I don’t know about you, but I thought we already had more “social distancing” than was good for us before the Chinese Communist Death Virus hit us. Did we even know the names of all our neighbors? Did we pass by the same people every day and never say hello? Did we take each other for granted?
Oh, but that was not enough! Other people carry germs! Back off, back off! Come no closer than six feet, please!
Well, hang it all, I want to hug somebody! I want to shake hands. I want to pat somebody on the back. We are human beings, not robots. We are mammals, warm-blooded: from time to time we need a cuddle. I want to bang around with my friends on the basketball court.
Once upon a time they used to quarantine the sick. Now we quarantine the healthy. What sense is that?
Once upon a time we had laws–publicly proposed, publicly debated, openly voted upon by our chosen representatives. Now we get “mandates” handed down by whoever’s king or queen for the day.
It’s time for America to go back to being America.
Please don’t settle for anything but the real thing!
