VIRUS: Gripers and groaners

| May 13, 2020 1:00 AM

To those of you that aren’t paying attention to anything else but the government violating our “Constitutional Rights,” shut up, open your eyes!

Yes, we’ve all been inconvenienced by this pandemic, but the so-called “violation” of our “rights” is a step to keep us healthy and safe.

You gripers and groaners in Idaho apparently haven’t noticed that Idaho hasn’t been hit with this virus as hard as other states, which means fewer deaths. How would you feel if you or a loved one contracted COVID-19? Not too swift I’d imagine, especially when your loved one or you is put in total quarantine.

So when your selfishness overrides your sensibility, remember it could be you or a loved one in a hospital, on a ventilator possibly dying, alone. So what about “violation of rights?”
