This was 4-5 days back. Most people are just fine, and deal with the temporary situation.
    A manager of a local supermarket told a customer with a trolley load of baked beans etc that the limit was two cans etc a person. Customer arced up and ended up throwing cans at manager, which hurt when they connected. When customer ran out of cans, manager informed him that new limit was zero cans and zero everything else in his trolley, "So f**k off out of my store!". Which the customer eventually did.

    Some disgusting incidents of customers spitting on staff and otherwise demonstrating that a tiny proportion of the population are complete ar**holes who should be rounded up and rooted with the rough end of a rooting pineapple until they see reason.

    Who would have thought that kids working in supermarkets would become essential service workers facing the daily risk of coronavirus infection, and employed to disinfect everything in sight as minimum wage casual workers?

    As you say TG, most people are fine. But, as usual, it's a small proportion of the population who stuff it up for the rest of us.

    Bad news on the Circuit Judge. My state's government has been alarmed by a doubling of applications for a permit to acquire a gun (28 day wait in theory, much more in practice) in the past week, so today it's shut down gun and ammunition sales. Possibly not a major disaster as the Circuit Judges for sale are fairly rare and there wasn't one immediately for sale in my state.

    On the gun availability issue, guess who's got more guns than people like me with gun licences, and who's more likely to use them for illegal purposes, and who's most likely to be using them against defenceless and law abiding citizens if this all turns to massive sh*t? No prizes for the obvious answer.

    In my City, the Spring Primary Elections were held this past Tuesday, At first the State Governor had wanted to postpone them until June. However, the State Supreme Court overruled him as he does not have that authority. so, the in person voting did take place as usual. Those who didn't want to go to the polling place, were able to vote Absentee via mail. No problems noted at the Polling places, I went early, when few people were there. done in 5 minutes. I did keep a well folded paper towel to my face while there. the Poll workers had masks, and gloves.
    From the latest news, Wisconsin is about to show a drop off of cases, so looks like things may be improving sooner than expected. Hope this goes for the whole of the world.

    I saw that, politicians were never credited with intelligence, eh?

    Anyway, things are going well enough in Texas land, university switched to online classes which makes things like group work a lot harder. I don't miss the hour drive every day though, so that's a plus. Shelves are still stocked but prices have increased as expected. Fish has at least doubled in price.

    I'm not sure about things going better soon, Spanish Flu lasted 3 years in 2 huge waves, and I don't see this going much shorter.

    Currently in Wisconsin, the Governor's Declared State of Emergency expires on 4/24. He Decided to extend it another 30 days till 5/24, and issued the Executive Order. That created a problem, as under Wisconsin Law and it's Constitution, A Governor may unilaterally declare a State of emergency for a variety of reasons. This State of Emergency does have a time limit of 60 Days, and expires at the end of Day 60. In order to Lawfully extend any State of emergency, the governor must Petition the State Legislature seeking permission to extend it, and they may by Joint Resolution, either grant, or refuse the Petition. The power to extend lies solely with the Legislature. That said, the governor ignored the law, and illegally extended the Order. This has caused a large problem for the Legislature, and they are , as they should, decrying the action, and it is now in the hands of the State Supreme Court. I do not believe that the court will allow the extension. As it stands, the Order will expire at the end of the 60 Mandated Days, and that will be that, begin to wisely,and with reason, reopen the State.

    Texas is beginning to reopen. Bexar County (San Antonio and satellite cities) has a population of 2+ million. Of those 1100-1200 confirmed cases, 42 deaths. It's difficult not to think that this is not overblown. (Not that I'd want to contract it.) I've had to work during the "stay home, stay safe" orders althougth I'm a homebody by nature.

    A fairly ****ing offensive statement for the over 50,000 dead and counting in this country. I think the refer tractor trailers outside of hospitals full of bodies in NYC sort of belie that notion that this was "overblown". We didn't reach the epoch some predicted because of social distancing working well and people complying unexpectedly well, but of course, the idiot governors in places like Georgia are going to pay in the end for opening when their deaths are just peaking. As far as opening, I'm personally fine with it if we acted more like places like Germany and South Korea and sans a cluster**** federal response and we actually had testing in place by now.

    No offense to anybody.
    When these measures were put in place, it seems the estimated American deaths was 2.2 million. That's why these strict measures were put in place, right? Then it dropped to 500,000, then 220,000, then 150,000, then 90,000, then 60,000. At what point do you ask why the continued measures need to stay in place ad infinitum? Some states are quarantining until June.

    I'm not sure where you are getting the "2.2M" stat from. The US only? The entire world? No social distancing at all?

    According to "Statnews". the projection last month (March) was 100,000. I think the highest death projection I can find is about 240,000 Americans might die. But keep in mind, this will comeback.

    And we're above 50,000 now, but that doesn't include the people found read in their homes and the total world deaths may be under-counted by around 40,000...

    It seems a bit like CATO-cherry-picking red herrings, highlighting a study that I am guessing assumed no social distancing, though accurately predicting the actual fatality rate for the infected. It wasn't the one used by policy makers though they're trying to imply something. But perhaps the CATO Institute could tell us how many would die if we did not lockdown much of the population? Is the study "overblown" if 2.2 million die with no social distancing restrictions? which at the going rate of 55,000 dead in the midst of a tight lockdown doesn't seem so unrealistic...

    The actual numbers put out by the gov'ts (Federal and state) were 240,000 in the high side, and about 100,000 in late march. And quite frankly, we won't be done counting bodies until the second wave is over, and this may well go on into 2022 as the Spanish Flu of 1918 went into 1920...

    Maybe CATO should hold themselves more accountable with their "Death Panels" hysteria piece: https://www.cato.org/publications/co...coming-our-way

    But hey! Maybe killing old people is okay if it saves the economy!

    1) Australia start this panic buying with toilet paper. Now it's gone back to normal.

    2) be careful, some *****s with corona will deliberately try to infect you and others.

    Erie County has begun reopening and Phase II should start this Tuesday with all retail, construction, and hair salons (thank God, I need a cut!) opening. Restaurants remain take-out only for at least another two weeks, and I cannot wait to go to a bar (but only with proper social distancing of course!)!!

    Yeah, we have purchase quotas here but everything is generally available although there is a fear that meat and poultry prices might go up. But I haven't noticed any major shortages of that...

    2) be careful, some *****s with corona will deliberately try to infect you and others.
    What? LOL I haven't heard any of that. We have had arseholes spit and cough at police after being picked up for things like drunk driving (seriously all the bars are closed, you have to be a complete ****wit to be driving drunk from drinking at home!). Those that do this are now liable for felony assault and battery!

    We have quotas on meats at the grocers I've been to down here. Limit 5 items total of beef and pork.
