Posted on 10/09/2020 2:38:30 AM PDT by CardCarryingMember.VastRightWC
Waving signs that read such things as Id rather die of COVID than loneliness, and We are prisoners in our home, residents of one nursing facility staged their own anti-lockdown protest along one of the busiest streets in Greeley, ...
Freedom, freedom, freedom, one lady chanted while waving a sign that read we want our families back.
... Gov. Jared Polis mandates that do not allow nursing home residents to see their loved ones,....
... protesting the lockdown as they enter their eighth month of no hugs, no smiles, no kisses from their loved ones.
... The isolation is what kills these people, she said. Its just incredibly sad that they cant live out the last part of their lives with their family surrounding them.
... They are members of the greatest generation, James said. The very generation who fought to overturn tyranny and protect our freedoms. Now these members of that generation have had their freedom taken away via a tyrannous act by unelected bureaucrats. The governor and the CDPHE should immediately work with these facilities to give them a way by which they may hug their loved ones.

Up until mid-March, I rarely missed a daily visit to his nursing home that's a few minutes from our home, some visits many hours long.
But from that time onwards ....
My 96-1/2 year old WWII Navy Vet Dad passed away July 16, with two of his sons present holding vigil.
I miss you Dad!
That’s terrible story. I’m so sorry for your loss.
This has got to stop.
Please send your account to the press, at least as a letter to the editor. I think most people dont know the full horror of whats going on.
Very sorry for your loss.
Groceries, liquor stores, and pot shops.
My mother is in a Nursing home in Virginia Beach, Virginia. El Chapo has more freedom of movement than she does.
Im so sorry you and your dad had to go through that. Someday you will hold each other again. God bless you and your family.
It is entirely about control. Even people who arent totally locked down l8ke the players father are subject to constant harassment and cruelty such as you mentioned in your experience.
One of the most depressing things is how willing the civilian population - such as the medical personnel - have been to enforce these cruel and irrational orders on their fellow citizens.
Im pinging impimp to this...impimp maintains the Flubros and Flubras thread .
Criminal. My condolences.
>> Id rather die of COVID than loneliness
That’s what I’m talking about!!!
Told my wife I’d rather be an elderly casualty than have the young ones indefinitely held hostage.
The #ing Rats have no clue how close they were
So sorry for your loss.
My wife and I took care of my father after his massive stroke. We built him a little kitchenette and this is where he stayed for five years. Finally, it became too much care where we could not keep up with it and had to move home to nursing home.
I do not know what I would have done if I was limited to no visits. He was in the state where he did not know me but I enjoyed my last bit of time with him.
It had to be hard on you and your family as well.
These fascists need to pay and pay dearly
REVENUE!! To hell with Joe the Ragman....
What we have done to people in nursing homes sounds like solitary confinement in prison, a very pleasant prison but still a prison.
My condolences and prayers. I met a family who had similar. Their grandpa had surgery and was cooped inside a hospital with no visitation, period. He too was a WW-II vet and he died alone without his children and grandchildren around.
He died of lonliness and despair.
Another person in the family was a father, schizophrenic and his caretaker left him high and dry because of the medical”essential,non essential changes.” So, the daughter has had to care for her father with four kids and a newborn.
The horrors of the “lock-down” shelter in place”for the greater good,” will have terrifying stories and scars for a generation. God help us, God help the children and those in despair because the government is diddling and making power points with the despairing people as tools to their throne
They say that you have to cherish the time with your kids while they’re young but it goes the other way as well. We have to enjoy the times with our parents and grandparents cause their time passes quickly. It’s great when you can have an adult conversation with your parents and when they’re gone you hear their voices of wisdom speaking to you when you’re confronted with problems and adversity.
Was it not possible to bring your dad home?
I have two sisters that now care for my senile mom full time. She’s 92.
We brought her out of a home in February.
It’s been challenging, at least. Dementia and still ambulatory. She requires 7x24 attention or she’ll wander off. She’s even started a kitchen fire.
We all pitched in and bought her a chair lift to get to the 2nd floor of my eldest sister’s home. Put alarms on every door.
I can tell my two sisters suffer the fatigue of 7x24 care. But they are insistent she’ll not be in a home where the virus rampages.
