How do you propose that all of the at-risk people be found and quarantined? Should the National Guard be dispensed to go house to house nationwide? Who should they take into custody? The at risk or the not at risk? Where should they be taken? For how long?
Should household members not at risk move out? Maybe they could erect force fields inside their homes.

It seems that the easiest, least expensive, and least intrusive is an in general quarantine. As the intelligent and mature among us were self quarantining without being told and without whining - maybe you could take your cue from them.


Let them self-select. If they're really scared, they can make arrangements with their own circle to get them food and supplies. The ones that aren't afraid or don't give a shit can do what they like.

Since when am I responsible for taking care of everyone... Besides the taxes I'm forced to pay at gunpoint?


This disease has not killed anywhere close to what the average flu season has killed. It's killing the usual suspects. Sometimes influenza kills young people just like COVID19 does. We just need to let it run it's course. Yes, you should try to protect the elderly, but other than that it's a normal diseae.

Re: Is anyones life normal right now?
Checking in from South America and things are decidedly abnormal. They not only shut down all the borders (land, sea and air) but they shut down all domestic flights as well, all buses, the metro... no one is on the road. Going out will subject you to police on a power trip questioning your motives (one person per family is allowed out and only to buy food, only for a few hours and only certain days per week).

... <snip>
 Quoting: Shaun Kaven


WE just moved back to the states after being in Central America for years (Guatemala). What I can't get over is the fact that the locals think they are hiding from like a person or something.


Also, the government of Guatemala has everyone convinced that catching Corona is a death sentence.

Is it the same there?
 Quoting: ladulce


The government is taking it seriously but most Colombians don’t think it’d a big deal. Thus the heavy handed government measures - they tried to ask people to stay home and it didn’t work. Last Monday was a holiday and loads of people tried to hit the road for a long weekend.

The government plan is: close the borders and do a mandatory, national quarantine for 20 days. The idea is that any asymptomatic cases will manifest themselves during those 20 days and they and their family can be isolated. In theory, after the 20 days everyone with the virus in the country is isolated and the virus gets stamped out.

The problem is 1) there’s too many exceptions and 2) you’d have to leave the borders closed indefinitely.

How do you propose they self select? You could be at risk. Yes, you could. What test are you going to give yourself to see if you are at risk or if you are a non-symptomatic carrier? How do know that you haven't touched something contaminated and transmitted it to someone or something else?

Tell us please, Einstein.

Be part of the solution. Not part of the problem. People like you are the reason the governments institute quarantines.

If they decide they're at risk, they can quarantine themselves, just as I stated previously. .Gov could even provide them with facilities to do so (with tax dollars provided by myself and others... at gunpoint, I might add).

I'm perfectly comfortable being at risk. I don't need a test. I've determined the risk is acceptable. I may very well be an asymptomatic carrier. Stay away from me, if you like.

I'm 100% certain I've touched something contaminated. I'm 100% certain I've transmitted it to someone or something else, just like millions of other people since around mid-January.

If you feel you're at risk or are afraid, you're perfectly welcome to hide from the rest of us. Don't impose your choices on me. What I do is none of your damn business.

This virus is already ENDEMIC. If you wanted to have everything quarantined, you missed that opportunity MONTHS ago.

Life is risky, Heisenberg.

By the way, Moon&Stars, calling me names like 'obnoxious' and questioning my maturity don't strengthen your argument one iota.

Whether or not this thing is a bio-weapon is entirely irrelevant. It is endemic. The vast majority of the world's population has already been exposed to it. You could attempt to shield yourself from it, but to propose that we can contain it at this point is pure folly.

Re: Is anyones life normal right now?
No.

Things going south.

So might as well live in the now and
forget about worrying.

:)

3 people dead in Finland by now...

and logic dictates that the virus has had at least 4, if
not 5 months already to do exactly what it wants, quite
freely, among all 5 000 000 of us

- and the whole country is shut down.

blink

I'm not saying that the virus does not exist.
Not sure that matters at bloody all.
(Except for the ones taking ill, if real.
Best wishes of hasty recovery hf )

I'm saying that it is in-your-face obvious, that something
way, way bigger than the disease itself is going on.

And I'm a bit ashamed, of what miserable pussies and bloody
push-over virtue signalers my once proud Finnish nation has
become. Accepting fucking anything, because Big Sister of
the NWO FinnSoc says so.

That is the real dread I might feel.
They will accept anything.

And no-one reflects over what it all means and what the new
normal will be. Not 1 fellow Finn.

I think we might be the most gullible (and well-meaning,
sigh) folk on the face of the Earth. A trait being taken
foul advantage of to the extreme.

Sorry for long rant on your thread...seems I can't help
myself.

peace
