Default Planes and Greyhounds

They should both be shut down.

My daughter last week flew to anchorage. And from what she said they are flying with less than 1/3 the normal passengers and have them spaced out as far apart as possible.

They're still operating because people aren't following the recommendations to remain in place, preferring instead to travel and spread it all over!

Commerial airlines should have been shut down, or at the very least had severe incoming from other countries restrictions placed on them when it became apparent this chinesevirus was already spreading out of control in China.

Let's face the facts, if the lefties would not have been coddled so our border restrictions were loosened, a whole bunch of problems would already be under control, and maybe, just maybe, those airlines would not have been permitted to bring anyone into the US without a quarantine period.

If the airlines are allowed to continue operating during this COVID19 epidemic we have n o chance of containing it so it can burn itself out. Fastest way on GOD'S green earth to spread ANY contagious disease.

Here's hoping that the lessons learned from this epidemic are put into a plan for the next time something like this comes along. Number one should be that all inbound travel is immediately stopped until a complete understanding of the nature of the problem is known. If you insist on traveling outside the country, you should be prepared to be stuck for awhile in some other country.

Once and for all, our borders need to be secured as much as possible. Our strategic and critical medicines must be made in the USA. FEMA must be charged with accruing and maintaining sufficient stocks of medical devices and supplies.

My personal plans are to continue to stay away from crowds, off of airplanes, cruise ships, buses, trains, subways, crowded elevators, submarines and aircraft carriers. I've got to work on keeping my hands off my face and staying away from other human beans, bats and snakes.

Aren't the Dems always pushing a health Care program that will be detrimental to the older segment of the population. So if that segment dies off because of the virus there is less resistance to their health care plan and less drain on SS and Medicare...

the thing I see more ironic then anything is the churches. Now im a church going Christian but to gather together today in a closed building to pray for the end of this virus when in fact your doing your part to help spread it even further is the ulitimate in stupidity. God hears you at home as well as he does in your church.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!
