Today’s dose of what the ………….?

I signed onto Facebook this morning – I haven’t posted anything there since December but I like to keep tabs on the few friends who still use that hot mess. One of them is from Canada, so she posts stuff about what’s going on there. Today it was an article about Halifax shutting down. People were commenting about how this is just wonderful and the way to end this problem and along with the vaccine, maybe “by summer we’ll be allowed to go out and play a little.”

That was my WTF? moment.

They’re CELEBRATING the government AGAIN telling them they can’t “go out and play?” I am so not a rebel. Okay, maybe I am. I never thought of myself as rebellious, I don’t like getting into trouble, I follow rules and in my entire life, I’ve been pulled over ONCE for speeding – and didn’t get a ticket, by the way. (okay, we won’t discuss the time I got a ride home because I was a wee tad tipsy – there are benefits to growing up with the chief of police in a very small town) And yet, I am astonished at the willingness of people to allow the government to take away their rights and not make a whimper, and then thank them for MAYBE giving back a crumb!

My second WTF moment came after reading a book review. I finished We the Living the other night, posted it on Goodreads, which I pretty much do only so I can keep track of how many books I read in a year. I posted about this book the other day so no need to revisit my review, however I was totally astonished to read a review written just recently – and be aware this book was published in (I think) 1936, that said that the author knew nothing about the topic and was obviously just pissed off that she had lost her privilege when the Russian Revolution happened. She also damned near lost her life, many people were starving or damned close to it, but apparently eating is now a privilege? Seriously?

And my third WTF moment came when Maverick decided that every guy at the park was his new best friend. HE DOESN’T LIKE MEN!

I’m living in the Twilight Zone. Oh, and then I saw that we’re supposed to only eat one burger a month, according to the CSM who is not my president but currently resides in the White House. Yeah, not happening. Guess I am a rebel, cuz when you tell me something like that, it makes me want to say, “you want fries with that?” Yes, as a matter of fact I do.

    My WTF moment this week came when I heard kids were returning to school five days a week. “Hooray!” I thought…until I found out that it was only to do nationalized testing. School isn’t safe for education, but it is for testing. 🙄

  3. I can’t pick a WTF moment. I keep having them every day so now they seem normal.
    I’ve never been a rebel. I always follow the rules and set a good example. Not anymore. My friend who was the rebel wears a mask & gloves when she grocery shops and was so happy to get her vaccine. Obviously we are in upside down world.

    • I haven’t worn a mask at the store in months. Those of us with naked faces smile broadly when we meet

      yep, I am not a huge rap music listener but I do listen to a few rappers (none of which are far left or gansta rap), but you should listen to Tom MacDonald’s “Clown World”, you can find it on YouTube, because he’s not politically correct he doesn’t have a record label to produce his music so he produces everything by himself and and his girlfriend does all the videos. His videos are rather well made in spite of no music producer, and still he is very popular in the rap genre. Don’t be put off by his tatoos and some language, etc, because he’s not politically correct you could say he’s a ummm, rebel. yep.

  4. I’m not sure if Mr. Aitch and I will get the vax. It’s still experimental in my opinion and I’m not ready to be guinea pig with my health/life. My brother indicated that he and his wife (who has MS) would prefer anyone who visits is vaccinated. They are both vaccinated. If it is the miracle “they” claim it is, what’s the point whether I am or not?
    Like nothingbutknit’s friend, my BFF seldom goes out and continues to wear a mask and gloves if she picks up takeout food or groceries though both she and her husband are vaccinated. Upside down world for sure!

    • I’m not getting the vaccine, I have too many questions that no one seems able or willing to answer. My sister has gotten it, goes nowhere without a mask, and is appalled that I do. It astonishes me that no one is asking this question – if this vaccine is such a miracle, why is nothing changing? The ONLY answer I get is “because of people like you who won’t get it!” Well that’s just freakin stupid!

        My sister who is a conservative too, feels the same way about the shots your sister does, and I’m like that is great you do you, I’m not getting an experimental “emergency” vaccine that is not approved by the FDA and that they say you will still be required to wear a mask and social distance after you get it, if it’s that great and those that are afraid enough to get the shot do get the shot they should be good and not afraid they will catch it from someone else who didn’t get the shot. But if they can still catch it why get the shot? Nope! Honestly if it’s just a reg virus like influenza, which in “most years, the US death toll from the flu is closer to 34,000 to 43,000. Globally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the flu kills 290,000 to 650,000 people per year” (from https://www.health.com/), and we know all the current virus deaths are not all from that virus because they attributed most deaths to it (be it a heart attack, cancer, car accidents, influenza etc), yet no one legislates masks and social distancing for influenza? What makes this virus so awful, aside from the false attributions? Seems like then it’s ether a bio weapon unleashed on us from China or the biggest government take over of our freedoms we have experienced in our lifetime.

      • I’m thinking it’s a combination of both – released by China and exploited by the various governments

    This post cracked me up. I gave up FB after watching ‘The Social Dilemma’. I don’t think shutting people in their homes is a way to mitigate this virus. People need to be trusted to take responsibility for their behavior. If someone is worried, stay home. If not, go out. Either way, be smart. That whole hamburger bit is a joke.

    Always been a bit of a rebel here, I haven’t worn a mask into a store in months. Wait, I never really did. I have worn them in small shops where I know the owners and while it was mandated for my state. But now the mandate is gone and I will not set foot in any small shop that stills require me to wear a mask, nor will I order something to be picked up from them. I just want to ask them, just when do they think the masking will end? What are they waiting for? No vaccine for me. I pray my daughters will not be guilted/forced to get them for work.
