They Can’t Stop Us
from Re-Opening America

We’re going to come out of this nightmare whether the Democratic politicians like it or not. The pandemic is subsiding, so America is done with this lockdown nonsense, and the inevitable re-opening is coming. It will start out slow, then get faster, then get very, very fast, and then get finished. That’s how these things happen. But it won’t happen without #resistance. The lib establishment and its media gerbils clearly think it’s in their interest to have the Bat Gobbler flu crisis continue indefinitely. They think it hurts Trump, plus they really love wielding power over you. Just look into the dead doll eyes of Governor Karen (D-Minncounsinigan)

Where I live we have had about 58 cases in a county of 134,000. No deaths. It's time for us to reopen - long past time. We have to look at a state by state, county by county basis. It's not fair for us to be held down because New York and Detroit have huge numbers of cases. By the way, a friend of mine who works in the hospital says they are not seeing anything at all. Evidently, the few cases are not bad enough to warrant hospitalization.

It was supposed to be about flattening the curve, but now seems to be about eliminating the pandemic altogether. It looks like Illinois is going to huddle up for a year, meanwhile demanding money from the "rest of America" (who they call the government).

The death numbers are being grossly padded to insure federal money and even more importantly, to cover their tails in the face of astonishingly overestimated death rates put forth by the initial “models.” The virus is killing some people, almost ALL with significant preexisting health conditions, especially obesity (the rare exceptions will be trumpeted by the media of course). Most of those demanding others stay home are people who work for government or otherwise and are not missing any paychecks. We need to re-start the economy now. The disease is going to ultimately be spread everywhere. The “flattening of the curve” was to prevent a rapid influx of cases from overwhelming hospitals — mission accomplished. Im fact, it is very possible that most reading this have already been exposed and have antibodies to the virus. So we should get back to our lives in a free country — and the good news for folks like #1 is that if you want to self-quarantine with your mask and Netflix for another year or longer, you are free to do so. The rest of the nation is ready to go back to work. God Bless America.

#3...totally agree. In Illinois here, almost all the cases are in the Chicago area...virtually zero downstate, yet our moron goobiner is gonna keep the state shut down forever. Where's our smaller counties issuing decrees they will not abide by the shutdown order? These small town restaurants and bars need to reopen, or they'll all be out of business. Oh, and just read our goobiner wants $12 billion for their broken pension plan. Get me outta here!

Yeah Kurt! This man is so smart! Many of us have said "Enough"! I see my neighbors starting to stop and visit when they are out walking in the evening. We went on a golf cart ride a couple evenings ago and in one neighborhood, every third driveway had chairs set up, people visiting and adult beverages being served. This went on for blocks and blocks. They must have sent out a neighborhood e-mail. They were celebrating the end of the end of the Lock down before it was even announced! I think that's the way most folks feel. I was at the grocery store yesterday, people were calm, many not wearing a mask, food was plentiful and even a few paper products were left on the shelves! Wow! Things are changing here in FL!

I live in South Carolina but am currently holed up in Virginia with family. I was emailing with a friend in Maryland the other day and told her that I don’t know anyone who has had this virus. She told me that she didn’t either and had just had a similar conversation with her mailman who he said that he has been asking his customers and none of them know anyone who has had it. I imagine that, outside of NYC, Baltimore, SanFran, Seattle and Chicago, most of us could have the same conversation. My very small business is already shut down for May but I want to be back to work again in June. Enough already. And someone please drag Nazi Pelousy back from her ice cream stash and force her to pass the small business bill.

The big numbers in Chicago, New York and LA were caused by not closing the huge airports down immediately. The exodus from China should have been shut down before it began but of course that was "racist." When the people reopen their hometowns, the next step will be mandatory tests and showing your health papers everywhere you go, count on it. The tests are meaningless, just something about which they can make a new rule. The virus will appear in small pockets for the next six months but so what, so will the flu and the many other sicknesses running around. Being healthy in a broken country is not the kind of life we have in mind.

All remains quiet in western Colorado. There's only 60,000 residents in my county and 58 confirmed cases of the virus. Most of these were out of state folks coming here to ski and play and brought their virus with them. No one in my family has contracted the virus and no one in my circle has it either. Small businesses here are dying and out of cash. This is also oil & gas country and the exploration and production companies are laying off large numbers of their workforce. Everybody knows the drill now...wash your hands, no coughing, wear your mask at the store. Amazingly, most of us west slopers are pretty upbeat through all this. We are chomping on the bit though to get our fifth wheel trailer back on the road. You can only pretend to camp in the side yard so many times. There is no reason why our county couldn't re-open completely....today. Perhaps we should ignore our governor Polis and go for it. I'm sure he and his husband won't mind.

#7 I'm also in Madiganistan and things aren't quite as safe in rural areas as you may think. I have family in the sticks and by factoring in population they aren't much if any less effected. To your point, some are virtually untouched and a one size fits all approach is just stupid. What's right for Englewood isn't for Goofy Ridge. Yes there's a real Goofy Ridge Illinois not just Springfield. Although their homes are spaced out when you look at the places people go to get things they have less to chose from and "everybody" goes to the same Hi vee and Casey's. Life is spread out at home but funnels into even more concentration than in more densely populated areas. I also have family in the front lines of this, in the infection control field, one of the experts the CDC experts rely on . This isn't just another flu, it's bad and had/s the potential to overwhelm the system. But it is also no excuse to destroy the Republic and we have paid far greater costs to save it in the past.

