This is not a war. Not even close.

It is certainly a challenge, and there are parallels, but it is not a war. To compare this challenge to a war is to speak political pablum.

I understand why people often want to be part of something greater than themselves, and the convenient characterization in vogue is "our war." "Climate change is our WWII." "Corona virus is our war." But it's a strange comparison, the prevalence of which is probably due in part to many enjoying such a level of comfort and lack of needs that they feel their relatively mundane contributions to society are dwarfed by the contributions of Americans that have endured the privations, death and ruin of war.

Perhaps if people were more grateful for the sacrifices of those that served and less insecure about their own contributions to society the "[fill in the blank] is our war" silliness would stop. A war is not something that any sane person should feel entitled to, nor is anyone less of a citizen for not having been in one.
Agree completely. In order to appreciate those sacrifices, though, they need to have knowledge about them. We have a public school system (especially the higher up you go in it) that has set out to pry that appreciation for those that have fought and died for our freedoms out of the culture entirely, and sought to redefine freedom such that even when they do find out, they no longer appreciate what we were fighting for, or think that the cost was worth the sacrifice.

Trolls like Frostbite make that comparison easily, but except for those that have actually lost a loved-one to coronavirus, all of the privation in this "war" has been manufactured by politicians. I'm sure most of them meant well early on, when we had so little information, but there is no excuse now.

It is just a virus and it can't think but it can mutate into more deadly forms. If it weren't able to mutate at will then there would be no problem in finding a cure and a vaccine. If it doesn't have a brain then maybe we should be looking at where it comes from to find out why every new strain that comes along is more deadly than the last. Yes! we are in an ageless war against a deadly enemy and masks and gloves are only a small part of what it will take for us to win.
It starts with people who keep animals in their living quarters and have dirt floors. The animal relieves itself and then kicks around in the dirt. The humans breath the dust and you have the conditions that are right for disease. Basically people who live in filthy conditions cause disease. One way or another that has been the cause of every pandemic in history.
One doctor in London figured out, by mapping where cases were occurring that sewer water was contaminating drinking water. By shutting off one fountain he saved countless number of lives. Filthy living condition.
No man is an island is never truer than when it comes to controlling disease. We live or die by what other people do as much as what we do ourselves.

Yes! There will be some adjustments to the gene pool as the people who can't maintain distance get weeded out. My wife and I have come to that conclusion after seeing the kind of people who have been in large gatherings. Will they be punished? They will punish themselves.

The mask sets a president ,be aware of being clean and distant .

Masks protect germs from leaving that person,not from germs incoming from another
person. 3M N95 masks is really hot and uncomfortable and impossible to find and these
cloth banana masks really dont do jack .
I keep one on me at all times but not because im in fear but because Im willing to
join the fight,if you dont want to wear one dont . Lots of hypocrisy going on,lots of miss
information and most importantly LOTS of covid numbers are lies . Media driven fear from
an agenda .. Stay safe folks

If we're in a war against the Coronavirus.......

Are the people who refuse to wear masks and social distance traitors?
Traitors are easy to spot. They are the ones pushing the false narratives in pursuance of their own agendas, at the expense of the society they are betraying:

What's your agenda?

At best those are feel good numbers. Unless you have the mask hermetically sealed to your face the efficacy of such is questionable. Does this mean we are in World War Flu?

The war is on the economy and the out-of-control power being exercised by some Governors in the name of "public good".

Like all flus, this one will be mostly gone in a few months. The ruin of our economy and the suffering left behind will last for years.

Probably everyone in the world is seeing that not a single shot has to be fired to subdue an adversary. Just inject the right fear and controversy and watch them subdue themselves. Someday that will likely be considered an old Chinese proverb.

Let's not forget that they punish others by spreading the virus to others.............others who then spread the virus to others--and so forth goes the pain, suffering and death.

And they do this backstabbing while pompously posturing and pretending to be superior and smarter than those of us who behave responsibly.

As our vulnerable elderly die trapped in nursing homes we can ask ourselves what we did.......did we fight for them or were we complicit in killing them?

As long as you wear your mask, you shouldn't have anything to worry about, right? Stay home if you are at high risk. That's the way we've always handled the flu.

The only posturing and pomposity I see here is coming from you.

The socialist agenda depends on everybody being equally impoverished and dependent on the government for basic needs.

What a complete load of crap.

Read about NJ and NY's decision to send Covid patients to nursing homes. These are allegedly the state governments leading the fight, and they caused thousands of deaths.

We know of one family in NJ that is shuttling their 90+ year old mother between siblings because they don't want her back in her nursing home.

You're just another false delimma guy. There is a middle ground - protect the vulnerable while letting the completely healthy go back to normal, while using some common sense precautions - washing hands, cleaning surfaces, etc.

What is the purpose of this thread ?

Are you here to shame others ? Hoping others will jump into the bandwagon that your driving ?

I've been living the dream-nightmare for the past few weeks , keeping a distance of 6 feet from others wearing a homemade mask when 6 foot is not attainable .

Society has made life for the socially stunted much easier in the past couple of years , food and others services can be delivered to your door anomalously , with no human contact needed or wanted .

It's a false equivalence.

It seems to me those who like to equate all these life problems with war have never experienced one; or perhaps they are just trying to promote an agenda.

The pandemic is merely an excuse for the Karens to jump up on their hind legs, prancing and barking to sound tough, all the while hoping no one notices their piddling themselves in their excitement. The only war, a cold one for now, in the US is between Americans and those who want to profit from the suffering and the deaths of others. Gee, I wonder what group of people in this country is famous for dancing in the blood of innocents and calling it a heroic act? The Chinese disease is unstoppable and no effort will stop the eventual exposure to it by everyone. If a vaccine can be developed, great, but in the meantime, we Americans need to keep calm and get back to the work and play that is living.
