Hey folks, It’s the Regular Guy that is middle of the road on most issues.


I’m not sure that it was the best time for Florida to reopen because we now have record numbers of coronavirus cases almost every day. I went to the beach and I was amazed at how many people were in close quarters with each other and that life seemed to be completely back to normal. WAKE UP TO THE FACT THAT NOTHING IS GOING BACK TO NORMAL FOR A LONG TIME. I maintained my distance and I didn’t stay long but I am concerned that’s for sure. I’m the age that is most at risk of serious illness and or death from this disease. I know that it sucks for us to be cooped up at home but if it’s what we have to do to be safe then so be it. Let’s at least individually continue to wear our masks and stay out of indoor confined spaces that are crowded and just do the things necessary for us to stay healthy. I’m not sure what is in store for us here in Florida, but I am darn worried about it. We are a state with a big senior citizen population and because of this we also have a high rate of coronavirus deaths. I’d like to hear from you about solutions that are reasonable and helpful and might work with things open again.

I’m not a fan of just giving folks money but in this case, it seems like a necessity to keep the people and our economy in some way better. This is a different kind of hardship that we didn’t cause and not a problem brought on by bad choices or apathy that’s why in this case I believe it is necessary that we help each other and that our government goes out of their way to get folks through this disaster. I understand that the money has to come from somewhere and maybe if the government would quit spending money on things that are unnecessary like 1000 dollar toilets or whatever it might be then the money would be available for this situation, maybe. Again I’d like to hear from you about what you think about more stimulus money and unemployment benefits as needed.

I want to say that I’m hoping that we can get together as Americans and help each other as people not racially divided but as one race the human race. Let’s try and be nice to each other for once.
