Lewis County entered Phase 3 of Inslee's economic reopening less than a week ago.

And with these people in charge, it's likely to slip back down the phases.

/Is it possible to go back down the phases?

it's OK to be a free thinker. It's OK to ask questions. It's OK to say why,

Yes it is.  Only you're not doing that, you're endangering others and yourselves.

Asshole.

This is now my default reaction to all of it.  I'm out of farks to give trying anything less.

"When I said don't be a sheep it means you don't have to be a follower, it's OK to be a free thinker. It's OK to ask questions. It's OK to say why," Snaza said in an interview in his office in Chehalis, where he wore a protective face mask.

I wonder how he'd like that when I resist arrest.

"I'm not a sheep.  I don't follow the rules you're enforcing.  I'm a free thinker, and I question your laws and your authority."

I'm sure it will lead to a lively and interesting debate.

I wonder what he thinks about all the anti-marijuana sheep in his jurisdiction?

"It's ok to be a free thinker, question everything."

Dramatic pause.

Inslee went overboard to be diplomatic, and these are dangerous times that require a firmer stance.  Something like, "statements like that are dangerous from an official charged with protecting the public.  He has announced his intention to not enforce the law, and he should be removed before his irresponsibility gets people killed."
 
2020-06-25 5:56:42 PM  
Oh gee.
 
2020-06-25 5:56:51 PM  
"Asking questions" and then refusing to accept the answers isn't being a free thinker, it's being a non-thinker and obstinate jackass.

Well I think I see the problem there, they are saying why and not asking why.

When you ask why, you should be ready to listen to an answer. These people aren't doing that, because the answer has been said countless times.

"In case you guys didn't hear, Governor Jay Inslee, in his infinite wisdom, had decided after over a hundred some-odd days that we should all wear face masks inside and out. Here's what I say. Don't be a sheep,"

I'll remember that philosophy the next time a cop thinks he's in the position to give me direction.
 
2020-06-25 6:03:58 PM  
I hate that stupid, partisan sign and its also a big ass eyesore located off the I-5. Chehalis is not a bad little town, and its a great CTAF airport for practicing you touch-and-gos. Too bad some ignorant ass of a sheriff in the area.

"Now I understand where he's coming from. He saying science and data. But then to say outside in the environment every day when they're just walking down the sidewalk? I kind of have disagreements with that."

I don't know what it is about rural Washington state counties that the Sheriffs' think they can decide which laws they will or will not enforce.

Governor Inslee has been perfectly reasonable about all this and he's doing a better job than most.

Dammit--now I'm hoping Sheriff "Don't be a sheep, " comes down with Covid.

I'm sure he meant, "you should wear a mask", because sheep don't.

It should not be lost here that Sheriffs are elected. This guy just reflects the will of the morons who voted for him.

That still doesn't mean that the governor has the right or authority to force me to wear pants.  They are not my supervisor.

Doesn't get said enough: Questioning things means to ask if they're valid and look into the reasoning behind them. It does NOT mean to just automatically take a contrary position to them.Especially without a good reason.

So much of this, as well as things on every side of the social and political spectrums, just go viral (pun intended) on social media.  Social media, instantaneous 'broadcasting' of unverified information, is what's sending us all straight to hell.

Now, I love social media to reconnect with friends I haven't seen in 45 years, and it's great for keeping track of what's going on with various charity organizations I'm affiliated with, but the amount of bullshiat that flies around in echo chambers (like Fark has steadily become) outweighs the benefits, IMO.  YMMV.

I reckon another benefit of social media, although perhaps a curse, is you get to find out just how knuckle-dragging stupid people you know are.  Masks are a great example - the 'proof' that a surgical mask will lower your oxygen levels (no, that's n95 masks) and induce a stroke or heart attack!  The number of people I know that propagate that one is appalling.

The vaccine one stuns me.  THE GUBERMINTS ARE USING THE VACCINE TO INJECT TRACKING CHIPS!!!  Huh?  Even pointing out the incredible size difference between a vaccine needle and a chip needle, nope, 'chips are the size of a grain of rice11!!!'  Yeah, and they won't fit in a vaccine needle.  I must know 20 people who have proclaimed they will not get a Covid vaccine if one is ever made.

Those were certainly right-wing examples although with the folks I know, not completely. The stupidity and derp surely isn't limited to the right, and anyone thinking the left doesn't have complete dipshiats as well is....a delusional dipshiat.

Did Bush start the divide in our country?  No.  Obama?  Nah.  Trump?  No, not any more than any other politician. It started with social media and ran like Forrest Gump.

Imagine, a cheap way to sway the masses from anywhere on Earth, and probably even the Space Station.  OMG the Russians and Facebook and the election!!!11!  Like it wasn't China and Norks doing it to us as well.  Like every country with clout doesn't do it to every other country they don't like, and probably some that they do.  If they're not, they're fools.

Heamer: I'll keep listening to the consensus of thousands of medical professionals worldwide, Officer McPlague.


As long as it's not that Fauci cocksucker!

In any other timeline you could convince these people that the government was installing cameras at all traffic lights, and that facemasks defeated their AI tracking system.

There would be a farking facemask shortage like we've never seen.

Religion isn't the only contagious mental disease.
