Some thoughts on covid and reopening protests....

I see all the news about these reopen now protests from Michigan to Kentucky to California and can't help but think ....

1. Every "protest" I've seen reported is actually very small as far as the crowd size is compared to the States where they are happening populations are concerned.

2. Since these people want their damn haircuts so bad why has not the maga crowd come up with a boatload of new businesses that cater to this desire. I mean.... come to your home and cut your hair, do your nails etc. . That way they can keep themselves clustered and leave the rest of us that much safer. When these people start dying off faster than the general public maybe , just maybe they would take this a bit more seriously.

3. And this one really stands out for me, WHERE are the counter protests? I shouldn't have to die because YOU want a haircut etc. We know that these "protests" are paid for and organized by the right, where are OUR "let me live" counterprotests/rally's? If all the average person sees are the wingnuts screaming to reopen they may think that the sentiment is more widespread than it is. Like it or not Humanity as a whole are herd animals and we want to be a part of the "whole"/majority. Why has nothing been done to show how widespread our desire to be safe is?

Just a few thought over my first cup of coffee for the day.

1. I suspect the counter protesters are following guidelines for their own protection and staying home

I did read of a counter protest by healthcare workers in Ohio a day or two after the protests in from of Dr. Actonís house. Appropriately masked and distanced between individuals.

2. By showing these small groups protesting

The media are complicit by showing this, and giving them airtime, and creating the image its a lot more people then it really is.

3. We are all protesting...

We are staying at home and defying orders to restart the economy. We are protesting by not spending money. We are protesting by being safe
