Enforcing social distancing isn't easy, even when you're simply trying to serve people ice cream.

This is a big one. Good post. It's worth being kind to each other. We have no idea what health issues people have, or if they are worried about infecting someone they care for. I sure don't want to bring this into my parent's home.

Don't be a jerk and DON'T LISTEN TO TRUMP.

The dead and dying are just collateral damage and mean nothing to him.

Our used to be resident rigthies strike me as the types who would shut down an ice cream shop because they abused the teenage employees for not serving them their ice cream fast enough.

That's only one story. The shutdown seems to bringing out ravenous crazies across the country.

You are mistaking that for your own ideology. Self entitled and elitist liberals will be the ones who think the employees are beneath them. And it's nice how the article lists incidents everywhere else except for Mass, which is where this incident took place.

#5 and #6 my counterargument is reality.

Full of crap, as usual Boaz.

Boaz and his pet are engaging in simple projection. They call liberals the same thing they have been proudly doing as cons, but calling patriotism instead of selfishness.

That makes no sense, the article starts with the incident that took place in Mass.

I suspect some of those 'fine people' will feel the need to travel in public strapped, and much sooner than later one of them will feel the need to fire on someone who asks for some space, or asks them to wear a mask...

No, I'm saying why bring up incidents outside of Mass, they have nothing to do with Mass..

I've decided that I'm going to mostly give up.

At least 80% of the people in my community have stopped wearing masks or respecting personal space. From now on when they get too close, I'm just going to pull my mask down and start coughing my ass off. I hope they get the point.

This glut of oil is precisely when we should be implementing the Green New Deal.

Admitting this is entirely anecdotal, here's a breakdown in descending order of categories I've received push back from for requiring masks be worn in my establishments:

Men,

Older,

White.

I'm sure this pretty much Venns with GOP demographics.

If it bothers you, stay home. No one is forcing you into sharing spaces with others. And they can't enter your home without permission. If they try, shoot them.

And if you do have to go out, wear one of these babies.

Nope! I have stuff to do as well. If what I suggested bothers you, then stay the ---- away from me.

People who opt not to wear a mask have the right to kills themselves if they want to. But they don't have the right to take me with them.

It's that old old saying: "Your rights end where my hose starts."

When I leave this world it's not going to be as one of Trump's statistics.

Lot's of luck to Madbomber. But the smart money is on WHATSLEFT.

#20 that's a pack of lies posted by an idiot that's crawled out from under the rock. I'd say welcome back, but this incarnation of you was never valued.

Yeah! The "you're taking my rights! I want to speak to a manager" folks are "elitist liberals"!

Good God.

It's no surprise, though, considering you see everything negative as being "libruls".

If it bothers you, stay home.

You can't completely, totally isolate oneself.

Stop acting as if this is possible and a plausible solution.

Again, the universe does not and has never been about YOU.

I guess you haven't noticed but millions of doctors and nurses have been using masks for years and years. None of your ridiculous claims have ever been true.
