225 days to go. Apparently Trump and his crowd have put a end to this crisis at
march 31. I wonder if anyone has told the Corona virus about it?  Somehow I
think we are  just getting started with it. No matter what the GOP or Trump
want, this is one thing the rich can't  control.

The GOP and Trump want a 500 billion dollar slush fund they can hand out to
please their big business friends. A fund with no oversight at all. The Democrats
say no, because the last time this was done, the money went to give big bonuses
to executives and to buy back stock. This buy back is done to increase the value
of it. Which feeds those at the top. Not the workers of course.

So far Trump has not invoked the war power where the president can order factories
to manufacture products needed during a national emergency. Trump claims this is
nationalizing businesses, yes it is, but just for the emergency, and they are paid
very well. I have a hunch this is big business talking to Trump, asking him not
to do it, because it would be a lot of trouble and a pain. In fact for all we know
their lobbyist are offering Trump money not to do it. Trump doesn't seem to care
that a ad hock volunteer system doesn't work well enough for the emergency we
are in.

As is these volunteer factory's are making states bid against each other
for needed supplies, and equipment, so they can make a huge profit.

This all boils down to the fact that a free market system doesn't work during this
kind of emergency. The government has to  step on toes to get done the things
that need doing. Some rights must be suspended, people have to do things they
don't like. Otherwise a lot of people will die while  greedy people are appeased. 

There is a lot of work being done toward a cure or a treatment, but it is still weeks
perhaps months away. Big mouth Trump isn't helping matters by promising  cures
sooner than later.  Slowly though Trump is helping states with supplies and equipment
Even some national guard medical facilities as well. He should turn logistics over to
the military. People that are trained to coordinate materials and supplies 

But Trump apparently wants to look like he is doing the job himself. This is how
Trump  likes to do things. Be the man in control. The problem is he isn't smart
enough to be a boss. Oh he thinks so, but 4 bankruptcy's prove he is not. 

Moscow Mitch stood at his podium in the Senate and lied about what the Democrats
are doing to hold up the GOP relief  bill. Of course he didn't mention his 500 billion
dollar slush fund the GOP wants to please big business. It's time Trump and the GOP stop
their partisan bickering, and vote for the people and not for their super rich friends.
They can have a vote to help big business later, but no, they know they will have
to put controls on their big fund for big corporations if it's done alone. So Moscow
Mitch wants to play a blame game trying to get his way.

The number of people infected around the world is at 240,000  The number of
dead is at 9,800.

224 days and it  appears Trump, the GOP, and the far right is wanting
 to send people back to work even though they might be sick, or could
spread the virus.  Because their economy is going down, and putting
Trump's election in November at risk.

 Right now his plan is to wait till April 1, and  declare the virus under
control, and have everyone go back to work and to  school.
Somehow I really don't think this will fly. Some will listen to
Trump, but most people are going to be very slow about returning
to a normal way of life with people dying in hospitals from this virus.
So even if businesses open, they will not have enough customers to
stay that way. Also if schools open, there won't be enough students
to keep them open.

At what point will the cult of Trump understand Trump only cares
about himself. Are they going to follow him when he tells them
money matters more then lives? Sure the rich may feel they can
hide in their ivory towers and be safe, while 100's of thousands die
from a disease out of control, because they  didn't want to lose some of
their riches.

The main reason a relief bill has been stalled, is due to the GOP wanting
a 500 billion dollar slush fund, that they can hand out without oversight.
Of course Trump said he would over see it.  Sure, you just as well give a
fox control of a hen house. First thing Trump would do would be to hand
a wad of money to his son n law, and a bailout for his hotel businesses.
Because he could hide every bit of it. This has apparently be worked out,
so there will be oversight by a panel.

The Democrats say no. It's workers first, hospitals, clinics, and after that  then
big corporations can get their loans. All they have to do is put their workers first.
Something they really don't like to do.

It's not that hard, but the GOP works for their rich friends   first, and the people later
if they get around to it. Another thing is many GOP members in the legislature are stock
holders, so they want the stock market to go up. So they are going to push to  get the
economy going, even if it kills people. Yes alot of rich people do care, but many care more
for their pocketbook than anything else, and Trump is leading the pack.

It seems Trump has taken one of the countries best doctors off the press conference stage
 because  he didn't agree with him. This is what Trump does. You do as he says or your out.
It doesn't matter how wrong he is, Trump wants everyone to think he is always right.

