If you want to follow the money - betting odds, this site is interesting

Scroll down to the "Changes in Win Probability Over Time" and play that over time. Republicans should be and are worried.

Personally I think the odds of of Mike Pence ending up being the Republican candidate at 26 to 1 might well be worth a punt. The chance of Trump dropping out I think is greater than 26:1, either as a result of contracting corona virus and being unfit to stand or out of pique. I might put a few bob on Pence as Republican candidate at those odds.

Trump NEVER advocated that his people do less testing.




He said what he said. He said "So I said to my people slow the testing down please". Reporting that is not fake news. It is reporting the truth. Claiming "Trump NEVER advocated that his people do less testing" IS fake news and a LIE.


Sounds like a brag to me. "We test and test and offered global comparisons.

I don't see him calling for less tests.

if he wanted less testing, then there would be less testing but he doesn't actually want to do less testing but rather bragged that they tested 25 million people. Today that number stands at 33 million people. next week, they would have tested 40 million people. It's actually quite staggering.

Testing on that magnitude in large countries like the US is actually an a massive undertaking.

Yeah, moving a million troops and countless military hardware around the planet to wreak havoc in two dozen countries, is so much easier. :lol:

Just when I thought the media couldn’t possibly whip up the irrational hysteria even more:

Coronavirus survivors at risk of PTSD, doctors warn

Of course it is. Also the notion that it is 'a massive undertaking' because the country is large is complete BS. It is a matter of proportions. No reason for the US to lag 40% behind e.g Denmark when it comes to testing rate.

That's easy mate. So many WASP Amphibious Ships and Galaxy Transports can easily move hardware around the place.

they move hardware to Australia all the time, and don't wreak any havoc. They actually help us a lot.

The former TRUMP secretary of State of the US is now working for Australia's ASIO. The Americans are helping us defend ourselves from Chy-nese espionage.

Chy-na just came out and accused Australia of an unprecedented spy campaign against Beijing. Stanathema tous Kinezous!

And 2 dozen countries hey? Very interesting Get Real, but I would now like to ask you what planet you live on? Is Tseri in some kind of parallel universe of your imagination?
