Wait.... I thought that this all disappeared back around Easter because that's when the Jesus-y death cults celebrate egg laying rabbits....

Hey, Gavin, while you're at it, can you issue a notice that we are all required to wear baseball caps because it helps contain the virus so all the "nobody tells me what to do because MY FREEDOM" folks will stop wearing MAGA hats?

Actually, scratch that.  It's better that they identify themselves like that.

Arizona would do this if Ducey wasn't a muppet with a hand up his ass.

Watching America stumble, reel, and trip through this pandemic makes me pine for the days I was just embarrassed by Trump.

Trump is just one of the symptoms. It's his "base" of yowling CHUDs who are the cancer.

This virus makes me think it's time to be proactive against conservatism, not reactive.

Start arresting people who don't wear masks in public. Start charging people who make threats over not wearing a mask with terrorism. Charge Karen, Becky, and Susan with felonies if they cough on people.

And, most of all, tell conservatives to GO fark THEMSELVES instead of each and every blue state caving to their farking whims to reopen.

I would agree. But, let's consider and additional option...

Enact your proposal in blue states. But, allow the red states to pollute themselves with abandon. Restrict travel from those states, and support to them. Then just sit back and let the conservatives kill themselves with the plague. Thus the problem takes care of itself.

The next big pandemic question I'm gonna be wondering about as we continue into the summer is: are state governors willing to mandate a second shutdown, even if the feds are insisting that things are improving and pressuring for a return to normal?

I mean some states are willing to go all in because whatever reason, they don't think it's real, they're worried about re-election prospects, want to cozy up to Trump, whatever. I think that hopefully some that haven't been hit as hard and are committed to slowing the spread will see the burning wreckage and decide "well I don't wanna be THAT" and act accordingly.

Yep. Word is they'll start shutting stuff down again in Vegas. Except the casinos of course, because it's not In God We Trust. It's The Almighty Dollar is God.

Been laid off from a casino since March. Was even warned that people who get called back could face being re-laid off.

Was speaking to a coworker, and we're wondering if perhaps finding new jobs with less public exposure might just be a good thing.

If the trumpists are the cancer, the reich wing corporate media is the AIDS.

Sorry to hear that. Talking to a friend earlier we were trying to figure out the rising rates. He said it may be tourists from Arizona. I dunno, but I keep thinking the strip has something to do with it. But who knows? There's so little contact tracing.

Ugh. Me and my buddy are gonna start self quarantining again this week.

Requiring people to wear masks doesn't help much when you open restaurants and bars way too farking early. Can't expect people to wear masks while eating or drinking. More younger people are testing positive? No shiat Sherlock.

I live in Santa Clara county, first county to shutdown in the country. Our bars and restaurants have been shutdown since March 15th. Only open for takeout food or drinks. Virtually everyone here is wearing masks and practicing social distancing. People here are generally better educated, thankfully. They get just how serious a pandemic is. My county health director is one badass lady and she's doing an awesome job. I feel bad for my friends and relatives in socal, but I'm really glad I'm where I'm at right about now.

I can't speak for the entire country but it seems here in Utah almost everything remained open except movie theaters, gyms and salons (hair, nail and massage) and dining in. Maybe a few other things but most of it was open. And yet people are whining "the economy". I might have missed a bit but how much of what was closed counts for "the economy"?

Suspend rent/mortgages on those businesses and pay the lenders with that PPP money. Provide UBI for those owners/workers while shut down.

Seems simple but I guess I'm not a grifting politician. I actually am surprised that we as a country are still floating along. Guessing it's just all gonna fall to the ground as soon as Biden is in office.

Hmm... maybe, just maybe, in retrospect, it may not have been such a good idea to reopen businesses known to be social gathering spots, where people usually talk loudly to make themselves heard, and necessarily remove their masks in order to ingest varying quantities of a drug that impairs their judgment.

This should have been one of California's "phase 4" reopenings, along with large gathering spots like concert venues. The same sort of crowd mentality exists.
