  • It's not even a cold to me, I've never had it even though my entire office was sick in 2020 and 2021. Doctors said I was just one of the 1 and 4 that are completely immune to it. We did catch MERS coronavirus back in 2011 and that might be why.

  • Based on the CDC published final 2022 estimates, Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. adults and older teens had still not caught COVID-19 by the end of last year, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while 77.5% had antibodies from at least one prior infection.

    Those who have gotten it seem to get it again and again.

  • There are still many who are deathly afraid to get covid. If your vaccinated and practice standard basic hygiene your risk is very low.

    Wash your hands and don't touch your face. Simple things to avoid it.

  • No, Covid can be a serious issue and was a serious issue three years ago, it just isn't the threat it once was. I'm not saying that a small portion of the population isn't at risk, I'm saying that for the majority of people, it isn't a threat.

  • Colds are a variety of viruses. There isn't a cold virus itself.

    As for Covid, like the Flu or RSV there are those who are in danger of serious illness, the percentage is just low. It's not anything to worry about.

    The risk of developing dangerous symptoms of COVID-19 may be increased in people who are older. The risk may also be increased in people of any age who have other serious health problems — such as heart or lung conditions, weakened immune systems, obesity, or diabetes. This is similar to what is seen with other respiratory illnesses, such as the flu (influenza).

    Each of these factors can increase the risk of severe COVID-19 symptoms. But people who have several of these other health problems are at even higher risk.

  • Covid has been added to the many viruses that we call a cold. It's not the deadly virus it once was and is harmless to the majority of the human population.

    If you have immune issues you should wear as mask as a precaution.

  • Lincoln would be rolling in his grave to see the modern GOP
  • The Republican Party shifted from left to right in the 1960s. There isn't growth on the right, there is encredible growth on the left. MAGA and Progressives already have a lot in common on policy ideas, a hate for government, that shift isn't that hard to do.

  • Lincoln would be rolling in his grave to see the modern GOP
  • Political parties are not static. When Trump falls the Republican brand dies. They will reinvent themselves as a left wing party to regain the power they lost. It won't look anything like it does now by 2030.

    Lincoln would be rolling in his grave to see the modern GOP
  • Lincoln would be a Democrat as would Theodore Roosevelt. Both were Progressives in their time.

    The future of the Republican Party is either a huge shift to the left, like all the way to the left or to disappear and be replaced by another Progressive Party. Democrats would stay where they are and be the Center Right Party.
