Good Troll sir, Good Troll.   Out of raw curiosity and boredom I decided to go and check out the protest.  it was anything but peaceful.  So many angry people who are obviously upset to be stuck at home because it reminds them that they haven't seen their genitals in some time.,,,,,, it was a bunch of angry fat old farkers.  The protest would have been a ideal target for a Borat skit.
As far as peaceful?  They forced their way into a office building, made it to the elevator lobby but couldn't get anywhere because they shut down the elevators and they were all too fat for the stairs.

Good for the nurses who are on the front line while these fat farks who are at high risk of death to this go about and be asses.  I hope they get it, I hope they die alone.

So, we're easily going to pass 60k deaths this week and these people are whining about their freedoms because they've been asked to sacrifice for a while in order to save hundreds of thousands, if not millions of American lives.  Yet less than 3000 people died on 9/11 and these same people, guaranteed, were fully willing to round up brown people in the US, give up rights to privacy and liberty, turn other countries into "glass parking lots", and start two wars, costing trillions of dollars in order to supposedly feel a sense of security here at home.  IMHO, this proves that they were never interested in security, and certainly not the loss of life, they're just stupid, angry, selfish, racist little biatch-ass snowflakes who will lash out at anything they don't like.

After hearing about Ward's tweet, Leander said if given the opportunity she would walk her through the ICU at her hospital to the bedside of some of her coronavirus patients to see firsthand the impacts of the virus.
"I wish she could be in my shoes for a day, I'd have her put on a pair of scrubs and walk with me," Leander said.

former Arizona state Sen. Dr. Kelli Ward


Presuming she's not a medical doctor? The head of the hospital should invite her to tour their facility. Where there are no fake healthcare workers and there are real patients.

Hell, I'd say give the protesters tours of the hospitals. Let them walk through and see the real patients and the real healthcare workers, then they can walk out, and proclaim it's all a hoax that they saw firsthand. Problem is, they won't be quarantined and not only will they and their loved ones get sick because of their stupidity, they'll spread it to others in the community.

*reads* Yep. Hero confirmed.

Now, I'm not thrilled that people on my side are just as willing to yell "fake person" as these deluded jackasses when they don't like what someone is saying.

These guys demanding we open up again come from the American underclass, and it is real. The are sick (or fat and unattractive, if that makes you feel better about yourself), ignorant, desperate, scared, and so insulated from reality that they don't know how to help themselves. They have been cultivated this way for the sake of political power by half of our two party system. And the other half can't work out whether to help them or pander to them. Pandering is way easier.

Our real American hero nurse makes a point of saying she'd help them, despite all the screaming and threats, because that's her job. As a nurse she's probably used to hurt people fighting her every step of the way. She is not a politician. For a politician, helping these people has a political cost, because they don't understand what real help looks like and they're terrified of it and they might vote for something else.

I don't know if they're ever going to wake up. Some of them do. Access to education and social services that allows them to stop flailing and lashing out would get more of them on our side and stop the others from being as much of a drain, but I don't know if we'll ever get all of them. Maybe their kids, or their kids' kids, because this has been going on a long time and a lot of these damaging systems are entrenched. But if we don't help them, we're gonna stay right where we are, for generation after generation.

For those of you paying attention, where we are is a bunch of sick people screaming at healthcare and government workers that they want to go back to work even if it kills them and the rest of us, because they don't know of any other way to survive. And they are waving American flags, because that's what they think this country stands for.

If the bar also has a food licence (many do) they are selling to go drinks in soda cups.   I have never seen more open container violations in my life, and nothing bad is happening.   Hopefully this will lead to the disposal of a bunch of stupid laws left over from prohibition days.

I think for some it's just about emulating Trump's vibe - if whatever happening is hurting his image, they're fittin to work against it. Which is a shame because I miss intellectual and disciplined conservatives who are running on something besides toxic anger.

Ya..You really don't want to insult people that would have the opportunity to choose between giving
you a not painful medical procedure, and  a painful one...

I guess the difference is, that most people have the ethical and personal integrity to do the right thing,
no matter the situation...And there are those that do not..

