I'm genuinely baffled as to wear you got that from. Who has said that? They are both awful.

It's the same contingent of Brahmin leftists who refuse to have a discussion about two-tiered healthcare because of the ottoman empire boogieman.

The same contingent of posters who need a big house vs the starter home their parents enjoyed or who took trips to Mexico instead of saving for a rainy day.

Brahmin doctors of the ottoman empire are paid too much and they should be happy to live in 1000 sqft 1950s houses like my parents generation.

This lockdown is getting to you, man. You should chill. Maybe try a wellness app - Headspace is good.

Actually I feel pretty great the last few weeks, thanks for checking in. It's been fun watching you do your thing, like Calgarypucks own miniature wellness app.

Just to add: because some of the people provide information / knowledge on China, it doesn't necessarily mean they support the regime. To paraphrase a famous verbiage: it's good to have knowledge on your friends; but it's vital to have accurate knowledge on your enemies.

As some expected, China has committed a boatload of funding to the WHO - 2 billion - to fight the pandemic. Filling the hole in funded caused by Trump's decision

Geopolitically at some point a more clever president with foreign policy skills will have to attempt to break up this reborn alliance between China and Russia. Nixon accomplished this previously and there are many areas where differences can be exploited.

Trump has cut ties with WHO in his latest attempt to distract from his ineptness.
