Many New Yorkers say they are miffed at being treated as the poster children of the U.S. coronavirus outbreak, unwelcome in some states even if they are symptom-free. This week, Rhode Island, Florida and West Virginia appeared to roll up the welcome mats to residents of the Empire State. Rhode Island went as far as to post state troopers at its border to stop cars with New York license plates, requiring occupants to go into quarantine if they intend to stay. "How is this fair?" said Michelle Chu, 44, a graphics producer who lives Manhattan. "I mean, this thing is

New York. The new Wuhan. Maybe in the future they will be a bit more humble and stop acting like flyover country dwellers are ignorant rubes who need to be educated by their betters from New York City, Boston and Chicago.

Typical for NY'ers! Whining! They usually look down their noses at the bridge and tunnel crowd but when the shoe is on the other foot they can't begin to comprehend! Furthermore they probably have the attitude that the people they might be infecting should be grateful that they have condescended to seek refuge in their 'little' state! Remember your messiah the community punk used to call these states 'fly over country'! So, just keep on moving!!

They’re not really welcomed anywhere under the best of circumstances. And their attitudes right now are revealing why that is the case.

When a population at large begins to feel threatened from another population, it's first instinct is to pull the welcome mat from the perceived threat. It's like that with our borders too. And fleeing their own threats is what spurs population migration. So, kinda a big catch-22.

One of my grandsons lives in NYC and his boss told them to go home 3 weeks ago. He decided to come home to ME, while the other one couldn’t return to Boston but was quarantined. All is well but a mom and a dad now have a houseful. We are glad they are here and free of anything. Don’t those wanting to leave have families? I don’t blame the states for having a strict rule about non-residents trying to get away.

IME, New Yorkers tend to be particularly rude, loud, pushy, entitled people. They drive that way, they seem to act that way pretty much all the time. THAT makes them fairly unwelcome in the south and midwest....way before this Wuhan flu thing.

When all this started I wanted the Va Md Rt.13 access to the Shore locked down. And on the other side to limit access from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Loads of out of state cars have passed through here. Some are staying in motels. Most are passing through. A friend in Pa. near the Poconos said the little town close to her is jammed with NY NJ cars, fleeing their state and occupying that town where many have summer homes. These people are buying up everything they see in the grocery stores, the people who live there all the time are left with little.

Florida is now banning Louisiana residents and I say, so what. We're not all from New Orleans, just like everyone from New York is not from NYC. We're not all a danger, but why take chances. Err on the side of safety. It's a safety precaution, and it could also be a way to stop the stupidest bunch of college students in history from going to the beaches for spring break.

Not all of us on the Island are giddy over the invasion that we sustained a couple of weeks ago when our "summer complaints" started 3 months early; we found our supermarkets stripped bare by the Manhattanites or their illegal alien (how un PC like of me....their undocumented refugee ) housekeepers and landscapers stocking their bosses' larders. Now we are a hotspot in our own right, and they act like we should be grateful for their presence. Having experienced the invasion for the past 25 years, all I can say is, "Summer people, summer not". They are nothing but a plague of locusts; pity we can't spray something on 'em.

What is it about "stay at home" people in NYC don't get? As has been stated, maybe living in an over densely populated city with few means of shopping for essentials and transportation other than those that do involve crowds is not such a great idea for human beings. I know, I know... "but it's a great city and the vibe is so cool and we have everything here"... until it isn't cool and you have a virus rampaging through the city like wildfire. But I know they won't learn a damn thing from this, they never do.

We never get to find out HALF what goes on in the cable news’ favorite city - New York. Many NY elites left for the Hamptons after being told they should stay in place. They spread potential contagion on purpose where locals said they bullied local bar owners and watering holes to open up. What social distancing? News networks never really do in depth reporting of NYC bad behavior. They never covered the half of it post 9/11 either. No sympathy here.

The coronavirus has already dealt a vicious blow to key sectors of the U.S. economy. If the pandemic drags on into the fall, though, it’s likely to devastate yet another area that has so far escaped with minimal damage: higher education. The problems confronting the nation’s colleges and universities long predate today’s crisis. But if current trends continue, the pandemic is likely to act as a catalyst for a historic reckoning that may transform the delivery of higher education in this country. It’s common knowledge that the cost of attending both public and private institutions has grown far faster than

Renewed interest in pushing a big-spending infrastructure plan has emerged in recent days, but could be overwhelmed by climate politics. The $760 billion package House Democrats unveiled in late January would heavily invest in rail and transit, as well as broadband, vehicle electrification infrastructure and climate resiliency. “Always focusing on emergency and mitigation we go to the next phase, which is of recovery,” said House Speaker Nancy

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.
