Shocker...no answer!!!
After 9/11 the US sprung into action and invaded two countries.
It seems that when faced with a problem that you can't bomb or invade then you're all out of ideas.
Covid is not a real problem, it's the flu. You have been duped.
Last flu season, 66.4 out of every 100,000 people were hospitalized with the flu in the United States. Compare that to 174.8 out of every 100,000 people who have been hospitalized due to COVID-19 so far, per the CDC.

The case fatality rate (CFR), meaning the proportion of deaths from a disease compared to the total number of people diagnosed with the disease, is about 0.1% for the flu and could be about 0.5% for COVID-19—which is to say its CFR is potentially five times higher than the flu, according to a May 2020 article published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Except season flu has now disappeared. We call it Covid now. :lol:
flu season just started, and isnt over until spring.

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."
The Chinese are filling sports stadiums ...no ones wearing masks

Everything about PROGS is fake. I'm open to a test on that, say something PROGS believe in, anything will do, we'll have some fun with it.
Neat. I see 4-5 guys that are Democrat traditionalists. You've never seen a KKK member personally, nor have I, but PROGS consistently entertain the lowest common denominator.

KKK are the forefathers and protectors for the party of slavery, and nobody other than PROGS seem to care.

Next topic PROGS, name something PROGS believe in was the question. So far all I see is the KKK, compliments dudmuck & Lakhota.

You'd have to have a mind to be able to change one.

If you think a quarter of a million deaths and climbing is acceptable....you're seriously not worth the effort.
If you haven't noticed by now the numbers are cooked.

Again..."Fake Pandemic"?
Dead (no pun intended) serious here: We're now literally existing in two separate universes. There is nothing you can tell them that does not exist in their universe. It would be like someone telling you that New Year's Day is July 27th. It literally does not compute. So, in that world, stories like this are "fake news" and contrived and artificial, because it did not come from their informational universe, their reality. Literally:

That is why I call it the Covid Cult. It is like trying to tell a Christian that Jesus don't exist.

Yeah. But worse, this is across the board. It's a separate, fully functioning ecosystem now.

I don't know how a nation is supposed to effectively function in this condition.

For what it's worth ... I have never been hysterical over COVID.

I have refused to participate in the game any more than is necessary.

I still go to work every day. I still do most of the things I did before.

I still haven't caught the flu.

Fair enough.
So why is there a big memorial every year for the victims of 9/11?
If 280,000 deaths and counting is "no big deal" why even bother to mention a paltry 3,500?
Why is accepting deception from the media no big deal ?

Look around....are people in your life dropping like flies? NO

You have been on target on covid from the get go....I was slow to see the truth and fell into the media's trap....but soon was able to see the truth about covid....
Again..."Fake Pandemic"?
Sorry...but this pandemic is just another fraud created by the leftist media.
The result of the election clearly illustrates the reasons for it.
Yes....there's a virus going around....but there's been viruses going around for years and the MSM never made that much of it.
I remember the time they tried turning Ebola into a massive pandemic and Obama told them to cool it.....and they did.
