The Karma of Covid

Instant karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead

Have you noticed in the last eighteen months that we have a lot of “experts” on the subject of Covid? Have you noticed that almost all of them are not doctors or scientists? Have you noticed that they think their expertise gives them what they think is the right to tell everyone else how to live their lives during a pandemic?

I admit, it always amazes and amuses me when these pretentious experts have it come back on them and bite them in the ass.

KARMA?

Instant karma’s gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin’
Join the human race

The latest example of this is the esteemed Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott.

Under his leadership, or lack of, Texas has done almost everything wrong in the fight against Covid. Abbott opened up the state for business long before it was safe to do so. Money before health! Texas is currently reeling from a new surge of Covid cases. There are now more than eleven thousand Covid patients hospitalized throughout the state. They also lead the nation in pediatric Covid hospitalizations. He’s now railing against school districts that want to implement a mask mandate for students returning to in-class attendance. I could go on and on and on, but when it comes to Covid protocols, Greg Abbott is consistently on the opposite side of the science.

Monday night, he attended an indoor event of the Republican’s Club. In a packed ballroom, no masks were worn. Tuesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced he tested positive for Covid.

Karma?

Instant karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Everyone you meet

Here’s the definition of Karma:

The force generated by a person’s actions held in Hinduism and Buddhism to perpetuate transmigration and in its ethical consequences to determine the nature of the person’s next existence.

In layman’s terms, it’s basically what goes around, comes around.

So you tell me, was Greg Abbott hit by Karma, or is he just an asshole? There’s a fine line between the two….a very fine line.

Well, we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on and on, on and on

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
