  1. Anxious, startled, panicked, scared, terrified. We need another level between scared and terrified…. Maybe petrified?
    Don’t know about you guys, but this cases cases cases cases cases cases cases cases rhetoric is growing old. I really don’t give a crap anymore, go ahead, have us wear masks for another 5 years, keep doing your business destoying lock downs, I dont care anymore. Youve made a bear out of a fly…

  2. You see, when you create mandates with no consequences you get what is commonly referred to as non-compliance. Non-compliance is further emboldened when that same government entity re-creates the original mapping of consequences, especially when the causality of the change is the peoples non-compliance to the original mapping of consequences. Creating a “Double secret probation” was a joke back in 1978 when “Animal House” Originally came out. It is still viewed as a joke today. If people are not following the mandate, then the choice is plainly clear.

    We do not give a person a “Get out of jail free” card for violating CRS as a blanket policy, but yet that is exactly what was just done in this circumstance. A dog with no teeth is not a threat.

  3. If the lockdown worked the first time, why are we having another? If the lockdown didn’t work the first time, why are we having another?

    1. I believe this has been addressed before, but I will go through it again. Slowing the spread did work in March-May, well enough that we were able to go into a temporary remission. Fall/Winter approached and we still do not have a vaccination and the virus was still amongst the populace of the world. As all of these factors occurred, it caused what is commonly referred to as a “Second Wave”, also known as a resurgence.

      Your still operating that the first “Slow the spread” response was operating as a “Stop the spread”, and that is where your disconnect is occurring. To be clear, this second response is also a “Slow the spread”, because most understand to “stop the spread”, one must have either “herd immunity” to the virus or was vaccinated.

  4. Agreed. However, with moving goalposts one has to wonder if political power is trumping access to vaccines and/or herd immunity. “Expert” timelines now extend into 2022. Why? Do the experts and power grabbers enjoy their new authority? Are the same number of people going to die, as if we’d done NOTHING and natural immunity was obtained?
