Nothing will change except for the reaction to the next virus.
This will be remembered as all hype and next time people will ignore the warning.

I'd like to think that more people would start holding Trump accountable after all is said and done but honestly I don't see it happening.



Accountable for what exactly?
What are you getting at?

it's possible that after the hysteria dies down, the world will see the virus wasn't as bad as the media and governments claimed. then when the next pandemic hits, no one will care because no one will believe it's a legitimate threat.

i'm more worried about the hysteria in people than i am of the complications from the virus.


The problem is not enough people will care to do anything about it. As in vote the bastards out in November and demand the media be held accountable. Start building up enough of a counteraction to the corruption in the press and the government.

Yes, I know it's a pipe dream but can't a guy dream once in a while?

Its made me realize that if the Titanic happened now and if there weren't enough lifeboats like before we'd have a chit ton of men putting scarfs on their heads and slinking into a lifeboat. Likely, there would be about the same amount of women refusing to get on one LOL.

Nothing. They have nothing. Trump has done so much more to prevent this from spreading sooner and more quickly than it has than the previous president in 2009 and they can't stand it when he does something good for our country. So out come the baseless accusations with no proof of anything except Trump is a jerk. Since this isn't the mud pit that's as far as I'll go with it. One thing the other side can't do is be honest about Trump's actual achievements. Their disgust with the man's personality and the fact that he's interfering with their plans overrides their common sense and intellectual honesty. Watching them melt down every time he has success with something makes me smile.

I believe very strongly that this issue, as bad as it is, is being amplified by most of our media and certain bad actors in our government to blow up our economy so Trump doesn't get re-elected. Does anyone really think it would have gone the same way if the evil btch had been elected? Would Russia and Saudi Arabia be trying to hard to kill our oil sector?

They need to learn quickly that most of us can see through their BS, we know who the real criminals are and we're not going to stop supporting Trump for something he didn't do. In fact their behavior is making us stand by him even more, because we know what their motives are. If there is anything we can do about it we're going to destroy the Democrat party (or at least stand by and let them destroy themselves) and kick them when they're down. We have had enough of their BS.

The world will be pretty much the same. The same things were said for the past viruses. Claims of bioterrorism, people panic buying. It's all happened before.

And then people will forget about it as the series of "bombshells" and tabloid hit pieces continue. The general populace has a short attention span. They'll soon be consumed by their personal desires and withdraw into their personal bubbles again to worry about the things.

They'll pick up wherever the political soap drama currently is.

There will be what we missed articles. Articles about ehat celebrity gets a mugshot next. What politician or actor dies next. What the Pope just said.

There will be articles about crappy videos of obvious fake UFOs. What German politician said what. What Canadian official said what. What did some Saudi prince do or say. What hurricane hit where. What earthquake happened where.

I forgot where I was. What are we talking about?

Oh, snap. There's a new "novel" virus! Quick buy up everything. How can you be so inhumane? How can you not take this seriously? Yeah I was saying the world is overpopulated all last year, and we're running out of resources, but these are real people dying!!!

YOU ALREADY PREPARED!?!? WHAT ARE YOU? SOME KIND OF PREPPER!?!? Preppers are losers!!! But everyone should be prepared for SHTF... but not all year round. It's only proper to start stocking up when SHTF.

We can't trust the stats the government and media put out, but here are some stats from the media I prefer that back up whatever opinion I'm currently spouting.

I know a guy who knows a guy who's in the know. They say we're in trouble. But another guy I know who knows a guy is saying we're fine.

My favorite politician agrees with what I think. I mean yeah I think what I think because they said it first, but they're right. This politician I can't stand says something I don't agree with. They're dumb. How could anyone say that? Sure maybe it was taken out of context, but it's still stupid. Anyone who tries to explain it in it's proper context is just wrong. You shouldn't have to explain anything. It either feels right or doesn't. It doesn't resonate with me. It doesn't corroborate with how I feel.



Hey check out this new UFO video. If it's been posted before (Oh it has? A month ago??) the Mods can remove it.

