Russia and North Korea nipped this shit in the bud before it even started. They don't have public gatherings unless it is a celebration of the state.

And not much to celebrate in Russia and North Korea.

US domestic air travel sees 'virtual shutdown' as more restrictions are being discussed

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/19/politics/domestic-travel-restrictions-virtual-shutdown/index.html

But there are problems with that:

"Such a drastic move domestically could further cripple the nation's economy, and have negative effects such as preventing the flow of cargo, making it harder to ship medical supplies and other essential goods."

Cargo needs

"One of the factors keeping planes flying right now is the role that aviation plays in moving goods across the country.
"If airplanes don't fly, cargo doesn't fly," one administration official said. "We have to keep the transportation network up and running."
=======================================

If Amazon or Ebay had to shutdown it would a complete disaster.

It is getting to the point that the only non-essential workers might be working on a golf course. Or movie theatre.

Damn you odin, I looked all over the basement for my old BTO records and couldn’t find them. But I found some sweet John Mayall albums so I’m listening to those instead.

Ahh. La Pipe is real sex. I see. I always thought so. I seemed to recall some some saying " I did not have sex with the woman. " several years ago. I guess he did not get the message about La Pipe.

#2115 68 days ago

This has been Circulating among my owner operators (truck drivers) to drive up freight rates.

Totally false news! Although rates are up.

I hope I have enough weed. If not it’s time to clean out and take a break.

#2121 68 days ago

My question is have they passed the enhanced unemployment benefits yet?

#2122 68 days ago

The Pennsylvania governor just ordered all non-life sustaining busineses in PA to close at 8PM tonight. Enforcement to begin midnight Friday/Saturday by state and local police. I imagine there will be a court fight over that, as his powers may not include the ability to make this order.

Quoted from wolfemaaan:

This is the best video I’ve seen all week. And while I’m not generally a fan of the Gen Z’rs, they are right about this one. I think they should keep partying and F authority who pretend they have a valid plan to stop this

I get it. Theyre young and want to party it up. Unfortunately, they're also Morons with thought processes shallower than their shot glasses. Ignorance is not something we should be celebrating or cheering on.

Theyre not exactly fighting the good fight and from the most recent reports, they're not as immune to this shit because of their age as they might think they are.

#2124 68 days ago
Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

I wonder the pot shops in Colorado have had to close down. Man , with their stuff this is no "down to seeds and stems" that you can rifle through. It is just gone. Pfft.

#2125 68 days ago

That's one thing I'm not short on. Thanks to my buddy's clones and mother nature here in So Cal.

I wonder what they do in the cases where someone has to be on a job that is not life saving? My job is not a life saving job but someone has to be there because there is equipment that cannot be turned off and it has to be monitored.

Are you trying to live vicariously through theirs? If it's such a great idea go join them. You're not gonna get a lot of support for that level of stupidity on here.

#2130 68 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Yes I was a kid and I was wild as fuck but if something this serious would have happened I would have been respectful of the older people who are at risk and I would have done my part as a U.S. citizen to help get rid of this virus. I have always respected my elders.

You have to understand the youth's (Genz and Mil) perspective. As a Gen Xer I sit back with interest and curiosity as I am not a target of their angst, the baby boomers are. A lot of them want accelerationism. They don't want to live in these times any longer and they absolutely do not relate to boomers whom rely on legacy corporate media (FoxNews, Abc, MSNBC, etc.) for their information. They actually recognize those media firms to be mere propaganda wings of the DNC and RNC, which in all honesty, they are. They want nothing to do with the establishment parties (see growing support for more "extreme" candidates), where as many boomers put party before country. I digress. As I mentioned, they want accelerationism as they feel we live in "clown town". They want to hit the reset button on both sides of the isle for varying reasons. In fact on many forums they are hoping for the corona virus to be "the happening". They are praying it doesn't become a "nothing burger". They are tired of the baby boomers. Below are examples of memes of which you will find a plethora of on the internet.

Again, don't flame me. I'm just telling you their perspective.

