    I'm ashamed I didn't "give up" ten months ago. Pizz on all mandates. You are welcome to wear a mask and distance. I'm back to being human and accepting the potential risk of doing so. That's life. I've no interest in living the way we have.

    Yep. Don't want to be out...stay home. Simple. How many times have the goal posts been moved now? Bite me Dr. F***i.

    I think that’s the entire issue for me. They kept moving the goal posts. It was flatten the curve. Then it was oh holiday surges. Then it was well winter surge. Then it was wait on a vaccine. They kept making up excuses. Nope. Screw it. Screw them. If you’re scared then stay home, wear a mask, stay away. But don’t expect me to do the same.

    Who’s they?
    One thing that is great about science is that it can change based on new information. Humans.....not so much.

    the problem with the recommendations based on the science was that many states and individuals did not or refused to follow them. You make predictions based on assumptions. Bad assumption to think that humans will do the right thing.

    Then maybe they should shut their yaps if they are not 'sure' what they are saying. Just like what I quoted, 'just a few more months'. Not, 'hopefully', not 'unless something changes', not 'if we are lucky'. Nope. Definitive statements.

    Masks don't work. Oh, wait, yes they do. You won't need a mask if you get the shot. Oh, wait, yes you do.

    Should be required reading....

    What’s the right thing? To stand by and watch the government purposely put you of a job and be forced to close your business? Meh. Gooberment overstepped their boundaries on this one.

    I was in a coffee shop in Montana 13 months ago, and the guy there told me we'd be trending back to normal in a couple of weeks.
    He seemed like a smart enough guy. But sometimes people are just wrong. ;)
