No it comes from the Democratic Party version of what Trump said. Usually not even close to what he really said.

Rebelling about it, is just childish. but one can see why it happens. The rules were not strict enough. If you give folks a choice....... they will choose what is most appealing to them. that is human nature.
But it is too late now. If things spike again........ or get out of control......... people will not have a choice as to what to do. So why not prevent it , using whatever means we have?? It is a question of behaving RESPONSIBLY.........We are seeing what is happening in the southern states ........and that is where they refused to mask up , physical distance etc They just won't be told what to do........and Trump fosters that attitude. He, with his attitude and lack of example........ has contributed to the mess in the US.

In the final analysis...... people can choose. Contaminate others, keep the virus going....... and destroy lives due to their irresponsible behavior.(non conforming behavior) Either way....it is also very selfish.

everyone on here is a person with their own views... and contributions. ROC are there for a reason. Perhaps being a on conformist is your style

But the EXPERTS said they were not necessary, so should we still believe those same EXPERTS or maybe find different EXPERTS .

A lot of good wisdom in your words.

BRAVO

It is puzzling that some can't grasp the basics of the situation. We in BC have been lucky as we have had a good instructor (Dr Bonie)...... who explained things in an understandable way that anyone.......even the uneducated can grasp.. that does snot mean we can relax completely....... as we could be at that tricky period now.

So what exactly has Doctor Bonnie Henry said that differs from what Doctor Teresa Tam said ? Why is Doctor Henry held in higher regard? Are you projecting white priviledge or are you racist ? Think first .

Are you saying that there are two versions of anything that Trump says?? A Dem version and a Trumpian version??

No wonder the US is in such trouble. That might explain the confusion .. No wonder they can't find a middle ground or learn to compromise.

That pretty much sums it up. What WAPO and NYT place in their rags is quite often editorial comment or outright lies passed off as news. That is why they are forced to do so many retractions. Unfortunately the retractions often get missed because they are hidden on the back pages.

99.9% of people in New Zealand are awesome. We had the unfortunate luck of having the vocal 0.1% post here.

About 10% of predictions.
BC has had 3000 cases and a little over 100 deaths, all in raisin warehouses. And since all of them are one foot in the grave to start with it can be debated if Covid19 actually killed them.
This doesn't mean that people should not take precautions but we didn't have to destroy our economy to do it. Construction never stopped. None of us even got sick, never mind dying.

Don't give him such a hard time. This is typically what happens to a 55 year old man, who has never seen female genitalia.

the average covid fatality costs over a decade of life.

we have known that for quite some time and it should have put an end to the "one foot in the grave" theory.

There is no question that Donald is mentally dysfunctional , impaired is emotionally and psychologically unstable.
It is also a question of degree. He has some very extreme symptoms. His impaired concentration , his confabulation, and impaired memory could be signs of organic brain disorder.......ie dementia . This might be why he does no read the info given to him. . Suggesting injecting bleach or disinfectants......is NOT RATIONAL. Nor is his frequent knee jerk rage response
He likes the position /status/ glamour of POTUS . but does not like the actual job of the role. He finds it tedious, annoying, and even boring. He is not overly intelligent, and has cheating and lying in his psychological DNA.He lacks empathy, compassion, and seems void of a conscience. It does not bother him ,when he HURTS others. In fact he takes a vicarious satisfaction/ pleasure in doing so.

Have you ever worked 16hrs a day+ for 3 1/2 years?
That goes for any President.
Go through photos of former Presidents and point out the ones who didnt go grey from stress after the first year.
