Why on this dear earth do you think anybody is 'gaslighting' you.
Because you used the expression 'tin hat UFO complicity (sic) theories', which is pretty much the definition of gas-lighting.
Some brusque comments have been directed your way, sometimes pathetically for no good reason, sometimes with reason. I can only think you may indeed suffer from some victim complex if you take that as gaslighting. Maybe you should see a professional in that case. Other than that, get your adding machine out again and check these. 25 million people, 60% needed for herd immunity IF this virus is susceptable to that sort of thing, 3% case fatality rate comes in at around 450,000 dead. What sort of effect would that have on our economy? Yes, I know, the indirect costs of things like the effect that nearly half a million dead would have on the rest of the population is the sort of thing only a highly trained actuary could come close to, but you Don, what sort of figures do you think are reasonable to calculate in here?
What you have posted here is utter rubbish. You're assuming for a start that a hundred percent of the population are going to get COVID - the rest of your post is so patently alarmist I'm not even going to bother replying.
Don't worry, billy. Don's got his right wing flag flying showing that nothing matters except money. He has also recently polished up his persecution complex. You're right; professional help could do him good - I think we're now up to about half a dozen of our regular posters who have suggested it to him.
Don't agree with the majority of selfish people on Railpage = seek professional help.
Of course you agree with him, you're in the age group most likely to die from this thing if it becomes rampant and you aren't dependent on private sector activity to make your money; you just hope the government doesn't run out of money while they're fighting this thing on your behalf.
Just like RTT_Rules, you won't disclose your self-interest when you so gallantly go in fighting for truth, justice and the American way.
There are people out there who have lost livelihoods, businesses and their houses, whose attempts to start out in this world are completely ruined because of the brutal way we've fought this virus but they're all just collateral damage to keeping people like you safe. The destruction of the economy is entirely necessary to keep pensioners who already enjoyed the golden years this country had to offer safe with their superannuation and pensions while the young get to enjoy the ashes left behind when the whole thing burns down to protect YOU and your ilk. Right?
You are least owe those people an enormous debt of gratitude but you're too selfish to even acknowledge that instead pretending that there was no other choice.
