So why must I wear a mask if Fauci says this?? I hate masks.

“Schools in our country should be opened ASAP. Much very good information now available,” Donald Trump tweeted on the eve of Memorial Day as the U.S. coronavirus death toll approached 100,000. He tagged both @FoxNews and host Steve Hilton because the “very good information” the president of the United States was receiving and passing onto the American people came directly from that Sunday night show on Fox. 

Get on with it and reopen schools now before you do even more needless damage!” Hilton urged on his broadcast shortly before Trump’s tweet. He proceeded to rail against “stupid regulations” like “totally pointless” temperature checks and “completely arbitrary social distancing rules.”

It’s clearly better to go with the experts at Fox News that have all proudly served under the last six administrations, including Reagan, both Bushes and Trump.  By the way, Dr. Fauci was actually appointed director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases by Ronald Reagan in 1984, when he was a sprightly 43 years old.

Why exactly would he be out to kill Greg by deliberately providing him with bad health advice?   What would possibly be his motivation?

We still have 24 states trending upwards, places like Miami, Houston, Dallas and Southern California are projected to have 1,000+ deaths PER AREA around July 1st...but, it’s all basically over because Trump went out to play golf again?

You are exactly who Russian bots are targeting. I know facts don’t matter to you. Why should they, but here is fact checking your video.and just remember the last time Fauci was seen with Trump, he was wearing a mask . You are  a danger to society.

I don't know what Greg really believes, but I don't care if his hair is too long or that he doesn't like wearing a mask. All I know is that the country is going through hell right now. That is one thing I can say for certain. And there are people who are trying to help, or at least trying to adapt the best way they can. And then there are those who in denial and remain in denial no matter how high the death count goes.

One sure way to help, hang your governor in effigy outside his mansion.

Quote John Wilkes Booth, “sic semper tyrannis” (and thus to tyrants...err....Abraham Lincoln, also a native Kentuckian.)

Then there was this lovely quote.  “This has been one of the biggest shams in world history,” Christman said. “Grown men have been hiding in (their) homes nearly wetting their pants over this invisible enemy that nobody sees. Where is it at? Let it come out and face us. I serve the one true and living God who conquers all enemies. Why should we give our freedom and our liberties up for such fear (and) propaganda and all the garbage that is coming out of Frankfort today?

Who calls it the invisible enemy nearly every day?  Can’t recall...

Yeah I’m starting to be done with his shit. He doesn’t listen to anyone, keeps reiterating the same points, whines incessantly and seems to come on here for affirmation about his positions. It’s a free country and he’s just one man, so he can freely do what he wishes and his views aren’t representative of everyone else in his camp. It’s also not worth having a conversation with someone who doesn’t respond to points being made, answer questions or even answer why he talks in third person.

So more fake news. Why bother to watch anything? Watch the video and Fauci is forcefully saying masks are not needed. Now he's saying they are needed? I give up.

Let's face it. You don't like folks with differing opinions. Trust me, I read all points on here and I do respond to points made. That's usually when I get caught up and you see five posts in a row from me. They are all responding to points made. Look. I hate masks and I am for opening the economy. That puts me at odds with many many many on here. Reiterating the same points? Look at all the posts on Trump on here. As much as I railed on Kamala and Warren and Abrams, others rail on Trump over and over. it's all relative to what you believe folks and most folks disagree with my positions.

Remember I'm a Bernie and Tulsi guy. How many of you are? I am a Jesse Ventura/Huckabee/Joe Rogan/Howard Stern guy. You folks likely aren't. We could go down the line and we'd see how my strong feelings are not shared by too many.

Hanging in effigy? Not good. I think it's inciting violence and should be illegal. I know we have rights to free speech but that's sort of "inciting a riot." We need to start working together, but the Congressmen and women and Trump and Pelosi are setting the tone there. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT; we can't work together. We need to work together before it's too late. (Both sides are at fault; some politicians are way too bossy and power hungry and rude and have angered a lot of people who need to feed their families; also many people are at fault; unwilling to talk it out calmly instead screaming and grabbing their guns for protests).

Hmmm, there are some in between. The people who are a.) starving and homeless from this. b.) confused and scared how they are supposed to feed their 3 kids when they've been laid off work and the mortgage is beyond due and the refrigerator is empty and the credit cards maxed.

The ultimate contrarion, like I said a page or two back. If this thread was posters primarily saying "Fauci is an idiot, Trump is great, masks are stupid and every store/restaurant/church/beach should be reopened asap," Greg would be saying the opposite. He does this for attention. He enjoys the arguing. He waits to see what majority opinion transpires and takes the other side. He's a baffoon. 

Next.

PM me if you have specific questions that I haven't addressed on here. I think I address a lot of questions.

Bottom line: I am a huge huge Sox fan who is passionate about "some" world and U.S. issues. That is all. If I'm wrong I'm wrong, but when I discuss things with people in person I don't get the huge disgust I get from some on here. I also try to be polite. Note I haven't mentioned hair or any personal annoyances since I got my hair cut. Issue SOLVED finally by the government opening up.

You’re always super calm and polite man.  It’s admirable.  You’d actually be good in any leadership position.  Yelling, screaming, shaming, ridiculing - that’s children and the weak.

Thank you, sir. I wish we could return to sports and "play ball." Or "drop the puck." Politics and corona are important but we need sports.

Right now he has responded saying I don’t like people with differing opinions, which is wrong. I’m a moderate who likes hearing both sides, but I don’t like seeing the same shit over again that has been discussed. Now he’s bringing up whataboutism on Trump even though the president is mentioned at different angles and not the same points over and over again with the VP nominee. He seems to have an issue with masks and wants to open the economy with no restrictions tomorrow. And he appears to have points about several of us collectively.

Let’s see what he has that is new to say and if he continues attention seeking. I can listen to opposing viewpoints and debate issues, but not restated points. Otherwise, next.

As far as bringing up the same stuff, that confuses me. Most of my posts are responding to current news reports and how mad I am as a result of whatever was said on them.
