It’s too soon to be talking about whether China deserves blame for the coronavirus outbreak and efforts to shift the focus onto Beijing are a ‘distraction,’ according to Bill Gates, who criticized ‘incorrect and unfair things’ said about the Communist-run country. ‘China did a lot of things right at the beginning, like any country where a virus first shows up,' the Microsoft co-founder told CNN on Sunday. ‘They can look back and say where they missed some things.’ Gates, one of the world’s richest men, said that the US handled its COVID-19 response ‘particularly poorly’ compared to other countries that have minimized

Comments:

A distraction from what, Bill? Gates was more tolerable as a coercive intellectual property thief and peddler of mediocre software than as a globalist villain who wants to sell us vaccines. How much dope did Jefferey Epstein collect on him, and who pulls the strings?

What an @hole. Bill, do you think that you could have achieved the same level of personal success-could you have even created Microsoft!-in China, vs. the USA? You'd still be in that garage with your nerd friends instead of being the world's richest man. The absolute BEST the Chinese can do is to steal your ideas and copy our technology. The only edge they have, if you can cal it that, is a huge pool of cheap (=slave) labor. I think that you and WHO leader Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus should take a slow boat to China together. The Chinese herded their population into forced isolation after denying any problem even existed. And when you and your comrade get to Bejing, ask about the nice doctor that no one has seen for a couple of months.

So says a present day robber baron. A ruthless business owner who now wants redemption for those who he destroyed not un-like the Rockefellers or Carnegies. Was it worth it you jerk? Do you really think you can buy salvation? Of course your present day intentions may be even more nefarious than those in your past.

By getting into politics, and especially taking a position that over 80% of the American people disagree with, Chances are Gates is going to loose Microsoft a lot of customers. Gates must not be paying attention, as China recently falsely claimed to the world that the US Army spread the Chinese virus first at Wuhan and then around the world. How is that doing things right?

Gates made his fortune stealing from others to create MicroSoft. He is still stealing from others by playing footsie with China and the WHO (where he got his terrorist communist revolutionary friend placed into the head position) and lives are being lost as a result. He is the most vile, evil creature behind Soros.

Remember that infamous day when Bill Gates strutted out of the stage to unveil Windows 95. The computer promptly crashed! A bunch of IT types scurried onto the stage to get it running. I would have loved to have been on the MS campus after this hhappened. You can guess what broke out when Gates returned. Long time friends of mine, who's son was in coputer science at Washington State University told me. Don'e upgrade to 95. It's full of bugs. Wait until a revise version comes out. He said WSU had been beta testing 95 and his opinions were right on.

More than 200 deep-pocketed public companies secured at least $854.7million in loans from the relief fund Congress created to help small businesses devastated by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new analysis. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created to provide emergency loans to businesses with fewer than 500 employees and without access to other forms of capital to help keep workers on the job and bills paid on time. The initial $349billion allotment ran dry less than two weeks after the program opened on April 3, sparking outrage as early reports showed that dozens of multi-million dollar loans were granted to big public companies
