Labor union unveils $150M campaign to help defeat Trump

The SEIU. No surprise there. It's like the ACORN of unions. 2M members who get to see $75 each of their dues wasted this year.

Ha. The ACORN spawn is going after Bloomberg. I can't help thinking that Sanders most avid supporters are going to scare the crap out of the average citizen.

Another story, not linked here, has Bernie supporters with bullhorns camped out in front of official Democrat's homes berating them for not supporting Bernie.

U.S. clamps down on troop travel in the Middle East due to coronavirus

According to a Feb. 27 memo obtained by POLITICO, all leave and liberty travel with the Central Command theater is banned until further notice.

Sounds prudent.

"As predicted, the pollicization of coronavirus has picked up enormous steam in the last 36 hours since the president’s press conference. I saw stories on Thursday that said almost everything I said would happen – calling the task force into question, questioning the VP’s abilities, accusations of “controlling” information flow, etc., etc., etc. And as if the markets Thursday were not enough, the panic is taking on even dumber and more panicky manifestations. At this point what we are seeing has much more to do with media and politics than it does with coronavirus."

The media and democrats, yes, I repeat myself, have pummeled Trump over Russia, Ukraine, Impeachment and now Covid-19 and he just grows in popularity.

Thank you Governor Nuisance for alerting the rest of us that you are monitoring 8,400 people for no good reason while you ignore several multiples of that number of illegal criminal aliens.

Henry,

That was and is the great fear. That Africa might go seriously wrong.

I checked Johns Hopkins to see if Nigeria is on the board. Yes.

Some others with 1 new case I hadn't noticed before - Estonia, Romania, Denmark, San Marino, Georgia (the nation, not the state), and Lithuania.

So about 70 nations affected using raw data. That will become a headline. Even though now it's 39 nations with 1 case. Some of which are no longer active.

I'm looking at this thing and wishing that back when I was a trainer on Quotron's financial terminals and I was allowed to test and have input on the software that I could help re-design this thing.

They must have been listening to somebody. The central map now has two tabs. "Cumulative confirmed cases", which was the default, and a new tab labeled "existing cases".

If they were listening to me I would ask that if you clicked on something in the left-hand column that the lower right-hand trend line would show the selected choice of country rather than be stuck on China.

Having said that, they did add a "daily cases" tab to the trend line and it shows in China that recoveries, on a daily basis, surpass new cases.

Hubby went for regular check up today & asked our Doc his assessment of the Coronavirus.

Exact words “It’s nothing worse than the regular flu. Democrats are using it as a POLITICAL WEAPON AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP because impeachment failed.”

Buckeye

Perhaps someone needs to ask just how many Chinese die from the flu each year, and why is -19 different.

Buckeye

Maybe -19 is killing people who would die from flu complications otherwise.

Captain Hate

I've never understood the attacks on Pence, a fairly innocuous and mainstream conservative GOP member. Miss Marple suggested a badly handled defense of marriage act in Indiana, or something like that which triggered the homos and they've stayed triggered including all the lefty males. If he was as anti homo as they claim he is would he have gone to see Hamilton in NYC (don't get me started on going to the theater in NYC) where he was obnoxiously insulted?

That Pence meekly takes these attacks without strongly firing back makes me think he's maxed out as VP, which is a very lofty perch anyway. DJT has shown the necessity of staying on offense when committed to a pro USA agenda and never showing an iota of weakness or doubt.

James D.

CH, Pence is an unapologetic Christian who doesn't genuflect at the altar of whatever garbage the LGBTXYZ movement is pushing at the moment. That's enough to trigger the lot of them.

Buckeye

Chinese gal that worked for MT and I always took OTC vitamins and the like home for family and friends because it was common knowledge that local produced versions were crap.

Wonder if they have same attitude about flu vaccines?

How many get vaccines?

Captain Hate

James, the thing that gets me is that if you go hair on fire about everyone it makes you look really stupid and bratty. Obviously with the unfree press willing to tolerate that it isn't perceived as a problem until people start tuning it out...

Melinda

CH-

That starts to sound an awful lot like "WOLF!". Personally, they're at about fourth time for me.

Buckeye

If the average number of flu deaths in China is same percentage as here (likely much worse), approx 140,000 people die from flu each year.

-19 may be causing a slight uptick, or it may be killing the same people who would have been killed by flu anyway.

Pence is definitely maxed out as VP, no question in my mind at all. Wouldn't pick up enough of the muddled middle.

I am EXTREMELY grateful for what he has done--I frankly think he effectively enabled Evangelicals to vote DJT after the pussy tape release (along with M and M Mark Meadows and some others, Franklin Graham), but MP (and Karen too) have endured things very few people could (a la POTUS).

They are a tremendous example of living their faith.

We are blessed by their commitment.

jim nj:

I've probably just missed you, but you might be interested in the WHO's Situation Reports. They don't have the recovery stats, but they do come out on a daily basis, which allows you to track individual locations over time. I went through them and entered the major numbers on a spread sheet, which is how I checked the news that China's cases had started declining considerably earlier than it might look like on the Johns Hopkins maps. The numbers WHO is using are practically the same as the JH numbers.

I was initially recording China vs the rest of the world. But I think I might start breaking out some of the individual countries with increasing cases if I have the time. WHO didn't have the Nigeria case as of yesterday's report, but I'll check to see if it shows up in when today's report comes out..

anonamom

Definitely, don't rule out Joe!
His dementia won't be a hinderance to the Ds.
(Officially, without more data, I have to call it "cognitive impairment."

Too funny.

Buckeye

The stats for flu deaths are very revealing.

On average, about 35,000 people in the US die as the result of catching the flu.

Every 3 or 4 years, we have a “good” year and only 15,000 die.

But the next year, 45,000 to 60,000 die.

Some old people with compromised immune systems got a reprieve because of weather or some other external event (flu vaccine was more targeted that year), but the grim reaper gets them the next year.

This is because we are ALL going to die.

WHO isn't related to Nahncee and her BBerg terminal timing....

MissMarple2

Here is where I insert a personal experience on why things are so messed up with some black kids.

As I think I have told you all, we have some Section 8 apartments a few blocks from us, and a pair of black sisters, 10-12 years old, come over in the summer to do outdoor work for me - simple things like raking leaves, pulling weeds, etc. I thought I was doing a nice thing teaching them the value of work, etc.

About an hour ago one of them rang my doorbell and wanted me to give her a ride to her therapist, where she works on her "anger issues" , she said. Her mother (whom I have never met) told her to tell me she would pay me $25 on Sunday if I would do so.

Now, it's a school day, and the woman has never met me. The address for the therapist is WAY far away from here, in a part of town I am not familiar with and which is principally black, the woman doesn't know if my car is safe or if I am a competent driver, etc. etc.

No wonder the kid has anger issues. She is pretty much treated like a problem rather than a person. I, of course, told her I couldn't do it as it is too far and I am not comfortable driving her. Fortunately my daughter was home today and backed me up.

The other thing I had in the back of my mind was legal liability and things like fake lawsuits and such. I don't know who in the heck the mother hangs around with.

Can you imagine sending one of your kids or grandkids to a total stranger's house and having them beg for a ride from that total stranger?

I fear I am going to have to extricate myself from this relationship, as apparently they see no boundaries and I can't allow myself to be taken advantage of.