The Democrats tried to  get mail in voting in the relief bill, but the GOP doesn't want anything
that makes voting easier. Because it would likely cost them elections. The democrats will keepl 
trying, but it probably won't get passed. Even if it did, Trump wouldn't sign it.

223 days  left. The senate may vote on a 2 trillion dollar bill today. But time will
tell. This could have been done already, but the GOP kept trying to make it so
Trump could give billions away without any oversight. They did their best to
help big business and their rich friends. So the Democrats had to work hard
for days, to make the bill work fore  real people and not just for the richest
Americans.

It's sad, to see Moscow Mitch stand at his podium  bragging about a senate vote he
didn't really want passed in the first place.  No he wanted a big  package for the rich
 instead, but due to the hard work  of the Democrats it works more for the people.
Mitch of course being a politician jumped on the band wagon, and I am sure Trump
will claim credit as well.

I said yesterday that Trump wanted to open up the economy April 1, but no
he is waiting for Easter. I have a hunch he picked that day for his religious
supporters benefit.  Still even this date is too soon. Yes some parts of the country
don't have a lot of sickness, but in two weeks this will likely change. If businesses
and schools open  back up  the virus will have a lot of people to infect once more.
So that will require another shut down.  A too soon return to get the economy
moving  again will just make things worse.

A large right wing religious college said they would open up after spring break. This
campus  has close to 100,000 people studying and working there. I can't imagine
the number of infections will be spread there and to the families  of the students
when they return home. I have a hunch this decision was money related, because
it makes no sense health wise. Because you can be sure many students picked up
the virus while on spring break.

A lot of young people apparently have decided this virus is just a old persons disease.
Well they best think again. Though fewer in number, people  in their 20's are getting
sick and ending up dead, and some younger than that. It seems the far right and
conservative news is trying to convince people the economy is more valuable  than
people's lives. Apparently in support of their king Trump. This will only lead to more
problems. It's time the far right forget about Trump and do what's right. Otherwise
we could end up in a depression for sure.

222 days till this falls election, and the GOP is doing all they can
to stall the passage of the relief bill. A bill that could have been
done a week ago otherwise. At the last minute the GOP voted to
cut unemployment payments by $600.00 for the  lowest wage
workers.

The GOP is so afraid they might give a dollar to someone who
isn't rich. Someone who wouldn't help them get re elected. It's
time the people wake up and realize the Republican party is all for
the businessman, and only for the businessman. Oh! they claim they
are for the working man, but not directly, only through the businessman
and no one else.

Big business stands up and brags about all the jobs they create, but
the workers have to fight to get a decent wage and working conditions.
Now with this health crisis, health care workers are having to beg the GOP 
for protective clothing, while the GOP make false claims that they are working
hard to provide them.

Now Trump and the GOP claim we must end this business of shutting down
the economy, and let the states deal with the  virus. Because the economy is
more important than old people or anyone else that might die. Somehow I think
if one of those old people was Trump, or Moscow Mitch it would be a totally
different story. 

Trump still won't trigger the law that would   require factories  to build medical 
equipment.   Instead he just says he would if it was needed. Using the excuse that
enough factories are volunteering.  The problem with this is factories are running
bidding wars to make all they can. Even selling needed equipment to foreign
countries if they win the bid. So we should ask Trump what happened to
America first? I have a hunch with Trump and the GOP  it's a dollar first
instead.

Personally I feel Trump and many of the GOP members of congress and the
senate should lose their next election. Because they aren't working to help
the people across the country. They are just looking out for their rich
supporters. Supporters who spend millions to get them re elected.

Trump wants to help the cruise industry. A industry that pays very little in taxes.
A industry who is almost totally own by foreigners. Is this more of Trump's America
first? Doesn't sound like it to me. He wants to give billions to big corporations as well.
I guess Trump and the GOP forgot about chapter 11 bankruptcy. It allows businesses
to restructure and get loans. Especially  if they have assets. Like big ships and lots
of airplanes. So there is little reason to give them a bailout, except to  please their
rich friends. Gotta have that re election money I guess.

Big corporations will get this money quickly, but small businesses will have to wait
to get the loans they need. So if Trump and the GOP think the economy is going to
bounce back, they may be waiting for a while. Because the economy rides small
businesses, not big corporations.

221 days left. The house is set to vote on the two trillion dollar relief
bill. Seems a GOP congressman is threatening to ask for a roll call
vote. This won't keep the bill from passing. It's just a man up to no
good. Even Trump called him out for making the party look bad.

