Corona Crazy

Gas·light
/ˈɡaslīt/
verb
  1. To manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity.

WE MUST FLATTEN THE CURVE so our healthcare system doesn’t get overrun!!  Flatten the curve, flatten the curve, STAY HOME TO FLATTEN THE CURVE!!!  But now that the curve is flattening, can we talk about opening up the economy?  What’s the matter with you??? 500,000 PEOPLE WILL DIE unless you STAY HOME so just STAY HOME!!  But our hospitals are not overrun in most areas and people are really suffering economically, so let’s discuss-WHY DO YOU WANT GRANDMA TO DIE?  WHAT? I don’t Grandma to die, I’m just concerned about the negative impact of massive job loss and self isolation-100,000-200,000 PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED TO DIE and you can’t park yourself on the couch for awhile longer? Stop being SO SELFISH!  I just…wait, didn’t you just say 1/2  a million people would die? Where’s your mask?  For the love of God WHY AREN’T YOU WEARING A MASK??? Because you said they weren’t effective.  Now back to the estimated deaths, you said earlier that-LOOK, 60,000 people are EXPECTED TO DIE all because YOU WON’T WEAR A MASK!! Um, 60,000?  What happened to-WHY DO YOU HATE NURSES? But I don’t hate nurses and now my head is spinning! I’m going for a run on the beach.  THE BEACHES ARE CLOSED!!! Why?  Exercise and fresh air are good for the immune system and I’m not a threat to any-Beaches, Parks and hiking trails ARE ALL CLOSED!!!  Fine, I’ll jog on the sidewalk then.  ONLY IF YOU REMAIN 6 FEET AWAY FROM OTHERS!  But that’s impossible now, as neighborhood streets/sidewalks are teaming with people who have nowhere else to go.  WHY DO YOU WANT GRANDMA TO  DIE?????

I need a drink.

  2. Have you seen the meme that says something like, “If you drink wine with a glass in each hand, it will help you remember not to touch your face.”

    This was a trial run by China to dominate the US and a big part of the world economy. If we don’t get up and running again they will succeed. Red flag alert!
    I don’t participate and go about my daily chores with little inconvenience.

    Tricia,
    Here’s the version that’s running around twixt me and my cobbers…
    COVID-19 RULES AS OF TODAY: 😂🤔
    …Thanks Experts and also Governors Inslee, Newsome & Cuomo…

    1. Basically, you can’t leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can.

    2. Masks are useless, but maybe you have to wear one, it can save you, it is useless, but maybe it is mandatory as well.

    3. Stores are closed, except those that are open.

    4. You should not go to hospitals unless you have to go there. Same applies to doctors, you should only go there in case of emergency, provided you are not too sick.

    5. This virus is deadly but still not too scary, except that sometimes it actually leads to a global disaster.

    6. Gloves won’t help, but they can still help.

    7. Everyone needs to stay HOME, but it’s important to GO OUT.

    8. There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarket, but there are many things missing when you go there in the evening, but not in the morning. Sometimes.

    9. The virus has no effect on children except those it affects.

    10. Animals are not affected, but there is still a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested, plus a couple dogs and a few tigers here and there…

    11. You will have many symptoms when you are sick, but you can also get sick without symptoms, have symptoms without being sick, or be contagious without having symptoms. Oh, my..

    12. In order not to get sick, you have to eat well and exercise, but eat whatever you have on hand and it’s better not to go out, well, but no…

    13. It’s better to get some fresh air, but you get looked at very wrong when you get some fresh air, and most importantly, you don’t go to parks or walk. But don’t sit down, except that you can do that now if you are old, but not for too long or if you are pregnant (but not too old).

    14. You can’t go to retirement homes, but you have to take care of the elderly and bring food and medication.

    15. If you are sick, you can’t go out, but you can go to the pharmacy.

    16. You can get restaurant food delivered to the house, which may have been prepared by people who didn’t wear masks or gloves. But you have to have your groceries decontaminated outside for 3 hours. Pizza too?

    17. Every disturbing article or disturbing interview must start with ” I don’t want to trigger panic, but…”

    18. You can’t see your older mother or grandmother, but you can take a taxi and meet an older taxi driver.

    19. You can walk around with a friend but not with your family if they don’t live under the same roof.

    20. You are safe if you maintain the appropriate social distance, but you can’t go out with friends or strangers at the safe social distance.

    21. The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours, no, four, no, six, no, we didn’t say hours, maybe days? But it takes a damp environment. Oh no, not necessarily.

    22. The virus stays in the air – well no, or yes, maybe, especially in a closed room, in one hour a sick person can infect ten, so if it falls, all our children were already infected at school before it was closed. But remember, if you stay at the recommended social distance, however in certain circumstances you should maintain a greater distance, which, studies show, the virus can travel further, maybe.

    23. We count the number of deaths but we don’t know how many people are infected as we have only tested so far those who were “almost dead” to find out if that’s what they will die of

    24. We have no treatment, except that there may be one that apparently is not dangerous unless you take too much (which is the case with all medications). Orange man bad.

    25. We should stay locked up until the virus disappears, but it will only disappear if we achieve collective immunity, so when it circulates… but we must no longer be locked up for that?

  8. You are absolutely right, Tricia! Be of good cheer, you’re not crazy and what you are observing is right on the mark. Emotionalism and human psychology are a total trip, too! And that is what has a grip on us right now, that is what is ruling over many people.

    Thank you for sharing this Tricia. I have heard the term “gaslight”, but have never really knew what it actually fully meant. Until now. I try to limit what I read and watch. Though I did happen to see this video on Twitter posted by a friend about so many conflicting things, you don’t know if you are coming and going. I did end up finding it on YouTube, so I could share it with you. Good for a laugh during these strange days. Please take care Tricia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVs5AyjzwRM

    Reblogged this on Citizen Tom and commented:
    This is both hilarious and kind of sad. When we become consumed by our emotions, we don’t think; we react.

    Fear can be a especially strong emotion. When we are afraid, we risk losing control. Courage is required to regain self control.

    From where does courage come? Love. The love of God and the love of our neighbors. When we have confidence in God’s love — trust Him — we can maintain peace in our hearts, and we can rejoice in what is good.

    Philippians 4:4-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
