I don't believe that happened until someone here got sick. The first case in the US was January 20. Travel from China was not banned till January 31.

Lots of other " if's " to discuss when over...truth never changes...just sits there waiting to be found. Doesn't leave because someone denies it.

But, you cannot force feed truth. If you turn your back on it....

If you read the home page of TOTV, you will see that there are a myriad of subjects that can be discussed on the forum. To start with, there are two main ones--items relating to TV itself, and non-TV general items.


Going further, you'll see sports, jokes, NOTHING, Girl Talk, etc., etc. Take a look at the categories on the home page. If someone posts something in one category that a mod or Admin thinks doesn't belong in that category, they will move it and tell you.

I agree with that, particularly your last sentence, or at least the gist of that point.

Beginning of Feb....forgive me not sure of the date......on a network, seemed like an entire evening spent mocking those who feared a pandemic.....attended by top ...top ...govt official. And I believe about Feb 20, prime time (10PM) opened declaring zero deaths..not to worry so on

This forum is "Non Villages Discussion." You must have gotten lost.

For the most part, I agree with your posts. If you look back, that was my theme, but some posters continue to tell lies...flat out untruths and I got angry....lying always makes me angry.

You are generally correct, but ask you put this in your memory bank. When current admin disbanded the response team who would have been on this months in advance, BOTH PARTIES pleaded with the WH to reinstate. And were ignored. This is a basis to begin to understand the depth of the deaths caused by such political delays.

You are correct, and I agree...focus on this "curse", and I apologize...I tried, but you have heard me talk about lying...I detest liars and those who enable them, and certain posters have decided to use this forum to spread untruths and insinuations.

There WILL be time to revisit them....they will still exist. Thanks to the hated media, we have videos, etc.

God Bless you and your family and stay safe.

No, the White House didn't disband it's pandemic response office. I was there.

Your OPINION piece I read. You need to do background check on facts presented.

Another interesting bit.....

“Roughly 280 million masks in warehouses around the U.S. were purchased by foreign buyers on Monday alone, according to Forbes. A FEMA spokesperson said the agency ‘has not actively encouraged or discouraged U.S. companies from exporting overseas’.”"

Who might be managing this ?

I apologize for losing my temper with a few posters who are determined to lie, insinuate untruths, instead of actually wanting to know.

I will leave but my fuse is short with liars..very short...but leave you with....

on Feb. 7, with the coronavirus working its way around the United States, the White House administration sent some 17.8 tons of medical supplies, which included masks, respirators and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to China.

Google it, fact check it....but we are not supposed to question this ?

God Bless and everyone stay safe.

On February 7th the virus was not an issue here so we were trying to help. No good turn goes unpunished as we now know they lied through their teeth about cases and deaths. Bet they had a good laugh at our expense.

Yep.....then it was still a political dirty trick ? A hoax ?

Even though US INtelligence had been warning for, at that time about two months of what was coming, but heck, the jokes about those alarmed would never work, right ?
