We’re All in This Together?

We’re All in This Together?


Anybody old enough to remember the mood of the country after we were attacked on 9-11, can tell you how different it was than what we’re experiencing now. We were all united, most of us anyway. People took pride in their country and were respectful of each other.

It wasn’t until Christmas of that year when a relative said,

“Can we get rid of the flags now? Enough already.” That’s when I knew it was over, but for a few months, we bonded together.

We’re being attacked again. Not by planes this time, but a deadly pandemic. The slogan we keep hearing is,

“We’re all in this together.”

Are we? Not even close.

Look at social media. Every day, people are calling each other idiots and other insults depending on what they believe.

Should we wear the masks?

Are the masks bad for us?

Did China invent this in a lab?

Should I drink bleach for prevention?

Does anybody care if the Pirates play this year?

There’s too much information out there and most of it is wrong. That doesn’t keep people from finding the information they want to believe and standing behind it.

One group believes Bill Gates developed the virus, so he can give us all a vaccine that will control our minds. If Bill Gates wanted to control our minds, couldn’t he just release a conspiracy theory that says he wants to control our minds?

The people who believe the Bill Gates conspiracy would have their minds blown right now…If they were capable of comprehension.

Do I really need to social distance?

Should I storm the state Capital with an assault weapon and confederate flag?

Is this all a hoax?

Should I shove an ultra-violet light up my ass?

No seriously, does anybody really care if the Pirates play this year?

There was a time when we would’ve listened to the doctors and scientists. Not anymore. Knowledge is our enemy. Especially when it doesn’t tell us what we want to hear. Believe me, nobody wants to get back to normal more than me. I miss being able to perform. It’s just not considered safe right now.

That won’t stop people from trying. This is going to get ugly before it’s over. Get your popcorn and watch. We’re headed for Thunderdome!

One of the things we keep hearing is there aren’t enough tests. That’s why I’m going to post an online Covid-19 test to help end this sooner.

What’s your name?

Do you feel sick?

If they answer no,

“You’ve tested negative for Covid-19. To identify you as a non-carrier, please enter your social security number and all bank information.”

I could do it…you know I could…but, I won’t…Ok, if you do it I get a fifty percent cut. It was my idea after all.

All in this together…yeah, my ultra-violet ass!
