  1. The NBA had no other choice but to suspend the season.
    Get well, Tom Hanks and your wife!

    • AlexYounger Wrong
      People are panicking without the facts and that’s a problem. Hoarding useless masks an toilet paper. Shutting down events as well.
      I hate traveling but if I was prone to it I’d gladly go. Prices are cheap and as a middle aged guy with a healthy immune system I’d be fine.

    • James Davis I was sure you hated travel. Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts” Glad you didn’t refute any of Coronavirus’ properties. You could always move into a nursing home if travel isn’t your thing.

    • AlexYounger I travel around the country for my job. I meet plenty of people in my travels.
      I don’t need to impose my Americanes onto foreign lands. Especially if I can’t properly communicate with them.
      Not that I have anything against those that do.

    • Gordon Brownell | March 14, 2020 at 8:58 PM | Reply

      @James Davis so do you still think they are cowards? I mean not that there is a national emergency or anything!

    • Gordon Brownell Yes I do.
      Elected officials overreact more than anything. Especially since there is no penalty in overreacting but there is in under reacting.
      Just see how the media is going after Trump now. Or Bush. Or Obama. During there own issues.

  2. The health concern is just the start, wait until people lose their jobs and can’t pay their bills.

      Everyone should always watch for & stop violations of rights. #humanrights #humanrightsactivist #humanrightscampaign #censorship of #citizens is done by enemies of #freedom. When #media controllers disregard violations of citizen rights with #government #officials, #jails, #hospitals, & #lawenforcement… it is apparent that #criminal syndication has occurred. By not allowing citizen’s basic rights a #regime can subjugate a population. Whoever sees this needs to consider helping #Shreveport. Private messages are welcome for anyone who is willing to know more.

    Australia has Coronavirus testing but we still don’t ?

    • Dawn Adriana | March 12, 2020 at 1:39 AM | Reply

      And South Korea has drive-in testing. While the Wanker in Chief burbles nonsense.

    • Nevyn of OZ 1973 | March 12, 2020 at 1:51 AM | Reply

      Australia only has 10% of your population spread over 80% of your landmass and about 8% of your economy so we have no economies of scale shipping costs are ridiculously insane but no Aussie would ever deny another Aussie child of insulin just because they want their tax to go down plus we don’t buy F-35 that melts when they go supersonic

    • We also have healthcare. You have Donald

    • Beyond Batcoif | March 12, 2020 at 3:47 AM | Reply

      @Nevyn of OZ 1973 actually Australia did buy the F35…..

    • One reason is that we lack testing is because “the very stable genius” refused The WHO’s offer to provide test kits.

  5. Trump actually thought he could con the coronavirus into thinking that it wasn’t real, so that maybe it would just disappear.

    This corona virus is the very thing that will expose our country’s weaknesses. The weakness begans with Donald Trump’s division of our nation, and his total failure as a leader. Trump has bullied, and bluffed his way through everything so far, but now he is faced with a genuine disaster. I agree this needs to be kept bipartisan, and we all need to pull together at this time, however I have found one serious problem. I have family that are staunch Trump supporters, and will not watch any news because Trump has labelled it fake. They also take every stupid tweet, and comment of his to heart as if it were gospel. They listen to right wing propaganda that still says this is the Dems. trying to use a scare tactic to get Trump out of office. I still love these family members regardless of their foolish beliefs, and have tried to caution them about this virus. All I get in return is what Donald Trump or some right wing nut says, and some foolishness about it not being as bad as the flu. This came from one of Trump’s brain dead tweets, and they will not let go of it. It doesn’t matter what the medical experts say about this as long as Trump puts himself, and his reelection ahead of the health of all of his base. Most of my family that I am concerned about are in the target zone age with underlying health problems. This is THE MOST DANGEROUS PRESIDENT THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER HAD.

  7. If a person has any self respect, they would not be listening to impeached trump who is chronic liar.
    Your president does not have your back.
    In America, its impeached trump first, money second and citizens dont even rank on the care factor.

