Re: Corona Virus

To be fair.. Trump is between a rock and a hard spot now. He's trying to provide supplies for the U.S., which is what any admirable leader would do. But my gripe is his failure to acquire these supplies back before this thing really broke out in the U.S. So what does he do now? Well... I admit, that...

Re: Corona Virus

On a less hostile note, I once again question how bad this pandemic really is nation wide (I know things are a mess in New York). I'm found out that the Virginia Department of Health isn't reporting recoveries. I wonder how many other states aren't reporting recoveries either? It seems that would be...

Re: Corona Virus

Boy am I glad we have a health service! Yeah... rub it in! :wink: :P On a related note, there has been a furore about lack of PPE and why there aren't enough gloves and masks, leading to Trump and his mob hi-jacking the supply to Canada, why, because he can I've also heard about the American plane ...

Re: Corona Virus

Moonshadow, Pardon my ignorance about why MA and NY license plates would draw negative attention. Is that because they are Yankees? Generally there would be no issues.. but New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, etc are where most of the covid19 cases are at the moment. Locals in other parts of the c...

Re: Corona Virus

Complicating matters is my work van is parked in my driveway in Virginia yet bears a Tennessee tag... If some little tin god challenges you just tell him that's a company vehicle for use in company business only. That is not a crime. Hey, it could be worse -- it could have Massachusetts tags on it....

Re: Corona Virus

I admit... I have no desire to leave Virginia at this time. I wonder if I would be hassled driving in Tennessee with a Virginia tag?

Re: Corona Virus

Per governor Northam's (Virginia) executive order, we can be out as long as we are not in a group larger than 10 people. Even non essential businesses can operate as long as they adhere to no more than 10 patrons in the store. Places like bowling alleys, lodges, theaters, etc are closed by executive...

Re: Corona Virus

Got curious and tuned in for a few minutes of Trumps address. Wasn't too bad then here it came... "You know uh... approval ratings are lower than they've ever been for un... fake news... blah blah blah" Oh for Gods sake... Then we have this... https://youtu.be/3n7jluPopaQ God I envy you British... s...

Re: Corona Virus

By God when I mess up a machine at work... I have to answer for it, humble myself and ultimately WORK THE PROBLEM. Trump is not immune just because he's Trump and pretends to be a Christian! Holding this nation together his job... it is "his machine"... it is responsibility. If that's too much... st...

Re: Corona Virus

A very large part of the problem is that the US spent the first six or eight weeks in denial of the problem and by the time anybody got a grip on the matter it was already out of control. "I'll have this fixed by Easter!" Yeah, right. The numbers coming out of Washington are nonsensical and don't p...

Re: Corona Virus

Calm down Moon! It looks like you are arguing with yourself! I am calm... I'm just stating it like it is. It sucks. Our leaders suck, our system sucks, it all sucks! And now... we will pay the price. But will we learn? Nnnnnnnnnope! Understand B&B... I'm one of the few U.S. wage earners still activ...

Re: Corona Virus

The source of America's problems I believe came down to our inability of testing. Even to this day, test are in short supply, meanwhile many other nations with high population densities have managed to bring their outbreak under control. We really have no idea who has this and who doesn't. Oh and ju...

Re: Corona Virus

On media fear mongering: That's because the media needs eye balls for advertisers! Fear (and hate) sells... it's the same reason the media devote so much attention on other matters that quite frankly, really aren't a big deal. Right now fear is in season with this virus, but when this passes, it wil...
