Starting to see some municipality cutbacks.  I agree, that has to reach a critical mass before some governors loosen up restrictions.

So if FB says you can't tell people that there will be a protest going on, your okay with that because you don't want the protest to occur and you don't want people to make their own choice on the matter.   
So you should be watching Trump then so he can tell you what you should be doing right?

For the most part, layoffs are now passe. Government employees now get furloughed, which means they simply have their hours cut. Mayor Garcetti just announced as much for L.A. during his state of the city address yesterday. Cops and firefighters won't even get furloughed, they're simply too necessary, particularly during a crisis like this.

But don't worry, Bob. Those public employees will take a punch in the gut over the long term because in most states, cities rely heavily on sales taxes and with the exception of the occasional new car marked way down because auto dealers are really taking it in the shorts, L.A. isn't earning diddly squat these days because such a large percentage of people's expenditures is now going for food and that isn't taxable.

I always love it when guys protest the IRS who have probably paid a minute fraction as much income tax in their life as my wife and I have.

The Orange Menace would rather pat himself on the back then answer simple questions.

As for Facebook protest; if idiots want to congregate, infect each other, infect their loved ones, and then people simply in proximity, they should find their own platform to talk on. Facebook complied with a common sense request.

No Biden supporter with an ounce of brains would wear something that could be mistaken for a MAGA cap to a public gathering.

Those people exist??

Just curious. Do government workers still  receive their normal pay check if they aren’t working? If so, why?

I'm only putting this here because it may not deserve its own thread, and it pertains to US China relations during Covid.

Keep an eye out for this, it should break into the evening news in the next day or two.  Might be nothing or could wind up being a big deal pretty soon.

Not sure if the America deployed with F35 b on it or not.

I'm assuming your meaning the aircraft carrier with F35 bombers?
