When I go to Wal-Mart I'm always there from 8:30-3:30. And I go there 5 days a week.

desertratt: Sorelian's Ghost: He said open schools would help the economy by allowing parents to return to work.

Anyone saying anything different like "won't someone think of the children" can get bent, this is the only reason they want kids in school...full stop.

I want my kids back in school because canceling everything is more of a threat than the virus.  My just turned teenager is smarter than average but we just had her on suicide watch for 3 days.  We were just getting back to semi normal practices, following all the protocols and had a tournament set up for late July.  Lord Ducey cancelled all gyms which killed any chance.


WTF did I just read?

There is no way to safely open schools. Doing so will only cause an even higher outbreak than our already high outbreak.

That is all.

powhound: It's not "airier" in a classroom.


Someone needs to go back to their classroom.

His (probably imaginary) child was going commit suicide because she couldn't go to a gym? That was my takeaway

My just turned teenager asked me with tears streaming down her face.  Daddy, we did everything they said to do, you said if we follow all the rules, everything will be OK, we followed all the rules and they cancelled us anyway.  She fell into a depressive state and sobbed for 2 solid days and we had her on suicide watch, because I was not going to let her be alone.

We need to get back to normal or we are going to have an entire generation of farked up kids.

Were this true that would be some world class shiatty parenting there.

Go make your shiat up on Facebook. They appreciate your kind of hyperbolic nonsense over there.

It's been a huge adjustment for everyone with lots of conflicting information, some from those without the best interests of a healthy society at heart. I'm sorry that your daughter has been hit so hard by the changes. Without a clear consensus on what is and is not safe, it's going to be difficult to move back towards normalcy. I don't blame anyone for wanting the life they had back, but I damn sure blame them for endangering my health and the health of the people I care about in the process of trying to do that.

You (and she) are going to have to accept facts. This disease may turn out to the be most consequential and life-altering event in our lives, and it may mean permanent changes. It may mean she will never go back to a physical school. If a safe and effective vaccine can't be found---and that is a distinct possibility----then it may mean life changes forever.

You have an obligation as a father to gently help her realize this, not to force others to all get sick because you can't accept the reality and severity of this crazy and unexpected life swerve.

This is primarily because things like proper child care and other life activities are shunned and demonized by corporations.

Yeah, assholes, parents have to actually take care of their kids too.

You completely messed that up. It supposed to be:

My daughter came up to me and said, Sir, we did everything we could, and with tears streaming down her face, she thanked you for your leadership during these tough times.

Yeah, kids are not resilient at all.

Good thing we never had world wars, where kids had to adapt to extreme changes in their daily lives.

Face masks are for your face Ronnie not your fingers and hands....

That's why they make latex gloves and finger coverings....

We didn't follow the rules, that's the problem.

She's learning how much of this country is populated with selfish assholes who don't think about anyone besides themselves.

It's a harsh lesson, but probably best to learn it when you're younger versus when you're older.

The life of one 13 year old isn't really enough to justify permanent lung damage and death for thousands. The Spock out front should have told you.

He shouldn't have lied to her and told her "we followed all the rules".

That's just bad parenting.

What he should have done is point at someone not wearing a mask and saying "this is why that tournament isn't happening".

They might have followed all the "rules" if they were going by the "rules" put out by Trump, which were essentially "Don't bother, it will go away.  Keep the economy going!"

Any day now, you can tell him you're sorry for doubting his genius governmenting.

This latest statement proves what an unrecognized intellect he is.
