On Thursday, Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine announced the Buckeye State will reopen for business starting May 1, when the governor's stay-at-home order is set to expire. The governor said his administration is currently working on guidelines to allow employees to safely return to work at the beginning of next month. A task force charged with reopening the state is working on safeguards to protect Ohioans as they return to their job sites. The plan will reportedly include measures such as monitoring employee temperatures, requiring employees to wear face masks, disinfecting surfaces and other protective steps. "The world that we’re going to see is a different world,"

Good news for Ohioans. It's an excellent start for the nation as well.

Our governor, a Dem, said this morning - probably trying to get out ahead of Trump's plan, said KS will be locked down another few weeks. She isn't too smart, it looks like.

Honestly, Oklahoma has been pretty much open since last week. About the only thing still closed are small business owned shops. Lowe's never closed and was always full of business. 7-11's never closed. Walmarts and other chain supermarkets never closed. And streets are filled with traffic. Not as much as normal, but darn close. The virus was never scary to me. It's the tyranical low level politicians who scare me and the way the whole word was coerced into all this lock down when it really wasn't necessary. The flu has killed way more people and had already killed 18,000 just when the corona virus was getting started.

Kind of wonder if Trump isn't counting on a bunch of these Republican governors to get the ball rolling, thereby putting pressure on the RAT-led states.

OK, Texas. Time to officially open up. WalMart, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, Office Depot, hardware stores, Atwoods, Tractor Supply, liquor stores, convenience stores, grocery stores, auto parts stores, everything but the mom and pop stores and restaurants (which may soon go belly up if this continues) are open, and not hurting for business. Why let the other retailers and businesses shrivel up and die to make Nancy Pelosi happy?

Although I thought DeWine started this pandemic thing out OK - this last bit was cringe worthy. Truly, he seemed to be trembling in his boots when he announced this. Safe, safe, safe was the whine. Well, governor, the world is not a safe place - so I don't see how you can pretend to guarantee that reopening Ohio business will be safe. Most Ohio counties & businesses are A-OK to open. The president even advised that states should open county by county. DeWine is giving us 2 more weeks of garbage - while we watch small businesses& the unemployed go down the tubes.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “snitch line” has been forced to shut down because America is still America and the blowback was freakin’ awesome. Oftentimes we use George Orwell’s seminal novel 1984 as a metaphor for something we don’t like, a metaphor for government overreach and the like. In this case, a metaphor is not necessary. Thanks to Comrade de Blasio, we are now allowed to use the word “literally” while referencing 1984, as in de Blasio is literally embracing 1984’s villainous Big Brother by literally asking Americans to snitch on their fellow Americans —

Wednesday, former Secretary of State John Kerry called into question President Donald Trump’s leadership during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Instead of leading, Kerry suggested on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Trump is “playing out an election strategy” and “attacking governors” and members of the media in a way he said he has never seen by a president. “Look, the truth is, and everybody in America, I think, is beginning to come to understand that this president is not leading now, he’s playing out an election strategy,” Kerry stated. “He’s more focused on getting the economy moving before all the experts say you ought to be putting people back together in close quarters again

Until there’s a vaccine, the coronavirus isn’t going anywhere, so what could be safer than seeing a movie at the drive-in from the confines of your own automobile? Man alive, I miss the drive-in. I’ve missed the drive-in for going on 30 years. I bet Hollywood’s missing the drive-in right about now. We could all be going to the new James Bond movie tonight. Oh, that’s right, some of you don’t know what I’m talking about.

The global Chinese coronavirus pandemic and the “climate crisis” should be tackled together, Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg told an Earth Day event on Wednesday. “Today is Earth Day and that reminds us that climate and the environmental emergency is still ongoing and we need to tackle both the corona pandemic … at the same time as we tackle climate and environmental emergency, because we need to tackle two crises at once,” the 17-year-old said, according to Reuters. Joining a live-streamed event to mark Earth Day, launched 50 years ago to highlight environmental challenges, Thunberg said the outbreak of the coronavirus meant it was time to listen to the experts.

