Commissar Anthony Fauci Wants Us to Give Up Ever Shaking Hands Again!
Dr. Anthony Fauci has lost his mind--he wants us to give up ever shaking hands again.
Iíll put it off a few months, but I canít wait to shake hands again.
Shaking hands is one of the foundations of civilization.
Shaking hands is how you greet someone or say goodbye, how you show a man acceptance and trust, and how you do business.
When someone wanted my late father-in-law to do a job for him, delivering a load of gravel to his building site in Trinidad, he drove up to Ma and País house, Ma called to Pa from her perch at the front living room table and window, and Pa went outside and shook on it. A handshake was enough.
For centuries in colonial and independent America, that is the way deals were struck.
Fauci yesterday: ďI donít think we should ever shake hands ever again, to be honest with you.
ďNot only would it be good to prevent coronavirus disease; it probably would decrease instances of influenza dramatically in this country.
ďAs a society, just forget about shaking hands. We donít need to shake hands. Weíve got to break that custom. Because as a matter of fact, that is really one of the major ways that you can transmit a respiratory illness.Ē
Once, Anthony Fauciís visage was welcome in my living room, but between this and his conflicts of interest, heís worn out his welcome.
