#1 So Trump restricting flights to Europe was a lucky coincidence?

#2 Once again, OrangeMan is proved correct despite his haters.

This will blow over, markets will recover, the nation will finally get rid of the Chinese supply-chain yoke, and OrangeMan will be re-elected in November.,

#3 Once again, OrangeMan is proved correct despite his haters.

No, it's still wrong when Trump does it, even if everyone else is now doing the same thing. It just is.

NO, it is not! When your biggest enemy is a substantial segment of your population, sworn to your destruction and does not play by any rules. At SOME point you have start playing for keeps.

We can longer afford the attitude of being "better than that"! This is for the survival of the Republic.

#6 #3 - SteveS - I'm 99% with you on issues, but not this. It was the right decision and a painful one for all invoilved. Citzens, Perm Residents, and direct family weren't stopped (MSM doesn't tell you that) but asked to self-quarantine

#8  SteveS - I'm 99% with you on issues, but...

Sorry if I wasn't clear. Jokes are never funny when you have to explain them.

I was goofing on the knee-jerk tendency of the Dems/Media to oppose whatever Trump does even when it's the sensible thing to do - like closing the borders. It's totally insane. And it's gotten so bad that if President Trump came out in favor of babies, the Dems would advocate killing infants in the womb. Oh, wait... but you get what I mean.

And for the record, I expect the rest of Lex's predictions in #2 to come to pass.

#9 What does "asked to self-quarantine" mean in the U.S.? Is it mandatory and strictly enforced?

#10 Sorry, distracted enough to miss the snark. My bad

#11  What does "asked to self-quarantine" mean in the U.S.? Is it mandatory and strictly enforced?

I suspect not enforced, European Conservative. This may change, now that President Trump and several state governors have announced that they have emergency powers for all sorts of things during the emergency.

My household has a member who is now recovering from.... something. Once she realized she was sick she called the doctor’s office, which advised her to treat symptoms and self-isolate unless she gets bad enough to need hospitalization. So she cancelled activities and has been staying in her bedroom, living on homemade breakfast burritos and chicken noodle soup. Following her announcement we wiped down the house with sanitizing wipes again, and the rest of us are washing hands frequently and mostly staying home just in case, except for the occasional run to the grocery store and Mr. Wife’s martial arts class. Last night we ordered a pizza, which Mr. Wife picked up, paying by credit card.

#14 TW ~ Adding your family to my rather lengthy prayer list.

#15 We’re fine, truly. Whatever it was didn’t get bad, and she asked me last night if it would be ok to go to her group meeting on Tuesday. (No. Just in case.) We’re just being excessively cautious on the off chance — and in case it makes us vulnerable to other things.

#16 Great! You're now on the stand-by prayer list.
