Of course because the predictions have been revised downward. Don't take my word, take what Dr. Fauci said:

Dr. Fauci: 'Possible' that millions could die in US

https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/vira...us/vp-BB11dCJn

He said millions could die if we did nothing to stop the virus.


Fauci Estimates That 100,000 To 200,000 Americans Could Die From The Coronavirus

https://www.npr.org/sections/coronav...he-coronavirus

March 29th he said 100,000 to 200,000 could die with the action we were taking.


Fauci: US death toll 'looks more like 60,000' than 100-200K estimate

https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...-200k-estimate

Then two weeks later he revised his numbers much lower.

Of course it will. Unless going to town means he is going to NYC. He is going to a town where lots of people social distance like himself because of low population density and large tracks of land. Should the town in Montana suffer financially like NYC just because the dopes in DC think that a one size fits all approach is best?

Yes there are red and blue states that did similar lock downs. But the states that resisted at first like Arizona, Oklahoma and the states without any formal lock down are all with red governors. And that was the topic of this thread.

Practical terms, Absolute Power DJT or the local mayor, have very little 'power' to restrict movement and ptp contact with out the implicit compliance of the people.
That's the big question right now.

All of the TN state parks are now closed indefinitely. I went to a state park that is mostly backcountry a week or two before the closures happened. The parking lot is small and really requires an SUV or something with some ground clearance to get into.

An idiot had taken a lowered Civic in there, gotten it stuck, and blocked the parking lot for both entering an exiting vehicles.

This is why things are getting locked down. You have people who aren't used to doing certain things engaging in complete idiocy ruining it for all.

That park has so much backcountry that it's nearly impossible to patrol. There is a gate at the front. The one way out in the rear is an old logging road that was paved over. There is a gate at one part of the rear on a spur road, but I don't think there is one on the main rear road going out into the community. In any event, there is an abandoned church with a parking lot a quarter to half mile beyond the exit at the bottom of the hill.

If you want to get in that park, you can with a little effort. There won't be any law back there besides maybe one TWRA ranger. Would you take a fisherman in who trespassed in this instance?

Unless it comes to dictating religion and then the right is all about telling us how we should live our lives.

That's an outdated perception of the right. I don't find that the modern right stresses Christianity that much, other than opposing abortion (which many atheists are against anyway).

One of the reasons that I voted for Trump was that I thought he would not support the religious community the way most Republicans have. That was one of my biggest disappointments of this administration.

He gives the religious right lip service, but has he passed any laws that they wanted?

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO.com) -- A "stay at home" ordinance for the city of Sioux Falls passed its first legal hurdle Wednesday.
Update: As of 4/15, the Sioux Falls meat plant has 644 cases of CV19 and is the number one hotspot in the country. SD has no shelter-in-place requirement. Has the governor been vindicated yet?
