    I believe there's some confusion with the shutdown.

    I got the impression that Mayors , Governers , and businesses did it all on their own..

    I also hear that Trump shut it down , but don't remember him actually making an order like that..I don't remember Trump telling anyone to shut down Conference tournaments or March Madness , NBA or the NHL to shut it down , or for the Players Championship to shut it down after the 1st Rd

    What are the facts here ?

    every decision was local, which is why every state is different

    trump clearly stated on many, many occasions that he is not a federalist and would leave the decisions to close or restrict each state up to their respective governors. that is why these blue coat governors are trying to tank their economies for political reasons. the admin was only providing guidelines to help present all of the metrics required to make an intelligent and rational decision. obviously, the lock downs are now out of the range of rational.

    A national shutdown was initially suppose to be for two weeks. Till Easter, remember? Shit was hitting the fan , local hot spot. Then Trump extening till April 30th;

    'Trump had suggested reopening the economy by Easter Sunday, but ultimately decided to extend the restrictions until April 30 over fears the coronavirus could spread further.'

    CEO's were pleading for guidance . To his credit, he then put it on the govenors, clever

    Few countries were prepared like S Korea, Taiwan (both of these countries never shut down , schools open) , or had leaders with brass balls like Sweden. Many just drank the Kool-Aid. What happens in N Italy to happen in say Manitoba, or S Dakota. The Blind leading the Blind..


    was watching the golf last Sunday and Tirico was phone interviweing Trump. Trump goes on to say: 'we did the right thing...it would have been 15-20 times worse if we didnt...'

    lol, where did he get the 15-20 times number? Out of his ass

    The stuff you list and the businesses around where I am either stayed open, shut down voluntarily, or they were an agreement with government requests to close. Anyone who is blaming Trump and the government is a Liberal who doesn't want to take responsibility for themselves.

    I do have a great sense of humor, thank you!!

    maybe the dems did this so we could get an extra $1,200 in our pocket while collecting unemployment?

    even though we have a republican President, and republican majority senate, and I have a republican governor, it’s 100% the dems fault.

    Not too hard to see what states are shut down and what party their govonors belong too.

    You see the divide in DC

    You see the divide in the media

    And you can see the divide on this forum

    They're all somehow divided along the same lines. Have to admit, not sure how that happens, I just know it does

    Great point about Fauci. A Communist Democrat, working for a Communist Democrat administration. We must vote them out in November.

    How is easy. Liberals are idiots. Why they're idiots is the question.
    And I don't thinks it's all genetics.

    The governors and mayors of these states.

    Why in Miami they were still shut down while the rest of Florida was open.
    Local officials kept the city shut and is a democrat/communist

    Did you just say governors are trying to tank their own economy?

    Trump did his job with the travel bans, beds and respirators. Democratic governors dropped the ball.

    That is nuts. The situation is impossible. Dem gov and Rep gov have different views and different priority. But this is an ignorant point of view.

    Republicans are not opening things up sooner to get people sick...they are trying to preserve what's left of our economy.

    Democrats are not trying to tank the economy, they are trying to save lives and prevent the spread of the pandemic.

    They dont agree on what's important but there is no malice towards the people/economy. Sure they try to spin things to praise or tarnish what role Trump had but the governor's people are the governor's people. Right or wrong, they are doing what they think is best for their state.

    TomGFoolery, meet TomGMockery. My guess is this guy either dropped out of high school or barely squeaked by. I do know for a fact he likes a LOT of wieners in his face. He bragged about it some years ago right here on the Rx in a Youtube video when he was stuffing 6 inchers in his mouth at Ellis Island Casino in Vegas.
