Yeah, and I bet they have their pick on what to eat, unlike the rest of us who just have to make do with whatever we can find that's not sold out. I bet they have plenty of toilet paper and sanitizer, and let's not forget Pence's test results came back in a matter of hours!Faldaguy wrote: ↑Mon Mar 23, 2020 2:15 amThey don't get paychecks, and could give a toots darn about such -- the real benefits are much more disguised-- graft, bribes, handouts, gifts and self-enrichment schemes in the revolving door of how to feed at the government trough. It is not the paycheck, but the perks & access to power that drives million dollar campaigns for $100K jobs -- not civil-mindedness. They would not miss a paycheck.
The U.S. will probably wind up being the hardest hit by this, I expect we will surpass Italy and even China in overall cases and deaths.
When this is said and done, China will finally be recognized as the world's new superpower. China has been at the top for over two decades now, all that bunk about America being at the top was just horsesh!t. China produces everything. The rest of the world just consumes what China makes.
This virus will bring us to our knees. I wouldn't be surprised if we got invaded before this is finished.
No nation stands a chance against China, they have the most people, and they produce virtually everything. Everything our military uses is made with some level of Chinese components.
Trump got into a trade war with China, and China finally hit back.
Ironic isn't it? Our capitalist ways ultimately led to us being at the mercy of a communist nation...
And here some members thought we were going the way of Venezuela.... bet they never would have dreamed we'd just wind up being Chinas b!tch.
