    Now, I am not saying if this is a good thing or bad thing. All I have to say about announcing ahead of time is that Trump did not see any disaster movies.

    I hope the government would not make decisions based on disaster movies. Maybe he wants them to move to areas where there still available hospital resources, especially ventilators.

    Personally, I'd like to see NY, NJ and CA quarantined permanently!

    Also, if people haven't left those areas because they were already dung-piles, why would they leave over this?

    As I understand, the quarantine of new york was heavily researched a couple of decades ago. The principal investigator of this project was a researcher named Snake Plissken. He was able to demonstrate that even the most quarantined sections of new york could have weaknesses when the investigator was injected with an explosive device. Nonetheless, I think we should re-evaluate and start building a quarantine wall around NYC. This time we could arm the watchtowers with remote file guns.

    I propose a new law: If you live in CA, NY, NJ, you have until you are 29 to move out. If you haven't figured it out by then, we don't want you to spread the disease.

    I moved out when I was about 26. But what good did it do me? I wound up in Illinois

    I just hope people do not rush too fast for a vaccine that could be potentially more dangerous. We probably do go a bit overboard on the safe side for drug testing, but maybe that is not such a bad thing.

    It reminds me of the episode "The Cure" in the TV show "Seven Days" (I loved that show, and can be watched on YouTube!)

    Scientist creates a vaccine for cancer, everyone in the world gets it, then the whole world dies from after effects.

    Make it permanent. Maybe that will keep them from moving to Florida and screwing up our politics. They all seem to move into South Florida and then start voting for the same kinds of junk (not the word I wanted to use but at least it will get by the censors) and messing up our state. I'll never understand why people move somewhere to get away from something then try to make their new home just like their old home.

    The NY quarantine fence gate has been open too long already. That herd of virus is long gone.

    I've never been to Florida. I had my fill of heat and bugs in the delta years ago.
