In almost every movie involving some sort of virus or pandemic the military is always painted as the bad guys for shooting "innocent" civilians defying quarantine or trying to escape. I'm not saying civilians should be shot but I completely understand why the writers of those movies wrote people that way. If something more deadly and contagious ever hits American shores we're quite literally farked.

the county was cited in the resolution as due to the 98% survival rate of COVID-19,

It's not about survival rates you fuc|< wads.  It's about limiting infectivity as COVID causes severe disability in survivors.

Disability in some cases is worse than death.

The movie Contagion has an expert on pandemics as an advisor. She said the biggest thing they got wrong was that they didn't expect the President to actually help the spread of the virus.

Not just denying public health officials but actually patting himself on the back for having the courage of the child in the fairy tale who declared that the Emperor had no clothes?

Christ, what an asshole.

Sir, listen to me. You were struck in the head in November of 2019. This may come as a bit of a shock but you have been in a medically induced coma it is now April of 2021.

I live near Denver. The people in Southern Colorado are mostly religious kooks so this is not surprising. Although it's probably safe to say that in every state, once you get outside of the metropolitan areas, i.e. the rural areas, most of the people are kooks. And I'm saying that as someone who grew up in a fairly rural area in upstate NY, across the road from a cow pasture, awakened by cow bells and mooing every morning.

One month later, "Hospitals are at capacity in Douglas County. Health officials are concerned about the increased cases of Corona virus."

Yep. Almost all of American society is like that now. It's going to destroy this country.

It's south of Denver, so I thought it counted.

Castle Rock isn't exactly Southern Colorado.

That's where my in-laws live. I had to ban them from my property because they refused to follow social distancing guidelines. White exceptionalism folks. They still won't talk to me or my wife.

This is one of the more striking contrasts between the US and Canada.  We see the same thing but to a much, much less extent.  I grew up in New Brunswick which is majority rural.  PEI is essentially all rural.  Yet most people are reasonably well informed, and certainly more progressive tha American rural populations.  It's odd.

I live in the next county north, Arapahoe, and Douglas County has been biatching about the Tri-Country Health pretty much from the get-go. They've been wanting to be left out of just about every effective measure the health department has imposed. They've been saying the emperor has no clothes since March of 2020, and now they are going to act brand new like they recognized this pandemic was serious at once point, but it's not now.

She was sad, but we care more about our daughter's health than we do about people who refuse to follow national guidelines during a global pandemic that's already killed almost 3 million people worldwide.

Farking Castle Rock. They just want their Outlet Stores open again. It's the only thing the town has going for it.

it's not "odd." It's the entirely predictable result of feeding vasts swaths of the US population nothing but Fox News "infortainment."

I would like to point out that the general public in Colorado has only been eligible to receive vaccine since 4/5.  To call this short-sighted would be an understatement.

Is this like how hipsters declare something to be over? So than what's the next viral trend?

Avocado toast is officially over since you can now get it at Dunkin Donuts.  So what we need is for Dunkin to add COVID Smoothies to their menu and suddenly the pandemic will be passé.  Some hipsters will be nostalgic for it in about 8 months and there will be a mini-spike, but that's mostly among hipsters so who cares.

Douglas is the county next door to mine... it's Boomerville central, very white, pretty wealthy, and I'm sure the wealthy ones all got their vaccines already, and don't give a fark about anyone but themselves, because, as mentioned, affluent Boomers.

Hey look, we're on the news again.

Castle Rock.

You may remember us from last year when the breakfast spot decided to defiantly cram as many ppl inside it as possible during "flatten the curve"

fark these white-bred boomers. They may have 2 million dollar houses, but it's allll trailerpark between their ears.
