    As I predicated when Dr Amy Goebbels shut down the Ohio schools, the complaints about school funding differences impacting remote learning have started….be ready of the $billion school technology blowout, cuz….its for the children.

      Should be interesting how such an “advanced” state like Ohio gets to cry for I/T money when my kindergarten aged granddaughter has been doing computer based remote public school for the past 3 weeks in “backwards” Arkansas.

      Also, interesting when big tech showers free computers on school districts in return for the infrastructure contract and/or tax break.

        Doc,
        Ohio schools are funded via property taxes. This will be a state funding issue to shift money to the larger, urban districts from the “wealthy” suburbs. Yes, big tech will have lobbyist all over Columbus pushing for this….it will also allow them to continue to make sure the kids get their daily dose of CNN-10.

          Re-read the comment. The concern is the next bailout will aimed at ISD’s across the US to “improve” their remote learning capabilities. Property taxes is the method across the US in most states for funding their ISD’s and Community Colleges.

          I live in Collin County and I am very familiar with the Robinhood movements, especially across Texas.

          I also follow how the redistributed money is often squandered on everything but improving the classroom level of education systems. Much of the money is used to create utterly useless management, specialist and assessment staff positions.

        I have had two people try to sell me school laptops in the last year. Both cases they could not log into the laptop and asked if I could crack the password. Both laptops had hard drives locked with bitlocker so I could not change password and I noticed stickers had been removed. After I told them I could not crack password both asked if I wanted to buy the laptop.

      Please. My kids go to parochial school, and our teachers are doing FT school via their personal phones, computers, etc. Parochial teachers are paid far less than public school teachers, and parochial schools spend a third as much per student as public schools. If anyone in the student’s house has access to the internet they can easily do remote learning.

      The public school counties around me just aren’t even trying to do online learning and 99% of the students households have cell phones, tablets, laptops…

    • They don’t want the masses to figure out that most schooling could be taught online and that we really don’t need the bloated school bureaucracy. Your children should be taught by the best instructors out there who may or may not work in your area. They record their lectures and then have an online question and answer session afterwards.

        Yep. Just how valuable are brick and mortar educators when they are doing online education? They aren’t even skilled in online education.
        Yet, the public is expected to pay (overpay) full price for this ad how education?
        If this goes on into next September, the blowback on public brick and mortar will be startling, imo.
        Full payment, via property taxes, for amateur online education will not fly.

    Just left one of my favorite markets in NYC. NYPD was walking through counting people and observing our social distancing. It was off-putting and I felt like I was in the USSR. Everyone was nervous like they had done something wrong, employees and customers alike. On the way out an employee, talking to another, was mentioning how someone had “reported” them. The market had well under the “50 persons” noted on the door. When I left, there was a monitor at the door with a clicker. I can’t imagine living like this for an extended period of time.

      Walking up to the grocery store there was a line before it opened, and a police car with the lights on, and tape on the ground where we are supposed to stand with the manager yelling “social distancing!”. I said to myself “welcome to the Soviet Union” and we get up to the line, and a guy waiting in line said “it’s like Russia isn’t it?” I told him wow, I was just thinking that.

      I’m assuming a lot of us grew up in the 80s and that time left an impression on us all.

          Real world experience today trying to contact DES here in Arizona for unemployment benefits in the CARES act. DES administers the unemployment stuff here in AZ and like most government entities, has a horrible reputation and is beyond criminally slow.

          I called at 7am as extended hours started. After 2 hours and 8 minutes on hold, a guy picks up.

          I asked when the website and application would be updated to allow we self employed folks the ability to apply because that’s new under the CARES act.

          “Nothing has been approved yet”.

          No, President Trump signed the bill on Friday, it’s law now.

          “That’s only for a one time payment of $1200, has nothing to do with unemployment”.

          No, self employed unemployment benefits are part of the new law.

          “Nothing has been approved yet, sorry sir”. Click.

          Hung up on me. I realize it has only been since Friday but having front line workers who are totally clueless is really not a good way to assist people. He didn’t even know the bill had been signed.

