Default Is this the new normal?

SARS, Swine, Avian, Corona.

Has Corona set the bar for all reactions? What made this one different other than being an election year?


Or do they all happen on election years?

I'm not big on conspiracy theories because too many people can't keep their mouth shut. If the overreaction was only in the U.S. I might be inclined to think it's related to the election, but it's worldwide this time. What makes this one so different? No clue.

There was no way to control the cat once it was out of the bag.

If the Chinese wanted to hurt the economy to get rid of Trump then they succeeded. However, Trump's numbers are going up.

The good news is the governor of Nevada just banned the use of hydrochloroquine to treat COVID-19 on advice of his head medical guy Ihsan Azzam who isn't a licensed physician in the USA and who only practiced medicine briefly before coming here from Africa in the 1990's. This is because Trump "touted" this as a possible treatment and some idiotic couple thought it was the same as fish tank cleaner and one of them died. And that it hasn't been double-blind studied for COVID-19 treatment (like every other thing in the world) and has only been used to treat malaria and arthritis for the last 70 years.

China doesn't want Trump either, nor does Iran. Italy is possibly an innocent bystander caught up in the mess.

Any word on impact at the Vatican? Wasn't the pope fluey a few weeks ago?

Keep in mind that the Dems have their own foreign meeting and conversations that we are not privy to. They've been caught doing it before.

Virus real? YES
Virus being overblown for maximum damage? YES

About 4 or 5 people need to cough and sneeze on that asshat and see if he has a change of heart suddenly.

I don't see how a non medical person could override a Dr. prescribing an approved drug. Some politicians are bound to get a case of lead poisoning if they get people killed due to their over reaching proclamations.

way over blown. Just not sure who is gaining from it. Seems to damage the economy. Unless all these azz clowns in the govít have insider info or have purchased masks stock before it went nuts.

IMHO the whole thing was worsened by blatant virtue signalling.

Everyone in authority wanted to be seen by their public as doing more to fight this than the next guy.

Same reason we have such ridiculous laws in this country for certain things. You're better of murdering someone here than if you street race or drive impaired.

I agree, but have used different works to describe this dynamic: Every ****ing democrat is trying to out-stupid the last guy.

My friend (the bike shop guy) and I were talking about this yesterday too. Some years, the seasonal flu kills as many as 60,000 Americans, and no one says a word. Now we have a flu that has killed what? 700-800, and the whole country is losing their minds?

Things will be interesting come June, when this thing has died out, and the death toll is something like 8,000.
