    Jist wonder how long do you accept to sacrifice liberty for public health? And do you trust the government to allow churches, resturants , nightclubs, bars , cruiselines to open up again , and back to normal? Or make he " new normal" permanent.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Why would the "government" want to keep everything closed indefinitely? How does it benefit them, if the economy suffers? Often I'm not a big fan of some governmental policies, but in this case I think everyone wants the same thing. Healthy people and a viable economy.

    That poll is all over the place and pretty loaded. Basically we need to keep things locked down until own healthcare system can handle the remaining load.

    What makes you believe that a Vaccine is the answer?

    The only type of Vaccine worth getting would be on the order of the Small Pox Vaccine, where it is done one time for life, that then is a cure, not a yearly maybe I hope this works kind of thing we now have every year.

    If they do come up with a Vaccine, will you still need to get the Vaccine for the H1N1 every year also, how may more will we need to get in the future?

    I think some folks don't yet understand the potential deadliness of this thing. The whole world hasn't gone into similar lockdown/shelter in place etc just because this is just another virus. The exponential nature of it is severe at best.

    It’s until we can reasonably separate the covid positive patients from the non infected population.

    I think when the time is right and the virus is under control things will re open.

    What else do you suppose will happen?

    What a silly, simple-minded notion of liberty.

    I'm old. Par for the course anyway, be it some back room in the house or confinement to a senior facility.

    Satan's more than happy to liberate ppl from their lives (such as they are).

    Didn't Bibi say 'Once we're finished with America it can dry up and blow away.'..?

    To steal and kill and destroy.

    Anybody home?

    We love others and we don't want to catch or spread the virus. I feel like I'm going crazy, however we can do what we need to do.
