Who was that masked progressive?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is taking its knee off America’s collective neck a notch or two (Blaska, you insensitive bastard!) by allowing the citizenry to “participate in outdoor activities and recreation without a mask, except in certain crowded settings and venues.”
Yeah, you need a chart to tell which outdoor activities and in which certain settings (not to mention venues!) that you may be permitted to breathe — and only if you are two weeks past your final COVID-19 vaccination. (Now we know what it is like taking The Pill.) The head groundskeeper plans to go back for his third dose, chocolate mint-flavored if they still have it. The stuff is more amazing than those Relief Factor™ fish-oil pills former Trump advisor Dr. Sebastian Gorka (hey, it’s a tough job market out there) sells on Tucker Carlson’s show. (It’s the commercial with the inventor on one side and his son on the other side, who never gets any lines to speak.)
The coronavirus is real but we cannot help but wonder at people who drive on Madison’s Beltline highway, windows rolled up, all alone, but face masked up just the same! They’re watching too much CNN!
Risk factor is brain damage
Or the young man on the small motorcycle — no helmet, no gloves, flip flops on his feet but mask on his face! Out in God’s fresh air (except for the truck diesel fumes.) Risk factor from Covid for males b/w ages 18-29 = 2.0 for every 100 non-Covid deaths compared to 12.0 among those over age 65. Guys under age 40 are 36 times more likely to be killed riding motorcycle than driving car, truck or tractor. Masked or not.
Inspired by that CDC chart, the gray labcoats at Blaska Policy Werkes have devised their own graphic charting the risk factor of life in the peoples’ republic of Madison WI. (As with all Werkes products, no warranty is expressed or implied. Use at your own risk. Not valid in Manitowoc or Sheboygan. Do not operate heavy machinery unless you are pregnant or know someone who might be. Call the My Pillow Guy and induce vomiting if you develop a rash.)
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Just as Dennis Hopper was a fan of Pabst Blue Ribbon in the movie Blue Velvet, we are loyal to Moderna’s vaccine. (“F-BOMB Pfizer!”) The stuff is better than Alex Jones’ Brain Force Plus®, we think. (Therefore, we are.)
