None of those 250 children should be allowed back in the school.

I only remember McDonough because when I drive to Florida on I-75, there are a ton of billboards for Z&Z liquor store and in particular the ladies who work there.

I wish more parents would at least act like they had more maturity than their children. How hard is it to say "I don't know much about science, so I will defer to ... science-talking people and wear a mask."

"We sold over 300 tickets, but only about 250 kids actually showed up because they were warned by teachers and coaches that they should not attend because of the virus," Knight added. "The kids who came had fun."

"This whole virus plandemic scamdemic has totally ruined 2020. "

She continued, "Fiddle-dee-dee! Covid-covid-covid; this covid talk's spoiling all the fun at every party this year. I get so bored I could scream. Besides...there isn't going to be any covid."

Unfortunately, all too many people (primarily Americans but I'm sure they exist in other places as well) think deferring to others is a sign of weakness and would sooner die.

Literally arguing for anti-intellectualism, and in a thread about some moron ignoring medical science to hold a huge party at the height of a pandemic.

I truly hope this is the stupidest thing I read all day. It's hard to imagine what could top it.

I have a coworker, who has had some miscarriages and other problems bearing a 2nd child.  The first child is therefore overly spoiled.  Small Alabama town, most family in the area.  Set up a private Trunk or treat for the 2 year old because "it's their favorite holiday and I'm not going to disappoint them" . . . a 2 year old.

guess who's ended up with Covid?

The same people who usually scream "Jesus is our Savior and Trump is my President"
Are also typically the sister touching  cousin impregnat, ma Constitution raghts, Fack Your Feelings type.
Plus adding in all the usual conspiracy theories for good measure.

I am certain only a small handful of places in America will lock down again this winter. Not even a wave of deaths big enough to make COVID the #1 killer of Americans this calendar year would convince the Republicans running most states to close up shop.

It's farking amazing that those people think we had an actual lockdown just because bars and restaurants didn't do inside drinking/dining. Meanwhile, 65% of people still continued to go to work everyday and do exactly what they were before, another 20% transitioned to work from home.

There is a difference between these two scenarios:

"I know a lot about X. That guy has an opinion about X that disagrees with my experience. I'll ignore him."

and

"I don't know much about X. A person who studies X says it can kill people, and tells me some ways to prevent it. But I'll ignore him because I read a Facebook post by my idiot brother-in-law that disagrees."

Idiots everywhere. From a recent BBC report about Glasgow (edit down a little):

However, one parent of a girl who attends a Glasgow school told BBC Scotland she would still be hosting sleepovers at her home. "I don't see an issue now with having other kids and friends and cousins around the house. I've done it. I have had her friends from school across, I've had her cousins staying. I won't be abiding by [the law]. I will allow my daughter to have a sleepover, a friend over. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion."

Is, you don't really have to get within 6 or even 12 feet of anybody else if you don't want.

You can make a personal choice to never leave your place of shelter if you want. And that goes for anybody who fears the virus.

So genuine question.  Why is it upsetting to see people not do it?

Weakness. To admit anything is to admit weakness and to Trumpers, COVID deniers, anti-vaxxers and other mental midgets that is the most egregious sin that can be committed. That explains a huge part of the RWNJ cult... they see using the words "I don't know" as that unforgiveable weakness. Its why they love their orange god so much... he has never admitted fault, never admitted lack of knowledge, never deferred to people that he knows are more competent, and they see all of that as "strength" when it is really cowardice.

That is very unlikely to happen. The death rate amongst under 18s is too small to be statistically significant. And that, really, is the problem. 250 Typhoid Marys at just one school ...

Huh. So masks are child abuse but your brazen disregard for the health and well-being of your child in potentially exposing them ( and many others) to a possibly deadly disease ... isn't?

Because, and I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong, negligence is a form of child abuse under pretty much every penal code.
