I've wondered this before, but the people saying "I just want to work" don't seem to care if anyone else is going to cooperate with their efforts to earn money. So, this is a serious question for the entrepreneurs: If you open, and business sucks, is it worth it? /1
My parent sran a restaurant for a while - the ancient curse of all Greeks that we have to do that at some point - and it's expensive to keep an empty restaurant open. If they open at half capacity, or no one comes, what next? Order people at gunpoint to go out to dinner? /2
My workplace has told me to stay home and banned all travel. By what right do I say: "But the rest of you, get to work." I mean, @greggutfeld is getting paid, and his workplace has banned him and everyone else from coming back until June 15 - but he gets paid, just like me. /3
The minute we reopen, I'm going to get a haircut and a manicure - as long as the salons are observing rules that I trust the CDC will tell us to keep in place so that I don't die with nice hair and nails. But is it worth opening if we won't go? Isn't this how it has to work? /4
All this "end the lockdown, you heartless elitists" sounds like just bullshit Foxified virtue-signaling. I can't figure out who wants to pay the overhead and food storage and wait staff for a place that might still be empty. It won't be me or Greg Gutfeld. That much I know. /5x
