Agree. It should be hospitalizations.

However, it is better than nothing. Low bar I know.  

No, no it's not.

Cases is a stupid metric because it's a lot easier to manipulate with testing. If you're gonna base it on something it should be hospitalizations. 

You would think they would figure this out after a year...

I get what you're saying.  I don't know your beliefs, but I can see that if they aren't widely held, it's a way to connect with others.  I've done the same thing.  It just gets old letting every jackass walking the planet have a platform to spew out opinions of things they know nothing about.  I realize SM is here to stay.

I think social media has done more harm than good for our entire society.  


Edit: Yes, I know good also came out of social media.

Our partisan culture would never accept it.  We have to be on the winning side, the right side.  But that is not good enough.  We must vilify the losing side, the wrong side.  We won't allow courteous mask wearing to be the acceptable normal.  If someone goes out wearing a mask (when mandates are removed), you might as well put a scarlet "A" on their chest.  "UNCLEAN! UNCLEAN!"


This is why also earlier in this thread I said I believe the sanctimonious mask crowd (like S&L and other posters here) might be more obnoxious than the anti everything/denial crowd.

I 100% agree with that. If you're sick, stay home. If you have to be out, wear a mask. As long as it's voluntary I have no issues. But if they expect businesses to limit capacity every winter then they can piss right off. Without that, I'm not sure how they can get their precious social distancing. After the year we just had, though, my hackles are raised every time someone says something like this.

I agree with this. I don't care if others wear masks. But, at least in my pea brain, the "social distancing" piece of that necessitates business capacity restrictions. Which CANNOT happen.

You're right, I am probably giving him too much of the benefit of the doubt.   My interpretation was simply a "if you're sick, try to be fucking courtesy."   I.e. if you're sick, then either don't show up to the office or work from home.  Or if you're in a supervisory level, how about not pressuring sick employees to come into the office?

No.

This doesn't bug me, as long as it is your own personal decision.   I believe I said it in this thread when this shit all started, but I have always appreciated how asian cultures mask up as a courtesy when they feel sick.

Saw on the news this morning that March 3, 2020 was the first time DeWine made any restrictions with eliminating spectators from the upcoming Arnold Classic. I remember that following weekend was when universities starting suspending classes. Man, we had no idea what we were in for...

I worked Cincy beerfest on what would be this upcoming weekend last year. LOTS of chatter amongst the attendees about covid and how the event would give it to everyone if anyone there had it. 

It's time to end this shit, it's been long enough. The curve has been flattened. The spread has been slowed. We have a year worth of empirical data. Ohio needs to open fully, no restrictions. At this point, if you're still worried about catching it, you can adjust your life to reduce your risk. It's not my job anymore.

Fair. Very fair. I know I'm a little concerned about the talk of domestic terror bill something like the Patriot act. 

Well, for a year democrats in DC told the public to go out and get in people's faces, to chase them down, surround them and "make them uncomfortable". They said that antifa was imaginary, people were rioting for bread and that it was their 1st amendment right to express how they felt about their oppression. 
In return there was billions of dollars of damage and 30+ people dead.

So when some right wing idiots took them up on it and made democrats in DC uncomfortable - they all shit their pants. 

Now those same democrats in DC are calling for republicans to be doxxed, turned in, lose their jobs, calling on Apple and Google to censore them from all medias and prison time. They're making the call for republicans in general to be labeled as extremists in order to be targeted. 

There is no nuance at play here. It's the very worst kind of ideological hypocrisy and it's appalling. 

And you're just "a little concerned", Ptown?

I know, I know. There is probably some nuance that I am missing there.

Guise it’s not neoconservatism when dementia Joe does it. You should educate yourselves and realize it’s democratic neoconservatism.

Proves my nuance point. To think the HHS facilities are the same as the ICE ones is just a gross overgeneralization. 

You know it is possible to think that the HHS facilities are fine in the temporary sense while the ICE facilities are bad? It is also possible to think that some of the immigration protests were legit, while others are a stretch. Again, nuance....

I'll give you credit.  You spun this slightly less shitty than Paski did.  Not bad.

I am shocked to see moderate posters such as ptown, gblock, fab etc., have not come on here yet to condemn Biden's treatment of children at the borders.
