If Covid is our enemy, does this count as providing aid and comfort?

And yet Republicans still believe the Clintons committed mass murders!

You expected Donnie to value civilian lives any better than he valued our soldiers?

AND WE TOLD YOU HE WAS GONNA!

Expecting any R to value life (other than their own) is a bridge too far.  I mean really.  These are people who are ok with depriving people of health insurance because reasons.

Jim Jones seen asking Satan to move to a less harsh level of Hell.  Satan responds by making an 11th Circle, specifically designed for this regime.

I saw that th FDA let theantibody tests in without verification. I did not see where this was intended to keep the economy open. Did I miss something?

Quoted because that's how I feel.

What does it take for the GOP to get off their asses.
 
2020-06-27 10:08:08 PM  
Well, that's it. Now I'm seriously on the fence about voting for Donald Trump.

Imagine the scale of the Senate investigations that would have occured if the name "Clinton" had been associated with that in any way.
 
2020-06-27 10:09:22 PM  
I hope next Attorney General is paying attention.

I would have thought that it was going to increase the profits of a large GOP donor.
 
2020-06-27 10:10:51 PM  
Damn , Trump sure is having a bad week today ..
 
2020-06-27 10:12:10 PM  
I don't have a GED in law, but it sure would be fun to charge Trump as an accomplice to homicide

This is how I know we will learn the absolutely hardest way there is.

And it is gonna scar the nation. For how long? I dunno. I'm sure we will do things that will shame us all and will try to go for a collective US amnesia.

I hope not.

Because of course he would sacrifice the workers and consumers in the name of the all mighty dollar.  Gods forbid he actually do something to help the 99% instead of being beholden to oligarchs while trying to keep his base energized.

As long as you are loyal to your team, you'll believe anything and follow them almost without exception.

When their profits start to be threatened. 

'Cause apparently losing elections isn't even scaring them.

We might even vote trump into a second term

How many Americans did Putin tell the POS POTUS to kill in order to wipe away some of his debt?  4%?  7%?  15%?  That has to be it, because I can't even fathom a child younger than the age-of-reason farking up this badly.  The deaths are intentional.

Is it really that far of a stretch of the imagination to think this?  I mean, after all, the POS POTUS doesn't give a damn about bounties on active duty military personnel.

Agreed, the mods fell down on this one, I hate Trump as much as anybody. But my first thought was, "There's no way that's true."

You don't have to dig that deep to find Treason in this administration. However, I agree with your insight.

He's killing us.

stan unusual: It's not just the antibody tests that are sub-par. https://www.abc4.com/coronavi​rus/95-percent-is-pretty-good-says-gov​ernor-herbert-referring-to-the-co-diag​nostic-covid-19-tests/


95%. As someone who has played D&D quite a bit, rolling a 1 comes up a lot more than is preferred.
 
2020-06-27 10:29:15 PM  
Everyone was panicky and desperate.  If the FDA hadn't done the emergency authorization then people would've biatched that not enough was being done.  The faulty tests were identified in a reasonable period of time.

Weatherkiss: Well, that's it. Now I'm seriously on the fence about voting for Donald Trump.


You keep being you. Carry on.
 
2020-06-27 10:31:47 PM  
That's... not what the article said.

It said the FDA allowed self-validated tests on the market under emergency use for 50 days. A number of them were crappy.
 
2020-06-27 10:32:58 PM  
I can't actually rage anymore tonight.  After the Putin shiat and the golfing and the ACA and the butterfly sanctuary and the police murders and all the rest.

I'm done for the night.

fark Trump.

Imma gonna walk way out here on this limb and suggest that D2S ordered the Covid virus be released from the Bat Lab (it's a bat that comes when you call him) thinking it would cripple the Chinese economy and make the U S economy super red hot and he'd cruise to his second and third term.  Oh, I hate this limb.
 
2020-06-27 10:34:12 PM  
If I or any of my family members get Covid at this late stage, I will be beyond pissed.  Our moron government is actively killing us to avoid bad PR.
 
2020-06-27 10:36:23 PM  
Let's make some room in prison. Gonna need it.
 
2020-06-27 10:36:43 PM  
No shiat. Whatever the most appalling possibility is, I assume Republicans will choose it. I'm rarely mistaken about that, sadly.
