Joe Biden Didn't Help Himself With Atlanta Speech
"Put Joe Biden's approval rating at 33%. Four points lower than Donald Trump ever got. He's heading into Nixon at resignation land. And I know those numbers well, because I used to run the Nixon library. And I don't think he helped himself. Do you? Joe talent? No. Absolutely not. Look, if I wanted to infer a rational, politically rational motive, which I'm not sure I should do, because I'm not sure they're acting rationally at this stage. I would say they're looking at numbers and they're losing parts of their own base. Their own voters. And so they're trying to motivate their own voters are demotivated. So they're trying to motivate them by going out and waving these bloody shirts all over the place. Now the problem with that you and the reason why that's not going to work and will make it worse among other things is that they're going to fail. This is not going to work. And
Biden, Fauci Complain About the Unvaccinated
"Yesterday was a remake of grumpy old men with President Biden and Doctor Fauci playing and reprising the roles of water math out and Jack Lemmon yelling at us. Just yelling at us and going off the rails in both cases, or do I overstate it? No, I don't think you do. I'm more worried about Biden because he's going to be running the entire executive branch for the next couple of years or at least until his ticker keeps keeps beating. Fauci, I feel like he's less of a figure in this. I feel like Americans are kind of evolving past this omicron is different from past waves. I'm not saying it's nothing to worry about. It's a really super duper contagious, but for most if you're vaccinated and boosted, this is going to be a cold. This is going to be worse this is turning to a bad flu season. And that's pretty manageable. Now, unfortunately, we've got both by the way. I checked the numbers this morning. We're beyond 86% of U.S. adults who have at least one shot. Okay. So I feel like I want to hear Biden and Fauci stop complaining about the

"first wave" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"While white ambassadors may drift toward more radical expressions of Christian nationalism following January 6th, the shocking footage and scrutiny toward such views may be causing a larger portion of Americans to draw sharper distinctions between the religious and political spheres. Second, leaders who leverage reactionary religious rhetoric for political gain can be confronted, deplatforming Trump and just this weekend, Marjorie Taylor Greene were positive steps because studies show deep platforming such actors can be effective. But Trump's prominent evangelical allies, like Robert jeffress, surrogates like Michael Flynn and other political disciples like Josh mandel and Lauren bobert continued to spout Christian nationalist rhetoric and conspiratorial propaganda to millions, given the potential success of deplatforming, we must find additional avenues through which we can directly confront the explicit threat of white Christian nationalism in our politics and our congregations. Yet we must also remember that the enemy isn't religion, deeply religious citizens, or even the influence of religion on American politics. The vast majority of Americans are religious, Christian, in fact, the most devout of these Americans love their neighbors enrich their communities and value liberal democracy. Rather than denounce any trace of religion and politics, we think it better to amplify the kind of religious expression that accomplishes democratic goals. Americans are right to be concerned about the threat of religious violence from an ethno religious subculture that's growing increasingly isolated and paranoid. But that group remains the minority, and they can be confronted with a sacred commitment decreed that at their best unite all Americans regardless of ethnic or religious identity, legal equality, full democratic representation, freedom of speech, and of course. Religious freedom for all..
