Of course yesterday's speech says the darker colors will have priority, right after the elites, mind you...
Even if that is true.. I hope that it is well under control.

We will see... nothing is a given of course.

I guess you could say there are only two kinds of people when it comes to wearing masks.

I guess the only people wearing masks are those that are considerate, whether they care about others or not? Perhaps they just don't want a ticket and are considerate to laws and don't believe masks are effective at all?

Or perhaps they are ignorant for believing masks actually do work?

Or perhaps they are genuinely selfish and wear a mask that only protects themselves?

Obviously the comment is designed as an insult to a certain group by labeling them as either ignorant or selfish.

Here is something interesting about wearing masks though, and you can get the gist of it by skimming half way down:

You're referring to "10 mile" hairpin at the bottom of the hill, or the Dead Man's Curve hairpin, closer to Skyline?

Either way, they are both left handers when you're going in the other direction.


By the way Pinehurst was way better in the 60s, when it was carpeted with electric paisleys, kaleidoscopic redwood trees laughing hysterically as you rode by.

Without quoting anyone or starting shit, I'm not surprised that 25% of the people asked believes some kind of lie or conspiracy about Covid19 and face masks.
https://www.healthline.com/health-ne...about-covid-19

I would have guessed that it was the 40% of Americans who watch a particular cable channel.

Of course they say that 73.45% of all statistics are made up by some 400lb guy lying on his bed in Belarus.

Also have seen reporting that Sturgis attendees have been connected to clusters of new cases.

In my opinion: People have an obligation to take the best available measures to avoid being a disease vector.

It's the patrioic, moral and reasonable thing to do in a pandemic that has already claimed over 200k lives, that we know of, and it's not even close to being done.

Now there are 451,000.

Nice try though.
But someone said we "turned a corner" with "Herd Mentality". And it's only 200,000, that we know of. That's as if everyone in Rochester, New York, or Richmond Virginia died.
So if every 7 months 200,000 people die of a preventable, controllable disease, people must think that's an acceptable situation. After all we wouldn't want to have the people in the house on Pennsylvania Ave to be embarrassed.

No wonder Americans aren't welcome in the UK, New Zealand, the EU, and Canada....and that country to our immediate South.

Again, why dance around it. Or, is this is your way of thinking youíre clever enough to slip politics into an area you know is off limits?

Based on the sheer numbers of folks who are resisting wearing a mask during a pandemic makes me rethink using anything that's communally touched (gas pumps, ATM keypads, POS card readers, etc) because some of these dirty motherfuckers are the people who sneeze / scratch their unwashed assholes / touch their dirty junk and then put hands on things. Like cash, too.

Fucking A, wearing moto gloves full time is probably the way to go. The ones with carbon fiber knuckles will help in a fight when the anti-masker idiots get aggressive. So far I've only seen aggressively passive-aggressive, but never underestimate stupid.


Blown out of proportion? I dunno. Wear a condom, folks. People are fucking DIRTY.
