These are rarely if ever common or sensical.
please be specific what "These" are?

We most definitely should discuss regulating who can get behind the wheel of a car and how to get rid of drivers who are unsafe. A great idea may be to require driveres to be licensed

And yet, 40K people die every year in the USA from car accidents.
The point being, that as a society we've accepted that the benefits of being able to drive in cars outweigh the cost.

Nobody is disputing that from an economic standpoint society accepts a certain amount of death once they reach a certain economic cost. This is a complicated and lengthy discussion that is fundamental to economic theory in government, and boils down to what is the price of a life. Interestingly, it seems many people who think the lockdown should end and thought it should never start never heard of this or many economic basics until now, and think it’s some type of epiphany.

All that said, comparing this pandemic to driving is hugely erroneous. You can search “car accidents” on this board and you’ll see some of the many reasons.

It was fully addressed. Saying "common sense measures" is what every idiot prefaces their nonsensical proposals with.

so its a binary choice, agree with those that say LOCKDOWN till Kingdom Come or im an IDIOT ?!
mind you, for pointing out the argument that maybe the cost is too high vs the risk which by all available data is actually pretty low.

No I was not referring to your argument. I was saying that every idiot who wants to make an idiotic suggestion about anything in the world will preface it by calling them common sense measures. I think evey single person here with a wide range of opinions thinks that what they are presenting are common sense measures for this situation. Saying to make common sense measures without discussion of what they are can mean anything from doing nothing to welding everyones doors shut.

Bingo!

No one wanted to cmpare them. All I wanna do is shut up the liberals who want to close up the country for the next 5 years and kill our economy for the next 20 years and  don't want to even start discussing reopening. To them I say dump your car.

Obviosly there are a bunch of differeces between covid deaths and car accidents.

Sorry, this is gonna be a personal attack.  >:(

You've brought up the car accident comparison multiple times on DDF, so to say no one wanted to compare them is a bald faced lie. To then further make as if your arguments are about the economy and shutting up liberals is just insulting, especially considering your post asking advice on how to skirt current regulations so you can wander down to Florida for G-d knows what reason. You're about you and you have little respect for others. Don't go bashing half the country to further your agenda. I'm not a liberal, and I want you to stay in NY and this country to be shut down for a little while. Sorry, not sorry.
Huh? Please enlighten me where I compared the 2.

And to your second point. Obviously you don't know me personally but many here do. I have nothing to do with Florida and even if FL would be open I would never go there now. As a travel agent I have customers asking me all those questions so I was just looking for info.

Have a great day!
