Last week in Lansing, MI (the capitol, where I am living), thousands of people held a protest. These people were supposed to remain in their cars, but one by one, they trickled onto the capitol building's lawn and paraded the streets of Lansing. Some were carrying signs, some were fully outfitted with assault rifles and ammunition, and some were just there to be there. While they were 'exercising their rights', many people living in Lansing were afraid in their homes, listening to the orchestra of car horns and screaming.
I am so embarrassed for all of those people.
Now, there are more emerging cases of the virus in counties that previously had very few cases. Gee, I wonder if collecting in Lansing to protest helped with that? Our Governor was going to slowly start opening up the state this week. I didn't listen to her most recent talk, but I would be willing to bet that all of these selfish people are going to slowdown our state re-opening even further.
If that happens, I just want to know why they couldn't wait two weeks more and continue abiding by the rules set in place so hopefully things would start improving.
In other news, the "rescue" that I got one of my horses from has been posting on her personal page often about the virus. A few months ago now she shared a picture of Minnie and I on her personal and rescue page, without my permission, taken from my personal page. I didn't like this, but it didn't hurt anything, and at the very least showed I know my stuff. Well the combination of having a picture of me on her page and discriminatory posts about the virus, I officially told her to take down any pictures including me. I haven't read her response, and I'm not going to. I don't want to be affiliated with her in any way, especially if I want to ever start training horses ago. I support all fellow humans, not all fellow humans minus "the Chinese virus ones".
