    Are you really arguing that you think there will be a mental health epidemic coming with a lockdown, and that depression will become so severe that despair will become a greater threat than this novel coronavirus?

    Are you you using the (supposedly) discredited "someone, somewhere-argues-that- so-therefore-all- say-that" line?

    People from NYC are flooding my county - some have summer homes here others are renting houses. The locals are not happy!

    Sure it is. When you cry wolf and no wolf is present. People stop listening. As I have been saying, for years, nobody will believe the media when a real crisis shows up.

    The evidence of manufactured crisis, is hard to ignore.

The other narrative is "the left is spinning this because they are anti-Trump." Scroll back through this thread and you will see both as themes winding through the entire thread. I have not seen anyone introduce the "cry wolf" narrative, though I have to admit I have not read every single post - so it may be there.

    The left appears to be mostly operating in fear of the outbreak. I'm not seeing a "cry wolf" phenomenon there either. I'm sure that some people are rejecting the phenomenon on the basis of "crying wolf," but I have not seen that as a major theme in any venue. If you have, where have you seen this objection being made?
    You’re still ignoring the cause. I’ve been saying, for years now, that the decision to make everything a crisis, for political gain, is dangerous. Liberals only have themselves to blame if few heed their warnings after years of creating crisis only for their to be none.

    It actually seems reasonable. I can stand it just fine because of my introvert nature. I’m sure this will drive those with an extrovert nature, crazy.

    And again:

    Boy cried wolf, several times, no wolf present. Wolf finally shows up, nobody believes him, wolf kills entire flock. Thanks media!
