    Sounds like it may be in Rock Island. Right across the river from me. Gangs rule entire areas. Police last I knew went 2 officers per cruiser and 2 cruisers on every patrol in those housing areas. One behind the other. Chicago gangs control!

    Good grief.

    It's been known for now 8+ weeks that asymptomatic people can have it and spread it for up to a month without symptoms. Are you even following this or just making stuff up?

    Also the new DOD policy is everyone should wear face mask if unable to stay away at least 6 feet

    My wife had that as well, for 3 weeks in December. Apparently--according to the "TV medical experts" it was a corona virus but not THE Corona Virus.

    There are many coronavirus. COVID-19 is only one of them. They are not all the same.

    Some folks will get unemployment. Some employers may have sub pay or do other payroll.
    And some folks are going to have it rough.

    I aint rich. Live within my means. I took a vacation once in 1995. Not kidding.
    Divorce, job loss, kids in college.........aint flowing in the dough.

    But this was known to be coming, and "saving for a rainy day" is always good.
    A lot of middle class people did not, instead chose to play Keeping Up with the Jones's.
    No sympathy from me.

    If I sail through this OK, and those dipsticks don't.............might get me a camper, motorcycle or little fishing boat at a great price.

    If that many people are doing non-essential jobs, it only further underscores the need to bring manufacturing back to this country.

    The UK government gives the daily updates on the coronavirus, like the federal government in America. You will notice they answer all questions from the press without deflecting / avoiding the questions with false news allegations.

    Is the F.M. a social democrat like the press?

    Obama used to deflect, stutter, verbal pause, etc. and the US MSM fawned all over it.

    It is refreshing to have someone with the guts to say pizz up a rope to dumbazzes.

    If you mean the first minister in N/I, they would be seen as a right wing party.

    Well then, what is the name of the liberal party in Northern Ireland? Descendants of Marx?

    Possibly because your press doesn't continually try to subvert your leader with biased fake-news questions.
    Or because nobody gives a turd about what the first minister of a small second-world country has to say about anything.

    You always tell us you are a citizen of Northern Ireland, not a subject of the U.K.

    Please pick one and stick with it.

    Does the First Minister give an update that we can watch and commentate on?

    It was the UK minster doing the briefing get it right. I am sure plenty are interested on how the virus is effecting different countries, its a indication of how the virus will effect their country etc. Education is a wonderful thing, you should try it.
