The Anti-socialization of Our Nation.

Though expected to distance and quarantine at the whim of local dictators, a few things gave us a clue that our pandemic response was not about health. Vices were deemed essential, as liquor stores and non-medical marijuana dispensaries remained open, while playgrounds were barricaded, beaches, and gyms, and houses of worship suddenly inaccessible. There was no guidance on health-seeking behavior to bolster the first line of defense against the onset of ailments, just a band-aid for a bullet wound grade of national mitigation strategy that left many dying alone, surrounded by strangers.

Right you are. As long as infected, criminal illegal alien invaders are loose in society, we’ll never get any disease under control. Last year, it was 1.7 million of them intercepted at the southern border; who knows how many were infected, and with what?

I see it too, every day I’m out in stores, in traffic... wherever. Someone could snap at almost any moment. Dr’s offices and ERs are full, and they’re overloaded.
