ARMED TRUMPERS storm State Houses, demand that they end "Say At Home" Mandates!
Trump: "These are good people. State governments should negotiate with them."





Trump Supporters, in my humbled by the years' view, are emboldened by their AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, that they carry, march around like make-believe soldiers and flash, when, upset with government policy!

These treasonous, law-breaking rabble-rousers banned together wearing camouflage, military articles of clothing, that they obviously purchased from a local gun store.

Worked up into a lather, by their decades of anger, stored up perceived slights, and urged on by DOMESTIC EXTREMISTS, they protest outside of statehouses in a selfish, self-serving expression to duly elected officials by attempting to intimidate them into submitting to their 8th-grade interpretation of their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, as they perceived them to be.

Clearly, these dolts do not understand the Constitution, the Law, or, how our government works.

To me, they resemble the ragged rabble of thugs, Right-Wing Militias that want to overthrow a legitimate government and replace it with IDIOCY, a Conservative-Christian Religious one run my half-wits, nit-wits and toothless MORONS.

256

The CONSTITUTION is not the WORD OF GOD. It is not a BIBLE to be memorized. It is a contract with the American Citizens, spelling out the relationships between the Federal & State governments, the rights of the citizens, and the role (as the Founders proposed, from their point of view) the most humane and honest form of government, that these bright, talented, successful Founding Fathers (in pantaloons) perceived it might become.

The Constitution, if anyone has attempted the arduous task of reading it knows, is written in a style that is not easy to read, understand, or, interpret.

After all, it was written with a Quil, by men who wore powdered wigs and wore pantaloons. (Very popular, to this day, in the South!)

To me, I see it as a guide, as, the Contract proposed, and, amended a few times, between government, and its citizens.

It is not perfect, but, it is pretty damn good and, has generally served us well.

Primarily because it allows for Amendments to be added, not haphazardly, by a mob of well-armed protesters demanding laws to be instantly changed upon their say so - "Right, this DAMN Minute", or, like crazed delinquents, these "saviors of 'Merika" may, at a moment notice, start shooting everything and everyone in sight!

Killing unarmed fellow citizens, lawmakers, and innocent bystanders, even if they are children.

Changes to government policies, laws, and focus can be made legally, but, these impatient, undisciplined CLUSTER FU*KS, cannot wait for a thoroughly debated, thoughtful process, especially one that requires a two-third consensus from Law Makers and their fellow citizen to alter the Constitution.

They have LETHAL WEAPONS. They demand the changes NOW!

These alcoholic fueled wife beaters, high-school dropouts, racist dimwits want to make the LAWS, because, y'll all, they have guns!

Trump Supporters seem, to me, to have read the Preamble, memorized part of the SECOND AMENDMENT, then, pronounced themselves "EXPERT CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLARS."

And, sadly, dangerously, these poorly educated, angry, misguided fellow citizens seem quite eager and willing to KILL anyone that disagrees with their TWISTED, perverted, unsophisticated point of view.

Because, it is, well, "THEIR" point of view, and, they are SELF-proclaimed, "CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLARS!"

This country SHALL not be led by the lowest elements in our society, nor, by IDIOTS that display the Confederate Flag as the symbol of their LOVE/Patriotism for this country.

256

We are NOT subjects to the CONFEDERACY!

The American flag, not the Nazi, or, Confederate flag is our NATIONAL SYMBOL.

If you are so addled headed to believe otherwise, then, perhaps, you are the REAL ENEMY of the STATE!

You, and that POS in the White House that urges them to "Liberate their States", and refer to them as "Good People" that state governments should negotiate with!

We are a country divided, by ignorant, under-educated, angry, largely white folks pissed off because they are being left out in a rapidly changing technological society, that they neither understand nor, want to be part of.

Further, they are encouraged by that TRAITOR in the White House, Donald J. Trump, the worst president in the history of this country!

In the midst of the deadliest PANDEMIC (COVID19), the Commander - In Bull Shat, encourages his followers to "Liberate Their States", on, of course, Horse, Twitter.

Hundreds flock to statehouses with loaded, armed, automatic weapon DEMANDING that duly elected state legislatures counter-man, their Governor and IMMEDIATELY open up their state for these Maroons might 256 get back to their low paying jobs.

They miss the bars, the tattoo parlors, but, not the Library, and, of course, Horse, that job that they hate, but, does give them enough money to feed their family and drink.

Welcome to the NEW AMERICA!

