    You continue to ignore the fact that a lot of people don't have this luxury.

    Well the argument here is wouldn't it be nice to live in a society where someone wasn't forced to put their life at risk to stock shelves at Walmart? Wouldn't it be cool if instead of bailing out failing companies, we put that money toward keeping people safe and healthy during a health crisis? Lick those boots.

    A mask and gloves?
    Then stay at home. That’s the next protective measure.


    You’re bringing a separate issue into how this could or should be opened up. Absolutely agree the government shouldn’t be bailing out companies, but they also shouldn’t be the reason small businesses need bailed out.

    Close Walmart. I agree, if everyone is on lockdown, close it down. Walmart is not essential.

    They don’t have to work at WalMart. They just have to live within their means until they can establish some credit. Then they have to be willing to risk it all in a business venture.

    no successful entrepreneur or business owner ever says it was pure luck. They ALL say it was hard work and sacrifice. And 99.9% of this country supports hard working individuals that sacrificed luxury early to succeed later. That’s the American dream. But nowadays it’s a popular sentiment to hear people say my neighbor has that so I “deserve” it also. Without any regard what it took to get that.

    but I digress. Take care of yourself and your loved ones and there is no need to infringe upon anybody’s first amendment right. The ignoramuses can’t hurt you if you do that.

    Spot on sir! Have a friend of mine that thinks he is owed something from someone else, who is constantly complaining and never making that sacrifice. That sacrifice that you speak of is real. I put in 14 hour days working and going to school for nearly a year with no days off. That netted me nearly $15,000 more a year. Plan on doing it again soon! This Rona is stepping on people’s rights! Wild to me that people don’t seem to understand that people are losing their livelihood. Quarantine the sick, self quarantine if you have pre existing disease, and open this Country up! I think it’s pretty interesting that people think if we hunker down longer, Rona will disappear. It’s a pipe dream! Rona is here to stay.
