Hate to say it Hawk, but your gov. is playing a VERY dangerous game of chicken...
I wish y'all luck.
I think all the governors are in a no win deal. Stay shut and watch the problems that come from that, not just business failures but also mental health. Open and take the criticism and possible health repercussions.

What we are seeing is what I hoped for and that is common sense. The businesses are not just opening, there are rules they must follow to open. Customers are trickling in as they feel the need and comfort with doing so.

Georgia has two hot spots, Atlanta and Albany. Outside of those there is little trouble or spread of the virus. In my area we have had only 61 cases and no deaths. Many who work outdoors never missed a beat and that has helped us get through.

But I think we are seeing the difference in big city, little town played out. In Chicago I have no doubt people have little to no savings and may have to line up for food. But living there is choice and not forced on them. Here we know our neighbors, cost of living is low, and we would never let someone go hungry if we were aware of it.

If we had approached WWI and WWII with the same fear we would all be speaking German. Time to put our big boy britches on and get back to living.

As an update I think Bill Gates just gave a chunk, but his big deal is world health issues and this fits his goals.

Science is objective and empirical within the limits of our present knowledge and understanding. It is also self-correcting over time regardless whether one is Trofim Lysenko, or William Sheldon.

Businesses fail at a rate of 20% per year. An epidemic might increase that to 30%. New ones will sprout from the decay. If United Airlines goes bankrupt (again !) its place will be filled very quickly.
Excellent points and spot on. The weak businesses will be killed off, but they were weak for a reason. The better ones will adapt to online services or something else and survive. Here most restaurants are doing a booming drive through service and staying alive until full service is back.

I'll say this, the single biggest issue is that we were caught TOTALLY unprepared (it was all that other guy's fault, you know, the one that actually created a pandemic response team and hasn't had a lick of say for 3 1/2 years now...) and we are better prepared now. I grew up in the sticks too and I never worried about "city things" either. The difference with this one is things open up and people start traveling, then someone that has no clue they are even infected stops in your town for gas and that virus lives on that pump for 3 days...
For evidence look at what happens when this thing gets into a retirement home. The flu will normall get to a couple, or even a few, folks in a home, but this thing wrecks the house with 10 or 15 or 20 deaths. In your state take a look at Albany, the outbreak there was traced to TWO funerals... two funerals caused what is going on there!!
Also, FTR, WW1 would have likely dragged on much longer if Spanish Flu hadn't ravaged the troops in the trenches, so the virus kinda won there too.
While I'm at it, let it be known right now that I'm certain Florida is cooking their numbers so DeSanto can save face (and money, of course).
Oh, did anyone catch that Anderson Cooper interview of the mayor of Las Vegas? She kept saying "get the casinos opened, these people need their jobs!!!). The question I have for her that AC wasn't bright enough to ask is: What good will it do to open the casinos if no one shows up to gamble? Does she think the workers being there is all it takes for a casino to function?
Ahh, screw it, I'm gonna go shoot up with some Clorox and hit the beach!

Ps: This wasn't meant as an argument against you Hawk, just getting some things off my chest.
I go totally NUTS for WOW! VAMs!! Or is that from WOW! VAMs?

I am not going to get into the politics, science, or economics of this here. I do so extensively elsewhere. But I would advise that if you hold gift card balances for Sears, Penney's, Macy's and just about any other store, use them now in their online marketplaces while they are still worth anything. Many of them would have been lucky to see 2021 as it were. This crisis seals it. The only certain survivors are Amazon and Walmart. I suspect Amazon will eat up those large department store mall spaces in the very near future to establish an on-premise challenge to Walmart.

I don't see where I "blamed the president" for anything, but I'd love to dig into the psychology that led you to see that in my post...

Rob,
I seem to remember that you used to have normal looking teeth.
Did shooting up with Clorox give you those evil looking teeth?
:D

It is interesting to me that a coin site has such interactions. It is also interesting to me from a social perspective. Hope all is well with everyone regardless of your opinions.

Alan this post and other like it should have been shut down & deleted long ago.

This site should be about the technical/esoteric aspects of VAMs, not some of the quackery that has been posted.

The recent Cult of Personality has given voice to many.
