What percentage of these people voted for Trump? Likely a very high percentage given they are ignoring the experts just like Trump.

Some were tired of more than eight months of social distancing and determined to spend time with loved ones.

The notion of 'in it for the long haul' is not one many Americans understand. We're a McDonald's culture, one where instant gratification takes too long. And are paying a ridiculous price because of it.

Not this year.

Warnings of what? Warning of numbers on the tv screen being bigger than the previous day, that’s about what it comes down to

It could actually be a direct assault by people like a certain poster here who said it was a good thing that the death rate is increasing because they can now blame Biden.

The infection and death rates are rising faster than ever in the U.S. and in fact, setting new records, yet Americans are outright ignoring it.

This will not end well.

“As long as you’re maintaining your distance, you’re not touching stuff and you’re sanitizing your hands, people should see their families right now," she said.

In the US, at least they have space to maintain distance, in Japan, people just aren’t able to.

Believe it or not, as you sit in Japan believing that the U.S. is divided on verge of a civil war, most people aren't wrapped up in politics. California votes blue but very few people sit at home listening to Gavin Newsome's guidelines. He gives these guidelines as last week he attends a large dinner party inside a restaurant with no social distancing and no masks. My family and friends voted for Trump and Biden but nobody is disowning or defriending anyone. Just because people vote, it doesn't mean they eat, drink and sleep politics.

Thousands, even a growing list of police chiefs in California and New York refuse to enforce orders of arresting or stopping people to gather on Thanksgiving and I applaud them and these police chiefs are sick and tired of these Democrats and their oppressive draconian laws and you’re going to see more rebellions from the police as we go further when it comes to draconian rules concerning this virus.

The competition for this winter's Darwin Awards in America is going to be unusually severe. Thank you very much, Mr President! The country will always remember what you wrought (while you played golf).

80,000 in hospitals with the virus and there will be more too. Yesterday, an additional 200,000 infections in a single day. More than 2,000 deaths in a single day.

All of the 50,000 or Americans in Japan don't be travelling this Thanksgiving and will be at home. Most won't even get the day off since it's not a national holiday. I hope you all at least stay safe and have a good one.
