Well, here we are... a 9/11 every day, and Trump has not even so much as mentioned the virus since before the election... and he's scheduled around two dozen White House Christmas parties.  'Murica!

Might I suggest that the military send an ultimatum to the White House to force them the turn over the terrorist osama bin trump.  If they don't, all trump things should be carpet bombed as well as the states that have harbored his terrorist group.

That's because if you get all your news from Trump, then the virus ceased to exist after the election, just as he promised.

Check and mate, reality.

We are becoming a failed state, and at this point I'm not even sure competent leadership can fix what is wrong, because it's not just the organization chaos that's been introduced but a large swath of the country that is blind to the obvious problem. It's like an alcoholic, you can't force them to get sober, they have to realize there's a problem and then WANT to get sober before outside help can achieve anything meaningful. If a half million dead Americans isn't enough to do it then is there any hope for the problem getting fixed?

Good. May they all catch COVID and farking die.

If even after all the shiat the trump regime has done you still go to a christmas party with them during a pandemic, you deserve all you get.

To think for years we had to listen to the over-reacting panic and fear mongering (R)epugnants talk 9/11 every day to justify their horrid ideology of fear because reasons. Yet we now have 9/11 every single day and it is crickets from them.

Things were bad in 1990s, maybe even 1980s, but there were still a few Republicans you could at least respect. Now they are literally the worse most deplorable humans of our society. Thinking we may need a few more daily 9/11s to free us from the tyranny of Stupid.

During 9/11, Murica's mayor helped the saudis escape before being questionned by the FBI.

During the pandemic, Murica's mayor has been helping spread the deadly disease.

In the 80s, he became famous because he kicked the italian mafia out of NYC... to let the russian mafia take over.

And theres still a lot of people that continue to say he was one of NYC greatest mayor.

/the guy is 110% a piece of shiat and always has been and the medias need to stop saying how farking great he is/was

If we keep it up at this rate, by February it will be a 9/11 every 8 hours.

It's like TGI Fridays except instead of every day being like Friday, every day is like 9/11 or a mere Pearl Harbor.

Back in maybe April or May I made my best imitation of Covid, just mimicking what was known at the time. For fun.

That shiat wiped out the planet better than any virus I ever implemented before - and don't get me wrong, I've unlocked every disease, this was no noob effort.

Knowing what we know now, with the damage to internal organs, etc, I'm actually hesitant to simulate it again.

Guys, I'm starting to think we're spending our "defense" budget on the wrong things because it's not exactly keeping us safe.

Thanks to our dear leader...Captain Covid..aka the spray tanned turd...its the gift that keeps on giving

So... white elephant in the room. And I apologize because I know it's too soon, but ... (again, I'm sorry)... how much is this saving tax payers? The vast majority of them were seniors living off social security and medicare.
 
2020-12-03 3:10:26 PM  
Yeah, but how many people who died on 9/11 had pre-existing conditions?

9/11 and covid are nothing alike. Our covid problem is caused by inept leadership ignoring the warning signs and believing that America can do whatever the fark it wants without consequences. 9/11 on the other hand...er..well... carry on.

When I was in HS many years ago, we spoke of social security would not be available after the Boomer age.

Fark the American Taliban for allowing 9/11 to happen.

Fark the American Taliban again for actively encouraging COVID to take over.

Just fark them back to the stone age. I am so tired of sharing oxygen with that inferior species.

A quarter of a million people * the average SSA and Medicare benefit per month * 6 = total taxpayer savings. The overall US economy is a little more complicated than that simple equation. There were checks for unemployment that went out for many of those 6 months. That alone probably completely offset the taxpayer savings ... or at least allowed the ledgers to be cleverly (semi) squared.

More than died in the attacks on Pearl Harbor.

So, yay. So much winning!

If they posted some video for 24 hours of people literally dying in Covid wards on all the channels, you bet your ass people would start to wake the hell up.

Covid has always been more of a threat than Islamic terrorism.  Yet the people in charge right now simply wont admit it...why?  because trump is fundamentally incapable of dealing with this.

It wouldn't make any difference. The usual suspects would continue to cry 'hoax,' 'pre-existing conditions,' and 'they were about to die anyway.' Cult followers can't be reasoned out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

That is not how a 1-3$% mortality rate works, but then you know that. And, worse, they know that.

Oh, it's a death cult alright. When some 3000 were counted dead in Wuhan by early March, none too many Farkers believed there was much to worry about. Where's the School House Rock song 3000 Is Not A Lucky Number song?
 
2020-12-03 3:35:41 PM  
Well the US death total is way past twice the US deaths in WW1 figure (117k), five times the US Vietnam war deaths (58k) and is heading towards the WW2 total of 407k.

Possibly.  But my point is that like the extended ptsd that the nation experienced that caused people to do things like join the army, put flags on their trucks, and other craziness, I could see a good percentage of the country waking the hell up and realizing we are at war with this damned virus.

Heck, I dont know...why not just have a press  conference say that this virus is from another planet, and was sent here to kill humans in advance of an invasion by aliens, and if we as a species can fight off this virus, the aliens cant come to Earth?

this is true.  There are no real Republicans left.  They shifted to crazy.  And you can blame the alliance created by Gingrich for this.  He is really to blame for this shift.  And when you get down to it, the guy is a crook and everyone knows it.  But he made his deal with the evangelicals and made the stupid Contract with America that the idiots bought into...and what do you want to bet that those who voted FOR the Contract with America are also the ones who support Trump?

I said it at the time, in a sense challenging friends and family who were acting like the terrorists were going to blow up every national monument in America...I said "if these guys were REALLY that smart and calculated, they would simply send a hundred or so guys into America and have them blow themselves up in malls or some other crowded venue...it would shut down shopping over night..."  Amazon did that for us, in a way, but the point is there was no threat as it was made out to be.  Osama hit a lucky bases loaded home run in the bottom of the 9th.  9 times out of 10 those guys get caught before they get on the planes or there is some mixup.
