We’ve gone from living in the most advanced nation on earth to living in a funny farm.
I’m like a broken record, but the answer to this problem is right in front of our face, and we need to do nothing more than open our eyes and look at the European Union.￼
Eventually￼, events will cause the leadership in this country to come to the obvious conclusion:
Do what Italy and Spain did. Shut it down for 6 to 8 weeks, then test and trace. Then you can open the goddamned economy.￼￼￼
But what are we talking about instead? Opening up major sports like basketball where social distancing is obviously completely impossible for the players, and pretending, like little kids playing pretend, that we can keep the players in a bubble.
Showing how little we really care for the next generation and for teachers and school workers, we are talking about opening schools, at a time when the political conventions are canceled.￼
Even education experts, instead of finding ways to provide school lunches to children and to provide social experiences for children that don’t endanger them and our entire society, pretend that they are weighing the safety of them and our entire society against the need for childhood development – as if the two are completely mutually exclusive and there are no other options.
￼The European Union, despite its problems, at least has an educated population.
The United States, apparently and evidently, is just chock full of large, old, children￼, who are stubbornly following the lead of a literal mad man.
Joe Biden will restore not only America’s soul, but also America’s brain.
