Just a friendly reminder:

To all those conservatives readily accepting stimulus money, loan deferments, restructured retirement account rules, student loan assistance, free healthcare testing and other assistance from the government:

This is the kind of assistance so often mocked and argued. This is the assistance that approaches a socialist model that also keeps you and your fellow citizens' heads barely above water. This is the assistance you wanted to take from those who've always needed it because they should "take care of their own."

What a remarkable shift in perspective happens in times of need.

Reminds me of the woman carrying a sign at a right-wing protest a few years ago:

[b]Government Hands Off My Social Security![/b]
@windinhishair It’s amazing to see someone who so clearly is [b]clueless[/b]. 😒

@bijouxbroussard And yet, there are millions around the country who are just as clueless. And one in the White House.
Oh, but it’s always “different” when it’s [b]them[/b] on what they’d otherwise describe as “the government’s teat”, isn’t it ?
Like their idol Ayn Rand when it is their turn to collect their ideology gets suddenly fuzzy.

@SteelHands I certainly don't know what language you're speaking.

Please, if you're having a stroke, call 911.

@JT123 leading us to our deaths. DT has been real good at doing that.

@JT123 Troll or bot. But you're truly too willfully ignorant or functionally retarded to be real. Try again.

@SteelHands The government is helping you subsist. You are accepting government assistance. No difference.

And the list of exemptions to stay-at-home orders are extensive enough to make the orders themselves utterly useless. I just printed out my state's and it's three full pages of exemption in 12-pt. font. Office products workers, landscapers, tire stores, pet stores, ANY household good, ANY clothing, notary publics, administrative support, dry cleaners, appliance repair and, of course, ANY big box store and all public transit. All exempt, all spreading disease freely. Nobody's doing their part around here. There was more traffic driving to work than there is on normal days.

Communism is garbage to you. But make no mistake - you are a socialist now. (And no one mention communism to begin with.)

@SteelHands The differences are numerous and significant. But you can't see that in a haze of ignorance.

This country is confiscating absolutely nothing, so the entire argument is moot.

You go on thinking that improperly using the wrong masks and gloves will be "okay." Keep thinking that it's no effect on you that others practice poor hygiene or risk the health of many for the need to make that 17$. The function of a pandemic is to thin the herd. That means the weakest among us, intellectually and physically. More air for the rest of us.

@JT123 you must have never heard of Fox News.
