Quoted from cnuts13:
.... I say wear it if you want . and leave me alone if my lack of a mask kills your grandma, too bad
C'mon now guys!
That bit from cnuts13 is out of line, and it may be fair for cottonm4 to reply that way. I might say GFY too!
But, cnuts is using unlikely assumptions that have unreasonable favor, from in here. Like "... IF my lack of a mask kills..." ... No, not "if", Grandma will die of cv19 infection that she will get, or not die, depending on Health and factors such as Obesity or Underlying Existing Conditions. Extremely unlikely cnuts will impact the death of a grandma by wearing a mask or not. First part of cnuts being out of line is assuming his mask wearing would have some massive impact on preventing grandmas infection, or how a grandmas body might deal with cv19. It isn't even really an "IF", or close to it.
No it wouldn't be right to "not care" about killing, Anyone!. Point is, he Is Not wantonly killing anyone. Covid and Poor Health is what is killing grandmas. It is doing that because (all, group, not just cnuts) people cant stop spreading it, and not all are fit and healthy. It is highly infectious after all, and as screaminr suggested with his post the other day, alot of medicos IN FULL GEAR still contracted it anyway as well.
Back someone into a false corner, and they may well have a go!
So it's out there, killing only a few, those with ill health, obesity, or underlying conditions. That's all. Yes it is a tragic part of life. Death.
So, assumptions vs assumptions. Negativity breeds negativity. Bad information allows for division. More Division means more conflict, more abuse and hostility. Then return hostility...
Just .... take some breaths and everyone try to be respectful as we can! ... Please!
