    You do know, no one is stopping you from volunteering to support as many unemployed families as you want.

    Just go stand out in front of the unemployment office and ask who wants you to pay for them until they decide it is safe to return to work.

    Keep us updated on all the families you support.

    And we KNOW the models are very accurate. I mean they were spot on when this first began. Oh, wait... never mind.

    That’s some Facebook dad, Rush Limbaugh level of brain dead.

    Nothing is stopping you from snorting a fat line of Covid-19 if it’s not serious.

    We have social welfare systems in place for a reason. When they break down it is a reflection of underfunding and bad policy.

    When 70k people die from a pandemic in six weeks that collapses your fragile Starbucks economy and pushes your healthcare system to the edge of failure it is a reflection that maybe the entire card table needs to be flipped.

    I see a fair amount of guesses and assumptions in here.

    You assume business can’t run if open because soooooo many people will Ben sick and dead, but it’s a guarantee they can operate when the government shuts them down or locks down the people that are able to support the business. Lockdown or not, there’s appx 349 million people in the US that did not get the virus (appx 350 mil population).

    Hospitals are struggling for a multitude of reasons, one of which is bigger than the virus itself and how they get their money. Why would hospitals have to lie about diagnosing people with COVID that don’t have COVID? Money.

    I’m not sure what mass death you’re referring to if people protect themselves. Either don’t go out (your choice), wear proper protective gear (your choice) or potentially expose yourself with nothing (your choice). I agree that maybe the elderly and weakened immune folks should probably lean heavily towards the first option, but no one should be getting forced into any of them.

    Farmers are actually struggling due to the lack of customers because of lockdown, so just because they can physically work doesn’t mean the lockdown hasn’t affected them.

    But, continue to be naysayer and enjoy your lockdown (which you could still do even if opened up).

    But with the virus it's not just you. It's your family, friends, neighbors, and people you don't even know who can also be hurt.

    There's no question that the state has a legitimate interest in stopping the spread of the virus.
