The reason we won't have a college football season and may not have basketball either, is because of the American dumb-as-a-box-of-rocks right wing and our even dumber than that president. To summarize:
  • Yes, coronavirus started in China, but, according to experts on viruses (and, no, right wingers, listening to talk radio does not make you an expert) it was not released from a laboratory.
  • Yes, China covered up and lied about the seriousness of the coronavirus, because that is how authoritarian governments react to any occurrence that makes them look bad. Which explains why Trump reacted the same way once it reached America.
  • No, the fact that the Chinese government lied about the seriousness of the coronavirus epidemic in their country, does not excuse Trump's lies about the seriousness of it in our country.
  • Yes, we could have had college sports, and other normal activities of a normal country, if we had an effective early lockdown like in other countries, which halted the spread of the virus.
  • No, we didn't have that, because the right wing in this country cannot control their dumbness long enough to shut up and put on a mask.
  • Yes, the coronavirus is going to rampage through this country for years after it has been tamped down in other countries because they don't have to contend with the American right wing which has embraced dumbness as a virtue.
  • No, there is no hope for us, because the only principle the American right wing knows is to wait for the left wing to take a stand, then to take the opposite one. Unfortunately, that means when the left creates a strategy to save our country from the pandemic, the right will fight like hell to destroy it, and be proud as hell of themselves while they do it.
Damn, do I hate the right wing in this country. UK was going to have a hell of a football team and an even better basketball team.

And no, left wing doesn't mean socialist. The right wing in this country has moved so far to the right they believe only in prosperity for the wealthiest, while the rest of us go begging. Left wing in this country at this time means people who believe in the old-fashioned notion there should still be a middle class and a working class and upward mobility should still be possible with hard work. Out-dated notions, I know.

Seriously? The left doesn’t care Anymore than the right about the middle class. What the hell is the middle class anyway? The left has eroded the working class with promise of free stuff. The right just merely tries to bait us with “tax cuts”. God the public are full of stupid people!

Peaceful is being out weighed by the violence, looting and the stupidity. What is the real end game here? Defund police? Ya that makes sense! Smh
sooo much violence. 25ish people have died in the riots while hundreds of thousands of people marched peacefully. The horror, the horror!

only a trump cult member would be aghast over this while thinking 165k Covid deaths ain’t no thing. Unreal.

what's hard to believe is that I just read through 2 pages of COVID posts...waded through the inevitable pro/anti Trump/BIden/FoxNews/CNN crap...and not one single mention of China.

I guess when every major nation in the world is in debt to the tune of trillions to you...you get to wash the blood off your hands quickly.

Don't forget who got us into this mess. It wasn't Trump. Or Biden. Or either party. Or any major media news outlet.

China hid the truth from the world for months, with the direct assistance of the corrupt WHO. China hoarded PPE in Feb/Mar to profit from our dire need. They halted domestic air travel when this bug got out but continued to launch this virus throughout the world via international flights leaving the mainland. Spin it however you want....any other nation would be getting called to the Hague and accused of war crimes for this.

This did not come from a bowl of bat soup at a local Wuhan market. It came from the Level 4 Viral superlab just down the road. Yet many in the news still try to spin the wet market story. Those who still choose to believe it are sheeple.

Why is China being given a free pass? Because they have all the power, in the form of international debt and manufacturing capabilities.

The world sold their soul to the CCP 25 yrs ago. We are now paying the price.
Bump....

Chicago-bound Hoosier hits the nail on the head...

It's too bad so many have lost their focus on who caused this pandemic to begin with...

Have you ever thought about what restricting traffic into and out of New York would mean? Think about it!
Phones, teleconference, emails, zoom, etc for 30 days would have been a great idea. Sending New Yorkers all around the uninfected USA, not a good idea. Business and pleasure travellers coming into infected NY those first 30 days, not a good idea.

lol. So much outrage over riots but not one damn “smh” over 165k dead and climbing. Good humaning, brah
I’m guessing you are early 20’s still in moms basement by your “brah” comment. So go join your antifa pansies and go loot and destroy. I have no use for people like yourself.

also a pandemic isn’t easily controlled. Looting, stealing, vandalizing is a choice. Maybe if your business was ruined by these idiots you would have a different outlook. The world is all about Choices young man.

You are correct Victor....We are more divided as a country than i have ever seen. politically and race. We are required to pay taxes for the poor or those that won't work with the left and the right cares only about thew rich.

Except the pandemic was controlled in pretty much every country far better than in trump’s America. And looting, vandalizing, are choices made by very few. But that’s among the many things you wouldn’t know if you got your news from fox.
Lol...it was? It doesn’t just go away. Remember New Zealand came out and said it was eradicated? Well 2 days later they closed down again. The left have people believe the sky has fallen and the right says it’s all good. The media just reports the extremes to fill a political agenda.

Have you been to these cities to see the damage? Also is our pandemic worse because of the testing? Or the stage 4 cancer person dying and they say it was a covid death? Our numbers are not accurate. My brother got a positive test in mail even though he never got tested.

No, no!, and I doubt it very, very much. Are those the things you have to believe now in order to wear your maga cap?

Every criticism here about Trump is largely true. And as bad as he is, he's still better than the looney far left DNC. That's why they're trying to make the election about racism and covid. What will higher taxes, higher energy prices and healthcare coverage for illegals (just to name a few of their misguided policies) do to our economy struggling to recover from this crisis?

No the election is about trump! His tax cut for the wealthy was digging us a very deep hole. Now trump’s incompetence is making it a whole lot worse. If he’s elected for four years the country will be unrecognizable. And Not in a good way! If you love America vote for Biden!

Biden is a freaking puppet for the progressive socialist movement. People will be voting for Harris not Biden. Left agenda is a scary future for this country. Our economy will be a mess.

I usually agree with you bball wise, but Trump is a Hitler game show host that needs to be stopped. I am not very liberal, not pro-choice, not a lot of things that Trump supporters like to paint people by. But the overt race baiting, grabbing by the pussy stuff, the tweeting, it's not presidential, and it obvious that he wants to qualify based on staying at a Holiday Inn Express ... but oh wait, we can't even do that because he's mishandled things so badly. Just wait ... my wife is a educator and teachers and their families are scared of this shit. It's a science experiment that I'd give 2-3 weeks and then we'll see lockdowns again all because this big fat a-hole cares about water pressure in the shower more than the country!

Who is radical? Biden is not my favorite choice, nor Harris. I would prefer a real republican like Bill Weld or even Mitt Romney again ... someone with integrity. However; they are not radical, they're both centrists and many democratic pundits are upset that they aren't very radical and won't push very hard for the extreme left (which I have problems with too). Trump is a Hitler though, it needs to stop. How can you be a proud American that defends his behavior? He is just racist and disgusting and it is right in your face, he makes GWB sound like Winston Churchill and that's hard.

I will gladly pay more tax for 4 years to not have trump. Some of the left policies give too much to people that don't deserve it, and enable a lot of shit. Like I have said before, I'd vote for any of the other Republicans that ran 4 years ago against trump in the primaries over Biden. But Trump is a moron. He is just an idiot. He is a reality TV star that has wrecked the Republican image. It is a joke now. A ****ing Hill billy that barely got his GED is the poster child for the republican party. Then you have the rich country club guys that just are silent, when you ask them about their fearless leader. They don't have comebacks that they really believe, they just paint the left as crazy.... WTF is trump??? He is so unpresidential it is sickening. The worst person ever to be in charge when a pandemic hits, I mean that isn't debatable. He has instilled no confidence to the American people. God he sucks.
