    Well, that was a non-event. Maybe I missed something, but it seemed everyone was just patting each other on the back.

    Predictable, but what else could he say? Total waste of time... maybe it’ll make some people feel better. 🙄

    So what did you expect him to say? He said what any President would say, we got this under control.

    Oh I guess he should have said, it's time to panic and go clean out the food at your local grocery store.

    I didn’t listen, but I expected him to say exactly what everyone is saying he said.

    Personally I would have preferred a bit more honesty. For example, saying that while the current outbreak in the US is minor at some point it will get much worse. The point is to be prepared. For example, I have about three weeks of food and beer, and tomorrow I will get another two weeks. The problem I have is my freezer is almost full.

    If one listened to the press conference, they told you where to go to find out about preparedness. Keep in mind....water, gas and electrical operations are a granted. If people are quarantined, how do you expect the workers there to provide their service?

    They may not be able too. You doomsday people need to prepare for this and worse.

    The fact is, around 50-70 or so people in America have supposedly contracted the virus. We probably have an estimated 350 million people (legally and illegally) residing in the US.

    If one does the math, I am quite sure that it is such a dismally small percentage of the population, it won't even register on the scale yet. There is no need for a doomsday scenario. There was really no need for the news conference, other than to show the American people that we've got this.

    Numbers don't lie.

    Mainstream media does. They want this to be Trump's "Katrina" and our "representatives" are already asking for money (no surprise there). Hell, San Fransisco even called a state of emergency. Give me a F'n break. Hadn't even happened and it may not ever but they are already asking for money. Stupidity at its finest.

    Is the 2.5B set aside as just in case money, or will it get appropriated to use as he sees fit if we don't need it? i.e. a certain wall along the Rio Grande?

    Doomsday scenarios, or panic, are not helpful. Complacency is probably not a great idea either. The number of cases in Italy has exploded far beyond what is happening in France, Germany, Spain or the U.K.

    Actually, Tom, that’s not exactly correct. That does not include the cases repatriated from the cruise ship in Japan. There are currently 60 known cases in the U.S.A., but 6 of those have already recovered. No deaths so far.

    Considering how many flights happen in the U.S. every day, and how many people share public places like restaurants, stores, schools etc. every day, the impact does seem very modest so far, but the CDC has warned that it will probably get worse.

    Only time will tell how much worse.

    Need to work on the reading comprehension. This is what I said. The 14 is from the article YOU posted.

    No need to get upset, dude, with the bold type. We are just having a discussion here. It’s not a war.

    Dang Bud your Paranoia knows no boundaries, I'm not sure what has happened since your retirement but it's apparent there is something there my friend. At your age you should be more afraid of the flu it has a better/higher probability of taking you out.

    I was one-half block from ^^ UNMC this afternoon. I'm tired and I just sneezed onto my computer monitor while being logged in to this forum. Everyone better check their temps and get your affairs in order tomorrow. :)

    Maybe we need to send Bud some tinfoil...

    He’d be happier if we sent him a second freezer, more beer and more groceries! 😉

    This Report is also interesting.

    If you watch the included video, the measures being taken to clean a railway station in South Korea are quite extraordinary. It’s hard to imagine anything like that happening in the U.S.A.

    Bud was very seriously ill recently, IIRC. Maybe that has warranted some additional concerns in his case.

    WARNING!!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!!

    This is an important public service announcement!


    It has been discovered that CoViD 19 is now being spread through currency. I have devised a comprehensive test. Send me your paper currency (coins are not carriers of this virus, unless they predate 1910 and are in mint condition) and I will personally test them all for free. I will immediately burn the exposed samples and return the clean ones. No charge.

    Will offer a 10% discount on return shipping for friends and family of the Polk Community. Spread the word...
