    i mean it is, just a very contagious one. the measured death rate in places that have been testing and reporting real news is well under 1%.

    and if the numbers are cooked this badly, it means the death rate may be even lower than that.

    The Chinese government is going to be the death of us all unless the Chinese people put them down. F*** that commie government.

    Exactly this, but corporations going to China are greedy mfers, they pay Mexican workers low wages but China pays slave wages. Mexican made products have a higher quality standard overall too. For example, anyone who plays guitar knows that Mexican made Fender guitars are very well made guitars, almost a well made as American ones but with slightly inferior electronics, OTOH Chinese Fenders are in general, crap.

    We need to move our companies out of China...these fukks need to be made to pay for the way they tried to coverup this outbreak while countless planes were coming and going out of Wuhan for weeks

    That's pretty much corporatism. The government providing sweetheart deals for US corporations. Thought you guys are supposed to be against that?

    We don't have the "pseudo private" company set up that China has going on.

    Not saying the tariffs are great. What we should be really focusing on is slashing regulations and red tape at home.

    More intelligent than the ones predicting and boasting that Hillary would win. I see humility is not a virtue you value.

    What countries are you even talking about, even in Germany it's at 1% now and that number will continue to climb, like I told you last week.

    South Korea is the most accurate so far, due to how far along they are and it's even at 1.66%

    Not even close to relevant or true even if it was.

    You support Trump so I guess you don't value it either.

    Ha. That's a load of BS. Lucky Jeff deleted everything.

    You're making the jokes and repeating the lines that stupid people laugh at.

    Reminds me of this scene with Hitchens and Bill Maher:

    Why this need to produce most things in other countries? Why don't you want production for the US, within the US?

    If you really care about the climate, how can you argue for a system where general consumer products are shipped around the world using fuel and resources?
    Oh you want to buy a new keyboard or maybe some sperm from a donor in another country? Well we'll let a a shipping company light up jet engines for the purpose of moving your products, just so you can get them a bit quicker.

    What good does it do to "help our companies" if they aren't paying out proper wages for the majority of their workers, but instead has a billionaire owner and high level management that make 100 million+ in their lifetime?
    Is it important that they do well so they can pay more in tax to the government and thereby helping out? Well that's the system we've been operating with in the last 40 years or so, it's horribly broken creating and huge inequality.

    **** globalism, it's time for change.

    Scientists and governments around the world no longer defending China, and claiming the virus was 100% zoonotic. Apparently researchers in China were occasionally sprayed with infected animal blood, including from bats, with only "level 2" protection which I guess isn't sufficient to protect them.

    It's possible reason China tried to cover up this outbreak early on.

    A study by the South China University of Technology concluded that Covid-19 'probably' originated in the Centre for Disease Control although shortly after its publication, the research paper was removed from a social networking site for scientists and researchers.

    Intriguingly, when the wildlife market was closed in January, a report appeared in the Beijing News identifying Huang Yanling, a researcher at the Institute of Virology, as 'patient zero' the first person to be infected.

    You don't seem to grasp the consequences of what you are suggesting.
