This coronavirus in China
anyone else worried? 9 dead so far.

CNY soon so the virus will spread very quickly if they cannot control it. It'll be in Europe by the end of CNY if not earlier.

is this the end of humanity?

Then you'll force chav mothers everywhere to choose between school uniforms for their brats or feeding them with a supersized happy meal every day.

Human rights lawyers everywhere will be on the case.

A 100% tariff on all CCP imports might help to focus minds.

Isn’t a vast majority of this country’s debt actually borrowed from UK citizens?

Pension funds etc.

If so, surely the debt will always need to be paid while we borrow.

Re: This coronavirus in China
If Branded is right and debt will never get repaid, then maybe it's the right time to fuck the Chinese off and tell them to swivel for the money they're owed.

The Chinese have got off very lightly haven't they considering the colossal World wide fuck up this has all caused.

I would say we are still steaming ahead on the idea of constant growth and more capital than you can shake a stick at.

If we're veering off into that area then we've only just started to scrape the surface of taking the human element out of "work".

Administrative (and middle management) jobs that can be done remotely soon won't need anybody to do them at all. AI is steaming ahead (yet the natural counterbalance, "common sense" is roaring off in the opposite direction, all in the name of woke).

Re: This coronavirus in China

We have technologies that have completely changed what work is. Work is nothing like what it was except picking fruit and veg and a few other jobs like cleaning and caring etc.

In a World where most jobs are just made up bollocks most people do not need to work. Or, we share the little actual work required out. Pushing pens around a desk is not work.

We have consistently printed more and more money for two hundred years. The idea anything gets paid back is an absolute fucking lie.

Re: This coronavirus in China
...oh, and as for "leaving a future generation to pay for all this shit". I spent the first half of my working life paying for a fucking war that ended over a decade before I was born - as did most of my peers, and we STILL managed to deliver the comfortable society YOU are currently enjoying, that some people claim the next generation will not now benefit from.

Fucking drama queens, the lot of you. Amateur ones, at that.

The Post

Perhaps the appeal of Andrew Cuomo was that for liberals he was the anti-Trump. Whereas the president seemed rash, chaotic and uncaring, the governor of New York exuded a sense of competent authority. His Covid briefings were so popular among liberal Americans that he was awarded an Emmy. “With all of this adulation that you’re getting for doing your job, are you thinking about running for President?” asked CNN presenter Chris Cuomo, who, conveniently, is his brother. No, said Cuomo, prompting howls of disappointment from the media.

But a sense of competence is exactly that. It has become increasingly obvious that Cuomo’s assured, authoritative bearing obscured significant mismanagement and stonking egotism. Journalists who were once gushing “Cuomosexuals” are now belatedly, shamefacedly having second thoughts.

The Wall Street Journal tells us that Cuomo’s top advisers “pushed state health officials to strip a public report of data showing that more nursing-home residents had died of Covid-19 than the administration had acknowledged.” Earlier this year, in January, a report by the New York attorney general accused Cuomo’s administration of dramatically undercounting deaths from Covid-19. The attorney general suggested that the administration’s insistence that nursing homes must not refuse patients admission on the basis of their being infected with the virus may have increased the risk of harm.

It would be wrong to charge Cuomo with being some kind of devious master manipulator. The sad truth is that the talking head brigade were never conned as much as they conned themselves. Outliers like ProPublica were reporting on Cuomo’s dangerous policies last year, and Right-wing elevation of such reportage forced Cuomo to respond in his 2020 book American Crisis.

In that book, which Cuomo wrote while he was apparently guiding New York through the pandemic, the governor claimed:

New York State never demanded or directed that any nursing home accept a COVID-positive patient. The Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services guidance was that a nursing home should continue to accept patients from hospitals where COVID-19 was present, and not discriminate against a COVID-positive person. The state followed the guidance, stating that nursing homes should not reject a patient “solely on the basis” of COVID status.
Any idiot could see how disingenuous this was. To tell nursing homes not to reject patients on the basis of Covid status is to tell them that they must either accept such patients or accept no patients at all. Granted, it would be preposterous to place all of the blame for Covid deaths in nursing homes on Governor Cuomo. Nursing homes across the world have struggled during the pandemic because members of staff have introduced the virus. But there are compelling reasons to believe that Cuomo’s directive exacerbated the situation, and that his administration undercounted deaths. It is therefore shocking to see how few journalists were interested in asking obvious questions.

Re: This coronavirus in China
How about stay at home unless you can prove you won't be infecting anybody?

Does a government not have a responsibility over all else to protect it's citizens?

That includes from fucknuts coughing and spluttering their way about the country exercising their right to do so as if it somehow trumps others to exercise a similar right to be out and about and not be deliberately placed at risk of infection.

My kids won't "lose out" on anything, they'll just adapt and learn to work/play in a slightly different manner until Covid-19 is managed in the same way as 'flu.

If you're scared of infection stay home and/or wear as many masks as you like. This isn't difficult.

Free choice to turn yourself into a walking infection?

Free choice to infect other people who may die from your exercise of free choice?

Re: This coronavirus in China
Anyone else noticed the vitriol aimed towards Texas and Mississippi now they've removed mask mandates and allowed businesses to reopen etc.?

Michael Moore even insinuating its somehow racist.

Wear a mask if you want. Stay home if you want. Just don't coerce anyone else into doing anything. Should have been that way from the start.

For some reason these lockdown hawks really hate the concept of free choice.

Of course its not true. But Mike's take on this just encapsulates his entire generation's mindset and take on this entire situation. Pure "I'm alright Jack" and more than happy throw his children and grandchildren under the bus to enjoy a bit of comfort now, knowing full well the freedom he built his life on could just be a relic to future generations if this keeps going where its going. And he'll call YOU selfish for calling it out.

Not one of the people supporting this bollocks is asking where all this free money is coming from. And that should tell you everything.

As an aside, CARTA claims that the only known animal proto-language imperative is "come and get fucked", although it occurs amongst both bonobos and gorillas (it's a gesture, not a vocalisation).

Amuses me that in the updated introductory graphic, the three humans are wearing masks and the three apes aren't.
