Pretty much every single "censored" conservative voice very clearly violated sensible TOS.
I agree for the most part, But I think the issue is that there is bias in when those TOS are enforced.
The far right has to walk on egg shells while the far left can say pretty much anything.
Give an example. For nearly anyone, you can find exactly what they got banned for. And usually, it was inciting violence or racism. Unless those are core traits of conservatism, they weren't banned for political views.
Take Alex Jones. Is harassing the parents of dead schoolchildren a core tenet of conservatism? No. He was banned for being an asshole, not for being a conservative. Same with Milo. Same with that woman that is friends with Ajit Pai and chained herself to Twitter.

? Are you making out with random people? Licking light poles? I mean - how are you getting it?
It's primarily spread through air droplet transmission. There were some interesting case studies done in Italy and China where you can literally follow the airflow from an air conditioner that had asymptomatic people in front of it which spread it in the path of airflow to people in the restaurant. You can get it from surfaces and touching your face though too obviously, though it is far less likely if people are washing their hands.
That being said, I don't feel Forged's comment is fair though, people are not "murderers" because they want lockdown lifted and there is no reason we can't be sensible in a careful, phased reopening of the country. Other countries have done this and been successful, we can too. We can't have an indefinite lockdown and I don't see anyone here proposing a date that is going to be OK so I'm assuming that's what they want. We just need to demand that from our leadership. We've bought time for the healthcare system with lockdowns and now they need to ramp up testing drastically. Test everyone. That's where leadership needs to put money and what we should be demanding that they do.
It's a really challenging situation in general because the approach that works in California is not going to work in New York. It requires coordination at every government level and a tailored approach depending on contextual factors. New York for example has many people in close proximity and a high uptake on mass transit users. Our federal government frankly has been failing us on this and other fronts related to COVID-19, regardless of the PR. We need to demand more from them.

The CDC does not say cloth masks aren't effective. This is 3 days old.
What they do say is they do not prevent YOU from getting ill. They prevent YOU from getting OTHERS ill. Which is common sense. If you exhale into a mask, it will not spread as far.
I strongly suspect where some retired folks get their news, because it seems to have gone through a major spin cycle, rather than coming from direct sources.
The covering fits snugly against the sides of the face so there are no gaps- which is not one single cloth covering I have seen.

Liberal tears, ever the retort of those without an actual argument. Schoolyard insults tend not to convince others of the soundness of your position.
Personally, though, I agree that it's time. Reopen everything--restaurants, hair salons, churches--but with a warning that it's not safe and social distancing should still be observed. Let the people make their decisions. Evolution isn't weeding out the stupid for us since we've gotten so good at keeping even the dumbest of us alive. We're overdue for a purge.
What you don't get is that you're killing me and my family when you bring the shit home that you selfishly contracted and then spread to who knows how many others. You may be perfectly fine, maybe not even show symptoms, but you murder dozens of others who were trying to stay away from people. Should your victims be considered weeded out while you, the stupid fucking selfish asshole, remain alive?
Being under quarantine IS NOT FUCKING ABOUT YOU! Stop being fucking conceited and short-sighted!

Meanwhile, we have fucking morons holding rallys screaming about their "freedoms" while completely abrogating themselves of their responsibilities.
What we do have evidence for is a drastic decrease in automobile accident deaths and crime deaths.

Good to see so many people back at church service today.
Many of them will be back for another church service in two to three weeks.
Photo showing the swimming pool packed full of kids was disturbing
10's of thousand more will die because of the idiot on the throne and his source of misinformation, fox news. Texas is way behind on testing, our deaths our increasing and gawd does not appear to be on our side.

LOL Epic gives away Civ VI for free and Valve makes money off the expansion.
It is a funny coincidence though.

Will go down as the most self sabotaging, godawful and contrary understanding of their own product in gaming history and nobody is listening.
