So what exactly is it that Obama has done that have all my Trump loving friends so excited about? Keep seeing references to Obamagate but haven't seen the list of criminal acts posted anywhere yet. Can someone point me to the specifics?

Exclusive: Husband of Reopen NC leader ‘willing to kill people’ in resistance to emergency orders
Wish we had red flag laws to strip him of his guns. People like this are scary and absolutely no different than Islamic terrorist.

Believe it has to do with the fact that Obama and Hillary spied on the Trump campaign and fabricated the whole Russian hoax. It will all be made public in the weeks to come.

It's what some people have always said they were trying to stop Trump at every turn all the way up to Inauguration Day and as we've seen it didn't end there

Several weeks ago some Chinese and Indian troops got into a fistfight.....China and India have been at this for a long time and have fought full fledge battles over the last 50 years.....this is not new or a lead up to a Chinese invasion of India.....they area the Chinese moved into is a disputed valley they both claim....this is really par for the course for Indo-Chinese relations.
China is pushing tensions in lots of areas. From India to Hong Kong to the South China Sea. They have been buzzing our carriers in the region. Eventually a war will unfold.

If a new Cold War broke out between the USA and China would it involve military?

China isn’t just pushing things in this area, they are doing a lot of things in other surrounding areas as well trying to expand out their presence. Also, in the article it means how China has been acquiring control of various ports that could shut off India. They’re also trying to take over Hong Kong and pushing to expand their control in other areas too. This is usually how wars start; battles over land/territory or a desire to expand one’s empire. Not saying one will but I’ve been watching China closely and they are slowly ramping things up.

Guess the end times are here......finally, maybe?
No where did I say end times where here. You keep living in utopia. History repeats itself. Plus you don’t think all these companies pulling outta China. Which will be more unemployment for them. Less money. Along with tensions and feelings towards them can not lead to war. Then you are blind. It’s also history when countries are in economic depressions they go to war to get outta a depression. It might be another 5-10 years but it’s coming. When China starts asserting itself into Hong Kong and other countries like Taiwan. Then America and other countries will step in. Just a matter of time. China does not care. They have billions of people.

Well shut down was good for a couple weeks but it’s went on way to long. People are seeing it now and waking up. Living has chances of death every day.

I've heard some of his rhetoric parroted on here to.some degree.

He is a threat to the 2nd amendment and he is why I am so proudly and continuing to become a staunch advocate of atheism.
Yeah but make no mistake there are TONS of people that were nodding along with that idiot....its just plain ignorance to what the problems are...the part where he goes on about waiting till hospitals are at 150% capacity and then doing lockdowns etc just shows he is completely uninformed.....by then it would be way to late.

100% guarantee this guy would not be the one with a gun telling a cop he will have a gunfight on his hands if he tries to stop them at a rally lol.....guys like this are as bad as the gun grabbers....they stir the pot but when it comes time to act rather it be getting in a gunfight with cops or going door to door trying to confiscate guns the ones that talk big are usually no where to be found.

Fake. Georgia's numbers have been going up more again recently if you look at their charts. Might be because testing went up but to conclude that when numbers say otherwise is foolish.

Yeah that guy is no "constitutionalists". Where was his call to arms when constitutional rights of gay marriage were infringed? How about stop and frisk? Civil forfeiture? Where was he then?

Make no mistake this man cares nothing of rights unless it's his he feels are threatened. He has no problem threatening other peoples rights as long as he and his god are the ones stripping them away.

That dude can go pound sand!

100 thousand deaths is a lot but the fact is at the end of the day it's 0.3% of the population and how much of that is because certain governors put them in nursing homes??

How many people have committed suicide in the last 2 months over this?

It's truly incredible we are destroying so much over this. People's lives are being destroyed over this lockdown and it has nothing to do when them being sick

The fact is, the virus can't be eradicated and you can't keep the whole country locked down forever. There has to be a different approach. There has been far too much politicization around this and far too much misinformation put out, both intentionally and unintentionally.

Yep the fact this is a right or left thing at this point is a shame and frankly embarrassing....stuff like this just shows that most people are willfully stupid and ignorant.....my FB feed is a damn joke these days, people I normally deem normal people post some damn stupid meme's with totally wrong "facts" because they think it makes the liberals look dumb, when in fact it does the opposite....then the liberals turn around and do the same damn thing lol, because taking cheap shots at the "other side" is more important than doing what is right and in the best interest of EVERYONE....I use to be optimistic about the future, now social media has provided a medium for people to openly and very publicly express their stupidity and lack of critical thinking skills and I realize we are probably ****ed.

The strangeness of this virus and all its quirks make this 10x harder to predict. At this point what I would call the 3 S approach is the only way I see forward.

Steady, smart and seriously.

I see too many people acting like there is no virus. There is and it can be serious for many so we all need to take it seriously. We need to take the reopening on a steady and calculated heading and we need to be smart about how we progress and react to how it all evolves.

The internet is 99% responsible for this division. In ore internet days politics was largely a taboo conversation to have outside of your closet friends and family. Fact is none of us would know each other outside of the internet and we wouldnt know political affiliations to even argue over.

Sure it will.

Meanwhile, Trump wants to cull the NC Republican population. Are we sure he isn't still a Democrat?

As some say we don’t care about people dying. It’s obvious those that all they can focus on is cases going up. Even though hospitals are not being overrun. The majority recover. That these individuals want the virus to be bad. Almost as if they want America to collapse. They don’t look at the future and what it is destroying. They only want to see more cases and deaths it seems.

This is the new flu. We all will be exposed as I have said. Hopefully herd immunity builds. People that want to live in caves forever do it. This virus will still be here when you come out.
