I know it's a bit of a segway but gun laws only apply to law abiding citizens. Criminals still have and can still get access to all sorts of interesting things if you have the the money and the will to break the law and the cops know it.
This is true but it leaves a much smaller zone to surveil. There's always exceptions

I'm glad we don't have a significant gun culture. There's no law for that. The one thing that nanny's me a little is airsoft. Paintball gone next level. I wish I could make it a hobby. There are some stellar examples of progressive, gun culture free countries in Europe doing just this

CHICAGO – A Chicago Teachers Union leader is facing criticism for vacationing in the Caribbean while at the same time claiming it’s unsafe for teachers to return to the classroom.

Sarah Chambers is on the union’s executive board and is an area vice president.

As recently as Thursday, she tweeted to rally special education teachers not to return to work Monday because it’s unsafe.

Just a few hours earlier, Chambers posted a picture on Instagram that appears to show her pool side in Puerto Rico and talking about going to Old San Juan for seafood.

The post also mentions she previously had COVID, got a negative test result and consulted her doctor before traveling.

Both Chambers and the Chicago Teachers Union have not responded to WGN’s request for comment. Since we have reached out, Chambers has deleted her Instagram account.

The CTU is threatening the possibility of a strike if the district pushes ahead with plans to reopen school buildings.

What is the connection between her going to Puerto Rico and claiming it's unsafe for teachers to return to the classroom? She had consulted with her doctor prior to travel so one would assume that she went to a safe place.

No Mask, no worries.
Governor Kristi Noem

Despite the fact that lockdowns do enormous amounts of economic damage, they’ve proven to be almost completely ineffective at stopping the coronavirus. One of the governors that understood this early on was South Dakota’s Kristi Noem. Noem was savagely criticized by liberals that pointed to the tiny state’s high rate of infection as evidence that she needed to shut everything down. However the state has only had a grand total of 1488 coronavirus-related deaths and yesterday, they had a mere 444 new cases. Meanwhile, unlike many liberal states that aggressively shut down their businesses, South Dakota’s economy hasn’t been decimated this year.

More misinformation from Mr. Knowphuckall. That OPINION claiming to be a fact is the exact opposite of reality. Your ignorance is very dangerous because you try to spread it to others like you are a separate viral infection vector of mutated Covidiocy.

Covid_GDP-DEATH_2020Q3.jpg


This data is now over two months old and the differences it showed then are even more obvious today. The few countries that applied a science-based approach that focused on health outcomes, closed their borders, and successfully completed short, sharp lockdowns are the only countries that are now experiencing any economic growth. If they financially supported businesses, subsidised wages, actively encouraged replacing foreign tourism with domestic tourists who holidayed onshore instead of offshore and welcomed 10s of thousands of expats back inside their closed borders along with the money and entrepreneurial skills they possessed, their economies not only survived - they flourished. Those nations that focused on preserving their economies ahead of their peoples lives ("herd immunity" fallacy) have experienced, and are still experiencing, shrinking economies while their health systems collapse under pressure and their unemployment levels rise as more and more businesses close due to the burden imposed by stop/go of increasing restrictions placed (too late) cause the populace to become afraid to venture out and they stop spending money if they have any or they are no longer able to earn any.

Even Australia which thought they were being very cautious and having a safe bet each way have been bitten on the arse at the Victoria/NSW border with people now panicking and being trapped for 14 days on the wrong side by bureaucracy ironically moving faster than the speed limit.

Lockdowns save lives AND the economy stupid.
Dead people don't earn or spend money.
People who are afraid of dying and have no job don't go out spending money.

Actually dead people are most of the time in their 70's plus when they die from coronavirus. They're in retirement and their money would be passed down to their relatives who would likely spend more of it.

Any compassion for the older generations? Hope your parents or grandparents don't die from this virus because you'll get little sympathy here. Oh, that's right, they won't because our countries locked down and have fairly much eliminated the virus so they are safe!

I do have compassion. I was just pointing out a fact not endorsing that people should let older people die.

Do you have children? I bet they are looking forward to when you become old and they can knock you off for the money.

Maybe all the older people who died left their money to charities, or the dog
