    Not even close :)
    I think, as the thread I started suggested, that Memorial Day was an early "Independence Day", where people were fed up with being shut in, and went on about their family gatherings, picnics, swim parties, etc...

    It's pretty hard to battle the human spirit of "I want freedom".

    Same with the economy.

    How sad it must be to be in a position to wish deaths and financial ruin on your country for political purposes.
    There you go with your dishonest and disparaging remarks again. What is it with you CP, you just can't help yourself or what? Name me one person here who has wished for more deaths or financial ruin.

    Jim, if I've said something dishonest, then man up and point it out in the same post where you make that gutless cowardly claim, OK?

    Apparently, you've really allowed me to get under your incredibly thin skin, but there's nothing I've said that can be construed as "dishonest".

    Even you wouldn't be stupid enough to admit it openly, Jim.

    Oh, I see, so you just accuse people of saying stuff because it's what you believe they think, but not what they've actually said they think. Gotcha!

    OK, so let's pretend you can actually formulate an honest accusation. Please provide, using the actual quote function, what I said that is "dishonest".

    Thanks.

    PS -- you might try educating yourself on Tweb's actually policy of accusing others of lying.

    I didn't accuse you of lying, I was refering to your post where you dihonestly suggested that those of us on the other side of the issue were, according to our posts, wishing for more deaths and financial ruin.

    "How sad it must be to wish deaths and financial ruin on your country for political reasons." Not one person suggested having any such wish.

    How can a "suggestion" be dishonest if the person "suggesting" it believes it to be true?

    that those of us on the other side of the issue were, according to our posts, wishing for more deaths and financial ruin.
    Exact quote, please.

    "How sad it must be to wish deaths and financial ruin on your country for political reasons."
    That's how it appears to me, yes. Some of the Democrats were even bragging hoping for a recession to ruin Trump's chances of reelection.

    Frustrated Democrats still hoping in vain for recession

    “Here Comes the Trump Slump” warned yet another anti-Trump column from New York Times columnist Paul Krugman last week. This is the same Paul Krugman who predicted the stock market would “never” recover from its initial sell-off on news of a Trump victory. He also said Trump's election would usher in a global recession. Oops.

    Krugman writes that Trump’s trade policies are pushing the economy into a downturn, looking especially at the recent weakness in manufacturing and exports, which have indeed been dinged by the president’s confrontation with China.

    He suggests that a slowdown could so damage Trump’s reelection prospects that the president will probably pressure federal bean-counters to inflate the numbers.


    Not one person suggested having any such wish.
    It is my personal opinion that many Democrats hate Trump so much that they'd welcome anything it took to get him out of office. Why are you taking this so personally, Jim?

    Of course "nobody" cares about the predictions since liberals didn't get the million deaths to lay at Trump's feet that they were gleefully anticipating. But as Thoughtful Monk pointed out, a comparison of per capita numbers shows that the US is doing at least as well as any other country at mitigating the China flu.

    No one predicted millions of death as a thing which might come to pass.

    As long as you repeat this false claim, I will repeatedly correct you.
