While you're comments are all good intentioned you have to ask yourself where does it end. If the government mandates something and as long as they can sell it as helping or not causing trouble what else are you willing to do? There's a much bigger issue at play here...
6 months ago if I would have said the government would shut your business down because of an aggressive version of the flu would you have been okay with that? Or would have said hell no I wouldn't never let that happen... people wouldn't tolerate it...people would rise and fight...we all talk big but then you look back and you realize you've been a patsy...
Mandate mask wearing?
Maybe shut yoir business down again?
What about a mandatory vaccine you okay with that as long as its making other people more comfortable?
I understand you, Truly I do.
and your point of view is a good one.
Personally, Yes it did do a huge dent.
The government got hit tremendously. Over here they shut down all federal building, city hall, permits, street sweeping, meter where and are still shut down so free parking, no meter maids, no citations for any type of parking. building permits are extremely slow, and I was offered a delay in paying business licenses( in which I was able to pay for the cities i work in).
So although the government may shut me down, they also will have to shut themselves down too. I see this as we are all in it.'
Im just trying to makethe best of it and make ends meet.
I do understand what youre saying about the worry of the feds controlling our way of living but I havent seen anything extreme yet. yet I could be wrong
