No need to social distance since I don't know anybody who has the coronavirus

Quotes from Jacksonville residents at Cinco de Mayo gathering yesterday! The stupid comments begin approximately 1:20 seconds in.



"I don't even know anybody who even knows anybody who's had that virus..."

It's going to be a long year... 🤦

1. Well,

With that kind of behavior and ignorance, there is an answer to that.

"You will. You will. It won't take too long."

2. Hard to have a positive attitude when so many

of us are so stupid.

3. Longer for some than for others, I'm afraid.

Whenever someone says, "the stupid, it burns!," I think to myself how wonderful it would be if it only burned the stupid themselves.

Just think: if a Democratic or liberal figure--let's say, Michelle Obama--had gone on teevee and said she wanted the American people to refrain from jamming utensils into electrical outlets, I could've made a fortune selling copper "forks" to Republicans and the nation would be far better off today. The lingering smell of burning back hair would have been worth it.

7. If I were a health care professional in any of the states that are opening up, and I saw this

My blood would run cold.

It's one thing to care for people who get the virus through no fault of their own--at the beginning, when nobody knew what was going on, or when they tried to be careful but just get unlucky standing next to the wrong person on the bus, or when they were an essential worker who had to weigh their job against their life--but the idea of taking care of these STUPID MAROONS who think that, just because it hasn't affected them yet, it never will and never could would absolutely infuriate me.

Why should health care workers risk their lives--and in all likelihood develop PTSD, many of them anyway--to save people who deliberately went out and endangered other people in the middle of a pandemic FOR TACOS??? It's so unfair.

Everything sucks.

9. Hell, a nurse was out there! She thinks "herd immunity"

is the best way to go.

Not sure how well she would do if she were to contract the virus, not to mention the risk of infecting patients...

17. You bought into curve flattening?

You got herd immunity in the small print of the contract you signed.

Unless a vaccine comes along first, which is a huge, huge "if".

The alternative is suppression--some have called it "crushing the curve"--leading to containment. People talk like that's going to be easy.

I'm still waiting for my flying car, it should have been here 20 years ago. Wonder if the USPS lost it?

16. It is amazing. The same people who vote for people that would

freely torture Mexican immigrants to death for crossing our border for work, celebrate a Mexican independence holiday, and want undocumented immigrants to pack the meat and vegetables that get shipped to local supermarkets. The blindness, and callousness is stunning.

10. I am from there

And I try to stay far from there.

I had to watch that to see if I knew any of them. Hell, I could have been related to some of them.

I think the woman at the end was holding up a Q so that tells you how good her reasoning skills are.

And the nurse...God help us.

I do not miss it.

13. There's a longer learning curve on COVID than one might expect.

The culling of the herd will continue. It's a damned shame, though, that it takes too many good people along with it.

"Long year" indeed.

18. The thing is, there's no evidence that the virus respects IQ, politics, or culture.

And if there's no vaccine soon enough, transmission will slow.

15. The woman who talked about the models being wrong.

The original estimates were based upon people acting like those people at that restaurant, lockdowns and social distancing caused them to be much, much lower than they would have been in the absence of those actions.
