news forum / Re: Trump the GOP and Democrats. A new path or more of the same.
« Last post by Old Rabbit on March 30, 2020, 12:58:42 pm »

218 days yet to go. The hospital ship Comfort  arrived in New York. This ship will
handle a lot of non corona virus emergencies in the city. This is fine, but the  cities
hospitals need tens of thousands of ventilators , and other supplies. So what is
Trump doing? Worrying about the costs of these supplies, making accusations
that people are asking for a lot more than they need. Not just in New York,
but around the country. As if he is an expert about medical needs.

If there are suspicions of theft or hording, Trump should have the Justice department
look into it. Making it public just harms the credibility of hospitals unnecessarily. But
Trump wants to look like he is on top of it. No matter who or what it hurts. At this
time our hospitals  and other medical services need all the credibility they can get.

Though Trump extended the recovery date to April 30, He is claiming the peak will be on
Easter. This might be true for certain areas of the country, but the virus is moving around
the nation, and will be months  before we see a overall reduction.

Using lies and misleading statements, Trump is dancing around trying to take credit for
anything that might help his credibility. If Trump had not tried to  hide the fact that the
corona virus would be a pandemic. and pushed to really control it. He would likely have
guaranteed his re election. But no, Trumps paranoia and ego caused him to do the
opposite, and will likely cost his re election instead.

The longer this virus holds the world and this country hostage, the more damage to the
economy, and will likely push the world into a economic depression. So it's time Trump
gets out of the way, and let the experts do their job, because all he accomplishes is to
slow everything down with his economic worries.

Trump just can't stand it. He just has to brag on himself,
even if he has to  lie about it. He complains if a news
reporter ask a question he doesn't want to answer. Especially
if the question is about a lie, or a mistake he made.

There have been over 140,000 infections, and over 2,400 
deaths here in the United states . Also over 2,000  recorded
recoveries.

World wide over 750,000 have been infected, and over 30,000 deaths.

219 days till Trumps day of reckoning. It seems he is starting to worry because
he is complaining about an advertisement telling people the truth about how
he has responded to the corona virus. Even threatening to sue TV stations
that air it, and if that doesn't work he threatens to have their license
removed. I doubt if he could legally do this, but Trump would likely
try anyway, hoping to scare off station owners from airing the
offending ad.

As is he moved his press conferences to prime time, which steals   valuable
advertisement time from stations across the country. He is doing this because
he can't have his rally's any more. Some stations are moving their coverage
to secondary channels,but it still hurts the stations revenue. Something
Trump cares nothing about. 

Trumps comments do little to give the conference any value to the public. since
Trump mostly lies and brags about himself, and how much good he is doing
for the country. He doesn't care about deaths or health care workers. He may
make a good talk, but there isn't anything from his heart. Because he only
worries about himself, and his re election. He apparently doesn't understand
being president is for all the people, not just those who brag about him.

The governor of New York gives news conferences any president could be proud
of. Perhaps this is why Trump doesn't like him. Instead of learning from this man,
he considers himself smarter by running the governor down.

Trump has a belief that to win you have to fight back. This is why he bad mouths
anyone who makes him look bad. This may work in cut throat business deals, but
not in government, and especially not as president. Some may think he will learn,
but as in the old saying  Old Dogs can't learn. Trump never will. He might be rich
but he is a mental midget, and only has wealth because he inherited  it. 

Unfortunately Trump benefits from people wanting to support the president during
national emergency's. He has done nothing to earn it. Just as he has done little or
nothing to build the economy, which was growing when he became president.

Some may claim there are enough hospital bed, and ventilators, but what about next
week? The biggest problem we  have with the virus , is Trump and his GOP friends
want to wait and see what is needed. Not to prepare for it. Because that might be
an unnecessary expense. This business way of responding to a health crisis is only
 going  to make it worse. 

The speaker of the house said it. Trumps actions are deadly. Because he just fiddles
around trying to make his self look good.

 in the united states.The last I heard122,000  were infected and over 2,200. have died.

world wide the infected number is almost 700,000 , and over 30,000 deaths.
 and 141,000 have recovered. Depending on the age group the death rate is
around 2%.

Shadow Raccoon in the UK posted a few videos with regard to his shopping experiences at Wish. His results were somewhat mixed. A source for costume and hobby items for me. How about yourselves?

I enjoy the quieting effect that rain has on the neighborhood. No one wants to go scooting about the public streets on their loud motorized toys and get soaked. Plus it's harder to watch out for LE with rain in your face.

220 days left and the right wing is ready to sacrifice older  Americans for the
good of the economy. Not counting the moral aspects of this. Opening up the
economy will just kill more people, and really wreck the economy in the end.

Sending people back to work could cause  the Corona virus to continues spreading
across the nation this summer and into  the fall. If so, Trump and the far right will
have  to deal with a depression that could last for several years.

