To just save you all the trouble let me be clear.
I am not overly concerned about alcoholics or illegal drug users well being over the rest of us no matter how “ functional”they are.
Liquor stores are no more essential than crack dealers. If you feel the liquor store is an essential business in the current panic you need to reconsider yourself.
Maybe the difference is that we arent panicked. We have been dealing with this in a calm and orderly way. We listen to our public health experts, and so do our politicians. Our policies are based on their advice, not the whims of our politicians.
Down there you guys seem to be in full panic mode because of a lack of leadership at the top. You were caught completely unprepared because you ignored the warnings for many weeks before acting, and all that time the virus was taking hold. Even now your polarized politics are getting in the way of effective response. You have a federal government that cares more about the stock market than the health and safety of their citizens and it is left to individual jurisdictions to decide how to respond, and they have to deal with partisan attacks and resistance to their response.
This thing is far from over, and things will likely get worse before they get better. But for now, I am going to work, risking getting infected every day in order to keep our critical infrastructure functioning properly, and on the weekend, if the weather is nice, I will reward myself with a nice sail, and maybe a bottle of wine.
If you think that makes me scum....I can live with that!
