The states or casinos Iíve seen no smoking at the table but otherwise allowing it is a complete joke. Especially In casinos that arenít spaced real well and have slots nearby any poor soul playing machines in the first row or two near table games becomes a human friggin ashtray at every blackjack shuffle or whenever someone steps away from the craps table, itís completely ridiculous



I agree but at the same time it is a baby step in that, at least, we do not have to deal with someone puffing away at the table.

The reality remains, too many residents of the USA just do not care. For a variety of reasons and justifications.

Until everyone cares about getting it under control, it'll continue to effect us in numerous negative ways.

Folks who think that they'll wait it out until a vaccine may be waiting for a long time. I have just not seen any credible reports that a vaccine is imminent.



The reality is there is minimal anything you can "do about it" or "do to take it seriously." I file it under, "I have to die of something." Living under long term lockdown is no kind of living. The thing is in the USA (and Canada for our northern readers) we have had two or more generations of so few health threats, or other threats for that matter, that people cannot handle what is not instantly under control.

"Caring about getting it under control" will not get it under control. We have to face facts that some things are out of human control.

I'm glad you aren't the commander in chief for the defense of an out of control forest fire!

Well, I never took forestry. But I would figure the first step is to establish a perimeter. Make some backfires to contain the fire. Then go at the main fire.

What does a forest fire have to do with a virus?

Nothing of course. Just another well disguised political statement.

I wear a mask. In the casino...the reality is the only people who can remove their mask legally are smokers. When I say remove, I say the damn thing is hanging off their chin for their entire time there.

For this reason...at least as far as Nevada goes, they can take their mask mandate and shove it where the sun doesnít shine. I have no issue with the mandate. Iím on board, whether itís effective or not. But this means EVERYBODY.

I object to the complete hypocrisy of how enforcement was implemented. No one should be allowed to remove their mask...and worse, for something completely health nonsensical like smoking and blowing smoke all thru the casino during a pandemic? Unreal. At worst it should be a puff/drink, pull up each time. Itís not.

This ďpassĒ is simply Sisolak and casino bosses putting money over health. Not for all. Non smokers, non drinkers must comply. Those who puff are exempt. What is worse is that Sisolak implores mask wearing like itís a new appendage for every human. ďLeave it on!Ē

Now explain to me health and safety is some priority....without a giant smirk or eye roll going on. Rant over.

You made a pretty blanket statement that there are some things that simply cannot be controlled. The best thing to do is continue as if those uncontrollable things don't affect us.

If I am wrong please correct me.

I was making the point that a forest fire is often out of control. Thankfully our firefighters don't just ignore the problem and stop doing everything they are trained to do because"some things are just uncontrollable".

So, yeah, I am glad you aren't in charge of any firefighting

As for a veiled political statement Demango accuses that of being I can't figure out how. Nothing to do with politics

Exactly. You have to go on with life. Take sensible precautions, but that is it.

So why do keep railing against taking sensible precautions like wearing masks?

You two continuing to engage each other is the definition of insanity.
