Trump has been inviting CEOs to speak for some time now. Why the fuck did these morons only start freaking out when the my pillow guy did the same?

Is it because he's a Trump supporter? Christian? Both?

Having worked in the same industry, I completely disagree with your assessment. I personally think that it is pretty much not possible to find a cure for most diseases. The closest thing we are close to possibly curing is some genetic diseases with gene therapy. Even that is still in its infancy.

I worked for ~6 years through academic cancer research, hybrid academic-industy, and then pharmaceutical research. I don't think there has been any cure that has been discovered for anything and was stashed, and that is not based on some judgement call on the industry. I am basing my opinion on the actual nature of cancer and most other diseases and the nature of testing, from animal studies to human trial.

That's mostly because cures are almost impossible. How many actual cures have been discovered in all of human history?

You worked for a pharma company, so I'm assuming you were working on some cancer drugs. Do you honestly believe a cure for any type of cancer is possible?

What did I miss? Where is the next button?

edit: just found it. For me it clicks by itself when I scroll to the bottom of the page? Is that a bug, or expected behaviour?

He turned out to be an impersonator. Dude was never a government employee. Just added it to his twitter bio.

added a "link" icon, similar to the expand embed icons, to link posts, which will open the link in a new tab when clicked

That's an awesome feature. Thanks mods.

The only ones who should be deported are the shills telling us to ignore Trump's advice. And that is you and the guy you replied to.

People here are downvoting you, but you are absolutely right. Every single one of your comments is on point, but heavily downvoted.

People should really follow this advice. This is not a joke, or Trump wouldn't be taking it this seriously.

yep. The MSM is really desparate to put the blame on Trump, and if people knew it's China's fault, they would have a hard time selling their narrative. Therefore, they are all shilling for China.

Well, the best numbers are probably from South Korea which did extensive testing and a hella of an amazing job in tracing and quarantining anyone infected. Their death rate is 0.6% which I think is the best it could be. There are other factors of course, so 0.6% might be optimistic.

Yeah, because the only way for me to know that people are locked down in some Chinese cities, is if I was an expert.

Your comment is a low level troll.

Oh and I did not "espouse effectiveness" of any commies, Chinese or otherwise.

Also, avoid crowds and crowded places. If you want to get out, do something outdoors: hiking, skiing, running, biking, etc.

Avoid going to concerts, clubs, and packed closed door events.
