    Die Hard is not a Christmas Movie
    Most (but not all) James Bond movies are over-hyped

    If fried crickets are #1 ... boiled Silk Worms are #2

    And well he might have a point, so let's trigger some otherwise stable posters by playing devil's advocate with two understandings; a) if disinfectant or a form of light does turn out to be useful, it was not Trump's idea; and b) not because it is Trump but because it was not his idea, it was put in his head by someone else, period!

    And it doesn't really matter, does it, because if the longshot pays off and it turns out that disinfectant (or light) does play a part either in the cure or easing of symptoms, those full of joy will ridicule Trump for suggesting that we get rid of the virus by hitting it with light. And vice versa. That's how it works, and I sometimes wonder how much truth there is in the line that if Trump discovers a cure for cancer the headlines would read, "Trump fails to cure heart disease."

    Not sure how many monitors are cracked yet, but let's see what else the devil might wish to share.

    In a critical situation like this with major facilities devoted to research, it hurts none and is right to look at everything that doctors and advisers put on the table as a potential aid, and during this historic briefing Trump made references to an obvious discussion that had taken place earlier with the doctor/s.

    Iow, it was not Trump that woke up that morning to decide that everyone should drink Lysol or bathe in UV, but his advisers that initiated the thoughts which he either misunderstood or failed to convey accurately and ended up fumbling, which tbf is common enough.

    Meanwhile, how ridiculous is to suggest that some research facility is, or even before that disastrous briefing was looking at the potential positive properties of disinfectant and certain types of light?

    There ya go, early enough to light some fuses?

    Lockdown still on?

    Just your usual garbled nonsense.

    Who are these people you are masterfully winding up, again?

    I agree with jabir.

    Please, jabir, conduct some self administered internal cleansing to prove all the Trump haters wrong, once and for all!

    As they say, I'm generalizing but as usual when I generalize, I don't care.

    That hurt more than sqwiril's snipes, which I'm sure nobody takes seriously. Well, maybe he does.

    I'm not a Trump 'lover', but comparing the two candidates, had the Dems come up with anyone that could be trusted to do a good job and without backed up scandals, against Trump and his history they would have had my support. In plain English, for me, Trump was a crap choice by the GOP but better than Clinton, and now the office deserves respect if not the person. Also ftr imo, the Dems learned absolutely nothing from that outcome, and I'm intrigued to see who they will blame this time, when Biden goes splosh! And if they still refuse to learn anything, America is in danger of having a hard core evangelist as its next Potus.

    Much the same in the UK, had Corbyn been put out to stud before the election, against Bojo whom I never did like except as an entertainer and trust even less as PM, I would have tagged along with almost any decent candidate. The Tories were so unpopular in those times, that only a nut like Corbyn could have lost to them.

    In both elections, it's shameful that a nation's future is shaped by egos.

    Well funded and positioned 'experts" tend to be rewarded, whoever is "elected".

    If Clinton had won, it would just be a less entertaining version of what's going on now essentially. Fox and Breitbart would still be railing against illegals and homos getting married, 2nd Amendment this and that blah blah blah. No movement on universal healthcare, because that half-assed attempt called Obamacare would be strengthened and making people miserable. Maybe a few more gun laws. We'd still have police brutality, endless war, corporate malfeasance and tax dodging, a phony wealth stock market, etc.

    Nothing will really change until, a) A Great Depression style destruction of the current system and, b) getting money out of politics. One is more likely to happen sooner than the other IMO.

    It hasn't quite caught on yet, the peasantry are still hooked on Russiagate, BLM, trying to figure how to cover for top leftists involved in the Epstein saga while blasting any conservative names that crop up, and positing Biden as the new saviour; but in time, after the demented have a breather, Obamacare will be restored as the Act that would have saved many lives if not for Trump messing with it.

    And imho, seeing that's the thread title, we're not far from Great Depression vII, just one major economy falters and it could all go pop; if anyone's taking bets, I'll have a tosheroon on EU, make that ew.
