    If it helps, it’s been reported by multiple news orgs and the WH said the convo was “pleasant” but not about hiring for any internal position.

    Personally, I think Trump called J-Lo’s phone to “chat” and she had A-Rod answer it...

    Yeah, I actually did google it. I guess this pesky virus thingy is getting in the way of his golf game, so he has to find other outlets. God bless you Arod!

    So I start a thread about this virus that is obviously now spreading quite rapidly in our country and is killing people and hospitalizing so many, much more so than I could have imagined when I started the thread and invoked a little jocular humor in the beginning of it. I really didn't think that it would or could effect us as much as it has or looks like it more than likely will on such a rapidly increasing basis. Obviously it is gaining so much traction that it now has many of us, including myself being "Ordered" by Big Brother on the Local, State and Federal levels to Stay-At-Home unless essential and vital trips out are needed. This Pandemic is causing millions of us to be out of work, out of pay and businesses to be shut down and closed for Lord only who knows how long. Our way of life as we know it and the things we all take for granted has just been violently interrupted and completely intercepted by this virus the likes of which no one has ever seen in our lifetimes. In my state of Ohio alone they are now predicting upwards of 10,000 cases per day as this thing peaks anywhere from mid-April to mid-May. I hope they're wrong.

    This Pandemic is sickening, disruptive and painful in what most of us are having to go through right now along with the all too familiar new themes of #Coronavirus, #Social Distancing, #WashYourHands, #Quarantined, #SixFeetApart and so on infiltrating our everyday speech both online and off. Some people I know personally are taking this thing to a complete level of "Panicdemic" and "Coronapocalypse" which in my opinion is a bit extreme, however I don't fault anyone for handling this however they want as their lives and their family's lives obviously come first and I totally get that. So to me there's no "right way or wrong way" to handle this and I'm faulting no one whichever way they choose to look at it. However this measure of fear doesn't represent everyone who is facing this. Myself, I'm trying to be what I call Common Sense Caution. Not taking it too lightly, but not flat out freaking out about it either. But that again is just me.

    Either way we are all in this fight together and no one can tell us what we are truly in for or much less finding a solid solution at this point in this crazy new journey we're all unfortunately embarking on at this time. I hope and pray that it doesn't live up to some of the predictions that some of the experts are "guessing it may or will reach." I hope that they're wrong and that the hype is wrong as well, not only for me and my family and friends but for everyone here as well and your families and friends also.

    But you know what I find just as sickening is that this could have been an interesting thread which may have continued to be informative and eye-opening for all of us facing this situation. It could have contained tips on what different businesses are doing for their customers, which many are and could be of benefit to many here just as an example. Unfortunately that isn't happening but maybe it still could be. It's why I started the thread.

    Instead on page 3, tp referred to using the combination of hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin as Trump Care. Although the choice of words might not have been an appropriate use of this experimental combination to try and treat some patients with, it has however shown some positive results in China, Italy, France, South Korea and here in the US. The FDA has cleared the way for New York to use this "experimental" combination which Governor Cuomo has already started implementing. Trump also basically said "Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't, I have a good feeling about it and I've been right about a lot of things. What the hell do we have to lose?" But the thread unfotunately just went downhill from there.

    "ORANGE MAN BAD" to coin a phrase from Steve Deace, is what so many people enjoy doing. I thought the Pure Hatred for "W" was bad back in the day going all the way back to the Beckett boards but I have to admit that the level of pure unadulterated hatred for this man is something that, like the virus, is simply nothing I've never seen in my lifetime up until now. IF Trump found a cure for this virus himself tomorrow he would still be extremely despised and bitterly hated. I'll give props to nosterbor for at least attempting to get this thread back on track even though it was to no avail. Here's an idea, if you hate the guy so much why not start a thread with the Title: WE HATE TRUMP! And then just have at it.

