Georgia - Kemp - no road test to get drivers license

BONUS! No road experience needed to get drivers license
Georgia is definitely in the race to try any and everything during the pandemic, aren’t they?!

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp revealed a new executive order on Thursday that gives teenagers a pass on needing a formal driving test in order to receive their driver’s license. Yep, they won’t even have to take a road test. How will they get the approval for a license? Their parents have to sign off on it.

Under Governor Kemp's latest executive order, teens still have to fulfill all driving requirements, but the behind the wheel road test has been suspended. While the Department of Driver Services practices social distancing during this pandemic, it's impossible for an employee to conduct a road test in the same vehicle with an applicant and still keep their distance.

Trump was right about something! We HAVE reached 60,000!

Irish Times
April 10, 2020 —- let’s put a pin in that for a second.

US president Donald Trump predicted that the death toll from coronavirus in the United States could reach 60,000


Mr Trump was speaking as the death toll in the US from coronavirus reached 18,000


April 10th was 19 days ago


Now we're talking! "Operation Warp Speed"

Project targets enough doses for most Americans by January
Fauci has said vaccine will take 12 to 18 months to develop

The Trump administration is organizing a Manhattan Project-style effort to drastically cut the time needed to develop a coronavirus vaccine, with a goal of making enough doses for most Americans by year’s end.

Called “Operation Warp Speed,” the program will pull together private pharmaceutical companies, government agencies and the military to try to cut the development time for a vaccine by as much as eight months, according to two people familiar with the matter.

As part of the arrangement, taxpayers will shoulder much of the financial risk that vaccine candidates may fail, instead of drug companies.

The project will cost billions of dollars, one of the people said. And it will almost certainly result in significant waste by making inoculations at scale before knowing if they’ll be safe and effective -- meaning that vaccines that fail will be useless. But it could mean having doses of vaccine available for the American public by the end of this year, instead of by next summer.

IOWA - called back to work and no show? You QUIT. No Unemployment

Coronavirus in Iowa: State tells workers to return to jobs or lose their benefits
Iowa is warning furloughed workers that they will lose their unemployment benefits if they refuse to return when their employer calls them back to work.

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/money/business/2020/04/28/coronavirus-iowa-state-tells-workers-return-jobs-lose-benefits/3039117001/

Deputy director, Ryan West, says you won’t continue getting unemployment if you are called back to work. He says if your employer had to lay you off and they are calling you back, you should be able to go back to work.

West says if you do not go back to work, it will be considered a “voluntary quit,” and your unemployment will be suspended. There are some exceptions, including a diagnosis of COVID-19 that prevents you from working.

West says every case will be different and the individual issues will dictate what happens. But, he says if someone has a note from a doctor that says you should be out then that would allow you to stay home.

Sweden - not so great

More data on Sweden and their mistake.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/28/europe/sweden-coronavirus-lockdown-strategy-intl/index.html

Lots of comparisons here but these two graphics really sum it up






Last question at WH event - 6 weeks..more deaths than Vietnam..re-election?

I didn’t recognize the reporter.

Paraphrased but pretty close:
The question was “Should a President who sees more deaths in 6 weeks as in all of the Vietnam War be re-elected?”

Trump said yes he should be re-elected.

*LAUGH OF THE DAY* Life of Brian - Trump virus - Obama gif

Moves fast but so spot on.
