    City Mayor: *I didn’t do anything.*
    Best response would be: *Exactly.*

    She’s either plain incompetent or just don’t care about this serious global crisis that’s killing thousands of people worldwide and affecting literally everybody’s daily lives. Respect to the guy who stood up though he clearly cares.

      @Sandra Lewis

      It is the very real threat of rioting hordes that SHOULD motivate the haves to not be so tone-deaf. I support the natural right of a man with a hungry family to take whatever he can from the rich man’s table.

      Here in Ga, all of Atlanta got up and went all over the place this weekend. The starving masses will be at your door the moment they realize there’s food behind it. The answer is strong communities. Hope you’re right with your neighbors.

    • Sandra Lewis says:

      @The Great Owl Absolutely! We live in an area where gardening, hunting, farming, and animal husbandry is a way of life. A group of us already keep a close eye on the welfare of our older neighbors, shopping, cleaning, and cooking for them. I volunteer for a food bank in a small town. Nobody here talks about what they have or where it may be hidden. On our properties we have hidden cellars and our cellars have cellars. When the army stops to check on our food supplies–if they can find us–there will be nothing to see except a working pantry. I am not one of the “haves”. I’m just a very busy little red hen. I’ll help where I can but nobody is entitled to the fruits of my labors. Where I live the signs are posted regarding the disposition of trespassers and revenuers. All kidding aside, the haves will probably be prepared to repel invaders for awhile. I’d hate to see it come to that and believe rationing would occur first.

      @Sandra Lewis

      Most people would call me a have, but I come from a very long line of little red hens, and I remember what my grandmother taught me. Seems like a lot of folks either didn’t listen to or didn’t have decent grandmothers. Or maybe I was just really lucky.

      Be well. Be a good neighbor. Weather the storm. ✌️

      Your right about that