          As a sole proprietor who’s business has completely stopped, I’m looking at all options. The SBA paycheck protection loan is also a possibility. Hopefully the SBA banks/lenders get up to speed quickly.

        We also have the tape, on sidewalks and for lines at checkout. And I have seen police cars slowly driving around with their lights on. I notice people staring at the ground as they walk. It’s uncomfortable and scary. I’m happy to hear about your experience with the guy in line, something similar happened to me when I was in line a couple of days ago at another market, and the guy behind me caught my eye and said “I hope this doesn’t become the norm” I said something about being good little soldiers and it’s a great practice run for communism, and he said “that’s my fear”. It’s comforting to find others (outside of the Treehouse) are having similar feelings and fears.

        My son works at a Trader Joe’s in the Seattle area and he said they are doing the same thing. People line up outside and they let a certain number in and as one leaves another is allowed to enter. I understand the need to keep everything orderly so that people don’t get knocked over by the crazies running for the toilet paper, but the idea that we are all so easily acquiescing to having our supplies rationed and our behaviors so tightly controlled, scares me far-far more then any flu virus!

Trader Joe’s relatively small footprint stores had always been laid out quite differently from larger supermarkets, let alone big box chains. It was my understanding TJ had adopted this 50 person limit on its own shortly after the federal guidelines appeared, and before our Royal Governor and their minions (unfortunately, backed with federal funds and the National Guard in needed) started issuing regal edicts.

          What would you suggest people do? We are generally a law abiding and compassionate society so trying to do the right thing would be our first instinct when we think there is a serious problem that will effect all of us. I think people will go along for a while longer and let this play out some. We unfortunately are getting so many mixed signals and hype from both sides that it is hard for any of us to know right now what the real facts are. After April 30, there should be enough information and clear patterns on how this virus has proceeded and what the consequences are going to be. After that date, it will be interesting to see just how tolerant folks will be, imo. Of course, it all depends on what we are being told and what is actually the truth and if we can see the difference finally.

          From the several front line health professionals I know here, this is a very nasty virus if you react to it severely. They were a little shell shocked after the first week of patients showing up in larger numbers at their hospitals. They don’t lie to me, they are not rattled easily and I know I don’t want to catch this not knowing if I would be one of those who reacted poorly to it. One said at his hospital the protocol using the hyroxy/azith treatment off label is there but has not said how or if it was helping people yet, to me anyway. I know some patients cannot take it if they don’t pass some kind of test that they get prior. Not sure what it was because I didn’t ask for much info at that point, but some people were not able to use the hydroxychloroquine. Something about if you score more than 400 measurement you were not eligible because it would harm you. Might have been a cardiovascular test. I just didn’t bug them for specifics and didn’t catch the whole gist of what they said.

          I am willing to wait a bit and I know people are hurting and the economy is at great risk. If we are being lied to for political reasons or to see if we are easily made compliant about being ordered around by the govt. then it will come out and I am sure we the people will react appropriately. I think we just don’t know enough yet. PT knows way more than we do so I will put my faith in that. For now.

He’s also surrounded by not Dems who make up a large portion of his customer base, but I don’t think he has any aspirations to be a Dear Leader anyway. He just thinks liberals are really about civil rights. Bless his heart. He means well.

          Our sheriff, a huge 2nd Amendment, rule-of-law guy, would spit nails, if the mayor or solicitor or somebody decided we needed to protect the “health” of criminals by turning them loose on the public. Don’t know about the city police chief, but his officers probably wouldn’t react well, nor would the locals, within city limits.

      Here’s my ground report from today in blue MA (which is not a hot spot but kinda warm relative to surrounding states – and I am in the worst county of the state, because it includes Cambridge with the Communist Chinese epicenter at Harvard U, not to mention BioGen).

      I needed milk and some fresh things so went midafternoon to our best local chain, Market Basket. (Again, this is a slightly smaller chain here in Northeast and a very good business.)

