No no that's the Chinese government: distracting from Hong Kong
@bobs and vegene, the protesters are back at it. Hopefully they can make up some ground
Or, you know, the CDC and medical experts across the globe could be correct in that this needs to be taken seriously. Now, that doesn’t mean you need to run out and start prepping, but social distancing, being sure to wash your hands, and other simple measures can make a huge difference. At this stage, the most important thing is to mitigate the spread and to “flatten the curve” so the hospital infrastructure is not overwhelmed. Also, even if you are young and asymptomatic, you can still carry the virus and potentially pass it on to someone more vulnerable
tl;dr don’t panic but do take it seriously
@Ryanmg2, that's my stance. I'm not afraid to catch the virus because I know I have a healthy immune system (I had a physical a few weeks ago that indicated that), so I know I will likely only get mild symptoms at worst. I'm more afraid to spread it to people, especially those that are more vulnerable. Rather than panic, I will simply listen to the CDC/WHO precautions and maintain social distancing, wash and sanitize hands regularly, and not go out if I'm feeling sick.
What why would you think the government needs a distraction. Trumps been doing great the corona virus was an unexpected kick in the nuts to trump.
@CocoasBro, the distraction is from the patriot act being extended to wiretap US citizens and police blatantly murdering citizens for "alleged firearms violations"
@Medic135, sounds interesting tell me more
@Medic135, blatantly murdering? Calm down, man.
@RogueKnight, if you kill someone in their home while theyre asleep, its blatant murder plain and simple. I'll calm down when the police officers responsible are in chains away from their loved ones forever.
@Medic135, i see
So one attorney with an obvious agenda speaks and it is unquestionably the truth now?
@Medic135, I will be honest I haven’t heard about this can you mention a few cases of this? I’m not doubting it’s happened but from your comment it sounds like you’re implying that this has happened to several people recently and I would have thought I would hear about that
@George Feeny, im referencing one specific case, happened the other day. Duncan Lemp was his name, he was 21 and had a baby on the way
@RogueKnight, its not the first or last case, never trust your government, the lawyer is citing witnesses namely the girlfriend who was also senselessly shot by the county police cowboy brigade
@Medic135, because the girl is an impartial witness who has no reason to lie, right?
And regardless of age or whether or not he had a baby on the way he was also a criminal with violent tendencies. Bad people have children too. he was known to be in possession of firearms despite not being able to legally do so. He was also very anti-government.
if this was some sort of hit by the government don't you think they would have made it less obvious?
As I have told you before I am a cop and I know how law enforcement works. I have seen the lies on both sides. And I do not believe this girlfriend or the lawyer for a second. both of them have every reason to lie and make the cops the bad guys. Especially since the lawyer and the girlfriend probably share the same philosophies as the boyfriend.
@RogueKnight, he did not have a criminal history or violent tendencies. The SEARCH (not arrest) warrant on him was for a third party report of him possessing illegal firearms. Imagine a world where i can call the police in your town and just claim you have something you shouldn't, so they send an entire swat team at 4 am and kill you in your crowded home
@RogueKnight, philosophies be damned, a no knock search warrant based on a third party claim made legal by a ridiculous red flag law and enforced by a trigger happy cop who failed his fire department exam is no America, and this warrant never tagged him as being an immediate threat to police or civilians.
I am fairly anti government, you wanna come serve a warrant on me guns drawn? My personal ideas should mean nothing to you, they're mine and mine alone. Until I'm known to be violent, its reckless to assume i will be as an excuse to get "tactical" on me
@CocoasBro, look up EARN IT act. The despicable commies need people destracted so they can get bills passed while no one is looking
@G1ngerB0y, ive heard about it.
The left lost the impeachment and Biden was losing terribly so the media is using this as a distraction and now hoping for Trump to fail. Meanwhile they slip in abortion funding into the Coronavirus relief bill
@ExpansionOfTime, this is accurate actually. The media has been following the left this whole time so why stop now
@ExpansionOfTime, please dont call cnn/msnbc media left. They are republican lite at best. We do bot have a left party or mainstrem media
@Implicit88, ....msnbc is Republican? Do... do you own a television
@Implicit88, cnn the orange man bad show, the open the borders news network, the everything is racist programing, you need to reconsider how far left youve gone if cnn and msnbc is starting to look far right buddy.
@Medic135, i said republican lite. They are basically a milder republican form.
@CocoasBro, you need to look at how far right youve gone if you think these shows are far left. Here is a fact, over 70% of the population wants a single payer healthcare system, yet it is considered a far left idea. Its actually a main stream idea and should be considered the middle. Yet all news organizations hate this idea and attack it from the right. This is just one example@but even more issues are like this. Look at war, taxes, corporate socialism, money in politics.
@Implicit88, i know what stats youre quoting and youre quoting it wrong. Its 70% of the democrates want a single payer system and thats only if you dont mention the fact that you would have to give up private insurance and medicaid. Then it drops radically.
@Implicit88, also all those channels are pro bernies healthcare act as far as i know. Even if theyre not specifically pro bernie sanders.
Meanwhile fed injects 1.5 trillion to big banks as a bailout.
Insert this into the same picture meme with we gona die and corna virus
