I totally understand. You are so right. The only appliance that should need to call a repair men is air conditioner . You should not let anyone in your house. It’s people like that , that don’t help stop this virus. I am shocked at how people act.

Does the Governor’s “advisory” include all the people at LSL sitting outside of City Fire? No social distancing there.

It's a stay at home advisory, so yes it would include them also.

Do you somehow think that absolves China of responsibility? Cute comment but not on target.

You people that take your "daily rides" and are self-appointed cops should be arrested for disturbing the peace and inciting riots .. We really don;t need any more pictures of people "congregating" .

If you;re in doubt, MYOFB rules apply.

If it was on purpose or an accident, that is now passed, and after this is over the survivors can examine it more thoroughly. The big issue on this day.. is not how it started but that it is here. We need to deal with that reality now and examine who, if anyone is at fault later. I cannot believe that anyone would endanger the whole human race and especially the carnage that China has had, the deaths they won't admit to. The coffins and urns that have been used. But Germ warfare does exist, and so does nuclear fission, both can backfire and kill us all. I don't want revenge. I want us to survive. Dead people can't do anything about anything.

Yes, I agree that's the hardest part for people to get their arms around. It totally violates our Judeo-Christian norms. But the CCP is an amoral secular, authoritarian dictatorship. It's all about power and money. Plus, if you look at Chinese history, a few thousand or even million casualties are literally a drop in the bucket. Mao was responsible for40-80M deaths which was justified as needed to attain the new Utopian paradise on earth vs in heaven as it were.

Actually pictures of congregants are helpful ... took a walk tonite and about 25-30 people were in two different driveway parties. Some were socially distanced ... others (about 1/3) were not.

We all have a right to do stupid things, but not if it endangers others. Some exercise that right much more than others.

Helpful in what way … curious minds want to know? These folks in the second group that you mention might be harming only themselves; what do you care? Just keep your distance. If they're too cavalier and they all catch Corona (highly unlikely) and perish, then Darwin's theory of Natural Selection has, once again, come to play - what do you care … not your concern.

Fred. I agree a lot of people like to preach at others what they already know. But I too will do it anyway, and believe me, I too have thought of natural selection a time or two.....until it reached the part about the weak and old....

Anyway. Because anyone who is so dumb to catch it by being careless, endangers a whole lot of other people who are trying not to catch it and protect the people that they like. Some people like a whole big bunch of people, Fred. I like people I don't even know, like the first responders and the doctors and nurses and the...…...never mind. I bet if I knew YOU Fred, I wouldn't want you to catch it. I bet if I knew you Fred, I would like you.

Not to be too technical, but natural selection does not come into play here, since just about everyone is beyond reproductive age. "Stupid is as stupid does" probably fits better.
