Pandemic Saturday

In case you hadn't noticed, things are still getting worse - not better.  Seems the Covid deniers are getting worse as well.  Here is a Facebook quote today from one of the employees of The Little Burro Country Store where masks are still optional in direct contradiction of the state and county mandates..."It is as simple as this: IF YOU ARE THAT F*CKING SCARED STAY HOME. Leave the rest of us the F*ck Alone.  Thank you - K".

Obviously the folks at Little Burrow Company are F*king stupid.

Get um John but you can't fix stupid. The store is nice to have but my health is more important. Thank God the Cottonwood is compliant because I will no longer patronize the little burro although I really liked supporting Pam.

After several failed attempts reaching out to the owners and management of The Little Burro Store...I have resorted to contacting local law enforcement, the media, and several Texas government agencies. These folks are a danger to themselves and the entire community and need to be dealt with or shut down entirely. It was nice to have a local store, but locals got by just fine for many years before they opened.

Their philosophy was we are here to help the community but their total disregard for the health of their patrons leads me to believe they are more concerned about their conspiracy theories than the the welfare of the community. I read there was a $250.00 fine for not following the county resolution. Has law enforcement responded? Get um John.

Why did politicians ever lockdown society in the first place? Can we all agree that the stated purpose was to “flatten the curve” so our hospital system could handle the inevitable COVID-19 patients who needed care?

At that point, at least, back in early March, people were behaving rationally.

They accepted you can’t eradicate a virus, so let’s postpone things enough to handle it.
The fact is, we have done that, and so much more.

The headlines are filled with dire warnings of a “second wave” and trigger-happy Governors are rolling back regulations to try to stem the tide of new cases.

But, is any of it actually true and should we all be worried? No, it’s not a second wave.

The COVID-19 virus is on its final legs, and while I have filled this post with graphs to prove everything I just said, this is really the only graph you need to see, it’s the CDC’s data, over time, of deaths from COVID-19 here in the U.S., the trend line unmistakable:

If virologists were driving policy about COVID-19 rather than public health officials, we’d all be Sweden right now, which means life would effectively be back to normal.

The only thing our lockdowns have done at this point is prolong the agony a little bit, and encouraged Governors to make up more useless rules. They are ALL STUPID CRAZY!

Oh dear god! John has elected himself the Judge, jury, etc. ' I called the cops on you'! " Your going to be in trouble! I told on you!!!

Where is the mellow guy from semi upstate NY? Live and let live!

You've turned into a preaching flaming liberal!!

I fully expect that you will band me from posting, and I really don't care. I have followed you on this site for 6 or 7 years, from the beginning of you building your house.

I just can't understand how you have become such a lefty.

Yes Trump is a self absorbed asshole, BUT he has put a team of people that have done wonders for the economy before the crazy shutdowns.

Why was the purpose of the shutdowns, to help the hospitals be able to handle the cases.

NOT STOP THE CHANCE OF PEOPLE getting it, just to slow it down.

But, from your writings , john, you are to far gone down the crazy left, sad to see.

No point following you anymore. Hope you can get some help dealing with your problems.
