Sky is falling, sky is falling critics are not looking to smart right now. Have a couple or three weeks to see the final call on his move. At present, we are just seeing sour grapes.

Where I stand is that we - and the entire world - were blind sided by the Chinese Communist government. The initial reaction was one of Oh, mother; ultra caution, (which I do not fault). Now we know more. Can take appropriate steps to contain, mitigate and treat, until a vaccine is available. For all we know though, this might be like seasonal flu in mutation and it will not be eradicated.

We know fat is not good, that the chronic illnesses that fat brings is a likely death sentence. We know it is not smart to cram C-19 patients into nursing/long term care homes, nor to not regularly sanitize your public transit.

Don't be just another opportunist political shill.

Absurd comment of the day. Abrams lost. Get over it.

He was clearly elected governor. He has a mandate to do the job. He is supposed to make decisions in his best judgement.

And you are free to disagree with his judgement and vote against him in 3 1/2 years.

Disagree we shall. Especially when his recklessness is endangering human lives.

No, he doesn't.

A mandate is when you were elected by such a wide margin that you were given implicit permission by most voters to govern a certain way. That doesn't apply for Kemp, who won by a very slim margin.

Yet, throughout this crisis, he has catered to the will of his pro-business, pro-small government base while only having passive concern at best for the public health of his constituency in urban areas who have been (and will continue to be) hardest hit by the virus by his unwillingness to enforce social distancing rules recommended by scientists.

Yes, he was elected - as the sitting Secretary of State responsible for massive voter suppression prior to and during the campaign. There was widespread uproar for a reason.

With such abysmal/nonexistent 'leadership,' this will thankfully be his first and last term.

People who are in the at risk categories need to stay at home. Period. Kemp isn't making anyone do anything. The data tells us who is at risk and who isn't. It is skewed extremely heavily in one direction.

Georgia bashed for using erroneous Coronavirus data

Quote:
The Georgia Department of Public Health has come under fire for sharing erroneous data that suggested the number of confirmed coronavirus cases decreasing — providing flattening-curve models that Gov. Brian Kemp used to justify the Peach State’s reopening, according to a report.

A recently posted bar chart on the agency’s website showed that new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the five counties with the most infections had dropped each day over two weeks, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

But there was no downward trend as cases have held steady or dropped slightly during that time period — and experts agreed that in those counties, the cases were flat when the state began reopening last month, according to the newspaper.
Georgia isnt the only state I would accuse of this, but this whole idea of putting 'anyone' (elderly and non) at risk to save a few businesses is downright awful. Especially to the decree that you're willing to lie about the severity to the public in effort to do it.

I think this article does a good job of explaining the whole situation. The media has greatly overblown this in my personal opinion.
