In which I cannot with these people

This is one of those days, y’all. Everyone and everything is on my nerves and it is getting harder and harder to deal with the fact that we are governed by the worst and stupidest people among us. Like, it’s fun to yammer on about fucking Darwin Awards and some shit– some of these dumb bastards are going to die because of their stupid little protests, and they’re going to make a whole bunch of other people who are fucking smarter than them sick along the way, and if the fucking virus was somehow able to only infect the motherfuckers who deserve it we’d be fine, but it’s a fucking virus and it doesn’t work like that. Because these ignorant assholes are going to get a lot of people killed, and it’s too bad that we can’t find a way to ensure that the people get killed are all them. “Dying of coronavirus to own the libs” is supposed to be sarcastic, you bumblefucks.

Stay the fuck inside.

If you don’t want to stay the fuck inside, stay the fuck inside anyway.

Enough of this shit.

7:40 PM, Saturday April 18: 732,197 and 38,664, and– guess what– the states that don’t have stay-at-home orders are all seeing spikes in infections. You stupid fucks.

  1. Yeah, I live in Lansing. The idiots were just a couple blocks from our house and we couldn’t avoid hearing their racket. The only thing that kept me from going over there and coughing on their door handles is that I don’t want to get infected off of them.

  2. I saw an interesting article a couple weeks ago which pointed out the split in reactions to covid fit nearly perfectly along party lines, with Blue states responding by putting orders in place far earlier than Red states did. We’re seeing a form of it where I live in St. Louis MO. The StL peak is supposed to be later this week (roughly the 25th or 26th I believe) while the state as a whole isn’t projected to peak until two to three weeks later, somewhere in the vicinity of the 13th or 15th.

    St. Louis and Kansas City, Blue bastions in a Red state, put shelter-in-place orders out around the time the states of Illinois and Ohio were putting out their own shelter-in-place orders. Even before that our city had limits on gathering size for events and was strongly pushing social distancing.

    1. Indiana has been surprisingly well-governed throughout this; Holcomb has been ahead of several of the neighboring states on things like closing schools and shelter-in-place orders. I live in a bluer area of the state and in general the local governments haven’t really had any need to try and get ahead of the state so far.
