Small businesses having zero business for 2 months will affect alot of people either way.
    That is just the most absolutely dumbest thing I think anyone can say. Do you know anyone personally that has had it??!!?? I had it and John Farley (Type 3 Toys) had it. I was quarantined for close to 4 weeks in my own house. I did it so others wouldn't get infected. It's what you do in a pandemic outbreak. None of your rights were taken away...none of your freedoms have been taken away. Do you have any what this disease does to people??!!?? Before you go shooting your mouth off get the facts:

    Facts:

    This is a contact disease. Basically touching a surface where someone that has had the disease and has touched could put you at high risk of catching the disease. So that means EVERYTHING!!! must be wiped down after people have touched it. Open cut in your hand or you touching the same area that someone else had touched could mean that when you go to touch your face or rub your eyes...you will get the virus

    People that have lessened immune systems like people that have had cancer or leukemia or other diseases that require daily treatment can catch it from just being in the 6 ft. distancing from you. You have no clue if that person that is right next to you has had or does have cancer or leukemia or other diseases that require daily treatment. So you are basically screwing other people by wanting your so called "freedom" to move around uninhibited. Other people freedoms be damned, actually staying virus free, as long as YOU have YOUR precious freedom.

    What I find most disturbing is the lack of empathy this society has these days for ANYONE but themselves. It is just sickening and is a sign of the times with the POS President we have in office right now. It's only gotten worse.

    PLEASE educate yourself on this disease before entering said foot in said mouth. I speak from experience. I know what this disease does to people. I had it and it's NOTHING I would wish on my worst enemy. It literally saps you of all the energy in your body. To the point you can't even stand for more than 5 minutes. At my worst I couldn't walk more than 10 feet to the bathroom in my house with out being completely exhausted. And the coughing that you experience at some point during the 3 - 4 weeks is the worst thing besides death with this disease. When you can't get any air in your lungs because of the coughing...you wish that you would die. THAT is how bad this thing is. To all the people that spouted off and said it wasn't as bad as people were making it out to be...I wish I could have sent them one of my Covid infested lugi's and see what they experience with the disease. Again, NOTHING I would wish on my worst enemy.

    It is no wonder how you lost friends here on the forum. Might want to learn a little bit about some empathy towards your fellow HUMAN when we are in a time of crisis like we are now. This disease will KILL over 130,000 people by the time the 2nd wave comes in September and October with the new flu season. No vaccine in sight. No way of treating it besides Tylenol and quarantine. So you are DAMN RIGHT we should tread with caution...and if that means leaving some business still closed, then so be it. Too many people worried about their damn "Freedoms" and not worried about HUMAN BEINGS. Just makes me angry when people have NO CLUE about what they are talking about. Maybe if this happens to you or someone you love you may get a different perspective on WHAT IS HAPPENING right here and right now.

    I have had several friends get it. thankfully they all recovered but this is no joke.

    my sister works in a doctors office, dialysis or something like that. some selfish ***** who knew she was positive went in there anyway without telling them and now all of the staff was exposed as well as several other patients. that kind of selfishness is totally unacceptable. we all have to make sacrifices right now. it IS for the greater good. not just our own needs and wants.

    glad you are better Roberto

    There ain't no good guy there ain't no bad guys there's only you and me and we just disagree. 🎶

    As an essential worker I wouldn't be working if I was concerned. But still what makes me more special that I couldn't get sick but other people could? People on unemployment are making $900 a week, essential workers are making whatever their wage is, and small businesses are closed. It's madness.

    We all love vintage toys and pop culture and I hate poisoning the well with borderline political debate but I also feel the way I do and I'm stubborn and Irish so it is what it is.

    My walk down memory lane when it comes to Covid 19 will be having it, losing a month of my life to it and coming out the other side grateful that's all I lost from it.
    Probably the other thing I will remember is how half of the country pulled together and the other half behaved like selfish untitled children.
    If this virus has done anything besides kill, it has revealed who we are, just as your post revealed who you are.
    I won't be needing a mask to remind me of 2020 and Covid 19.

    I'm not making $900 a week and I am on unemployment right now. I was only at my job for about 2 months before I got sick and was quarantined. I was unemployed for the year before. So unemployment takes whatever you make in that year from when you stopped working and before and divides it by 26 weeks. That's how unemployment has always worked. Also, that extra money, $600, that people are making will be gone at the end of July. It will not be renewed. So basically the people that are collecting that are getting the extra money won't be getting it come August 1st. So there is that. BTW, I was an essential worker that worked for a company that made crowd control items...but I got Covid from the very job I HAD to go to work for. Nobody will be compensating me for what I may get in the future from having had Covid. I may have blood clots right now in my lungs or close to my heart and not know. All that said...I will STILL go out with a mask, when I go out, and I am not returning to my job because I don't feel safe going back to it. I know from talking to friends that are still at the place that they have not improved on anything in the facility to PROTECT their workers. Right down to the punch in clock that uses finger print analysis which is how I got covid...the punch in clock was never cleaned like they were telling us to clean our areas before we started work and after we finished work. Again, it is a contact disease. Once you can understand that then you can see why there are shutdowns/lockdowns here in the US.

    In 2 weeks we will see how states are doing when it comes to new cases and death. All the states that re-opened early...it will be as bad as it was here in NY. It's why we took the longest to even THINK about getting back to some sort of normal. We have a Governor here that actually gives a crap about the people he serves. 90 straight days of press conferences to keep people up to date with what is happening. THAT is a leader...not like the schmuck that is in the Whitehouse. Sorry to get political...but that's what discussions like this breakdown into. I will leave this discussion with a quote from a Star Trek movie that everyone has seen...I never thought I would use this but it makes sense:

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one. That's why everything is shutdown or sheltered in place. It's not rocket science.
