We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

It's wholly not effective, it just creates further divide and promotes the idea that those with similar beliefs are on your team and those that don't, aren't.

So then we just go back and forth with a bunch of stupidity and nothing is accomplished, you can respect people without agreeing with them, or agree to disagree in a reasonable debate. Those things largely don't exist anymore.

The wisdom of Carlin is always high on the list.

I think the 20% has probably won. The 80% might as well admit defeat and open everything back up.
I'd say right now it's about 75% open shit up and 25% keep shit closed. Each day the spread widens.

If 'it's all an illusion' then I'm not invested in any of your rights and you're not invested in any of mine, and it's everyone for themselves and we're all out forming ad hoc lynch mobs to shame, cajole or muscle others into compliance.

If George Carlin’s philosophy can’t resonate with you (simply because he’s a comedian), you’re an idiot, and I’m not talking about book smarts.

I'd be interested to see who was polled. What I am seeing right now says differently. The cashier at Menards said they were doing black Friday sales number every Saturday and Sunday. Usually it's just women and old people bitching about opening back up.
