    Worried?

    Also, yesterday I'm waiting for a box of vitamins - So it comes late in the day, comes to my door
    and I open the door and see my first Chinese letter carrier - Normally I won't think twice about it
    and he was wearing gloves, but no face mask.

    But I guess the paranoia is even getting to me - Immediately took my spray bottle of alcohol and
    sprayed the box on the outside and of course washed my hands.

    Figured I'd let the box sit for a day or two - Just in case!

    Remember the children in cages? Not many seem to. I guess RealityNews has moved on and rendered them invisible.

    I guess they're comparatively safe from the pandemic. Probably have toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

    It's interesting how everywhere in the world ppl don't trust politicians, yet we can't get rid of them. This YouTube guy rates trustworthiness of politicians bellow that of car salesmen:

    Are new car salesmen trustworthy, in contrast to used car salesmen?

    The small one traffic light town that's close to my house has a Chinese take out joint and I've noticed its been closed for over two weeks, the ultra-left like AOC would blame that on racism instead of the coronavirus...I'd also like to mention there is also an Italian restaurant on the opposite side of town, its been closed for a week now...

    And that's the crazy, dangerous part of a world wide panic - People start to react irrationally.

    There is probably no more chance of getting the virus in an American Chinese or Italian restaurant
    than of getting it from my Chinese letter carrier.

    Conspiracy nuts may think the're playing some psycho drama on the public to see how people react.

    On the other hand it seems like an episode out of Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone"

    Trump says he backs House coronavirus bill, says members of both parties should 'VOTE YES'

    President Trump said Friday night that he supported a coronavirus response package negotiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in an apparent effort to get skeptical House Republicans on board with the legislation.

    "I fully support H.R. 6201: Families First CoronaVirus Response Act, which will be voted on in the House this evening," Trump tweeted. "This Bill will follow my direction for free CoronaVirus tests, and paid sick leave for our impacted American workers ..."

    "I encourage all Republicans and Democrats to come together and VOTE YES!" Trump later added. "I will always put the health and well-being of Americans FIRST. Look forward to signing the final bill, ASAP!"

    Pelosi intially informed colleagues of a deal with the Trump administration at around 6 p.m. ET. “We are proud to have reached an agreement with the administration to resolve outstanding challenges, and now will soon pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act,” the California Democrat said in an evening letter to colleagues.

    I watched most of the Joe and Bernie show last night. Two old white men talking about being inclusive and how to beat another old white man who is really more orange.

    I actually like Bernie and a lot of what he has to say. Never going to happen, but I can't help but like him.

    As for Joe, the news organs can excuse a lot with the stutter he may or may not have always had, but Number One .....only once did he get to Number Two, and Number One got repeated a few times. What's with the pencil? Making a note to pick up toilet paper on the way home? Maybe it's there to give his hand something to do other than shake.

    My sister-in-law is a lifelong Democrat and a doctor (Nursing) and sees some issues with Gramps.

    A quarter of Europeans want AI to replace politicians. That’s a terrible idea.

    Your election, your chance. Since nobody believes politicians anyway we should consider replacing them with AI. For all it's faults AI has two virtues that has not been praised, HONESTY and IMPARTIALITY.

    Since AI has no survival instinct it is always impartial and honest. And in all fairness, AI will always be more competent than politicians like Trump and Bush Jr.

    After todays big wins in Florida, Illinois, and Arizona
    - It looks like the nomination is in Biden's hands.


    But by the way the're treating this so called pandemic

    - Are we even going to have an election in 2020 ?

    I have run into a few who also think coronavirus is some sort of election year stunt. In fact, one was quite vocal about it.

    It isn't but one thing is certain: the media are a bunch of cackleheads. They are supposed to be a public service. In fact, the original reason we have news on TV at all was to leaven the entertainment. Now it's flipped. News is entertainment. They are fanning the flames and not helping anybody. I stick to C-Span and prefer to see it myself instead of having it chewed up and vomited into my skull.

    Consider this. Trump got elected because he struck a nerve and managed to plow through the traditional politicians like wet toilet paper, many of who now bend the knee. Since then there has been howling and speaking in tongues from all quarters on all levels and we have all gone to Ridiculous Speed over every detail. But fake Russian interference couldn't oust him, that ass clenching stupid waste of time impeachment couldn't oust him. Grampa Joe can't get it done, ordinarily.

    But the dragon glass that can actually do anything damage to him is DT himself. Even with all the allowances I can stomach he absolutely cannot speak coherently - he's choking - on this national emergency. So what they couldn't take away from him maybe they will inherit by default. Like my dog who finally catches the UPS truck and doesn't know what to do next.

    I think that lying plastic surgery faced pony soldier just might pick Hillary as his running mate, and then the shit will hit the fan. Hugely.

    Hey - remember this is somehow supposed to be an election year?

    I saw the CNN Town Hall with Biden last night. This fluff piece has no bearing on the stumbling, bumbling mess I saw last night. You know Anderson Cooper must be cringing, the way Bernie Sanders undoubtedly was during that 'debate.'

    5 takeaways from Joe Biden's CNN town hall on the coronavirus response - CNNPolitics

    Number 1 - always the answer. Rarely a number 2. There was a Number 3 last night and then a backtrack to mention Number 2 that got left out. This guy isn't even cleaning out his own undershorts, how they're going to prop him up for any length of time is a mystery.

    Number 1 - apparently the people who normally polish and pose Biden and Nancy Pelosi are quarantined. Saw Rachel Maddow congratulate her on her 80th birthday last night and you could just see her flinch at that. The makeup wasn't done and it was totally visible let's just say the optics weren't good. Looked more like the 10th anniversary of her 80th birthday.

    I've been considering something similar, the President currently has the highest approval rating he has ever held thus far, but this crisis is far from over and I have the feeling he is not going to be able to do what is necessary and it will cost him re-election...Time will tell for sure...
