    Boy that sure makes the decision easy. Maybe the choice for the VP will be a deciding factor. Pence, if Trump keeps him, or what has been promised by Biden, a woman who will be undoubtedly a better choice than Pence.
    Yes obviously there are only two political parties at play,,. What I was referring to is the the type of "political system" e.g. a Representative Democracy or a Dictatorial Ideocracy with a corrupt State & Justice department or some other variation,,!!

    You want heavy-handed, Lag? Check out what is going on in Portland, Oregon. Apparently Trump has sent in his goon squad to sweep up protesters, both violent and not. Not that I have all that much sympathy for violent protesters and anarchists, but according to a newspaper article that I read today apparently lots of people are being randomly pulled off the street and stuffed into unmarked vans by military types with no badges and taken to holding cells for a few hours.

    Richard,,,,,,,Very scary, & similar to the Trump Bible walk across Lafayette Park to St. John's Church after William Barr cleared the riff raff out with tear gas and smoke grenades and armed police with no markings,,.
    I know that folks have got a belly full of bad news however this is not the time to take your eye off the ball,,. Three more months is one thing but four more years is something all together different,,!!

    Not Brown shirts but Camo shirts, de riguer fashion now. Brown shirt mentality though. Must be the group that pay allegiance to the Leader not the country.

    Everyone is going crazy in California. (Well, what else is new? ). Last night on the TV news there was a report about the new owner of an Applebees Restaurant (I missed in what town, but I am sure it is out in the boondocks, somewhere) not allowing people to come into the facility unless they take off their mask. One elderly woman who lives nearby was interviewed and said that she was fine with that. She said that she never wears a mask and isn't sick.

    Then there was another story about a group of California churches defying the governor's order not allowing indoor worshiping. They said it was their Constitutional right to worship indoors and sing and chant and lets see him just try to send in his troops to pull them off of their pews.

    At the same time about 100 (mostly white) BLM protesters shut down the 4-lane Highway 17 freeway, connecting San Jose to the Santa Cruz beaches, on Sunday for 90 minutes, backing up traffic for miles in all directions. The say they were doing so to bring attention to the (supposedly all white and rich) town of Los Gatos (whose residents are always complaining about people going to Santa Cruz that using their local streets to bypass traffic jams on the adjacent freeway). I bet that showed them who is running things around there.

    And so it goes on a sunny Sunday in nutty People's Republic of Kalifornia.

    This thread still seems to be active for me. However, I just noticed a box that says to "Re-open this thread after you submit your message". So I checked it. Give it a try now.

    Richard this thread indeed seems to have come back from the dead. "Give it a try, can't hurt, might help".

    Like Houdini, it was shackled in a dramatic display of magic and effrontery, but the threadlock has been bubble-burst reversed (“Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”)

    May....June...July

    Like a miracle. Open it up I say. Lets keep it open...

    Mr Trump, how do you respond to claims that Iran may have 25 million COVID-19 cases?

    “Iran? Where is that Mike? Oh, that Iran. Is that how they say it: I-RAN? Ok. They make these claims but we’re doing the tests and we are number ONE and nobody is doing better than US, the US, right? We’ve been blaming CHIIINA for so long and I was blaming them before anybody knew they needed blaming coz I could see it, right? And now I-RAN thinks they can come and take it away from us? No way they can do that. I said to Mike – we were in the bunker hiding from BLM terROARists – I said Mike, you know we could’ve taken them, the Iranians. We had then in the ‘80s and the ‘90s and then there was that thing with the Towers in New York. They were there and the penta-gone. Rouhani... noboby even knows him.

    But we could have taken them in the ‘80s. I would have been a general, really I was or should have been. I served. I served my country – it was an honour to serve with those fighting men and women. So I was a general, or would have been, but I had that foot thing. The spurs, like they are bad really bad, and here, I’ll show you. Mike, get my shoos, yeah and the sox, take them off. See, just here – that’s what I call the heel and you can see the spurs. No, not there Mike, point to another spot. Ok, so you’ve all seen the spurs now, right? So there’s no denying it, so I would have been a general. Medals, I would have sooo many medals, nobody has or would have more medals than me. But the feet.

    So then I was on the ‘Appren-tice’, The Apprentice. Did you see it? Everybody did it was great and the ratings were like a COVID-19 pandemic, like Michigan with a bullet. So after the Apprentice they made me President, so now I can release fire and fury on anybody I want. White or black, good people on both sides. I didn’t need to enlist I RAN, I RAN, I RAN, but now if the GREAT American people can come together and get close like Florida we can beat Iran. I don’t like the mask.”

