This is kind of a News of the Weird kind of story...

No one allowed in open businesses in Boone without spending 14 nights straight in Watauga County, council rules -- https://myfox8.com/news/coronavirus/no- ... cil-rules/
:lol:
Yer not from around these parts, are you?

In all seriousness. . .

One of the reasons why so many town names are not pronounced the way they are spelled or you would think, dates to the Civil War. Towns made conscientious efforts to change the pronunciation of their burgs so they would know who the outsiders were.

This situation demonstrates perfectly why that could be useful.

By all accounts Larry Hogan in Maryland has been all over this thing. The main thing I have liked is how transparent and honest he is with his citizens.

I've liked Hogan even before all this. I wish we had a third party with people like him as its leaders. Socially moderate and economically conservative.

JP Morgan and (separately) the JP Morgan Chase Institute both have been producing some very informative reports and analyses throughout the pandemic.

I also enjoy reading the Federal Reserve's Beige Book, published about 8 times per year, which is a summary report from each regional Federal Reserve Bank, and national summary.

The next one is due out mid-week next week.
Then you may enjoy this as well, including the brief video at the top...Just one firm's proprietary way to analyze several indicators -- https://www.cnr.com/insights/speedometers.html
More interested in what JP's less successful but infinitely more fun brother Captain Morgan has to say. :drunk

Imagine a state. A state that cares about its small businesses.

https://backontrack.in.gov/ppemarketplace.htm

Indiana is sending out reopening supplies to businesses with under 150 people. For free.

Meanwhile Illinois is (trying to and failing at) criminalizing operating businesses, increasing workers compensation insurance premium rates, and picking winners and losers.

He can “order” all he wants but he has no right to do so. When your base is super Christian but also super states rights he’s splitting it down the middle here.

Many have said the Governors can "order" churches closed all they want, but that they don't have the right to do so either.

I'd say the vast majority of voters don't understand the 'state's rights' concept anyways, though.

ICEMANBU Thanks for the update there. I was born in Baltimore many a many moons ago. I always try to keep on top of what my birth place is up to. Still wish we had a third party that was truly socially libertarian/progressive, economically conservative and would do all in its power to reign in special interest. Neither party appears to be able to control or want to control outside influence.
Wow, Baltimore and now San Francisco. Good Lord. I can't imagine.
There's more to my life than just Balmore and San Francisco. One thing I most miss about Balmore is those blue crabs, listening to the O's and drinking Nattie Boh on a hot summer day.

How bout this. I have never lived anywhere but Peoria. My parents built a home in 1958 after they had 4 kids, then me and another came along. I lived in that home until I bought a house before I got married at 21, 4 blocks from them. I bought another house 5 years later when we had 3 kids in the same general area of town. I bought another house 5 years later when we had 6 kids 4 blocks away and lived there 10 years and had # 7 there. Moved into current house 16 years ago which is a mile from all the others. So in 58.5 years I have lived in 5 houses all within probably a mile and half from each other in one small section of Peoria.
Thanks J.J. for what I consider sound advice!

I’m not a lawyer but I would think since it is in the 3rd article it’s not left to the states in the 12th. If the national government is prohibited from the power to do something that infringe on people’s rights they’re not going to allow the states to do it

Ok so did he "order" them open, or did he order that they could open. The way the tweet is written, its as if he is demanding them reopen. Isnt he just saying that churches can reopen, and its up to the individual church. If a business is deemed essential, that doesnt mean that business has to be open, but can be.

Im not a Constitution expert, but is it the 10th amendment that Pritzker invoked by extending the stay at home past the 30 days and then the "rule" that anyone violating would be subject to jail time? Only an emergency session of the State legislature forced him to rescind.
