    you are kidding, right?

    too many people too plugged into propaganda media...

    media slammed him when he wanted to stop traffic from infected areas then slammed him for not doing enough
    enough what? like cuomo screaming for ventilators he didn't need and is now handing out?
    millions were going to die, now the Santa Clara study shows the number of immune... the rate is nothing like the "models" that have been wrong all along...
    the french studies on hydroxychloroquine, don't show the same poor results reported in US liberal media... the same people blaming Trump for covid -19
    not the source, who allowed people from infected areas to travel the world

    I'm continually amazed at the TDS...
    in the information age, do so many not really look at other sources?
    look at Taiwan... no shut down... just common sense

    fake news repeating fake news is still not "news"

    remember the NYT, "yes, we know it is a hoax (Russian hoax), but it sells news papers"?

    sigh....

    A brief history shows we've always been angry and politically opposed. See July 4, 1776.

    Because no where else in the western world is there a growing divisive angry and politically opposed nation than in the United States? Britain was less demonstrative over Brexit than Americans are in their everyday lives. The vitriol and anger that is starting to pour out of the country centered on the distrust of MSM and the government and professionals in their fields is astounding, and it's only being exacerbated by social media and the growing number of "influencers" that are somehow bestowed journalistic integrity and trust based on their number of followers. This seems to be exaggerated by people's increasingly growing definition of research as "i googled it and found one or two articles that agree with my point of view and therefore my point of view is valid because I researched it"

    Just about everything that comes from any sort of government, journalist or so called 'expert, I will take as an outright lie until proven otherwise. In my 63 years on this planet, I have seen each of these sources be proven wrong time and time again.

    The sad part is, much like the boy that cried wolf, when an actual emergency exists, I will very likely be unprepared because I have learned to not take these sources seriously.
