The McMurfy Plan has been picking up traction.
Part 1- We isolate and quarantine all Basketball and Football Players and Staffs.
Part 2- We Federalize, temporarily, Amazon, Target, Walmart, Kroger.
Part 3- We shut down everything, and I mean everything from Nov1-Jan 3
Medical Workers are escorted to and from Work by the Military who also deliver food for the Federalized Companies mentioned above.
We stay home, work from home, and watch sports for two months.
We Vote by Mail.
We Vote online.
We emerge with No Virus. Open Schools, and a return to normal.
A perfect plan with no holes, No
Better than what we will do?
The amount of damage this would do to the economy is almost beyond measure. The damage to retail alone to be closed over that time off year would be crushing. Black Friday is so-called because that is the first day of the year many retail stores are 'in the black' for the year. Also, to federalize Amazon, Target, Walmart, Kroger, etc., even temporarily, is completely illegal and that part of the plan would be ended with a quick trip to the courthouse.
And while some could work from home, and most of those already are, shutting down "everything, and I mean everything" implies things like food processing plants and other vital areas. So that is not happening
The solution should never be more damaging than the problem. Plus, cases nationwide are going down the last few days. Wear masks, socially distance and let's stop doing stupid things that anyone with half a brain should know can spread the disease. COVID is bad, but it is not bad enough to destroy the whole economy over.
