  1. It makes me CRAZY when people talk about wearing masks in terms of “the government is taking away my rights – telling me what to do”! I don’t hear that about seat belts, but protecting health by wearing a mask has become a political statement…..arrggh!

  2. So the whole “if we ignore it, it will go away” approach won’t work on a virus? Who knew

    • @Scrap cash “Trump has repeatedly said that his decision to impose the travel restrictions on Jan. 31 was made despite objections from most of the experts on containing the spread of infectious disease. ..“But we closed those borders very early, against the advice of a lot of professionals, and we turned out to be right. I took a lot of heat for that,” Trump said on March 4. But, contrary to Trump’s claim, the experts were the ones wanting the travel ban. “The travel restrictions that we put in place in consultation with the president were very measured and incremental,” Alex Michael Azar, Trump’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, told reporters on Feb. 7. “These were the uniform recommendations of the career public health officials here at HHS.” [so Trump was simply implementing the recommendations of HHS.]

      So obvious bloody idiots running the country.

    • @Scrap cash the difference here is that everyone else has accepted there is a national health crisis happening…. except Trump and his administration.
      Don’t let ur bias see through this simple arguement.

      @Scrap cash Blowing the whistle? The only whistle trump was blowing at the start was the fake news hoax whistle. You are extremely deluded if you think he did anything but inflame.

    • No no no. You dont get to talk. You know how the incubation period for covid is 2 weeks? Remember how 2 weeks ago you and cnn and the other left wingers in politics and media encouraged hundreds of thousands of people to horde in groups and protest and riot?

      WONDER WHY THERES A SPIKE NOW OF ALL TIMES MUST BE RANDOM REPUBLICANS NOT WEARING MASKS.

      @Interroga Omnia Well then, we have truly found the sheep. Capitalism in the USA is nothing like you described. Do you call mega corporations getting help from the government individualism and personal freedom? Maybe you should take an economics and politics class to realise we are far, far removed from your cute “capitalism” ideals.

    • @Jennifer McGoldrick Because Americans wouldn’t die otherwise, would they? You need to get a grip. Enforcing lockdowns was awful-if we were smart, we would have handled this like Sweden. Instead, we have torched our economy and our Civil Liberties because of a virus that the majority of people will survive. And I tell ya-if the American people don’t get it together and tell our politicians to end this crap NOW…things are only going to get worse. Mandatory vaccines are coming. We are going to end up injected with all kinds of foul bullshit-wishing we had fought back when we could have.

  4. Here is your beloved capitalism at work:
    Sacrifice people to start making profit for the corporations.
    At the cost of a human life….
    These are your values. Just look at the lunatic at the WearHouse ordering businessess to re-open and doing nothing to stop spreading the virus…
    This is mind blowing

    • Yea what’s also mind blowing is the same people who vote democrat are out there rioting not social distancing.

    • Because himself is a Bussines man and wants to keep making money

      No. People want to get back to work so they can provide a roof over their heads, and food in their bellies. Corporations actually employ thousands upon thousands of people. Also, wearing a mask isn’t that hard to do. Washing your hands, distancing and using hand sanitizer isn’t that hard to do.

    The misinformation on the internet is incredible. I’ve finally just blocked people. It hurts knowing how stupid friends and relatives can be.

    • Ironic

    • It really is out of all the things that people can accept as factual it seems folks seek out the most outrageous bits of information to align to. You can really understand why the Russians chose disinformation it’s like a magnet for what ever reason.

      Well when CNN reports one thing and fox reports another you can understand the confusion. I try to check many different sources. If you are just believing everything CNN tells you than you probably helped those people out by blocking them for your version of the truth. Don’t believe fox or CNN and ask questions .

  7. Who is running the show?? NO LEADERSHIP! Major failure.

    • And the dems are waiting time trying to get DC to be a state so they can get more electoral college votes…

    • Frances Hogan | June 27, 2020 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      It is not a failure of leadership. As always with an undemocratic government like the United States current version of government, you have to follow the money. Just look at who profits from this. the right-wingers did not start calling to reopen the government until the day after the research came out showing that primarily black people and poor people died. Black people and “takers” to quote Mitt Romney. People the wealthy right-wing oligarchs do not care about at all. With computer manipulation of the vote in the US and with voter suppression, the right-wing no longer really needs that many poor white people’s votes.

I hope all the businesses that threatened to open goes out of business. All the cry babies catch it. We need a purge of the stupidity in this nation.

