    I've heard 4.5 meters and 10.5 meters. Wear a mask, dont wear a mask.
    The misinformation is all we have.

    It should be obvious to everyone by now that this was all planned and done on purpose.

    I cant imagine how people will pay bills next month with most of my town not working.
    Most people I know dont have much if any savings, small children, multiple jobs.
    Crested Butte ski resort has closed early and tourism will be dead all summer I'm guessing.
    There are signs posted along the highway telling people not to stop in Gunnison.

    I feel like we are definitely in "The Greatest Depression" now which has been a long time coming.
    The average citizen can see it now and it directly affects them.

    It's not a guessing game about when it will strike, it's actually here.

    I never would have guessed it would be ushered in with a virus, and then everyone would willingly stay home from work and crash the economy THEMSELVES!
    Hahaha I could have never of guessed this would happen in 100 years.
    A couple hundred dead and the media pumping fear is all it takes.
    The sheep have run right off a cliff!

    As a migrant in the US I have already been warned by people at work that the people will not comply with this peacefully for very long...
    Idaho and other states are being bullied by the others, for not implementing stricter measures. Guns and ammo here is as scarce at TP in Aus

    On my list for this summer is a backhoe and sawmill. Also another well drilled on the property.
    I pray to the gold gods every night to have mercy. I've been a studious servant.

    The first on the "Corona Crisis legislation we'll sneak through" is the "Cashless Welfare Card".

    I predict this will be rolled put super fast, ignoring the trial data with the excuse being that with the recession/depression the people needing welfare is heading to the 15% mark and because "rorting".

    Universal Basic Income is being discussed as we speak, I dare say it will be implemented starting in the US sooner than we think.

    If we had a legit govt and supreme court it wouldnt happen.
    Constitution says only gold and silver is allowed to settle debts but they dont like that rule.
    And the swamp gets deeper.....
