  1. We’re all in this together …. except companies that are exempt from the rules 🙄

  2. Used to respect this guy no more. He’s no better than JT and his libranos

    • @s h go ask your friends, go ask their friends, ask anybody you can if they know somebody that DIED from covid. Then ask them to prove it. You’ll be surprised with your results I’m sure of it.

    • @Rangus I don’t think he does, but I think he has been threatened and/or enticed to do this because this is a 180 degree turn for him.

    • Neechi Psycho I have yet to run into ANYONE who even got it??? Of course you hear about a “friend of a friends uncles brothers cousin” contracting it, but that’s it.

      @s h COVID restrictions were originally sold as desperate measures for a couple of weeks to “flatten the curve” so that hospitals wouldn’t be overwhelmed. The goal posts have been moved so far in the distance that you can’t see them anymore.

    So it’s safe to have large gatherings as long as it’s costing me money and I’m supporting a business?

    This pandemic is an introvert’s dream come true and an extrovert’s worst nightmare. That is all I have to say.

      Because that’s more probable than making prudent decisions in response to rising cases numbers in specific regions. You can’t claim it didn’t work to lower numbers before.

    • @Blank Space Provided You’re operating under the false assumption this is a deadly pandemic and not an overblown flu.
