NJ is scared and offended about everything

How many people have been quietly observing the world around them – especially during the last six months?

So much is happening these days, right?

Before the “crisis,” many various “bubbles” were growing in size. Too many to itemize, but I think you know what I am referring to. Tensions all around. Between residents of this state and country. Pick any topic practically – and there is more polarity today than ever before.

Race. Gender. Finance. Rights. Rules. Regulations. Riots. Protests. Most of all – some kind of political correctness that is over the top. You almost can’t say ONE THING in 2020 without offending someone. You ever wonder how or why it’s just getting worse by the day?

Take a look at this Audi “tweet” for example. A simple car ad with a girl and a car. People got so offended that they literally wanted Audi to die. For a creative photo. Full-on boycott. And to make matters worse – Audi actually apologized! We would have never apologized to anyone. We’d say “get over it” before we ever caved to the PC mob.

Amazing how just about anything will “trigger” rage in a fair number of individuals. Something is building – and it’s not good.

Now the crisis has made bad even worse!

The photo at the top of this article is just one example. Park outside any store anywhere. And observe for a little while. You can get a pretty good snapshot of “the new normal” in a short while.

  • People wearing masks (yet touching handles, their faces, etc.)
  • Little children wearing masks (why put them through that?)
  • People looking at you funny if YOU are not wearing a mask
  • Most people “arm” their car alarms, even in low-crime areas.
  • But still obedient robots consuming commercial food and drink right on schedule.

You get this feeling that the populous is under a spell. Hypnotized. Perhaps by fear. Maybe due to “social compliance.” Who knows.

But it’s a Twilight Zone episode I want to stop seeing like RIGHT NOW.

Let’s do it.
