Placeholder It's Your Call

Insanity

I see the Democrats complaining about the corporations getting part of the money. Gee, don’t corporations hire millions of people in this country? My paycheck came from a corporation. I was always glad when my corporation did well because I knew my check was secure. The Democrats are absolutely insane.

Be the best

So if America had a highly educated president, like President Barack Obama was, we wouldn’t be dealing with this situation. But it’s obvious that this president is not mentally stable enough or educated enough to handle a situation like this, or a crisis like this. It is really the ultimate failure.

Limits on food

I notice the City Council is doing something about the price gouging. Well, maybe they need to do something about these people hoarding the food, you know, going in and getting all the toilet paper and milk and such. They need to limit it to two loaves of bread, a gallon of milk and stuff like that so other people can have food. Maybe the City Council needs to check into that too.

Up next

Mark Levin said that the Democrats want the airline industry to be carbon neutral by 2025. That is absolutely impossible. They want to shut down the airlines, and I guarantee you, gasoline-powered cars are next.

An honest man

The viruses when Obama was in office — Ebola, SARS, swine flu — nothing was canceled, suspended and the stock market was smooth sailing, because Obama was honest and competent, and Americans could trust his leadership in a crisis.

Outside the box

I’m calling in about the virus. I wondered if any one considered leasing the Downtown hotel and checking on Lake Contrary and Hyde schools? They all would have kitchens in them, too.

Flaw in system

Quite a few senior citizens don’t benefit from the early morning shopping hour. Many elderly people can’t drive in the dark.

Too close

I just drove by Family Guidance and there are 80 to 100 cars in the parking lot for that small building on 22nd Street. Seems like the last thing they should be doing is gathering in one building and then going out and servicing individuals across our community.

Trump: "We have to protect our Asian Americans."

Q: What concrete measure are you taking to combat hate crimes against Asian Americans?

Trump: "Well I don't know. All I know is Asian Americans in our country are doing fantastically well. I am very close to them as you know.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is facing a new sexual assault allegation, from a woman named Tara Reade, who says she has been trying to share her story since 1993 when it allegedly happened. Reade’s allegation comes in the midst of Biden’s surging presidential campaign and is consistent with other stories women have shared about their discomfort with the way Biden has touched them.

That matters to Trump supporters?

HO HUM.... A Reuters/Ipsos online survey of more than 4,000 Americans found 49% approve of Trump's handling of the COVID-19 crisis, while 44% disapproved. .... An Economist/YouGov poll also found that 49% approve of Trump's management of the outbreak with 44% saying they disapprove. And, as with the Reuters poll, the opinions largely fell along party lines.... A Gallup poll released Tuesday found 60% of Americans thought Trump was doing a good job of dealing with the pandemic, while 38% disapproved. ... And an ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday found 55% approved of Trump's response, a 12-percentage-point improvement over the week before. (posted for aj's poll boards)

Still terrible numbers. Look at W’s numbers following 9/11

penelopegoodbody@yahoo.com

The U.S. has far better reporting from cases as evidenced from the data from the CDC than other countries including China. U.S. numbers may seem higher than other countries due to this fact.

aj0201@gmail.com

I’m old enough to remember when the Presidunce said we’d be at or near zero in a few days.

aj0201@gmail.com

The US now has more confirmed cases than China. The virus doesn’t move. People move the virus. People need to stop moving.

grandpadude1945@gmail.com

Are you staying home or do you go to the office?

aj0201@gmail.com

Home. Telehealth!

penelopegoodbody@yahoo.com

Abortion clinics are being shut down all over the U.S. Praise the Lord!

aj0201@gmail.com

We will likely surpass Italy and China this weekend in total cases as we are still finding new cases. The idiot-in-Chief wants to forego quarantine and social distancing by Easter. How ridiculous.

houdiniharry

there are sections of the country where current directives can and should be relaxed; with no apparent crisis in st. joe area... why should "everything" be closed.. and people out of work ? sure, it's serious, but business owners still need to survive-just be very careful how you run your business

aj0201@gmail.com

Your business won’t survive if you’re dead. Please read up on how highly contagious infectious diseases work. You sound like Trump. “We have it contained.” “In a few days it’ll be down to zero.” That was when we had 15 cases. Over 60,000 now in less than a month. Don’t be stupid.

houdiniharry

complete over reaction...as expected from a whiner. read again what i posted.. ST JOE, not elsewhere

houdiniharry

"stay at home" .. BS, I have things to do and I AM going out to do them.. aj, you convince everyone else to ignore needs and continue to peddle your nonsense.....

