    I have to question the wisdom of the Trumpster's tweet.

    'The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus. We will be stronger than ever before!'

    Trump angers Beijing with 'Chinese virus' tweet

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-51928011

    All of the dangerous pandemic viruses always originate in China so calling it the 'Chinese Virus' does not really distinguish it from all the previous viruses.

    They don't, actually, but you've bought into the Trumpian rhetoric?

    The president of the United States is more concerned with his own image than the coronavirus pandemic:



    As if the lies and misinformation he has already spread wasn't enough.

    He's a fucking disgrace.

    That doesn't work as an analogy because it's Trumps' constant lies that are coming home to roost.

    This is the first crisis of his administration that isn't a self-inflicted foot shot and he has handled it exactly as an incompetent conman can be expected to.

    Republicans Adopt Andrew Yangs Cause. He Isn't Celebrating.

    Andrew Yang takes no pleasure in looking prophetical.

    The tech entrepreneur and former candidate for president, who last month suspended his campaign after poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, built his candidacy around the idea of universal basic income — that Americans should receive $1,000 each month from the government. The proposal was not so much panned as it was ignored, with many in the political class refusing to entertain such a radical notion during the Democratic presidential primary. All the while, Yang built a cult following with his case that a “Freedom Dividend,” as he called it, was the only way to protect millions of individuals, as well as the broader economy, from fiscal ruin in the face of spiraling unemployment due to advances in automated technology.

    That particular day of reckoning has yet to arrive. But an equally dire set of circumstances — playing out in a more compressed time frame — is set to vindicate Yang’s argument for putting cash straight into the pockets of millions of Americans.

    In response to the economic threat posed by the spread of COVID-19, the highly contagious virus that has emptied out hundreds of thousands of schools and businesses virtually overnight, the Trump administration on Tuesday announced its intention to mail checks to Americans as quickly as possible. Consensus has formed at warp speed that this is the most effective way to help suddenly cash-strapped people pay their bills and keep the economy afloat. The specifics remain unclear, but Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he was conferring with members of Congress, and that the amount of money could exceed the $1,000 being floated on Capitol Hill.

    All of which put Yang at the center of attention. “My phone is blowing up,” he tweeted shortly after the White House briefing, an observation that has won 56,000 likes and counting. For all the congratulatory notes, however, Yang is deeply unsettled about the current crisis, no matter the role it might play in advancing his signature issue. “This whole thing is so fucked up,” he said.

    I spoke with Yang on Tuesday afternoon about the administration’s response to COVID-19, his sudden re-emergence into the spotlight, and why he now expects a debate about universal basic income this November. Our conversation has been edited for length and clarity.

    Read the rest here...

    So the media has been crying wolf for over 2 months over the Coronavirus urgency ,and your cult leader
    buried his head in the sand, putting thousands of your fellow citizens at greater risk of falling off the perch
    before their time.

    Carry on Eddie,and keep drinking his snake oil , I’m sure it will keep the virus at bay.

    I had something nasty, high temperature , sore throat, runny nose.
    One of the first cases in UK was in nearby York.
    I wasn't tested, I don't trust the authorities.
    I caught it early got in bed and raised my temperature even more to burn it off for a few hours(not sure how safe that is, but that's how I deal with these things)
    You do get immunity, at least untill the virus mutates beyond a certain point, which would take a long time.
