He’ll fold to the Democrats

Democrats in the Tennessee Senate asked Gov. Bill Lee to issue a statewide shelter-in-place order Monday to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

In a letter sent to Lee’s office, the Tennessee Senate Democratic Caucus said that the “surge of coronavirus cases in our state has and will continue to put our doctors, nurses, and caregivers under great strain and threatens to thrust our medical system and healthcare supply chain toward a crisis point.”

That measure is largely a feel-good effort anyways. The counties that have the greatest number of cases (Davidson, being the main one) and the neighboring counties already have deserted streets. Nothing’s open.
I went down to Gallatin in Sumner County last week to take my boots down to be re-soled and the place was nearly a ghost town. Damn near all the small businesses, including the cobbler, were already closed and the traffic was almost non-existent.
Doctors are taking precautions as well and they’re doing it on their own. We don’t have a single case of the beervirus here in Macon County, but when Lisa called Lady Doc for an appointment to get her meds refilled, they told her they’ll do it over a video call instead of having her come in.

    It’d be worthwhile for you and the wife to check out the source of your meds. Awful lotta drugs are the product of the Chinese pharma industry since the Clintons and their cohort gave it all away to make a few bucks.

    Being a diabetic taking care of my feet is very important. (It makes me “high risk” for most anything actually.) My primary care doctor had a shit fit on the hospital’s podiatry clinic yesterday. They tried telling her it would be the end of this year/beginning of next year before they’d consider seeing me about my ingrown toenail. My primary doctor told them that I’m diabetic and it’s urgent for them to make me an appointment. She says they pretty much told her to let me suffer and to F off. Her response was they haven’t heard the last of her.

      Diabetic here too Padawan and a retired nurse. Can you say malpractice? A whole lot of that shit is gonna hit the rotator when we finally see this was all a scam with the beer juice virus and hospital, clinic and county, state health departments were complicit in it.

    Seems to me, most of the efforts are “feel-good”. They say younger people can be a carrier of the virus, yet show no symptoms. This is largely the group that is putting your to-go food orders together. I’m in the old fart group that this is deadly to and I still say let’s get back to normal. There is no reason to destroy ourselves and our children financially by taking Draconian measures that are not proven to work. I say if YOU are worried, then stay YOUR ass at home.

Play nice.
