Quarantine Wish Lists

As week 5 of the Wuhan Chinese Bat Flu shutdown gets underway I find myself entertaining brief moments of optimism. I've been tending toward pessimism regarding everyone being able to go outside and have any fun again, fairly convinced that we might be out of commission until the fall. There must have been something in the delicious homebrew that my neighbor social-distance dropped at my door for Easter because I found myself in a couple of conversations on Monday about making plans when we get the freedom to roam again. Dare to dream, my friends! When I was first asked what I wanted to do most when we're allowed to congregate,

Comments:

I'm going to the beach. I live sneezing distance away from the ocean and yet we can't go because they all are closed. So I'm packing my chair, my umbrella, sun cream, some cold beverages and a good book or two. I will stay there until I am burnt to a crisp or out of stuff to read or drink. I am also going on a long drive. Where to, I have no idea. But I'm going to fill my gas tank and take off and drive where the roads lead me. For no good reason. Because I can do so now. We Americans were not bred to be cowering in our homes. It is time to get back to life. Open the damn country!!

I'm going to go hug my mom!!! She turned 80 last month and we never got to celebrate her birthday so that is at the top of the list too. She looks,acts, and feels 15 years younger than she is so she is itching to get back to her life too.

The only thing I am doing different now is not having dinner with friends or eating at restaurants with my wife. Nothing else is different for us. We wash our hands more, spray alcohol on hands after leaving a store shopping, before touching our car, and wipe down the shopping cart handle with an alcohol wipe. Nothing at all beyond that. I'll start back eating in restaurants as soon as they open them back up.

They should be demands, not wish lists. This is our country and we have a Constitution. A lot of governors and local officials are going to lose their jobs.

I'm going to Mass first. Then I'm going to get some new clothes and get my hair trimmed. I'll eat at a restaurant and take my grandchildren. I still go visit them, my city has had very few cases and no deaths so I am not in the least afraid. I just want to get back to normal.

Yea #7 it's a winter wonderland here this morning. I was just sharing yesterday with one of our elder statesmen employees, we need a company outing to the local watering hole as soon as we can. I plan on obliterating various bits of paper and other inanimate objects honing my skills in the second amendment arts. But seriously we need a national reflection. The people who influence vast swaths of our voters are effectively in the employ of communist China. The Chinese market due to its sheer volume has seized control of the media and entertainment industries, That should chill every patriot to the bone. We should never allow ourselves to become dependent on a foreign entity for any significant portion of a necessity. And none if we don't have the capacity to surge rapidly. Why do you think we looked the other way when attacked by Muslim terrorists and make excuses for them? Sure it's fun to blame whomever is in the big chair be it Bush Clinton or Carter but the reality is that three quarters of a century of negligence and corruption has put us in harms way. Ever fly into London and look out the window in wonderment at all the farm land below? Their young have left the country for centuries because the land is limited so why not buy food and build housing? They figured it out long ago now it's our turn.

Thank you #4. Articles like this an issue. Unless author has the virus, he is not quarantined. He is under house arrest. We need adjust our thinking. We are not “doing our part.” We are as a nation allowing ourselves to be locked in our homes out of fear of being tattled on by our brown-shirted neighbors. There is nothing stopping you from going on a long drive OP. Gas stations are open and the constitution is your permission slip. You don’t have to explain yourself to anyone. Roll the windows down and go! We are Americans and it’s time to start behaving like it.

Help start a recall drive to oust my governor for his overreaction to this virus scare. As soon as the People's Republic of Colorado re-opens, I'd like to go visit my children and grandchildren whenever I want. My wife and I would like to hitch up the fifth wheel and get back on the road and start doing some trips. I would also like to start going to my local fitness center again - been feeling like a bowl of warm jello lately.

I've been doing the things I normally do all along--fishing, gardening, a little grocery shopping as needed, and working from home. Right now, I figure most people aren't working, so I've been calling and texting friends and family members I haven't heard from in a while. When things get back to normal, I'm going to go see my parents first. Then I'm going to get together with some of the folks I contacted . . . . and give EVERY LAST ONE of them a HUG!

I have so many thoughts reeling through my mind and I just need to slow down to put some perspective on it. My husband's scummy company laid him, his boss, and others off during this virus outbreak. I think some of it is politically motivated and I started seeing some of those signs after Thanksgiving. I think they used they virus to take these actions. NO, he does not work in a restaurant or retail establishment. Like I said, scummy and scuzzy come to mind. It is kind of funny that liberal entities are trying very hard to blame this on President Trump. Yet, now governors (especially Democrat) are crying that they should be the ones opening the economies. Okay, fine, but I now have the mindset that you are the ones to blame if you keep insisting that it is Donald Trump's fault. I ask one question. Why didn't you shut down the economy right after you got word that President Trump was putting a travel ban in place for China? Why didn't you notify all nursing homes, hospitals, etc. of precautionary measures. After all, we could have slowed this down on January 31, right? See, if you insist on blaming President Trump then I will be insisting on what measures you took as a governor. Especially Evers. . .

I'm with #5. I long to celebrate Mass physically inside a church. EWTN has been a great blessing, but I miss our priest and our little 115-year-old country church. I take care of changing the liturgical banners and alter trimmings. I haven't been to Mass since the 2nd week of Lent. I can't wait to get into the sanctuary and replace the austere purple with Easter white. I long to receive the Eucharist. I've missed Mass a few weeks in a row before this, due to surgery recoveries, but I've never been away this long from physical reception since my reversion 25 years ago. I have been pleasantly surprised by the depth/strength of Spiritual Communion that has been building each of these weeks. I can hardly contain my excitement to be physically united with Christ once again. My feeling is very much like during courtship with TK, when we lived 130 miles apart, and waiting for the weekend when we could see each other.

