you are playing with semantics,
The big mistake the regulators made was not making mask wearing mandatory. This is a respiratory condition....... and a contagious one. It does not hurt anyone to war this kind of protection.
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
EXACTLY, JLM, EXACTLY.
A lot of good wisdom in your words.
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.
No it comes from the Democratic Party version of what Trump said. Usually not even close to what he really said.
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.
Almost 62,000 cases in America while Canada had less than 350.
What kind of assholes are running that country.
And yet in the beginning when we wanted the same rules in Canada we were called racist. GO figure.
I guess it depends on how one defines the word "crazy" First of all, it is an insulting word and a pejorative.
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.