    I do want to say that I personally was never a "Pro-Trumper." Never had the hat, sign or bumper sticker either. Matter of fact I'll most certainly agree that the man is childish, a braggart, a narcissist, holds a grudge, heaps praise on himself and all of the likes therein. BUT, what I've found is that with 95% of the media, CNN and MSNBC leading this charge, and everyone on the left absolutely hating this guy, it's actually pushing me to like him more and more. I've become accustomed to the way this man speaks but I just look at what he's done, and for me I personally think he's done a lot of good things outside of the unpolished decorum that he doesn't have and never will have. I think in spite of his many shortcomings that he truly does love this country and he really is trying to make it better in spite of his rhetoric. I will say as probably some of you already knew before, that I've been a lifelong Republican because I've always been conservative in nature and according to my faith. But I'll also say that at some point I'm going to go down to the elections office and change my status to Independent because so many in our government are nothing but a bunch or power-hungry, self-serving phonies and hypocrites and especially Socialists, mostly on the left but still on both sides and I no longer wish to have an affiliation period.



    I think we can do much better than this guys. Again we are all in this together and throughout my life we've come together many times regardless of race, gender, social stature and especially political party affiliation.

    So maybe now's the time, at least for a while??

    Just some thoughts from A Proud Gun-Totin', Bible Thumper...

    Personally, I have no “hatred” for Trump.

    I’ve said dozens of times, he’s a fun guy, probably a blast at parties and has great “inside Hollywood” stories about big name celebrities.

    But those type of guys aren’t made to be leaders.

    And he has absolutely no qualifications or skills to be a leader of any kind, let alone POTUS.

    I’ll just ask again the first question I asked his sheep-like cultists:

    Name me one single Corporation that would name Trump to any senior position, let alone CEO.

    It’s been four years and I’ve yet to get an answer...

    Randy - that's cool and no hard feelings, I'm not gonna fire back at you.

    But it is extremely difficult for me to find anything positive about his response to this problem. From day one he has given us a steady stream of maligniant narcissism, pettiness, ignorance, and dangerous lies, and this is coming from the man with the biggest bullhorn in the world. He did not create this problem, and he's not the only one responsible for leading us through it. But it is my firm opinion that he is single-handedly doing more damage to our response than any other single individual, and his words and actions are certainly fair topic for this thread.

    However you started this thread for many other reasons, not for bashing The Donald. And I get it. So I'll lay off the wisecracks and insults a bit, I promise.

    No harm, no foul. Being a part of this group for over 20 years now, I can fully take the heat and the fire thrown my way if that were to be the focus, but that's not my point here at all. I get where your coming from and I mentioned his many faults in my post. The thing that upset me was the continuing barrage from page 3 to page 7 of everything I've already mentioned.
    So I wanted to point out my obvious frustrations but at the same time attempt to get this conversation back on track so to speak because this situation looks like it's nowhere near coming to a head and who knows what we're in for in the future.

    We like guns anyways and I'm a Sig Sauer kind of guy!

    Well it's good to hear that it's not hatred because that does absolutely no good with what we're faced with, and honestly I've learned a lot in my life and holding in any hatred and bitterness just ends up hurting yourself. I mean we can get that hatred all day long every day from the msm and social media. I'd just prefer not to see it here as I thought it could be an informative and constructive thread.
    I'm going to assume the sheep-like cultists was not directed at me because I'm nothing of the sort nor have I ever been.
    I guess my overall point is that we're all in this boat together and the boat at this point appears to be sinking. So as it starts sinking a little more rapidly are some of us going to try to chuck the water out of the boat while othes try to steer us to shore? Or are we all just going to sit around in the boat complaining about who made the hole in it while we just continue to sink?
    It's my hope that we can get out of this damn thing and get it to shore as soon as possible. But at this point it's just impossible to have any kind of clue as to when that will be or what kind of carnage has been left in it's path. I don't know anyone personally who has caught this virus yet, but I'm afraid before this is all over that a lot of us if not all of us here will have known someone who has or possibly many who have and perhaps even ourselves.

    And I'll add this, the routine now at least in my household and probably many others here as well is pretty much wake up, get on your phone, computer, watch tv, eat, sleep, repeat. And we're only a couple weeks into this.
    There's no ball games or sports to watch, there's no restaurants to go to, there's no hanging out with friends and in many cases family, no sporting events to attend or concerts to see. The list goes on and on.
    But just to add a little levity to the situation this might just be my biggest fear:
