A bit too late. Horse is already out of the barn and I expect more EO's as the cases multiply. Our governor delayed the opening of health clubs and gyms until further notice.

Looking back I called her a draconian basturd but looking at it, I'd say she was right on now.

People are so stupid it amazes me that they can actually breathe.

No problem here. I got married 30 years ago and haven't been to a bar since then.

Opening bars was the biggest mistake ever.

Did they really think drunks would social distance and behave responsibly after a few drinks?

LOL!

As if alcohol itself didn't already eliminate enough fools from the gene pool...
Of course the tragedy is the innocent people they so often take with them.

Back on another self-righteous "I know what's best for YOU" crusade?

Are you you seriously going to start an argument and say that drunk drivers killing innocent people isn't a tragedy, just because I said it is? Seriously?
Or are you going to try to make some kind of nonsense argument that drunk people don't do stupid things that get them killed?
WHAT is wrong with you? Are you THAT butthurt that you can't let it go even when the mods start locking threads? You gotta drag it into other threads and start it up again? Really?
GET OVER IT! You're really making a fool of yourself.

GET OVER IT!
ME get over it! You've written at least 100 words to every one of mine! Go back & count 'em! Might that be a measure of your own butt-hurtedness?

Anyway, that you would exploit the "social-distancing" problem inherent in congregating in bars (which is the REAL problem) to deliver a lecture on "the evils of alcohol" demonstrates again that you just CAN'T stop telling others how to run their lives.

ME get over it! You've written about 100 words to every one of mine! Might that be a measure of your own butt-hurtedness?

Dude, I am a good and fast typist, so out-writing you 100 words to one isn't really much of a challenge, much less a "measure" of anything I'm feeling.

Look, if you want to go spend time cheek by jowl with all the drunks in the local bar - virus or not - you just go right ahead buddy. More power to ya'. As long as you don't drink and drive and take out other innocent people with you I couldn't care less what you do to your liver. Really.

Just stop turning every thread into a brawl, OK? I wasn't talking to you or about you, so stop taking every thing I say as something directed at you or your choices personally, and then responding by making it into something personal by attacking me.

Like I said GET OVER IT. Everything I type isn't about you. You're starting to bore me.

Not enough, evidently, to inhibit your l-o-n-g & tiresome responses.

By the way, I've never heard anyone over the age of about 30 whose vocabulary includes "dude," at least in my part of the country. But then, I profess no knowledge of West Coast lingo.

Well let's just say that dude ISN'T a term of endearment and leave it at that, shall we?
It is unfortunate that reading a couple of paragraphs taxes your energy or attention span or whatever. Unfortunate, not surprising, just kinda sad. :(
Ever heard of Evelyn Wood? Maybe she can help.
In the meantime I'll try to keep it short and use small words when responding to you.

By no means, Dude--would distress me to cramp your prating verbosity! Let your torrents of self-righteousness flow on like the mighty Mississippi!

Just can't please some people I guess. Make your posts too long and they find them "tiresome", offer to keep them short and they get "distressed". Just no pacifying your type, once you get your undies in a bunch, is there?
Good night. I have to get up and go to work in the morning, so I'm going to bed.

According to many people, Becky and I should have been dead and buried last month. We don't do masks or social distancing. We don't go to bars anyway so it's not an issue.
Closing down bars while encouraging protests has got to be the stupidest thing I have seen in a long time. Closing gyms and having Walmart open is on the same level. Kid Rock was fined for having too many people in his establishment while it was curb to curb people just outside the front door. Stupidity in the name of "freedom? Lets all celebrate the freedoms of America on the 4th of July by cowering in our homes. The democratic socialists' are winning. There is an excuse Sunshine Patriots can use and I'll help you out with.

I hear ya azmick.

According to a recently released Washington University study, Tennesseans are among the least likely to wear masks in public, approximately 15%. Tennessee lockdown was late and rather weak, and was short-lived compared to many states. We have a population of 7 million with large population centers. So far, Tennessee has reported a total 600 COVID-related deaths.

Now compare this to other states, say Michigan. They have a similar population at 10 million with population centers that are no larger than here. They went into lockdown with gusto and prolonged. Mask mandates were instituted in April. Yet, Michigan is the equivalent of a COVID death camp with over 10 times the number of deaths (8 times per population) compared to Tennessee. Just the last seven days Michigan experienced 50% more COVID related-deaths than Tennessee. Just yesterday Michigan death toll went up by another 32. Total around 6,000.

When ya hear the chattering class cling to government policy as the guiding light... well... uh... maybe, just maybe, personal choices have greater impact than some might think, and not everything is determined by an EO on a governor's desk or the latest bs from Fauci and crew.

My opinion is the virus is going to spread, period. For those alarmed at the high number of young, healthy, low-risk non-symptomatic folks testing positive, I would ask them how else do you achieve herd immunity?

Same here for the wife and I. We did not wear a mask until our Guv mandated it and we still don't do social distancing. The closes we get to bars is when we go out to diner at the sports bar (the blue and the gray restuarant.)

I've had to work each day as normal except for 10 days to get a virus test. Since this has started I have listened to end time predictions, ridicule of people for being careful and have listened to all kinds of theories about the chances of getting the disease with all kinds of variables thrown in the mix. I could laugh at such ridiculous horse___t when it is used in arguing the merits of a diet or systemic cleanse, but listening to all the dire warnings and the blame laid on people who was mainly just unfortunate enough to be in a position of power when this s__t hit the fan, has just worn me out. Admonish me for not doing all the things that may or may not keep me and you safe or not and now you are going to just get push back. I know for d__n sure I ain't the only one that feels that way right now.

When this first hit, we did the masks, gloves, clorox wipes on all packages, and on and on; now, unless the mask is mandatory, nope.....
