    Socialism's Latest Contribution to the World: The Corona Virus.
    Let's get off this incessant, redundant, totally useless blame game. It doesn't matter where it started. It's affecting most of the world, including us. Instead of wasting our time & energy spouting bile, let's work cooperatively together with anybody & everybody willing, to gain control of the situation & help those infected. Finding fault & laying blame solves nothing & creates more unnecessary conflict. Find a better way to respond.

    I think it would be very useful if we could convince those in communist and socialist not to eat vermin.

    You're continuing to deride others & place an expectation for them to act in some way to help rather than you. It doesn't matter if someone threatened by Corornavirus is a capitalist, or a communist, or a socialist, or a liberal or a conservative. They are fellow humans facing a personal threat. They need your compassion & understanding. They need your willingness to act if by acting you can help save them. Instead of judging them as "less than" you or those like you, try caring that they are human like you, & recognizing that that in itself is quite enough.

    It is you who is making absurds conclusions from a plausible, sensible explanation yet you offer no motivated alternative explanation but eager to defend the childish notion that is the fault of "Communism". :icon_picknose:

    What is "plausible", or "sensible" about asserting that the US CIA was responsible for the Wuhan Flu? Who cares if there's an alternative narrative, yours is laughable.

    Either you haven't read what I've already written or you did read it but it was way over your head.

    Gosh... that being unlikely you're asserting, as did the Chinese New agency a piece of propaganda from the Chinese government that has zero evidence to support it. So, there is nothing plausible, or sensible about you continuing to repeat it.

    Define regime failures?

    If one just wants a quick glance, look at the DJIA stock price.
    See which regimes it goes up in, and which regimes it goes down in.

    The DJIA is considered an indicator of the economy. So some might claim success as a rising DJIA.
    Some might consider not getting into more wars as not a failure.
    So, there are many things that people will consider when determining failure or success, but a great many use economic things as their determining factor.

    Now lets take your case, where the rightist regime claims a pandemic virus outbreak is a hoax and tells people, don't worry, it will go away on it's own in warmer weather.
    How does the world react? Like the person saying that is clueless and makes the entire situation worse.
    Some might call that statement of hoax's etc to be a failure. And a few, like you perhaps, will think that is a success.

    But the DJIA, thought those remarks were a failure and reacted accordingly.

    I was referred to Italy. But the Dow Jones has fallen and risen under both parties, the difference is that it’s falling now because of foreign markets and a virus outbreak...it fell under Obama because of dems policies

    Lets just take the last 20 yrs.
    Under Bush, the market may have finished lower than when he started. But his term ended with the greatest economic downturn since the great depression.
    Then we've had 10+ yrs of market bull run. One of the longest in history. Most of that bull run was under the so called leftist regime. A few under this tRUMPian rightist regime, but now, we might be headed for yet another recession. Under what I can only gather as success full policies if you think obama's great run were failed policies.
    Let's how this rightist regime doesn't top the last rightist regime that sent us into the great recession.

    So I guess you and I differ on good vs bad policies.
    I like the one's where the economy is good, steady, and strong.

    We aren’t headed to a recession. Obama’s policies pushed trillions a month in the market with zero percent interest. It was all fake and flanked with double digit unemployment

    Gasp! One forking media outlet ever criticized Barack Obama versus ALL media outlets -- sometimes even Fox -- criticizing Trump. Yes . . . Obama had it hard as everyone spun and covered for him while experiencing leg tingling Obamagasms.

    Daniel.....I hear what your saying and positively agree. Do you ever remember a time when the press was so un evenhanded in reporting? My days of remembering started mostly with JFK. My parents were ardent Republicans and though I didn't know a whole lot. they supported his positions and when he was shot....they were devastated. I remember the press even being more evenhanded with Nixon and his disagreeable behavior. Even though they have always leaned left, the reporting around as late as Bill Clinton was pretty fair. Both Bush administrations had a fairly fair press. During and after BHO it has been noticeably different. They have most definitely become a tool for the left. 95% of reporting has been negative for Trump for 3.5 years. That doesn't hold near even with the percentage that supports him. I hold to the belief that the polarization of America is derived from an unbalanced press and a President that fights back. For 3.6 years he has worked around it and been quite remarkable in spite of the fact they resent his tweets.

    If you want to call it socialism for your talking point, fine, but China is paying the bill with the tariffs they pay, and I love it!

    Here’s the problem. The Chinese farmer who switched from growing crops because he couldn’t sell them due to Trump’s tariffs? Yup, he was the guy who started trading in wild animal parts that turned out to be the start of the Covid 19 pandemic.

    Congratulations Mr. Trump.
