    Default April 30th

    Potus is asking that the country continue this shutdown for 4 more weeks.

    Its going to be hard to recover from that economically.

    They said during the briefing that they expect 80-160K to die even with us staying shut down until April 30.

    People will get back going before that. I could already tell that that the shutdown in Florence won't last too much longer for better or worse. I feel for the restaurants and those who don't really have a choice.

    There may be rough times ahead. Character will be tested.

    Another month and America will die not just its citizens. Barring being in the woods all alone & Living off the land, not sure how we all won’t come in contact with it at the rate it’s spreading. It’s killing way more than just “old folks”.

    Guess they’ll be doing another multi trillion dollar stimulus. That’s a tough pill to swallow economically. And Rodney is right about Florence. Old and young are out and about living life.

    I have seen things from this virus, at the hospital, that will make you feel very uneasy about the days to come. So very sick young people. I just hope Im only seeing the 1 or 2 percent.

    Listen to what the Health experts are telling you. America can’t die. It will get worse before it gets better. We are tougher than this virus. Hunker down and stay calm.

    No...No he isn't. I'm telling you right now. I95 is humming

    Not quite normal but damn close, and that aint Florence or Santee.

    Americans aren't use to sitting around. Ok, maybe some porch honkys, but other wise we go get it done.

    They better figure out how to protect the healthcare facilities and get them the gear and get out the way. You expect the country who beat the british at the height of world domination, fought a civil war, won 2 WW, and built the biggest economic engine the world has ever scene to sit back and watch??

    Hell no.

    Every generation has its moment. This is ours.

    I hope and pray we get off our ass build protective gear and go to work!
    Oooo, how that three hundred pounds amaze me
    When she gets down in the gravy
    God almighty, what a soulful groove
    When she gets down in the barbecue
    Three hundred pounds
    Tall as she round
    And every pound of that body so fine
    I can hardly b'lieve that it's mine - oh man!

    80k-160k deaths predicted

    Cost to the economy to much to calculate

    At some point people will start to do the math and put a price on human life

    How many lives will the 4 more months of this save?

    Is it worth it?

    Yep, the no pay part has not hit home yet real hard but is coming.

    Just hunker down and save every penny you can right now , I hope 4/30 and the worse is over at this point but I am not too sure.

    Honestly I am thinking June 1 at best

    Almost 57 yrs old and never seen or nor heard of anything like this and hope I never do again

    I like most am trying to support local restaurants but at some point it will really start catching up to all of us.

    We did take out at The Galley on Lake Hartwell last couple weekends but I think they made the right call. As of Saturday night they just shut down until COIVD 19 is over which tells me they must be debt free and can just let employees draw unemployment

    You can only lose money so long

    If this thing still dragging on by June 1 I saw they will do this again

    I think NY is in the 4th inning watch them. People will stay home when people they know are stuck in a bedroom 14 days and a couple of friends die. Seeing is believing for many in SC. A bunch of right wing pundits are career killing.

    This stuff will sweep the nation hopefully stagger enough to lessen the impact some.

    it wont last forever and we will come back just fine.

    You have to realize a LOT of businesses are still working. LOTS of them.

    Just because a few restaurants and a hotel have trouble doesnt mean the sky is falling.

    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.
