People are exhausted about the pandemic. Scratch that: People WERE exhausted about the pandemic. Then leftists started rioting in a non-socially-distant way, the ‘rona numbers that were on their way down shot back up, and now we’re back to being told it’s our fault for not wearing our masks more better enough. Instead of pointing out the real reason things are still the way they are, tyrant governors are defining what constitutes a “meal” that would allow you have a drink. Everything is the fault of those of us who followed the rules and didn’t listen to the experts, or at least what the experts told us most recently. What they told us the day before doesn’t count. They also can’t keep their numbers straight (see SOME FLORIDA COVID TESTING IS OFF BY ONLY … 89% and A NASHVILLE MAN WAS TOLD HE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID. PROBLEM: HE NEVER TOOK A TEST FOR COVID …).
We’re about due for some common sense from Mike Rowe. No, panic porn addicts, he is not in fact a scientist. Before you go acting like a snitch-ass little bitch to the authorities, he is in favor of masks and social distancing. He’s just come to terms with certain things, as he explains to a fan wondering why he isn’t afraid to travel to Georgia.
Thus, for the last three months, I’ve been operating from the assumption that this is a year-round virus that’s eventually going to infect 100 million people and kill roughly 1/2 of one percent of those infected, conservatively. I’ve accepted those numbers. Unfortunately, millions of others have not. Many people have no sense of where this is headed, and I understand why. They’ve been betrayed by a hysterical media that insists on covering each new reported case as if it were the first case.
I’ve accepted certain things about the pandemic, and now, I’ve gotten used to the risk as I understand it. I take precautions. I get tested as often as I can, and if I can’t physically distance, I wear a mask – especially around higher risk people. Likewise, I wear a seatbelt, obey the speed limits, and check my mirrors before changing lanes. Yes – I’m aware that we’d all be a lot safer if we kept our cars in the garage. I’m also aware we’d be a lot safer if we all kept ourselves in the house. But that’s not why cars, or people, exist.
This is where I am. Doing what I have to do to keep my family and myself safe, but it’s time to get back to our lives. It’s also time to hold our betters accountable for abusing the public’s trust and trying to shift the blame onto people who stayed home, went into debt, and were forced to let loved ones die alone. Mike Rowe is polite about it. My way would be to tell people like Andrew Cuomo and CNN to choke on a bag of dicks. Somewhere in between is a more appropriate response.
