In our 29th episode of the Madness Chronicles, we’ll take a look at the madness of California Governor Gavin Newsom. Remember, madness is a state of being mentally ill, severely, extremely foolish behavior, and a state of frenzied or chaotic activity. Let’s take a look at our current madness of Comrade Newsom.
As we head into the holiday’s guidance was provided to Californians for their upcoming activities. The first restriction is that no more than three households may gather together in one place. The host of the gathering must get the name and address of everyone attending. What they’re supposed to do with that information is unclear.
Well, you decider, okay, I can deal with that. Not so fast. All gatherings must be outside. That’s right, you’re not meeting around the dining room table this Thanksgiving. However, Comrade Newsom says you can go inside to use the bathroom one at a time. And the bathroom has to be sanitized after each use.
Let’s say your yard isn’t big enough for a gathering, or perhaps you don’t have a yard? In that case, you are permitted to gather at a park. Provided, of course, that there are no other gatherings of your friends nearby. And it goes without saying everyone must wear a mask. Masks can only be taken off while eating. The virus is so remarkably unique that it cannot be transmitted while eating. The Governor is on top of this one. And by the way, no gathering can last more than two hours.
Is that everything? Hardly. Everyone present must be socially distanced at all times, including while seated. Food must be in single-serve disposable containers and must be served to guests. There is no self-service allowed in homes or otherwise. If you don’t have any disposable containers for some reason, then one person must serve your guests and must wash their hands often.
All guests must be seated at least six feet from other guests as measured from all directions. Think about the space required if three families of four each were to attend.
Let’s say you think it might rain, so you put up a tent. Comrade Newsom has that covered as well. Any outside covering is okay as long as three sides of the tent are open at all times. And with that six-foot in any direction rule on seating, you better have a huge tent and a yard to put it in.
If your gathering is thinking about having music, well, the Governor has thought of that. The music must be provided by your guests. However, no instruments are permitted if you have to blow into them to make noise.
How about singing? That is covered under the section on ‘Rules for Singing, Chanting, and Shouting at Outdoor Gatherings.’ It seems our Comrade has thought of everything. Singing is okay, provided you sing with a mask on and are socially distanced when you do it. If you must sing, chant, or shout, he asks that you do so in a voice at or below conversational levels. You couldn’t make this up if you stayed up all night thinking about it.
They’ve always said the nation’s trends start in California and move east. We sure hope that is not the case at holiday gatherings. California is home to 12% of the United States population and over 33% of the nation’s welfare recipients, and 25% of the countries homeless population. They can keep these self-inflicted trends.
May we wake from this madness before it’s too late. I wish you good health, and until next time, have fun, enjoy life, and watch out for the madness amongst us. It’s 2020, and it’s getting out of hand.