Gosh, so much to unpack.

Hundreds flock to statehouses

Yep, they are the people's houses. Got a problem with the people showing up there? You better get over it.

with loaded, armed, automatic weapon

OK, they're armed, but they have a right to be, and I see nothing about them threatening to shoot anybody, so I assume you put this here just to make them look bad. Also, you have no idea if those weapons were loaded and it's highly unlikely that any of them were automatic weapons. In other words, we are reading made up BS rooted in prejudice.

DEMANDING that duly elected state legislatures counter-man, their Governor

Yeah, we have government with three branches. The Legislature represents those people and it is their role to countermand the governor if enough people want it.

You do a lot of talking about the Constitution, but you don't seem to understand how it works. The people run this country, not governors with no limits.

for these Maroons might get back to their low paying jobs

It's hard for me to hold down my lunch at the nauseating snobbery of people who - apparently financially comfortable themselves - look down on people who struggle to get by with jobs that don't make them rich, but are honest labor all the same. If you think you are better than those people, you are dead wrong.

If you have to strap a piece to yourself to communicate, you need some serious work on your communication skills.

Besides.... these idiots are disrespecting the very first responders that have put their lives on the line just because they refuse to wear a facemask.  First responders they may very well need to save their lives in the not too distant 14 day future.

Or maybe it's because government isn't listening to the people and needs to be reminded that they work for us, not the other way around. Maybe someone else needs to work on their governing skills. Ever think of that?

What makes you think none of them have ever been a first responder?

You actually have no idea if that's true. Just a month ago, expert scientists were telling us we didn't need to wear masks. Where is your contempt for them?

In fact, several first responders, doctors, and nurses have contracted the virus in spite of masks. Other people go maskless and never catch it. There are no guarantees.

Maybe if the government's actions had been a little more targeted and a little more respectful of the needs of the people, those same people wouldn't have become so pissed off that they felt the need to bring their guns and unmasked faces to the public square in protest.

The WH is also known as the "people's house".  If these gangs tried storming it they would find themselves locked and loaded upon and then arrested.

Paula: 

My response is two-fold!  

It is a reply to your post, but,

[deleted, this is not the way to protest a ticket.  Please use Chat or Private Notes to complain to the RA, thanks]

                                                               **********

No, Paula, the State House, does not belong to the PEOPLE.

Now, if this were China, or, Russia, or, any COMMUNIST country, you might be Right.

But, in America, the PEOPLE do not own all government facilities for numerous reasons. Thorough our vote we elected folks to do our bidding, but, we do not own them either.

In this instance, this is the building that houses the state government, and, in most cases, was built, financed by the state government with the approval of its governor, and state legislatures.

Protesters are required to get a permit from the city or state where they are protesting, in many cases, agree to the intent and decorum established by the state for legitimate, peaceful demonstrations.

These gun mob of dangerous malcontents pushed their way into the interior of the State House, disrupted a lawful state assembly, and, intimidated the lawmakers with their drawn, loaded weapons.👳‍♂️👩

Several members of that body were so threatened that they put on their BULLETPROOF vests fearing that they were in imminent danger.

That is not a sanctioned protest. That is an aggressive, illegal attack on a state government, a deliberate action to intimidate those who were elected to serve their constituents, through forcing the governor and the state legislators to MOB RULE via the power and number of a rowdy, undisciplined, half-ass crowd of LETHAL WEAPONS CARRYING under-educated citizens, who believe that they can take the law into their hands because they bought themself a deadly military-style weapon that they flashed as a violent communication to legitimate lawmakers.

The protesters are LAWBREAKERS, not lawmakers.

They have not been appointed by any recognized organization on behalf of their fellow citizens. They were a collection of angry, dangerous citizens with guns.

In my view, they should have been arrested, charged with trespassing, and had their TOYS taken away from them for the illegal use of INTIMIDATING ELECTED OFFICIALS.

Whatever they want it to do. They’re not actually shooting anyone, so let’s stop acting like they are.

Irrelevant.

It’s entirely relevant if the implication was supposed to be that they don’t care about first responders or have any respect for them. It’s ok to make blanket negative assumptions about these people, but not to push back on it? I don’t think so.

It reduces the chance of you getting the disease or you spreading the disease. 

Yep, and I choose to wear one for those reasons. Rather than just condemn these people, I think it would show a lot more open-mindedness and humility if people - in government, but also in the media, or even here - considered what might be driving them to a frustration level so high that they thought it was more important to congregate in a group without masks. If your assumption is that they’re just dumb rubes, then you’re part of a problem that promotes spread of the disease.