It appears the corona virus is hitting New Orleans hard, and is likely
to be the next hot spot after New York. Apparently this is the result of
the Marti  grass celebration. Where over a million people attended in
February. Those in power claimed, no one told them they shouldn't
have it. This a very poor excuse as it was already known the corona
virus could spread in large crowds. It was likely decided it would
cost the local economy to much to not have it.  As usual the Business
community overrides  health concerns.   

Trump still won't use the law to force big companies  to manufacture 
Medical  supplies and equipment.  He and the GOP want to  open
up businesses and  relax restrictions allowing the public to
get out, and move about communities. This is due to  big
business concerns, because they don't care how  many
sick people die.  They just want the economy up and running
again.

I saw a poll the other day that showed favor for Trump, even to
show favor for his handling of this corona virus. It amazes me to
see how little people check for facts, and just want to believe the
most corrupt man who ever served as president. After all it was Trump
who called this virus a hoax in early February. I suppose these people
still think it's a hoax. Even with a half million people infected around
the world. This disease Trump wanted to call a bad cold will likely kill
tens of millions before it's done. 

There is talk of investigations after this crisis has past, but I can
guarantee little will be done if the GOP have anything to do wit
it. Because it's the GOP in control, and to  hear them and Trump
everything is going just fine. And when the economy is going again
they will be happy, and the deaths will be irrelevant.

In spite of claims by Trump and the VP supplies and equipment  are
in short supply. Also limited testing for the virus. These problems
put many more people at risk. Especially doctored and nurses.   Just
remember than if you think the GOP and Trump  cares about you. because
they don't.

World wide the number of people infected is nearly 550,000 , and deaths 
are nearly 25,000.

The numbers for the United States is over 85,000 infected, and over
1,250 deaths.

220 days left and the right wing is ready to sacrifice older  Americans for the
good of the economy. Not counting the moral aspects of this. Opening up the
economy will just kill more people, and really wreck the economy in the end.

Sending people back to work could cause  the Corona virus to continues spreading
across the nation this summer and into  the fall. If so, Trump and the far right will
have  to deal with a depression that could last for several years.

I doubt even the cult of Trump could survive that. The depression of the 1930's
came close to destroying the Republican party, and another one could finish the
job. I really doubt if Trump even cares. Because he will sit back in his gold plated
tower while people starve, grow sick and die. 

Trump's lack of morality stood out strong when he said he wouldn't help governors
who didn't give him praise.  This isn't new for Trump, he expects praise for everything
he does. and wants to punish those who call him out for his bad actions.

The relief bill that was passed does help a lot of people, and will likely make a lot of
rich people even richer. Trump told one foreign corporation to register here and they
would be eligible for bail out money. Is that Trump trying to make American Great
again? Though it may help some workers here, those corporations pay little or no
taxes here. I find it hard to believe these rich corporations are all that hard up.
Especially when they pay their executives millions.

The democrats will try to push another bill through  to help the poor and disadvantaged,
but I  am sure the GOP will stall, and cry for weeks, now that they don't need the
Democrats to help get money for their rich supporters. Moscow Mitch has already
made claims that the Democrats are just wanting to pass social programs during this
crisis.  Something the GOP hasn't any problem with it the program is to help the rich.
They continue to claim  trickle down economics is the best way to help workers.

It's been proven wrong time and time again, because human greed gets in the way. It's been
shown the richer people are the more greedy they are, no matter what the GOP wants to claim.

The number of people infected in the United States is over 102,000, and the death toll
 is over 1,600. With no signs of slowing.

219 days till Trumps day of reckoning. It seems he is starting to worry because
he is complaining about an advertisement telling people the truth about how
he has responded to the corona virus. Even threatening to sue TV stations
that air it, and if that doesn't work he threatens to have their license
removed. I doubt if he could legally do this, but Trump would likely
try anyway, hoping to scare off station owners from airing the
offending ad.

As is he moved his press conferences to prime time, which steals   valuable
advertisement time from stations across the country. He is doing this because
he can't have his rally's any more. Some stations are moving their coverage
to secondary channels,but it still hurts the stations revenue. Something
Trump cares nothing about. 

Trumps comments do little to give the conference any value to the public. since
Trump mostly lies and brags about himself, and how much good he is doing
for the country. He doesn't care about deaths or health care workers. He may
make a good talk, but there isn't anything from his heart. Because he only
worries about himself, and his re election. He apparently doesn't understand
being president is for all the people, not just those who brag about him.

The governor of New York gives news conferences any president could be proud
of. Perhaps this is why Trump doesn't like him. Instead of learning from this man,
he considers himself smarter by running the governor down.

