"I'm not asking some of America to do it," he told WebMD. "We all gotta do it."

I'd like to think this will put the stupid "but what about the protests" talking point to bed but I doubt it.

"You have no right to ask me to wear a mask! If you're scared, stay locked up at home! Don't you DARE infringe on ME going about my life as if nothing was going on. YOU'RE the one with the problem! We're NOT in this together. There is no 'together'!" - MadBomber

@#4 ... Disclaimer: ...

If it was not a paraphrase that you mentioned, it is certainly quite applicable to many who refuse to wear the mask.

They seem to look at it as being all about them, with little regard for teaming up and working together as a Country to fight a common enemy.

So what will happen in states that don't have mask mandates when the mask refusal lunatics show up at the polls without a mask and want to stand in line with the other voters? If I can think of that then you know the strategists for the GOP are already recruiting people to do just that. If it succeeds in reducing the number of voters who are concerned about their health then they can win.

In American it's safe to say that here will be violence at the polls this year. Beatings and shootings could well occur over masking at the polls. I hope I'm wrong.

so if there are all these covid dead bodies everywhere... do they match up to the number of new obituaries? coffin sales through the roof?

Look around and see if you can find information on those questions.

Simply posing them then running away isn't making a point.

Also, it's likely the count is under not over reality. Sorry, champ, but Trump owns it.

Other countries emphasize community , we emphasize the self.

My father in Thailand says everybody wears the mask when in or outdoors, its not political at all...its just expected...very few cases.
Here, either rubes falling for right wing jibberish or youth who's whole world has been based of self gratification make a bad combination.

My worry is fall coming just as the back to school mandates should of had time to super spread the virus everywhere.... good luck and stay safe, its could get really bad.

BUY VIRUS BONDS!

Good thing we're not really at war and don't really have to sacrifice anything other than the 7 seconds it takes to put on/remove a mask.

Could you imagine if the government asked everyone to do something that required actual sacrifice? This country would already be speaking Chinese with a Russian accent.

Yes and yes. Unless you are Q.

All good questions and easy to answer if you are not in denial and don't believe in magical thinking.

There are tons of stories out there but you would not normally read because it is "fake news" to you.

I might be looking for a CHEAP Harley Sportster...is it too soon to be looking for estate sales after Sturgis 2020? What's that you say, check back in three weeks?

I doubt many bikers will have wills. And probate can take years. But you might get lucky. There should be at least a few on the market soon enough. The Reaper is having a bumper year.

Just what I want - 40 year old POS technology that's still too expensive at bargain basement prices. HD are crap - they had a chance with the V-ROD but predictably blew it. I'm just looking forward to fewer retreads on the road so it's maybe safer to ride.

Texas orders extra body bags, mortuary trucks as it braces for more coronavirus deaths

Just one example that can be easily found. Hey, maybe Texas is a secret Democrat spy or something?
