COVID Insanity Moments

From the people who have been yapping at us to “Follow The Science” …

In Denver, they banned family members from playing catch in a public park.

In Italy, two cops rousted a lone guy laying on an empty beach.

In California, they pulled a lone kayaker from the water.

In Ireland, two doctors were suspended for going hiking out in the middle of nowhere.

Kids under 2 at daycare don’t wear masks ever, but turn 2 years old and 1 day & they wear masks for 6 hours straight Except for eating and napping B/c little known fact: Covid can’t be transmitted while you’re sleeping! But once a toddler is awake? Boom! Super spreader!

When the day care at the school was open, but the classrooms were closed.

After the children were allowed to return to in person school in late March 2021, my kids’ school did not allow anyone to use the playground equipment. This was long after most other playgrounds reopened around our county.

On Labor Day weekend, the streets of Carmel by the Sea were packed, but the beach was off limits and guarded by police, unless you were going to cross it to get to the ocean to “exercise.” We were not allowed to watch our kids in the water, so we went home.

In Michigan, Whitmer banned all boats with motors. Row boats, canoes, and kayaks were allowed. Later, when the motor ban was lifted, boats were limited to four people regardless of size of family or boat.

While simultaneously claiming that 99% of new cases are in the unvaccinated, the CDC actually only track vaccine status on those who get sick enough to need hospitalization.

No gatherings above 10 people, but protests could go up to 100 people.

Someone called the cops on me for sitting on my 6th floor balcony without a mask.

In LA, a restaurant spent thousands to comply with outdoor seating rules. The city closed them, while allowing a film crew’s caterer to serve from a tent right next to the restaurant.

Banning eating inside a restaurant, but allowing structures to be built outside within which people could eat.

In New York, chips could only be served with salsa, not without.

When restaurants were allowed back open, and you had to wear your mask until you were seated. Because the Rona doesn’t come for you when seated.

I saw a guy at the gym put hand sanitizer on his gloves.

I saw musicians playing their instruments through holes in their masks.

Three weeks ago, I had my credit card sprayed with disinfectant before it was handed back to me.

I was told I might have to wear a mask giving birth.

I saw a man out walking pull his mask down to take a drag on his cigarette, then put the mask back up to protect his health.

I saw a group of women SCREAMING at a guy hiking at the top of a mountain to put a mask on.

Competitive swimmers practiced 6 feet apart in chlorinated water.

In Pennsylvania, youth baseball infielders have to put on their masks if there is a base runner.

In New York, high school cross country runners have to wear a mask while competing.

The arrows you had to follow in the grocery store. Because viruses can only attack you if you’re going certain directions down aisles.

Target forced everyone to go in and out of the same entrance because of Covid restrictions.

Restricting what people could buy after they were already inside the store. I heard one old guy was not allowed to purchase river rocks that he had already put in his cart, because it had come from a banned aisle.

We decided to use the lockdown to start a garden and we weren’t allowed to go to the garden section of the store and had to buy everything on Amazon.

SCOTUS ruling that Nevada can allow casinos, restaurants, and other businesses to operate at 50% percent of capacity with proper social distancing, while simultaneously barring churches from doing the same.

Closing all the small businesses, schools, and churches— but pretending it’s perfectly fine to cram the entire community into the single open Costco & Walmart in town.

CALIFORNIA: A recent poll of 1,000 registered voters found Elder in the lead with 16%. John Cox and Kevin Faulconer tied for second with 6% and Kevin Kiley and Caitlyn Jenner tied for third with 4%. The majority of those polled (53%) said they hadn’t decided yet.

CANADA: In the past two months, forty-eight Christian churches, including Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox, have been vandalized and even burned to the ground. The Slime Stream Media is largely ignoring it, because … you know … Christianity. Also the perps are Progressives.

CATHOLIC: At a Thursday press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, invoked her status as a mother and “devout Catholic” as she stated that taxpayer-funding for abortion is a “priority” for her party.

Also on Thursday, Nancy’s archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, issued a statement in which he said, “No one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it. The right to life is a fundamental—the most fundamental—human right, and Catholics do not oppose fundamental human rights.”

The smoke screen of abortion as an issue of health and fairness to poor women is the epitome of hypocrisy: What about the health of the baby being killed? What about giving poor women real choice, so they are supported in choosing life? This would give them fairness and equality to women of means, who can afford to bring a child into the world.”

The “people of faith” who run crisis pregnancy centers “provide poor women life-giving alternatives to having their babies killed in their wombs. I cannot be prouder of my fellow Catholics who are so prominent in providing this vital service. To them I say: You are the ones worthy to call yourselves ‘devout Catholics!’

GENDER: Yeah, so this really happened. The Norwegian women’s beach handball team petitioned the European Handball Federation for permission to wear more modest sports bras with tight-fitting, stretchy shorts when competing. They say the regulation uniforms are uncomfortable and make them feel unnecessarily sexualized.

The bosses said, nope. The rules say, “Women should wear a bikini where the top should be a tight-fitting sports bra with deep openings at the arms. The bottom must not be more than 10 centimeters on the side.

The team reports that at first, they we were told they’d be fined 50 euros per person per match, if they wore the more modest outfits. They decided it was worth it, but when they showed up without their side boobs and butt cheeks hanging out, they were told they would be disqualified if they didn’t change.

Meanwhile, the men’s teams wear tank tops and shorts. Where are the feminists?!

NEWSBUSTERS: On Wednesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, weekend host Jonathan Capehart said humans might have to fly into space to find a safe place to live.

On Friday’s The View, co-host Sunny Hostin claimed that the 2nd Amendment was “designed to protect slavery.

NIGERIA: From January 1 to July 18, 2021, Islamic Jihadists and their collaborators in the security forces have murdered 3, 462 defenseless Christians, abducted or killed ten priests or pastors, and threatened, attacked, destroyed, burnt or forced to close approximately 300 Christian churches. Meanwhile, the government of Nigeria does nothing about it.

Please pray for pray for the souls of those who have been killed and for their grieving friends and family. Please pray that those who persecute the church or stand by as it happens will repent and find salvation in Christ. Please pray that the world will recognize the scale of the suffering that believers endure in Nigeria and put pressure on the leaders to protect their Christian citizens.

NORTH KOREA: As food shortages cause skyrocketing food prices and even more starvation than usual, the state media has been extolling dear leader for living in a “modest mansion” and reportedly rejecting luxurious amenities.

Meanwhile, Kim Jong Un’s largest (of four) luxury watercraft was seen on Monday being towed towards his sprawling Wonsan mansion complex on the east coast. The custom 260-foot luxury yacht features dual twisting water slides, an Olympic sized pool, and a multi-story lounge area.

NSA: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2673057676327612&notif_id=1627152137948053 [5:15] to hear a Fox News report about our own government surveilling a journalist the reigning Democrats don’t like … again.

TIKTOK: The blackout challenge (aka, the passout challenge or the fainting game) is a dangerous new social media trend that is apparently even more stupid and dangerous than the Tide Pod challenge was.

In the challenge, TikTok users choke themselves until they lose consciousness. As they regain consciousness, they experience a euphoria-like feeling. So far there are four reported deaths, all of 9- to 12-year-olds.

VAX: The FDA has added Guillain-Barré Syndrome as a possible adverse side effect of the J&J COVID-19 vaccine. This came after 100 reports to VAERS, 95 of which were serious and required hospitalization. There was one death.

YAF: Erik Suarez, a rising senior and Young Americans for Freedom activist at Penn State University was successful in convincing the administration to remove a Fidel Castro quote from a university wall.
