The huge distinction in livelihood, typically separated by mere miles, in America bears the query of when, if ever, will the nation return to a traditional society. For most residents, the time to adapt to the COVID virus is now. For others, specifically Democrat governors, the danger remains to be far too nice.
HBO tv host Bill Maher will ceaselessly be a die-hard liberal, however even he’s not crazed sufficient to miss the variations between dwelling in a Red state in 2021, and being trapped in a Blue one.
During his present’s taping on Friday, Maher requested featured pundit and Democratic Senator Chris Coons why visiting a Red state through the pandemic has been a superior expertise.
“I travel in every state now, back on the road, and the Red states are a joy and the Blue states are a pain in the a**. For no reason,” Maher admitted. Sen. Coons responded that continued COVID restrictions have been required to advertise vaccination.

The night’s different pundit, author Caitlin Flanagan, chimed in on the shortage of frequent sense behind the vaccine mandates.
“And if someone’s willing to be a fireman; if someone’s willing to be a policeman; if someone’s willing to go into a burning building and says, ‘I’m just not that afraid of COVID and I don’t want to take the vaccine,’ that should be enough. You shouldn’t be losing a job, you shouldn’t be furloughed without pay, the guy that saves lives because he doesn’t want to take the vaccine. It’s ridiculous.”
Maher has lengthy been a proponent of ditching restrictions which have failed to enhance residents’ safety in opposition to COVID and handicap a state’s high quality of dwelling.
“Just resume living. I know some people seem to not want to give up on the wonderful pandemic, but you know what? It’s over,” Maher stated. “There’s always going to be a variant. You shouldn’t have to wear masks. I should be too … I haven’t had a meeting with my staff since March of 2020. Why?”
Maher referred to as for pandemic consultants to start out selecting between demanding masks or selling vaccines, because the logic of the 2 proceed to journey over one another.
“Also, vaccine, mask, pick one! You’ve got to pick. You can’t make me mask if I’ve had the vaccine.”