Because there is no logical pushback. The simple fact is that they are putting first responders' lives in danger and that is not fair.

I am sincerely glad to hear that.

I am all for protesting. I am not for doing it in a manner that is dangerous to other people.

considered what might be driving them to a frustration level so high that they thought it was more important to congregate in a group without masks.

Here is something that might shock you. I am not in disagreement with why there are there. I think their gov didn't present the situation properly or respond to it properly and I am from NY. Now that is a reason to protest. But it is not a reason to protest without masks and with guns. Yes, I know they have the right to carry those guns, but having the right doesn't make it right. It makes the situation dangerous and threatening. 

If your assumption is that they’re just dumb rubes, then you’re part of a problem that promotes spread of the disease.

Instead of guessing what my assumption is, you tell me why they wouldn't wear masks?

Maybe you're unaware, but it's nearly impossible to get a gun in Washington DC, much less carry one legally.  Although that has changed with the Heller decision, it's still difficult.

Do they storm the WH with weapons?

Tell me the last time anyone "stormed" the White House.  To the best of my knowledge, that was way back in 1814 when the British did it.

Or you could tell me 1) why you get to care and 2) why anyone should have to justify such a thing to you or anyone else.

Just because you have a right doesn't make it right.

What makes it wrong?

The simple fact is that they are putting first responders' lives in danger and that is not fair.

A lot of actions put other people at risk. Current government actions are putting all sorts of people at risk. I’m not saying they don’t always have a good reason, but there is risk aplenty to go around. I have friends and family looking at losing their businesses, their homes, their savings, their children’s’ education plans, and are foregoing certain medical treatments that could risk their lives down the road. Are you going to hold everyone accountable for all the risks they expose someone else to? I think you’ll be busy.

Some risks are easier to spot than others, but that doesn’t make them worse. You don’t actually know - and have no way of learning - what first responder will get ill before (or at all) than they otherwise might have. Considering the way experts keep telling us we’re almost all going to be exposed at some point, is it really a big difference if you get sick today or a month from now?

you tell me why they wouldn't wear masks?

I don’t know them so I can’t answer. Maybe you could ask them. Maybe they’re big believers in the herd immunity thing. Maybe they’ve all had the virus already. Maybe they think a certain amount of death from disease is just part of life.

I find it interesting how quick we are to judge. In other contexts, like having a gun in the home, or locking your doors, there are some who would mock others for being afraid. Others would say you’re a fool for not taking precautions. We can say the same thing about insurance, seat belts, fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, dressing warm in cold weather, washing hands X number of times a day, eating a low carb diet, driving a certain speed, airport security, and on and on and on.

Not with Armed Weapons. That is never a protest. It is a THREAT to its intended target, and, a serious threat to this country.

This Militia Bull CRAP has gotten out of hand and with a President that put the "country first", it would have been immediately shut down, and these wannabes "Revolutionaries" jailed.

Trump, The Incompetent Commander in Bull Chips and Common Thievery" incite his supports to "Liberate their States," thereby, giving them sanctions to carry out their dangerous, and, illegal actions.

It's rather upsetting to realize that a good number of those obtusely uninformed protesters will either become ill, or die, or they will have family members that will become seriously ill or die because of their foolish actions.

All you do is ask questions and or say something all the lines of "what difference does it make" or "who is it hurting".

I have a question, why did they bring guns to a peaceful protest? Were they anticipating the state police opening fire on them? Maybe they thought the Black Panthers would show up and prompt a firefight. 

The truth, as we all know, is that they brought guns in order to intimidate people, mainly the government people. Governor, if you keep this up you will face armed resistance. That was the message. 

Should private citizens be allowed to intimidate people on a public grounds like a state capital? 

Back in the old west, many towns had a policy that you had to turn in your guns when you set foot in town. No one argued about constitutional rights. 

There should be no guns by private citizens on government grounds. 

I dont care who you think or dont think it would "hurt".

Folks, because someone has memorized a third of the SECOND AMENDMENT does not mean that they UNDERSTAND IT.

The Constitution is a difficult read for Constitutional Scholars, whole bodies of Lawyers, Constitution Scholars, and Calcified Conservative Nitwits continue to argue over its meanings to this day.

