    Yea, and if apply their policies that exponentially increase risk of death to a country with 32k deaths what happens?
    The housing market sees a solid correction ? Suddenly social security and Medicare funding become easier? I fail to see the downside here, at least as it compares to 30 million people being unemployed and the inevitable riots in the streets if this continues for too long.

    People die either way, and you’re not preventing that by rewatching Stranger Things in your pajamas with your boyfriend, all you’re doing is shifting the casualties to a different demographic.

      To clarify: He means 1300 people in a country of over 10 million, with most of them being elderly or people with serious medical issues that were on their way out anyway.

      What. A fucking. CATASTROPHE!!!
      Like I said the corona virus is a great opportunity to get rid of sick old people who soak up medicare and social security by living sicklier and longer. But I was shut down for being heartless because it was killing Trump voters.

        The boomers are definitely going out kicking and screaming. I shouldn’t be surprised, really.

          I’ll report in on the rioting when it begins. If it happens I live 4 blocks from city hall in 6th biggest city in the country, so I’ll have a prime view of it. Yet to see any signs of one.

          And I agree it can’t continue for too long. That’s the one point you’re making that makes a semblance of sense.

            Let me correct you, because it’s not beautiful, it’s painful. It’s painful because if I’m right, not only will no one ever know or acknowledge that I am, but my life will be objectively worse for it. If I’m wrong, well, nothing really changes. This disease comes and goes the same as every other disease in human history, and it’ll be just another minor footnote in everyone’s lives. I’m glad you used the word perplexing though, because that’s a good way to describe how consistently people fall in line with propaganda.

            Oh, and since both you and dacat have decided to go down this road of calling me out based on my location, that isn’t applicable in my case. The company I work for operates out of the DC area and that’s where the vast majority of our customers are, which gives me some insight into what’s going on there. The hospitals in your area aren’t flooded with patients, in case you were curious.

            I’ve given up trying to understand Trump, so you’ll have to ask someone else.
            I wasn’t trying to call you out. Honestly. You referenced your libertarian-type friends the other day... I was more going off of that.

            I honestly think you may be a bit far into the conspiracy wing of this thing. It’s not that your points are 100% invalid or poorly thought out. It’s just that, this would be the most massive conspiracy ever created. But... let’s flesh it out.

            So, the virus hits China. It hits with a vengeance. China goes to extraordinary lengths to cover it up. On that, I think we’re on the same page. As I’ve told you, my friend was telling me about the sheer scope of China’s fuckery a month ago. So, that we’re now seeing a clearer picture of that does not surprise me.

            Okay... next. I’m assuming that you’re thinking that some invisible plutocracy shadow force decided that this was the time to put their plan in place. Okay, I guess if I was part of this shadow world government, this would be a perfect opportunity to test the pliability of the world population. Will they be mollified by stimulus checks? Will they unquestioningly do as they’re told if we create significant fear?

            Now, here’s where I’m a bit lost as to what their actual goal is. Is it simply an experiment to see what level of control people are willing to accept? It’s certainly giving would-be dictators around the globe the notion that this is the time to expand their powers. Take Putin. Or, staying a bit closer to home, take Trump, who recently mused about disbanding congress.

            Okay. That’s all I got for now.

              People who loaded up on guns now feel as foolish as people who loaded up on toilet paper. If rioting breaks out - Im going to put coughing sounds on a tape-loop and blare it out my window. People will stay the fuck away from me.

                    I don’t know what “the plan” is or if there even is one. All I’m doing is pointing out the very clear and obvious pattern that we’ve seen over the course of our lives: More control and less freedom for increasingly stupid and questionable reasons. This shit isn’t over in a few months either. Mark my words, this is going to happen again, and again, and again as society slowly transforms into a quasi-socialist state in permanent lockdown. And you know what? I won’t even be surprised if they manage to convince people it’s the best thing that ever happen.

                        I’ve gotten plenty actually. All of the stormtroopers are camped out at the local grocery stores, so I can basically do whatever I want.

                              • The Hookems theory of the medical community exaggerating the virus is quite possibly one of the dumbest conspiracy theories I've ever heard. and we've been on this board like 15 years now.

                                Yes, millions of medical personnel, many of whom are risking their lives daily, made a massive conspiracy across hundreds of countries.

                                Go for a run or something, brother.
