  1. You are talking out of your ass, SIFCLF. You are acting far more like Greta Thunberg with your sky is falling chicken little faggot schtick than I am.

  2. WTF, are you going on about, all this time you spend on here posting crap, is time you could be spending digging your bunker, or washing in bleach...not even sure what nut job media site is filling that brain of yours, Guys like you are responsible for all the panic thats going on today, empty stores, etc....over what a virous with maybe a 3.5 % kill rate...shit cancer kills well over 300,000 a year in north America, and no body even blinks...you need to get a grip on your life, and stop spreading fear....before you end up wearing a straight jacket or worse.

  3. I see no point in jockeying back and forth about the quality of the news source. Besides, it is a poll and did not even come from them: And this perception of a partisan divide is one I tend to agree with, for now, I have noticed it in the people around me. I believe the left is far more strung out by the news due to the many recent media outrages they have been bombarded with. They now cannot tell fact from fiction. The UK approach is much much more sensible. Don't shut anything down. If anyone needs to be protected by quarantine, it's the old folks. The rest of us will get the v

  5. There is another level of panic to be breached here, if this sweeps over us like it is in Italy, there's going to be fear in the ranks. That's simply when you have to remember where you come from, the story of your people. At the Second Battle of Ypres, the French colonial troops fled in the face of the gas, the Canadians however, counterattacked and held the line.

  7. The common flu has a kill rate of 1.7 %, but it does not set off massive panic in the financial districts, nor shut down the country, we don't stop going to work, worry about the end is coming....no we stay in bed for a couple days and carry on ,shit ever go to a day care, it's one massive ball of germs, snotty nose kids every where touching everything in site....no body blinks an eye.... what makes this different is all the people that is panicking, buying out entire stores, of what ? in our stores it's junk food was the first to go, pop , chips, chocolate bars... next was toilet paper, pape

  8. And probably never will. This is beginning to look more like a manufactured hoax to me. Nothing is making any sense anymore. Children are supposed to be immune but they are closing down schools. No more golf tournaments yet they play outside. Constant 24 hour news every minute of every day on this so called pandemic. Scare the chit out of people enough, and repeat the danger over and over again, and they will start to believe anything you tell them. We see that with the shortage of toilet paper and bread in stores. If you do not believe in conspiracies well maybe you should start to do so. We

  10. I never even thought about it before, but that's a really good point. If you had some friends that were opening up a competing store you could drag the established guys down and run their names through the mud with a lawsuit like this just to steal business from them.

  11. If you are freaking out scared of the virus, chances are you are a Democrat. Deep partisan divide over coronavirus threat: poll Sixty-eight percent of Democrats said they were concerned that a family member could contract the virus. But that number dropped to 40 percent among Republicans. Nearly eight in 10 Democrats felt the worst was yet to come in coping with the pandemic. That number dropped in half to 40 percent among Republicans. It should be no surprise that dim witted leftists, who demonstrate a high level of gullibility are the main factor causing excessive hype in reac

  12. You just illustrated yet again you do not understand how growth rates of viruses are extrapolated to come up with analysis of future patterns of increase or decrease. It's so bloody stupid what you pass off at this point it's hard not to have and show contempt not pity for you.Your ignorance is based on your inability to read and extrapolate and refusal to. You are provide a classic case of someone who panics and closes his mind to anything that does not reflect back your anxiety. The moderator saysx void the personal attacks but it is very hard to avoid that at times when people panic. Someti

  13. There isn't even any screening on borders! The questionaire - have you been to China, Iran and Italy - is totally outdated! Trudeau is going on "sleep-walk cruise," when decisive speed is definitely needed! Lol. The way they increased the level of "recommending people don't go abroad just a day before March break to a sudden COME HOME NOW! is laughable. They should've issued against any foreign travel weeks ago (when Europe started exhibiting alarming rates)! Their dire screeching, "come home NOW before you get trapped in other countries." had only produced a severely crowded

  15. You see pictures of people in Hong Kong wearing masks in public, and just assume it's effective because Hong Kong response in general has been effective, but correlation does not equal causation, and just because you see people wearing masks, doesn't mean that is the effective measures they are employing. Again if you knew anything about how Hong Kong is handling the virus, you wouldn't attribute their success to the public wearing masks. In fact, you are the only person I see doing that, I've heard no one else even suggest that is the reason why Hong Kong has been successful, aside from yo

  16. Again you're completely ignorant, Hong Kong's success is not because of the reasons you think it is. The public wearing masks is not what is working, you just think it is because you don't what works and fill in the rest with wishful thinking.

