This piecemeal shutdown approach is dragging things out. Why not SHUT IT ALL DOWN

NOW, in all US states and territories, so that we can hopefully be on track within weeks as opposed to months!?

And no, I'm in no way fully prepared and I dread the thought of eating spam, but I would much rather be locked down for 3 weeks versus 3 to 18 months. What are we waiting on? I'm growing suspicious. Millions of kids are out of school right now. Shouldn't we rip the bandaid off now?

Am I the only one feeling like this?

3. A national response requires a strong national leader.

Unfortunately the US doesn't have one at this time. Only the president can order such sweeping moves, and the person who claims he's in charge of everything, it an incompetent fool who has run out of bluster.

Trump puts his own interests first so it's unlikely he would willingly do anything that would affect his business enterprises and cut into his profits. He knows he's way over his head and paralyzed by fear that the gig is up, and he's about to be exposed as the moron he's always been

Trump has finally realised that the band's gone home and the audience is down to a tour bus from Shady Oaks Retirement Village on a stopover on their way to a Las Vegas gambling junket. There's no more hiding behind cheap bravado, lies and crude bullying, everyone can clearly see what some of us have been shouting all along, the emperor has no clothes.
