    Politicians under the best of circumstances have to appease their voters by at least looking like they're doing something. The people panic, look to their elected officials and scream "What are you going to do about it"? The multitude of answers to that question have given us all sorts of screwy non sensical laws (about half of gun laws for example).

    There's reason to be concerned. The worldwide death total from this virus is fast approaching that of the daily total from gang violence in Chicago.

    germs! The aliens had no exposure to earth pathogens and were wiped out rather quickly by the germs.
    Read the novel by HG Wells, much better than the movie I saw made in the 50s where they tried dropping an A bomb on the aliens.

    Good point. Look at how many people complain about a "do nothing Congress". We hear that people send representatives to Congress to "do something". In general, we'd be much better off if Congress actually did nothing.

    SICK SICK SICK

    Stopped at Circle K for some coffee, asked the young girl behind the counter about getting some lottery tickets, she wiped her nose with her hand not once, but twice...I told her to forget the lottery tickets, I just paid by credit card at the machine and left. Disgusting.

    THIS is what we are up against. You can close down America for months, but if people don't care, it can't be stopped. The 'slob' factor of humanity.

    Wait till all the spring breakers come back, this could get really ugly.

    I have to say Williamson county was where patient zero for Tennessee was we had about 11 people come down with it.

    But as soon as they found out they closed the entire school system!
    Now Davidson county Nashville has over 100 and our first death.

    Middle Tennessee has a lot of Colleges so we wait and see.

    Good lord almighty. Herd immunity will eventually protect even her and those around her, but my gosh, act like you're aware of the world around you!

    You DO know that these will be the elected leaders of our country in another 30 -40 years, right? As you mentioned, I do frequently walk with a cane which can inflict quite a bit of pain if I were to "lose my footing".

    "To own firearms is to affirm that freedom is not a gift from government...As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust."

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.
