He should've been captain. Neink posts too much infowars spam to try and back up his posts, michaelthomas has much better "liberalism will be the death of America, -Ronald Reagan / Michael Scott / Barack Obama" type one liners

I'm glad other people get this - I don't feel that old anymore.

Ugh, I wish Biden would hurry up and take office so he can censure the shit out of free speech for people like you. Taking your guns is just the bonus. After that we slowly demoralize America. Game plan starts with renaming statues and high schools, next logical step is eradicating religion and state ownership of financial institutions. Once we own the banks, Biden pulls off his mask and reveals he is a deep state Communist Party plant from China. We enact communism on our own people and you all cannot vent discontent because Big Tech has been on board since the 90s. Why are we doing this? I don't know, I guess some people just want to see the world burn...

most if not all of 2021. take whatever prediction you have and multiply it by 1.5x because our government is so god damn incompetent

Nah. It's mostly how the public health organizations are structured coupled with bad leadership (on Trump's end).

Thing is, if the US knew what it was doing then CDC would have done its job despite Trump.

That's the problem. The structural efficiency of the US Federal government is so shitty that you need an extremely capable person in charge for anything to run smoothly.

The US isn't a dictatorship. Trump is partially responsible but there were so many different parts of governments who blew this. At the state level with morons like Gavin Newsom and Cuomo, the CDC constantly sending out mixed information ("don't wear masks! no, actually wear masks!" "sunlight kills it! oh wait no it doesnt!"). On top of this you have a terrible vaccine distribution (this is governors fault, god Cuomo is incompetent). How about instead of just blaming everything on Trump because OrAnGe MaN MeAn, you have a nuanced view on what's actually going on.

You all do realize that ~4,000 people are dying per day while most people are staying home, social distancing, and wearing masks? Our hospitals are basically at capacity with all of these precautions. Imagine the damage if we let everyone live as though nothing was happening

Hospitals are built to be at capacity

To be fair: there are places that are completely open and others that are completely locked down within the country. It's not an imagination exercise, we see what's happening. The unfortunate truth seems to be that there hasn't been a lot of correlation between policy and case count, deaths, etc.

If we're still doing this in Q4 with no end in sight, I'm quitting the corporate world and becoming a farmer

Better? Likely by the Spring we should at least see some light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines should be more widely distributed, hopefully J&J approved by then (supposedly the best one) and winter over. If you're asking when it will be completely behind us, I would probably say not until Q4 the earliest but if I had to guess, probably into 2022. 
 

We are never getting to zero cases anytime soon. I don't know what the magic  "active case" number is to green light everything but I would say consistently being at a low number should be OK.

The virus itself will live forever. The virus behind the bubonic plague is still alive and well it's just that we eventually figured out how to treat it. As to when the lockdowns will end, I think that will be the start of 2023. I think that the vaccines we have will be proven to be worthless during winter 2022 due to how much the virus has mutated. There have been winters in which the flu vaccine was 15% effective, flu is a far less insidious virus that we have been studying for hundreds of years, why on earth do people think we can figure corona out on a dime? I think the lockdowns will end in 2023 because society, a bunch of jobless alcoholics by this point, will decide that they'd rather take their chances than stay locked down for another winter. I think by 2025 the death rates in cold climate areas will be unsustainable and this will usher in an era of government sponsored mass-migration to warmer climates. The 'acute' phase of the virus' effect on society will be over by 2028. We will finally have time to survey the damage and assign blame. This will lead to nuclear warfare and our species will hopefully be extinct by 2030.