"first wave" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Within that time, the percentage of white ambassadors who felt the rioters should be prosecuted, dropped over 22 points from 76.3% to 54.2%. Even more striking, the percentage of white ambassadors who said they stood on the side of the rioters doubled from 13.6% to over 27%. Why did these white Christian nationalists start to identify more with the rioters? Our August 2021 survey suggests several reasons. First is loyalty to Trump, nearly 92% of white ambassadors voted for him in 2020, and compared to roughly 36% of Americans who believe the presidential election was stolen from Trump, nearly two and a half times that percentage of white ambassadors 86% held this view in August. But why are they still so convinced the election was a sham, and several studies we and other scholars have shown that Christian nationalism seems to incline white Americans toward baseless, conspiracy theories. For example, in our August 2021 data, we find that half of white ambassadors believe falsely, that the COVID-19 vaccines have themselves killed hundreds of people. And less than one third were willing to reject the outrageous QAnon conspiracy about government elites running a Satan worshiping pedophile sex trafficking ring. Just as disturbing, white Christian nationalists are also isolating themselves within more homogeneous social groups. New experimental research shows that the more right-wing Americans isolate themselves within communities, who only share their moral worldviews, the more they express radical intentions and a willingness to fight or die for their group. Add to this the fact that white Americans who subscribe to Christian nationalism are not only increasingly getting their news from certain platforms and right wing news sources, but they are believing the narratives being shared. Which narratives you ask? Among the central unifying narratives within white Christian nationalist ideology is that of victimization. It's not just due to demographic transitions that their clear electoral majority is no longer a given, though research shows the threat of immigration and minority status does make whites more Christian nationalist. It's that they genuinely believe they are persecuted. In our August survey, we gave Americans a list of social groups and asked them to pick which group faces the most discrimination these days. Nearly 76% of white ambassadors said that either whites or Christians faced the most discrimination. But what's most troubling is where this could all lead, the trends we cited above show that white Americans who subscribed to Christian nationalism are warming up to the attempted insurrection, but does this portend more political violence? We think it could. In our August 2021 survey, we found roughly 46% of white ambassadors agree, there is a storm coming soon that will sweep away elites in power and restore rightful leaders, and 40% agreed things have gotten so far off track in our country that true American patriots may have to resort to physical violence in order to save our country. Other polls report similar findings. For example, in their September 2021 survey, the public religion research institute found that roughly one third of whites who believe God granted America a special role in human history, completely agreed that patriotic violence may be necessary to save the nation. Another poll shows a greater comfort with the use of force to achieve political ends among political conservatives. But there is reason for hope. First, multiple polling firms like Pew Research Center and pri, are documenting that overt support for Christian nationalist views is declining in the general population..
"first wave" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"January 6th may have been only the first wave of Christian nationalist violence by Samuel L Perry and Andrew Whitehead, Perry is an associate Professor of sociology at the university of Oklahoma, Whitehead is an associate Professor of sociology at Indiana University Purdue university Indianapolis. They co authored the book taking America back for God, Christian nationalism in the United States, which won the 2021 distinguished book award from the society for the scientific study of religion. A year after the horrifying violence at the capitol on January 6th, 2021, a simple partisan storyline crowds at a central driver behind the events. Most media are understandably tracking the January 6 commission and Trump's Republican accomplices, and many pollsters have focused on the growing partisan divides regarding Trump's role in the events, or whether rioters should be prosecuted. Largely forgotten, unless we look back at countless photos and footage of the violence, are the Christian banners and flags the wooden crosses the impromptu praise and worship sessions. The Jesus saves signs, the Christian t-shirts, and the infamous corporate prayer in Jesus name in the Senate chamber. Having stormed the sanctum of American democracy, the kuhnen shaman thanked God for filling this chamber with patriots that love you and that love Christ, allowing them to send a message to their enemies that this is our nation, not theirs. We are forgetting that January 6th was very much a religious event white Christian nationalism on display. We must remember that fact, because evidence is mounting that white Christian nationalism can provide the theological cover for more events like it. For several years, we've measured Christian nationalist ideology by asking Americans a series of questions like whether they believed the government should declare the U.S. a Christian nation, or whether they reject the separation of church and state, or whether they think America's success is part of God's plan. We call those who score roughly in the top 20% of our scale, ambassadors of Christian nationalism. They are the true believers. That is around 30 million adults, and our recent findings suggest they're growing more accepting of the insurrection on January 6th. In February 2021, we asked Americans for their thoughts about the capitol riots. Then we queried those same Americans 7 months later in August to see how their views shifted..
Is There Any Good News at All on Omicron? Yes!
"A lot of people are going to get COVID. A lot of people are getting COVID. But the good news is, we could be in for a short ride. Here's cut number 6. Doctor Scott gottlieb, the former FDA commissioner on she NBC yesterday. There's so much confusion and so much unknown about what to do with this point. What do you tell people? What do you tell schools? What do you tell parents? You know, the first thing I'd say is that we've said this before. So I appreciate there's diminished credibility, but this is not going to last very long. We're going to be in the throes of this wave of infection. For maybe a month here in the northeast, I think you're going to see infections peak out within the next two weeks. So hopefully New York City does find a peak within the next two weeks. London, which is about two to three weeks behind New York City, has already peaked. There's probably on the way down. So this is a very fast moving wave of infection on the back end of this. Hopefully we're done with COVID for a while. We'll have enough immune population between vaccination or infections. So we really need to get through this month. Can I get your reaction to the news that communities are literally discriminating against white people, giving prefer and the argument is, well, people of color have a greater vulnerability to COVID than white people. What? Really?