    • Nah, America has chooses work over government handouts like you lefties depend on

    I remember playing chess online a few years back, with many great people from the USA. In so many cases , it would come up in chat, that they didn’t know how to endure, their high medical bills, several said they were worth more dead, than alive. All governments are not working for the people, it’s about money, power, lobbyists and how to get the most votes, so the corrupt saga can continue. The corona virus , has opened peoples eye’s, soon even the government and the wealthy won’t be able to ignore it. The virus is the true winner, it doesn’t care about politics. Everyone, wear your mask, stay home when you can. Wash your hands often . Physical distance by 10 ft , and maybe end up at 6ft ( And Pray.)

  10. The so-called leader of this poor, poor country has to be charged with dereliction of his duties and criminal negligence leading to mass murders. Simple as that.

      Yes… what do you expect from a man that puts children in jails and tears families apart because of the color of their skin? The GOP could stop this… but they are complicit.

    • Leading to mass murder? I don’t hear you talking like that about the 4 Democratic Governors who locked people in their retirement facility’s killing 10’s of thousands of Americans. Cuomo is probably your hero even though he is a mass murderer. Even if Biden was in office, what would he do? Nothing! He has already been asked and would not give an answer. What’s he going to do, call out the military and make the protesters go home and lock us all back down again? Democratic Governors, your leaders too, all locked their states down with way less numbers than we have now, yet now they do nothing. Leaders, both Blue & Red have failed us all. This virus will run it’s course and there is nothing that Biden is going to be able to change to make things better. The people, don’t trust any leader, Blue or Red, anymore. No one will listen.

    • @Lydia Alexandra Trump for 2020~!!!

    • @Chef John at my job we were told not to wear masks at the time, I’m an essential worker. We were told this and told to tell our employees not to wear them, as the task force suggested that we shouldnt buy masks (especially N95) as health care workers needed them as there was a shortage of PPE. Likewise they suggested that masks were of no use to us, unless they are N95 masks. So no one was wearing them and jobs were telling their workers, jobs that directly interact with the public on a consistent basis, not to wear masks. I was telling my employees to take their masks off, as I told by my superiors to do so, and I felt bad about it, as I knew we did not know enough about the virus to tell people that and also its their right to protect themselves if they are afraid. So I went on a LOA as it didnt feel right and I had immunity deficient people I was talking care of at home. Then I come back to work 45 days later when they started to make the suggestion that wearing masks will help us from spreading the virus if you do have it and are not showing noticeable or strong symptoms. They did not deliver the right message in the beginning, or they poorly expressed it and it no doubt lead to a greater spread.

      @Rambling Rose we have more cases because we have better testing now than any other country. Let other countries get the testing we have and see what happens.

    Even if we get a vaccine I think we will be one of the last countries to recover. The same idiots that politicize wearing masks will do the same with the vaccine.

  15. It is so sad that our own selfishness is going to end us. From the White House on down, people are just ignoring the elephant in the room; pretending everything is fine and they don’t have to follow safety rules. That is, until they, or someone they love, contracts this virus and is seriously ill or even dies.

    • @David Henderson While climate change is a big deal, that’s not the main issue right now. Ever since quarantine started, the environment was actually improving.

  18. Seatbelts = enforced
    Not wearing masks = freedom?
    Seatbelts only affect the wearer, masks affect both the wearer and people around that person. VERY STUPID

      @Smash To Bits Dude, I have had 8 surgeries and 17 hospitalizations in less than 2 yrs, and my doctors wear the masks until they get in my room and the door closes. After that, they let the mask hang on one ear and do their exams … They just cannot operate effectively all day long wearing jock straps on their faces. Perhaps you should do your research, or better yet, like I have to, find out FIRST HAND.

      @John Matthews The person wearing the mask continuously breathes in their own carbon dioxide, starving their brain for oxygen. Indeed there is a good reason for wearing them IN MEDICAL SETTINGS, but otherwise, it is silly. AND EVEN THE TINY JEWISH DOCTOR THE COUNTRY RELIES ON FOR THEIR COVID INFO, DR. FAUCI, SAYS SO – YOU DO YOUR RESEARCH!

    • Vondra Victor you desperately need scientific education

    • @Christine Benson i guess surgeons, dentists etc should not have wearing them for decades.

      @af dadE I also remember a majority of those protestors wearing masks…. I have seen none of that care for anyone here is texas, I did see 2- 20 person birthday partys at restaurants today.