  8. One SOLUTION is to SHUT DOWN FOX NEWS.

    • ​@Aaron Stockmyer That definitely is a big problem, but trying to find those consistent credible news sources can be difficult.

    • Aaron Stockmyer. Fox News is a propaganda machine. It is CENSORING the truth. It is not the press. Actually it is registered as entertainment. Shutting it down is the opposite of censoring the press. Shutting it down will open the eyes of 40% of the US population.

    • Aaron Stockmyer | March 12, 2020 at 4:33 AM | Reply

      @FortCC the same can be said about all the other news outlets as well. Americans only root for their teams. Unfortunately whoever lies in support of one’s team is considered credible.

    • ole jørgensen | March 12, 2020 at 6:35 AM | Reply

      @Aaron Stockmyer Fox News is considered press?

    • Uncanny Valley | March 12, 2020 at 11:17 PM | Reply

      Blatantly lying to the American public is something that should be considered criminal, same as yelling fire in a crowded theater. While both sides lie Fox has no redeeming qualities. It incites hatred and racism at every opportunity, actively compromising the fabric of a functioning society. *BUT* nothing is ever going to change under this capitalist representative model, only with Direct Democracy does the American public stand any chance at not dying off wholesale

    Trump ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO RESIGN..ALONG WITH PENCE…ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

  10. We have a con man sitting in the oval office, who knows nothing about science and economics. The only thing he knows is how to deceive people.

    • EXACTLY Gerona

    • @Robert Alan shut your ignorant mouth fool !

    • @orlock20 sorry Trump is stupider than he used to be due to mental deterioration, but he was real dumb to begin with. Biden might not be as smart as he once was but he started a lot smarter than Trump and has a lot more experience in how government works. Unlike Trump, a reality TV self proclaimed “star” who was actually a failed businessman and a grifter. Trump voters elected Honey Boo Boo except uglier and dumber.

      Also Biden isn’t a sociopathic narcissist who thinks he knows better than the experts and won’t read anything.

    • Gerona Got At this point it looks like his Administration does know more about science and economics. Besides who was the last President that was a Scientist or an Economist? Most of them were lawyers.

    Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have COVID19. This is like the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 and billions of dollars was taken out of funding the CDC. Rome burns while Nero GOLFS.

      Fortunately for Tom and wife they’re not in third world America they’re in first World Australia which is probably why they’ve been tested

  12. Makes the response to Katrina look like a job well done.

  13. Cheryl R Leigh | March 12, 2020 at 2:12 AM | Reply

    Until such time as we are capable to be tested it is wise to assume we *ALL* have coronavirus.

    • @The Toasted Hippies Thank you for the kind words. I know what Brandon meant and didn’t take offense as he had no idea. But it will hit about every town in America and it will pass soon. I think the media is making it out more doomsday than it is though. People need common sense and the fear mongering the media puts out makes it worse as many people have no idea other than what the liberal media tells them and that’s dangerous.

    • The Toasted Hippies | March 13, 2020 at 5:14 PM | Reply

      @ED POWELL Every day is a mystery to me, Ed. I couldn’t tell you who the good guys or the bad guys are. I hear dubious information coming from all points on the political spectrum. I am an old guy, myself, and I wonder will this virus do me in. I’m not scared but I wonder.

    • @The Toasted Hippies Honestly, I’m 60 and weight lift 4-5 days a week as heavy as I can. If you notice 95% of those dying have pre existing conditions of something else. if you’re healthy and get the virus, you have a 2-3 week of pain in the butt flu and recover as that’s why they want you to stay home since there is no vaccine, but home recovery and time seem to outlast this and that’s the problem people wont understand. Let it run it’s course. Honestly, I’m not too worried if I did get it. Stay healthy and that helps. Most older people are so out of shape, no strength, and just sit around and do nothing which kills the muscles and hurts the immune system.

