You are funny. Ain’t gonna happen. But the Democrats sure do love them mail in ballots. As they were pleading guilty to mailing in many Illegal ballots.

as any conservative will tell you, the "people" do not have the authority. any conservative will tell you this is a republic, not a "democracy." we do, however, have the right to vote out dangerous leaders, and we seem likely to do so in November.

No..... the governors do NOT have the authority. The people have the authority.  This is not China or Hong Kong.   It's "We the People"  If your sick, stay home. If you go into an enclosed space, wear a mask. Waiting on line, stay six feet apart. If you can go to Home Depot, buy pot, or wait in line at some momo stand,  you can go to church.  NBS just  reported that a church resisting Corona virus restrictions was burnt down to the ground, while some idiot spray painted "Bet you stay home now you hypocrites"  In Mississippi, this church was  considered essential. They just had to abide by certain rules.   The fire is being considered as arson. Is this where we're  headed???!!!    Still,  a gym in Jersey tried to open.....using guidelines.   A message on the door from Camden County's Prosecutors Office stated  "YOU FACE UP TO SIX MONTHS IN JAIL IF YOU USE THIS GYM". Sounds like a police state.  We have constitutional  rights. The "so called" governors do not have the authority to take away those rights. We do however, have the right to vote  them out of office.

Hopefully the governors  will do the right thing, and the President will not have to fight for our first amendment rights

Guidelines have been released today for the safe opening of religious organizations. They should be followed like any other business. They don’t allow many people to a liquor store or supermarket, they will do the same with the church. It is the first amendment. And I wouldn’t take one church in Arkansas to be the end-all for everything. Churches and mosques and synagogues must be reopened. And they are being opened today. If Long Island can open the bars, restaurants, and beaches, surely they can open a church. Under the safety guidelines.

Churches, Mosques  and Synagogues , should not have been deemed non-essential, as we are finding out now. Totally unfair of the governors to open up liquor stores for alcoholics  and not churches. I’m happy that wrong got righted.

Indoor gatherings are exactly where the virus spreads. So yes, they should be deemed non-essential. People can worship online. That's what members of my family who are religious are doing. Liquor stores don't cause this type of spread because stores limit the number of shoppers and people are in and out.

Here's a report by the CDC from today https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6920e2.htm

Summary
What is already known about this topic?

Large gatherings pose a risk for SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

What is added by this report?

Among 92 attendees at a rural Arkansas church during March 6–11, 35 (38%) developed laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, and three persons died. Highest attack rates were in persons aged 19–64 years (59%) and ≥65 years (50%). An additional 26 cases linked to the church occurred in the community, including one death.

Are you certain the bike lanes are gone?  That section of 34th Avenue is closed to cars.  I have not seen any information that says the bike lanes along that stretch should not be used by cyclists.

Doughnut Plant's delivery zone has expanded. Wonder if it goes far out as Elmhurst/Jackson Heights now.
