(I am not being sarcastic this time.)
This new flavor of stupidity just won't go away. Sure it's good for the blogging business, but I really want it to be over. What will it take? Many thought that due to the anti-Trump factor, this whole PanicFest would be quietly tailed-off once Biden and President-in-Waiting Kameltoe won the Election. They haven't won yet - don't get me wrong - but there's lots of people who maintain they have. Are they waiting for the inauguration, one way or another?
I can't say I want Trump to lose this thing just for that reason, because:
a) They may double-down on the Kung Flu stupidity, with different plans that we'd thought.
b) Decent Americans don't want what's coming from the D's, and the Kung Flu stupidity could be ended during a Trump administration. I'm sure Mr. Trump would want this, but it's not all up to him anyway. Americans have got to get over their hysteria. By beating the Establishment and their Election '20 CheatFest, we'd sure feel a lot of power to beat the PanicFest too.
I'll include 2 minor pieces of Kung Flu Kontroversy here that I got into. The first is a follow-up from my incident with the Brit woman scold that didn't like my (rash, and kind of silly, I'll admit) action outside the school a couple of weeks back (last portion of It's
I've really tried to avoid the elementary school due to anger issues brought on by seeing the face diapering stupidity at the place. I had to pick up the boy last week, though. I walked up maskless to stay across the small road from most of the people so as not to cause trouble. The School Resource Officer, aka, cop, came over to talk to me. Apparently the Brit scold was a tattle-tale too and must have gotten freaked out by my not listening to her, or else by that major biohazard of my kid's face mask buried in the bushes. (Why was the bush still there even? If this disease is so contagious and deadly, shouldn't all the shrubbery have been burned with a flamethrower? Believe me, the school district has got the money!)
This masked cop was pretty decent about it, I must admit. I'm sure he didn't want to be involved at all. He told me that my cussing and littering were a problem. I told him I didn't remember cussing at all, but when I think back, I don't know ... I apologized for the littering, as it's really something I would normally teach the boy not to do.
"I was pretty pissed off at seeing the kids in such a sad state. This whole thing is pretty sick. Aren't you getting sick of this whole mask thing?" I asked him. The guy was pretty decent about it. He nodded, though he didn't say much besides a "yeah", probably for political reasons. "The school district wants all this, so this school is just doing what the district wants." is how he put it (to paraphrase). I know, this cop would get fired if he just stood out there looking normal (with no mask) in defiance of what his department wanted. What CAN he do?
This week some friends and I met inside this coffee shop I normally avoid, as it was the only one allowing to people to sit inside, and it was freezing-ass cold outside. The place is owned by extreme lefties (which ones aren't?), so I wasn't that pleased to be in there anyway.
"Hey, you need a mask" said the one guy who I assume is an employee or owner. There wasn't a single one in my pocket, and people eating/drinking weren't wearing them anyway, of course. I checked my pants pocket and found no mask. "I don't have one." "You need one if you're standing up." "Whaaa?" "I don't have one." "We sell them for 50 cents." "Hell with that, let me look in the car." I really looked hard and had to settle for one sitting on the passenger side front floorboards, looking a little worse for the wear and tear.
I wore that old mask in there, and went up to the guy. "Hey, are you doing this because the city is all on you, or are you just hysterical." Well, he didn't like this at all, and we came really close to a fight. He could have told me nicely that "it's the city. I can't do anything about it." No, he used words that meant he was a part of the Kung Flu hysteria.
Of course, I need to stay out of that place. Things are not getting better. The Infotainment must be relentless. I wouldn't know.
What's that Bible Proverb again? 25:24 - "It is better to dwell
