Should Major Meetings/Conventions Be Cancelled Because Of The Covid-19?.....

I'm reading where other countries are cancelling events because of the Covid-19. I'm wondering if the U.S. should consider doing the same.

Many of these meetings/conventions have vendors/exhibitors and attendees that come in from China and other countries where the virus is infecting and killing people.

Most certainly - attendees to these meetings/conventions come from all States in the U.S. and will go back to those States afterwards. If they come into contact with others that may have the virus - the spread would increase dramatically.

So I'm asking should the U.S. take more of a precautionary stance and postpone such meetings/conventions until we have more of a handle on dealing with Covid-19.

I have a major meeting coming up in Chicago that I attend every year. I went to the website of the organization hosting the meeting and they address the situation and are taking some precautions. They will not open the International Exhibits and are deferring to U.S. Customs policies to deal with foreign show attendees counting on them to not allow these attendees who have been in China within 14 days of the beginning of the show to attend the show.

They also indicated that hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout venue and small hand sanitizer bottles will be given to attendees when they arrive.

I really don't know that this is enough to instill a warm feeling in the tummies of the attendees.

I'm not sure if it is definitively known how Covid-19 is spread yet. Are hand sanitizers enough?

What about the union workers that set up the show - how will they be protected?

Bottom line - even as I type this OP out I'm thinking my best decision is not to attend this year.

But the bigger question is shouldn't the U.S. be more proactive in the decision to even hold such large meetings when we have the threat of Covid-19 upon us?

I'm curious as to what others here may think about this.

How Did Trump Escape The Fate That Harvey Weinstein Faced Today?......

Trump has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault and I believe rape. His infamous comments from the bus about how he takes advantage of women was an admission of his guilt. He's paid off Stormy Daniels. I think one of his wives even accused Trump of rape or assault. These are all the incidents we know about.

How was Trump able to skirt by all these accusations? Why wasn't this pursued more by the press and the lawyers by these women? Was this all a matter of him using NDA's?

All of this happened before Trump won the presidency. Is he protected now - because a sitting president can't be indicted? Seems to me if all this was followed up with - we might not be stuck with Trump as president today.

Any thoughts?

Do You Feel Financially Secure?.....

Just curious as to what people have to say about that these days when we read and hear that the economy is good.

I'm Kinda Glad That Most Dems Are Not On Democratic Underground.....

and are sheltered from the stupid bickering that is going on between Dems here supporting their favorite candidate. Gals and Guys - bottom line it's hurting our Party and it's playing right into the hands of Trump, the Repugs and the Russians.

You can be sure that Trump, the Repugs and the Russians are monitoring the back and forth here on DU and that it will come back to haunt us and be used against us in the future before Nov.

Cut it out - for Gods sake!!!!! "Vote Blue - No Matter Who" "Without A Doubt - Don't Sit It Out"

Our mission is to take back our country. We have to beat Trump, the Repugs and Putin.

Come on people - let's get it together!!!!!

Can We Now Say That Russia Has Declared A Cyber War On The U.S. ? .....

Could we now say that Trump and the Repugs are committing 'treason' because they are actively going along with Russia by not doing anything to prevent Russian interference and essentially condoning Russia's actions?

Now Trump Has Cover And An Excuse If He Loses In November......

he can say that it was because of Russian help that the Dem Candidate won now. He can say that he is contesting the election and use that as an excuse to stay in office.

Essentially - with the help of Russia - he's put himself in a kind of a win-win situation.

Have You Noticed That Trump Really Fears.....

Adam Schiff?

Trump Exploits All Loopholes He Can To Circumvent Laws....

Aren't there any loopholes the Dems can exploit to stop him?

Two Out Of Three.....

Our alternatives for November 2020:

1. Vote Blue No Matter Who (smacks of big turnout - and a Dem win) There is more of us than there are them.

2. Sit Out The Election Because My Favorite Isn't In It (assures a win for Trump)

3. Vote for Trump (4 more years - yech!!!!)

Two of the three alternatives we will have assures a win for Trump. I don't think the American People are that stupid to want another 4 years of Trump.

We really have only one alternative in November and that is to "Vote Blue No Matter Who"

Do you really want to sit this one out? Do you really want to vote for Trump over a Dem nominee that may not be your first choice? Are you willing to risk another 4 years of Trump?
