I once said the US is dog eat dog.
And people disagreed.
Well, sorry. It is. Just look at how 40% of America is completely okay with people dying, unnecessarily in order for everyone to keep making that money money baller baller bling bling.
And I have to say if you're going to feel like it's about people dying then I don't want to hear people irate when a criminal kills somebody because it's the exact same mentality.

Make sure you're registered to vote

Make sure you know your polling place

Dont forget to research local elections

And vote.

It not like it's death panels or anything.  It's just the free market deciding who lives and who dies.

Lighten up, Francis.

Weeeeeeeeird .... that's the exact amount of time it's going to take me to badblocks check this garbage harddrive I'm working on.

Doesn't matter, though, because there's literally nothing else to do, now.

This is what happens when you vote for Republicans.

People are numb to the deaths now. People are flying again, vacationing, and acting like nothing is wrong. Some people wear masks, and others don't while doing all of this. Places are opening up like it is over, and it is not. People have accepted death, and are going on with their daily lives. I find it kind of concerning that a lot of places in this world have accepted death like that, when a lot of these deaths can be avoided. They rather seek out death than prevent it.

And stayed away from each other. And not entered places that already had ppl in it. And didn't make lines. And didn't make crowds.

At this point, I'm going to start laughing at the dead. Because it's clear people don't care. I keep seeing people in groups. Enjoy dying f++k sticks.

They can easily have all those things while slightly modifying their behavior, like wearing a mask and social distancing. And doing those simple things won't last forever, only a year or so, very likely. Earlier generations actually made real sacrifices for their communities and families.

Criminals generally know that they're actually going to make money, at least until they get caught.  That 40% got the plague and they're paying the economic cost anyway.

But don't tell them that.  They won't believe it.

You don't have to stay inside. You have to stay away for lines of people, and crowds.
WTF? This isn't complicated. And it isn't impossible.
Before c19 women were more than able to stay away from me.
Where are all those same people that same stupid mentality?
Because After this crap started people no longer try to avoid me they're now drawn to me for some reason????????? Serious question why is that happening?

I'm a paramedic and a teacher. I picked up extra shifts when the schools locked down to cover for the full timers with health problems and family concerns.

I've taken care of COVID patients. Was diligent about PPE and staying away from elderly family.

Then they farking decided to put us back to in person teaching putting lots of my coworkers in danger with a thin cloth mask. These are people who literally can't wear an N95 all day.The only area they can catch their breath is outside because we're all breathing the same recirculated air.

Soldiers in war are asked to sacrifice a great deal more in terms of their personal freedoms, for the good of society. And the cost of this virus is very much like a war. The sacrifices we're being asked to make, however are are trivial, hardly "basic humanity."

New Zealand did that, and pretty much got rid of the virus there, and they are not the only ones. The US needs a nationwide stay at home order. At least 6 weeks of that, and we could actually control this damn virus. People are seeking out death. A lot of people are saying if I die, I die. They do no care if they are infected, and spreading it to others. A lot of people do not think this virus is that big of a deal, and only the weak die from it. They do not care if they get it, they will end up caring though once they realize that they are actually dying from it.

We are selfish. If we all just stayed at home for about 2 months, obeyed social distancing rules, and wear a mask, we would not have this issue. All that would have helped if we had competent leaders, but we don't.

It's something that those of us in the museum field are fretting about.  Especially the municipal small-town museum part of the field.  Some jackasses decided the perfect building for a museum would be a historic structure, and didn't bother to install HVAC in the building.  Only part of the historic building has air vents, the rest relies on window units for cooling and good intentions for heating.  One colleague in a different town has a building with no air vents, but steam pipe radiators for winter heating.  Zero air flow.  So now all I can do is hope that the mayor doesn't override my decision and force us to reopen.  Same story that multiple colleagues have across the state.

Actually, if everyone stays inside it will go away.
