... 'We've Done Worse Than Most any Other Country' ...

It shouldn't be a surprise that the United States has done worse.

For starters, we were being attacked by an enemy, and fmr Pres Trump gave aid to that enemy, helping it in its attacks upon Americans.

NY Times article headline "To develop vaccines, the world needs monkeys. And they're in short supply"

I propose we send them trump supporters, in hopes that they too become "in short supply".

If you had one, you could stay on this thread and defend that statement. But you dont so you'll just post it and run away.

Entertaining to see what jumps up off of the floor. I see you jump upon the slightest of suggestion.

Yes you're such a powerful puppetmaster, using your skills to troll people on an obscure website. I'm sure the ladies are lining up just to be with you.

A suggestion? You suggest that if fauci had a brain he play with it?

That's pretty weird "suggestion". He obviously has a brain. And he has even probably played with it! It's his brain. And it got him a lot further in life than you. Obviously.

I have suggestion.

I suggest you take a long walk off a short pier.

Now that's a suggestion. A really good one, too!

because Americans can't be bothered to shut down...
don't know HOW many peoples and businesses I've seen
flaunting the rules here in WV. Nobody cares until
someone they know dies.

the next pandemic, will thin out the herd for sure...

we are SO lucky this wasn't MERS... You should read
up on it a bit, it killed like 20-25% of the people
who contracted it... that might wake some people up.

If the Coronavirus killed more than 5% of people infected and it killed primarily people in their Prime we would have taken the pandemic seriously.

Who's WE?

Trump didn't lie about covid because it had a lower death rate, he lied because it endangered his presidency. He'd have lied about it no matter what the death rate was, and his cult would have believed him. There are people dying of covid who say covid isn't real because right wing media has brainwashed them so badly.

Once trump poisoned their minds about covid, there's nothing that could be done to make them take it seriously.

I disagree.

If it had acted like 1918 influenza and killed children and young adults in a disproportionate manner it would have gotten people's attention.

Righties wrote off old people easily because they're no longer as useful as low paid workers.

That tends to happen when the head of the country isn't taking it seriously.

If only Hillary had been POTUS and worn a mask....those folks would have fallen right in line and obeyed her.

Eberly makes a valid and sarcastic af point.

However. With Hillary in office, it would have been heavily messaged that Deplorables are the ones not wearing masks.

Which would have made little difference, but not zero difference.

How many lives do you think would have been saved if hillary had been president instead of trump during covid?

None right? Since BOTH SIDES are just as bad as each other?

If Hillary had been president The cdc's Playbook on how to handle an Airborne pandemic coming out of Asia would not have been ignored.

if you're going to answer for me then I don't need to I guess.

#24 | Posted by eberly at 2021-02-24 05:47 PM | Reply

I think it's fair to assume that if Hillary had been sworn in our death rate would be similar to that of Canada.

I just want to hear you say the death toll would have been the same, since both sides are the same right?

Do you agree?
