CDC Quickly Changed Its Guidance On Limiting Choirs At Religious Services

Quote:
The warning was part of new guidance for leaders of faith-based organizations that the CDC had posted last Friday. It stated that they should:

"Consider suspending or at least decreasing use of a choir/musical ensembles and congregant singing, chanting, or reciting during services or other programming, if appropriate within the faith tradition. The act of singing may contribute to transmission of COVID-19, possibly through emission of aerosols."
But that wording disappeared over the weekend, apparently because the White House had not approved it. The passage was deleted because it had been published by mistake, according to a federal official, who didn't want to be identified because they were not authorized to speak about the changes.

"CDC posted the wrong version of the guidance," the official told NPR, adding, "The version that is currently up on the website is the version cleared by the White House."
So the CDC is taking orders from Trump and not science based evidence.

China is not intentionally spreading a virus that threatens lives all over the planet. We are.

OMG shut up. Strawberry jam on french fries can suck for different reasons than ketchup salad dressing but that doesn't mean we have to constantly compare the two just so everyone knows which one you hate most. We don't care.

China is constantly used as the benchmark for poor and oppressive governance. How long did we have to listen to the supposed existential angst of the Hong Kongers because of this horrid behemoth breathing down their throat? Hong Kong is just a mini-USA wannabe and we’re the bad guys. If it weren’t for fools like you sympathizing with Hong Kong and its disgusting virulent capitalism I wouldn’t constantly be making the case that everything they stand for mimics what we stand for and we stand for destroying the planet.

Fine. Except I also feel like China offers some hope to humanity. And they gave us Mao.

I mean you only care about this **** cause you care mostly about how this affects you personally so throwing Hong Kongers under the bus for a situation you have no stake in is about as self-absorbed as anything the Koch brothers have ever done. I'm all down with giving America the finger for being a capitalist individualist nightmare that trains its citizens to think of themselves first and last for the sake of producing compliant workers who care only for getting themselves through the next workday but All Governments Are Bastards.

All governments are led by a wealthy elite who on some level play the game of exploiting poor citizens for the benefit of themselves and other wealthy elites who they are economically tied to. How is China exempt from this? Hong Kong might be a capitalist ****hole but mainland China is not trying to save them from themselves, it's simply trying to bring them to heel so that they can be exploited, and Hong Kong has every reason to resist what is essentially a foreign invader trying to colonize them.

Hong Kong 100% belongs to China. Saying otherwise is ridiculous. So does Taiwan.

China is taking what’s theirs and there’s nothing American do about it. And if America wants war we’ll get it. And lose badly, thank god.

Is this what an anarchist sounds like? Supporting superstates and ownership of populations by their nations (as in the literal definition of "nation": a large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory)?

Does that mean that the states belong to America? If Virginia decides to secede and govern itself according to its own interests because the local population believe they have the right to decide their own fate without the interference of an empire does that mean you support America invading and suppressing revolt because we simply belong to the cultural American collective and have no right to separate ourselves?
