The real reason we're still not testing.
« on: Thu, 14 May 2020, 11:42:38 »
What happened is,  the Lobbyists (Pharmaceutical) said to the politicians, HEY, don't import, buy from us, we'll cut you in on the profits, contribute to your campaign, hookers, cocaine, the standard.

Politicians go, OK, kewl.

Korona happens, logistic challenges, they can't make the kits properly, can't deliver them, can't get them properly tested/ evaluated,   Trump team <the politicians who were privy to the cut is now on deflection>

But who really dropped the ball, well, everyone really, but it's the corruption that introduced the most lag time, and it is this same corruption that got 80,000 people killed, 120,000 thousand more to come.

USA possibly second only to Jpn has the strongest chemicon in the world, everything needed to make testing kits exist, all the talent, the capital, the technology, the infrastructure. We're hung up on Corruption.

They'd have you believe testing kits are this complicated thing, they're not, Thailand banged them out in mere days, THAILAND,  Think about it.

Some of y'all non-geography people might think, buh TP, Thailand make these high tech samsung fones,  y'all thinking of South Korea. 

Thailand/ Myanmar/ Laos/ Cambodia  is like the South America of Eastern Asia.

perhaps
"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous if you are into this tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air.
A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?"

Lobbying needs to be outlawed, and the two party system needs to burn, ideally with a ban on all political parties of any kind as well. Madison never intended for this partisanship and tribalism (herd mentality) when framing our constitution. Only then will we ever be on course for a rational/(relatively) inccorupt/efficient government, and this applies to all 3 branches. Even the judicial branch is operating far outside of its allowed parameters, and has for at least a century.

Ridiculous, nonsensical political and social constructs, ideals, and policies that have unnecessarily plagued us for decades, even centuries, to the economic, psychological, philosophical, and even physical detriment of the people would begin to fade within a generation.

Requiring at least one general philosophy course in high school would be a good step in the same regard, even socially.
