    Like I said before. Beshear always talks about how much he distrusts Trump and pretty much never takes his word. So why did he take Trump word on this when he could see for himself how bad things were getting? A real leader would nit just sit back in a case like this. He could have been meeting with medical officials, School officials. He should have been putting a plan in place despite what Trump was saying. That is what a leader does, he acts he does not wait for someone else to tell him when he can act.
    He wouldnt have gotten into trouble for talking to hospitals and schools about a plan. Yea Trump might have bashed him but he hates Trump anyway so who the hell cares? Beshear could have looked really good to the voters by taking the intuitive but he sat back and let the man he hates tell him how to act. I dont think this will hurt him with voters in the long run but he could have done much more. I can give the Mayor of Cincinnati a pass because Dewine is a Republican and he takes his cue from him. Although he should be meeting with school leaders on a plan to cancel schools should it come to that. As of the noon news he has not done that. But when the first cases appeared in ky Beshear should have said to hell with what Trump is going on about. There is some thing wrong lets get a plan in place. Dont tell superintendents of schools to come up with a plan to stop schools in two days time. it should have been in the stages by this point.

    Dewine is just being dumb. He has cancelled events of a hundred people or more. That is good. But he is not meeting with school leaders. he is not meeting with health officials about an emergency plan for a long term infection. At leaast not that anyone in his camp has said.

    Its why as I posted one guy was quoting Trump's horseshit "fake news" to me. Because a lot of people believed in this nonsense he spouted and it cost time.

    They're still counting in Washington State, and Biden now took the lead there with 78% reporting.

    I am not doing a good job getting my point across I think because I am not very good with words and not as knowledgeable as some of you all. You guys have pointed out some things to me in this talk that I did not know and I thank you for the information. It is changing how I am looking at some things. I have been wrong on a few of my statements and I am glad to see that I have been wrong so I dont spout fake news and misinformation. I also thank you for keeping it civil with me.

    No worries baron. Certainly local governments have made missteps. DeWine seems to be a proactive GOP Governor. But the bulk of the responsibility her lies with the Federal government, who have mismanaged this. And Trump last night showed how truly incompetent he is.

    I think we are having a good discussion.

    He is doing more then most. He is on the news everyday with a new statement. But there is a lot that I feel he is missing.

    No helping the little folk but Wallstreet? Totes gotta help!

    BREAKING: in a MAJOR intervention into financial markets, the Fed will inject $1.5 TRILLION dollars. It’s a move designed to prevent a sharper economic contraction than what may already be underway.

    With every move the GOP makes they are just packing more bags out of the Senate and White House.

    Helping Wall street effectively helps people keep jobs and services, so there is a legitimate correlation between helping the market and helping the little folk. It's tough to see at times, but it's there.

    That's one where you would probably see "Grumble..." either way.

    Do it... "They always look out for Wall Street..."

    Don't do it... "How could they just let things nose dive off a cliff like that?..."

    It was worse over here because they just spent 10 years telling us "Theres no magic money tree" and letting foodbanks explode everywhere then yesterday (besides Covid 19 money which was expected) they threw hundreds of millions into projects showung that "Austerity" was a hollow lie

    I think that while you could have a point, we just had the GOP Senate block sick pay and rush off without doing anything regarding the virus for two weeks. No one is going to see this is a good thing after those moves.

    Yeah, it looks bad no matter what. But nonetheless it probably does need to be done.

    Holy shit.

    The DJI closed 9.99% down - its worst percentage drop since 1987, and its worst point drop ever..

    We're talking Spring 2017 level now.
