Quoted from SadSack:

See photo comment.

Or it could be that a majority of people in certain areas aren't lazy cowards trying to hide under a rock while waiting for big Daddy Trump to pass out the Benjamins.

Rules for thee, but not for me! In truth, it's time for everyone to take personal responsibility for themselves and their own safety. But it's also time for those who would boss others around in fear to STFU![quoted image]

That’s not ironic. At all.

#11707 3 months ago

A lot of pockets of civil disobedience in our country regarding the stay at home order. Most likely more to come. I'd be really interested in hearing from our pinball friends in other countries if they're seeing the same thing.

In the video you posted, Bill Gates mentions reproductive health services and healthcare are how the population growth is controlled. Poor people often lack the ability to control when and how many children they have. See that is how your conspiracy theory is ignoring many of the parts of what Bill Gates said.

#11709 3 months ago
Quoted from poppapin:

Yes there may be some spikes but there are a lot of states and counties with low rates of infection. Those are the ones that should open 1st.

I agree, but I hope people who live in those areas will follow the guidelines closely. Most of these small towns have a lot of elderly people, and they need to be protected.

The dude says he wants to bring CO2 to Zero and we can only do that through population reduction.

Well, first off, bringing CO2 to zero kills all of humanity. Second, vaccines don't prevent unwanted children. Third, you should try to overcome your programming.

#11711 3 months ago

sadsack what do you have against Bill Gates? He’s done more to prepare us for a pandemic than anyone I know. Are you mad because he’s not supporting Windows95 anymore?

#11712 3 months ago
Quoted from zpinman370:

The proof will be found out at some point and just like anything usually lies in the middle not left or right. There are the conspiracy theorists for sure who are on the right. There are also the ones on the left that have their heads up their asses and can't accept any semblance of responsibility or culpability that the CCP needs to address.

you don't need to make conspiracy theories some kind of partisan spin. By giving equal air to conspiracy theories and experts and saying "we'll meet somewhere in the middle" you're letting nutjobs and grifters hijack the conversation.

Reproductive health services = birth control and pregnancy education/planning = lowering population

Do you not believe in birth control?

Even in our state of Pa. there are counties with low cases and zero deaths. People cannot be without income forever!!

If a person lived in one of those areas where there was a low infection rate, would they want to have things open back up and take the chance people from higher infected areas would come to their area?

Not when the controls are implemented on the populations against their will: https://www.ncronline.org/news/world/kenyas-catholic-bishops-tetanus-vaccine-birth-control-disguise No. I don't feel entitled to implement others' birth control. Only disgusting control freaks would even think in such a way.

By that logic, firefighters that practice on empty buildings are arsonists. Bring real evidence, and stop polluting this group with your nonsense conspiracy theories.

Yes, there are many places that could re-open. It would be perceived by the others who can't as unfair. So we must all suffer equally.
Not to mention people moving (escaping) from "Repressive" States to ones open. Thus spreading the virus.
Just as borders have returned in Europe ignoring the free movement so important to the EU concept, there are those who fear a return of States borders in the US.
Having 50 Governors making decisions concerning 50 States highlights Independence and "States Rights", concepts deemed dangerous by some.

You really think that is what the intent is?? there are fnjs on all sides and we now can see what side your on - Typical of the left wing. As soon as something comes along that you don't 100% agree on you go on the attack. For the record, I think you know who, is a buffoon, but I am also open minded enough to listen to all aspects of the conversation. I suppose now we need to look at who doctored all those videos as they just can't be true

Deemed especially dangerous by central planning, commie-wannabes that hate the 10th amendment. The beauty of the USA is the its limits on all government. It's something that is only found here. It's something property of the crown and socialists will never understand.

How anyone doesn't think we have a problem and wants to re-open is just crazy.
I love Darwin, he was right in so many ways.
Any minute now today, on 4/19....
We are at 40,000 lost souls. 40k!!!
Thats a shit load of dead people.

Social distancing and masks will still need to be in place.

And tell me how much these 40k deviate from normal mortality levels. 370 million people in USA.. How many die every day. What is our current deviation from the norm? It's bullshit and you've swallowed the whole cow pie.

#11727 3 months ago
Quoted from zpinman370:

Yes but what if the US gave China the $$$ to the lab that actually created the virus if it holds up to be true??

International collaboration and cowork is common. Don’t take one fact to mean something else.

By this logic if we had a mass bombing which killed 40,000 people in a day we would also discount it because hey, lots of people die every day in the US.

COVID-19 has killed 40,000 people in about 6 weeks and that's WITH extreme mitigation measures. Compare that to influenza that killed 34,200 people in 2018 in about 6 months with no mitigation measures at all.

Catch a clue.

Agreed. However......look at the beaches in Florida that have been re-opened. How are the social distancing and masks working out there?

Maybe the rules regarding conspiracy theories should be changed then? They are inherently political.

Moderation in all things.....the crazy was getting a little thick in here. I think we are all prone to "nervous chatter" but that is ridiculous...

Well, how do these 40k deviate?
All the rest of daily death is called, natural causes, pick one.
This Pandemic is 20x deadlier than the flu, 12-14x easier to catch, and you can have it several days before knowing.
Not going to argue, im good with how I move forward.

Would it be possible to open a virus conspiracy theory thread and keep this thread for more factually backed/documented conversation? That way many of us could just avoid a certain kind of banter.

#11736 3 months ago

he has been exorcised Eric....I hope permanently this time...I ,myself, would troll and encourage the loony if the stakes weren't so high....I ,personally, try to limit my posts in here and look forward to the truly informative posts.

No one knows. I guess Florida will have to monitor their infection/death numbers and see.

#11740 3 months ago

If "Safe Zones" are established where freedom of movement is less restricted the "Hot Zones" will suffer a stigma and become undesirable places.
I was amazed how quickly normally moderate areas where New Yorkers own vacation houses set up road blocks and unwelcome signs and made it difficult for people fleeing lockdowns.
People resort to the lowest common denominator of "Not in my back yard" mentality when the SHTF. A worsening
of the current situation could lead to Counties and States having road blocks and no-go zones. This may be necessary to return to some semblance of Economic production but will only increase hostility for those who can't.

#11744 3 months ago

I shouldn’t respond to troll posts. In the future I’ll post something positive and unrelated.

Right now I’m thinking back to this early February ski trip just before all of this blew up. How about more reminders of happy times that will come back again some day?

Awesome breakfast spread.

I am not giving up hope that sometime this year we may be able to get back to doing the things we enjoyed out and about. I am just not going to force it if the time is not ready. HOPE!

#11747 3 months ago

Today everyone is a reporter. Todays conspiracy theory is tomorrows truth. People no longer need depend on 3 sources for their information, there are now millions.
Is the majority bulls%T? Probably. The small percentage of the ones that are true are heavily censored by Google, Facebook,Youtube, all the new major players.
They allow the bulls%t to propagate and try to shut down the truths they find distasteful. So the search for truth becomes more difficult, but a worthy cause.
