Scenes out of Harrisburg PA make me chuckle a bit. I don't know man...I don't know 

PA is really the Alabama of the east coast.

A question about ones right to assembly vs an executive order to maintain social distancing while such protest, by there nature, violate such executive orders brings up a lot of really interesting constitutional debates.. I am actually really sad that the governors havent attempted to stop the demonstrations by use of force/ arrest

That would play right into their hands of the "help, help I'm being oppressed".

Until now I hadn't had any family get it...but now my uncle (and the other three occupants in that house or whatever it is) got it in this facility he's had to stay in the past couple months, smh And he's in that at risk age group and has an underlying condition (Parkinson's)...No fever, but just coughing. Folks, you just never know when it'll hit close...praying that their cases don't get any worse!

I'd let them protest, but fine them for violating social distancing protocol.  The states need the revenue from the sudden loss of parking tickets and sales tax receipts!

My grandfather organized several marches throughout the deep south in the 60s where he marched along side MLK.. he was locked up more times than not.  It did wonders for his cause!   We still have the pictures of him getting maced and attacked by police dogs.  I was 4 when he died (probable mafia hit).. everyone tells me I am exactly like him.  I wish I knew him.

Looking at these people I imagine there must be a lot of overlap with anti vaccers.

It's the carousal of anti-government twiddlef*cks.

It’s an interesting legal question. Idk. Historically, gov has been allowed by the courts to use broad powers to curtail freedoms during emergencies. Personally, I wouldn’t be putting first responders in harms way by engaging with these people.

Oil is plunging to $1.03 a barrel. Wow.

Seems like I missed my chance to buy in on the lowest part of dip for COVID-19... might try and find a way to profit off this a little bit. Maybe $USO?

The revolt by the  thirteen colonies could have been considered an emergency by the British.. and it wouldnt have made any difference

Its a tough one to "support" i agree one has the right to protest, and i get the frustrations, but how about everyone just stay in their cars, honk a lot and then go home. this gathering in groups, stupid signs and guns are just not needed.

Yup. First lady was on hand to greet the shipment.  Pretty big ball spike to the Feds, IMO.

Yeah, I agree.  I don't really "support" what they're standing for (and it sure looks to be a lot more than just a simple dislike of being forced to stay inside!  Guns and racist signs...really?).  And in a normal circumstance I wouldn't much care about them protesting as such even if I don't like what they stand for.  If a virus or other significant health issue weren't involved, I'd just roll my eyes at them and shake my head.  Because they wouldn't be harming anyone else just by being there spouting off whatever their message is.  That's really the significant difference here...they could potentially harm anyone else around them.

Very true, and I'm sure they don't really care and think this is all a sham, even if that's wrong.  Doesn't change the fact that they present a potential hazard...

This is an important item to note.  I'm really glad Hogan did this and we are able to isolate and contain emerging areas of concenr to facilitate and easier "opening up".

I agree with you, just saying... they don't care. thats why they are doing it how they are.

LOL, I know...and I guess I'm agreeing with your agreement, haha!  Sorry to get a bit in a circular or repetitious discussion there!  Preaching to the socially distanced choir, I suppose! :lol:
