The WHO Wants to Take Your Alcohol Away During the Pandemic
The WHO has gone too far. Bump that: The World Health Organization has gone too far. Out of respect for Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, I'm actually going to go to the trouble of writing out the full name. That collection of unelected bureaucratic douchebags has caused a lot of pain and suffering this year (see WHO Director: Politicizing COVID-19 Just Leads to More Body Bags and People of Hong Kong Plead for Trump’s Help Against China). Now they want to take away the one thing that makes being quarantined tolerable: alcohol.
Drinking alcohol can increase the risk of catching Covid-19 and governments around the world should limit access during coronavirus lockdowns, the World Health Organization said late Tuesday.
The WHO said alcohol consumption is associated with a number of communicable and noncommunicable diseases that can make a person more vulnerable to catching Covid-19.
“Therefore, people should minimize their alcohol consumption at any time, and particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the office said.
The World Health Organization can eat a dick. The World Health Organization can eat a dick and see if that increases the risk of catching Covid-19.
Obviously you shouldn't RELY on alcohol to get you through this. If you find yourself doing so, you might want to find a meeting on Zoom. But you're lucky I agreed to stay home for the time being. You don't get to tell me what I can enjoy while I'm there. If the World Health Organization wants to be useful, go get China on the phone and ask them what their government's plan is to make amends for the pain and suffering they caused the planet. I'll wait here. With three fingers of Four Roses Single Barrel. And that's just for breakfast.
I actually meant to be more tongue-in-cheek with this post. But I keep going back to "governments around the world should limit access during coronavirus lockdowns" and am trying to think what's worse: The unelected bureaucrats who feel it's their divine right to tell elected governments what to do? Or the elected governments that seem more than happy to do so?
Either way, I'll be sitting next to a refrigerator full of civil disobedience. Come at me.
