    Very selfish. It's selfishness that always finds a way to blame other people for the consequences of your actions. Well, selfishness and immaturity.

    To take 75's analogy a bit further, if you're out driving, and you're speeding send running red lights, and you collide with me, it would be selfish and immature to blame me for being out on the road with you.

    Now, that analogy fails a bit, because the state opened up so the hairdresser could operate. But people like you were the ones agitating to open, exposing all of us to the risk die to your impatience, impertinence, and immaturity.

    I don’t want a lock down. I want to fear monger people into taking more responsible steps to keep people safe. I’m sorry I’m a monster.

    Did she actually infect anyone? I thought they said that because she was wearing a mask, she didn't. I mean, for all I know the cashier at Kroger could be infecting people, but she is doing God's work in selling Bud Light and Pall Malls, not something trivial.

    Unclear at this point they are tracking down everyone to test them. They said they hoped the masks stopped infections. That would actually be awesome if she was symptomatic and didn’t infect anyone just because she had a mask on, but I guess we will know if the next few days.

    The same people that applaud the baker for not making cake for a gay couples wedding are the same people yelling at the baker for making them wear a mask in their store.

    You in California? Maybe you can clear something up for me...I hear in S. Cal that you're allowed to walk on wet sand but not dry sand. What's the thinking behind that and how do do you get to the wet sand w/o first walking through the dry sand?

    Gov Newsom is turning into Gov Moonbeam. All we need is the Dead Kennedy’s to write a follow up to California Uber Alles.

    And that's what's happening with these stay at home orders. Most people are generally following them. Built into these regulations is that not everyone will follow them perfectly.

    You don't have to go out in public if you're so scared. Do what you have to do to stay healthy.

    I certainly don't want to be locked down any longer, but I want to do my part to stop the spread of this thing so we can move on with our lives. Sometimes I wonder how these freedom-loving patriots who refuse to wear masks or be dealt with the slightest inconvenience would have reacted in the 1940s when they were handed ration cards, had price controls imposed, and asked to stay off the highways.

    Of course we want people to get back to work and get the economy moving again, but the more we have this selfish "I'll do what I want because I live in a free country" attitude, the longer it's going to take and the more people are going to suffer.

    Why do you use the label "freedom loving patriots"? I wouldn't categorize the folks that fill up the California beaches and the young folks crowding the bars that way. In fact, I try not to categorize people at all.
