So go to commercial businesses. Then find office building.

You will also find amusement parks and sporting events.

So is everything open under this new mandate from the County Judge?

I find it strange that Houston Galveston and New York refuse to shut down public transit systems. People crammed into tin cans coughing and sneezing all the while moving them across town. How is this safer than eating at your favorite restaurant? Leftist hate automobiles but love taxpayer funded trains and busses.

Scroll down further. Sorry govt made document, not designed to be easily read.

In other news a friend got an official placard for his car that says FEMA 2nd Response Unit.

Looks real official. He’s in IT.

Speaking of eating out. How is eating food prepared by others not risky. That is riskier than anything I can think of. All one has to do is take one look at any kitchen in any restaurant and you will see a dozen or more people running all over the place putting hands on the food. They sweat all over everything due to the heat. Then they touch everything as they put it in containers that they put their hands all over.

Executions must not be essential business either.

https://www.kltv.com/2020/03/20/texas-c ... ue-covid-/
AUSTIN, Texas (KLTV) - The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has stopped the scheduled execution of an East Texas man because of COVID-19.
According to court documents, the execution of Tracy Beatty was stayed in light of the current health crisis and the enormous resources needed to address the emergency. Beatty, of Whitehouse, was sentenced to death in 2004 for murdering his 62-year-old mother and burying her body in their backyard.
The court’s stay will last for 60 days and will automatically be lifted after that period of time. This is the second scheduled execution stopped in Texas due to COVID-19.

If I were in the DFW area, I love to join you in civil disobedience by being in attendance while you are at the pulpit.

Thank you. My people would too, but I don’t have it in me to put them in that situation. I have older people who have no business getting out that would come because the church was open. I have contact Christian Law Association and they have agreed to help however I need them to. Now I need the wisdom exactly what to do.

I understand it 100%. Churches involve large amounts of people all sitting close to each other, in one space, at the same time. The liquor store involves a few people at a time maintaining space between each other. They are there a couple minutes, then they leave. It makes complete sense if you are attempting to keep folks separate as much as possible.

I think the term that is bothersome is calling a liquor store essential. But I do understand that a church gathering carries more risk than a liquor store.
