Evil Fatigue

Evil Fatigue It’s difficult not to be overwhelmed with the effects of evil in our world.  The question is, how much more can we tolerate? The unnecessary proliferation of the COVID contagion fueled by the belligerently ignorant who refuse to be vaccinated. Evil with an attitude. Medical professionals who’ve been stretched beyond their physical and emotional limits trying to deliver a high standard of care to those who defiantly stood in harms way and became victims of their own hostility. Evil on a ventilator. Leading Republican legislators illegally threatening business leaders to disobey the law or they will face retribution in the future. Evil with a microphone. Legislators and judges robbing women of their inherent right to choose by subjecting them to their draconian views of morality. Evil masquerading as goodness. Legislators extending centuries of racial discrimination and injury by creating barriers between minority voters and their constitutional right to vote. Evil manifest in the law. White Supremacists breaking down doors and windows at the U.S. Capitol swarming its marbled halls, defiling its sacred chambers, threatening the lives of American leaders and assaulting those sworn to protect it. Evil wrapped in our flag while chanting the name of their malevolent leader. The list goes on while our patience runs out. We can’t surrender to evil in any of its dastardly forms. Bring on the outrage!! ### 30...

Time For New Rules

Time For New Rules >> >> It’s time for hospitals to establish leper-like wards, preferably off-site, for unvaccinated, COVID patients.  Priority in staffing should go to unvaccinated nurses and others like unvaccinated police officers for security.  Local prisoners should be temporarily furloughed so they can mop floors, deliver food trays and clean bed pans. >> Manual ventilators will be provided for patients with pulmonary distress, heart failure, hypoxemia, asthma, bronchitis and the like. >> Unvaccinated family members will be recruited to operate these ventilators and they’ll be given a 15-minute training video complete with an illustrated operating manual. >> >> It’s time for new rules. >> >> 2020 COVID victims were caught by surprise and defenseless against the contagion. >> 2021 victims are blessed with a vaccine that’s free and widely available. >> >> Everyday we hear of rising COVID cases pushing hospitals to their certified “bed” limits; also ICU beds are scarce if they exist at all, filled with, take a guess, YES, unvaccinated COVID patients; and ventilators are similarly scarce helping patients breathe due to COVID’s harmful effects on lung function. >> Over ninety percent of these admitted patients are unvaccinated.  Let’s not get mired down in the reasons these people have resisted being vaccinated…almost all have NO defensible reason for their failure. >> >> It’s time for new rules. >> >> New rules should be fair...

C’mon Armageddon

“C’mon Armageddon!” >> >> That’s the silent cheer of a significant number of so-called Americans who resist any rational approach to gun control…who deny the existence and impending threat of climate change; and, most recently, who resist exigent circumstances and belligerently refuse to get vaccinated against the clear and spreading threat of COVID’s mutating lethality. >> >> If we were talking about a handful of malcontents it would be easier to give them space and let reality diffuse the danger. >> >> But this constituency numbers in the tens of millions.  The challenge is less a head scratcher than a clarion call to identify, isolate and penalize this group for their deliberate and mean-spirited efforts to inflict harm on others.  Such efforts are more than morally reprehensible, they’re blatantly criminal. >> >> Law-abiding, health centered citizens deserve to be protected from the bad acts these unevolved people perpetrate. >> >> No if’s, and’s, or but’s.  Mandate mask wearing, social distancing and impose penalties on anyone who resists, moreover, stiffer penalties if they resist with malice. >> >> We don’t have a choice.  We’re faced with imperatives to save ourselves and the planet and obstacles to these imperatives must be removed forcefully and unambiguously. >> >> This mentally deranged group is famous for their neon-bright hypocrisy.  Their “Pro-Life” dogma for the unborn is manifest in their constant protests and demonstrations....

When Rules Don’t Apply

When Rules Don’t Apply >>>> Most of us who’ve played sports are accustomed to playing inside the lines.  Boundaries define the area where you can score and the area that’s out of bounds. >>>> Democrats seem to believe they’re engaged in a game that adheres to traditional rules and, if they keep playing in bounds, they can score for voting rights, infrastructure rebuilding, economic equality, criminal justice, climate change, immigration, health care and changes in democracy. >>>> Who are they kidding? >>>> Playing by the rules is getting them nowhere. >>>> They seem to be meandering down the garden path when, in fact, they’re on the road to Hell; a road paved with their goody-goody intentions. >>>> They’re as deluded as >>>> Republicans who insist T Rump won the 2020 election. >>>> It’s time to get real. >>>> There are no boundaries. >>>> Rules don’t apply.  The sooner they realize they’re not in a game, but at war, the sooner they can shift the odds in their favor. >>>> They fumbled the ball and, thus far, have failed to recover it. >>>> ### 30...

Politicitis

Politicitis >>>>> >>>>> It’s infectious. >>>>> Among the self-righteous, it’s a contagion with a 100% infection rate. >>>>> They’ve politicized abortion converting it from a moral to a political issue.  Why allow religious or personal beliefs get in the way when you can politicize and criminalize abortion thus adding YOUR judgement to the mix of consequences?  Insisting others be forced to adhere to your personal beliefs is a defining symptom of politicitis. >>>>> COVID-19 vaccines have been reconstituted and now come in two different forms:  (1) A Scientific option that acts as an antigen against a viral contagion, and (2) A Politicized alternative that relies on conspiracy theories and downright lies to inoculate the faithful against the virus.  The choice is yours. >>>>> By politicizing the Pandemic, politicitis was given the green light to spread among the most vulnerable among us…the belligerent ignorant…people willing to place their very life in the hands of a carnival barker.  Where else but America do you have the inalienable right to be stupid. >>>>> Mean stupid at that. >>>>> Politicitis is infecting the ways we respond to unfavorable election results.  Symptoms include refusing to accept our fate and admit the loss…undermining the election process by claiming it’s rigged…incite others to riot against the results by attacking our country, destroying property and injuring police officers. >>>>> Politicitis causes groups of the infected to surrender...
