:-)) Poor old Trump must be as poor as a church mouse to have only paid
$750 in the year he was elected as president. And also only paid taxes
in 11 years in an 18 year period.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/27/new-york-times-publishes-donald-trumps-tax-returns-election
" The president “paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the
presidency”, the paper reported, adding that “in his first year in the
White House, he paid another $750.

“He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years –
largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.”

In all, the paper said, Trump paid no federal income taxes in 11 of 18
years its reporters examined. Many of his businesses, including his golf
courses, report significant financial losses – which have helped him to
lower his taxes."

exchange rates) OK I get credit here

More interesting to me is the perilous state of his 'empire', it seems
to be a house of cards with foundations of debt. As long he can keep
paying back enough he's OK but if the creditors get worried. Reminds me
of Alan Bond

And at least you don't claim to be a billionaire. AND you don't get
caught out telling lies like Trump does (despite the accusations made by
pretzel, the village idiot of aus.pol). :-))

...as if USA was the gold standard in handling COVID-19
Your country is a fokking basket case.
I am living in a place free of the virus for 5 months, because we don't
have fuckwits like Trump/Bolsinaro/Putin running the shop

Very unfair they've only had 209,453 deaths at the 9th highest death per
million rate. If only the deep state had listened to Trump and put
Hydroxychloroquine in the drinking water (OK that's OTT) all would have
been good

It just will not serve the purpose. Even the best
tests are iffy, and the better ones are also rather
slow to analyze. By then the virus has slipped
past you.

There are two choices in the end :

1) Take an ultraauthoritarian approach and lock
everybody, including service providers, in
their cells/houses and horrifically punish all
who slip up in any way. (this is what seems
to be evolving in the UK). Problem, it destroys
your country and then things are ten times
worse.

2) Just manage the cases - with a big effort on
useful treatments, very small scale interventions
and rapid delivery of vaccines. Your country
survives and when the vaccines come out you
are in a vastly better position compared to those
attempting solution #1.

Yes, because no one ever died of a virus until Covid came along.

Where i live we haven't notice any difference what so ever, Apparently
we had some bozo come up from Victoria that had it, but was quarentined
immedialy and then sent back.(Around 3 months ago) but thats it.
Has been no change to us in lifestyle, getting togther , anything.

But makes for exciting reading in the newspapers.

And you Yanks are in the top ten...

...for most deaths per capita from COVID-19

Out of a couple of hundred countries, only 9 have more people dead as a
proportion of their population than the US.
