IMESHO Dr. Acton (and the Gov. who is living vicariously through her at this point) is in a position of having TOO much power - and we the people have given it freely - and now she's freely taking all of our freedoms.  

Just at the point where the testing and occurrence rates are skyrocketing and the death rate is plummeting - we just locked down the world.

We get on this forum and gripe over and over about our politicians here and their ineptitude - maybe the larger problem is that our local politicians inspire to be THESE PEOPLE! 

So now it is shelter in place to stop a virus.  A virus that we know will end up infecting nearly everyone is probably going to still infect everyone.  The healthcare system is going to be overrun because the panic has everyone believing that every cough means they have the virus.  Overreaction is the problem.  On every end.

I watch down my street as all the kids who are supposed to be in school right now sharing the virus with one another....run around playing football, basketball and soccer and such SHARING THE VIRUS WITH ONE ANOTHER! 

I'd love to join in on the hysteria - but folks - count me out.  If I get the virus - I get the virus.  If I'm sick - I stay home.  Yes, the elderly are more at risk, and we should be very careful what we do with them and how we interact.  The youngest of the population too.  However, at what point do we all have enough of the crazy and get on living life.

If there's one fear I have in the middle of all this - what happens next winter when the flu starts going around again?  Do we shut down the entire world economy and hold ourselves hostage in our homes every time someone gets a sniffle in China?

Talk about your slippery slopes...this is the slipperiest.  Whatever happened to every American having the right to the pursuit of their own happiness?  

I'm gonna have to start drinking or doing drugs or something - I can't stand to ever be locked in my house....I'm an American and I thank God everyday for the freedoms that USED to be granted to me.

Understand your frustration. Also see the Governor's side of things and his decisions so far. Was at Meijers the other day and stood in line before they opened at 8AM. The new store hour announcement came as a sign on the door as you walked up thinking they were still a 24/7 operation. As I was waiting for the doors to open, a Meijers employee told everyone in line to stand 6 ft apart. The line did as she asked but I was somewhat annoyed that an employee was "directing traffic" as if she had some legal authority to do so. They were holding the line up by wiping every cart handle with disinfectant wipes. All headed, of course, to the toilet paper aisle which was picked over in minutes. Just seems to me to be a dose of paranoia to some extent. DeWine is closing down everything at midnight tonight except groceries, pharmacies, trash collection and mail, ie, all non-essential services. I understand the theory of having people stay to themselves to reduce passing the virus. Can also understand one's frustration about being confined to your home as well. My son and I were more inclined to stay at home before this all happened so this isn't too great of change for us. As time has gone by, we just thought there were too many crazies out there to be bothered with. Society, in general, has taken a hit as to any common sense or proper behavior at times in our opinion. We just try and stay away from any situation where we might deal with this element of society.

This too, shall pass and we will look back on this and talk about it as history learned, just like 911 or the other virus scares we have had in the past.

As is usually the case, time passing will lessen the impact of a bad situation.
I'm so proud of my hometown and what it has become. Recall 'em all. Let's start over.

Congratulations Ohio - you're in STATE CONTROLLED QUARANTINE for another month!

Your Governor and her Heiress Dr. Acton have decided UNILATERALLY that we must all suffer in our homes for yet another month. 6 foot spread?  Seriously?  If the virus lives for 3-4 days after being expelled - we should have a 3-4 DAY SPREAD - meaning we should all just go shoot ourselves and put ourselves out of misery.  IF EVERYTHING THEY SAY IS TRUE - YOU WILL GET THIS AT SOME POINT - THERE'S NO METHOD OF ESCAPE (apart from a vaccine).

So - the Governor thinks this is great...

Great for the economy?  No.
Great for the people's physical health? No.
Great for the people's mental health? No.
Great for the unemployment lines? No.
Great for the markets? No.
Great for anyone? The answer is NO!

You might say, "but, Bob, why you said it wasn't good for the people's health! That flies in the face of everything the GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS are putting in front of us!"

Yep.  Take a good hard long look at the faces of everyone in the bureaucracy as they are talking about all these government controls....look at their faces.  Look at them in the B-roll footage as they walk down hallway and are caught coming and going....this is a SOCIALISTS DREAM!

I'm listening right now to the idiots in Columbus as they give their daily briefing.  We have hundreds of thousands of new employees who have just been put out of work - and guess what...the guy trumpeting that also then trumpets that many businesses have had a lack of available people to support their operations so it will be good for them.

Does he not realize that HE AND HEIRESS ACTON SHUT DOWN ALL THOSE BUSINESSES?!??!?!??!?!?

