    I’m sure they liked Trump’s ineptitude from a political standpoint, but that’s a far cry from actively cheering the disease.

    Democrats wanted to shut the entire country down specifically to stop the disease. What they said was incorrect partisan drivel.

    Prisons are being ravaged by COVID https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/21/o...e=articleShare

    Guards and their families at high risk in small towns without infrastructure to take on a spike. Ugh

Heck, they’re the same people that said thousands of little girls would get raped in bathrooms if we allowed transgender people to use their bathroom of preference. 4 years later... near zero instances...

    If you go back and look at all their bogus predictions, you realize how frequently they are dead wrong. The only question left is: why do they keep believing these predictions given how often they’ve been wrong before?
    You answered your final question in your opening statement.

    However, they did cheer for a failure from the trump administration in regard to a response. So in a massive roundabout way...I suppose you could say that they cheered that the virus would not be contained during Trump's administration.
    In a sense, maybe.

    But face it, it is about time that Trump and his supporters acknowldge that they completely fubarred the re-election (it WAS his to win) precisely because of his (and their) POS response to Covid-19.

    Seriously, even at such a late date as it was, that assclump in the White House would probably have won if he had come out of his own recovery with any sense of humility, empathy, and leadership.

    Screw your excuses. Covid-19 didn’t bring down Trump and his merry band of deplorables. His response to it did.

    What good is that going to do? Once you reopen, cases are going to happen. It isn't like a lockdown is going to do away with the virus. Plus, how many businesses and people's livelihoods will be lost? By god, you will be saved from a disease with a 99%+ recovery rate, but you won't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out.

    When does people's actual livelihoods and economic well being take some precedence over the virus?

    Second Bolded: when do American lives take some precedence over the economy?

    I agree an indefinite shutdown is too far, but seriously, the absolute indifference displayed towards hundreds of thousands of dead Americans is astounding.

    therein lies the quandry....where is the point of diminishing return, where is the balance that slows this thing down to a crawl yet doesn't kill the economy.....

    A great question. Off hand I’d say somewhere in between total shutdown and Sweden’s “no restrictions” plans.

    My bad, I should have said a little less than half of those who voted were for Trump. Either way, it doesn't give me much hope.
    A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

    The economy is fine. It it wasn’t we’d bail it out like we did under Obama. It’s people who are getting ****ed

    well, there's also no virus that's going to be able to wipe out the entire population either, so moot point

    No it's not. Fixing the economy and fixing the pandemic go hand in hand. Can't do the former without the latter.

    I feel like you got the point entirely and just drifted passed it because you weren't sure how to respond.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!
