Trump warned of this. It’s killing more people than Covid. 
 

Who knows how many lives have been saved by the SEC and other conference who decided to play on along with pro sports. Liberals have a hard time understanding the real struggles that many Americans have.

Yes this is tragic. But there is more to this than the SEC playing fb.

It has Everything to do with their Culture and nothing to do with ours.

Japan has long had an issue with suicides and they have had less issues with Covid than us.  They also have not had full lock-downs.  While mental health in Covid is indeed an issue, your statement about suicides being more deadly than Covid is not accurate.   
 

perhaps this statue in Lebanon made from broken pieces of the bomb blast is a symbol for the world in a truly awful year.....

Suicide data, at least nationally, seems to have a fair time lag.  In Idaho, a high rate state, reports through August were stable (just over 2019 pace, but behind 2018)  But, I am fearing more for the young as this thing drags on into the dark months.  There are many localized reports (across the nation) of a rise in youth and young adult suicide.  A definite concern.

The story is about Japan, where COVID-19 deaths are extremely low. In the United States, excess mortality is around 300,000. The latest US suicide figures don't show a substantial rise. Even if the preliminary data is off, Suicide is NOT killing more Americans than COVID-19. Not even close.

Most states are not in strict lockdowns. When a suicide does occur, is it really fair to attribute it to COVID-19 restrictions?

Why doesn't the blame also go on Congress for not passing more (and better) stimulus bills?

How many lives would've improved if Congress listened to the experts at the Federal Reserve and passed additional stimulus?

"The first time, she was just 22 years old with a full-time job in publishing that didn't pay enough to cover her rent and grocery bills in Tokyo. "I was really poor," said Kobayashi, who spent three days unconscious in hospital after the incident."

people not being able to keep up with the cost of living

obscene wealth concentration 

stagnant wages

not "oh life sucks i need to leave my house but i can't because the liberals say no because of the pandemic"

stop bailing out banks, airlines, investment firms, and companies and start bailing out people.

Suicide now being used as a justification for "teams and shit." Completely disgusting. The lengths people will go to in order to prove superiority of a political party over another has reached a level that is getting animalistic. 

Trump warned us and librulz are killing us. I really hope this isn't real.
