Somehow, Lapschies made it. While U.S. studies show that up to about 27% of people over 85 with the coronavirus don’t make it, news reports from around the globe point to a handful of hardy survivors like Lapschies.

Do the math when you see stats like that! THAT'S 73% OF PEOPLE OVER 85 WITH THE CORONAVIRUS MAKING IT!

Flash news: news organizations aren't in the business of news.

Here's a demonstration by typical headline: "News organizations are in the business of shaping opinions, and that's a good thing."

We can't. And as it is going, we'll go bankrupt trying. https://youtu.be/KCcFNL7EmwY

The savior complex of the left is dangerous. The Baizuo must not prevail.

Not what I meant. It I ever made a separation between Western society and the rest of the world, it was unintended.

Fact of the matter is, if Western society collapses, the rest of the world "depending on foreign aid" follows. Expect violent civil wars in third-world countries when their dictators can't feed their people enough anymore.

Or you were going for a tongue-in-cheek response and I'm sorry, the joke went woooosh :(

Apparently Italy is lying on its death toll, reporting inflated numbers by way of anyone dying in a hospital of any cause, if tested positive for WuFlu and no matter the real cause of death, the cause of death will be reported as WuFlu. This leaves absolutely open the credibility of any country's numbers.

Truly we are in a thick fog. No idea how many are infected due to its stealthy properties, no idea how many are actually dead from it due to countries' governments creating numbers out of thin air.

The only certainty is that Western society suffers from it.

Possible silver lining: if there are more cases than reported, but not deaths, then it's not as deadly as it's presented.

The president, who is not a doctor

Fake news! Trump has several doctorate degrees! Just, not in medicine.

Omnipresent grafitti and decay.

Because it's not their properties. People are just neither respectful nor grateful of what's not theirs, especially if it was handed for no reason. See: people making awful decisions with government handouts, aka "not-your-money."

And I quote: "Do [You] feel better ?", implying the other guy, according to you, would feel better for "creating an argument about semantics here". That's getting personal, unnecessarily may I add.

To me this is reminiscent of the plans put forth by various governments to get out of economic depression (like the New Deal): go into debt by way of public investment to support the poorest, dampen the economic dive, and reduce investments regularly to eventually hand the economy back to the free market once it's stabilized and running. The public debt will take a hit. Growth itself will be on the low side for a while, but that's better than outright taking a dive due to small businesses, that employ the greatest part of the population, defaulting from crippling net deficits (i.e. the currently government-enforced lack of activity makes them lose too much money, unemployment rates explode, people aren't confident to buy overall, banks don't feel comfortable handing loans, leading to more financial difficulties...)

The news are going around that the US isn't the only country eyeing or having already applied a stimulus plan. I am not an economist, so I hope they know what they all are doing.

Let's remember that the Great Depression ended with a second World War. Hopefully we aren't in a Great Depression yet.

Edit: and from what I gather, there are meds being tested to combat the virus in clinical trials. Very hopeful! Stay positive!

The e-thot singing "ok boomer" in a Bernie shirt is one giant pile of contradictions. It's laughable.

You make a good counter-point to a valid assertion regarding the olden ways of putting "www" before every website address, but it's weakened by your attitude. No need to get personal, especially when the person you replied to had a "slash ess", or /s.

Asian-typed Americans: "honorary whites, so we are not rayciss!"

WuFlu: "Slanted-eyes folks, so you are rayciss!"

I just love finding more leftist double-standards.

Trump is now armed with knowledge privy to Presidents as well as many achievements, which he didn't have before taking office. I can't wait! This will be glorious!

Consider this: $2000 is chump change in an economy stricken with runaway inflation.

How do you get runaway inflation? By increasing demand, taxing supply, and ruining small businesses. The demand gets increased by forcing wage raises ($15/h wage anyone?) leading to people having more money to spend, and the supply gets taxed as "business tax", and business must recoup both costs, so they pass the costs down to the customers. Small businesses can't handle the cost of operation while providing goods and services at competitive prices. They must lay people off. Big businesses end up with no competition and a surplus of available workers (ironically keeping the value of the work hour stagnant: if you want a raise, I'll just fire you and employ someone else, we are not in shortage of wageslaves). Runaway inflation ensues, people get poorer despite earning more currency.

Another benefit: Europe's issue with invaders passing stopped, as the NGOs stopped "rescuing" them. The covid situation is giving Europe breathing room. Who'd have thunk?

Or find a pic of Trump/Pepe gold and link it :)

The Mods have explicitly said they don't accept donations, and I think Gold would fall under "donations". Moreover, there is no "advantage" associated to Gold for those who get them here, unlike reddit.
