I was out and about in Austin today and kept noticing small groups of young adults and youths who were not observing social distancing. I assume they’re like I was at that age — immortal and invincible. But it’s more than irritating to think they could be carriers without the signs, spreading the virus wherever they go. At some point — soon I hope — there must be consequences for such irresponsible, antisocial behavior. Fines, community service, maybe jail if the virus spreads like wildfire and people keep acting stupidly.
. Wow we were just talking about this today. the wife and I. In WA state it is the young adults just caring on at the beach and other things. Looks like about an hour ago the Governor gave a stay at home issue

Are you saying living one's life is a crime ?

Everyone boot-licking is willing to berate the younger folks for that, but conveniently ignores or otherwise excuses the older ones doing it. It's rather two-faced.

We don't have a police state in my State.
And , due to common sense prevailing , most likely will not.

Pretty good indication of why, if anything, we need to raise the voting age, with an exception if you serve in the military.

These young people can't think more than 5 minutes in front of them, and don't understand history either, which is why they find socialism and other nonsense appealing. They live sheltered lives at college and don't understand the real world.

Not even vaguely young anymore...

...and I'm not the slightest bit concerned about contracting the latest in doomsday plagues.

They probably just looked at this website .

I wonder how many of these kids have gotten different shots to protect them from viruses? They would hopefuly consider others as others have consider them and what they have to deal with is worth developing vaccines for them.

Thank you! I’m not pro-millennial/GenZ by any means, but this young people shaming is ridiculous.

Young people are going to the beach and National parks.
Older people are out in force at Target, Walmart, and most of all— Costco. Younger going to wide open spaces. Older going to confined indoor areas. Just because the news is at the beach doesn’t mean Costco isn’t overflowing with gray heart.

For all this talk of social distancing, the younger are doing it way better than the older people.

As for stay at home orders— remember most states don’t have them. It’s social distancing in groups of 10 or less.

Why the F##k should they?

Uh to save lives?


Do you not understand what is really going on here?
Liberty... freedom.... death.

What liberty and freedom has been eroded by asking people to practice social distancing and to not gather in large groups?


Thank baby Jesus our younger generations are getting the Fu##ing clue!!


You mean the generation that had numerous people die during the tide pod challenge?

The generation that gets lost going home without gps navigation?

The generation that took out high interest government loans for worthless degrees?

Yeah these people have it all figured out. Let's just give them the keys to the castle already...

Social distancing is already being shamed online. Now you’re condemned as a potential murderer if you leave your house.

If you can’t get the boomers to social distance for themselves, why would you expect the younger generations to do it?

Many young people are under the impression that virus
only affects old people so they think they're safe.

Haha, here in bulgaria is the opposite. The older people go out more.

I think "millenial" has just become a catch-all term, like "whippersnapper" lol

Of course, older millenials will start hitting their 40s next year IIRC

The youth naturally sense the deception and lies coming from the adults. It is easy to see this on your television if you just open your eyes and your mind. These talking heads are actors reading a script.

It is all a giant hoax.

Even Weinstein says he has covid-19 so he can get out of jail.

Globalists are easy to spot.

Young people have immunity from eating tide pods and licking toilets, if that doesn't kill them, nothing will.

Jesus Christ!
How’s the rise going there Adolph?
Arresting people for congregating and talking. Just stay locked in your basement safe and sound then. We’ll knock when it’s safe.

It seems to me that this is regional... or personal. For everyone I see complaining about the young folks who just won't stay home, others complain about the old folks who won't just stay home for their own good. I suppose it also depends on the age of the complainer as well.

This ageism being pushed is despicable. It's darn sad that so many people are so happy to play into it.


But it’s more than irritating to think they could be carriers without the signs, spreading the virus wherever they go.


It shouldn't be irritating. It's just life. That's how life works.


At some point — soon I hope — there must be consequences for such irresponsible, antisocial behavior. Fines, community service, maybe jail if the virus spreads like wildfire and people keep acting stupidly.


So we put people in jail and let the virus spread there? Because it's not equally -- if not more -- inhumane to put others in the very position we think we're protecting ourselves from? No.

No one has any responsibility to protect others from nature. If you are worried about it, then you need to take the necessary and proper precautions for yourself. You have every right to do for yourself and by yourself. You do not have the right to demand others act to protect you, and you especially do not have the right to put others in harm's way to protect yourself.

In fact, expecting others to act in your best interests is just plain foolish. It ain't gonna happen. No matter how many government guns are pointed in their direction. If you want something done right, you've gotta do it yourself. Period.

statistics say they are at less of a risk (but miss the fact that underlying health issues can still do you in with this virus as a young person), add that on to the im young and invincible...


My daughter scolded us for thinking we're invincible... right before she grounded me! Only half kidding.


...with a decent helping of the press layering it on thick that this is a boomer problem and why would they.


Indeed. I hate seeing my daughter worry the way she does, and I know it is in large part because of the media screaming about how vulnerable we are. My daughter-in-law as well. My son is a little more practical (and cynical!) about it all, but still wants us to take "common sense" precautions.

I am not in any way cavalier about the coronavirus -- let's say I have a healthy respect for it -- but I do try to keep it in perspective, and I understand there is only so much we can do, and the rest is up to Mother Nature.
