COVID-19 Killing Kansas Casinos

The plague is scaring away suckers from losing big bucks and bad economic news almost makes us feel sorry for an industry built upon human misery. Whilst compulsive gamblers usually carry these places through harsh times, this report confirms fewer people willing to bet their health in order to give money away.

Meanwhile, there's little refuge for service industry workers. Read more:

190,000 dead in the USA. Its serious to them and their families. Probate courts will be backlogged with cases for years. Many older people who died or got sick will sell their homes and it will drive housing prices down, as the market is about to be flooded with inventory. Many more people will recover and go on SS disability their whole lives. Its a mess. Just like Polio was in the 1950's.

Oh bullshit, there aren't 190,000 dead. More like 5 or 6.

94% of the deaths were in people with comorbidity, the simultaneous presence of two chronic diseases or conditions in a patient. Wear masks in most situations until there's a vaccine, social distance and protect the very elderly. There. Done. Send me Fauci's annual salary. You know, the guy who said early on that the public shouldn't wear masks.

comorbidity does cause the deaths. But without Covid19 there would not be that extra "illness" thats the final straw to kill people. So without Covid many of those already sick people would still be alive now. Yes maybe the flu would get them this winter, but they would be alive now.

More people die from the flu in Kansas most years than have died from COVID this year.

TOP PHOTO -- ROLLING THE DICE

While KS Gov. Kelly and her sidekick Norman overplayed their hand, relegating thousands of Kansans to survive on table scraps, when the truth emerges, they'll be shooting craps from both ends!!!
