People better think twice before they run a person out of a store that doesn't have a mask on around here. Doing that would be considered an attack and I would pull a weapon on you.

Ok, Karen.

No one can say if the Swedish approach is the correct one unless there is a second wave and Sweden avoids its worst effects because they have built a herd immunity from allowing it to go through its population this time.

^^^^ Well Johnny, because seeing one of their nut-case inbred MAGA cousins shot to rags would sent the rest of them running back to their trailers - or rather back to the "prepper" foxholes they've dug under their trailers, where they can cry like babies and shit their pants in fear without their sister/wives laughing at them even more than they do already.

It seems pretty simple now -- get a mask if you're going to be close to others or stay six feet away. Wash your hands a lot. That's about it. Do anything you want within these parameters. It's pretty clear that we closed down the economy way too much and too many businesses were shut down. About everything could have remained open. Nursing homes were definitely an exception. If it would have been that dangerous, everyone going to Target, Walmart, liquor stores, etc. would have been sick by now.

Yes, 9:47 is going to do something that might get him free anal for 40 years, because he feels he is a Patriot with a cap gun vs a respectful and lawful gun owner. Please turn in your weapons 947, you don't act like any gun owner I know.
