    why hasn't your leftist press exposed this? If true, they would be all over it! You just seem to have private information.

    Well that makes a lot of sense! Then let's just keep our southern border open so there is no screening! Your brilliant Daniel!

    It was Trump’s decision not to screen returning tourists until the last few days. Talk to him.

    Had the proven tests been available and had he taken prompt action from the very beginning (he has done far more than European Countries) you and those on the left would be screaming Fascist! From the filters you see through, there is no winning W/ President Trump.

    Welcome to the real world. Every President has to deal with criticism. If you think differently, go back about 8 years and watch a few Fox News broadcasts or read all the threads started by conservative poster.

    “Leftist press”? What press are you talking about other than in your imagination and what makes you think I subscribe to this fantasy “press” of yours?

    “They”? Who are “they” other than in your imagination?

    Yet another problem with distinguishing economic systems. Sure. Socialism and Communism share some basic similarities but they’re different. China is a Communist state which kills the premise of the thread.

    Yeah. No. Socialism leads to Communism doesn’t fly and falls into the pot is the gateway drug type of mental gymnastics.

    Yeah. Confronting the flaws of capitalism doesn’t make one a socialist.
    Nor has Socialism brought us COVID-19. The notion is freaking silly and I wonder what is so deficient in people’s lives that they’d waste so much time concocting this crap. It’s every where, are message boards essentially toilets for the mind?

    :applause:

    You've just destroyed the only slide-rule credibility to their boast of political "insight". Where will they find the strength & stamina for sufficient confidence in order to enter the political forum now? :cynic:

    What does that have to do with concocting biological weapons and actually using them on people as the U.S. does? You need to concentrate on the dialogue. Was I speaking over your head maybe?

    True. In a twist of ironic fate, it seems Mexico is now trying to figure out how to keep folks from the US out... But securing the boarders doesn't just mean from Mexico.

    Securing the boarder isn't mutually exclusive of US vs Non US citizens, and never has been. That doesn't mean that democrats aren't still pissed that travel is being restricted and all those potential new cases aren't getting to come in.

    Believe me, it's not just the Democrats who are pissed - millions of Republican business owners and people employed in
    travel related industries are going to take a huge financial hit from this.

    And here's the problem - one day you have Trump calling it all a hoax, and a few days later he's shutting down travel. Confusion at the top leads to anger and confusion all down the line.

    Folks, as you say, will take a financial hit. Perhaps, but the alternative and it's impact far outweigh any, I repeat... ANY of the short term pain shutting down international travel from the effected areas is going to have. And just be at least a little honest, and fair here.

    Being honest means taking a critical look at a President who was so worried about the optics of COVID 19 that he would call
    it a hoax and contradict his own CDC and then have to go into panic mode when he discovers his down-play of the virus had
    hurt his chances of re-election. Americans aren't stupid. They can see that in Trump's mind this is a political crisis - not a medical one. Trump didn't even take his own possible exposure seriously until it became a political issue.

    You are probably aware- but just FYI, the Chinese government has a national virus bio-research lab on the outskirts of Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus. Many say this is a biological weapons lab.
    The chances of an employee getting unknowingly exposed and going home with the bug seem to be extremely likely given the proximity, and the very first suspect. If you were a vegas odds-maker you would be banking on it as the odds-on source. Of course China denies it, but it's kind of like blaming your sudden radiation sickness on a passing meteor rather than the nuke plant you live next to.

    False. Firstly, every country in Europe has the right to decide this for itself, there's no superordinate agency that could tell individual countries what to do. Secondly, Austria, Germany, Switzerland (Austrian Air, Lufthansa, Swiss Air) closed their air routes on 3 Feb., Air France and British Airways also closed their routes quickly. The flights into European countries were flights to get Europeans out of the affected areas and people who landed at European airports where then sent into quarantine.

    Unless every European country stops travel from China, what the others do is meaningless because travel within Europe is relatively unrestricted.

    The claim you made is false. Italy, for example, banned air travel before the US did and the idiot in the White House lied again.
    U.S. President Donald Trump said a ban on Europeans entering the United States is necessary because Europe hadn’t banned flights from China early as the U.S. had done. “The European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots as a result a large number of new clusters were seeded by travellers from Europe,” he said. But virtually every part of this statement is untrue.
    Italy imposed a ban on flights from China on 31 January, immediately after a Chinese couple in Rome tested positive for the virus. The U.S. began to restrict flights from China four days later. But while Italy enacted a full ban, the U.S. policy was only a restriction, with wide exemptions.
