    Yeah, on my shopping trips this morning, even in my small town of 19,000 the traffic was humming like normal.

    As an 18 wheeler driver, in the last few weeks I have noticed a definite uptick in traffic on the highways. I was enjoying the less congested roads during the virus panic, but all that seems to be in the past now.

    I support Trump, but he is an idiot. Why did he invoke the name of George Floyd in a press conference today when he was talking about these good economic numbers? That was dumb Mr. President, really, really DUMB!

    Good news for all. The experts were wrong again. Remember predictions of unemployment at 25-30 percent?

    The predictions were so dire that to have 13.3 percent makes the pr!sident look like a genius... a very stable genius!!!!

    peace to you

    Problem is that social distancing, which must be enforced until a treatment or vaccine, will devastate entertainment based businesses such as tourism, hotels, restaurants, transportation, movie theaters, theme parks, and live entertainment venues.

    This has been confirmed from Europe to China. Expect tourism or entertainment jobs and cities to suffer for a while yet.

    Therefore, the good news depends on where you live. I'm in Orlando. A huge portion of our economy is travel and tourism.

    People have literally bought out everything in the gun stores so a lot of good manufacturing jobs must be in overtime.

    Give it another month and I think social distancing will be pretty much in the past. It is an unnatural stance for human beings and they can’t keep it up for very long. It’s just not the way God created us.

    Then, considering only like 15% of the populace has had the Coronavirus, according to antibody tests, we will have hospitals approaching capacity again. Brazil was relaxed on social distancing, now they are even worse off than we were at peak cases. That means the threat of civil litigation is very high.

    Disney requires masks of guests, has tons of personnel cleaning, has handwashing stations everywhere, and enforces social distancing. I expect that to last for all major corporations until the virus threat goes down, at the very least because of the threat of litigation or harm to a multi billion dollar brand.
