  1. Family there been fishing as normal, going to grocery, Home Depot, Walmart, Sam's, Costco, out to buy food to go at Whataburger, Sonic, most local restaurants. All convenience stores open. Took several trips to other towns to see the flowers in bloom. Stopped at convenience store and bought food in those towns. BTW, lot more than 10 people allowed in Home Depot, Walmart, and Sam's there. Sure schools are closed, no restrictions as to stay home or wear masks.If you read the Governor's Order, you will see that he does not reference any type of "lockdown". The "thrill" headline is the only place that is mentioned. I don't call that a "lock down". But, YMMD. Don't believe all news, some is "fake" and "thrill seeking". Stay safe.
  2. Interesting stat: As of today, 732 have died in Texas from the virus. During the 2018-2019 Flu Season, over 11, 000 Texans died from the flu. Perspective is very important. Texas was not and is not a "lock down" state.
  3. Attacks have begun for sure. Hurts the original narrative.. Kinda reminds you of this Forum, no ? Time to shame those who venture to speak their own mind, contrary to the mob belief.

  5. This does not state anything about "young and healthy". Can't find anything about what % had underlying health problems, which was the vast majority of deaths in NY. From everything that I have read, underlying problems seems to the the major factor. Got anything to the contrary?

  7. I can assure you that "ignore" is a wonderful choice. I really love it when I post and see 4-5 of the "gang" post immediately after it, but they don't even realize they are "pissiin' in the wind". Always makes me laugh. Laughter is good for the soul, no?
  8. I find it quite interesting that at the beginning of this "thingy" many were hollering that the real "infection rate" could be just unbelievably high, and deaths would be in the millions in each country. This was what stroked the "fear". Now, as reports come out seemingly to support their "fears" about the infection rate, (but not the death rate), they are trying to discredit those reports, which support their original speculation. Wonder why??? Wonder what role more infections but less deaths will do to the "fear" angle? Interesting.
  9. Florida has flattened the curve drastically because they attacked taking care of the most vulnerable in their State, the elderly and those in nursing homes. That strategy paid off big time for them. It appears more and more that the virus has infected many times more than have been reported, making its death rate perhaps dependent on high risk factors. Young (and older) people without other health concerns seem to be riding this out without significant problem. Our attention needs to be on those high risk, and let others go about their "normal" lives.

  11. I believe the first question should be "why use the word afraid?", don't you? Without that insulting word, kam would not replied.
  12. Unless AMLO declares Martial Law, no state governor can suspend any civil rights of anyone. They can, however, demand that you wear a mask, and can limit crowds, enforce social distancing, similar orders. Pretty much the same NOB, except each governor can declare Martial Law, IF, that is included in the Constitution of that State. If not, they cannot do it. Only then can they restrict personal freedoms. The President(NOB) can also do this, but his ability to enforce in all states would be unmanageable. Easier to enforce in a community or maybe one state.
  13. If you check the border crossing site, that should give you the answer. ( I would think you would need a good reason to enter at this time and not sooner).
  14. I think it has more to do with lack of common sense. Or, as someone said "Stupid is as Stupid does" ! Remember, you can't fix Stupid !
  15. So, if the new study out of Stanford in CA is close to correct, then as many as 59,500,000 people in the US could have/had the virus, with 38,000 deaths. That would mean this virus, although spreading much more rapidly, is much less a killer than the regular flu. Wouldn't that be wonderful if it actually turns out to be correct !
  16. So does that mean no one that buys a new car in Mexico needs to take it to the dealer for any service? Or did you just get lucky?
  17. Is that information posted on your site?
  18. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/imss-doctors-warn-they-will-strike/?fbclid=IwAR1kToRxEWBSpXd0fPVWtMOQnxgrtnFLYHvDT3-rk0PhR93lDGOnlkeFsZA Also, the related coverage about Puebla at the bottom.
  19. Come on, Mostly ! Tell me again that these cities are not pop. centers. All at, near, or more than 100,000: PV,, Lagos de Moreno, Tepatitlan, Cuidad Guzman, Hacienda Sante Fe, Ocotlan. Most cases in Guad ? How many do you think they have tested in those other pop. centers? It is what it is, nothing more, nothing less. We are talking Mexico here, ok?
  20. You read my mind? Wow ! I, too, have that "college" degree you are so proud of, actually 3, and fortunately I have some common sense and a lot of different experiences, as do others here. So, where is YOUR plan of what he could/should have done differently as I asked, or do you not have one. Let us see it. Put up...
  21. So, what would you have had the governor of Washington State (or NY or NJ or Michigan) do differently? Are you offering something positive and constructive, or you just criticizing someone else, as there is an abundance of that and putting the blame on others, without offering anything new.
