I believe this wave is going to affect us more than the first. In the bigger city areas south of where I am. Law enforcement were ticketing people for not having a mask on while pumping gas into their vehicle.
You better get Chris Reed on the phone and tell him to ramp up his Spidey Senses, find you some equipment. Better yet, start asking everyone and their mother. Even out of state. But you have to find what you need. Because if they are STUPID enough to shut us down again, there are people who just won’t make it. Oh and the stimulus check? Well that’s a bit overdue and won’t be enough to buy an ice cream cone.

Re: 2nd Wave Corona Lockdown?

I worry more about my wonderful wife who has worked hard as an RN her entire adult life. Last 22 years in industry rather hospitals and home health. Her employer has been very rewarding. I would hate to see her lose a significant amount of retirement. She and others deserve better. Taking calls all hours of the day and night after putting in 10 plus hours a day. This year has been a real strain trying to coordinate the positives, the exposures and help keeping production moving. Sure would be a shame.

How are they going to lose a significant amount of retirement?

Well, that's made no sense. Some of those guys need a good healthy shot of TEST TOST TERONE. Seriously, made the woman and the two deputies the most rational in the discussion, or whatever it was supposed to be.

I give them 7/10 for at least trying. It's usually a good thing when the peasants assert some basic rights.

Granted, but a little less hysterical men armed with cell phones.
I still have to give points to the woman and the two deputies. No points given to the defenders of the Con-stee-too-shun.

Re: 2nd Wave Corona Lockdown?

At some point, rational and reasoned discussion doesn't cut it. They asked them politely to leave, they told them to come back with a warrant, yet they wouldn't vacate the premises. The petty tyrants expect everyone to bow down and kowtow to their whims. I'm just glad to see some people aren't doing it anymore.

Yeah, it may not have been the most eloquent way to do it, but in some cases eloquence is a luxury, not a virtue.

Hysterics just doesn't make the hysterical look good. Being firm, and balanced isn't kowtowing to anyone. Spouting the word constitutional doesn't do a thing. Especially when you are facing law enforcement, and they haven't a clue about the constitution, or what is or isn't constitutional. They aren't going to vacate the premises until they finish what they came for, or unless you speak to a superior "correctly" and explain what is going on. We have been here before. This isn't new, this has happened in history recent, and long past. Being upset with military, or militarized police force never really turns out well. I advocate being smart, and being smart is no sin. We can turn up the heat even if we are totally justified, but in the long run we are the ones face down on the concrete with our hands zipped tied. Which isn't a good look, at any speed. One guy should of been doing all the talking, preferably someone (a cool head) who knew what was going on. The rest of the dudes are to shut up. Because in any situation like that you don't need cheerleaders, or amateur constitutional law assistance. The situation has to cool down, in order to have the agents of government leave you alone, and then vacate the premises to hopefully not return.
