I am really disappointed in some of you. Not that my opinion matters, but I am. I’m sure I’ll get flamed for what I’m about to say, but I don’t really care.

There was a time when I thought I aligned with many here on ATS on an intellectual, maturity and objectivity level. With what I see here now, I see I guess I was sorely mistaken on many fronts. We didn’t always agree on politics, but at least we agreed on common decency, common sense and, well, sanity. Not so much anymore.

Now, people can call me whatever name they wish, but in reality I think most here know I am a conservative, I believe in the BOR of the US, and I am a ardent supporter and practitioner of 1st and 2nd Amendment rights along with all (8) others.

Along comes a crisis, and modern society loses it’s collective mind(s). Up is now down, and red and blue have been reversed. It seems most everyone has some kind of an opinion of what is going on, and well above 90% of those opinions are hyper-critical of something. In short, upwards of 90% of those opinions are wrong.

Hypocrisy reigns supreme today.

For all the “my rights are being trampled upon by the virus restrictions” keyboard-warriors here…guess what? Go out, have a party, invite all your friends, ALL of them…have a great big party. Dance around the fire and shoot your guns in the air to scare anyone who dare tries to stop you! You’re free after all…dammit! Go do it!!! Stop pissing and moaning about it, and just go DO IT!! (Otherwise…STFU!)

But you won’t go do it! You won’t go do it because YOU TOO are afraid. Instead, you’ll sit behind your computer screen and endlessly espouse all the hypothetical absolutes of freedom, cite the Constitution and the Founding Fathers endlessly from the safety and security of YOUR own self-isolation. All you are doing is trying to incite others. Do you really want a civil war? Is that what you really want, rioting in the streets, anarchy and chaos??? If so, then go DO IT! Go right on out there with your bad-self and lead the charge! DO IT! But you won’t.

No, YOU are part of the “problem”, not part of the “solution”!

YOU are a large part of the reason some of these draconian measures exist at all. If if wasn’t for YOU saying ”I have the RIGHT to go out and do whatever the hell I please! ME…ME…ME!”, then maybe some of these measures might not have been undertaken, or to such a degree. Oh sure, there’s plenty of stupid people who know no different, but why are so many of you bent on becoming one of them??? It just blows my mind! People here whom I thought were reasonable seemingly have lost their minds!

And then there’s the misguided hatred. Trump was your president. Then times got tough, and all of a sudden everyone has TDS. Hey, newsflash…Trump is still your president, and Trump didn’t create this. But all of a sudden, Trump is no longer your president. Most of you haven’t even seen “real” hardship yet, and you’re all ready to give up. Anarchy. Really, WTH?? “Waaaa, I can’t leave my house. Waaa, Trump did this. Waaaa, there’s no TP. It’s all Trump’s fault! LET’S RISE UP!” How asinine.

This post isn’t about Trump…it’s about YOU! And you know who “YOU” are! Look in the mirror.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think the vast majority here were a bunch of sniveling little sissy-whiners!

Here’s some words of wisdom…

MAN UP, DAMMIT!

BE PART OF THE SOLUTION! STOP BEING MORE PARTS OF THE SAME DAMN PROBLEM!

Ready for a dose of realism?

Covid-19 is a coronavirus.

Colds are coronaviruses.

In 100 years of actual "science", there has never been an effective cure or vaccine for a coronavirus.

Now government and labs say that they'll have a vaccine in 60 to 90 days?



If people think this is temporary and that government has the solution, then many will be sorely disappointed.

Our losses won't be temporary, our lives will be changing.

Covid-19 is here to stay.

However, before anything can actually be done, an acknowledgement must be made to the facts of the situation and not the ginned up lies, hyperbole from government.

We can deal with this rationally, calmly, or continue to stain our collective tighty-whiteys.

Exactly!

And whatever happens, we will have to deal with it. That, or I guess everyone can just give up and go lay out in the yard and wait for the birds to start picking out their eyes.

What part of reality am I missing?

Personal responsibility is now a taboo idea, a term of bigotry.

I knew our nation was getting soft... Just didn't know it was this bad.

This right here would calm many. The worst thing about this whole thing is we don't know what's really going on.

Most know things are being withheld from them. Fear of the unknown is the worst fear IMO.

The public needs to be informed so they can pull together and face this.

Way back in the 80’s. I’ll say 1987ish to 1988ish, there was a “cure” to the common cold that actually didn’t do anything but nuke the symptoms, you still had the cold but didn’t feel like it. Pretty sure it had things like Contac 400 and other goodies that have all been banned over the years all in a single super pill.

Dump some water pills in the mix and see what happens.

Covid-19 is a coronavirus.

Colds are coronaviruses.


FYI:

Causes of the Common Cold

Rhinovirus. This bunch is most active in early fall, spring, and summer. They cause 10%-40% of colds. You'll feel plenty miserable when you catch one, but the good news is they rarely make you seriously sick.

Coronavirus. These tend to do their dirty work in the winter and early spring. The coronavirus is the cause of about 20% of colds. There are more than 30 kinds, but only three or four affect people.

RSV and parainfluenza. These viruses cause 20% of colds. They sometimes lead to severe infections, like pneumonia, in young children.

I'm having a taco party on Friday. I'll post pics.

Sadly no gun shooting, not allowed even when people haven't flipped their ****.

Half the country wants to lay down and let the birds go to work, the other half is rather pissed off and the third half (yeah, I know, get over it) is too busy listening to MSM to either sh#t or go blind.

I was reading they are hopeful about a vaccine. Because they can use data from SARS.

Doctors were really close to a vaccine with SARS.

Not that I would take it.

I like the idea of using the antibodies from people who have recovered from this specific strain of the virus, working from past data of SARS research, of course.

I was reading about that too. I think the set back with that is it will not be able to be used to treat massive amounts of people.

We have a lot of SARS data to build on. It looks like South Korea applied a lot of what they learned from SARS. Seeing they were one of the few countries to pass this test.

Et tu, FCD??? No middle ground there? Either hide in your home or party like it's 1999? REALLY???

You, me and anyone else can exercise their self-evident natural right to protect themselves. Do whatever you want and can for yourself and by yourself and/or with other consenting adults.


If I didn’t know better, I’d think the vast majority here were a bunch of sniveling little sissy-whiners!


The sniveling little sissy-whiners aren't the ones standing strong and proud on their own two feet. That would be the crybabies running to the Nanny State and hiding behind the barrels of government guns pointed at their fellow citizens.


MAN UP, DAMMIT!


Screw that. I'll woman up, thank you very much. And, in fact, I already have. I've been protecting myself for 20 freaking years, knowing that a simple cold or flu could escalate and kill me, and I never once demanded or expected anyone else to do my due diligence for me. To be perfectly honest, I don't trust anyone enough to do it for me.

Some Democrats are Communists.
Some Democrats are Socialists.
Some Democrats are less Totalitarian Progressives.

Most all Democrats are bad for the US. So just like the common cold, something you got to deal with. Covid19 is the sky screamers that have built up since 2016...

To put it all in perspective.

So then we agree, right?

Oh, yeah, and I'm cool with the 'woman-up' part too. Excuse the saying, no gender injury intended. I could have said 'Cowboy up', but you'd have probably said 'cowgirl-up'.