We have to worry about infection. And now they're sophisticated enough that i'm not sure that talking about the side effect profile. These madison's is is something that we really need to do very much of. I don't wanna be live about it. But and i do make those discussions. But it's a lot less intensive discussion than it was in two thousand and five thousand absolutely absolutely and i still think that patients on biologics and a lot of times we're asked you know do would you hesitate in using or starting biologic during this pandemic and knowing what you know and actually based on what i know. I'm actually more excited. And feel that. I would like to start more patients on it knowing to the potential scientific benefits that these biologics could have on unproven of course but it seems that these from even from early early part of the pandemic in march when an article was released on the a cases in new york that found that the majority of the patients that were on biologics remained ambulatory and not hospitalize and those that were on systemic. Like methotrexate and jack inhibitors. Which we don't use in a foreskin psoriasis. We do use for psoriatic arthritis but not skins arises but in terms of the biologics. That we use for skin psoriasis. We found that These patients remain more. Ambulatory may remain a symptomatic in usually do not have a prolonged or more protracted course or more severe courson and are not more prone to getting cove nineteen and as we know. That's likely because of its effect on the side of kind storm that we love to use that term. We love to use the storm the site or well and the other thing says their psoriasis is better yeah reduces inflammation and all those sorts of things. We discussed As well and it's been it's been an adventure learning about all this end the ideas with regard to If we can get the inflammation down we get people under control instead of going in having thirty forty fifty percent body surface area involvement. They have nothing you can't it just makes common sense that they're going to do better with other illnesses. I just can't imagine that that wouldn't be the case so it has it has to be. I mean we're. We're seeing this overall. And i tried to explain to the patient that their immune system is not being lowered and i think that we are getting questions now at least here in ontario as their patients are not trying to. But it's almost like a little fight for the vaccine isn't it how. How can i get the vaccine earlier for those that. Want to get the vaccine. Maybe that's reminiscent of the of the food lines that happen during world war. Two or something you know how can i. How can i get in in. We find that in this in this in this world that bypassing or going to the front of the line has very severe consequences at this is not to be fooled with and has As we say front page of the of the newspaper isn't it and we always say front page of the globe and mail. All the time isn't that isn't that true. Always say never national poster. It's always in front page of the global mail only or canada so the front page of the national post. But you know they. You don't wanna you don't wanna bypass the line but patients are calling in saying since i'm on an immunosuppressant would qualify to get the vaccine earlier..

"Way. And so whether they had the type one inflammatory or the or the type to vascular and they recognize patients. I don't think really understand. But they know when they hop rashes or spots that come up that something may be wrong and they go to get tested they wanna know themselves but if they symtomatic but i think that they may not realize that they're doing it for somebody else. It's really to protect other people and to stop this type of of outbreak to happen and to protect their family members. I i'm not really sure. Patients truly realized that. That's that's what they're really doing well in my practice. What i've seen is a lot of family doctor setting in photographs and it's often of this. What you and. I would have called a viral example. You have to say yeah. Yeah yeah this is probably viral anthem. Medication history that sort of thing but at the end of the story. I'm always say well. What's a covert test. you know. They should really go for a cova test. And and i. As i'm saying that i'm thinking to myself man my over calling this but i guess in the in the in the sense of this pandemic with rising cases i'm not but your point You know it it. I should prefaces with listen. If these people want to protect others in their family. This should really go get test diagnostically. It's not important so exactly. And i think that you know it's important now for finding subtypes and variants and and so forth for for study purposes to see how things are going and see if you're a superspreader or not but i think that that dermatologist In at least in community practice are seeing less and less of this probably because they family practitioners are recognizing more and more but it was the dermatologist that realized that this was a manifestation of early covert. It wasn't just fever it wasn't just shortness of breath at it wasn't a just a general malaise but it was this type of a either more macular pappy rash morvillo former eruption or vascular lesions. That