If some of you think that then some of you are not very bright. Trump
supporters believe all sorts of looney things, 52% think Obama was born in
Kenya, and nearly half, 46%, think Hillary Clinton ran a child sex slave
ring out of the basement of a Washington D.C. pizza parlor, although I'm
not sure if "think" is the right word. And the poll was taken AFTER a Trump
zombie armed with a assault rifle burst into the restaurant and demanded to
see the basement. The restaurant has no basement. More relevant to the
current situation and much scarier, despite all scientific knowledge to the
contrary 31% of Trump voters think vaccines cause autism.

I don't know if it came from bats or not but other than that I have no
particular problem with the above.

And some governments were much more ineffective than others, and some acted
like failed states and didn't even try to stop the virus for 2 months.
There is a reason the USA has 4% of the world's population but 33% of the
people sick with COVID-19, and that reason is Donald J Trump.

It sure sounds like you're going there. You keep talking about how there
should be no overall coordination in this war against the virus and every
state city town village and household should be 100% free to do their own
thing. I might agree if the virus had read the US Constitution and had
agreed to abide to it, but I don't believe that is the case.

Apparently you think this problem started in 1835, I think it may have been
a tad later.

Satire? What satire comrade? Must stop now, have sex ring business to
attend to in basement of restaurant with Hillary.
