    What you and the other "furriners" can't seem to understand is that there are tens of thousands of neighborhoods in the USA and most of them are pretty decent places to live.

    But they don't make the news.

    Boring and safe won't hold viewers' attention so the old media axiom which still applies is "If it bleeds it leads".

    When that happens feel free to go get it. Many of the rest of us will wait until we see how the first human Guinea Pigs fare, or we may just decide it's yet another unnecessary vaccine and skip it.

    Never been a successful coronavirus vaccine. I wouldn't hold my breath.

    All you damned idiots who think that it’s all a scam....virus is bogus. I say you should visit any funeral home in a city of 200,000 or more.

    what you will mainly see are the old and sickly that did die, like you will always see in a funeral home.

    you know what the average number of daily deaths with/from covid19 is over the last seven days in sweden?
    you know, sweden where most schools stayed open, most businesses stayed open and people are not wearing masks.
    it is five a day.
    normal death rate year round is about 250 a day.
    at the moment the death rate is below the five year average for the period.

    WHY?

    Sitting at home 24/7 pounding out posts on PM how "I ain't going to wear a mask" is clearly safer, some of you are living proof of that! But that is not living, I still need food, supplies from the hardware store, and shipping out parts to keep the world running, no dilly dallying in store, get in, get out, avoid the brain dead zombies with no mask. Bought 6 quarts of hand sanitizer from NAPA in may, 3 squirts into my hand anytime I get back in truck, still working on first quart. The only prepared food I've eaten in months was fried chicken, fresh out of boiling oil seemed safe enough to try

    Lets see how much of your vape cloud makes it thru a P100 cartridge, not thru the exhaust port, thru the filter.

    Not embarrassed and I'm not seeing myself so cute that wearing a mask diminishes me. Maybe makes me look better....
    Did paint my first car without a mask. Walked into the house when done, felt a bit funny and then fell flat on my face.
    Did not feel a thing but the nose and forehead was bleeding, this my first "buzz". This only lacquer but got me thinking why not.
    I just can not wrap my head around no mask. Are you one of the beautiful people and need to show it?
    What is the bad to wearing a mask? Answers seem to be I do not want to be a sheep or rebel without a cause.
    If there were better protection masks and face coverings would you wear one? Demon has shown some of these.
    This is not a huge ask, yes a pain in the ass sometimes but a small thing to do and shows a consideration for others if nothing else.
    Do you pull the chair out for a lady or hold open doors for others?

    As far as I can read it's the US right wing PM members who seem to think covid 19 isn't really dangerous or a hoax.

    It does make it credible why the same folk believe the lies Trump continues to spout.

    Trump Is Lying More Than Ever: Just Look At The Data

    Trump has certainly made Amerca great again. The country with the most covid cases. I'll bet other countries don't want to beat the USA in that "competition".

    Easy to point to Trump or right wing but than not really the real deal on the ground here. You are simplifying things to fit in your box.\
    Plenty on the left who question just what is going on and the way out.

    Will there have to be separate Republican & Democrat vaccines?

    maybe you better avoid all brain dead zombies, the ones without the masks but especially the ones with the masks.i wonder if you are actually wearing that mask with the P100 cartridge.

    best would be three vaccines.
    a dubious red one for the republicans, a dubious blue one for the democrats and the colourless one, that actually does work, for the rest.
    i bet that would bring a speedy end to the party political bullshit.

    if you are walking on a sloping roof you are very careful in what you do.
    if you are secured with a line not so much because you are feeling safer.
    now imagine the end of the line not being tied to anything without you knowing.
    masks give a sense of security without providing any.

    Like your thinking, ............think we'd best have 3 separate doctors to administer them as well.

    I am from rockford and when growing up it was a good city to live in and it seemed pretty safe. Fast forward 30 years later and I won’t really set foot in most of the city any more for the reason crime is high and there are too many shootings. the good neighborhoods are leaving along with manufacturing and businesses. Walmart moved in rockford about 30 years ago and pretty much killed off a lot of good small businesses. There is a Walmart that was build near my old house about 20 years ago and it wiped out 3 grocery stores, a strip mall a couple kmarts etc. my old area was a good neighborhood and now it looks like a run down area. The Walmart that is built in that area is a shit hole now. It is really sad seeing this are look like a dump but this is what happens with the hood rats and trailer park trash move into the area.

    I don’t think it is a scam but how do you expect people to take this disease so serious when you have people protesting 24/7 or professional sports starting up with several players testing positive?
    our idiot politicians on both sides can’t seem to agree on anything, they are doing to little to up hold the law, they seem more fascinated with BLM movement.
