    I can say with CONFIDENCE! Biden will not serve 7 more years, he's nothing more then a momentary SpeedBump, but one that has damaged the suspension on a lot of Vehicles the short time he'll be in office.

    There is absolutely no way he makes it 7 more years. Is that the Democrat plan? Let him go again until he is 85 years old? Lol Jesus Christ

    I'd extend it out to 21-28 days(ie: a month) to be on the safe side actually.

    If we had given $0.25 for every time I heard a Trumpist swear that Trump would serve a second term, I would be driving a Ferrari today.

    Nice try but the first one doesn’t call trump a racist for issuing a corona related travel ban, and the second wasn’t about Covid.
    Fail.

    That is Only ONE OPINION Article (written by One Person) which is behind a Paywall.

    Thus, you still haven't proven your claim.

    Obviously, at this point, you need to post something that is an Actual News Article (and not an opinion piece) which backs up your claim that:

    "Democrats called Trump a racist for implementing travel bans"


    Or just admit defeat and flee the thread.

    Those are your options.

    Quote; IF IF IF it’s more contagious, but has the survival rate of a common cold

    Florida’s Delta math/statistics;

    Facts:

    1. First Delta Case confirmed July 1st
    2. Average time period from Infection to Hospitalization, 3 - 4 days, original Covid, 5 - 6 days
    3. Hospital patients were much younger than original Covid
    4. Percent of Hospital patients requiring ventilators; 10 -12%, original Covid, 5 - 7%
    5. Percent of Hospital patients admitted to an ICU; highest, 24%, original Covid, highest, 21%
    6. INITIALLY, over 90% of hospitalized patients were unvaccinated.

    Now, Florida’s Delta Case Fatality Rate;

    SAME SAME SAME as original Covid; 1.65%

    However, Florida’s Delta infection rate as a percentage of population, significantly higher than original Covid.

    Conclusion; Omicron’s math/statistics, UNKNOWN!

    Yup...
    I think Bat Boy is going to serve 8 years starting in Jan 2025.
    ^PROVE Me Wrong...

    Anyway, many claims being made by Biden Haters in this thread are beyond misguided.
    And, then when called out, they've got NOTHING.

    Hopefully, the Travel Ban works as intended.

    I tend to agree, someone with the virus will usually get past our borders. But only a few hopefully providing enough time to smother it. Not closing borders will introduce a wave of infected people making it more difficult to contain. Closing borders don't work 100% but it does slow the flow of the virus getting in making it easier to contain.

    They both do Biden's attempt to walk in back later notwithstanding. And those along with the ones others have posted. It was one of the basis for the 4 years of claims Trump was a racist.

    Bottom line; The above average intelligent people know that Biden’s criticism towards Trump’s travel ban was a miscalculated political cheap shot.

    Will it save lives, from what we know about it so far yes. I haven't heard the efficacy of the vaccinations against it yet and I heard this morning that health experts in SA are saying it is no more dangerous than the current strains so need more info all around.

    Do you support the ban? Did you support Trump's?

    Without Covid, the economy humming along as it was, the border becoming safer by the week, unemployment in the black community at its lowest level, Trump would have destroyed Biden and you know it deep down.

    Thank China and the deaths of so many people that the cards fell as they did. Be proud. And look!!! Look at what a fantastic job Biden has done:) Race relations at their worst, the border in shambles, trust in govt and media at all time lows. The worst polls to grace a president as long as anyone can remember. And now he’s a proven racist, banning POC from entering the country? WOW!!! The guy is a revelation. Hehe

    Look at the math;

    South Africa’s primary international airport; O.R. Tambo International

    Annual number of international paid passengers; Approx. 9.2 million, average daily; 25,000, over two weeks, 350,000

    Source; Wikipedia

    Headline, The Guardian; Up to 22,000 passengers may have flown directly to or from South Africa to the UK in the past two weeks since the Variant was first identified.

    AP Report; From just over 200 new confirmed cases per day in recent weeks, South Africa saw the number of new daily cases rocket to 2,465 on Thursday.

    Rational; Over the last two weeks, less than 10% of Tambo’s international paid passengers “may have flown directly to or from South Africa to the UK.

    Question; What about the other +90%?

    Headline, one hour ago; UK Health confirms two Omicron cases.

    Conclusion; MOST LIKELY, and despite the flight bans that were on recently imposed by many nations, Omicron has already been spread all over the world.

    Well we can always hope for the best but plan for the worst. Life offers no guarantees but that doesn't mean we do nothing.
