(The Hill)   The GOP has submitted its plans to North Carolina for keeping the convention safe. Basically, hand sanitizer. Lots of hand sanitizer. And, well, that's about it   (thehill.com) divider line

Great! Just farking great!

I live in Charlotte. Phase 2 started last Friday and it seems like every single person has decided it's all clear. No masks, restaurants and bars completely ignoring the 50% capacity restrictions, just pretending this is over. Our cases per day are rising, mostly due to more testing, and our hospitalizations are rising. The weather is perfect in between the rainstorms and more people are getting out and just ignoring the basic precautions. We will have a 2nd wave before the convention.

There is a very real possibility that Charlotte could be in the middle of an outbreak in August. I hope not. But it needs to be considered. 

Looks like a quarantine fall for me.

Just let them all in and don't let anyone out for at least 14 days.  Or never.

Sigh! Hand sanitzers. Against an airborne virus. The risk from smear infection is negligible. But hey, carry on.

Enjoy the Second Wave.

1918-1919 did the same thing...

Hello neighbor!
I've seen exactly the same thing. People just acting like nothing has happened.
 
2020-05-29 6:29:08 AM  
Pre-health screenings.  Yeah, that'll do the trick.  I mean, it's not like they're going to lie about where they've been or if they even have it...

Huh... would you look at that? Just 8 articles down...

Yeah, I'm still waiting for the "official" word on the one we already bought tix for (Motley Crue/poison/def lepp/Joan Jett). I'm so glad I bought the additional insurance on them.
 
2020-05-29 6:37:34 AM  
Sure. "Hand Sanitizer." They'll use it in the "Republican Men's Christian Fep Prayer Center" where the "prayer facilitators" were all hired from a Craigslist ad reading "Discreet Terry Crews lookalikes needed to dress as founding fathers and go all 'Rotisserie Chicken' on attendees"

I've got the greatest plan. North Carolina should issue an emergency evacuation of the city. Then allow the GOP to hold its convention. Be sure to bill the GOP (not Trump) for any damages.

The problem is that want to cancel it, but they also want to make it an "Us vs them" thing, cause they are assholes. Seriously, they are the worst.

fark em, let em have their convention. Let them put all their delegates in danger or make the call themselves.

But then again, with you plague rats the cruelty and murder is the point.

The GOP is proposing pre-travel health surveys completed in partnership with local health providers;

Immoral liars tell the truth? Ahahahahahahahah.

daily health care questionnaires delivered through a smartphone app;

Again, ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. Not. Happening. At least with Republicans.

He's a troll. He shows up in every thread with the same ignorance.

My phone just changed "ignorance" into "big orange". How funny.
 
2020-05-29 7:35:49 AM  
This is like the plot to the Dirty Dozen, German leaders will be in one place, go in and take them out to disrupt the command structure. Just in this case all the GOP leaders will be in one place and will do their very best to take themselves out.

Yes, because when I think of RNC conventions I picture fit, perfectly healthy, young people, think Greek gods and 60s Surfer dudes combined.  Oh, wait, no, I'm picturing the men the DNC dudes find on grinder for the after parties.

Let me try again, when I think RNC conventions, I picture a lot of fat, old, unhealthy people, people who haven't seen their feet in decades, people who think it's normal to use golf carts to go forty feet. God, that's a lot of elderly and ill people.

So, please, go right ahead with holding your convention, RNC.  It's going to be fine.

That can't be true. We've been told oh so many times that there are no trolls on Fark, and that there are no "protected" accounts that you can't talk smack to without getting a timeout.
You aren't calling Drew a liar, now are you?
 
2020-05-29 8:16:13 AM  
Well, this could actually work out OK, so long as the staff is protected. I mean, they say that they want herd immunity, this is an excellent chance for their base and leadership to prove its worth. And the cost.

If you go around somebody who's sick or elderly you put a mask on for the duration of the visit.

To be fair, there's only two old schooler accounts I ever get timeouts for engaging with. And I usually mostly earn those.

I do get a lot of deleted comments. This will eventually be another headstone in that graveyard.

So, everyone at the RNC will wear masks, because there will be a lot of elderly and unhealthy people there, based on the convention pictures I've seen.

Some enterprising young capitalist will come up with Sanitizer+Anal Lube and make a fortune at the Republican Convention.  A couple of ads on Grindr and he's a millionaire.
