Earlier this or maybe it was end of last year I had to go to a clinic for some unrelated reason and the one guy was absolutely insisting I get tested for covid which I didn't feel was necessary at the time for some reason. This guy had worked in the hospital and dealt with this shit all year and I distinctly remember him telling me how he just had a guy die who was around my age not too long ago. Guy was apparently 36 years old, fairly healthyI'm a heavy smoker with high BP so I already know if I got put in the ICU the same jackasses telling me I'm young and healthy with nothing to worry about would then say "oh well he is heavy smoker with high BP he had pre-existing conditions"
and he's dead. I could tell that the guy was trying to be medical professional tier clinical but he was trying to hide how upset he was about it. These guys also have the stressful job of being trapped in there in this alternate horrible nightmare reality that's hidden away from most people so they don't think it exists.
So yes, sitting there smoking outside thinking about things a few days ago I thought about how I saw it in that context. Masks are a lot like drinking and driving. If I am out in public I don't see the problem people telling me to wear one.then society gollapsed :-DD
I've had to hide how drunk I am to not get thrown out of places before, and been thrown out before. If you are acting like some Karen there's a reason people are mocking you and that is because you're acting like an asshole. I don't think any of these people realize that yeah, you're the one acting like an asshole.
Wearing a mask for ten minutes is not the end of the world and has nothing to do with freedom, it works, and the clusterfuck that was our response and the general cancer of American politics is why it's even an issue, all of which I ignored since the start, and ignored both the retardslike on /pol/
who were saying either it's just a flu or the retards insisting it would reinfect us until humanity was extinct. I followed it and I took my own precautions. I ignored whatever the hell CDC or Trump or Pelosi or WHO or China was saying, did my own research, and concluded that the mask shortage was partly why they were trying to stop us from hoarding them. I wondered if the vaccine shortage also was why they had something to lie about so they made a bunch of us believe not to take them, or had some retarded political reason, and then I went to a mass-vax site for middleclass people and got the Pfizer because I thought the other vaccines were for poor people. I wore a mask, and in densely packed areas a p100 respirator. I don't like getting the flu or a cold either, and had neither since 2019 afaik.
So you guys can go back to your pointless political shitposting but no, it's like smoking and drunk driver far as I see it. There's no reason for me to be coughing around a bunch of kids and old people or blowing cigarette smoke at them, or drinking and driving like a complete retard, all of which I know could kill me too. Beyond that, I am not willing to blow a month's rent on an ambulance bill that insurance doesn't cover, or getting hospitalized a couple nights because that is fucking expensive, and I already know what having a non-lethal but debilitating illness feels like too and I'm having none of that. If you guys want to act like retards and put yourselves at risk to a virus whose longterm effects frankly none of us knows about that is your business. You may think a mask is pointless, or a vaccine will turn you into a mutant, you're wrong, but that is your business.
What you do not have the right to do however is act like an asshole in public and be the kind of rude bydlo to people that spawns memes, and if you do, you should not be surprised people are act like assholes back to you. As to vaccines, no the government does not have the right to tell us that per se, I'm not sure how to feel about enforced polio or measles vaccines on kids, but exterminating smallpox was the right thing to do regardless of methods. With masks it's like smoking and drinking and driving, do it at home, just not around families, but ultimately you're just being plebeian and superstitious peasants about it all as usual in my opinion. Just trying to make this into some cancerous political thing is also a really stupid hill to die on out of all the other valid things to get upset about. So that is my view on all this.>>58982

What? You're right. Everything you say is right. I don't have an interest in arguing, just giving my view on it. Not really my problem right now.
