  1. US retailers face the worst season in over 30 years due to the lack of a stimulus package for the people. No money = No spending. Blame the politicians.

    • @snowflake killer : You listen to too much RW media. The reason cities were in the bill is because Trump, in all his stupidity, told cities that they were on their own to fight COVID. Cities don’t have the option of running a deficit, so they were/are looking at laying off police, firefighters, teachers, and all other government services workers. Most of the money, by far, was for individuals and small businesses. The Republicans’ idea, as is predictable, is to approach the stimulus like they approach the budget – trickle on – by giving the lion’s share to big corporations in the false belief that the money will somehow make its way down to everyone else.

    • My previous reply is intended for Bob Evans, not snowflake killer. Apologies for the mix up.

    • @Trumpocalypse You guys don’t feed the troll. It only makes it talk more. Just leave it to go back to it’s sad life.

    • I’d blame the politicians for the blunt lockdowns causing revenue losses, rather than lack of a stimulus. We can remain open safely, but politicians aren’t interested in giving up their emergency powers.

    • @Michael Kahn do you understand how ridiculous you sound? do you understand how much these people DONT want to shut down their states and localities? state and local governments DEPEND on tax revenue to function and employ all the essential employees who keep the day to day life functioning in society. NO politician WANTS to shut down ANYTHING ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD but you cant fight a public health crises with economic policy..

    Look, it’s Kayleigh McEnany’s good twin.

  4. Sadly, “personal responsibility” is no match for Trump s narcissism or american selfishness

  5. Thank you Nurse Lacie! 🙌👏🙏
    These people are literally on the front lines of a war. A war far more deadly than the war in Afghanistan which has been going on for 19 years, and we’ve had 20,000 casualties in that time.
    Compared to 12 million cases, 260,000 deaths from the Corona in just 8 months.

    Let’s talk. The US has passed some devastating milestones – nearly 200,000 COVID-19 infections a day and 257,000 deaths. For many months some Americans have resisted wearing protective masks because they, “Take away freedom.” Is this really about taking away freedoms?
    We are a county founded on the compassionate rule of law. We have seat belt laws and second-hand smoke laws. These are just two small examples of laws enacted to protect us when we cannot protect ourselves and each other. When functioning properly our representatives in government have the ability, as defined by constitutions, charters, etc., to do those things we cannot do all by ourselves. This may include building highways, providing K-12 education and let’s not forget protecting us from deadly forest fires, hurricanes and our national defense. Governors, legislators and judges, in addition to the media, are working as best as they can, as quickly as they can and with the best available public health information to keep all of us safe; individually we do not have the collective expertise, human and financial resources to manage these challenges. If they need to do this legally by decree, executive order or other provisions allowed them during emergencies then they are doing their jobs.
    Although most people are doing the best they can to save lives there are some powerful few who are literally killing people. Take Trump and his super spreader events. A Stanford University study found his rallies have killed 700 people and infected 30,000. Columbia University published a study recently on how 130,000-210,000 lives could have been saved if the Trump administration and his devotees had not politicized science a pandemic that has infected over 53 million and killed 1,300,000 world-wide – so far. Approximately 40% of the infected are asymptomatic and never know they may be spreading COVID according to the CDC.
    There is good news. The US government may start distributing a vaccine by the end of the year. It will go to the most vulnerable populations first including first responders. It does take weeks after the first inoculation for the vaccine to take full effect and more than one booster shot may be necessary. No one knows the duration of immunity for anyone who has recovered from COVID or from any particular vaccine. Pfizer vaccine showed 90% immunity but only for seven days. More needs to be understood. Perhaps the singular greatest problem with regard to vaccines is that too many people have been dissuaded from even getting vaccinated at all. If that is the case, it will prolong moving forward precipitously. It is possible we may be wearing masks well through 2021. Our best line of defense remains masks, social distancing, etc. By taking these basic precautions the University of Washington projects we can save over 65,000 lives by March 2021. Remember, this virus is about 8X deadlier than the 2019 flu and is the third leading cause of death in the US only behind heart disease and cancer. Please fact-check this information yourself. Just one idea – A national public service announcement program on the proper fit and use of masks, hand washing (20 seconds), social distancing, etc. Facing the truth is empowering, freeing. The sooner the more people accept reality, the sooner we can recover together as a country – grieve those we have loved and lost – and collectively address other urgent concerns.
    One last thing – we are fortunate. Do the people resisting wearing a mask really have no understanding of what is true loss of your freedoms? Have we learned nothing from history: slavery, disenfranchisement, imprisonment in jails, ghettos and concentration camps, inscription into armies, forced marriage, starvation… Over 85,000 children (under five) in Yemen have died since 2015 directly because of US foreign policy. Currently, millions more Yemen children, women and men face starvation but we can still save them by providing immediate emergency assistance with our International allies. We just have to care enough about their freedom, their literal right to life. I’d like to believe we are capable of understanding false equivalences of facial coverings and the right to life, freedom from extreme suffering. This may not be what we have expected but it is nothing new, not really. And we each have superpowers – our infinite capacity for creative adaptation and a little thing called love. – Please feel free to share this post. Take care, stay safe out there and thank you.

  7. I live in Nebraska, NE-D2. We flipped blue for 1EC vote. Trust me when I say + people here aren’t taking it seriously. Schools are open, sports are going. Mask are optional. When you bring up numbers, our neighbors refute it saying “hoW many of those are ACTUAL Covid beds” when they all are. It’s sad, tragic, and crazy. Our rural areas are in deep crap. They don’t even know it yet

  8. There was an old saying during the Black Plague; “People ate lunch with their friends and family and had dinner with their ancestors.” In today’s Covid 19 pandemic, the saying could be updated to; “People had celebrated Thanksgiving with their friends and family and had Christmas with their ancestors.”

  9. Tough lady.
    Nurses are as tough as they come.

  10. Totally off subject, but they look like they could be sisters.

  11. Kick covid deniers out of the hospital and give their beds to someone more deserving. Let the local repugnicans care for them. If you purposely burn down your house, you’re not covered by insurance. Why is this different?

  12. this sure does bring it all into focus.

  13. This is Republican unstated herd immunity policies coming home to roost. 300,000 COVID cases in just over 2 days you may have another 100,000 deaths before New Years’. All the leadership can do is file redundant useless lawsuits, tweet, and golf.

  14. Repugnicans are all about personal responsibility, I keep hearing. They should have no problem with signing a insurance waiver, relinquishing medical treatment for them and their families if they get infected with covid. That way they can be free to associate with who they want.

    This is a really good hospital. Like a lot of the less populated areas of the country the local hospitals are really small. They feed into the one at Omaha but compared to other large cities and as cities goes omaha isn’t very large they do not have the capacity other cities have but this is an excellent hospital.

  16. Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota should be just one State. Complete waste of government resources.

    News lady needs COFFEE.

  18. The craziest thing about this pandemic is that the US has learnt nothing after 9 months.
    WHO simple 3 point plan: Social distance, wash your hands and wear a mask.
    US Covid = 263,298+ Taiwan = 7 (x37,614) New Zealand = 25 (x10,532) China = 4,634 (x56).
    Warp speed? 56 times more deaths than China. Trump is to blame but Americans allow it to continue. Idiots!

    If i’m dying, I want her to be my nurse.

  20. Off topic, but she is gorgeous. Just sayin’.