But, the under-educated, poorly educated has got it down pact because they read the Preamble and memorized a portion of the SECOND AMENDMENT making them EXPERTS on the Constitution!

Everyone that has a different perspective on gun regulation is not a gun HATER. As an ex-Army, E-5 Specialist, who served in the 8th RRU, at Phu Bia, Vietnam, I understand what the Weapons the Trump Supporter lug around are manufactured to do.

It is important this nation keeps them out of the hands of unstable, lustful potential killers' hands because they are NOT TOYS, indeed, they are LETHAL WEAPONS used to KILL, not maim people.

In the service, a number of people were issued a DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE, or, Court Martial, put in prison because they were Killers the loved to kill, not SOLDIERS!

Violence is an innate instinct, but, in a Civilized World, it is incumbent on all good people to understand that natural urge, but, suppress it because we no longer live in caves. (In case you haven't noticed.)

That definition was limited by technology of the times. Writing implements of the day to express free speech was a quill, ink pot, and parchment. If you’re going to limit firearms to the technology of the day will you limit your use of writing implements to the technology of the day.
Will you ditch your electronic gizmos and go with the old implements to exercise your freedom of speech because that was the practice at the time the constitution was written?

I don't think Jefferson - or any other founder - ever made any such definition. In any event, Jefferson wasn't the author of the Constitution. 

If he had made such a definition, then he would not have been acknowledging the technology of the time.

Behold the Girandoni Air Rifle.

Girandoni_Air_Rifle.jpg

It entered service in the Austrian Army in 1780 and remained in use until 1815. Lewis and Clark took one with them when they traveled west.

It worked from a magazine that held 20 rounds and fired those balls at 500 feet per second. Quite lethal. It was also quite complicated and expensive, which is why Americans tended to use the simpler and cheaper muskets for a long time.

But to make the assumption that the framers of the Constitution could only conceive of muskets is probably incorrect.

Good to see patriots standing up against tyranny. The founding fathers would be proud. Imagine the red coats telling the minute men they had to stay home and couldn't have their guns. We went to war for less than what is going on in this country now. And if anyone thinks the 2nd amendment can't protect citizens against the government in modern times, take a look at Waco.

Hell, simply look at the numbers.  Most have no understanding of military doctrine or current military manpower.

Our current military has approximately 1,400,000 active duty personnel, augmented by about 860,000 reservists for a total of 2,260,000.  And yeah, that's a whole lot of people.  What most don't realize is that of that 2,260,000 there are only about 200,000 actual combatants.  The remainder are in support functions like logistics, training, human resources, etc.

Now when one considers that there are approximately 90,000,000+ Americans that own firearms in this country, and many of those are in fact current and former military and law enforcement, I doubt seriously if the rabid anti-gun radicals realize the very distinct disadvantage the government has if they ever tried to disarm the populace.  And contrary to Eric Swallwell proclaiming that the government has nukes, the possibility of the government using those on it's own soil against it's own citizens is as remote as Swallwell becoming the next Catholic Pope.

Get real. The second any president made that order Impeachment would be the least of their concerns.  The US military swears an oath to the US Constitution, not to the Presidency.

I have friends that serve in all branches of the military; any orders to attack or fire upon US citizens in anything but self defense would be refused.  Thankfully they have more morals and brains than some on the left it seems.

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Please note the word CONSTITUTION.  It goes on further to note the orders of the President of the United States per the Uniform Code of Military Justice.   

Those words mean the men and women in uniform protect and defend the CONSTITUTION, not the government.  Further, the UCMJ notes that only LEGAL LAWFUL orders are to be carried out.  Do you really believe that the Air Force pilots would fire on American citizens if they were fighting for their CONSTITUTIONAL rights?

There have been a number of domestic terrorists who have declared themselves, so, and none prevailed.

I do not believe that you speak for the 90,000,000, or, anyone. The Constitution does not grant to any citizen or groups of citizens to take up arms every time they get a "burr" up their tukas about one thing or the other.

That kind of Constitution would constantly conflict with disgruntles in a deadly fashion. That is exactly the type of juvenile logic that the Founders wanted to avoid.

And, in my "humbled" by the years' view, I would estimate that of your "so-called" 90 million, 99.9% would agree that your logic is unfounded for an adult.

Actually, I believe I was in error.  I should have noted 90,000,000+ armed American citizens.  Thank you for bringing that error to my attention.  And no one is suggesting combat other than some people with seriously impaired imaginations.  As to "dangerous "Military-style" weapons", having something that looks like current military arms, does not in point of fact make them military arms.  Cosmetic appearances do NOT make a firearm a military WEAPONS SYSTEM.  And no one is suggesting "war" other than people with serious imagination problems.

