Trump “literally caused” covid-19? Cite?
Caused it to be much worse in the US than it could’ve been*
nuance is hard
Why do you think the federal response in the US is so horrible when we had 2 months to prepare? It's almost like his decisions have directly led to everything that has happened and that will happen. Maybe instead of thinking of his reelection he should have focused on prevention and testing infrastructure so we didn't completely miss our chance to contain a pandemic virus. People are going to die because of him and the people who voted for him. Potentially a significant number.
Don't bother responding with your normal fox news bullshit because I don't particularly care.
Not so bad at the moment. Anything from here again is on the communities. I believe we’re much more as a country than just a figure head.
It’ll get bad due to selfish people. Those younger with only minimal stress from contracting the virus will not want to be quarantined or isolated so they’ll just self treat and still go about life. Not much Trump can do about that. It starts with each of us
this smells like the beginning of blaming people for getting infected
Donald Trump didn't cause the virus, but he sure isn't helping combat it. The fact that sports leagues are taking the rein to protect people with no cogent guidance from Washington is absurd.
reminder Washington is literally hamstringing local operations for political reasons. So much for community.
it's up to us to find toilet paper and diabetes meds for our neighbors on the local level. we can't rely on the apparatus with a mountain of money and willing experts at its disposal.
I mean he did. That npr article, if it's true, places the blame solely on him. They knew it was coming, they told him, he thought about himself. That was the time that any non selfish piece of shit would've started preparing and educating the population. Now it's everywhere and people are panicking because we went from nothing to shutting down states in a matter of a week. The best thing that could come from this is him catching it because of his arrogance.
Imagine typing this wall of text and not receiving a single like.
money doesn’t exist. We could be paying people to organize a national health system to address this and future health issues. But no. Foreign virus invaders etc
not even from dump
back in my day we didn't even have likes so we posted shit like that for nothin'
just powered by our own narcissism
Imagine having read it
Yeah he's been grossly negligent. But when I said he didn't cause the virus, I meant that he wasn't the reason it popped up in the first place -- it was some crazy bat in China. But yes, it wasn't like this snuck up on us -- they were discussing the spread of this months ago when it was almost exclusively a Chinese thing.
oh god, and everyone was in the college essay mode. it must have been hell for older folks
the amount of extraneous words I used to add to hit word counts for school bled into my normal writing style. was bad.
but i also used to hold to some form of grammar and use punctuation/capitalization/etc but e-posting has shredded that
I scooped 96 rolls of toilet paper today.
I will say though that he’s handled this extremely poorly so far. I do think the entitled culture we live in makes it more difficult than a lot of other countries for containment but the feds have handled their side terribly so far.
deranged trust fund kid talking about our entitled culture
dukebuckeye you voted for this
Sounds like you’re the dummy who didn’t keep the surplus value of your takes.
I cannot imagine that. Literally
why are you tagging me?
I don’t remember seeing that specific scenario on the ballot.
you voted yes just wondering now
Sanctuary cities and sanctuary period from ICE was very literally discussed every day during the campaign.
I like you and you have enough people piling so I won’t. But, trump literally ran on shit like that. If you didn’t see it you didn’t pay attention.
Joe_Pesci did you vote yes for the lulz or were you still a fucking idiot in 2016
i've been pinko commie since i was like 19
i mean i'm still a fucking idiot but i didn't support trump ever
So for the lulz then?
Joe was here when the RWDPC was a thing
i've never done anything for the "lulz" but i did think voting yes at the time was funny
maybe i'll dig up some longwinded post from right after i read Manufacturing Consent for the first time
hilarious as always, joe
did you think you were going to catch me as some secret trump guy?
No, I figured it was one of your shitty attempts at humor while you were (rightfully so) railing on a guy for being a trumptard in this same thread.
go to bed, old man
I’m younger than you, baldy
woke scolding bert is new and weird and i dont like it
i remember when i was in the minority opinion in saying that BP should basically be bankrupted for the Deepwater Horizon environmental disaster. the board has changed a lot.
in hindsight it's pretty weird that people from areas that were completely fucked by the oil spill were still were trying to defend BP at the time
I prefer the woke scolding Bert to the undressing me with his eyes Bert.
remembering early TMB current events or political debates is wild
The number of dudes that openly said that they’d never date a black girl was wild.
that one in particular sticks out in my mind because there were people in here basically saying i didn't know shit because i had never been to the gulf coast while simultaneously people were getting chemical burns from corexit from coming into contact with water miles from the coastline. even if people don't always agree, things are a lot better now.
I’m large and in charge
you’re not fooling me buddy
and that type of shit is somewhat recent even, glossing over the casual bigotry that just ran rampant with w2d/nog stuff
i'm talking about like just racial slurs at black posters for having the most mildly normal takes
We’ve got a thread dedicated to Taylor Rooks now though. So everything’s cool.
