    1. Most people are wearing masks, despite our feelings about it. I did see quite a few individuals ignoring “social distancing” requests as they looted, rooted and then celebrated Joe’s win though. Apparently as long as you’re doing left wing things, you can’t get the ‘Rona.

  1. I posted this yesterday, and I will keep posting this as long we have an incompetent government which does not want to keep its citizens safe!!!!!
    New record numbers every day!!!! How many citizens are we going let get sick, and how many are we going let die? It really is as simple as that.
    However, let me try to understand the logic of the State response to the surging pandemic: Stage 5 is okay. Our focus, per Dr. Box, is to increase the amount of healthcare staff and healthcare capacity to take care of the increasing number of sick people. Oh by the way, please wear you mask, pretty please!! (I love it when Health Commissioner, who recently got over COVID-19 episode, has only this to offer to curb the raging pandemic in our State.
    As I have said before our State needs outside expertise (e.g. Dr. Anthony Fauci) to tell us citizens the REAL status of our State’s current plan to mitigate the pandemic of our State. The current “experts” from State outside of government (e.g. IU) have done little more than to create a bunch of numbers that are totally not understood by the common lay person.
    There needs to a ground swell of outrage from the medical community (i.e. hospital, physicians, medical organizations, nursing organization, pharmacists, etc.) to force a change in how our State is handling the pandemic.
    The State has the money to finance, through the Care ACT, to fund a more comprehensively plan to provide all the necessary tools (PPE, testing, contact tracing, etc.) to get the situation under control.
    A responsible government would be able to balance the economy AND public health. Indiana appears not to be able to multi-task. A responsible State government would be able to do both. (As a small business owner, I have lost at least 50% of my income for the year. I know the financial consequences of the pandemic. It took months as the beginning to obtain the necessary amount of PPE to keep my employees and customers safe. I have been able to keep the staff intact as well. However, one does not know what the future will bring)
    Hopefully, with the election over for the State, our local leaders will begin to multi-task. Frankly, I do not expect any progress. With the flu season beginning and with more indoor events, we need to expect that things are just going to get worse.
    Everyone for our State should realize that our current situation was avoidable. Letting things get worse by this State’s administration is UNCONSCIONABLE and INDEFENSIBLE.
    Everyone should re-watch the scene from “NETWORK” where Peter Finch gives a speech that still resonates today. Here is the YOUTUBE link:

    1. And I’ll keep posting this; be responsible for yourself. If you’re that worried, stay home and let the rest of us make our own choices.

  2. Everyone can make choices. Some are considerate and some are not. Democracy at its best. One hopes that most would consider the well being of others and do just a bit for the common good. Is celebration a left wing activity? Is ignoring reality a right wing activity? Is illness left or right? More outrageous generalizations and insults and misinformation is what the nation does not need.

    1. No one said celebrating was left-wing. Celebrating a Biden presidency in the streets is, though. And reality is that this is a disease. A disease with a 0.3% mortality rate. And diseases exist. It doesn’t go back in Pandora’s box. Time to love on. That’s reality. Misinformation is locking down and screaming that the sky is falling. And yes, it’s important to note. And it absolutely is political.

    2. If you don’t think it’s media-sponsored and political, just look at how the media has ignored labeling any of the street parties “potential super spreader” events. I’m not even a trump voter and it’s obvious the implicit bias.
