The wife of a friend of mine passed away from cancer and due to the lock-down communication was limited so we just learned of her passing. The funeral wasn't allowed, those that attended the "service" could only watch from their cars and only a few were allowed to do that. A celebration of her life will be held at a later time when it can be done correctly- except for the delayed date. I'll tell ya, I have had it with this crap and the G==ks that perpetrated it.

Hello Ray,

My sincere condolences.

That situation / severe restriction toward loved ones in attendance and those who were banned from attendance was just cruel.

The wretched governments don’t act like this when strep throat is sweeping their respective countries.

This mass hysteria is ridiculous.
Talk about the tail wagging the dog.

Regards,
Paul.

Where did this take place?

It took place in Leavenworth, WA (geographic center of the state). the virus rates were never very high east of the mountains(the populated Puget Sound area was the hot spot). But with migrants coming in to work the fruit sheds where they were in close contact, the virus spread. But the migrant community who generally speak Spanish have minimal contact with the local residents who primarily speak English, so while the one sector of the population had a spike in virus the remainder of the population was virtually virus free. However that didn't seem to matter to the authorities who kept everything locked-down including elective treatment in the hospital- so our friend was unable to get "non-emergency" treatment. She had been found a year ago to be cancer-free, but it popped-up in another organ. I don't know that receiving treatment would have mattered, but one thing is clear, she didn't get it and now she's dead. so tally up another to the politicians that are trying to milk all they can from this disease.

So sad! My deepest condolences to her family.
The purpose of government has been abused for a very long time, IMO. Not what the country founders had planned.

Covid patients should be treated in another totally separate place.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
