Is there something they’re not telling us, or is this just an over abundance of caution?

The craziness escalates. What about the servers and cooks who get by on minimum wages and tips? My daughter works at three restaurants in the SF Bay area. She texted me this morning that she is now unemployed. Feeling good you democrats out there that think this will help defeat Trump? This just makes him stronger.

And I suppose all the landlords are waving rent and utilities are waving payment for service? Waiters who live on tips, what are they supposed to do? I simply don't see this as necessary if vulnerable people stay in, we all practice good hygiene, and the sick don't go out in public. Most of us do not lived stacked on top of each other like cord wood. Most of us drive our own cars and don't rely on crowded public subways or buses or trains (have they shut those down?) We are not China, we are not Italy.

If the crisis is this bad that restaurants have to be closed then I believe its time that all primaries be shut down. PRESIDENT Trump stays in office until next year when primaries can resume and voting can happen the following november. 2022. Can't let a good crisis go to wast, and its for the protection of the American citizen. Closing restaurants is just plain nuts. I think dewine and the gov. of Illnois, who did the same are just helping the economy tank. But believe me, it will not tank PRESIDENT Trump.

Man, I have read that silly constitution twice and I keep missing the part where it gives goobernment dictatorial powers over constitutional rights. Welcome to the new, permanent United Dictators Of America. Whip up a health problema nd shut down whatever business you desire. Lock people in their homes. Remember 9/11 gave us the goobernments's unlimited license to spy on us i.e. FISA. This is the beginning of the Democrats' utopia. The new chant at sporting evens, if there ever are any, will be U-D-A, U-D-A. Kinda prophetic of the US citizens for allowing this.

How many people will die by killing the economy? Ever wonder what it felt like to live through the great depression? Well we are about to find out thanks to the Democrats and their propaganda organs spreading dire warnings. Trump has no choice but to overreact just to save himself politically as the disease spreads like they always do. Decreased productivity will result in worse health care and poorer diets not to mention an increase in depression and consequently suicides.

According to a December 5, 2019 article published by Operation Rescue, an anti-abortion organization, Dr. Amy Acton, as a registered Democrat, worked on the 2008 Obama presidential campaign and subsequently managed non-profit fundraising grants for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and the NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation. She is now Director of Ohio’s Department of Health. For a Pro-Life governor, her appointment to her current position is perplexing. According to a PJ Media report by Rick Moran, on Thursday, March 12, 2020, Dr. Acton said in a press conference that she believed 100,000 Ohioans had contracted Covid-19. On Friday, March 13, 2020, Dr. Acton said “her statement the previous day that 100,000 people in the state currently have coronavirus was based on ‘guesstimating,’” casting doubt on the high number. On Sunday, March 15, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine ordered all restaurants and bars to close at 9:00 PM for in-person dining until further notice; however, of carryout and delivery services would be permitted. With Dr. Action having erroneously caused a heightened concern about 100,000 Ohioans having the coronavirus, it is not unreasonable to consider whether or not Sunday’s directive from Governor DeWine to close Ohio’s restaurants and bars is based on the advice of Dr. Acton.

Nashville bar owners are telling the mayor to pound sand! Tootsie's owner and Kid Rock say they won't close their bars unless the state mandates closure and that the mayor does not have the constitutional right to do this. You should have seen the windbag and his utterly clueless public health authority talking head. They couldn't answer ANY questions lobbed at them. Pathetic! Now, your move Mayor Cooper. Will you send out the cops to muscle local businesses into line like the good little commie you are? .

It seems to me, that we have a bifurcated issue here. For people under 65, the coronavirus while very contagious, is not typically serious, in fact, many people who have contracted the virus, have no symptoms at all. For people over 65, especially those with underlying pre-existing conditions, the virus can be very serious, with a 8% mortality rate (for those between 70-80) and 15% (for those over 80). I can see no reason for people under 65 to stop working, or to stop living their lives normally. People over 65 do need to stay at home and avoid contact with other people, probably until there is warmer weather which hopefully will slow down and stop this virus, and/or until a vaccine is discovered (scientists are working on several right now). But for the entire nation to come to a screeching halt, makes little sense.

When was the last time gasoline pumps been sanitized? When was the last time ATMs have been sanitized? How many people use them daily? What about buses, passenger trains, and airplane travel? Shouldn't we shut them down too? Seriously, what is next? THIS IS INSANE!!! You cannot do this! Our government is clamping down on us more and more. Is this a prelude to a coup? A declaration of martial law with Trump ultimately being replaced? Hope Trump is watching his back. Have a hunch Trump will regret declaring a state of emergency, but he was damned either way. Is this how desperate Washington and the powers that be are to replace him?

I can see closing some things in NY. But in flyover country like Kansas and Wyoming, nothing is closer than 20 miles already. We don't need to close the world down. I don't think the Gov of Ohio should have the power to close restaurants and bars. People have been provided hands and a mind. I hope those don't evolve away from disuse, so that only the government is able to make decisions.

"A government cannot just shut down 30 to 50 percent of the way civil society feeds themselves, without planning and advanced preparation for an alternative. Those who ARE the alternative, the retail food grocers, need time to prepare themselves (and their entire logistical system) for the incredible impact. Without preparation this is a man-made crisis about to get a lot worse."- Sundance

Well, Gov Newsom is doing the same thing here in CA—bars, wineries and breweries. Hubby and I made the trip to one winery today to pick up our shipment and had lunch at their bistro—wanted to support a small business during this turmoil. Newsom also says people over 65 should stay home. I just phoned my 89 year old mom and told her—she is prideful, defiant and won’t do it. I told her I’m not coming to help her if she gets it—she is a big part of the problem, she’s ‘not old’ in her mind and thinks nothing bad will ever happen to her! I told her I will come and render her car undriveable (she shouldn’t be driving either but good luck with that!). She is very arrogant and I’m fed up. If it’s only affecting elderly and people with health issues, then THEY should self quarantine. This is absurd.

CNN commentator Chris Cuomo admonished President Trump for repeatedly calling the coronavirus "the Chinese virus." “Calling it the Chinese virus or the Wuhan virus or the Kung Flu. Listen, you may think it's clever, but it's hurting,” Cuomo said on his nightly show on Wednesday. “The idea, ‘Well, it did come from China.’ Then why doesn't Fauci and other top health officials, why don’t they call it that? You know why? Because it could have come from anywhere.” The virus, which has sparked a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in an animal market in Wuhan, China. Trump has said he uses the phrase "Chinese virus" for accuracy purposes.

The far right in America has received the coronavirus pandemic in much the same manner as any other event: with disinformation, conspiracies and scapegoating. Many seem to see it as a significant opportunity, whether it is for financial gain, recruiting new followers, or both. The delayed and much criticized response to coronavirus by the Trump administration has helped them, leaving many Americans confused, bereft of information and looking for answers. A situation in which people are panic-buying supplies is ideal for a movement powered by fear and lies.
