First off, when countries return to the green zone that means new cases are at least on a prolonged downtrend or already exceedingly low. So, green zones are good. But they create a false and phoney sense of security -- which immediately leads to reflexive and heartfelt calls for opening up.
THAT inevitably leads to dropping your guard as an individual: not getting vaccinated, foregoing the second dose, removing masks, stop using hand sanitizers in public places and not respecting social distancing precautions.
THAT leads to inevitable spikes in cases and recurring outbreaks. And with each ending of a lockdown comes new cases that mostly severely affect the health or kill the unvaccinated. Take the United States as an example: who is getting killed off or is ending up health disabled for life? Why Trump Republicans and other Republicans more than any other groups. Those who get lucky end up in the emergency room and as their health increasingly fails, intensive care. If they survive, they are suddenly and magically converted on the road to Damascus...
THAT leads to just one example of a Conservative radio host who was steadfastly against vaccines, got COVID-19, ended up in intensive care and if he makes it, will crusade on radio going forward in favour of vaccination.
THAT leads to this question: why does it take a personal health crisis and near-death experience to convert these people? What's common sense before they get sick, or while they're sick, is still common sense once they're no longer sick.
FINALLY, THAT leads to this: we will never return to normal until COVID-19 is obliterated across the globe. Sure, it originated in a wet market. Sure, it was repeatedly genetically modified in a lab with various types of variants created with a different intensity as to its level of being contagious or leading to morbidity. So, the worst is yet to come when they roll out the variants that will likely kill 80-90% of those people that catch those future variants. COVID-19 has always been and is today a weapon of war.
Every war college across the planet has studied it and learned invaluable lessons in preparation for a potential WWIII. In the old days, we called it germ warfare. Today we call it, for now, a bioweapon induced health pandemic.
So, stay smart, take precautions, recognize that the old normal is years and years away and protect yourself, your families, friends, other loved ones and respect strangers. Vaccines are essential but they are not a panacea -- regrettably, future deadly variants will prove that in the short to medium term. But some protection is far better than no protection when they ultimately appear in the future.

Justin Trudeau Parody Below:
Hi, my name is Justin Trudeau and I'm your Prime Minister! I've been very good at smiling a lot, being woke, putting myself before the spotlight (always my highest priority) and also like to buy people off with taxpayer's money. I like to pretend that I listen to people's concerns and actually care what you think -- when in reality I only care what I think.
So, my electoral strategy is to play all of you for saps: you know, pretend that I'm really working in your interests but nah, in reality I feel that people are gullible enough to fall for my act and vote solely based on how much of someone else's money I throw at them. Yeah, just buy them all off and make phoney 9th inning gestures like choosing an aboriginal GG while not ever meeting my full-funding and timetable commitments on mercury poisoning, clean water, first-rate housing and of course, the biggie: First Nations Self-Government.
Ha, ha, ha, I can play the lot of you: come on, give me my majority back. After all, I've already earned it just by allowing all of you to have the honour of having me as your Prime Minister.

Mother of God, what a find: Carney At Wimbledon. It ain't war room gold. In fact, it's far better than that: it's war room platinum. Even Michael wasn't anywhere close to being that tone deaf. Kinsella put it out as an ultimate pro: he lets that precious photo speak for itself and it scores all the points needed to win the match.
And the topper: at least Katie and Gerald weren't bona fide members of the upper classes when they got the big payoff in TAXPAYER "moving" expenses. For Christ's sake, the script almost writes itself. How can Carney be that stupid???
Frankly, I'm happier than a pig in shit. Watch the oppo roll out on this one. It'll be memorable. JustVisitingTM took the match when Michael was already in place. This gem may take Carney out politically, even before he takes those all important baby steps.
Finally, Freeland is having a pretty good day.