I doubt even the cult of Trump could survive that. The depression of the 1930's
came close to destroying the Republican party, and another one could finish the
job. I really doubt if Trump even cares. Because he will sit back in his gold plated
tower while people starve, grow sick and die. 

Trump's lack of morality stood out strong when he said he wouldn't help governors
who didn't give him praise.  This isn't new for Trump, he expects praise for everything
he does. and wants to punish those who call him out for his bad actions.

The relief bill that was passed does help a lot of people, and will likely make a lot of
rich people even richer. Trump told one foreign corporation to register here and they
would be eligible for bail out money. Is that Trump trying to make American Great
again? Though it may help some workers here, those corporations pay little or no
taxes here. I find it hard to believe these rich corporations are all that hard up.
Especially when they pay their executives millions.

The democrats will try to push another bill through  to help the poor and disadvantaged,
but I  am sure the GOP will stall, and cry for weeks, now that they don't need the
Democrats to help get money for their rich supporters. Moscow Mitch has already
made claims that the Democrats are just wanting to pass social programs during this
crisis.  Something the GOP hasn't any problem with it the program is to help the rich.
They continue to claim  trickle down economics is the best way to help workers.

It's been proven wrong time and time again, because human greed gets in the way. It's been
shown the richer people are the more greedy they are, no matter what the GOP wants to claim.

The number of people infected in the United States is over 102,000, and the death toll
 is over 1,600. With no signs of slowing.

the polling booth / Re: Are you worried about the Coronavirus?
« Last post by Jade Sinapu on March 27, 2020, 09:44:49 pm »
I have been watching the statistics of this virus.   It does alarm me a bit. 

Doing my best to actively avoid it.  My job requires me to keep working and traveling.  So that is a bummer.   Got food so should be ok for a bit like maybe a month if i ration it out.

The virus seems so random as to who gets it and how bad.  Even the symptoms one gets seems to be varied.  Loss of smell,  headache,  fever or not,  chills or not,  gi upset or not... very hard to pinpoint textbook symptoms.  Essentially testing is only proof you have it.  Some are asymptomatic, others fall ill in 2 to 3 days.
Because of its Trump like unpredictability,  the virus has me worried because I naturally want to understand things to a certain level.

I hear people coughing a wet labored cough at work and I feel like I'm doomed and I want to burst out yelling,  "hey dumb butt go home,  you may kill my parents! And I don't want to be the one to bring death to them!"
I think I will be fine.  Maybe.  But my parents.... not so sure.

From what I can see in the data, America is on part with Italy in terms of learning to control this virus and or lack of responsiveness.  We are not doing what's right.   People here are still driving to places as they feel.

I have papers that I carry with me to prove I need to travel.  Else I don't travel.

I'm doing my part,  but what the heck is going on in New York?? Is that just the populatuon density in the cities causing most of the problem? Is it the fact that they all use mass transit? Idk. I don't really know.  I've never been there.

221 days left. The house is set to vote on the two trillion dollar relief
bill. Seems a GOP congressman is threatening to ask for a roll call
vote. This won't keep the bill from passing. It's just a man up to no
good. Even Trump called him out for making the party look bad.

It appears the corona virus is hitting New Orleans hard, and is likely
to be the next hot spot after New York. Apparently this is the result of
the Marti  grass celebration. Where over a million people attended in
February. Those in power claimed, no one told them they shouldn't
have it. This a very poor excuse as it was already known the corona
virus could spread in large crowds. It was likely decided it would
cost the local economy to much to not have it.  As usual the Business
community overrides  health concerns.   

Trump still won't use the law to force big companies  to manufacture 
Medical  supplies and equipment.  He and the GOP want to  open
up businesses and  relax restrictions allowing the public to
get out, and move about communities. This is due to  big
business concerns, because they don't care how  many
sick people die.  They just want the economy up and running
again.

I saw a poll the other day that showed favor for Trump, even to
show favor for his handling of this corona virus. It amazes me to
see how little people check for facts, and just want to believe the
most corrupt man who ever served as president. After all it was Trump
who called this virus a hoax in early February. I suppose these people
still think it's a hoax. Even with a half million people infected around
the world. This disease Trump wanted to call a bad cold will likely kill
tens of millions before it's done. 

There is talk of investigations after this crisis has past, but I can
guarantee little will be done if the GOP have anything to do wit
it. Because it's the GOP in control, and to  hear them and Trump
everything is going just fine. And when the economy is going again
they will be happy, and the deaths will be irrelevant.

In spite of claims by Trump and the VP supplies and equipment  are
in short supply. Also limited testing for the virus. These problems
put many more people at risk. Especially doctored and nurses.   Just
remember than if you think the GOP and Trump  cares about you. because
they don't.

World wide the number of people infected is nearly 550,000 , and deaths 
are nearly 25,000.

The numbers for the United States is over 85,000 infected, and over
1,250 deaths.
