    The USA proves over and over that a diet of fries and hamburgers and guns blasting next door 24/7 aren't great for intellectual thought.

    Classy of you to not miss a chance to nation bash amidst a global pandemic.

    So what was the 'Wuhan Virus'/'Chinese virus' crap that cons were engaged in then? That was pretty blatant nation bashing and scapegoating trying to be disguised as 'just being accurate'.

    And considering the US has nearly four times the confirmed cases of the runner-up, Spain, I'd say it's pretty fair to admit that the federal government screwed up big time and still is.

    I'd say most governments dropped the ball on this, from China on out. The US government deserves plenty of scorn, so slag on them, not on the American population. That's just as low as slagging on the Chinese or the Italian people rather than their governments. If one's wrong, they're all wrong.

    You didn't address my main point.

    To the best of my knowledge, the rest of the world doesn't have COVIDIOTs protesting in the streets demanding an early end to social distancing because their lives were temporarily inconvenienced in some instances (See also: The clowns who want to go to the barbers/salon, bowling alley, golfing, etc) and/or fell for right-wing AstroTurfing or at least not on the scale in the US.

    Brian Kemp is busy reopening Georgia way too early, as well. All in a desperate bid to save Trumps failed presidency and reelection bid. Not the only red state rushing things, either. All these idiots are going to to just prolong the pandemic, kill more people who shouldn't have died and prolong the lockdowns because of them creating new hotspots.

    Well its not like the government makes people flock to walmart to buy the latest goods.

    People have some responsibility by being responsible and staying at home to help fight the spread. If numbers are that high they are clearly not giving it 100% and its near impossible when you have idiots protesting for their rights.
    Comes a time when we all gotta die...even kings.

    We are just in April and already events in September, like Oktoberfest, are being cancelled:

    I hope that there will be a virtual variant and that Brewfest is unchanged!

    A virtual variant of the Oktoberfest?

    You know that's not how to look at data, right? Especially considering Spain only has about 14% of the population of the US.

    Per capita, it's actually Spain doing the worst. Then Belgium, then Ireland, then Italy, then Switzerland, then the US. With probably China up higher in there because they are likely lying about their numbers.

    You realize the nation isn't ever going to be the same after this right? A lot of jobs have been lost. While I agree rushing opening the nation will only cause more death, people have a right to protest. Besides, their bodies, their choice, right?

    It's not really their body when they spread the disease to dozens of other people.

    Not when their shitty decisions don't just harm themselves, they have the possibility that it will infect the rest of their family, then their friends, then the rest of the town. Just like when that one guy came from out of town in a small Georgia town that went to a funeral, now pretty much the entire town got sick from it.

    Because if they had either, they wouldn't be demanding the economy reopen, period.
    perhaps losing their job and business made them temporarily lose their common sense? Just a thought.

    Low cost country = your country dies over time. I wonder if they will pass anti-coperation laws.

    Sadly, the US had two oceans, time, and resources to do a lot better. It benefits us not one bit to try to pass some of the blame. The US caught the ball, broke past the defense, then fumbled the ball while doing a backflip over the goalline. Now we just got a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct for yelling at the ref for doing their job after we messed up. Man, I miss sports.

    There plenty of citizens who are being absolutely ridiculous. Remember the Spring Breakers? How about record number crowds as 'stay at home' was rolling out. Lots of people were out on St Patricks Day, 'stay at home' was official in a lot of places by then. The packet restaurants. People hoarding PPE and toilet paper? Thank God some local city councils and mayors stepped over their inactive governors. How about the people protesting against 'stay at home' and those even protesting in front of essential workplaces?

    It is bad to generalize an entire population but we can't pretend that a sizable portion is messing it up for everyone.

    There are Socialist Policies that can help people during a Crisis, instead people turn to idiotic Right Wingers and Greedy Christians/Businessman where they claim The Blood of Christ will protect them from Viruses.
    Americans are the Chinese of the west. The main reason people tolerate them is because they are too big to ignore.

    Apart from Jesus facepalming, know whats really sad about that picture? The owner, he doesn't even have to own just be the driver, it probably out there chanting "let me work'. He could easily find a job in freight right now - assuming he has a legit CDL. Transportation is up and needed. He could serve his country and President by putting that truck or his skills to good use. Instead is championing the plague...

    That is the point of the post, the guy is in a full protective gear at the same he is holding a poster dennying covid-19. Judging by the protective gear he his using he isn't dump, but since he is holding a poster dennying the stuff, he really enjoys to be called dump.
