Don’t push them too far.

May 23, 2020

Seen in the back window of a car: “Social distancing can be done vertically as well as horizontally.”

Is it an implied threat? That’s up to you to decide.

But consider this scenario.

A woman, we’ll call her “Madeline,” left her house two days in a row. On the third day, a group of people blocked her driveway and tried to stop her from leaving her house, citing her age as a reason to keep her locked up in her house.

“It’s for your own good” they intoned.  Madeline, age 70, wasn’t having any of it.  She called the police and asked them to clear her driveway. The cops asked why she was leaving, and she told them she had a doctor’s appointment.

She also warned the cops that, being an old lady, she might accidentally stomp on the accelerator rather than the brake if the people didn’t move.

The police did move the group, and Madeline went to her appointment.

In short, folks are wise to this crap.

This is not the America our fathers and grandfather’s fought to defend.
