tribanon 4 years ago on ‘AMBUSHED’: Police shoot three dead in car after they ‘fired at officer’

You're awfully quick to draw conclusions without knowing all the facts. Why don't you join the police force and find out for yourself what it's like to put your life on the line everytime you go to work? Or are you just another anarchist looking to use racism as the platform for the anarchy you see seem to desire?

tribanon 4 years ago on ‘AMBUSHED’: Police shoot three dead in car after they ‘fired at officer’

The lack of police car cameras and police body cameras is not the problem. The real problem is the large number of hard core criminals in our society that we all know exists. I certainly wouldn't want to be a lowly paid policeman in our country today. Would you?

We know the PLP love anarchy and chaos as it greatly distracts the public from all the tiefin they like to do behind the people's back. Has the FNM taken yet another page out of the PLP's playbook?

joeblow 3 years, 12 months ago on STATESIDE: Love him or loathe him, Trump’s far from beaten and could easily win a second term

The simple reality is that Trump has many issues, but dementia is not one of them. Trump has accomplished more for the average American voter by reducing unemployment, increasing black home ownership, strengthening the military and signing massive trade deals that will benefit the USA. He did more for the economy in three years, than Biden did in 40. Once unemployment number come down and they head into the debates, Biden will lose easily!

John 3 years, 8 months ago on THOUSANDS MAY HAVE CAUGHT VIRUS: Leading medical centres estimate infection rate is much higher than stated

Estimate. estimates, suggests, concludes.

The research groups have been influential to how policymakers have responded to the pandemic around the world. Their models consider confirmed cases, confirmed deaths and testing rates and they reflect a range of assumptions and epidemiological knowledge of researchers.s, estimate, suggests

While the number of cases may be questionable and estimated and inconclusive and uncertain, the number of deaths is certain and so are the number of hospitalizations. Hospitalizations are decreasing, and while there is a surge in deaths after the second lockdown and reopening, these are expected to taper off. But yes, there will be fatalities.

A local physician touts that the current way the country is dealing with the pandemic is much more appropriate and will eventually yield better results than the hard and complete lockdowns that attempt to shelter the population completely from the virus. But once the lockdown is ended, the virus may have mutated several times and the population is now more vulnerable to the disease. And he claims a pandemic is not just a medical crisis but also a social concern. Lockdowns create their own problems, causing inconvenience, stopping economic activity, creating national, business, and personal debt, creating loneliness and panic, and even suicide.

This Dr. suggests that a population should have limited exposure to the virus by exercising social distancing, wearing masks, regular handwashing, some curfews, and the suspension of some high-risk businesses and activities. Basically, those that draw large crowds and require close personal interaction. In addition to the health and safety measures, this Dr. also suggests strengthening of the immune system with supplements of vitamin D and Zinc. Local Bahamians still have limited access to beaches and it has been documented that direct sunlight helps in ridding the body of the coronavirus.

So. yes more persons will test positive for the virus, but at the same timeless people will become severely ill and require hospitalization. The limited exposure to the virus will allow most people to develop immunity to the virus. Individual immunity at this stage and not heard immunity at this stage. But as more people become exposed/infected with the virus the effects of herd immunity kicks in and the virus will eventually disappear because there are no 'new' bodies to infect.

Hard to believe anyone is paying any attention to these lunatics at the Imperial College and their whack-job computer models. Maybe 666 had the covid ? Maybe 210 had it ? Just give me $2 mill. and I will make sure you get to be first in line to get the cure

Flattening the curve is just stupid. It makes the outbreak last longer. When people become ill they say they caught it at work. They will not say they caught it at the strip club.

Looks like Minnis is listening to Biden who wants to shut down the economy. The financial devastation of these shutdowns will be felt for many years to come.

benniesun 3 years, 7 months ago on ‘Shut us down to ensure safety’

"Will you walk into my parlour?" said a spider to a fly; " 'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy. The way into my parlour is up a winding stair, And I have many pretty things to shew when you are there."

.....He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den, Within his little parlour—but she ne'er came out again!

Just substitute lockdown for parlour and 'the govmin dem' for the spider and we are good to go. Lockdowns are worldwide and they are getting more restrictive. There are no plans to end the lockdowns ie they will be endless. Strangely, boosting immune systems and herd immunity seem unfashionable these days.
