Locked Down Blue vs. Re-opened Red States

2020 May 16
by bc3b

American people are more divided than at any time since the Civil War (War Between the States for Mullet, KH and the Texans). We see it in so many ways. According to Gallup, 69% of Democrats trust the media while only 15% of Republicans do.

It would be foolish to believe there would be any less of a divide in determining how to handle the coronavirus pandemic. Democrats overwhelmingly want to see lockdowns continue (supposedly to save lives) while the majority of Republicans want the economy reopened.

Beauty salons and barber shops (businesses where social distancing is impossible have reopened in 26 states, 22 of which have Republican governors. Georgia was one of the first to re-open and it is experiencing a reduced number of coronavirus confirmed cases and deaths. Apparently there aren’t any major problems in the other states that have reopened or CNN would be covering it 24/7.

Let’s take a closer look at the divide:

The novel coronavirus currently working its way through America isn’t political, we’ve been told repeatedly, and doesn’t discriminate between Democrats or Republicans. This much is true. But after two months of social distancing and government mandated stay-at-home orders, Americans are increasingly viewing the pandemic, and our leaders’ response to it, through a partisan lens.

The political divide among the public is stark. According to a CBS News/YouGov poll released Thursday, 88% of Democrats believe the top priority of America is to “stay home, slow virus spread.” Only 12% said the top priority should be “back to work, get economy going.” Sixty-two percent of Republicans, on the other hand, favored getting the economy going as the top priority, while 38% felt staying at home is the top priority. Put another way, the net difference between Democrats and Republicans on what the top priority of the country should be is 50 percentage points.

Not surprisingly, these partisan differences show up when voters are asked about the re-opening of specific places and institutions. In a survey released earlier this week from The Economist/YouGov, Republicans were roughly four times more supportive than Democrats of “definitely” re-opening parks and schools, five times more in favor of re-opening restaurants and beaches, and nearly seven times more in favor of re-opening churches.

Looking forward, Democrats have a much more pessimistic view about when the economy can safely be allowed to get back up to full steam. Sixty-eight percent of Democrats said it would take “several months” or “about a year or longer” before it would be safe to fully re-open the economy nationally. Only half that number of Republicans (34%) said the same, while a roughly equal number of Republicans (31%) said it will be safe to fully re-open the economy nationwide in “about two weeks” or “a month or so.”

Yesterday (Friday actually), in an interview with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo, President Trump touched on this debate, saying that he felt the push to keep the country locked down was “a political thing.”

He continued, “You know, if it was up to some people, ‘Let’s keep it closed for a long time … and watch the United States go down the tubes.’ Not gonna happen. Never gonna happen on my watch.”

The day before, Nancy Pelosi appeared on “Morning Joe” where she said she supported the decision by local authorities to extend the stay-at-home order in Los Angeles County by three months, and also the decision by the California State University system to cancel all in-person classes this fall.

Less than six months from the 2020 election, the political battle lines have been drawn. Donald Trump and many Republican governors are leading the “re-open right” while the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and many Democratic governors are part of the “lockdown left.” The latter group is emphasizing public health and safety, while the former is increasingly focused on America’s economic health.

    From the previous post:

    Justrand:

    THIS leads the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “Dr.” Ferrer’s bio describes her as “philanthropic strategist, public health director, educational leader, researcher, and community advocate”
    She is NOT a medical doctor nor scientist…yet she leads the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and is at the core of their DEMAND (under penalty of law) that all Angelinos remain LCOKED DOWN for “at least 3 more months”.
    This picture is the most flattering one I could find of her…no kidding. Apparently if Angelinos follow her demands they can be as, um, “healthy” as her.

    Several healthy states on the left coast remain shut down even though their confirmed cases are relatively low. Bolded states have reopened:
    Here are the number of deaths per million residents from some of the worst states, the left coast and states where BJGers reside:
    New York: 1,417.4
    New Jersey: 1,155,1
    Michigan: 488.6
    Georgia: 150.5
    Ohio: 137.7

    Washington: 133.4
    Arizona: 93.3
    California: 81.4
    North Carolina: 64.5
    Texas: 46.2
    Oregon: 32.5
    Wyoming: 12.1
    Hawaii: 12.0

    The count of states that has re-opened is 28 of which 22 have Republican governors. You can see that a number of blue states have favorable death per million residents rates. You have to question whether it’s a philosophical thing (being more cautious) or the Democratic governors want to do their part to tank the economy.

