I'm thinking it's more of a structural stupidity and there's nothing they can do.

It won't work when, "Fark you I've got mine," is the mentality of some 35% of the population.

Guy who stole the governorship is now whining? Karma's a biatch, guvnah.

It is but if the governor followed the example of the Italian mayors ("Ping pong is not allowed! Go home and play PS4!") some lives might be saved. Executives have a bully pulpit for a reason.
 
2020-07-08 5:52:07 PM  
"Continue to"?  When did they start?
 
2020-07-08 5:52:26 PM  
America allowed the big screaming morons to set the rules. The horse has already left the barn
 
2020-07-08 5:55:05 PM  
Good luck with that.
 
2020-07-08 5:55:43 PM  
Sounds suspiciously like the concept of the abstinence pledge. Likely just as effective.
 
2020-07-08 5:55:57 PM  
We needed a Bill of Responsibilities to go along with the Bill of Rights.  Stupid Founding Fathers.

Are you talking about the protesters/rioters in Atlanta who are causing all of this?

So, if you agree that people need to wear masks in a place where wearing a mask costs you business, gets you assaulted, etc-- they're going to give you a bunch of ways to announce that to the world?

Next up: sign the Georgian Antisemitism Pledge to receive a free six pointed star patch and complimentary tattoo!
 
2020-07-08 5:59:30 PM  
Huh. After years of the GOP telling its ranks to be stupid, I don't think this new message is gonna fly.

And ran into the hospital.

"The Georgia Safety Promise is a pledge between business owners and the public to join together to maintain a safe environment following Georgia Department of Public Healthand CDC guidelines," he added. "By working together, we can continue to protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians."

Narrator: "But nobody in the public made that pledge. It's just something a governor said while he was refusing to actually govern."
 
2020-07-08 6:00:51 PM  
I guess he missed the results of the election in 2016. Stupid won.

Everything is still volunteer, 'ey bub? Good luck with that. The roots of rebellion with taking safety measures have now become an all out war.

Oh look or, we got a live one
Why don't you proceed to tell us how you aren't a racist while showing us in every way possible that you are in fact deeply racist


Don't engage

Nature can help fix stupidity.
 
2020-07-08 6:03:03 PM  
So, Kemp is asking Georgians to stop being republican?
 
2020-07-08 6:03:04 PM  
This is the same guy who belatedly figured out asymptomatic plague rats can spread the virus -- months after public health officials had been warning folks about it.
 
2020-07-08 6:04:28 PM  
At this point, the only chance they have is to put everyone into large groups and let the virus burn through the population.

They'll die or become superheroes.
 
2020-07-08 6:04:48 PM  
The best way to start not being stupid is to stop electing d-bags like Kemp for Governor.

What? He certified/hacked his own election, purged voter rolls, closed minority precincts, and various other tactics to disenfranchise voters, resulting in him winning the election. Seriously Georgia, wtf?

The best way to start not being stupid is to stop electing d-bags like Kemp for Secretary of State.
 
2020-07-08 6:08:19 PM  
You ain't stuffing the genie back in that bottle.
The United States has lost control of this situation. Incompetent federal leadership coupled with stupidity and QAnon conspiracy theories has ruined the once chance we had to contain this.
My local city council mandated masks, and the death threats started immediately. I'd say let the stupid die, but it's likely these assholes will get me sick along the way.
We. Are. F*cked
 
2020-07-08 6:08:21 PM  
You know this is affecting people of color and immigrants disproportionally hard in GA right?

You know it's not the middle class fox news white people feeling this right? You know that's why they can ignore it because "I don't know anyone who has gotten this virus, it's a hoax" right?

Your fantasy of the white trumpers in GA getting what is coming to them is not based in reality
 
2020-07-08 6:08:28 PM  
He realizes he is governor of Georgia right?

Yeah they're farked.

Or at least require that a sitting Secretary of State resign their position if they want to run for another office.
 
2020-07-08 6:08:50 PM  
Haha he actually ran ads on Words with Friends before his election that read 'KEEP GEORGIA SAFE" but they were about MS-13. I guess when an actual problem popped up all he could do was ask people to keep themselves safe. Useless pustule

Yeah those people throwing shiat through the hat CNN building were pretty farking stupid.

voluntarily

Found your problem.
 
2020-07-08 6:13:41 PM  
He actually used the prospect of watching college football this fall persuade people to wear masks. At least he's playing to his base.

/when the only tool you know how to use is a hammer...

This is why the trumpers in GA can say it's a hoax, they are not the ones dying.
 
2020-07-08 6:14:08 PM  
Through that CNN....

Participating businesses will receive a digital toolkit of resources to share their commitment, including social media posts, signage for their business, and more.

So, our businesses are all going to get "exposure?"

I think we already got that.

Also:

Kemp's office said businesses that commit to the campaign agree voluntarily to follow the guidelines from his and the Georgia Department of Public Health.

Does nobody have editors or proofreaders any more?

At least he'll be wearing a proper robbery mask when he helps the party steal another election.
 
2020-07-08 6:19:03 PM  
Yup, Georgia went back to church, farking Covidiots don't know how to pray at their goddamned homes.
 
2020-07-08 6:21:08 PM  
You first, Kemp.
 
2020-07-08 6:23:51 PM  
Kemp is obviously part of the deepstate that is trying to take down Trump with the Wuflu hoax!

Aw, did governing turn out to be hard? 

Shoulda left it to the black woman. :/
 
2020-07-08 6:34:55 PM  
C'mon, guys. They pretended it was over. What else do you want them to do?
 
2020-07-08 6:37:30 PM  
Unobtanium:Does nobody have editors or proofreaders any more?

No. They don't. They've all be laid off because they cost money. There are newspapers that don't even have photographers any more, they get all their images off of the internet.
 
2020-07-08 6:40:11 PM  
Too late.
You're farked.
 
2020-07-08 6:40:49 PM  
"PLEASE don't make me tell you to wear masks or shutdown the state. Just do that on your own, ok?"

Here's the problem, governor Dumbass.

When you say that businesses can't operate, what happens is those businesses can then file against their business continuity and liability insurance packages. Well, the ones who have them can, the other ones are farked but if you can't afford insurance you can't afford to run the business anyway.

So. If you close them, they're covered. If they close themselves, they're not.

If workers can't work because of legal declarations from your office, they're eligible for unemployment. If you don't make that declaration, they go to work or they're fired.

So: Nobody's just going to do it. The system is set up so they can't.

Do your farking job or give yourself the Full Budd Dwyer and let someone else be governor.
 
2020-07-08 6:41:10 PM  
It's very interesting to see a slightly racist white run government not be able to push its White citizens around the way it pushes its black citizens around

Meh.

Thoughts and prayers man

You don't even wanna know about the "journalists."
