That's because our test centers are operated by the New Mexico National Guard.

I guess it's nice to hear that this isn't just an American problem.  Sociologist, anthropologist and psychologists will be studying this era for a hundred years.  It's sad but strangely fascinating how this pandemic had sorted people in our "modern" western societies.

The country's government enforced a curfew from 9:00 p.m. until 4:30 a.m. to reduce the spread of the virus amid fears of the new U.K. variant.

In retrospect they should be taking into consideration the ever-increasing risk of mass unrest when deciding whether trying to impose any specific measure will have a positive impact on public health.

It's a criminal action says the Dutch news.  Almost 200 arrests in Amsterdam, about half that in Eindhoven.

Back in the old days there were riots of outrage when the sun went down each day, until we sacrificed a conservative at dusk.  The riots slowed and then stopped.  The sun would come up in the morning and go down at night, regardless of the riots.

were they tired of hearing covid numbers from a test that is 99.7% inaccurate?

Throughout the world, many nation states are fighting the war on Covid like they are fighting the war on drugs.  They aren't focusing the force of the state toward treating those who fall ill as victims of a sickness.  Rather, they are focusing the power of the state towards police action, cracking down on those who engage in the "risky" act of treating their bodies as their own and regarding those who fall ill as perpetrators of an immoral act deserving punishment.

For authoritarian societies, the kind where drug dealers are executed, cracking down on people who violate Covid restrictions can be socially acceptable. Holland, on the other hand, is amongst the most permissive in the world. The idea of "my body my choice", and the right to be left alone are taken quite seriously. Those who are used to enjoying civil liberties don't much enjoy having those freedoms taken in away.

And the thing that absolutely drives me bonkers is that its really not so Farking hard. I do get that it a huge change to our lives but damn.  Sure, I have friends that I don't see as much as I like, and me and the wife used to really enjoy a night out now and then, but jezus tap dancing Christ, this isn't that Farking hard! Most of the people pitching a fit, have every Farking movie and tv show to watch,  video games to play and all the other crap on the internet to pass our time.  Granted I'm a good cook, and like to smoke the weeds, but seriously,  this just isn't a big ask.  This country needs a three week national lockdown.I really hope Biden says fark it and just shuts it down . Of course the toddlers will have a tantrum but I think history will thank him.

And I get the how this is Farking already farked communities but it seems like the the privileged coonts are the one farking this up.

I don't think it's the bit where a person wants to get themselves infected that anyone minds, it's the bit where they want to go swanning about and giving it to everyone else that's the issue. People are welcome to get a covid-19 infection, stay home and isolated until they get better or die, all they want.

Rather like you can smoke cigarettes if you want, but you cannot smoke at work these days because the people in cubicles around you did not consent to breathing in your personal drug of choice. Since you cannot contain your smoke you cannot do it around others when they also have to share that space. Covid-19 infections cannot be contained either.

Civil liberties does not mean you get to do anything at all you want, they end when they begin to infringe on the rights of others, otherwise there is nothing civil about them.

It's even more mind blowing if you have an English or European background and can recall stories from parents or perhaps grandparents about the deprivations they endured during the war.

But omg people today are being asked to stay at home on the couch! The horror!

And they can't even farking do it.

At this point maybe we should just have snipers shoot anyone who steps outside. We'd only have to do the first few.

Are you like four years old? Do  you just not give a damn about anyone but your own precious little ass? Did your mommy say you were special? Do you simply not understand what a pandemic is?

Basically the options are you are as selfish as is possible or as stupid as possible, or both.


I see we're already at the "Why cant you go a year without seeing friends and family, you selfish piece of shiat" part of the argument. You're not helping.
