    It is my opinion, and I only have one unconfirmed source, that if google continued to censor postings they would be treated as a “publisher” and become liable for prosecution, just like newspapers or book publishers are for libelous material.

    Jim, it is my belief that there will be not only temporary disruption of Chinese exports, but also a permanent disruption of many products from China.
    As such this will permanently disable significant chunks of the world economy.

      I don’t disagree, I just believe the US is in the best positioned to ride the economic storm out – and separation from the CCP is a good thing.

      It must be done carefully, and is a sophisticated strategic way – I see this when I see Trump talking about a good relationship with Xi, but pushing back on lower staff propaganda. Americans don’t take threats well, and Trump is the king at not taking threats well.

      This virus gives a an opportunity the West would not have had. Things are at a stand still, easier to start from a lower baseline.

    Last I heard out of DC was that the Democrats were refusing to make any agreement until Trump cancelled the DoJ lawsuit against Obamacare.
    I guess the cancellation of Obamacare was a campaign promise, but I was thinking with this virus problem we were headed towards universal healthcare anyway.

      I was wondering where that went

    Trump tweet……….on the virus……..
    Trump’s frustrations spilled into public overnight, tweeting, in all caps that “WE CANNOT LET THE CURSE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO.”

    His election depends on a good economy……Or he is Hooverized……..
    And……..
    JIMMY , where did you get the 2% number…..concerning low pay earners….?
    There are 95,000,000 not in the work force.

      The 2% is from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics – it is the number of minimum wage workers. You are right, there are a lot of people not in the labor force, and it there will be more unemployed this reporting period by a lot – that will hurt. But my point is minimum wage workers do not impact the economy significantly, as most higher paid employees are working remotely or are still working – service sector jobs in restaurants, leisure, travel are being hammered, but they can come back easily.

      Manufacturing is slowing, but if the Trumpster drops the quarantine, and we have treatments, this will turn back on. It is a gamble, and will cost some at-risk folks, sadly, but we do not need a few years of depression and Joe Biden at the helm.

      AJ, if the doctors were in charge, we would all be in isolation. There is a cost to the that – destroying our economy. Losing our economy will hurt more of the poor than the virus ever will. There is a balance in all things. Fauci is a doctor, he does not report to the people.

    I noticed during the last year I’m not visiting Drudge the way I used to. Seemed to be less a Conservative viewpoint as it was in the past. I’m visiting Zero Hedge the most now.
