Whether or not you're ready, you're already riding it, and a lot of people who rejected surfboards and life rafts will try to drag you down as they drown.

I'd rather we end the first wave personally.

I stopped riding the bus. Since January I've been to one restaurant. I only go out to walk or to get groceries.  I avoided lines and crowds as much as I can. I don't hug or shank hands. I wipe EVERY thing with Everclear. I only eat food I'm going to cook or can wash. I don't have people over as much as I can. I got my flu shot and wear a mask. ALWAYS wear long sleeve and pants when in public buildings. I don't eat with my hands no more. Even pizza, tacos, and chips I use utensils or forceps.

If the numbers go up, apparently no one cares.
Godspeed, I guess

If it wasn't for the Republicans -- ALL of them -- we could be sorta OK by now.

But we're supposed to tolerate these assholes because ... fark if I know.

Because we should always let stupid farking idiots make a problem much much worse before we actually do anything about it, apparently.

The "plan" (if you can call it that) has always been to go to "herd" immunity ASAP, regardless of how many people that kills or permanently disables. How else can you explain the sh*tstorm we're in?

/simply leaving it to the states would have meant that PPE wouldn't have f*cking been stolen, if nothing else.

Fauci's Fake Virus? On the rise? More FAKE NEWS to get us to submit! More FAKE NEWS to rig the election! And that news about it mutating, too?

https://www.complex.com/life/2020/09/n​ew-study-shows-covid-19-mutating-in-th​e-us

Even more FAKE NEWS! Jus trying to scare us! Its just fearmongering! Scientists have no idea what they are doing and we know the truth! Just because Rand Paul, Donald Trump, and even Mitch McConnel don't have degrees, they know it better than those who got specialized education and work with viruses for decades! Scientists LIE!

You will not take my freedumz! You will not make me comply! We can reopen schools and businesses! As the man whose banana I'd suck dry said, it affects VIRTUALLY NOBODY! It doesn't really exist! It doesn't kill anyone!
/s

I am not really someone who believes that, but I can hear them. Their ignorant, redneck, racist voices... All of them touting that in response. And at this point, I don't care trying to educate them. I say let the redhats go out and party hard and catch it. And then rag on them for faking being sick from a fake virus. :)

*sigh*   G-Dammit America.   Are so many of us really this witless?   and how the hell is testing only up 22% ??  we were opening schools!   Testing should have been up 200% the first week of schools opening.

We can't do anything right anymore.  So tiresome.   Meanwhile the Senate and White House are all tingling over getting yet another SC Judge.

How does that make any sense at all?  Cases are increasing in Republican and Democratic states alike.  Governors and mayors are the ones who have the most powers to control the spread of this.  You cannot lay the blame on one party for the spread itself.

The more I read, the more I believe the "wave" analogy is inapt. It doesn't occur in predictable crests and troughs like a wave. It's more like a wildfire. People are the fuel. Deprive the fire of fuel and it will get back under control. Feed it fuel and it will consume everything.

But, the wrong states had stuff and the Executive Branch needed their stuff to refill the national stockpile that had been allowed to languish in decay for 3 years. Won't you think of the plight of the Executive Branch?

????
But that isn't even a thing or a plan.

They should have just opened every single thing 24/7/365

And use troops to keep lines and crowds to a minimum.
That is the safest keep everything open compromise.
But no business people had to cry and moan and cry and moan more and everyone else had to cry and moan now 200,000 people died real good


also they fired people long before any lockdown so the fact of matter is they fired people so they could hire them later at lower wages and the virus was just a weak excuse to do that


Also it's hurting young none fat ppl


And at this point

Fine let 5 percent of americans die.
But, I'll remember at every choice I make for the rest of my life.
I'm personally going to make every business person sorry that they signed off on this.
With diminished patronage if any at all.

That's find how what happens if everyone just throws their money in savings and spends no money except for renting groceries

At this point I'll just flush it down the toilet if I have to.
You business people have really missed everything up

Kinda funny how everything went to shiat as soon as federal assistance funds for those impacted by the outbreak ran out. It's almost like some entity with the power to affect significant change in people's behavior suddenly doesn't care anymore. I think I need one of those smart people with the red hats to assplain this to me.

I hope this data holds up.   I would love to have a safe way to put kids back in class.   If it is the 20 somethings that are the largest spiking age group, then maybe college/universities are doing somerthing wrong that the little kids are getting right?

We need Biden to urge governors to mask up and possibly more lockdowns in strongly affected areas.

I do most of these things. Haven't gone to a restaurant or even gotten take-out since last March. I know the take-out part is probably overkill, but the upside is I'm probably eating less crap than I used to. Getting my flu shot next week. I do eat with my hands, but only after washing them with soap and water really well.

But I do work in the library of a large university and am surrounded by college students. The staff are issued N95 masks but we have to wear them over and over. Students coming into the library are required to wear masks but pretty much every time I go to work I have to tell at least a couple of kids to put their mask back on. I'm thinking of having a shirt made up with a photo of the Negan character from The Walking Dead, holding his baseball bat, with the words "Keep your damn mask on or face the consequences."

My library has only been back open to students since the beginning of September and I'm already exhausted by all of it--the stress of masking up, sanitizing keyboards constantly, trying to keep distant from everyone--all of it.

But there was one bright note today; this afternoon I checked my county's Supervisor of Elections site and my November ballot was mailed out to me today. I can't wait to get it, put down my mark for Biden/Harris, and hand-deliver it to my polling place.

Facts have never mattered to Trump. The absolute best case scenario is that he thinks everyone catching it naturally is going to be as good as everyone getting a vaccine; the vaccine(s) coming before the former happens is a bonus as far as he's concerned.

Too late for that.   Followers of the Cult of Trump both politicians and citizens won't follow any rules or suggestions put in place by a Biden Administration.

And without batting an eye, if Biden comes president, they will start to blame the federal government for the continue problems with coronovirus after giving Trump a pass for the last 9 months
