  • Governor Orders Coloradoans To Stay Home

    Gov. Polis yesterday officially ordered all of us to stay home due to the current crisis. Exceptions are for necessary movement to shop, medical care, take care of someone else, essential workers and so forth. The governor is not, according to himself, an "essential worker" and will be staying home.

    During his lengthy speech he lost no opportunity to fan the flames of panic, making wild claims of tens of thousands of deaths and similar inflammatory remarks..

    FYI...Polis is a Democrat.

      No...it would not. The governor has produced no facts to support his wild and irresponsible claims; however, if he keeps it up he will have to explain his own failure to act appropriately in handling the situation. It's on his shoulders...no one else's.

      Polis, BTW, barely survived a recent citizen recall, and his survival remains questionable.

        It's impossible to say how bad it would be without the restrictions. Any estimate can be wrong.

        Ohio put its first restrictions on bars and restaurants closing them on March 16th. Much tighter restrictions were put into effect on March 23rd.

        I figure the Denver area will be a hot spot for transmission with its major airport.

              How can you not?

              I think it would be better to work to prevent societal collapse than sit back and plan to make it work in your favor.

                Well, I guess the Republican governor of Maryland is a similar idiot.

                  It's simply the maths, extrapolating following the trend for most western countries.

                    And the doctor's and scientists are highly recommending staying home unless you have to go to the doctor or to shop. North Carolina hasn't done it yet so we'll see what happens.

                    It is too bad, though, that even in a pandemic some have to resort to partisan politics no matter what the situation is.

                    The US now has the most coronavirus cases of any nation, including China, and the number of dead is rising.

                      'We are doing very well with, I think, almost all of the governors, for the most part,' he said during a town hall on Fox News on Tuesday. 'But you know, it's a two-way street. They have to treat us well.'

                        Agree. If someone isn't 'nice' to Trump, then they are 'nasty.'

                              Indiana has had "in shelter" mode now since Tuesday I believe....apart from the store/restaurant closures, I don't think anyone here is taking it seriously. I see a LOT of people out and about doing regular business.

                              With regard to the situation as a whole, I'm of the firm belief that the exceptionally low fuel prices are the reason why we haven't yet seen panic/violence/fighting in the streets, and hopefully this will not happen.