occurred and i'm not aware that this was associated with any worst prognosis. Either which is which is good. Okay so we have these people with their rashes in we get called about go. Get your covert deaths. And now we're talking about vaccine. And i wanted to take a bit because you've put a couple of other really nice pieces together about this. Pandemic related to your group is rises patients and related to their thoughts on vaccination and i. I know it's off topic but we published it is. We're gonna publish more from you on this. So maybe you could enlighten us. Give us a bit of heads up on what you've discovered in this population of story addicts. That are on biologic therapy. And what what's their thought on vaccination and the voice of these of this illness so as we know vaccination which has been a difficult out in in canada although we you know we certainly compared to other countries however vaccination is key patients need to get vaccinated. It's not mandatory. However i i'm not sure what prompted me to investigate. This was patients confusion so before the vaccine came out and we knew vaccine was going to come out and we knew we thought scientifically these were going to be killed vaccines. I remember telling patients and this became a confusion that started with the zoster. Vaccine that it was a a live attenuated vaccine and patients. We told them. Do not get do. Not get the vaccine of the shingles. Unless you're off your biologic it'll work better And so forth and then. The newer killed vaccine. The newer generation killed vaccine came out and then patients says while i can't get the shingles vaccine are so now you can. I thought you couldn't. Then they got very very confused. So what prompted is is i i we had. I had permission from all my patients that we were able to obtain email addresses early in the pandemic new to the virtual nature of the visits. Is that we had consent to be able to send them notices and to send them a questionnaires. They had consented to that. And so i did. A in my. Emr of patients the early time that we had email addresses. Now i i recently checked my earmarked for the total number of patients that have in myanmar for all diseases. And also the total number of psoriasis. Patients i had now. I thought i had a lot of psoriasis patients and i i guess i do and i asked another colleague. I said how many's rises someone. Who deals deals a lot with horizon. Biologic i said how many biologic patients do you think you have. And she answered. I don't know maybe like three thousand. I said i think you have to have more than that. And and i served my art. And i found out i had thirty seven hundred or so. The psoriasis patients. And i'm like. I really thought i had more than that. Because we see people over and over so i was thinking you know maybe we had more so three thousand over. Three thousand seven hundred distinct. Now this was early aren't we didn't have everybody's email addresses so at that time we had six hundred sixty one. It patients with email addresses is is what we had and we sent them a google forms type of survey something very very easy and you know we just ask them. You know what's the bottom line like you know you know what a live vaccine. Is you know what a killed vaccine is if you can take alive or kill vaccine and then sorta to get an idea. We had a patient that we wanted to have a control group. So those were the non biologics non biologics so we looked at biologics and non violent. We were able to to to separate them because we sent them out at times and so we didn't we weren't we didn't have to to data mining and get the to find out what they were on and we asked if they got a flu shot or not and When you when you look at the the study group is when you look at the study group. And the control group of of psoriasis. And not at didn't seem to matter if they were on biologics or not. We thought that maybe a biologic patient with things because of increase upper respiratory tract infection. Which you to talk about later we can because. I'm not really sure that we're going to see as much of that as we thought we did. In in the clinical studies right in the clinical studies always upper you are ti and nato pharyngitis is number one. I think that's gonna be decreased but we we see this patient of those biologics not biologics sixty percent of them said that they don't even get the flu shot and no reason given we didn't need a reason and whether they were on biologics whether they're on biologics or not and then we asked. Did you understand the difference between live in killed vaccines and we had. We had about about twenty five percent of all respondents. Just were really unsure. They were really really unsure and those that said yes. You know i do understand. That was the that was the control group and about thirty percent of them said yet. I i know what a what a What alive at a killed vaccine. And i know the difference and then and then and then you took the biologic patients and they said more of them said yes. I know the difference because you would assume that they would have been educated by the dermatologist. Which happened to be me. The difference between a live in a killed vaccine. 'cause i would say okay. You can take the flu vaccine. It's killed.

