Why wouldn't they surrender that information for the sake of their health?


Is Tim's brother getting into the act now?

Everything is trial and error at the moment...... due to the unknowns.... But we have gained a lot of knowledge in a short time about this culprit virus.
Some cannot go into indefinite seclusion ........


I don't know about indefinite seclusion. Whatever we do is NOT 100% safe! Wash your hands and keep your distance and you have a very high chance of being O.K. You have to be careful not to get run over by a truck while avoiding the virus.

India and Brazil both recorded over 50,000 new cases
A second wave may be beginning in some European countries

Ever wonder if maybe a foreign agency is sending infected agents out into the public as an attack on the US?

No foreign interference necessary. The US A is doing itself all the harm it can muster. No leadership, No consistent strategy, childish rebellion of a population that can't be bothered to follow critical health rules. Leadership is talking about a fixed election..........(.OK if in HIS favor. ) The makings of perfect storm. It could end very badly..

hmmm...interesting thought.

I doubt it, since if it were Chinese-Americans, people would catch on, since most Americans are xenophobic towards Asians right now.

Russian-Americans? Hard to say. Considering US Intelligence intercepted word that the Kremlin was paying Taliban members bounties on American soldiers lives, I would figure an operation like that would be intercepted too.

I don't think a person unfamiliar with the United States could pull it off (accent, unfamiliar with American customs, etc) since they would stand out, and draw attention to themselves.

In addition to my distrust of the government to not to use the data in ways not intended and/or not leave it exposed to hackers who could do God knows what with it, I think it will drain my battery and my data. For this to work, it will need to be monitoring my location and relaying it constantly. Location services are a drain on my battery and data is not unlimited or free.
All these and more are the reasons this app will not be on my phone.

With my cell company, most of the city and a heft chunk of rural is free wifi hot spotted. I rarely use my own data. Their goal is Province wide free wifi.

Apps that ask for access to photos, music and Google maps data with no direct need for the app dont get installed.

They've moved on from the Russian conspiracy to Alex Jones being the driving force that got Trump elected according PBS Frontline.

I would be far more concerned with a domestic agency sending infected agents out into the streets.

Popular vote is irrelevant, Hoid. Strange how people don't get that. Popular vote can be achieved by a large turnout in a condensed area!

Saying he won at the ballot box is inaccurate.

India is doing the same thing. One of the largest pharmaceutical companies is gambling on an unproven vaccine. I guess time will tell if they work or not...

Canada needs to change the electoral map. There are areas of BC, Alberta, and Ontario that have one MP for 100,000 people, while in the Atlantic provinces, there is an MP for every 40,000 people.

Alberta and BC combined have 1,000,000 more people than Quebec. Yet Quebec has more MP's. That needs to change. Also of note, is the areas that have a high population for only one MP, tend to vote Conservative (BC, Alberta, Southern Ontario's outlying suburbs of GTA).

2 years ago Fauci asserted without uncertainty that there would be a pandemic in the last few months of Trump's first term?

How did he know this?
