    “As the media trumpets that the US has the most confirmed Covid-19 cases, sadly they don’t put it into perspective. We have 169 cases per million people. NYC has about 375 per million. Those numbers will rise. Vents, hospital rooms, and PPE are at a premium. We must remain vigilant and do what we are doing. Don’t misunderstand. In Switzerland and Italy, only .1160% and .1145% of the population has been confirmed. That is one tenth of one percent. That’s the worst case. Even if unconfirmed cases are five times the amount, only one half of one percent have it. Can we all just breath now? Let’s manage the crisis and let’s not let the crisis manage us. Carry on”.

    What Clyburn had in mind is what Democrats advanced as their alternative to the $2.2 trillion emergency bill. It was designed to force President Trump either to swallow it whole or to take responsibility for vetoing a critical transfusion of federal funds to keep the economy alive. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and congressional Republicans ash-canned almost the leftist wish list. Trump should go further, turn the tables, and seize this crisis to do what he was elected to do — impose a new foreign policy. Isolate America, not from the world, but from the world’s wars..

    Kim Jong Un has been testing rockets again over the Sea of Japan. Transfixed by the coronavirus crisis, however, the world is paying him no attention. We should make a final offer to Kim Jong Un to pull our U.S. forces from South Korea and lift sanctions for verifiable reductions and restraints on his nuclear arsenal. If Pyongyang refuses to talk, we should tell him we are going home and are allowing South Korea and Japan to develop their own nuclear weapons. And let Kim deal with them..

    The sick joke of Donald Trump’s presidency isn’t funny any more.

    The coronavirus outbreak has revealed the full stupidity, incompetence and selfishness of Trump to deadly effect.
    For three long years the world has been treated to the sick joke of Donald Trump’s presidency.
    Some days were more sick than others. But now the joke is over.

    The humanitarian crisis about to unfold will consume what’s left of this president and the Republican party
    that surrendered its self-respect and sense of duty to flatter his ego and avoid his angry tweets.
    Trump did not just ignore the growing pandemic; he actively sought to block his own officials’ attempts to track and stop it.

    Before January 2021, the world faces two deadly diseases: a pandemic and a pathetically incompetent US president.

    “The federal government’s planned $2 trillion economic rescue package includes financial aid for individuals and industries that are struggling to survive the coronavirus pandemic.

    It also includes a bonanza for America’s richest real estate investors.

    Senate Republicans inserted an easy-to-overlook provision on Page 203 of the 880-page bill that would permit wealthy investors to use losses generated by real estate to minimize their taxes on profits from things like investments in the stock market. The estimated cost of the change over 10 years is $170 billion”

Second, when you hire a Davenport native who has numerous family members living in that area, it would be expected that if a position came open in that area, the coach would jump at it.

          Sorry but you have it backwards. The bill your talking about was the House bill that was presented as a pushback against the Senate bill that was mostly a corporation bailout bill. Once the Republicans agreed to put some oversight into the handing out of money to businesses and increase the amount given to hospitals and states, the Democrats dropped the bill in the House. It was a bargaining chip and it worked.

            Most of those sections were added to protect workers. For example, the collective bargaining section says that businesses receiving loans from the government cannot cancel an existing collective bargaining agreement for 2 years. That is called protecting the workers because some employers would use this pandemic as a way to eliminate unions or to ban any talk about forming a union.

        eLViS, have you been watching the press briefings that the President has been holding almost every day? If you have, did you understand him when he said he wants the economy back on track by Easter? Have you heard any of the experts saying that is a good idea and everything will be fine by then? I haven’t and I have been watching all major networks including Fox. The only ones saying Easter is a good date are Trump sycophants like Hannity. Have you talked with any health care officials in some of the most affected areas? They are warning it will only get worse and that they don’t want to play God like those in Italy are being forced to do. Perhaps you want to be the elderly sacrificial lamb who is willing to give up his life to save the economy so Trump and his cohorts can continue to live their comfortable lives. Most of the rest of us do not want to die before our time. I don’t want Trump to choose the time for me to die. Do you?

        Yes, the Republicans were trying, but, sadly couldn’t get anything through Harry Reid, so couldn’t be debated or voted on in the Senate.
