    And I feel slightly guilty for feeling little sympathy for them given the malice and hatred they are spreading around.

     

    Meanwhile I finally had to restock the house and saw waaaaay too many people without masks on here in San Diego. But I warned about this on Monday since the weather this week is in the 80s and 90s...a typical summer day. As if we are not on Lockdown. When things get extended, I don't want to hear A THING and I will be doing online dragging for the heck of it.

     

    I was thankfully my local grocery store is enforcing the 'no entry without mask' rule. 

    Common sense should tell people not to do something so obviously dangerous, so it's hard to feel sympathy for anyone who ends up doing this.

     

    And an agency in Maryland received over 100 calls about consuming disinfectant https://abcnews.go.com/Health/coronavirus-updates-china-reports-covid-19-deaths-9th/story?id=70324535&fbclid=IwAR0M7vBKPEBSd_pqCjvshsVi0sPj4TDJYdwPunsjj-qs4rRyxB96KsoB_pg

    Some Maryland residents, however, still dialed the Maryland Emergency Management Agency to ask about disinfectant use."This is a reminder that under no circumstances should any disinfectant product be administered into the body through injection, ingestion or any other route," the agency tweeted.

    Doctors also say that no one should consume disinfectant.

    Mike Ricci, the communications director for Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, said the state "decided to take the step of posting this alert after receiving more than 100 calls to our hotline."

  2. This is exactly what Putin wanted. The United States having damaged credibility and failures on display gives Russia an opportunity to step up to the front of the world stage. Not that Russia is fit to be on that stage at all, but they can influence smaller countries and possibility regain some of the power they had as the Soviet Union.

    All that idiocy tells me is Diaper Don was looking forward to being able to smear Bernie with the scary "socialism" label and was praying Bernie would be the nominee. But - despite being impeached because of doing so - his attempted smearing of Joe Biden did not work and now Don knows he must go up against him.

     

    Don is TERRIFIED of Joe Biden, hence all the machinations.

     

    So despite his constant wackadoodle rants, a part of me is happy because I know he is scared and miserable and it is all he deserves.

     

    And it isn't just Diaper Don. Martha McSally in Arizona was trying to tie Mark Kelly - who is beating her in polls - to Bernie and socialism (hence why the presidential nominee is important to down-ballot races!) and now that's gone. Oops!

    Trump most certainly wanted to run against Sanders. With Sanders having made so many positive comments about Cuba and the Soviet Union in the past there was plenty for Trump to exploit about socialism. Trump needed this election to not be an indictment on him, but based on fear and buzzwords. With the pandemic and jobs evaporating this race is a bigger indictment on a President since Carter in 1980.

  4. When I ran for city council my campaign manager (also my mother) arranged with John Lewis' staff for him to call me and he did. I'm thousands of miles from Georgia, but he took time to call and give me advice. That is the sort of person that we need more of in government and the fact that people are attacking him shows what low character they have.

     

  5. This seems more like trying to gain attention than anything else. A soap was trending so what better for a her to get attention? Outside of soaps no one knows or cares who she is. It just seems like her motives are not good.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
