Wait until two weeks after Thanksgiving. Hospitals will be overflowing, people left in hallways to die, etc. But they just had to get together for Thanksgiving. No one tells us what to do! Mah freedom! Tyranny!

Family.  Family.  Family.  Just say that word over and over until you're magically immune from the Rona.

Parts of my family are like this. They only get together with family. And coworkers at work. And the faithful at church. I mean, please tell me who the fark it is you're not getting together wth that you used to see all the time?

I just can't understand this stupidity. My Aunt died on Sunday after over a month long battle with COVID. It attacked system after system with the hospital desperately fighting back for each one, until her whole body just collapsed.  She didn't have a choice, she was in an adult retirement community and they refused to implement anti-COVID measure until it ripped through the home.

I hear and see this all the time. Mom is in the ICU on a bipap because she can't breathe. 40 years of smoking finally caught up to her. Dad's already dead- I never ask, but it's always cigarettes or booze related. She is spending her last few hours telling her children not to repeat her mistakes.  Decisions are being made, directives being finalized- and always somebody gets up in the middle of it to go outside and smoke. I always assume in 30 years from now, that person will be the one laying in the hospital bed telling their children not to repeat their mistakes. Everybody always thinks it's going to be somebody else and they seem genuinely shocked when it hits them.

There's a BIG difference between "not agreeing with my views" and actively spreading a freaking disease. But you probably knew that, because you're real smart.

Republican voters, politicians and the (R) POTUS are all screaming bloody murder, tyranny and "MAH FREEDOM" about wearing masks and you're upset at the people saying "f*ck it, I'm tired of trying to help them when they are so actively resisting.  Let's just let them be?"

It's not about "hoping they die", it's fatigue from saying exactly the same shiat to them for 9 months while they continue to be disease vectors to show off their freedoms.  At some point you run out of patience and just say "fine, go".  We've watched this film every day since March.  Super spreader events galore, but a large section of the country doesn't care.

The democratic ideal is about helping people regardless of whether they believe the same as you or not.  But you can only open the door.  They're literally killing themselves to spite us, because we actually give a shiat about protecting them.  I completely understand when people reach the point of "fine, go".  We'll watch them infect their entire families, and cry as their parents and grandparents die by the New Year.

And for literally the 300th time since this started, we'll say "ok everyone, see what happened?  Don't do this".  And another group will do the same farking thing on December 25th.  Because they're stupid, and it's frustrating.

These are also the same people who hate getting together with family, all the fuss of holidays, hating on their MIL or uncle. Any other year it'd be "fark the holidays, amirite".

No, we hope YOU suffer from the consequences of YOUR decisions, not anybody else who didn't make that decision.

You know, like choosing to spread a disease that very few have any immunity to.

If ONLY drivers died in car crashes, I'd be all for letting people decide when they're too drunk to drive. If they were wrong, they'd pay the price. The problem is that OTHER people also pay the price when you have 19 drinks and try to drive home.

There seems to be some feeling that if your family loves you then they won't give you 'rona, and it'd be offensive to stay away. My coworker (who has some risk factors) is going to spend Thanksgiving with her daughter and her fiance and there is no talking to her about it. All I can do is just hope for the best.

Are they a bunch of self centered assholes? Yes

But can they reach out and probably change the minds of other self centered assholes more than other people can? Also yes.

People now have this stupid idea that you must like someone for them to be helpful to you. That's not true.

Covidiots are playing Russian roulette but every third trigger pull is directed at an innocent crowd. Hoping they off themselves first after trying for years to take away their gun isn't the worst position to take.

This is true but hoping people get it , and die from it because they didn't stay home is evil. You know because you must be.

All snarkeyness aside. Yes people should ware mask and follow proper procedure. On the other hand people shouldn't wish other people the worst because I to you so effect.

People have been warned since farking MARCH that COVID is not a walk in the park, and that they should take steps to prevent spreading it.  But no, it's a huge dummycrat HOAX, we ain't gonna live in fear of the 'Rona!  fark everybody else, we're gonna do whatever we want!

It's not so much "hoping they die", it's more a case of not having any farks left to give for people who didn't have a fark to give themselves.  If you don't care enough about yourself to take recommended precautions, why should we give a fark about you?  They always decry the "nanny state", so let's give them what they want.

Which is apparently a 'Rona Thanksgiving, and a full calendar of Christmas funerals.

Sadly most people dont prepare then when it is to late they put the proper procedures in place.  Same can be said about the environment.  Climate change is ramping up but people still consuming at an unsustainable rate thinking everything will be OK.  One day when it's way to late we will wish we ditched coal and oil and walked our fat asses to the store
