Santa works with Vladimir Putin and Xipoohbear to socialize gifts to a religious minority. NORAD tracks Santa. Santa is an adversarial spy.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS MF

They don't care.

Lib educated people tell them not to do something (in order t save themselves) so of course they're still gonna do it. Also, they're good god-fearing christians, and illness don't affect them, so if they do get the disease they were intentionally infected by a lib. Also it's a hoax. Dear leader told them so so that's how you know it's true.

You can argue logic all you want with these plague rats, they'll never do the right thing, for themselves or for those around them.

I am enforcing a strict no face to face at work. I am making one exception to witness testing on the 3rd and I might still back out. I work from home as much as i can. I should probably retire.

I thought Trump won the war on Christmas.  I mean, he did declare it so.  Was it a Bush "Mission Accomplished" moment?

It's pretty easy to win a war when only 1 side is participating.  Did they lose a major battle to themselves and now need to regroup and start again or something?

We were talking to my SIL in Austria, and it seems like they've decided to go into strict lockdown now to drive numbers down so that they can hopefully open back up for Christmas. While there is certainly a lot of grumbling, she says, most people understand the goal and are making the necessary sacrifices so that they can enjoy the Christmas holidays together.

I doubt we'd ever get that kind of solidarity in the U.S. anymore.

New York City Councilman Joe Borelli has had enough of the holiday-hating nanny state. In a Nov. 11 tweet, Borelli proclaimed that he and his would have a normal Thanksgiving, complete with out-of-season dessert

From Staten Island? Of course he is.

Why retire because you are being safe? Are you getting your job done? If yes, keep doing what you are doing.  You've held on for over 8 months, with any luck, in another 4 or 5 you will have a chance to get vaccinated. (From your name I'm guessing you were born in 1960.) Hang in there, there's a light at the end of the tunnel, stay safe and strong.

and I am usually the guy who can't stand Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. One holiday at a time. This year, BRING IT ON. Rudolph, Frosty, Elf on a Shelf, everything. Deck the Halls, trim the tree, run grandma over wit a reindeer. I don't care. I'll even listen to Mariah Carey. Seems like if there has ever been a year that needs an overdose of Christmas it's 2020. Maybe Santa can defeat the bad Karma we've had. Or at least a reindeer can drop a load in Trump's stocking.

But now we're down to the big traditions. People didn't want to skip spring break, or Easter, Mothers Day, or memorial Day barbecues, Fathers Day, the Fourth of July, the annual trip to Disneyland, summer vacation at the lake, birthdays, haircuts, Halloween.

This country spends two months out of every year doing the slow stroke for Christmas jizm. We can't handle skipping those little things, we sure as shiat can't handle skipping the uptight Patriotic Day of Thanks tradition, and everyone is already wound up about the libruls taking away the Religious Patriotic Spending Holiday, so we're farked.

Yeah, I get it. "I like the lights, and the cinnamon smells and fambly and memories and who are you to tell me that Christmas sucks - I'm gonna celebrate with my whole fambly like we do every year!" 

And then, after the deaths surge in January, "I'm tired of the lockdown - I want a Valentimes dinner in a restaurant!" And we pull the needle back to the beginning of 2020, side one.

This won't end until all the stupid people kill someone, or are dead themselves.

Maybe that's good?
considering we live in a world where it's okay to run over pedestrians just because they're not in the crosswalk.
Given that reality maybe we deserve to die on a ventilator?

seriously the indignation drivers feel at pedestrians is actually disgusting beyond all comprehensible belief


It's outright embarrassing to humanity

Yes, blame the covidiots, Turnip's well-loved "poorly educated." But see also Farhad Manjoo's detailed outline of risks and bubbles and quarantines, and his ultimate "fark 'em, I'm going to a family dinner anyway, and let my parents hug my kids, and let the chips fall where they may." Idiocy abounds on all sides.

In a pro-biden democrat family, believe in the pandemic, but still will do christmas because of course.

So if pro-science democrats are doing that, what you think the trumpers will do?

Those 73 million who voted for trump, literally every single one of them will have a christmas party.

We are rapidly approaching ICU capacity limits in much of the country, with infection rates still climbing.  That's before the infections and hospitalizations get a boost from 'Thanksgiving to own the libs'.  By the time Christmas rolls around, it's entirely possible that the knuckle-dragging portions of the US, along with a lot of the rest of it, may have hospitals at capacity to the point where they have to re purpose non-ICU, non-pulmonary parts of the facility to handle covid patients as best they can.  The point is, if these yahoos are going to go through Thanksgiving as if everything is hunky-dory, the "war on Christmas" is going to be from the amount of the population dying or seriously ill, not from Democrats trying to save them from themselves.

"The claim that liberals want to break down your family may not be the first thing you think of when you consider the so-called War on Christmas, but it's always there. In a press release titled "Top Ten Reasons Why Liberals Hate The Holidays," a church in Colorado made this connection explicit. The church collects the religious freedom argument in one bullet point on the list (No. 4: "The letters C-h-r-i-s-t are still seen in public"). Other entries include "College bowl games encourage competition," "Winter lull in global-warming hype," and "Christmas lights waste electricity," but the telling one is "Daycare centers are closed." "Liberals prefer kids growing up institutionalized in daycare and government schools than having them raised at home by loving parents," the church claimed.  Hygge weeks of extended family togetherness, the press release argued, are not the future that liberals want."

Wtf does this paragraph even say?
