HALLOWEEN HIJINKS

It's almost Halloween, and parents afraid to let children go out? First it was drugs in candies, then razors, then predators, it makes me want to shout! You know what the boogeyman it is this year! Why COVID, of course, how we love living in fear! Even though the numbers have been clarified we love the inaccurate ones, of course. Fake News keeps posting inaccurate numbers, so how much of living fully have we all lost? Plenty, I say! Lost wages, lost time with friends and family. Blue "Pampers" on our faces? Such a ridiculous, inhumane display. Of course time to cash in, masks in polka dots, leopard or lush pink. No wonder people are not only on drugs, but also, the heavier they drink. What does a mouth or smile look like anyway? Muffled words, no full out laughter, gives me vertigo and brain-sway. Churches locked tight, but a city, fine to burn? Casinos, Costco wall to wall people, but of God, or to sing in a chapel? You are forbidden to respect, honor and to learn. In the USA, the right to assemble peacefully is hardly a joke. But Portland has had over 100 days of rioting... Are these folks on coke? I don't know if the freedom I once knew, will ever be allowed to be? Just masks, social distancing till I die, and the sad part is....I will never be free! September 15, 2020 4pm PST

It's Hallo-ween coming. So let's have a weenie roast! How about roasting all Democrat governors first. Put their feet to the fire, I say! ~ Charcoal Broil

You paint the picture as it is, Pangie...no beating round the bush! The world is going crazy, and we definitely cannot blame it all on Covid-19! I wonder if I should go back in time or skip over to the future, long enough to avoid the present! ~ Regards // paul

Thanks Paul.ans we are goofy enough to follow rules? Why? You can look at America's big cities where no rules are followed. Just murder and pillaging. And that's OK.? I am sure our ancestors did not like their present either. They did something about it. What about us? We can't GP back or forward just create the present you want.!)! Thanks. Pangie xx

Its up to us to change it. We fought wars on other continents but we won't fight a mask? A mystery to me. Pangie Xx

I wonder if people know they have been had. I guess not. Sheep of the social media. We all Outnumber those in office. Who act like kings and queerns. What about individuals? Pangie xx

Chantelle..the nuts who run LA want no parties, no trick or treating and no trunk or treating. They act like leaders of Commmunist Red China. This is most dangerous. Celebrate and forget the rest. Portland riots are OK for 100 days. One night of kids going out is evil? Baloney! Thank you Pangie xx

Unbelievable how entire nations quiver! Don't they get it? NO. What a power grab from people. Especially kids. Locked indoors year round like cats and dogs. Honored to have you FAV this! One could be a mask for Halloween. All hail the mask! Ugh. Thanks, my friend, Pangiex
