    Back to the subject. I deal with the owners of Billy’s and I can tell you this is not a decision they made in hast. Other restaurants in Clearfield got together and discuss it and decided to open while following CDC guild lines. They were already doing take outs which had people in the building. They set up the dining area for proper distancing. They are using disposable wares. Basically the only difference is people can sit 6 feet apart to eat instead of standing six feet apart to pick up food. As a business owner they made a decision to save their restaurant and employees. If you don’t want to support them then don’t it is your choice. I personally think I would feel safer there than Walmart or Hobbie Lobby. Yes they went against Wolfe’s orders but so did Dr Lavine when she removed her mother from a nursing home during the outbreak. I find it very difficult to follow orders from someone the seems to have a personal agenda.

    I don’t see the mockery in it. I see a serious question.. why are some things allowed open and others are not. U can go to Walmart and be elbow to elbow but u cant go to a restaurant or certain businesses. I don’t understand a lot of what is going on. I still have yet to meet or hear of someone knowing someone with covid. I think people need to be cautious but not overly cautious. I know what I say is wrong to you and is what u think of others also but just think about the logic of all this.. there is none besides government control and to scare the people. It’s where they want us...

    On a Corona shopping note

    My opinion: I think some people are still under the impression that the lockdown was meant to eradicate the virus. It wasn't. It was meant to slow it down to reasonable infection rates that our health care system could handle. Businesses will and must reopen. Staying home forever will not eradicate the virus, not in a mobile society. The most vulnerable populations must still exercise great caution, and the rest of the population, reasonable caution. Yes, more people will contract the virus. Things are not going to be back to pre-virus normal, but just don't be stupid. And be kind. Not everybody is in the same situation. I need to do what is reasonable for me and you need to do what is reasonable for you.

    I got a great idea! The Democrats can all stay home the rest of their lives to whine and complain about the virus while the Republicans can all go back to work SAFELY, ... as everyone has been doing the last 4-6 weeks. There are thousands of people working RIGHT NOW in our area and I don't hear too much complaining from them... Most of the small businesses that aren't essential in this area are all ready to re-open! Let's do it and be SAFE!! I was in Lowe's yesterday, it was very busy. Everyone had a mask on and 98% of the customers were doing social distancing. You will always have that one or two that just don't care. I was in there about an hour and when I left I got in the car, took my mask off and used my hand sanitizer. I felt very confident that I didn't catch the virus from anyone in Lowe's and felt great so I came home and worked outside the rest of the day. It was a great day to be outside yesterday!! Please use common sense with safety measures and I'm sure we will be back to semi-normal before school starts back up in the fall!

    Also how will this fit in with the "open container" law in Pa. How will they seal the drink that you can tell if it was accessed while driving? You can go buy a mixed drink for the road but still can't get a friggin haircut! You just can't fix stupid.

    I have not been sick for two months. If I were tested today, that test would last until I went back outside. I'm not living in fear for two more years. This isolation is only prolonging the inevitable, and I'm not waiting for the government to save me. If I get sick, I get sick. I'm social distancing, staying clean, using common sense, but I'm not living in fear. If you're scared, stay home. I'm living my life. This ain't the last virus we're going to see

    Dave is a pretty awesome guy. The 1st time I actually met him was at a TSO concert at the BJC. Then we started running into each other at different stores in the area, & I would always check in when I went to Hazen Flea Market. He has stopped at my house to check up on me after having surgery twice. I wasn’t home, lol, but he talked to my hubby for awhile both times. Dave is a very good guy!!

    I know it is asking a lot to talk about an outbreak of adult behavior occurring, but... 1) If you're that concerned about catching COVID-19 because you're around people, then don't go anywhere around people. 2) If you want me to wear a mask in public, please have a reasonable argument for my doing so. Don't tell me that I MUST do so, don't try to shame into doing so and please don't quote the questionable information you've found on the Internet as the basis of your argument.

    I call it a VACATION! Congress averages over 250 days of vacation a year. What's a few days more???? I wish I had vacation time like that... and they have it so rough only making $175,000 plus a year which includes all of their BIG PERKS that no average worker gets. ... Just read the news tonight, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of congress will be back to work next week despite a warning from the Capital Doctors. I'm thinking that the pressure from Americans was just too much for Nancy or maybe it was just too much ice-cream that caused her a brain freeze ..

    Been saving this...

