    Default 7 States who won't mandate actions/bans/precautions (guess what 'color' they are)...

    This kind of 'political' distinction is just too predictable. The states with, the most uninsured, the most obese, the lowest academic tests score, the most kids receiving school lunch programs, food stamp usage, most abortions. They same 4 or 5 states show up consistently. No surprise that this is the latest at which the top 5 or 6 'top' another chart.

    Many states governors, both parties, are being given kudos for tell the Trump admin fuck you, we'll do what we can do given your DEARTH of information. Florida bought 1/2 tests kits from a source on their own, paying for it on their own.

    Rachel Maddow name-checks 7 states refusing to take necessary precautions to protect people

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow name-checked seven states that are refusing to take significant precautions to protect the citizens in their states. There are, however, municipalities that are taking the steps, but the governors there are doing little.

    Oklahoma City, for example, has instituted a ban on bars and restaurants along with large gatherings and gyms. The state of Oklahoma, however, has declared a statewide emergency, but Gov. Kevin Stitt (R-OK) has done little to handle the situation. Over the weekend, while coronavirus was spreading throughout the city in the wake of transmission from Utah Jazz basketball players, Stitt was bragging about eating out with his family.



    “Even as there is more and more focus of what states are pioneering new ideas, about what they can do to shut down and slow the spread of the virus, it’s also worth noting; we spend all of this time saying ‘Oh, California is trying, this the Bay is trying this, this city is trying this, schools are shut down here.’ We’ve been talking about the places where new stuff is being tried, where new strictures are being announced, look at it from the other side, though, too. It is worth noting that there are a bunch of states in this country that aren’t doing much at all.”

    The National Governor’s Association is tracking the state-by-state response and where there are mandated bans of any specific size. There are no statewide bans in Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Missouri, Mississippi, Idaho and Wyoming.

    “There’s no state-mandated school closures. No state-mandated limits on large gatherings. No state mandates on the operations of businesses like bars and restaurants,” Maddow said. These are all states where the Republican governor likely heard President Donald Trump’s directive and is simply choosing to ignore it.

    “Now, in some of these cases, there are, you know, recommendations, nonbinding recommendations, urgings, strong feelings, expressed by leaders, and within these states, some schools and some businesses have followed their own lead or followed those urging the nonbinding recommendations, you know, local school districts, having to make those calls themselves, but in all seven of those states, no statewide rules,” Maddow continued.

    Not suprising, they believe the Trump/Pence show, "it's contained," they got it "under control"

    The irony is that if it hits there State big time they will first looking for Federal assistence, just a continuation of Red State Socilaism

    ^ Making me relieved and happy, once again, to have escaped the redneck- and moron-ridden state of Missouri. My daughter and son-in-law live just across the river in Illinois, which has closed all schools, gyms, gathering places, etc. But his job is in downtown STL. Thankfully the company is having most of its personnel work remotely. So he is working from home now.

    Now their biggest problem is trying to work with a bouncy and energetic four-year-old who keeps interrupting. lol

    it is heartening to know there are still seven states where the people are smart enough to do what's right without the government telling them.......and its no surprise none of them are blue states......

    It is disheartening to know that those seven states might be going into the suck zone.

    They're not free-thinkers. They're just doing what their right-wing bubble tells them to do. And even if that wasn't the case, they'd still be wrong for thinking they can't catch the virus.

    The snake handling states are abetting mass death. Basically, Republican stupidity is a WMD.
