Taverns to rescue!

Yep! People are flocking to bars in Wisconsin to spread the virus amongst the drunks! I donít doubt there is a rise in cases in Wisconsin & that will be on Wisconsin Supreme Court! Just because the GOPers of Wisconsin donít like their governor!

1. We just got our development results back in lake county Florida

Out of 1,000 tests only 1 positive. Thatís encouraging considering at least 85 percent were over 55.

2. Wisconsin is among the top ten alcohol-drinking states.

Drink up, GOP cheeseheads. Just don't bring your drunken, virus-infested selves across the border to my side.

7. They can go to Iowa instead.

We don't want them in Illinois either.

3. A bar would be the last place I'd go

When people have a few drinks they start to feel warm and fuzzy and throw caution to the wind, feeling invincible, getting up in each other's faces, hugging, kissing, singing old songs, dancing... until that fifth or sixth drink when things turn ugly. Then they are shouting and spitting in each other's faces over stuff that happened twenty years ago.

5. Exactly

And then expecting they can just go to their nearest emergency room and get the virus "treated." Can't wait to see how many establishments end up getting sued by the very same people that wanted this.

6. It's a small minority, even in Wisconsin, who are wanting things to open up.

The majority of people in Wisconsin have better sense.

8. If it were several decades ago..

I'd be lined up at the door. The first thing that came to mind when things closed down, was the bars. My god, no bar to go to...for weeks? I could see people hanging in the kitchen or the liquor room...just like where we did lines. And, if you were good with the local cops, you could get away with it. If given a choice..it would've been 'we all die some day'. That is the essence of the selfishness of an alcoholic/addict. You can't think of others when you don't think at all.

10. I read an article today.

Last edited Thu May 14, 2020, 10:16 PM - Edit history (2)

A Virologist who was also an Epidemologist took a flight home to New Orleans. He saw that the flight was packed and thought about getting off the plane. He wore a mask, gloves and wiped everything down and even changed gloves. He came down with covid19 soon after arriving home, like two days later. The guy is an expert, he believes that he contracted SARS-COV-2 on the flight via his eyes. I have ordered a pair of wrap-around safety glasses, did that last week well before I read the article today. I will always wear a mask and goggles while out, spray everything down with 91% alcohol when I get home, including the goggles and mask, spray my hands, clean the bottle and then wash my hands thoroughly with warm water and soap. The long aside has two purposes, first, the eyes may be a path for SARS-COV-2 to enter a person. Second, you don't know who is infected, there is no reason to take a chance with anyone.

As far as people going to bars, you can't control that. Just don't go yourself. What you can control somewhat is your defense against incidentally contracting SARS-COV-2. That is all you can do. Hopefully the bar was full of MAGATS, if a progressive was there, that person needs his or her head examined. Just protect your self against people that got infected there and come across you. Don't assume that any part of your body is safe from SAR-COV-2.

11. +1000

Thank you for the heads up. Flying is still not safe. Gathering in crowded spaces is still not safe. Why are people having such a hard time understanding this?

12. Unfortunately, some people only learn by getting hurt.

Some of the people not wearing a facemask in honor of Trump will likely be dead in a few months. My position is I am not going to let them take me with them without putting up a fight, I want that fight to be from ahead of the eightball, not from laying in a hospital bed fighting for my life.

13. That's harsh for the Virologist who was so careful..

but on a compact cabin of a plane.. if someone had it.. there's not much chance because it can be spread through our eyes.

I've been reading that all along.

Good on you, Blue_true, covering your eyes with goggles, too. Thank you for the reminder.

14. When I have read about them from historical accounts,

killer diseases all seemed to have one thing in common, they found several points of entry into a person. So much is unknown about this current virus that it's scary.

17. Contact tracing, social distancing, and testing are for stupid losers!

We are winning! So much winning!
