"Even here there aren't enough stupid folks to keep bars and nail salons in business with the virus circulating around."

I hate to bust your bubble, but I sure wouldn't bet any money on that. Knowing certain diseases are spread by sharing needles never slowed that practice down much, if any. People can be unpredictably stupid, or should that be predictably stupid.

You have not seen anything yet, expect more where this came from.

"Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers extended the state's "Safer at Home" order from April 24 to May 26 on Thursday" Total Covid 19 deaths projected through August 4th - 338 (Range of error 191-780)

"Gov. Ralph Northam announced stay-at-home orders on March 30 for all Virginians through June 10 unless amended or rescinded before then.(Good luck with rescinded before then)" Total Covid 19 deaths projected through August 4th - 1188 (Range of error 296-3964)

Seems like going into an economic depression is a high price to pay.

I also heard from a really good source to expect PA to soon announce extending State Park Campground closures, currently closed to April 30, to June 1.


Two examples of where Trump May step in.

I think we have to remember to blame the virus for the economic hit rather than imagine all would be well if the governors had not acted. Most of what has closed here in TN would have closed anyway due to lack of customers. Even here there aren't enough stupid folks to keep bars and nail salons in business with the virus circulating around.
Good luck selling that hogwash. There's a difference between reacting, over reacting, and hyperventilation. Most of of us are smart enough to see the difference.

Are you saying there are enough stupid people to keep bars and nail salons open or that the few "non essential" businesses would not have suffered anyway? I think my original statement can stand on its own but since you brought it up, there is a documented 99% chance that I'm smarter than you are. [emoticon] [emoticon]

You can save all the older people that were in poor health all you want, yes it's hard to hear but true!
But when overreaction starts affecting the entire country then that's an even bigger issue.

"Great! Everyone's alive!" But there is no where to go because most businesses will have closed up and never reopen, people will have lost jobs. It's an evil spiral that will make Corona look like allergies. Wait till the stats of abuse and suicides starts rolling in. Don't think that will happen, then just wait and see.

Correct! All this hysteria about killing the economy. When this is over people are going to want stuff just like they did before and someone will be there to sell it to them[emoticon]

Yes, they need to leave things as they are since the majority are working and not suffering economically. [emoticon]
