Correct and/or/but this line of thinking pisses me off. Nobody's asking the government to take care of us. But the government does need to do a few things that are 100% in their purview: disseminate quality information and provide leadership. Prepare for closures and disruption. Order closures where applicable. Our local and state leaders look to the federal leaders for guidance; if that guidance is stupid, conflicted, or nonexistent, the people on the ground are less likely to take practical steps. And so hey we're Italy.

 
Didn't mean to bug ya to paraphrase Bono, but this way of thinking is a core philosophy of mine and always will be.  One thing I can guarantee you is that personal responsibility, independence and self sufficiency will never contribute to societies ills, they will only help.

They don't have to be mutually exclusive.   Governments can and should help limit the spread and support your "realm management" protocals.  Consumed...no, just looking for a bit of help from a stable genius and his wonderful, brilliant, rotating staff.

China is getting back to normal after about 2 months.  Other Asian countries have things under control.  Patriots in the greatest nation on Earth, during the greatest economic boom the world has ever seen, are stockpiling beans, rice, and freeze-dried beef.

Instead of planning for meals in the bunker, maybe it's time to get ahead of these issues and pick leaders who might avoid or mitigate these issues. Pouring accelerants on the flames from the golf course via twitter rarely calms people down.

At least you'll have a payroll tax cut and a hotel industry bail-out while you're in hiding.

You can easily work from home, yes?
 
Not as easy (smaller monitor etc.) but I get by. But we don't have much retail traffic (customers in the office) and only 3 humans max. most days. Our social distancing is baked in at this point. Plus it's easier to disinfect the office, so I really think going to the office is a better choice for me. If I get sick with anything, then sure.

A guy was in a couple of weeks ago just sneezing all over the place. Pre-corona, but still. Pissed us all off and we had to shove him out. Over time, we just sort of let people come in and hang out but that's done. There's a little more stringent rule in place about people coming into the back. We say the dog bit someone. Good dog. Kill.


 
Some of my work right now can only be done from home and that meant I moved the rest of the task home, too. I needed to have a radio antenna and gateway set up and connected to the internet. The IT contractor wanted to charge $17K to do a security assessment, even though I had sent the information that I believed showed no security risk. So I attached the antenna to my chimney and set it up at home.

But previously the company IT department totally stuffed up my computer order and, after about a year, I ended up with 3 computers and six new monitors, plus a couple of older monitors. So now I have a pretty good setup to work at home.

Yes.  Good point.  I don't see any replacement or substitute for that.

I worry about my friends who work with seniors in the facilities / retirement communities.  If deaths accelerate in their work places due to coronavirus, how well will these people cope?

I live in the area where 100+ cruise passengers have been sent to A.F.B. for testing and quarantine.

1. Many were not tested before leaving CA
2. If they test positive, they are being transported to local hospitals.
3.  There aren't enough tests for the immediate medical community.
4.  There is not enough protective gear and equipment for local healthcare professionals.


My Mother is 82. As a widow of a disabled vet, she receives medical care through Military TriCare. She is now at a needed doctor's appointment, at the very base where the quarantine is currently underway.

Yesterday, Gov. Greg Abbott stated that the head of H.H.S. assured him that anyone that is not a Texan won't be released into the community. 



You're damn right I'm worried.
