Yep, pays not to see a Government of ONLY A PRESIDENT or Party. How about CALI Leaders ? LOL Seems they need people.

Why isn't there any outrage when Piglosi and her puppet piglets stalled help for several days? Why isn't there outrage when Piglosi and her puppet piglets packed the Coronavirus package with so much pork that had nothing to do with the virus? Why isn't there outrage when Piglosi knew about all this months before doing anything? Because the Democrats that control the media will protect Pelosi from reality. Case in point, this shit poll.

If anything the NEGROES are already spreading this virus due to their lack of simple hygiene skills. The garbage trucks are already picking up the bodies. I heard the NEGROES are going to be rounded up by the National Guard for the safety of the human population. They weren't looking at arenas as hospitals! They're going to be Negro Detention Camps. It's true! My brother's sister's wife heard it from my pharmacist's insurance agent's secretary's physician's assistant. They're going to round the NEGROES up, spread the virus among them, block the exits, and then set the place on fire! Anyone who gets out will be shot! It's true!








I hope.

The $2.2 trillion relief package was a GOP Senate written bill, not a House bill written by Pelosi. There is no outrage at Nancy because she didn't add pork. If you have a problem with any wasteful spending, take it up with Mitch.

Also, Democrats were pushing for action much earlier. Sen. Chris Murphy stated that Trump administration officials declined an offer of early congressional funding assistance that he and other senators made on Feb. 5 during a meeting to discuss the coronavirus.

The officials, including Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, said they “didn’t need emergency funding, that they would be able to handle it within existing appropriations,”

On Feb. 5, Murphy tweeted: “Just left the Administration briefing on Coronavirus. Bottom line: they aren't taking this seriously enough. Notably, no request for ANY emergency funding, which is a big mistake. Local health systems need supplies, training, screening staff etc. And they need it now.”

Trump lied; Americans died. Here's what Diddling Don has to say about the 5000+ dead so far:

April 1: "I have, you know, hundreds of millions of people. Number one on Facebook. Did you know I was number one on Facebook? I mean, I just found out I’m number one on Facebook. I thought that was very nice for whatever it means."

Lamest "spike" ever. Just wait until KCMO logs its 2nd death so the headlines will read: "KCMO Deaths Double overnight"

256 - that's child's play. Pelosi after getting closed door briefings in January purchased 5 million $$ in Amazon stock then told everyone to go to china town hoping for things to get bad enough to do exactly what's happening - close all in person stores..shop online at Amazon suckers...she's making millions every month this goes on.

Ever wonder how career politicians come in broke and leave with 100 million in the bank...I don't.

308 - all bills originate in the house, the senate had an agreement on an earlier package that then had to go back to the house for a vote. After the senate had an agreement, Pelosi returned and said the house would not pass it unless it included all of her sjw wet dream projects unrelated to the virus.

Why does she want mail in ballots so badly anyway...we have done pretty well with in person voting for over 200 years.

This whole thing is tragic because ppl are dying but it is being overblown to orchestrate a power grab.

Making up lies about Nancy doesn't deflect anything.

It only reminds us that 3 GOP senators (Burr NC, Loeffler GA, Inhofe OK) broke insider trading laws to profits on the approaching pandemic While At The Same Time telling constituents that it was all over-hyped and just a hoax to damage Trump. They should be in jail.

Are you freakin stupid or what? Apparently you nevar saw her supposed stimulus package did you? You opened the 1400 pages of b.s. and it said oink oink, no wonder it went no where.

She was responsible for the vote for the stimulus being late to begin with, her excuse? She took an extended vacation while people needed that money as soon as possible. You won’t learn those things from the fake news networks. Expand your mind, look for more information, you’ll see more truth than you might be able to handle.

3:39 bad faith argument.

The bill only technically began in the House as all do but had nothing in it. Mitch took the shell and added hundreds of pages with all the details. He negotiated with the White House and Schmuer.

Introduced in House (01/24/2019)
Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019
"This bill repeals the excise tax on employer-sponsored health care coverage for which there is an excess benefit (high-cost plans). The repeal applies to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2019."

The House had 1 day to debate and pass with no amendments after the Senate finalized it.

3:48 continues the lies. Mitch put the Senate on a 3 day weekend the same day the House passed their 2nd bill, the one previous to the $2.2 trillion one. Even when the Senate got back, it took several days for them to pass it. Mitch and the Senate delayed that bill by a week.

Again the House passed the 3rd virus relief bill written by the Senate within a day without additions.

AND remember a House GOP fucktard held up Nancy's motion for unanimous consent and required a quorum roll call vote.

Stop lying and I'll stop correcting you.

A doctor I know says N95 masks will block a minimum of 95% of coronavirus particles (maybe up to 98% in reality) - and thats why its a standard for doctors. But Trump & Pence have been saying people dont need them for weeks - and it wont keep you from getting sick. Sounds like either the doctor or politicians are lying! I know alot of people who had them lying around their garage or workshops who didnt wear them and now may get sick because of it!

What trump said was only what dr. fauici has been saying:


Should the public wear face masks? Experts are weighing new guidance

By Audrey McNamara

Updated on: April 3, 2020 / 5:53 PM / CBS News

Update: On Friday, April 3, President Trump announced that the CDC now recommends Americans wear a "basic cloth or fabric mask" in public.

