SICK IDEA

There are an awful lot of complainers out there that government mandates are hurting all types of business activities and people gatherings. I suggest that for one entire month everything be wide open with no rules nor mandates. This will give enough time for COVID-19 to really spread among the entire population. Smart people will still mask, distance, get the shot and sanitize. Stupid people will die. At the end of that month, if illness and death rates remain the same as before the month without mandates, this will prove that we do not need government intervention to help us. Some would exclaim, “Yay, Halleluiah!” But, if the entire medical system (hospitals) collapse because of overwhelming exponential numbers of COVID-19 sickness and death, then the government should step in. The government should immediately install their mandates and the whiners and complainers should shut their mouths forever and listen to an entity that is trying to help them.

COVID LAWS OF THE JUNGLE

The recent distribution of rapid test kits at liquor stores, etc. reminded me of how food packages are given out to war-torn starving nations, i.e. the strong and healthy are first in line. Shouldn’t the rapid test kits be given to every household? There are vulnerable sections of the population that physically cannot line up at the “soup kitchen,” but should have the kit available to them. We’re all familiar with a second law in which individuals or businesses do not follow current COVID protocols. I like my karaoke and have gone to several Canadian Legions to practice my passion. Realizing that this activity is likely to be banned in the near future because of the alarming rise in COVID cases, I went to a (karaoke) bar last night. I was shocked to see the absence of the strict controls which were followed by the Legions, i.e. recording of QR codes/patron identification, masking/distancing whenever possible, and sanitizing of microphones. The risk was further exacerbated by the lack of ventilation. It’s obvious that some people just don’t get it. Couldn’t wait to leave the place.

SAY WHAT?

I have noticed through my Google feed that the Toronto Sun is publishing a number of articles that encourage Canadians to say “enough is enough” on COVID-restrictions and mandates. I want to thank you for this. Too many Canadians are afraid to speak up for themselves and their children. In truth, the media has done a lot to tell us to shut up about our concerns for our freedoms, our quality of life, and our children’s well-being. Thank you for encouraging Canadians to start speaking up.
