LOL that wont be enough. Not even close. Iran, from their own experts, said that 40% of the capital will be infected by March 20.

You know who else is treating the virus like its fake news? Murica.

And then you add the insane costs the health care highway robbers are gonna charge people for vaccine, quarantine, ICU... it's gonna cost tens of billions if not hundreds in the end... but that could be fixed if congress finally did their job and put their foot down on the health care cartels throats but that'll never happen.

Once again, Trump makes idiots think he's done something good by dismantling the means to battle an issue, and then once the issue comes up again, signs a deal that spends money to break what he farking destroyed.

Truly a presidential man...
 
2020-03-06 9:44:56 AM  
To rebuild what he destroyed, rather.

Wanna see something funny with respect to costs and highway robbery? Look up hand sanitizer on Amazon. Some sellers are charging upwards of 100 bucks for a bottle.

Pieces of shiat.

Amazon always has shiat priced 500% up for some reason, at least on Amazon.ca

Just a price. Wasn't there something about soap not selling at all?  Yes it's hard to work and use soap, it's also hard to work and die of coronavirus.

Priorities I guess.

No, it'll just be one more in a line of utter failures that anyone smart can destroy with a quick Google search. It's why most of Trump's followers have 'thill yo prethident' and nothing else.

Save healthcare
Bring back blue collar jobs
Broker peace with NK
Forge better trade deals with China
Secure the southern border
Have better Wall St. and jobs numbers than Obama


He's pretty much a failure at everything other than making his base bigger failures and hated more.

You'd think conservatives would be more into clearing up a serious viral pneumonia pandemic, considering most conservatives are old fat pasty slobs.

It's really not that hard. Every time I get up from my desk I pass by the office kitchen or bathroom and wash my hands.

The backs of my hands feel like I have a sunburn now.

I'm just glad that Real Americans In The Know realize that The Civil War Flags of Missouri is the appropriate cipher book for when Trump yells about the Lying Press to alert them to a coming public health crisis. Sure glad they stocked up on Vitamin C.

Much like other prophecies, it's not super helpful or impressive if nobody knows what it means until after the fact.
 
2020-03-06 10:20:39 AM  
And lets put it this way.

Rich folks sign $ 8.3 b deal to convince the shareholders that we got this.  Protect the market at all costs.  But things don't seem to be stimulating the market anymore.  It's as if the market is tired of your vanilla advances and needs something more risque.

The bill has language prohibiting the funds from being redirected to any other cause but disease monitoring, testing, and treatment. That doesn't mean it won't get diverted, but shoes a level of weariness that I don't often see (and quite frankly is necessary.)

So cut 8.3 b from cdc budget to go to wall replace with this $8.3b.

I have always assumed those way-overpriced items were a form of money laundering.

For example, I was buying a Korg Volca drum synth, which costs $150 from the factory. There were people on eBay selling them for over $300. What kind of person looks up an item to buy on eBay, which can easily show you the lowest available price, and then goes on to pay twice as much? Perhaps the kind of person who has an arrangement with the seller - and in such an arrangement, the actual item itself need not even be shipped, and can be "resold" to the same "buyer".

I don't know if that actually happens, but it seems like a pretty easy setup. Walter White had his fake charity with fake donors, and it would be super easy for somebody to spend all day "buying" products from themselves and relisting them.

So maybe we  can stop the criticism of Trump, now?

plz? kthxbye
