Nicely done.
No, this is your parties/President that you fully support entire political strategy. You love these games.

It's obvious why you don't use a Spock meme. Way too intelligent for the Trumpsters.

I'm laughing my azz off. No doubt. Especially when someone doesn't know that I volunteered to lobby for increasing funding for the CDC and the NIH on my own dime and did the same for Diabetes Funding initiatives accuses me of being the worst there is to offer.

What you and he demonstrate that you will attack anyone that disagrees with you. And please, I stopped responding to you for weeks and you are the one jumping in on me. Just as SumBMWGuy does AFTER he said that he wouldn't talk to me. Does this even make sense? I bet it does in your worldview.

You guys are spectacularly and consistently ugly towards me when I don't address you. Why is that?

Each time I read your posts and many other posts here by liberal members, it further cements the fact that you guys live in Bizzaro Land.

Edit. You liked the post where he told me to shut up (Cancel Culture on display) and called me a pejorative name. Nicely done.

You always move the goalposts/bring up different topics that weren't even being discussed and then contradict yourself. I was talking about other things than policy and just your general demeanor. Any way. since you brought up, you volunteer for that, but support a President/party that has gutted health care and the CDC in their last three years while in power. How much sense does that make?

Then you play the victim and when your own posts are consistently ugly towards us and everyone else that disagrees with you? Umm what about accusing others of doing things etc?

Like I said, you got it all the strategies down................

Wow. You missed the point entirely. Let me make the link for you.

He brought up lobbying. Said I was the worst on offer. I informed that I volunteered lobbying for funding for the CDC, NIH, AND Diabetes Initiatives. This isn't moving the goal posts...it's refuting his insane statement with FACTS.

Please show me the posts where I was ugly towards him without, first, responding to ugliness. I will wait.

And on the "Accusing others of what you do"...it is accurate. Please go back and do the research. He said he'd leave me completely alone. Has he? Have you?

We both know the answer to that.

There is plenty my of hypocrisy and obfuscation to go around this entire board.

Again, why would you volunteer to that and then support a political party/President that has gutted the health care system/CDC in the last three years. Not only that, but remain quite about the very short sighted moves that have been made by them?

Get your facts straight:
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-cut-cdc-budget/
https://thehill.com/homenews/media/4...e-on-trump-cdc
https://apnews.com/d36d6c4de29f4d04beda3db00cb46104

The CDC has shown itself incompetent : The have totally dropped the ball on testing kits. Trump is rightly concerned that much of the CDC is made up of people that can't get the job done. many of them were hired by OBama.

But don't let facts get in the way of your TDS

Again, if you actually read other posters links, this isn't solely about CDC funding. But, since you never will there isn't much point in continuing the discussion with you.

And you addressed nothing I said but I will address what you posit in this post.

Our government is a bloated broken bureaucracy which scarcely knows which hand is doing what. There is a need to change. Bigger government isn't always better government.

Shrink it all. Employ more and better efficiencies. Do more with less.

I asked specific questions. Specific questions for a reason. Why can't people answer specific questions? (That's rhetorical.)

No immunity for you. Next!

"A growing number of discharged coronavirus patients in China and elsewhere are testing positive after recovering, sometimes weeks after being allowed to leave the hospital, which could make the epidemic harder to eradicate.

On Wednesday, the Osaka prefectural government in Japan said a woman working as a tour-bus guide had tested positive for the coronavirus for a second time. This followed reports in China that discharged patients throughout the country were testing positive after their release from the hospital."

I'm leaning towards she has deactivated wuhan flu virus in her body still and show up to the hospital because she got the real flu. The recent study on the wuhan flu show it pretty stable diease and not prone to mutation.

Unless the aids claim way back ends up being true and you never really are able to get rid of it.

A couple interesting articles-- one about the infection rates in layman's terms, and the other is about the legalities of quarantine, cities trying to stop infected people coming in to quarantine, etc.

Both are worth reading:

Concerning. Taking the family to Spain, Italy, and France in May. Might have to skip the Italy portion.