What's going on inside. Well that's dr. Ron vendor the founder and director dermot trials research inc. bender innovations in psoriasis. He's our guest in this episode of jason author interviews. I'm your host kurt. Farber an editor in chief of the journal cutaneous medicine and surgery. I'm a clinical professor of medicine at the university calgary today we're going to be discussing An article on covid nineteen lessons from the first wave of the pandemic skin features of covert nineteen. It can be divided into amador and vascular patterns that gardner bender and his co author published in our march april. Twenty one issue. Now i'm also going to ask dr vendor to help us understand and upcoming article. His related to his survey of his psoriasis patients with regard vaccination in one of her upcoming issues. I also want to remind you that. This article is available free on the jc events website. Outside of paywall for the next three weeks. So without further ado my interview with dr ron. Welcome to the podcast. And i'm really keen to have this conversation with you. It's always fun kirk. Thank you very much for having me on this podcast. it's i that. I have participated in in terms of speaking listened to to podcasts. So so listen. We're going to look at a couple of articles. All covert related. We've been through the first wave. We've been through the second way we've been through the third wave or go on through it at third way by gas but the drill here is that your article was about the first wave of the pandemic and first few months and i thought that article really put together very succinctly what dermatologists are going to see in patients. That were calvin positive. So what drove you to do this. Where'd you get your information. And what did you find out what prompted the article was the fact that again dermatology was deemed to be very important in almost again at the forefront of recognizing this new disease that have has changed our lives. And what again we learn throughout our at dermatology residency in throughout her career is that the skin is really the the window to what's going on inside and it gives very clue a lot of clues and it allows us to to help patients and friends that may have skin lesions that we can identify. And as i've said many times. Before i believe that dermatologists were really. I think truly a very special type of specialists. Were were the true. I think that true true specialists because when we look at skin lesions that people think it's like a bruise or like a high or like a master papier eruption are the most interesting thing you've ever seen it. We can look at it and say okay. You know this is. This is something vascular that's going on. This is something inflammatory. That's going on and we know that that is not the primary lesions or the primary problem. But maybe there's something going on inside. Maybe there's something that is a clue and it all started off with the covid toes. Didn't it where asians were coming in and saying. Look i have this bruising on my toes i'd never had before and then we dermatologist. Were putting together and say but you know you look so second is address fever and we didn't really know and i think that's when things started to get together and then of course the people over does that had nothing exactly so maybe they had nothing. Maybe they were simply a symptomatic. Maybe they were eliciting this immune response to the initial virus encounter and were the maybe asem dramatic koby patients. We don't really know we. Hopefully it would have been nice to be able to correlate to say that those that had kobe toes we know that they would be asymptomatic but there really was a mix between the two. So it wasn't it. Wasn't that simple but you know this started in february and march when the weather was colder in canada. So you think oh maybe rano have job lanes you know. Maybe that's what it is and then when you talk to the patient and took a history didn't really fit with that so we said hold on. These patients are sick Some of them are sick. And so maybe this is. We're going to call it covid. Titles but we had the advantage of course of of the europeans already. Having experienced a lot of this in we could look at what their experience wasn. But i really like the article. The way separated out the type one and type two. that sort of this is inflammatory versus vascular pattern. That seemed to be the way that things split themselves out now. Is it the same for the second wave. do you think in the same for the third wave it. I think that we're seeing less of this. Now why are we seeing less. This is it we meaning. The dermatologists are tall. Just seeing less of it because family doctors are recognizing emergency personnel recognizing and our being tested more rapidly and more frequently as well. Certainly the public is aware of any kind of fevers or chills or smiled shortness of breath. They're.

We're in a recovery summer right now, aren't we? We are. We're recovering from the first wave of covert 19. Maybe it's you know, up and down. And we've got a president who was attempting to rebuild the United States economy and the economic news, which we'll get to in just a minute is really good. Reuters tries to make it sound like we are almost finished. As a country. But remember the financial crisis in 2008. Barack Hussein. Oh, gets elected president in 2008 in part because John McCain suspended his campaign. When the financial crisis that, McCain said, you know, it wouldn't be fair for me to keep campaigning during the midst of the financial crisis, So I'm going to suspend my campaign. This is like Trying to get votes or people feeling sympathy for I don't know. But it didn't work. Because Obama didn't suspend his campaign. He kept campaigning and telling everybody what a dotty old guy McCain is. McCain's out there, not knowing what's going on. He's trying to be nice to Obama. He's not letting people mentioned Obama's middle name when they introduce you remember that he had an appearance in Cincinnati. And the guy that introduced McCain starts talking of a Barack Hussein Obama. McCain fired a guy so you don't ever going to appear in any of my rallies. We argue that we don't pronounce his middle name is why It's his middle name is discriminated try, he said. It's racist is being really happen happen. Not on my watch. Obama said they're watching this is how can I lose to this guy? So he gets elected. Stimulus plan, and he puts Biden in charge of recovery summer. Hey. So Biden was the vice president was in charge of recovery. Summer That was 2009. How did that work out? Not well, folks. There wasn't a recovery. We never had much of a recovery during the Obama administration. Remember, the these people were telling us we need to adapt to a new era of decline that America's best economic days are behind us. You know the drill here. So I think great topic for the first debate. Recovery Summers compare and contrast Trump and Biden and will be back. He makes it look easy, but it's not rush on the network.

