It's really a good thing at a time like this that we don't face an existential threat.

It's a piece of farm machinery that's used for chopping off hands.

Neighbors just flew multiple states away and back.
To get a puppy.

Because during a pandemic the most important and needed thing....is a 2nd dog.

GDI so much, I was told there would be adults when I got older. Not a bunch of grown whining, impatient toddlers who barely know how to function! Did a majority of them move to NZ or something?!

Since Mah Freedumb!! is proportional to Republican voting, this is not entirely bad. We might as well get some schadenfreude and MAGA culling out of the fiasco they gave us.

I'm sure their local animal shelter was fresh out of dogs to adopt too, so that's necessary travel

My brother took a vacation in Mexico two weeks ago. Then he came back (by plane). Then he got sick. Then he was positively diagnosed with Covid.

And I'm very proud of myself for not screaming at him and calling him all sorts of names over the Zoom call where he told us.

/He says he's getting better

I've flown three times. Wore a N95 mask, gloves, glasses, and stayed the fark away from people in the airport. The first two times I wasn't worried - there weren't many people traveling. The third time was two weeks ago and I was concerned. Lots more people traveling and people flat out not wearing masks or wearing them incorrectly, etc. Probably won't fly again until there's a safe and effective vaccine, which is to say probably not any time soon.

I have friends that went to Cabo. Other friends who went to Hawaii for two weeks. I am so pissed off. Here I am staying home, doing everything right, sacrificing and these nimrods go on vacation. And I guarantee the will not quarantine for two weeks when they get back.

Yes, but a study underwritten by the airlines said that flying was safe and the air circulation was even better than being outside, so who are you going to believe?

No, we're saying that only dumb people are traveling.

Not all dumb people are Republican, but all Republican voters are dumb.

Well, there are areas of the country where they are out.  But even that excuse won't fly.  There are also areas where there are a glut and networks are set up to transport pet adoptees across the country for less than those plane tickets.

Okay but hold on, how fast does the combine have to be running? Has it been sharpened lately? Is it stationary?

Sigh, this "pandemic" has gone exactly as I said it would back in April. If it was as deadly as you farkers claim it is the half methods we have employed would be worthless. It might not be the flu but it is not something that the world needs to half shut down and destroy economies with half measures that do nothing.

If this was a real pandemic people would know what a real shutdown is. People would understand what drastic measures look like. That day may come.....Coronavirus isnt it. Instead we get this ridiculous "pandemic" that politicians are using to increase their power. They dont believe it that is why you see all the hypocrisy among the elite. No condemnation of "protests" or rallies to cheer Biden win.

Just like "climate change hysteria" get back to me when all the elites sell their beach properties around the world. They dont believe their own hyperbole why do you?

Well, technically, people should start calling it a combination harvester, or something similar, since it looks stupid to use the word "combine" as a noun.
