    No. That was a guess at what it could be, either at next advisory, or at landfall (context wasn't clear) But it is not a current recon observation. 

    Thank you. This thread is bouncing and I'm trying to keep up while working lol.

    One thing I am not sure everyone has noticed is that barbers and hair stylists STILL cannot open!  Lebanon is going against the Governor and trying to make their own rules and said they are in yellow immediately.

    And I hope Wolf throws the hammer at them. And this hairstylist bullshit is the ****ing worst. People are dying. Children are developing Kawasaki's disease as a result, and Kristen is concerned because her hair is a little out of sorts? **** her. And **** every hairstylist bitching about it. 

     

    These people would have NEVER been able to make the sacrifices asked of them during the war efforts in the early half of the 1990s.

     

    Anybody who bitches about a haircut while people are dying should have to wait three months after the salons open, and then their heads should be shaved.

    Why did I unignore this? I am so sick of seeing potential snow maps. 

    This. I got banned permanently from the AccuWeather forums years ago for going off about wishcasting, and posting model images that are not supported by reality is no different.

    I personally do not think it is going to get into house invasion issues or highway piracy.  

    I guarantee you it's going to come to that. 

     

    Jim Bakker said it best: #TheCollapseIsComing. Only he was saying it to scare old people and morons into buying buckets of shit that he calls food. I'm saying it because the collapse is ****ing here.

    You forgot a tens of millions of other people dude........

    How about any hourly worker....

    How about anyone in manufacturing.......

    How about fully commissioned sales.

    How about travel industry

    How about the restaurant/bar industry.

    How about anyone that supports the state/govt run systems (hourly). 

    They say they will get a bail out.  Do you realize how many people are potentially represented above??

    Many of us will not get a bail out, and if we don't have a company to come back to work for.....it will not cover the utilities or groceries, so pick one and do without the other (oh, that's assuming we all have our homes paid off and no mortgage.)

    Were doing SOOOO much to truly protect sooo few....

    Not for 1 second do i diminish the loss of ANY life, but, our actions/inaction's etc will have a much farther reaching long term economic impact to the 10's of milions that will not get bailed out in the private sector.....worse yet, they may not have a job/company to come back to. We need our jobs.

     

    I know this will cause me some bashing....don't care.  I'm not going to debate w/ any either.  Its how I feel, and I'm not expecting to have a bunch of likes.  I'm scared shitless right now.  Clients are cancelling so much work....

     

    Some facts to back up what may be deemed narrow minded statements:

    H1N1 cases

     

    Image result for how many died from h1n1 in usa

    Veteran Suicide

    The Department of Veterans Affairs released its 2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report on Friday which showed that at least 60,000 veterans have died by suicide between 2008 and 2017.

    In 2017, more than 6,100 veterans died by suicide, an increase of 2% over 2016 and a total increase of 6% since 2008. During that same time period, the veteran population decreased 18% from 23 million to 19.8 million. 

     

    Global Cancer - 2002

    Leading cause of death (2016) (world)

     

     

    While it is absolutely necessary to protect the citizens most at risk 65+, and those w/ compromised health, but I'm nauseous at what the death toll of businesses will be.....

    How many jobs lost.......

    loss of healthcare as a result....... 

    Save a spot in the food line for me would ya.....

    I've spoken w/ medical professionals, clients, coworkers, and we all think this is crazy and could do much more damage societally then the Covid 19 will ever do. While we differ on the best approach, the millions that you hear that think its overblown, also have underlying fear of losing everything.  Whats the bigger loss in the end? 

    Our society cant handle the run on assistance/food/shelter/healthcare for those affected by what I've stated above.  Just think about it outside of your little circles folks.

    Futhermore, we are now setting a precedent for every other flue/virus to do this all over again.  We cannot sustain this kind of hysteria every year, and many will not sustain this one.  Private sector is scared shitless right now....and we should be.  When the public sector sees the loss in taxes due to unemployment, they too will feel the burn alright.  

     

    Look at the graphs I posted, and study them long and hard before you decide to troll/bash.  No graph above caused mass hysteria or runs on toilet paper FFS.

    50% of all that get NCovid 19. (or already have), will likely not even be reported....Imagine how many had H1N1 and didnt report it....and i have a compromised immune system btw.  

    Watch what you wish for folks......

    Back to the cave.....after I wash my hands.

     

     

     

     

     

    This has Facebook written all over it lol. 

     

    I'll stick with the CDC and the WHO and Infectious Disease experts.

    the downside is 13 people showed up yesterday (just on a whim) and drank 2 1/2 cases of beer and a jar of root beer moonshine. I'm gonna ration booze like i am TP

    I'd ration booze more strictly. You can go wipe your ass with an owl if you absolutely have to.

    If schools were in session all summer, can you imagine the outcry with family vacation plans?

    That alone is why that will never happen. They'll just consider this year a loss and go based off of how graders were at the point of shutdown.

  8. NBA is looking at late June as the earliest to restart. And since they were the first league to experience as positive, and the first league to act, they will be seen as the metric upon which other leagues act. This means the NBA and NHL will likely have the finish to their seasons in the summer through fall, take a month or two off to rest and heal, and then have a very abbreviated 2020/21 season. 

     

    Baseball will likely have to deal with a very short, 90 game or so season, which might not be the worst thing, but that sets us up for the potential for an bunch of underachievers and an over achiever taking advantage of the shortened season. 

     

    A lawyer in England familiar with the English Football Association has stated that they have until April to resume the current football season or it will have to be forfeited. World football, as a whole, I feel is done until next season, as their offseason (North America not withstanding) runs from May-August. 

     

    I think it's time to shut it down. Lockdown the entire country for all non-essentials for eight weeks. If you can work from home, you should. If not, the stimulus is in place to provide you wish coverage. There are too many people in Central PA who are treating this as a vacation and with the nice weather, are posting on social media about their activities, as if this is summer break. This is how this shit will spread. It's time to shut it down, and like Italy, issue forms to everyone who is not sick that authorizes them to go out for food, prescriptions, and essential shit alone. This isn't a vacation. That's how the decision to close the schools becomes rendered useless.
