Cruise Ships in the CDC Dock

To add insult to injury, the CDC also reiterated its recommendation that “all people avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide.” It apparently irks the CDC autocrats that they can’t rule globally. Because while CDC officials still have nightmares over the botched Diamond Princess cruise saga, the rest of the world has moved on. European and Asian cruises have reopened with great success. The Cruise Lines International Association says more than 400,000 passengers have traveled since last summer, with few Covid cases. Cruise lines are perfectly capable of operating with protocols.

The Biden team has made no effort to intercede, as it sees the benefit of using the continued lockdown as proof we are still in a “crisis” (and therefore in need of more spending). White House press secretary Jen Psaki reminded the nation we should remain grateful the president will allow us a small, July 4 barbecue, which “is quite different from cruises, of course.”

The Covid crisis created many new power players, but none so frightening as the public health official. The cruise sector is evidence of the urgent need for a discussion about how best to keep that megalomaniacal bureaucracy in check.”

It's a good thing there are community guidelines on this blog to prevent me from typing up how I feel about this statement.

Come on down to Florida ... barbecuing since July .... 2020 !!  ?

We never stopped having back yard gatherings. It's not difficult to maintain space between individuals outside and the recommendations have always been "wear a mask indoors where the ability to maintain six feet of separation isn't possible."

Outdoors AND spaced apart - easy to do. And we've kept on keepin' on.
