They are all PEOPLE. They are of the nationality of the country they live in. Outside of that being "color blind" has its advantages. Metaphorically speaking.

Trump administration balks at invoking the NPA in order to take over industry and conduct a war against this virus.

In Canada the Prime Minister needs to invoke the War Measures Act and take complete control of industry.

We are in a state of denial over this.

Now..if you heard Trump's pollyanna ish assessment...........one finds a big gap between the reality and what he spins.

Just now listening to a US economist on the BBC. He expects to see unemployment rise to 20 million in the coming weeks. An unprecedented 12% unemployment rate.

BBC reporting tonight that hospitals are on the brink in many areas of Britain. The military is busy adapting empty buildings and setting up tent cities to accommodate the coming overflow. And they are all desperately in need of protective items. I sure hope I'm not seeing our country's future.

Does that equal 88% employment ? If it does , that is not bad numbers when everything is closed .

He added that where the unemployment rate sits now at around 5 million people is what it was during the peak of the financial crisis.

This is a really good article, OB and details where the job losses are happening and the staggering rise in numbers. The article was published on the 19th, and their forecast rise in numbers of the unemployed has proved true.

I think that might change drastically in the next little while - third world countries might start overtaking the U.S. as they become more adept at testing for it.

The more tests the more cases. Stop testing and it'll go away.

You are most welcome. I'm well thank you. I'm really an old hand at this self-isolation business being very much of a social hermit as it were. I have my wee pooch Rowan and my nutso cat Miri, for company. Talk on the phone each day with friends and neighbors. Lots of good books to read. So, yeah................it's all good here.



I wish you well through this trying time, Ocean.

I thought it was 24% in the Great Depression? 12% is therefore not unprecedented. Not good but not unprecedented.
