COVID response is about control
This is the first time in my life I ever have seen our Commonwealth and nation shut down over a virus. People claiming the mantle of expert and our politicians have clamped down on our rights and our ability to make a living claiming it is for our own good.
I have a few simple questions about the tactics which seems to hurt us while leaving Gov. Andy Beshear and his inner circle unscathed.
If this is truly about health then why:
Are most small businesses shut down statewide yet no one government employee has been laid off?
Are barber shops and hair salons shut down, yet Gov. Beshear shows up for his daily briefing primped and powdered for all to see?
Are doctors and dentists told not to treat people for elective procedures while the doors to the abortion clinic are kept wide open?
Are citizens threatened with fines and jail for ignoring executive orders while real criminals are being set loose?
Are we being told to mail in our votes when we can go to the grocery or hardware store?
Are we being told that starting May 11 we have to wear a mask in public when there is little or no evidence that masks prevent the spread of the Wuhan virus.
Are we being told that churches must close while the liquor stores remain open?
So, is this really about public health or just a power grab by those who don’t want a perceived crisis to go to waste?
