Out of touch?

Recommended Posts

Here in San Antonio, our mayor and county official are defying the State's 'guidelines' and requiring all wear masks.  The State Atty. General has sent the two of them a warning letter, which they are deflecting, of course.   To the point - we've had at least 3 cases  in the local news in the past week, where physical assaults have taken place between Pro-Mask and Ant-Maskers.  Usually - a  customer not wanting to wear a mask, assaulting the manager of the store who won't let him in.  Interestingly, it's been in the inner city type places.  In one case, two customers came back with a gun and shot and killed the unarmed Dollar Store security guard who wouldn't let them in.  I'm guessing the Mayor is including that as a CoronaVirus death.

The entire coronavirus experience has taught me a lot about the nature of human panic, terror, paranoia, and vindictiveness. 

And it's been very instructional as well on the topic of governmental over-reach and the impulse for politicians (at all levels, in all nations) to do something, anything, even if it's the wrong thing. 

In the end, they never really needed to do anything at all, except to issue some health & safety guidance, and then let adult taxpayers and citizens go on about their business.

They told us we had to follow the stay at home order to flatten the curve so we don't overwhelm the hospitals.  That's done.  The curve is at flat as it's gonna get.  The hospitals are empty.  Time to open all the way.  

Also, stay at home orders don't seem to work.  In NY during the stay at home order, 66% of new cases were from people saying at home.  Those were either retirees, previously unemployed or newly unemployed.  18% were nursing home patients.   Only 16% were from essential workers (including high risk health care workers).   Staying at home increased your risk.  The lock downs don't work.

There is evidence now that there was an event in Wuhan in early October.  That's probably when it really started.  Wuhan is a international city of 11 million with lots of travel in and out.  By the time we issued stay at home orders it was way too late.  All just a waist of time.

 Google  'ad hominem attack'.   

 Here's a hint -    it's the first step you take when an owner of a store tells you he doesn't want you coming in without a mask.

 Ghost's  authoritative post comes from a Nicki Swift youtube/web page.  What is "Nicki Swift" 

 "Nicki Swift is the top source for all the best dirt and juiciest gossip on the celebs you love…or love to hate{". (pinterest)

"Nicki Swift. 427K likes. Covering celeb news, gossip and glam, and all the dirt in between, with smarts you want and style you'll love. "(facebook)

So - ghost may be more than just 'out of touch'.

Remember that hilarious show he did called "Kevin Can Wait"?   Never should have been cancelled after just 2 seasons, despite the poor ratings.

One persons hilarious is another persons stupid. Its subjective. Like Jimi Hendrix is still the best guitar player ever and has not plugged in for about 50 years for some reason that escapes me.

Right, thus a ratings system where they actually ask people what they like.  

What if I buy Queens Greatest Hits LP and I don't think its their Greatest. Then they lied to me.

"greatest" is an example of hyperbole, or "puffery" in advertising.  

IDK, y'all are welcome to enjoy the comedy stylings of Kevin James.  Personally I think the funniest thing the guy ever did was stand next to the late great Jerry Stiller.  IMO without Jerry, King of Queen's would have been a flop.

Sorry, someone posted their opinion on a message board.  I shared my opinion too.  I can see where that would be a problem. My bad.  No need to break out the pitchforks.   👨‍🌾👩‍🌾👨‍🌾

Only bad thing I have to say about a J-45 is "I can't afford one".  😄

That will do it
