Coronavirus Has a Silver Lining

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 3/3/2020 4:32:31 AM

Disease is bad, but coronavirus has some positive aspects. It has exposed the frailty of the Communist Chinese regime, which reportedly is now sending some of the one million Uyghurs they have been holding in concentration camps to factories that have been vacated on account of the virus. No doubt Tom Friedman and other Democratic advocates for the Communist regime will hail this as one more sign of the superiority of autocratic states. Most Americans, happily, don’t see it that way. Gallup finds that for the first time in 13 years, most Americans think the U.S., not China, is the world’s leading economic power. They are right, of course, and someday

I might add that the other aspect of the silver lining is the awareness that our borders need some form of control or consistency or civility? I am not certain these are the words I am looking for. America's land, air, and sea are entryways and exits. We need to protect them and our people. Glad we have a President who is trying to keep America great. . .

It's pretty sad to see the self doubt Americans had that pretty much tracks BO's presidency. When you have a president that continually says the Country isn't all that exceptional, great, or good it is poison to its people. BO attempted to withdraw the US from the world stage because the US was "bad" for the rest of the world. When the president hates his Country, it's not surprising the people have doubts.

It was only two years after Chernobyl that the Soviet Union collapsed. It is not improbable that China will fracture into multiple sub-states with this virus as the trigger.

Think back to the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s - - when all the expert pundits - - the esteemed sovietologists and kremlinologists - - and assorted other international wizards - - all believed that the mighty Soviet Union would momentarily overtake the United States as the world's greatest power. There was only one man - - one man who was considered to be a buffoon - - who knew that this wan't true - - who knew how weak and anemic the commie regime was. And guess what? That buffoon - - our beloved Ronald Reagan - - was the only one who was right - - and all of the whiz-bangs were dead wrong. Reagan's strategy to defeat and wipe out the commies - - without firing a single shot - - was possibly the greatest political achievement of all time. Who really believes that today's geniuses are any brighter than those geniuses of yore?

Can this country supply the labor required for an industrial renaissance? I have some doubts as over my carrier I have known many business owners and without exception their biggest complaint was the difficulty of finding and hiring good employees. And I mean the basics like actually showing up for work on time or at all, the inability to pass a drug screen, working two days and quitting because it is too much like (you know) work. I have been told they can go through 50 to 100 applicants before they find someone with even the very basic skills or the desire. Another one,(I have no experience but make me a manager type crap.) Lets face it, we have a whole class of people in this country who just don't want to work.

Hell yes #5 & #7. I just went through replacing 60% of an ageing workforce and I can assure you that finding people who can show up five days a week, show up on time, and stay off their effing phones is challenge one two and three. One of my best workers took about six months to figure out that the work week includes Monday. You have to place your bets on who can be led into the adult world and who cannot. Oddly I did better with fresh HS graduates than "experienced" yet young people. If I washed out people in the first 90 days based on the same expectations and criteria that served me in the not so distant past I'd be nowhere yet. I had to adapt or fail. #1 Agree! Iranians are on our Southern border right now, if this doesn't turn the light on what will.

When I look at the coronavirus map, I see that the hotspots are states that have a lot of foreign immigrants...both Washington and California encourage that influx; Texas does not, but gets it anyway. Democrats love their globalism. Our uniparty politicians have been taking money from China for decades and now the high price will be paid. China can hold us hostage by withholding medical supplies and drugs. At least Trump has gotten us away from energy dependence on the middle east. Now is the time to get safe pharmaceutical production on site here in the U.S.

The corona virus also has another silver lining. It is spreading through the Iranian parliament with Khamenei's top advisor already having been dispatched due to the virus. Wonder how it is going in North Korea with Kimmie and his generals. Corona could be a game changer for China. I wonder how the virus just happened to "escape" from that bio-weapons lab in Wuhan.

A thousand people died of swine flu before The Holy Hawaiian released any funds to fight that flu and before he did anything whatsoever to combat that flu. Twelve thousand died from West Nile during The Holy Hawaiian's reign. Ever read or hear a negative Obama story about that while he was president? No. Trump put a travel ban on China in early January because of the corona virus and was lambasted by the Marxists, Marxist Republicans and of course the Marxist media as a xenophobe and racist. Now, he is being blamed for incompetence in his response to the corona virus with as of now, six Americans died. Yet, Trump is in the wrong with a deep state controlled CDC. And Powerline says it's good because Gallup has a poll wrt USA vs China's economic power as if a poll makes a nation's economy more or less powerful? Has THAT poll been reported by the MSM? Of course not. So, what the hell is the point of this article? Corona virus is good in some ways? Perfect.

