    So not sure of your point here. I was just letting you know I am a serious person so FOX told me not to take Tucker seriously, so I can't watch.

    missed that part...just poured first cup of coffee.
    Fox has completely deep sixed since Paul Ryan become a member of the executive board. Predictably.

    Tucker, Pirro, and Mark Levin are the only things worth watching on the network anymore.

    Our county is ridiculous and cannot follow same rules for everyone. Granted, I do work in the EMS field - but we are small.

    Seven of my employees (only have 39) have tested positive. Noone is told to quarantine unless we show signs/symptoms. Each employee can return to work on day 11 after symptoms appear or after a positive test.

    Everyone else is told to quarantine for 14 days - or don't come back for 14 days, etc. Nope - not us.

    So yesterday heart skipped a beat, grandson got sent home from daycare. I found out when I was driving down the driveway at the farm passed the son in law and he told me they were headed to get him tested. I was happy and excited to cut up a deer instead it was filled with dread. He took the rapid test and was negative thank god.

    Just heard that Morris(Illinois) Hospital is at full capacity. They had to cancel some procedures that would have needed overnight stays due to lack of beds.

    I've heard that some areas have so many new cases that they've just given up trying to get everyone tested that asks for one. They simply can't keep up.
    When I had it I was told to isolate for 10 days from when the symptoms first appeared. After that 10 days, AND as long as I didn't still have symptoms, I was fine to end isolation. If you still have symptoms after 10 days, then you shouldn't go out into the public until 24 hours after symptoms have gone away "without the help of medicine".

    Wow! It's no wonder this virus is where it is. Every single doctor (many) I've heard discuss this virus says the exact opposite. Maybe you know something they don't?

    Funny the song reminded me of the hot crazy girlfriend I had when the song was playing on the radio. Good thing that was a catch and release she has been married 3 times.

    It is like being an 18 year old when the aids virus came out, people afraid to have sex with strangers.

    It is my own believe but I think the new "Pause" is going to kill a lot of people under the age of 50 in MN. As an under 35, knowing the risk of covid to my age group. I would have willingly and knowingly got the virus over the fall to be able to coach youth hockey or basketball or whatever if it were able to prevent a suicide of a youth that we know is going to happen in the next 4 weeks.

    Is this really for the greater good at this point?

    Am I wrong to look at this whole crises and panic and think this is evolution people, Darwin talked about it but society has tried to eliminate evolution, survival of the fittest. That being said a 97% recovery rate seems ok until there is a possibility that your grandson gets covid.

    Wait you would willingly get covid so you could deal with hockey parents as a coach? I coached football and basketball and was president of youth football association, at times it sucked and it sucked for my wife that worked in the school that had nothing to do with youth football but at least I could say I do not have to deal with the BS a hockey coach in Minnesota has to deal with. Hats off to you Hotrod

    Disclaimer, I sharpen hockey skates out of my garage. I really don't make a profit but I do it so kids can have confidence that they will be able to skate versus them taking them to the big box store and killing their blades

    I also I'm not kidding about the kids committing suicide in the next 4 weeks. My neighbor's son committed suicide in the house across the street from me 3 years ago. I was home the whole time, if I could do anything to give these kids an ounce of normalcy in the next 4 weeks to prevent one more from happening, knowing the risk I'd wade through the covid ward at the local hospital to be on the ice or on the court or play a game of cards in a couple weeks with them and not have to see families and communities go through that. I'll skip thanksgiving, wont see my parents, grandparents, I wont carol at the nursing home.

    We have reached lunacy!

    I get people are scared of the virus, to a small extent I am too, not for myself or kids but for the elderly. I am more scared of the impact this will have on our children. In Minnesota the next 4 weeks is going to be big and it's not going to be good!
