Awesome, when too many Americans didn’t know that Indonesia was a country.
It says something about your education system. It goes deep, the Donald didn’t know that Finland was a country…
“ The Donald” and “Orange Man Bad” and impeachment, and Twitter, etc. When I dig into the
The guy’s an embarrassment and does a great disservice to Americans.
When I ask people in other countries what President Trump should do about the Pandemic I hear Unconstitutional action after Unconstitutional action. He should have “shut the country
Your constitution is an excuse for not taking action. Tell the cop on the beat that Stop and Frisk is contrary to the 14th Amendment and see where that gets you. The purpose of your 2nd Amendment is to prevent a government from taking forceful power… by rights, it should entitle people to have the same weaponry as the state. It’s not going to happen; those in power use the Constitution as they see fit. If ‘the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed’ why are there likely 100,000 laws infringing on the simple statement; it shouldn’t be that difficult to understand.
As it suits them, ‘Live Free and Die’; it’s your choice. [Added]It’s not really your choice when you are putting the rest of the world at risk, due to your indulgence [Added]. Had the problem been addressed, properly, in February, your businesses would be open for business… the manner in which it has been handled, safe opening is anybody’s guess. I’m expecting a huge spike because of schools opening… and I will ‘eat crow’ if I’m wrong. It’s just a matter of waiting a few weeks to see what happens. As I noted, there is a huge responsibility that comes with freedom; it’s a real double edged sword.
President Trump did “act in February” within his Constitutional Authority and stopped air traffic from China–
too little, too late, and mis-directed. It was’t for a few months after that he stopped people from Europe… the source of American infections. None of the infections came directly from China. Politically he uses the China flu… the origin. We don’t refer to the Spanish flu as the Kansas flu… the origin. It’s politically convenient.
Your article has lists of confirmed cases, nothing about number of tests those numbers represent. If you test 5% of the people in Alberta, and 65% of the People in Montana, and both populations have a 15% infection rate, then dang if Montana will show a higher per capita (or per million population) infection rate as an artifact of wildly different testing rates.
You missed it… the tests are based on per million people; this levels the playing field. Because of the difference in populations, I noted that smaller countries should be excluded. If a country has a population of 10 people, 1 test will indicate that 10% of the population was tested. [Added] Carrying this to extremes, if you did absolutely no testing, you would have absolutely no cases, and 170,000 Americans ‘popped off’ for no reason at all. Testing is part of containment and that’s it. Test results have to be available within a couple of days at most. Getting results back in a week is useless and impossible to determine contacts. For a rich technological country, the US has failed terribly at testing… when you see lineups stretching for miles with results available in a couple of weeks… your death toll shows this is not working [Added].
The data has been manipulated to be unrecognizable as representing anything at all. I’m happy for you that you “believe it”, but I still contend that “belief is the acceptance of a
One of the sites I use is:
The data is not manipulated and you can see how the individual countries and states are doing. Looking at the ‘real’ numbers the US is doing very poorly. There is integrity to the data and it’s consistent with the John Hopkins data… as of this afternoon sometimes the Americans have lost 177, 211 citizens, and the situation is not improving.
