It’s been a doozy of a week, good and not so good stuff. I’ve been tired as hell and trying to get things put together and educate myself. All in all, if you asked me what the heck I actually did, I couldn’t tell you much.
But with more stories about infection rates spiking, restrictions argued over, I just have my hands up in the air and I’m tired of it all.
More than that, I find it damned shameful to be American right now, because we have to be the stupidest society on Earth to everyone else. We can’t do simple things to keep other people safe, let alone ourselves.
As the great philosopher Beau said:
And he said this SIX MONTHS AGO!
160,000 additional Americans have died since then.
How and why the hell is this still an issue? Why the hell aren’t people doing what they need to do for themselves, their families, their neighbors? Why aren’t they ALL being respectful and more importantly, responsible?
This is why I’ve thrown my hands up in the air and I’m almost in full hermit mode. Not good for a recovering recluse, but I’m tired of it. We are not a society based on social responsibility and any semblance of respect anymore… if we ever were.
This impressed and saddened me when I saw it today. It’s only a minute and a half, and is about two months old, but honestly… it says a helluva lot about masks and basic health procedures and us.
I want to ask how the hell we can get to the point where people care about each other and not just me-me-me in this country? How did we get so far off the deep end?
I can’t even ask the question correctly because it opens up a thousand more.
Still, floor’s yours if you’ve got some ideas and want to vent…
