I'm not surprised by anything anymore and have no more words for my displeasure with the government and citizenry alike. A bunch of whiny brats yelling at each other from across the school yard. This might be the last presidential election I participate in, and I'll focus on the local/representative races going forward.

Again, I just want my little slice of heaven 20 miles outside of town with a shop on it and solid internet speeds (another area the government has failed) so I can leave the riffraff to their own devices.

He's been posting links to the man-made virus conspiracy.

Posting them doesn't make them true. You need proper investigation and confirmation of the story.

So far these conspiracy theory has not been vetted by any investigative reporting agencies anywhere in the world.

Like Crystal said before, please don't post stuff here unless it's been vetted by multiple reliable news sources.

I think I might have been the first person in this thread to mention that this might be made in a lab. Way back on page one or two. The Wuhan lab was using the bat species in question.

I still wouldn't be surprised if it was. China took a TON of steps to cover up in the beginning and continue to do so. I have no problems with the articles posted, one is from CNN and the other is reporting on her Twitter account suspension and the report her and colleagues submitted. It even points out that others dispute the report as not submitting any proof and being anecdotal. So, it actually supports your position.

We aren't going to know anything for sure for possibly years. So I prefer discussions of all theories just to keep the info coming until conclusive proof has been found.

Exactly Crystal. If it was created in a lab and released intentionally that makes this a biological attack on the world at one point. Iíll leave it there thatís out of my pay grade.

But the thought scares me a bit and I hope that we havenít gotten to a point in this world that World War III becomes a plausible idea.

Because, World war IV is going to be fought with sticks and stones. And that is not the future that I want for my children.

I respectfully disagree. That's like opening the floodgate to allow all kinds of bs into our daily lives.

Without proper investigation, we should try to limit the amount of bs that gets distributed throughout the vast and unsubstantiated information channel in this age of digital media outlets.

Social media apps like Facebook, Tweeter, Youtube, instagram, wechat, line, tiktok, etc, have all been under the influence of modern day politics and special interests.

You will never know what you see or hear from these outlets are real or not, because it is almost impossible to govern or authenticate any of the conspiracies/ stories.

I would stick with the big three news channels, NPR, and BBC World News, plus and minus information from some of the old timer investigative journalists.

Listening to a particular channel just because you like what the guy says is a recipe for getting fake news.

Because most of them pushes news according to their own agenda, not according to facts.

^I agree with most of that. To get real information it is now the responsibility of the user to fact check and source multiple news outlets. Which takes time and is not always easy. Especially given the quality of our public education system these days. People can be led to believe almost anything.

Another problem is, most people can't even be bothered to do a quick google search to verify anything. So many are getting their news from social media platforms these days. I think a paraphrasing can be applied. "A fool and his vote are soon parted." And the two political parties (and corporate supporters) are well aware of it.

All that said, I don't want to silence anyone. I want to hear who the stupid people are. And the louder they are, the easier they are for me to avoid. For example, do I think Trump's Twitter account should be banned? Hell yeah! But only if you ban every politically oriented account and make it a policy across platform to not allow political ads or accounts. Otherwise you are a biased news source. Which is what we are ending up with on the social media platforms. Selective silencing.
