If you lived in St Martin, how would you feel about planeloads of people from the most widely hit country coming to visit?

More widely than China?

Yep

US has more cases and dead than China or any country in the world.

You deny that (I am sure you will)

Google is not a source, it's a path
to the source. It's like saying 'library'
was your source. Libraries store
sources, they aren't a source themselves.

The cool thing is, you don't have to shut down the economy to go after that one. Of course, if we did, I guess many people would vote for more smoking so people could go back to work.


The reality is if you say we will accept 100 deaths per day from the virus...there are a LOT of people who will scream bloody murder, shut it all down.

Well, we accept 400 deaths per day and still allow people to ingest something we know is killing them. We not only allow them to ingest it by advocating it for sale, we also allow them to spew those carcinogens into those who happen to be sitting next to them in our almighty casinos.

Iíll accept whatever the experts feel is the best path. I just canít accept the moral and ethical $%#ing hypocrisy of the entire ball of wax.

I donít have the answers but I do know how to think and conduct in a consistent manner.

It will be interesting to see what impact Joe Camel imparts on the decision making upon the grand re-opening of our gambling palaces. Is it money first or health first?

Why don't you just shoot an email to the Chinese Communist Party, I'm sure they will give you the straight scoop.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.

No we don't. But the number of people who actually would support getting rid of tobacco usage for that reason is not powerful enough to overturn the views of the majority. Some actively support usage, and some just take a libertarian view even if they don't personally think it's a good thing. There's just not enough people in the full anti crowd.

First shot fired in Arizona. Setting the tone for re-opening. Once one does, the others will. I'm still thinking May 1st.
