I'm sure we can work out an equitable arrangement, no need to get all legal. As a show of good faith on your part maybe pitch me a half dozen likes?

Sure and the only honest one Wendy gets nothing!

Covid-19 just doesn't have a scary enough ring to it and Chinese Flu is even less scary.  

The Black Death had the best marketing by far.  Poliomyelitis sounds scarier, too, as do Yellow Fever, Anthrax and Dengue.

You're right. It sounds like something you'd buy at GNC for your knees.

A nurse worked for a week while infected with the coronavirus. The hospital wasn’t testing staff.

"Testing remains a major problem in the battle against the coronavirus as hospitals grapple with a shortage of test kits and long wait times for results."

Trump Says U.S. Doesn’t Want All Americans Tested, Only Sick

This is the story on how trump became the MAGA country of the C-19 developed world. How S.Korea and the US started the C-19 race on the same date.How warnings in the US went unheeded. Just like the Chinese doctor that warned what was coming in China.

While trump brags that one out of every 330 Americans have been tested to date.

Who are the imbeciles that vote for people like Nunes?

Hi John,

This should answer your question ( from Wikipedia ):

In 1998, Nunes entered the "top two" primary race for California's 20th congressional district seat held by Cal Dooley. He finished in third place.

In 2002, Nunes ran for the Republican nomination in the 21st congressional district, a new district created through reapportionment after the 2000 United States Census. Nunes was the only major candidate from Tulare County; Patterson and Briggs were both from Fresno. This was critical, as 58% of the district's population was in Tulare County. Patterson and Briggs split the vote in Fresno County, allowing Nunes to win by a four-point margin over Patterson, his nearest competitor. Nunes won 46.5% of the vote in Tulare County and 28.1% of the vote in Fresno County. Nunes was also helped by a strong showing in the rural part of the district.  The district is solidly Republican, and Nunes coasted to victory in November. He was reelected seven times against only nominal Democratic opposition until 2018, when he faced a serious opponent and won his ninth election by 5%. He ran unopposed in the 2010 general election.

Nunes's district was renumbered the 22nd after the 2010 census. It lost most of eastern Tulare County to the neighboring 23rd District, and now has a small plurality of Hispanic voters. Despite these changes, it is no less Republican than its predecessor. Nunes was reelected with 62% of the vote in 2012, 72% in 2014, 68% in 2016, and 53% in 2018.

In 2018 Nunes faced Democratic nominee Andrew Janz, a Fresno County prosecutor. Nunes defeated Janz with 53% of the vote to Janz's 47%, easily the closest race of his career.

 It does look his re-election prospects are becoming less & less.  There is hope on the horizon.

Coronavirus Data Is Being Concealed by the Trump Administration

link from billvon post in another thread.  from Union of Concerned Scientists.

" the administration is also engaging in a strategy that restricts the ability of scientists from directly communicating important information to the public on COVID-19.... When visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last Friday, President Trump openly admitted that this is exactly what he wants. ... White House officials ordered that a CDC plan on controlling the spread of the novel coronavirus remove certain science-based information "

The entire story is worth reading.

Because his BOGO advertising violated the BBB standards. He was giving away too many too long.

He wasn't giving anything away, that's the point. If it's always BOGO then it's not really an offer, it's just how much the product costs. Describing it as an offer is therefore fraudulent. If you're getting one free it's because you're paying double for the other.

 

Not really surprising you're the guy to fall for it though.
