As a species, were are collectively sick of this pandemic.

This isn't a new thing, there were antimaskers in 1918 too.

Norway did everything right up until everyone got sick of the quarantine and starting to let their guard down...the results were inevitable...just like the Sturges motor scooter party.

Just like the wedding reception in Maine. Just like pretty much everywhere in the world. If it were a truly relentless killer we might have been able to stay focused. But it's a sneaky snake, and only kills a few. So most needn't fear it.

I'm not afraid of it at all. But I'm staying the f*ck at home. And taking zinc and vitamin D.

And wearing my mask when I do go out in solidarity with socialists and communists everywhere!

Well, I feel I should point out that nice young thing, the governor of South Dakoda has announced that the Democrats are at it again, and trying to blame her for the Sturges Superspreader which, it turns out, wasn't a Superspreader at all! Sometimes people are so mean to those who are just trying to tell the truth and explain things to the ignorant.

I have a friend who used to go to Sturges every year. He stopped going several years ago. I asked him why and he said, with some vigor, "Them people are not riders. They go to Sturges with their fancy pickups, then park their pickup and roll their bike off the back, put on their costumes and join the parade with the rest of the frauds. I don' want a damn thing to do with them bastids!"

I gave up my own bike years ago. Figured out that if I kept it up I was going to die......

Riding a bike 100 miles on an interstate can be exhausting. Riding a chopper that far is for the young or experienced rider (experienced meaning: it's my ride.). Sounds like your friend has succinctly sized up the crowd.

12.2 BILLION dollars, right down the crapper. Anti-maskers are not freedumb fighters. They are spoiled children throwing a tantrum.

I know! 12.2 billion is the estimated healthcare cost of the Sturgis Scooter Party superspreader event.

We have a couple of those here every year and the locals are pretty sick of them.

Yeah, the worst part is that they all got together to spread the virus around, and then road off to all parts of the country to carry it to their own local circle of friends. And I bet very few of them went home and quarantined for two weeks, or put on masks!

But actually $12.2 billion is wrong: It's not like it's going to affect that many people and then stop. That estimate was just by a certain date. It's going to keep on infecting more and more people until the R value is 0, and that may take a couple of years. Even with vaccines that work.

I am beginning to think that nobody actually understands! There is a little town near ours called Sequim. Sequim has a mayor who is also a hair dresser (just trying to put stuff into perspective). He has also proudly announced that he is a follower of QANON (because its all about people deciding things themselves) and also went to Sturges (drove his pickup with his bike in the back, I am sure). Somebody suggested that he should have quarantined himself when he got back. He replied that would have been silly as there is no Covidvirus and he did all the right things anyway and there should be absolutely no problem. When queried as to what those actions might have been he replies something like; "you know, healthy things".

One continues to wonder!

Idiocracy is upon us. If you have not seen the movie, you should. It's eerie that the creator of Beavis and Butthead could be such an accurate prophet. The only thing he got wrong is the movie took place 500 years in the future.

Oh, I forgot. Seems the mayor also sells 'special' vitamins. I know, its not easy to make this stuff up! He is now in a battle, in the local paper letters to the editor, with the woman who told him he should have quarantined himself. Turns out that he is also a Trump supporter (surprise!) Just gets better and better! (Sequim seems to have a large group of rich retired folks who also seem to be constantly upset about one thing or another - all without any real grip on the reality I live in)

Oh, Sequim is a retirement community and there are a LOT of wealth there. Lots of ex military officer corps folks too. Sometimes the wealth part gets interesting. A woman lost her husband and was left with one of those 4500 sq ft houses overlooking everything. What she didn't know is that her husband spend every last dime on the house, didn't quite pay for it and she was broke. I think she ended up with welfare. The interesting part is that she belonged to a group of folks that consistently whined about them damned chiselers on welfare. Sometimes turnabout IS fair play!
