The Long Game

Berlin (TSI)—Last week EU leaders agreed to keep borders open for the moment. They all spoke about taking tougher stances to fighting the new strain in Europe. But, that was last week. Now this week we have the leaders in Brussels arguing with the pharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca over vaccine delivery.

MEPs are also in a battle with the British government over who gets the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine first. I look on the news and all I see are a bunch of panicked stricken leaders behaving like children. Citizens of the EU and foreigners who live here like myself do not want to see scenes of bickering that lack clear leadership and direction.

You, (MEPs) who studied at the best schools and had the most privileged upbringing should know better, right? Well, apparently not, because all of you can’t seem to get your heads on straight. First, why would you keep borders open when there are new mutations running wild? In fact, why aren’t all borders closed indefinitely for the moment?

Why, aren’t all international flights halted completely until we get a hold on this nightmare? All EU borders (the debate of freedom of movement is bullshit) should be closed and state travel within any EU state should be stop completely unless it involves transport of goods. Leaders have asked the public not to travel unless it’s essential. At this point, we can see that certain members of the public can not be trusted to do their civil duties.

They are, (the public) let’s not forget, the main reason why this pandemic has persisted as it has. So you (the governments ) ask them not to travel, but they do it anyway and bring mutations in their “suitcases.” Then don’t ask anymore and just start the enactment of large fines and prison time. Maybe then they would get the point when their wife, husband, brother, sister, or parents are sitting in prison.

And the situation is worsening by the minute, we have people dying in nursing homes and hospitals. We have leaders who don’t really know what to do but are also worried about their economies. So they put your life at risk over a monetary system that doesn’t physically exist. You have a public that is extremely selfish and only think of themselves and fail to grasp the far reaching consequences of their actions. Children aren’t able to physically go back to school.

Young people starting university for their first time are having their experience ruined. Some people can’t receive badly needed surgery as scheduled because hospitals are full. Families can’t bury or cremate their love one’s because it’s a waiting list. Just recently, I learned my old teacher and mentor from high school died of COVID-19.

He was a good man and a Vietnam war hero. For three years I was in the R.O.T.C preparing to join the army after I finished high school. I remember I wanted to become a airborne ranger. After high school I decided against joining the military. Out of respect I won’t say my teachers name on this blog. But I’m sad and angry over his death. And then I look on TV and see these clownish people complaining about the lockdown is to long. Tell that to the families who have been devastated from this virus.

Who are you to complain about anything when some people can’t even feed their families? And then we have the weirdos in Amsterdam who were complaining and destroying property over the length of the lockdown in the Netherlands. So the lockdown is to long, tough shit! Deal with it!

I wish someone would shut these unicorns mouths. But none of these protesters think of the long game. We are fighting this virus for our children’s future…so we can return back to normality. There have been to many deaths from this virus at this point. We are passed the line of not taking this situation seriously.
