People are starting to turn on the restrictions placed by Governors in multiple States. Andy Beshear is no exception. A lot of people liked Beshears response in the beginning, but now, with mass layoffs (myself included), small businesses closing and uncertainty where the next paycheck will come from, people are starting to get frustrated. It will only get worse from here, sadly.

It will also only get worse if everything opens back up again. If he ends the restrictions we'll be back to where we were, if not worse, in no time.

Just read a good point on a facebook post.

Here's a very appropriate analogy:
"The curve is flattening; we can start lifting restrictions now" = "The parachute has reduced our rate of descent; we can take it off now"

There is n data to back up that social distancing has worked. We do not know why the virus has peaked quicker than expected and caused less deaths. The hypothesis is that social distancing has slowed the spread, but we cannot prove this.

It is quite possible that the virus was more widespread than initially thought and ran its natural course through the population.

The motto was “flatten the curve” and then we can get back to work. We have flattened the curve and no hospitals have been overwhelmed. Now the Motto is “prevention of the second wave”. Do you see the narrative changing??

Government overreach has occurred and who knows when our rights will be returned.

I initially liked Beshears response but he has now gone too far.

Who knows how Bevin would have handled the situation.

Beshear has said he plans to return the people's capitol to the people of Kentucky, and rightfully so.

I guess it all depends on who ye are ....huh?

Bevin closed Kentucky's capitol to the public when life was normal and there was no pandemic. Huge difference, and there is no valid comparison with present conditions.

This Pandemic has been horrific, but I think it is a time we need to stand together as Americans, as opposed to Partisan fighting and division.
Together we are strong and can get through anything.


(I mean this not so much for the people of this forum, but as our country and society in General....which I guess would include City Data too though.)

Is this true?

https://babylonbee.com/news/kentucky...bXroL6cTWDZTY0

I know, much of what you see on the old interweb ain't true or has been rearranged to say the least but, I sure hope this ain't true.

I haven't heard of it until I seen this.