Dictatorial Michigan Governor Smears Lockdown Protesters As Racists

5eaedfefb25a8Screen%20Shot.png

The Sunday morning "news" shows typically set up the propaganda points that will drive the week's news cycle and the war on dissent has officially begun. 

With the anti-American lockdowns over the coronavirus panic increasingly looking to have been an unnecessary overreaction by government, citizens have started taking to the streets to protest the decrees by tyrannical officials. 

Democrat governors are determined to extend the lockdowns for as long as possible in order to crush the economy and damage President Trump's reelection chances but for those who can see that the models have been wrong, they are as mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. 

So this morning, the dictatorial governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer showed up on CNN's "State Of The Union" to accuse protesters in her state of - you guessed it -  racism

Via The Hill,  "Whitmer says Michigan protests 'depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history'" :

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) said protests inside the state capitol last week, featuring demonstrators with assault weapons, swastikas and Confederate flags, depicted some of the “worst racism and awful parts” of the nation’s history.  

“Some of the outrageousness of what happened at our capitol depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country,” she said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”  

“The behavior you've seen in all of the clips is not representative of who we are in Michigan,” she added.  

The protesters were demonstrating against Whitmer’s statewide stay-at-home order put in place amid the coronavirus pandemic in an effort to mitigate the spread of the potentially fatal virus. 

What Whitmer didn't bother mentioning nor did the whiny Jake Tapper confront her with is that the swastikas that she complained about were on signs comparing her to Nazis. 

On Friday, President Trump tweeted his support of those in Michigan who are exercising their constitutional right to peacefully protest. 

Per Trump: 

"The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal."

With the inevitable playing of the race card, the predictable media line of attack is going to be to breath new life into the Charlottesville  "some fine people on both sides" lie in which Trump's actual comments were taken out of context.  

Even Tapper admitted it last year:

As for Whitmer, she has become the poster child for liberal totalitarianism for her punishing and arbitrary restrictions which have forbidden Michiganders of purchasing garden plants and seeds while protecting abortion mills. 

This has naturally led to protests from citizens whose lives are being destroyed by this cruel woman who is using the crisis to audition for the vice presidency.

Whitmer has now used the protests as an excuse for collective punishment of residents by extending the lockdowns despite resistance that has spread to the state legislature which is now suing her for overreach.

And she isn't backing down one inch but rather leading the national crusade by the leftist elite to crush resistance to Democrat tyranny.

The CONSTITUTION does not give citizens the RIGHT to intimidate, bully, scare, frighten others because they have a difference of opinion on State rule.

I hope you are familiar with the Whisky Rebellion in P.A., which forced President Washington to assemble an army to put down a militia of armed farmers who believed that the government had no right to tax their homemade whiskey.

Throughout history, over and over, again and again, this issue has been resolved in court and court, and, in the field which has often led to the death of many people. All because people cannot READ, or, understand the Constitution written by brilliant men 235 years ago using a quill.

The Constitution does not give any group, no matter how under-educated they may be, to run ship shod over other citizens at the point of a gun.

That is what bullies do!

IGNORANCE is not a suitable defense for "implied violence."

In times of National Crisis one's government often calls upon its citizens to pitch in and help during the crisis.

Throughout recorded history there are always the few who work against their government and are unwilling to sacrifice for it.

We do not call these folks PATRIOTIC! They are often seen as an unruly mob, Traitors, and/or selfish.

I believe that any of those words would suffice for the actions of this undisciplined, unruly mob of HATERS!

The "so-called" patriots are protesting during a WORLDWIDE HEALTH EMERGENCY, that has KILLED 300,000 people, (69,834 in America).

Another 1.2 MILLION of their fellow Americans are infected, with estimates that in America, the number of DEATHS will reach over 100,000+.

This is NOT a Common Flu, it is a NATIONAL CRISIS!

There are no vaccines, no over-the-counter drugs, no effective treatments. The Medical Community is overwhelmed! Bodies are stacking up in hospitals, funeral homes, nursing homes, even prisons.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC), and, our National COVID 19 Medical Professionals appointed by and with the consent of the Cheif-Executive Officer of the United States of America, the President, has explained that the ONLY thing this nation can do, at this moment, is to SLOW down the spread of this Virus.

