Covid is just one problem the USA is fighting.
A possible civil war is in the making,that's a bigger threat.

good article - a lot of quotes and facts there - accepting them at face value, it certainly is alarming reading and reminds how screwed up America is.

the next Presidency - whether is be Trump or Biden  - is a crucial one that must get things under control

NY state has 14 day quarantine at its borders now.
You can see this wreaking havoc in the US for many months (Years?) given the population size and their attitude to any community good. Not to mention anti-vaccers and conspiracies.
They may well be the worst toll in terms of deaths and economics.
But they have to be in ever deeper dodoos if the lunatic is put back in charge of the asylum.

If Biden wins(which he wont,) America is in deep sh1t. He said you ain't black if you vote Trump,lol. He will get shot to pieces in the first debate,he has even been warned to not debate Trump. I'm no Trump fan,but Biden is a Trainwreck mentally,I feel sorry for him. If Biden wins,his VP will take over fairly quickly.There are going to be race wars, believe that. BLM wants reperation,white people to give their land to black families,the abolition of police and jails... And it's actually happening in Seattle and Oregon as we speak. Then bring China into the equation.. ..the explosion in Beirut which made Russia say today that any missile seen entering Russian airspace will be assumed to be a nuclear attack and will have immediate equal retaliation.. cause they think it was a bombing,not an accident.
I want 2019 back.

I'm with that.70's seemed to have it right. Post Vietnam. World peace /love/ blah blah. But as the article says - the good ol US was still embroiled in conflicts.
My primary school days seemed OK.
Eat your lunch, free milk, no homework, no responsibilities, eeling and making forts after school.
Looks like US may be screwed either way. I hate to think what Trumps ego will look like if he got back in. The one redeeming thing that man has done is call China out. The first world leader to stand up to them really.

It is a funny old world.
Those using violence and vandalism promoting the BLM and even those who are not using violence are themselves advocating racism and separatism.
Bit like NZ really.
Those fighting the so called "good fight" are creating bigger gaps between the races than already exists.
Oh the irony.

Agree V8 it is salt on old, very very old in fact wounds.
Its like the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the 00s never happened. Ignoring the fact the civil right protests did actually make things a lot better. When racism was truly instituted the protests were absolutely needed and were not nearly as destructive.
What are they protesting about now I cannot fathom. An incident is not an indictment on a whole country.

I’m more inclined to think Biden will win... certainly based on current polling it’s more feasable   than anything else you’ve Predicted above .
But than you’d complain about the tax you have to pay on the Interest after winning power ball lotto

Yes, I would have picked Biden. By default. I do think the bulk of US have probably had their fill of Trump now. Unless Kayne West wins. It is America. They did vote Trump in.
It is remarkable that in a country like the US that is what you get to choose from as a leader.  If I was an american I think I would be getting depressed by now.

Biden could.win,but I think Dems are voting for his vp,which he still can't decide on. He is cognitively not there to run a country,that's obvious.
And I wouldn't complain about tax on lotto cause I don't pay idiot tax to partake.

good read despite being a thinly veiled trump hit piece. Thanks for sharing.  

The line below didn’t sound right so I looked it up. It’s totally wrong US testing rates are almost double Canada’s. When you find on claim so wrong it makes you wonder about the others. 

Throughout the crisis, testing rates across Canada have been consistently five times that of the U.

A 'democratic' country that has such a rigid, political two-party state will eventually founder.
To believe that having a hugely un-equal spread of wealth and unaffordable health care system is asking for trouble.
At 72, I won't see the US's collapse but will see its decline and that's not a good thing for the West.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
