Do you have a spare thousand dollars sitting in soon to be insolvent Bank of America?

Why not put it in a Casper Mattress?

Wait, Mr Pin.
I have a small-ish account at BofA. Is the bank going under?

I only signed the Defense Production Act to combat the Chinese Virus should we need to invoke it in a worst case scenario in the future. Hopefully there will be no need, but we are all in this TOGETHER!

Jane

I feel badly for the people of Iran. I have a friend who escaped but her family is still there.

Other than that, the government should rot in hell. They took that country from the Paris of the Middle East to a hell hole. And it looks like Kim Jon Un is stuck in the same boat. China is going to pay too. 2nd term looks very interesting.

KOKOMO, Ind. (WTHR) —The Fiat Chrysler Transmission Plant in Kokomo started dismissing in shifts Wednesday to protect workers from COVID-19.

Eyewitness News learned the United Auto Workers union has also detailed plans on making sure FCA gets cleaned before resuming work.

Chris Steward has worked in several areas at the plant. He described the employees as close like family. Steward visited the headquarters for UAW Local 685 to learn more about the shutdown and what they can expect financially in the future.

should we need to invoke it in a worst case scenario in the future

Yet I've seen at least four headlines that Trump has invoked it.

Maybe Mr Pin was referring to the "bank of America" (iow, the US taxpayers as a piggybank) and not the official BofA Bank of America. Because theyll start grabbing every $1000 bill in there to pay off, well, everyone.

Pres Trump signs Executive Order authorizing use of Defense Production Act to ensure that "all health and medical resources needed to respond to the spread of COVID-19 are properly distributed to the Nation's healthcare system and others that need them most at this time."

Jack is Back!

What a fuck of brain cells. I am watching the ocean saying it is not concerned. But really, if we self isolate and take precautions, what are we to worry about? But in April or May it is gone.

Jane

I wonder what Trump is planning to to get back at China. I assume it will be financial not military.

CNSNews.com) - Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) is demanding reparations from China for putting the United States through the adverse health effects and financial fallout from coronavirus.

"I've heard from colleagues on both sides of the aisle who are ready to engage in the same fight that I've been fighting now for several months, to hold China accountable for their bad behavior," Banks told Fox News's Tucker Carlson Monday night.

We need to start by forcing China to pay the burden and the cost incurred on the United States of America due to the coronavirus. I think there are many ways that we could do that.

The president could force China to relieve a great amount of American debt. He could institute tariffs on China and designate the funds from that into a coronavirus victim relief fund to pay the cost incurred on Americans and American taxpayers due to the negligence on China's behalf that's led to the crisis in America today.
," he said.

Second, some in China are attempting to attribute the virus to the U.S.

We are deeply saddened that faculty member Professor Stephen Schwartz passed away due to a COVID-19 infection.

He has left a lasting imprint on our department, our university, and the broader scientific community and will be greatly missed.

lyle

I met Frum at a NR get together in DC in ‘04. The missus and I spoke with him for quite a while. Had I known then what I know now I would kneed him in the groin. I had a pretty clear shot...😎

Extraneus

So one of the hundreds of deaths was a professor. Sorry to hear that. Have we heard of any influenza professor deaths?

KevlarKid

what is a COVID-19 infection exactly?

Extraneus

You'd have had to really bend your other leg, though, no?

lyle

How does FBN find these hawt MDs? Lou is talking with a particularly lovely doc right now.

Extraneus

Am I the only one here who was due for a haircut last week but didn't get it?

lyle

He wasn’t too much shorter than I, Ext. But, yes...

Captain Hate

'04 was a long time ago. Lots of backstabbers were still pretending to be on "our side", all the way to the top.

Did Frum seem intelligent or just a boring glad hander? You won't be judged negatively by the answer.

Jane

Just got a text from a friend in MA. Both work in hospitals, but er husband is a nurses assistant and he’s currently dealing with 50 cases.

Buckeye

Am I the only one here who was due for a haircut last week but didn't get it?

Nope, you are not the only one Ext. I’m twisting Mrs. Buckeye’s arm, but not making much progress.

She cuts the dog’s coat but isn’t volunteering to do anything for chopped liver.

