    That is exactly it. unless you are in what they consider an important position
    you have been ordered home. many places are putting in stay at home orders.

    other businesses have shut down completely and closed. those closures have forced people
    into layoffs.

    maybe this stimulus bill they can bring people back on for payroll but that is still a wait and see.
    facts don't care about your feelings.

    The risk is, if you give the false impression of safety, and cases start to go back up dramatically, it will lead to another great depression. A Tweet from our dear leader on February 24th:

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Before the cold, flu and Covid-19 season starts.
    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    My son won't be camping out this weekend thanks to Idaho Governor shutting down the state. But we can go shopping for food. Idaho has zero deaths.
    The criticism of Trump to say it mildly is not relevant. The man performs his office magnificently. Take a racer at the 500 Indy race. The driver may have womanized. May have boozed and gambled. May have never voted. But man can that driver race.
    Trump is like the winner of the Indy 500.
