January, maybe.  We have time to get things under control for that to happen. Do I have confidence that will happen? No.


Agreed.

If everybody in the country began wearing a mask today every single time they are in contact with non-immediate family members, we might have a chance of getting things back under control by early 2021. I don't have confidence that our 'leadership' will require us to go there, or that the American people will go there voluntarily.

There will be no substantial change until at least January. At least.

I  think this is what most of us expected - except for the low IQ fools who think Covid will be gone in 2-3 weeks.

Magically.

Nothing, as long as you're 3 or 4. If you're 30 or 40 or older, then it's a significant problem.

I'm hopeful that the threat of college football being canceled will be enough to motivate the anti-maskers in the South to start wearing masks and taking this seriously, but still realistic enough to know it probably still won't be enough. 
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Buccaneers Donovan Smith says playing during coronavirus pandemic is not worth the risk
https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29441083/buccaneers-donovan-smith-says-playing-coronavirus-pandemic-not-worth-risk

 Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting left tackle Donovan Smith, the man responsible for protecting Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady's blindside, said Friday morning that, "Risking my health, as well as my family's health, does not seem like a risk worth taking" by playing during the coronavirus pandemic.

leave it to Luth Holth to take that stance. The guy against NIL wants to force kids to play during a pandemic for the entertainment of others.

Well said.

I would further explain for those who don't understand the difference between 'public health' and the 'healthcare system': the primary goal of public health is to monitor and hopefully prevent illness in order to help people avoid the need to enter the healthcare system. We did a crappy job of monitoring and preventing this illness from spreading, but our healthcare system is doing a good job treating patients once they get there.

The problem is not Trump, not the "healthcare system", it is the American people.  The American people are not compliant, they/we don't care about the common good.

Our ststem is built around ROI, profits, and Wall Street, therefore, doomed to failure.

My wife and I cant get back to Italy.  Why?  Because of the self centered, greedy, fellow Americans,  mostly southern Americans. 

The rest of the world is laughing at us, we with the great for profit healthcare system.  We are over medicated, over tested, over treated and over billed.   The king has no clothes folks.

With the current state f affairs, there is no way to fill a stadium - even partially - for a sporting event.   This crap is spreading like wildfire because of carelessness and the nature of the beast.  Our scientists have a battle 9n their hands.  And we are no where near a solution.   Prayers up for that.

I agree that the response of the American people has been a huge disappointment and a big part of our failure. But Trump owns part of that because he is constantly showing the 40% who listen him that he doesn't really believe in masks.

No denying this point.  The most ardent supporters of him would own this (I hope, at least).  It is part of the DNA of those who love him. 

Best thing that could happen would be for Obama to ardently support not wearing masks (wink, wink) and have the Trump supporters finally and reflexively support science/intelligence.

Hood wink of the century.

The reason the Libertarians are so quiet is that you can't defend the indefensable.
Libertarianism is great in theory, in reality you die. 
It is for losers who are contrarians.

Rube here.
Simple question, why does Wall Street run my local hospital?
Simple answer, profit.

Why does Italy have national healthcare.
Because healthcare is a human value, it is the moral ethical thing to do.  As a young doctor from Belgium said to me, it's fair.

Why did corporate America, AKA Wall Street, switch to 401(k) retirement plans?
To transfer risk and create a business opportunity for Wall Street.

There must be a lot of Rubes in Italy/Europe.

BTW, I am invested in stocks and have a very nice retirement thanks in part to Pres. Ronald Reagan.

As we say, the bulls make money, the bears make money, the hogs make none.

Anyone notice that Purdue and Michigan State took down their football schedules in the past 24 hours?  Not seeing any other B1G teams that have done that.

Current schedules showed 9 conference games. The goal now is 10.  So it’s more than likely that schedules will be adjusted beyond simply pulling off the non conf.

The goal is 10 but dates and opponents are going to be revisited. Shorter trips prioritized.

Some interesting rumblings from people I’ve talked to from within the Big Ten:
-possible home and home meetings
-at least three schools talking about not playing (Rutgers won’t be missed)
-schedules adjusted later in the season based on standings or risk levels.
