    1. It started from Wuhan possibly from from a Chinese bioweapons lab that leaked the virus

    2. WHO was notified of the virus but echoed the Chinese lie that the virus cannot be transmitted human to human. They didn't correct that ststement until two weeks later on January 14th. By then the virus was already widespread in the US and there'a nothing anyone could do to stop it.

    3. Some democratic governors responses where to have a full lockdown. Millions became unemployed and committed suicide and domestic violence, but Dems pretend those aren't problems.

    4. Fauci gained power by telling people to stay home and he wants to extend that power

    5. Trump wanted to reopen the economy but was called racist. Any GOP governor who wants to reopen the economy is dragged through the mud.

    6. A recent study shows that the number of infected could be 85x higher which means mortality rate us 85x less. This makes it less deadly than the flu, but we shut down the economy for it.

    So lets recap. The Chinese bioweapons force created a seemingly deadly virus which is actually less deadly than the flu is released into the public. WHO said its not transmissible which allowed it to spread. Then socialists and communists gain power by being able to force people to stay home. Does something seem fishy to you? It's not about saving lives. It's about control.

    Sorry dude, but your claim of "what we know" should be retitled, "What Hannity told me we know but is really just a bunch of conjecture ...".

    So far we know VERY LITTLE about the virus. And we are NOT TESTING wide swaths of the general population who are not showing signs of the virus. We are not getting good data on how many are asymptomatic carriers of the virus who are spreading it to others unknowingly.

    There is some impressive conflicting information though that goes against some of these seemingly simple facts?!

    "Then socialists and communists gain power by being able to force people to stay home. Does something seem fishy to you? It's not about saving lives. It's about control."

    So what is Trump? A socialist or communist? The country is following his orders. He is bailing out the Corps. while the middle-class and poor wait for the country to reopen. By then the 1% will control more of the country than ever before.... And what about all those food storage areas in the eleven Trump hotels that are filled? They should be emptied to help those that need help, agreed?

    A powerful case has been presented that President Trump was asked to do an extremely difficult job and be surrounded by vipers very few of whom would actually be on his side.

    Thomas Malthus has lots and lots and lots of students and disciples... but they choose their public relations people carefully and pay them extremely well.

    Those are all good points. A little politically one sided... but true.

    But since were not avoiding blatant partisanship, I would add to this theory of power grabbing the contradiction that a lot of the same folks who advocate for restricting the elderly from costly medical procedures in the interest of benefitting the younger who have more to offer society are now some of the louder voices promoting greater sacrifices to the economy and thus common laborer to protect these very same elderly who make up the great bulk of those at risk from Cvirus.

    There is certainly some =\= going on that indicates ulterior motive and agenda.

    But, to be fair, when have the social engineers who view themselves as superior to us common insects ever not taken full advantage of emergencies to further their authority over our lives...

    It's a recurring theme across the forums.
    They quickly discount posts yet offer absolutely nothing tangible to support their position.

    Ever get the feeling we dealing with a lost cause?

    Neither. He's The President.
    C'mon...you didn't know that?
    Following orders is NOT socialism or communism.

    Also socialism and communism are actually very similar. One who advocates for one, likely is attracted to and approves of the other.
    As you may know, Trump is an entrepreneur with considerably more assets than you will ever have and therefore it is highly unlikely he would desire either.

    I just read that Chelsea Mass. conducted random stopping and testing of 200 passers by that were willing to participate. They employed a finger prick test to draw a drop of blood which thy can have a result within 10 minutes. Of the 200 random participants 64 WERE POSITIV E, a remarkable 32 Percent. So we can assume that one of every three people are infecting and carrying the spread of the virus.

    Your obsession with Hannity is scary.

    Which would drop the mortality rate to around.... A Seasonal flu.

    There is no reason to believe this virus was made in a lab. In fact, what we actually know about COVID-19 is that it does not behave the way a man-made lab virus would behave.

    What we "know"...is that some or all of each of those bullet points is NOT something we "know" at all
