This country is doomed.
In the last 7 days we had 1 million new cases.
The total cases since COVID started is 12,227,159.
So if this keeps up were on track to get 12 million new cases in 12 weeks.
The same amount it took 11 months to get.
But don't worry we won't stay at a million cases a week.
It's gonna go a lot higher.
The spike 2 weeks after Thanksgiving is going to be thru the roof.

But I need to see my family because of freedom and stuff!

I have seen videos of grown adults whining about how disney isn't fully open yet  and how they need to go and hate sitting at home. I don't plan on doing shiat until I get the shot and if it isn't until next year so be it. I was planning on a road trip over the summer, turns out it wasn't in the cards, guess I'll wait for next summer.

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 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.

I think the problem with these people is that they get bored too easily but don't know how to entertain themselves, so they've relied on other people to do it for them for as long as they can remember. Other people, amusement parks, movies, all things they *need* so as not to be left alone with their own thoughts.

Just sitting at home, playing music, trying out some new hobby (like the Victory Garden thing a few dozen farkers here were gearing up for in March/April), working on some existing  like writing or w/e, are alien to these folks. Hell, my sister took up knitting so she could stat busy inbetween working at her new job from home.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah, my dad died three months ago.  I couldn't see him in the hospital while he was still able to converse or even had awareness.  Because of corona rules.  We didnt even have a funeral.  Nobody cares about my suffering.  So why should others care about your suffering?  Lock your farking ass down and maybe, just maybe, we can have real funerals again.  But if you don't, get used to what's app.

Were you so worried about your family when you moved halfway across the country so you could make more money? When you put your kids in daycare? When you broke up with a great person because your jobs wouldn't match up, ever?

Oh but NOW family and friendship is the most important thing.

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.

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.

Mid-December for hospitalisations to truly hit after the Thanksgiving super spreader event.

Many areas are already hitting the limits of ICU beds.

It's going to be awful.


Agreed that it will be terrible.
You know what would lift people's spirits up then, in such bleak times?
Xmas caroling, door to door, in large groups. See if the neighbors will join you as well!

Walker: This country is doomed.
In the last 7 days we had 1 million new cases.
The total cases since COVID started is 12,227,159.
So if this keeps up were on track to get 12 million new cases in 12 weeks.
The same amount it took 11 months to get.
But don't worry we won't stay at a million cases a week.
It's gonna go a lot higher.
The spike 2 weeks after Thanksgiving is going to be thru the roof.

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.

Why are we expected to sacrifice when the hacks in our state governments won't do the same?
