    Innocent civilians being shot in America? What EVER shall we do?!?!
  2. They aren't though, part of the reason we weren't...

    They aren't though, part of the reason we weren't more prepared was because we had somehow convinced ourselves that the spread of the virus was only due to how the Chinese government handled it, and...
  3. I mean this is the kind of attitude that has...

    I mean this is the kind of attitude that has gotten us in the predicament we're in now. For months we were fed story after story about how the Chinese government was covering up the outbreak, and...
  4. Christ this is exactly what I was talking about...

    Christ this is exactly what I was talking about with that brain dead American exceptionalism nonsense. With all the egregious fuck ups we've had during this crisis, some people's first instinct is...
  5. American society has always had to deal with the...

    American society has always had to deal with the inherent contradiction between what we think our successful attributes are, and the fucked up history of depredations and mass murder that was the...
  6. That doesn't make any sense. Americans have...

    That doesn't make any sense. Americans have lived in this insane Frankenstein of a socioeconomic system for decades and pretty much everyone hates it, you put any of Bernie's policies up for a...
  7. Well the people who can actually make it to that...

    Well the people who can actually make it to that level are the lucky ones, for every one that becomes a marketable star there are hundreds of kids who dedicated extraordinary amounts of time and...

    The Phoenix hasn't been sullied, it's just stealing other characters' gimmicks has always been and always will be lame. Jean wouldn't be cool if she ran around with adamantium claws and Thor's...

    I don't know why anyone would want to put Wanda...

    I don't know why anyone would want to put Wanda in combat boots. Her costumes should always be elegant and stylish, not rugged and practical.
  10. How exactly could that be? It's hard to remember...

    How exactly could that be? It's hard to remember this now, but in 2016 Trump and his family were nobodies, his casinos were failing and his TV show had long faded from prominence, the only thing...
  11. I don't think anyone at this point can doubt that...

    I don't think anyone at this point can doubt that China's approach to the virus has been effective, albeit draconian and heavy-handed. Yeah, it's not a great sign that they are ready to do a victory...
  12. That's exactly the problem though, our misplaced...

    That's exactly the problem though, our misplaced cultural superiority complex gives us this false sense of security at times like this. Obviously the Chinese government fucked up its response to the...
  13. That's irrelevant though, somewhere down the line...

    That's irrelevant though, somewhere down the line some outbreak like this was bound to happen, and in the past decade we've seen diseases originate from all over the planet, and we actually got quite...
  14. This is hardly something you can pin entirely on...

    This is hardly something you can pin entirely on Trump though. For as long as anyone can remember, people have claimed that they were just opposed to the Chinese government but didn't hate the...
  15. Future historians will definitely have a field...

    Future historians will definitely have a field day with how such a mediocre individual was able to amass so much fame and fortune, even before he became president Trump was sort of a byword for...
  16. We should make sure that we offer enough support...

    We should make sure that we offer enough support to local businesses so that they can cover the costs of renting their space or maintaining their equipment while the doors are shuttered, but...
  17. Forget the fucking election, NOW is the time to...

    Forget the fucking election, NOW is the time to push forward sweeping legislation making sure that the American people are taken care of during this crisis and all future crisis while guaranteeing...
  18. No, because what the GOP is proposing are all...

    No, because what the GOP is proposing are all just half measures that won't come close to providing the necessary relief. Most of that $2000 stimulus is going directly into the pockets of landlords.
  19. It was absolutely the latter, because if...

    It was absolutely the latter, because if containing the virus was really the priority we would also have been using that time to stockpile supplies, setting up quarantine centers, developing...
  20. The point is that the Democrats should be using...

    The point is that the Democrats should be using this crisis as an opportunity to push forth legislation that at any other time would be considered politically unpalatable because of budgetary...
  21. The point is not that the Republicans newfound...

    The point is not that the Republicans newfound willingness to provide relief during the virus makes them somehow good, it's that it shows that the GOP never did and never will care about how to pay...
  22. Even getting a public option would require either...

    Even getting a public option would require either a 60 vote supermajority, which is exceedingly unlikely, or a leader willing to invoke the nuclear option on ALL bills which could set a disastrous...
  23. So, how about we keep all of that, and also adopt...

    So, how about we keep all of that, and also adopt the economic policies that those parties have? Is universal health care somehow a homophobic policy?
  24. The context was that I posted about the...

    The context was that I posted about the relatively moderate policies that Bernie was trying to introduce, got called a commie anyway, and figured if that's what I was going to be labeled regardless,...
  25. Mass murder is dramatic and all, but it accounts...

    Mass murder is dramatic and all, but it accounts for a pretty small proportion of the death and suffering our species has experienced throughout its history. Much more serious are the tolls racked...