We are still near the peak of the pandemic, and there is no guarantee that it will subside quickly. You can talk about re-opening all you like, but most of the work of re-opening is going to be convincing people that it's safe, and you can't do that right now.

It's time for a test. Some small business owner should just reopen – period. When a police officer or some bureaucrat shows up to inform him/her they are under arrest or being fined, the owner should respectfully request that they return with a warrant or order that specifies the exact statute they are being charged with violating. As we know, a law must be enacted by “constituted authority.” A governor (or mayor of Louisville) does not make laws. I'm a Navy JROTC instructor in Dayton. We teach our cadets about government, and “constituted authority” is a term they learn about. It is “the power to influence or command thought, opinion, or behavior, exercised by one lawfully elected or appointed.” The legislature enacts laws, not the governor or a mayor. That concept is learned as early as middle school. Someone please step up.

#18 That would not work due to the people, some on this comment thread, who would vilify the small business owner who opened. A friend of mine was riding their bike and some idiot yelled at them from a car, wear a mask! I have a friend who is a fearful person by nature and she is following every single rule they say and wiping all her packages and groceries down and putting her shoes in bags and all that. In her county, of 1.2 million , 20 people have supposedly died from this. The local news has given us zero info on those cases either. People are the problem now. People who will blame others in their area and vilify anyone not following the "rules".

Stop Harassing Samaritan’s Purse 11 replies

Last week, members of New York’s Reclaim Pride Coalition demonstrated outside the Samaritan’s Purse field hospitals in Central Park. Protesters wielded signs reading “Help Not Hate” and “Hate Won’t Heal,” as if anyone had ever thought or suggested otherwise. In contrast to their armchair detractors, the volunteers for Samaritan’s Purse put themselves in harm’s way, acting as backstops for a municipal hospital system at risk of being overrun with coronavirus patients. The group’s Evangelical Christian volunteers expose themselves to infection and disease at no charge to patients, treating the sick without regard to race, religion, sexual orientation, or any of the other identity groups under putative “siege” in the United States.

In criminal law, everyone is presumed to intend the “natural and probable consequences” of his or her actions. Thus, an accomplice who only agrees to rob a bank may be prosecuted for intentional murder if a guard is killed, because the robbery created a dangerous situation that could foreseeably result in death. By this standard, we should all be talking about possible Chinese interference in the 2020 presidential election. Only two months ago, many political commentators, even on the left, thought Donald Trump was a shoo-in to be reelected in November, since he was riding the wave of a booming economy and successful trade deals.

A former adviser to President Bill Clinton has doubts that the Democratic Party will officially nominate Joe Biden to run against President Trump. “It’s hard to see. It’s like a suicide march with them. But they’re pretty stubborn people,” Dick Morris told radio show host John Catsimatidis on Sunday. Biden has not yet secured the 1,991 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination on the first ballot but is the only candidate left in the race after Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ended his campaign earlier this month. Morris pitched New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as a possible replacement. Cuomo’s national profile has been elevated for his handling of the coronavirus crisis,

Communist-minded community organizer Saul Alinsky, in his prologue to “Rules for Radicals,” explained that the most effective activists were those who worked within the established “system,” not against it, so as to stir the revolutionary pots of change through fear. His words: “Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future,” Archives.org noted.

President Trump startled Washington last week by launching an attack on Voice of America, which for 80 years has been charged with presenting and explaining American values and policy abroad. Trump called it a “disgrace” that the current VOA leadership was allowing its service to repeat Chinese talking points on the COVID-19 virus. A White House statement also took issue with the news agency that called Chinese efforts in Wuhan to contain the virus a “model” for other nations. The statement also noted that VOA relied on unverified (and subsequently proven false) Chinese-government statistics in some reporting. Official Washington liberals swung into action to denounce Trump.

Many of Donald Trump’s retail-politicking strengths — the huge rallies, his command of crowds — have been neutralized, and while he still has control of the narrative from his bully pulpit in the West Wing, the national media remains dead set against him, and puts the worst possible spin on every word he speaks.

Now that Bernie Sanders has bowed out of the race, we can turn our attention to the general election — quaratine-style, of course. Joe Biden’s locked in his basement, and Donald Trump is tethered to the White House, which means it might be a while before we see much deflection from the current status quo. What exactly is that status quo, especially in the states that will make the difference? Pew Research’s latest survey puts Biden slightly ahead of Trump overall, 47/45, but Trump reverses that in Pew’s battleground states:

NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES - Dwindling supplies of carbon dioxide from ethanol plants is sparking concern about shortages of beer, soda and seltzer water - essentials for many quarantined Americans. Brewers and soft-drink makers use carbon dioxide, or CO2, for carbonation, which gives beer and soda fizz. Ethanol producers are a key provider of CO2 to the food industry, as they capture that gas as a byproduct of ethanol production and sell it in large quantities. But ethanol, which is blended into the nation’s gasoline supply, has seen production drop sharply due to the drop in gasoline demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gasoline demand
