WTF is phase 2?

I never stopped doing what I do.
(As pathetic as that is)
Work, shopping, visiting the kids, grandkids, etc.
Social distancing on demand. Wearing a mask as required.
They’ve moved the goal posts on this “plandemic” skatey eight times.
So tired of the scare tactics. That’s no way to live.

So remind me what Phase 2 is again.
He doesn't mean Phase 2 opening, he means the next cycle of the virus which, if it occurs, will be late fall/early winter. It may not occur, this is our first engineered accidentally released virus. If it doesn't occur, it will be the first time a large scale event didn't have at least one, sometimes two other cycles. President Trump has said we will.not.shut.down.again. But prices are likely to go up anyway and supply could be sketchy from time to time as we get back on our feet as a country.

I'm not sure how everyone feels about where we are at the moment, but I'm back to preparing for Phase II. :censored:
That’s more or less where I’m at. Just grateful for the extra time to get more stuff in order before the second shoe drops. Really blessed that I don’t really have to participate in society much if I don’t want to. Gives me the option to ride this all out from afar so to speak while minimizing risk to myself.

Focusing hard on long term food, sustainable resources on the land, and comfort items for an extended bug in.

I figure between the election, geopolitical issues, a second wave, on going economic repercussions, and our still broken supply issues we’re in for a rough winter.

2020 has been a ride so far and we’re not even half way into it. Seems prudent to plan for the worse and if it doesn’t come I won’t need to buy any groceries all of 2021.

This is basically where we are at. Still working (cuz I be essential) and the wife paid for the rest of school year, financially we are fine. Waiting on August (start of school year) to see what, if anything, will be done for the reopening of schools here. Kids and their families are doing good - those that work are essential employees and home schooling hasn't changed much.

Outside of restrictions while shopping there hasn't really been any big change to our daily lives here. We have the stimulus money just sitting in the account waiting.

I knew what he meant.
We’re still eating down what went into the freezer / fridge in late March / early April.
Rotating. Nothing touched out of LTS.
Never really changed shopping with the exception of an extra gallon of milk an extra dozen eggs. That kind of thing.
Simply because the supply chain is not so clockwork anymore.
Would have bought a freezer but none to be had.
Still waiting on that stimulus check too.

What Mel said. (y)

A second spread of Covid19. Which is currently spreading quietly and rapidly as people drop the precautions and seek out social interactions. I mean the weather is beautiful.

Unless I'm completely wrong. Which I sincerely hope I am.

I'm still wondering how military and public sector employees retirees that get their funds deposited every month haven't gotten a stimulus. Old man draws a va check, and still didn'tt have his either. ATF takes payments directly from my account, yeet I've got no check. Funny how that doesn't work like it should but bonequisha done got herself 3 checks and some mo food stamps. Bitch never paid a tax nor owned property, so how do they have her info so quick? I'm pretty disenfranchised.

Yeah, but I think you might live in my neighborhood- on the fringe of society. I poke at it every now and then when I'm bored, and instantly realize why i have withdrawn from that shitshow.
