Thread: New York State Bans High Capacity Thanksgiving Dinners

    New York State Bans High Capacity Thanksgiving Dinners

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/17/us/sh...rnd/index.html

    NY state limiting private residences to no more than 10 people. That’s a common sense reasonable number of relatives to have over for thanksgiving. No one needs more than 10 people for one holiday dinner.

    Sheriffs around the state refuse to enforce this executive action from Emperor Cuomo.

    Given its NY, I thought their magic number has been dropped to 7?

    Let’s hope people ignore this crap. Freedom and the health of society are on the line these days.

    First off, great thread title.

    So we limit gatherings to 10 people. Instead of 1 gathering, a family has 3. Uncle Joe goes to one for brunch, one for dinner, and one for late night drinks. Say Uncle Joe is infected?

    Of course this doesn’t compare to the number he infected when they forced nursing homes to let him in...

    We have a restrictions on gathering limited to people who you live with in your home. Not 10, not 5, just who is with you anyway. So far till the 23d but likely to be extended through holidays.

    This is in a state that has a full GOP control at every govt level, that resisted mandates for as long as they could, and that Trump just won by 21%. And that has very large extended families.

    Funny thing is that, seeing how we're setting all kinds of records, daily cases, daily hospitalized, ICU use, and deaths, nobody seems to be complaining much. Common sense, eh?
    “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    The table can fit 10 chairs, but only 7 people can sit at a time.

    If it was common sense, you wouldn't need restrictions.

    Apparently you don't subscribe to the line of thought that I first saw on LF - common sense - so rare it should be a supper power.

    Until recently I wasn't much worried. Both of my sons, however, were bitching heavily about the folks they worked with refusing to wear masks. They work at a paper mill. At latest count they tell me that two of their co-workers have died, at least one is in ICU, and numerous workers are off for the mandated two-weeks because they've tested positive. At this point everyone on the machines are working 12 to 16 hour shifts, and they are just about to the point of putting one machine off-line because of man power. One son is fearful that at that point the plant will be shutdown.

    So, yeah, 'muh, rights' trumps everything may not be the best way to roll.

    The GOP has been less than impressive during this time as well.


    Do you all believe that people should be arrested for violating these orders?

    Not who you asked, but if deaths can be traced to violations of the orders hell yes. It’s criminal negligence.

    I have noticed that many Lightfighter folks apparently have prodigious supper powers.
