    Losing some of these resources would not be good but I'm very confident going vegetarian for a few months isn't going to kill anyone.
    Taking away a MAJOR source of food for the planet will kill a lot of people.

    Keep in mind that the reserve pipeline in toilet paper of 2% was exhausted the first day the shelter was started and took weeks to recover, and TP is not perishable like veggies are. Moving people to a vegetable diet will result in mass panic if nothing else, and panic almost always results in some deaths.

    I would invest in some bootstraps for her. I’ve been told if you have those you can pull yourself up out of anything.

    Capitalism is not an instrument of force. It's a choice ... not an easy choice, but still a choice.

    There is force in place to make people in the military go to work, but really nobody else I can think of, and military people agree in advance to the terms, so even then it's their choice, and they have legal recourse in place if they object to what they are being told to do but they do have an actual threat of force. I might be missing some and I know actual force has been applied to try to make people work in the past but I don't think it's happening now.

    School bus drivers always seemed to be the friendliest of people in my experience. Wouldn’t be surprised if it pulls in a lot of people who really just want to interact with kids in a low stress way.

    It’s amazing how they ‘**** it up’ every time one of these programs get instituted.

    At least shining a light on some of this has shamed some businesses into returning these.

    this is why having me on ignore is stupid, immature, childish. you miss bipartisan/important information. here and the Joe Biden thread too.
    1. Rephrase your first paragraph. The last sentence should be “Mike Pence should have worn a mask and he didn’t; he deserves to be criticized.

    If a job reopens that could put them at risk, and they are told they need to go back to work or they will lose their job, what options do they really have?

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. yes Mike Pence should have worn a mask. I don't know a good reason why he wouldn't have.

    don't get your panties in a bunch because you don't like what I'm posting.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    a person is smart. people are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals.
