A bit over the top? What's more "over the top"? My language or 516,000+ dead because "it's only the flu", which is STILL circulating in right-wing circles to this day.

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.

Oh look, more anecdotes that mean nothing on the larger scale, but make YOU feel better because it didn't directly impact YOU.

If that's how you're going to play it, let me drop my anecdotes on you. In my social circles, 12 infected with 4 dead. My parents (in the age group with the highest mortality rate) got it from a couple of guys who had to be brought in for a plumbing problem that couldn't wait. My parents survived, but that was a scary couple of weeks.

Neither side is denying science.

Bullshit. One side is listening to experts and the other is picking and choosing, based on what you just did, throwing anecdotes around. "It didn't directly impact me or it wasn't so bad for me, so it isn't as bad as they are saying."
