I will never forget and I will never forgive what the exploitation of this pandemic is doing to our kids.
I have been reluctant to write about the joke that school has become for my kids because I’m trying to MODERATE my anger for health reasons. But, as the carrot of going back to in-person learning five days a week keeps getting pushed back further and further, I know I’m not the only parent about to lose it.
Remote learning for my middle kid entails my wife sticking to him like glue to get anything accomplished. If my youngest is around, forget it, so when she’s not in preschool, she’s with my mom.
I am immensely lucky and blessed that my wife CAN stay at home with our kids, and that my parents live in Missoula to help out. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, I have no idea how other parents with less resources are managing this madness.
The lack of social interaction with their peers is having an impact. If one of their friends has a last name that puts them with a different group of kids, they don’t see that friend at school anymore. Maybe in the hallway they can mumble something to each other through the idiotic masks they’re being forced to wear, but that’s it.
So why are my kids being forced to continue remote learning while concerts are resuming at the Wilma and people can go to bars five days a week? Are they FLATTENING THE CURVE still?
As I go about my day to day I’m starting to get the feeling that the Corona-spell is beginning to wear off, so it’s a good thing for our sociopath oligarchs that an existential election in which AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS AT STAKE is about to go down in a few weeks. That should keep us in the grips of fear for awhile longer so the sociopaths can keep implementing their GREAT RESET.
If we ever stopped being afraid we could be quite a countervailing force to this sociopathic agenda being pushed on us. Consider that as you keep consuming their fear porn and accepting their supposed solutions.
