I was hoping you'd get my sarcasm. Now I'm hoping you ain't being sarcastic. LOL!
Whichever it is. Stay well and best of luck to you. If I was a millionaire, I'd invite you over for a campfire coffee, just to get a good read on you.
But I have no doubt, you will pound through the sand and come out on the otherside... Always forward! Unless you want to fight twice, for yesterday's sand.

The government doesn't *want* to shut down to this extent, it is going to ruin the economy. Although you are probably right about martial law and that sort of thing coming to the USA shortly!
You might be missing how bad this virus actually is, I think that is what is guiding your emotional state. If we don't take social distancing procedures, hospitals will get overrun and the death rate will be about 20% - 200 times flu.
With the social isolation tips in place, we can flatten the curve and get it to only around 3.5% - still 35 times flu.
Although I can see why you have an issue with lockdowns, at the very least, I hope people try to stop being ignorant about the facts surrounding this virus. Their ignorance could cause deaths, even their own or those they love.
Wrong again Zombie!!!
The "Cold" is a "Condition" caused by like 100+ different viruses.
You realize you are completely misinformed yet you persist with the gibberish? Why?
Your brains do not taste good to me. No amount of salt or sugar will fix this...
Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19.
The common cold, also known simply as a cold, is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract that primarily affects the nose. The throat, sinuses, and larynx may also be affected. Signs and symptoms may appear less than two days after exposure to the virus
OUR WORLD IS in deep trouble. This week on Intercepted: The U.S. government failed to respond quickly to the coronavirus and as it spreads, it is likely to overwhelm the outdated and overwhelmingly privatized health care infrastructure. Author Naomi Klein and Jeremy Scahill discuss the bipartisan ruling coalition that created and supported a health system where profits are more important than public health, how the corporate vultures are circling the crisis, and how ordinary people are rising to help each other.[...]

I believe you are referring too murphy22, his "partner" is in the medical field.
There is a greater fear, and it's not from the virus, it's from freaked out hoarders who watch too much MSM, youtube and Twatter etc.... They will make people suffer more than the virus, because they only care about themselves.
I'm freaked cuz I live with some hard core panickers.
I keep trying to talk sense but NONE of it works.
This # keeps escalating.
He's doing another run on Walmart now. It's like the 5th run today...
I told him "look the stocks are down 3k, it's time to invest and resell the next day to increase your wealth by over 10% in a day!"
He said I'm crazy.
I retorted that IF the market collapsed, money would be worthless anyways so might as well risk it and gain while the irons hot.
He didn't care, was in a huge rush to buy 500$ worth of # no one will ever use or eat. It'll all be waste and he inadvertently is creating the problem rather than solving it.
He sold all his stocks, bitcoins, everything last week when the crash happened and knowingly accepted a 15% loss from fear/panic/hysteria.
I can't win.
I'm really soft and try to avoid confrontation with anyone in real life, I'm rather meek and quiet generally.
I absolutely will NOT argue or raise my voice at him. In fact I won't push at ALL. I live here at his Mercy so will not ruin that by being divisive. I just gotta STFU and go stay in my room I guess....
Speaking of, anyone got a couch your old pal Muzzleflash can crash on? Where we can live happily without fear or terror or anxiety? I'll do chores and I'm super clean lol...
Good grief this has gone way too far....
It makes me so angry
end up like Italy