  17. I have no respect for people who think this virus is the end of the world, and the governments need to be even more draconian in their measures than they already have been. You might feel safer because of a misguided faith in government intervention to effectively address the issue, but you aren't actually making anyone any safer by holding to that foolish belief. So you can stop pretending to have the moral high ground on army guy, because you don't. He knows far more effective ways to address this situation than you ever will, so in the end his strategy would save far more lives than you

  18. I never said it does absolutely nothing, I said there are infinitely more effective measures, because masks do not prevent the most common ways the virus is transferred. Washing your hands, works better than any mask, not touching your face, works better than any mask, and if you come in contact with the virus and don't get it on your hands and touch your face, a mask will not save you. Stop focusing on masks dude. Masks are for helping to prevent you from spreading the virus to others, they don't not prevent the virus from being spread to you. A better method to prevent from spreading the

  19. No. Wearing masks is ineffective and it makes me laugh that people think they are reducing their chances of infection to any significant degree by wearing them. Wear one if you want, it won't do you any good, washing your hands and not touching your face is infinitely more effective than any mask you can wear. Focusing on the masks is asinine, masks are not the answer.

  20. I think Canada spending more money on personal protective gear, isn't going to have the effect you think it will. I think governments are going way too far to pander to panic monkey's like you, and they aren't saving lives by doing so, they are just virtue signaling to rubes. If you think the government isn't doing enough and they are under-reacting, you're the problem.

  22. WTF there isn't to understand is what I don't get. I've been saying for years we should be taking a hard line against trade with any dictatorship and especially China's. Fortunately we don't need to have leverage over dictators to make a difference. Democracies like ours can and should exert leverage over wealthy investors in our societies that insist on continuing to do business with dictators - we just follow the money like we do when figuring out any other network of terror and stop it in it's tracks. How hard can it be?

  23. 1. You are missing the bidirectional nature of these relationships. US corporations make a great deal of money selling to, selling in and manufacturing in China. They also invest in the US and finance the US government debt. 2. The last trade war was fought to about a draw. They aren't as vulnerable as you would think. 3. Those two sentences kind of contradict. 4. Again the idea that trading is 'being nice' is just wrongheaded.

  24. Fighting is sometimes necessary as a last resort to defend yourself. Pacifism leads to victimization. You can lay down and take it up the butt from the Chinese or you can fight back. Or you can pretend to lay down and be peaceful while others fight to defend you while you maintain the moral high ground. Fuck China.

  26. "Now is the time to declare martial law in Canada. Anyone caught outside their home can be sent to prison for up to 1 year." According to the latest numbers, the people who have recovered from the virus by far outnumber those who have died. And of those who have succumbed to the virus, most had underlying health conditions. There is no need to declare martial law and the idea that someone would be sent to jail for a year should they break any such draconian measure is ludicrous. "If we close all our borders and forced everyone to stay inside their home for 3 weeks, the virus would

  27. At a certain point I think these closures become irresponsible corporate moves. I don't think stores, restaurants, or pubs should be closed except in crisis areas. Pharmacies and grocers must stay open.

  29. Most people who get infected recover. The main issue is protecting the vulnerable and not overwhelming the health care system, such that the vulnerable, if and when infected, can get the care that they need. Flatten the curve, protect and support the vulnerable. I don't think it's helpful for most businesses or government activities to shut down, as they are the supply lines and source of the goods, services, and revenues that prop up the economy and society as a whole. We don't want to kill businesses and create shortages. Perhaps as a short-term fix to flatten the surge and get a better

  30. I agree about the coronavirus we should not be sad nor glad, we should be mad; very mad as hell at the way our health care system and emergency readiness is so totally unprepared. The result of decades of nothing but cut, cut, cut to these services. Meanwhile bureaucratic costs keep going up. There is no limit to that department, it seems. Well, how do you like it now Mr. Trudeau. Things are not looking so pretty anymore. It's always easy to be a leader when there is no big problem, when all is sunshine and smiles. But when there is a problem, that's when real leadership needs to come out

We can make a go of it in virtually every environment we've got and we're pushing deeper and farther into environments that no other species on Earth can even come close to...notwithstanding the one's that hitch a ride on us.

  34. May a gay person through a cream pie in your face. This kind of crap does not belong in court or in a rational world. If someone is that upset about gay people they won't bake them a cake that is pathetic. To call it a win is sad. Being ignorant of others in the name of God is not a win its just ignorance couched as religious views. You really think Jesus would not feed you because you are gay?

Its the invisible boogy man so if you stock up on toilet paper and noodles and sodium glutamate, msg and salt and hide in your home, presto the bogyman will passover. Why don't you also smeer a lamb's blood on your front door while you are at it so your first born won't die. Where do y'all want to go with these threads anyways?

  37. You sound completely ignorant. Where are you getting your information from? The people who lied to you, and said masks have no effect because they wanted to protect the stock market? When I go one step future, and suggest we start making biosuits, people like you call it fear mongering. The only thing causing fear, is doing nothing, and allowing the virus to spread.
