Fallbrook agit prop

This broadside was taped to the windows of all the downtown businesses yesterday. 

Well, all but mine anyway.

Not sure why I was skipped, perhaps they ran out of scotch tape.

My first thought when I read it was being reminded of John Lennon's Christmas 1971 release, Happy Xmas, the war is over. 

Unfortunately John was off by several years. And I think our scribe is calling the game and claiming victory a little prematurely too. 

Social distancing and masks are still necessary, although covid rates are dropping we are not yet out of the woods.

You may choose to live your life based on "your own decisions for your own health" but you still have a responsibility to be a responsible member of the hive and not get anyone else ill, Mr. or Mrs. Libertarian.

And I as a business owner have my rights too and I bristle when somebody tells me what to do in the best of times, and more so in dangerous times like these.

It sounds a bit authoritarian to declare that all businesses are to return to business as usual because you are telling me to. How about you piss off and stay out of my business. But thanks for letting me practice the guidelines as I see fit. Very big of you.

In a way this smacks of religion. There is a little of the "if enough people believe it at the same time we can make it happen" quality to the sign. I admire your faith but will stick with the medical authorities on this one, thank you.

Would be interesting to see who is responsible for this and how they figure to speak for the rest of We the citizens? Some idiot is going to read this false tract and actually believe it. I find it highly irresponsible and dangerous.

I am surprised that they did not pick March 4 for their coming out party. That is the day that Trump will be inaugurated as the new President!

Yes, I think this is linked to the March 4 installation of Trump as president again Qanon madness.
