EXAMPLE OF Dem fearmongering hoaxes:

50 million Americans are going to die,
Millions will die if they attend Easter church services.
Stay at home lockdowns will prevent you from catching the virus.
Coronavirus will peak in ________ Fill in the blank.
.... Just to name a few.
All your examples of “Dem fearmongering hoaxes” besides “50 million Americans are going to die”—something bout one has said—are things scientists are telling us.

I hope you are being facetious but I fear you might be on to something. The more we let these tin pot authoritarian lefties gain power, the more likely that scenario becomes. And you can bet the lefties on here will be goosestepping and saluting the "green new," well, dystopia...
Capitalism. You asked for it.

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.

Yes, I am asking for it, but we just keep moving away from it and toward your economic ideology. It isn't a coincidence that this is, well, coincident, with our long national decline...

No, both are symptoms of primitive ways needing to be replaced by better ways.

I think it will be very difficult for the governments to back off of their authoritarian efforts to contain the Wuhan Virus. Who will be the first to suggest easing up and having a resurgence of the disease blow up in their face? This is precisely the kind of government ineptitude, like FDR's disastrous agenda that prolonged the Great Depression because he couldn't (or wouldn't) admit that his errors were causing the recovery to be delayed, that turns a bad situation into an epic mess? What do you all think - does government "got this" and all will work out well in a few weeks? Or will this drag on month after month after month, doing irreparable damage to the economy (and our social construct), and result in another Great Depression level economic downturn?
10. Russia to the rescue!
9. We get Scaramucci to handle it.
8. Trump takes gold fillings from bodies of Coronavirus victims to make a memorial statue of himself wearing a Coronavirus-shaped crown.
7. A terrorist attack at the big party when the restrictions are lifted.
6. Millions dying of Coronavirus.
5. Tens of millions dying of Coronavirus.
4. Dictator-for-life Trump.
3. Pence becomes leader of opposition.
2. Soylent green is people!
1. We make America great again!

It's not what he did, it's why he did it.
It's not what he did, it's why he did it.
He issued the order to prevent entrepreneurs from hoarding gold.
What's wrong with that?:cool:


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_6102#Rationale

"The main rationale behind the order was actually to remove the constraint on the Federal Reserve which prevented it from increasing the money supply during the depression; the Federal Reserve Act (1913) required 40% gold backing of Federal Reserve Notes issued.

"By the late 1920s, the Federal Reserve had almost hit the limit of allowable credit (in the form of Federal Reserve demand notes) that could be backed by the gold in its possession (see Great Depression)."

Well, eventually the expansion of the universe will slow, then cease altogether. Then eventually it will contract, all the way back to a single startign point, and probably begin again with another 'big bang'.

Oh wait, you meant the current Chinese Virus situation.

Never mind.

"A recent analysis from the University of Pennsylvania estimated that even if social-distancing measures can reduce infection rates by 95 percent, 960,000 Americans will still need intensive care.

"There are only about 180,000 ventilators in the U.S. and, more pertinently, only enough respiratory therapists and critical-care staff to safely look after 100,000 ventilated patients.

"Abandoning social distancing would be foolish.

"Abandoning it now, when tests and protective equipment are still scarce, would be catastrophic.

People abandon capitalist institutions because they fail to work. This Coronavirus pandemic for example has laid bare the failure of the capitalist market and the capitalist state.
Karl was right.

"The Marxist argument that it’s the labour of workers, and not the supposed intelligence and entrepreneurial spirit of bosses, that keeps society running, has long been ridiculed by defenders of capitalism.

"In the conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the truth of Marx’s claim has been brought into sharp relief."
