    Make sure you message me telling me I'm right when you find out it's true. Or will you be a denier and say it is all fake? Well that is if you survive.

    Don't worry, I'll still be here. If and when the number of deaths in the United States from COVID-19 reaches 100,000 or more this season, I will come on here and post that you were right. Seriously. Of course, I hope that doesn't happen...not just because I want to be right...but because I want the lowest death toll possible.

    I hope you are right and I eat crow. Now as to a low forehead I think you need to take that post down. I did not insult you and Glock talk rules for I'd post like that. Have a good day and goodnight.

    A more interesting question is what will the people do? If restrictions lifted how many will take a wait and see approach? Then when infections/deaths skyrocket it will not matter what restrictions there are, folk will stay home.

    Unless there is a vaccine, a treatment or something to bring the mortality rate down.

    Sorry...I'm calling BS on that. Milllions are not going to die in the USA this year from COVID-19. MAYBE worldwide until they get a vaccine (2 flu seasons), but NFW we even get close to that total here in this country.

    Going from just over 2,000 dead to millions is quite a stretch, even given how contagious this new bug is.

    Your question did not specify "this year".

    Toocool45, first let me say, your story is far from being a rant, sir. And let me say, i enjoyed reading about YOUR pride. You are a REAL AMERICAN with REAL PRIDE! It is people like you, that keeps and give some of us some hope, that we CAN put this country back together, and MAKE things here again, and be proud that we did/do so. You are wired similar to me, and i can TOTALLY understand what your saying. I come from a very prideful background myself too. When i have the choice to buy AMERICAN, that will always be my first choice, because i`m proud that someone somewhere in AMERICA, in AMERICAN made it. By me buying AMERICAN, i`m supporting someones livelihood, their businesses. Anyone who cant get with that, is NOT a TRUE AMERICAN. Seems all we hear today is excuses why we cant, when we certainly can. I`ve pissed off a few people in GT lately due to my attitude, and i dont much care. Its because i`m old, and i`m VERY sick and tired of all the excuses why we have to be where we are today. Its about time this country woke the hell up out of their panzy a$$ ways, and get to work and make this country shine again, and have some damn pride again. Thank you for your statement/comments. It was perfectly written. Be safe, sir!

    Texas rancher here. I bet one of my hay barns is 10x the size of your house. 5 minute drive to get to my front gate.

    Under normal conditions I go weeks without leaving the ranch.

    No significant restrictions in my county.

    Zero impact on me so far.

    Most stark example of irony on the web today. :cheers:

    The thread question is being placed exactly where it belongs, in the hands of the States, and de facto the Governors. Most of them probably never thought they would have to make the tough life and death decisions they are now confronted with. We’ll see who has the fortitude and wisdom to do what’s needed.

    States get Federal funds for stuff don't they?

    Not sure why I just asked that.

    I don’t know.... if millions are going to die as you assert, you could be one of them. Anyway, I’ll go on record and state that millions will not die here in the U.S. and the fatalities won’t surpass last years flu fatalities.

    Good observation! Net effect of this ‘plandemic’ will be more federal control.

    Nobody knows how this will play out, but I see Trump putting it on the States where it belongs. Sure, the power and resources of the Fed are there to back up and augment what is being done. The Fed led the charge to recognize the problem and a call to action.

    This is how the country was envisioned, with the power resting in the States to do what is right for their people. What’s right for NY might not be best for Iowa. We’ve gotten so far of the track of what true Federalism is supposed to look like that people forgot about it and only want to know what the Fed “is going to do for me”.

    I don’t see DJT trying to increase Fed authority. Besides, it’s not only the right way to approach this, it’s politically brilliant.
