What the hell is wrong with him!
Michigan’s Governor did the same thing. Threatened doctors and pharmacists who dared try to fill doctors’ scripts.

I'm really ready to tar and feather them all.  They want to get rid of guns?  Let's start my taking them away from those that guard THEM, and then let's talk about term limits.
Trump should recall all of Congress to Washington for a special session, and make all of their flights have a mandatory 8 hour  layover at JFK.

Good Lord no!  Beck always makes me feel depressed.  Rush always uplifts me and makes me feel good.  I can't think of a replacement for Rush 1/1000 as good. :(
I totally agree. I like Mark Levin a lot, but his “angry all the time” fatigues me. Hannity is a joke. Mark Stein is great and humorous, but doesn’t have Rush’s depth.

I think that mantle remains empty once he goes. No one can fill it, though many will try and many will try to claim the title.

Glenn Beck is a kook, and he's all about his own enrichment.  And he'll use whatever, or whoever, to benefit himself financially.  Just ask his former employees.

 And you are correct, it's just not the left.  These leeches and parasites need to burn in hell (not that I need more of them).
Beck is a drama queen. I can’t stand him. When talking about who will take up the mantle when Rush Limbaugh passes away or retires, my brother suggested Beck. NFW.

Nothing can protect anyone from the Clinton's.

Exactly. Gain herd immunity, stop the transmission. Think chickenpox.

I just got a notice from American that they will no longer serve you anything on flights under 4 hours, unless you maybe beg them for a sip of water.  Also they’ve “relaxed their seating policy”, whatever that means.
I see some airlines adopting the Southwest boarding model.

How about Andrew Gillum?
He just had a Democrat resume-enhancing event so it makes sense.

Someone please tell me again, you know, how Trump is a wannabe dictator, and a facist?

Meanwhile, in LA
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

There is ends and there is ends.  During H1N1 how many of us even thought about it at all during a normal day? Life went on as usual.

We want this economic death spiral to end. The course of covid19 will definitely not end by Easter but the public, at least the smart ones, care much more about the former.
Exactly. This shelter in place bullshit means that many of us aren’t getting it and building antibodies. What could go wrong?

Yes, but we have the kinder, gentler "Safer at home" vs. Shelter in place.  Thank goodness liquor stores are essential here.
Yea, that’s what our governor calls it too.

Accountants are an “Essential business” so I’m a pretty big deal.

Add Minnesota to the list

Just 2 weeks "trust me"
I’ll take your two weeks. Our governor doubled down and imposed it for 30 days until 4/24.  No other state in the country has done that. I guess we’re special.

I had to track down the article where I read about the researcher. It is here:

Quoting in part:

“The United States is home to the most innovative biotech companies and university research laboratories in the world. That fact should have given our country a huge advantage with respect to detecting and monitoring emerging cases of COVID-19 caused by the new coronavirus outbreak.

Instead, as The New York Times reports in a terrific new article, officials at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stymied private and academic development of diagnostic tests that might have provided an early warning and a head start on controlling the epidemic that is now spreading across the country.

As the Times reports, Seattle infectious disease expert Dr. Helen Chu had, by January, collected a huge number of nasal swabs from local residents who were experiencing symptoms as part of a research project on flu. She proposed, to federal and state officials, testing those samples for coronavirus infections. As the Times reports, the CDC told Chu and her team that they could not test the samples unless their laboratory test was approved by the FDA. The FDA refused to approve Chu's test on the grounds that her lab, according to the Times, "was not certified as a clinical laboratory under regulations established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a process that could take months."

In the meantime, the CDC required that public health officials could only use the diagnostic test designed by the agency. That test released on February 5 turned out to be badly flawed. The CDC's insistence on a top-down centralized testing regime greatly slowed down the process of disease detection as the infection rate was accelerating.

A frustrated Chu and her colleagues began testing on February 25 without government approval. They almost immediately detected a coronavirus infection in a local teenager with no recent travel history. Chu warned local public health officials of her lab's finding and the teenager's school was closed as a precaution. The teen's diagnosis strongly suggested that the disease had been circulating throughout the western part of Washington for weeks. We now know that that is likely true.

Did the FDA and CDC functionaries commend Chu for being proactive? Not at all. Washington state epidemiologist Scott Lindquist recalled, "What they said on that phone call very clearly was cease and desist to Helen Chu. Stop testing." On February 29, the FDA finally agreed to unleash America's vibrant biotech companies and academic labs by allowing them to develop and deploy new tests for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.“

Holy fuck. Heads need to roll, and Trump is the man to do it.

Thanks for the article.
