NOTE: In an abundance of caution, the CDC has asked me to tell my readers to please stand six feet away from their computer screen as you read this post.
For the long-term readers of Mr. Bricks World, you know there are a few areas of the blogosphere that I do not dip my blogging toes into. Those are sports, politics, and religion.
1. I hate sports. (Well, except when Danica Patrick was racing in NASCAR in her hot little pink firesuit… now that got my heart racing. Note to doctors in the E.R: If I ever have a heart attack and my heart stops, please don’t start french kissing me and trying to do CPR….just show me an old picture of Danica Patrick. Thank You.)
2. I hate politics.
3. I love my religion. (I respect other religions, if you respect mine. Don’t make me believe that your sacred pigeon created the universe… Pigeons haven’t created anything, except maybe massive amounts of pigeon poop which inturn created higher dry cleaning bills.)
With those parameters clearly established and set in place, it is ironic that I now feel the need to take off my sneakers, socks, roll up my blue jeans, and dip my toes into the political arena with today’s blog post.
Why does the government think they know how I can have a better life. They don’t. But they are now using the term pandemic to control all most all areas of our life. Example: Well because of the pandemic you can walk on the beach but you can’t lay on it and suntan.
Most of the US Governors, Senators, or Representatives spent the last two months in their respective basements deciding if we can go outside or not. What do they know? Zip. Nadda. Nothing.
Then they told us not to wear a mask if we do go out. Then they told us to wear a mask if we do go out. Then they told us not to wear a mask if we do go out. What do they know? Zip. Nadda. Nothing.
Then many people all over the country decided they have had enough of being told what to do and went out anyway… So those in charge (Yep, the ones we elected) realized only feeble stupid people were listening to what they say and that most people refuse to stay home any longer, they have once again told us to wear a mask if we do go out. #TooLittleTooLate
I love this one that caused a lot of raised eyebrows… Close churches, but keep liquor stores and pot dispensaries open. The rationale is that addicts will die if they go cold turkey.
The government consists of out-of-touch, old, fat, rich, white guys, white ladies and black guys and black ladies who get paid enormous sums of tax payer’s money to make our lives intolerable, while they lead a jet-set live style and then get to retire on salaries 10x higher than the normal annual income of a typical US citizen. Oh, and before I forget..they structured it so that they are exempt from all of the dumbass laws they passed.
A sign from a local Publix supermarket:
I might sound like a protestor, but I am on the opposite side of the picket fence (pun intended.) A protestor is just a Senator or Representative in training. Someone who wants to tell others what they can and can not do, while they have absolutely no experience doing it themselves. It’s like hiring that fat nasty lady Abbey Lee Miller from DANCE Moms to a teach woodshop class at a high school. I’m sure she was a much nicer lady after her arrest and when she finished her stint in the big house.
And now, some lazy, overweight, dimwits on Capitol Hill got a bug up their ass that American kids might get Covid-19 if they eat french fries, instead of individually
What really has me going off the deep end is the sign I saw at a local McDonald’s. A big flashy plastic banner loudly proclaimed, “For the Saftey of Your Children All of our Happy Meals Are Now No Contact and Have Apple Wedges!”
I’m sorry, but if you listen closely you can almost hear Ronald McDonald founder Ray Kroc spinning in his grave. If the McDonald brothers had wanted kids to eat apples they would have opened a fruit stand and not a hamburger joint.
McDonald’s has wanted to exclusively add fruit to their box of happiness because it helps their bottom line. The whole Covid-19 gives them an incentive to push cheaper ingredients into a happy meal and creating a more profitable company.
Enough ranting…I now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.
