    If you wear YOUR mask and make sure YOUR loved ones wear theirs and YOU all stay at home you’ll be protected.

    No need to infringe on ANYBODY’s first amendment rights.

    I don’t get why that is such a difficult concept for people to grasp. It’s like alcohol kills the liver and people so instead of “prohibition” we let everyone who doesn’t want to risk those side effects abstain and let those who are willing to take the risk drink. Each person has a right to make the choice for themselves.

    Well at least 70,000 people are dead as of today, probably more, that number isn’t really slowing down and won’t as the country begins to open back up rapidly.

    We took a look around and said we have to put Meemaw, Papaw and those pesky young people recovering from cancer in the dirt by the thousands to save Dairy Queen and Hobby Lobby.

    More people died in six weeks than in all of the Vietnam War.

    It’s a service economy. It can’t function even in the short term without people going out serving or being served.

    Grocery stores are essential, they’re open. Farmers are working. The logistics systems in between are working. Essential businesses have never closed and the economy still ate ****. We don’t make anything anymore. We aren’t an innovation based or manufacturing based economy anymore.

    Hospitals are struggling because it turns out they can’t survive on actually doing what they are supposed to do which is treat sick people and save lives. If Randy and Carol aren’t coming in for their yearly colonic that is marked up 800% the healthcare industry can’t survive as is.

    So rather than radically change things and try to move towards an economy that is more stable and better serves needs over the wants of people in this country we have to push the mass poor and working class people into a Bataan death march to serve Karens their coffee so the floor doesn’t completely fall out from the economy.


    I’m just wondering what level of mass death the American people are willing to accept to number one, preserve their political identity and number two ensure that nothing has to fundamentally change about how we go about our daily lives.

    I’d like to see a number. A quarter million dead? Civil War level deaths? Is that acceptable?

    We’ve already written off the population of Neyland Stadium or a small American city as basically viral bullet sponges for this economy.

    The government and media has done a fantastic job normalizing all of this though. You have to give them credit for that.

    If you could rewind to Thanksgiving 2019 and someone tells you that by June next year at least 100k people will be dead you wouldn’t believe them.

    “We will be seeing the equivalent of a 9/11 every day in this country by next summer”

    You wouldn’t believe them.

    Are you dumb? 80k die in an entire year, that’s a high end estimate, from the flu. We have vaccines and viable treatments for the flu. This virus killed 70k in six weeks. A virus that should’ve never been allowed to spread. These are deaths on top of flu deaths.

    This virus is magnitudes more deadly for at risk groups than the yearly flu.

    There’s no panic, no hype. It’s just reality.

    That’s such a dumb take.

    Old Boris Johnson changed his tune after he about had a vent shoved in his lungs and died.

    People are blind until things impact them directly. Those who still don’t move when they have to put someone they care about in the ground are just sociopaths.
