UPDATE: Shitlibs are having a fit about this and reporting the video on YouTube. You can still watch it here.
Didn’t everyone already know this?
A year ago, it seemed like most people in Alabama responded to the lockdown we had here last April by rolling their eyes and going hunting or fishing and enjoying spring weather. I saw a lot of people outside riding four wheelers and jet skiing with their friends and family. I remember being chastised in the comment section for not wearing a mask while loling away the pandemic by going fishing with the family out in the middle of nowhere. Some would call that “social distancing” while I would call it sizing up the nature of the threat and enjoying myself doing what I like to do in the spring anyway.
It has become increasingly clear to me that what I experienced in rural Alabama where there was only minimal disruption to the rhythms of everyday life is not what other people experienced in other states. In Blue States like Oregon, this shit is still going on even after people have been vaccinated. There were draconian lockdowns in places like Michigan and New York which we never experienced here.