Since Wuhan virus became a “thing” in America, the media have abandoned any pretense that they are honest news brokers. At CNN, they’ve made themselves into news. During the press conferences, reporters don’t ask Trump questions aimed at eliciting information for the American people. Instead, they ask only questions they hope will harm him. And because Trump triumphs, they want to censor the press conferences. The media has therefore turned most of the current narrative into a battle between pro- and anti-Trump people on the question of whether Trump responded in a timely and appropriate fashion as news about the Wuhan virus unfolded.

Once upon a time, every American child knew about the first battle of the American Revolution, fought at Lexington and Concord, in Massachusetts. Even if they hadn’t had a history teacher drill the date into them, they knew the opening lines of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride.” Published in 1861, just months before the Civil War started, its first verse began “Listen, my children, and you shall hear / Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, / On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five.” The poem tells how Paul Revere rode through the Massachusetts towns of Somerville, Medford, and Arlington,

As the Muslim celebration of Ramadan arrives (April 23 to May 23), many of the faithful will expect to attend worship services at their local mosques. Will local and state governments treat Muslim worshipers at Ramadan the same as they treated Christian worshipers at Easter? Will officials arrest imams for holding services as they did to a Christian pastor in Tampa? How likely is it that Kentucky officials will sprinkle nails in mosque parking lots and take license plate numbers of worshipers?

If you’ve watched as much TV as this editor has (sorry!) then you are more than familiar with the ‘COVID branding’ that’s happening in commercials from companies across the board. Cars, insurance, pizza, food in general, grocery stores … you name it there’s a sappy COVID commercial out there. And hey, we get it, if they weren’t going this route it might seem tone-deaf but enough is enough. Especially when we’ve figured out their ‘recipe’ and are starting to mock the crap out of it.

Over the last week, thousands of frustrated Americans gathered at state capitols in Michigan, Ohio, California, Minnesota, and other states to protest stay-at-home orders from totalitarian progressive leaders such as Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, who argue that the lockdowns are crucial to containing the coronavirus. But with literally tens of millions of Americans losing their jobs and their businesses, and the economy collapsing with the worst possibly to come, Americans are legitimately complaining that the draconian cure is shaping up to be worse than the disease. Speaker of the House and nepotism-enthusiast Nancy Pelosi decried the protesters, of course: “What they're doing is really unfortunate,” she condescended.

While the authorities are cracking down on miscreants attending drive-in church services or surfing in the ocean, urban gangs are practicing social distancing by shooting their victims from passing cars. With 4 dead and 19 wounded over the weekend, Chicago’s gangs made it clear that they weren’t staying home. Either that or they thought that shooting rival drug dealers was an essential activity. And for them it probably is. While local media broadcast pictures of a deserted Windy City, the shootings paralleled those of previous years. Orders to stay at home, like most laws, don’t apply to criminals. In one single day in early April, Chicago thugs killed 6 people and shot 21.

The only Democratic voters significantly bothered by Joe Biden's race and gender are white liberals with graduate degrees, according to a Pew survey published this week. According to the poll, a majority of Democratic voters are not concerned that their party's presumptive nominee for president is an elderly white man. Nearly 60 percent of respondents said Biden's age and race do not bother them. Among black voters, 72 percent said they weren't bothered by Biden's race and gender, while 70 percent of Hispanic voters said the same. Concern over Biden's whiteness was considerably higher among white Democrats,

Francis praised the environmental movement, saying it was necessary for young people to “take to the streets to teach us what is obvious, that is, that there will be no future for us if we destroy the environment that sustains us”.(Snip)Recounting a Spanish proverb that God always forgives, man sometimes forgives but nature never forgives, Francis said: “If we have deteriorated the Earth, the response will be very ugly.”

In a long and poorly written introduction on the YouTube page, the people who made the video explain that the green revolution could have worked out if only the whole movement hadn't sold itself out to the rich and powerful, resulting in a sham and a scam.

"I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea," Trump tweeted. The encounter happened last week. Six U.S. Navy warships were conducting drills with US Army Apache attack helicopters in international waters off Iran last Wednesday when they were repeatedly harassed by 11 Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Navy vessels, the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet reported.
