I thought my contempt for the saccharine little fools who put up signs in their yards about supporting “healthcare heroes” couldn’t become any deeper. But it did after I saw this:
The stupid little bastards are destroying our healthcare system because they saved on shrinks and are keeping us all hostage with their neuroses.
Long story short, everybody who tries to teach face-to-face at my school will be punished, and every effort will be made to push everybody into online learning until, at the very least, summer of 2021
‘WE ARE AFRAID OF DYING!’
‘I DON’T WANT TO SACRIFICE MY LIFE!”
‘I DON’T WANT TO DIEEEEEEEE!’
‘FATE WILL PUNISH PEOPLE WHO DON’T STAY IN LOCKDOWN. THEY WILL BE PUNISHED BY LIFE…. BECAUSE THEY WILL ALL DIE!!!!”
I’m working with certifiable nutcases.
P.S. In this post, I quoted verbatim what people said in a professional meeting among educated, professional adults today.
Michael Moore recently sponsored a film that offered a very mild criticism of some parts of the climate movement. The movie was placed in open access on YouTube.
And guess what?
Almost immediately some ridiculous and unfounded copyright claim was manufactured against it and it was removed from YouTube.
Here is what the director had to say:
This attempt to take down our film and prevent the public from seeing it is a blatant act of censorship by political critics of Planet of the Humans. It is a misuse of copyright law to shut down a film that has opened a serious conversation about how parts of the environmental movement have gotten into bed with Wall Street and so-called “green capitalists.
Lesson: don’t defy orthodoxy if you don’t want to be censored.
The university sent out a survey asking “what would it take to make you safe to return to in-class teaching?”
The question is completely unfair and ridiculous. Most of people are pampered, overanxious neurotics. They never “feel safe.” We can’t let such an important decision hinge on the neuroses of the overgrown babies among us.
Of course, I answered that I feel completely safe to return to work today (not that it matters while preschool is closed) but I didn’t grow up in an extremely opulent society, so my perception of safety is more realistic.
This is from the NYTimes that punishes me for subscribing by not letting me link:
“Fewer than half” is probably closer to 10% but whatever. This is killing people.
Chicago has experienced one of the deadliest Memorial Day weekends in years. Which is not surprising given that criminals have been released from jail while everybody else has been locked up, impoverished, and wound up.
It’s a disgrace that a silly spat between two obnoxious individuals in a park is turned into a huge news story. We have thousands of people dead in nursing homes because of governmental mishandling, tens of millions of unemployed, and everybody is on about two immature losers who can’t have a minor disagreement without filming it and sharing it on social media.
I’m strongly convinced that people who try to resolve their problems with each other through filming and sharing should be collectively shamed by everybody. They are poisoning public life for all of us.
The local farmers’ market will reopen on June 6. But only for “essential vendors.”
I’m now wondering who’s more essential, the guy with overpriced cucumbers or the lady with overpriced tomatoes?
