I’m not a big fan of how Bill Gates made his money, but I applaud his call for a nationwide shutdown of the United States to deal with the coronavirus.
As I’ve written before, the President of the United States needs to order a nationwide shutdown. Anything else is just going to prolong how long and how hard we have to deal with the coronavirus, and how many deaths there will be. As I posted before, dealing with this on a state-by-state basis is like having a “peeing section” in a swimming pool. We are, after all, “One Nation Under God.”
