    Lol, why doesn’t that surprise me about the Dr. I hear news outlets are suing Cooper because he won’t release his covid data. He needs a good old fashion azz whoopin.

    I might’ve mentioned this in an earlier post but I can’t remember and I’m too lazy to go back to see if I did or not lol but I saw an article on Facebook not too long ago with a quote from him where he said “strong people wear masks to show compassion”. He said that AFTER he had been out marching with protesters and he wasn’t wearing a mask while he was marching with protesters.

    Sounds like something he would say, and not do. The man can’t take 30-60 minutes and meet with a gym owner(s), do a walk thru on what they would do to mitigate risks in opening? Instead he prejudged and predetermined based on HIS advisors who are all of the same political party. What a shit. He’s destroying people’s businesses and many many people’s health.
    Gym goers are people concerned about their health and are not going to be haphazard like your typical Lowe’s or Walmart shopper. Health is important to gym goers. If I owned a gym in this state...I would be in jail by now.

    More and more sherriff's departments are telling their counties that they will not enforce Cooper's restrictions. Including gyms and masks. I say if you own a gym, open up now, deal with the consequences later. There probably won't be any consequences.

    I read an article on Facebook earlier today about how NC’s Lt Governor is planning to sue Cooper and his cabinet because of some of the things he’s done and the way that he’s done things. NC’s Lt Governor is also running against Cooper in the November election, so we will most likely have a new Governor after November because most of if not all North Carolinians are sick of Cooper.

    We are finally starting to see a rise here in my small town after months of 0 cases. I think we have 12-15 confirmed here. Only thing that has changed is walmart allowing more than 1 person, 50% capacity dining, and I guess hair salons open.

    Illinois is apparently killing it, literally. Feel like our cases are plummeting, one of the best in the country. We move into Phase 4 today. Good times.

    First day of mask law. Went out to dinner. Didn't wear a mask and about 90% of the people there were also not wearing masks. #fvckyoucooper

    I saw that. Several of our counties LEO’s work out at our gym. Some BIG mofo’s too. Surprised the sheriff isn’t backing down here.

    Can’t recall if it was diehard or ghost who mentioned the health loophole earlier? Our owner sent out an e-mail saying if you get a note from a doctor who indicates you need to workout for rehab or continuing health issues, you can present it and can workout now. Limiting 15 people at a time. Mask required. Got a call into our Orthopaedic dr. I have 2 knee replacements, ongoing wrist problem, and C5-6 spinal fusion disc replacement. They call me “terminator”. Lol

    I mean, isn't a beer belly enough reason to get a doctor's prescription for excercise? Such stupidity. When will we all wake up to what is really happening here?

    That was me. I heard about it from a friend...a few of the gyms near where I live have reopened because of that loophole.

    Played hockey today with no restrictions other than you had to wear a mask into and out of the building and they had extra locker rooms open to allow distancing.

    Explain this further to me. Power and control. Honestly, I’ve heard friends say it, and I don’t really want to get political w friends, so I ask you. Power and control, how so?

    Our state has seen a stagnant number of deaths over the past week after a short spurt where 20-40 deaths per day for a 5 day period. Cases are climbing, but leveling off. Since Friday there have been 1,300 some cases added to the count, 5 deaths and the hospitalizations across the state have decreased by over 50. It's down to 845 as of 5pm.

    In our 5 county area (they have just recently changed it from a 3 county area) there have been 2,000 new cases since June 1st. 39 deaths. 35 of those deaths are between two nursing homes in Columbus county and 3 of them, ages, 88, 76 and 73 years old are out of Brunswick County with 1 being in onslow county. My county, the most populated of the 5 and the most densely populated has had 892 new cases since June 1st with zero deaths. We are testing under 4% positive in the county and right now there are less than 20 people in the hospital with covid.

    I think we're doing pretty good health wise.

    My boy is playing summer league baseball (15 and 16 year olds). Actually had his first out of the park HR his first game and threw a no hitter. The other team was terrible though, lol. It is pretty normal except only 4 kids at a time are allowed in the dugout.

    Our numbers are still pretty low here. We don't go out to a lot of places though. I do play a lot of golf though.

