Re: God and COVID-19

After reading about some of the horror stories going on in New York and other places in the world from COVID-19 right now--people drowning in their own blood-filled lungs, medical personnel getting sick while trying to help others--it really makes me wonder what kind of "god" presides over such hor...

...and looters without hesitation.
Nope. You just need an educated society with decent welfare provision, rather than a rat race free for all.
That will work just fine, in a utopia.
That's a pathetic excuse to avoid doing anything to improve the situation in places where it is shit.

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

Just saying.... As the United States and most of the world adjust to our “new normal,” there is no doubt that this pandemic will impact the presidential election in a myriad of ways. Will it affect the outcome? Only time will tell. Should it affect the outcome? Absolutely. As the former Director of...

So what is the alternative to having a police run state?
But you can have police without guns.

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

Just count yourself lucky you ain't black or from other ethnic minority. ''It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.''

I doubt they will do that. my understanding is Norway's maximum sentence is 10 years - thus my prior post about their legislature amending the 10 yrs to - life (IMO the best option) - to a longer term. AFAIK that have ...
