I've had all I can stand on this government shutdown of everything and we need to get back to work. There aint gonna be no kind of vaccine for months maybe a year. at what point do we start our lives again.
Dear Twisted Sister,
For some reason, immediately after reading your letter a Twisted Sister song popped into my head; ‘We’re not gonna take it, no we ain’t gonna take it!’.
That song has been popping into my head on a regular basis lately given the circumstances and I suspect you’ve reached the point a growing number of Kentuckians and Americans have reached, you’re tired of sitting at home, tired of being told what you can and can’t do, tired of relying on the government for handouts and tired of teaching your kids this new way of doing math that is five times harder to do than the way you learned to do it.
However this is very encouraging to me. See, this country is supposed to be the land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE! There is still, thankfully, a large number of Americans that do not want handouts, we want to provide for our own families by the sweat of our brow, the best way we can, and as independently as we can. We want to be able to make our own personal decision as to what we are willing to risk to do so, not let someone in Frankfort or Washington tell us they know better.
What I find fascinating is the same group that hollers, “my body, my choice”, also hollers, “you can’t be doing that” and all I want to do is get a haircut and earn an honest living.
I’m not going to sit here and belittle those that are genuinely concerned or those that go down the hoax road or conspiracy path but I will tell you this: Life is a series of continuous choices, each and every one has positive and negative repercussions. You, as a functioning adult must continually decide if the reward is worth the risk when faced with these choices, the hope is you’ve been taught to critically analyze each individual situation and make an informed decision. Sadly a growing number of people haven’t been taught this skill and an even bigger number haven’t been honing this skill and simply do whatever the President, Governor, Mayor, news anchor, or Edmonson Voice opinion column writer tells them to do without even thinking about whether it is the best thing for them as an individual to do.
