When Are We Going To Wake Up?

I feel it is important to say I believe there is a virus out there. In fact, I believe there are many viruses out there. Heck, I believed there were viruses LONG before it was cool to say it! I promise I wasn’t trying to keep it to myself as we never had this reaction to viruses in the past. With everything that went on last year, when are we going to wake up?

So much changed last year that if you were asleep since 2019 and just took a stroll down the street and into stores or schools or listened to the news, you would wonder if you are in the same place. Plastic barriers at checkout counters, people wearing masks (at least some), kids wearing masks at schools, on playgrounds and while playing sports would look strange. And don’t get me started on all the rebel, bad-boy rock stars and Hollywood elite lecturing us to get a vaccination and wear a mask. What is going on???

As I write this, St. Louis county is, once again, going to meet as to whether or not put a mask mandate in place. This argument has been going on for about a month since the tyrant…sorry, health expert decided to issue a mandate, which he has no power to do. It was quickly voted down as the great people in the county went to the meeting, voiced concerns and used their rights to get this done. However, some simply cannot give up power.

Although I could go on about this tyrant, that isn’t what this is about. In case you don’t remember, last year, and the beginning of this year, everyone was wearing masks indoors and social distancing. Churches were shut down and when they did open, had limited access to slow any spread. Getting together in groups was frowned upon and schools were limited to virtual as well as shortened in class hours. For the most part, we all complied as we were told if we do this, we can get back to normal. You could argue that not EVERYONE wore a mask however if that is the ultimate goal, it will never happen. I think that enough did it, and for a long enough period of time, that we should be back to normal if everyone (those in power) were being truthful. Unfortunately, being truthful doesn’t matter. Here we are, back again, being told if we just mask up for a while longer, we will get back to normal. I have asked many people what is the magic number for normal? No one can give an answer and, unfortunately, they are relying on those in power to give that number.

What I want to happen is very simple. Just be upfront and admit this will not end. It won’t end if we all put masks on for a month, a year or 5 years. It won’t end if everyone who is walking on this planet puts on a mask. As long as we continue to go along with “mask on, mask off” it won’t end. Why doesn’t everyone get this?!?!? I, for one, am tired of seeing people on social media telling me to “just mask up and we will get over all this”. You need to take the red-pill and see what I see.

St. Louis County is meeting later today to vote so we will see if the tyrant was able to bully another member into somehow changing a vote. I will update as it comes out.

Until next time…#eatthedamnsalad
