Why is Florida so much more stable than Michigan/Wisconsin? Florida is walking circles around the nation on the COVID-19 crisis.
I've had my ideas, but would love to hear from masses.

You might have it here. Let me dig a little deeper. It looks like Florida is trying to solve a problem. Michigan/Wisconsin are trying to make the problem worse. It's just that simple. Look at the COVID-19 diagnosis process in Michigan. If you are hospitalized it is COVID. The Michigan/Wisconsin want the big numbers.

My take: I had high hopes when DeSantis was elected, and he exceeded all my expectations.
Dumped Common Core, removed Sheriff "Parkland" Israel, made a bunch of conservative appointments etc.

Then the virus hit and, just like Trump, he's stuck tween a rock and a hard place. Heads they win, tails you lose.
I think he's doing a reasonably good job of threading the needle, but I could be wrong.

So Flave, seriously, what could Desantis be doing that he's not doing yet?

I ask as an honest question. My FIL lives in Orlando, and we are there often. My wife was born and raised there, so we stay connected to Florida.

I expected COVID 19 to take a heavy toll in Florida, given the combination of aging snowbirds from NY, Ontario, and points north, along with the basic situation that parts of Florida are populated by retirees full time, and the normal NY to Miami/Dade/Broward connection. It hasn't happened.

I'm shocked The Villages hasn't been wiped out. Maybe STDs protected them? Ocala hasn't been a hot spot.

Time to open the beaches and open parts of the state, if not all of it to tourism. No reason the Panhandle can't open. Louisianna has calmed down. Largely tourists from Ga and AL hit the panhandle anyway. Numbers have gone down since re-opening here, in spite of dire predictions to the contrary.

It might be the Florida retires would string Desantis up if he tried any of the BS the Northern dims are doing. One of the few bright lights in Michigan is the Owosso barber that opened up despite the COVID-19 order. Could this be an age decision process?

I live in Florida and governor DeSantis has done a good job. However, at this point, one must look at the numbers and realize you have to open the economy back up again.

The death rate does not justify collapsing and entire state’s economy. Most people I speak with feel the same way and believe at this point the numbers are skewed to try and make President Trump look bad.

Things are opening back now and this is great news!

DeSantis is doing a decent job, IMO. But, he needs to get more aggressive opening up the economy. If you compare his body of work with a larger population, to that of the dumbschit in NY, which a lot of people want to do, he's been far more successful in keeping corona virus deaths down.

He's been criticized for the slow payout of unemployment benefits. But, he inherited a system designed by his predecessor, Rick Scott (now Senator Rick Scott after ousting 20 year entrenched D- for douchebag Bill Nelson), to only have people on unemployment for a short time, 12 weeks. That system also makes it difficult to initiate, extend or restart benefits.

I'll take his +'s over his -'s.

The hot spots in FL are all the usual suspects; Miami-Dade, Broward, and PB counties.
You know, the places that can't run an election to save their lives.

The panhandle is open. I just left Pensacola and the beaches are packed, you have a hard time finding a parking space. Restaurants are open, people are out boating. Jet ski rental places are doing a brisk business.

The only real difference from normal is the Ft Pickens National Seashore area is still closed, I’m not sure why that is.

For starters, this was all pitched as a means of eliminating spring break traffic. "14 days" to "flatten the curve" he said.

Bull fugking schit. That was months ago, and here the state sits, still in lock down.

What level of fugking idiot, thinks any of this lock down schit is doing anything? It's absurd. Miami-Dade and Broward needed the governor's "approval" before moving forward today. Broward wanted a whopping 50% capacity for their restaurants starting this Monday.

Desantis had to make a big bullschit show of it today. Like he's giving us a fugking gift.

The only governor that has a set is Kemp. The rest are all kghunts as far as I'm concerned.

Just like to drive a vehicle one doesn't need a license, or even the keys if one knows certain things, then all one needs to barber are some scissors, right?

If folks keep going to his shop in support of him, perhaps he can pay the fines and continue to cut hair?

I'll be going to get my $100.00 hair cut. I hope the line isn't around the block. The Owosso barber is an old timer patriot. It will be an honor to support him.

I saw some BS that Kemp's approval rating here has dropped to 39%. I just can't imagine which Democrats they polled, because his move to open the state has been appreciated by nearly everybody on this end of town, which is the working end. People are sick of staying home. Our hospitals are slowly emptying of COVID patients according to my sources at the various hospitals. Outside of Northside main campus, I know a dozen hospitals in the metro area that have less than 20 COVID patients and only 1 or 2 per hospital are serious right now. Since opening May 1, the number of cases has dropped, not increased.

Kemp has been widely criticized, mostly by people OUT of state. The national media has screamed. Interestingly, the local media, both TV and AJC has played it mostly fair and straight.

National media doesn't realize that Kemp has a very strong team of experts that I would argue are more qualified to advise on the subject that Dr. Foucci. He has doctors, professors and epidemiologists from 4 Med Schools here in state who know a thing or two about epidemics and have REAL data from Georgia to base decisions on.
