So I made a thread criticizing Trump and our governments actions in response to this virus. As I mentioned in the thread, and all of the videos I have done

I can accept sometimes the government may need to infringe on our rights, shut things down etc, in dire situations.

But they should be incredibly transparent and honest when they are forced to do so; should be a limited as possble, should explain what the threshold for taking these drastic actions are to ensure they are not used carelessly in the future, should not be bailing out billionaires, etc.

And none of that is happening.

And we the people should question every government intrusion of our rights based on fearful worst case scenario events, because they have been misused over and over by the government before.

Yet almost no one is questioning them, which shows me this will set a precedent for the government to do it again and again.

Here are just a few questions that should be asked by everyone, and the government should have been answering everyday.


Please show me the proof of how many people would be hospitalized if we didnt shut down the country in the way we did, versus how many will be spared from that do to these measures?


How do you know for certain "whats coming"?

Whats is the threshold for how many people could potentially be hospitalized and the percentage chance of that before we in the future shut down the country like this? Were fears of west nile, h1n1 and others enough we should have shut the country down over them? Will we shut the country down over similar viruses like those in the future?

If these measures are necessary today, how do we know when they will no longer be necessary?

How many people will be saved from going to the hospital by shutting down the country?

how long can we afford to send people government money with the country shut down? How many could die as a result from shutting down the country?

How long must the shutdown be until we can be assured corona has no chance to overwhelm our system again?






I now realize, after being chastised by so many people, especially some trump supporters on here, how wrong I was.



You see, demanding the government answer those questions before placing us on total lock down, I thought i was just concerned about peoples rights, because the government has lied in the past using fear to strip people of our rights.

Turns out I was wrong as people have showed me. The real truth is I wanted to see old people die of sickness.

I am sorry, ill be a good little boy and not question the government again.

See they convinced me, if you are worried about the answers to those types of questions, or worried about the impact of putting the country on lockdown, you care more about your stupid rights and the economy than people dying.



So now I am changed. And I have found the real answer.


Government lcok down for at least 5 years.

Do you think thats too long? HOW DARE YOU!!!!!!!!! Your questions prove you want sick people to die!!!!!


This is a new virus! 600 people died in italy in one day!!!! And you want to worry about your precious rights to leave your house within 5 years? Disgusting.

Are you wondering how I came up with the time of 5 years, or why it needs to be a total lockdown? You might as well wear a hat saying you want people to die of the virus! Cant you see every question you ask is one more stumbling block to preventing people from dying?

If we only lock down for 3 months, there is no proof the virus couldnt come back. Same with 6 months. Same with 2 years. Its our duty first and foremost to do everything we can to protect ourselves from this virus, now is not the time to be complaining about your rights ofr the economy.

I thank you all for understanding that we must take every precaution necessary. This is what it means to be an american; to be brave enough to give up all of your rights to fight something we are told could kill a lot of people.

NO!!!! It's not long enough.

The 330,000,000 veals in this country need to stay in their boxes indefinitely, you could actually die at some point if you went outside and that's bad. Thankfully government is here to protect me.

P.S. If government can also wreck the economy and destroy the middle class I would be ecstatic. Both of those things are highly overrated and unnecessary.

I was home with my wife for 3 days and I finally had to go back to work when I found her putting rat poison in my coffee.

She said it was just for the virus but I wasn't sure.

I agree though. We, as Americans, are too stupid to have rights, freedoms and liberties.

It was difficult enough for me to decide on my own what socks I was going to put on my feet today, so I just duct-taped slices of raw ham to my feet instead.

OMG!!! You are right, clearly my idea of wanting to lock down for 5 years means I wanted people to die of the virus!


I am so so sorry! Ill make up for it.

Ill stay locked down forever, ill pray to my government every night, ill shout at anyone who wants to ask questrions of our government or disagrees with them, ill spy on my neighbors and report them if i see them trying to leave their house or not having proper social distancing!

Please forgive me!

When your government cheese check shows up in April your wife will be 2/3's of the way to making a great sandwich.

When I'm inevitably bored at home... I want to see if I can make a viral trend for people to give themselves jail tats while they're under house arrest. Things along the lines of "I survived COVID 2020".

Those TikTok dumbasses were eating tide pods, so I have a little confidence I might be able to make something happen.

As a human being, you have the potential to carry and spread the virus.

The only guarnteed solution is to no longer be able to spread the virus.

If there are no humans, then no huams can die of the virus.

perhaps its time true patriots drink that rat posion coffee, unless you are concerned about your rights and want to see sick people die?

I think they are trying to limit the spread of the virus until they can get a vaccine ready.

You're half right, he's too out of shape to carry anything.

I've assigned Gunther (my sad German intern) to get infected for me and do the spreading.

Delegation of authority, the mark of a true leader!

Vaccines wont help those currently infected. And under the best of circumstances would take over a year. And we couldnt be sure the virus wont mutate and be resistant to a vaccine.

Now, at least a five year lockdown is necessary just to be safe we are doing everything we can to stop people from dying of the virus.

Vaccines are flawed thinking since they're not 100% effective. You know what's 100% effective? Lifetime lockdowns.

Think of the positives though.

No really, think of some, because I ****ing can't.

Many people would love a log cabin in the woods, off the grid, just living off the land and by the sweat of your brow.

Others want to be in a cradle to grave socialist dystopia where every choice is made, every penny you encounter is predetermined.

Which is right for you? Now you get to taste some of both. What is there to be upset about?

I agree that this is being used to take away our rights. As will any crisis that lets the government do that. But what are we supposed to do? This virus has the ability to completely shut down health services in this country.

That doesn’t end at just the people catching the virus either, but victims of car accidents, asthma attacks and anyone that needs medical care for any reason. Our healthcare system in this country has been on life support for a long time due to politicians and big pharma whoring it out for their own personal gain every chance they get.

This is why I was ranting so hard against the initial botched response from this administration. If instead of burying their head in the sand hoping to placate the economy they admitted what this was and made testing widespread the initial cases could have been isolated and contained. And we wouldn’t be in the situation we are now talking about shutting down the country and martial law.

Either through sheer incompetence or malice this administration has forced us to the point where they can take more control over everything.

I guess it’s up to you to decide which.

Hey dont worry, ive seen some people on ats talk of the positives of a shutdown.

Trump can finally lock up hillary and comey and all of the other cirminals without panicing people.

We can have a paradigm shift and slow down our lives.

When we are all starving at home, it will bring us closer together with our families.

All of that great stuff, and we get to signal how patriotic we are by ratting out and ridiculing anyone concerned with selfish things like their rights!

I don't think lock downs will solve anything except delay the inevitable even if every citizen became virus free it only takes one person from another country to hop on a plane and the spread will begin again.

The virus is just something we'll have to live with.

Why waste a good crisis when you can create emergency laws with no end date ? , our government have said the laws limiting our freedom could be in place for 2 years , plenty of time for them to be forgotten about , the opposition has called for them to be reviewed every 6 months but there is resistance to that call from the government.

There's no doubt Corona is a bad thing for those who will be susceptible to it but the response to the threat has been muddled and badly thought through , the predictions are based on models provided by experts but a model is only as good as the data put into it and the reality is the infection rate is far higher than the official figure so my guess is the death rate percentage is lower than is believed as more people have had it and recovered from it unseen.

Our leaders are clueless.