14 states still have no quarantine orders and they're doing just as fine or just as bad (however to put things into perspective go check out the latest CDC numbers for the entire state of deaths by type which is 2017) and look - yes - it's a communicable disease and it will kill some people.  But then again - so does everything!

Life kills.  In fact, the moment we are all born we begin the slow process of dying.  Some live 100 years and die in their sleep from sheer exhaustion.  Some die before they reach 6 weeks of age due to SIDS.  Some die in car accidents.  Some die from cancer.  Some die from heart disease.

Her HEIRESS is now making a public spectacle of her order!  Can you believe this?  This is a power trip - I'll get to that in a minute.

We all will die.  IF coronavirus doesn't kill us - something else will. Social distancing? IF it really works - wouldn't it cure ALL communicable disease?  Instead - even with social distancing - the curve hasn't yet flattened!

SO - were the initial predictions wrong?  What about all the new predictions??!?! Government has never been wrong...right?

As people's paychecks run out - as the bread lines will form - as the people go crazy sitting in their homes over this and as the GLOBAL economy collapses - when will we have enough of this?  When will we stand up for what is our freedoms?

Is it fair to make the government employees who pass out welfare have to deal with the general public while this MASS HYSTERIA  goes on?

But I'll digress.  This is nothing more than a power trip.  Many people, when given authority, salivate over actually getting to USE that power from the moment they get it.  In this case - this kind of snatch and grab of our freedoms is simply a trial run.  A trial-run to see how much we the people will put up with when they REALLY come after our freedoms.

Mark my words - right now every socialist in the country and communists around the world are LOVING this.  They're watching as the mighty United States of America is brought to its knees by its bureaucrats alone.  And mark my words...they're noting that we are taking it lying down. 

Think about this - if the coronavirus hadn't hit hard and large in other countries - would we have even noticed this virus to date?  I doubt it.  Look at the numbers.  It wouldn't at this point even raise an eyebrow. Yes there's a larger number in giant cities where people live on top of each other like rats in cages - but that's always the case with any communicable disease, virus, common cold or otherwise.

This is all being enveloped in 'it's good for everyone' - but the state just instituted a 'resolution board' that is going to SHUT DOWN any business they think isn't worthy of being open - and their decision was JUST TOUTED AS FINAL WITH NO WAY OF APPEAL.

WAKE UP OHIO!  WAKE UP AMERICA!  WAKE UP EVERYONE!

Go live your lives - tell Gov. DeWine to stop the madness and let us get back to work.

He's forcing mass layoffs - then asking people to manufacture things needed.  My HEAD IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE!  He and his cadre of 'leaders' can't see the irony of their own decisions.

ARGH!

Her Heiress was just asked a great question about when we can go back to normal....

She can't answer the question.  It's never yet occurred to her that we'd ever go back to being a free people.

Her answer is that we don't know - and she doesn't even know how we can make that decision.

Good luck people, she just said until it all stops it can't be undone - this is the beginning of the end.

Bob, I understand your frustration. You are a working man and are eager to return to work while having the burden of worrying about your income and family. I am in a different position right now. I am retired and get paid once a month and don't really worry about where my next paycheck is coming from. I do work part time for my old employer on call at Wright-Patterson. I don't rely on an employer's paycheck. This part time money is spending money to purchase extra odds and ends for my son and I when needed. I don't necessarily depend on the part time money but it is nice to have at times.

Since we are in different situations, as it pertains to the virus shutdown and isolation in society, you are obviously going to feel more pressure than I will. I can't offer any suggestions to eliminate your frustrations but I can throw empathy your way.

None of us know how long this will last. Neither the politicians nor the medical professionals can tell us either. The only choice we have is to wait it out and see what develops down the road for all of us. Right now, IMO, your highest responsibility is to your family and to yourself to stay healthy through isolation and suggested hygiene practices. You and your family matter most to you at this time. You will return to work when it happens. You have notified your creditors at this time of your situation and that let's them know you intend to pay when you have the money coming in again. They must understand as they are not interested in taking your house or anyone else's at this time. Same with the car payment. They don't want your car and understand the situation and are willing to wait until the payments start rolling in again. All your creditors know this is beyond your fault. They can't call in their debts knowing the massive number of people that are in your situation. That's all I got buddhalite. Suggest trying to relax a bit and enjoy your family time. After all, in normal times, and knowing how much time work takes from your day, this appears to be a great time to enjoy some closeness with the family....your most important asset. JMO
