Re: Chinese journalists try to resist censorship
My problem is that there is such a constant barrage of fake news and false accusations against Trump it's hard for me to take anything seriously that anyone has to say about ways he may be mismanaging ANYTHING. I'm beyond caring.

But I am listening to the health people as much apart from all that politicizing as I can and taking THEIR advice.

Re: The Man is Fucking Evil!
The German government is not known to be like the Russian Internet Research Agency spreading intellectual disease and poisonous disinformation across the globe. When the Germans say the Trump administration tried to hijack a biotech firm with a $billion scheme to move the firm to the US with an eye to securing exclusive rights to the firms possible COVID-19 vaccine they cannot be so easily dismissed.

U.S. Offered ‘Large Sum’ to German Company for Access to Coronavirus Vaccine Research, German Officials Say

We all know the Germans have no respect for the Trump administration. They find him to be an incompetent megalomaniacal narcissistic buffoon, just like the rest of the world. But there is no reason, no need and no desire, for them to lie or exaggerate such a claim. Despite what the Trumperiesttas may try to justify or how hard they try to deflect there can be no doubt that Trump attempted to do just that.

To even consider such an scheme, let alone act on it, is proof of this administration’s callous disregard for the rest of the world community and Trump’s insensitive, indeed hostile, perspective of humanity.

The man is fucking evil.


Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

Since you are talking to yourself I hate to interrupt but since you might be indirectly talking to me my response is that I was responding to what was said in YOUR link.

Seriously though how accurate is the estimated mortality rate given that we don't really know how many people have been infected?

South Korea has had much higher levels of testing which allows for much better estimates. They are seeing about a 0.8% mortality rate.

One chart shows how the coronavirus is more deadly than the flu even in South Korea, where the COVID-19 death rate is low

From what I can see, this is the best estimate we have right now. We probably won't know the actual mortality rate until it's over and epidemiologists have done some extensive surveys.

Re: The Sociological Implications Of Corvid-19
Yeah in England, we call public toilets 'pubic toilets'. If it is in a home we call it the toilet.

Or the loo but that just shows bad breeding.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

-Attributed to Dawn Bertot Message 286

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.

You can’t take the criticisms seriously because they’re probably true. I can believe that.

Re: Chinese journalists try to resist censorship
Sure you can believe that, as does the entire Left. But the level of criticism far exceeds anything any other President, or even any human being at all, has ever had to deal with. This is Leftist craziness, this is not deserved by Trump. It's impossible for anyone to deserve such treatment. Especially a President who is doing his best to serve America and Americans.

Back on topic....
Greek Orthodox church says 'holy cup cannot carry disease', allows congregations to share spoon

quote:
Greek Orthodox churches across the country will allow congregations of hundreds of people to sip wine from the same spoon during mass because "the holy cup cannot carry disease," the Archdiocese said.

I doubt that. And it doesn’t change the fact that the criticism is very frequently true and that you falsely try to dismiss it as “fake news” (which is a sick joke coming from a fan of InfoWars)

And I remind you that there are far worse attacks being directed at the Left for far less reason. Such as the claim that Bernie Sanders would instigate a new Holocaust - when Sanders is a Jew who lost relatives in the actual Holocaust.

quote:
This is Leftist craziness, this is not deserved by Trump. It's impossible for anyone to deserve such treatment.

Since “Leftists” are treated worse - with no sign of complaint from you - and when the attacks are genuinely crazy I cannot believe your claim. Especially as Trump does deserve a good deal of the criticism and politicians must expect some underserved criticism, too.

quote:
Especially a President who is doing his best to serve America and Americans.

That would be more fairly said about Obama. It didn’t stop your attacks.

We are abiut to pass Iran and France in deaths.They are around 2600 deaths.
I heard some say Iran saw their early high infection rate as some sort of thing that might be able to be interpreted in a light that diminished the Twelver Shia religion.

France had a Roman Catholic religion that has historically been faithful to the religion but adverse to the Roman Popes.

Anybody think this is all irrelevant or not. Might have a relevance to some.
