  • If you can't make stuff up to complain about, the right will automatically lose 90% of their content, though. They need SOMETHING to stoke their hate/fear/paranoia, or else they'd have to live in the real world and try to make an effort to make it work.

  • Any other watchers of this from England? doesn’t this feel like just what’s happening here? outsourcing testing to private companies? throwing the scientists under the bus for their own incompetence of how the pandemic had gotten out of control? aside from Boris being supposedly intelligent, are our two countries that different? how did we get to this point? 😔 also; Seth your John Kennedy segment cracked me up 😂 who would even enforce a mandatory mask in the shower? 😂

    • @John Doe Media shills like the WHO? Ok boomer. And if the science is "non-existent" how would any real doctors (who contribute, advise, and work with the WHO) have any different information? The point is Rand Paul was in a more severe risk group and is being cavalier about opening, which could put his life at significant risk, but what do I know, I've only worked in healthcare for the last six years and counting.

If the only reason Robert A. Heinlein is remembered for is that p.o.s. movie? He must be spinning in his grave.

  • No one is allowed to die from Coronavirus. Don't worry about the economy, nobody dies from poverty. Shut it down! Everybody shelter-in-place. Hide Hide Hide! The nanny state says so, in the name of the law! No one think of liberty, in that if You are scared of Coronavirus, than You hide, But let me have the freedom to make my own decisions. No No No! The nanny state has made the decision for you! I'm so angry I'm going to vote for the dangerous idiot in the White House. Nobody talk about common sense approaches such as locking down county-by-county based on how busy the hospitals are. Nobody talk about bailout money to pay our restaurants to prepare bulk item foods and distributed to the hungry. No this is America and we have to wave our red white and blue in an all hands on deck effort to get crazy and overreact. Lock it all down, it's a party! Now let's all watch the news and see the big freak out show.
