I'm sorry but your numbers are wrong.

The President said, a month ago:
"And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done."

So it must be down to just a handful by now.

I like this one too, especially the last 15-20 seconds ;D

I will not comment on the way this (*will get censored*) guy Trump and his cohort behave and speak, but I have to admit one of the few good things that our local morons (*will note get censored for sure*) did in the recent times is to apply the complete lock-down and do not underestimate of what's happening ..

I didn't realize that Vancouver had become the Fourth Reich. Between your cell phone ticket and the $1000 above, it sounds like the Gestapo has taken over the metro police. Wtf?
I KNOW. Holy s#$t.

I'm just glad it wasn't me. A $1,000 ticket on top of what I'm already going through, and I don't know what I'd do.
I'm listening to the Timcast, and someone said they got fined too. A second violation is $7,500.

Our new world is gonna be fun.
Seems like the state/cities are trying to make up for lost revenue.

For $7,500 would you just ask for a Jury trial?
Meanwhile, while being the Corona Nazis, they are refusing to arrest actual criminals for shoplifting, robbery, etc. ::)

Cruise ships. I would guess the ships are foreign flagged, but the US cruise companies are US companies paying US taxes on applicable income. They probably are able to minimize that through various internal arrangements though. The reaction you are having can also be applied to any company that has a foreign factory.

Is this an argument for a VAT? Maybe this should be another thread.

This could well go into the Religion thread but it seemed more appropriate for the current Wuhan virus situation. I hope you all enjoy the perspective.

This female representative from Michigan is absolutely going wild right now.

You WILL be seeing video clips of this.

It is now live on C-Span.

She has stopped speaking.
