Exactly the intelligence, or lack thereof, of the typical liberal.
    They'll just let all the other inmates go. Only people allowed in jail will be quarantine breakers.

    InTexas we have the State Troopers on all border checkpoints with Louisiana.
    Stopping all vehicles taking names and ID. Informing them that in Texas they will need to self quarantine for two weeks and finding out where they are staying.
    Not sure if they are checking in on them, do they have the manpower.
    Yes it is comical how many liberals are coming to the conclusion that border security matters

    COVID-19 had already killed far more New Yorkers than 9/11 did. It's an emergency situation, and government takes strong actions during emergency situations that it normally wouldn't.

    I'm not going to get bent out of shape over checkpoints during an emergency. It has no bearing on what happens afterwards, it's not a precedent, it's not new powers for government. The power being exercised now has existed in every state from the beginning of history. The key is that it must go dormant again after the emergency passes, and so far I've seen nothing to make me worry about that.

    How long before the criminal element figures out that LEO's aren't in their usual neighborhoods? Seems like a recipe for disaster.

    I'm on the edge of the at risk group, so the wife and I would've tried to stay put regardless. But the reactions by "all" of the powers to be makes me more uneasy than the virus.

    I think Trump had it right on his first response, then the TDS/MSM went BSC and he was forced to take this path or risk all he has attained so far.

    Remember Bill Mahr and other Never Trumpers were rooting for a recession just a few months ago to be rid of Trump. Can we really trust their reactions to anything at this point?

    I'm having a frain bart...wasn't there a bad thing that happened in Berlin during the '30s that precipitated a Nazi power grab? Some building caught on fire or got blown up? I'll be darned if I can bring that to mind. Without remembering the details of that event, manufactured or not, doesn't it seem as though those who lust for power use negative events to seize it?

    Having grown up in RI, in a small coastal town, with a large number of the summer residents, I can understand a little bit how the Rhodies are thinking. While in College I was in the RIARNG and also a reserve officer for the Westerly PD, working full time during the summers. Most of the out of staters properties are in the beach towns.

    1. NY is a hotspot for the virus
    2. Most of these small towns are not equipped to handle this level of emergency.

    My town for instance (Westerly, RI) had a winter population of under 20K, which doubles in the summer. Our local hospital has something like 125 beds (friend of mine back home is a nurse there).

    I suspect that just like other vacation hotspots here's a little bit of class warfare going on. My home town for instance was like a miniature Newport RI, lots of "old" money, complete with summer houses that are mansions by normal standards with maids, staffs, large yachts, etc. There's already the normal amount of animosity for the summer folks, due to increased traffic, summer prices etc.

    Add to it coming early and possibly bringing the virus with them.....There's similar reactions being observed in other locales that are host to large numbers of seasonal residents.

    9/11 was a day where people went to work like normal and thousands of people were murdered because of our freedoms. We have since chipped away at those freedoms. The terrorists won. This is not the same as a virus and the comparisons are absolutely ridiculous. However, if people are so dead set on making them to compare body counts, We lose more people every year to the flu than we have on 9/11, at Pearl Harbor, in Iraq, and Afghanistan put together.
    a poor plan that is well executed will produce better results that a good plan that is poorly executed.

    This is America. I have the right to go places. You have the right to stay home. You have the right to be upset about me going places. I have the right to not care.

    We have the same kind of hostility here. Summer people are treating this as a vacation! The summer people are even Carping that their sumer maid service won't come and clean for them! DR

    Unfortunately there are many gun owners who will still shop at Wal Mart even though they know Wal Mart partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety just because it is convenient and they can save a few bucks.

    Rule No. 1 of Conspiracy Theories.

    If it's actually happening its no longer a theory.

    It's a reality.

    We need to seek out a reliable source for signs proclaiming our property is MINED - such as @OldVet uses to keep the miscreants at bay.

    Looks like it's catching on:


    https://www.wsj.com/articles/tourist...ns-11586165401

    From Sedona, Ariz., to the Florida Keys, tourist spots across the country are trying to figure out ways to keep outsiders from bringing the new coronavirus with them. In some cases, that means taking aggressive steps like banning people who own second homes from their own property. In other cases, it means shutting down key access points. Full-time residents in these communities say their health-care systems weren’t built to handle pandemics and shutting out visitors is the only way to avoid disaster.