    • The Toasted Hippies | March 14, 2020 at 6:58 AM | Reply

      @ED POWELL My health is a forgone conclusion. I have metastatic prostate cancer. I also have some COPD. I’m 65. The rest of my life will be Dr. visits 2 or 3 times a month. It was a good party while it lasted. You be well, Ed. God Bless You!

    • @The Toasted Hippies God bless you as well, no matter your circumstances. But with God, His party never ends, just begins.

    I would take medical advice from Dr. Pepper or Dr. Dre before I’d listen to Trump. Get well Rudy Gobert, Tom Hanks and his wife. Stay safe everybody

    Run Forrest, Run!

  15. “None of us were so overtly cynical that we thought that this admin. wud screw this up….” What?…I was. It’s not being ‘cynical’. It’s called being realistic!

  16. When it’s time to lead Individual 1 lies. he is being outed as a fat, feckless, flaccid, fraud. Anyone else 2020.

    Banning flights from Europe is his solution? Brilliant. That’s like locking your door when the killer is already in your house.

      What are Crazy Bernie and senile Joe proposing Blink ?

    • Gordon Brownell | March 12, 2020 at 5:13 PM | Reply

      @John Naples no you need to do the math. Yes the EU had more reported cases. Why because they are testing. Even if you accept that we have sent it one million test then multiply the one thousand positives times 300. What’s the number. Let’s see what you get. Your logic is sad. Very very sad.

    • Now why on earth lock your doors? That’s tantamount to building a wall you you xenophobic rascist!

    • I don’t believe it’s about the virus, but the refugees. Europe is short over 230,000 doctors and millions of support staff. Italy is in such dire trouble that at least one story says their isn’t a staff to collect the dead.

    • As it turns out, yes it was a good idea.

  18. EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY KNOWS THE TRUMP HAS BEEN LYING ABOUT THE VIRUS. OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS IN WASHINGTON STATE CAN’T GET TESTED THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH TESTS, TO TEST THE PEOPLE WORKING AT THE EPICENTER OF THE VIRUS. CANADA AND SOUTH KOREA IN SINGAPORE IN CHINA ARE TESTING 10000 A DAY WE ARE TESTING 300 A DAY. SO OUR PRESIDENT LIES TO US ABOUT THE AVAILABILITY OF TEST KITS BECAUSE HE AND THE CDC TURN DOWN THE OFFER OF WORKING TESTS FROM THE WHO. BLATENT MEDICAL MALPRACTICE FROM THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF THEN HE HAD THE NERVE TO BLAME IT ON OBAMA. WHAT A FARCE

    • Watch Fox news instead…the US has a abundant amount of tests.

    • @Gary didn’t anybody tell you, FOX NEWS IS PROPAGANDA, EVERYBODY KNOWS THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE ASKED FOR TESTS AND CAN’T GET THEM. THAT’S A FACT JACK.YOU’VE GOT TO JUMP THROUGH A BUNCH OF HOOPS AND THEN THERE’S NOT THE PROCESSING FOR THE TEST ONCE IT’S TAKEN SO IT’S USELESS.LOOK ON THE CDC WEBSITE AND SEE HOW MANY TESTS HAVE BEEN DONE UNITED STATES LESS THAN 10,000 SOUTH KOREA 10000 EVERYDAY AND THEY’RE NOT NEARLY THE SIZE OF THE UNITED STATES CANADA HAS TESTED 400,000 AND WE HAVEN’T TESTED 10
      DON’T WATCH FOX NEWS IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON IT’S JUST THE PRESIDENT’S FAN CLUB OVER THERE.

  19. The most important travel ban on the planet would be a ban that would prevent the untested American populace from traveling anywhere.

  20. Richard Barber | March 12, 2020 at 8:26 AM | Reply

    The US Government refused to allow purchase of tests readily available from foreign companies, so that the CDC and Big Pharma could take forever to produce their own and sell them. Start looking for exactly which Pharma companies get the contract, and which GOP congressmen they’ve been big doners to…….
