Re: America on Fire

Yes, I think the political/economic aspect of this is what caused such a huge breaking out of unrest. It doesn't help when the president taunts and threatens and uses racists dogwhistles rather than being a leader. We are in Boston and it was quiet here and pretty peaceful. Something about all of wh...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

we have been avoiding the big super markets completely by using Jumbo delivery. few kinks in getting them to find our adress in the campo, one broken bottle of wine, but otherwise has been pretty good. Think we got the major kinks worked out now. we might never go back to shopping at the grocery st...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Does anyone have a good resource to point me towards to try to get up to speed on politics in Chile? Spanish sources are fine. I've been trying to read the news more thoroughly, but I miss the importance of a lot of it because I can't place names/parties/etc very well just yet. Sad, after living in ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

There is some nuance you are willfully looking over. Our usual natural rights vs potentially infecting a community with a dangerous and lethal virus, which can take more lives and cause more damage to property and life in other ways as well. You are, under the current conditions, doing harm to the b...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

What do folks think will be a good window of time for remigration to Chile? We have been in Boston the last year. We are hoping to go back to Chile finally in November/December. Possibly a little earlier. I am hoping we can time it for when there's a lull.. even if there isn't, the alternative is wa...

Ugh. I was hopeful that a silver lining of this pandemic might be the end of this nonsense with the protests and violence...

In Florida the nursing home industry is trying to get sovereign immunity of the state extended to private nursing homes, eliminating all liability.

Wow. They will probably get it, too, if I know America.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

743 deaths in Italy, over 69,000 cases. Italy is wrongly classifying deaths as caused by corona virus which are not. It is a way to game the system and get more resources for your hospital. If doctors want to get masks and gloves allocated, they have to do this. Source? https://www.telegraph.co.uk/...

Re: The Day After

I'm not quite sure how some of you folks are capable of the mental gymnastics that reduces this crisis to some sort of overblown hoax, or saying its not even as bad as the seasonal flu. And it isn't just deaths from covid. Its the massive crush of patients on our health care systems, that can't with...
