    I'd be perfectly happy okay with letting them go down with Trump and the Trump Virus - if they weren't going to take the rest of us down with their stupidity.

    There will be another pandemic if the underlying causes are not dealt with. You carry on with your virtuous (and fucking tedious) cheato bashing for the amusement of the clowns on here and yourself.

    The WHO has been monitoring animal viruses trying to keep an eye out for crossover to humans for many years.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Yes they have and they have been sounding the alarm about these "wet markets" for years but there is not enough pressure to get them shut down. I think it is time to start making people aware as to why we are now in the situation we are in and start ramping up the pressure to shut these facilities down before another pandemic kicks off somewhere else.

    Oh and the Chines government ought to be paying reparations for the damage they have caused.

    The good news is, the affects of a future pandemic in the US could be quite mild after the deaths from the existing Coronavirus epidemic and the deaths of other treatable diseases and whatnot that couldn't be addressed because the existing epidemic overwhelmed our medical system. So we have that silver lining.

    You carry on with your virtuous (and fucking tedious) cheato bashing for the amusement of the clowns on here and yourself.
    Yeah... bashing.

    - Why didn't he do anything for a couple months
    - Why is he competing with States on equipment procurement
    - Why no leadership in a economic support bill that would have allowed for states to shut down without as much fear of crashing their state economies

    Yeah, so tedious.

    That's right, I'm not interested in the tedious cheato bashing.
    Or honest criticism. Or any criticism. Or honesty.

    Why don't you wow us with a breakdown of just how brilliant Trump was by downplaying the virus while it was spreading, talking up the stock market as it was tanking, and contradicting medical experts while they're standing next to him shaking their heads at his rank stupidity.

    It's not "bashing" if it's valid. You seem to think Trump has done and cannot do anything wrong. You're like the King of Swamp Castle from Monty Python after Lancelot has inadvertently slaughtered the wedding guests. "This is supposed to be a happy occasion! Let's not bicker and argue about who killed who!"

    Look, there will be another pandemic regardless of whether the causes are understood. The cause of this one happens to be understood, and it is not China alone. There are thousands of these wildlife markets in Asia, not just China, and those countries are now moving to control them as much as possible. However, some novel infections start from other situations where people come into contact with animals, including livestock. So blaming China will do nothing to stop pandemics. Neither will blaming Trump, although, in his case, it might help to stop foolish voters from trying to get him reelected and future presidents from behaving as stupidly and incompetently as he has. Sometimes it makes sense to bash a president for poor performance in office, just as you and other right wingers do when Democratic presidents are in office. That is why the Constitution protects freedom of speech.

    Then shutting these places down is very important.

    I never said it was China alone. But this particular outbreak came from China.

    I have already said that. Shut every single one of them down now wherever they are. Countless pubs and restaurants have been shut down, get these places shut down. And not just because of the threat of a pandemic but for the general poor animal rights. These places are horrific. (yes, I know, we have some poor conditions in the west)

    But blaming China for THIS pandemic is apt. There needs to be consequences for it.
