    I never thought things could get this bad. Ohio is floating this as well. I don't know if Dewine would veto, I doubt they could override the veto.

    Good, it makes perfect sense. There is no reason for kids to wear masks. But they have the option to wear them if they want. Not that it offers much protection in the first place but that’s not what the mask mandates are about.

    This is probably the stupidest fucking thing I've heard throughout the pandemic. Go to your nearest hospital and explain to the staff how ineffective masks are, genius.

    Why a hospital? Why not the nearest Starbucks or McDonald’s?

    What makes you think masks are effective? Because the box of masks on my desk clearly states (and I paraphrase) “does fuck all to stop covid”.

    If my toilet's fucked, I call a plumber. If my car is fucked, I ask for a mechanics opinion. When it is regards to a global pandemic, I tend to listen to the advice of virologists who have spent decades of their lives studying in this field. Good luck with your Starbucks and Daily Mail idiocy - I've run out of fucks to give to morons who dismiss what experts say just to be edgy about pseudo-freedoms and other asinine bullshit.

    For the most part they aren't dying. Congrats on providing a truthful statement.
    They can still get it, and they can still spread it. But they're not dying or being hospitalized.
    Well, you got one in a row. Again, a minority of them need hospitalization. And that number is small relative to the unvax'd. But it is a number of people regardless. So more unvax'd will need hospitalization and more vax'd need hospitalization. And with transmission so much easier, the spread will be much faster... causing potential strain on the health care system, especially using the Dr. Zoidberg's HASP.

    No, going through the loss of my father in March 2020, and the 24 month run-up to it was rough. Having to cope with his loss in a pandemic and not able to get out was rough. Having people be oblivious why I wouldn't want to put my surviving mother (or other people with family members with not great health or on medications that reduce their immune system) at risk is more frustrating than rough.
    You are incoherent. Endemic Covid-19 is just something we're going to have to learn to live with. There is nothing we can do about that.

    Regular flu is also dangerous. It kills hundreds of thousands each season.

    The goal of the vaccination drive was to turn Covid-19 into a normal flu. And we have succeeded.

    I'm sorry about your loss. Not to sound callous, but people die. It's normal. At some point we are going to have to accept that for every disease there is a point where the cost of fighting it is higher than the rewards. There's a sweet spot. Which isn't comforting for those immunocompromised. But it is a fact of life.

    The goal of the vaccine was to end the epidemic.

    The problem is too few got the vaccine.

    A lot of despicable evil people refused to get it.

    And it looks like vaccinated people should not have stopped wearing masks and everyone should start wearing them again.

    Nancy Pelosi and Joe Hitler were not the first American leaders who wanted to foist vaccination on citizens.

    And I hear that some money still has Fuhrer Washington's face on it. Do not spend that money! Mail it to my PAC for proper destruction. By the way, Alexander Hamilton and especially Benjamin Franklin were also fascist traitors.

    Typhoid Mary's freedoms are more important than how many people die of typhoid. I think that's TSwizzle's argument.

    To put it another way, your toilet has rights!
