    We know what not to do. And that's to open up everything.

    ...until November 5th and then open it all up, amirite?

    Do you even have a job? My company and many others are hanging on a thread. If you don't open things up ASAP, you are looking at permanent job losses in the 10s of millions.

    Just a guess that he is retired and staying home doesn't affect him.

    Wait a minute, I'm retired and I hate staying at home. That said, wear a F'ing mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing as much as one can and open up the country. I was in a local Publix today with my wife and 99% of shoppers had masks on. One lady and her son were roaming around with a F you attitude until the store manager got hold of her, walked her over to the pharmacy area and she had the choice to buy a mask or leave. She bought the mask, put it on and went about her shopping. Wearing a mask is a local ordinance and there is a BIG sign at the entrance stating this.

    We have been required to wear a mask for a week now. 1 more week and if things don't level out, open up completely and let the cards fall where they will.

    ... and those who re-opened on May 2 (too soon).

    We know exactly where the cards will fall. Why do you want to destroy the economy? Do you hate Trump that much?

    But keep washing your hands and wear a mask. As I said before, I don't give a rats asp about someone getting their family ill because they won't/don't wear a mask, just don't subject mine to it.

    Shutdowns are hurting the economy, you know this! Your extensive research on everypost you make should have you at that conclusion.

    If that what makes you feel safe I wish you well. If you don't want to risk going out, your choice.

    Probably not. But we might start a rational phased opening if we do it the right way.

    I hope you understand that this is not a choice.

    I have a company to run. And this has hit my bottom line tremendously. I have had to reduce my staff. But if people don't stop acting like idiots we might not be in a condition to open for another year.

    Really and truly pray that your family stays well. Wear a mask, wash your hands social distance and be respectful of those around you.

    if Trump doesn't allow vote by mail, there will be no choice sadly

    tell Trump to change his re-open guidelines if you want to open up sooner

    Wrong! Covid 19 is hurting the economy. And reopening too soon is making it much worse.

    I do all those things. My point was if after 2 weeks the cases don't go down then really how much good did it do?

    But if people don't stop acting like idiots we might not be in a condition to open for another year. AND that's the big challenge. As I said on post 11 "But keep washing your hands and wear a mask. As I said before, I don't give a rats asp about someone getting their family ill because they won't/don't wear a mask, just don't subject mine to it."

    No, if people can't work there is no economy.

    Then the next question would be how much worst would it had been if we hadn't?

    The "experts" said this is what we have to do. If it doesn't work then nobody knows what to do so therefore we have to go back to complete normal.

    I am good with that. I have never washed my hands more in my life. And I noticed I have to pee everytime I do, weird.
