  1. Yeah... I read all the rules and realize that as an old poop I am still supposed to be restricted to home under the GCQ. In our area seniors are allowed out to go to the bank even under ecq
  2. I went to all home during gcq and was asked my age and denied entry. My wife went in to make the Purchase. They allowed her to make 2 trips outside to check with me about the items. There were chairs set outside for seniors who were being assisted by store personal.
  3. “Northern Mindanao (plus other areas) no longer undercommunity quarantine starting May 16.” I saw that also, however we live in a northern Mindanao city with well over 300k people and we are staying under quarantine. According to some local doctors we have 0 active cases. There are news reports of 3 cases which has been disputed by some. Our airport is not currently allowing sweeper flights like most others. There must be something happening that the general public is unaware of. I once asked for patience and God sent me to the Philippines.
  4. “If common sense were lard most folks couldn’t grease a skillet.”
  5. Do as you wish Jack, but if you just can’t resist the urge to comment on my ORIGINAL post, please do. You’re fun.
  6. Mike, I completely get where you’re coming from. You have made some excellent points and most I agree with.I’m just not real sure about a lot of the information out there. I guess that’s where the problem lies. I’m seeing more and more information indicating that numbers have and continue to be inaccurate. That is understandable given the suddenness of outbreak. With this in mind I’m not sure if I’m at greater risk or not. It’s a real fine line and I’m certainly no authority. Just my opinion and happy Jack can tell us what that’s worth
  7. Jack you’re great at finding memes that OTHERS have written and published, but real weak on anything original. Oh I forgot, you are good at criticizing. If you care not to read my ORIGINAL post skip them as I do with yours.
  8. So Jack should I not express my opinion? If you have something to say please say it. Don’t hide behind some phony meme.
  9. Mike, when I reflected I decided your question required a more detailed response. There are thousands of vehicle accidents where all involved are following the rules as well as air accidents along with many of the other everyday activities. We live in a world where we are constantly subjected to dangerous situations. We cannot protect everyone from everything nor should we. Darwin wrote about this. As I said I certainly respect others right to protect themselves but I want to make my own decisions about my protection and the protection of my family. I think folks will ultimately suffer more from continued quarantine than from the virus. We should not shut down the world because some are fearful. Folks can easily protect themselves by staying home while allowing others to go about their lives. As I’m sure you know we normally quarantine sick people not healthy ones. I am in the high risk category (77) and have 2 young children so I certainly won’t do anything foolish but I will not ask others to stop their lives for me. I also want to decide when I and my children go out and mingle. I have managed to survive 77 years making my own decisions and at this point I am not prepared to allow others to make those decisions for me. Now to your question, I NEVER recommend anyone break the rules. My area is ecq and I comply.
  10. When you drive and fly do follow the rules? How do you feel about those who do not? Your question assumes facts not mentioned in my comment. I did not suggest breaking any rules.
  11. I can certainly understand the “don’t pose a risk to me” sentiment. However I find it unrealistic. Every time I drive my car I pose a potential risk as does every other driver. Every time I fly I pose a potential risk to those on the ground as does everyone else who flies. We don’t ban driving and we don’t ban flying or any of the other things we do on a daily basis that create a potential risk. Those who think the risk is to great can simply isolate themselves at home and avoid the risk they perceive. I personally want to be the one who makes the decision about my life. I don’t want to be shackled by others who want to stay home and Expect me to do as they do. I can read and do enough math to make my own decisions. Again I sincerely respect the opinions of those who prefer to isolate, but don’t expect me to give up my freedom for your fears.
  12. A beautiful young lady Jack and your rightful pride shows in many of your post.
  13. Congratulations to you both. Wishing you the best.
  14. It would sure feel better.😁
