I am more concerned with the damage to our freedom and liberties. These shelter orders are not law. Governors can not just declare a law. People are being arrested for just being outside...alone..paddle boarding, running on the beach, a family of 3 in a park not near anyone else, telling us what we can and can't purchase. We have willingly given up our freedom. There is no reason that if people practice proper social distancing protocols we can not go about our private business without government telling us we can not buy paint. I go about my day as I need to and do wear a mask and use gloves when needed. I will not lay down and give up my rights because a governor says I should. Gun stores can't do business but pot stores can? Liquor stores can?
Um, I think you are overly excited. Our Governor here in TN obviously isn't in any hurry to restrict you from doing much unless you feel compelled to hang out in a bar or eat inside a restaurant. Believe you can still buy all the guns you think you need. And yes, the government, whether local, state or Federal can tell you what to do within the constraints of the Constitution which have been pretty well established at this point. This is your trade off for living where you live. Stay safe!

If they tested everyone in the country, they could isolate those who test positive, whether or not they are symptomatic. Makes more sense than isolating the whole population.


It makes no sense whatsoever.

If you started tomorrow morning, April 15 2020, and tested 1,830,650 people each and every day including Saturdays and Sundays, you would complete testing the entire population (estimated at 329,517,000 as of 10 minutes ago) on October 12 2020. How do you handle the folks during that time that tested negative, and subsequently were infected at a later date?

Even if the test would only cost $25 each, and I guarantee you they cost a hell of a lot more than that, you're talking about a minimum cost of $45,766,250.00 per day, every day, for 6 months or a total of over 8 billion dollars LOL.

20% of all small businesses fail in the first year and 50% fail in the first 5 years. Don't blame that on orders to self distance.

To be clear, he stated 25% of all small businesses are expected to fail. I don't know where this comes from or is truly expected, but you are only counting new businesses which is a far smaller number.

$8billion is a drop in the ocean compared to the money being thrown around. We already are sending out 50 times that just in the $1200/person checks.

Sure it would take time but by quickly isolating those with the disease, you would limit the spread while people continue to work and keep the economy generating the money to pay for all this.

The way it's going right now we will still be in lockdown this time next year with no sign of an end.
