8. stubbornness and refusal to change are unfortunately big human traits it seems

Just checking our local paper and skimming the comments on ANY COVID related article is a testament to this. People just saying the same stuff over and over about how others are living in fear and the government is trying to tell us what to do and if we shut things down it hurts the economy etc ad nauseaum...

Really pisses me off that so many of my fellow "locals" refuse to be reasonable and welcome the influx of millions of tourists to our small town when we have LITERALLY less than 100 beds in our Hospital and 20K local residents. Right now they are already planning for where to find overflow capacity. oh, and only 5 ICU beds.

Even the county sheriff is full of these political hacks...they issued a statement following gov Newsom's curfew saying they would NOT be enforcing it because they "uphold the Constitution" instead... WTAF?

Personal FREEDOMS are a societal agreement as well...and certain civil freedoms become moot in the face of Public Safety. period.
Same for when there's a tornado warning or hurricaine... you see people out there driving towards the tornado screaming about their freedom to be outside?

The stupid.it burns. and unfortunately in these cases, it KILLS OTHERS, not just the idjits.