"Local utilities the the water company the gas company they're working with people so you want to get on the phone and try to put on pause as many of your obligations as you can that's one side of the equation the other side is to work on the income side I make sure that you get on to the new IRS web portal to be sure that you are set up properly to get that wall and they just announced James they've got a new app out where you can just send them your bank information but just folks make sure it's the IRS app and that you can do you know if you don't want to send your bank information the some fraudulent group but I is it that easy to for fraudulent groups to get their apps through apple and android I don't think so is it yeah I hear about it all the time the problem is with an app in apple's like a website it is once they approve it they're not monitoring what is happening on it because if you have an app you can update that information on there all the time so it very well could be that someone could put through an app that has nothing on it that stand me within a week later they could add some features to it that are ours are based on a scam so what you want to make sure is this is the official website it's Iraq's dot gov forward slash corona virus that is the official okay good last night and we we we have a link to that and also videos showing people how to do this but this is why this is so important George because if you don't use the web portal which just started less than twenty four hours ago this new web portal if you don't use the web portal you might have to wait until September or October to get a check by email from the Iraq that's too late by then people be back to work they need it now right right they need the money now so they need to get this web portal to be sure the IRS has their banking information and all of that so they get this money and and pretty much everybody's getting this money even people that are non filers if you're not required to file a tax return because you don't have enough income to require that you still get the stimulus so this is for everybody to call its helicopter money you're pretty much everybody is going to get this whether you're retired or working or whatever your situation is and it's a lot of money I mean in in the sense that you know this is the first wave of the money we have is going to be at least two two of these and another one coming you know maybe later in the summer but a married couple is going to get twenty four hundred and then you'll get five hundred for each dependent child that's right you've got three or four children you know you're gonna get a nice a few thousand dollars and that gets a cut off is how much you've made to if you made too much you're not going to get it right there's a limit so single is seventy five thousand and then it phases out and then a hundred and fifty thousand for Mary is is where it begins to phase out and and there's also some really good on employment situation so you get unemployment from your state but then the federal government is adding six hundred dollars to that so like in our state in Florida people are getting about eight hundred and seventy five dollars a week for unemployment and they even have included the GT ten ninety nine people one on employment which normally they're considered self employed and they're not eligible for unemployment but under this new stimulus even the ten ninety nine gig person is going to get that eight seventy five a week here in Florida and this would apply to be a different amount in different areas but the ten ninety nine gig worker needs to know that they qualified to get in on this on employment money also and would you recommend James that people do with their creditors like the mortgage companies utilities they're all trying to help you work a deal aren't thank right right so you want to make sure I want one thing I'm hearing that is not good advice people are saying well you don't need to call because this program is already in place my view is if you're not going to make your payments you need to call you need to go on their list they have to know that you're part of mind right you need to call them and make a deal and my suggestion is you try to get that in writing so that down the road it doesn't affect your credit score if they write like let you miss like two or three car payments people are doing this they're they're skipping two or three car payments and they put those payments at the end of the loan you want to get those things in writing you don't want to assume interest not mailing your mortgage and end up you know having all kinds of fees and maybe for closure and and that sort of thing so you want to get on the phone and you want to talk to these people that you owe money to landlords some areas the governors the local mayors are saying the landlord has to work with you that's not always the case but even if that is the case I still think it's good manners it its good relations to get on the phone and smart your landlord and say look here's my situation I need I could pay half way now know I could pay half after get my stimulus we have to all work together you gotta remember that landlord has a cost too and he's got a family to a mortgage to pay too so we've got to work together in communication is really the best thing during this wall in it let's say you get three months to hold back on paying your mortgage which is two thousand a month what you don't want is at the end of that third month to have a six thousand dollar payment due so you want this thing to me want this thing spread out or put on the end or something like that yeah that's what they're doing they're doing these mortgage like modifications they're sort of they're not official mortgage modifications what they're doing that exact thing letting people skip payments and then building that in to the back end of of a lot of these different loan so if you could skip all of your obligations and you can get a little bit of money coming in that could be survival for a few weeks for for a lot of people and I think you've got to work both sides of it the expense side of it as well as the the income side of it and when it comes down to it really if you're in