It's really sad that people with personal interests are politicizing this situation. If they didn't stubbornly cling to their preconceptions, they would surely step back and allow policy decisions to be made by the businesses and politicians who serve and are accountable to the American people.

I mean... she just *looks* shrill

We can't see what she looks like under the mask, so I've decided to assume that she looks exactly like Linda Cardellini in ER.

(grr stampa stampa)

Mind you, it doesn't matter what she looks like under that mask. She is risking her life every single day to protect others. She is out there courageously making a stand for life and against aggressive, selfish ignorance. She is beautiful.



Clearly she is Amanda Crew and is was doing deep research as a nurse for an upcoming project:

"I wish she could be in my shoes for a day, I'd have her put on a pair of scrubs and walk with me," Leander said.

former Arizona state Sen. Dr. Kelli Ward

Presuming she's not a medical doctor? The head of the hospital should invite her to tour their facility. Where there are no fake healthcare workers and there are real patients.

Hell, I'd say give the protesters tours of the hospitals. Let them walk through and see the real patients and the real healthcare workers, then they can walk out, and proclaim it's all a hoax that they saw firsthand. Problem is, they won't be quarantined and not only will they and their loved ones get sick because of their stupidity, they'll spread it to others in the community.


Even if it was feasible, it wouldn't work. These people are fanatics and conspiracy theorists. There is overwhelming evidence as to the extraordinary threat to life posed by this pandemic, yet they completely dismiss and disregard it. If they were to be given a tour they'd just claim it was a Potemkin hospital* and carry on with their destructive ignorance.

*Not in that term, of course. They're far too ignorant to use that terminology. They'd just yell FAKE NEWS because that's what the fat orange jobby taught them to say.

DoBeDoBeLurk: *reads* Yep. Hero confirmed.

Now, I'm not thrilled that people on my side are just as willing to yell "fake person" as these deluded jackasses when they don't like what someone is saying.

These guys demanding we open up again come from the American underclass, and it is real. The are sick (or fat and unattractive, if that makes you feel better about yourself), ignorant, desperate, scared, and so insulated from reality that they don't know how to help themselves. They have been cultivated this way for the sake of political power by half of our two party system. And the other half can't work out whether to help them or pander to them. Pandering is way easier.

Our real American hero nurse makes a point of saying she'd help them, despite all the screaming and threats, because that's her job. As a nurse she's probably used to hurt people fighting her every step of the way. She is not a politician. For a politician, helping these people has a political cost, because they don't understand what real help looks like and they're terrified of it and they might vote for something else.

I don't know if they're ever going to wake up. Some of them do. Access to education and social services that allows them to stop flailing and lashing out would get more of them on our side and stop the others from being as much of a drain, but I don't know if we'll ever get all of them. Maybe their kids, or their kids' kids, because this has been going on a long time and a lot of these damaging systems are entrenched. But if we don't help them, we're gonna stay right where we are, for generation after generation.

For those of you paying attention, where we are is a bunch of sick people screaming at healthcare and government workers that they want to go back to work even if it kills them and the rest of us, because they don't know of any other way to survive. And they are waving American flags, because that's what they think this country stands for.


The only part of your post in dispute is whether these pro-pandemic protest organizers actually have grievances, or if they are being paid to do this.  The reason it's in dispute is this crowd looks an aweful lot like the Tea Party protestors during the Obama years, and the funding for those protests has been documented as coming from the Koch Brothers and other very rich Republican Assets.

If this hasn't already been suggested:

Anyone who "believes" either that the virus and disease are fake, over-exaggerated, or that they are somehow immune should be invited for a tour of the Covid-19 wards of their local hospital to meet the "patients" and determine for themselves if the quarantine is real.  Obviously they wont have any PPE during the visit, because it is in short supply, and handwashing is only for people who are afraid of the virus.  However once they have complete a full 1 hour tour of up-close observation and study of the patients, they will all be escorted to a large room together, where they will all wait for aout 2 hours, then get tested, and if any of them test positive, they will all be forcably quarantined in the nearest rec center/sports arena together for 2 weeks as the virus takes its course.

That is if any of these people actually believe that the virus isn't that bad.
