The mental health consequences of a self-inflicted economic shutdown & isolation

As I wrote on March 30, Knox County, Tennessee was seeing an increase in suspected suicides during coronavirus pandemic. Mayor Glenn Jacobs was shocked and it made him wonder if they were handling this the right way.

Again: Shutting down one’s livelihood and the economic machine that drives EVERYTHING for EVERYONE has consequences. A severe economic depression is about to hit this country due to governments shutting everything down to try and “save” all of us.

Now this from Indiana:

I wonder if the bureaucrats and “experts” factored in depression, domestic abuse and financial hardship into their “flatten the curve” models and mandates?

Everyone thinks they are the police: Citizen call shuts down brewery produce sales

Erick Erickson reported on Twitter the following: A restaurant in Macon, GA has been selling its produce to customers who can’t find what they need at the grocery store. Someone has called the law and shut them down because the scale they use in house for cooking isn’t a shop scale for merchandise sales.

From the Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen Instagram post:

“Your daily Mercantile Update is a sad one. As of today the program is suspended.

You see, apparently someone here in town called the Department of Health to tell them that we were breaking rules because we were not using a “for legal trade” scale for the items that we were selling by the pound. That part is true, our scales are not for legal trade because we don’t need scales that are legal trade for our regular business model.

Well, rules are rules and we always do our best to comply. We looked into buying a “for legal trade” scale but the long and cumbersome process to get it certified didn’t make sense given the temporary nature of our Mercantile program.

The bottom line is that some unhappy person has taken advantage of the system, forcing us to shut down the Mercantile program.

This is a real shame because the program was promoting social distancing by helping people avoid the grocery stores. But most importantly, the PBK Mercantile program was providing 1-2 extra jobs for our employees during this tough time. So, congrats unhappy person…….you shut down a great program that was doing nothing but good!

Just think how much worse things can get when people are locked up for ANOTHER FOUR WEEKS and have nothing better to do than “report” on their fellow citizens.

Judge issues cease-and-desist order to Hobby Lobby in Dallas County, TX

The good judge who issued this order is Clay Jenkins. From his Twitter bio: “Chief Elected Official of Dallas County. 2nd Largest County in the Lone Star State. Known in TX as the County Judge. Home to 2.6 million.”

He ordered a Hobby Lobby store closed. Read the Order here.

Apparently there’s some rhyme and reason as to what businesses local governments determine are “essential.”

Liquor stores are open. Some liquor stores also sell food so that’s why they are deemed “essential.”

Home Depots are open because they sell supplies like plexiglass, which businesses in my town have had to install at checkout counters.

Wouldn’t Hobby Lobby be deemed essential since they sell fabric that people may need to make masks?

If the liquor stores, Home Depots and Wal-Marts can implement healthy/safe practices to be open, then why can’t Hobby Lobby? The judge explained (in some tweet that I can’t find now) that it’s about making sure less people get sick so they don’t get overrun at hospitals (basically bed capacity). The local governments are shutting down businesses based on predictions and models.

Our economy is in for a world of HURT in about a couple more weeks..

If you don’t own a firearm (or two, three, four) no worries: The police are just minutes away…

The Wuhan virus worldwide epidemic, caused by the Chicoms and enabled by our DNC-run media, has spurred a unique phenomenon: U.S. law-abiding citizens are ordered to stay home while criminals are going free.

See the following examples:

Philly Police: No Arrests for Auto Theft, Burglary, Vandalism, and more, over Coronavirus
NYC to begin releasing inmates amid coronavirus outbreak
U.S. judge widens order, urging ICE to release migrant illegal alien families with young children in coronavirus outbreak
Ohio jail to release hundreds of inmates amid coronavirus concerns
Some non-violent, low-level inmates being released from Sacramento jails amid coronavirus pandemic

The left tell you that you don’t need a gun to protect yourself. After all, you can just vomit or pee on an intruder to stop them!

GOOD LUCK with that, my friend…

Keep ‘em locked and loaded. Because our Americans streets are about to get very, very dangerous.

Suburban Moms During the Coronavirus Outbreak

This would be funny if it wasn’t so true…

I’ve been seeing lots of tweets about people publicly shaming others for “not following the rules” as they determine one should be doing during this pandemic.

My small town – which basically has been shut down since March 17 – is going into “Shelter in Place” mode tomorrow at noon while simultaneously opening up more businesses they deem “essential.”

They are also ordering a curfew from 10:00 pm until 5:00 am. From their directive: “Citizens out during this time for work will be required to carry and provide, if necessary, a letter documenting the essential service they provide on the official letterhead of their organization. (Letters should include: The employer on official letterhead or with official logo if applicable, the name of the employee who is deemed an essential worker, the time of day or night in which the worker is expected to travel for job duties, the type of essential service the employee provides, contact information for employer/company to verify given information, a signature from a superior. Employees with badges for given essential jobs, still need letters.)”

We have 565 positive cases of the Wuhan virus in Oklahoma. Our total population is 3.5 million.

One of the reasons the city mayor implemented “Shelter in Place” and a curfew? “The number of complaints and concerns received this weekend concerning crowding at certain locations.”

Trust me: I saw comments on the city’s Facebook page about people complaining about kids not “social distancing” at the hoops and front yards. How do you know if the kids that aren’t social distancing don’t all live in one house together?

How did we get here? I give you the following funny…

Welcome to America!

More suicides as a result of Wuhan virus isolation: Two Air Force cadets commit suicide while at the Academy

As I said yesterday, this will have an impact on the health of millions of Americans.

From Yahoo: Two deaths of cadets by suspected suicide since Thursday at the Air Force Academy, where 1,000 seniors are the only students on any military campus in the country amid the COVID-19 pandemic, has rattled the service from senior leadership to its trainees.

The Air Force’s top civilian and military brass rushed to the academy on Monday to reassure cadets and steer the service through the turbulence of a global crisis and tragedies close to home.

Unlike the Army and Navy, the Air Force has kept cadets on campus – socially distant in single rooms, away from their roommates – since the coronavirus began upending military and civilian life earlier this month. Upon graduation, cadets and midshipmen are commissioned as U.S. military officers. At the Air Force Academy, new grads could serve as a source of new pilots to fill a shortfall, or new officers for the Space Force.

Alumni of the academy and parents of cadets have told USA TODAY, and filled private online chats, with concern about the Air Force response to the coronavirus and the deaths of the two students.

The parent of one member of the 2020 class said the first suicide should have triggered a massive response by Air Force leadership to prevent a copycat act. It was not clear from communication from academy staff to the parents that enough attention was given to each cadet after the first death , said the parent, who asked not to be identified to protect their child from retribution.

Precautions taken to fight coronavirus could have meant fewer civilian and uniform staff members were on campus to have eyes on each cadet to see how they were handling stress, the parent said.

Never let a crisis go to waste: Right on cue…

From Jesse Kelly’s Twitter timeline last night:

Jesse has been pretty spot on with his predictions about the outfall from the reaction to the Wuhan virus. Many of us can see what this “pandemic” is going to (was designed?) to create…

Your Monday funny…

OK, even I laughed at this. And I’m facing a similar situation as my military boyfriend (finally stateside!) is in self-quarantine. We are communicating by phone while he sits in the car on the street and me on the front porch. At least we can see each other 🙂

A tweet joke from The General:

“A week into isolation it’s upsetting for me to see my wife at the living room window staring aimlessly into space w/tears running down her cheeks. It breaks my heart to see her this way. I’ve thought of how I can cheer her up so I’ve considered letting her in but rules are rules.”
