While I don't have a problem with Rogan, he's just doing what everyone else is. Trying to monetize the situation and he's just adding to the fear of what equates to a flu. Instead of shutting the NBA down, etc. just shut down ANY news related TV. Only sitcoms and series are able to be on air. Social media is shut down. See how fast this bull shit goes away and people lead normal lives....

Six months to one year I believe we will be back to normal. 10x the lethality of the flu, but affecting age groups differently. Elderly and pre-existing conditions the same, but kids seem to be less affected by corona.

A lot remains unknown, but things will get worse before it gets better. One thing is for sure - social media, internet “news” and infrastructure to spread information and disinformation is more established than during the SARS and even H1N1 outbreaks.

There will be ramifications regarding off-shoring global supply chains which will be good. But it is clear that if you control the media, you can manipulate the sheeple more than ever today. That is scary.

The evidence is in its infancy at this point. Most 1st world countries now know what this does to the body and can prepare for that and death rates will plummet. China is a shit hole in most places and medical care is garbage. I think this fizzles out quicker than 6 months.

Either way, the reaction so far has likely killed more people than it has benefited by not contracting CV. Media is more toxic than a fucking virus at this point....

The media is definitely full of shit in constantly trying to blame Trump for what is basically an act of God.

But the disease is real, and spreading exponentially as we sit here. You can check out a dozen foreign news sites and see it even in foreign languages. There is no way a global conspiracy could be that well coordinated between countries which don't even like each other.

Even if most people will be fine, the health care system is about to get crushed just by the small % of people who do get severely ill. So the thing to do now is slow the spread as much as possible, and maybe even get the transmission rate below 1 (so that each infected person infects fewer than one other on average). Then the disease will die out.

I was wrong about that, except for New York.

The health care system didn't even get remotely close to getting crushed. In fact, most hospitals are now in dire financial condition due to lack of patients.

Let's all find a way how to blame Trump for it!

So didn't they technically get crushed? lol.

Did NYC even get hit that hard with regard to hospitals? Like Hollywood style chaos like they'd put in a movie or tv show, triage type shit, or was it just "busy" so to speak? That Navy medical ship was there for what, 2 weeks and barely saw anyone?

I'm still convinced the death count from the actual virus is grossly over estimated.

Not even during the “surge” was there ever a lack of hospital beds, staff or therapeutics. Maybe a shortage of PPE in some places, but that was why elective procedures were discontinued, to conserve PPE for those “on the front lines”.

The quotations above illustrate how the narrative is defining “the new normal.” Will the next shoe to drop be mandatory ___________ followed by involuntary relocation for dissenting people, parents and workers? Why do we need “contact tracers” when those efforts are only potentially effective in the early stages of an outbreak? We are beyond contact tracing when we have community spread in nearly every county and every larger town in the country! This reeks of Stasi like totalitarianism and silencing of dissidents by any means necessary. But don’t say it out loud, they will put you on the list. You don’t want to be on their list. When the state comes to your door to contact trace and offer injections will you have a choice? When they pull you over to check for your papers or scan for evidence of vaccines will you be approved for travel or detained?

Think it can’t happen? Well, can you imagine a world where small businesses and beaches are closed but airlines and crowded Costco’s are open? Can you imagine a world at “war” with a virus in which nurses and doctors are furloughed? Do the math, it has already happened.

Control what people think and you control them. It seems now they are just bold enough to call propaganda “journalism.”

I'm afraid we're already on lists. We have already heard about "dissidents" that have been attacked by law enforcement, child protection, and business licensing, for violating the shutdown orders in order to make money and feed their family. While Walmart, full of Chinese crap, is making record profits.

Sorry for bumping the fat guy face. Someone should mark it not safe for work.

Lol, someone did. I don't think it's that offensive, but OK.

Say, Patrick, why is this asswipe editing my post? Since when does censorship become part of patnet?