They have outlined how America and most of the countries of the World have put in place these helpful strategies:

1. Wearing Face Masks to protect the wearer and others from possible contamination.

2. Washing one's hands with disinfectant hand soap for a minimum of 20 seconds.

3. Avoid touching one's face, and, human contact during the epidemic.

4. The "social distancing" of a minimum of 6' on all sides of citizens, because the virus can be spread by the Virus through the air up to 19 feet.

5. Disinfecting surfaces frequently due to the virus's ability to survive on some surfaces like metal up to 24+ hours.

At this moment, the World's Best Scientists, Epidemiologists, Universities, Research Institutions are working to find a vaccine, as well as medicines that may remediate the illness in people and speed their recovery.

Medical Professionals (Doctors, Nurses, Health aide, ant, the entire Hospital Staff, along with Paramedics, and, others) on the FRONT LINE, putting themselves at risk, to treat INFECTED COVID 19 patients.

They are the PATRIOTS, not, a mob of angry, undisciplined disrupters that are demand that the NATION bow to their potentially violent, dangerous DICTATES to "Open the Country Up," so. they might get back to their much-needed jobs.

Our, Fake POTUS, real POS in the WH, Trump, flames their cause by encouraging them to "LIBERATE THEIR STATE," with his 1:00 a.m. "Twits," in direct contrast to the policies that he avows during his daytime COVID19 PRESS CONFERENCES. 

Further, these folks, you so generously refer to as "PATRIOTS" thump their nose at the scientific/medical community by refusing to wear Face Masks, and, ignoring the recommendations of the WHO (World Health Organization), their own Center for Disease Control, and, the COVID 19 Presidential Task Force, well-research and vetted orders.

In short, your "HEROES, are deliberately putting their fellow citizens at grave risk FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT!

A patriot is someone that FIGHTS for their country, not AGAINST it.

They have outlined how America and most of the countries of the World have put in place these helpful strategies:
1. Wearing Face Masks to protect the wearer and others from possible contamination.

Laudable and within some reason.  Please note the operative word "some".  I seriously doubt walking alone on a beach or strolling down a country trail without a mask will have any negative impact or infect any other people.  Personally, I haven't worn a mask outside of my home since this debacle started unless forced to in stores, and neither have any of my neighbors.  And to the best of my knowledge, no one in my community, including the large number of "first responders" has contracted this virus.

2. Washing one's hands with disinfectant hand soap for a minimum of 20 seconds.

That's also a great idea.  Of course that would require massive infrastructure development to put running water and disinfectant soap in all the places people congregate.  Or is that only applicable when you're in your own home and incapable of infecting the population at large?

3. Avoid touching one's face, and, human contact during the epidemic.

That's also great advice.  Not only for now, but all the time.  Hell, you have no idea what you touched that some scumbag that didn't wash his/her hands after dumping a major shit touched.  It's even better when you see that same scumbag in the restaurant and embarrass him/her by asking as you pass if they're going to eat with those hands after taking the shit and not washing.  The look he/she gets from table mates is truly a sight to behold.

4. The "social distancing" of a minimum of 6' on all sides of citizens, because the virus can be spread by the Virus through the air up to 19 feet.

Ok..   lets work this using a little match shall we?   You, point "B"  stand 6 feet from point "A" and another, point "C" stands 6 feet from that same point "A".   That's 12 feet total distance between you. Now I don't know about you, but I can sure as hell tell you that even a King Size bed doesn't permit that kind of distance.  And even if it did, 12 feet is certainly within the 19 feet diameter the virus can spread.  

5. Disinfecting surfaces frequently due to the virus's ability to survive on some surfaces like metal up to 24+ hours.

Ergo why when I fly, I carry those little packs of disinfectant wipes and enjoy the looks of other passengers when I wipe everything that I might touch off with one or two, and why when I go to restaurants I have those little bottles of Purell type disinfectants and after I give the menu back, use a generous amount to clean my hands and then any and all condiment holders like salt/pepper shakers, ketchup bottles etc get wiped with my still wet hands.  

PS:  It's impolite and immature to vote yourself up.  Just saying.

I punch the green icon that I can immediately post a response to a new comment, thereby, scam quickly to that one.

I click each green icon in the comment section NOT to VOTE it up, or,  INDICATE that I approve it.

I do so, that I can see the recent replies quickly.

Thanks, Miss Manners for your etiquette lesson.
