@Porcelain   Nice try.

 

Don't act naive - it doesn't suit you.

 

You know darn well that posters have been accused of not caring since the virus has not affected them.  It is on this thread and on the threads that have overtaken the forum for months now.

 

If I haven't worded my post to your liking, too bad.

It has been the constant theme for months.  If you think differently, or do not believe and do what I think is appropiate you are selfish and uncaring.

@MorningLover

I think I posted the other day that, from a public health standpoint, huge gatherings of hundreds to thousands of people are not a great idea. But I also believe that, based on our preexisting views of specific issues and individuals, we will be more (or less) critical of the above protests and rallies.

@Foxxee   Hi Foxee-I was responding to the stat you posted about 2100 people were hospitalized in one day.

 

Did you mean to posts new cases/deaths and not hospitalizations??

 

I think we crossed wires here.

 

 


@Cakers3 

 

Yes, posting about deaths.  Sorry for the mixup.

True. I saw many people saying if people didn't wear masks and got the virus they should not be allowed a ventilator. There were lots and lots of hateful cruel things hurled at anyone who dared question anything to do with the virus.

@CrazyDaisy   Exactly.  Everyone is an expert about every else's life.

 

I like a good dialogue about the stats-the ups and downs of the "facts" we have been given; but I also believe that posters here are doing the dang gosh darn best that they can.

 

Trying to make others out as uninformed and uncaring tells me more about those accusers than anything else.

 

Let people be and let them do the best that they can.

 

I don't even like kool-aid.  Just sayin'.

@Foxxee   Got it.   Thanks for the clarification.  Our county isn't doing the best but we carry on as best as we can.

I do think it's foolish to put one's self in harm's way unnecessarily. And not just with a virus.We all look at that and assess that differently. But everyone here claims to be protecting themselves and their loved ones, calculating their risks and acting appropriately. We are all basically doing the same thing with a few variations. I don't see what there is to fight about.

So if we don't look at the Covid numbers and nobody talks about them or provides any updates, we get to be surprised. Like throwing a huge surprise party where we have no idea how many people might be coming and we don't prepare anything.

I believe the argument is that some want to force others and shame others into doing what they want them to do. Others say let poeple decide for themselves how to behave. If you're afraid of people not doing enough then stay home.