      No cops, just the store managing itself. They have slightly narrower aisles than some stores so they had marked them all with signs and arrows as one-way. They had also marked 6-foot tape at the registers. Other than that there was no “police-state” presence but there was certainly unusual solemnity, staff looked a bit sober in general. I think this is because this particular store was just reported in the news yesterday as having a Wuhan case. I thanked every one I came within speaking distance of, and they sort of tried to smile…

      Store was only about 1/3 to 1/2 full of customers – I think people are going back to buying pretty normally around here. Several wearing masks but not many. One older masked woman waved me back when I failed to notice I was over the tape at the register behind her, looking very sour. At my turn, an older gentleman came closer in back of me and I just smiled at him. I can guess to which political party each of them belonged 🙄.

      The amazing part was the stock. They had practically everything! Even t.p. – except that it was a more expensive name brand as opposed to their excellent more economical store brand, and limit 1 package (which despite being “rationing” seems to me also pretty rational at this time). They even had some sales of things that I stocked up on because I will need them down the road.

      And by the way, a visit over the weekend to another excellent local chain Hannaford was pretty similar, except not quite as hushed as my town which is closer to the epicenter. That store was also very well stocked (though no t.p.).

      Funny that I never once had a Soviet Russia feeling. But I did have a Communist China one. It was the somberness and the masks and the total lack of human engagement that made it feel that way… Then again, Massachusetts people have always been some of the most personally reserved in the Northeast.

          Here is how to freak out a climate changer. Fill a 16 oz. cheap plastic water bottle with half water and half CO2. To do this fill the plastic water bottle with water and put it upside down in a large pot of water. Take off the cap and fill the bottle half full of CO2. Make sure you purge all the air out of the tube first so only pure CO2 gets in.

          With the top of the bottle still immersed in water, screw the top back on the bottle. Now hand the bottle to your climate changer friend and ask them to shake the bottle vigorously.

          Nearly all the CO2 will be absorbed into the water and the bottle will crush. Then ask them what happened to all the CO2 they are so worried about.

          Just make sure you use a real cheap water bottle that crushes easily for maximum effect. Also practice this a few times to get it right. You can make a cheap CO2 generator with vinegar and baking soda. You want the CO2 generator to purge all the air out of the bottle and fill tube.

          He can cut off federal emergency funding IMMEDIATELY for any State that issues what he considers draconian and unconstitutional orders (e.g., closing churches). He could effect the same thing in many cases by simply saying the federal government deems the following businesses, services and entities “essential” ones, which States getting federal emergency funding may not interfere with.

          Not one Governor issued a regal decree telling its subjects they were to stay at home and shut their businesses unless the Sovereign in its discretion said they were “essential,” until AFTER DJT declared an Emergency and opened the spigot of unlimited federal funding to back any such orders.

Wow… maybe they can start to understand that our SUN/Universe is variable… the energy output is not limited by our vision… but includes a broad spectrum of energies. The models can be changed to actually include the energy sources in our universe… not just those that are convenient to the political story. How about Plasma Climate Forcing….It will be included in the next UN IPCC Climate Report…

      Actually, I just watched a ‘History of the Great Lakes’ documentary and there used to be a mile high glacier where Detroit is right now. As far as I can tell, we have had ‘climate change’ for 10, 25, 100 thousand years if not millions. I suppose burning oil for fuel is releasing ancient toxic dinosaur farts or something and causing a continuance of the changes that have been taking place as documented in the fossil records or something.

        Cold times are dry times because so much of the earths water is locked up in ice. During the last glaciation, commonly referred to as the great ice age, sea levels ran nearly 400′ lower than they are at the present. There were actually settlements in portions of areas that are now at the bottom of what we call the English Channel. The areas of the US that were not under ice were dryer with atmospheric moisture increasing as one got closer to the equator. The places that are now forest and not under ice were savannas, the places that are grass lands that were not under ice were semi-arid desert, etc.