    It’s becoming clear: deaths are bad. But more cases means more survivors with antibodies and that makes things safer for us all. Someone who’s had the infection and got better can’t be reinfected and won’t infect others.
    Dead = bad.
    Infected/survived = good.

    Sure, maybe Biden is gonna win (*rolls eyes*).

    But really, Dems have been attacking the low and middle class with fierce determination.
    The hairdresser in TX. Nursing home deaths.
    Crippling the economy. Even in entire counties where there are 0 cases and 0 deaths.
    And, maybe, ObamaGate will get traction.
    Our “bad Prop13” went down to defeat in the March primary, even though ALL Dems, many celebs and half the Repubs came out in favor. Plus CA-25 special election was such a big win, Dems gave up on cheating.
    To get to the point: could this be a wave election?

    Here’s the latest outrage.
    “Lindsey Graham reopened her hair salon to feed her kids and that fascist bint in OR gubnuh Brown had OSHA show up and fine her $14,000 and sent the kid coppers in to check on her runts while she was at work.”

    John McLaughlin told Secrets, “They play to a small active, deranged, anti-Trump base for clicks on the internet. That’s not journalism. In the process, they disregard facts and destroy their own credibility. The establishment media is no longer an independent, nonpartisan check and balance on both major parties. Instead, they are an extension of the liberal Democratic Party.”

    Trump is a point short of the magic 50 to lock a win in November if you believe in historical norms.

    Sorry, this is long. It was posted to my NextDoor neighborhood chat. It got rave reviews for about 36 hours, then the Army of Karens came out in full force LOL.
    It’s a pretty nice summary, IMO. From a Facebook post by a lady in a small town of Georgia according to a fellow on ND who went looking for where it came from.

    I am seeing so much anxiety about resuming business, and so much anger about continued regulations. People are feeling the need to catapult to one side or the other, then fight the opposition.

    Here’s my perspective, from a mainstream medical model. I think a lot of folks have fallen into the idea that social distancing was meant to stop the viral spread. It wasn’t-it was meant to SLOW it while we put medical infrastructure in place. It has worked. We have, in most parts, not been overwhelmed like we likely would have been without protective measures. In the meantime, our testing procedures have gotten better. We’ve increased our ventilator count. We’ve gotten a little better handle on PPE supply chains, and many have helped by making masks and gowns. It’s not perfect, but it’s much better than it was seven weeks ago.

    A vaccine is a long way off and not everyone will choose to get it. That is their choice. At some point, people have to be systematically exposed to begin the building of (hopeful) herd immunity. We will likely begin to experience a real increase in cases after reopening. Ideally, that exposure is controlled and calculated, in phases, to allow our medical community to respond adequately, and reduce the number of severe or fatal cases. That’s where we are.

    Whether you feel like opening is too soon, or not soon enough, we were never going to social distance this thing into nonexistence. You now need to proceed as your health, wallet, and conscience allow.

    If you are medically vulnerable, you do not need to be a part of what is about to happen. Stay home if you can. If you’re not, or if your financial vulnerability trumps your health concerns, you need to proceed in ways that continue to protect yourself, and the elderly and medically vulnerable around you.

    All of us need to calm down. Quit telling people who are financially struggling that they don’t care about human lives. Quit telling people who are truly at risk of dying from this virus that they are cowering in fear. Remember that until you’ve walked in someone else’s shoes, you should probably be careful in your judgements and subsequent harsh words.

    We don’t HAVE to choose an either/or proposition and fight. We could choose other ways to be. Examples include but are not limited to:

    “I think this may be too soon, so I will continue to shelter myself, and pray/make masks/ check on those who can’t.”

    “I really need to go back to work, so I will do so, but I will be careful and try to protect myself, my family, and those around me with healthy strategies.”

    See how those positions allow each of us to do what we need to, and also respect those who are choosing differently?

