The bodega man isn’t wearing a mask anymore.

He just got tired of it.

Published

on

I just went to go pick up dinner from an Indian restaurant a few blocks away. I passed by maybe 20 or 30 stores: laundromats, bodegas, 99cent stores, restaurants, bike shops, etc. There wasn’t a single place where everyone was wearing a mask.

I live in Harlem. When Biden won, there was partying in the streets. It’s a liberal neighborhood with an overwhelming majority of non-white people. It’s not an anti-mask, white Republican area that says COVID is a conspiracy.

Masks are no longer a political statement; everyone is just complacent.

I don’t even like going to my favorite bodega anymore, because of the three people who work there, only one wears a mask, and that’s only half the time. They know my breakfast order when I walk in, but I stopped going, because they don’t wear masks.

They’re not showing the overcrowded hospitals on TV anymore. Nobody is really talking about the lack of beds or the exhausted doctors and nurses. Therefore, too many people stopped taking it seriously, and they’re not going to take it seriously, because nobody is forcing them to.

Society in general has a limited capacity for prolonged negativity. Once a story has been terrible and dominating the news cycle for long enough, it becomes the norm, and nobody cares about it anymore. The news has had a steady undercurrent of COVID information for the past 9 months, and now, too many people have tuned out. So many people went home for the holidays this week, rational people who would never have thought of getting on a plane in April or May. We have more daily cases and deaths now than we did in April, but the difference is people don’t care as much, because they’ve maxed out on the negativity and they don’t hear it now. They don’t process it.

So yeah, the anti-mask conspiracy theorists and COVID deniers are terrible. They’ve been terrible this entire time. But now they’re not the only ones without masks. The neighborhood bodega man isn’t wearing one either, because he just got tired of it. And that’s so frustrating.

Ivermectin would be so profitable…if it worked.

Published

on

The US is a deeply capitalist country. Forget doctors, the FDA, the CDC and whoever else is allegedly conspiring against ivermectin. If livestock dewormer worked to defeat or prevent COVID, *all* of the companies who make it would be pushing it for that reason to make more money!

It’s so funny to me that these raggedy ass, anti-government, Facebook Researchers are so convinced the world is cahoots to keep horse paste away from them when the people who stand to make an absolute killing off the sales of horse paste aren’t trying to pimp the shit out!

Merck is an ivermectin manufacturer and they flat out said don’t use it for COVID. You really think they would lie about that and miss out on a bag? Please.

US News: Georgia Governor Boosts Hospital Staffing Amid COVID Surge

Published

on

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced Monday the state will spend another $125 million to increase staffing at hospitals amid a surge in coronavirus cases that has forced them to turn patients away.

(cont. US News)

Brian Kemp refuses to issue mask or vaccine mandates, not even for hospital workers and state employees, as COVID cases skyrocket. He said, “You see where mask mandates are causing fights at sporting events and on airplanes and other things. People know how to deal with the virus.”

No, they do not, because Americans in general are assholes and Republican Americans are violent assholes who cannot stand to be told what to do and have no interest in the greater good or protecting other people.

Instead, of mask/vaccine mandates, he is increasing funding to hospitals, because when your house is flooding, it’s best to just spend a ton of money to add another level instead of turning off the water.

Idiot.

CNN: A parent sent their child to school after a positive Covid-19 test.

More than 80 students may have been exposed, officials say

Published

on

More than 80 students were potentially exposed to Covid-19 on the first day of class in Reno, Nevada, on Monday after a parent sent their child to Marce Herz Middle School, despite both the parent and child receiving a positive Covid-19 test just two days earlier, Washoe County Health District officials said.

The exposed students had to quarantine at home and started distance learning on Tuesday, the Washoe County School District said.

(cont.)

One side of me feels like a parent of one of the 80 kids who were exposed: How dare this SELFISH and STUPID family interrupt and endanger the lives of 80 other families? You and your kid tested positive for COVID and you sent them to school anyway? JAIL!!!!

The other side of me feels like an armchair socialist: We don’t live in a country that adequately supports working parents. What do you usually do when your kid is sick and you can’t take time off work or afford a sitter? You send them to school with the sniffles anyway.

Nobody wins. Our federal and local governments are the reason we’re in this mess, and the reactions from everyday citizens range from honorable to laughable to desperate to idiotic.