      • There has not been a correct, or even fully competent, scientific study, conversation, or theory about the geological past of Earth, since Darwin’s evolution theory was forced upon the world by the predecessors of today’s Insane Left Democrats. It was THE revolution of the 19th century, and the physical sciences have all gone further and further wrong ever since; I write this as a physicist myself (albeit one unconnected to any institution, and thus powerless to get anyone in science to listen and learn just “what went wrong”).

        But I digress…I am posting this comment to inform you that the theory of evolution, and the assumption of uniformitarianism in the development of the Earth into the complex form we observe today, did have competent critics, before the Darwinian “iron curtain” came down over the world. I recommend you go to sacred-texts.com, and find and download the 1883 book, “Ragnarok: Age of Fire and Gravel”, by Ignatius Donnelly, the most famous such book then, critical of the “ice ages” theory, which is now wrongly (and incompetently) touted as fact.

        I have myself proved the falsity of all of today’s theories, in the earth and life sciences. You should read my “Challenge to Earth Scientists” posts, back in 2009, on my blog, theendofthemystery.blogspot.com, especially the first and third in that series.

        We are coming out of the Little Ice Age, which was ending circa 1850.
        Until we peak and remain at some point, or turn and go back to the next mini-ice age, we can expect the trend to be: climbing average planet temps from 1850 through the present, and increasing CO2, following temps and biological activity.

        We are also supposedly coming out of a major Ice Age, which was supposedly wrapping up 11,000 years ago. Same story, except the Major Ice Age was more deeply cold than the Little Ice Age. Same story: temps were very low then, and CO2 was low, and as we come out of that Ice Age, temps are gradually warming.

        We do have actual decent human being observed temps from 1850 For sure. Those records have errors, real or imagined, and are limited: we now have temps across time for a lot more of the planet than we have going back to 1850, for sure. But, overall, the rising temp trend 1850 – now is pretty darn obvious. It is not something new, happening with the advent of the SUV. There is no noticeable deviation from the general trend, unless you do some trickery with your data.

        We do not have decent human-eyewitnessed measures of temp going back to 10,000 years ago. Humans did not really start recording things until – what? at the most circa 7,000 years ago. And, we did not have thermometers until – good measurement – maybe the recent 400 years.

        So, we have to use “proxy” indicators of what the temps may have been. But if the earth is 10,000+ years old, it was almost certainly very cold, relative to now, and we have been in a warming trend from then until now. With no notable deviation from this trend, as best as can be guesstimated.

        So, Greens can expect gradual rise in temps, on average, across time, and unless we turn and head for another ice age, they can predict higher temps, plus then cry that it is our SUVs.

        In the “global warming” analyses, what they do is: develop models of what predicts the wiggles in these long-term trends. This math is similar or the same to modeling done to predict general economic activity from a range of trends, and thus know when to buy or sell.

        If they include most of the relevant factors, they can model an algorithm and see how well it recreates the dips and rises going backward. This is “training” the model. If it does fairly well, then they guess that they have included most of the relevant variables, and given them proper weightings and proper linked dependencies.

        For declaring that there is man-made global warming, they develop a model, and include the additional CO2 that is known to have come from industrialization. This is a new, unique contributor to the predictor measures on the one side of the equals sign. They then attempt to model 2 things:
        First, with new-CO2 included, albeit at zero levels, re-create past temp trends, then
        Second: show that new-CO2 contributes a statistically significant degree of variation in current, recent temp zig-and-zag, above the noted, established measures.

        Now, this is almost impossible, mathematically, or statistically, speaking.

        The fossil-fuel-added CO2 is so miniscule, and all measures so shaky, that this is laughable. Nonetheless. Plenty of fame and money for declaring you have done this.

        Now, once you have your model ,with the key measures, and key dependencies or feedbacks, and the various thresholds in these feedbacks, just right, then you can model a prediction for the future.

        This is where the Doomsday Scenarios come from.

        They have been mathematically modeling the Future for decades, now. As time goes by, we can see how wrong the models have been.

