Daves not here

I can't wait till the non believers and anti maskers die from COVID19 then they will go guess they were right, oh wait it doesn't matter because I am dead. It will just get rid of the people helping spread COVID19 and then we will be able to get this REAL pandemic under control!

Well done Blue pill peddler!!!

You jarred all the irrelevant liberals into voice.

Doesn't take much just a little math and facts.

Dear Sheeple,

152,075 US deaths divided by the US population is 0.046%. Since March 1st, the US population has increased by 800,000 people approximately. Are you still afraid?

JohnQPublic

How about you climb out of your intellectual bondage dungeon, put on some different gear and go help those sick people in the old folks' homes? Or, are you . . . afraid?

@the real JohnQPublic

That's not my job. I don't work and especially don't work in healthcare. God's got my back, so I'm well protected. I'm the smartest person you know. Just ask my life partner.

Which site is your life partner on? MILFS with special-needs children?

@the real JohnQPublic

There you go, under-thinking again. When I want your opinion, I'll give it to you.

I would ask your life partner, but there won't be any 4H husbandry exhibits at the fair this year.

@the real JohnQPublic

Maybe next year, she can ask ewe.

Hey guess what, it's a virus, there is no cure, if it gets on your mask you will suck it through as you breathe, Hygiene and distance is your only defense.

There is a drug for lupus, malaria and arthritis that thousands of people take every day that may help but don't try that wouldn't want to take any chances.

Or take a Pez every morning. Grape works best. It may help and it's cheaper.

@the real JohnQPublic

If some of these people gargle enough bleach, they will be un-infectable. Don't stop until that happens.

I'm sorry you're bored, but I can't be troubled to entertain you all day. Maybe you should read a book.

@the real JohnQPublic

I did just read a book. It was really short. It was entitled, "How to annoy a liberal." It was one page and should have been more of a pamphlet. It just a short sentence and nothing more. It read, "State the truth."

GeeKnee

Part of the problem is the anti-maskers are subjecting retail and food service workers to so much verbal abuse, stores are unwilling to strictly enforce the mandate. We are holding firm in our business but my staff have been sworn at, made fun of, had customers walk off, throw things etc. Regardless of your political persuasion, it’s ridiculous to subject front line staff to this abuse.

@the real JohnQPublic

Is the curve flattening yet? Has anyone told the virus to stop infecting people because it's ruining our lives?

The curve probably won't flatten, since we have a surprisingly large number of people in our community unable to practice basic hygiene. Weird way to celebrate "freedom".
