I don’t think this is a hurrah at all. We were unnecessarily and unconstitutionally stripped of liberties and livelihoods, and now they act as though they are going to do us a favor by giving us back those things ... piece by piece, halfway or less! The govt needs to get the heck out of our lives

The Governor of Tennessee can only open up counties who are under the Tennessee Dept of Health, that is counties without their own municipal health departments. Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga will all make their own decisions regarding how quickly they will open back up. The "experts" are already blaming Gov. Lee for opening up too soon *the Vanderbilt "experts" with huge paychecks from endowments and no worries want to keep us all locked up until Spring of next year!) but some counties in Tennessee still have ZERO cases, ZERO! Why should they be destroyed because the cities have more cases? Even inside of states themselves, one size does not fit all.

I went to the hospital today for a presurgery workup, and to my surprise (sarcasm) there were no lines of COVID patients out the door and around the block and no corpses piled up in the corridors. I'm beginning to think this whole thing is a fake -- a two month experiment in totalitarianism to see what we peons would do.

I was out and about in our small rural town (northern Cal) this afternoon. The first time TK has let me do the town run since March 8. It seemed like every store on main street was open, except clothing and the nail salon. Lots of people at the Safeway, about one third were wearing masks and a few also wore gloves. Gee, I forgot my mask at home. (/s) The funniest thing I saw was at the nursery/garden supply. They only have nine parking spaces and they placed big pallets of bagged soil in every other space. They were social distancing the cars! All five spaces were full so I passed on stopping and picking up the liquid fertilizer for my flower garden. I'll wait for saner times.

I am sure CA and NY have cut a deal to not re-open anything until late June or mid-July so they can use it as an election issue against Trump. If they don't re-open before July 4th this country will be burning from sea to shining sea and the democrats will suffer the biggest election loss in US history. Bring it suckahs.

#9 Conservative Treehouse has an article about just that. Grocery stores have the highest foot traffic of any US business and that has increased by 40% during this virus. And yet, other than supply chain shortages the ability of grocery stores to function, keep the stores open, serve customers hasn't been impacted by the virus. Outside of healthcare professionals, grocery check out clerks are the most in peril since they come in contact with a huge numbers of people everyday and they should be dropping like flies if our expert overlords are right and yet again, they aren't. Some interesting thoughts about how necessary this lock down is for most of the country.

The reality is this: The ChiComs unleashed this germ warfare engineered plague on the world targeting specifically America. This ChiCom engineered disease attacks the cardiovascular (heart) respiratory, circulatory (creating blood clots) and gastrointestinal systems simultaneously. This ain’t no common freaking cold. It’s a weapon. And it has not been beat down and there IS GOING TO BE BLOWBACK as the population re-engages indiscriminately, Bill of Rights or not. Count on it. Now, there ain’t no N95 ‘s for all us pilgrims. Why is that! Guess who’s got the vaccine? We’ll it ain’t us. And Hydroxy? “They” don’t want a resolution, We are at war with the ChiComs, “we” are too stupid to realize same. Get ready for the next crisis following the previous crisis following the previous crisis. Get N99 masks Kemo Sabe, you are going to need them as the buffalo go over the cliff. Vaporize the ChiComs.

With regard to #8, I'm sure those commie demonrat governors will keep their states locked down as an excuse for a Goobermint bailout. Piglousi and Chuckie are already working on it. I heard it will be a $5 trillion bailout bill.

I live in OK and for the first three weeks or so, everyone sort of stayed home. Streets were eerily empty. Then folks just gave up on quarantine. Streets slowly started filling up again, parking lots at Walmart, Walgreens, other national supermarkets, Target, Lowe's, etc., were filled to normal. I do see more people with masks but wonder if they understand it only helps others if they are sick. It doesn't save them from anything. Anyway, it's past time to reopen this stuff. I don't like the governor, at all, but so far I approve of his handling this situation.

Went to Home Depot yesterday near Orlando. They were so crowded - 5 deep at the paint counter, etc. - there were no available shopping carts. An employee got on the intercom and announced "any associates not helping a customer, go out to the parking lot and start bringing carts back into the store." I've never heard that before in ANY store.

Instead, thousands of disgruntled Wisconsinites descended upon the capitol in protest after the Evers administration extended the Dairy State’s so-called Safer at Home order another month.

Without question, the most controversial issue of the 2016 campaign was then-candidate Donald Trump’s pledge to “build a big, beautiful wall” along the entire U.S.-Mexico border.Indeed, the totality of Trump’s immigration policies — a border wall, stricter internal enforcement, deportations, ending sanctuary cities — was attacked mercilessly by the Hillary Clinton campaign and her lamestream media lapdogs.And yet, political analysts believe that’s how billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump became President Donald Trump: His “American First” immigration policies resonated with an electoral majority of voters.

To boot, emphasized Hume, it’s unclear how effective lockdown policies have actually been, especially when compared to other, more sustainable mitigation strategies.
