US sets a new record for Covid deaths today.

2810!

And the Trumpers on my other forums are still saying it's just a seasonal flu and nothingi to be worried about.

So youíre concerned about the buzzwords, and take offence to a word, rather than actually knowing what policies would be entailed in a Ďresetí.

Youíre a very shallow-minded thinker, arenít you?

I don't think the people going on about some great reset have a clue what they are talking about either.

No idea what it means.

Unlike some, I will wait and see what it means in terms of policy changes and then form my opinion about.

You on the other hand, think itís a bad idea before the idea is even articulated.

This seems really evil:

What is shallow thinking?  He said he doesn't know what it means.  He never said he objected to anything.  Because so far there is nothing, except buzzwords.

It's clearly about lessening wealth equality, and putting the planet and people before profit.

Yes, which are buzzwords.  There's no actual policy platforms yet.

I would hope everyone would agree with those buzzwords in general, but the devil is in the details.

Thank you to the 16 people who have read this thread so far, and also thank you for not replying with unnecessary spamming.

How could anybody question the fact that something is going terribly wrong in America when the Dow hits a record high as food lines hit record lengths?

We're obviously not to the point at which Americans are afraid of the death count yet, but we're probably not far from it.
The reason there are food lines, etc is because the government has shut down their businesses.  How can you blame that on capitalism?  That's Orwellian.

member Shady, pictures of long lines (of vehicles, of people) were from so-called 'red-states'... of prominent note, Texas & Florida. I thought those states were open for bidness - no shutdowns per the Rethuglican mantra! Amirite?
