Oh, and you're just so serious about Trump being a dictator and taking all his orders from Putin...
You can be quite ridiculous at times.

Capitalism requires political stability in so far as property rights and the enforcement of contracts. A lot of capitalist do very well when there is economic instability, war, etc.

Whose economy? You ramble on about dictatorships and how they are bad. China is a communist dictatorship. Isn't it a good thing then if the dictatorship is facing economic hardship from a plague? Doesn't that portend a major threat to the dictatorship and create an opening for democracy?

"The Reagan"? "Tried to let"? As if someone was trying to stop AIDS with a cure or vaccine and Reagan kept getting in the way? AIDS was the natural outcome of well educated adults who knew about sexually transmitted diseases, had full knowledge of the scientific method, and yet encouraged younger people to have promiscuous sex outside of wedlock with multiple partners, embrace homosexuality, bestiality, etc. It was bound to end in disaster and it did. Libertines killing 35 million people with their shitty advice is terrible enough, but to then somehow blame it all on Ronald Reagan is frankly beyond the pale. If people had listened to Ronald Reagan, there would be no AIDS epidemic, STD epidemic generally, or drug epidemic, but it would be a major buzz kill for libertines.

Whose procedure is this? Generally, presidents don't follow. They lead.

Is that like it's not a stretch to call Bruce Jenner as Kaitlyn Jenner, because that's exactly what he wants to be? That might not be stretch for you, but it is for me. Dude looks like a lady... but he's still a dude.
"This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science."
