The numbers are clear. We will soon face “tough choices” about who gets an ICU bed. Actually, we’re already there. And all of this could have been avoided had everyone made the easy choice to vax up, mask up and cowboy up.
One in four American public schools does not have a school nurse. In a pandemic. At a time when more American children are hospitalized with COVID than at any point since this all began. A society that will not protect its children—and is proud of it–is no longer functional.
And, hey, Elmer and Elvira Gantry. You say your faith will protect you from COVID? Did it ever occur to you that maybe God sent really smart dudes and dudettes to Earth to produce vaccines that actually WILL protect you from COVID? There is no “masking” your ignorance.
Sad, but predictable. Yep, the Facebook Fonies were out in force yesterday. You know that photo of Pete Buttigieg and his husband with their two adopted babies? “It’s Leftist propaganda!” Face palm.
Or, you know, maybe it’s just a nice picture of proud parents and sweet little babies. Are you really that sour? Are you really that bitter? Are you really that jaded? Are you really that paranoid? Are you really that insecure? In the words of Duane Thomas, “evidently.”
Do you morons look at a pecan tree and decide whether it’s a Leftist Pecan Tree? Itty. Bitty. Brains.
Labor Day. Yeah. Bittersweet. The unofficial end of Summer. And when I was a kid, it was also The Day Before School Starts. Every Labor Day, our mom would take my little sister and me to Landa Park in New Braunfels. (Yes, we knew how to spell and pronounce “New Braunfels” correctly, as opposed to New Braunsfel.) We’d pack a picnic lunch. We’d ride the paddleboats. We’d play miniature golf. We’d look at ducks.
Then I turned 12. Football.
No picnic. No paddleboats. No putt-putt. No ducks. (And in that era, football also meant “no water and no oxygen.” Lol)
It’s kinda like that chilling social media meme that says, “One day you and your friends went out to play for the last time. And none of you knew it.”
Hot Fun in the Summertime. Forever.
