    And just in case some here do not understand the meaning of "capitalism" - its definition:
    That's all! Anybody see in that definition a "political meaning" to the word. I don't see any. Do you?

    Now, of course, how the above relates to National Taxation is an altogether different subject. Because the two words must deal with the issue of how National Income is shared in any societal entity known as a "country" ...

    So let's follow along

    Trumpers don't want people wearing masks

    They don't want to stay home

    They don't want to continue distancing

    Do I have that right?

    IME they mostly just dont want folks to be forced to stop working.

    All the things you listed individuals are free to do regardless of Trumpers (and as a Trumper I recomend doing).

    I can't believe that your thinking process is that shallow. It has to be better than that. I have faith that you can figure out on your own how and why the WHO is so screwed up. Google it.

    I am not sure it's worth my time. You don't seem willing to listen. You already have your "orange man bad regardless of the facts" philosophy anyway. You should also be able to explain why the WHO doesn't totally suck dog ass.

    WHO, the United Nations’ health agency, started sounding the alarm on the outbreak of a new coronavirus in Wuhan, China in mid-January, designating the COVID-19 pandemic as a global health emergency on Jan. 30 when there were just 8,200 cases in 18 countries across the world. The coronavirus has since wreaked havoc across the globe, spreading to more than 1.4 million people and killing more than 81,000, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

    The WHO’s global emergency declaration on Jan. 30 was nearly a month before Trump tweeted that “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA” and six weeks before he declared a national emergency on March 13.


    But Trump NEEDS a foil to deflect from HIS abysmal performance

    A mask can protect the wearer from touching their face, picking their nose, or putting a finger in their mouth. But to keep from inhaling a virus is about as effective as stopping a fart with a chain link fence.

    Really? How can you be so totally screwed up to believe this total Bullshit! You recommend me to use google? Well ... I recommend you to use it to see what are the duties of the WHO and so on ... and after this, keep in silent shame!

    Your total jerk an bastard in White House blamed the WHO not to have done their job to block Corona in China. ROFL ... this alone shows that Trump has as usual no clue about!

    Here ... quoted form their web site:

    The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations based in Geneva. It was founded on April 7, 1948 and has 194 member states. The WHO is the United Nations' coordinating authority for international public health and is responsible for global health issues. Her mandate includes the definition of globally applicable norms and standards, the formulation of evidence-based health policy principles and the design of the research agenda for health.

    According to the constitution of the World Health Organization, its goal is to achieve the best possible level of health for all people. Its main task is to fight diseases and promote the general health of all people worldwide.

    WHO supports its member states in the professional implementation of health programs, monitors and evaluates health trends, promotes medical research and provides emergency aid in the event of disasters.

    A central task of the WHO is to develop guidelines, standards and methods in health-related areas, to standardize them and to implement them worldwide. Important fields of action are involved

    the worldwide coordination of national and international activities in the fight against communicable diseases such as AIDS, malaria, SARS and flu,

    initiating global vaccination programs and programs against health risk factors such as smoking or obesity,

    the regular collection and analysis of worldwide health and disease data,

    support in building the most effective and cost-effective health systems in third world countries.

    No dude ... Trump is just looking for a scapegoat for his own total failure and blames his own fault on the WHO! He personally downplayed the whole thing after his entry stop from China, not on his advisors, whose warnings as heard from the CDC and, as usual, only spread bullshit. Look back at all his statements from January to today and be amazed!

    And that's a fact ...

    You mean you can't provide what you expected me to provide? Not surprised. Some liberals are like that.
    The problem is that the WHO is that they praised China and defended them after China obviously lied about the WUHAN Chinese virus. They didn't learn their lesson when China lied about SARs. At least with the SARs issue the WHO hammered China for lying. This time they defended them and covered for them.

    So you post crap from the WHO site that where the WHO says that they did a great job. Right.

    The problem is that the WHO is that they praised China and defended them after China obviously lied about the WUHAN Chinese virus. They didn't learn their lesson when China lied about SARs. At least with the SARs issue the WHO hammered China for lying. This time they defended them and covered for them.

    O dear ... are you just palying the ignorant one or are you really?

    Topic are:
    Tasks, duties and rights of the WHO ... and they are clear and they clearly state that they have fully fulfilled their tasks! Quite the opposite of Donald Trump, who totally failed and just made the WHO a scapegoat for his own failure.

    And by the way, Trump has just as well China China for the measures in Wuhan as the WHO ... forgot? So he's corrupted by China like the WHO, eh?

    I don't follow anyone. I support Trump. Those are reasons we don't need to waste our money on supporting the WHO. As of even yesterday the WHO supports the opening of wet markets which no country agrees with. How many virus need to come from one country before the WHO begins to really scrutinize what CHina says rather than just believe what they say and take it at face value? They shouldn't given China's track record with SARs.