good health and you have some food you can make it and engine brighter days are ahead it's it's it's it's just gonna be a matter of weeks before the this is a let me ask you this do you have to get your opinion on the decision that government is going to need tomorrow night I'm going to have a former New York times writer on who took the position that we shouldn't have shut down the country and and I think he's right but let me ask you this it's what what happened was governors of states started shutting down their states because they didn't want to be left out of the decision making process and get better and and get accused of not doing something or not doing the right thing it was a difficult situation for governors but if they saw that Massachusetts shut down then the governor of Delaware said all I gotta do it too and it just mushroomed and snowballed into where we are today here's the question for you is it inhumane to open up everything within a matter of a week or two and go back to where we were in preserving a livelihood for the eighty five percent who will never come down with the corona virus for whatever reason and get America back to work and then take our chances that whoever gets sick and dies they get sick and die is that in humane or not you know if you if you want the real truth on this I found in an article by bill Bennett is there's an article people can go bill Bennett coronavirus and there's an article which which really lays out the numbers of this once you understand the numbers and you understand the tiny percentage that actually would die from this and again here's the problem we don't have a live ticker tape of all the lives being destroyed because of the shutdown in and that's the tragedy is I know there are so many people that are you know committing suicide having heart attacks died getting divorces there's a domestic violence child abuse lives are being destroyed but there is no life picker tape and count of that going on so we don't know that the toll that it's taking well here's I I've said this for weeks now this needs to be looked at as the regional situation we have a hurricane here in Florida New York doesn't board up he's going to shelter and that's that's a form of payment and when you start breaking this down it looks like this is you know New York New Jersey there's a problem it looks like in New Orleans there's a problem in the Detroit area as a problem in California L. yeah but it but if you if you focus on these these hot spots now and then you let the rest of the country go back you know trumpet said something a couple weeks ago which is sort of disappeared from the news headlines he said we need to look at every county and give every county a rating and that waiting would determine what that county needs to do like enough in my county we have virtually nothing going on but yet our schools are closed all of our businesses are closed all of our beaches are closed it's like a one size fits all approach to the whole country I think it should be managed county by county in each state based on what's going on back to me makes the most sense and I think you could you know kind of split the baby in the Solomon and say we're gonna open up a lot of areas that aren't being hit so hard in these other areas that are the hot spots that's what we're going to focus our resources we had an infectious disease expert on last night who believes that most of the people who are coming down with the corona virus had the flu shot and that it has something to do with that vaccine well George I'll I'll be tonight that I'll tell you I'll make you something here tonight and I'm not allowed to stand social media is I've gotten to warnings from Facebook for saying this that I think I already had corona virus way back in the early in the season in February I got so sick for two weeks I had all the symptoms except I did not have a fever and I was in the middle of a show with the big bands I think you're supposed to get the fever the fever is is is an integral part of that so you might have something else maybe well almost like walking pneumonia but I've had so many people tell me that they had the same thing now I was I've never been that sick before it was over two week period I had every single piece of that corona virus the symptoms except for the fever and and a lot of people are saying I had at a Christmas I had in in January for some reason the narrative now on social media you're not allowed to say that you might have already had a these and I think we're going to find out when they do the antibody testing that a lot of people whether I did or not but a lot of people I think did it have this much early on in the season I think you're right about that and I think the incidence of those who had the infection was much higher than what they had initially said when they first came out and said the mortality rate is two point three percent when the flow is only point one this is horrible I kept saying wait a minute we just don't know the real number of people who have the infection it's it's a lower number than we know it's much higher than that by the thousands and I think you're absolutely right when it comes to that yeah I think that history will look back on this it once we actually do have all the numbers if we ever have all the numbers I think the world really greedy that we went too far with what we did in reacting to it what scares me George more than anything is the idea that a lot of these hardliners from the medical field are saying this is gonna be every year now I don't see how you do that how you did it could shut down everything for two months and you can't you can't do that anymore they didn't do it with a normal slow one now they've they've got a handle this like the seasonal flu and expect that people are going to get sick you know five hundred thousand people die from heart attacks every year thirty two thousand people die in car accidents fifteen thousand people get murdered four hundred and fifty fall under their bed and die every year sixty thousand die from the seasonal flu these of the higher numbers and though we you just can't shut down the country for that in there still something Jim I think a little more sinister and I said.
