    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Illinois governor tonight was subject of a report on that station nobody seems to like (FOX News) as the governor who has proven to be one of the most power hungry governors during COVID. Michigan and Cali up there too. The piece did not present him in a positive light. Just wondered how you all would rate his performance during COVID 1 through 10. I know Illinois is losing a lot of population because of taxes; If and I say IF he's perceived as a bad governor, maybe even more will bolt from the city and state. Don't shoot the messenger; just saying what tonight's report was on TV. I'd give the Kansas governor a 3 out of 10.

    2020 Catch-All

    Serious situation in Minneapolis. Been reading Wed night about looting and angry people in the streets and in front of houses of different people involved in the shooting and the prosecution of the impending case. Stay safe and may justice be served as soon as legally possible.

    There are so many self interests involved do you trust anybody? I don't. Why should I? There's so much corruption in everything. Look at Illinois politics through the years. Look at sports. I wish we could trust people. Bots, foreign countries planting stuff on our social media. Democrats/Republicans doing anything to make the other side look bad. Racists. Deaths caused by police on their own citizens. God help us learn the truth.

    Thanks for the sugestions. I will try to abide. If I am allowed a quick rebuttal. To No. 1: When is the last time I mentioned Rush or a Trump tweet. Geez. I can't believe how despised I am. But it is what it is. As Sally Field would say, "You hate me. You hate me."

    I should take a vote and see if a majority of people want me to resist commenting on politics and COVID-19 corona or continue commenting. I do not wish to ruin days of people by my posts, but I do rather enjoy posting my feelings as it helps me get my anger off my chest during lockdown.

    Are the new projections terrible for Texas this summer? Haven't read that yet albeit I've not read everything. Scary if COVID isn't abating during the summer months cause my greg "eyetest" and my past history tells me a whole lotta people get viruses during the winter. OMGosh a whole lot. No matter WHAT I do, I get three horrific cough/colds each winter. And plane travel?? Immediate germs/colds/coughs. God help us all if COVID is disastrous this summer cause we know what's coming.

    As far as bringing up the same stuff, that confuses me. Most of my posts are responding to current news reports and how mad I am as a result of whatever was said on them.

    Thank you, sir. I wish we could return to sports and "play ball." Or "drop the puck." Politics and corona are important but we need sports.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    They sure don't seem to be in any hurry. They're going to talk Friday?? Geez, the clock keeps ticking on the summer. Maybe it'd help if NHL gets the puck rolling with its 24 team tourney format. Get it going, NBA, NHL, MLB, please.

    PM me if you have specific questions that I haven't addressed on here. I think I address a lot of questions. Bottom line: I am a huge huge Sox fan who is passionate about "some" world and U.S. issues. That is all. If I'm wrong I'm wrong, but when I discuss things with people in person I don't get the huge disgust I get from some on here. I also try to be polite. Note I haven't mentioned hair or any personal annoyances since I got my hair cut. Issue SOLVED finally by the government opening up.

    Hmmm, there are some in between. The people who are a.) starving and homeless from this. b.) confused and scared how they are supposed to feed their 3 kids when they've been laid off work and the mortgage is beyond due and the refrigerator is empty and the credit cards maxed.

    Hanging in effigy? Not good. I think it's inciting violence and should be illegal. I know we have rights to free speech but that's sort of "inciting a riot." We need to start working together, but the Congressmen and women and Trump and Pelosi are setting the tone there. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT; we can't work together. We need to work together before it's too late. (Both sides are at fault; some politicians are way too bossy and power hungry and rude and have angered a lot of people who need to feed their families; also many people are at fault; unwilling to talk it out calmly instead screaming and grabbing their guns for protests).

    Let's face it. You don't like folks with differing opinions. Trust me, I read all points on here and I do respond to points made. That's usually when I get caught up and you see five posts in a row from me. They are all responding to points made. Look. I hate masks and I am for opening the economy. That puts me at odds with many many many on here. Reiterating the same points? Look at all the posts on Trump on here. As much as I railed on Kamala and Warren and Abrams, others rail on Trump over and over. it's all relative to what you believe folks and most folks disagree with my positions. Remember I'm a Bernie and Tulsi guy. How many of you are? I am a Jesse Ventura/Huckabee/Joe Rogan/Howard Stern guy. You folks likely aren't. We could go down the line and we'd see how my strong feelings are not shared by too many.

    So more fake news. Why bother to watch anything? Watch the video and Fauci is forcefully saying masks are not needed. Now he's saying they are needed? I give up.

    So why must I wear a mask if Fauci says this?? I hate masks.
