Authorities need to find a compromise so that your kids can stay at home while others can attend schools and experience the schooling in which learning from other students and facing the life as it comes is part of curriculum.

Covid19 is creating chaos on all matters not just schools
The local hardware store blamed the fact that they were out of 5 gallon buckets on supply disruptions from the virus. Home Depot had some but not many.
Gov. Greg Abbott warns if spread of COVID-19 doesn’t slow, “the next step would have to be a lockdown”
Are we having fun yet?
De Blasio is not. The people blindly following him are.
His statement is idiotic. This practically guarantees that there will be an increase in cases and deaths for blacks. Of course, they’ll then spin that as a sign of racism and racial inequality in healthcare.
Also, either gatherings aren’t the threat he’s claiming, or he doesn’t care if black people die. If he supports BLM, then he should want them to stay home where they are safer. Instead, he’s telling them they can gather and risk dying.
He brought up something I didn’t think of before. Asymptomatic positive rate is a very useful proxy measure of the probability you will encounter a corona carrier out and about.
Around SF that number has shot up of late. It’s now around 1%.
Singapore completed a general election yesterday. Voters practice social distancing and wear masks ofc wear masks. For the first time since PAP got into power from 1959, lost 10 MP seats to opposition. Apparently, Singaporeans are not happy about government’s response to Covid-19. Even though Singaporeans are hardly infected, many foreign workers housed in the dormitories are - mostly asymptomatic and mild - giving Singapore a bad reputation. Government should have reduced the number of tests
Yeah he knows all this, but as long as he gets popularity from his supporters he doesn’t care, just like Trump wants big rallies. Neither of them care about their stupid blind supporters health.

Just some food for thought…
"It’s just a MASK, you guys. Don’t be a jerk. It’s for the greater good!”
"It’s just a VACCINE, you guys. Don’t be a jerk. It’s for the greater good!”
In 4 months, the U.S. transformed into an obedient socialist country. Government dictated what events are acceptable to attend. Violent protests that instill fear are OK but church services, family funerals and patriotic celebrations are dangerous. And you bought it without a fight.
Standing in a graduation line is a “safety hazard”. Small businesses were forced to close but crowds to support the corporate money machine at WalMart, Lowes and Home Depot are OK.
Come on. It’s “just a mask” & “safety precautions”.
How about a little hush money. ￼Here’s $2,400 that we stole out of your pay check in the first place. Enjoy. Buy something with it. From a big corporation.￼
Cash is dirty. We can’t give change. There’s a coin shortage. Use your card.￼ In 4 months, they convinced you to use a traceable card for everything.￼
In less than 4 months, government closed public schools then “restructured” education under the guise of “public safety”. In less than 4 months, our government demonstrated how easily people assimilate to “guidelines” that have NO scientific premise whatsoever when you are fearful.
In less than 4 months, our government successfully instilled fear in a majority of the population in America that allows them to control every aspect of your life. Including what you eat, where you go, who you see and your toilet paper.
And the most dangerous and terrifying part? People are not afraid of the government who removed their freedom. They’re afraid of their neighbors, family and friends.
And they hate those who won’t comply.
It’s absolutely terrifying to me that so many people don’t question “authority”. They are willing to surrender their critical thinking skills and independence. They just… gave up without thinking. Without a fight.
Do you know what’s coming next?
“It’s just a vaccine. Come on. It’s for the greater good”.
Wait until you’re told that you can’t enter any store or business without proof of the Covid-19 vaccine. Wait until you can’t go to public events or get on a plane without proof of receiving the vaccine.
To everyone that doesn’t believe this is possible - DO YOU UNDERSTAND that government successfully dictated to people WHEN they were allowed to be outside, where they were allowed to go, and how their children would be educated in less than 4 months? And that a majority of the population followed blindly because they were told to do so.
You’re kidding yourself if you think this behavior won’t be repeated with a vaccine. Or whatever the next step is.￼
Can we say that Covid-19 is offering the most practical civics lesson on how the state can take over and distort every aspect of public life?
Funny how the “law and order” people only want it applied to other people. “Me following authority’s order? Are you nuts?”
Does your friend drive 120 miles an hour on freeways? Only socialists follow speed limit it seems.
Interstate freeways are owned by Federal Govt, so it decides speed limit. On state highways, state decides the speed limit. You can buy your own 100 miles long and 200 feet wide land and build a road. You will get to decide your own speed limit. That is what I said earlier. Covid-19 is offering good civics questions.
The problem is that on activities controlled by state or cities, we are seeing a huge distortion on the application of mind and intent.
