If just a few thick headed people finally understand the magnitude of what's happening, they may not be so eager to spread the disease.

No.

They're still in the phase where they think is and will only affect the blacks or other non-whites.

Once it hits the non-whites, they're gonna be really mad.

Nah. I doubt they ran this by the WH beforehand and everybody has been noticing the count approach 100k. I think the blowup is from some other story we haven't seen yet.

They kinda did when they used it as an excuse to upend air travel, pass the PATRIOT Act, and reorganize a good amount of the federal government.

Oh, I remember Lindsey Graham and others calling Al Quadra an 'existential threat' to the country.  And every small town was sure that their local strip mall would be blown up next.

Live at the time or no, the real question that needs to be asked is why does he hate America? If you weren't peeing in your pants with fear and demanding we invade Iraq you might as well have been cheering for Mom to keel over dead in her apple pie.

Don't forget, we had to invade Iraq because somehow that had to do with terrorism.  Couldn't wait for that mushroom cloud, right?

Should murder be illegal?  If I kill one person it's an even smaller percent of the population.  What percentage of the population do I have to kill before you think I should be punished?

so, when I checked in on fark early this am, there was a Trump tweet thread - him screaming about the NYT.

Guess this might be the story they called the White House to ask for comments before going to press?

"We're running a front page piece tomorrow that details the failings of this administration, including a delay in response and some information on investments in pharmacueti.....ok....well, we just wanted to give you a chance to.....I see."

That a farking lot of front page for the NYT - nary a photo in sight.

Hope it gives Donald a biatching headache.

And what, 2% of the population has caught covid. Multiply that number by 50 to get an idea of the death toll when it's done working it's way through the population. It blows my mind that so many people are cool with 3-5 million dead if it means "saving the economy."

I remember the "do you want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud?" From Republicans so yes. They most definitely said we would die.

Do we know that yet?

I only ask as a red-state resident where on-demand testing ended after a week and where a whistle blower stepped forward to accuse the Governor of lying and was promptly fired for insubordination.

That 2%? If it were actually that low, I'd imagine they'd be crowing about it as a success. It's likely way, way higher.

Don't worry. There will be an equivalent short-sighted knee jerk to give the government more power after this as well.

Everyone considered him the coward of the country
He'd never stood one single time to prove the country wrong
His mama named him Donny, but folks just called him Yellow
But something always told me, they were reading Donny wrong
He was only fortythree when his daddy caught pneumonia
I looked after Donny, 'cause I had sworn an oath.
I still recall the final words his daddy said to Donny
"Son, my life is over, but yours has just begun"
"Promise me, son, not to do the things I've done
Walk away from griftin' if you can
Now it won't mean you're weak if you don't turn another dime.
I hope you're old enough to understand
Son, you don't have to think to be a man"

And I recon y'all know how that song ends.

Something about a fat man with a flag pole rammed up his ass and an apple in his mouth, roasting over the coals of a human rights tribunal.

One, what percentage of the population are you okay with needlessly dying, because for me it's 0%. Two, you must have been in a coma from 2001-2008. All the Bush administration did for years was bang the war drum about Al-Qaeda and say if we didn't kill them over there, they were going to kill us over here. We got embroiled in not one but TWO farking wars over that shiat.

TL;DR - shut the fark up. Now.

Jesus fark. Are you really that self absorbed that you honestly think as long as you come out of this okay it's no big deal?

Here's the problem, right here in a post. A whole bunch of people in this country do not give a flying rat's ass how many people die. Millions? Fine. As long as it isn't me, go ahead and die and decrease the surplus population.
