We still go out, but we are selective. The park, Goodwill, not buffet style restaurants. Not that we've eaten out aside from take out in years. Too many digestive issues.

The simple fact is, it doesnt work! Half of our school is in quarantine at the moment. All the kids are wearing masks, plexi dividers, no classes are mixing yet two teachers so far are out. The only way to get out of this, is to hole up in your house, and to me, thats not an option Im willing to entertain, those who want to stay at home should have no problem doing so. This is state control, and becoming more heavy-handed every day. Nevermind the virus, were being drained of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Again, give me liberty or give me death.

Nobody really expects their seatbelt to help them if they don't latch it over themselves and instead latch it behind themselves.
But we expect masks to work when we don't wear them right. If everyone wearing them with their nose sticking out put it on properly you'd have different results.

Regarding schools, of course it's spreading in schools. What 6 year old have you ever met that didn't wipe their nose on their hand. And lunchtime is obvious. Can't wear masks and eat.

I don't assume I have all the answers. In fact I know I don't. I'm just trying to keep my wife safe, same reason I keep a shotgun at the lab.
No I'm not kidding. She comes to work when she feels too bad to be alone and may need assistance. We have an area separated and set up for her comfort.

No mask here either Riley. I just sent my kid back to school to her kindergarten teacher that had it like 8 days ago. Its a brave new world, so why not be brave? Id rather be dead than culled. I also know people with autoimmune disorders that havent left their house in 8 months.. so are we talking about preserving life or quality of life?
It is scary. Your kid is faced with a 99.99997% risk of living if they contract the virus. and if he/she does survive they could pass that on to someone more susceptible to it and then they also risk the 99% chance of living.
My kids have come home and asked me why they have PE without masks while they play basketball and football and breath hard on each other then have to be so separated in class with masks on and their teacher behind a plexi wall and why they have to all sit on one side of the lunch tables (shoulder to shoulder) until the plexi glass gets installed down the middle of the table for them to sit on both sides. I say, "...because....?"

I get it too. It is non-sensical. It is arbitrary. No masks needed if marching for Breonna, but can't sing in church.

I don't expect sanity from my governments, it's made imperfect people. Whether you're in a red or blue state, they are imperfect and advancing their agenda, not yours.

You know why ophthalmologists are not allowed to change out the fluid in your eyes to get rid of floaters? 1% chance of blindness.

Not death, blindness. Does anyone suggest that's too radical a metric? Not that I ever heard.

I'm happy to agree to disagree. Y'all have a good day.

If this virus can wipe out globalism then the sacrifice will be worth it. Buy local , wear your mask , and wash your hands when you touch yourself.

Good to know I am not the only "stupid" because trying to ask questions if something doesn't make sense to me...
I do believe we are being lied to about numbers, and I hate to watch the news... nothing else but fear... and like it or not pushed down on us. Sad to see that people don't even try to use their brain and think or question whatever they see on tv or hear on the radio, never mind doing a research...
I also find it sad that grown up, "educated, smart" people had to be instructed to wash their hands, and how to do it... because they just simply didn't do it, some of them still don't...
Some people laugh when I say that if you sneeze or cough in my face I might slap you, without the corona virus. But people needed to be educated about this too, " Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze "
But I like to see things being cleaned, like in stores. I think it should be done without a pandemic (unfortunately some people are very disgusting)
Since this whole thing started I haven't seen anything in the news or anywhere in the media about how to get healthy, or how to strengthen your immune system, but if we don't fear and stay home we will all die. Nothing about what drs figured out about the virus since the beginning of the year, or what treatment they are trying, or using successfully around the world (even simple vitamin C). But we need a vaccine...
Or how about the statistics in the hard hit countries, that most of those people had at least 2, or more other health issues, or what their age was...
We should protect the vulnerable, but telling kids they can kill their grandparents... how is that good??? Or for who???
Last night it was in the news, that in Ontario we had almost 800 new cases, like we had it in April I think... yeah, and they tested over 48 000 people. While back in April they tested around 12 000 people... but we are all going to die, our numbers are up... sure same number of positive cases, and 4 times more tested... no, we don't need to think...
Some people go get tested because they have to get it for their work, they have no symptoms at all, and they just figure they are positive...
And never mind the other people who are also the victims of the virus, because they are actually sick but cannot get treatments because of the pandemic... and they are all forgotten nowadays. We don't fight cancer or heart problems, or anything... they all disappeared because of the corona virus.
Sorry guys, hope you don't mind...

Back in april I think, my son crashed on his bike. I could tell his collar bone was broken but he was super tough about it. We were worried about taking him to the hospital because of the doom and gloom being fresh and really making everyone worried. But we called ahead and were told that they wouldn't be seeing anyone unless it was severely life threatening! Turned away by a hospital and then a private doctor office!! So i called my dad, a 16 year ski patrolman, and my bro in law, the fire/paramedic captain at his station, and they came to look him over and make a sling. Two weeks later when we had to take my daughter (and they let us) they felt bad about my boy and did an xray to check things. it was broken but healing well.
Add global climate warming change to things that disappeared as well. That only comes when people blame things on trump now. Just awhile ago that was going to kill us off in a matter of years. Actually I think things were supposed to be in complete catastrophe back in 2015. Oh well.

My sister-in-law works in a hospital... actually she would be the one seeing your son :) she told me before if it is not life threatening, they have to refuse to operate or anything on the patient... So I asked ok, if I break my arm and I need surgery, then what? She said no... they will try to put it together, but that's it... and What if it doesn't heal properly? Well, then we can break it again... But what if you break it again and even if I get that surgery later I won't be able to use my arm 100% like before? and she said unfortunately that can happen... but it's the pandemic...
It was not up to her, or the dr...
Thanks!

That sounds awful. My wife actually broke her arm this summer and we had no problems getting into a hospital. They had her put a mask on but no test.. Im not sure what Id do if they refused to treat her..

The local hospital was built to have multiple negative pressure areas from a single room to an entire floor per wing. The er only lets in the pt until pt is assigned an er room then they can have 1 person. Person leaves, they don't come back in unless the pt is getting admitted. If the pt is a minor, they can have 2 and they can 'spell' each other.

It's infuritaing. And that's putting it mildly.


and just for fun, the last time I had the flu I got it from being a pt in the hospital for severe diverticulitis. When you're there for days and get sick within a couple hours of being home it'a not hard to figure out where it came from.
So.... I don't exactly implicitly trust anyone with my or her health.
