COVID: No mention on Dec. 25

| December 23, 2020 1:00 AM

I gladly agree with James Ackerman’s idea of Christmas day being celebrated (as well as it can be) WITHOUT media mentioning the only topic of the year, COVID-19, for the entire day. After all, the subject has been talked to death, and yet, we still can’t be certain of what’s true or simply B.S.

One would assume not one damn thing else is going on in the entire world. Did human trafficking, the opioid pandemic and all those lives lost, child pornography, and the filthy laundry list of other crimes suddenly halt in the wake of this pandemic?

We all know that’s not the case. Damn shame we all don’t obsess over all these other theft of human lives subjects that we know well of, like we have this, a subject that has been all anyone talks about, and yet, we still don’t even know what’s fact or assumption by way of paranoia or simple gossip.

Never ceases to amaze me how we dwell on things we have no control over and side step the many atrocities happening that we could play a pivotal role in changing if we gave the same amount of time and energy we’ve given this, a virus that can’t be eradicated, and is eventually to be had by everyone anyway, unless you’re foolish enough to trust a vaccine concocted in less than six months, when most take years and are still questionable of long-term side affects. Lack of common sense is the real pandemic.
