    Common sense will prevail for most.  Darwin will look after the rest.

  4. I'm glad he issued the order. It is frustrating that I cannot find it on the CDPHE website or the Governor's executive order page https://www.colorado.gov/governor/2020-executive-orders

    Hopefully that will be corrected soon.

    As long as I can buy food, booze, and dope—I am good.

    I have postponed my guns and ammo purchases. I do find it interesting that both “firearms stores” and “gun stores” are mentioned. Is firearms too bigly a word for a certain crowd?

      Attaboy, dave. 

      I'm wth you.

      Of course, with my guns and ammo, I can help myself to dave's food, booze and dope!

        . . . at least not until armed robbery is permitted to be “necessary business.”

        Rules is rules.


        You will, however, probably soon be in the clear just shooting him — and may even be encouraged to do so, under the Republican plan and federal preemption. (As I understand it, the details on the age requirements, etc., are currently being discussed and negotiated, and have not yet been finalized.) But, I think you may still have to leave his food, booze, and drugs, untouched, even then . . .

        . . . at least until we get a clarifying SCOTUS ruling?

        It’s complicated, and things are going to be a little in flux for awhile, given the current state of things.

    Here's a moral and ethical problem I would not wish on anyone.  And it is primarily due to the critical shortage of PPE that Trump takes no responsibility for.

    Hospitals consider universal do-not-resuscitate orders for coronavirus patients

    The conversations are driven by the realization that the risk to staff amid dwindling stores of protective equipment — such as masks, gowns and gloves — may be too great to justify the conventional response when a patient “codes,” and their heart or breathing stops.

    Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago has been discussing a do-not-resuscitate policy for infected patients, regardless of the wishes of the patient or their family members — a wrenching decision to prioritize the lives of the many over the one.

    The new protocols are part of a larger rationing of lifesaving procedures and equipment — including ventilators — that is quickly becoming a reality here as in other parts of the world battling the virus. The concerns are not just about health-care workers getting sick but also about them potentially carrying the virus to other patients in the hospital.