houdiniharry

YOU continue to read up, since you have nothing else to do... must be nice to collect your monthly check with no worries.... Washington DC could use your expertise

aj0201

You're thinking is like the idiot president. He thought shutting down flights from china is what would keep us safe. He was wrong. You're wrong. Chances are, someone has it in St. Joe. And if one does, others do as well. We don't really know because we bungled the way we test.

aj0201

When dealing with an unknown virus, with limited ability to test, overreaction keeps people safe. You probably don't hunt or shoot a gun, do you? "You can never be too safe" was the motto taught to me by my father and grandfather with a gun. Seems it applies nicely here as well.

aj0201

I'm still working. Telehealth is great!

aj0201

Remember this, the virus doesn't move, people move the virus. People need to stop moving.

aj0201@gmail.com

It seems you want to wait til there is a problem rather than prevent the problem.

houdiniharry

oh yes aj, i have several guns..i can show you how to shoot well also

houdiniharry

i don't have a problem, you have the problem..it's in your head

aj0201@gmail.com

Sadly, the US dearh toll has passed 1000. Trump and his supporters are still touting canceling flights from China as a decisive action on his part. Proof positive none of them understands how infectious diseases work (you’d think Trump would given that hes bragged about avoiding STDs as his own personal Vietnam).

houdiniharry

Since you know better than anyone, i suggest you run the country

aj0201@gmail.com

On this issue, it’s easy. Only grocery and medical operations stay open. Everything else shuts down. Suspend financial institutions. For 21 days.

houdiniharry

NOPE, completely disagree ...for ST JOE

aj0201

Do the city limits of St. Joe somehow magically keep virus from happening?

houdiniharry

lol @ the nutcase

houdiniharry

no gas ? can't grocery shop.. can't go to hospital.. suspend financial institutions.. no deposits, no withdrawals...means no money for gas or groceries...sure, sure, sure, good thinking

Pandemic---What we are dealing with is unprecedented as anyone should be able to see. The virus did not start in the United States, it began in China (in the same town where a biomedical lab is located). Using this virus as a political took is shameless and anti-American. Democrats, ask your party why Pelosi delayed funding for laid off workers in an attempt to load the legislation with liberal policies not related to the crisis? Delays in getting out check can be laid at the feet of Pelosi. Think about that at election time.

bigoak

Oil prices---Two points: (1) We would be in trouble with oil right now if Trump had not allowed fracking and opened more oil drilling. (2)--OPEC flooded the market with oil (which reduced prices). Trump realized it was a bargain, so he bought the entire glut of oil and re-filled our reserves. It was a brilliant move and assured our oil supply for years to come and keeps our prices stabilized. Good job, President Trump!

bigoak

Limits on food---most stores have instituted restriction on the number of items a shopper can buy.

bigoak

Too close---they have a lot of your tax dollars to give away.

bigoak

Flaw in the system--No one should be driving in the dark. It is why cars have headlights.

bigoak

An honest man--(Obama)--You must come from a different planet, caller. You are very confused.

Dilly

I guess you missed my It's Your Call the other day comparing trump to Obama where trump had 103 in the first ten days and Obama had 16 in 7 years. Kind of shows the lie of your statement.

houdiniharry

in the next fifty years you will STILL be comparing Trump to Obama..NOBODY CARES

bigoak

Insanity---Democrats obviously have a poor understanding of economics. The stupid plans voiced by the Democrat candidates were without a funding mechanism for what they proposed. "Tax the Rich" would mean stopping their investments in jobs and would likely force them to move their operations overseas. The result? No funding for these ridiculous socialistic proposals.

Dilly

Again with the lies Aunty Each and every plan I listened to had funding figured into the plan.

bigoak

Be the best--(Trump / coronavirus)---Physicians and the Center for Disease Control is praising Trump's handling of this pandemic. He was quick to stop flights out of China. Under his leadership the United States has responded to the virus better than any government in the world. It is obvious that Trump Derangement Syndrome is a mental illness and apparently causes mental blindness.

houdiniharry

Guess where the majority of virus cases are... New York (Democrats) and West Coast (Democrats) , guess who needs smacked upside the head TO LISTEN

aj0201

California has less cases confirmed per capita than Missouri. You really should try reading some info on this and how this works.

aj0201

All of the west coast has a lower per capita rate than Missouri This isn't hard to figure out.

houdiniharry

guess what.. i went out and did what i needed...I DIDN'T DIE

houdiniharry

OH.. and another ILLINOIS (Democrats)
