    The chart reflects nothing more than how AllSides believes these news media agencies to be perceived, according to their own caveat: "Ratings do not reflect accuracy or credibility, they speak to perspective only." Perception does not necessarily equal reality.

    Screw these communist-democrats. They are loving all this "power" they've given themselves, and they don't want to give it up.
    The more you hear about the timeline, the suppression of information, the outright lies, and dubious "models" they used to justify this disaster of a shutdown, the more you realize that the Chinese virus was far from the main reason for shutting everything down. This was, at its simplest, China hitting the rest of the world to bring us down economically to their level, since Trump's trade war brought them to their knees. And this country's antiTrump wing that would rather see us dead than let Trump have a so-called "Victory" are in on it up to their beady little eyes.

    Most nights during the Blitz Edward R. Murrow would broadcast via radio from London telling the world blow for blow what was happening to England and Europe. Several times during the bombings his office or hotel room or both were destroyed. He moved to a different location and kept reporting. He worked with a small group of dedicated reporters who became known as the Murrow Boys. Many of the Murrow Boys survived the war and went on to become the journalists that appeared on TV night after night on black and white TV's across the country such as Harry Reasoner. Call me a romantic but what we need today is an Edward R. Murrow.

    If YOU feel that YOU are at risk, then YOU should take precautions to protect YOURSELF. If YOU have loved one's who may be at risk, then YOU should take precautions to protect YOURSELF and YOUR loved one's. The rest of this country needs to move on! Placing the entire country into quarantine IS NOT THE ANSWER. Governors who seek to become dictators have become quite evident at this point.

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    This is a little scary for me, agreeing with someone who calls themselves deranged. Not a "deranged" type comment at all, perfectly reasonable in fact.

    Here's a bit of news from one of our neighboring counties. They must have a crystal ball to be able to tell which direction this virus will take over the next 8 weeks. I guess no business is good business in Lehigh County.

    Lubbock County, pop. 310,000 plus, reported no new cases of the Wuhan Virus today. This is the second day of no new cases in the past week. We are getting there. Open the city up!

    I think the democrats have realized that once again, they are like the coyote who realizes just a little too late that a clever scheme is about to come crushing down.



    Trying to indict Trump for every shortfall, failure, misstep, and lack of prescience, democrats -- supported and emboldened by the predictably sycophantic media, tried to assign every Covid-19-related death, every new corona virus case, every blip in the infection trend to his failure to accurately predict the nature of a novel virus and its effect on the U.S.

    Now, the democrat leaders -- governors, congressthings, et al. -- are reaping the results of that. Now, THEY are in the positions to make decisions that will effect hundreds of thousands of lives. THEIR decisions will predictably result in problems, spikes, and deaths. THEY'RE the ones who will be accountable for the outcomes.

    I think they know they are caught in a trap of their own making, and in trying to thread the re-opening needle perfectly, they are falling victim to the age-old nemesis of many decision-makers -- the 'paralysis of analysis'.

    They are waiting for that perfect moment, that sublime time that will guarantee they can stand in front of the cameras and say, 'See, I did it perfectly. There were no unavoidable deaths, and no unnecessary economic losses.'

    Because they know that the wind they sowed with spurious and hyperbolic accusations against Trump will be the whirlwind coming back at them between now and November.
