Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Do not confuse or conflate popularity with sanity or morality. Approximately one in five hundred people in America has now died from covid. This could have been avoided if people had not been so desperate to return to exactly the life they had before the pandemic the moment they could. They didn't wait until there was little or no more covid in their County they waited until the churches reopened, till the bars reopened, till the dance clubs reopened and then they flooded in even if they hadn't been vaccinated. Encourage others to use precaution or starting this October we're going to start losing friends and family.

I remember watching this movie as a kid (12~13 years old). I'm astonished at how accurate some of his "prophecies" were.

Hard to believe Charly came out over 50 years ago - a film bearing many instructive lessons.

We are a nation of whiny children and our "leaders" are cowards who give into their temper tantrums over the least little inconvenience. But lets not forget they also cater to the demands of the 1% who buy their fealty with campaign cash to keep those businesses, schools and daycare open and allow the virus to spread like wildfire.

There was a moment in 2020 when the nation, reeling from the spread and shock of mass graves full of body bags did the right things only to quickly be overwhelmed by ----- babies who demanded their haircuts and bowling. Other nations do it right and despite them having less resources to fight the virus are more effective than the US.

Now even with a vaccine that will halt the spread, the numbnuts, empowered by facebook memes, are allowing the virus to spread and mutate. The MU variant is beginning to take over. These anti-vax and anti-mask morons are dying at breakneck pace to "own the libs". Just do us all a favor and wear your "DUMMY" signs prominently so we can steer a wide path away from your personal hotspot.

I first watched this movie in the 7th grade with classmates and about half the class wept when Charlie gave this speech.
