Dare county can do it now legally since the governor made it statewide. SC told Myrtle beach and Folly Beach the same thing.

Funnier thing dog - what they were doing in RI was illegal and has stopped. What Dare County was doing, same...I understand keeping fleeing, possibly infected city dwellers out of small rural areas. Do it with a short term rental ban like we have here - but you can't keep people out if they own property there (or here).

Funny thing homie there are two counties on the coast that will not let you in unless you are a resident. Funny thing homie the governor of Rhode Island has cops stopping a New York tag at the state line and sending them back. The reason Trump wanted to lock them in was to stop the spread like you have been wanting. But your liberal hate for Trump wont let you past doing what is best.

There was nothing ridiculous about stoping interstate travel outside of an outbreak area. Like I said before, it doesn't matter what Trump tries to do, you snowflake liberals will complain. And FL can very much cut off their borders and not allow people back in during a state of emergency. It happens all the time during natural disasters. If y'all actually want this to stop, interstate travel should have been stopped 2 weeks ago at least.

That's good to know Tabs. I've been reading how many have been tested state by state and NC has a higher testing rate than most of our neighboring states.


Posted 12:46 pm, 03/29/2020

According to AppHealth several in Ashe have been tested and came back negative. They have been testing here for weeks.

You can't believe everything you hear from the media. If little ole Ashe County could get tests I'm sure they are more readily available than the media lets on.

Oh yeah, and like pretty much everything else Trump does, this crazy proposal is at least a few weeks too late! Sorry Florida...you cannot stop people who own property there from coming.

That said, I am glad to see Ashe officials being proactive in putting the short term rental business down for now. Obviously a giant influx of sick people trying to escape the cities or even the well ones thinking they might ride it out here could easily overwhelm our small hospital. I believe we have as many as 3 ventilators here.

I'm wondering how many people in Ashe have been tested or if tests are even readily available here at this late date. I'm betting few, if any have been tested.

Fauchi thankfully talked him out of such a ridiculous notion. They are already quarentined in NY, NJ, CT. What Trump was considering was locking them in and letting the virus rip? Who knows he's just so inarticulate?? Plus you don't pre-announce such a step, people who want to NYC leave will just drag the virus out with them as they flee right before the lockdown begins.


Posted 6:53 pm, 03/28/2020

Trump wants to quarantine the entire state of NY, NJ , and FL but the liberal governors are fighting him tooth and nail. FL said bring it on. He might want to look at Louisiana.

Fins he "initiated" but then piddled around for a week before actually USING the DPA. That's what I'm saying - invoke the power and then why not get these ventilators rolling off the production line quicker?

He finally pulled the trigger yesterday - again, so sloooow with governors begging for help. Why's that?


Posted 8:56 pm, 03/27/2020

Homie, just what ventilators do you want to buy? There are not warehouses full of these things sitting around. That's why Trump had to initiate the Defense Production Act


Posted 6:37 pm, 03/27/2020

GM is fixing to find out about Trumps new powers.


Posted 6:35 pm, 03/27/2020

This is nothing more than a impeachment scam. Why are y'all drinking the Kool-Aid?


Posted 1:12 pm, 03/27/2020

Halfway, uneven, state-by-state efforts and rules aren't going to work for this.

Trump needs to shut it all down - immediately! It's probably going to take a few months, not weeks but if everyone stays home and plays by the rules, the doctors and scientists tell us it will vanquish this disease.

And for Gods sake Mr. President - buy the **** ventilators and stop putting Jared in charge of important things!

Billy, I support closing everything down for a few weeks and getting this over with instead of dragging it out and having people panic for months. A few weeks, and the economy will recover quickly.


Posted 8:41 pm, 03/26/2020

Let me send you to New york and see if you have to balls to lick a patients hand billy boob.


Posted 8:24 pm, 03/26/2020

You Trumpzis were downplaying this Soros'd conspiracy last week. Now you support closing the county. Yikes.


Posted 7:30 pm, 03/26/2020

Another lie from homie


Posted 7:29 pm, 03/26/2020

I'm very sober and catching up on Hannity episodes. Just repeating his line.


Posted 7:27 pm, 03/26/2020

Sober up billy boob.
