formed without social media. And I have looked at the science and data. OPEN NOW.

    Its funny I haven't met one person who doesn't want to open America. Not one and I ask people some randomly.

    I heard two talk show hosts who talk to hundreds, thousands of people say the same thing.

    I ask my neighbors same answer, I tried, I'm done,open up America.

    I ask people at our golf club same answers.

    Some are concerned but want to open America!

    Open up America!

    You don't need to be in twitter to be exposed to misinformation that flowed through twitter.

    Btw, the poster child for regurgitating nonsense liked your comment. That alone would have an average joe rethinking their comment.

    And why are you connected me to him. I don’t know him. I don’t know what he does. Here in the case in point. It is really simple. The premise is that the cause and effect is social interaction. Okay I will situate that’s true. The virus only travels 6 feet not 6”1’. This weekend people are going to the Fairfax county parks. In seven days the hospital should be overrun with CoVid 19 cases. Are you willing to bet on that?

    not surprising you’re against freedom of speech and using military technology to advance the blue team agenda.

    Is the technology or the use thereof proprietary to the military? Would you object to it being used to advance the red team agenda?

    Because he's liking your comments.

    Your math is wrong on the incubation period and being outside in a park isn't the issue especially if they are being responsible.

    Pretty funny reading a guy arguing with himself then calling himself stupid.

    This is Buffet level work right here. Please continue...

    BTW, it's important to log into your other account if you want people to buy the story...

    Think everyone wants to "open up America"...just like, everybody wants to avoid waking up one night with 103 fever and a bad cough. Question has always been...how do you do it as safely as possible, and when.

    My issue -- and this should be everyone's issue -- is seeing so many morons...selfish and/or ignorant people...refusing to wear masks and keeping appropriate distance in crowded areas. These are the people that ruin it for everyone else, and put my loved ones in unnecessary danger.

    NC's COVID-19 test

    1. Why is it recommended to wear masks?

    2. Why is your previous question irrelevant given the correct answer to question 1?

    Not sure what you're trying to get at....but I can tell you that my family members are intelligent and considerate enough to make sure that, if and when they are out and about, they are wearing masks.

    He doesn't understand that it's recommended that you wear a mask to protect others.

    I wear masks.

    I just wonder why someone is worried about catching it if they take protective measures. Could it be that they aren't really taking those measures? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Btw, I've researched the mask thing. What type of mask should be worn and where do you get it? If you can't get it, should you just throw on anything?
