If so, why repeatedly point it out?


Indeed, repeating points and questions ad nauseum is quite irritating.

I believe I mentioned it once, then restated in response to your question. I am content to leave it at that.

And your point is?......Just who exactly do those red hats bother?

So, if you are "bothered" by a red hat. whose issue is that?


I'm not bothered with them at all. In fact, I appreciate the advanced warning of the type of person I might be forced to interact with. You know, a loud mouth, immigrant hating, science denying, cult member that thinks wearing a mask is a sign of liberal weakness. I usually try to avoid them, but I appreciate the warning in the event that I'm forced to interact with them.

Beats me. For the life of me I can't figure out what the Redhats' problem is.

Iím confused - do you see wearing a Trump hat as ďa message of support for the presidentĒ or an indication of fanaticism? Most of your post says itís simply Trump fans supporting their guy (which I would agree with), then at the end see it as fanaticism
could be misunderstanding
all good & welcome aboard!

I suppose you are right. Every time I see someone goose-stepping around downtown I gotta admit I have a prejudiced reaction, I think man that is a frekin nazi, but it could just be a disability of some kind, or simply a funny walk.

We should only interpret the red hat as meaning support for the President, nothing more nothing less. I donít see any reason to look more into it than that. But to wear attire to show support of a sitting U.S. President would indicate a symptom of fanaticism, IMO. But I think it is misguided of the left to immediately associate a red hat with racism or anything of the sort.


Boynton Brother, what is up!

Last gasps and death throes of a dying paradigm. They won't go out with dignity, they are going to try to tear it all down on their way out. Gonna get messy.

They are going DOWN. We are witnessing the demise of that nefarious society of Bitter Old Nazi Evil Redhats (BONER).

Their day is done. HALLELUJAH.

Here in the Golden Isles - pretty much everything has opened to original capacity. Some business (notably some restaurants) have actually started to take it upon themselves to re-close after several staff tested positive for Covid.

I have done (at least) my part to support several of my favorites - including regularly ordering take-out and over-tipping. Just yesterday (Father's Day) I visited my absolute favorite place (pick-up to go). I was astounded! EVERY table and booth filled beyond capacity. Folks lined up like sardines and pushing like a locomotive to get it. Even wearing a mask - it just didn't feel safe.

Looks like the tourists are here in full force. For the rest of the summer, I'm letting them support the restaurants.

Illinois got hit hard early .... now we are the only state to actually follow the CDC guidelines for opening up and our numbers are going down. We are starting phase 4 this Friday - which will open up a lot more stuff, including dining indoors (with limitations). Almost every place here requires a mask - and compliance has been pretty good by where I live..... we'll see what this next phase brings.

South Florida has gone backwards a bit. Some restaurants are more packed than others, especially if it's closer to a bar than a restaurant since bars are still not open. Some are back to featuring live music. Breweries are open, however, which is a loophole in their classification as a manufacturer where you can sample. Some are being careful by wearing masks and limiting occupancy, other establishments have rolled the clock back to February.

Meanwhile, cases are back up. Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties are back to either requiring masks in public or are considering it in an effort to get case numbers back in decline without closing businesses that only just re-opened. None of that bodes well for bars that are eager to re-open.

A while ago someone posted a comment something like -

Sadly, that person was wrong.
It's happening

I got home a couple days ago from a nearly 2 week trip to Colorado.

When I left Ohio was near their low point for 7 day, 14 day and 21 day rolling average case count increases (380, 399 and 427). Now, Ohio has nearly matched our high case count increases in the respective averages (872, 745, 632). Big turn around! Our all time 7-day average new case count high was April 21 at 920. The current is less than 50 off that. Our 14-day average of 745 is the new high and our 21-day average is just 30 off of our May 8th record high. After 26 straight days of lower hospitalization rates, Ohio now has seen 6 days in a row with increasing admissions, current average is +18 a day. Similarly with ICU beds statewide, we had experienced an even longer drop in ICU use, but now are averaging about 3-5 new ones a day. Although statewide hospitalizations and ICU use are still very much below their peaks currently (724 currently hospitalized vs 1110 peak, 244 currently in ICU vs 524 peak).

Data in my county looks to be holding steady, about 12 new cases a day and 2.5 new hospitalizations a day which aren't too much higher than a couple weeks ago.

While I get my arms around these figures, I will be very very curious what happens in the county in which I visited in Colorado.

The summer season tourist traffic is booming! My local friends think it may actually be busier than ever as more people from the front range Denver/Colorado Springs area are vacationing closer to home in their own state rather than traveling abroad then there is the typical Texas and Arizona part-timers and vacationers there as well. From local news stories: An ATV and Jeep rental company says their June business is up 46% from 2019. A rafting company says that some of their group contracts with youth groups were canceled, but they are seeing more family booking than before. A bicycle rental company says they are busier than they ever planned to be. One bike rental owner said he wished he would've taken out a loan in February to buy every bike he could so he had more to rent now! He's booked up and sold out.

As I had said before, mask usage and distancing in Colorado is much more prevalent then what I see here in Ohio.

This rural mountain area has only seen about 80 coronavirus cases to date, vast majority of which are linked to a nursing home. Statewide Colorado appears to be experiencing only a modest increase in cases right now. Will the summer season keep it that way?

Kind of sad that you choose to see it that way. But hey, your call, right?

Went out to dinner for the 1st time last night. Sat outside. It was great. Wait staff wore masks, we did walking in and out.

Things are stable in MA and NH. We opened up slowly, we wear masks. I think that makes a big difference
There are no guarantees that it wonít get worse again.
I like to think that the approach that we took to this, although painful, made a difference
