I would rather live in Canada any day then have our country be run by Mr. Orange Man

I do like the US too and hope for the best for them. Like skolozsky mentioned, many of the governors are stepping up and leading. Thank goodness for them.

Boy, We closed the CAN/USA border just in time.

Trump is a lunatic!

Americans will be coming up here in droves like the draft dodgers in the 60's

The governors have really stepped up for their people in the US. Cuomo, Inslee, Pritzker are showing their mettle and leadership more than ever. Good luck to you. 

Agreed. It's just too bad they have Bone Spurs working against them....

It is. Truly tragic that the ego of a narcissist still gains any traction during a global crisis.

I used to work with one of those DD's about 10 years ago, when I was in construction....

 

Pure hippy and AFAIK, still drives around with Wyoming plates, decades after coming to Canada.....:rolleyes:

I read an article today talking about how Trump and the hardcore nut-huggers in his administration are "starting to lose patience" with Anthony Fauci...

Of course. When the almighty dollar is your only guiding principle, lives are nothing more than collateral.

....you know, for telling the truth, when it doesn't align with what president Pinocchio is saying publicly. It must be just killing him to know that firing AF would be political suicide right now....

I hope it does.

At some point they have to go back to work. How many cans of Pork n’ Beans do they have in the strategic reserve? The military must have studies somewhere telling government how long they can hunker down. Canada is impacted as well as much of our consumption is made in the USA. Push comes to shove and t he Americans will take care of themselves first.

History will remember when the world stopped
And the flights stayed on the ground
And the cars parked in the street
And the trains didn't run

History will remember when the schools closed
And the children stayed indoors
And the medical staff walked towards the fire
And they didn't run

History will remember when the people sang
On their balconies, in isolation
But so very much together
In courage and song.

History will remember when the people fought
For their old and their weak
Protected the vulnerable
By doing nothing at all.

History will remember when the virus left
And the houses opened
And the people came out
And hugged and kissed
And started again

Kinder than before.

-Donna Ashworth

 

The "when the people fought" part got me through right to the core.  Cried.  Every time I read it - cry.

 

I am still emotional over having to fight for safety at work.  To demand it and have to leave to get it.  Not for me, for my family.

 

My boss is an ass...even though I'll remain an employee, that will never change in my mind from that point onward.  True colours stuff.  I will do the job, as usual, with the same integrity and drive as before because that's who I am.  But who he is became perfectly clear to me in that moment during crisis.  When the dust settles, it's time for me to ramble on.   For now, I shake my head at how much intolerance and impatience he's exercised in it all.  It's like we're in his way by trying to do what's right.  Sorry to inconvenience you but....your open mouth coughing through the office is a problem.  Not an "attitude being displayed" by us when we ask you not to.

Mommy, What happened to Grandma?

Well it's like this honey,

The Dow Jones was plummeting and the President had to take care of the economy.

Random off-topic story alert!

 

Did a road trip down to Nelson in 2003 and while using a payphone (yikes!) I was watching a gentleman crest the hill. He had a big beard, long ponytail, wearing a nice 3 piece suit, carrying a briefcase, and finally...it was all topped off with flip flops and extremely dirty feet.

 

I can still remember thinking to my 17 year old self "Where the hell am I?!"

"Our people"?  He thinks he's "our people" or can speak on their behalf?  

 

Watched over?   Like in a numbers count?

When/if this blows over, do you think general practices will resume as they were. or to change temporarily or forever?

Afterall, The Asian flu, Sars, H7N9  never changed travel practices

I myself hope that tougher screening to countries like China will be kept, enforced and adhered too

Maybe airlines will need to have individual self contained breathing apparatus from now on?

I imagine travel will be more costly with less competition

I can't see any Government ever wanting to go through this again, and wonder how they will do things differently to lessen the odds of it happening

Even Russia isn't assuming this is just going to go away in a puff of smoke.  Meanwhile, it's business as usual for the medical expert for the Yanks...Jared Kushner.

I guess when there isn't gonna be enough ICU beds and ventilators for the amount of people who are going to get sick, might as well just send them back to work, right Don.
