The Universe can be a very ironic place
I am sure that Iaura ingraham will now definitely get Covid19. And too , the Universe does not like be mocked with INCORRECT information—so no doubt the Fox team wiII
be found to be sickIy soon. How sad FOX to go from "Ridded with Iies, " to being ridded with virus! " : (

Foxing with the facts

I seriously enjoy the EU’s response to Rupert Murdoch’s Fox ‘news’ by not allowing them to put ‘News’ after their name as the station is by definition the epitome of a nasty vicious propaganda outlet.

I’m still waiting for the entire building in DC to come down sick. You know, that big white house built by black slave labor?

What is honestly a bit shocking is that it hasn’t happened yet but then some people actually do win at casino gambling most of the time, but the odds still favor the house…and looking at the orange golden-spoon-out-of-every-orifice in his body inherited wealth frat boy, I can’t see him surviving a severe case. Pence probably would but robots don’t get sick now do they?

Hi SeaIintheSeIkirks:
ROBOTS ! The irony is that both Trump and Pence seem so inhuman—so very often. They can be deprogramed , possibly Iike HaI in the wonderful oid space movie-- 2001 I forget the name of the main actor on the ship---- But I remember HaI : )

Nah, I’m more in favor of Asimov’s robot sci-fi series because HIS robots had built-in ethics!!!

Ain’t a-gonna see any of that any time soon in this bunch, eh stardustBID? Or Biden either, for that matter…

Anybody else see the comet last night an hour after dark in the NW sky below the Big Dipper? I live where it’s very dark, far north mountains no cities, and with binoculars it was incredible. Far more beautiful that this latest dimwit blond hired by Trump to spout meaningless drivel.

I’m getting more cynical by the day, and that’s saying something!

That would be Keir Dullea.

Hi TrumpTowerofBabe.
THANK you! I remember how much I liked him in that movie but aII I could remember was that he had an unusual name. : )

What also needs to be pointed out is that Trump’s loyal supporters also seem quite robotic when they refuse to engage in any kind of critical thinking when it comes to their allegedly infallible leader.

When Lewis CarroI wrote, " AIice in Wonderland, "he was on to how governments work!
So I nominate Trump as TweedIe Dum, and his foIIowers can aII be TweedIe Dees, and AG Barr can be the Caterpillar smoking his hooka on the toadstool—because , they Iook like and pontificate without being at aII heIpfui. : )

Any way to wake up the sheeple ? The ones who watch fox ? I have tried. No luck.

I live in a rural part of the Pacific Northwest and have felt quite foolish in trying to talk to people rationally in my area. As the late comic George Carlin once noted, there are stupid people and then there are really stupid people. Trump’s loyal followers would seem to fall into the latter category.

You and me both Seal.

Although, if we are really to believe this brutal virus came from a bat as everyone in the political establishment and the CDC, both who have strong ties to bio weapons research including the weaponization of viruses to the tune of billions of dollars a year, and since nobody of any major standing in the White House has gotten ill and died from the virus, there could be a strong likelihood that a vaccine already exists, and only those with a “need to know this” have been inoculated.

Call it a conspiracy theory, or call it a possibility.

Consider the type of humans we are dealing with.

Same can be said for Obama or Biden supporters sadly.

No PonyBoy, it’s probably not a weaponized virus according to my retired biologist Vietnam-era ex-Army bio-warfare lab scientist 76 yr old neighbor because it isn’t lethal enough. Nor is the infection rates impressive enough for that matter.

It’s when your see your neighbor starts coughing in the afternoon and is dead in the morning, then everyone in that house is dead the next day, then you start coughing, and 95 out of a hundred people are dead in your town in a week…because it floats in the air for miles and miles and infects everybody with a 98% kill rate in 24 hours. Now THAT’S a damned excellent war virus!

Though it is possible that this totally new but mixed RNA-virus of a bunch of other virus’ RNA particles was in the process of becoming another weaponized biological warfare strain…but every country that could make these monstrous diseases did, just like nuclear weapons. It’s all the rage, ya know?

PonyBoy, you did read about Lyme’s Disease actually coming from the US Army war lab ten miles away from Old Lymestown where the first case showed up, and one of the lab bright boys admitting publicly a while back that it was exactly ‘like’ what he was working on; animal and insect-vectored diseases that could be dropped on a targeted population so they couldn’t fight?

Makes one shiver to think what the military forces of the world have locked up in their Level 5 lab vaults just waiting for a chance to see if it works like they want it to, doesn’t it?

The 1918 Pandemic was far more deadly and contagious in the 2nd Wave that hit the ‘coming home’ Army camps, and much more mild in the 1st Wave. The second wave could be a tsunami of sickness and death…

I really hope I’m wrong about that.

Well, I said it the other day. It all begins with Fox Noise. So called Christians got on board along the way, but there are a lot of non religious people too.
Just like with trump, every time I am foolish, or curious enough to turn them on for a few seconds a lie is born.

I agree as so many Americans think that they have to choose between a corporate and militant
Republican and a corporate and militant Democrat.