    One thing that allows us to do this is humility. I can acknowledge that I am not an epidemiologist/economist/whatever, that I am making decisions based on my understanding of complex subjects and my own personal health and financial situation, that I am not all knowing, always right, and an expert in all fields, and that each person around me is doing their best too. We can make different choices and still be a supportive community. We can learn and evolve in our understanding of these issues.

    Give one another the benefit of the doubt and the compassion of compromise.

    Much love and prayers for everyone in making their own personal decision.

    Here are 3 “must read” articles for every honest, American citizen to read.

    This one documents how the Coronavirus outbreak is essentially over except for nursing homes where, depending on the state, nearly 40-80% of ALL CORONA deaths have occurred:

    https://www.conservativereview.com/news/horowitz-simple-arithmetic-demonstrates-epidemic-outside-nursing-homes-essentially/

    This one shows that for people under 60 your risk of death from Coronavirus is essentially as statistically close to ZERO PERCENT as humanly possible. Even those in the 80’s and 90’s have a 93-95% chance of survival even with other medical issues:

    https://www.conservativereview.com/news/horowitz-one-chart-exposes-lie-behind-universal-lockdowns/

    And this article shows how we destroyed our way of life, freedoms & Constitutional rights, and will likely have tens of millions of needless deaths in the near future because of our stupid, simple-minded, fear-innduced, and ideologically driven rush to “lockdown” the world for a minor illness:

    https://www.conservativereview.com/news/horowitz-bad-medicine-devastating-shocking-effects-covid-19-lockdown/

    What went on is nothing less than CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE (to be nice & charitable about it) that the political class, the MSM and the so-called “public health” experts are complicit in.

    There should be Nurenberg-style Coronavirus criminal trials in the near future if the world is at all just especially for those politicians & medical autocrats who ordered infected people to be moved into nursing homes – that was a death sentence for thousands!

    A couple of old data processing stories:

    When I was in the Air Force the guys in the computer section couldn’t stand their NCO so they coded him as a volunteer for Greenland on a punch card and he got the assignment.

    I worked at NCR when they were one of IBM’s “little sisters.” There was a gorgeous blonde with a body that wouldn’t stop, and a brain wouldn’t start. Her job was to push a cart with magnetic disks around the marketing headquarters. The highlight of the day was when she pushed her little cart past my cube.

    https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/373821/
    This New York Times map could be misinterpreted merely as travel, but as the article notes, it’s based on the “56,000 mail-forwarding requests from New York City” received by the United States Post Office in March, “more than double the monthly average. In April, the number of requests went up to 81,000, twice the number from a year earlier. Sixty percent of those new requests were for destinations outside the city.”

    38 – Thing is with everyone covering for them they don’t really need to do anything right, all they have to do is avoid complete disasters that can’t be overlooked or brushed aside.

    New MLB rules…. fuck it, on second thought, if you’re gonna screw with it that much than just cancel the season – or maybe the sport entirely if they’re gonna act like children (especially the players). I figured they could squeeze in half a season, WITH fan attendance, if they’re so paranoid they can’t allow fan in, and all the rest of that long list of bs – what is the point (beyond everyone trying to salvage their tv contracts,etc).

    As for the players whining – overall I’ll say what I’ve said since the 94 walkout\strike a another some years later … fuck’em. Plenty of hungry minor league players willing to replace them. I was hoping the season would come back not because of them but because of all the second and third order jobs involved – but if the players and owners gonna be babies then to hell with it.

    All this just strikes me as stupid.

    “Life Is a Gift from God. We hold from God the gift which includes all others. This gift is life — physical, intellectual, and moral life. But life cannot maintain itself alone. The Creator of life has entrusted us with the responsibility of preserving, developing, and perfecting it. In order that we may accomplish this, He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By the application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. This process is necessary in order that life may run its appointed course. Life, faculties, production–in other words, individuality, liberty, property — this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”

    Florida got the message and implemented a model response. Despite its vast enclaves of long-term care homes, it reported ­under 750 deaths in them, or slightly more than one for each of its 615 facilities.

