Valentine Bemoaning

Warning: Political satire from a Conservative point of view -- if you feel you may be offended, do not read. Sincerely, Joe. Valentine bemoaning to Cupid what are we to do? Not an arrow of yours launched this year has found a political-heart that's true – blame it on the masks, you say, because Joe's went to Bill – and now Hillary is complaining, blaming her loss on Jill. Oh what sorrows we inadvertently send, when missing noble marks; freedom's trusted guard-dogs, exposed as pretentious barks – next year, more gold in their own socks, while the people they serve get, the same empty promises, weighted down with rocks –

"Boris Johnson today lifted all Covid mandates in Britain -- he followed the science, and came to the conclusion that most masks being used do not significantly stop virus spread, and Covid has now mutated to a virus of lesser severity, similar to that of a seasonal flu, telling everyone to try and get back to lifestyles enjoyed prior to pandemic. Period. USA wake up. The mandates and fear mongering in our Nation is about stuffing ballot boxes in next election, so results can be manipulated. There is no Voter Suppression in the USA...what there is is Truth Suppression. Don't be fools!"

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7680614/ Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize and prosper a scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when considering as preventive intervention for public health.

I keep trying to help steer this nation back to sanity. I really get no joy out of speaking against our present administration -- and I can't believe the numbers of educated people who support them -- it's mind boggling how people can know so much and yet know so little. Thank you Bill. Your pal, Joe.