        No worries – they just declare that, with more brainpower devoted, etc., they have “adjusted,” or “fixed,” or “improved” the models. Now, their predictions from 20 years ago have all failed, but rest assured the current ones are totally accurate. Until not, at which time they reassert that things are now new and improved.

        The other line is this: “we have modeled the atmosphere temp, and we are no now in catastrophe, but we very soon will be – yes, a Tipping Point will soon be reached.”

        If it fails to come tomorrow, they just declare they were a bit off in modeling, and it will surely be next week.

          Technically in Geologic terms, coming out of an Ice age means virtually ice free poles. We are most likely in an “interglacial” period, meaning we will see another period of glaciation and the poles will not become ice free before that happens. A fair number of the people that study that kind of stuff have stated that this interglacial period we are in is due to start winding down but of course they are referring to geological time scales.

      A very interesting video from iamjohncullen, who claims to have been an early employee at Oracle who helped merge data with maps to create the data mapping tools we see everywhere today, including on the JohnsHopkins site tracking the Coronavirus, and who has downloaded the CDC’s data bases for Covid19 and other diseases. He sees evidence of suspicious activity. He asks a series of questions, Q like, of Dr. Fauci, about other maps coming from the same databases, principally,

      How is it possible that, outside Hubei province, the rest of China has had way fewer deaths than any of a long list of countries with populations totaling a fraction of China’s unaffected population.

      The seasonal flu this year killed 80,000 Americans, the largest death total ever, including >4000 per week in January, and there was no news from the CDC about it? Why not?

      There are a series of other maps that are shown a couple of times, asking Dr. Fauci why we’re not hearing about them, yet their meaning is obscure. The effect is Q like, both in highlighting unlikely coincidences that are NOT looked at by MSM, except to brand questions about them “conspiracy theories, and in sharing (maps or pictures) not entirely explained, as if baiting Deep State Resisters that their supposedly hidden actions have been watched and recorded.

      The effect is unnerving, yet fascinating, begging the much-frayed question, when will anyone from the Deep State ever be held accountable?

      It all gives extra meaning to Sundance’s recent capture of Fauci reacting to President Trump’s comment about Pompeo needing to leave to go the “Deep State Department.”
      Fauci first rolled his eyes at the joke, then lowered them and rubbed his forehead with a look that said “deep anxiety” to me.

      I’d recommend this for anyone who ever found any of Q’s posts worthwhile.

        The one thing that is interesting and possibly telling is that 80,000 number. If that number of individuals have died from influenza, then that means statistically 10’s of millions of individuals have been infected with a particularly virulent strain of it this season. Has this year’s influenza inflated the effects of COVID-19’s results? In other words, how many of COVID-19 deaths were the result of this years bad influenza combined with CV, a double whammy? I haven’t seen any data on those who have died from COVID-19 who may have also been infected with this season’s influenza.

The only place where Communism still holds significant sway is in China, and I don’t give that social experiment another ten years – it is already crumbling there. But “Russophobia” still remains curiously strong in the United States. “Who hacked our elections from ten thousand miles away?” There could be only one answer, and nobody dared question it.

        Brazil, RUSSIA, India, China and South Africa.

