I live in Kirkland WA.....UPDATE It's a nationwide shitshow!

Update 3/2 12:24 pm. It's now up to 6 dead in WA. With 18 people affected. There aren't many folks tested so we probably have many many more. The University of WA is reporting that it may have been in the community for well over a month. We are seeing more closures for decontamination efforts but IMO without testing that is just a noble but fruitless effort. It just takes one person to come in and spread the virus on surfaces again.

It was just reported that another person from the nursing home died today...So now that's two deaths here. In addition the confirmed cases county wide now is up to 10. I am not personally afraid. I am taking every precaution possible and am not putting myself in situations where I'm exposed to large amounts of people. Our Amazon Prime deliveries are backed up two days...So if you want to order delivery you need to think ahead. My family doesn't need to self quarantine at this point so we are still walking the dog and doing quick trips to the store. Costco was pretty much a mess yesterday. We weren't there, but heard it was a zoo and the stock was dwindling fast. Restaurants are empty and the facebook local groups are seeing lots more posting.

For the most part, I feel like the local news and government has been really good about providing information and education without un necessary fear mongering.

I'm telling you this because Kirkland really could be your town, your community. We are a fairly affluent community outside of Seattle. Our population is pretty much families who want to benefit from our beautiful lake, parks and excellent schools. It's not if anymore- it is when this will impact your community.

Please wash your hands, sanitize your hard surfaces like door knobs, and don't go out if you are feeling sick.

Who else has Trump spoken with on his cell phone? And who has the "tapes"?

Lindsey???? Mitch????

Who else has heard these conversations? Whose been listening in?

You would think his cronies and goons would be alarmed by this...

Where's the outrage?

The media needs to start asking the questions....What about your calls with the President...are you confident they were secure?

Will the Russians, the North Koreans or the Chinese post them on You Tube?

Although it Brings Tears....It keeps me Going...

I was blessed to have had second row seats at his last concert in Seattle. Truly one of the best experiences of my life.

An answer to this question may help convince those skeptical of Medicare for all.

One thing I have been wondering about and have yet to see addressed is; what happens to the money currently being contributed by employers to purchase health care for employees. I would think that this money if added to an employees paychecks would be a win win for both employers and workers. It would cut administrative costs, reduce issues in labor negotiations for those with union shops and increase pay for workers. It's complicated of course as I think it's unlikely that we can require companies to hand back these funds to employees. I know when I was working the cost of my employers share for my insurance was around $500 bucks a month. That's a good chunk of change to put in peoples pockets.

How are you all coping and How are you doing it?

Not a day goes by now that I'm not silently screaming multiple times every time I pay attention to the current state of our countries affairs. I find it have had to curtail my news intake as my body just can't take the anger and anxiety I feel every time Trumps face or voice appears. Feeling enraged is fricken exhausting. I'm trying to find other distractions but the news junkie in me keeps going back in for that fix even though it sickens me. My public school teachers taught me in the sixties that a good citizen is an informed citizen and old habits die hard. I send what money I can to blue candidate, call and write my Congressional offices and feel like I talk to others about these criminals in the White House incessantly. I am coping the best I can by watching Korean Dramas and being mindful to pay attention to other things. I no longer can keep the news on in the background or in the car. We are living in strange and dangerous times....and it just sucks.

How are you all doing?

I encourage you to take action if you support moving impeachment forward

As far as I can tell today only one of our states Congress-members supports Impeaching Trump, Pramilia Jayapal. If you like me live in a blue district it's easy to become complacent sometimes and assume our more Progressive reps are supporting impeachment. That is not the case. Many, like my rep DelBene are sitting on the fence and making no comment. This seems totally unacceptable to me considering the fact that their re-election is probably not a concern. They need to hear from us loudly and clearly that we expect them to uphold the Constitution and speak out about the Presidents unlawful behavior and what they intend to do about it. Today there is still nothing on DelBene's website about her position. This is Shameful

Gah....He's still babbling on....How's everyone coping?

So I turned him off and switched to the shopping channel and bought a fit bit. I'm old but I need to live long enough to see him in Prison.
