has become infected you won't go off on police for trying to enforce common-sense prevention measures.

Honestly, you really DON'T GET IT, do you? And, no, this in no way suggests the crowded churches should not likewise be addressed. Given one of those preachers was arrested in deep red Florida, I'd say there are are some doing just that.

No one in my family would even consider a party at this time. It was planned, invitations went out and it's been postponed till summer.

What's wrong with people?

We have a hysterical situation here in Colorado......
.
They decided Liquor stores were not essential, and there were near riots with lines around the block, so they recanted and let them stay open. They decided firearms stores were not essential, I guess the powers to be didn't ever hear of the NRA and they recanted and let them stay open. Then they decided that acupuncturists were not essential medical services, but Physical Therapists and Chiropractors were, but the acupuncturists still can't open......They decided that Hobby Lobby and Joanns Fabrics were not essential, but those outfits just said screw you, we are staying open. The residential construction industry were ruled not essential, they also said screw you we aren't shutting down.

Nothing makes sense anymore.........

I'll tell you what is really funny is New Orleans screaming for help, after not cancelling a shoulder to shoulder crowd of 1.1 Million for an entire week. And then Spring Break crowds in Florida on beaches they refused to close and now they are screaming for help in Southern Florida.......Of course the worst thing about those two, is that after they were all through co-mingling they loaded on airplanes and returned to their homes all over the U.S.

I see where the mega churches are ignoring the declaration of them being non-essential and cramming tons of people in close quarters for an hour..........