    A couple years ago I took one of those DNA heritage things, discovered all sorts of info on the family tree. Well about 8 years ago one of my half-uncles who lived in TX stopped in town after delivering a camper to NJ. We sat and bullshitted for awhile. During that discussion he mentioned a family secret, that my mom's mom had another child that she had to put up for adoption. (that other child wouldn't have been related to the half-uncle that told me the story) Well a few of week ago a match showed up in my connections, and we cross-contacted each other. He had been adopted shortly after birth in Pittsburgh, had a few documents with some specific info that would make a good connection(date & place of birth, birth name, adoption agency, a page with info about birth parents and maternal grandparents).. I then contacted one of my cousins from my grandmother's sister's lineage, and she confirmed some of the things. Well, I called my mom up a day before Mother's Day and her B-Day and mentioned the story that her half-bro told me, and asked her some specifics of what she could remember. ...did not mention what I already knew. First she was shocked that I knew of that story, but then opened up. Well she told me enough, poop matched exactly what the documents had. I was sitting and chuckling near the end of it, she was getting pissy at my laughing. I actually had known for a fact for a week or so prior, but was saving it for that call. I told her, "Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday - I just found your lost brother". (her B-Day and Mom's day fell on same day this year).

    Pretty easy to figure out. He's been partisan in every decision he's made with this deal. Big box/big corporate stores and businesses received free realm to operate business as usual while the mom and pop businesses get threatened with criminal prosecution and license revoked if they opened. Then Wolf who was to revamp, modernize, and strengthen the UC system two years ago brushed it off and put it on the back burner and look at what we have today. Countless out of work Pennsylvanians that many are going on two months without getting their UC filed let alone collecting a dime. Countless people about to lose their businesses, homes, life savings, etc.... And you have the nerve to ask why there's so much animosity towards Wolf....

    Exactly. Nobody can scare me into doing crap that is not necessary just because they are terrified of living. Clfd county has 14 cases out of how many people that live in the county???? Can't say it's low because of wearing masks because people weren't forced to wear them till 2 weeks ago. Its because it is blown out of proportion. Say I am a horrible, selfish whatever person I just chuckle at that.. Nobody preaching at me will change my mind till I see hundreds of sudden cases here. Look how many "Covid deaths" they found were false. What else are they lying about 🤔

    Masks?

    I have a lot of friends who are front line health care workers. Most agree the mandatory mask wearing in stores is ludicrous unless you are showing signs of being sick. Seeing patients yes, going to walmart no. U wanna live in fear and be controlled then good for u. Not everyone is going to live that way. It's amazing ans amusing how people fall for all the fear mongering. If all 50 states were acting this way then maybe I would be more persuaded but no they are not. Your opinion on the subject is no more right or wrong than anyone else's on here.

    Masks?

    There isn't a fine. The federal government did not issue an order of any sort, they just recommend it. The PA Government has "ordered" that anyone entering businesses should wear masks, but they cannot enforce it. Businesses "can" refuse entry to those not wearing masks, but it is highly unlikely they will. Since the government has said that those with medical conditions do not need to wear masks and do not have to provide information on the medical condition, can you imagine the lawsuits that would come about if something was said to someone? The fact is, the government (federal, state, local) does not have the resources to police such a policy. They would have to police not only the wearing of masks, but them being worn "properly" Someone is going to have limited rights no matter what in this mess. Either the greater mass of citizens is having their freedoms trampled with the shutdowns, mask orders, etc., or you will have the high risk individuals having their freedoms trampled if we tell THEM to stay home. I wear the damn things, but I also think people are nuts to believe in a false sense of security from them being worn. If other steps aren't taken to mitigate the risk masks being worn by another person and by yourself will do little to protect a person if they are not worn 100% correctly which will never happen. Basically, it comes down to protect yourself, act as if every single person you come into contact with is infected. For me, I will follow the "guidelines" within reason. If I get to the point I can't stand it then the local economy will be the one to suffer because I will switch to online shopping. I'm ok with not leaving the house. I'm ok if I don't have to see another human being.

    Why is this vaccine going to be so much quicker than all the rest? There are many other viruses that still don't have vaccines years--decades in some cases--down the road. What about the testing protocols? Who is going to be willing to have this injected into their body without proper research and testing? We all need to build our immunity. Our bodies CAN fight his stuff off on our own if we care for the body properly with proper nutrition. We will never fight off the next thing down the road if we hide from every germ. Good Lord, most of us likely ate dirt as kids. Or accidentally drank nasty lake water that likely had oodles of disgusting things floating in it. We didn't die--yet. We are tougher because of it. Please don't pin your hopes on a vaccine. Eat right. Exercise. Get some sun. Take care of your mind. Stop letting them instill fear in you. Don't let them jab a needle in you just because they say so. Doctors and scientists aren't God. Stop letting them pretend they are.
