Rumors....I stress RUMORS are starting to fly around that the US may impose this weekend.
I didn't even know what it was, had to look up.

Basically .. Law enforcement by military.

and just where are these "rumors" coming from?
I've been to Lowe's and Walmart today .... everything looked normal - people shopping. I bought everything I needed.
No black helicopters
Walmart even had toilet paper ! :D

I can say that Target team members have been given paperwork today that verifies that we are "essential workers." There is a phone number on the paperwork for law enforcement to call. Yes, I would say that martial law is a distinct possibility.

Yeah Thurgood would not like be associated with this decision. Even though it has been 17 years since he died.
Or even George.

Check this out, don't be laughing imho
From what I've heard the military is being called in to assist, not to enforce. As the governor of New York was saying the military is ALWAYS called in for national emergencies. Read the article.

Activating the National Guard and Martial Law are 2 different things. DS was activated for the last Hurricane in Texas......they help with logistics, rescue, any number of things. They are extra bodies in an emergency. These kinds of rumors are not helpful and just add to the panic.

You beat me to it!



...but of course, it is Thorogood.....

On a totally unrelated note now - although this was nearly 30 years ago, I can still hear and feel the music of George Thorogood and the Destroyers to this day. There was no warm up with George. Literally, the entire band comes out and from the 1st note we are being blasted with magnificent guitar.. It was a spectacular performance - no show needed because the music did the talking. One of the simplest stage setups I have ever seen. Plain. Nothing got in the way. Loud. Outstanding.

How did you look it up if you can't spell it?

But to get back into the spirit of this thread, we do need a modern day Marshall Plan.....

Our state guard was activated weeks ago. They are so far managing logistics, getting this there, that over here.... They might also be helping to get food to the infirm and homebound.

Military is not just for fighting. They lead our sandbagging efforts, too, when our rivers threaten residences.

In Italy, they are performing a very grim task, that I hope they will not have to do here.

Sen Chuck Schumer has requested Marshall Plan for hospitals. Maybe that's the misunderstanding that led to rumor.

While Martial Law can not be ruled out. it will not be invoked unless this gets so bad it leads to civil unrest.

One would think that in the process of looking it up, he would have learned how to spell it.
That's the problem with Google these days, Jim. I deal with it when my elementary students attempt research on a simple topic. Today's technology has conditioned students not to worry with actual learning because if you get in the general area of a correct spelling, they believe Google always points them to what they intended. Write it down??!?? Can't be bothered with that says the look on their faces....

There are other corrective forces at work addressing that possibility.....

I have a friend in another state who posted on Facebook a few days ago, repeating all the fear and panic rhetoric, asking where he could buy rifle ammunition in his area. He's drinking the Kool-Aid and getting ready for the apocalypse. I'm afraid someone is going to get hurt, or worse, through all of this.

It's one thing to stay safe and be prepared to protect yourself, but another thing altogether to contribute to unease in an already stressed population. I really appreciate that one Seattle TV station has an unbiased ongoing campaign of "Facts Not Fear" through all of this. They want people to be informed, not afraid.

He is a she and spelling has NEVER been a strength! I have corrected the title.

I told you I didn't even know what it meant. I googled Marshall read the definition and clicked off. I just did it again smart google apparently knew what I was asking because they changed the results to Martial and I didn't notice. You guys and gals are tough today.

Massachusetts has activated the national guard.
