One employee tests positive and they close it down?
Actually, per their update from last Saturday, it was two. And once they start working backwards from there on tracing movements and contacts, it's not hard for management to throw the towel.

I'd go to a tropical island in the Caribbean. 
This may be good. My first preference would be Belize. I would not have to learn a new language and my American dollar has some value.

Not that anyone hear needs another downer story or reality check .....

A lady who works for me went totally hysterical today. And for good reason.  Her son, his wife and family apparently caught Covid at a BBQ a few weeks back.  He is in bad shape.  Big dude, bordering on obese.

His lungs are filled with fluid,  but he got up and walked out of the hospital today.  Doctors told him he won’t last 24 hours, but he said I didnt want to die in this hospital. 

The mom has diabetes, so she can’t see him.    Uuugghh. 


This thing sucks.
Yep.  It sucks.
My wife teaches reading at a special needs school.  Aspberger's kids or kids with learning disabilities.  There are maybe 150 students from 1-12 there. They've already lost two parents and a step-parent, and one of the teachers is in the hospital with COVID.
That's before school restarting.
My brother in law in Tucson lost a good friend back in February to a respiratory problem nobody could figure out.  They didn't disinter the body to retroactively check, but the doctors think it was COVID.

Here's the rub - saying the U.S. isn't the best isn't bashing it.  That's how far-out you are on this. 

Maybe it's 2nd or 10th or 35th, I don't know.  There are people who measure those things.  But you're not in any way objective here.
I'm not trying to convince you of anything here.
But, logically, if you don't know whether or not it's the 2nd-best, how can be so absolutely positive that it's not the best?
Just trying to figure out how that works.

I probably couldn't somehow rank the top ten countries, it's so dependent on variables and opinions and what seems relevant to me, coupled with my ignorance about many of these places.  I might get there and discover the place is really a dump because you can't get an electrician to show up, or it takes months to get a DL, etc.

In France, it takes months, literally, to sell a house, there are so many steps involved.  Our friend had a signed contract on her place in February and still has not closed.  She had a verbal agreement in October.

We would find that sort of thing frustrating.

I would think you'd need to live in different countries for a year or so to make a decent somewhat informed opinion

Please take the "Best Country" debate to the 2020 thread, I think it has run its course here.

It started on this thread with OAM lamenting that Americans aren't doing the things he thinks need to be done, to combat the spread of the virus.  And that, specifically, is  a fair topic of discussion for this thread.

The rest of it fits in better on the other thread, where we're already discussing ways we might wish to improve our own country.

Thank You For Your Support

Georgia had a one day spike in reported cases yesterday, so the downtrend (or leveling) is suspended, at least for a day.  I think sometimes the reports come in a day later, an hour after midnight or whatever, so one day doesn't mean anything ...

That's why we should expand to 8 teams and auto-bid P5 conference champions.

Well the AIA has announced there will be fall sports in Arizona, Football games will start last week of Sept first week of Oct. 

Good thing, I don't think I could survive a season without officiating football. 

That said, still a long time to get there, I can see them changing their mind, Panic and fear is still in the air.

BREAKING: L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announces he is authorizing the city to shut off water and power to any houses or businesses that are hosting any parties or unauthorized large gatherings. It will begin Friday night, and LAPD will respond, then contact DWP to cut it off