Trump has a belief that to win you have to fight back. This is why he bad mouths
anyone who makes him look bad. This may work in cut throat business deals, but
not in government, and especially not as president. Some may think he will learn,
but as in the old saying  Old Dogs can't learn. Trump never will. He might be rich
but he is a mental midget, and only has wealth because he inherited  it. 

Unfortunately Trump benefits from people wanting to support the president during
national emergency's. He has done nothing to earn it. Just as he has done little or
nothing to build the economy, which was growing when he became president.

Some may claim there are enough hospital bed, and ventilators, but what about next
week? The biggest problem we  have with the virus , is Trump and his GOP friends
want to wait and see what is needed. Not to prepare for it. Because that might be
an unnecessary expense. This business way of responding to a health crisis is only
 going  to make it worse. 

The speaker of the house said it. Trumps actions are deadly. Because he just fiddles
around trying to make his self look good.

 in the united states.The last I heard122,000  were infected and over 2,200. have died.

world wide the infected number is almost 700,000 , and over 30,000 deaths.
 and 141,000 have recovered. Depending on the age group the death rate is
around 2%.

218 days yet to go. The hospital ship Comfort  arrived in New York. This ship will
handle a lot of non corona virus emergencies in the city. This is fine, but the  cities
hospitals need tens of thousands of ventilators , and other supplies. So what is
Trump doing? Worrying about the costs of these supplies, making accusations
that people are asking for a lot more than they need. Not just in New York,
but around the country. As if he is an expert about medical needs.

If there are suspicions of theft or hording, Trump should have the Justice department
look into it. Making it public just harms the credibility of hospitals unnecessarily. But
Trump wants to look like he is on top of it. No matter who or what it hurts. At this
time our hospitals  and other medical services need all the credibility they can get.

Though Trump extended the recovery date to April 30, He is claiming the peak will be on
Easter. This might be true for certain areas of the country, but the virus is moving around
the nation, and will be months  before we see a overall reduction.

Using lies and misleading statements, Trump is dancing around trying to take credit for
anything that might help his credibility. If Trump had not tried to  hide the fact that the
corona virus would be a pandemic. and pushed to really control it. He would likely have
guaranteed his re election. But no, Trumps paranoia and ego caused him to do the
opposite, and will likely cost his re election instead.

The longer this virus holds the world and this country hostage, the more damage to the
economy, and will likely push the world into a economic depression. So it's time Trump
gets out of the way, and let the experts do their job, because all he accomplishes is to
slow everything down with his economic worries.

Trump just can't stand it. He just has to brag on himself,
even if he has to  lie about it. He complains if a news
reporter ask a question he doesn't want to answer. Especially
if the question is about a lie, or a mistake he made.

There have been over 140,000 infections, and over 2,400 
deaths here in the United states . Also over 2,000  recorded
recoveries.

World wide over 750,000 have been infected, and over 30,000 deaths.

217 days left for Trump to convince Americans he is worth re electing.
Well he isn't going to do it by not being able to answer a simple question
about what is going on with the testing for the corona virus. When asked
by a governor about it, Trump said I haven't heard anything about  testing
for weeks. The governor should have responded by saying you should 
quit worrying about the  election and do your job. If he had, I am sure
Trump would have blown up. Because he doesn't like anyone telling him
 what to do. Because of this Trump is unable to do a good job, much
less be president.

The Governor  of New York continues to out perform Trump. He cares about
 the people while Trump worries about his own credibility.  The governor of
New York is on TV explaining the facts about the virus and how he is trying
to deal with it. When Trump is on TV he brags about how good a job he is
doing, and when the economy will be starting.   Not only that he shifts
to subjects that have nothing to do with public health. He seems to think
people want to look at him and hear him talk. Even if it's about nothing
relevant.  Just as he did at his rally's.

Trump claims to be buddy buddy with the leader of China. So he should be
working to help  bring  many of their doctors here to help our doctors with
this virus. They apparently have a pretty good handle on how to treat it.
It would take a order by the president, because i am sure many doctors
wouldn't  like taking suggestions from foreign doctors.

As the governor of New York said, FIMA should be handling distribution
of medical equipment  and supplies. The way it is states are competing 
with each other. Bidding against each other. It wouldn't surprise me if
Trump  and the far right are wanting it this way to make a lot of
money for their rich friends.  Because letting  FIMa or the Military
handle it would be a obvious way to do it.

The latest numbers are  162,000 infections and  over 3000 death.

World wide is almost 800,000  infections and over 38,000 deaths.
