Go away, you're a waste of time, going on and on about subjects you have no knowledge of. You know jack-shit about the US military.
Blackwater hasn't existed now for over 10 years. You need to lay off watching Taken and Taken II compulsively youngster.

You might as tell me that in your world there are unicorn fart rainbows.
There ya go, H. You're warming up to the stupidity. Take it up another notch.

Bull shit. Show us. I bet you're confusing public interests with liberal interests. RW corporate lobbyists continually plead for special goodies and breaks -- that's why Republicans exist.

I won't say that is why the Republican party still exists and also, what I said about Trump is still so. However, I stand corrected. Thank you for the informative link.

You know, there was a time back in W's second term when people were asking why the Democrat party still even exists. Things rise and fall and rise to fall again, I guess, Thanks again for the link

AND BTW, jacking up prices during a national emergency is TOTALLY illegal. Amazon is policing their site as we speak and I imagine the Hand Sanitizer police are on the job.
It's just hard for me to believe that people so incredibly greedy. WTH is wrong with people?
Illegal? It depends but price control is always a bad thing even in times of war. The government should have no power to manipulate supply and demand, ever. That's needs to be left up to the free-market to decide.

And please calm down, there is no national emergency. It is just a little flu bug and a weak one at that. Just wash your hands with soap as you usually do, I hope.

It does NOT depend. Price gouging is illegal. Profiting off of people's misfortune is illegal. Always has been in a state of emergency.
The virus's spread, along with measures to contain it, is bringing disruptions that even the worst flu does not. Economic slowdowns (stock market plunge), supply chain disruptions, school closures, public transit restrictions and mandatory work-from-home policies all exact tolls, whether you get sick or not. If people can't work (businesses shut down) they can't pay the bills.
Hospitals and clinics are overrun and if our medical staff contracts the virus there will be fewer and fewer health specialists to confirm or treat the virus.
Most states are advising people to stay home. Avoid travel--large crowds--shaking hands--close contact with others because although this virus may NOT be dangerous to all, it is extremely contagious. AND it is deadly to those whose immune system is already compromised.

People dying is considered an emergency. AND gratefully, you are not running this nation.

I stole it from you. I'm surprised you don't remember. Although you did use dopey Donald. I told you I was stealing it.

Of course I remember. I was teasing you. Tell you what. You use "Dopey Don" and I'll use "Donald Dunce". That way we won't get confused as to whose post is whose. ;)

So I am not allowed to go to sleep or take a crap? Jeez!

It doesn't have to be done that way anymore. I told you that I do know the history but do not have to be bound by history. Historically blacks in America were enslaved and then segregated and people thought that was right too, should we not move forward or do we need to be bound by historical failure?

Communities can have gates and have HOAs and if you want to live in those communities then you must agree to pay the price and follow the rules. I live in one of those and it includes private security and First Response units. I certainly would pay for a fire truck too.

I also agree that people should not get any service that they prefer not to pay into. It is their right if they want to allow their house to burn down and they also have to reimburse others if the fire from their house causes damage to others.

It is the same with money. I have the right to do whatever I want with my money. I can give it away to the needy, to the rich, to my kids or simply throw it in the fireplace and roast marshmallows.
Riiiiiiiight. Living in one's own fantasies can lead to a rude awakening.