    The striking contrast between Florida on one hand and New York and New Jersey on the other can be traced largely to policy decisions by their governors. Gov. ­Andrew Cuomo of New York and Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey issued almost identical orders in late March requiring nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients being discharged from hospitals. The orders barred the homes from even asking if the patients had the virus, lest they be discriminated against.

    Apparently my county intends to be in Shutdown until … forever.

    Seen on the Silicon Valley Assoc of Republican Women
    “While Gov Newsom’s public health director sets the parameters for the state lockdown, it is up to the local counties to implement.
    Here in Santa Clara County, Dr. Sara Cody calls the shots and she is not going to lift restrictions until there is a vaccine for Covid-19.”

    For the family of corona viruses (COVID, common cold, SARS, …) how many vaccines have been found in the entire history of the world?

    We should ALL cooperate fully with “Contact Tracers”. I keep a few responses in my head in case I am ever “asked” (read: “required”) to provide my information to one:

    Ozzie and Harriett Nelson
    1822 Camino Palmero Street
    Los Angeles, CA

    Fred and Wilma Flintstone
    Bedrock, USA

    George and Jane Jetson
    Orbit City

    Mr. & Mrs. M. Mouse
    Orlando, FL

    and so on…of course, if they ask for I.D. I will skip the above responses and simply tell them to FU@K OFF.

    New Jersey’s governor was a RINO. It’s now Phil Murphy, a far-left Democrat.

    But…but…I have been assured that once guns were banned there would be NO MORE CRIME. Our Democrat Overlords told us the criminals would lay down their weapons and respect signs reading “Gun Free Zone”. Golly, I just don’t know what to think now?!?

    KH #53 –

    To illustrate how baseball has changed: Al Kaline (Mr. Tiger), who died last month, once turned down a $100,000 contract. He told the team, “I’m not worth $100,000” and ended up signing for $90,000. A Hall of Famer and considered one of the best fielding outfielders of all time, all Al Kaline wanted to do in life was play right field for the Tigers. A native of Baltimore, he stayed in the Detroit area after retiring (probably because we have such nice winters). Different era; different type players.

    The New Jersey Governor has called in a SWAT Team to take down a gym that opened up in defiance of the Governor!

    Well, since there is apparently no more crime in New Jersey, I guess the SWAT Teams have nothing else to do.

    In fact, across the country I imagine the training “Combat Towns” that used to simulate Jihadis taking over towns, and kidnappers holding hostages, are now being re-configured to let SWAT Teams simulate taking down rouge hair-stylists, barbers and gym owners.

    New Jersey’s Phil Murphy is just trying to keep pace with the other Democratic governors. Gretchen Whitmer stripped a barber of his license. Oregon’s Kate Brown not only fined a salon owner $14,000 but also had the state’s Child Protective Services agency investigate her.

    54 – It’s all just one huge naked power grab.
    60 – Isn’t the league minimum now like 400k?
    62 – Was that tha Atilis gym? predictable attempt.
    64 – Tables aren’t turned till those people are in jail or equally bankrupted, till then it’s just words.
    69 – Not as predictable – good on them for now, tomorrow it’ll probably be state troopers sent instead of the locals.
    73 – lol
    In a normal state Farkas would be fked, but she’s running in NY so I don’t even know what she’s worried about, she could wear being a lying pos as a badge of honor and it would probably work.

    The author is a lawyer, and always VERY careful with his words. Even being careful he is describing CRIMES of the highest order committed by the Obama administration. If heads DON’T roll, then we no longer have a Republic

    80: We are no longer a republic, Barr just made statements that Biden and Obama will not be looked at\investigated by Durham, didn’t say not charged, but not even investigated. Tells me all I need to know that he’d go out of his way to say that at this juncture (i mean kinda knew this anyway but why go out and out right state it?). BTW So much for not commenting on on going investigations.

    Then again the mule told Trump he wasn’t a target when in fact he was entirely the target so there is that ‘give them fake sense of safety’ play, but I really don’t think that’s what’s going on, not even remotely.

    “Conservative historians worry history is repeating itself.”
    Newflash, it’s not really repeating itself, what happened then, never stopped happening. The only thing that changed were the names and tactics involved.
