Trump offers 'large sums' for exclusive access to coronavirus vaccine

quote [ German government tries to fight off aggressive takeover bid by US, say reports. Trump was doing everything to secure a vaccine against the coronavirus for the US, “but for the US only”. ]

Tagged as politics. Pretty clever, because while something like this is unlikely to succeed, it will play very well with the plebs at home

Makes abundantly clear that Trump's ilk and the local guy busted for price-gouging hand sanitizer are birds of a feather, unable or unwilling to understand why profiting from people's needs in an emergency is unethical. Only difference between them is scope.

Unfortunately, Scope isn't effective.

I hope everyone is enjoying this year's special sneak preview of the "Adaptation" method of handling Climate Change and the joys of ecofascism it will bring us.

Horse racing in England and Wales set to be run behind closed doors

We'll hold the horse racing on in the kitchen, the football in the living room, and this year the Wimbledon Finals will be in the bathroom.

There's all sorts of national security law (nationalizing companies, seizing intellectual property, etc) that could come into play here. From both sides. Though primarily a potential temptation for the Germans at this point. In times like these, if governments really want to, companies and their products can be seized and put to a national government's use.

The company already said, they wouldn't do it. Their old CEO did actually visit White House staff though.

The dorms by me are closing and they're looking for folks who can offer space. I have room to spare, but I'm a recluse and am torn between "oh no, those poor people!" and "oh no, people!"

That okra looks like it has the virus.
