  1. This governor just cant give it a rest. In spite of a national epidemic, he has to bring politics into it, blaming people for not acting as soon as he would have. He obviously is a Monday morning quarterback with 20/20 hindsight who is full of sh**. Pathetic!

  2. He says the administration said “states on their own to get ventilators”. That is a lie and he knows it. If he is lying about such a little detail he can (and he does) lie about anything. Trump said in his news conference “we are working on getting ventilators and other things but if you as governors or mayors can get them faster do not wait on us to get them for you” And polis is acting like it is all the current administration’s fault (Trumps) but he has been governor as long as Trump has been President. If he wants to place blame, maybe on the previous administration (s). And this is only 5 minutes into an hours or so talk. HE is trying his best to politicize everything he can , what a piece of **** our governor is. Hopefully he is only one term. Wake up you democrats and see thru his excuses and lies.

  3. I just heard that all Harbor Freight stores will be donating their PPE stock to their local health care centers, from wherever they have a store. Good for them!

  4. To allow the “other 50%” to work from home is NOT the intent of this order. Anyone who can work from home already is. This is making the other open businesses reduce their workforce by 50% either by temporarily laying off 50% or cutting everyone’s time by 50% and alternating who is at work and who is staying home not working.

    1. To clarify, I’m not weighing my opinion on the order itself, but on the reporter who wrote that false information. Seems with this virus you can’t trust the media one bit- usually they’re flooding every article with scare tactics but you can always count on them to sugar coat anything the liberal establishment does. Again, my opinion aside, this is an obvious attempt to run interference for Governor Sidesaddle and his decision that will cause hard times for a lot of people.
