    Will all or most of the states go along with the extended shutdown/social distancing? Or will there be push back?

    I don’t see how this “ends” soon.

    we lose more people, or we lose more economic activity

    thanks China

    We'll see...I don't see it going past April...too much economic damage...we need to get back to a sense of normalcy, even with all the risks of doing so.

    But the not-so-subtle-in-their-bias news talking heads, pundits and progressive politicians can't blame the current administration for the "regular" flu problems. Why talk about it if it doesn't help frame their talking points and agenda? :rolleyes:

    The states are loving this COVID shutdown.

    The governors and mayors get to play dictator and compete with each other to see who can violate everyone's Constitutional rights more egregiously.

    The governors and mayors are enjoying their power to mess with people's lives and livelihoods by giving orders.

    "Shut down your business, peasant!"

    "No buying guns for you, peasant!"

    "Stay in your house, peasant!"

    "You can only go where we tell you, peasant!"

    "You can't go to work, you're not essential, peasant!"

    People are going to have to toughen up if they go out. Yes, we have a serious problem, but we`re not going to be able to pull out of this mess if people continue sitting home all cooped up. Things are drastically going to get worse. Especially in the bigger cities. I see a very bad crime wave coming soon. People are already getting very impatient, which is very understandable. If we have another month of shut downs, people locked in their homes, all hell will break loose eventually. How can it not. If some of these state and local govt`s try to push people back, they may be in for a very rude awakening.

    Ok, this is just my own personal opinion on it... i believe they are making this virus bigger than it really is. Sure, people are going to die, flu`s kill alotta people every year, its what it does. But all this doom & gloom is not helping with the situation. One thing we NEED to be doing, is thanking our doctor`s, nurse`s, hospital`s, law enforcement, for their courageous non-stop hours upon hours of help to ALL communities, as they are in the front lines putting themselves at risk. The govt`s above them need to just their lips and just let the people that KNOW what they`re doing, do THEIR jobs. The elected politician idiots just need to shut their effin mouth`s, just for once!

    Yes. No one wants to be the goat. Individuals may not, but when things are closed and services are limited, it won't make much difference.
    They will squeal when the tax revenues drop. They will run a circle jε®k when business closes and unemployment spikes.

    Now that it's started, it won't stop. The toilet has been flushed and we're just circling the drain.

    And alarmists gotta alarm.

    The truth usually ends up in the middle.

    Sadly, I think you are correct and I've shared this sentiment a few times.
    Even if this one works out, and no matter what, the politicos and media will exclaim "Look what we did!!!".
    Now that they know they can get away with this sort of thing, it will become a regular control item. There will be Dam Panic, or um Pan Demic over every little thing they feel they want to.
    The genie doesn't go back in the bottle, at least not for long.

    You got it.

    His royal highness Govna Wolf was surely licking his chops when he found out about it.

    It depends.

    Politicans keep their jobs as essential--now that is about as ironic as you can get. Here is Wisconsin Evers is asking for $700 million dollars to fight the virus PLUS wants nearly $2 billion in referendums in November.

    That money needs to come from somewhere. If politicans want to kepp their essential paid jobs...well?

    The transmission of this virus is just getting started. You can follow the "reported" numbers on this John Hopkins website. More states are inclined to go along now than they would have been three weeks ago, when officials were encouraging people to enjoy the parades, beaches, and restaurants. This thing will be with us after April because it is just getting started in fly over country.

    A week or two-three weeks ago I would agree with this 100%. However, now we have doctors, nurses, NY Police, etc, dying. There is constant news about front line people begging for protective equipment.

    Now I'm in the camp that this crap is serious. As to the answer to the OP, I could see some sparsely populated states wanting a little looser leash.
