You don't even need the last three words, subby.

Except that this is because of their asshat parents bringing them to Christmas and new years gatherings.  And now they biatch about having to keep their kids at home for online school.

You reap what you sow, and all that.

Soon as it was confirmed that the lockdown was going to happen after christmas day I knew this was going to be a shiat show thanks to selfish assholes doing self-centered and short-sighted things.

Won't be surprised to see Ford get all huffy about that and go straight for the curfew options at this point.

Yup this.  You just had to have a warm cosy "gathering" to celebrate Jesus, so now we *all* get to die for your sins.

I really, really want to give every Ford voter a socially-distanced kick to the genitals.

Starting with the mouthbreather who came to my door to babble on about fake news.

I'm so happy I live in the middle of the woods, in Nova Scotia. I can't even fathom someone coming to my door to bother me about "Fake news", good god.

Yeah, both my kids are back to "distance learning" at least for now. My oldest had to spend two weeks quarantining from Dec 15th to the 29th because a kid in one of his classes decided to show up at school with a full blown case of COVID.

/We should really start quarantining stupid people.

None of this is on the kids. The kids are the ones best at following guidelines. They're not the ones breaking the rules. It's on the parents and grandparents who get lonely and figure "just once is fine".  I get it, holidays are hard even in normal years, but people need to treat this like a force of nature, not something that can be reasoned with.

No, stupid people should, in a perfect world avoided before birth... Would be great if we could prevent idiots from breeding. Just need to do it worldwide to be effective.

You know to the people who created Population Control Theory, "Stupid" was/is synonymous with "Poor", right? Like, don't advocate for farking eugenics because systems fail to educate and take care of their people.

"Stupid people shouldn't breed". Is that the solution? I'm pretty stupid, and I shouldn't breed? My dad is completely stupid and my mother is half a farkin idiot and I am tired of this hate being thrown at my people.

You want to get rid of the stupid people that's fine, we won't breed, there will be none of us left. All of the fast-food will be self-served other than that you will get back ok. But let me ask you something, who's next? Where does it end? Assholes? They will come after them next. 'Yea, now that we got rid of all the stupid people I noticed Larry is kind of an asshole.' They will get rid of them. I bet you have a few friends that are assholes. Pretty close to them too, they are gone. Then the dickheads. Hey, all of the heads, fark it. shiat heads, dick heads, fark heads put them all in a bus and send them all to farkheadville. Then are you going to be happy? Is it going to be Utopia now?

'I don't really agree with what they did to the dickheads, but now us sacks-of-shiat will live in peace' Not for long girly. Then who, the cock-suckers? You want to get rid of all the cock-suckers? Then who is going to suck all the cock? You think the douchebags will do it? No, you ever get your cock sucked by a douchebag? It's like a chore to them. Is that the way you want to live?

My great great grandmother was a coont in the late 1800s. Long before it was popular to be a coont. Just to show her face at the Market she had to pretend to she was just surly. Is that the way you want to live again? I don't think so. I say end the hate."

Remember folks, everything is on the table and Dougie Ford won't hesitate to hesitate further and blame some yahoos, slash environmental protections to protect his developer buddies, enact legislation to protect private LTCs from litigation, weep about how his heart breaks for small businesses and turn things over to his private schooled Minister of Education and his home schooled parliamentary assistant.

At this point, I wonder if Rob's rotting carcass would do a better job at managing this than Doug.  Addition by subtraction.

Let me guess.....

Ontario, home to the FACK YOU, GOT MINE, I'M THE LITERAL CENTRE OF THE UNIVERSE SO RULES DON'T APPLY TO ME citiots of the GTHA.?

Yup, figures.

There are idiots screaming to open up the ski hills.  Like that would be a good idea.
1000s of heavily breathing citiots standing 6 inches away from eachother then sitting on a unsanitary chairlift with only allowing 20 or so people in the chalets at any given time...
Oh yeah, great idea..  just watch out you don't ski on the yellow or brown snow.
Then they wonder why numbers are spiking.

I, too, want to hear more about them sanding 6 inches away from each other and breathing heavily on each other.

Ski hills are open here.  It's not the greatest idea, however, everyone is wearing gore-tex head to toe, as well as masks, eye protection and gloves.  You are only allowed onto a chair with people you came with. It makes for long lines, but as mass outdoor activities go, it's about as safe as you're going to get.

There were countless people that explained that having kids in school was safe.  This was not in August, this was in November/December.

Explained

is a pretty generous term for that take.  I'd go more with made it up and attempted to validate it with factless homeopaths and conservative politicians' takes.

"Scientific consensus around the world is that it is fine to open schools except when there is a particularly severe surge in the surrounding community"

"All the studies point to elementary schools and middle schools as no risk to the population.  High schools maybe.  And colleges are a big F off."

"How much evidence do some of you need to see before you will calm down about the schools being open?  Schools don't seem to be a contributor to any Covid spread.  Especially elementary schools. "

"Scientific evidence from around the world says that schools don't spread COVID-19. What do you have that's better than scientific evidence? Hydroxychloroquine? "

Those are all from one (short) Fark thread from end of Nov/beg of Dec.  Only one of those quoted (names not included to not break Fark rules) is at all on the right side of the aisle.

great fearmongering.

120% without any other number sounds pretty scary.  How farking many students are we talking about?  it went from 5 to 6?

Yes, although lots of them were making all kinds of claims, using R0 (as if R0 has anything to do with the discussion), and stuff like that. They were not using herbalists and homeopaths. They were the usual crowd who police threads using their Science! training.

Anyhow: you put kids in a room together during a pandemic, you train the virus to infect kids. It's so dangerous that I don't know how to deal with the people who want schools open.

Not surprised the shutdown got extended, not surprised numbers are spiking after Xmas break. Biggest frustration is farking Lecce promising everyone we'd be back on schedule least week. As if that was a promise he could ever hope to keep.

Damn, I didn't know the death rate and population with covid went up to 100%. Am I going to die too even though I got the vaccine?
