    Look at the Brightside. All those people sitting idling in those vehicles are burning gas at a cheaper rate since 1982.

    So, they should all STAY THE FUCK HOME…..

    Now if the Guvnah would have only done this back in 1973 Florida would still be the awesome place it once was.

    If you want to get into FL head to Dublin GA and follow hwy 441 south and take a left on hwy 94 just past Fargo. It will turn into FL hwy 2 and you will go back and forth over state lines with it becoming Ga 185 then Fl 121 south. If you do get stopped tell them you are bringing toilet paper to you aunt in Macclenny. Be sure to have TP in the backseat.

    They’re checking folks coming eastbound on I-10 as well.

      This is why people should have bugged out when the first few cases popped up in the USA. Anyone watching it in China knew it was going to cause hysteria or should have known.

      Rather than I-10, people should just rent or buy a boat at this point. If I ever decide to live in Alaska, its going to be helo and boat access only.

      As well they should.

    MONTANA IS CLOSED AS OF TODAY. 3-31-2020

    So they’re stopping everyone so they can tell non-residents to self-quarantine? Why not just put up programmable signs with the necessary messages? It’d get the same results, traffic would flow and the officers manning the checkpoints could go chase criminals AND potentially avoid getting infected.

    Somebody didn’t think this through very well.

      That’s what Texas did. I drove from Knoxville through Arkansas to Texas yesterday and expected a road block at the Texas state line. Nope, just a sign stating suckers from Louisiana had to self quarantine for 14 days. Traffic was not light, but less than normal and made the trip nice.

    Looks to me like they are stopping mostly trucks. You know, the ones delivering all their food and stuff. Idiots. But what more can you expect from the mildly incompetent bureaucrats everywhere, (people who can’t get a job anywhere else but in government at some level) ? This virus flap is exposing government idiocy and stupidity at all levels. It’s also exposing the power mad loonies lurking in the halls of government, Remember all this come election time.

    More people die from the flu.
    What makes this virus so special?
    So every year we are going to have to shut the country down now?

      Media and governments caught on to the hysteria and realized they could use it to overstep their offices even more. Less liberty, restriction of civil rights, significantly increased government power, etc. A hysterical, scared, people, will give all their freedoms up if the government even hints that they will keep the tax cattle safe.

      The flu kills like 12,000-60,000 a year.
      MRSA kills around 13,000/yr
      Heartdisease, 600,000/yr
      Cancer, 600,000/yr
      MEDICAL MALPRACTICE, aka, killer doctors, kill around 250,000+ a year.
      Suicides are 42,000+ a year…

      IMHO, the Wu Tang Cough was a bad disease, engineered or otherwise, and has been hijacked as a psyop. Its a total run on expanding the powers of the government.

      Since I live in the rural countryside, I basically live in the bug out fortress and am hardly affected by it. Aside from not having my favorite frozen pizzas. I need a freezer just for those.

      TL:DR Nothing makes it special, the deepstate and media just saw an opportunity to manufacture a crisis for their own gain and jumped on it.

    They were doing it again today ( tuesday) I was northbound on I95 just before the Georgia border, it looked to me that the cars were vectored into a weigh station and the trucks were continuing on. there was a couple of mile backup. There must have been 20 cop cars there. No problems getting into georgia or south carolina.

    Either the Senate and House agreed with a 2/3rds majority to overturn the first amendment to the Constitution (which protects the right to peaceful assembly), got the signature of the President and then had it ratified by 38 states and did all this without telling anyone,

    Or,

    The Government is doing something it doesn’t actually have any authority (other than the threat of force) to do.

    Not saying social distancing is bad idea. I’m fortunate enough to be able to work from home for the duration and am doing so. I’m just wondering if anybody has actually read the Constitution or knows how our country is supposed to work.