There's a very long list of what kinds of businesses are exempt. Like steel and aluminum mills can stay open, but metal fabrication and machine shop type places must close. Hardware stores can stay open. It's kind of a trip. You can see the chart at the bottom of the article here:

This isnt about politics or fox news or CNN news, it's about getting through this thing and respecting your elders and doing your part for the good of this country. I'm sure that they dont hate their grandparents and they dont want them to catch this and die so why wouldnt they care about other older people in this country?

I know they are young and dont see things the way older people do but if they cant see the importance of this and if they don't have any respect for older people then they are totally useless assholes to our society.

I think it is like the meme states. They feel the boomers have squander everything out of selfishness leaving them nothing. No jobs, fucked up times, massive debt, etc. The boomers didn't give a fuck about the youth so why would they give a fuck about boomers. In their eyes the boomers did no good (for them), so why should they do good for boomers. I think that's it in a nutshell.

#2138 68 days ago

You and the partiers all live in the same world as the rest of us. If this thing goes completely of the rails, it isnt going to be bad just for the over 40 crowd. You and all those spring breakers will feel it too. For better or worse, we're all in this one together.

I dont understand at all. Before this happened there were tons of jobs and there will be once this is over too.

What have boomers did to anyone that was wrong? All the boomers that I know have worked their asses off their whole lives and paid their own way through life without asking for handouts. Most boomers that I know are still hard workers even right now. I'm not q Boomer for the record but I really look up to the boomers.

#2140 68 days ago

Maybe this should be on That Pinside bitch thread, but anyway here goes.
My Gen-Z daughter has been trying to talk me into allowing her to go visit her boyfriend this weekend (that now lives in another state).
Everyone in my office is now telecommuting remotely for the next three weeks, and today my Gen-Z co-worker asked me if I had any big exciting plans for the weekend.
In both cases, the answer "Oh, Hell No!" just kinda popped out.
Me... Shaking my head.

#2141 68 days ago
Quoted from wolfemaaan:“You know you young people! Begone with youth, I’ve always been a 89 year old grumpy from Ohio even when I was 16”

I was an uninformed, sheltered, small town moron at that age. I imagine back then I would have possibly taken a similar view.

The world was a lot smaller 40 years ago though. Three TV networks and print news. I could give myself a pass on not realizing how serious something was to the planet.

Today? iPhones? Social media? 24/7 info? These kids are fucking morons...that Desantos guy is the bigger effing moron though for allowing this shit. We have idiots and zealots in charge in a lot of places...looking at you Texas and the other 5 states that haven’t restricted anything.

I don't think they buy the herd mentality unless it is for immunity...lol.

Boomers list of things to lose:
1. Life
2. Pensions and retirement accounts
3. Businesses
4. Peers/friends
5. Jobs

Youth list of things to lose:
1. Get sick for a week unless you are an exceptional case
2. Potential senior family members
3. Low paying jobs unless they got lucky and landed a career (of which most were exported by boomer CFO's)

This how life works, not much when your young and work hard and have 1-5 on your list, just 3 months ago I was hiring someone at a living wage with benefits and could basically find no one. And I’m not Boomer, a btw.

Well the Mayor of Chicago just announced if you're sick and/or exhibit the signs of being sick and you're out in public without proof of intent to seek medical assistance "there will be consequences."

Ordering anyone with any symptom to self quarantine.

This maybe your assumption but on forum boards they frequent there is a lot of interesting viewpoints that you will not get in the legacy media and they are definitely not one-sided. True anonymity allows them to speak there minds without recourse from the thought police. Sort of the last bastions of free speech. Some posts are quite childish in nature (often for comedic or satirical value), some hateful but overall most are quite insightful. Unfortunately, free speech doesn't protect you from hurtful speech or speech you may not agree with. They do a ton of research as they hunger for more information and alternative outlooks other then the current mainstream propaganda outlets provide.

I think the problem maybe that you find anyone that doesn't adhere to your philosophy is a moron, which is evident in a majority of your posts. Perhaps a little tolerance and understanding of other's perspectives may be helpful.
