I've posted this before.  DeWine has had a long career, he's held virtually every elected office you can have in Ohio from the state house up.  He has no farks left to give.
 
2020-11-23 7:30:26 PM  
Most right wingers in Ohio are Trump cultist types, they don't take kindly to DeWine trying to save lives in a state where the right wing 'rona is exploding beyond control. They want unfettered death and misery and that's what they're getting because DeWine lost his spine months ago. It's a shame as this state was actually doing better than most as of a few months ago.

The right wing death cult: literally trying to kill you and your whole family now, in the most literal sense.

Get it over with already. Get your faces in the dirt, your asses in the air, and that glorious white flag waving in the sky. The only Confederate flag that ever mattered. Let's see it again.

Good enough that I'm annoyed I didn't come up with it myself.  So obvious in retrospect!  Damn you, subby!

Confession: I live in Ohio. Anyway, I was at a machine shop this afternoon and overheard a discussion among 4 people complaining about DeWine. About how awful he was. How his 10 person limit *recommendation* was the worst infringement on their rights that they could image. All 4 of them were celebrating about how they were having waaaaay more than the 10 person recommendation at their upcoming Thanksgiving dinner.

The absolute icing on the cake- 2 of them had the 'Rona in September.

I would like to join in congratulating Subby on a job well done.

I continue to try to understand the derp mentality of right wingers and their YOU'RE INFRINGING ON OUR RIGHTS TO CATCH COVID AND DIE!

I know my effort will always be fruitless, but it won't stop me from being incredulous at whatever they think.

I don't get it. I'll never get it. Since they're so willing to die, I don't see why we dont just put these covidiots up against the wall and shoot them. Sure would save a ton of lives and medical costs, while also helping to stem the strain on the healthcare system.

I doubt the sentiment will hold, but the Free Republic denizens are running about 70/30 in favor of never voting for Republicans again after their "betrayal" of The Leader.

Dewine has been a paper tiger regarding pandemic response.   He started strong but then weakened, likely because of fellow Republican pressure.   He left Dr. Acton hang out to dry.

Ohio is full of serious derp outside of major metro areas.   I had an encounter with some Q Anon assholes who tried to make a scene at a Sheetz Sunday morning.    The whole even would have been comical if those assholes weren't so serious about their conspiracies.

I am hopeful for a retreat electorally just for this reason. A lot of these folks are real Trump lovers and otherwise don't care. This election had very high turnout and I think the motivation is going to be somewhat easier to cultivate for Dems in 2022.

Let's check back in with the state of Ohio in the middle of January and see how they feel then.

The best way to appeal to trumpers is to tell them to go fark themselves.

Sticking it to the Libs is more important than Life Itself.

The top members of your party are a guy who sued a cow, an idiot who made fun of Covid by wearing a gas mask to the congressional floor, a loudmouth who refused to help students who were suffering sexual assaults, a man whose face needs to be punched and kowtowed to man who mistreated his wife, and a closet case who has lost all reasoning ability.  Time to give up.

Those are my relatives you're talking about!  And you're being too kind.  Mine are having a maskless Thanksgiving blowout to stick it to the libs and enjoy their new Parler accounts with posts like:  Masks don't work!  The COVID numbers are all fake!  Democrats stole the election from Trump!

Pants full of macaroni!!: It's not so much that as it is YOU'RE INFRINGING ON OUR RIGHTS TO GIVE YOU COVID AND MAKE YOU DIE!


This is actually troubling because they are asserting that their rights are more important than the rights of others.  Rights don't work unless they are equal (and, yes, you can get into 3/5 rules and women of chattel but that is why those are wrong).

Rights are not suicide pacts and they are licenses to hurt other people and steal their right to live.  This is very simple.  However most people will laugh when you say that "the right to swing your fist ends at my nose".

If the idiots don't want to be safe, they can not be safe - so long as the clearly display a sign showing that they're not being safe.  A red star on all their clothes maybe?   That way people who do want to be safe can avoid them.  Maybe put them in their own section of city or town with their own stores and services, with a wall around the area so they can't infect others who choose to be safe.

If they change their mind, they can quarantine for 3 weeks and then remove the red star and rejoin civilized society.

Grew up in Ohio in what was a Blue union labor area that slowly went Red. But when I left, we were still a pretty Purple state.

Came to the Columbus area in '05 to be closer to family. A couple weeks in, I'm at a kids soccer game in the outer burbs and I overheard this gem proclaimed by another parent :

"Well, the reason we eat meat, and there are animals that eat meat, is when the Ark landed after the flood, there were only animals, because the flood killed all the plants."

Immediately thought, "fark me, what did I do?"

/ Yet I'm still here.
// By the time the kids grew up I had a really good job.
/// Also since I am an old fark, the real estate hit from moving back to the west coast is way too big.

Part of it is the fact that this country has flatly refused to pay people to stay home, so our options have been flattened into the false dichotomy of "stay home and starve" and "go work and keep the economy alive."

On top of that, the idiots went from "It's a hoax" to "It's not that big of a deal" to the horrifyingly nihilistic "Well, it's hopeless to do anything now, it'll get who it gets."

If masks primarily protected the wearer, they'd be worn by nearly everyone. Asking Americans to do anything to help someone else, though? GTFOH.

I have to admit I'm interested in seeing how many old school Republicans get booted out by the Republican base in favor of Trump Republicans. It's a crazy situation when regular Republicans aren't extremist enough to satisfy right wingers.
