Profits First. If you get sick, the co-pays should cover treatment. If not, die and get out of the way for someone with money.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

Forget about the price gougers, how about the toilet paper hoarders who plan to resell it back to you for $60.
Can we really blame them? That’s what Wall Street, and the Pharmaceutical Companies have been doing to us for decades.

This is a respiratory illness, not a stomach virus. Diarrhea isn’t one of the symptoms, so why the Hell would anybody think they needed to stock up on toilet paper?

There was a run on canned and dehydrated food items also, and a number other household items.
There are deep-seated fears at work here, @satan. People seem to understand intuitively, that if there is a serious national emergency, there is no social services infrastructure that they can depend on, and that they would be on their own in such a time. The media establishment bears some responsibility also, for the sensationalist way in which they disseminate their for-profit propaganda.
