    Coronavirus

    You started the Hillary discussion off in the Trump thread, that's all I know.

    Coronavirus

    "Playing politics" is the biggest load of shit I've ever heard and we already talked about them using this excuse when this started. Starmer should be fucking raging at them because 40k people are dead due to the way they've dealt with this. "Don't play politics" can be translated to "don't expose us."

    Donald Trump

    I know she'd have been surrounded by professionals but you could say the same for recent dem presidents and many other countries have still suffered wars inflicted on them. Anyway I was only saying how I thought things might've turned out and this pandemic has made things a whole lot worse which like I said, I'm sure Clinton would've been a lot better with.

    Donald Trump

    I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not, but was also going to say even that isn't saying much, because Trump has still caused a lot of shit abroad, even if it hasn't been open warfare. Sanctions, drone bombings have been at their highest rates ever I think, and there's other crap he's done as well that I can't think of off the top of my head. So I'm not saying Trump has been some type of guardian angel for the rest of the world. He's basically a fucking nightmare but has stopped short of causing open warfare on another country. If we were to know the full effects of sanctions in places like Iran and Venezuela though along with the other stuff he's done there's still going to be a lot of misery and death he's inflicted.

    Donald Trump

    I think it comes down to where the chaos either of them would inflict would land. I've said in the past I think that Trump could be a nightmare domestically but could be better for the rest of the world, and Clinton could've been a lot better domestically (she'd have surely dealt with this pandemic a lot better for a start) but places like the Middle East could've been in total chaos now. So in that sense, Trump ironically is more like China to me. A nightmare for so many of his own people but doesn't cause so much shit abroad. And Clinton would've been more like, well the US. Things kind of stagnate as usual domestically but one or more other countries could've suffered badly from wars/airstrikes inflicted on them. I'm not saying any of this is right, just how I've thought it might've turned out. And let's not forget Trump still has months in office so could still unleash hell in some other country yet. He did run on saying the wars weren't helping though and is close to another election, would be kind of self-defeating if he threw that away now when he could use it to his advantage so much in the election.

    Coronavirus

    I might be repeating myself a bit from earlier but I'd been up all night. Had Saints Row 3 Remastered on the way and nobody to get the door so had to stay up. At least this reality can fuck off for a while as I play that now I suppose. We've talked about the world having gone mad a lot recently but with this latest chaos in the US it really has tipped over into proper madness, it's hard even keeping up with what's going on each day now.

    Coronavirus

    So we have one of the most useless fucking governments on the planet for dealing with this virus and we're supposed to be having on average around 8000 people a day still being infected in England alone, and somehow relaxing the so-called lockdown rules is going to turn out well? I can't see how there's not a second wave incoming, and the signs of it might appear a lot faster than in two weeks time. At least people will have had while to get outdoors again and meet other people if restrictions are put back in place, but it'll surely be at the cost of a lot more lives. (incase anyone's wondering, I'd have preferred restrictions in place a bit longer. People with extreme mental health issues from being stuck inside should've been given some way of getting out more though to prevent that from being prolonged.)

    Coronavirus

    After all of the deaths we've had you'd think it'd happen, but agreed it's really unclear if they'll be held to account at all and even more crazy to think that they still have supporters willing to brush it all aside as long as "leftists" don't get into power. Imagine trying to describe this scenario here and in the US to people 5 or so years ago, we'd be laughed at and probably classed as completely insane (something similar might have already been mentioned but I'm tired and can't remember what's gone on in this thread properly + have missed big parts of it recently.) But here we are, and as much as everything else I really hope this does start fading out as a virus like you said. Maybe the heat will end up having some effect even though some have doubted that's going to happen, or something else will work like the mutations making it weaker because our versions of social distancing and our govs clearly aren't up to the job at the moment of slowing it down enough.

    Yeah if there's an uprising someone go into a game store and grab us FF7 Remake for the PS4 please if there's looting, not got it yet.

    Coronavirus

    I hope it does too, but with people protesting all over the place about what's going on in the US, us trying to go back to normal when we didn't have this under control very well, India, Brazil and other countries due for way more chaos I'm not confident at all. If the UK ends up with tens of thousands more deaths in a 2nd wave I find it insane really, because another month or so without lifting restrictions might have made things a lot safer. Not that it'd make me happy for that to be the case either (more restrictions not people being safe) as there's people all over the country stuck inside in bad situations (like blocks of flats that I think Section mentioned too) so there's no way out of this where people don't suffer badly. We'll find out in about 2 weeks anyway what the result of this is, and in the US too with all of the protesting. I feel sick thinking about it really.

    Donald Trump

    They've got to sort the police out over there, total fucking mess.

    Donald Trump

    He's just another elitist right-wing prick that's obviously full of himself as well with stuff like that in his bio. It's amazing how people like him can so casually tweet crap like that knowing that the consequences won't affect them at all because they're living in a different reality than most Americans. I thought this was a good read too :

    Donald Trump

    If he's really comparing them to terrorists in the Middle East wouldn't the US gov be funding and arming them instead? The stupid fascist cunt. I wouldn't be surprised if part of this current chaos is a COINTELPRO-style op anyway.

    Donald Trump

    I don't think so, if they covered for her several times in 2016 and maybe since then too, it's unlikely anything's going to happen to her now and probably similar with those Trump court cases. The system is doing its job to protect them I think so it seems like a waste of time following it.
  15. Red Phoenix

    Donald Trump

    Never heard of the cunt. There's at least one right wing group still trying to get her back in court over that I think, or they were recently (I had to search to remember who they are, it's Judicial Watch). I've not followed it though so no idea what happened and not really interested either.
  16. Red Phoenix

    Donald Trump

    The Trump stuff is years old so if it didn't do anything back then it's not going to do anything now I don't think : Donald Trump will face child rape charges in court, says lawyer for alleged victim It's not much of a surprise that some of us have forgot it was ever news when things were so insane with everything going on before the election in 2016.

    Donald Trump

    Hmmm, anything to deflect I guess. He's getting really desperate now.

    I wouldn't be surprised with the way he was so casually talking about herd immunity back in march.

    Coronavirus

    I didn't think you'd said that (I haven't been reading much of this thread recently either) and was wondering what Spy Bee's angle was with the post too. I guess I know now haha.

    Amazon

    I never like using them and still get stuff from smaller stores at times but it's harder when the post is slow due to what's going on and my brother has amazon prime that I can just log into to get orders. It'll take some serious effort for them to stop being so dominant though like has already been said. They're in google/windows territory now with no real rivals anywhere near them for a lot of what they do.
  22. Red Phoenix

    Coronavirus

    Yeah I've no idea what happened there and I'm assuming there's some type of bullshit involved, hopefully they'll get called out on it though if they're badly fucking around with the figures, or maybe that's already happened and I've not seen it.

    Coronavirus

    Touching surfaces then your eyes/mouth isn't supposed to be the main way it spreads but washing hands for some could be the difference between getting it or not, and considering that anyone catching it could lead to a chain reaction of loads of others catching it, clearly that could be a huge difference.