    NYSCOPBA President Tests Positive forCOVID-19; Union Pleads for State to Keep Members Safe Union calls for the use of Personal Protection Equipment for all members of Immediate ReleaseMarch30, 2020Albany, NY–The New York State Correctional Officers & Police Benevolent Association (NYSCOPBA) today announced that Union President Michael B. Powers tested positive forCOVID-19.Powers, who is regularly in contact with correction officers from every corner of the state, has been self-quarantining at his home for the last several days.The news reaffirms the Union’s position that the State, including the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) and the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), must take immediate action to further prevent the spread oftheCOVID-19virus in our state correctional and mental health facilities.NYSCOPBA is imploring the State to allow all employees working in correctional facilities, mental health facilities, parole offices and other agencies deemed essential, the latitude to use the necessary personal protective equipment (PPEs) to assist in preventing the spread; specifically N95 masks, gloves and disposable smocks. Currently in DOCCS, only those employees who work in isolated or quarantined units are provided PPEs.Continuing to prevent the staff from protecting themselves will not only jeopardize the staff, inmates and inmate-patients, but also raises the likelihood of the virus being spread outside of the work sites.NYSCOPBA is committed to working with the State to promote safe and healthy working conditions. If financial constraints are preventing the State from providing the life-saving equipment needed to protect its workforce, then NYSCOPBA is prepared to meet the needs of our members and provide the essential equipment. NYSCOPBA has already made repeated requests to limit exposures. In letters dated March 9th and March 14thand sent to multiple state agencies, NYSCOPBA outlined their demands calling for several preventative measures to quell the spread of the virus. Initially, those demands were not met with the urgency that this situation requires. More recently though, the DOCCS has been providing direction and addressing several of the issues raised by the Union; but there is certainly more that needs to be done. Conversely, OMH has not consistently communicated with the Union or taken the necessary precautions to protect the staff and patients in the mental health facilities. This is unacceptable and must be addressed.NYSCOPBA President Michael B. Powers stated that, “The dedicated members of NYSCOPBA are mandated to work on the front lines during the COVID-19 crisis. I am calling on the Governor to make employee safety a priority and direct his state agencies to allow ALL staff members the ability to use basic personal protection equipment. If the State cannot pay for it, then allow NYSCOPBA to help. Each day that our members are prohibited from wearing protective equipment,they are exposed to being infected and spreading the virus inside and outside of the facilities. We recognize and appreciate that some of our concerns have been addressed. However, further delays to our reasonable requests to protect staff must not continue. The members of NYSCOPBA must be afforded the ability to protect themselves. The use of PPEs to limit our members from exposure and infection makes sense. Too much time has already passed. Every day we are discovering more positive tests for COVID-19. The State must act now before it is too late, and we’re faced with a bigger crisis inside the state’s prison and mental health systems.”Last week the New York City Department of Corrections, working with the NYC COBA, announced that staff would have permission to use their own N95 respirator or surgical masks and promised to distribute more masks to staff as the virus spreads. In an unprecedented move, the city corrections department also announced that the Eric. M. Taylor Center at Rikers Island, which was closed earlier this year, would reopen to help increase social distancing. The State has failed to enact these reasonable measures for the protection of the members of NYSCOPBA.Powers continued, “To date, there are approximately 56 state correction officers and sergeants that have tested positive for COVID-19, including me. One of the officers is hospitalized and requires the use of a ventilator. Additionally, hundreds of DOCCS employees are under self-quarantine or directed by their personal physicians to remain under quarantine. In OMH/OPWDD, approximately 35 employees are under orders to quarantine. Six OMH/OPWDD employees have tested positive for the virus. Of those six positive tests, two are hospitalized with one remaining in critical condition. We can be assured that the total of positive cases will increase. The numbers underscore the fact that our state facilities are on the cusp of a wide outbreak. This concern must be taken seriously, and certain measures must be put in place immediately to protect staff.”In addition to the requests for PPEs, NYSCOPBA is also seeking immediate action to provide protections for members considered vulnerable or high-risk; accommodations for members who work in isolation units; increased testing for staff, inmates and patients; strict adherence to DOH and CDC guidelines; and more stringent transportation and movement policies. NYSCOPBA is extremely concerned by OMH’s failure to discontinue patient admissions and patient movement from high-risk/high-infection areas to upstate OMH Facilities. Continuing with these ill-advised practices will undoubtedly increase exposures in those communities.

    STOP THE INSANITY!

    Trump Administration needs to get a grip on this to stop the tyrannical actions occurring across this country under the guise of compassionate response to coronavirus. When those two physicians, who are Swamp Dwellers (hello…agenda anyone) BTW, came into the administration and said “we need to shut down the economy” the response should have been “we cannot shut down the economy of the United States. So what things can we do – control of flights in and out, borders, infection control guidelines, treatments, containment in counties with high numbers, etc. to control the spread.” That is what should have happened. Give the American people credit. Realize the media is hated and not credible. They have no power to formulate opinion try as they might.

