And in a way it makes kinda sense when you read it. There is always gonna be some element of tyranny in a society. But you just needed to take a look at the real life horror show that's going on in their countries, and you know what's what. They'd do this on all sorts of things, turning it on the head. So this is just their same turn around on the vengeance thing "No you are the vindictive ones". Same old game will always stay the same with them.
The Marxist left are experts at projection. Considering Rules for Radicals is their entire playbook this shouldn't shock anyone.

But the other funny thing in those times was, when the commies would reply their usual "No, you are the real tyranny", the liberals in our countries, even if they didn't exactly hate the West, they'd say "I guess you are right, we are all just tyrannies, one like the other, what difference does it make? Let's be friends". Which the Stalinists and Maoist were pretty happy about. You know when the US was forced to pull out of Vietnam, because Americans are the bad guys, the communist Vietcong was also pretty happy about the situation, and continued the genocide on their people like no other. So was all good. Best friends forever.

Anyway, the reason I mention this is, right now it seems the possibilities for the left are endless, they are kinda getting euphoric. In many countries, it seems there is little they can't push for anymore, regardless if they are in power or not, and what their policies have to do with the actual crisis, they'll always find a relation.

Even if there is little we can do about it, and even if conservative representatives feel the need to go along with whatever, our responsibility as ordinary citizens will be to try and limit the push to something approximately reasonable. So keep your eyes open and don't let the panic get to you, though that doesn't mean be careless about the crisis.

One thing that annoys them greatly right now is, that it seems the popularity ratings for Trump are still high, which is why the big news channels started to censor (or "not cover") the press conferences of the elected president of your country. It would be really sweet if despite all this crisis, Trump could win again, crazy to think about, but you never know with this guy.

You realize the saudis are engaging in a genocide right now and they seem to be Trumps best friends. We are supplying the weapons for their scorched earth campaign.

"No, you are". Sorry, pal, won't work on me. There is really nothing that compares to what happened in over a dozen countries around the world under the socialist bootheel. There are diplomatic games, wars and compromises, and you will always find the hook in how we are not exactly clean players ourselves, but you got plenty of skeletons in your closet. Plenty.

And Iran, buddies w/Obumbles and his merry band of progressive idiots, is the largest exporter of terrorism, with the blood of hundreds of thousands on its hands.

Stop being a petulant child. Grow the fuck up and deal with the real world.

Yeah, should get back to that. Though frankly, this thing is certainly sliding into all kinds of other issues, and you can't just blame us for that...

It's also kinda that everyone's waiting more conclusive data from the tests.

That is literally what you call the military tactics that they are using. They are actively blockading food and water in a genocide on Yemen.

Almost got into a fight at the grocery store just now.

I'm waiting for at least 30min due to only one lane being open and the two ladies in front of me were busting out the coupon box. Seriously, they must have scanned hundreds between the two.

Anyways, they FINALLY finish and I'm about halfway done fitting my things onto the belt when this dude behind me starts leaning on MY cart, slouched over it. His dirty ass face was inches from my fruit!

I looked over and shooed at him and said "hey man, get away from my cart!"

"What? It's just a cart man!"

"There's a corona virus scare going on right now and I don't need you breathing on my food."

"You gonna get the corona virus mafacka, you old ass gonna get it. I can't get it, I'm young."

"..."

"I just don't want you coming near my food."

"Old ass..."

Take a step closer... "I'm in better shape than you, I guarantee it"

Turns his back "I aint' talking to you anymore man, I'm talking to my woman"



Doesn't sound like much but it got tense. The entire store heard it and this is a large super mart. Closest I've been to having to choke a person to death in a long time.

Anyways, you just don't lean on other people's carts with THEIR food in it. * Not during this shit. **Or ever.

Hmm, half of all the problems are in NY where everyone from the Government mail room up to the Mayor of NYC and the head to their Health and Human Services department were saying "Nothing to see here, go about your business, go see a movie, go to the festival, spend some money in China town," all the way till March 11th?

Howaboutdat?

So right now we are standing at 120k confirmed cases with 2k deaths.

We still don't really have a good idea of the total spread including unregistered cases of carriers just moving on with their lives. The problem is that every death is almost guaranteed to be investigated and registered. But that's not at all true for every infection.

I admit a sudden doubling of deaths in two days doesn't look good. But it might also just have doubled the number of infections in that time we don't know about, which would put it into context.

I'm not exactly at ease about that, but the data is not yet enough for me to run for the hills. Need more to push me over that edge.

I always hated this sort of shit, no matter any crisis. There are unbelievable people that think they can just touch your stuff on the belt and get all close and personal or cough at you from behind or whatever.

The only thing I like a bit about the crisis, is that it generally has made people more mindful of things they should always have been mindful about. Not everyone, but more than before.

No there's never an agenda with Chris Murphy (my senator.... *shiver*.) As others have said, this swing between "Trump didn't act fast enough!" and "Trump was scare mongering and being a racist by closing off travel to China et al!" is kind of amusing. The lack of self awareness is pretty big these days.
