Posts about Corona virus from the USA mirror a lot of posts from the UK about 2 - 3 weeks ago.

Posts on British forums, Facebook etc mirrored that of Italy 2 - 3 weeks before that.

USA seems to have even worse social distancing then here, and admittedly we've done a wank job of it over here.

Being an mma journalist is on the level of being a part time sportswriter for a small town paper, and paid accordingly, whether they're right or wrong on this issue.

Our shit bag of a prime minister made sure this would happen. Countries like South Korea and New Zealand are putting us to shame.

Most of us are treating it pretty seriously but it doesn't take a majority to fuck it up.

You get off on talking about fucking retarded 4 year olds, I get off on telling people like you what a piece of shit you are. We all have our simple pleasures.

Not sure what you’re referencing. I’m just glad I get you you off, probably the most serious relationship you’ve ever had.

I'm fine with events being cancelled or held in empty stadiums but I've seen an overwhelming majority of MMA media act like any fighter willing to get within 10 feet of each other is a social pariah that should be chastized. 

 

And lets not pretend for one minute the average modern MMA journalist hasn't been to starbucks or panera bread every day for the last 6 years.

It is super weird that a few fighters and production people is a danger to our health but stores being packed are totally fine. Sound reasoning.

I agree with shutting down Dana White's circus due to coronavirus, but the "journalists" are still mostly losers regardless of their stance on that. They are weird cage fight gossip columnists. Some of them are obsessive creepy fanboys that are more like rock band groupies than journalists. Some are underachievers in what they really wanted to do, so now they transcribe Joe Rogan podcasts and claim to be a journalist. I'm sure a couple of them are well adjusted functional humans but if a person could do anything else why would they spend their time contributing to cage gossip on some embarrassing site like BloodyElbow for 50 bucks a week? Who would even put something called "Bloody Elbow" on their resume?

While I am ok that Luke Thomas and others are vocal in standing up against the UFC and I support them for doing that, I also support the UFC for wanting to continue living at a time when the world is shutting down.

 

The NFL, NBA ect are not shut down because they agree that it is a wise move to do to fight Covid-19. They are shut down because they recognize who has the power in this country and what going against that power would do to their enterprise. Anybody who thinks Lorenzo and Frank would be putting on a fight right now is crazy imo. They grew this sport because they got on the right side of the power. WME is put in a peciluar position imo where they wanted to stand up aganst the power right now so they tested the waters in doing so but eventually they were told to stand down also and they did.

 

Who is the power? A group of Elites and they control the media (which is where Luke is getting his message from), the politicians, the judicial system to a great extent, and the whole fucking U.S. economy. Literally they control the economy. Look into how the Fed works. The Fed is a private organization that is owned mostly by owners who do not even live in the US yet they control the whole US economy.

 

In my honest opinion this Covid-19 is real no doubt, and people are dying, but it is also in my opinion a planned attack on the US and specifically the people from the middle cIass and just above it, on down. The guys who own the NFL will be fine. The middle cIass man who is relying on the government to fix his problems is in trouble.

 

The Fed, who again controls the economy has ran a scheme where they got the US govt to essentially start with a credit card with a small limit, then get a bigger credit card to pay that one off, then get a bigger credit card to pay that one off, until now the U.S. government is in so much dept that it can never recover. They can choose to go bankrupt but if the just declare bankruptcy then they will lose faith from their people. What better way to go bankrupt without losing control than to have a virus to use as an excuse? Why do they need an excuse? Well one reason is because they were not borrowing from a credit card but instead it was the US people and they will not pay the,m back. Also the leaders, who are bought and paid for by the Elite, will still need trust from the people so they can  lead the people in the direction that the elite want to take the US and that is to a top down government like China has.

 

The U.S. people are pretty fucked also. They have been led down a road for many years to create dept theirself. They have been persuaded to buy beyond their means for years, getting credit so they can buy nd live beyond their means. When the virus hit, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN THE COUNTRY AND KILLED THE ECONOMY, the people from middle cIass and just above on down are the ones who are going to get hit. When they start to lose their land and all of the other things that they can not afford who is going to snatch it up? Where will this leave the people? Homeless, jobless, pennyless? Can they rely one the government to bail them out? Nope, the government is going down with them. But it is because of the virus right? Nope, it is because of the Fed, but they dont want you to see that. 

 

So what happens when all of this is over? Well a new government will be brought in imo to restore things, a communist government much like China has. I posted a video below. Listen to Melissa Chen describe China and specifically how the Chinese people are taught to think. At 1:30 she goes on to describe "socialism with Chinese characteristics" "There is a fundamental difference in the China dream and the American dream" "(the china dream) is basically a top down way, a goal where we are going to lift people out of poverty but your generation has to make sacrifices, it is not about the individual"

 

DOES THAT MESSAGE SOUND FAMILIAR? WE NEED YOU TO SHUTDOWN THE ECONOMY, ABANDON YOUR BUSINESSES AND LOSE YOUR JOBS, BUT THIS IS NOT FOR YOU, YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS CHOICE FOR OTHER PEOPLE WHO COULD BECOME SICK AND DIE.

 

Fucking, what a message. They know that the American people will fight for theirself.

The American people are all about give me liberty or give me death. But when it comes to give me liberty unless there is a virus with a 97% survival rate that could kill someone else then I'll do my part, you can take my business etc. you can take my liberties, I just dont want to be responsible for someone else dying. It's a powerful message that yields a lot of control.

People have simply let this virus scare them out of being rational. In my town Wal-Mart, Kroger, and Lowe’s are packed. Busiest I’ve ever seen them. Apparently that’s perfectly fine, yet these same dipshits are all over the internet yelling at and wishing death upon people breaking the rules and going for a hike lol. Fear and stupidity rule the day. 


Which is stupider? Following expert opinion on a subject you aren't an expert of, or not knowing the difference between essential and non-essential?
