Remember Tony Faucci, that fellow who runs the... I forget... what's the acronym? He's the infectious disease expert who led us astray on lock downs. Yeah, that guy.
Now, he says that Thanksgiving is a risk for spreading Covid. Yeah, okay.
Given the fluid and dynamic nature of what’s going on right now in the spread and the uptick of infections, I think people should be very careful and prudent about social gatherings, particularly when members of the family might be at a risk because of their age or their underlying condition… You may have to bite the bullet and sacrifice that social gathering, unless you’re pretty certain that the people that you’re dealing with are not infected.
Doc, you have had nine months to solve this puzzle, and frankly, we're not a whole lot closer than we were when you began your prognosis. You have managed, almost single-handedly to change America from a vibrant, freedom-loving beacon of hope into a scared, over-cautious nanny-state.
I am going to celebrate Thanksgiving. I"m going to smoke a big ol' bird, probably cook a ham, and spend time with the trimmings. I'll give thanks to my Lord, and enjoy the company of family and friends.
I would remind Doc Faucci about another great American tradition, one that has fallen out of favor among polite company. Tar and feathers. These used to be applied to overly talkative bureaucrats who didn't know when to sit down and shut up. Perhaps it's time that we resurrect that tradition.
