To the people with the joysticks controlling this game...

What the fuck are we supposed to do?

No job. No money. At home for 8 months and isolated. The only thing open that doesn’t cost money is outside. But it’s cold. Very cold in some places. We do the mask thing and socially distance but in the only 45 days of the year when people get together we are still supposed to do nothing. All while the politicians, doctors, and people with long money break all the rules and get caught on camera. They say I’m sorry and we forgive them like an abusive spouse.

I admit I’m a homebody and don’t like people in general so I’m ok as long as I get a little contact. However I look at my friends, family, and acquaintances who thrive on contact. The ones that get on our nerves and are annoying but the ones we introverts use to keep the flow going in group activities. They are mentally destroyed. How do we help them?

I am almost a half century and I have lived a great life with ups and downs like most people. And honestly I’m not worrying about dying but I don’t want to be sick or make anyone else sick. Being sick to the point where you can’t take care of yourself sucks. And I know people who have died after sitting in ICU with this shit for weeks and don’t wish that on anyone. So I do what the bobble heads on tv recommend. Funny many of them are really the “do as I say not as I do“ crowd.

My mind twists in the wind with the back and forth. One guy says it’s not real then gets sick but he is treated with the best meds. A few other ”chosen” ones say it’s bullshit but are the first in line to get protection. Maybe we should protect the service industry people after the medical and professionals who teach our kids. You want people to be able to live and get the “economy” going? You want workers and industry back to work. That looks like the best place to begin.

We are just tired. I watch all the different propaganda channels we call news and look for the message they’re selling. I need to start looking for where the money is flowing. That seems to be the way decisions are made by the people who govern the land. So now I ask the campaign contributors who push our elected officials in one direction or another. What do you want us to do?

I can’t be the only one who is looking behind the curtain and wondering what is really going on. What say you Fam?
