Exactly how crowded are State Parks and why are they closing? This shit is really getting out of hands...even BLM land?! Are they trying to teach Americans new tricks?

Here they closed dog parks, city parks, beaches, most of coastline parks, half of hiking trails around here. There is millions of people with less and less places to go everyday.

Its been so long with closed businesses/parks here, i take drives to other area to "see whats open" its the most excitement in my life. I can literally only walk in circles in this neighborhood seeing the same people day in and day out so many times!

They encourage you to get out and take a walk, and maintain safe distance from others....then they close places that are nice to take walks. There are a couple of state parks we go to, and rarely get within a hundred yards of another person, except at the campsite. And even then, we are 20-30 feet apart.

the reason they are closing the parks is because of those who wont follow the safe distancing recommendations.
the bad apples ruin it for all

I'm with you brother! I've never had a flu shot or any others. I'm seriously thinking of the shingles one but still on the fence. I know people who have/had shingles and it's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Well maybe one or two. lol
I've had shingles and would definitely suggest you get the shot. Shingles is a nightmare.

Enough nasty politics my friends. We don't need this one shut down too. Talking about how the leadership handles the crisis is fine, but let's hot start throwing daggers in this one.

Before we open up the economy again and our social spaces - let’s pay attention to Mexico for at least 3 more weeks or as BB said “30 days”.

Mexico has done very little about this and some of their medical staff are protesting for lack of.. everything. The President is telling everyone it’s a non-thing and promoting hugging and social gatherings. There are reportedly very few closures or restrictions in place to flatten the curve. It’s very possible Mexico will be in a nightmare situation before the end of April.
La Times Covid and Mexico

The video below has a fantastic illustration of exponential growth. The part in the video below about the difference between day 59 and day 60 makes a very strong visual point.

It all comes down to this...
Yup, this guy knows. Once again it's the media. They want to put words in people's mouths, cause anger and hysteria without any real thought.

If I had to chose between old and young people, I chose young every time. Keeping people out of work for so long could drag us back down into a 1930's style depression that would be so much worse than a tiny percentage of old people dying from the flu. People are too dumb to see it. And that problem could be solved just by quarantining healthy old people until a vaccine is found. Those coronavirus tests should be given to nursing home workers.

What's worse, a 90 year old dying from Corona virus, or a 6 year old dying of hunger.

Our Gov finally caved and called for 21 day stay at home order. This BS is overkill. At least I can stay at home in two locations.

So, pro-life only goes so far I see. My 80 year old father and 89 year old father-in-law who are both vets would put a cap in anyones ass that would say that to their face! True patriotism is when we all sacrifice for the common good of the country. Your views are those of communist russia, and have no place in America. No ones life is worth any less than your neighbors, no matter age, creed, race etc. We all have the same rights under our Constitution. There are plenty of countries in this world that have similar views on undesirable segments of society, and NONE are Democracy's!
Better yet, lets follow your ideal and replace the old that die with a new young populous. Would you be willing to lend out your daughter or sister to virile young men just to keep the future economy fruitful? It would be for the greater good after all......

I, for one, am not willing to die for any of you kids. I did my time as a Vietnam Veteran (USN so it's not like I was really in Vietnam). Life is hard, pull your big boy panties on and get with the program.
