E Las Vegas Pandemic Disappeared. Trump Knew

and:

China believes it has a responsibility to push its economy forward because it has so many people to take care of. It has not proven to be a belligerent nation and has certainly not engaged in or started anywhere near the wars that involved the USA. And China has most of the upwardly mobile customers in the world. The World Bank said it has raised 700 million Chinese out of poverty. 

The South China Sea is a hot spot, due to the United States claim that it is necessary for keeping the balance of power in the Western Pacific. Then we complain when our ships are harassed. We have bases all over the world rarely publicized to the American people. We can't afford them. Yet we have to mess with the South China Sea?

What wars are being fought by China? Historically, China has never been nearly as aggressive as has the USA. We keep our neighbors poor. They at least attempt belt and road. We are the weakest and most dangerous link in world affairs because we are the most powerful nation.

When we were on our game, we did some good things for the world, like the Marshall Plan and helping Japan. But there is a new kid on the block that is interested in economics more than power, and we need to quit being so paranoid and take the tariffs off and act like a normal nation. Free trade allows for efficiency and growth in the world economy.

Update 11: Las Vegas did not get Coronavirus from too many Chinese through the Chinese New Year. Our infections most likely came from the East Coast and NYC! The West Coast seems to have the pandemic under control although Las Vegas cases are still growing. The east coast and really, east of the Mississippi is at a critical time.

Sounds likely.

Update 10: The FDA has just approved the malaria drug for treatment of Coronavirus. It is in short supply. Only take it from a physician!

Update 9: NYC lacks medical equipment. With the hospitals filling, equipment becomes crucial for any effort to limit damage to victims. Trump is talking about opening the country by April 19th. Unless NYC and other hotspots are controlled, that date may be way too soon. Derivatives bets on Wall Street may be massive. But health must come first. Many of us underestimated the virus.

Did you see the report that came out today saying Trump has his highest approval rating right now at 49%? With most citing his handling of the pandemic for the positive rating? I'm baffled!

If you have no job, no money and children you very well could want money more than safety. Trump has people thinking this war will be short and he will win it. You just can't expect much from Americans anymore.

Yes Gary, I think you hit the nail on the head there. The economy will affect everyone but most people will think that the Covid deaths will be other people. If millions end up dying, they may likely be wrong.

Update 8: Because some hotspots like LA and NYC have failed to obtain adequate test kits, death rates and signs of overflowing hospitals are the only measures investors have to observe the direction of the virus. If the hotspots can be tamped down, the virus will present a decreased risk.

Update 7: Fema is making NYC an emergency disaster zone. Unlike Las Vegas, hospital beds are filling up in that hotspot. Until these hotspots are contained, the virus remains a danger.

Update 6: While Trump was not taking the spread of the virus seriously enough, Gavin Newsom is scaring people with talk of Marshall law and 25 million catching the virus.

Update 5: Promising drug used for malaria could treat Coronavirus. Death rate is declining anyway. While I believe risk is declining, I wear a mask to grocery stores.

4 to 6 weeks ago, I was confident Trump would win the election easily. Today I am convinced he will lose by a landslide. And 100% it will be because of how he handled the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is hard to say. I would never vote for him, but if he gives out and showers workers with money, he stands a chance.

James B. Paxton 2 months ago Member's comment

That's a good point. But if some of these projections come true and millions die, it won't matter. Any one who lost a love one likely won't be bought off. And it's not like Trump is giving out money from his own pocket. It's the government's. The people would have gotten that no matter who was president.

James, very high US death rates estimates are, in my opinion, overdone. Now, the financial package to workers may be too small. That could finish Trump.

The world is going to hell in a hand basket!

Gary Anderson 2 months ago Author's comment

That is a broad subject. Governments are forcing crowds into grocery stores. And banks. Stupid!

Update 4: Lack of testing causes panic. No fan of Trump for not getting more testing. That failure undermines his reasonable argument that the death rate is very low in the USA.
