Does anyone enforce a voluntary curfew?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

You want to see panic just let them try that.

I mean just take a look at the current restrictions, if the restrictions given today, were given a month ago, everyone would panic. Heck, I remember arguing (not so long ago) about Florida not reporting their COVID testing, if it's censorship or is the government rightfully preventing panic. I think you'll agree now how one sided that question seems now. As we get used to the new restrictions it makes it easier to place more and more restrictions.

there are probably thousands of roads and streets connecting many states to each other.

Perhaps it's impossible, but I know China did it successfully. More likely, if there are new local quarantine restrictions, we will see states group up like we did today - NY/NJ/CT.

It is not as difficult as that but in many places the dividing line would not be on state lines. There are a limited number of bridges crossing the Hudson. Same with the Delaware River. Even Interstates and train tracks have limited numbers of crossings.

The thing I am worried about now is the nutcases looking for an excuse to riot or take down the government.

We're not taking any chances with getting stuck for Pesach. Driving to Chicago tomorrow before they close NJ and OH.

Then we need old school solutions. Like when a tornado hit in my area and the national guard was given orders "shoot to kill".

If the restrictions get very strict, you will likely see that. Unfortunately.

Not afaik
I believe it's a separate guy who runs Iwantromanian.com and is not affiliated with the real Romanian
Prices are higher and shipping isn't cheap
You might need a license to ship/sell interstate
I've called and asked in person many a time and they wouldn't ship

The thing is we have to look at this as people agreeing in this crisis But on different ends of the political aisle. For example what happens in November if it doesn't go away?

Did they hold off the elections?

I have people telling me that the entire virus was invented by China to destroy the US economy.

You don't think that there are plenty of people are claiming that it's all by Trump?
