I generally believe what experts in fields that I know little or nothing about. The overwhelming number of experts in pandemics and modeling, say it's quite likely that the virus toll will come back, and maybe even stronger. That is the caution that they make regarding wide spread "open up the economy" move.

We plan to move cautiously, and continue to distance in most cases. However I also recognize that people tend to listen to what supports their desires. I really hope I am wrong, but I fear we won't be able to return to "normal" until there is a vaccine. In the mean time testing and contact tracing are needed. As well as the next stimulus, stalled in the Senate.

The Chinese government is vary different from our government. This is now an opportunity for China to control all the PPE factories in China and now they can control the prices of all PPE equipments in the world. IMHO

NY Post FUD fake news, China is not nationalizing PPE factories, they just placed large order.

Maybe its to replenish their stockpile?

Spread FUD to sell papers, Fear, Uncertainty Doubt.

This story is just rumormongering.

Get back on track or I am going to close this thread:

Avoid posting about politics, religion, or contentious social issues
Unless directly related to timesharing, such discussions are prohibited in these forums, including TUG Lounge. We've been down that road before, it was ugly, and we are not going there again.

Nothing like showing up to the party late only to have the fun bits redacted. :ROFLMAO:

Lol, I agree. Ive got all kinds of things going through my head as to what they could have all said but I suspect the actual likely isn’t as much fun as my imagination.

I like that we are being shown why it was deleted.

Maybe if we keep seeing
“ [POLITICAL - DELETED]”
“ [RESPONSE TO POLITICAL POST, DELETED]“
“[DELETED]”
It will sink in political posts are not allowed.

I like the thread was not closed. Brilliant imo @DeniseM

Clearly what “some “ view as political others do not.

I certainly hope no one thought anything I wrote was unkind and I didn’t feel any unkindness directed at me.

I have been shocked myself by some posts in other threads that seem to draw no attention. Kinda disheartening.

Turk, I believe your post was deleted because it quoted mine that was deleted.

I saw it before it went. Not the least bit offensive to me. I welcome viewpoints of others. We have not all lived the same lives so perspectives will vary.

It does seem like time for a little reminder to all of us, tho - it's an old rule, but questioning the moderation is not tolerated. Frankly, I'm glad to not be a moderator. Many many tough calls. Everyone is dealing with pandemic-related Everything In Life. Stressful times, I'm sure I have "popped off" more than I normally would (yet nobody would ever accuse me of being a meek church mouse in "normal" times). Mods have granted wide latitude that they did not have to.
