    Trump's schtick is also running companies into the ground, with a half-dozen bankruptcies under his belt. Let's hope that doesn't happen this time around, but it doesn't look good.
    And he bounced back and became president. There's that.
    Which is why I am waiting for the same thing to happen that has happened every time he has bounced back, he runs something else into the ground. Unfortunately, right now, it is our Country that he is running into the ground.

    Yeah, it does go to show that you can run a fraudulent "college" and still get most Republicans to vote for you.

    Let the readers note that once again Angelo opines with what he fantasizes his enemies would do, and, surprise surprise! It's hyperbolic, libelous and completely untrue.

    Angelo works to separate the world into "us" and "them" and makes every effort demonize the "them" at every opportunity, even when it requires that he go off topic to do it.

    There is a great deal of psychology written about this, and how it is necessary for them to do this othering and demonization so that they don't have to face their own role in the destruction of society. The psychologists report that this makes them feel powerful and important and that they have a compulsive need to maintain this sense of power, even if it requires fabricating stories to do so. Indeed, this is exactly the behavior that is necessary for a genocide to happen.

    Angelo - you have absolutely no evidence to support your fantasy about what "The Left" would do. Moreover, there is significant evidence against it. Please stop making up negative stories about us. It makes you look like a sociopath - and if you are not a sociopath, I assume you would appreciate the advice on how not to look exactly like one.
    Sweden has a left of center government that has [ until now] not taken measures to safeguard it's people as compared to say, Australia, as this link shows. Sweden has less than half Australia's population yet has 400 deaths as compared far less than 100 deaths in Australia. Is that a fair enough comparison of the left VS right?


    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-...roach/12118422

    Sweden has so far recorded more than 400 coronavirus deaths — about 10 times as many as Australia. Its population is around half that of Australia.

    But its Government is standing by its relatively relaxed approach to the pandemic.

    Rather than telling people what to do — or, worse, telling them off — the Government is asking Swedes to do the right thing, and giving them the liberty to prove they are responsible citizens.

    While the Government has taken some measures, such as limiting social gatherings to 50 people and closing high schools and universities, experts say it is betting on Sweden's "social obedience".

    But that's a lot of trust to put in your people at a time of global pandemic, and a gamble that could have catastrophic consequences
    Sweden's left of centre gouvernment has fucked up its response and is now edging towards 600 deaths.

    Trump's America has fucked up its response and is on track to overtake Spain in total deaths *today*.

    I know who did more harm.

    Considering you'reca creationist, could you possibly explain whst you think the term 'more evolved' means in this context?
    It's kind of like how creationists think we evolved from apes

    That is a good article, so I'd thought I'd quote a couple things I learned. The article also reminded me of how FFvC spent a good portion of February seeking revenge upon those he felt went against him during the impeachment process.

    The loss of stockpiled respirators to breakage because the federal government let maintenance contracts lapse in 2018 is Trump’s fault. The failure to store sufficient protective medical gear in the national arsenal is Trump’s fault.
    <snip>
    If Trump truly was so trustingly ignorant as late as January 22, the fault was again his own. The Trump administration had cut U.S. public-health staff operating inside China by two-thirds, from 47 in January 2017 to 14 by 2019, an important reason it found itself dependent on less-accurate information from the World Health Organization. In July 2019, the Trump administration defunded the position that embedded an epidemiologist inside China’s own disease-control administration, again obstructing the flow of information to the United States.
    <snip>
    The World Health Organization declared a global health emergency on January 30, but recommended against travel restrictions. On January 31, the same day the United States announced its restrictions, Italy suspended all flights to and from China. But unlike the American restrictions, which did not take effect until February 2, the Italian ban applied immediately. Australia acted on February 1, halting entries from China by foreign nationals, again ahead of Trump.

    And Trump’s actions did little to stop the spread of the virus. The ban applied only to foreign nationals who had been in China during the previous 14 days, and included 11 categories of exceptions. Since the restrictions took effect, nearly 40,000 passengers have entered the United States from China, subjected to inconsistent screenings, The New York Times reported.

    I’ve bolded Angelo’s original claim to know the evil mindworks of the monstrous left.

    Readers can note that it has not one fucking thing to do with whether Sweden is social distancing. No one thing.
    Nice Dance, Angelo, but that’s all it is.

    I repeat, you have NO evidence to back up your vile claim that “The Left” wants people to die.
    You are making a vile claim, and you are making this up out of thin air to demonize others.
    When confronted with your fabricated claim, you change the subject.

    So let the record show that Angelo made a disgusting and libelous claim about “the Left” and everyone in it, and he admits that he completely made it up just to increase hate in the world.

    Shame on you.

    Well, if Dr Oz approves.

    Remember, the right-wing is against Governments picking winners and losers, or being in charge of paying for the national health care system, but if Pres. Trump gets a tingly sensation over a medication, get ready to sold hard on that ‘miracle cure’ as if it were from Jesus.

    You seem to be the one that came up with the plot. So that is clearly where your mind apparently is, looking for ways to take advantage of an epidemic.
