    I'll have to listen to it a few times, I'm not good with understanding accented speech. But the gist is alarming, to say the least.
    • “Weakness is refusing to take responsibility for your own actions, weakness is pointing your finger at someone else in a time of crisis." — Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, blaming Trump.
    • "We hold these truths to be self evident. All men and women created by the, you know, you know, the thing." —Joe Biden, explaining the Creator.
    • "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." —Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.
    • “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.
    • "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    I've heard of this before. I'd like to see her evidence. Biology is not really my thing but I can follow that type of research fairly well.

    What would be telling is if this manufactured virus had less of an impact on Han Chinese than other groups (the Chinese don't care about non-Han ethnicities). One of the major reasons few people have used engineered bio weapons is that they have a distressing tendency to sicken or kill anybody - not just the enemy.

    While China has a lot of people to "spare", I guess, their economy is dependent on foreign money. If foreigners aren't buying, their own economy suffers. Not to mention that China has to import a huge amount of basic cereal grains to meet demands. If the world's farmers all drop dead or decide not sell out of suspicion or revenge, a lot of China will just starve. They can't meet domestic demands for staple foods. Too much of the population is urbanized and too little of the land can be used for factory-style farming even if the government could force city-dwellers into farming.

    While this thing has damaged economies around the world, those economies keep China afloat. Their holdings in Africa and South America can't make up for that.

    So, what would the end game be? A test run of some kind? A genuine lab error?

    A virus that acts very differently from its 'relatives' makes it likely that it was engineered.
    If she is correct that it could not have happened naturally, then that seals it.

    I'm going with a mistaken release from the Wuhan lab that has documented sloppy protocol problems.

    Why it was engineered is pure guess work. It could have been a precursor of a more specific pathogen as a biological weopen.

    But the Chinese government took extraordinary steps to keep it isolated from the rest of China, all the while proclaiming it couldn't be passed from human to human knowing that it was, but allowing international flights to and from Wuhan to take place.

    At the very, very least, the Chinese were extremely careless. At the other end they would be called out for genocide.

    and lost …
    But the Republicans are racist.

    Well that sucks. Too bad we are destroying international institutions or we could do something about this.

    What institutions are being destroyed and what could "we" be doing if they were not being destroyed? Be specific.
    "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

    Time will tell.
