The number of Americans venturing out over the Memorial Day weekend has spiked to levels not seen since the coronavirus pandemic brought the United States to a grinding halt more than two months ago.Cellphone data from Apple's COVID-19 mobility trends report shows that the number of people out driving across the US increased by more than 25 percent on Saturday alone. The number of people out walking also increased on Saturday to levels not seen since mid-March when stay-at-home orders were put in place across most of the country. In comparison, the number of people driving and walking around dropped nearly 70 percent

It was inspiring to see things much more normal. A lot of people saw it, and came back and started buying stocks. America is back. The lockdown crowd are in an ever tightening squeeze that will inevitably leave them holding a ruinous hand. The mask crowd will soon discard their nasty, sputum filled masks, or get sick on their on filth. Please discard them in a trash can. The nasty things are everywhere. Social distancing will fade by the end of June. Schools will start in the fall. Don't worry about it. The NFL is going to play. The NFL has weighed their bank accounts between playing and not playing, and decided they will play. The shutdown crowd will not be able to survive the tightening thumbscrews. And that is so great. Freedom will win, smiles return. The Democrats will be left with their frowns, and their misery. Even worse for them, Trump is going to win in November, so Democrats, get your promises to leave the country ready.

Am I the only one concerned that Apple is collecting travel data on American citizens? Better turn off those cell phones if you want to attend church or get you hair cut in the states run by Democrat governors like California. In my opinion, if you voted Democrat last election then you have absolutely no right to complain about losing your business or losing your freedom to travel.

Takes me usually six weeks or so before I need to fill my gas tank. I haven't filled since March and I'm at about 1/2 tank; I'd better gas up before the price is above $2 again.

My wife and son took a trip to a small artsy/music venue town nearby (he was looking for a summer job). She said the crowds were as heavy as she's seen any holiday weekend, pre-Covid19. Very few masks in sight and the 6 foot rule was observed more in the disregard than actual concern. We've had enough of this stuff.

I hope that people are traveling again. And, IMO, "spikes" in Wuhan flu cases, outside of nursing homes is not going to be a very important thing since the great majority, say 80-90% will not require much medical care, if any. In my county, 75% of the deaths are of people 80 and over, and the majority of them are in nursing homes.

#4 you hit the nail on the head. Except for one thing, turning the phone off doesn't help. You would need to remove the battery and sim card, leave them at home or just leave the phone at home. Once the phone is turned back on the travel data is updated. I totally agree that it is frightening to realize that Apple and Google are able to track us like this, we are one step away from an entity using that data against us. This is an item that needs to be addressed in President Trump's second term.

What is the stock market telling us about the November election?Despite the fact that America currently has over 38 million unemployed workers, the market is down 8.5% this year, having gone up 32% since the late March low. Why is the stock market going up while our economy teeters on the edge of a Great Depression? There are several factors currently at work in the market with the most obvious being the extraordinary intervention by our leaders in Washington. Congress has authorized mind-boggling amounts of stimulus funds while the Fed has signaled that it is ready to purchase nearly anything and mostly everything.

For a moment in April, the Internet tried to cancel Florida. Photos showing crowds flocking to Jacksonville Beach amid the Covid-19 pandemic brought the hashtag #FloridaMorons to the top of Twitter. The media eagerly spun scenes of ignorant spring breakers endangering themselves and others. Nearly two months after America’s first case of coronavirus, here was Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, joining neighboring state Georgia’s “experiment in human sacrifice” by letting locals lift restrictions on their own. Nearly a month later, Jacksonville’s Duval County reports new Covid-19 hospitalizations in the single digits. Rates of hospitalizations, cases, and deaths remain steady across Florida.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Twitter was wrong to fact-check President Trump’s tweets that made the dubious claim that mail-in ballots increase voter fraud. Zuckerberg reasoned that the social media platforms shouldn’t be the “arbiters of truth” “We have a different policy, I think, than Twitter on this,” Zuckerberg said in an excerpt from a Fox News interview scheduled to air on The Daily Briefing Thursday. “I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,” Zuckerberg went on. “In general, private companies probably shouldn’t be, especially these platform companies, shouldn’t be in the position of doing that.”

Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said there's no evidence that shows the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating COVID-19. "Clearly the scientific data is really quite evident now about the lack of efficacy for it," Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease doctor, said during a CNN interview. Fauci said evidence also shows the likelihood that the drug can cause severe irregular heart rhythms. "There was suspicion of that for a while, but as data comes in, it becomes more clear," Fauci said. The pronouncements mark Fauci's strongest warnings yet against the drug and puts him at odds with President Trump, who has embraced the drug as a "game changer" and a "miracle."

The staggering American death toll from the coronavirus, now approaching 100,000, has touched every part of the country, but the losses have been especially acute along its coasts, in its major cities, across the industrial Midwest, and in New York City. The devastation, in other words, has been disproportionately felt in blue America, which helps explain why people on opposing sides of a partisan divide that has intensified in the past two decades are thinking about the virus differently. It is not just that Democrats and Republicans disagree on how to reopen businesses, schools and the country as a whole. Beyond perception, beyond ideology,
