    Rogan has been talking about just that for weeks. Unfortunately that requires people to be honest with themselves and take responsibility for their own health and even lives...and that's apparently too much to ask for from most people these days.

    As Homer Simpson once said, "This is everbody's fault but mine."

    Too bad the people who need to hear this the most aren't listening to Rogan. They're busy marveling at Anderson Cooper's impeccable wardrobe and calling each other names on Facebook.

    This right here, exactly this.

    Just like the closing of schools, stoppage of sporting events, cancelling of large events early on and eventually lockdowns it has neber been about stopping the spread and now all of a sudden it is.

    Where are the calls to stop elective surgeries again to sto0 the hospital beds from being taken up? They're not, they're blaming it on the masks now.

    Say everyone starts wearing masks yet no one changes habits. Does the spread suddenly stop? No, because masks do not stop the spread it only "slows" it.

    So what then? Then they start clammoring how we need to shut everything down again and keep people inside because the masks are not enough.

    I've repeatedly stated to the forum bar clamp that if I lived somewhere where the numbers were out of control I would likely view things differently. Fact remains I do not. My choosing not to wear a mask for the brief time I go into a store in Springfield, IL has no effect whatsoever on growing numbers in TX, AZ, FL or whatever other state not hit early on that is now seeing their turn in this. More importantly, I would not find myself going to places where the masses tend to go, so I still would not need a mask. I wear one where I need to go and they are required to enter.

    It's like everyone thinks that if everyone in the country put a t-shirt over their head back in February we would be attending baseball games, kids would have graduated their particular grades without interruption in their school year and Covid-19 would be a thing that almost was.

    Secondly, to all the calls that Trump needs to send resources to the places that are seeing the numbers rise right now I ask. Where are all the resources that Cuomo promised to send to areas that would need it later on when they needed it after he mercifully prayed for anyone with a stethoscope to come to NY?

    159 pages and a guy can finally cash in the Golden Corral golden ticket... I hope the outcome of that or the 6 pack of corona isn't worse than the actual infection.

    I'm glad you are past the worst of it Jay!

    I fear the day the vaccine is announced actually, it is going to be more politicized than the masks currently are.

    People who refuse to get it will be chastized just as badly as those who do not wear masks. They'll be calling for legislation making it mandatory to be vaccinated, even the antivaxxer's will be clammoring such all the while refusing to vax their own children.

    It's a never ending cycle in the good ol' US of A

    I have changed my opinion on one major issue with this pandemic. I never knew how selfish "My Body my Choice" comment was until now, I get it now across the board.

    Only 6 because I don't like it that much, but it just feels appropriate:(.
    Funny thing is that these last 10 days are probably the longest I've gone without a beer for as long as i can remember. Going to taste pretty darn good,

    I've been thinking about dropping down to 10 seconds or cutting the soap in half. This helps me make that decision easier.

    So now there's a lady suing one of the local school districts over the mask mandate they're wanting to put in place for the school year. Kinda funny listening to the back and fourth.

    Makes me kinda wonder how many ppl that are all for it also don't vaccinate their kids before the school year.

    I am sick of this crap, I am sick of the feeling of being tentative. I feel like I am not doing my job. I get paid to travel and meet with people and doing it online or by video is far from the real thing. I just want to get back to being productive, plus I am sick of baby sitting the in-house sales staff. I am fairly certain they want me back on the road too.

    Funny the militant maskers also are part of the anti vax crowd.
