New Randy Rainbow Video-COVER YOUR FREAKIN’ FACE! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody

Logic and common sense are concepts that are usually timeless and universal.

For example, common sense says that when you get into a car, you buckle up. If G-d forbid there is an accident, the seat belt reduces the chances of severe injury and death. As Covid-19 continues it’s stranglehold on humanity, some idiots refuse to wear a mask. A mask, like a seat belt, save lives.

Enter Randy Rainbow’s newest video, COVER YOUR FREAKIN’ FACE! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody.

Using the song Put On a Happy Face from the musical Bye Bye Birdie, Rainbow uses his trademark humor to remind Americans (especially you know who) to put on a dam mask.

Personally, I don’t think that the concept takes a rocket scientist to understand it. But then again, you know who did proclaim himself a “stable genius” at one point.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I a hoping that this nation comes to its senses and votes for Joe Biden in November.

When Should We Re-Open the Country?

With most of the country closed due to Covid-19, many have been asking when we can re-open the country?

I’m not a doctor, nor am I a scientist. But logic tells me that when we re-open, we cannot go back to where we were in early March as if nothing has happened. Depending on how hard the disease has it a certain area, re-opening must be done in stages. If history has taught us anything about epidemics, it is not to underestimate a virus.

In 1918, as World War I raged and the Spanish Flu killed millions, officials in Philadelphia bowed to pressure and chose not to cancel a parade. The result of this decision was the filling of the city’s hospitals and the death of thousands of people.

Across the country, there have been protests in regards to the stay at home orders. Three states across the South will soon be re-opening their economies.

I get it, I really do. It’s fine to stay home for a day or two to take a break from the daily grind. But staying home for a month or more without knowing when you can return to normalcy is frustrating. Especially when millions are out of work and not every employee has the opportunity to work from home.

I also get and respect the right to protest when we disagree with our governmental leaders. But I also know that New York City (where I live) is the national epicenter of this crisis. If the city (and the country by extension) were to open too soon, it might trigger a second or even third wave of hospitalizations and deaths.

My humble opinion is that the country as a whole can only open when testing is widely available and the number of cases is as close to zero as we can get. Then and only then, we can even consider opening the country and the economy.
