Trump is making it look like he (the WH) is under siege with this military build up.

He is adding soldiers and fencing for another photo-op. He is spinning this to make himself look like a victim.

Wouldn't vote by mail have a negative impact on voter suppression?

All of those dastardly plans of poll watchers (intimidators) and closed polling places would be for naught.

OSHA requires that employers provide a safe workplace. Has this been vacated?

The OSHA general duty clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, requires that each employer furnish to each of its employees a workplace that is free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm.

From OSHA.gov/workers/

Under federal law, you are entitled to a safe workplace. Your employer must provide a workplace free of known health and safety hazards. If you have concerns, you have the right to speak up about them without fear of retaliation. You also have the right to:

Be trained in a language you understand
Work on machines that are safe
Be provided required safety gear, such as gloves or a harness and lifeline for falls
Be protected from toxic chemicals
Request an OSHA inspection, and speak to the inspector
Report an injury or illness, and get copies of your medical records
See copies of the workplace injury and illness log
Review records of work-related injuries and illnesses
Get copies of test results done to find hazards in the workplace

This is vegetable planting time. Farmers need your voice.

While the country is worried about protecting our population from the Coronavirus, there is another looming problem – the future of our vegetable supply.

A good friend owns a small fertilizer company. This is as close to the bottom of our country’s food chain as you can get. Orders for fertilizer are not coming in from the farmers in the southeast. The farmers are in decision mode as to whether to plant this spring. Will there be processing of vegetable crops? Will there be workers to pick? Are traditional buyers still viable? The economic forecast is uncertain and markets have shifted creating a possible instability.

Restaurants have scaled back or closed but people are now cooking more than ever before. But, will there be food to cook later this year? Not if crops are not planted. Farmers are making these decisions NOW so that we can have food in three to six months. Congress needs to focus immediately on the agricultural industry so that we have food flowing to our grocery stores. Please contact your state and national representatives to act now to ensure our food supply.

Any official guidance on what a suspected infected person should do? Who to call?

ER and doctor's office can be contaminated. Haven't heard anything about this.

The hearts made my weekend. Thank you for that special feeling. We all need it.

Thank you for the mystery heart! Quite the surprise!

Graham's quote is downright insightful "...he did nothing wrong in his mind."

“All I can do is tell you is that from the president’s point of view, he did nothing wrong in his mind,” Graham said.

Are marches being organized and scheduled? How do we find out? nt

He wasn't slurring. He was talking in cursive.

Really though, were his eyes dilated again? Is he like this on the golf course?
