Re: Covid, and you.
Like everybody, sick of the damn thing. That's why the second wave is always hardest. Everybody starts to slack off, people with masks but they're hanging under their chin, hand washing 1/3 as much as used to, social distancing when everybody is out now because they've been couped up for 3 months? Impossible most anywhere. The country has to open or half the country will be homeless, but another 500,000 American will die before this is over.
They keep talking about the vaccine yet, there has never been a vaccine created for a SARS or Corona virus. And they're going to do this in a year? And pass one that may be 12% effective just to get something out there. Like the reports they're not as concerned about catching it off surfaces but are more concerned with airborne. IMO that's a ploy to get people to go out and spend money instead of just give it to Amazon for everything. Just wear your mask and social distance, don't worry about wiping everything down with sanitizer when you get it home.
This is all just a dry run for the big one, when one of the known 1.6 million viruses in the wild, many of which would kill 70-80% of those infected, and when the one gets lose that spreads like 19, we may help solve global warming because we'd reduce emissions by 80%. Silver lining?
This country has had social problems since it became a country. Every country has their own, some of them no better at solving theirs than we are at solving ours. Blue, black, they should have changed the name of the street to ALL LIVES MATTER. But I'm not the mayor feuding with an administration that'll tear gas and beat you to hold a bible upside down.
And I don't know how many times I've heard from southerns about how they're going out for a steak dinner tonight and to the bar, not like us pu*** blue state creatons that are trying to keep the country closed to hurt an election? Or maybe they're just trying to follow official guidelines set by the CDC and not kill as many as possible, while still trying to get things running again. While the cases spike exactly where you expect.
Look, there is no vaccine coming anytime soon. There is no money to pay for everybody to sit on the couch and watch TV for months, of course they just print more but, that's half the problem. Bottom line is the country is going to open, it'l be a new norm with some of the population following protocols and the rest rebelling against them because it's their damn freedom that allows them to walk around without a mask and spread whatever they caught last week. Many more will die. Many many more will carry the scars of it for a lifetime. The lucky will get a cold.
Heard about the 20 year old girl who's lungs were so scarred they did a double lung transplant to save her? Nah, the young don't have to worry, and they act like it.
