Anti-lockdown protesters want freedom. Really?
My 18 year old son is in his 11th day of quarantine. He is quarantining because he played basketball 10 days ago and someone on the opposing team was COVID positive. This poor kid is quarantining in his bedroom and has sole use of the family bathroom. We leave food at his door and wash our hands after clearing his dishes. He only leaves his room, masked to go to the bathroom and get tested. This is the requirement of DHHS. His six teammates are also quarantining, some in their bedrooms and some with their families. He is a social kid so he is doing it tough but he is doing this to protect his family and his community. I am disturbed and angered that thousands of people marched on the weekend for their freedom. Is it really freedom? Its certainly easy to package it up as freedom. Does this freedom mean that they dont need the governments assistance in the future? I wonder?
So many people think this is a conspiracy, not a pandemic. I dont think any government would willingly restrict their constituents to work or close businesses if they didnt need to. Taxpayers have been quite important in the past.
