With all respect, if you do not want to wear a mask or properly social-distance, those of us in the more covid-compliant states are glad you live where you do - too! Just sayin' ...

Do it all outdoors around a nice warm fire while keeping your distance. Down jackets and snow trousers may be the hot items this winter.

Don't take on any new sex partners. Realize what you have.

I don't mind staying home over the holidays no matter what holiday.

I was responding to that I bolded in your post. You put it out there, so why would it not be fair game? But I accept your clarification.

As to the mayor, on the surface it does not look great, but I'm sort of half & half on it. Yeah, he's traveling, but he's traveling alone, will only spend the time with his wife & child, and will properly quarantine. So, I'm not sure this is such a big deal despite outward appearances. He seems to be acting fairly reasonably, to be honest.

he should set up a virtual dinner just like he told others to do and not travel.

I agree that would be ideal. I must admit, we will not be with our two vulnerable elderly. We have a dedicated family member taking care of them, and we don't visit inside - we do the outside social-distancing thing - sitting in lawn chairs on their lawn with them. But with the current seasonal weather, we'll be doing FaceTime tommorow.

Do conservatives think a virus cares about hypocrisy in politics?

should they not follow the same policies they expect and some are demanding others follow?

Ludin, please DON'T wear a mask.
I'm sick of hearing you whine all week long.
So if not wearing a mask makes you happy, have at it.

Just take a break from your tantrums.
Or not, make a fool out of yourself and flounce around with your imperious sounding "dismissals".

Of course they should follow the policies they expect others to follow. Why did you think I was saying otherwise? What the hell do you think it is that I support?

He told people to avoid travel if they can. He apparently couldn't. What's the big deal?

I have never voted for this person, nor donated money to their campaigns, nor ever praised behavior like this.

You are lying about my support. Why?
