Common Sense

When did common sense become politicized? When did we stop thinking rationally? Honestly, I’m concerned. You see, most sane adults understand that there’s a pandemic that has taken the lives of more than half a million Americans and an estimated 2.57 million human beings worldwide.

We know that the virus is mutating and that even though there are now vaccines to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 only a small percentage of the population has received the vaccine as of March 5, 2021. We are not anywhere near the point of herd immunity.

And yet certain governors in the U.S. have decided that it’s time to do away with all the restrictions. They’ve opened everything up. No more masks. No more social distancing. No more limits on the number of people who can gather in groups. No more common sense.

Ah! Sweet freedom. Freedom to kill and be killed. Freedom to not care about our friends and neighbors. Freedom from common sense. God help us all.

    1. Part of me fears that, since minorities are more likely to go unvaccinated or to have access to the vaccine, that this is a barely veiled attempt at genocide. Okay. That’s probably too dramatic, but certainly people of color have been affected by Covid more than whites.

      1. I’m not usually one to entertain such notions, but I’d be lying if I said this hadn’t occurred to me too. I really hope you and I are wrong and this is not the case.

  1. My governor is on FB bragging that our state does not and never has had a mask mandate, but our numbers are going down. Typical idiot refuses to acknowledge the fact that all major metropolitan areas and surrounding communities had to step up and institute their own mandates because our governor was too busy playing politics to give a crap about the lives of anyone in our state. This is the same jackwad that is prioritizing for vaccine distribution the same rural communities that have been screaming at those local leaders to do away with the mandates or flat our refused to follow them and actually wear the masks. So much so, that from what I’ve heard (though haven’t been able to confirm yet) is that some of those vaccines have gone to waste because those people are refusing to get them so the amount sent was more than could be used. When my local mayor saw that states were rescinding their mandates, he posted “This ain’t Texas. We’ll follow our medical, nursing, and scientific establishments on masks—not some dude on Parler.” I gotta say, I really dislike my state government, but I adore our mayor.

  2. It’s thankfully not as crazy here in Italy. But, but, I see an inordinate number of people – mostly men – who wear their masks under their noses. I really find myself wondering why so many people are just plain stupid.
