The Purge is happening

I was wondering what that alarm was....
annoying as heck


That wasnt an alarm. It is the sound of tens of thousands of school kids singing
🎶 No more pencils, no more books.
Spring break just got extended.

Yes, my oldest nephew throws "ok, Boomer" around all the time. Parlance for old which makes it annoying to this Xer.


Extremely annoying and she knows that and does it anyway.

It’s been reported (though not confirmed) that the President is to announce a “State of Emergency” exists due to the COVID-19 outbreak at a press conference scheduled for 3PM (Eastern) today.

Waiting until AFTER the stock market (which is showing modest gains at the moment) closes for the weekend.

If report is accurate, Buckle Up, Folks!

My company implimented "work from home" for all employees today to test that the corporate networks can hold up to +20,000 working from home. So far there haven't been any issues. I wonder how many other large corporations are testing their networks?

It reads like classic doom porn. Right down to a mini resume of the leading players. LOL.

I was at the store this morning.

Everything was stocked, no lines, everyone was pleasant and nice.

I still shot 4 people and screamed a lot, but yeah.

Was just a typical day.

The US Federal Government can not shut down cities or quarantine areas....this us specifically a States right under the "policing", a massive curtailment of liberty workd be the case to follow...l look at the "Equal Protection"


I think that this is where the national emergency act comes in play.

The president must present to Congress a detailed plan of action and list the laws and rights that would be included in such a national emergency.



§1621. Declaration of national emergency by President; publication in Federal Register; effect on other laws; superseding legislation

(a) With respect to Acts of Congress authorizing the exercise, during the period of a national emergency, of any special or extraordinary power, the President is authorized to declare such national emergency. Such proclamation shall immediately be transmitted to the Congress and published in the Federal Register.
(b) Any provisions of law conferring powers and authorities to be exercised during a national emergency shall be effective and remain in effect (1) only when the President (in accordance with subsection (a) of this section), specifically declares a national emergency, and (2) only in accordance with this chapter. No law enacted after September 14, 1976, shall supersede this subchapter unless it does so in specific terms, referring to this subchapter, and declaring that the new law supersedes the provisions of this subchapter


Now I specifically focused on this part and am curious as to how this could be interpreted.



No law enacted after September 14, 1976, shall supersede this subchapter unless it does so in specific terms, referring to this subchapter, and declaring that the new law supersedes the provisions of this subchapter.


.gov

I am not claiming to be a Constitutoonal scholar by any means. I have looked into the National Emergency Act a little bit. If this does not pertain to the situation, can someone point me in the right direction to learn about the emergency act.

It would seem to me that all the President(any president) would need to do is present his case to Congress with complete means and ways to carry out the declaration. Then Congressn would have to vote on it according to the laws at hand.

I have yet to read where Constitutional rights can not be amended or temporarily amended with a complete layout of the plans according to the amendments rules and regulations.

After all isn't this why we have our branches of government?

Like I said, from what I read it entails a great amount of work and Constitutional knowledge to get these types of things done.

I would also like to state that I do not think that this virus is serious enough to act upon it like stated.

I shop every day. Or maybe every two days.
We stock staples only. Not TP. One package of six rolls at a time.
Thats about two weeks worth. Paper towels too. Thats a four pack that will last three weeks.

I cook and I do stock staples like sugar flour and other baking supplies, every imaginable herb or spice, canned tomatoes dried beans, rice etc...
I have a selection of about three or four boxes of pasta.
A few bags of frozen vegetables.
Everything else is fresh.
Meat, fish, produce.

Here too. And spring has settled in nice and cozy. Budding trees and azaleas and camellias.

I am looking forward to having the beach free of tourists this summer if this holds up.
I dont sell ice cream or souvenirs or run a hotel.

I’ve also heard this from several people in the know and asked about it in the mega thread.

If anyone hears anything else about it, post it. I’m about to stock up on groceries just in case.


I live in downtown Seattle (South Lake Union neighborhood), and I'm hearing just that too, but for WA and CA states... unsure about the rest of the country.. My gf also works for Swedish Hospital on 1st hill and is hearing that at her job.. so i dunno what to believe.. the stores around Seattle are constantly empty as the grocery chains struggle to have the shelves restocked.. interesting times we live in.. but i dont see how they could do a hard quarantine here if people arent adequately prepped.. i could see them imposing a "one person out at a time from any household" rule to get food and stuff, but unsure how heavy this quarantine could be... also, im hearing its happening on monday. I'm trying to stock up early tomorrow morning

Cancellations are different than telling people who aren't suppled for it to stay in their homes starving.

They won't take that step unless an area looks like Italy, Iran or Wuhan. And I would bet that they will localize it so they can enforce it and hope to keep people under that quarantine supplied.

Is that clearer for you?

are they now?
tell that to the venue, the parking attendants, the ticket takers, the concession workers, beer vendors, souvenir shop workers ect....you get the idea
not to mention the companies that paid for the ad time for the televised event....
totally different right???

This would have presented an issue to me back in the day when I had kids who needed day care while I worked.
I can understand the hardship it might present.
If the daycare centers stay open. ( they wont) they will have to charge for the hours that your kid would normally be in school and they are not cheap to begin with.
Maybe I should advertise as a babysitter. I could even offer cooking services so mom and dad come home to clean kids and a hot meal. My stock portfolio is looking like it has some kind of virus right now. I could use the extra income.
