People here stopped wearing masks and keeping socially distant. Idiots.

Turns out, doesn't matter how well you start off, if you open to early, it comes right back. What did they think was going to happen?

When my pub temporarily opened (with all of the precautions in place), I saw a former bartender hanging out. He's in his late twenties and is immature even for his age. (Sorry, kids.)

He was walking around drunk, shaking hands and giving high fives and not keeping distant from anyone. He came up to shake my hand, and I did the "elbow tap." His slurred reply? "Coronavirus is over, man!"

I feel like I'm surrounded by morons. Does anyone not know history and what happens during epidemics? There are waves. But everyone in this stupid country just thought that when the numbers fell, it was all over. WAVES, people.

No, I'm not angry.

And when I posted on Facebook a plea for everyone to keep wearing masks, a friend of mine replied with this:

You are the brainwashed person. There are experts that say that it is harmful. Stop believing every piece of bullshiat that they say on TV.

Yes, he is a Bibi/Trump supporter who thinks 5G is a conspiracy and that the pandemic is actually a plandemic. Eyeroll.

You are going to see this happen world wide as people let down their guards till a vaccine is produced and readily available.  Countries are like the dutch boy sticking his finger in holes in the dike.. eventually you don't have enough fingers or you aren't looking in the right place.

I like pointing out how people in cold weather climates wear masks all the time.

Then they say it is hot.

Then I point out desert cultures, particularly in the middle east that wear masks for extended period of times.

I ask how come they can handle it just fine and if it is because they are "stronger people" then you are.

/why yes... I am expecting to have a punch thrown at me eventually

I've stopped talking to my (American) parents because they still support Trumpism. But I've given Israelis here a pass because they think Trump is good for Israel. It's an understandable argument, even though I disagree.

But now with everything else, those certain Israeli friends are getting close to that point as well.

That's what I think when I see the GOP people claiming they can't handle it.

"How weak and pathetic are you? Oh, is that why you need a gun? Because you're such a soft, weak target that a kinda-mean kindergartner would easily just break you into pieces if you didn't have it?"

The CNN article spelled New Zealand wrong. Also, they might want to invest in a new map. They think it's in the Middle East when it's really in the South Pacific.

We need ad campaigns. We need to SHOW that VIRUSES DO NOT GO AWAY unless they are VIGOROUSLY fought against.

Polio used to be rampant. But people got the message that vaccines work. TB used to kill thousands. Successful ad campaigns got people to change their behavior.

Wait, you mean Israel's "fark it, let's reopen!" plan WASN'T the right move?

// I wonder what implications that has for the US' "fark it, let's reopen!" plan...

At this point, we need an ad campaign just to tell people that VIRUSES THAT KILL ~120,000 PEOPLE IN 4 MONTHS ARE BAD MMMMMMMK?

Kind of like all the protests we allowed?  Reports are starting to come in that it accelerated the spread of the virus.

A couple of the old boys at the bar I was servicing the other day were talking about all they say now when someone tries to force them to wear a mask is, "I cant breath."

I didnt know what rage vomiting was until that moment and every cell of my body wanted to mud hole stomp them.

People farking suck.

We get it, you are a mediocre white man. You are scared of change. You are easily triggered. Times are scary. You'll be ok.

You think this has anything to do with me being scared of change?  You really much be living in a narrow world view.

I support BLM, actually went to a rally here in town, but really tried to observe social distancing rules and wore a mask.  I actually spoke and welcomed them to town and told them that peaceful protests are always welcome in our town.  I also addressed a few young black girls that experienced racism in the local school and encouraged them to understand that those that put you down are lesser people and insecure and that they are the future and if there is anything the municipality can do to help them, feel free to ask.

But the fact is that most people at the rally did not honor distance protocols and many were not wearing masks.. and that is inevitably going to cause the spread of the disease to one of the most vulnerable sectors of our society and its kind of sad.  We are blaming all the spread on the MAGAts and not accepting any responsibility for our actions.

For me the biggest sign that people are no longer taking things seriously is seeing a two young/healthy parents at the grocery store with their young children.