As public health officials learn more about the novel coronavirus and how it spreads, some are taking another look at whether healthy people should consider wearing face masks when they go out in public. Since the outbreak began, the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recommended that masks be reserved for medical workers, sick people and their caregivers — not worn by the general public. But differences of opinion are starting to emerge.

The mayors of Los Angeles and New York City now recommend that residents wear homemade masks or scarves over their nose and mouth when they leave their homes.

More in Coronavirus: The Race To Respond

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CNN Tuesday that the issue is currently being discussed by the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

"The idea of getting a much more broad, community-wide use of masks, outside of the health care setting, is under very active discussion at the task force. The CDC group is looking at that very carefully," Fauci said.

In an interview with "CBS Evening News" anchor Norah O'Donnell, Fauci stressed that "the primary people who need masks are the health care providers who are putting themselves in harm's way when they are taking care of someone with a highly contagious disease." Masks also need to be worn by COVID-19 patients to prevent them from infecting others.

But since the CDC says as many as 25% of people infected with the virus don't have any symptoms themselves, but can still spread it, would asking everyone to wear masks in public offer some protection? Fauci cautioned that such a recommendation will be contingent on having an adequate supply.

"One thing you don't want to do is, by recommending that people in the community generally wear masks, is if it takes it away from the people who really need it," Fauci said.

Anonymous said...

Fuck you all, wear a mask or don't wear one is a stupid argument. Wear the damn thing along with gloves and watch people around you. Act like everyone around you is infected and behave in a manner that wouldn't let you get infected. I'm wearing a mask and gloves along with old school shop goggles I have modified with filters over the air openings from a N-95 mask. I have a large bottle that I mix 75% alcohol with 25% water and I spray myself down after being around you infected assholes doing nothing to protect yourself while running around wasting your money on shit you don't need and screaming you need bill protection along with free rent. Buy only food that you need and nothing more.
If you don't like what I do you can kiss my ass because later it's you whose obituary notices I'll be reading.

If Trump would have addressed this in the beginning - we wouldn't have needed to shutdown our economy, watch stocks fall 35% into a bear market, see 10 million unemployment claims over the last 2 week, or pass a $2.2 trillion relief package.

Trump's unique incompetence and failures have cost us dearly.

I think everybody got this one wrong. Yes, it is a terribe situation. Yes, people are suffering. But maybe we can learn some lessons here. Things actually unrelated to the pandemic, like 1) It's important to keep our vital manufacturing and industries in the U.S. 2) That politicians are not the answer. In the end they cannot rescue us 3) Being woke is really, really stupid 4) We are all in this together and 5) We are stronger, more innovative and adaptive, and better than we thought. WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!

The source of "COVID19" is a highly paid Madison Ave. PR firm. Truth be told, it's a run-of-the-mill coronavirus that we've all been exposed to repeatedly. It's a perfect cover for a fake pandemic since a lot of people will test positive for it at any given time given that it's so mild.

The people turning blue and dying are doing so due to 60gHz 5G frequencies borking the covalence of the oxygen molecules their bodies are trying to absorb.

4:48 - I work in a lab with dangerous pathogens. If you wear a 95 mask, the amount of virus amounts you might intake is so very small, and so your immune system could build a resistance to it much easier. Its a race between how fast the tiny amount of virus doubles in your body, and how fast your immune system doubles its response. If your younger you immunity is stronger and you win. However if you get a huge amount of virus sneezed right in your face, and you have no mask - your body will be overwhelmed fast by the huge doubling of virus and its going to be bad case for you. Everyone in a lab, doctors office, med school knows this. Why the President has not expressed this is beyond me. Alot of people have masks that cant be donated to medicine as they are in dusty, dirty or damaged old containers and boxes that have been sitting around years. Maybe they don't meet medical cleanliness standards - but you should use them.

Its hard to compete against the Kardashians! Anyone with 1/2 a brain knows masks protect from illness. If a bit get through the mask, your nose and throat have mucus and small hairs to capture the virus and hold it till its "dead". Unless your a smoker - then that protection is long gone!

Ever notice how those who start their comments talking about how serious this cold should be taken--end by talking about how others are "fear mongering" and panicking. OR vice-versa. This situation is an ideal example of chickenshit culture that has taken over America. Do not take a stand, but speak out of both sides of your mouth, then later you are half-right, and you can site the right half. If you blah-blah about the worst scenario, then you can site that as being accurate when the pessimistic outcomes prove closer to predictions. But if you risk it and tell folks to keep workin and living life close to normal, then the 17% higher death rate (as opposed to 9%)
means you are an irresponsible and genocidal maniac. One schlub wrecks the economy and the entire American way of life, and the other is held responsible for the handful of Americans that were already at deaths door by any act of God. Sound hateful ? The modern idea that death is "the ultimate end" is what drives all the drivelous nonsense about how horrible and unjust it is that anyone should undergo the indignity of death. Funny how those who realize the finality and reality of all life seem to hold life more sacred than those who squeal about how unjust it is that anyone should ever have to die ! The squealing side tells us we should divorce to find our "soulmate" (how's that workin out, fucksticks ?), killing babies is cool-so we don't fuck up our fun while we practice creating more babies that we can kill, mental illness is not a condition of the soul- but a chemical imbalance. All of these ideas come from the pervasive philosophy that this is the only life there is, and that the cards you are dealt are never fair--unless you make 100,0000 a year, and are insured by Blue Cross. Things are surprisingly peaceful out there with this wicked cold that has a lot of people rather thoughtful compared to the mayhem that has gone on in, lets say, 2015.
