Let’s Get Back to Living

The General Tso flu is starting to bankrupt businesses. Let’s keep the country closed and the population frozen in fear. That’s one way to introduce socialism. The media is all over this “pandemic.” Their ratings have never been higher. Keep scaring the weak willed millennials. Who wants them out and about anyway. Stay home, let your immune system weaken and become reclusive. Your mental health will deteriorate as well.
News from the CDC, they now have reversed their warning that the rona is easily spread on surfaces. Apparently it isn’t. Oops!

New statistics, most of the “boomer remover” deaths are from the elderly and already compromised people. Why is everyone under house arrest? If you’re elderly or sick, quarantine yourself and take precautions.
This is madness. I watched King Andrew of Cuomo give one of his updates. Boy, this guy has an ego the size of Alaska. He loves to hear himself talk. His braggadocio is mind boggling, he’s just another brutish New York wise guy.
Prison Breakout,
Memorial Day is a few days away, the revolt against the lockdown will begin. People will swarm to the parks, beaches and streets. Backyard parties will abound, there will be music and laughter once again. Masks will be burned in bonfires as people dance and enjoy life. The police will not be able to control it. Executive orders are temporary, not permanent. The United States is a democracy, not a dictatorship. Lets’s put continuing this insane lockdown to a vote. I say NAY!

Bad Medicine
WASHINGTON, DC – President Trump received a letter Tuesday that some might say was overdue.

The letter was signed by 600 doctors who told the President that, from a medical standpoint, the country’s “national shutdown” needs to end.

The consequences of not doing so, the letter said, is “exponentially growing health consequences.” In other words, it said, “a mass casualty incident.”

Several reasons are listed in the letter.

Lockdowns due to concerns for the spread of COVID-19 have caused businesses, schools, and even some outdoor public recreation areas to be closed for months in some cases.

These shut downs, for many, have brought about “[p]overty and financial uncertainty, [which] is closely linked to poor health.”

We are alarmed at what appears to be the lack of consideration for the future health of our patients. The downstream health effects … are being massively under-estimated and under-reported. This is an order of magnitude error.”

The doctors were referring to a number of different “side effects” if you will for being on lockdown. This includes patients missing their routine checkups which make more severe diseases more likely to end in death and less likely to be caught early, increases of alcohol and substance abuse, and depression.

The doctors continued:

“The millions of casualties of a continued shutdown will be hiding in plain sight, but they will be called alcoholism, homelessness, suicide, heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure. In youths it will be called financial instability, unemployment, despair, drug addiction, unplanned pregnancies, poverty, and abuse.

Nostalgia Time, Tactile Things I Miss

I love the sound of snapping a zippo lighter closed. I don’t know about you, but I also love the smell of lighter fluid. Cigarettes always tasted better when lit with a zippo lighter.

Today’s topic: The rotary phone:
I miss the sound and feel of dialing a rotary phone, especially the older model shown below, it was so satisfying to hear a warbling dial tone and the clicks of the dialing mechanism. Ring, ring, hello.
Could anything beat slamming the phone down in anger on an annoying or unpleasant call? You just don’t get the same satisfaction on a touchscreen.
