Sorry wxthomson... the above post is not acceptable content.  A: political. B: personally defaming/denigrating.

Refrain from such posts in the future or be banned.

I was commenting on post#211 regarding politics

I find post#211 unacceptable comment

Ahhh... sorry, the garbled quotes made me attribute the poster incorrectly.  I apologize for the error.

@SnowHiker is the guilty party:

Quote
"America sneezes and the rest of the world catches a cold."
that has not been the case for a few years now, as China has stepped up for trade etc in its place (and China is now recovering from this virus and are getting back to work after a 2 month  brutal lock down )
Oh, so that's what you have against Trump!  He's trying to get away from being reliant on the communist regime that you love and look up to!  Now I understand.  If only the US would handle the virus in the same thoroughly competent way China did.  :shock:  :roll:

Well, maybe I still don't fully understand why you have such strong feelings about what Trump is doing or saying as it doesn't affect you.  After all I don't even have a clue about what your president, prime minister, chief, or whatever is doing; or even what his/her/its name is because it really doesn't affect me.  nz sneezes and no one even hears.  :-(

Yes, GOD FORBID we have a civil, intelligent conversation about the most crucial moment in our, our children, and our children's children's lives since October of 1962. :roll: Like it or not, blame is to be reckoned with.

Civil, intelligent conversation is encouraged.  Political speech and personal denigration is not.  Easy to separate out.

Waiukuweather started the political attack on our President.  Taking the MSM talking points and regurgitating its offensive relentless lies and attacks to me and others that believe our president is doing a bang-up job is extremely offensive to those supporting our president. 

Civil, intelligent conversation is encouraged.  Political speech and personal denigration is not.  Easy to separate out.



why is Trump talking about wanting americans to go back to work and scaling back solcial distancing already?

As an 'alien' having seen and heard the gentleman's statements on reliable news media, this seems to be a reasonable question  :?

I was offended and bit my lip because it was a media hate Trump talking point the rest of the world gets fed daily and taken out of context as usual of what was actually being said about the timeline to get the nation moving again. He's our President if he wants parts of the nation to get moving I say great and support his decision.

Just when is it permissible in your esteemed (sorry, got carried away :oops:) view to discuss such things?

Fellow Nebraskans I've been in contact with DHHS about building an interactive map to help follow the spread so we can take extra precaution and they came through.

Fauci said that even if covid-19 subsides with warm weather it will most likely be back next near because the flu season is just beginning in the S. Hemisphere. Hopefully we will have a vaccine by then.

Not criticising the principle at all, but doesn't that tell you where the threat was 5-10 days ago rather than where it is now? One of the problems with viral diseases like COVID is that it's being actively spread before the sufferers realise that they're significantly sick, let alone hospitalised or tested.

It will be a "very well done" to your President, if he can do that in the time period his video interviews indicate he is aiming for.

While the perspective of the link below is clearly about Australia, the global infection information, provided by various countries including the US, is what is causing people to have questions about whether the time frames being aimed for by your President are realistic given the actions and outcomes elsewhere. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-26/coronavirus-covid19-global-spread-data-explained/12089028

P.S. That ABC is the Australian Broadcasting Commission, not the American Broadcasting Company

We need to know what areas the virus is spreading no matter how old the information is so we can be more diligent in preventing spread.  I see no advantage in being blind and having no information at all?

If we don't get the country back to work as soon as possible in a couple of months the news ticker on Fox News won't be a coronavirus update but rather all about food shortages due to supple line disruptions. People think it's bad now just wait until everyone starts getting hungry.

Just because someone doesn't agree with something, or the way it's stated, doesn't make it "xenophobic", "racist", "hateful", or whatever.

the USA now has the most cases of anywhere in the world now
(which means though lots of testing is been done which is good)
(although the chinese data is very suspicious)
deaths numbers are also increasing exponentially too in the USA

I just saw the most mind-blowing stupid 21 year old "women" that licked the toilet seat on an airplane being interviewed on Dr. Phil. Mind....Blowing....Stupid... If that what this generation is bringing to the table the next 30 years, we're doomed as a country. Forget the virus.