    Now, we have allowed tyrannical Governors free reign to do outrageous things like ordering people to stay at home, closing down schools for an entire year, etc. It is outrageous and antithetical to our country’s founding. So, are we going to do this for any epidemic? Is our response going to be totally out of proportion to the actual issue at hand? Yes, there should be a serious response. But not this. There should be an informed response. But not this. This is giving way to tyrannical power grabs and chaos. FOCUS THE RESPONSE. Do not apply the response to the entire country in a cookie-cutter approach that is worse than the issue at hand. The President’s instincts were right in the beginning.

    I am not criticizing our wonderful President and I know he is surrounded by EVIL plotters willing to do anything necessary to bring down this President and America. Not at all. These EVIL plotters have been doing this since before the election. Who on Earth would formulate a movement called “The Resistance” in a free Republic, the United States? Who? A group who does not give a ____ about the people, only about their power. IMHO, perhaps the following actions might be prudent:

    1. Re-open the economy. Keep areas that have high incidence contained. Continue all infection control guidelines in the United States – not by order of a Governor but by guidelines produced by CDC. Just like any other virus, bacterial infection, or other disease has been addressed in this country for years.

    2. Realize the media is a propagandist leftist POS institution that has no problem peddling elevated narratives skewed to their agenda. This includes polling, Mr. President. Did it ever occur to anyone that the increase in job approval for the President is a skewed number in order to keep the President on this path of having an economy shutdown? Think about it.

    3. Residents in states where Governors are doing things like trying to shutdown gun stores, ordering people to stay at home by using the police or fines as a cudgel, denying treatment to COVID-19 patients, shutting down entire schools must start a RECALL PETITION in those states. Recall the Governor. No Governor has the right to act as a dictator. These actions are unnecessary and are related to power grabs – not the health of the people.

    4. Trump Administration should expand the Coronavirus Task Force to include non-government physicians to counteract the political animal nature of Fauci and Birx and can also provide the proper narratives at the pressers. By this I mean proper narrative to calm fears, not stoke fears. Listing equipment being provided is good, but you should also be talking about numbers specifically. Of deaths, how many are directly attributed to COVID-19? How does this compare to H1N1 and SARs. These physicians are doing no benchmark analysis by historical comparison. Why are we using a model that predicts 2 million potential deaths when social distancing drops that to 20,000? Why was that even mentioned? To cause fear, that’s why. Political animals. Bringing in outside physicians without agenda and political bias will give our President another perspective for consulting with rather than the Mattis and McMaster of medicine.

    5. Demand the ability to send CDC and U.S. officials as well as other countries’ healthcare officials – in a coalition – to investigate how the vector was triggered in Wuhan province, China so that measures can be put in place on a global scale to promote success of containment in the future. Failure to comply should place severe penalty on China.

    6. Secure the southern border with a wall.

    7. Efforts to develop proper treatment and a vaccine, hopefully, were part of the CARES.

This grants time for the medical care system to adapt, move resources, re-stock and more effectively handle the increase in incoming cases.

          We’ve been practicing the social distancing behaviors voluntarily in WA for a few weeks longer than back east. By postponing all same-day and elective surgeries, we added 30% to our hospital bed capacity. Those extra beds are now full. However, our rate of admissions has also plateaued for a week. If this slowing trend continues, then we are past the current wave of contagion, with the staff and supplies we needed to weather it still in operation and not overwhelmed. All directly courtesy of flattening the curve.

              I don’t consider temporary adaptations to be equal to a lockdown. If you can go out and walk your dog, shop for groceries, gas or medicine, and call in a plumber or electrician as needed, you are not locked down. You are adapting to a temporarily increased threat to your own health.

              What happened here in WA first is now developing in every other state. It’s up to each one as to what to do when, but every state will experience the same sort of contagion wave To varying degrees. Best do what is needed to slow the rate before that happens.

(And, by the time you finished testing, some of those people will have since contracted the virus.)

