most folks shouldn't watch the president's press conference

I just don't see it that young folks have it tougher these days than prior generations

but, I'm a boomer and that's how boomers think

I also don't think this belongs on the virus thread
Ehh, I like it better than most of the virus talk, TBH. 

I don't know that young people have it tougher (I don't even know what cohort is "young" any more). They certianly have certain nicer things. They seem to have less access to certain other, more basic things. Some of that is tied into the decline of blue collar work, the slip of private sector unions, a few other factors. In any case, it seems there's less stability, but perhaps that's just perspective looking back. By the same token, some parts of society have it a lot better, and their experience can't be minimized. 

I suppose it's all relative. People who were older now were the first generation to not understand how credit card debt worked. They were in positions of more responsibility when our national savings rate hovered around zero in 2008 before the crash. 

Let me put it another way. I think, on average, generations aren't all that different. There are some smart folks, some stupid ones, some very responsible and some very irresponsible. The boomers are not inherently special, nor is the current generation. But, our attention focuses on different groups when it suits different needs, namely the desire to feel some degree of aggrieved. Younger people look back at some of the entitlement of boomers (what happened to pensions?), without acknowledgment of how much of that position was built. Older people look down on some of the frivolities, setting aside the fact it's not like young dummies invented frivolities and many young people are thrifty and all that kinds of stuff. Everyone casts themselves as hero of victim in their own way. 

Chances are, no one is that special. Their situations are different. The struggles and satisfactions are to a degree overblown. I hope some of the challenges my cohort felt can translate into frugality down the line and the world will just keep on spinning.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Boomers are not the ones spreading this virus. It's the "all about me" kids.

if you're watching just to praise anything that the pres says, or to hate everything he says or the way he acts
there's no reason to watch
we all know who he is....... or we should by now

most watch merely to justify their own opinions - a very foolish waste of time
and if you're a hater that is just watching to raise your blood pressure - it's more dangerous than just foolish

Boomers have sort of suffocated things for everyone else, financially.  They hold all the wealth and have made methods of younger generations acquiring it radically more expensive.  It's messed up.


Yes, We all got together to make sure this happened :72:


BTW I am joking not trying to be snarky

I felt the same way about the President before this one

anyway if your goal is to not watch him CNN will help you out on this

right now this country has a big problem so until we solve it I intend to watch anything which will give me news on the latest developments

The Boomers like me got together in 1967 and started the Egg Lobby with the intent of nefariously getting ours and keeping our kids from having any.

the egg lobby is a weak attempt vs the young people of today

back in my day, eggs were for breakfast

now days, young folks eat all sorts of other proteins early in the day - some of them don't even contain meat!

The Egg Lobby was never about eggs, that's the beauty of it.

I think the use of zoom will be one of the things that will carry over from these days

I never could figure out why folks would travel from place a to place b to have a business meeting when most of what you want to do can be done using zoom

back in my working days my boss and I would travel to NY City about once every 4 months just to have a hour long financial meeting with investors.  This trip cost our company over $2,000 every time we went.  Today we could just jump on zoom and be done with it
In sales, relationships matter. It's easy to conduct business over a Zoom; it's hard to develop relationships. 

I don't think there's truly a substitute for F2F meetings as a whole. I think that things like Zoom might reduce the overall need to have F2F meetings, but won't eliminate it entirely.

if youre making a presentation or if its sales client related I agree but not for normal planing sessions

In addition to saving money its much more efficient

Instead of a company officer spending 4 days on the road he/she only spends an hour on a zoom meeting and goes on to other company matters

as far as contacts are concerned stop all the texting and pick up the damn phone if youre in high school thats fine but if youre in the business world the phone is better

no, but Boomers are dying

just had a conversation with a co-worker.  her mother is in her late 80's and has COPD.  Obviously high risk.  Mom refuses to stay home.  Isn't good about washing hands after being in stores.  Does wear a mask, but isn't good about proper procedures
I imagine mom would allow young people into her home.

Mom isn't protecting herself from the spread from young people!  SMH!

From July 7th, so deaths should dropping fast in Texas...........

Dr. Richard Bartlett, a Dallas MD who previously advised Governor Rick Perry for 7 years has a lifesaving COVID breakthrough, that Taiwan, Japan, Singapore and Iceland are also using. The breakthrough is an inexpensive generic drug used to help asthmatics for more than 20 years, but the US and most of the world’s governments are using the WHO’s blind acceptance of the failed China strategy.

The deaths in every state, and every country could almost stop overnight if health professionals changed course immediately. For some reason, the NIH and CDC want to act as slow as molasses, but a small number of doctors are already doing this with their patients and they are seeing immediate success.

Will it work for every single patient? That remains to be seen, but many people who have used this protocol saw immediate results. This is the same path taken by Taiwan (24 million people, 7 deaths), Japan (126 million, 977 deaths), Singapore (5.6 million, 26 deaths) Iceland (341,000 population, 10 deaths).
