This shiat where we just call everyone "heroes" without doing a goddamn thing for them is genuinely despicable in how obviously insincere it is.

We're not clapping for them, we're clapping to make ourselves feel better about sitting on the sidelines while other people endure all of the risk.

If someone calls you a "hero" for bagging groceries, it's because they're willing to let you die for their convenience.

How about the paycheck signing class claps with pay raises.  Oh, no, couldn't do that no.  But let's bang on some pots and crap instead.  Maybe another jet flyover!

I said before but I don't care for calling people hero's for doing their jobs. I didn't like it when we did it for soldier, firefighters, and cops and I don't like it now. I'm not going to deny that theses jobs can be dangerous and require skill and at times determination and bravery but that doesn't make you a hero for doing them. When a nurse does their job they aren't doing it because they love people and want to help they are doing it because it pays them money. Maybe they got into the profession because they wanted to help people but i guarantee if we stopped paying the vast majority of them would stop working. A hero is someone who goes above and beyond the expected, we all expect a doctor to try to save a sick person but we don't expect them to run into a burning building.

She said the public had "shown our appreciation" and it was now up to ministers to "reward" key workers.

Whoa whoa whoa. We haven't just been clapping. We've been sending thoughts and prayers in abundance!

Can't spend actual money on them though, we don't do that. Money goes to rich people, any suggestion other than that is socialisims and therefore HERESY!

ReAnimator: Fun fact about the Clap, once you get the medicine to clear it up, it's done in 2 weeks.

So with this global lock down, with most people staying at home and not hooking up with random people, we could have as a society eradicated the clap.

We're already trying to beat this one thing, might as well get a freebie thrown in, but we can't have nice things.

You didn't read the article did you.   This story is about the NHS, which is already a socialized institution.

Check this out, it made a lot of my coworkers as well as myself cry when we saw it. We're farking fed up with the stupidity, and the second wave hasn't hit yet.
