Yes 42 in hospital 14 in icu Out of 5000000++!
Still very low numbers thankfully time to lift
Some restrictions and stop the fear mongering. IMO
It was in the tens a week or two ago, and it was up to 49 last update. I mean, which restrictions are that bothersome?? Businesses are open. Schools are in, and I work at a school, it's not that restricted.
Are you hoping to go to parties and nightclubs? Maybe the strippers? Bc has been so lax im not sure where you're coming from. Also, we are trying to protect your age group specifically.

I can protect myself I am not worried about this virus or any other eventually we all die from something this virus is not that deadly anymore that’s obvious if you look at the numbers. Let’s
Move on and be normal and get rid of those stupid masks

Ah. So its all about you then? Whether my 72 year old mom dies alone, or anyone for that matter, is irrelevant. Remind me again which generation is the 'me generation' ?

The uproar against masks is a sign of our failing education system. This inability to make even the smallest sacrifice for the benefit of society as a whole shows you how ineffective this capitalistic, growth at any cost system is at raising a healthy society. Masks are a symbol of selflessness, thereby a sign of evil apparently.

Restaurants running at 50% capacity wouldn't be a problem at all if they didn't run on tiny margins likely trying to pay down massive amounts of debt. This debt based economy was bound to collapse anyways, it is mathematically impossible to keep going. Eventually the bubble will burst.

We should be talking about reforming our society here, not trying this same old crap. Capitalism and growth have failed miserably and nothing can fix the unfixable.

To add to my unhinged rant, I think this back to school plan exposes schools for what they really are - daycares for the parents so they can go earn a dollar and grow the all important economy. Its not like kids learn essential life skills that would make them more independent, such as say, financial skills, growing food, shop skills, internet literacy, etc etc... Just pumping mostly useless facts into them to make them working drones like the rest of us. I work in a school and nobody has any clue whats going on, other than knowing that we have to provide childcare for parents. Who knows what could happen if home or group schooling took off? Maybe kids would learn essential skills and become less dependent on the government/corporate world to survive. That would be far more dangerous than having them all gather together in the middle of a pandemic :roll:

Wow. An election. I really hoped Horgan would be a somewhat refreshing change to the corrupt and self serving liberals.

Not surprising at all. An election was always coming sometime within the next year.

Do "most people" really feel that way? Covid isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

My mistake assuming most people feel that way. Everyone Ive heard has said that but usually people opposed to something are the most outspoken. We will find out soon.

I think the thing about covid is the longer things go on, the more we will adapt. Maybe some will be vaccinated by next year. But we know for certain things are bad, right now, as opposed to the unknown of the future.

The two party system is a farce. And it only gets worse with time. Hyper partisanship and tribalism has completely taken hold.

I really don't know much about her, I'll take your word for it , my comment was basically based on what I saw during the debate and of course their age , Pence looks the most presidential like , in sharp contrast to Trump's silly and bizarre comments and bullying personality.
