Default Coronavirus Crazy

This country is going totally nuts.


Armed vigilantes blocked a neighbor'''s driveway with a tree to force him into quarantine

Did you actually read the article??? Those guys had been living there since September and were working on a construction site. The only reason these idiot vigilantes had for this violence was because they were from New Jersey.

I agree completely. Nobody’s talking yet about the fallout that’s bound to happen from being cooped up - suicides, breakdowns, domestic abuse, assaults, etc. I think it’s inevitable unless we can find a way to prevent it in the first place.

The president talked about it last night in his Rose Garden address on most channels.

From some of the posts I've read here recently, it could very well be.

Yes, tragic.

I remember how people in Lyme Connecticut were similarly set upon by crazed people upset with Lyme Disease

Just wait. We haven't even hit the month of April when another 30 day calendar begins.

Anyone that thinks this can not happen in the US is delusional. Desperate people do desperate things. Praying we fare better, but when people are hungry, they are desperate. And just think back to the number of times we have seen looting/rioting during hurricanes and natural disasters already here in the US, and those were regional issues. We are now talking national/global. BE PREPARED and you will be ok. Unprepared will be wishing they considered the unthinkable if enough Law Enforcement become ill with this that they can not contain those who are desperate.

Default Service Calls

Dont understand all thats going on with the Covid-19 and people still calling for service calls because their refrigerator is making too much noise, their dishwasher is not drying properly, their washer is making noise, refrigerator a light is out, all this crazy nonesense. Do you really want a technician that has been to 10 different homes not only in the Villages but all over in your home. By the way any parts going into your appliances is coming most likely from CHINA to include the box. The only service call should be a no cool refrigerator if any..::

No this country is not going totally nuts

There are a few nuts that get a lot of media attention...the media is focused on sensationalism, not on reporting news

maybe closing all the mental hospitals and seeing how 'mainstreaming' them with the general population wasn't such a good idea after all

And I'm sure that crowd wasn't practicing social distancing while they cut the tree down and dragged it across the road. What were they doing out, anyhow?
