Plumbing is essential yes to a certain degree because people need functioning indoor plumbing for health reasons but maybe the construction side is not essential in a time like this. So either essential in times of emergency or not.

You can put about 95% of the population in somewhere on that list.

I am still calling BS on this coronavirus is worse than the flu....the numbers they post, and thats on multiple websights about the amount of sick and dead still dont come close even if you multiplied todays numbers by 10X, and that would just be the flu cases in the USA...
yes people are sick and dying, but I still say there are more politics behind it than illness....and many times the cure to an illness is worse than the illness itself....to financially cripple a nation because a handful of people are sick with a virus, and in reality thats all each country has..is a handful of sick people compared to their full population and again everyone of those countries lose many times the amount of people to the common flu...


so when this whole virus is done and they add up all the sick and dead and come up with the mortality rate and all that info , will be the ONLY time they can say if it was less, equal or worse than the flu..
yes I believe common sense distancing from people and taking precautions of washing hands, disinfection public places , gloves, masks should be done, but this mass shut down of the economy , not so much..
and if your one of the people that have a weakened immune system or very old , well ANY sickness or any virus could be fatal or critical for you, then take extra precautions...
this has been a huge social control experiment if you ask me..scare the crap out of people into submission....the question is what will be next and for what???

Also the hype about social distancing and closing down businesses is to minimize from everyone of getting sick at the same time and overload hospitals. They are trying to lower the curve to a more gradual influx of patients.

Even without the virus the health care system is already over loaded like 200%. And they don't have enough beds or doctors so they kick you out even if you are not well enough. Your limb is literally severed you may have to wait a while. It's so bad in my area nurses are quitting left and right and changing careers because of the stress and mandatory over time while patient can't be attended to.

I had to wait like 8 years to get a family doctor and that's only because they forced doctors to take us on otherwise you'll be sick until you die.

Well I braved the zombie apocalypse today. Met with the Spartan rep to order a new machine. To get my 30+y/o 300 up and running right would have been about #1k. Time to bite the bullet.

Still see people driving around, walking the dog... much less traffic than normal, but people still getting out.

Stopped a convenience store for a Gatorade.

Tomorrow we have a heater to install.

once again proving socialized medicine is a death wish for the citizens of that country, thats why we are fighting like hell to get rid of the democraps that want to force that on the American people..

I like to keep them guessing and slightly scared of what I do...

I predict a baby boom 9 months from now with all of these shutdowns.

There is a reason we send them outdoors to enjoy the fresh air, and it has nothing to do with not wanting them in front of the TV all day.