    The coronavirus has hit the economy and business very hard. I personally would not have been able to handle all my paperwork and accounting if I hadn't found accounting services from Hong Kong during this difficult period. Thanks to this service, now my business is starting to get better.

    "So I took the test. I say, make Biden take the test. They call it like, its like they call it a 'Cognitive Assessment' and it comes from Montreal. Montreal is in Canada. Not everyone knows that. But I did, ok? I knew it was there, already, before the test. CAN-A-DA. Let’s do it now, we can get the test. You see, it’s a very difficult test, there’s like 35 questions.

    But Mr Trump one of the questions was to identify a picture of an elephant…

    “I know its an elephant, right? I know an elephant when I see one, but this elephant was, like really really small. Ok, they put the elephant picture on just a piece of paper and I know that an elephant is really really big, so how did they get the picture to fit on a piece of paper? It’s a very hard test, but I got 100% of the total and that was like 30 questions and I aced it.”

    “Mike and I, we practiced the test coz, like I’m a superbrain and he said, ‘Now, Mr President there will be some tough ones’ so we looked at some elephants and he showed me one of a camel. A camel, like, who’s ever seen a camel before? And he said – Mike - he said, 'but they don’t have spots Mr President, so be careful of the giraffe, it can get real tricky'. But I aced it, and not just because I’m the President. The doctors said it was unbelievable, my score. They’d never had a score score like that, Ok? 40 questions right, they’ve never seen that. Maybe 42, could’ve been, maybe more. There were a laht.”

    And another question was ‘count backward from 100’.

    Yeah, the first three questions are easy, but you should try the last five. It’s a difficult test. Like, when you start at 100 and then start counting backwards from the start at 100, it’s a tough test depending on where you start, a hundred is a laht, there’s a laht of numbers in there, and they change when you start counting them, like some have a 9 and some have a 4 so it’s a hard test.

    Biden couldn’t do it, even if he tried. I’m a superbrain, everyone told me “Mr President, you really are a superbrain, ok?”

    Is that my hat? I can’t find my hat. And who's mask is this? It says MAGA. Who's MAGA and why is he sitting in my chair?”.

    +1 on the funny Trump stuff Peter. I looked forward my monthly dose of Alfred E. Neumann, and still have copies from about number 8 to 80 (UK version) in my loft, all well thumbed of course so not worth anything.

    I challenge you all to make 10 posts about coronavirus without mentioning Trump, or his administration. This thread isn't about the coronavirus, it's just another Trump-bashing thread. And it is boring. Especially from people who don't live in the USA.


    So here's a for real question posed in another forum that actually is worth pondering. Why is it the coronavirus hasn't decimated the homeless population? They live in unsanitary conditions. Their health is poor. They are packed in close proximity with other homeless people. Yet the homeless people are not seeming to die in large numbers.

    And the rioting (aka peaceful protesting) is not producing large numbers of coronavirus cases or deaths (by the virus). Portland has been going amuck for 8 weeks now...more than time enough for the virus to have swept through them all.

    Ok, I'll have a crack at a post that doesn't mention Mr TP. Ahh, dammit. Let me start again.

    How's about this Daboo. I challenge you to post a post about the corona virus(sic) that doesn't contain any of your usual inane questions that start with;

    How come...;

    I don't understand...;

    If that's the case....;

    Who said....; or

    Why?

    Like try reading something less than two thousand years old not written in Hebrew or translated from the original Arabic, and especially anything written from INSIDE the WALL. Read, think and contribute, just a widdle smidge for once. Rather than just running around all wobbly and spraying racial hate and cheese in equal portions, try to find something constructive to write. [Without mentioning the WALL, ok?]

    And anyway, what's with all this xenophobia all of a sudden? Go ahead, I'll wait for you to get the dictionary (try Google, its quicker).........back again and fully educated?

    How can you, on an international forum about a bike from ze Cherman way of liffe in Chermany, tell peeps that they have to be in your dang darn it country to pipe up. If the grate ole US of A weren't the laughing stock of the world, we would have less to, well, laugh at. Ven I zay vee I mean vee outzide off zer vall.

    Its not just laughing. Look I'll be serious and not poke fun of the dotards for a minute. This thread is over 1000 posts long, whether that bores* you not. I don't think that it is the place for a snippity gibbit moderator administrator to tell people to be more entertaining, nor even interesting*.

    * you have made it patently clear that with respect to the coronavirus making millions sick and hundreds of thousands croak that you find it interesting and exciting to watch the little graves with the little boxes dropping in 6 feet under, all the while seeing it as a time of hope, this thing that causes the rest of humanity to mourn. Below are the words from the wise lest you think I was making this up:

    Some will take this as "doom and gloom". To me, it isn't. It is hope. I know there's a plan. I know where I'm going when I die. And so I find this interesting, and exciting.

