Deck Chairs on the Titanic: Coronavirus Edition

Recommended Posts

To be serious for a second, I'm one of the few to use that phrase that really does think the orange man really IS bad. Plus I believe in the inner score card.

 

You bring up a good point, though. Trump's supporters are just as abused as his current and former spouses, and girlfriends. I almost added sexual assault victims to that list, but I think it would have been redundant.

 

His supporters deserve our pity to the point at which they are not complicit. With time that line seems to be harder and harder to find, but on the other hand Stockholm syndrome or battered spouse syndrome seems to be a real thing.

 

To flash back to the more childish side, I like where you're going with this thread, maybe we could get all the lefties in here and we can just sling all the childish insults that are typical of Trump supporters. Eventually all the children would join in the playground games, not knowing it was a giant joke on them. It could be the perfect sacrificial anode to try to save some of the other worthwhile part of CoB&F.

Honestly I might just discuss covid news here, since there's no way the clown show is leaving the actual Coronavirus thread.

Why, this is a nice political tread in the politics section.

 

Why do you want to infect it with the coronavirus?

The Titanic was a great ship. The best ship built in America by people with good bloodlines.  Great bloodlines. Maybe it went down. Maybe it didn't. I don't know. I think it didn't. I think it didn't. Because, you know, that's what they say. But you don't know. I think it didn't. Great ship. Great American ship! I think I was on it once, actually.  They were so happy to see me. They had all these beautiful deck chairs. You know, on the deck. And they were so happy, they gave it to me for free. Best ship ever.

"I'll get things started here  . . .

 

Orange man bad."

 

On the 'other thread', when I posted that I was beginning to become prejudiced against Orange people.  I was immediately called a raciest by a certain poster. 

 

That being the case, I humbly apologize to all people of the orange color, except one.

You don't choose your skin color!

 

 

 

Except for one orange dude.

You're saying he's not really orange, but he identifies as orange?

I realized that the answer to my question is likely that he identifies as thin, toned and naturally tanned.

Isn’t Memorial Day the time for a patriotic disaster movie? Now with movie theatre's closed what are we going to watch? Do the WH farce force Meetings count?

 

And I thought America always wins, isn’t that how it works? I am confused - 80K Americans dead and the virus is still alive and well. Powell’s Fed bazooka was great, but the Virus doesn’t care about this either. This just sucks. The story line sucks and drags on too long. I like in Armageddon better. I’d rather have a meteor hit.

You haven't seen the ending yet.

 

 

 

Maybe the asteroid is still coming.

 

 

 

Maybe Trumpie, Biden, Xi and Putin go nuke the asteroid.

 

 

 

Maybe they don't return.

 

 

 

Hey, why was Biden included in that team?

Remember when saving any lives at all from blocking flights from China was THE drum to beat for a Trump fanboy? 

 

 

More than 90 percent of houses of worship have been closed in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, and numerous polls have actually shown that a majority of the American public support the restrictions.

So far this war had two battles, the initial one and the current one.  The initial battle was lost even before day one due to complete incompetence.  It cannot be won back.  The casualties are there to stay and increase as time goes by.

 

The Dems need to accept this tragic reality. It's too late to try and save the day. By hanging on they are making the current battle worse. It can't be really won either.  We need to have everyone wearing masks and reopen.

 

If Trump wins, it means the continuing dismantling of the institutions including the rule of law, possibly to the point of no return.

 

If Trump wins, it means the economy will not get what it needs the most, focus on demand and consumption by households.

 

The Dems need to give up on trying to win a lost battle, so they can win the war.

I agree.

 

America had a coordinated strategy until Trump went rogue to play a dirty political trick and blame the collapse on the Democrats who he is counting on to maintain the restrictions too long.  The Democrats have their hands tied behind their backs by conscience and this is a weakness that Trump does not share with them.

Is this an admission that we'd be safer from the virus in China?

 

US accuses China of blocking US flights, demands action

https://www.malaymail.com/news/world/2020/05/23/us-accuses-china-of-blocking-us-flights-demands-action/1868874

 

Depending on where you are located in the US, you will be safer from the Virus in China as well as in most European countries , except the UK.

In China, I think mortality (and other health issues ) from air and other pollution Sources probably dwarfs the fatality from COVID-19

At the same time that the Trump administration is blaming China for not stopping all flights out of the China at one point, and now flights from the USA is the primary source of infection for some other countries yet the Trump administration is not blocking all flights. Hmmm.

Too funny - Trump is driving you guys crazy. Now with the Obama/Clinton crime syndicate being exposed for the off the charts corruption, it's going

to get a LOT tougher for the Trump-obsessed Democrats.
