Are you a script? Did you have some psychological break and are now focused entirely on this story?

Apparently, sacrificing during COVID is for the little people, not the elites.

You don't live in California. You seem to travel freely despite health warnings and consideration for others. You seem to have no problem with the myriad of conservatives going all over the place and telling people not to listen to health advice. You've brought this up over a dozen times in a week.

Grow up.

Okay, shut-in.

I want to be surprised after reading the article about how stupid people can be, but I'm not at this point.  I'm beyond the point where I'm caring about how stupid the masses are.  Based on what we're seeing leading up to Thanksgiving, you'll drive yourself insane wanting the masses to behave themselves.  All you can do is take care of yourself and your family.  You care about your family - that's great.  Unless they live with you, the best way to take care of them is to not visit them and decrease the risk they get sick or die.

My town has doubled its corona cases in the last five days.  My county has increased its cases by a factor of 5 in just over two weeks.  I'm unapologetic about spending thanksgiving alone and stocking up on supplies (not extremely so - it doesn't take much to keep one person going for a while).  I have no interest in potentially getting the virus or infecting others with it.  I'm finding new indoor hobbies to keep myself occupied.  I've found many outdoor activities I can do solo.

Get a zoom account, keep your family safe, and keep yourself safe.

I was in a work meeting and someone was talking about her plans to fly to a wedding: she was going to wear a mask on the airplane and take her temperature before boarding. Her boss gently tried to explain that this isn't going to detect asymptomatic transmission beforehand, or prevent her spreading asymptomatically to her whole family, but she was determined.

Not a script, he's just reminding us that since the real people (Our Glorious Leaders) aren't worrying about all this nonsense, why should we?
I am 78 years old and I take precautions, but if you are under 40 and scared of all this you are just cowards. This disease kills old people. You want to visit family for Thanksgiving (or Christmas)? Go visit them and enjoy--just take care not to infect Grandma or whoever needs protection. Christ people, we are not helpless. Quit spreading doom & gloom. We are all going to die sometime. No one gets out of this alive. You'd better live your life wile you can.

What was really needed was a competent pandemic response team, like the one disabled by President Prom Queen, to nip it in the bud.  Failing that, we needed President Miss Runner-up to be seen wearing a mask, and Senator Turtle to fund a month or two of serious national shut-down.   We can shoot down all the rouge planes, people are still going to go eat a turkey and complain about the rigged election.

Smoking GNU: Kaeru: Smoking GNU: CarnySaur: naughtyrev: God, I hate people. I have an operation scheduled 2 weeks after Thanksgiving, and I don't know if I'll be able to have it because of morons, and if I can have it, I'll be terrified the whole time because I'll be in a hospital filled with people who have Covid.

I was supposed to have one last week but have delayed it.  I'm not only worried for myself, but the poor person that is required to drop me off and pick me up.

My sympathies for the both of you, this is the untold fallout from this whole thing, all the people who need other medical attention getting absolutely shafted as a result.

These people only care about themselves. They can't see past their own noses to the impact that their behavior has downstream.

Yet they will be the ones being a massive Karen about getting the nicest hospital bed, the best care, and a ventilator when they are being told there's no room in the hospital and go sit in your car with this oxygen mask until we call your number.

People that have become used to instant satisfaction just think there's an infinite amount of everything available for their consumption at their pleasure, including other people's lives. It's awful.

I'm assuming you don't mean the 2 farkers i replied to.


You are assuming correctly!  I refer to those who are making it difficult for people to go about getting the regular care they need from the medical community because their freedom needs are filling the hospitals.

I've got a couple friends that are needing surgery (through no fault of their own) that have been delayed because people can't mask up and stay the fark away from other people. It's infuriating.

There was only one chance to get this right, and we didn't. Everything else has been shades of grey. I'm not one of the people spending a lot of time trying to blame this on Trump, but competent and decisive leadership on the issues surrounding a pandemic reaching everyday Americans would have gone a VERY long way toward a different outcome than this one.

That said, I think this is the way he and his closest advisers saw this all going down. When your constituency is just a for/against-me metric, you don't care that people are suffering and dying unnecessarily.

Probably because of the "last Thanksgiving" thing.  My girlfriend refused to cancel her travel plans this summer to see her grandma.  It might be the last year that grandma remembers who she is.  This was also not during peak COVID or travel to a high-risk area, but I still couldn't talk her out of it.

"Right.. We had to get up at 3 AM, two hours before we went to bed,
eat used Covid tests for breakfast, then work 27 hours at McDonalds,
and when we got home,, our Dad would sneeze all over us and dance about our graves singing Hallelujah!"


LUXURY!
I worked in the mobile creamatoriums from dawn til dusk, and all we had to eat was the fat drippings from the bodies. Then I went home to my bed of used PPE and hobo lice, and I was grateful to have it!

Ambitwistor: Skeleton Man: 198,537 new cases yesterday. Imagine how many people will be flying and visiting family that don't yet know they're sick and already contagious.

I was in a work meeting and someone was talking about her plans to fly to a wedding: she was going to wear a mask on the airplane and take her temperature before boarding. Her boss gently tried to explain that this isn't going to detect asymptomatic transmission beforehand, or prevent her spreading asymptomatically to her whole family, but she was determined.


At my job they said anyone that visits people outside their bubble or leaves he states had to quarantine for two weeks when they get back.

Well, with the Canadian land border closed there's about 100k that for sure won't be.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Covid has given me an easy way of avoiding spending 3 days with my MAGA cult family. Thank you, Covid!


My stepdad's family is full of dumpster-trash Trumpers, so I agree.  He seems like the only moderately sane one of the bunch, but I guess they're all family now.