    Anyway, getting back to your premise. Try checking facts rather than just spewing more lets just say 'other forum' vomit.

    https://www.factcheck.org/2020/05/fa...-the-homeless/

    Try reading, thinking and contributing more than just another coat of many colours chunk of right wing Christofascist gibberish. Why not fact-check those narrow minded dotard posts that waylay you in your wanderings on the net?

    And for bonus points and without looking up the dictionary (or Google or Yahoo booyah) what do you mean by "decimate", mate?

    Done.

    And now it's time for Daboo to post one, just one intelligent post about SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 or the coronavirus.

    Chris if you find it boring or too much of a challenge, perhaps you could skip over this thread.

    Easy there, Peter. You need to calm down a bit. I realize that the pandemic is something that you take very seriously, but there is no need to needle Daboo, or anyone else for that matter, regarding their views on the subject. Just let each of us express our thoughts and you do the same without making a direct attack and picking apart what anyone posts. This is a motorcycle forum not a political forum and while I think this thread is important to let others know about the latest information regarding the Corona virus, what is being done to alleviate it and how we can protect ourselves against getting the virus, there is no need to argue about our conflicting thoughts regarding how it is impacting each of us. Let everyone who wants to make a comment regarding the subject do so without feeling that they will be criticized for their views. That just stifles the conversation.

    So I did what he asked. No attack. Good people, on both sides.

    And by the way Richard, Chris challenged ALL of us to do the 10 post thing, so you'd better hop to it with another 9. Actually, your post just here had nothing to do with COVID, so you better start counting to 10 from your next one.

    You could look back in your old stuff and drag out a bunch of those "How come in MY county I have to ________, but in the NEXT county they only have to _____?" posts.

    But Peter, why do you have to go out of your way to needle Chris? Can't you just cool off and take it easy for a while? Just because you might be following the letter of the Grownup section rules, doesn't mean you have to poke people with a stick. What do you get satisfaction out of stirring the pot?

    Don't you have anything better to do to occupy your time?

    Chris just wanders in to the thread about a very important topic (inside and out side the wall. Good people, on both sides) and drops ridiculous denialist outdated conspiracy theory links and clips and challenges. Oh, and shuts threads, divides threads and bans people wild willy nilly. Then with absolutely no constructive contribution lays out a challenge, so I answered the challenge.

    Don't lecture me on the needle, ok? This is the "Corona Virus" thread, and I've contributed much in the way of sensible discourse.

    Oh and in case you've been living under a rock, those 10 posts and the links within are all but a keystroke away on the world wide web, the gathering of such taking but a minute of time.

    Get the thread back on track, lets stop talking about self-serving megalomaniacs hell bent on imposing executive orders and firing any who dare to dissent.

    Trump now says it’s patriotic to wear a mask. Why the about face?
    How do you suppose this benefits him. Because that’s the only reason he would this.
    What about all the deaths in the US up until now?

    I think he has decided that promoting wearing a mask may help his reelection campaign. Also he might have been affected by his visit to the military hospital last week when he finally decided to wear a mask. Likely that was due to pressure from the hospital doctors who were concerned about the veterans in the hospital catching the virus. As you know he has always said that he is a big supporter of the military and veterans. (In spite of his past history. )

    Been away on a road trip however this C19 hasn't been away,,. Very tricky, we started opening things up here as well and low and behold some young ladies went on holidays from the next province and contracted the virus along the way,,. They went to the bar and infected dozens in the bar and then the next day to the exercise club and finished things off,,. Now there back home tucked away and we have the worst out break in months,,. Pretty mundane #'s compared to down south where I read the morgues are filling up,,. Old Trump pulled the face mask out because that all they have, what an Idiot,,.

    Over 60 test positive cases of COVID-19 have now been linked to the Kelowna, B.C. cluster which began around Canada Day as tourists flocked to the sunny tourist hot spot in the Interior. Health officials are seeing growth in the number of cases involving young people over the past few weeks.

    We are able to do contact tracing here so we can usually figure out where its coming from and put some preventative actions in place,,. We had been down to under 10 cases per day for a while,,.

    POTUS - "So I've been taking the hydroxy. HydroxyCHLORoquine. And the zinc, ya have to take the zinc and zithromycin which I call Z-pack because of the Z. SO I've been taking that or took that for about 2 weeks and I didn't get sick and tested negative, which was nice. Malaria, its a very bad disease, terrible. And Lupus, I don't know much about lupus, but it sounds bad too. So with the malaria - and its been around for a long time, like 60 years and the zpack and the hydroxy have stopped malaria in the US, just this week we stopped it. I had the malaria test too and I don't have that so its stopped and I stopped it first. But its not about me, Mike and the task force have done a tremendous job"

    Big Problemo on our Southern Boarder;

    As the volume of travelers entering Canada through the U.S. has increased in recent weeks, public health officials are being placed at land borders to bolster screening for COVID-19.

