Posted in: Biden: Trump ignores pandemic, stokes unrest, solves neither See in context

Could one of you highly intelligent Trump supporters explain to me how dems are failing to respond to the violence when they are sending the police out in force to handle the violence?

The democratic run cities could have ended the violence if they wanted to. Instead they allowed it to continue for months and refused any federal assistance that was offered. Heck - they're only just starting to accept that there is violence perpetrated by anyone other than the police... and that's probably only because the polls are swinging in Trump's favor.

Democrats aren’t sponsoring violence. It’s appalling that these entirely incorrect assertions are allowed to stand.

I love how the left flip flops on the validity of incorrect assertions

Posted in: Biden hits campaign trail; blames Trump for city violence See in context

wait....what? there is no violence and has been no violence over these last months. Dems said so.

Its just people doing that they do, and the "myth" of Antifa.

All the burning, looting, assaulting, its all been "peaceful" protests.

But now because of bad polling for Dems. there suddenly is violence and Trump is responsible for years of it?

So true!

Perhaps, but if they are, I suspect it's in response to public feelings. If we want to be cynical, we would say the media follow the money more than the politics.

I agree that they follow the money. I don't think the media responds to public feelings so much, though. I think the media has a massive influence over public feelings. Fear sells. The whole 'if it bleeds it leads' thing.

It works if you catch it very very early. The lockdown in Victoria isn't as strong as that which New Zealand endured, and they were able to get things under control.

For now. Wait a little bit.

Nobody with even a tenuous grasp on reality could be taken in by these self-serving lies.

Most people aren't. They just realize that the left have gone insane so they have no choice but to vote Trump.

Dead people walking.

You do know that the chances of dying from Covid are actually quite low, right? Even if you catch it.

I don't know. I also don't care. But it's a great way to combine 2 things to create more fear. I suspect we're going to hear a lot more on this subject in the future - climate change alarmists will love it.

Biden will end the chaos

Those on the America hating left, unable to accept their defeat in 2016, have been completely responsible for ALL of the chaos.

Unfortunately, it will continue for another four years because Trump will win in November - bigly - and the left are incapable of self reflection. Those few who are capable normally switch sides ;-)

@michaelqtodd This is a masterclass on how to control an outbreak. Swift, decisive action and a lot of testing and contact tracing then isolating in quarantine camp. Just announced that only 7 new cases in New Zealand today. All seem to be related to original cluster. Should hopefully be back to zero by the end of the week and everything back to normal by end of the month

@JohnSmith Until the next time.

At which point people will be even more fed up than this time around. They still haven't even traced where this cluster came from and you're calling it a masterclass? Rolling lockdowns until a vaccine is found - a masterclass in destroying an economy & eroding trust

Totally! Tulsi and Yang! What a team they'd be! Tulsi surfs too... that should be a prerequisite.

If Biden was going to pick someone who’s worth anything in the Democrat party it should have been Tulsi Gabbard, would have definitely had a better chance, at least the woman is authentic, a woman and a minority as well which Dems seem afraid of, she’s just not “black.”

Tulsi would have been great as their presidential candidate, too. I think she's great.

Posted in: U.S. nears 5 million coronavirus cases See in context

Would that make you feel better if it was added in? Other things are left out, and it doesn't matter. There are 5,000,000 cases. How many do you need? More death percentage? What numbers will make you believe preventative measures are necessary?

It does matter. It's relevant. It would make me feel better if it was added in. I would feel even better if those 'peaceful protests' were described accurately. It was a huge deal because this was allowed and even encouraged while at the same time those 'other things' were criticised. Those 'peaceful protests' also continue. to this day... yet somehow they're exempt from criticism.

Preventative measure are necessary - I agree - but the first line of this article screams double standards.

Posted in: Do you think herd immunity in a country can curb the coronavirus? See in context

Furthermore, as an expert in everything, I thought the purpose of lockdowns was to flatten the curve so that health systems can cope. To think you can lockdown until there is no more virus or we develop a miracle cure is pretty naive, I would have thought. Anyway, surely we'd be in a better position to answer this question in a year or so. I vote 'yes'.

I think it's too soon to tell for sure but isn't Sweden a good example? As @ペルソンペル says, deaths are way down and confirmed cases have dropped a lot since the peak. Since they haven't changed their stance wouldn't this suggest that the herd immunity theory is still a valid theory? I can't see the long term benefits for countries that lock up entirely. You can't stay closed forever.

Posted in: Nobody knows for sure how the Spanish Flu pandemic, which killed millions of people around the world between 1918 and 1920, ended but it did end over a relatively short period of time, without a vaccine. Do you think the coronavirus will end in much the same way? See in context

As an expert on all things, I think that Covid-19 will ease in a similar way but without anywhere near as many deaths. The politicization of Covid-19, however, will keep it from dying out in our minds. Let's face it, it's one heck of a hobgoblin opportunity that our politicians can't waste!
