I see by the local news that you are holding another press conference to let us know what new hell you are going to put us through with your mandates and restrictions. There are a couple of things you might want to consider before becoming even more drunk with power than you already are.
You say that your rules are for "the greater good." I am pretty sure that sweet girl with the lovely smile and friendly manner who waits tables at the restaurant down the street isn't thinking about "the greater good" now that you have deemed her job "nonessential." That job is essential to her when she needs to pay her rent and feed her kids. I wonder how many meals she and many others like her skip in order to have enough food for her children to eat. You don't look like you have missed any meals, Governor.
Then there is the fellow who has worked hard all his life to build up his small business. He has already drained his life savings just to pay his loyal employees and keep his business afloat but very soon he will run out of time and money and his doors will close forever. He has treated his small staff of employees like family and now he will have to let them all go, through no fault of his own. But I'm guessing that you and those in your office are still being paid. Paid by people like the business owner that you have put out of business.
Lets talk about the kids. The ones whose chances of contracting the virus are slim and none. The ones you won't allow back in school. The ones you won't allow to play sports. The ones you want to keep from gathering with their friends like kids are supposed to do. The ones who are being cheated out of an education and a childhood. Those kids.
And then there are the elderly. The Grandmas and Grandpas who would give anything just to hug a grandchild again. The ones in nursing homes who don't understand why they have been abandoned. The ones who die alone. All because of your rules and regulations.
I understand there is a virus going around. I also understand it is no worse than the flu we deal with every year. This is not about a virus. It is about fear and control, for when a population is fearful, they are easier to control.
I am here to tell you, Governor, that some of us are not afraid. We are mad as hell. We are tired of being treated like children who haven't enough sense to take care of themselves. Most of us have grown up, raised families, worked for our livings and made decisions without consulting you. And now you think we are OK with you telling us what to wear, where we can go, what we can do.
Perhaps it is high time you remembered, Governor, that you work for us and not the other way around.