"boring glad hander"

Without question, Captain.

Aaaaand Barbara gets a very high nonjudgmental mark!

The very worst place for the virus is Bergamo Italy. That is precisely where I was supposed to go in Italy, in June, before going to the Amalfi coast.

How rude!

He wasn’t an unpleasant chat but he did have bad breath, CH.

Jane

No Ex, but I’m going to cancel my Monday medical appt. maybe I’ll go to Walmart instead.

Captain Hate

How does FBN find these hawt MDs?

Ailes took a special interest in FBN near the end imo. Moving Tammy Bruce off of BOR's freak show and over to Charles Payne was win/win.

Jane

Lyle,

I knew CostA back in the day too. His conversion was fairly shocking.

Barbara

I think Frum was the guy who claimed credit for the following 16 words in GWB's State of the Union speech:

“the greatest danger facing America and the world is outlaw regimes that seek and possess nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.”

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Jane

Oops Lyle, wrong Traitor. But I also knew Frum.

lyle

I have no doc appointments until mid April in the form of my teeth cleaning appointment. Thankfully...

Captain Hate

Halitosis is the worst. And it's something you remember.

lyle

And now Frum isn’t anything more than a shill for the ChiCommies. What a coincidence.

Barbara

Aptly put, lyle.

Florida health official fears coronavirus cases in 19 long-term care facilities: report

Sounds scary until you realize they went looking for it proactively. They must have jumped at even hints. I wonder if they have the manpower to check all of them or if they are relying on the home's medical staff to promptly report suspected cases.?

I went to doctor today...had to pass a test before I was allowed into the doctors suite....have you been out of,the country, do you know anyone....blah blah blah. Doc wants me to,have some tests....can’t schedule,them until at least mid June...cuz you know...the virus. I leave for mountain house in early May to escape the Florida heat....so I guess test can wait until November.

Sheer craziness.

My club house is closed to all but take out...food and drink...but the golf course is still open, so,there is that.

jim nj

The WHO situation report is useless right now.

"Data presented in the COVID-19 Situation Reports has changed to reflect data reported as of 00:00CET (Central European Time). As this is the first Situation Report with the new reporting period, there is overlap of data between Situation Report 57 and this report, thus the number of new cases may not equal the difference between total cases in the two reports."

It looks almost exactly like the prior day's report.

So 00:00 is midnight? Maybe a 5 hour time difference? No new report yet.

I can’t find how the pathologist contracted the virus.

jimnj,

Looks like your 'expanded testing will increase cases' scenario might be here.

Mr. is unable to golf because no carts on this lovely day and doesn't think a trip to the nearby natatorium is a good idea so we can either have long talks or clean up some of the mess here. We opted for some cleaning. SOME. I worried about my exercise coaches as the studio's been closed so I arranged for one to come here today to work with me on my dinky pilates and next week the other one on my rather good gyrotonics.Made Mr. a new bread which was faster than the usual and quite good. Of course, it's what so I'm not eating it but for a sample bite.

Rocco

Hi all, the good news here is that it hasn't shown up yet at the hospital my wife and daughter work at. One maybe in the works. But my wife assures me they're prepared. She told me a woman who's worked in the pharmacy for years, walked into the room where my wife and a couple of other nurses were working, wearing a mask upside down. No one said anything not wanting to embarrass the poor girl who was trying to do the right thing. So my wife followed her out of the room and showed her how to wear it the right way.

This is kind of scary though. My daughter was swabbed for the virus this morning even though her primary said she didn't meet the criteria (no travel). But because her youngest has had flu like symptonms for four days, her pediatrician insisted she get tested.

Brady's a cheater!

Lyle,

After years of traveling with Jonah, I think he is shy, and being with all those people is disconcerting. Rich has pretty much come over to the good side, but their anti-Trump stance for the last election pretty much destroyed NR. Makes me sad as I had a lot of fun with those people?

Just got off the phone with Jr.

He is at the Children’s Hospital this week and next. Every two months he does a two week teaching rotation, where the residents and med students follow him around to do rounds, etc.

During this emergency the administration is not letting the med students participate. One additional risk they want eliminated.

Outside of that, he says everything is “normal”, no -19 cases.
