How ridiculous. I will be thrilled and overjoyed to admit that I was "wrong" if US deaths do not reach 100k.Originally Posted by Richard Davis
Well not to worry Jim, because IF those numbers of dead don't reach the 240K mark or even the 100K mark, you won't have the intellectual integrity to admit that you were wrong.
That we can all be sure to note!
That is really quite a low number in a population over 300M, and all citizens of the US should all be thankful that we did not have millions dead. I will most likely believe that the social distancing, closures and stay at home orders worked spectacularly, if we only have 100k dead. You will believe that the virus is not all that lethal, and that we overreacted if we have less than 100k dead. You will also believe that the overreaction was politically motivated.
So it goes.