The only thing I agree with what this guy says is that I'll try to never buy anything from China ever again! Some posters here get it. Others seem to buy into it ... unwittingly no doubt. We are NOT in "quarantine" --- we are in a "total lock-down" followed by a curfew. As if we are all criminals. Imposing a limit on movement when you are sick is a health position that makes sense if you refuse to be an adult and do it to yourself. That type of quarantine makes sense for the same reason Typhoid Mary had to be restrained as she kept working in the food industry even though she was a known carrier of a deadly disease. But imposing a quarantine on perfectly healthy people, many who were no where near the disease, is tyranny. What ever happened to "my body, my self" and the government shouldn't tell me what to do with my body! Hog wash, I know, but still ... We took the strongest economy driving the engine of the best car the world has ever seen and slammed on the breaks, while it was cruising along at 60 mph. The fish-tail skid made us all slam into the right guardrail and the damage not only stopped the car but will take perhaps years to repair and cost trillions of dollars more. The ripple effect will be long and hard as many kids will need to repeat a school year, defaults and bankruptcies increase, pensions are threatened with "haircuts" (cuts in total monthly payments due to lack of revenue from the funds the pensions are invested in), restaurants fold not just from a lack of customers but fear from people working there so they quit and many vacation areas have to be severally limited due to lack of hotels, airlines, etc. supplying the few tourists not afraid to show up. A total mess. And for what?

Haircut, pedicure, dog grooming, lunch with friends in a restaurant and most importantly, lending my support--financial and otherwise-- to every grassroots movement I can find that is pushing back against the petty tyrants who imposed their diktats on us all. Recall petitions, lawsuits, protests, billboards, whatever: Bring it on!

Same here, #2. My mom will be 101 in August, and my wife and I had to cancel a March trip to see her. This insanity must end: we cannot shut the country down for every virus/disease that threatens us. IN the fifties when polio was rampant, individuals took it upon themselves to be cautious (I well remember my parents not allowing me to go swimming). In this "crisis", however, pols and officials everywhere are violating the Constitution in the name of "safety". In Colorado, mountain communities like Gunnison are banning fishing, boating and even visiting one's second home with threats of $1000 fines and a year in jail. The Denver city council just passed a resolution to suspend all rent payments for renters and is asking the Governor to enforce this clear constitutional violation of property rights (and interference with private contracts between US citizens) across the state. Leftists and liberals will stop at nothing to make themselves feel better by increasing their power and telling others what they can and cannot do. We have set a dangerous precedent for the future.

One day after the Department of Justice filed a statement of interest supporting a Mississippi church in its lawsuit against the city government for a ban on drive-in worship services, the mayor relented, saying those types of gatherings are now acceptable. “Today, given the definitive guidance from the governor, in the city of Greenville we will allow drive-in and parking lot services in the city – so long as families stay in their cars with windows up,” Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons said Wednesday in a press conference.

The same day the number of U.S. dead from the coronavirus disease hit the 15,000 mark, we also crossed the 15 million mark on the number of Americans we threw out of work to slow its spread and "bend the curve." For each American lost to the pandemic, 1,000 Americans have lost their jobs because of conscious and deliberate decisions of the president and 50 governors. Some 60,000 citizens, we are told, will likely be lost in this pandemic. Are we prepared to accept 60 million unemployed to "mitigate" those losses? What price victory in this good and necessary war to kill the virus? Is it unseemly or coldhearted to ask?

While in the paint section at Home Depot, a young couple next to me wore masks. A thought popped into my head, “Am I nuts for not wearing a mask?” “Stop it. Get a grip, Lloyd.” When many are responding in fear and panic, it can be a challenge not to succumb. Governors are allowing people to shop at liquor stores, Walmart, Home Depot, fabric stores, and more, while banning people from listening to sermons in their cars in church parking lots. And yet, an elderly Christian minister friend is scolding Christians for rebelling against the repeal of their religious liberty. He also believes everyone should wear masks and gloves.

As the media begins to roil with reports of bank delays in the distribution of business recovery loans from the government plan to save business from the effects of quarantine and closure, it is important to ask if there is more to the story than the mere miserly attitude of the run-of-the-mill bank. Back in early 2000, Barney Frank and a lot of other politicians passed legislation forcing banks to throw away traditional mortgage underwriting guidelines to make mortgages to low-income Americans (or no income Americans). If the banks didn’t, they would not get permission to open new branches and grow. That contributed largely to the 2008 financial crisis,

Former President Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder admitted he saw coronavirus as “an opportunity” to permanently change the way Americans voted. “Coronavirus gives us an opportunity to revamp our electoral system so that it permanently becomes more inclusive and becomes easier for the American people to access,” Holder said in an interview with TIME magazine. He called for a “sea change” in voting systems, allowing Americans to vote from home, using prepaid mail-in ballots and unlimited absentee voting. Holder did not discuss concerns about voter fraud in his interview but posited that any special exceptions made to the voting process during the coronavirus should remain permanent.

Two Democratic congressmen have proposed expanding the coronavirus relief program to give Americans $2,000 a month until the economy recovers. The checks would go to individuals making less than $130,000 or couples who earn less than $260,000 and would be steady source of income, unlike the first round of individual checks, which, at up to $1,200, were a one-time deposit. The money would cease when unemployment returns to its pre-coronavirus levels. Representatives Tim Ryan of Ohio and Ro Khanna of California said their Emergency Money for the People Act would provide more relief as workers face pay cuts, layoffs and furloughs
