Courthouses might be next. My second job got shutdown since it's a non-essential business.Sucks but luckily my other job doesn't plan on shutting  down anytime soon

Courthouses ALREADY are next. I've read a lot of news reports of courthouses being closed and cases being postponed to later dates.


P.S. - Kobuk's Cafe in Furtopia City will be reducing hours of operation to 9am to 5pm. Also dining-in option will no longer be available. We also have no delivery service as we are too small a business. But we will offer take-out as an option.

A few things that really have me worried right now is:
Public transit such as buses for example.
Mail service
Banks

I'm most particuarly worried about buses and banks. I can't own and drive a car due to bad eyesight. So I depend on the bus to get around. Particuarly to the grocery store. If the buses stop running, I'm screwed.  x_x
Banks are another issue. How are people supposed get get money if the banks are closed?

Totally disappointed with the  version of Beastars on Netflix. It's been censored. There is one word that's spoken by Legosi that is so important to the rest of the story. Not only was that word changed but even his reaction to saying it was edited out of the video.  Really was trying to get around everything else. Seeing that was my breaking point. Why do they dumb things down for American audiences?

I'm glad I watched it online before it came to Netflix. You're right cause I've realized a lot has been censored out which is hella dumb. I have no clue why they have to censor everything

Censoring almost anything from overseas has been going on for decades or longer. Anything aimed at children is particuarly censored. WE MUST PROTECT THE CHILDREN! is the usual rallying cry. Sometimes, the censoring comes from parent groups, or it may be church and religious groups, or it may be the government, or even Hollywood, or book publishers.
But.........sometimes it may not be censoring at all, but rather something got "lost in the translation" so to speak. ;)

I just read the following on CNN and my first thought was "Way to go, Trump. Throw the American people under the bus why don't you.".  :goldpissed: :goldpissed: :goldpissed:

Total imbecile. Moron.

Trump urges governors to secure additional medical equipment on their own

From CNN's Kaitlan Collins

President Trump urged governors on a call today to try to secure additional medical equipment on their own without waiting for the federal government to intervene, though he did say they would try to help.

"We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves," Trump said on the call, according to a person familiar.

He was discussing what health experts say is a serious need for more respirators and ventilators to deal with the influx of coronavirus patients.

232 days left and even with Trump's begging the treasury to drop
interest rates, as I expected this did little good, and the stock market
dropped again today. So Trump is running out of options to keep 
a falling aecconomy from continuing down. So  it's time he realized
it's the health crisis  that is driving the economy,  no matter what
he wants it to be. So it's time he gets out of the way  and let the
experts do their job.

The states will have to work together, and not depend on Trump.
Or we could end up getting little done to save lives. The GOP and
Trump see the aid the Democrats are pushing for as socialistic and
don't want any part of it. This is why Moscow Mitch closed the senate
for the long weekend. To give GOP members time to fight for their
big money supporters.

We can only hope the public will let the GOP know they are putting
their party at risk if they don't help those who really need it.  The
If things get bad enough, this country could be pushed toward
socialism inspite of the wishes of the GOP and Trump. All societies
need a bit of socialism. It's time the rich are forced to deal with it.

The corona virus has pushed our society out in front of the GOP, and
Trump. People need help. If they can't work they can't pay the bills, so that
leaves the government to keep society together. Something Trump doesn't
understand how to do, and is shaking in his boots for fear everything is going
to fall  down arounnd him.

It's disasters like this that get leaders in real trouble, because it generates
the fear that takes a real leader to cure.  Empty pkromisses by the GOP and
Trump just won't cut it.

It's time Trump stops trying to tell the public it's all fine and in control, and start
leading for a change. I fear he just doesn't know how to do it, and is afraid to try.,
for fear of losing.

The GOP controlled senate is back, but Moscow Mitch and his cronies are in a back
room trying to figure out how to save their rish supporters money. It's time they
start worring about the public and do what needs to be done, inspite of what
their rich frends want.  Otherwise they may be looking for a job come next
November.

This link takes you to an article on GOP work in the Senate.
blocking legislation in the senate. Too much to list here..

You can find out more at the following links. I don't have a
direct link to the Mueller Report, but You really should read
it. One of these sites below should have a link to it, and the
