  1. It really is a shame that public safety is now a matter of partisanship. Even ten years ago every state would have complied with shutting everything down. This is all the result of not having proper leadership in the Oval Office. Some of these Republican Governors are blindly following an idiot over a cliff and jeopardizing the safety of their residents.

    It will likely be ok. People can only do so much hoarding before the run out of space, especially when it comes to perishables. I find articles like this one comforting:

    Short-terms shocks to the supply chain should correct themselves in the next week or so, said Jack Buffington, an assistant  professor of supply chain management at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business.

    I hope that is true. It was frightening to see entire shelves empty.


  3. Went to the store earlier today and everything was wiped out. Milk, cheese, eggs, butter, etc. This situation is completely out of control and I'm worried about what is going to happen over the next month. My family should be ok for the next couple of weeks, but if the stores haven't replenished by then it's really going to be a problem.


  4. Not one Republican in the Senate challenged Trump on calling the virus a hoax and now we find out they were selling stock which indicates they knew how seriously this was. Then you have Republican Governors not shutting down things because they don't want to upset business donors. The Governor of West Virginia was telling people to go to Bob Evans which is a restaurant that has a mostly older clientele, so he was basically telling the most vulnerable to put themselves are risk.


  5. I'm of the mind that soaps should have reduced their schedules a long time ago to fit with reduced audiences. One soap doing three episodes a week and another doing two would be much more sensible considering that there is so much filler with five episodes week. Not to mention it would cut the budget.

    Trump tried to poach German scientists working on a cure for coronavirus and offered cash so the vaccine would be exclusive to the USA
     

    What he was really trying to do is find a way for his companies to profit from any medication to fight the virus and secure the patent for it.


  7. A lockdown is necessary at this point to at least try and stop the trajectory of new cases. Only grocery stores and pharmacies are allowed to be open under the stipulations of the countries that have locked down, so that is probably a good blueprint to follow. Of course you have working people who can't afford to miss that much work and this terrible administration isn't going to reimburse them which is a huge problem for a lockdown.

    DAYS really lucked out with the coronavirus pandemic situation. I'm assuming all the shows are gonna have to shut down production, eventually. Meanwhile, they have almost a year's worth of episodes in the can already. And more people will be staying home in the afternoon and potentially watching their messy show. 

    That's a really good point. Filming so far ahead saved them quite bit of time they would have lost in this emergency.


  9. I could see that being true. There were entertainers in that era that had children they knew nothing about. She certainly brought a lot of energy to the screen and Cab Calloway was energetic so maybe that's where she got it from.


  10. Republicans don't have control of enough state elections for Trump to have any impact on elections being canceled. As long as there are enough states voting for a candidate to reach 270 then any cancellations that he could convince extremely red states to order would be rendered moot.

     

    Elizabeth Warren was never going to endorse Sanders. She didn't endorse Sanders in 2016 and received some ire. They have some of the same ideas but is more pragmatic than him and that is why she didn't endorse him then and won't endorse him now. When they got into it that argument after that one debate it was clear that they clearly do not get along.


  11. Obviously that person is trolling and not being at all respectful about Roscoe Born's death. Seeing someone on television and judging them from what character's they play is not a way of knowing if they are "off". Bipolar is a terrible disorder and it's sad to read that Mr. Born was afflicted by it and took his own life.


  12. He wasn't getting much work before Trump and he started cheerleading for Trump to find an income. People like him don't get hired because they can act, they get hired to get half naked in roles that have no substance. Now that he's older he can't get by on that anymore. When he ran for Congress one of my friends said she wanted to vote for him because she thought he looked good in Janet Jackson's video (face palm), so he really is just someone who has gotten by on looks.


  13. He clearly has admiration for Cuba and Nicaragua's communist regimes, so he's not going to worry about his supporters being toxic. Those were people who pushed revolution by any means necessary and while the governments they overthrew were terrible they ended up being not much better. If it takes bullying to takeover the party and win the nomination then Sanders is for it, but it isn't working because there aren't enough far left voters to put him over the top.

     

    With that said, he gave props to George Wallace for building a movement and has said things about most drug dealers being black, that class is a bigger issue than race, etc. Sanders has race issues.


  14. Some cases don't even get to trial for 6 months to a year, so it's totally absurd that the writers had Ben up for executions so quick. All Carlivati wanted was a overly dramatic execution scene where Ben was rescued. In fiction it is necessary to take some liberties with realism, but there is a limit and this story clearly crossed it.
