Oh, don’t worry. We had one of the Republicans in the state Senate, I think, sue the Governor over the Executive Orders he’s issued over this crisis. Someone has sued over his ban on out-of-state travel (work and grocery shopping excluded and no one is really enforcing). And of course, they’ve been raging about him leaving the single abortion clinic open. Because it always has to come back to abortion for these nutjobs.
But yeah, he’s done an amazing job which is why we have fewer infections than any of the surrounding states except WV, and a lot of those have been due to rampant stupidity like having churches have services or traveling to TN to eat in restaurants after he closed both of those. And everyone remember, that election was won by about 5,000 votes. So your vote absolutely will save lives in November. So vote BLUE!
Don’t worry about what she would have done as POTUS. She would have been impeached in 3 days, and we would have been left with Tim Kaine, her utterly useless VP pick that doomed her in the election. And we likely wouldn’t have picked up the House in 2018 so the stimulus would have been 100% corporate giveaways instead of 98%.
First off, stop acting like you’re superior to everyone else or do something to break your quarantine-induced raging or grow the hell up. Second, if you think I’m in the GOP, you’re completely delusional as I’m one of the most liberal people in the state and to the left of Bernie Sanders. Third, people that read a list of realities and immediately dismiss them out of hand to keep hammering people have a term given to them (they’re the ones in old stories living under bridges). Fourth, people are going to die everywhere from this even when Governors do everything right, and I will guarantee you that in Republican states where they did everything wrong for months, it’ll be worse. And a lot of them are Southern states where the top health problems the people have there are this virus’s favorite targets. It’s a fact whether you admit it or not.
Woah, woah, woah, woah. We Kentuckians will handle insulting fellow Kentuckians. The rest of you can just sit down. First, you can’t figure out a death/case ratio in the US. It’s impossible because we spent 2 months without any tests. Hell, one of my friends a few counties over from me had all the symptoms of this in January with her doctor saying “It’s running rampant around here.” like any other bug does in the winter before anyone said it was here in the US. Second, the actual death/case ratio in the South is going to be horrible. Lung disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes seem to be this virus’ favorite things, and the South leads in them by a margin that makes Secretariat’s Belmont win look like a photo finish. So, the entire South is screwed. Nashville is going to be a slight outlier solely because it attracts a huge number of young white people hoping to make it big in the music industry. Third, 2 of the biggest non-urban hotspots in KY came from churches holding services when they had no business doing so. That’ll skew the data.
Our governor has been doing a hell of a job despite a lot of the state is full of morons. That’s why our numbers look way, way, way better than any of the surrounding states. But Trump screwing up the testing rollout by relying on corporate America to make the tests instead of using the WHO tests like everyone else in the world is going to severely hamper any accurate measure of total cases which means any death/case ratio is impossible.
The only reason he did the stay-at-home order was so he could free that Tampa mega-church preacher. All state declarations supersede local ones, so by issuing it and exempting churches, that pastor is going to go free. That’s it. That’s the 1 reason he did it. Not to save lives. Not because it was the right thing to do. Not because it was the medically sound thing to do. To free a dumbass preacher from jail where the jerk belonged. What Republicans always do.
Actually, given how screwed Florida is because their governor watches only Faux News and Trump briefings, he could just wander around his dump down there and the surrounding community. There are plenty that are going to die there.
And yet so freaking many of my fellow white people keep believing that they’re millionaires-in-waiting so we have to keep giving them all the money because they’ll be joining them soon.
Yeah, no visitors are allowed in hospitals to prevent the spread of the virus, but Republicons are screaming “The parking lots are empty so all of this is a hoax!” How in the hell do these people sleep at night? They’re actively going to get people killed. I always felt bad selling something to someone that didn’t need that powerful a device. I couldn’t just look someone in the eye and lie to them if they would die because of it. Must be interesting to not have a soul or a heart.
And when he screws up and tells the truth, you know it’s a truth they don’t want out there. Evidently, he went on Faux News this morning and said that all the Vote by Mail stuff Democrats tried to get into the stimulus bill would have resulted in Republicans never winning again. Oops.
There is no such thing as a line-item veto in the Federal Govt. So, Trump can try that, but he’s breaking the law if he does. I know that doesn’t bother him or the Republicans, but that’s the truth.
