    The Chinese Covid 19 is a product of socialism. At least anyone who wants it can pretty much get it just like with socialism. If you want poverty, disease, starvation, oppression, etc... it comes with socialism.

    I guess it is probably a waste of time to try to educate you on the difference between facts and speculation... You have nothing.

    In other words, you know that I am right but you can't admit it. It's just as I thought and that's why I told you to be specific. I knew you couldn't find anything wrong with my list so telling you to find fault in it would hush you. A good plan with the expected results.

    No one, including you, know's that "you're right", and frankly, asserting it doesn't add anything to make you actually being credible. Why continue to waste time on what is so obviously propaganda that was floated by the Chinese? Especially on a board like this?

    I'm not Chinese and the list I wrote is fact, pure fact. I am guessing that by now you have checked up on my list and know that I am right so now your pain is both from seeing fact for what it is and then there is the butthurt from falling off that limb you were out on.

    Some 328 immigrants from China have been caught crossing the border illegally so far this year, according to Homeland Security data that raises the prospect a coronavirus carrier could sneak into the country via the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Three other people from South Korea — another country with rapidly spreading cases — have also been arrested at the border, as have 122 people from the Dominican Republican, where the coronavirus has now been detected.

    tRUMP declared war on the press.
    Enemy of the people.
    The same press that gave him all that free press during election cycle.

    I think most rational people are more interested in finding a cure as opposed to pointing fingers which does nothing to find a cure/vaccine for the cornonavirus.

    Nah, it's drastically changed under this admin, at least until the virus, which is just a blimp on the radar

    Nope.
    Wages were still stagnant.
    Millions still without health ins.
    Jobs were plentiful, no doubt.

    Wrong...wages have been rising...finally...after the Obama years: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/13/wor...e-getting-most-benefit-from-rising-wages.html

    People without heatlhcare insurance are doing it because of their own choice at this point. Medicaid, Medicare is available, and there are plenty of more choices, and cheaper, since Trump took office.

    I have actually been in China a while, and there is no food shortage. People in China have historically eaten bats and snakes and thats why they continue to eat them. Many people in China will prefer a bag of chicken feet to a bag of potato chips any day.

    The press LOVED Donald Trump before he ran for President. The press just does not like to be challenged. Trump has made fools of the press. Every crisis they revel in, he comes out smelling like a rose. They aren't used to that. They bullied Romney, McCain and W. Bush. They just sucked their thumb in response. They tangled with someone that gives it back and they don't like it.

    I am in the opposite camp of you.
    He's been made the fool, by being a fool though.
    He smells alright. Rose is not even in the Universe as to what he smells like.
    Probably why he can't ever crack the 50% approval rating.

    What you never quite figured out from 2016.....human nature likes to go along with the crowd. It likes to play it safe and not offend anyone. They will answer polls to please the pollster (and sometimes to mislead them) With the News media working 24/7 to demonize Trump, many just choose to remain silent in their support for him. Come November 2020, and in the privacy of their voting booth....it again will be a different story. On the other hand, there are a lot of people that will always be negative about everything. They tell the polsters exactly what they want to hear. Problem is, they are so negative they probably just won't vote. You don't need to take my word for any of this. Just wait until the election and see for youreslf.

    Nope... Sorry, but the dog you're hunting just doesn't. There are no "facts" in your list. You've simply provided a series of speculations and wild a$$ guesses, and packaged them internally as facts. That doesn't make them real, and frankly, again, your continued purveying of them seems programatic. It's pure chinese propaganda, and you know it.

    When you label stuff "state capitalism", what you've really said is organizations owned by the state, which, in China, they are. That isn't capitalism....

    Biden WILL Win.

    Trump has a ceiling of about 48% in the Big 3 Swing States.

    And, without a 3rd Party Candidate (like Stein) siphoning off Dem. Votes, Trump will be toast.
