    Yeah, honor system, it was there when they stormed the Capitol, when people got shot in public places by lunatics, or stabed or driven over with cars. The honor system was dropped since the age of times when it was opportune for people. I want to wait until you have a cure of this illness.

    Using common sense there is people still getting covid even fully vaccinated ! Let them go around coughing at grocery stores and spread it since they are fully vaccinated. Cdc when covid started said mask were not needed and that did extremely well !lol cdc seems like a joke .

    Trevor Noah has a networth of $100,000,000.00. He's in the 1%. I'm gonna bet he doesn't donate 99% of his money, and live on $1,000,000.00, which btw, is 20 years at $50,000. Aka...a "living wage".

    More Fake News.... from fake journalists, with a political agenda. We can thank the Biden supporters, who stopped at nothing to elect this inept, corrupt, leftist politician, and his socialist administration. In just a short period of time, they have totally ruined the economy; opened our borders to gangs and many drug pins, and made a mockery and joke of our foreign policy. It was never about "the people", but about their own agenda and ideology. The American people who voted for this man, are beginning to wake up and realize that they didn't receive what they thought they were getting when voting for him.

    If the food service industry actually paid its workers a living wage, then people would take these jobs. But it doesn't, so they don't. It's not rocket science, and certainly not because people are just "lazy".


    I am very sorry for those that act in fear. If you have already been vaccinated,and yet still wear mask,what was the point of the vaccine in the first place. Anyways here in Cameroon,guys are recovering from Corona without even taking drugs. Only by drinking hot herbal teas and inhaling steam. I really hoped people did not buy into the fear. That is worst part. That is what really kills. I will mention though that all those who die here in cameroon are those who already had major health problems before being infected with corona.

    BTW, unemployment requires that you look for a job to be on it and you have to prove that you're looking for jobs. Clearly these Republicans who've never worked a real job wouldn't know that.

    Health problems that they can't afford due to always standing and walking around during work Rent they can't afford, student debt looming behind them and a constant emotional distress at work Or a different job, not as much health problems, perhaps pay of some of that debt and atleast have a chance of a decent life. Even your pet would know the answer:)

    Here in Europe we're still wearing masks even those loads of people are vaccinated. Why? One, there's no way to see who in public is or isn't vaccinated. Two, there is a small chance vaccinated people can pass covid to unvaccinated people. It makes obvious sense.

    First step of rolling back the mask mandate should be to skip masks when outdoors, but to keep them on indoors (except in your own home of course).

    You should really look at gas station attendants! We had to go to work with the public EVERYDAY OF THE STAYATHOME ORDERS. Did you know that some of the companies told the workers they were simply lucky to not have their hours cut? We never got emergency pay, literally NO raise in sight for any reason, no bonus. Not even a shirt that says risking it for the biscuit (Bojangles). Just told that we were essential while being yelled at and cussed out everyday by customers while having 2 hours worth of cleaning added to the daily duties with no kind of acknowledgement from anyone. But everyone was able to come n get gas or cigs or lottery or drinks whenever they wanted during all of it.

    also, a lot of people are waking up to the facts that these huge companies were getting stimulus, while the family owned small businesses were forced to close down. which, like the repubs like to point out...trickle down to the people that make the most money... the competition for the higher wage jobs is steep, and more and more 40+ in age are realizing that their skill sets dont matter, because most places wont hire them anyways, due to age (which will never be admitted to) and because they are overqualified, and wont work for pennies like the younger workers will.