                I simply do not believe that the present very-radical strategy, well-intentioned though I shall presume it was, is sustainable, appropriate, or particularly effective. I think that the cure is far worse than the malady it is supposed to be fighting.

              Until we have enough information to be able to make informed decisions about what is and isn’t “reasonably prudent”, no one is willing to allow triage in our hospitals to happen. And it WILL happen, according to the foremost experts in the field (and countless others who understand the mechanics and mathematics of pandemics). It might even happen now in a few extreme cases.

              Believe me, with the new testing coming on stream, we will know by Easter enough about how to control this virus to be able to make highly INFORMED decisions which we just CANNOT make now. Right now we know a whole lot more than we did even a week ago, hence the information provided at https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections

              If people cannot understand the projections, they should talk to someone who can explain it clearly.

              By Easter, we will have increased our knowledge exponentially through widespread testing. Hopefully, that will allow phased return to work as we get much more focused data. Maybe it even happens in places BEFORE Apr 30.

              This is not a joke, nor a fake crisis, nor a plot to take over the world. This is a PANDEMIC with a highly contagious virus that could potentially kill over 2M people if we do nothing, or if we relax our guard too soon.

The three key symptoms specific to COVID are HIGH fever, cough and pleuritic pain, non-productive cough. This can help separate from other viral and bacterial infections somewhat.

        However, ERs being empty or slow show there is no widespread crisis. A person in crisis who may have covid would have to go to the hospital. They could not stay away. This shows that the coronavirus is not the bubonic plague is my point.

    rt.com is in my opinion a still-standing bastion of actual journalism which has extended a welcoming hand to journalists who found themselves displaced from their mainstream media former employers. (The work is done in America by Americans.) Their direct news coverage sometimes shows an unwanted bias, but I think that their op-ed pieces, television shows and podcasts are very on-point. We simply do not get this sort of thing anymore from the American main stream – though we certainly should be able to expect it.

        Did the use the Flu Virus to cover this up? I think so.

      The ridiculous Fuchi has been all over the map on how many Americans would die. Is it really a good idea to base policy on someones mood swings?

      You can have an underlying health condition. It doesn’t your going to die anytime soon. If you get Covid and die and also are diabetic or hypertensive, it still means Covid killed you.

      And yet we won’t hear a peep about this fact from the MSM. Seems like rather than testing for COVID, we should test of underlying conditions, quarantine the vulnerable and let the rest of us get on with the getting on…

    • So NYC, the hottest hotspot of COVID-19, has only 14 deaths that are directly from COVID-19 for people who did not have any underlying health conditions, and possibly 918 of the 932 with other underlying health conditions.

      Now let’s do some math: The population of New York City is around 10 million, so figure that they have about 8000 deaths per month from all causes.

      Lets say that 10% of those that were going to die this month also caught COVID-19 and died with the virus in their system. That would be 800 deaths that were attributed to COVID-19, but for people who would have died with or without the COVID-19 in their system.

      Man, it looks like we are getting played. The country is in full lock down, the economy has been destroyed, our civil liberties are suspended, and just so that the left can try to take out President Donald Trump.

      Until the numbers or fatalities for otherwise healthy people starts to go up, this looks to be like just another other flu season.

    I just sent a slew of free faxes thru the NumbersUSA system (www.numbersusa.com) to the President and my House representative on stopping H1b visas, the visa lottery, and chain migration as well as urging support for E-verify. I’m on their more advanced system but if you are new to NumbersUSA, sign up today for the free faxes (they write the letter for you but need your approval first before sending). Not sure if as many are available to send for newbies but at least get one or two fired off today, it only takes a few moments. If we are stuck inside might as well make good use of our time by directly contacting their offices!

        Because the population is under a type of quarantine…

        Dr Acton made that “100,000 announcement” on March 12, 2020, She has downgraded that number since.

        Since that date, President Trump Declared a National Emergency on March 13th. Also, Trump stated ‘we will be extending our guidelines to April 30th to slow the spread’.
