You're absolutely obsessed with Trump! How many hours a day do you spend thinking about him, CM?

Sadly, it's difficult to escape the dominance of US media on Canadian society. Everywhere you turn - there he is... like that evil clown from the Stephen King film.

Odd that you would be calling me out for a supposed obsession in a thread that is specifically relevant to the US government's (in)actions on a global crisis, and one that has repercussions for its closest neighbour - us.

But hey, feel free to deflect and distract. It's par for the course in here....

Hello, Bigot.

MotherCorpse? Seriously? And an NPR poll?

You funny guy, CM.

So you have issues with a group of voters believing their president? Fine.

Funny you never mentioned this undying loyalty when Jug Ears was in office. Progs ate his **** up like it was their last supper, licked the bowl clean and came looking for more!

And, considering that about half the country are Republican voters, it's something more than just the lunatic fringe like the quote implies. "[I]n contrast to the overall public." <snort> What a crock of ****!! Bias, much?

But hey, it's that ol' taxpayer funded "fair & balanced" reporting we've come to love & respect. A billion and a half bucks a year buys a lot of brand loyalty!

Hello, Bigot.

Whose inaction?

You wanna talk inaction, let's start with the Chinese, who covered up the presence of the virus for weeks. Then let's talk PM Hemorrhoid Blackface, who is still allowing planes from China (among other "hot" areas) to land on Canadian soil, with no screening of passengers to speak of. Oh, I know: The "thigns". Who is still allowing the run of possibly infected illegal aliens down Roxham Road. Who, until a couple days ago, said that the "science" didn't support closures. Well, the "science" hasn't changed, yet here he is, suddenly & allegedly on board, only a few weeks late.

Who d'ya s'pose called him and told him to pull his ever-loving Prog head out of his ass?

Trudles' response to this entire mess has been one of the slowest & worst on the planet & you're levelling criticism at Trump?

HA!!!

I'd take Trump's response in a heartbeat. At least he's not hiding under a goddamn bed for two weeks...

Well, you see FeXL, CM doesn't like Trudeau either--but he only wants to talk about Trump.

What was the challenge presented by WWII? The countries that fired back?

It's just so much bullshit.

So The Bigot doesn't like Trump. Fine. I get it. I didn't like Jug Ears, myself.

But put aside the TDS and apportion blame (or credit) where it's due, partisan or not. The Chi-Coms, Blackface McGroper, Iran, Italy: all of these have done a far worse job dealing with the virus than Trump has.

For someone who claims to be a scholar, he's certainly not scholarly in his analysis, whether offering praise or criticism.

Comments hilarious.

Food Distribution Network Under Stress

Quote:
As anticipated…. stores start next phase of tighter hours of operation because fulfillment cannot meet demand. https://t.co/v1FfqhuX26

— TheLastRefuge (@TheLastRefuge2) March 18, 2020
Detail here;
The Inversion – Big chain markets; those who spent millions developing their own proprietary ‘just-in-time’ distribution networks and automated ordering systems; are currently the least equipped to deal with the level of demand. Meanwhile smaller chains, or mom-and-pops, who rely on third-party brokered distribution are faster to respond.

Several factors have increased retail market demand for food products and non-perishables. People stocking up, kids out of school, some panic shopping (example toilet paper) and now curfews/quarantines have people purchasing more for ‘meals prepared at home’. Add in a level of closed restaurants and the demand on retail food markets is severely stressed.

In major urban areas the larger retailers are unable to keep up with demand. This is creating an outward spread as people drive further and further distances to find their needs. Those who travel a distance ultimately stock-up more; thus the outward spider web-cycle is created. Based on ground reports Atlanta Georgia is a prime example.
Wuhan Flu II

Quote:
A bit of good news.
Medical authorities in China have said a drug used in Japan to treat new strains of influenza appeared to be effective in coronavirus patients, Japanese media said on Wednesday.

Zhang Xinmin, an official at China’s science and technology ministry, said favipiravir, developed by a subsidiary of Fujifilm, had produced encouraging outcomes in clinical trials in Wuhan and Shenzhen involving 340 patients.

“It has a high degree of safety and is clearly effective in treatment,” Zhang told reporters on Tuesday.

Patients who were given the medicine in Shenzhen turned negative for the virus after a median of four days after becoming positive, compared with a median of 11 days for those who were not treated with the drug, public broadcaster NHK said.

In addition, X-rays confirmed improvements in lung condition in about 91% of the patients who were treated with favipiravir, compared to 62% or those without the drug.

Fujifilm Toyama Chemical, which developed the drug – also known as Avigan – in 2014, has declined to comment on the claims.
It’s not effective in advanced cases, but antivirals that help moderately sick people from getting worse is progress.

Good catch. Maybe it was just lost in translation, but she should probably avoid comparing things to world war two. Nobody else wants Germans to be inspired by their common and united action during the war.
