It always feels good to make it to Friday, but this week it’s especially welcome. Join Jim and Greg as they discuss reports that we may be days away from a national lockdown that closes airlines, the markets, and forbids millions from commuting to work. They also groan as a number of U.S. senators face lots of questions after selling off stocks before the market plummeted over coronavirus fears. And as three New Hampshire residents sue Gov. Chris Sununu over his allegedly unconstitutional order banning gatherings of more than 50 people,they discuss the tensions between freedom and safety.

    I remember reading about Senators and Congressmen using their special knowledge for insider trading, months or years before this particular occurrence.

    Attempts to change the law to prevent this have always foundered; because it would require the votes of: Senators and Congressmen.

    Presumably, the reason this particular occurrence is getting so much publicity is that Democrats and their friends in the media think it may help flip the Senate.

    And, of course, they know they can count on the usual gang of useful idiots*, conservatives who have a strange habit of letting off Democrats and condemning Republicans.

    *I name no names; but it’s possible that someone who is always wrong is among their number.

    And, that’s also how you get Trump!
