    You don't even realize you made my point.

    Preparing yourself is how you mitigate risk. The more you prepare the less exposed to risk you are.

    Here you go again.

    You know what just happened. I literally quoted your strawman. Now you are doubling down.

    Your grasp of logic is not as tenable as you think. Your "extrapolation" was complete bullshit. You literally set up a strawman while accusing me of doing the same. Get the fuck out of here with that. You literally said "fuck everyone else. I don't care. they're dumb. I'm doing what I choose to do." which is exactly what I just highlighted in your quote above.

    I think we're done here.

    You want to stand on pomp and philosophical debate. I want to stand on history, common sense, and human nature.

    Good luck on your hunt for toilet paper in the coming months~


    P.S. Because I care so much what you think and so desperately want to show you what a benevolent human being I really am please PM your address and I will ship you exactly one (1) roll of Charmin's finest. If you have any other needs please include them in the request because, as I stated before, I am the bounty of human kindness and could find it within my heart subsidize your lack of forethought that not everyday brings sunshine - it occassionally brings rain.

    Lack of supplies don't kill people. I think a starving man would argue with that.

    Yup, they will go after the easy prey first, then move up to the so call prepare groups . Most Americans are soft compared to third world countries and don't know what they could be in for if things get worst .

    Americans been doin this for 200 years.

    For their independence Americans decided to cross a frozen river on Christmas Eve. To kill some motherfuckers in their sleep.

    We are some extreme motherfuckers.





    Well, I mean - some Americans are. Some sip their soy latte and make fun of Trump.

    ....also I have been drinking tonight...

    I don't want to oversell or minimize the impact of the virus to public health or the economy, but at least we haven't had millions of people die or millions of dollars of infrastructure destroyed. A lot of economic damage has been done and will set us back for awhile, but if we can get people out of isolation then I think we can come roaring back.

    The biggest issue with this virus is not knowing who is infected or how bad it is for them. We need to get a serious testing regime in place so that we can target people who need treatment and can spread the virus. Outside of that we have the economic poison of the lockdowns.

    A better question is how much worse will the economic collapse be if we allow the virus to run rampant than if we shut down for a few months.

    Yeah, think for yourself while ignoring the expert opinions of people that have spent their entire adult lives studying these things. Let us know how that works out for you.

    These same so called experts made the same absurd predictions about the swine flu and other viruses that have come and gone over the last 20-25 years. This isn't the first time they've been wildly wrong.

    Swine flu wasn't nearly as spreadable, either.

    Well, that's what they're saying, anyway. They've been wrong/full of shit many times before.

    Oh, that's right. You don't have to wonder because I already told you the reason is you are as ignorant as you are arrogant and you never miss an opportunity to try to claim you're better than other people, though I failed to mention your pathetic need for one-upmanship. But I'll still be here if and when you grow up.

    And what the fuck is a liberal glasses bitch anyway? Glasses have an partisan component now, do they?
