I meant to write about this yesterday, but I forgot.
Much of what’s been on the local news lately has been about the various mask mandates to address COVID.
Yes, I wear a mask on the rare occasions i go out. Yes, I think people should do the same. But I don’t think throwing people in prison does anything to stop the spread.
From the politicians’ perspective, however, this is a win-win.
If people put on masks, you close businesses, churches, etc., and the spread stops, you can claim credit. And do it in the future for whatever is ailing society. You’re doing what’s best for people, and whatever rights you violate in the process justify it.
If your draconian orders don’t work, and there’s not 100% compliance with your direction, you can blame the noncompliance.
My view on things has been very cynical lately, and I expressed that hearing the fourth-hand talking points about how the President should be impeached again. Since a Republican was saying it, it must be true.
What will the corporate press cover? Hmmmm…
On to the news….
After 9/11, if I’d known that OBL was living in Pakistan, combined with a story like this, I’d have been behind attacking Pakistan.
Or just stay away, and let them do whatever it is that they’re doing. I’ll continue just not giving them any of my money.
It’s really not that difficult.
Nothing – 7/31/2002
Nothing has been going on, and I’m uninspired.
Finished watching the entire first season of the Sopranos, and will have nothing to do tomorrow night.
Nothing and I’m uninspired
The Intertubes are a lot more active these days. That’s both a good and a bad thing, I guess. I was watching The Sopranos largely because there wasn’t much else to do at 1:30 in the morning when I wasn’t on the air.
