    lol... so you don't wear a mask at what most health officials deem some of the biggest incubators of the virus? Way to help out those essential workers who you're so worried about... yet also selfish enough to call for them to be forced to show up to work where you show no regard for their lives as they clean the equipment you drop your germs all over.

    I wonder if @Folster even thinks for a half-second about the people who work in that gym,who are probably being paid very little and forced to be around people like him putting them at risk.

    Ok....and I agree. But what does calling out all the people who have run red lights and speed every day accomplish? I would think very little.. laws and regulations press people. Force is not the answer. This only creates more rebellion imo

    What the hell do you white men have to rebel against? Why you all so angry. Straight white men, are like the new England Patriots, of Americans. Go be happy and enjoy your entitlement.

    you'd have a really good point here... if America was the only country in the world and we didn't have frame of reference with how this virus is being tackled around the world.

    This is something that you and a couple others here tend to ignore ad naseum. In the majority of 1st world countries, wearing masks haven't been met with "rebellion", but with acceptance.

    The "rebellion" you seem to think is human nature isn't. At least not from science and fact. That idiotic rebellion is a distinctly American problem. Case in point... you, who doesn't believe in "facts" only perceptions.

    Your perception and people's perception like @Folster have made our country a pathetic hot spot of sickness and death, as well as a laughingstock quarantined from the rest of the world.

    Countries that believe in science and fact? Ones that understood that masks can significantly reduce the transmission of the virus are all on much better footing than we are, already back on the mend. Meanwhile, we circle the drain.

    We don't live in a vacuum. Just because you pretend we do, doesn't make it so.

    Speeding. Can’t recall ever seeing anyone ticketed first going 5 mph over the played speed limit.

    143 students and campus workers test positive at Univ of Georgia, one student readily admits they were being careless, nobody on campus was wearing masks.

    Kemp is taking it very seriously he's doing a fly around tour of Georgia and strongly recommending people wear masks, won't require it of course that would upset Trump.

    LA Times story indicates the surge of hospitalizations lines up with people getting exposed around Memorial Day or later. Memorial Day was May 25th, the protests started May 26th. Note, the increase in cases had been going on for weeks prior to that and was clearly tied to reopening, but it appears Memorial Day was the trigger for the big surge, Mothers day May 10th was another earlier trigger. There are apparently with analysis fairly distinct surges that line up from Mothers day, memorial day and the protests, but the overall trend starting up lines up essentially perfectly with the reopening.

    So it DOES appear the protests are having an impact on cases but analysis indicates they're just making it worse they weren't the actual trigger.
