How could we screw this up this bad. Instead of making America great, the powers that be have made us into weaklings. We had advance notice but somehow we are handling it worse then Italy and other European countries. Why is South Korea so much better then us at handling this? They have 229 deaths in a country of 51 million. If we want to get in control of this why not just copy the South Korean model. There are no excuses for this colossal failure and while there is plenty of blame to go around the fact is our president is the biggest failure in this country right now and he needs to get out of office before he ends up letting more people die. If not, he needs his feet to the fire to actually implement a system that works meaning step aside and let the experts make the decisions.

1) Look up the numbers
2) Compare to total population
3) Learn the Laws of Ratios and Proportions
4) Use your newfound knowledge.
And you would be ...
Denying your own ignorance.
And saving me from from having to do so.

ok do you understand basic math? I do.
Sout Korea population: 51 million
deaths: 229
USA population: 328 million
deaths: 34386 ( includes 2400 deaths in the last 24 hours)
Do I really need to do the math for you?
Wake up you are the ignorant one with all due respect

Wasn't Trump getting impeached or something by the Ds?


Meanwhile he was putting travel bans in place?


If anything, blind, ignorant and plain stupid partisanship caused what is taking place.

Experts are suspect to corruption and promoting agendas, Just like any human, Their $hit stinks too. I’d trust a president who has check and balances built in to his decisions and has a lot more riding on the line than just a career. These experts may or may not care about you and your well being and be only int in driving an agenda that make them look good an make money or retain power. Worse no one has to hold their feet to the fire.

So , you do not seem to be up on US news or math , either.
All deaths are being chalked up to COVID 19....
It aint me that is the one that needs to "wake up"
And , please get caught up before you reply again.

So why does South Korea have 30 times fewer deaths then us and their economy is in better shape. I know you guys want to stick up for your man but at some point you gotta realize that he is actually the one most responsible for this mess and maybe you oughtta jump off the bandwagon. How about we give Pence a shot with the 25th amendment. Sorry to say but he is gonna destroy this country economically if republicans can't get their sh** together and drop support. a reply to: JinMI

Why are we not handling it better like Europe? (Population of UK, France, Spain, and Italy 2/3 US population but nearly 50% more deaths.)

Let's do what S. Korea did. (Not in Eurpoe.)

Why are there zero cases on the moon? (Never hurts to ask.)

Potato. (Only Biden can pull us out of this mess, right OP?)

Trump did the right thing. He's letting the States and governor's succeed or fail on their own. It's not the governments job to stop this. But to empower the states to do so.

That's strange. It seems like only yesterday that Trump was claiming he had absolute power.......

Projections look like we are going to be worse then Europe but yes i agree let's do like South Korea. We do not know how Biden would handle this but I would say prolly a lot better. S Korea solved this by testing. I really do not buy the argument that the wealthiest country in the world could not have gotten on top of this by testing everyone. However many billions or even trillions it would cost I am sure it is cheaper then shutting down the economy and Yes Trump should have been on top of this and been getting ready to mass produce tests a couple months ago. a reply to: Ksihkehe

Population size and density.

Any more brain busters?

So the governors should have seen the intelligence reports and made preparations back in February by beginning to implement mass testing. Sound more like a job for the Feds. a reply to: JAY1980
