300,000 dead and the nation running out of ICU beds with another 100,000 dead by the end of January. :coffee:
It's a good thing that those big evil, capitalist drug companies were able to develop vaccines so quickly. The special committee appointed by Chairman Bernie and his socialist government would still be sitting around with their thumbs up their asses. :-P
Some of them with capitalist funding from the government too! I feel sorry for the rest of the developed world who won’t be seeing vaccines any time soon. Suckers!

Which vaccine would you rather receive? One developed in a country with a capitalist based market or one developed in a country with a government-controlled market such as Russia?

The over reaction to the China Virus will take down America. Plenty of small businesses are already gone for good because of these draconian measures.

The nation isn't running out of ICU beds. HHS has data and it clearly shows we have available beds.

Now what is in question is how many of those ICU beds are COVID and which are other. This is why California says it has 0 ICU capacity, but 1600 ICU beds available.

You and AZ are good guys, but there's the fear porn from the right that tells us covid is going to take down America, mask are a threat to our freedom ex.

Was reading how essentially 40% of business has been transferred from Main street to Wall street and people are betting that 40% will be used to invest in the Opportunity Zones because the taxes will be minimal.

The same zones that have been depressed due to BLM Antifa rioting. Guys like Bezos are going to suck up all the depressed properties on the cheap.

Almost seems planned.

It does. Especially if congress doesn’t effectively bail out the little guy with more PPP, loan and lease deferment, etc.

Less private small business, less freedom, more government dependence, more government overreach....yeah. It’s a great formula for success. Proven world wide.
And more politicians bought off by large corporations.

Is it? I would think that fascism involves corporations kowtowing to the government, not the other way around.

And you know that I believe that ideology is a circle not a straight line and fascism is down near the bottom right next to marxism.

Yep. SG’s post didn’t age well. LA and AZ are both running out of staff and LA is rationing oxygen and care at the street level now. But hey! Open back up! It’s the flu!
