How about every red state treating this like the common cold? Never shutting down, or, now, opening up way too early with no mask mandates?
I do find it interesting that how people see this virus tends to be the same as others in their political party. I hope someone does a serious study on that. I do find that interesting.

Your language is a bit over the top, in my opinion. No one is treating it like a common cold. Every state has had shutdowns and that has never happened for the cold, but I believe I get your point even through the hyperbole.

Where I live, schools opened up in August 5 days a week and there have been no major issues. I have gone to the movie theaters and not had a problem. One of my kids works at a grocery store and has been in public since day one. We have gotten the virus but it was not big deal. Other people at my work have gotten it and recovered quickly. My point is, from everything I experience I can see that the virus is not as big of a deal as others are making it. Of course, that is not to say that some have not been impacted greatly.

So, there are 2 sides. One side that thinks Covid is severe enough to shut everything down and hide until it is gone. And there might be some science to back that up. And then there is the other side, those that have actual experience (the best kind of science possible) to say that we can get back to normal and still be fine overall.

Neither side is denying science. Both sides are picking the science that makes them feel more comfortable. But all this talk of the other side being idiots or denying science is just nonsense.
