1. They aren't an example of that at all 2. OK 3A - yes those are extreme positions and 3B no one is putting that out there but you. You saying that people have this position or expressed it doesn't make it so. That's just horrific reading comprehension/interpretation based on the threads I've seen and what people have said. 4 - Again I don't know of anyone calling a common worker wanting to go back to work some greedy piece of shit. If anything I've seen PSR sympathize and emphasize with those common workers / people they know being fucked by this. The people getting shit on are the ones with the position of having no precautions over this virus or the lady who was in downtown Denver yelling at healthcare workers to go back to China and saying that the virus isn't real.
5/6/7 ok i think I get your point better now - fuck anyone collecting a paycheck saying someone else should not be allowed to work. I haven't seen anyone on PSR say fuck people for wanting to work. It's more so maybe we shouldn't just open everything up as if there is no virus going on, and let people just start gathering in mass groups again. Unless I'm missing the message people have been spreading and it's really that we all need to live in bubbles and harass waffle house employees.
1. Yep. I can link if needed. It would be easier if you followed the topic.
3a. Yep. 3b. I can link if needed. It would be easier if you followed the topic.
4. Well good for that, but how many bills does that pay?
5/6/7 It's the world they created. They want to play the game and make the rules, they just start crying when the rules apply to them. When their tears don't work, they make shit up, when that fails they flee....
In the battle of rhetoric versus reality, reality has gained a powerful supporter- Academic Institutions.
The "if we can save even one life we have to do it" nonsense in now the crown of the trash heap of ignorance. It was always easy, if despicable, for those pulling down a paycheck to tell the Waffle House waitress that she's little more than a dog who must survive on gov't dog food to keep from killing the planet. "Shut the fuck up bitch, I don't like grits anyway..." It's so humane, so compassionate for some bureaucrat or self aggrandized asshole to to you that you aren't "essential". You're disposable. We're sacrificing your ass. We've made this a country of have and have nots, and you don't have "essential".
Sucks to be you.
Well now math has caught the attention of academics who are scrambling to find a path to survival. Turns out, they aren't too excited to be declared non-essential. Cast into collapse of nothingness along with the local Waffle House. They never expected to have skin in the game.
Well, now they do and they are making their move. More and more are plotting to open and making plans to remain viable.
It's easy for the snobs and the stupid to declare those they find unworthy to be disposable, but their fight will lose all support if they can't defeat academia.

Colleges Face A No-Win Dilemma: To Cut Or Not to Cut Tuition?
Chronicle of Higher Education, Colleges Face a No-Win Dilemma: To Cut or Not to Cut Tuition?:
Amid all the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic for higher education, two things are becoming clear. Most students yearn to come back to campus in the fall, in spite of the risks. And if, instead, students wind up receiving online instruction come September, they don’t want to pay full tuition.
These two factors are driving the decision-making of millions of students and their families. In response, many institutions are frantically making elaborate and expensive plans to open up classrooms and dorms, in part because they feel like they have to. Surveys show that an overwhelming majority of students don’t want to pay full cost for another semester of Zoom meetings, and that some incoming freshmen who have been admitted to colleges that choose to extend online learning into the fall might defect to colleges that decide to open their campuses. Substantially fewer students equals plunging tuition revenue, which equals financial disaster at a time when many colleges are already at the fiscal brink.
Colleges that are going with online instruction are playing it safe with the virus, but running the risk of losing enrollment — and tuition revenue — to institutions that promise a semester with dorms and classmates and maybe even a little fun.
All of which presents a no-win dilemma to colleges planning to offer mostly or wholly online instruction. They can discount tuition in hopes of keeping students happy, despite the hit to their bottom line. Or they can stick with full tuition for the fall, and still brace for the possible hit to their bottom line.
A number of colleges have offered reduced, deferred, or even free tuition since the spring, but midsummer has raised a new crop of similar announcements.
