Which is just code for selfishness. There are rules, and folks need to get used to it. Every time I hear someone shout “freedom” I think they’re a selfish ass and it’s in my best interest to not interact with them, since I can’t trust them to consider others.
 


 
I take you to mean that when the time comes you'll refuse to accept Social Security income, Medicare & Medicaid health benefits, etc?

Yeah, thought so.

Yeah, the is 'Merica, let's be FREE to support overt racism, income inequality in the extreme, caging immigrant men, women, & children in horrid conditions indefinitely with no due process, gerrymandering our voting districts, and throwing out all basic democratic norms that have defined us a country for over 250 years.  Fuck the world, let's isolate!  And let's get the economy open now, all those people who will die of COVID-19 were either going to kick it anyway cause they're old or are willing to die so the money flows!

These are the kinds of freedoms my father served in the military for 30 years & I served as a Vietnam Era Navy Veteran to defend & preserve?

Thank you sir, can I have another?  MAGA MAGA MAGA!!!!

Your troll-based economy seems to be on the ascendancy. Let’s see if it thrives.

That this is a rather bland assessment of our feckless leader:

It is now evident that Trump:

  • ignored early intelligence reports of a possible pandemic;
  • delayed the ramp up of practical preparations;
  • was often more focused on political considerations, on the news cycle and on stock market performance than on epidemiological reality;
  • deceptively played down what he knew to be a rising threat;
  • coddled China when it should have been confronted;
  • instinctively distrusted experts and seemed unable to absorb simple information and sound advice;
  • lashed out at aides who took the crisis seriously;
  • shifted reluctantly and belatedly from a strategy of containment to mitigation;
  • is strangely obsessed with unproven treatments for the novel coronavirus; and
  • has systemically lied about the promptness of his own response.
How will we ever look to this office again, for actual leadership?

Take it point by point. Sad.

Or how callous.

This is not about individual freedom. A person is not assuming the risk just for that person. He or she is putting others at risk.

When the topic is Eddy Curry, the jokes just come easy. It’s been that way for more than a decade. And even after all these years that I’ve been out of the league, when my name comes up online or on social media or whatever, somehow a bunch of people … still got jokes.

It’s like … Eddy Curry?

Do you remember how fat that guy was? OMG OMG LOLOLOL.

Or

How do you play in the NBA and get your house foreclosed on, bro? Like, wow. Come on, son. Hahaha.
