What the hell does any of that have to do with Covid19? Why wouldn't they go after the criminals shooting and killing people EVERY day. When there isn't a virus scare its a-okay to go around murdering people in Baltimore???

Maybe if the mayor and whoever is going to be doing the "we're going to get you" part had this attitude all the time, they wouldn't have the crime problems that they have.
Agreed. I feel like mayors and governors have been directed to give “intimidating” speeches over all of this..... a bit of bull s***.

Baltimore's police are to busy trying to police there own crooked politicians to worry to much about what happen in the streets of Baltimore city, Last 2 Mayor were fourst out for money scams, and one is trying to be reelected for Mayor. Prosecutor want to drop all charges for non dangerous crime cases against the criminal. Because of the importance of worrying about the Covid19, so I guess the excuse " Covid19 made me do it" is good here in Baltimore City.

In Oregon the governor has effectively shut down life as we know it...she even stopped truck interstate and intrastate driving except for trucks that carry necessities for the grocery stores, if you drive a log truck you are shut down...big paper rolls outa work... the necessities drivers have an increased hours of service which scares me...when I drove I was in good shape mentally and physically and constantly fabricated my log book, so I can say that after about 13 to 15 hrs of driving a big truck with all the things that involved..your driving becomes dangerous...I hate the thought of the trucking industry shutting down...because that WILL bring the nation to a halt...everything you touch in your daily life came in some form or another on a big trk...from your make up, your gas, food, to your car.
Now this is the real scary news. Off and on for the past year I’ve considered spending the money to just get my Class A, I already spend a lot of time driving (pennies to trucker mileage but I also make a lot of stops as that’s the main part of my job) and seem to have what I call “small girl large truck syndrome” and have never met a vehicle I felt was too big, also seeing all the stuff on the road I do I respect the heck out of truckers as they see far more of the crap than I do. The school near me is $6000 for the A. My first words when the state of MA effectively started the shutdown process was “damn, at least the truckers still have jobs” because I care for office plants and the boyfriend is a chef, neither of us are in very stable industries right now (he’s lucky he’s at a convenience store kitchen because all his restaurant chef friends were laid off, food trucks out of luck). But scary to hear that even truckers are being cut, though I guess here where only really grocery stores are open what else would really be getting received, who knows if our plant truck from FL will even come in this week like it’s supposed to.
Amazon is shutting down deleiveries of non-essentials to MA last I heard.

Many jobs out there require a class A or B.

Well I went out this a.m. and did my weekly shopping (and post office run). I didn't notice any difference in the traffic. Just as many cars on the road. But when I got to Smart and Final, where I buy my week's supply of produce, the parking lot was mighty full. I was able to get six heads of romaine (I normally buy seven) and seven heads of green leaf lettuce. I was able to get seven packages of collards, turnip greens, and mustard greens. There were only three zucchini, but I was able to get the usual two packages of opuntia pads. All in all the produce department looked ok. I normally buy a 12 pack of tea/lemonaid, and they didn't have any of that. In fact, the sports drink/water aisle was pretty sparse. Then I went to my grocery store - Savemart. It was a whole different story there. No milk, no bread, no eggs. So if I want to make chicken fried steak with country gravy, that's off the table for a while. Plenty of candy and chips, but I don't buy that stuff. The meat shelves were totally empty. Well, not totally, there were two packages of veggie burgers in there. And, darn it! I forgot to buy ice cream. Shoot!

Same here.
No meat except the crappiest cuts of beef.
But I found some sausage.
I also scored some Lysol BATHROOM CLEANER that says it kills 99.9% of germs, etc. So, I figured bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, whatever.

20% of the newest U.S. hospitalized virus patients are between 20 and 55.
It seems to have mutated.
Mutated!? Ugh do you have any info on that?
I Hear a lot of “seems to have” or “potentially tested positive” These phrases are used to spread misinformation to masses. People already in a panic over an illness buy into that “potential tested positive” means positive. Step back and re-read the potential and realize everyone has the potential.. just means their being tested.... like tons of other people. They evacuated the Vegas airport control tower Last night for a person who “potentially tested positive”. People are behind that ridiculous decision, not a virus. I was picking my dad up from the airport last night and they were evacuating as he landed, just made it! Like really they were going to start sending planes elsewhere!?

Are those listed viruses killed by the lysol?
That's what it says. I didn't mean to post the Talk about bad timing part. I don't know how that got in there.

I loved driving trk..I have been in the 48 Continental states, my cat has walked on the ground in all those states...driving OTR was not a career choice...for me it was a life style...in my trk were plants, my cat, TV refrigerator, food talking books...everything I personally needed...I saw things and been places that the average person doesn't get to see or do...I can't say enough abt my life as an OTR driver...I was very good at it, and won several contests, do you have anybody who drives a big trk? They can teach you...driving school is not necessarily needed. I went to driving school on some kind of a grant, didn't cost me a dime...please don't give up on that dream...I got injured in 2003...retired me and I can't tell you how much I miss it...I won several awards beating out men (woo hoo!) in backing contests with a 53' trailer...my first award was at the Big Iowa 80 trk stop...I beat 12 men in a backing contest...I freakin loved driving and my ego made me practice and I was a damn good trk driver...circa 1980...sorry for the blurry pix 029.JPG 028.JPG

I got a little stir crazy and drove over to the ARBY'S drive through for the 2 for $6 fish sandwiches. They're very good. But no one was wearing gloves and we all handled cash.....
If I get this thing, it won't be much of a shocker. I need to get serious.

Everyday, I have my "last" fast food meal.
