Ok, but Sorry, Jim, no revisioniist motivation allowed. Trump in January called to shut down travel from China as a first step. He was called racist for doing so. You have to keep up and note who's doing and saying what and when. If the media can't get things straight, you should keep a record, so you don't end up looking as foolish as they do, and will continue to look. Btw, he's been right about China all along, way before all this latest stuff.

Covid-19 has its work cutout if it's going to catch up with flu. The party of death Democrats and their media lackeys are hoping for the new virus to continue for months, through election, and start foaming at the mouth at any suggestion to the contrary that might happen.

Thanks, Dave. Long time no hear! What you been up to?

Maybe it's humanity's way of giving back to the animal world something that came from there?

John, you should do what is necessary to protect your health in the best way you determine. You and I are both in the more at risk category, perhaps for different reasons. As to what point is it? Won't go into it just now, suffice to say covid 19 is a genuinely bad disease, but How bad is not known because the data is skewed. The panic and fear is being deliberately contrived. This spirit of fear is from Satan, not God. We are assured of that from Scripture, no? Therefore our thinking should include this reality, and recognize there is more going on than the disease and it's handling.
John UK wrote: "...as confirmed global infections near one million." If that is the number of infections in the world with all the preventative practices in place, what would the figure be without that? Ten million, one hundred million?
A million is about as many as actually die of Malaria each year. But that is them, not us I suppose. Consider also the vast majority of covid 19 cases will recover, not die.

Some would like to see that become the norm here. Maybe the children can be trained to tattle on parents. Hey, we could call the USA the fatherland! Isn't it amazing, Jim, how much we will put up with and willingly give away in the name of an emergency?

Me too, US. And if you put blueberries, pecans, and real maple syrup on them, it is truly heavenly. Is it ok to say heavenly in this context?
Not being able to pay the rent is what happens when a governor says your job is not essential. It's essential to the renter, but hey. You have to wonder why self described "essential" government types don't get it. It is the "non-essential" workers who are paying their paychecks. But then, there is always that magic printing press money.

Two real reasons you don't like him:
1. He's a Republican.
2. He issued an order last month that suspends non-emergency, elective surgeries, in order to free up hospital beds for COVID-19 patients. Of course, that includes abortion, which you seem fond of supporting.
btw, many hospitals are postponing electives anyway, so it's not a Republican thing. Abortions are just not that necessary.

Science can tell us about disease, but politics is driving the irrational fear.

That was more than likely a secondary reason. Perhaps the primary was to get rid of the competition for the mind of the people. When has the purity of the faith been any government's chief worry?

Funny how the lefties are in the forefront when there are constrictions to be ordered. Ah, what would they do without abstract "public" health and safety issues to justify their little Napoleon mentality.

Which one? Influenza, this season. Look it up.
Fear is indeed a terrible thing. One wonders why it is being promoted by your media friends. It might help them in their never ending quest to get rid of Trump, but it doesn't help sick people get well. Not that they care.
