Old School - where in OH?

Marc, I'm currently in Sidney, but in about two hours I'll be settled in Dayton. My oldest daughter lives there. My youngest daughter came in from her home in Branson, and my wife rode with me so that we could all have some time together. I have one daughter in Texas who couldn't make it, but I get to see her and her son fairly often. Three of my four grandchildren are here in Dayton this week, so that makes it a pretty special visit.

The discussion about armed resistance is interesting. The different perspectives show posters underlying beliefs, imo. High tech is troubling, but one needs only look to the Afghani anti-Soviet Mujahadeen or 1960's and 70's VC for examples of how mindset and a willingness to die for a cause can vex a high tech foe.

Granted, our men and women in uniform have gotten better at dealing with low tech. The disadvantage that a "resistance force" would encounter is a more than ample supply of surveillance, both tech and human.

Any use of tech to coordinate would sound a death knell. So, a return to 1940 france / 1950 cold war humint style messaging, and its innately ponderously slow nature, would be required. Vex the tech forces? Yes. Triumph? Possibly, but with great loss on both parts. Your actual mileage may differ

This hysteria has kind of become this one-upmanship game where all of the governments are trying to prove who is the most dedicated to the safety of their citizens.

Like, "Oh, you're just going to close your schools? We'll close all our businesses!"

"Oh, you're only going to close your businesses? We're going to set a nightly curfew for all citizens!"

"Oh, you're only going to set a curfew? We'll make it illegal to leave your house at all!"

It's odd, and indeed quite eerie.

It really feels like this was all premeditated. It doesn't feel like governments intelligently managing a crisis on the fly, which of course no one believes this virus even constitutes anything near a crisis. It feels like they've had this plan all along and they're doing everything in quick, bite-size stages as quickly as we'll tolerate it in order to get to a final police state with everyone on complete lockdown.

To validate your paranoia, the notice from my wife's school and the decision at Prime trucking were within twelve hours of each other. Both have the exact same two week postponement. It's almost as if someone decided to shut down the world for two weeks and then disseminated the decision to schools and businesses.

Just got another notice regarding Missouri government offices closing for guess how long?