    I mean. It's not that big of a stretch if it is one at all. Governors across the country have been overreaching their power for months. Completely ignoring basic rights. We say it's for the greater good, and I think some actually governed for the health of their citizens. But it has been 3 months since we were told to stay home for 2 weeks to slow the spread. Many experts have said that we are not in danger of overloading the hospitals and that the majority of people will only see mild symptoms if any at all. But we still have governors keeping businesses from opening and in a lot of cases, keeping them from ever being able to run their business again.

    I’m not going to get in depth into this in this thread. I would tell you to read up on communism, or if you prefer the watered down term, socialism. Their ideals and goals and then the reality of what happens as their governments seek absolute power and control over all its people.

    Fascist governments. Nobody could speak out against the Nazi’s. They died if thy did. What has been happening on College campuses when conservatives are scheduled to speak? They’re not killed obviously, but they are banned, threatened.

    How will the US pay for an 80 trillion $$ green new deal? SS, Medicare, Medicaid, for all including illegals? A paycheck for all whether you work or not? $1,000-2,000-3,000 a month. How? Tell how this works? What happens to the 26+ trillion in 401k, IRA, etc... savings Americans have?

    Go back and talk to your friends some more. Ours schools and media have been infiltrated for decades by Russia/KGB. It’s not a question if it has happened. It has. Now China is doing similar. Educate yourself. Read and have an open mind and you’ll find the answers.

    Ask your friends about Lincoln, blacks, and Liberia. Big media suppression on this. There’s a paper trail too.

    No. I just think they have gotten a taste of power they never would have had otherwise and they are embellishing themselves with it.

    Louisville is about half masks and half no masks at this point. Maybe slight in favor of masks depending on where you go.

    I’m not wearing one at all at this point. All that matters is that golf is back to normal here as well. That’s all that matters, amiright @coryfly

    I wear em when needed cause I don’t want to be an asshole. Saying that, most places don’t require them, and I’ve seen no public shaming of those who don’t. I feel like most people are against it, but just kind of go w the flow, you know, like so many Germans in Nazi Germany. Laughing Eyeroll ;)

    It's not about protection, it's about compliance.
    joking

    Here's where I stand with masks. And let me be Facebook dramatic and say... IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH ME, UNFRIEND ME NOW!!! If I am going to a grocery store, gas station anywhere where people go to get essentials, I will respect their wishes and will wear a mask. No problem. But if I am outside, going to a restaurant or at the beach. F yo mask. If you are going out for leisure activities, you know the risks. It is not my job to make sure you don't get sick. We take risks every day. If wearing a mask makes you feel comfortable, go right ahead. If me not wearing a mask makes you uncomfortable, stay the hell away from me.

    I know it looks like I am directing all that to you, but I am speaking rhetorically.

    Where did I mention ANY political party? Show me? I mentioned conservatives. There are establishment Democrats and Republicans. Not much difference, or at least there wasn’t. Left wing radical Democrats. Right wing ultra conservatives and Libertarians.

    I’m comparing Nazi’s/Fascists to anyone, either party, who refuses to let the other side express their views. Freedom of Speech? Have you heard of it?? Fascists are adept at preventing dissenting views from being heard.

    The indoctrination of America into communism/socialism has been long, slow, and steady. FYI until 2 years ago I was a registered Democrat. Conservative Democrat. I am now a registered Independent. The Democratic Party now, is not the one I knew years prior.

    Now on climate change??? Google the unbiased study that was done several years ago on the placement of weather stations used to record temperatures. It was done by volunteers. Strictly done to locate where these stations are/were located. They were able to record over 1,600 locations in the US out of about 1,800-1,900.

    Open your mind and quit watching the bullshit you see on TV only to form your opinions. The media is corrupt.

    just opened back up. deaths are dropping to 2-3 per day of the known cases 17,000 give or take have recovered.

    the only spike going on is the new cases discovered thru expanded testing and nothing more

    Got my 1st workout in today. So the gym sends out an e-mail...need a doctors note, gotta wear a mask inside, we’ll give you a bottle of sanitizer and a clean towel.

    My wife and I get there. We’re the only ones with a mask. Nobody said they had to show. Doctor’s note, and one guy had a bottle of sanitizer and towel. I’m like so WTF. The employee at the counter says, we’ll the rules change practically every day. They do have sanitizer and paper towels on the walls.

    Yours truly was the only one who wore a mask. Even my wife stuck hers in her pocket. Took it off on the cardio machines tho. Only 10-12 people in the gym during our allotted 1 1/2 hour time slot. Ah... life goes on.
