    It's likely coming here too, I expect travel between cities will be limited thru national guard roadblocks by this time next week. Not sure if they'll tighten it more than that, but I do expect that at a minimum

    The reality is that there is no legal standing for doing this. Expect to see the first lawsuit after the first 1,000 or so are stopped or arrested for some mundane law.

    That’s a strong possibility that will happen, I’m a retired truck driver and my former employer asked if I could return to work part time, after 30 yrs I can’t do the stress and asthma doesn’t help either.

    Either way, if I was a Supreme Court Justice I would strike down every single one of these governors orders executive orders and strip them of their state emergency powers. Needs to happen starting now.

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." - Franklin D. Roosevelt

    At work yesterday they handed us our "papers." They explain that my job is essential during this time of crisis and I am free to travel if the governor decides to shut the state down. Next week we are going to an 80% rate based on call-ins reducing manpower. Also I think they are cutting back on day workers from the temp employment spots. Next month we are dropping further to one week off a month since a good portion of sales are for restaurants. Our retail sales are through the roof. A major retail customer said if needed just bulk ship and they'll handle the labelling.

    Yeah I think the opening statements on this forum are extreme and probably inaccurate. Now is not a time to guess. Let’s use links if we wanna keep this thread going.

    I know at the time he believed the information to be true to be fair to the gentleman, and he was sent the info. We had a conversation with him about it. Just saying

    Yeah I’m not dissing him. There’s a ton of info on the virus. If we’re gonna use it here I’d just prefer a link to back up the point.

    I hope you don’t need to travel Poppa, even domestically. One of the last places I want to be today is on an airplane. Best wishes for you. Be well and stay healthy!

    When this all over”and it will be” we will more than likely go to another crisis, not trying to be a buzz kill but, the government’s federal state and local will be broke, and inflation will hit like a sunami, taxes will increase, and if companies aren’t able to hire unemployment will be through the roof, have many family and friends in this situation, that $2.99 item might be $5.99, and that could go up to $9.99, and of course their favorite cash cow is the gas tax. (The lie will be its temporary)! State and local taxes, sorry! I mean “ FEES “will be on everything essential,I’m hoping anyone laid off, or lost their jobs due to this crisis can get back to supporting themselves and their families, I really hope things don’t go all the way south when this is over, just have to be optimistic that we all can recover from this..

    Frustrating thing is I feel like this could be avoided if the ants (citizens) would just rebel against the grasshoppers (governors & mayors).

    We produce food. The good stuff you nibble on at the restaurant before your meal gets there. I fix the machines that process the food and put it in the bags. No travel except for the occasional training. I was in school one day a week but that is now not happening.

    This is the fifth pandemic scare this century. One of my concerns is that after this, every time a new scare like this pops up, everyone's going to go into panic buying mode, and the government's going to want to start locking people down again. We could see this happen every few years.

    I think much of the world got caught with their pants around their ankles with this. The best outcome from this will be a lesson, the lesson of taking virus's/epidemics seriously and prepare for them much better. Bill Gates is a brilliant man, too bad his TED talk from 2015 wasn't taken more seriously by many governments.