    The news follows a surge in new cases of COVID-19 in the U.S., with large daily increases in some of the country's most populous states. That uptick is paired with an increase in traffic across the international border at airports and land crossings, as restrictions are loosened.

    Travel across the border has been linked to a new cluster of cases in Prince Edward Island tied to an individual who came from the U.S. with a student visa.

    According to new data from the Canada Border Services Agency, more than 10,000 U.S. citizens have been turned away at the Canadian border during the pandemic — and almost half of them were hoping to enter Canada to shop, go sightseeing or simply for recreation.

    While half of the U.S. citizens were turned back for “other” reasons, which the CBSA did not expand on, a little over 2,700 citizens had to turn back when they said they were hoping to cross the border for "tourism" or "sightseeing." More than 1,200 were rejected after revealing their trip was recreational in nature.

    "When US sends its people, they’re not sending their best," "They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with them,,. They’re Covid infected. There drinking disinfectant. They’re bringing Drugs. They don't follow simple Health standards. And some, I assume, are good people."

    What we need is to build a Great Wall, Strong, Tall and Impregnable, and get the US to pay for it,,!!

    Mr Trump, how do you respond to the reports of Americans fleeing our country and attempting to reach safety in Canada?

    "Well, first of all I don't believe it. There aren't - you have to understand it is cold in Canada so, and....right? They wouldn't go there because of the cold and the virus. They call it the Chinese virus or some other name, but they have it in Canada and it is strong there, the virus. It beats the test so nobody should go there especially if they have had a test or a positive or even if they haven't had a test - and the US tests are the best. We had a lot of people working on that. They had the equipment, the best, just the best equipment. And they were tremendous people so they got it done early, before France and the Italians weren't ready and they didn't see it coming so our tests were the best. The best test, ok? Nobody else has them so no Americans are going to Canada for the test - it makes no sense. Why do that? And some have had a negative and feel like a vacation so they can go. We're Americans and every country in the world likes us, see? We're welcome all over and we have the PANdemIC under control. We have great numbers and its heading down fast and soon will be gone, just gone. And so if they want a vacation they can go and maybe after a while come back, or stay. Tomorrow we're thinking that I may need to do an executive order saying they can go or anyone who wants to can, and I can sign the paper. I have a sharpie for that and then I can sign it. And we have a wall up there already, if we need it. So we have both."

    This second wave is a lot worse than the first one, especially in VIC. The figures have totally surpassed any from the first wave. Stage 4 Lock-down and curfews in Melbourne, stage 3 and mandatory masks for the rest of the state. We even have to have a special permit for any local work related travel. Thankfully I am one of the lucky ones that still have work to go on with.
    I am even more cautious with where I go and the precautions I take, now that I have these lung issues.

    Thankfully you're out in Gippsland Steve, so relatively COVID-free.

    Victoria has had a massive increase in cases over the last 6 weeks and is by far the worst-affected state in Australia. Since the beginning of the pandemic total cases now at 13500 and deaths at 170 and now the curve looks like this compared to other Aussie states and territories:









    For comparison with a similar population and land area, Minnesota in the USA has had 59,000 cases and 1700 deaths to date.

    Pete, it's getting worse with 7 cases in the Valley now, mostly from people not following the original restrictions in the Melbourne area when the numbers started rising again.

Tomorrow we're thinking that I may need to do an executive order saying they can go or anyone who wants to can, and I can sign the paper. I have a sharpie for that and then I can sign it. And we have a wall up there already, if we need it. So we have both."

    I read the comments. The video isn't about the coronavirus. It's about Trump. The comments say it is from "Republican Voters Against Trump".

    Couldn't meet the challenge, could you?

    Hey Chris, step down from your high horse. You couldn't meet the challenge, oh happy clapper. You have yet again come along and joined the 'Corona Virus' thread and contributed nothing, nada, zippo.

    This is a thread oh scholar, it meanders and picks up from posts before. You are stuck like an idolator on your own post twenty or so above. I met the challenge. What no cookie for me budbud? Lag has posted here in context (big word for you, it has an 'x'). So why not wander off, read something from a different book, take your MAGA hat off to let your brain breathe and contribute like a big boy, big boy?


    Laughed at and pitied, the video said. Yo yabadabadoo look at this banana:
