As like all of you I watch Governor Andy every day at 5:00 PM. I also watch our President as well when the networks feel the need to broadcast it and when they do it's almost never in it's entirety, do you? I am also up on the edge of my seat, thinking, this will be the day but, it hasn't happens yet. What I'm referring to is, the abortion clinics, are they considered "essential"? Governor Andy is all concerned about saving lives and needing PPE so desperately, so, using up accentual PPE and killing babies is alright.

Exactly... Which of Uncle Andy's useless measures is going to "save my life"? Allowing abortions to continue when "non-lifesaving procedures" are shut down to save PPE? Letting 1k prisoners out of jail? Vetoing the voter photo ID bill? Ringing bells? Lighting houses up green? He STILL hasn't issued a stay-at-home order.

I watched his "fireside chats" for about a week, and then I couldn't stomach the man anymore! I catch the news to find out how many more cases and deaths, where, the ages, and any new rules (I mean, suggestions and exortations); the actual information takes up about five minutes. Not an hour and a half of blah blah blah...

Your opinion; my opinion. Sorry you didn't care for mine, for which I feel no shame. I admit I don't always agree with you, but I would never write "Shame on you, Mr. Hogs, I expect nothing more from a republican". That's not the way my mama brought me up. Attempting to shame someone with whom you disagree politically just isn't good manners.

My previous statement that evidently so aggravated you was based on actual events: Bevin's incredibly negligent and ignorant decision to send his kids to a "chicken-pox party", as opposed to Beshear's very compassionate, honest, and direct daily appearances to inform the public of what's going on in our state during the corona pandemic. Comparing the two reveals a lot about the character of each man, imo.

Beshear has repeatedly said that fighting the corona virus should be a non-political battle for all Kentuckians, with which I agree. Whereas Bevin has continued to defend his decision to place his kids not only in danger of chicken pox, for which a vaccine is readily available, but also in danger of contracting shingles in the years ahead.

All Bevin has done since the current pandemic reached its present level (that I am aware of) was make a snarky post about how Beshear is handling this crisis on Facebook a couple of weeks ago - the ""Chicken Little" post others here have referred to.

So I stand by my "statement like this", and yes, I am a (moderate) Democrat (capitalize the "D", please), but even if I were not, I would recognize the pressing need to put politics apart in favor of saving lives right now. Don't you agree with that??

. No shame on me!

And note: that poll (placing Andy Beshear first among the nation's governors in the way in which he is dealing with the corona virus) is from "U.S. News & World Report", which is hardly a liberal publication. For those unfamiliar with USNWP, it is moderately conservative.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, kygman.

Enforcing "shelter at home" (it's not even an executive order; just a "suggestion" that he makes day after day after day.....) would be, but he's too WOO-WOO and mealy-mouthed for that. I can't decide if he's a frustrated teacher, preacher, counselor, or massage therapist, but he's a pretty weak leader (I think his Daddy must have pressured him to follow in his footsteps).
Well, Andy's grandfather Beshear was a preacher, so perhaps it's hereditary.

However, all of the things you sneer at are effective reminders to others to take precautions. As such, if they work, they are more than welcome, as far as I am concerned. They hurt no one, and if someone is reminded or moved to behave in safer ways, is that not a good thing?

I'm not sure Beshear can constitutionally issue an executive order that people remain in their homes for an unknown period of time. I think that would need to be made at the federal level, under martial law.

But strongly urging people to stay home, and backing that request with the current alarming statistics, is surely convincing enough for anyone with common sense to follow that advice.

As for those who yell "My FREEdom!!" and chafe against said strong suggestions, it seems to be difficult for them to get it through their hard heads that they may not only be endangering themselves - but others. When more innocent deaths come closer to these self-proclaimed lovers of freedom, perhaps their views will change. Sad that it will most likely have to come to that...

And the fact is, for you to speculate on what COULD have happened if Governor Bevin had been in charge, when in FACT neither you nor me could possibly know in any way shape form or fashion what he might have done. He may have done better but, who am I to say?
And, the fact that you question ones intelligence for not voting for Governor Beshear well, like I said, shame on you," I expected better from you", Because in this Country I have that right, thank goodness.
And as for putting politics aside, I have done that, you were the one that brought it up, not me. I haven't said one negative word about Governor Beshear's performance as it pertains to this invisible enemy. My issues with Governor Beshear were present long before all of this and I'm sure they will be there long after.

Your damn right it aggravated me.
