I don’t think Dems have an exclusive claim to self-distancing


I doubt the majority of those kids partying on FL & CA beaches identify strongly with the GOP or Trump.

The fact is this was originally prescribed as a two-week mitigation effort that has largely been welcomed with bipartisan support and compliance.

At some point, in the midst of the panic over the last week and a half, those goalposts have moved. It seems like social distancing is no longer considered a momentary collective mitigation act to “flatten the curve” as much as a design for a new and permanent way of life to make sure nobody ever accidentally catches or transmits a potentially deadly illness that’s already out there.

Listen, I’m all for practicing safe and healthy habits at home and in public. But at some point there is a threshold where this fear of what can or will happen cripples everything else that can and will happen. I’m giving it the original two-weeks and likely a little more, but this indefinite suspension of life is not going to be tolerated forever.
