    MAGA propaganda.

    You should take a look at what happened with the Spanish Flu epidemic.

    If we had done as well as Canada, at least 500,000 more Americans would be having Thanksgiving in a couple of days. Doesn't that bother you?

    The state government abuse of power during the COVID hysteria is MAGA propaganda? It happened. We lived through it. How is that propaganda?

    Evidently liberals loons believed Biden when he said COVID a shot would prevent you from getting and spreading COVID. He either didn’t know what he was talk g about, or he lied. Which one was it?

    Your comment (see above) is the propaganda. You're ignoring slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, two centuries of displacement killing of Native Americans, discrimination against women, and the imprisonment of Japanese during WW2. I could go on. Perhaps you should turn off the ranting fools on Newsmax (etc.) and read some American history.
    500,000+ dead is a lot of empty chairs, more than died during WW2. Doesn't it bother you?

    There has never been a greater example of government abuse of power on a national level liked we saw with the COVID hysteria.

    I have never visited Newsmax. I don’t know anything about it.

    Government abuse during COVID impacted the entire nation. There’s no way anyone can condone or justify that level of widespread abuse.

    Recognizing the historical abuse by government during the COVID hysteria does not trivialize previous abuses.

    You're the guy who made the comparisons. I'm not saying the covid restrictions didn't impact people, some much more than others, but they're not of the moment of slavery, Jim Crow, the military draft--all with nationwide impact.

    Reaction to Covid totally changed this country, completely redirected it. Nothing has ever had that effect other than nuclear weapons and that brought us together rather than splitting us up. Fatalities were terrible but they did not cause the effect the political aspect did.

    I'd say WW2 had a greater impact that covid or nuclear weapons.

    Ok but in reality, we haven't done nukes yet. We may well be closer than ever though.

    Could be given proliferation and the further development of smaller weapons.

    I can't say I appreciate the insanity of running a truly ruthless police state.

    500,000 people dying because we ran an incompetent response to the pandemic? That's a terrible legacy.

    A bio weapon got released and did what bio weapons are supposed to do. Blame the people who designed it and didn't adequately safeguard it.

    At this point, we don't have a definitive answer on what happened.
    If we had done as well as Canada at dealing with covid, at least 500,000 Americans would be alive today.

    (6,563 BC covid deaths / BC pop. 5,519,013) * USA pop. 335,893,238 = 399,432

    (57,711 Canada covid deaths / Canada pop. 38,968,433) * USA pop. 335,893,238 = 497,447​

    https://health-infobase.canada.ca/covid-19/current-situation.html

    British Columbia where I live part of the year had its schools fully open except for a few weeks in 2020. Stores were always open. Large sporting events, conventions and other large gatherings were banned before the vaccines.

    We've had 1,172,229 covid deaths.

    The difference between the U.S. and Canada was, I believe, that Canadians took it upon themselves to be more careful to avoid infecting others when they were symptomatic. We had covidiots engaging in reckless behavior to prove they could do what they wanted. :roll: :lol:

    Your conclusions based on anecdote are wrong.. There was no difference overall deaths between Sweden .. who didn't lock down and Canada or the EU .. that entire population experiment was done .. and the T-Shirt Purchased.

    The Death rate in the US was Far Higher than 500,000 your data is wrong .. US deaths were 1.2 million ~ 360 per 100,000 where in canada it was 150 per 100,000 .. this is quite a bit higher ... more Fat and unhealthy people being one possible factor.

    but how about Nigeria .. 3155 deaths .. population 220 million 1.4 dead per 100,000

    How about Uzbeckistan 1637 deaths .. 35 million people . .. near same as Canada.

    Moral of the story .. Jabs and lockdowns didn't make a wit of difference to numbers dead over the general population..

    Your comment is absurd. Deaths per 100,000...

    U.S. -- 341.11
    Sweden -- 235.43
    Canada -- 135.23
    British Columbia -- 101.15**

    https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/mortality

    **5,430 covid deaths and 5,368,266 population

    Your the only one with the absurd comments .. Sweden 235 - France 256 - Germany 218

    What part of not much difference between locking down and no lock down in the EU is giving you trouble ?

    So, go ahead and explain why Canada and British Columbia had far better numbers than Sweden.
