Government of the self was the original basis for republican government, reflecting the view that civil society was much more than politics. Society was made up of men and women who gave order to their lives by entering into associations on a voluntary basis, quite apart from government, for all the various reasons of fellowship, philanthropy, faith and commerce.
Well, according to Creepy Uncle Joe, the pandemic is over. We should all mark the date – September 18, 2022.
The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s– but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.
Or we could just not listen to him, which is what his own handlers and the Democrat party would prefer.
The Pandemic Is Over! … Or Not!
Yeah. I don’t know what Biden’s failing eyes and failed mind can process, but I’m still seeing a lot of people going around masked. And, a significant number of those who aren’t masked up have their masks pulled down around their necks so that they can cover on a moment’s – or cough’s – notice.
While it’s true that neither the politicians, the deep state appointees, nor their media outlets are talking that much about COVID-19 anymore, there’s still a lot of Corona QTs out there, and their still hot and still covered by the now ubiquitous masks. But then, I predicted this almost a year ago.
I wasn’t really joking when I posted about our new niqab. Democrats and their media outlets were so successful in spreading the panicdemic that masking is pretty normal now, with a large number of people – most of them I see in NYC – refusing to unmask even now that there’s no mandate.
Are you ready for the Dems’ next panicdemic? According to the increasingly mush-brained “child lover” in the White House, you better be. And, you’d better be happy with giving him and his fellow Dems more money or you’re all going die to along with your children.
Yeah, I guess I’m ready for it. Sure, I was really hoping that we’d begin to start seeing people’s faces again, but I’ a guy and I’m sort of OK with being expected to look at a woman’s face as almost an afterthought. 😉
Of course I also understand that the other part of Biden’s preparatory statement about the next panicdemic is based upon the fact that Americans are poised to retake the House and probably the Senate. I’m ready as anyone who needs to earn a living can be at this time to deal with the fact that State and Local politicians in Dem-controlled zones will do their best to hammer at basic liberties and the economy in order to ensure that American politicians can’t revive our economy and bring our nation back to some semblance of normalcy, growth, and prosperity for those who earn it.
Remember when that jabbering Kenyan, Obama described half or more of Americans as bitterly clinging to our God and our guns? Well, that was then and this is now. And now, there’s a whole new breed of bitter clingers, ones who are truly deplorable in many, if not all, ways.
These days it’s the Left – specifically, the titularly White Millennials and Gen Zers – who are bitterly clinging to COVID-19 and the Democrat politicians resultant power grab and power trip.
They’re Clinging To Masks Like Safety Blankets
And boy, do they cling to their masks. Even with their own politicians reducing the requirement for mask wearing to suggestions in most places, the Leftists are still wearing them and still vilifying those who are “abiding by what the CDC and those politicians set forth.”
Those masks aren’t just virtual signalling anymore for those sorts. It’s now an identification badge and ingrained in their subculture.
But… As one can see above, that’s not all bad. There are times when one could just think of it as a kink and our new niqabis do look fine… well, what you can see of them. 😉
They’re Clinging To Their Homes Like Hikikomori
And, even more so than their masks, they’re clinging to their homes like Japan’s Hikikomori. They do not want to leave their domicile. They certainly don’t want to go to an office and work like most people used to, though that might have more to do with their sense of entitlement and confusion about capitalism and their places within it than anything else. Like Climate Change and Equity – previously termed Equality – the pandemic may for the majority of them just be another excuse for moving forward with their agenda.
But… I like my new businesswear, and I for damn sure think any and all of the dress shirts I bought for wear to the office look a lot better and serve a higher purpose now than they ever did then. 😆
So, in a case of irony gone wild, we have a whole new crop and version of bitter clingers in 2022, and they bear very little resemblance to the 100s of millions of Americans Obama previously declaimed as being such. But, at least we can be thankful that they do carry with them some varieties of secondary and/or tangential benefits for us all.