Posters #5 and #7 are correct. #6: I was working part-time in college (about 45 years ago) for a large department store. I was talking with the store’s personnel manager one day, and another employee was talkng with us about the unemployment rate, which was then about 6%. The old personnel guy said “that means it’s 3%.” We asked how that could be. He said “I’ve been a personnel guy for 40 years, and I’m here to tell you, 3% of the population is unemployable!” Some thngs never change.

If you don’t like Mike Bloomberg, Elizabeth Warren, or Bernie Sanders, Super Tuesday night is just delightful so far. For the past few months, Americans have been living in a fascinating political-science experiment: how far could a campaign carry an uninspiring candidate with essentially unlimited spending and TV ads? Tonight, we got the answer: not very far at all! Bloomberg spent a half-billion dollars to win American Samoa and a handful of delegates here and there across 15 states. It is the most expensive failure in American political history. The 2020 Bloomberg campaign makes the past efforts of H. Ross Perot, Steve Forbes, Michael Huffington, and Jon Corzine look tightfisted.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Not to be confused with Pocahontas) arguably should end her presidential campaign after an embarrassing third-place finish in her home state of Massachusetts. As of 11 p.m. Eastern, former Vice President Joe Biden had won the state with 33 percent of the vote, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-USSR) behind him at 27 percent. Warren trailed at 22 percent, almost 100,000 votes behind Biden.(Snip for graphic)Not only did Warren lose her own state but she took third place, behind both the ostensible moderate Biden and the socialist Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders’s paranoid style 4 replies

Bernie Sanders’s campaign has been sounding the alarm. The “establishment,” worried sick about the Vermont socialist’s early successes, is conspiring to thwart his movement of “working people” by denying him the nomination. President Trump has echoed this theme. Indeed, his campaign claims, absurdly, that Sanders is the victim of a coup. It’s true that establishment Democrats are worried about Sanders being the Democratic nominee. It’s also true that socialists are worried that Sanders won’t win the nomination. What’s the problem? All factions and ideologies have the right to worry about the other faction or ideology gaining the upper hand. Conspiracies are problematic, but where is the conspiracy to deny Sanders the nomination?

Elizabeth Warren may not even win her own state tomorrow. Though a recent Boston Globe/WBZ TV/Suffolk University poll shows Warren neck-and-neck with Bernie Sanders in Massachusetts, FiveThirtyEight’s polling average shows Bernie Sanders with a five-point lead overall, and Warren’s lack of an obvious lead does not portend great things for her candidacy. Second place would be an ignominious result for Warren, and yet it would be her highest finish of the primary. Massachusetts remains the only Super Tuesday state that Warren could feasibly win.

If the measure of a successful election were only how quickly the results are released, then California would be a disaster.

To put it in perspective, there were 155 pledged delegates available in the race's first four contests, which were the obsession of the candidates, voters, pundits and political prognosticators for the month of February. On Super Tuesday, 1,344 delegates are for the taking – as well as 13 delegates representing Americans abroad, who have a week to vote beginning Tuesday.

Despite a deluge of debate-night gaffes and sagging poll numbers, Joe Biden is poised to take on Bernie Sanders virtually head to head on Super Tuesday — thanks in large part to a Democratic Party establishment that fears having the socialist Sanders atop its 2020 ticket, insiders said Monday. Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar suspended their campaigns on Sunday and Monday, respectively, and said they would endorse fellow moderate Biden, in a last-ditch effort to stop the Vermont senator, who appeared to be steam-rolling toward big wins in delegate-rich states like California and Texas.

Bernie Sanders‘ hard-left sympathies just keep bubbling up like an overheated pot of red stew. He announced this past week his $1.5 trillion plan for “universal” free child care. Even the “rich” would qualify for it. Would stay-at-home parents get any help? You are such a foolish child. The Vermont socialist’s plan goes beyond even Elizabeth Warren’s and Pete Buttigieg’s means-tested schemes, which would allegedly cost taxpayers “only” $700 billion. Speaking of Mayor Pete, he welcomed a 9-year-old boy on stage to “come out” and identify as homosexual. Not every Marxist assault on our way of life involves tax-and-spend economics.

Bernie Sanders just lost his first primary of 2020. He’ll lose a few more on Tuesday. But as of now, in terms of delegates and polling alike, Bernie Sanders remains the Democratic front-runner. And Joe Biden has wound up, ironically, not as the frontrunner but as the ‘Stop Bernie!’ candidate. South Carolina was Biden’s first primary win in any of the presidential races he’s ever run, which stretch back to 1988. He’s had his eye on the White House for a very long time, and voters have consistently found other Democrats more compelling — other Democrats like Michael Dukakis, not just other Democrats like Barack Obama.
