Is it just me?

Is it just me?

I checked the online edition of my local paper this morning and saw that my state’s AG plans to join others in filing suit to stop President Biden’s mask mandate.

My only reaction was, I just don’t care anymore. I’m tired.

I’m tired of doing the right things — masking, social distancing, getting vaccinated — only to have a group of selfish, arrogant assholes undercut every effort at getting this plague under control. I’m tired of the brute ignorance that poses as informed political commentary. I’m tired of this society thinking that if we all just go back to normal, like nothing ever happened, we can bend this virus to our collective will. I’m tired of seeing people’s deathbed confessions after months of mocking COVID. Those are the ones who I am sick and tired of the most, because they are the main reasons why we are in this endless nightmare in the first place.

We have it totally within our ability to get on top of this. We may not ever fully eradicate it, but the deep, nonsensical political and societal divide has guaranteed that we may never get “back to normal.” Whatever that is.

So, I don’t care anymore about the suits. I don’t care anymore about people not giving a damn about themselves, or their kids, their elderly relatives, or anybody else. The government and science have given them an answer and they are willfully rejecting it. There is no such thing anymore as acting for the greater good. This pandemic has made that crystal clear.

I used to get angry and frustrated, but now I’m just tired. Let the forces of nature sort this out now, as they most certainly will. When you reject all the options and advantages offered to you, like the man who cursed God for not saving him from a flood, you are on your own and you own all the consequences — including your own mortality.

Political messages and edicts have consequences. No-thought one-size-fits-all edicts cause resentment and resistance. Treating people like they are unable to discern their best interests cause resentment and resistance. Treating people like they are unable to figure out their own ways to reduce their risk cause resentment and resistance.

As for lawsuits, the wave about to crash on Washington's heads is the wave (tsunami?) of lawsuits against any reg mandating vaccination.

Just for possible future reference (not inviting/teasing/trolling for a response):

* I do wear masks in places that require it if I enter their premises. I'm neither Mask-Nazi nor Mask-Denier (though I think it is well known that the ordinary cloth masks are basically ineffective fashion statements or virtue-signals).

* I am fully vaccinated. I'm neither Vax-Nazi nor Anti-Covid-Vaxxer (though I think the former have made more people vaccine-reluctant than have the latter).

* I've been following daily vaccine injections here, https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations_vacc-total-admin-rate-total . For the past several weeks the number of injection for each day have been in the 800K-1M range. I wonder how the threat of LIEden's imperial edict will affect that daily number. My guess is that over the next week or two the daily range will drop, significantly. I will try to remember to bump this thread in a week or two with how that injections rate was affected, if at all.

Has even one DU-member connected the dots between the several debunked :bouncy: -lies and the (to me) obvious fact that there are people playing DU-grade Progs' confirmation biases by telling fictional :bouncy: -tales DU-grade Progs want to believe?

"We may not ever fully eradicate this".

"We may not ever fully eradicate this"?

No, we most definitely will not eradicate this. It is or will become endemic (if you believe science). Some people have predicted this since the beginning.

What on Earth compels people to think we could fully eradicate this?

AngryOldDem wasn’t always this way. In the past, he was an AngryYoungDem and an AngryMiddleAgedDem. And one day he’ll be an AngryDeadDem, but he’ll still be able to vote.

Nice to know the left's plan to wear down their opposition into submission or apathy is working on their own.

There's a whole subreddit dedicated to sharing those stories and mocking the victims named the Herman Cain Award in another fine example of the racism and other disgusting tendencies of the left.

Well suck it angry old dumb

I got tired of your ilk and their RESIST campaign during President Trump's term so I don't give 2 shits or a rolling donut about what you care about or what you are tired of.

I believe getting vaccinated is a good idea and that the vaccine works but I also believe in personal choice and personal freedom.  I also believe it is very divisive for any President to single out any group of individuals like bidunce did when referring to those not vaccinated in his speech.

I don't like the precedence this sets and worry about what  other demands the government will put on our bodies in the future.  Whats next?  Forced drugging for those who disagree with the current regime?    A mandatory marking system (666 anybody?) on our bodies so the government knows if we think "correctly " or if we have subversive tendencies and need to be closely watched?

This is a slippery slope and I have to ask, what if President Trump had mandated all Americans receive a medical treatment at the risk of losing your job during his term. 
Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

Police lives matter.
