    I need help from the Freeper family for cross country travel advice during the Covid re-opening, to drive from California to the southeast and scout out locations for a new place to live. I am asking Freepers for information regarding travel restrictions and accomodations in various states, at and to my destinations. - Questions 1. Are hotels open for business in Alabama, Florida, South Carolina and Tennesee? 2. Are masks and face coverings mandatory in Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee? 3. Are apartment managers allowing visitors to physically see units in their apartment complexes, or is everything still...

    Republican National Committee officials are considering Nashville and other locations as potential sites for the GOP convention amid a standoff with North Carolina over whether it will allow the party to hold it in Charlotte as planned. Party officials are expected to make a trip to Nashville later this week, likely Thursday or Friday, according to a person familiar with the deliberations. Nashville is one of several locations in which Republicans are expressing interest. Others include Las Vegas; Orlando, Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Georgia. All of the prospective sites have directly expressed interest in hosting the convention, and party officials...

    Fatass has now added Wisconsin to the list of places his family has been staying in violation of the "quarantine" and "no-travel" orders he has given: Gov. J.B. Pritzker for the first time Friday acknowledged his wife and daughter were in Florida before Illinois’ statewide stay-at-home order took effect in March and just recently returned to Chicago. But don't worry! It's all because of "safety:" He said he was being “very private and very reserved” about his family “because there are threats to my safety and to their safety. “You have seen that there are people that stand outside the...

    Gotta love how the Democrats went after President Donald Trump for cutting travel with China at the end of January, implying it was “racist” or “hysterical xenophobia” (the words of Joe Biden). Now that it’s clear that was the correct move, suddenly Democrats are scrambling to reposition their comments. Earlier in the month, Joe Biden’s campaign tried to pitch that he was always supportive of the travel restrictions, despite what he said, and despite his additional comments that he didn’t think restrictions on travel with Europe would be helpful. Dr. Anthony Fauci said both moves likely saved lives. But Biden’s...

    A man was forcibly removed from a Philadelphia public bus on Friday for not wearing a face mask, according to WHYY. A Philadelphia Police official told WYYY that the incident began when a bus driver told the man to “leave the bus several times and the passenger repeatedly refused.” Police reportedly received 911 calls about the disturbance on a bus near the city's downtown. Once the officers arrived they also “ordered the male to leave the bus several times. The male refused, at which point he was physically removed by the officers,” police said, according to WHYY.

    Okay, so it looks like the isolation period is going to be extended to the end of April. It's going to be a long haul since I am already going a bit stir crazy. Only going out once per week for food (and one other pit stop last week to pick up our new Coronavirus car on a GM deal). Fortunately some of this isolation is mitigated by watching lots of stuff on TV. However, the sense of wanderlust remains. So my question to everybody is: What will you be doing once the isolation period ends? I am definitely thinking...

    In a bid to protect citizens from undue exposure to the coronavirus, the Madison, Wisconsin Metro Transit system has issued new guidelines for bus operations. Starting this week, Metro Transit will limit the number of persons allowed on a bus to one at a time. Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway pointed out that “since each bus requires a driver, no passengers will be allowed on board as long as the driver is behind the wheel. We recognize that ordinarily this would present a hardship for those who depend on public transit to get around the City. To mitigate the hardship on riders,...

    Italian virologist says open borders & fears over “racism” crippled Italy’s response to coronavirus. Professor of Virology and Microbiology at the University of Padova Dr. Giorgio Pal told CNN that measures imposing travel restrictions and border controls were taken too late due to fears over political correctness. “There was a proposal to isolate people coming from the epicenter, coming from China,” Pal told CNN. “Then it became seen as racist, but they were people coming from the outbreak.” Italy is now the hardest-hit country in the world in terms of coronavirus deaths, with 4,825 people losing their lives. The need...

    Just some information for anyone who may be traveling. I have a group of friends who are stranded in the Dominican Republic. Apparently, their government shut down all of their borders with little notice. I'm being told no planes or ships are allowed in at this time. My friends were scheduled to return back to the US today and the airline, Delta, canceled everything last night. Jet Blue took the same actions. Apparently there are many tourists on the island who have no idea how they are getting home. I spoke to the State Department this morning, they are aware...

    While some have questioned the legality of Governor Pritzker's authority to issue such a directive (not the supine news media -- of course), there is a proper and correct way to do this under Illinois law, but Governor Jabba Pritzker has bypassed some of the legal formalities. He seems content to rely upon talking points issued by Pelosi and Schumer and using every opportunity to bash Trump about COVID-19. Consider the following summary of executive power under the Illinois Public Health laws: Police Power & Limitations. Persons who are or are about to be ordered to be isolated or quarantined...

    In his quest to win votes for transforming America into a socialist country, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders has been emphasizing the positive achievements of Cuba's former long-time dictator Fidel Castro. Two of the positives that Sanders has cited during the debates have been literacy and health care. "Under Castro's rule they implemented a highly motivating incentive to learn to read: if you didn't you'd be forced to labor in the fields," Sanders remembered. "Let's give credit where credit is due. Seeing the problems we are having in this country, a policy of shipping non-learners off to labor battalions...