If there is only a single take-away from this whole ordeal, I hope it is this. Having all of your manufacturing eggs in one basket is a terrible idea when something more serious than this comes around. While this virus is serious enough for certain groups, and I do worry about them, it's fairly mild to the majority of people. Making everything in 1 or 2 countries? That's pure insanity. Yes prices will go up, but I don't believe as much as people would think, especially if you have a properly distributed system in place for providing products and raw materials, it will lead to an average cost which will trend lower due to some of the countries involved.

Give it a rest. No one cared how long it took Obama to give a # about swine flu. Wanna run those numbers? If you make it about the president, you're a tool.

This is the one thing I would like to see changed. Now, this is from my point of view as an US citizen. (Should be obvious, but some here can't differentiate between facts and opinions.)

I would like to see the US bring back manufacturing primarily, if not completely, to our own country. One, because in that manner we can control our own means of production (Scary phrase, I know.) This way we wouldn't have to rely on another country when they themselves are greatly impacted by whatever disaster is occuring.

Two, I somewhat believe that taking advantage of another country's lack of regulations and therefore provision of cheaper production is somewhat akin to slavery. Sure, they're getting paid, albeit just barely, but the way many corporations operate, especially in poorer countries, economically suppresses them. They are disproportionately rewarded for having their natural resources taken from them to be used in far away lands. They never see the benefit that other people get to enjoy at their expense.

If the United States would bring back manufacturing, we would be able to control our own resources. Know how much we need in case of emergency. Avoid the risk of having short supplies when disaster strikes, and after time be able to pump revenue back into neglected areas.

If we can get over this tradesmen slump and get more people trained in automation, we very well could see a new industrial revolution.

I would like to see each country, nation, or etc. Be able to control their own means of production and use their own resources for their own benefit. I'd like to see a push for fair trades of imports and exports.

But, the people pushing globalisation only want the benefit of being able to remove resources from poorer/weaker regions and pump them into their big cities.

They don't care about the people providing them the leisures they take for granted. They'll complain about not being abke to get the newest iPhone, but want care about the men and women being taken advantage of to stand in the same spot for over 12 hours a day to push the same buttons over and over.

But the good thing is that there are reports of businesses in China beginning to take advantage of working from home, or at least remotely.

I did say at the very beginning of all this that we may be looking at a new China after all this is over. I may not have been far from the mark.

It would be nice to hear an end of all the horrible labor practices that are often reported from China. Maybe they'll take a long hard look at how they've been doing business and put some regulations in place that prevent companies from having almost complete control over their employees.

Short answer? Yes. Can you explain the difference between dystopia and a “one-world government”?

Wholeheartedly agree. Except. For what it does to your lungs/brain. And the obvious, the fact viruses never leave your system. Not ever. So... I dunno

Just curious what people are saying about WH not accepting 100-200k test kits 3 weeks ago. Surely we are in this together and Uncle Sam isn’t THAT exemplary...?

Or.

Why the “P” word was only issued this week by the WHO when it met their own criteria 3 weeks ago...

dystopia - as in each country or even state will be governed by its own rule. setting up their own way of living without the blessing of one world body such as the UN. Not sure if dystopia is the correct word. Maybe anarchy? It can't be an oligarchy either.

One-world government - as in the ONE SUPER world body. Think of the U.N. with the combined power of the U.S.A, China and Russia. As in a world body more powerful than the superpowers.

There will never be an flu again without a name and extensive media coverage. The click meters of various news outlets must be going through the roof and with everyone inside there is nothing else to do than browse the web or watch TV.

Yep, this could really be what's needed to stop "climate change" (if you are prone to believe it is man made).
If people are able to work from home during this time, why the hell shouldn't they work from home most of the time? Save the planet and save me from being stuck in traffic every morning and evening.

Everyone worried that the earth is going to end in 10 yrs. or is it 8 yrs now? When they could be working from home and saving the planet. That is why I despise the Left. They want everyone else to do things that they themselves aren't willing to do.

Also, lets hope this nonsense about getting our medicines and medical devices manufactured in China comes to end. Sooner rather than later.



Why do people have to fly in carbon spewing airplanes when they can hold their meetings online?
