    Nothing has changed in regards to the Kungflu but the demand for supplies, so the worker will return. No surprise there.

    I think "essential person" status is more politically based than factually based. The youngest daughter works for a major medical device company that is producing respirators and as an engineer in regulatory, she is working from home. The oldest daughter is an aerospace engineer working in quality control at a major plant producing electrical parts for jet engines and she works every day as a "essential person". Her plant has never shut down. That plant has 700 employees and inside the plant there is no social distancing.

    Makes me wonder with what I'm seeing.

    It is indeed :) That because the biggest hit from this plague is in macro economy rather than health. Global market has already slumped and I strongly doubt any country could afford having this plague rampaging further more than a year.

    Prior to the year 2000, there was a glove factory in a town near to where I was raised. A coworker of mine did technical work for them when their own staff couldn't repair the automation equipment.

    Then all the jobs went overseas and the plant shut down causing the permanent loss of over 100 jobs for that town.

    Some are blaming Trump for not being more responsive to this viral pandemic. To some degree, they are right. Trump should have been FAR more aggressive in bringing jobs back to America. A nation cannot be dependent on other nations for their medical supplies nor their military supplies. It is OK to import some food types from other nations just so long as a country can farm its own essential foods.

    If a nation cannot provide its own essentials then it should at least have the excavation equipment to dig enormous mass graves.

    What President Trump has done in his first three years is phenomenal. Consider that he accomplished this with no help from the House and much resistance in the Senate. Add to that the constant bombardment by the democrats and the incessant distractions fighting impeachment and a steady stream of lies from the press. He has done better than any other president in my lifetime.

      I never liked him ... until he'd been in office for a while. I thought he would compromise, but he didn't. I personally love how he has stood up to the anti-Constitution, anti-God crowd. I love how he has yelled back at the Leftist press who are always in adolescent-tantrum mode.

      In those areas where Covid-19 is rare, restrictions can be loosened as the virus cools off. For places like NYC, they will have to be confined to their city for a good time lest they infect Heartland America -- multiple strains of the c19 have been discovered in the cities. Besides, NYC I no longer consider to be a part of America -- it is an international city, as are Seattle, L.A., SanFran, ... .

    I was a lot like you Old Geezer. I didn't vote for Trump as much as I voted against the Evil Bi+ch. I will say that he is the first elected president in a long time that has done as much as humanly possible to actually DO the things he promised before he was elected. Republicans are especially good at promising the moon and then laughing and doing the opposite. I REMEMBER their 1994 "Contract with America" and George the First's "Read my lips no new taxes." The democraps usually tell us upfront that they want to cut our throats and destroy our nation and then actually do try. Hell of a choice.

    I think that the fact that Trump is pretty much hated almost as much by the rapeyoublican big shots as he is by the dumbocraps is big points in his favor.

      Here is my simple solution. I vote the GOP ticket but also during the primaries, I vote against all incumbents. Won't be able to get rid of all the RHINO's or weak / corrupt politicians during the first few elections but we will be able to push the party in the right direction.
